God is a righteous Holy God. God is love. God will not go back on His word.
You must be born again by the Holy Ghost of God. You cannot make your own rules. Nor is the pride and self-righteousness acceptable.
No one comes to Jesus except the Father calls them. No can come to God except by Jesus. And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. 66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? 68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. 69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
John 6:65-69 (KJV)
You yourself claim that God will not go back on His word, yet christianity is based on exactly that, it REQUIRES that God go back on His word and completely change the ETERNAL Covenant that He made with the children of Israel. Jesus preached Judaism...

We can split hairs over how much it has been edited, but the fact that it has at all (more than you imply by the way) rather sinks your theory that it is magically protected by god. And this still does not address the very real problem of translation. This goes back to my questioning why this deity came one to one place and never wrote anything down, and left it's message to a long game of telephone. Why not come back periodically with updates? Give the message to succeeding generations in clear terms in their own languages? Not to difficult for an omnipotent deity one would think.
Right on. I agree. I am constantly reminded how God's word is flouted even firm believers refuse to act according to Deuteronomy 21:18-21 King James Version (KJV):

18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:

19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;

20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.

21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.

Liam; you don't have a clue. Jesus told them they were of their father the devil. He told them they were hypocrites. He told them their temple would be destroyed.

He said; for God so loved the world (everybody)- as in the whole world - everyone. A woman taken in adultery; forgiven. Sin is an abomination and God is a righteous God that the wicked shun and scorn turning their backs on Him to do as they please.

All have sinned; but the unbelief will place you with the wicked because you have forsaken the true and living God. Judaism will not provide salvation; only Jesus' atoning finished work is adequate. You will stand before Him soon and give account - regardless, you will give an account. After this life it is too late to change, you will be judged according to this life.

God gave Israel their space and Jesus came just as prophesied per Daniel exactly when to the date listed. Daniel's prophecy was 70 Sabbaths. It began in 457 BC and ended in the 70th Sabbath with the ushering into the Kingdom of the Gentiles.

Do the math and read the scriptures: Jesus was born in September (probably the ninth, per Luke 2 and was crucified ~Passover 30 AD and 40 yrs later the temple was destroyed via the providence of God.

God has kept His promises - all of them. Additional short reads; Eze 8 and Jer 3.

Daniel is not a book of prophecy. All of the LEGITIMATE Messianic prophecies show that Jesus was NOT the Messiah, since he failed to fulfill MOST of them.

You don't really have a clue do you......

Here's the Messianic prophecy to the year:
Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. 25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. 27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Dan 9:24-27 (KJV) The whole thing was fulfilled in 490 years from the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist to the stoning of Stephen and Paul. Why is it that those claiming not to know speak out of the other side of their mouth saying they do. Maybe you should pay closer attention to verse 24.

After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year
Num 14:34 (KJV)

Now apply to Daniel and do the math: 457BC to Jesus' resurrection and the stoning of Stephen = 490 years fulfilling the 70 Sabbaths prophecy.
