I mean if he wanted to.
Scripture is clear, no need to speculate.

...He was lifted up, and a cloud took Him out of their sight. Acts 1

A flying carpet? Or, are you saying a cloud hid him?

A flying carpet...and this is why atheists think we are non-thinking, faithful dweebs.


"a cloud came and took Jesus away...to the God that kills babies against rocks..."

Why do you worry what atheists think of you (or us)? The gospel is powerful-just speak the truth of Christ and let the Spirit do the rest.

All of which was a parable. Which discredits everything you just said.

People have been doing that for years, but you haven't been listening, neither are you following the truth.

That's right. And the disciples were asked by the two angels (called men) why they were looking into the sky (Acts 1:11). Jesus ascended into heaven from the Mount of Olives and will again set foot on the Mount of Olives when he returns as per Zechariah 14:4.

Worry? I haven't worried since 2006.
I also don't speculate.

Ok.
My question was how do you all think that came about?
I guess it was magic, even tho, the whole of the Universe is based in math,
equations and physics...it is itself a mathematical structure.
Let's leave it at that.

An ans I would respect is, "I dunno, but now you've made me curious."

Thank you to those that asked me...I think it's better to come to it yourselves.
Just like if we say, "Jesus is God"...means nothing...BUT, when someone experiences that for themselves, whole diff story, then it means something!
There's no room for debate.
