How is this truth? They are merely taking the discoveries of other scientist and using it as if "God" commanded it this way with scriptures. If this is what you call truth, then Nostradamus must be the most powerful scientific God of analogies ever to exist.
Whatever you WANT to believe...
God is Real!

According to scriptures Jesus spoke to the corrupt pharisees in parables seeing that pharisees taught the pagan babylonia belief that God burns humans souls in hell-fire forever that have not repented.
Question: do you believe that teaching of hell-fire in the N.T. is literal?
Question: if you have the holy ghost can you cast out demons,speak in tonques or heal the sick?
In the Book of Joel, God said "I will pour out my Spirit on ALL Flesh!"
It's what YOU do with it that matters...
I've cast out demons In Jesus Name! It works, It's REAL!
God is Real...
Tune into that!

Go figure!
Which translates as: anyone who disagrees with your world view and personal interpretation of salvation is a "tard".
At some point,*you* decided to redefine what the word means, and what condition it describes.
You blithely use the term freely and often to demean others, and while doing so you insult and abuse those who have clinical mental disabilities.
A story I learned in Bible school -
During battle, a boy soldier in Alexander's army turned and ran in terror. He was caught and brought before Alexander himself.
The general looked at the boy and asked,"what is your name?"
"Alexander." The boy stuttered.
The great leader paused for a moment, then said,
"Change your name or change your ways."

That is satans job to mess things up, and anyone to take his name is a TARD!
You do not HAVE to be a TARD!
Repent of being a TARD, ask Christ to forgive you!
You WILL be Glad You Did!
Amen!

<quoted text> My Life, just as yours has value because Christ suffered, and died in OUR place!
No, my life and yours has no "meaning" at all.
It means only what it means to us to be here and to those whose lives we affect in some way.
No more than that.

Hypothetically speaking.... your wife saw that you were about to be hit by a truck, pushed you out of the way, and was herself killed instead of you, does that make your life more valuable than it was before she did that?
No, it only makes you WANT for it to be more valuable since she gave up something for you.
It makes you feel GUILTY. It's called "survivor's guilt."

That is what Christianity does.
It relentlessly cries, "but Jesus died for YOU. He died so that YOU could live."
And the hidden message is, "and you damn well better feel guilty and, at the same time, grateful."
Guilty/grateful for something that had nothing to do with YOU.

We live our brief span and we die.
You can't/won't accept that.
You would rather believe that invisible superbeings are fighting over your love and loyalty and that you will get to live forever by choosing the right side.

<quoted text> God is not imaginary... He is real!
He saved me, and many, many, many others!
I hope you will be one too!
But it is Your choice!
There is a choice but it's between fantasy and reality.
Fantasy is a fun place to visit but an emotionally well-adjusted person doesn't want to live there.

Yaa states that:

"I am a Friend of God Himself!"

When your "friend" tells you to "come home" and "bring your loved ones," I worry for your family.
You are losing your mind, Yaa.

I copied this from another forum thought it was great analogy of the God is Real......
“A fire-breathing dragon lives in my garage.”
Suppose I seriously make such an assertion to you. Surely you’d want to check it out, see for yourself. There have been innumerable stories of dragons over the centuries, but no real evidence. What an opportunity!
“Show me,” you say. I lead you to my garage. You look inside and see a ladder, empty paint cans, an old tricycle—but no dragon.
“Where’s the dragon?” you ask.
“Oh, she’s right here,” I reply, waving vaguely.“I neglected to mention that she’s an invisible dragon.”
You propose spreading flour on the floor of the garage to capture the dragon’s footprints.
“Good idea,” I say,“but this dragon floats in the air.”
Then you’ll use an infrared sensor to detect the invisible fire.
“Good idea, but the invisible fire is also heatless.”
You’ll spray-paint the dragon and make her visible.
“Good idea, except she’s an incorporeal dragon and the paint won’t stick.”
And so on. I counter every physical test you propose with a special explanation of why it won’t work.
Now, what’s the difference between an invisible, incorporeal, floating dragon who spits heatless fire and no dragon at all?

Q,1:1 is "I Never Believe, I Know, I Think I Know or I Do Not Know. To Believe is to form a Religion"
