Some of us don't believe in your god either.
It's not going to do you any good to quote something we don't believe in to prove your point.
I think you need to present your point a bit better.

Keep in mind I'm not trying to convince you to believe in my God, I'm trying to convince you to make a fresh search for God. You have lost nothing if he does not exist and everything to gain if he does.

No one can convince another person if God exists, I'm only trying to convince you to make a personal search for yourself. If you do what I ask then that search may be a short one.

I'm also convinced Jesus saves people even though they never believed in him while alive on earth. Jesus knows who has been hurt by preachers or false Christians or unusal circumstances, the real Jesus is merciful and full of compassion and knows your story including why you believe or don't believe. The real Jesus is just and full of forgiveness even if you never believed in him while on earth, that is why he is the judge. If most Christians would just do what Jesus said about not judging then most who have rejected Jesus would not have.

God does understand every skeptic and non-believer and I'm not worried about whether a person believes or doesn't believe because Jesus can work all that out without any help from anyone. I am only trying to present you another perspective so that you might start a fresh inquiry on the things of God. Seek and you will find. I realize you might consider that a silly saying but it is true nevertheless, seek and you will find.

If you don't seek him then the real Jesus has a back up plan, he seeks you and when Jesus finds you supernaturally you will be glad.

Until then believe what is your free right to believe even if it is nothing.

Amazing? Awesome? Where?

Nope it's not clever enough to be a mathematical trick.

Nope-it has nothing to do with numerology. It's just a very simple letter replacement code assigning numeric values to letters in increments of 6.

I don't have a Pastor or Prophecy teacher, but if I did, I'm sure they would be misinforming me-that's their job.

One set (the same set) of numeric alphabet is used for every word, compound word shown below. Here is that alphabet values below.

A=06 B=12 C=18 D=24 E=30 F=36 G=42 H=48 I=54 J=60 K=66 L=72 M=78 N=84 O=90 P=96 Q=102 R=108 S=114 T=120 U=126 V=132 W=138 X=144 Y=150 Z=156
There is nothing "deeper" to look at. The example words/phrases were not chosen randomly, they were chosen to fit the simple code. Some phrases have been made awkward just to make them fit. There is no pattern of "good" or "evil".

As I already posted, some very basic important Christians words/phrases do NOT fit this "code":

Born Again=486
Crucifix=558
God is Love =648
Jesus is love=936
Son of God=570
Resurrection=990
Salvation=678
Rapture =594

How do you expect any person with even half a brain to think this is anything more than a silly waste of time?

That is such an asinine comment it's not even worth an answer. If you don't know why, please go back and repeat high school.

Man has developed equations that prove the atom exists even to the point developing nuclear weapons, yet science to this day cannot see an atom even with an electron mircroscope. Yet the math done by science when it is done correctly proves that atom exists, though never seen.

If you went to any country in the 1700's with a cell phone a blackberry and a BMW ,they would worship you as a God, or kill you as a devil.

To them the cell phone would not be technology it would be magic.

Think about it.
I'm not the one who needs to do more thinking. I do plenty of it all the time, which is why I don't believe crap like numerology.

So it is easy to conclude if God exists then he has a comunication system as well, in fact it is the ultimate comunication network. At birth you had it, as an adult all you have to do is upload your request, prayer or chit chat and God will turn on your transponder. Ping God, talking to the air is like talking in God's ear and I mean like right in his ear.
Easy to conclude if you don't think for yourself or really consider just what it is you believe. Plus, you're anthropomorphizing god -- and whenever an atheist compares god to man, all you believers rush in and say "well you can't DO that because he's god..." And yet, when it's convenient for you to do so, you do and don't think twice. So which is it, is god like man or not?

Quote:
God in Jesus Christ never misses a call, so call God with your built in telephone in Jesus' name. If man's technology can process trillions of calls a day missing very few then surely God won't miss your call. So phone home.
Bull. Prayer is useless, even if a deity existed. Think about it.

Gravity can be measured related to its mass mathematically. Newton and others confimed this natural law. However they still have no way to see it. There is no sensor out of all that we have built for space that can see gravity. Yet gravity exists and though it can be proven mathematically no one can see it, or has ever seen it. It is a powerful unseen force that still baffles scientists not because it exists, but that they cannot develope anyway to see it not even in wave form. That is the point I was trying to make, you believe it yet you cannot see it.

As far as numerology is concerned you might want to read this

Isopsephy (IPA: [ˈaɪsəsɛfi], iso meaning "equal" and psephos meaning "pebble") is the Greek word for the practice of adding up the number values of the letters in a word to form a single number. The early Greeks used pebbles arranged in patterns to learn arithmetic and geometry. A Latin word for "pebbles" is "calculi", the origin of the word "calculate." Isopsephy is related to Gematria, the same practice using the Hebrew alphabet, and the ancient number systems of many other peoples (for the Arabic alphabet version, see Abjad numerals).

Gematria (Rabbinic Hebrew גימטריה gēmaṭriyā), is a system of assigning numerical value to an alphabet. The word Gematria is believed to have been formed from a metathesis of the Greek word grammateia ("play upon letters"), from gramma (letter) and literally means 'that which is written'

Prayer is not useless but that's your opinion and I'm sure you will try to stick with it

Oh sorry, did you say something? I was interrupted by the boogie man knocking on my door. He wanted to sell me a bridge. But I managed to get rid of him by falling to my knees and praying until the Tooth Fairy showed up and took him away to the north pole, where Santa Claus will force him to make toys for all the good girls and boys.

Huh? Is this still the public domain? Speaking English, strictly?

And we wonder why the atheists think we're nuts.

You don't need this stuff. Just read the Bible.
