No, your words give you away. They show you to be a barely literate half wit with the intelligence of a brain damaged gnu.

As you have proved your bible contradictory, it also doesn't know my future.

The bible could stop my kitchen table from wobbling though.

Wriggle wriggle, squirm squirm. You fundies are very good at wriggling and squirming and the more you lie and condemn the better the wriggle, the better the squirm. Instead wasting all that energy lying, condemning, wriggling and squirming, why don't you go and experience something you obviously have never experienced before? Go and get laid! BTW, old Romans Road is also in dire need of getting laid, maybe you two could get together, but enough of playing Cupid!
If you have a life why don't you go live it? You obviously don't.

What is your religion??? Don't you know?
One definition of religion is:

4
: a cause, principle, or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith

Belief can be a deceptive word that gives one the delusion of knowledge. But belief is based on accepting words. These words can be vocal or written. They may be true or they may not.

Accurate knowledge is a personal realization. And it is upon Accurate knowledge that real faith is based.

I don't have a religion. I base my life on my own personal examination of what is. I have verified to my satisfaction the truth of the statement at the core of historical Christianity:

GOD is LOVE.

This LOVE can be confirmed to be real by any who care to put forth the effort.

Than is just a matter of practicing it in your day to day life as stated in Matthew 22:34-40 (King James Version)

"34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.

35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."

Of course to LOVE GOD we have to KNOW GOD as it states in John 17:3

"3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."

You can not LOVE whom you do not know!

And how do you KNOW GOD, you might ask!

Here is a simple path. In Psalm 46:10 (New International Version)

"10 He says, "Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."

that's it! Learn to still the constant chatter of the mind and learn to be fully aware of what is. Than you can begin to KNOW GOD. And once you KNOW GOD, than you can LOVE GOD, and once you can LOVE GOD, you can LOVE your neighbor.

It can hardly be called a religion but it is a spiritual path and is the path I am on, the same path the historical Jesus and many other mystics have walked.

<quoted text>You need to read ALL the verses on "judging." Like I Cor 6. Peter and Paul had no problem telling someone they were "In the bond of iniquity." You are preaching the "fatherhood of God, brotherhood of man" garbage that is NOT in accordance with God's Word. You are only a child of God when you are born again into His family. Otherwise, you are just one of His creations. He must be just and true and can only justify you through admitting your disobedience, repenting from it, and believing Jesus Christ is the only acceptable sacrifice for your filthy sins.

Ok, you reject the Biblical Jesus. That's an eternal problem for you. You face the Biblical Hell fire forever.
You are really slow. Jesus was a Jew. The only bible he had was the Hebrew Scriptures. The Hebrew Scriptures do not support your twisted psychotic god of hell fire.

It is you that reject the biblical Jesus in preference to the Mithra myth based false Jesus of the Roman hoax of Christianity.

The historical Jesus taught that GOD is LOVE.

You demonstrate the opposite.

Wake up!

Whatever your religion is it isn't Christian. Jesus is not your Savior. Satan has deceived you with his counterfeit.

Your version of Christianity is based on the Roman hoax created as a political tool to control the populace of Rome with fear. It has no relationship to the true form of Christianity based on the LOVE that you scorn as you curse everyone to an imaginary hell who disagrees with this hoax . And your imaginary satan that shares nothing with the Jewish Satan is a part of this hoax you defend.

But not to worry! You will grow out of it! If not in this lifetime, in another, as you are cast down to earth again and again until you learn how to LOVE.

We all need to get informed as to the evil nature of the Roman hoax of Christianity and it's many derivatives that deny the Jewish GOD and the Jewish Jesus and get involved in restoring true Christianity based on the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel to humanity that is even now being found to be in accord with the latest scientific findings concerning the nature of the Cosmos!

GOD is LOVE. WE are ALL ONE WITH GOD, even the unloving!

why do you always answer every post with false allegations and cursing people to your imaginary hell?

I suspect it is because you don't even understand what it is you are defending.

Poor soul. Hate is hastening your demise. ONLY LOVE will help you now.

GOD does not call me a fool but you just did in the name of Saul of Tarsus, who you have clearly stated is your god.

Can't you provide any compelling evidence to prove to people that you have the true form of Christianity.

I guess not. All you can do is engage in vile attacks on those who actually do make an attempt to back up with proof their convictions. Proofs that you refuse to even read as you attack again and again mindlessly!

I don't think I will respond to your posts anymore until you wake up to who you truly are and apologize for your despicable behavior here on topix.

have a nice day if you can tear yourself away from insulting GOD and humanity here on topix.
