To amplify what I just posted, let me offer this example:

A man and his wife and their infant son are shipwrecked and land on a remote and uninhabited island.

They survive by fishing and eating the fruits and vegetables that grow on the island.

The man and his wife are both atheists, and never teach their child about religion or faith.

Eventually the man and woman die, leaving the son to fend for himself.

When he dies, will he be consigned to Hell? Will God punish him because he was never given an opportunity to learn about God?

Hitler's gas chambers would not have functioned without christian obedience.

I don't believe that it is meant in that way.
By trusting in Him, we show our faith, love, and obedience.

Maybe things would have been different in nazi Germany if Hitler had emulated Jesus.

It proves NOTHING since you are Biblically illiterate.
If I'm "Biblically" illiterate do your duty and educate me. First question I have for you is this.

How can the devil show Jesus all the kingdoms of the world from A very high mountain? Do you think Australia & North America can be seen from a very high mountain in the middle east? Obviously you could do that on a very clear day if the earth was flat like the Bible says it is..

Mat 4:8 Again, the devil took him up into an exceeding high mountain, and shewed him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

Maybe, maybe not. Hitler was the catholic leader of a majority protestant country. Many seemed very complicit to follow a hate agenda.

So what fraction of christianity do you estimate to be emulating your jesus?

Just another example of the Bible authors assuming the world is flat..I'm beginning to think you don't believe the Bible is the inspired word of the Christian God, do you??? I know you don't answer many questions, but thought I'd ask anyway..

>snip<
In the King James Version of the Bible the text reads:

Again, the devil taketh him up into an
exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

The World English Bible translates the passage as:

Again, the devil took him to an exceedingly
high mountain, and showed him all the
kingdoms of the world, and their glory.

Have you thought about it being a vision?

I view people should have a personal relationship with God and not a man made religion.

**********

Stop and THINK about what you are saying, instead of mindlessly repeating that which you are brainwashed to say.

God is >>>NOT<<< a physical man-"god" as in the Christian mythology. Never was, is, or will be.

God is the vast and all powerful soul/spiritual energy Deity who creates, maintains, and controls, the universe. God IS the living universe, and the universe IS the living God.

So it sounds foolish when you say you are so "special" that YOU have a personal "relationship" with the seemingly endless universe. It is like saying a fish has a personal "relationship" with the ocean.

You are without excuse.

Romans 1:20 (NKJV)
20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

It was a supernatural event, a miracle. The Bible is a Book of miracles.

"in a moment of time"

Luke 4:5 (NKJV)
5 Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

“they could not believe”

John 12:39-40 (NKJV)
39 Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again: 40 "He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, Lest they should see with their eyes, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them."

If a supernatural event happened in our natural universe like you think, it would no longer be "supernatural".

You're right, here's a religious miracle right here in this link as proof..Faith is required for miracles though, and these people have plenty of faith just like you..
