We like some parts of God's nature: God is loving, merciful, kind, forgiving, compassionate.
But God's nature also includes wrath, justice, absolute holiness, and absolute purity.
It is ourselves that need to come to the realization of what SIN is and what SIN does to us spiritually and physically.
I understand you miss God's message daily, but then you won't believe a word I post anyways......so carry on with trampling the rights of others to believe differently than you!!!

In various other Gospels and from God Himself:-)

Just because some felt that only 66 books deserved to be canonized based on what they felt.....doesn't mean they are God's words at all and unlike you, I don't need to justify my beliefs with others.......they are mine and I'm entitled to them.....even if you can't agree with them or understand them........but a big part of believing in God has to do with faith!!!

Funny how YOUR God hates the same things as you do.....condemns the same things you do and judges others the same way you do.......and I'm suppose to accept your beliefs as somehow being more valued than my own!!!

I do sin, but who I am is not a Sin and who I am married to is not a Sin and God ALONE knows my sins.....you do not!!!

You are entitled to your rights.....but they END where mine BEGIN!!!
As mankind found itself adrift in a sea of evil, pain, and suffering, the question eventually would arise...

Why?

Man thus needed to be educated concerning the exact reason(s) for his predicament.

SIN and DISOBEDIENCE....

Interesting how "your faith" is exactely What Jesus predicted concerning those who would be attracted to the Harlot

John was a lamp that burned and gave light .. and you chose for a time to enjoy his light ... I [ Jesus ] have testimony weightier than that of John .. For the very work that the Father has given me to finish .. and which I am doing .. testifies that the Father has sent me ... And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me .. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form .. nor does his word dwell in you .. for you do not believe the one he sent ... You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life .. These are the Scriptures that testify about me .. yet you refuse to come to me to have life ... I do not accept praise from men .. but I know you .. I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts ... I have come in my Father's name .. and you do not accept me .. HOWEVER ... if someone else comes in his own name .. you will accept him .... John 5:35-43

Do you believe that God loves sin???

Or, do you believe that God hates sin???

Do you believe that you can hide your sins from God???

Belief/Faith cannot be separated.....

Genuine faith produces righteousness in us.

Belief equals proper behavior or righteous living.

Funny, how I figured you'd make some asinine post, but then that's what bible worshipers do......they can't allow others to believe differently, so they have to trash their beliefs in order to feel better about themselves.......and if that's what you want to do......so be it, I'm secure in my religious beliefs that no matter what you believe or say.....it won't change what God has shown me!!!

Peace:-)

Well, you may worship the author of the bible, but that's just mere mortal men who wanted to be Gods.....so, either way......you still aren't grasping God's message!!!

As soon as you inject the bible, you lose any discussion with me. You have every right to worship the words in that book, but you continually fail to understand that NOT everyone has to believe in that book in order to have a relationship with God.....plain and simple!!!

Seems that what Evangelistic Christians don't get is that NOT EVERYONE has to believe as they do........you are entitled to believe as you want, I am entitled to believe as I want........it's called the Freedom of Religion and NO ONE PERSON HAS THE RIGHT TO TELL OTHERS HOW TO BELIEVE......no matter what you reasons may be.....and it is not your place to judge me or others, nor your place to condemn me.....that's God's place and He will decide that when I face Him on my Judgment day!!!
