I noticed that you skipped right over this one:
Jesus said, "If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin." (John 9:40–41)
“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."

<quoted text>Hey retard...
That is not what Jesus is saying to them. he is saying if they had plucked out their eyes then they would not sin with their eyes.
Matthew, Chapter 5
29: And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
All the atheist and you are still going to hell.
Wow, how Christian of you to call me "retard."

Here is John 9:35-41 in context:

Spiritual Blindness

Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said, "Do you believe in the Son of Man?"

"Who is he, sir?" the man asked. "Tell me so that I may believe in him."

Jesus said, "You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you."

Then the man said, "Lord, I believe," and he worshiped him.

Jesus said, "For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind."

Some Pharisees who were with him heard him say this and asked, "What? Are we blind too?"

Jesus said, "If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains."

----------

My point stands - people who have always been atheists are spiritually blind according to Scripture and therefore sinless, while people who have accepted that God exists and then rejected him are damned.

I know you don't want to accept this because you hate atheists and the fact that your Bible says people who are "blind" from birth are blameless, but if you are going to insist that your Jesus is never wrong then you have to reexamine your beliefs.

Psalms is Old Testament, and you're not an OT person, so that verse is negated.

As for Romans 1:20, again you took it out of context. First of all Romans is Paul speaking, not Jesus. Second, you need to read Romans 1:18-19 to understand what 1:20 is saying:

"The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them."

Paul is speaking of people who SUPPRESS the truth, meaning they know the truth and consciously decide to hide it.

Notice also that Paul says the WRATH of God is being revealed, and that's what the wicked people are suppressing: they are hiding the "truth" about the punishment that will befall those who believe that God exists and choose to reject him.

I am becoming weary of schooling people who claim to be Christians in their own theology. Are there ANY knowledgeable Christians on this thread that can step up and set matters right?

Romans 1:18-32:
In this passage Paul uses themes and rhetoric common in Jewish-Hellenistic mission proclamation to indict especially the no-Jewish world. The close association of idolatry and immorality is basic, but the generalization needs in all fairness to be balances against he fact that non-Jewish Christian society on many levels displayed moral attitudes and performance whose quality would challenge much of contemporary Christian culture. Romans themselves expressed abhorrence over devotion accorded to animal in Egypt. Paul's main point is that the wrath of God does not await the end of the world but goes into action at each present moment in humanity's history when misdirected piety serves as a facade for self-interest.

4 Bible Scripture on headband

#1432 Jul 16, 2013
Matthew 10:8 "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give."

Part 1

A.“...'Where did this man get these things' they asked.'What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing? Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t His sisters here with us?'*** AND THEY TOOK OFFENSE AT HIM.***

Jesus said to them,'A prophet is not without honor EXCEPT in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.' He could not do any miracles there, except lay His hands on a few sick people and heal them. He was amazed at their lack of faith".(Mark 6:2-6)

B. "...Jesus’ brothers said to Him,'Leave Galilee and go to Judea, so that Your disciples there may see the works You do. No one who wants to become a public figure acts in secret. Since you are doing these things, show yourself to the world.'*** FOR EVEN HIS OWN BROTHERS DID NOT BELIEVE HIM.***(John 7:3-5)

C. "...And when he had entered, He said to them,'Why are you making a commotion and weeping? The child is not dead but sleeping.' AND THEY LAUGHED AT HIM. But He put them all outside and took the child’s father and mother and those who were with Him and went in where the child was."

**********

Obviously Jesus performed miracles and healings instantly... Jesus gave His disciples those gifts as well... Some down the line like Smith Wigglesworth... Why aren't we seeing miracles and healings as we ought? See below:

1. The person wasn't give those particular gifts by God... they have another gift of the Spirit: "Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers... I Corinthians 12:7-10

a. "...Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing?..." I Corinthians 12:29-30

2. Because the people aren't "United" as it they ought to be as seen in Acts 2:44-47

3. Because of the GREED for money by many so-called faith healers which causes heightened doubt and skeptism. Perhaps they DO want people to be healed but they don't have pure motives because they are always talking about money for their ministries and live lavish lifestyles.

4. Where there is true belief and urgency on the part of a praying Believer (and they have the gifts of healing & miracles)... then there is pride, arrogance, doubt, unbelief, scorn and mockeries from unbelievers that very well hinders those gifts.

5. Where there is a Believer praying for another... they weren't given those type of spiritual gifts OR there is some type of disobedience in the life of the praying Believer if they do have those gifts...but their disobedience hinders them. The healing may come (although slowly) to the other person or may not even come at all.

6. Lack of prayer: Matthew 17:19-21....

7. Next up on Part 2... why was Jesus able to perform miracles and healings in cases where there were some skepticism present?

Inspirational verse for the day:
Mat 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth; I came not to send peace , but a sword .
As always, we must be aware of the audience addressed in various verses. Of course, Jesus was speaking to the Jews, as that was the people of His time and place on Earth.

Think not ye that I am come to send peace on earth,.... The Jews had a notion of great outward peace and prosperity in the days of the Messiah; which was grounded on several prophecies of the Old Testament, not rightly understood by them; and the disciples of Christ had imbibed the same notion: wherefore our Lord thought fit to let them know the contrary; and that they must not expect outward ease and quiet, and worldly tranquillity would attend their ministry; for though he came to be a peace maker between God and sinners, by the blood of his cross; and was both the author and donor of spiritual peace to his people; and the Gospel he brought with him, and sent them to preach, was the Gospel of peace; which, accompanied with his power, would produce peace in the consciences of men, and be the means of cultivating and maintaining peace among the saints; yet "peace on earth" in a temporal sense, whether in the world in general, or in Judea in particular, must not be expected as the consequence of his coming; so far from it, that he subjoins,

I came, not to send peace, but a sword. By the "sword" may be meant the Gospel, which is the means of dividing and separating the people of Christ from the men of the world, and from their principles and practices, and one relation from another; as also of divisions, discords, and persecutions arising from it: not that it was the intention and design of Christ, in coming into the world, to foment and encourage such things; but this, through the malice and wickedness of men, was eventually the effect and consequence of his coming; see Luke 12:51 where, instead of a "sword", it is "division"; because the sword divides asunder, as does the sword of the Spirit, the word of God.
