Islam is the fastest-growing religion in England and Wales, according to new census data that the British government says "describes the defining characteristics of the population, who we are, how we live and what we do."

The census data shows that the number of Christians in England and Wales declined by 11%(4.1 million) during the past decade, from 37.3 million in 2001 to 33.2 million in 2011.

During the same period, the Muslim population in England and Wales increased by 80%(1.2 million), from 1.5 million in 2001 to 2.7 million in 2011, making it the second-largest religion in Britain.

So - based upon your post above - "I do not have a religion,I have a relationship with the Triune God,Father,Son and Holy Spirit.There is no speculation on my part that they truly exist." - you accept all texts that have teachings by Jesus included in them, right?
A yes or no answer will suffice.

"But it is not a yes or no answer to give you the satisfaction of promoting those gnostic writings,which I personally cannot endorse them."

Of course you can't, and you know the truth of the matter, but can't even be honest enough to admit it.

Like I said, you are a follower of men, because they have chosen a belief for you.

I can see why the story of Jesus tries so hard to show how he tried to tell the Jewish people the same thing.

Look what they did to him. Then notice how he had the last word as well - "For they know not what they do."

Honesty is what Jesus taught, but yet it is a treasure that no one seeks.

The number of people who say they have no religious affiliation jumped by 83%, from 7.7 million in 2001 to 14.4 million in 2011. In proportional terms, this would imply that one-quarter of people in England and Wales now identify as being non-religious.

I suggest that people who join the more strict religion of Islam will be sorry if Islam becomes a theocracy.

Hitler also promised a better society, but a better society to Hitler simply meant that those he didn't like were put to death.

I prefer a messy society, as it indicates that even though people are a mess, they are still allowed to live without the government putting them to death.

People in religion often see the outsiders as evil.

Islam is a prime example of how far theologians will go to exterminate what they perceive is evil in other people.

Before the laws stopped the Christians from burning others at the stake, they were of the same mindset as are the Muslims that today believe they MUST kill evil people in order to appease the god.

Maybe some day the Christians will have to unite together against the forces of Islam.

It will probably be the only way that Protestants and Catholics get along. They will at last have an enemy on which they can both focus and that will draw them together as a united fighting force against the evils of Islam.

Humans preach peace but they don't mean it. It's just stuff they learned to regurgitate from the books that they were taught are HOLY.

Jesus never spoke to any of "those churches", for his teachings weren't really taking off, until well over 50 years past his death.

From 33 - 50 CE, it was still forming and probably consisted of less than 500 followers if that. Since we really don't know the numbers of followers of Jesus at this time, so we may speculate with any number if you wish.
- but besides that point, followers of Jesus preached to these 'churches'.

Please do not construe the information. If you think you are smart enough to convey something, please do it correctly.

You are one of the reasons why so many people have fallen under the guise of Christianity.

You wouldn't know what the pearls look like if it at your feet, though I have tried.

To find the pearls in life requires to shed the arrogance and prestigious make-up that men put on.

You seem to have a problem doing so.

BTW - the pearl is always there for the taking - you just can't let yourself get in the way of retrieving it.

You are wrong again, GiF.

I'm not the one who dismisses Jesus. You are.

I'm not the one who allows men to choose for me, what "God's" inspiration is limited to. But you are.

Have you ever really examined yourself as your "Paul" requires?

No I haven't. Jesus doesn't bring any eternal death, that would be a function of the material world we live in. We all are going to die. BTW - since you think this, then y ou don't understand what Jesus taught, because he supposedly taught how we transcend to an eternal 'life'.

Where are you getting that from? Oh yeah - men.

You shouldn't be so negative. But that is an issue Christianity wants to instill upon you.
- Shoot - continue to be negative, you will always want to look up to someone...else for help. Jesus doesn't like people who can't help themselves.

All out of context.....but you already knew that, because you are out to deceive others.

Winning souls that are facing eternal damnation IN HELL..

is of greater importance than your contentions.

Wisdom and meekness.
.
Men are naturally fond of a reputation for superior understanding and wisdom.

Here, then, is the best way to show the real possession of such superiority;

not by a forward self-consequence

—a self-commendatory, and over-eager desire to dictate to others from the teacher’s chair;

not by a magisterial dogmatism of manner;

not by a lofty and supercilious contempt of other men and their views and modes of instruction;

not by a keen, contentious, overbearing zeal.

No; let the man of “knowledge” and “wisdom”

show his possession of these attributes—

acquaintance with truth, and

sound discretion to direct to the right use of it—

by keeping his station, and studying to adorn it.

Let him, first of all,maintain

“a good conversation”

—or course of conduct,

private and public—

a conversation upright and holy, in full harmony with the genuine influence of Divine truth, and

“let Him show, out of such a conversation, his works”—

the practical results of his knowledge and professed faith.

These “works” consisted in

active conformity to the duties required by Divine precept, in all the various relations of life, more private or more public. And these “works” were to be shown “with meekness of wisdom”—that is, with the meekness by which genuine wisdom is ever distinguished.

Vanity is one of the marks of a weak mind.

Humility and gentleness are the invariable associates of true wisdom.

The two were united, in their respective fulness of perfection,

in the blessed Jesus.

Let the man, then,

who would have a character for true wisdom manifest

in his entire deportment

“the meekness and gentleness of Christ.”(H. Wardlaw, D. D.)
