Well, "one", you can repeat it until the Sun burns up all of its hydrogen (about 5 billion years) and that still will not make it true. IF you would bother to actually READ the Bible and not just worship as an idol, you would clearly see that in NUMEROUS verses, it acknowledges the existence of foreign Gods. It does forbid the children of Israel from worshiping any of those Gods, but that only matters to the children of Israel.

TRY and think for a moment... There are two specific and DIFFERENT Commandments: one says to worship ONLY Yahweh and no other Gods and a completely different Commandment says to not worship any false gods, like Jesus, money, or the latest hot pop star.

perhaps you believe in many gods, and I am almost sure you don't believe in demonic entities. idk?
I am not digressing , but this conversation becomes endless.
That would depend on one's definition of "demonic entities". Most people seem to go with the concept that the Gods of my neighbors are my devils.

Oops. Looks like you were a day off with that. The Sabbath commanded by the God of the Bible was Saturday...

(Well, okay, I suppose that technically, it was Friday at sundown to Saturday at sundown.)

What a shame that three or four involved refuse to believe that there is a heaven and a hell. Eternity is beyond what we can imagine. I intend to be among those who want to be in the presence of God. IF we claim to be a Christian, then why aren't we in church worshipping and learning more about God. BEING GOOD won't do it; works won't do it. Going to church alone won't do it.
Actually, if you want to worship the God opf the Bible, being xian certainly won't so it, you MUST follow the Laws to the best of your ability. Lucky for you, that God made His laws and published them for everyone (who wants to) to see.

Deuteronomy 30:11 For this commandment that I command you today -- it is not hidden from you and it is not distant.[12] It is not in heaven,[for you] to say, "Who can ascend to the heaven for us and take it for us, so that we can listen to it and perform it?" [13] Nor is it across the sea,[for you] to say, "Who can cross to the other side of the sea for us and take it for us, so that we can listen to it and perform it?" [14] Rather, the matter is very near to you -- in your mouth and your heart -- to perform it.

Anyone who says that the Law cannot be follwed is a false prophet, tring to lead you away from the God of the Bible.

as I anticipated your response to be, but in truth they steal the life of human beings via deception. I guess it is a personal decision when it comes correct.
this is all a matter of "perception" on your part, but will be proved untrue as time marches on.

There are evil entities I believe, just as there is good there is bad. Like attracts like, if you live your life doing good works and doing the right thing you will attract that in your life. Same goes for bad, if you are close minded, mean dishonest and judgmental that's what you will attract in your life.

Look we all get it. The ONLY way to heaven is by jumping through your hoops.

Like I said, if heaven is filled with the hateful, arrogant self righteous blowhards like you that come to topix thinking you'll get extra points from God by preaching how bad everyone is and how good you are, I'll pass on your heaven, thanks.

God has made it possible for you to go to hell by not receiving Christ and making Him Lord of your life. Your mindset is full of sarcasm. Instead of being so observant of those you find as unacceptable Christians, you are commanded to take care of your individual choice of what you will do. God knows our hearts. Speaking as you do quite clearly, says you do NOT know Christ. That is the compelling issue at hand. Add a few more on here. For J to harp on treating others right -- that is secondary to making a decision for Christ. The rest will fall in place. Imagining thoughts that may not exist. What she should know is that her choices, lifestyle is wrong. That's NOT judging.

Oh I know Christ.

Funny but when I or someone else does what you do it's called bullying or judging.

When you do it you insist it isn't judging, just doing your Christian Duty.

Like I said, I've lived for over 50 years under the "Love" you show. I have also in that time experienced real Christian Love.

Interestingly enough that "Christian Love" has usually been demonstrated to me not by folks like you, but by the very people you insist DON'T KNOW CHRIST!

That's NOT judging. That's simply sharing my personal experiences with Jesus and folks like you.

Then you are totally in denial; if we know Christ, we don't make statements about not going to heaven because of OTHER people??? You really don't know what you are talking about. It's not duty; it's scrutinizing what you said very clearly along with a few others. Does NOT coincide with having Christ as the Lord of your life.

God will decide who is and who isn't a true Christian and that is the problem we have with each other.

I'm leaving it to God to decide. You already decided.

By you telling me my lifestyle is wrong is judging me you are not God when I die I wont be standing in front of you so yes you are judging me. Not like I care cause I know that by my living good in word and deed my path in life is secure to finding my place beside my God and it isn't secondary it is first because you may judge yourself by your intentions the rest of the world judges you by your actions.

INTENTIONS/WORKS get you nowhere near heaven. Again, you are creating in your mind what you think. That does NOT appear in the Bible as the gospel. There is what is called 'the plan of salvation.' Christ did it for us; there is NOTHING we can do in working our way to heaven or being good.

The bible is written by man it is not some magical path to heaven to follow because nobody follows it exactly. You can accept Christ as your savior but still live selfishly. I know in my heart I am following the right path by being of maximum service to God and others so by you telling me I am wrong just strenghens my belief that I am right.

Well, you are not right. P.S. The Bible is the INSPIRED Word of God. You are lacking tremendously in knowledge is why you are expressing such incorrect theology.

You do realize that it is God who determines who gets His theology right, not His followers, don't you? You may not share beliefs, but you should remember from reading the book, you are only praying that you got it right, you have yet to get your answer.
