If you don't......then YOU'LL FALL FOR ANYTHING !!!
What have you got to loose?
Salvation is FREE !!!
You just need to have Faith and Believe and Pray;
And ask forgiveness !!!!

Hope this helps!!!

But,you don't have to take my word!!!!

Just Believe in God's Word !!!!

I believe in the Bible because of the lessons it teaches. It's an ancient text, yet the lessons from it correlate perfectly with a lot I've been through in life. Christian or not, there's great messages in the Bible. It is encouraging. I don't live a Godly life, but I am trying.

What if all of what you see is your own creation? What if you are all there is and everything around you is something you made up to keep you from the unbearable solitude of being the only thing that exist?
What if you convinced yourself that everything around you is real and you were able to escape your solitude and give yourself and interesting "life movie" to enjoy for a while.
What if faith, religion, and god is just your creation and a "fail-safe" to give you hope and steer you away from the truth that you are as alone as you could possibly be?
What if everything you are doing, helping or hurting you are doing to yourself because you are the only thing that exist?
How could you possibly know?

Just sayin.....

I'd rather believe in God all my life and die to see that maybe He isn't than to not believe all my life and die and see He is... It's good to think outside the box, but how do you know anything? If you spend so much time just pondering, you're going to miss out on a lot.

I say question everything,..
As we get closer to xmas check this out if you dare know the truth...
Look to the east in the night sky. See that brightest star? That star in the east is called 'sirius". Watch it as we approach xmas.
To the upper right you will see the three stars that make up "orions" belt. Those stars are called what they were called in ancient times... "the three kings".
On December 24 the three kings will line up with sirius and point to the spot on the "horizon"where the sun rises.
so the three kings "follow the star in the east to where the sun (son) is born on december 25th. signaling longer days and the return of the life giving warmth to grow crops.
Interestingly enough, The word "horizion" comes from Egyptian for "horus has risen" (horus being the Egyptian sun god).

Just saying....

Dear Troubled; I read your post...I hope I helped,but.....This is not really the place to learn about "GOD",and His Word !!! Find you a good CHRISTIAN CHURCH,and talk with the preacher ONE-ON-ONE.
I am not a christian,BUT, I am going to churches,and trying,and I am learning more as I go!!!
I do know "GOD" has done MIRCALES in my life,and I am very thankful to him,And I give Him all the praise and glory!!!!
I have been in some churches....and "I" have felt his prescence !!!!AND it is one of the greatest feelings "YOU" will ever experience !!!!
It will leave "YOU" wanting more!!!
The BIBLE SAYS,{ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE}

There is a lot of non-belivers on here and the devil will work anyway he can to deceive {YOU}

{YOU} have to want it,and have faith and believe...
"IT's FREE" it will not cost you a dime !!!
Start going to different churches and listen to the preachers surmons and listen to the words in the songs the singers sing !!!
Soon "YOU" find a church you like and "YOU" will experience one of the "GREATEST FEELINGS" of. your life. I will ask prayer for "YOU",and that "YOU"will be touched by his "HOLY SPIRIT"

No One is perfect,not even the preachers or the members in the church. But we must try our best to do "GOD'S WILL" "May GOD Bless "YOU"

I say do what ever gives you peace. If it helps and eases the pain use it.

I have gotten trapped in that circular argument many times. I just have to let it be. "seekers only find what they are ready to find".

The true Gnostics have been murdered throughout history for passing the truth on to the unknowing.
The "church" has used fear and guilt to control and manipulate the masses from it conception. Why else would they not inform their parishioners of the existence of the nag hammadi?(I would imagine that a lot of people have no idea of what I just spoke.)

Ask and I will teach.

I challenge any of you to research the nag hammadi

The Nag Hammadi Library, a collection of thirteen ancient codices containing over fifty texts, was discovered in upper Egypt in 1945. This immensely important discovery includes a large number of primary "Gnostic Gospels" -- texts once thought to have been entirely destroyed during the early Christian struggle to define "orthodoxy" -- scriptures such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Philip, and the Gospel of Truth.

Who is evil and keeping the truth from anyone? Huh?

Why would the new world order, homeland security and that gaggle of cronies have an official tittle for the religious brainwash crews they are training for their own personal objectives?

Look into or google "clergy responce teams".... yea... they really exist.
so is is free? does it really not cost anything?

Look into the "3 city states" who work for the 13 original blood lines who rule the world. the 3 city states are washington dc which controls world military, london which controls world money, and the vatican which controls world religion.

Just read, question and learn... do it soon. There is an internet kill coming that will destroy free flow of information on its way.

I imagine the jews in nazi germany laughed and scoffed at the news that they were going to be exterminated up until they got put on the trains.

There even exist a red and blue list under martial law that depending on what list you are on determines if you live or die here in the US after fima takeover.

I am happy to see people talking about these things on here lately. It means there is hope for you here if you listen.

You know. I could tell you this or that. Tell you how the word of God has changed this one time atheists life, tell you how I have seen the power of God move in a way that defies belief...well, I will tell you that one.

Last CHRISTMAS,While driving for FedX delivering packages for the CHRISTMAS rush. It started snowing and here in Coeburn,some of the places I had to del to were really back off in the woods and in a two wheel drive van,this was not something I was looking forward to. So with around 20 stops left to go,the snow started covering the road and I was beginning to have trouble getting around. So as the van started to slide once more,I said these words. God,In the name of Jesus. I ask that this snow would stop until I am close to home and finished with my stops,Amen. No sooner then I had finished,the snow stopped and the blue skys started to peak out from behind the clouds and do you know that is did not start snowing again until I was less than half a mile from my house. Now. It matters little that you dont beleive this,I have no reason to lie and this story is true.

Now,with that said. Another reason I can tell you with out a doubt that the Bible is real is because of just one simple thing that you or anyone else should be able to easily see. Open your mind,find a Bible and read Mathew 24,verses 4 to 27 and Luke 21, verses 8 to 32. Then,look around at the world you live in and tell me that all that is spoken of in the there is not coming to pass. Some will tell you that..yeah right,we have been hearing the same stuff for hundreds of years and that is true. But the thing you have to understand is that events have happened within these past few years that were unheard in human history. One example is the earth quake in Japan a few years ago that was so powerful that it shifted the earths axis by 6.5 inches and the cost of Japan by 13 feet! Look it up for yourself.

Earthquakes in diverse places,Volcanic eruptions,record breaking weather events,social unrest around the world,economic disasters,wars and rumors of wars,Israel being "Surrounded on all sides" and the state of organized religion and the false doctrines taught in churches today..it just goes on and on. These are warning signs people and time is short! Only Faith and trust in Christ can save you from whats to come. This world is but a stopping point,a wayside on the road to eternity. Were that road ends is up to you!
