How about trying this:
Just ask JESUS to show Himself too you.
If you truly have an open mind, then pray and meditate on the scriptures and ask JESUS for guidance.
CrimeaRiver, Remember that most all of the original Apostles died horrible deaths all because they would not deny that they saw JESUS come back from the dead.
They saw HIM come back.
I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
The only reason for any religion to flourish is the shameless indoctrination of children in religious dogma long before they can make intelligent evaluations of the ideas. How can people talk about a Christian or Muslim child? Is that any different than talking about a post-modernist or socialist child?
Travel away from Earth at the speed of light for half an hour and you would enter the frozen realm of the outer Solar System. Out here are planets that are nothing but atmosphere - unimaginably vast balls of churning gas and ice. These are alien, chaotic worlds with storms large enough to swallow Earth three times over and winds screaming across their surface at nearly the speed of sound – no God no religion!

Condemning North Korea’s Latest Nuclear Test Is Meaningless

By Buddhi Kota Subbarao
(Contd.)
According to China’s foreign ministry, its Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi summoned North Korea’s ambassador to China on Tuesday (Feb 12, 2013) to tell him Beijing was “strongly dissatisfied and resolutely opposed” to North Korea’s nuclear test.

Reactions to the latest North Korean nuclear test, from the United States, Japan, South Korea, Russia, and China betray their struggle to find their individual positions on the geopolitical chess game. The condemnation by U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, NATO, the European Union, and the International Atomic Energy Agency, shows the wide spread deception practiced through these institutions. One is compelled to remember George Orwell,“In an age of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act"

Nowhere the universal deceit and arrogance is more evident than in the words of US President. "The danger posed by North Korea's threatening activities warrants further swift and credible action by the international community. The United States will also continue to take steps necessary to defend ourselves and our allies," President Obama said in released remarks.

These words of President Obama are a deceit because the United States even under President Obama is spending billions of dollars to perfect its nuclear weapons. Therefore the meaning that flows from the threatening words of Obama is, the United States which wages war against other countries without a cause would not allow any country to pick up ability to fight back the United States. North Korea as a self-respecting nation is developing its ability to fight back the unjust United States.

Just like the people of Iraq suffered more from the sanctions imposed against Iraq than from the alleged despotic rule of Saddam Hussain, the people of North Korea would suffer more from the sanctions than from the vicissitudes of socialistic rule in North Korea.

For these reasons it is meaningless to condemn the latest nuclear test by North Korea. The same reasons also would show that it would be inhuman and unjust to subject North Korea to any sanctions.

Buddhi Kota Subbarao is former Indian Navy Captain with Ph.D. in nuclear technology from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay and advocate of Supreme Court of India. E-mail : bksubbarao@gmail.com

Comrade MUQ, your thoughts?
Russia is reportedly sending military aid to Syria that seems designed to counter any attempt at military intervention from the US or other Western countries. US officials tell the New York Times that Russia has sent the regime new, radar-equipped anti-ship cruise missiles, weapons that could fend off an international naval blockade. To wit, one expert describes the Yakhont missiles as "a real ship killer." Russia has also sent at least a dozen warships to patrol the waters near its Syrian base, the Wall Street Journal reports. "It is a show of force," a US defense official says. "It's muscle flexing."
US officials responded yesterday by warning that Israeli airstrikes could target the missile shipments. The posturing comes even as the situation on the ground grows thornier; essentially the country has split in three, a dire front-page New York Times analysis concludes, with radical Islamists dominating a Sunni region in the north, Hezbollah and other pro-regime forces controlling the country's midsection, and Kurds staking out an autonomous region. "It is not that Syria is melting down," one analyst says. "It has melted down."
Just wait and watch, whatever they decided it wont have any good for Syrian people that is for sure.

My advice would be to leave them to their fate.

Thank you for your feedback MUQ.

I am understanding Islam much better.

BUT, according to the Judeo/Christian Scriptures JESUS will come again to judge the living and the dead.

( All Humankind ).

==========

Revelation 3:10

10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.

=========

Revelation 19:11-21

The Heavenly Warrior Defeats the Beast

king of kings and lord of lords.

17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair,“Come, gather together for the great supper of God, 18 so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and the mighty, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, great and small.”


=========

1 Thessalonians 4:14-18

Ans.

I am happy that you are trying to understand Islam.

Brother, the idea that Jesus will come down to earth to Judge people as Ruler and God is the "brain child" of St. Paul and his followers.

This is not what Jesus told people while he was alive.

Quotations from St. Paul and the book of revelation (no one knows who wrote that book) will only prove what I said.

Please look at the words of jesus recorded in the three Gospels and then reflect.

Jesus will surely come down to earth, near the end of time, but his mission would be to kill the Anti Christ, and not to judge the world.

Judging the world is the Prerogative of God, The Lord, the Master and Creator of this Universe and everything in it, including Jesus.

That is a fairly pointless way of looking at the world.
If you wish to live your life as a god fearing human, then that is your choice. But i wouldn't pu too much emphasis on biblical quotes that are ambiguous at best.
I will live my life as decently, compassionately and as respectfully as i can. If I get to the gates of heaven to be refused for not accepting Christ, then perhaps Christianity isn't as forgiving and as compassionate as it claims to be.
But more likely, I will die. And thats it.
Its better to create a paradise here on earth than to hope for a paradise in the afterlife.
Much better to realise reality!

Its near impossible to believe in a religion that assigns original sin to every human at the point of birth.
A child with no concept of sin or humanity is born a sinner and must absolve itself before Christ for salvation.
Come on - seriously?
Conversely - an actual sinner; rapists, murderers, child traffickers can be absolved from their disgusting deeds by repenting on their deathbed and asking for absolution.
Here is a faith where a man, a human man can excommunicate someone and deny their entry to a fabled heaven.
Again! seriously?
Your answers aren't filling me with much hope for humanity. It makes me sad that we have come so far, have acheieved so much, have unlocked so many secrets through research and study. We have split an atom, we have travelled to space, we have decoded ancient languages, we the ability replace hearts, lungs, kidneys, we have done so much. And yet there are still people who tell us that the only answers are through Jesus Christ.
Jesus - a man who supposedly saved us all through his martyrdom.
I fail to see how we've been saved or how his death resulted in salvation for mankind
Jesus died 2000 years ago or so! The Bible belt is the most backward Region in the US!

Revelation 1
1 The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, 2 who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.
Greetings and Doxology
4 John,
To the seven churches in the province of Asia:
Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits[a] before his throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.
To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, 6 and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen.
7 “Look, he is coming with the clouds,”[b]
and “every eye will see him,
even those who pierced him”;
and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.”[c]
So shall it be! Amen.
8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God,“who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
John’s Vision of Christ
9 I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. 10 On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, 11 which said:“Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea.”
12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man,[d] dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.
17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said:“Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. 18 I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.
19 “Write, therefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later. 20 The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels[e] of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.

MUQ, the whole bible speaks of JESUS and certainly the 4 Gospels, not only St. Paul.

I agree that GOD will judge the world but JESUS & His FATHER is somewhat of a mystery.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
The Spirit of GOD wrote the Bible through humankind.
16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Matthew 19:28

Jesus said to them, "Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Matthew 28:18-20
18 Then Jesus came to them and said,“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 11:25-30

The Father Revealed in the Son
25 At that time Jesus said,“I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. 26 Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.
27 “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Matthew 12:1-8

Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath
12 At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick some heads of grain and eat them. 2 When the Pharisees saw this, they said to him,“Look! Your disciples are doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath.”
3 He answered,“Haven’t you read what David did when he and his companions were hungry? 4 He entered the house of God, and he and his companions ate the consecrated bread—which was not lawful for them to do, but only for the priests. 5 Or haven’t you read in the Law that the priests on Sabbath duty in the temple desecrate the Sabbath and yet are innocent? 6 I tell you that something greater than the temple is here. 7 If you had known what these words mean,‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’[a] you would not have condemned the innocent. 8 For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”

Let's put it like this. Do you, as a Christian, believe that lifeforms exist on other planets? Is it something you can accept as a Christian?
If, 15 years from now we find evidence of extra terrestrials, how will that fit in with your beliefs.
I assume you believe the earth is only 6,000-10,000 years old. With all the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, how can you still believe that
I certainly do believe that GOD could put people on other planets and galaxies, that we do not know about, and they would not look like little green Martians. LOL

Christians also believe in science and find no controversy with it.

High-grade Tar Sand Oil is a misnomer – there is no such thing!
Canada’s tar sands formations, landlocked in northern Alberta, are a giant mess of carbon-saturated energy — a mixture of sand, clay and a gelatin like low-grade petroleum called bitumen. Pipelines are the best way to get this messy resource to market, but existing pipelines to the United States are almost full. So tar sands companies, and the Canadian government looking for revenue, is desperately searching for export routes via new pipelines. Even Canadians don’t support construction of the pipeline they want the bloody miss the Oil Companies created out of Alberta!
Tar sands production in Alberta is the world’s most environmentally damaging site. It wrecks vast areas of boreal forest through surface mining and subsurface production. It sucks up huge quantities of water from local rivers, turns it into toxic waste and dumps the contaminated water into tailing ponds that now cover nearly 70 square miles. The extraction and treatment to turn the tar into usable products requires more energy than it yields – any questions?
Shows how ignorant to reality you truly are francis, that is disappointing to hear...wrong answer, try again...this time try to research beyond MSNBC...what is the connection with Obumble and Buffet? Here is a hint, if you disocver how they are currently shipping crude from Canada to the refineries in the deep south, and then do your research on the companies that own those current shipping avenues...you will be getting much warmer........or continue to stay ignorant and listen to lamestream media sources...
