Nowhere in the Bible that I use (KJV) does it say Jesus was born in December. Christmas is a pagan holiday, created to draw in the heathens to church. According to the account of Jesus' birth in the Bible its much more likely He was born in the spring or fall rather than winter. It is my opinion that *everyday* should be a celebration of Jesus' life (and more importantly, his death) rather than confining it to a single day of the year.
Thanks for your reply, many christians would be offended by me asking that question. I have read your comments a few times before and felt comfortable asking you. You are more of the interesting christians that have commented on this forum.

According to the mythical tales in the kjv, jesus and god are one in the same, which indicates god is not only indecisive but highly irrational and inclined to sudden violence.

Word it any way you like, earth is still here and gods law holds sway.
If you are inclined to believe such non-sense.
Everything in that statement is true, but I would have you read carefully the last four words in the first quote:
"... until everything is accomplished."

You're welcome and thank you. I would like to think I'm not a raving lunatic or a moron. As I said before, I respect your opinion and your choices. I don't agree with it, but I don't have to. The discussion could remain mature, without the name calling, but I'm afraid that it won't.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Mark 16:17-18 English Standard Version (ESV)
17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.
I would like to suggest Ani-Freeze & Cobras..... Then you can heal one another with your magic hands.
Jesus is talking about his Apostles here. Anyone that tells you God talks to him or that he hears God's voice is outright lying to you. The Apostles were endowed with these powers to prove to the people they came into contact with that what they were teaching was true. God doesn't act through people anymore, once the last Apostle died (John, if I recall correctly) that power passed from the Earth.

The "healers" you see on t.v.(Benny Hinn, for example) are full of garbage.

But everything will not be accomplished until the new Kingdom is here after all the things in the book of Revelations.
Have you considered that the "savior" the jews wanted was not a god but a warrior to lead them in battle against the Roman rulers?

In biblical language, how would Jesus describe those that claim to have these powers from him? To decieve many by suggesting that they have this power through faith to make people believe that God is with them, then would this be considered a heresy by the bible to do so?

Can you quote the scriptures that support your undestanding?

I think (<) that's why the Jews killed Him. They were expecting someone to take revenge for them against the people who treated them badly. They were expecting someone to kick someone's ass. Instead they got a Savior that said: "love thine enemy". My opinion only, of course.

Jesus' accomplishments on Earth have finished, thus the old law was done away with.

You must remember the Apostles didn't have faith. They didn't need it. They walked, talked, touched and ate with Jesus. The people the Apostles came into contact with though or read their writings (the Bible) would have to have faith to believe what they were saying was true.

It was considered heresy, that's why most of the Apostles met cruel and very violent deaths, the same as Jesus.

I'm running short on time this morning, I'll expand on my thoughts later this afternoon.

I have to admit, I am impressed. I knew there were Christians who "get it". However, they seemed to be quite few and far in between. In respecting another's opinion and choices, you have displayed a tolerance for which I give you much respect.

Many religions..One God..Ephesians Chapter 4. Religion is to practice something over and over. Christianity is not merely a religion. It is a oneness with Christ. I in Him and He in I. Only one living God. None other besides Him. No where in the Bible does it say we are to respect other faiths or other gods or to tell our brothers and sisters that any religion you want to practice is ok. That would be considered whoring. God says to have no other gods before Him. He says He is a jealous God. If and I do say if you are a Christian you will tell people the truth. Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life. By no other name gived can man be saved. The Bible says "The prophets were until John". As for healing it plainly tells If there is any sick among you to call for the elders of the Church to come" ETC.(Just trying to hit on a little I have read here.) Of course God still works through His people. What other vessel would He use to carry out His work on Earth? The "gifts of the Spirit" have ceased, but Jesus said to ask anything in His name FAITH BELIEVING and it shall be given us. "Let God be True and every man a liar". If I call myself a Christian and cannot stand for God's truth I will throw down the sword and go to the house. It is a fight till death.
