Jesus also said something about the moon appearing red before He returns.
The letters "INRI" appear above the head of the crucified Jesus.

They stand for "I'm Not Returning Immediately"

To find out, you need to trace back your ancestry to many, many generations.

If you ask help from the Holy Spirit it will probably take a second.

If you use the Hindu logic, it will probably take some time.

If you want to search for your ancestry by yourself, you might need to search for trillions of generations of your ancestry. And this will probably take your whole life time, or may be more, because you are searching for the Creator of the Universe and Man is only a tiny little part of it.

I actually heard Christianity is not only declining in China, theyre being killed off. Serves them right. I am a Native American female and I believe its their own damn karma for trying to police the world via Jesus. Jesus freaks make me sick and I dont give a flying rats @$$ what you think, because most Christians are self serving douchebags.

You need help, maybe from a psychiatrist.

I find it amusing and ironic how Christians ignore the other god worshippers.....Zeus? oh no hes a false god. Baal? he doesnt deserve credit, hes another false god, yet they whine when someone else says their Jesus isnt real. Grow up, now I hope you understand why Atheism will be the future and God worshippers will one day be considered primitive and useless.

So it was at the exact moment of Jesus' death that god stopped using hebrew and instead reverted to modern English?

With regard to the use of the word, it is to be observed that the plural of the Chaldee form is uniformly plural in sense. The English version of &#1489;&#1512;&#14 70;&#1488;&#1500;& #1492;&#1497;&#1503; bar-'ela&#770;h&#305; &#770;yn, "the Son of God" Daniel 3:25 is the only exception to this. But since it is the phrase of a pagan, the real meaning may be, "a son of the gods." On the contrary, the plural of the Hebrew form is generally employed to denote the one God. The singular form, when applied to the true God, is naturally suggested by the prominent thought of his being the only one. The plural, when so applied, is generally accompanied with singular conjuncts, and conveys the predominant conception of a plurality in the one God - a plurality which must be perfectly consistent with his being the only possible one of his kind. The explanations of this use of the plural - namely, that it is a relic of polytheism, that it indicates the association of the angels with the one God in a common or collective appellation, and that it expresses the multiplicity of attributes subsisting in him - are not satisfactory. All we can say is, that it indicates such a plurality in the only one God as makes his nature complete and creation possible. Such a plurality in unity must have dawned upon the mind of Adam. It is afterward, we conceive, definitely revealed in the doctrine of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Change your name. It's misleading. It would be one thing if you could stick to one boring "Paragraph" but on and on it goes.

there is a conspiracy theory that i have read that says Jesus was a story invented by the elite romans called the flavians as a political tool, offering a peaceful messiah for revolutionaries against rome thousands of years ago.
was the story about Jesus invented by the romans ?
or do those people who claim that Jesus was invented by the romans want people to ignore the teachings from Jesus ?
who is telling the truth ?
and by the way, i favor peace.
some people say that the story of Jesus was partly invented and partly a retelling of real historical holy people.

and that the romans called the flaviums used real stories of real historical holy people to form the story of Jesus for political reasons to offer a peaceful messiah for revolutionaries against rome thousands of years ago.
