Perhaps, it's because you're going to the wrong church. However, there is no perfect church and there will always be gossipers, etc.. One has to go to church to worship God and ignore the rest. Not easy.....I've been there! Just remember, there are many people attending churches that are not Christians.

If I were to become convinced that the reward is "eternal life," I will unequivocally state that I can "dunk" a person on the deathbed into the water.
Soooooo! You could take a seriously ill person that was hooked up to all kinds of things in a hospital and take them somewhere and get them baptized, huh? You are crazier than a goon! They would probably die before you got them there anyway. What if they weighed 500 lbs.? You gonna call a wrecker? What if there was no water available.......like in the middle of the desert? What if they were on life support? You gonna take all the equipment and dunk it with them? What if a person had severe burns and could not have any water on their body? Quit acting so dumb!

Sorry, "Norton"! I am not going to let you off the hook that easily. Your obfuscation will not work this time.

You said, "I can't think of anything more free than salvation because Jesus paid the price."

I said, "The air you breathe." To receive salvation, you must accept it. To breathe air, you do not have to "accept" it.(Now wallow around with that a while! Of course, we KNOW you WILL! You have been trained to "Sit up and bark!) ROFL!_8-)

My head is fine, although yours seems to be buried in the sand. Perhaps you might want to look up the historical facts before you start questioning where someone else's brain is.

Just because you believe or disbelieve something does not change the facts or reality. It is obvious that you know nothing about the beginnings of your own religion. So keep listening to the preacher and keep your level of conciousness below ground level.

The fact that we are Created in the Image of God means that we are CoCreaters with God because we also have the power to create through proactive or negative speech. You are what comes out of your mouth.

Have you not read any of the Holy Scriptures (not NT)? God said, "I Am the Lord Your God. Besides Me There is No Other."

That knocks your Jesus out of the big picture. When you worship anything or anyone other than "Big Daddy God", The Supreme Creator of the Universe, you are practicing idolatry. Go read and learn. God gave you a brain. Now use it. When you remove the bliners from you eyes, perhaps you will be able to start seeing God's True reality.

If you would research this for yourself, you might learn something. But as most christians, you have been so indoctrinated with falsehood that you dare not think for yourself.

1. I do not have to "take" them anyplace. The water can be brought to their hospital bed.

2. Your imaginary "patient" is already in a hospital. Why should they die?

3. Huh? What if they weighed 500 pounds? Ever hear of a hoist? They use them in hospitals all the time!

4. You cannot bring a wrecker into a hospital room. Nor do you have to! It was not necessary to bring a wrecker into their hospital room to get them there in the first place! Really, "Norton," you are off on a flight of fancy.

5. Why NOT "dunk" all the equipment? Keywords: water-proof wrappings.(Don't forget "towels" to dry the patient and equipment off, afterwards.

6. If the patient has severe burns and could not have any water on his body, WHO CARES? Is not the reward of eternal life worth more than a little discomfort? You really do not have your priorities straight, "Norton"!

The christians stole the Gehinah concept from Catholicism. Again, Christianity has twisted the real meaning. Christianity is a religion of hate and fear. You hate people who disagree with your dogma and you live in fear of "going to hell." And if the rest of us don't believe like you do, you tell us we are going to go to hell and suffer eternal damnation. What a bunch of mumbo jumbo. The concept of a christian hell does not exist. All that is in your NT. I do not accept your NT because it cannot be verified.

Gehennah is a place where souls go for refinement before they can enter heaven (the world to come). The Catholics stole this concept from Judaism. They call it pergatory. Only nobody can be prayed out of Gehinah.

There is an angel of God called the Saton. Again Christians turned him into the boogy man and call him satan. No such thing. The Saton is like the prosecuting attorney who reports to God when we do wrong. A record is kept if you continue your sin and do not repent. He is doing exactly what God created him to do, as do all angels. You see, angels have no free will. They are all messengers of God who do God's bidding.

Evil does exist because God created it for HIS purpose. And God said, "It is Good." Without evil, we would be like the angels without free will or choice.

But christianity cannot control the masses with the truth. Christianity uses the fear factor to keep its flocks cowaring and afraid to enjoy life, as God intended us to do. You do not have to sin to enjoy God's world of nature and all its beauty. God hides HIS face from us behind the veil of nature. You have eyes, but you cannot see.

It appears to me that you are not sure of what you believe, because just like many other christians, when somebody says something that threatens your belief system, you attack and start calling names. If that is your representation of God, no thanks! I will continue on the spiritual path God has shown me.

I wonder what God will say to christians when God accuses them of leading people astray to serve a false god. I was raised christian and all I ever saw were christians flipping backwards trying to convert people, just like the muslims do. Actually, muslims are closer to God than christians because muslims believe in One God (they call HIM Allah), not a pantheon of gods (trinity).

Yellow Dog, the christians stole the fact that Jews go to a Mikvah to clease themselves from negative energy. The christians turned it into baptism, which gentiles were never Commanded by God to do. Matter of fact, it is forbidden for gentiles to perform Jewish mitzvoh (Commandments). And I guess Norton does not know that Judaism is the only religion that does not seek to convert gentiles. This is because keeping 613 Commandments would be most difficult for gentiles to do the rest of their lives.

Gentiles can get the same results of cleansing from negative entities by washing their hands under cold water every morning. Oh, and preachers keep the flock in fear so the "tithes" will keep on coming in. God never Commanded the gentiles to Tithe. However, we are supposed to give charity and do good works, whether it be with money, deeds, or even our time.

Norton, 3 million Hebrews witnessed the giving of HaTorah on Mount Siani. How many witnesses did Paul have on the road to Damascus when he supposedly had a vision? 0

Now my common sense tells me to go with the event that was witnessed by millions, rather than a Greek (Paul) who had nobody as a witness to his claim. You do know that Paul pushed Jesus' brother, James, down the Temple steps and ordered him stoned to death by the mob standing at the bottom of the steps. And this man wrote the bulk of your NT. Paul does not appear to be very "Christlike" does he? Why did Paul have to be lowered down a wall in a basket to escape Jerusalem with his life? Because Paul taught the jewsish christian converts at Antioch that temple sacrifices were no longer necessary. When they went to Jerusalem for the passover feast, Paul was caught in the temple sacrificing. They intended to kill him, so he ran like the coward he was.

You see, Paul converted to Judaism because he wanted to marry the daughter of the high priest. When the high priest refused to allow the marriage, Paul became the enemy of Judaism.

GREAT comments! 1. I have noticed that there is a tendency for people to continually increase the number of gods that they worship. I feel it is sort of like a baseball pitcher who starts wearing the same cap he wore when he pitched a no-hitter! And then, he begins wearing the same socks! And shirts and pants and underclothes, and begins to pay attention to how he approaches the pitcher's mound! In this fearsome world, one cannot have too many "lucky charms," or worship too many "gods." Once upon a time, as you point out, pre-"Christians" worshiped one "God." Then "God" became "God and Jesus" -- and then "God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit." But, in order to observe only ONE "god," they wrapped the three entities up into the "Trinity." Quite a trick!(Of course, since the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, and Jesus is the Holy Spirit, thus Jesus is his own father -- and so on and so on.)

2. I was never too good at observing TEN commandments, much less 613 of them!

3. I do "believe in" doing good things for others, whether it be with money, deeds, or time.

Archeology in the Holy Land, does not support the Exodus as an actual event. The cities Joshua is said to have destroyed in judges...were already empty and gone at that date.

There is no place in the Bible that says baptism will save you!!!!!!!!!!
Of course, most Christians are baptized and I think they should be. You think they have to be dunked under water. Have you ever thought about people that can never be dunked under water?
What do you think happens to them? You think they go to Hell because they were not dunked under water? Hogwash!
What really gets me are the churches that insist you be baptized in their church (building) in order to be a member of their church. To me, that is legalism! I think once a person is baptized no matter which way they do it is ok. It is a symbolic thing. As long as we believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for our sins and rose again and that he is coming back again..........is all he asks!
A person on their deathded certainly cannot be dunked in the water. It's called common sense! People tend to too legalistic with manmade ideas.
CHEERS!
Norton,
Here is a scripture where Jesus Christ himself is COMMANDING us to be BAPTIZED in order to be saved:

(Mark 16:16) "He that believeth & is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned".

There are also several other scriptures in the bible that also commands us to be BAPTIZED for the REMISSION OF SINS in order TO BE SAVED...

Surely you're not going to contridict the words that are coming from the mouth of Jesus Christ himself!!!

In regard to baptism, your remarks on the subject remind me of the serpant in the Garden of Eden.

God told Adam & Eve "DO NOT EAT the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good & evil or YOU WILL SURELY DIE".

But, then the serpant comes along & tells the woman "YOU WILL NOT SURELY DIE if you eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good & evil.

Likewise, the bible tells us that "BAPTISM DOES NOW ALSO SAVE US".

But, man comes along & tells us that "BAPTISM DOES NOT SAVE US".

Which one should we believe GOD or MAN???

Which should we believe, what the BIBLE/JESUS is saying or what YOU/NORTON are saying...?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
