That answer could apply to any god or deity REAL or imagined.<quoted text>I would think this answer could apply to any god or deity ever invented. This is why jews, hindu's and Muslims do not look for a Christ.
This is why it makes no sense to me that your Christ demands to be believed in. Thus I conclude your Christ is more likely a myth.
I cannot accept a Christ is that unreasonable.
I trust logic.
Question is,what criteria does one use in order to determine whether that entity is real .
God provides us all with the instructions as to how we may find him.they are found in the bible.
He also teaches us about bringing our problems to him and what it takes to get a response as to how that problem can be resolved.
I tested them and found they worked...BUT THAT IS NOT ALL
Let me give you an example;
I had read the following quite a few times and had no idea what they meant;
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. LET NOT YOUR HEARTS BE TROUBLED AND BE YOU NOT AFRAID
“I tell you the solemn truth, unless a person is born of water and spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not be amazed that I said to you,‘You must be born from above.’ 8 The wind blows wherever it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
After I am gone,I will send the holy spirit and it will guide you to all truth
Moreover, I could not understand,why,Jesus,after being flogged,spit on and forced to carry his cross,on the way to being crucified,could only say about those responsible"Forgive them father,for they do not know what they do
Then one day in 1981,I was praying and suddenly I had this awesome feeling of an inner peace,joy and serenity that was overwhelming. A feeling I could have never imagine existed and which I had no idea how or why I felt as I did
As I am trying to understand what is happening,Iam made aware of the answer to those 4 things over which I was confused.
The peace of Christ,which surpasses human understanding and reassures us not to be troubled or afraid.
I could now understand why Jesus,on his way to be crucified,could say,forgive them Father,for they do not know what they do.
and I could understand what he said about the holy spirit
The wind blows wherever it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Now,I know some will analyze this and attribute it to snake oil,magic,mental disorders,my mind deceiving me and so on....
But I,who experienced it,am the only one qualified to express an opinion based on the facts.
God and Christ have proven themselves,kept their promises,performed as they claimed they would and by doing so have strengthened my faith in .
When something is working perfectly,no need to look or change
