I think a good sign that you have entered the kingdom is you begin to see the world and every situation in it how Christ did.

Do you not say, 'After four months the harvest comes?' Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and behold the fields that are white and are ready to harvest even now.

He saw it here present rather than coming. He saw the blind seeing, he saw the deaf hearing, he saw the unlovely loved, the broken hearted healed and so it was.

How can you say you love Jesus but hate His words recorded in Scripture? I think most honest-hearted people would dismiss your claim.

Hate the scriptures? On yer bike you bible worshipper. Nothing wrong with the scriptures, never said there is and never will say there is, what's wrong is the interpretation of them by the bible worshipper.

Ah, now THAT is a perspective not commonly presented!

He saw it as in the present..."and so it was".

Many equate faith and belief. They are not the same. Faith requires knowledge of who Jesus is (God) and what He has done (sacrifice). We also need to trust in Jesus and that His will be done. Thirdly, we must agree with the knowledge that we have about Jesus (Scripture).

The three elements of faith, knowledge, trust, and agreement, are the keys to salvation. All work in unison in order for you to accept and be granted the most important gift of all, eternal life. It is the most important decision in your life.


I am one who believes that Jesus did not sacrifice, instead,he demonstrated his teachings of forgiveness and love. "You shall forgive seventy times seven'" (Limitless) by forgiving those who tortured and killed him.


"Greater love has no man, than to give his life for his friends." He demonstrated here that there is no sacrifice in giving your life in love, but what is gained is far greater than the existence in the world of impermanence and suffering.

Seeing things as they truly are, not as we have been conditioned to see.

The reason many do is because Jesus equates them as the same:
Mark 16:16
Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.

Luke 7:50
Jesus said to the woman, ďYour faith has saved you; go in peace.Ē
