How is it unreasonable that I ask you to be honest enough to say that the "10 commandments" will need to be presented first, in order for me to accept your belief as you say it?
How is unreasonable with me asking why you only believe in a part of Jesus, yet say you will say that you "believe Jesus completely"?
You are the one talking out of two sides of your mouth.
But you'll, more than likely (as you have) refuse to see it this way, because I've pointed out those aspects of your belief that strike the core of your fundamentalism of belief.
I'm sorry if I have shown you the essence of your error, but since all these other so-called "half-Christians" won't - because they also CHOOSE to be dishonest with themselves and others about these truths - I have no qualms about doing so and bringing it to the table, because these truths are the same truths that Jesus taught.
Honesty begins within and is then shown outwardly once exhibited.
Move past the words and understand their meanings.
You keep asking me to be honest.
You seem to have a problem with honesty?(soliloquy)Always accussing someone else of being dishonest....(soliloquy)
Somehow you have honesty at the core of enlightenment, IMHO, or a means of being enlightened....(Sounds a bit like getting "clear" in Scientology.)
Here is the problem. One needs a switch to be turned on, in order for the lights to come on....I think the Person of Jesus is the One that makes the circuit complet to turn on the light. Someone can still keep their eyes closed and not see the light....So no matter how much you cry for honesty,(which I think you mean of some kind of denial away from Jesus being the One), my eye is still whole, and open. Complain as you might, I am still and have been honest.
Your observation that there are some half-Christians on here that choose to be dishonest....(Its not my problem of seperating out the sheep and the goats.) We all might be surprised....
