No, Christianity believes in a portion of Jesus. If you were to believe in all of his teachings, then you will believe what Jesus believes, and use what he believes [as you stated - "believes the person of Jesus is our salvation]. What is the difference if I believe in his teachings, or in the person?
BTW - Jesus taught to look within in many more ways than what is written in GoThomas and other non-canonical texts.
<quoted text>
Oh I see, you claim to now know what makes a so-called "Christian", "Christian". And 'faith in Jesus' is the only factor?
- Well, I have to disagree, because there has been many posts - in this forum alone - that shows the many characteristics of being a "Christian" - and this is just one.
- I do have 'faith in Jesus'. Faith that his message of morals, that which you have stated above, is true. If I live by them, and they are true to me, then your classification of me has just changed. We already know that I am part of the Church, in which you seem to reject as well. Now you say I don't believe in Jesus. You are becoming quite judgmental in your supposition.
Bara Dada, "Jesus is ideal and wonderful, but you Christians -- you are not like him."
Source - Jones, E. Stanley. The Christ of the Indian Road, New York: The Abingdon Press,1925.(Page 114)"
One can agree with Jesus, as long as other people don't interfere with his message.
NASL

You ask, "What is the difference if I believe in his teachings, or in the person?"

The difference is this, even the devil believes in the teachings of Jesus. But that has no effect....

For a mere human person to say they believe in Jesus' teachings is to imply that they see Jesus as just a man. And that his teachings are "good", or even "perfect". And this brings a temporal understanding and a temporal peace. But there is no eternal salvation and peace.(This is why you have written before that no one knows what lies beyond death of the body.)

But to believe in Jesus the person, means to accept that Jesus is both God and Man. And that his sacrifice, death and resurrection is what brings eternal salvation and peace.(Those of faith, in Jesus know, because they have touched Jesus. And they have eternal salvation and peace, though they may not understand it temporally.)

It is for this reason, as another example, that Buddhists do not consider Buddha as being God, but merely an "enlightened" man, and follow his teachings. And they still seek eternal salvation(nirvana) rather than having it.

I never got into a discussion with you on the many aspects of being a Christian. In all we have discussed, we never really get past this difference of hearing his sayings, and being a Christian yet. So I have yet to "connect" with your "perceptions".

I GAVE MY LIFE OVER TO GOD ...IN CHRIST WHEN I WAS A VERY SMALL CHILD..
From that time until now he has been MY HEAVENLY FATHER...
Your pitiful attempt to dissuade me to move away from what I have
learned received and enjoyed at His hand over the years is hilarious.
Jesus said
Mat_11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Mat_11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
I have done what he ask....and God has kept His promises..
and done what He said he would do..
~~~
Your post mean nothing to me...you might as well stop exercising your fingers as far as I am concerned...
72 years walk with God has give me lot of wonderful experiences, and no devils from hell can steal them from me.
I have come to far to turn away from my Lord and Savior.
Why do you only believe in a portion of what Jesus taught?

Why don't you believe Jesus?

...not AND...God IS LOVE.
The world presents God as an angry ruler who is just looking for an excuse to destroy us. He's been working on me, and little by little, I've come to see Him in a more favorable light. But finally I've begun to see Him as He really is.
We try to follow lots of 'rules'; try to force ourselves to 'be good'...even when we don''t want to. And sometimes we don't even try; we feel that it is 'too hard', or even that He is demanding too much. Our weakness prevents us from believing that even God could be perfect in love.
Tonight I began to get what I think is the whole picture. It took some time for me to realize that He could love ME! Who am I, that He should love ME? Some more perfect one of whom He could be proud...but not me.
God spoke through the prophet, saying, "I know the thoughts I think toward you," and He says those thoughts are to do us GOOD, not evil. He IS love, thus nothing else can come forth from Him. But that leaves us with questions...how/why could He let bad things happen to us if He loves us?
Well...now I see what is going on. God gives us commands (instructions) for living...NOT because He doesn't want us to enjoy life. After all, HE gave us LIFE; then He gave us His Son. If He gives us His dearest and best, why would He withhold anything else?
The secret is this: He wants us to be healthy and whole, body, mind and spirit. The first reason He instructs us to follow His thoughts, is that the pleasure derived from sin is temporary...and then it brings death. That destroys our health physically, mentally, and spiritually.
But suppose I'm not hurting anyone else, we ask? Because sin not only hurts us, it hurts those around us. Sickness, and divorce and greed, etc. bring pain and suffering, not only to the sinner, but to his/her neighbor. Our family/neighbors suffer greatly if we are sick; shock waves rumble out to hurt everyone when there is a divorce. If we follow His instructions, our lives become a blessing, if we do not, our actions become a curse to others (His other children.)
But what about hell, we ask? Isn't it mean of Him to be so angry with those who fail? If you've just been washed clean, and the old dog shakes his mud and fleas on you...though you 'love' Rover, can't you be a bit upset? God has given us everything necessary for 'life and godliness'. When His gifts are rejected willfully, it is simply proof that that individual is NOT love. Like begets like. It is a principal that works throughout God's world. So if one deliberately chooses to 'live in sin'; wounding all around him, that is proof that that one is NOT His 'seed'.
Now, Rover can't help himself; he doesn't even know how he is offending you...he's just trying to get comfortable...but God has made us able to hear and understand. It takes us a while to understand, but He patiently works with us as one works with a dear child. He FORGIVES us as long as our hearts are willing. Many times He waits on us when our understanding is lacking, and doesn't discard us. He LOVES us, He BELIEVES in us. He KNOWS what we can become, so He is patient.
Patience is PART of love (remember that the next time you are impatient). It takes time to cultivate love in us, so He remains patient. We are weak, and so He is merciful. Mercy is another PART of love. As obedient children we need to show mercy and patience (love) to His other children.
God IS LOVE...
Happy Thanksgiving,

I would add, that when we try to live up to rules of doing good, we get tangled up....

Gal 5:22-23
the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."

There is first of all love, but then a sense of joy, and not of drudgery or a heavy heart in doing God's Will.

uh, yeah, I was talking about the peson tha we had to evict because she was stealing everything that she could. this was not info that wa kept secert fromany poster on here.

so dont act like you uncovered a secret .

and as I have told you time and time again. the TRUTH IS THE PERFECT DEFENSE AGAINST AN ACCUSATION OF SLANDER.

NOT ONLY THAT, YOU DONT EVEN KNOW WHAT IT MEANS JUST LIKE YOU DONT KNOW WHAT THE WORD "curse" means.

Libel is a form of defamation based on material printed or in a visual medium and is akin to slander, which is generally defamation concerning speech or gestures.

since I have never met you,thanks be to God for that, gestures are not applicable in this sense.lol nor have I ever heard you speak.

thankfully intelligence is not your forte.
