If you dig even deeper, you will see how silly it is to believe that a god impregnated a woman on earth so that the god could get his message through to the people.
If the god would tell every human on earth via telepathy that at a certain time for five minutes he will make all the universe dark and then turn the lights back on ... we would all know that he exists and means business.
But the only people that seem to receive messages from a god or gods don't agree on the messages, and in turn they wrote stupid nonsense in books that caused and to this cause the ignorant humans to fight over who is a favorite of the god or gods.
You will see, but only when you stop being silly and stop believing that you are more special to a god than not only other forms of life, but of other humans.
Ridiculous!!!

God has already turned the lights off, and those in the dark are wandering around in their "progressive" mazes.

Here is the point, God created the Universe to operate in space and time. He can interfere in this operation. But imposing Himself on others is not His Way. Rather learning obedience, to be obedient to love, is our best solution, and that's when the light goes on.

RoSesz:

You are quite right.

It took me quite awhile to understand that I will not change other people's world view, especially on a forum like this.

Religious people can be the most stubborn, when it comes to trying to express their understanding of the Bible.

I try to view my time here as sharing. That is a work of charity. Some accept, others refuse. It is not so important for me to convince anyone. But it is nice to get a confirmation, or for someone to rethink their ideas. And perhaps in sharing we grow together in Christ, in ways we are not meant to understand now....

The answer IS, because they were indoctrinated by Islam and you were indoctrinated by Catholicism.
June:

Why ask the question, if you know the answer?

Islam(calling itself a religion of peace), actually like most other religions is firstly concerned with justice. And the execution of that justice..., such as honor killings.

Christianity is unique(when properly practiced) in that mercy comes before justice. And that is why the world seeking justice/revenge seeks to destroy Christianity.

I was not indoctrinated by Catholicism. In short, I was brought up in a rather tepid religious backround of Methodism, which went to philosophy, then to theosophy. I searched through various religions until I ended in Catholicism.

human being once went by Robert F and now is trolling as this creature.

Robert will tell anybody anything that he thinks that they want to hear. kay warned you about these types of people.

it is easy to see that you are carnal minded and not able to realize the Works of God. that leans on your catholic background.

and unlike robert, I will always speak the truth no matter if you like it or understand it.

My words are true because I don't need to lie to convince you or anyone else.

I am more interested in safeguarding my soul to be as tricky dick Robert and thee other catholics on here

I have a site with his devotionals I think he may even be on the site I gave you under devotionals from many others.
A God moment long time since I heard that.
Don't you love it when He does things like that.
We do serve an Amazing God .
The forever Pursuing Spirit of God never stops gently nodding us in the right direction.
The words [BE STILL AND KNOW "I AM GOD"] says it all doesn't it.

There is a big difference June, the Muslim Allah is not our God.
Are you familiar with the verse.
Matthew 18: 1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

Well for a a preacher you won't accept the apology I made for the argument. And then cal me names..lovely example to the non believers watching.

Will say it again
.wrong to argue on a mystery of God ..I know what I feel is correct and have actually checked with a few non Catholics on another forum so I know I am not losing my faculties. Obviously you think you have some better extra biblical lnowledge ..We do nit agree obviously

But you can continue to argue and insult by yourself cowboy.

My first post today was for reconciliation..accept it or nit brother.

When we are meant to actually KNOW for sure the mysteries of God ..He will tell us..

first I NEVER saw any apology and besides that, no apology is necessary since this is a forum, in which dummies as well as ignorant people participate on. and no it is NOT WRONG to disagree on the WORD of GOD.

the Bible says that we are to use the Bible for reproof and correction.

as far as some "extra bible knowledge", that is a lie. Do I know more about the Bible than you. Probably. I have spent many years atudying His Word, also learning some Hebrew along the Way, as well as learning some Jewish traditions.

you would do well, to keep your trap shut and learn some manners, as well as your typing expertise. you are even worse than I am and that is saying something.

last. you can check with all of the non catholics that you wish, that makes no difference, many people have opinions, THAT DOESNT MAKE THEM RIGHT.

I NEVER ASKED YOU TO DISCUSS ONE THING WITH ME NOR DID I ASK YOU TO ARGUE WITH ME OR AGREE WITH ME. YOU CHOSE TO DO SO.

Both show Messiah to be the legal son of Joseph in the eyes of man's law
HOWEVER
upon Praying on this,subject..I am sorry fir our argument
Fir me it's always been simple.
SHE is His mother.
I had no idea that there was,doubt on THIS.
And it shook me .
I still believe she is...But arguing it is not a worthy occupation.
It will remain one of those mysteries that humans do not agree on I guess.
And not necessary to salvation that we know just how God accomplished the miracle. neuroscIentist that by this miracle the Son of God was born ..suffered and died fir our RANSOM..AND arose again defeating the grave.
The rest about His mother ..And her life we will find out in heaven.
God bless you and keep you and make His,light to Shine on you.
And I am sorry to anyone else who was pulled into this argument
Who is wrong and who is right is Gids business
They are enlightening
Thankfully I am already a Christian.

As if you were the person I had as an example ..Oh well
I have not ..though tempted..insulted you.And won't start now.

You choose to insult and argue in a done argument
I am humble enough to know GOD and His word are all I need ..

Nit a forum or a preacher.

this a backwards insult to me, but I don't care. I have self respect for myself and I know what kind of person that I am. your opinion of means nothing whatsoever to me.

when I gave up my Church that I had Pastored for many years, there were tears on both sides and my SS cried and told me that I was the best Pastor that she ever had.

afterward I left her mom was in the hospital and I went to visit her and she started cry and introduced me as he Pastor to her mate in the other bed . and when I told the other lady that I want anymore, she started cry and said that I always would be.

I attended her funeral a few weeks later, and when her immediate family went up to view her, I went up too.

those are people that I loved and they knew me and loved me.

so what you think means squat to me.

Act 16:25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

Act 16:26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed.

Act 16:27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.

Act 16:28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.

Act 16:29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,

Act 16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

Act 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Act 16:32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.

Act 16:33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.

Act 16:34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.

Commentary by F.G. Meyer

Salvation in the Jail

Act_16:25-40

Some, as we have seen, are converted by the gentle opening of the heart;

others amid the convulsions of the storm.

The first knowledge of salvation may have reached the heart of the jailer through the saving of the possessed girl, Act_16:17.

If only the heart is right with Christ, it can sing in the darkest night; and

the impression of those holy songs must have wrought still further upon the conscience of this rough Roman official, who had treated his prisoners with uncommon severity, Act_16:24.

The inner prison! Perhaps some of our readers have been in it! They have come to an end of themselves and their feet are fastened!

But God has His own way of deliverance and never forsakes His own. Art thou in the stocks today? Then pray and sing praises! Choose, for instance,

Psa_103:1-22. God will be thy very present help.

Thou shalt win thy jailer, and become a monument of GodÂ’s saving mercy.

There is no course for the convicted sinner but to trust in the salvation wrought upon the Cross; or still better, in Him who wrought it.

A similar Verse is found in the events of Resurrection Morning..

Mat 28:2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

JESUS HAS LOOSED THE CHAINS, the bonds of sin...the door is open.

HAVE YOU CHOSEN THE FREEDOM THAT jESUS OFFERED...

OR DO YOU STILL REMAIN IN YOUR PRISON...

THE DOOR OF SALVATION IS OPEN, AND THE LIGHT IS ON...

Joh_8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
