Yep, why not? "Myself, myself, why have I forsaken me?"
The never-ending absurdity is part of the delusion.
Ever wonder about Jesus' famous lamentation in Matthew 27:46:
About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?"—which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"
Since Jesus is God, what he really must have meant is: "Myself, myself, why have I forsaken me?" Which of course makes absolutely no sense.
That is because as you put it (it) does not make any sense.

You have every right to believe what you want,but let me just interject some real truth of the matter to you,and perhaps you might want to think it through.
Nevertheless,the only way you can fully understand what I tell you is if you go to God in humility and sekk His understanding on the matter.

First of all God is ONE.But the truth of that is He is ONE, with 3 separate Living Beings that share in total: Essence,Substance,Intelligence ,Purpose and Reality.G o d cannot be defined as we humans would view, one person standing at a door, for instance.But 3 Persons standing at a door who are O N E G o d.The Father,Son and Holy Spirit.

God can only be defined from the Scriptures as the GODHEAD,which is the Father,Son and Holy Spirit.Jesus is the fulfillment of the GODHEAD in that He totally represents G o d as the Son INCARNATE.

In other words God is not just the Father,or the Son or the Holy Spirit,but all 3 Divine Persons as ONE,Everlasting God,WHO is the Creator,of all that is seen and unseen.

The mathematical equation for GOD is quite simple ((1x1x1=ONE)).Naturally if you add 1+1+1=3. The uniqueness of God being ONE in 3 Persons includes all that is Willed and purposed as the three will not operate without each other in total harmony,yet the Father (the LORD,YHWH) is sovereign,both the Son and the Holy Spirit are submissive to Him. The Son is of the Essence of the Father,and naturally the Holy Spirit is assumed in both the Father and the Son,in that HE takes on the character,quality,and essence of them both,yet He according to Scripture is our Comforter,teacher,and Guide.

There is much to understand about the GODHEAD or Trinity,and your limited understanding of Jesus in regards to what He said on the Cross,needs on your part to discover the truth about the GODHEAD.

Also the very fact that Jesus IS both the Son of M a n, and the Son of God brings in a n o t h e r aspect to how He on the Cross in the flesh, reacted to His Father who perceived Jesus as S I N.

It is the whole mystery of our faith that Jesus was crucified,was buried and ROSE again. That entails both His humanity and Divinity,your post completely limits that in your understanding.

<quoted text>Wonderful answer here KayMarie.It is the best description to the reason why we worship on Sunday,rather than the Fri(eve)-Sat Sabbath.The whole worship of Jesus or Yeshua is in regards to His Holy Resurrection,which was Sunday Morning.Every 7th Day Adventist should read this posting of yours.Right to the point!
The Jewish Sabbath is shrouded with the legalism of DOING NOTHING.The Resurrection of Christ has all to do with the glorious beginning of a NEW and Everlasting Covenant that takes us from a REST or sleep from all our labors in a body that is tied to this present world.The NEW Body which is glorifed is full of the energy of heaven and kingdom living.
NOT that the Sabbath should be ignored,our Messianic brothers and sisters in Christ have chosen to remain in the Sabbath to continue their Jewishness,yet bringing to their traditional brethren an opportunity to discover the Living Moshiach Yeshua.
But the truth is we are awaiting the fulfilled ONE Man who is both gentile and Jew combined to serve the living God in Christ.Not saying that the Man has a gentile parent and a Jewish Parent,but that the culmination of the gentile in Christ,and the Jew in Christ become O N E entity fulfilling the accomplishment of what Christ has done in His glorified body,to present to the Father the New Creation in Christ Jesus,from sin and death to life.
The Apostle Paul eludes to that in his epistles:Romans through to Hebrews.
The Bible does not teach the earth to be 6000 years old....

Ge 1:1 ¶ In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

When (what date) was the beginning??

Lol. The Lord didn't tell you anything. I love the way people lie on God. God get more lies told on Him than anyone else in the universe and so called Christians are the guilty ones that lie on God everyday.

Everytime you turn around some Christian tell a lie on God talking about God told them this or God told them that. They like to try one upmanship on people and try to make people think that they are closer to God than even the Arch-angels are.

Fool, I guess you are not surprised that Christ observed the Passover either are you? Or were you even aware that Christ observed the Passover as well? Now see if you were any kind of Bible student you would know that Christ too obswerved the Passover and EVERYONE that Calls themselves a Christian is supposed to observe the Passover as well as Christ became our Passover and He commanded us to do so.

Jesus was not..is not God the Father

Even as true worshipers of God recognize that the will or desire of God is superior to their own will or desire, Jesus acknowledged God's will was superior to his own. In acknowledging this, Jesus indicates that he was inferior to God. Thus, at the time just before his death, the Bible says, at Luke 22:41 & 42:

"And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless, not my will, but thine, be done."

At the time of Jesus' resurrection from the dead, Jesus spoke to Mary Magdalene, as described in the Book of John, at chapter 20 and verse 17, which reads:

"Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God."

Inasmuch as Mary was not ascending, but Jesus was, this passage is telling us that Jesus was going to ascend to heaven, where his father already was - the one he describes here as his God.

Every so called Christian here on this forum needs to read the following link/lesson from Exodus 12 for it shows us how to set the date for observing the Passover ( which Christ became our Passover Lamb AND COMMANDED US TO OBSERVE THE DAY IN REMEMBRANCE OF HIM).

http://www.theseason.org/exodus/exodus12.htm

It is a valuable lesson and will show you what a heathen thing is it for Christians to observe the heathen practice of Easter instead of the Passover. Passover according to the date that God set was April 3rd and none of these so called Christians was aware of the day.

THIS FITS HOJO TO A TEE:When Roman Catholics are challenged from the Bible to defend their faith, they are unwilling or unable to defend what they believe and say the priest has the answer and never search the truth out for themselves. Priests and Bishops never get permission to have open public Bible discussions with honest Bible students like ourselves. Imagine a local parish priest publicly defending infant baptism against a Christian who taught the practice contradicted the Bible! It never happens! Forget what the Bible says, just trust the priest!....1 peter 3:15 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in you hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

Jethro I believe strongly that Priests or Preachers should welcome open questioning, dialogue, and debate.The Truth is strong and needs to hide from no one.

I apologize for calling you a fool for you're not a fool but you are definitely Biblically Illiterate about many things and the fact that you didn't seem to be aware that Christ observed the Passover and you called me un-Christian for observing the Passover speaks volumes about you.

Christ observed the Passover which He Himself became. Do you not know the scripture where the Disciples asked Christ where did He want them to prepare for the Passover and Christ gave them instructions on what to do for the preparation?

I don't know what so preacher has been teaching you that it is Un-Christian to observe the Passover but God is gonna deposit his soul in hell for teaching you that false doctrine.

As a gay man I would like to tell the forum something. America seems to be on the road to ruination for they seem to be heading towards approving gay marriage. People, you need to start struggling against this for if America does approve of gay marriage I assure you that this is gonna invite Gods judgement against this country.
