Somewhere in the bible I believe your God says that the only way to get to heaven in thru his son Jesus Christ.
If good people that do not know God are assured a place in heaven would it not be best for Christians not to spread the word of God? That would result in more people getting to Heaven.
Because Jesus told Christians to do so in Mark 16:15. "Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone, everywhere." The good news was that through Jesus we can have eternal life. My assumption as to why, which I suppose will be your next question, is that God wants ALL of his creation to know that He exists and that He created them. If you actually take the time to read the Bible you will see that God feels just as we do (anger, jealously, pleased etc...)If you had created something you would want acknowledgement for it, wouldn't you? It pleases God when we worship him. And yes, He is conceated and has every right to be, He is all powerful and creator of all things.

Regarding Mark's 'thru Jesus we can have eternal life'. It appears that we will have eternal life without Jesus,albeit in hell. Regardless,maybe Mark should have qualified the eternal life somewhat.

Romans 2:14-16 It says that for a person outside of God who doesn't have his law but who naturally act in a way follwing the law because their conscience tells them to, will be judged according to the secrets of their heart.

I noticed alot of quotes n verses out of the bible and assume that is the reasoning behind your beliefs. Ok what makes you think a text supposedly written back in the dark ages is credible? Back then, they didnt know what caused diseases, volcanoes and other natural disasters. Because of modern technology we know the answers to so much more now. Even the creation stories, they make little to no sense. There is a video on you tube that explains alot of my questions i have always had. If you will go to you tube and search The most wrong anyone ever was. Darkmatter 2525

Once again let me mention the hebrew number system for reading the bible. No other religious text has that kind of quality or depth to it. There have been a lot of movies basd on this mystery. There are a certain group of scientist and historians who have been using the number system to read the original hebrew text that our bible is translated from. By using the numbers in certain dates, they've found amazing things. It's hard for me to explain. I've been trying to find a link to it today so you could see what I'm talking about. Anyway, the scientist and historians say it seems imposible for a person to have planned such a thing and for it to continue through every text written thousands of years apart. As soon as I can find a link, I will share and I will go watch your video as well.

Also a lot of the old testament "rules" no longer apply today but looking back, now that we know more about disease, these things probably stopped the spreading of diseases. crazy rules like burn a chair if a woman on her period sets on it, not eating pork (they didn't have reliable ways to make it safe to eat), and several other odd things you'll find in the old testament.

I, being the ripe old age of 32, do not cliam to have all the answers. I know people a lot better than I know God because I've known them a lot longer. I know that people want to make a name for themselves. If they prove the bible right, well then they've discoverd nothing new. If they come up with a new idea and enough people jump on board, they're the next Darwin. Darwin himself recanted his own theory and decided it didn't work but you don't hear a lot about that. Archeologist say "Either a great ice age happened or a massive flood. Well a massive flood couldn't have happened so it must have been an ice age." For all I know Mt Everest wasn't as high back in Noah's time, maybe there weren't so many species of animals. Maybe God only flooded what was the known world to Noah's time. Just like you, I go on what I've seen. Since becoming a christian I have seen some amazing things that I don't know how to explain. I've seen a woman that I've known for years who had one leg shorter than the other get healed. I watched her leg grow before my eyes and she never limped from then on up to this very day. Her shorter leg was real to her for her whole life, and it's real to her now that it's the same size as the other. I can not logically explain that away. I have seen "ghosts" tormenting people in their homes and I made them leave. It was real to the people experiencing it and it really stopped afterwards. I've really seen and experiencedso many things and I can't scientifically explain them away.

I think that for age 32 you are a very wise and honest person. Certainly wiser then I was at 32. Good luck to you.

I understand that what people experience forms their beliefs, thats only normal but in my 52 years i have never experienced, ghost, never seen anyones legs, arms etc grow. Never seen any miracles at all, never even prayed for anything, one reason is i am a non believer and i figured there are starving children somewhere in the world that needs things alot more than i do. You really seen a ghost? Besides the intelligence level, what is the difference between humans which are mammals and any other mammal? Every mammal, humans included needs the same things to support life, food, water, shelter n such. KBodies function the same brain, lungs heart etc, so why would a human have a soul and any other mammal dont? Suppose a man was riding a horse across a highway and a semi truck smashed them,blood n guts everywhere mixed together n cant tell one from the other. The horse just rots but a soul comes out of the human??? Even though we are basically the same?
Its just not logical.
One other thing about people thinking they see things, i have been all around this state exhibiting animals and it never fails i get people telling me they see black panthers? Black panther is a melanistic phase of a leopard, native to s america and asia, not in wv, but they actually believe they see them here , but dont make it so. I guess if i see a ghost i will believe, and if ever see god, then i will believe. Actually this weather keeps it up, that ol fire n brimstone not sounding to bad.

I haven't seen a ghost. Honestly I don't believe in ghosts, that's why it was in quotations. What I saw was things being thrown across the room. Not just falling down, it flew violently. The people were scared, they said it was a ghost. I said it wasn't but I'd be interested in seeing what they were talking about. Once I saw it I couldn't explain what it was. Biblically I suppose it could be a demon but that explanation wouldn't satisfy you so I don't know what to call it. Anyway, I did see it. They asked if, being a christian, I could get rid of it. I said sure, if one person can do it than anyone can. I've heard priests and preachers say they've done it. They said it hasn't happened since.

I did become a christian before seeing my friends leg healed or the "ghost" thing happen. I was somewhat athiest with an open mind. I thought if God did exist (that was a big if to me at the time) He should mind His own business and I'll mind mine. We'll just stay out of each others way. I was curious about christians though and what made them tick. One day I said "God if you're real, prove it to me". He did so I started getting to know Him. As far as finding out that he's not as stuck up and harsh as most christians will lead you to believe, I highly recommend Joseph Prince. He's the only tv preacher I can really tune into. Doesn't do all that begging for money and stuff.

He doesn't try to guilt you or scare you to heaven either. He's a funny-fun kind of preacher.

Pick your own BS and live by it. Cause anything we say can be contradicted. The End.

P.S. anything else is just trolling or running in place.

Here's one web site on the hebrew code I was talking about. If you look up torah codes on google you can find many sites. Sorry it took me so long.

As to the questions about other animals, my personal belief is that animals will be in heaven as well. I look in my dog's eyes and there is life and personality and intelligence (when she wants to listen to me, if I say something she doesn't like suddenly she looses all inteligence and forgets her training, lol) They have structered thought and feelings. I believe if time is endless in heaven then maybe the landscape is too and there is room for all. Going back to the bible, it says the lion will lay down with the lamb. If there are lions and lambs there, why wouldn't there be other animals?

I love Joseph Prince. I like how he goes into the history of christian beleifs and the hebrew and greek stuff. If you have questions about the christian religion, he'd be the guy to watch.

Yea, but what makes you think the christian religion is right? If you give credibility to one religion isnt it only right to give credibility to all religions? Seriously the earth is a big place, lots of people, lots of different religions, different beliefs and none can be proven right? So what makes one right and others wrong?
