Words are cheap and lies easily told...and even more easily believed by the desperate and ignorant masses.
Christianity is very much to blame for this; the notion that salvation is free and may be attained by the idlest, the dullest, the stupidest is understandably very popular with persons who may be so described.

He surveyed His kingdom from a cross.

There was no crown for Him of silver or of gold
There was no diadem for Him to hold.
But blood adorned His brow,
And proud its stain He bore,
And sinners gave to Him the crown He wore.

CHORUS
A rugged cross became His throne
His kingdom was in hearts alone
He wrote His love in crimson red
And wore the thorns upon His head.

He did not reign upon a throne of ivory
But died upon the cross of Calvary.
For sinners there He counted all He owned but loss
And He surveyed His kingdom from a cross.

CHORUS
A rugged cross became His throne
His kingdom was in hearts alone
He wrote His love in crimson red
And wore the thorns upon His head.

No purple robe He wore,
His bleeding wounds to hide
But stripes upon His back He wore with pride.
And from the wounds there flowed a crimson,
cleansing stream
That was a cover for the soul unclean

CHORUS
A rugged cross became His throne
His kingdom was in hearts alone
He wrote His love in crimson red
And wore the thorns upon His head.

Heb 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

Heb 10:27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

Heb 10:28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:

Heb 10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

Heb 10:30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

Heb 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Heb 10:32 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;

Michael says..........
No one knows with any certainty that the names associated with the 4 gospels were the actual men who wrote them. The gospels were written decades after this man supposedly died. Why no contemporary writings about a god/man who performed miracles for thousands and witnessed by thousands more? We have nothing.
Philo was probably the greatest jewish philosopher during the time Jesus supposedly lived. Philo wrote many manuscripts about Jewish life and jewish individuals that were news worthy. Not one word ever mentioned in any of Philo's manuscripts of a man named Jesus.
The ONLY writings about Jesus came decades or centuries after he supposedly died. That's troubling!
.... Mark 2:1-12, where the crowd coming to see Jesus is SO GREAT!, that a paralytic has to be lowered through the roof of a building Jesus is in, in order for Jesus to see him. Elsewhere Mark tells us that the crowds that Jesus drew were so overflowing that he has to lecture from a boat on the Sea of Galilee. When Jesus travels from Bethany to Jerusalem, throngs of people line the roads to welcome him. Mark also tells us of how Jesus performed miracles before thousands: on two different occasions Jesus feeds thousands through miracles (see for example, Mark 8:1).
......miraculous virgin birth.....not one contemporary mention by anyone in the entire mediteranean.
......dozens of miracles for thousands......no one notices.
.....crucifixion.......no one writes anything.
.....zombies coming out of their graves........nope nothing!
....no one from his era thought these events important enough to write something at all!
Why all the writings years after he dies? Maybe because the story could be spun anyone way they want because dead man tell no tales.
...my opinion.
The seat of their Church was in Jerusalem..which burned to tell ground along EITH it's,residents..scrolls ..And the temple in AD 70

Can you imagine if the seat of our government was destroyed . Before copy machines and the internet ...AND PRINTING PRESSES ..

Many went out to spread the word .

Of course Mary was not going around the countryside or even in Nazareth

Telling people about her Son when He was,Child ..his life
was in Danger .

He was the true Heir of David ...She may have not known all the facts by she knew where He came from

http://www.heartofisrael.net/chazak/articles/...

SO many answers to your questions ..THEY DID NOT TWEET EVETY BIT OF THEIR BUSINESS..

there is,an account of Pilate kings ..includibg Jesus,Crucifuxion by Josephus .....again the Jews,held Jerusalem..until it was destroyed ..
All things Roman and Jewish destroyed,.

How much writing lost forever ..

The belief that latching on to a certain theology makes one wise ... is what dumbed down the people of the world to in turn place complete FAITH in the words of the cunning theologians.

Been there ... done that!

Now I realize that cunning people in religion offer wisdom as a lure to entice those who are greedy and needy ... into the cults.

I never believed that I was special to a god ... but for believing in the existence of a god, I did believe I was WISE, and others who wouldn't see it my way were dumb.

Now, I believe that, by what we don't KNOW, we are ALL dumb.

You are promoting the dogmas put forth by Catholics, that ultimately morphed twisted into Protestantism.

Judaism doesn't believe that Jesus IS a messiah.

I don't read your favored scriptures, much less believe any of it is based on truth.

From my perception religion is ALL mythical bunk.

You make it plain that you are certain your "SELF" is aligned to a kingdom of a perfect god.
However, I suggest that a god that allows suffering of all its creatures (if it exists) has no character of which to BE proud. It ought to hang its invisible head in shame.
Good point June. I'll make a note of this, as it is a viable factor in belief.

I've already taken the belief that no god has any control over this world. You seem to solidify it further.

Cheers.

Tell me the story of Jesus,

Tell me the story of Jesus,
Write on my heart every word;
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard.
Tell how the angels in chorus,
Sang as they welcomed His birth,
“Glory to God in the highest!
Peace and good tidings to earth.”

Refrain:
Tell me the story of Jesus,
Write on my heart every word;
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard.

Fasting alone in the desert,
Tell of the days that are past,
How for our sins He was tempted,
Yet was triumphant at last.
Tell of the years of His labor,
Tell of the sorrow He bore;
He was despised and afflicted,
Homeless, rejected and poor.

Refrain:
Tell me the story of Jesus,
Write on my heart every word;
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard.

Tell of the cross where they nailed Him,
Writhing in anguish and pain;
Tell of the grave where they laid Him,
Tell how He liveth again.
Love in that story so tender,
Clearer than ever I see;
Stay, let me weep while you whisper,
“Love paid the ransom for me.”

Refrain:
Tell me the story of Jesus,
Write on my heart every word;
Tell me the story most precious,
Sweetest that ever was heard.

Hank, what happens to someone who comes to Christ on a hospital bed and are not baptized before they pass?
Jesus said believe AND be baptized. People are baptized on thier death bed all the time. Why would a person seeking Christ NOT ask for baptism? Who would preach Christ and NOT baptism?

Romans 1:20-32
King James Version (KJV)

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
