It's too bad you can't get anywhere based on your feelings eh? Just take God's Word for what it is. One way to heaven: the blood of Jesus CHrist. You either accept this glorious gift through FAITH or you don't.
where in the Bible do you find that promise made? You should never form opinions based on what anyone says, including a religious institution. Form your own beliefs BASED on the Bible. Your argument is void if it is not based on a reliable source.
Say it again!
amen. Tired of walking ito church seeing pew warmers injeans
on both hands, a child dies.
That is why the theory of evolution is so widely accepted. It takes away the sacredness of human life and equates us with animals allowing us to excuse the disgusting behaviors like abortion of today.
Disgusting statement. Encouraging murder to the smallest,weakest members of society proves how broken we really are.
I don't think you understand. The Bible is not about moral rules and regulations, its all about Jesus Christ. From Genesis to Revelation. Muslims do not belief in the deity of Christ so... yes, there is a difference. The quran and the Bible are incomparable in fact. Christianity and Islam have two different purposes entirely. Muslims use their works such as prayer etc. to appease Allah. Whereas Christians are saved only through grace, good works do nothing to please God. We live morally and follow the Bible because we are Christians, we aren't Christians because we live morally and follow the Bible.
I'm sorry, as I was reading your previous conversation I mistook you for someone who was genuinely wanting to know the truths in God's Word. 1) You clearly don't know who God is. God IS love, yes but He is also just. A loving parent punishes their child for the things that they do. They don't reward them because the child will never learn. Love is not simply happy decisions it is also hard, but necessary decisions. 2) If you do not accept God's gift to mankind (salvation through His son) it is ultimately your loss. He has given you the freewill to choose what you want because that's what love is, but even though God knew there would be many who would not take the gift, but He sent His Son anyways. 3) God didn't kill His Son, we did. And Jesus chose to stay on the cross, He didn't have to if He didn't want to, God asked Him and He said yes because of His love for us. No offense, but I'm pretty sure your God hasn't done anything that I have just listed for you.
Yes, Abraham's God, but more importantly, MY God. He sent his Son to suffer and die for YOU. He sent his Son to pay the sin debt that you or I could not pay because He loves us so much. You don't have to accept the mercy He has shown to you, He still loves you, but you will have to pay for your sin just like a child is punished when they disobey. But why pay for your sins when they have been payed for already?
No breaking news to me. Nothing I haven't heard before. But the thing is, the Bible wasn't pulled out of the brains of men. It was inspired of God. Sure, the books were written by men, tell the stories of men, and was meant to be read by men, but every word in the Bible is ordained of God. Mulitple people mentioned in the Bible wrote books, but their words are not in the Bible because they were not inspired by God. True, many parallels can be seen with other Holy books, but the MAIN reason for the Bible is unparallel with other books. The Bible was written so that man can know that God sent Jesus Christ to redeem us seeing as we cannot redeem ourselves. All the other messages in God's Word like love, justice, relationships etc. are present in other Holy Books but those books were not inspired by God, the creator and Lord of this universe. And, the reason why a certain moral compass is present in these other books and in the minds of men is because God has made us in His image and so natural laws like committing murder and loving one another are, well, natural for us; but as time progresses and sin becomes more prevalent in society even certain natural laws are lost by some
