<quoted text>Yes ~ I wonder what it is that is required for one to have no doubt? I often ponder that and can never find an answer. Some say they have walked away from JESUS, and yet why would one ever walk away from their best friend; one who is always there and will never let you down? Why would you walk away from never ending comfort? And what do you find in place of all that JESUS can give us?
My only answer to those who say they have walked away from JESUS is to say that they never really walked with HIM in the first place ~ doubt must have been overriding FAITH.... It is the only answer that makes sense, in my humble opinion :)
If a GOD were all that to you, why are you on an entertainment site and not spending quality time with your GOD?

That would be reason enough. But there is more. I see Christians on these threads and in my life that are absolutely miserable.

You assume too much. Why would you be perfect in heaven? The angels that rebelled weren't. Are you expecting to be turned into a robot?
Well I happen to think your analysis of who has the gifts of spirit based on a internet billboard is quite absurd. Looks as if because Christians defend their faith, to you they do not have peace or the gifts of the Spirit.

Jesus defended and discussed passionately. Does that mean by your definition Jesus did not have the fruits of the Spirit and did not have peace?

You see Christians on this billboard and in your life that are miserable?? You can actually see the lives of Christians that are on this billboard??? Really? how so?

Maybe in your life behind the billboard you need to hang around different Christians :)

I will be perfect in heaven, because God is His word says I will be perfect in heaven.

Humans don't have dominion over [all] animals now. Go and try and tame a crocodile and see what happens. We lost dominion when sin was introduced.

All your theological gyrations and hypothetical arguments into a spiritual world is all precedent on the presence of Sin, Lucifer and a War.

And all three will not be present when the Jesus Follower enters Glory. Eventually Satan and his kingdom will be eternally damned, therefore no sin, and no war. Eternal Peace for the Jesus Follower. Glory to God!

IANS, if U disagree that all things are possible with God it should depend on what U feel is impossible. From the looks of things, from the farthest reaches of the universe to the smallest unit of life or matter we've discovered, it seems as though there are not much we can say that is impossible unless U can think of something.
There is plenty that is impossible.
DeAngelo of Memphis wrote:
So all things ARE possible through "a powerful force or entity that transcends space and time" or something like that, right. If U feel that my argument is flawed, point out where U disagree.
What argument? You've merely stated that some amazing things are true, and that you are unaware of anything that is impossible.

The scripture in question - Matthew 17:20 - "And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."

You can't think of a single thing that is impossible for you? For starters, how about you remove a mountain by talking to it.

Then visit the sun without a spacecraft and without burning. Then swim into abyssal waters. Then inhale a liter chlorine gas and survive. Then get younger. Then destroy energy. Then violate the law of entropy. Then accelerate to greater than the speed of light. Then construct a perpetual motion machine. Then find a solution to the equation a^n + b^n = c^n where n is an integer greater than two.

Why don't you know that some things are impossible? Why is this conversation necessary?

"Therefore"? Because you expect to have dominion over the angels, you think that you will be perfect? That's a logical disconnect of the highest order. Doesn't your bible say that you have dominion over the animals now? Where's your "therefore we are perfect" for that?

trifecta1 wrote, "So that 1/3 of Angels that was cast out of Heaven due to rebellion, the Jesus Follower will have a nature higher than that."

Then you think that your god will no longer lust for the worship of those that are free to disobey him, but convert you into obedient robots? If that's what he wanted, why not build us like that and take us all?

You don't make sense. And if you are correct, neither does your god. You describe a capricious, irrational and sadistic god. Look at how many failed souls he made and threw into the torture pit just to have a few percent that would worship him freely.

A third of the angels disagreed. According to myth, they knew your god personally. They knew what heaven had to offer. And they freely chose to leave it. You have zero reason to think that it won't be the same for you: a chance to rebel and be cast out of heaven. Your god seems to prefer that.

trifecta1 wrote, " YHWH will give the Jesus Follower a nature where the Jesus Follower is not a robot, a nature that is higher than the angel, but will have no desire to rebel."

That's a robot.

Besides, your god has no interest in such creatures or he would have made us that way on earth. Your assumption, which you cannot support with scripture, contradicts everything else your bible teaches about your god and what it likes.

Sorry if this makes you uncomfortable.

All things are possible with God, yes i totaly agree. Now as for the individual doing those things and completing them is another story. For some who's faith is strong and has a challenge in life and they accomplish that, then yes it was and is possible. Now a person who is the opposite, meaning weak in faith not able to find the will or strenght and does not reach his goal, then for that person it wasnt possible..
Depends soley on the person for the outcome.
Once again, the scripture says:

Matthew 17:20 - "And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."

According to that, your faith can be quite weak.Just a mustard seed will do. And with that, you are promised that you can move a mountain by speaking to it.

Once again, it amazes me that we have to debate whether that scripture reports the truth or not. I consider faith - the reason you think this way - to be very detrimental to you.

How can this type of thinking be any good for you? I understand how it's good for the people that want you to do things in their interest. If they teach you to ignore common sense and common decency, they can teach you to believe and do almost anything. You might even believe that somebody rose for the dead that now wants you to obey the priests and give them money.

But how does it serve you to think that such things are possible?

1. I would assume the same reason Atheist seek and read websites, books and literature of bias scientis in such, to confirm their belief.
.. scientific theory is based on evidence whereas belief is based on faith. Believers regularly post links to websites claiming absolute proof of God when such evidence doesn't exist because it's impossible to devise a scientific experiment to prove God. That's deceitful. These websites lie for religion and it's not fair to any reader searching for truth ..

.. it seems believers want their personal experience, their walk with God, validated. That's confirmation bias. Everytime I read, " ... blah, blah, blah proves God," I open the link to find more lies. Aren't you just wasting someone's time because, ultimately, your belief is based only on faith and personal experience ??..

Truth is that it is your own words that allows me to know where your head is at on this subject, without sounding "all knowing" you really are like an open book to me, and you know I have a theory about atheist like yourself, I believe that deep down you do know that the existence of a being far greater than man does exist and that it is nagging at you deep down at your core and you don't really have the gumption to face it and take on the vast possibility of God's existence, and so you avoid reading scripture like I posted because you are afraid to face it and open up your mind to how wrong and off keyed you have been for all of your life. Really very sad.
Gee, I've never heard that one before.
