You have to maintain faith! It takes effort, it takes "doing"! You're faith is like a puppy, you have to nurture it - which is an act of doing.
No one is more arrogant than you who loves to call people retarded, and changes your screen name at the drop of the hat.
We all know you're the biggest idiot on here. You're the idiot poster child. Burgeoning Idiots look up to you.
You don't make the rules. I may change my screen name but the message is the same. How does one maintain faith? In believing in the Word of God.

One does not do as YOU do, take your faith and belittle it and mock what God SUPPOSEDLY one time gave you. As I have said, I do not believe you were EVER a believer and if you were, you were as the Pharisees who constantly demanded a sign and when you didn't get what you wanted you threw a little tantrum and quit the faith.

That is why nothing you post is of reverence to true believers. You come off as a conceited jerk.

I am worshipping Him EXACTLY as He said. I do not sacrifice animals because He said He was sick of animal sacrifice and rather wants our love. And as Jesus Christ said...

Deuteronomy 6:4 Listen, Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is One.

Mark 12:28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?

Mark 12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

Except that Paul contradicts what is written in the Bible, he tells people that it is okay to ignore the eternal Laws of Moses. And that makes him the very definition of a false prophet.
FYI, John contradicts almost everything from the synoptics, which makes him a very doubtful witness. Most likely, what is written in John was invented to fulfill a theological need rather than as an accurate record of anything Jesus might have said or did.
And I could take your religion of Wicca and tell you EXACTLY what is wrong with it and why you are doomed to hell if you continue to follow it.

You have no relevance in biblical matters because it is plain you are a pagan. Just because you can read the bible does not in NO WAY mean you understand it.

No, that would be you and your Jesus and Paul worship.

WRONG! The Bible does NOT say that blood is the only way to atone for sins. In FACT, Leviticus spells it out, that if a person cannot afford a goat, then they can bring a dove. If they can't afford that, then a bit of flour will do nicely. And if the still can't afford even that much, then the only thing that really matters is a sincere heart and a desire to not sin again.
The death of Jesus did NOTHING for the sins of ANYONE,(including Jesus himself) for the simple reason that human sacrifice is an abomination, and could NEVER be used for anything. Then too, the Bible makes it clear that NO ONE can atone for the sins of another; every man MUST pay the price for his own sins.
You are a confused and angry little man. You completely look over the spiritual annotations of the Blood Atonement.

How was the Children of Israel saved during the night of the death angel that killed all firstborn of Egypt? By the blood that was upon the door mantle. So, in a SPIRITUAL context, we MUST have the blood of Christ upon the mantle of our hearts, or mind so the death angel will PASSOVER us again at the end of the judgment.

And again, you are reading from the covenant between God and Israel but NOW the Blood of Christ is demanded and the only acceptable venue for the remission of sins of every kind since a sin is a sin.

All wrong. Except that I dont make the rules. But its insincere of a poster who jumps from name to name to name...its shows a cowardice and desire to trick others.

Belief is not something that can be left alone - it MUST be maintained. YOU, any Believer must work to maintain it. But too few American Xtians understand such nuances - because they prefer the easy Fundy Born-again loophole of the "Name it and Claim it" form of salvation. Say it once, say it loud, and then proceed to be a pr/ck about it - and you're golden with your alleged God.

Faith demands work to maintain it. Like all things that are truly unseen - like love of others - you need to work at it. Its all about the doing, not the lazy American way of such things.

I never belittled my Faith when I possessed it. I still dont, I only belittle - when I do such things - those like you who make absolute claims about themselves and their faith and their alleged understanding of the Religion.

I never demanded signs. I better understood my Religion and faith than that. Understood more than you can ever comprehend. I never threw a tantrum. I merely went on a Spiritual journey of exploration...full of practice and education, here in the US and overseas. I explored what most American Xtians cant fathom, and went places are inherently afraid to go in such explorations. For want of a better description I was educated out of it all the mumbo-jumbo. I kept what mattered, the few good messages and lessons, and dumped all the mumbo-jumbo - because its all fake.

And like I always say, YOU, no Xtian can take the faith from others, whether they still do or did believe in it. You have no such powers.

On the flip-side; I dont think you really believe as strongly as you claim. If you did you wouldn't be so sensitive to others critique, nor so quick to insult. You wanna be as strong in faith as you claim, thats why you harp on it all the time.

Conceited? Me? Sure, why not. I'm strong in my intelligence and strong in my faith in myself and those few people I hold dear to me, as well as my inherent skills. Am I hyper inflated in Ego? Nope! Am I a hyper absolutist like many American Xtians such as YOU? No way.

I find that what disturbs most American Xtians like you, and I've met way too many in my life - is my or any atheists confidence in in their positions. The more confidence I exhibit, the more apoplectic Xtians get...

Silly, ignorant child, what was said was that the God of the Bible was sick of EMPTY sacrifices, sacrifices made without repentance in the heart. As Ezekiel makes clear, once the REAL Messiah comes, the Temple will be rebuilt and the animal sacrifices will be performed:

Ezekiel 43:18 And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; These are the ordinances of the altar in the day when they shall make it, to offer burnt offerings thereon, and to sprinkle blood thereon.

And in the Hebrew, it is easier to see that the Shema specifically says that the children of Israel are to worship ONLY Yahweh, who is ONE God, and NOT part one of a trilogy.

Really? You want to stand behind this? Cause there's a mountain of evidence to prove the brain, the body in total is the "creator" of feelings and reasoning.

But lets play your game. If someone suffers a brain trauma, how is it that they can lose the ability to reason? Or to feel certain emotions?

Does the soul get brain damaged too?

Minor point, but I am not Wiccan. Even if I was, I seriously doubt that anything that you could say would have any bearing on the truth.

There is no Hell, that is just a xian myth invented to scare the ignorant.

Relevance? Well, I will continue to point out the facts about what the Bible REALLY says. Once you die, you will find out just how right I am.

Was he a man and God at the same time? Did he flip in and out of either, and if so what scripture explains that?

If he was both at the same time - how could such a being ever truly know true Human suffering? If he had a God aspect to his nature to rely on (like when in the desert, or during his scourge) that makes him a hybrid, and not human. So he never really could have suffered like a true human.
