If I do, it is a belief that doesn't include this world.<quoted text>
Do you believe in an infallible entity?
...and yet you believe the Bible as "truth".<quoted text>I agree, men can only muster up what there own perception of God is, but for a human to fully comprehend and understand the power and nature of God, is futile.
You sort of contradict your own belief.
I agree. I do disagree the term "Almighty" is applicable, because "His Almightiness" seems to have allowed this world to be in shambles. Now, don't take this as "it's men doing this to our world" - because that is BS, as you have just limited your "Almighty" god.<quoted text>Our minds cant even begin to phathom the power/energy and force of the almighty!!
You should probably read this book, to better understand the many paradoxes associated to any god.
"The Paradox of God and the Science of Omniscience"
Ah yes - this old story is still alive. Only a certain few select men, who just happened to be literate, managed to be able to see and hear "God". Then "He" STOPPED!! No more inspired writers of his word. Do you think the Apostle Thomas was inspired?<quoted text>Those who penned down the Words of the "original text" of the OT and NT, can only descibe what they have seen and what was revealed to them by God.
Strike one on ya - I'm not an Atheist - which makes me different.<quoted text>
And what makes you any different? Just because you are an Atheist, some how gives you the authority to claim you know what you are talking about, and what you say is truth??? That the "knowledge you now claim to have was not giving by "some other" fallible human??? Please, spare me the BS.
- in addition, I'm a member of the so-called "Church", so in essence, what you care to say to me, I am already saved by the loving graces of Jesus and what his teachings have provided for me.
Strike two - I don't bullshit. As you can tell how I post - I'm actually pretty direct and to the point.
"some how gives you the authority to claim you know what you are talking about, and what you say is truth???"
- since I've said this in the past - in which you are new to the forum - I'll say it again for you, "I'm honest enough to admit that I won't know what the supposed 'truth' is, except and only when I die." Can you admit this? You do seem to express some honesty, so I am sure that this wouldn't be that hard for you to express either, huh?
...and yet you don't accept these teachings by Jesus because they only mention Judas handing over Jesus and not resurrection.<quoted text>
As for the last verses of Mark 16:9-20 goes, yes from what i have read and researched, they say it was not done by the hand of Mark, the origanl writer. Now can i honestly explain to you why that is? No. Nonetheless, ther latter part of it reflects the inspired teaching of Jesus, and for "me" that's sufficent along with what God has done for me!
or this one:
I take it you are not one to believe in Jesus fully, huh?
I know a lot about your religious beliefs, based upon what you post.....and that is about it. Now I also know a little bit about you, based upon your responses to me in the above post.<quoted text>
You dont know me, and have "no facts" about me, you assume much..
I believe what the Spirit of God reveals to me to be true, and to not lean on to my own understanding, and those of the opposite. Especially, one who doesnt even believe in God.
To say I know nothing of you, would be a lie. To say I know very little is more truthful, and very telling.
How did you say it? Oh yeah....
"spare me the BS."
Thanks for responding.
