Jesus said I am the way.He performed miracles to prove who He was and no one ever did anything as He did. All other ways of reaching Heaven will fall short.No one made the claims He did.
It`s not a command,but a voluntary belief that He is the Savior.
There is no religion attached to it.
Over The Hill, I agree. It's not about religion. I am a christian. Christianity is about a personal relationship with Jesus.
Religion is defined as a strong belief in a supernatural power that controls human destiny. Clearly, Jesus falls within this category.
I agree with the atheist on this one. Boy, that was hard to say. LOL.
I didn't know a dictionary could be an atheist. LOL.
well i think you haven't read other stories...jesus's miracle would look too simple in front of them...all religion have miracle stories...nothing new in it...
Well. Do you believe in the Bible? Do you believe in everything written there? If so, you cannot avoid to accept the truth written in Matthews 16:18, that is, "And I tell you that you are Peter,[a] and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades[b] will not overcome it." Jesus himself said He will build His church. He also said not even the gates of Hades will prevail against it. This refers not to the physical death experienced by all people, but to the second death, which is the lake of fire come Judgment Day.
Hi sergs, Are there some type of misunderstanding about my response above? Of course I believe everything written in the bible. I love the word of God.
Ok. Let's make it clear. For you, what is the difference between the two words Church and Religion? Is there any?
The church is a body of believers. Religion is a list of rules. Do you agree that Christianity is about a personal relationship and lifestyle with Jesus? What is the purpose of you asking that question?
Well. I only believe what is written. I don't believe in mere opinions. People will be judged not on what they believe is true but on what is the truth written in the Bible. If I can read that "Christianity is about a PERSONAL relationship and lifestyle with Jesus" in the Bible, then I would concede. Let's just talk about verses, not plain ideas. I'm sorry if I upset you. It's not my intention. If you know the truth but you do not share it with others, you are committing the sin of omission. If you do not warn others of the impending danger, they will die and you will be held accountable for their blood. I know you know these things. Let us just share ideas without hurt feelings, ok?
You did not upset me. What does Christianity mean to you? As I said before, I believe what is written in the bible also. No hard feelings, but why don't you respond to the topic of this thread? I look forward to your response. God bless you!
There is no one religion to believe in?
Goes to show how much you lack understanding, knowledge and a bunch other things.
The only ONE religion to believe in is LIVING LIFE! Enough said!
Cagsil, you are one extremely misguided individual.Your phylosophy of life is pathetic.Nothing awaits you but eternal damnation.I hope God will have mercy on you..
well misguided?...who cagsil , me or you? ...who decides that?...you may keep believing in what ever you want but how can you judge for others man?...even if you believe in something like jesus, i dont think jesus preached to judge people...did he?...
When you die, come back and let me know. Until then, it might actually be nice if you learned compassion, love and even maybe a little kindness.
Until you learn that...get a life.
Over The Hill
The mass population would have to disagree with you. Would you give them damnation too and at what level of hell do you think Casgil belongs in?
No offense Cagsil
No I think basically you and Casgil are good guys.
I would not wish for the worst guy to go to hell let alone 100 billion
Hell on earth for atheist, would be putting atheists in a Florida swamp and forced to watch the holy land show.
I like to turn those kinds of jokes, back on them.
I added it to my Hub called Save Satan; it’s a play on contradiction of the Bible.
All organized religions are propagating false doctrines, most of all, Christianity which has spawned the 1000s of churches that infest the earth. Babylon and its daughters are nothing but the catholic church and others that came later. They will all be destroyed at the Second Coming. which means the whole Christianity will be made extinct. Christ will be there on earth , ruling it, propagating GOD's ways and not Christianity.
True believers know Jesus is the Son of God and not God. He had on many occasions referred to His Father in heaven as a separate identity. What he enunciated is that He is the way to God; He is not God.
The only creation by God that came into existence was Jesus. All other things including humans were created by Jesus. Jesus in a way is our elder brother.
Believe in Jesus and through Him God. There is no Holy Ghost. Holy ghost refers only to the power of God. Holy Ghost as a separate identity evolved in later centuries, a clever ploy employed by the Satan to turn the faithful from the right path.

RELIGION VS THE BIBLE.This is a striking subject as it has being somehow controversal in all ages regarding it's relationship with the Bible. Anyway, I know Religion could be man made in nature as it is widely claimed to be related to God and deities. What is Religion all about and it's realities...
