no copy cat........ thats sillyness.<quoted text>
I don't believe in Jesus, he is a copy cat story from many different stories like his. I do however believe in God. i believe God exist in each and everyone of us, not in a book and not in the myths of the past. But in our hearts of here and now. I saw christianity for what it was, a cult of hate and it was not for me. Who are you to tell me i don't know God? you don't know my relationship with him, nor will you ever for it is mine, yours is yours. i give to charities not the church, that way I know my money is going where it is needed and not in the pockets of preachers and for the churches use. I follow the laws of the land, it keeps me out of trouble. The laws in the book you follow are old and ancient, and not of today. you go ahead and wear clothing of one fabric, not eat shell fish or pork, and so forth. that is on you not me, I know my heart and what lies within it. Your God you follow in your little book of words is a God of confusion, he is also a god of vengeance, a god of temper tantrums. not a god I want to follow. The God I know and love that dwells in my heart is a God of love, forgiveness, patients and wonder. I will choose that God over your fickle one any day.
you will not find the bones of Jesus in the tomb. its empty.
His resurrection was documented by more than one witness.
and over 500 saw Him.
your displaying what is called,'faithless scofferitis'.
you think you are good enough on your own merit to stand before a HOLY God?
have you ever told a lie?
have you ever lusted after someone?
have you ever hated in your heart?
have you ever stolen ANYthing?
if you have then GOD says you are a liar, an adulter of the heart, a murderer in the heart, a thief.
all things that warrent hell.
the ONLY way you can be reconciled back unto God is by accepting HIS plan of salvation given to you thru His Son Christ.
the blood shed on that cross was shed for the direct purpose of remission of sin.
and without that blood applyed to your soul thru your belief and acceptance of what He did for you, there is NO WAY .... NO WAY you can stand before a Holy and righteous God blameless.
when God looks at us, He see's Jesus as our advocate and the newness of our hearts and spirits by Jesus.
and that is how He CAN look upon us and not see our past sins.
without Jesus as your advocate God see's a sinners heart.
Jesus is the only way, the truth and the life...and NO ONE goes to the Father except thru the Son Jesus.
that is God's plan of salvation, outlined in the OT.
fulfilled in the NT.
