JEHOVAH/God ...HIMSELF is SPIRIT...

Jesus said..in

Joh_4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

JESUS IS THE EXPRESS IMAGE OF GOD/JEHOVAH IN THE FLESH THAT BORE OUR SINS TO CALVARY'S CROSS.

As the perfect sinless sacrifice FOR OUR SINS...(NO OTHER EXISTING PERSON QUALIFIED..)

IF humans are special, it will be known ONLY after death of physical bodies.

Fighting over who is the most special is a bad habit of humans in religion.

There is no humility in bragging who has the real path to eternal bliss and whose path is false.

Think about it! If you were a creator, would YOU reward right-fighters who clamor for your attention???

I would give such selfish creatures a boot in the ass and tell them to settle down or they will get NOTHING ... which is all they deserve.

I suggest you inform the pope that he a Protestant theologian, and see if he agrees.

WHAT YOU WILL. OR WOULD NOT GIVE... IS NOT WORTH A SNEEZE IN A SNOW STORM...

GOD WILL HAVE THE LAST WORD...CONCERNING YOU...

Gal_6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Okay - maybe I am not understanding you completely.
With you deciding to study and be part of Christianity, by just seeing the Bible, caused you to believe the canon.
What part of your studying triggered the response - "This is so awesome, I will become a Christian"?
Funny thing about what you just stated, actually caused me to leave Christianity. I found too many inconsistent and contradictions within the Bible to make me think it legitimately came from men.
But since you stated it was:
Why do you think fallible men had the ability to define an infallible entity?
See the thing is I didn't just look at the Bible all by itself. I learned about world history, the history of the early Church, the writings of the Church Fathers and various others, and also about archeological discoveries, other religions, etc. The Bible doesn't exist in a vacuum and neither do we.

As for anyone (I presume you mean the writers of the books of the Bible) defining an infallible entity (I presume you mean God), I believe it is by the Holy Spirit that led them to do that.

Speaking of one's definition of God, you should check out this book. They have done studies on how a person's beliefs about God actually affect their body.

"The God Shaped Brain"
by Timothy Jennings, MD

"What you believe about God actually changes your brain. Brain research has found that our thoughts and beliefs affect our physical, mental and spiritual health. Mind and body are interrelated, and we are designed for healthy relationships of love and trust. When we understand God as good and loving, we flourish. Unfortunately, many of us have distorted images of God and mostly think of him in fearful, punitive ways. This leads us into unhealthy patterns of self-defeating behaviors and toxic relationships. But our lives can change when God renews our minds with a truer picture of him. Psychiatrist Tim Jennings unveils how our brains and bodies thrive when we have a healthy understanding of who God is. He dispels common misconceptions about God and shows how different God concepts affect the brain differently. Our brains can adapt, change and rewire with redeemed thinking that frees us from unnecessary pain and suffering. Discover how science and Scripture come together to bring healing and transformation to our lives."

I don't think you are crazy at all. I think you are doing the best you can to relate all you have available to actuality. Much of which is missing, and much has been obfuscated. So now we must muddle through discovery without the knowledge that could have made it easier and faster.
What do you think about the huge increase in ufo sitings this past decade? Have you seen videos from around the world in which you can hear these strange sounds coming from the sky? Do you get the sense that we are on the verge of something big?

Not to keep digging at this, but I did find it interesting, even though it is not related to the topic.
If we were to 'suggest' only about 12% of the land mass is used for agriculture, that would still leave plenty of forest, desert and other regions to be "untouched" - which would also leave those species "untouched".
Again, I find that the term "extinction" would be relative to a certain action that would be global and devasting, as were the past five (last one 65M years ago). Maybe an impact from an extraterrestrial meteor or comet could cause this extinction, but even then, something would survive, as it has in the past.

You think bc there is cancer and its not always cured God doesn't exsist? If you believe in eternal life than you know what happens on earth is irrelavent. You would also know to trust and have faith in God. Jesus was crucified and God let it happen! If the son of God is allowed to suffer what makes you think we are any better? Unfortunatly because Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit from the Tree of knowledge we must all learn different lessons! Some will suffer, others will not, but the point is God worned them to not eat of the tree of knowledge. Now we must learn hense the name, "Tree of knowledge!" But, For God so loved the world he gave his only begotten son so that they may not perish but have ever lasting life! See God does love us all and wants us to be with him! I had a hard time accepting God and his love bc of my own pride,fears, and honestly I'm glad I don't suffer like the Agnostic or Athiest but I did at one time! THANK YOU LORD FOR SHOWING ME THE TRUTH AND LOVING ME ENOUGH TO REVEAL YOUR HOLY SPIRIT! I TRUST YOU AND HAVE FAITH THAT NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS TO ME I WILL WALK WITH YOU IN THE END!
Uhm - okay. Thanks for sharing.

May I ask - how does your post reflect mine - which was a response to yet another poster on extinction?

Why do you call one of Jesus' Apostles "flame job"?
You really aren't very religious, are you?
I figured as much, but you've just put it in concrete.
Thoams was an apostle, but gotommy-boy wasn't written by him, it was written by a mystic/new age flame-job some 500 years later.

God didn't give you cancer, jethro, getting sick is just part of living in a fallen imperfect world. God is not punishing you with cancer. I've had a few friends get cancer and have seen them how they struggled with it. hugs*jethro*hugs

Thank you. If you were not preconditioned in any way as a child, you are in a minority.

So with a clean slate with no preconditioning, which do you consider more probable?

... UFOs' or

<quoted text>if the church does not follow ant pagan traditions,why do you find statues of pagan gods all over Vatican city?
Because they follow doctrine of a pagan cult Jethro.
Jesus when He walked the earth never sat on a throne, never demanded the best seats in the house never demand them to do what he himself wasn't willing to do. never walked around in robes with golden embroidery, never demanded peoples last dollar.
When people were starving to death.
None of the treasures in the vaults under the Vatican belong to the Catholic pagan religion.
If you remember God told His people in the O.T. who were going to war against the pagan enemies that were sacrificing there own children to pagan gods (some that the catholic church renamed)
God told them to take nothing with them no treasures of any kind.
Will if the crusades were fight in the name of God they disobeyed God, they took all their land treasures and life. they killed who did not agree with their doctrine and were killed because they would not bow to the catholic pope of that day.
But may I say Jethro, to God sin is sin, and if God were to unleash His anger against these people because of their sins he would have to unleash it on everyone, because we are all sinners.
People don't realize it but the evil kill the evil and greedy among themselves.
God will have His day Jethro, these evil people, will not get away with what they have doing.
The Bible says many are called but few are chosen, not because God didn't want them it is because they haven't answered the call.
They don't want God, the Holy Spirit pursues us, salvation was never our idea it was God's .
Yet while we were all sinners Jesus died for us.

Then who is it from?
If you say "God" alone - then why don't you believe Edgar Cayce, Nostradamus, or any other "seer" in the 20th or 21st centuries?
You do believe what the bible says, right? If you do, then you must also accept these prophets.
