I can't argue with you that there are some very bad (so-called chrisitans) that make the true believer that loves and OBEYS God/Christ look bad . But you cant judge all to be that way,,they are few and far between. If you dont want to believe thats is your choice but why try to destroy his holy word and his followers? Your obviously blessed with intelligence, so what drives you to this? Focus your energy on something that will do some good not destroy. How does a Christian hurt you? How has christ ever hurt you? There are so many other things you could do for ppl or society with your brains then try to destroy a persons faith. In alot of cases that is all they have, when you take that away they have nothing. IS this what you want? I dont think so. USE your intelligence that God gave you for good...not this.
You dont see true christian/believers breaking laws, violent crime, you see them being a good part of society. Guided by the holy word (as they believe in him) Go after what is evil in the world and you will then truly be doing good for all of us. believer and non-believer. theres enough evil out there to challenge, Are you up for that? Christians are a easy target. God bless you have a good day

HIP why dont you finish the verse. You are only giving part of the verse. BoRN again is being born of the spirit, and that is discribed there. Why do use only parts of his word and not all of the verse? Is it to because you lie? You use only parts of his word to decieve ppl of the truth of his word..if you are going to quote him Please name book/chapter/verse so they see all of his word. Not just parts you want them to see for your own interests.
Hello Oneida, The people who are deceived on this thread number about a dozen. There were others, WIP, Micah, Dearth of Couth, but they all died in their sins and are being tortured in the flames at this moment.
There was one who kicked the bucket, Xcentrik by name, but he came back to life and walks among us.

This isn't an off-Broadway play that you are critiquing.

It's the Bible, and the Messiah is answering a seeker of the truth.

who would you rather believe....The worlds version of Logic or the word of God? seems to me God created reason, but it has been twisted by the gift of free thought. Your Logic is based on Science and things of this world,,,,Christians Logic is base on Heavenly truths.(GOD)
If there were a specific god-being to believe in we'd all be in harmony. As it is, there are many christian religions (over 38,000) that all claim their god-being is "the one" correct one.
Which god-being is the correct one? Yours I'd guess?
How convienient for you....

It is our first commision as christians to reconcile man to God...
We do this because we value love and being loved...
To love is noble and to touch lives is a quest to the end!!
I love you although you might not love me back!!
Jesus loved us first so that we can go and love others...
This has nothing to do with education, wealth, status, race what ever it has all to do with being loved...
The Father your Creator wants your heart through His Son Jesus Christ....
And whats wrong with that!! He loves you my brother of another mother!!
Jesus is dead 2000 years ago, thats a fact!

Oh, it is the Bible, but it's definitely an off-Judean production.

Or did you think Jews spoke Greek in Jerusalem?

5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
...because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another,...
8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?

9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.

That's a fact! Jesus was crucified on a Wednesday, 3 days and 3 nights in the tomb.

So many assumptions. I said nothing whatever about all Christians. Christians have the "judging franchise pretty much wrapped up. My only comment here is that you, like most Christians, arrogantly assume some difference between "true believers" (inc. yourself of course), and the "so-called Christians". It's a common thing, we get that a lot here.

Again with the assumptions? You know nothing about how I comport myself in life, much less how I spend my time. How can you assume so much about a person you've never met except for a few minutes in a discussion board? There's that judgmental thing we talked about.

As for your concern for the poor alleged Christians, that's not my concern, is it? Please note the thread title - you did notice that, right? It's likely what brought you here. No one forced your hand, you answered no call, you came here of your own freewill. Perhaps you wanted to learn some real truth, hmmm? No one knows but you.

In any case, for myself, I am in fact aware of the thread title, and I come here in my leisure time to share experiences with other former Christians as to how and why we came to find Christianity, the religion of our common heritage, to be a myth, a hoax, and/or a sham, depending on personal experience. In the meantime, we get to see these "true believers" display the "peace of Jesus" (and a near-total lack of knowledge about their "belief"). Take a look. It has been fascinating and informative. Stick around, if your faith can handle it, and you might learn something your Sunday School teacher never told you. One thing for sure, you will find that most former Christians know the history and doctrine of Christianity far better than most alleged "true believers".

Uh, that's a nice myth, about the "true Christians" not "breaking laws" and whatnot. I think you'll find that any given slice of "believers" suffer the same foibles and faults as the population in general. People is people, why not love for that alone?

Now what kind of loving God would bitch and whine that he really wants to save his failed creation, and then turns right around and BRAGS about "hiding" the truth from those he chooses at his own whim?

Do you guys ever think about your own doctrine?

duststorm: I remember also being taught that it was new wine vs. old wineskins;however, I just looked it up and Matt., Mark, and Luke refer to bottles, and that the new wine broke the old bottles.

I'm sure the old plumber Chuck Colson would get a kick out of
getting the credit for the born again doctrine; but right now he is with Jesus, and there is no awareness of this world for those in the arms of the Savior.
