There are things in the bible that are revealed by God to his children. But anyone can read the bible, but if he does not have the Holy Spirit then it want make much since. There are also things in the bible that are hidden from the enemy, not that God is keeping a big secret, its just that they can't comprehend scripture.
Sounds like a perfect description of the mental abilities of a resident of a psych ward

Buddist--feeds the hungry
Christian-feeds the hungry

Buddist-nurses the sick
Christian-nurses the sick

Buddist-lives a moral life
Christian-lives a moral life

Buddist-is honest in all he does
Christian-is honest in all he does

Buddist-DOOMED TO BURN FOR ETERNITY
Christian-Goes to Heaven. Never again to suffer.

Does this make any sense whatsover? Not to me.

As for what we're doing here, it's a Christianity message board. If we offend you so much by telling what we believe, you don't have to read it.
Actually it is not the Christianity message board.........

Excuse me, I've looked everywhere and can't find where it says THIS IS A CHRISTIANITY MESSAGE BOARD. Would mind posting where it says that? Thanks, because if we, as human beings aren't welcome here because we don't think the same as you do, well then, I guess I'll leave. But until then, I'll continue to post what I feel like posting.

Name one.
Here ya go.

John 5:31 "If I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is not trustworthy.

John 8:14 "Jesus answered them, "Even though I am testifying about myself, my testimony is valid because I know where I have come from and where I am going. But you do not know where I come from or where I am going."

I think mzjamiedawn just took a little too much for granted.

Like yourself, I'm a human being. And as it happens, I'm not Christian. And what's more, nobody can convince me that I'm consigned to hell (assuming there is such a place) because of it.

some they believe that Jesus is god

some they believe that Jesus is son of god

some they believe that Jesus is all

and that all is based from the bible

i think that this is one of the proofs that the bible has additions and subtraction by man witch caused this multi understanding about the most important one in Christianity and that is Jesus peace be upon him

You both are right, I thought I was under the Christianity part. Ok, so we're on the religion and philosophy boards, sorry about that!

Stormy night, you need to chill out. Have a little too much coffee this morning? You also need to stop twisting everyone's words. I bet you wouldn't want anyone to do that to you.
