The "grace of God" was given the moment Jesus died. The grace of God is a gift and as such is unconditional. Our only requirement is that we receive His grace by accepting the truth of Jesus' purpose, sacrifice, and resurrection. It's pretty straight forward.

You don't believe in God, so let it go dip-stick! You're not man enough, or intelligent enough to duke it out with The T-Town Clown! And, you're definitely not funny being so filled with hate, so don't try being funny. What's so chicken$#!+ about you atheists ... you talk out your @ss with your crap with absolutely no evidence to back up your worthless bull$#!+... which in turn shows you brainless morons don't have a clue as to what LIFE is. Hey, thinking, Bro Clownie has a pertinent question for you ... have you learned how to tie your shoes yet? Inquiring minds want to know! Now, have yourself a wonderful day out their in your hate-filled parallel universe walking around in circles ... ya hear!?

What a flimsy doctrine to base your life on. Jesus NEVER really died now did he? He ascended into heaven a few days later. It's NOT a sacrifice unless you really die. And the whole fantastic story is laughable. God and Jesus are one of the same (the holy trinity) So God sacrifices himself to himself, but never really dies, as he ascends into heaven a few days later. Further, God/Jesus KNOWS that he can really never die as he is omnipotent. The entire premiss is total insanity and only the religiously deluded could even begin to accept such bullshit. Shame on anyone who would suspend their critical thinking and accept this bullshit and factual.

Asking questions is the sign of inquisitive minds. Our purpose here isn't to convert people (we can't) or "win the argument". The purpose of Christian Apologetics is to present what we believe to be true in a thoughtful, rational, and civil manner. Yes I like having ball-busting fun and I can be as passionate about my beliefs as the next person, but malice and self-pride aren't Christian attributes, or at least they shouldn't be.

Okay, how do you come to the conclusion that Jesus didn't really die?

Oh I see. It just seems having a full blown console world game would do well. I guess that would hurt game boy sales maybe.

Not Gameboy sales, those were replaced a long time ago but the DS, which is what most people play Gameboy games on now. The 3DS is the latest, and may eventually include a downloadable and updated version of the old Pokemon games, which would be so awesome.

I gave up with the Final Fantasy series, since the only one beyond 6 that was any good was 12, and most Final Fantasy fans did not like 12 so I am doubting there will ever be any others I like released.

As to the new 3DS, it's awesome, looking so forward to getting mine. All my friends have one now, save a few, most of those without are just waiting to get their 3DS like me, either through the mail or delayed because of budgeting issues. I should get commission from Nintendo for convincing people to buy one. lol But a quick browse through the downloadable content, capabilities, etc. convinces most gamers it's a good buy. Nintendo announced some time ago that they would be focusing on their portables, I am glad they did, they will be the Apple of gaming but affordable. It's a handheld game console that has all the power and capabilities of many cellphones. Plus the cartridge based system fuels the used gaming market, something Nintendo does not seem to oppose.

So he DID'NT rise from the grave and assigned into heaven? If he did, thats NOT dying. People who make a sacrifice for other die and STAY dead. A very good friend of mine sacrifices his life so that me, and other around me could live. That was a REAL sacrifice, he died so other could live and he STAYED DEAD.

If you're bullshit story is real, then Jesus, who is also God, knew that he could truly never die, he knew this before he scarifies himself. He knew that he could never die and would resume his existence after the crucifixion. If someone told me that I could live forever like a God, and all I had to do was suffer for a day, I'd do it in a second.

"God sacrificed his only son to take away our sins."

1.) It wasn't his son, or so the christian doctrine states. God/Jesus/holy spirit, all part of the holy trinity. It is said they are one, so by your own doctrine God scarified himself to himself.

2.) God is omnipotent, he can see the future, he knew, hence Jesus knew, that he would assigned into heaven a few days after his crucifixion.

3.) Hence, Jesus never really died, no sacrifice, it goes down in history as the greatest scam ever, and you poor slobs buy into it. Once again, shame on you for not exercising what meager intelligence you have, to apply critical thinking to this obviously bogus religious story.

MC is the best Protoss player around the world. He is even nicknamed the Protoss president.

MC sang songs passionately in the seventh HomeStory Cup tournament. He performed just like a hot star! Awesome! We all suggest him to be a singer rather than a player. Let’s enjoy MC’s singing.

Hitler was a devout Christian who wanted to install Protestantism as the main religion in Germany. We have dozens of pictures of Catholic bishops mingling and dining with Hitler. Many even blessed him.

<quoted text>wo Popes served through the Nazi period: Pope Pius XI (1922-1939) and Pope Pius XII (1939-1958). The Holy See strongly criticized Nazism through the late 1920s and throughout the 1930s, with Cardinal Pacelli (later Pope Pius XII) being a particularly outspoken critic.[4] In 1933, Vatican signed a Concordat with Germany - hoping to protect the rights of Catholics under the Nazi government. The terms of the Treaty were not kept by Hitler. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica: "From 1933 to 1936 [Pius XI] wrote several protests against the Third Reich, and his attitude toward fascist Italy changed dramatically after Nazi racial policies were introduced into Italy in 1938."[5]

Pius XI offered three encyclicals against the rising tide of European totalitarianism: Non abbiamo bisogno (1931; We Do Not Need to Acquaint You - against Italian Fascism); Mit brennender Sorge (1937; “With Deep Anxiety”- against Nazism) and Divini redemptoris (1937; “Divine Redeemer”- against atheist Communism). Non abbiamo bisogno directly challenged Italian fascism as a "pagan" movement which "snatches the young from the Church and from Jesus Christ, and which inculcates in its own young people hatred, violence and irreverence".[6] Pius XI also challenged the extremist nationalism of the Action Francaise movement and anti-semitism in the United States.[7]

With Europe on the brink of war, Pius XI died on 10 Feb 1939 and Pacelli was elected to succeed him as Pope Pius XII. The Nazi Government was the only government not to send a representative to his coronation.[8] Pius lobbied world leaders hard to avoid war and then pursued a policy of cautions diplomacy following the outbreak of the war.[9][10]

From around 1942, the Nazis had begun to implement their final solution - the industrial extermination of Europe's Jews.
