LOL I would agree with that. What do I personally think that verse means? It means exactly what it says. For a better understanding of it one must read what comes before and after. I recommend not going back to the beginning of the chapter but to the beginning of the story. The chapter and verse marks, I am pretty sure you already know, but they are there for a reference point. And in my opinion they can mislead the reader and distract from what was being said. In the book of John it was being discussed by Jesus that he was getting ready to leave them and he told them that they knew where he was going and that they knew the way. Thomas questioned that and said that they didn't know where he was going so how can they know the way. Jesus said unto him, I am the way the truth and the life. No man comes unto the father but by me. Jesus answered where he was going. To the father. And he answered as to the way. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Following this Jesus ties it together with the link between The Father, The son, and The Holy Spirit. All linking to the truth and the life. The way. Jesus. Just some of my thoughts on the matter.
What do you think of non trinitarian Christians?

But no one else can, that's your problem.
Are you the thread police?
Huh?
Thread police? lol.
Are you implying there is no conversations going on- because I am taking the
" floor" away from others?

Are you for real?
Or just mad at me?

I disagree it does not negate our free choice. If my parents put a plate of spaghetti in front of me and a plate of cabbage in front of me. They would know what I would choose. But it would still be up to me to choose. Just because someone says it negates the possibility of free will (though freedom to choose is more accurate) doesn't in any way mean it is true. And in fact it isn't true.
But what if you choose the one that they thought you wouldn't? Would you be punished for it? What happens if you want to have a little of both?

And this is why I admire you, Le_Le. You may actually believe in a god named Jesus, but you are still a decent human being and remain a member of the community of mankind. You won't swarm and sting with the hive, but challenge them, their doctrine, their behavior, their values, and their loyalties. You have refused to let that church decide who you will hate.
People like Skombolis despise you for that and for nothing else. There is nothing unlikeable about you, or to Skombolis, nothing else unlikeable. You are perceived by people like him as being in the same category as me. He tells you that you are a phony - not a real Christian - because you won't swarm with him and attack the "outsiders," which shows us that people like him actually define Christian by behavior rather than professed belief just like I do.
The church is the enemy of the rest of us because it indoctrinates what used to be our fellow human beings into its Borg-like body. In that sense, it is extremely divisive - a poison to society - and should be declaimed continually until it has vanished from view. There is still room for personal religion like yours and G_O_D's in that vision. Neither of you is a thrall for that vile church. Nobody should be. The faithful don't need it to remain faithful to their personal beliefs, and we will all be better off without it.
Thank you.. Again..
I do believe in Jesus Christ.. It is written on my heart.
There's just no way I could ever deny Him..

Yet, it's His followers that take extreme measures to control our world,..To say they hate because
God said this or that.. And so, therefore, they can rule and judge the rest of humankind??
Nope, I do not buy it, it's not what God wants.. And I do believe every single soul will not face
a hell in the afterlife..

Yes, the church is the enemy..always has been..

As usual, great post Ian's..

Oh, I see.
The way you see things is natural but the way others see it (especially if it differs from yours) is not natural.
Huh?
How is it that you can say homosexuality is natural but homophobia is not?
Is hydrophobia natural?

I love it when people don't respond, but talk shit instead.

What exactly does that mean?
