Here is some really good advice for you regards your false accusation that I edited my posts...the record I showed you of my posts are proof that cannot be denied...it never happened...

Always remember your kid's name. Always remember where you put your kid. Don't let your kids drive until their feet can reach the pedals. Use the right size diapers... for yourself. And, when in doubt, make funny faces.

All of you were trying to impress upon each other that you were committed ONLY to your own religious systems of belief.
That is why religion is incapable of creating any semblance of peace.
I take it June you skipped the verse of Scripture where Jesus states,He did not come to flatter men but to bring a sword,to set at variance even a mother-in-law with her daughter-in-law. Meaning basically that His message of the Cross W I L L offend,and many will not be able to embrace His truth,thus they will be abrasive to those who do accept Christ.

The preaching of the Cross and the Gospel is not really for the faint of heart,it is tumultuous.WHY,because Jesus converts the heart of men,He challenges the free will of human beings,in regards to SIN and its destruction,and offers the believer not to remain in their sin.

Islam and the Gospel of Christ are at odds,because basically the Muslims are taught to submit to an authoritarian view of God,that leaves out the real Compassion of what God is capable of being to all who approach Him. Where as in Christ,the death on the Cross along with the Resurrection of Christ brings humans face to face with the Father,seeing Him who has ABUNDANT Mercy,not riddled with a volume of dos and don'ts,but a compassionate exchange of a miserable life of sin,for a lively life in Christ free from the bondage of sin. The Holy Spirit is sent to each individual to aid in their progress of living for Christ on earth.There is no teaching in Islam that compares to the Christian faith in its total equipping of the believer to live for God,in Christ.

Religion as held by the control of MEN,and reliant only on human endurance, causes a great deal of PRIDE for ones particular organization. In other words the political stronghold of religion as seen in many institutions, is what you are seeing as the adversarial battles between factions and organizations. Christ offers a release from the treadmill of religious practices,which humans so much cling to to PROVE their devotion to God. In Christ we no longer have to please God through rituals,or practices,repetitious prayers and so on.The Father's pleasure is in His Son,and we inherit that Love the Father has for His Son,only of course when we embrace the Son and forsake the former dead rituals of religion that are fortified by political strongholds.

Marge flatters you, because she relates to what you post.
To me, you are simply another preacher that allowed male-created literature to go to your ego and in turn spew out the idea that you know universal truth and others that disagree with you are false prophets.
I really cannot relate to what you suppose in this post June.I do not believe that I am above anyone in belief.It is through much suffering and personal experiences that I have come to this place. It has not been easy,nor is it some pride thing with being male. As for people disagreeing with me,have at it June.You don't agree with me ever,so what's new? Yet I still believe that it is possible for me to share with you,even though you always show your disdain for what I post. I could be so disgruntled and frustrated being on this thread at all,as few and far in between ever agree with me anyway. Marge and RoSeze are both believers,they love the Lord,and share much of the same I have always shared on this thread myself. The fact that they agree with me forms a bond,but there is no pride to be boasting over.

I do not feel any source of excitement in being always on the wrong end of personal views.Even some of the most ardent Bible oriented Christians here have shared that they do not agree with me,and I at times don't agree with them either.

So as far as having Universal truth at my fingertips,i would venture to say that often I am alone in what I believe to be the full truth. Everybody has a view of or rather a perspective on living their faith as you can see here daily. You should know that,as one who claims more than any of us holds the key to success and understanding,being independent of religion,and most of independent from God.

have missed your posts,.
If God does,NOT force us to believe and choose Him..how,vain ANY religion to force belief in itself supposedly in God's name .
I agree on the,Jews cleansing the land God gave them from those who sacrificed children.
I think of Isaac in this, Abraham had FAITH in GODS,promise that he would have many descendants through Isaac , yet he tied him to the altar .....FOREVER MEMORIALIZING THAT GOD DOES,NOT WISH CHILDREN TO BE SACRIFICED .....
No human, save Jesus, could qualify as a perfect offering and HE willingly gave Himself , IN OUR PLACE . The,only perfect lamb slain for the sins,of man..
How,much simpler and less painful, if HE FORCED us,into subjugation..HE DOES NOT not should ANY RELIGION...
I did not want to go back beyond a couple of pages to see what is posted.You have like faith as I do,and it will be always contested RoSesz, Not because we have it all together,but because many do not realize that the supernatural is beyond them,and as long as they cling to only what is in their circumference,they will not be open to the supernatural.It is like anything humans do on a daily basis.If one wants to join the YMCA for an exercise program,but never go to the facility near them to sign up,they will not KNOW what it is like to exercise on a routine basis,and to look and feel better in the long run. And thus, complaints will build up in their conscience,and even guilt,because they never followed through.

Following Christ is literally taking a risk. What happens to many believers is that they stop as soon as they are confronted by the Supernatural,and they would rather just believe in the articles of faith,rather than to experience them in their lives.

Thank you for your post,I am going to work shortly.Beautiful day here in my city! Don't ever let what is said on these posts to interfere with your relationship with the Lord!

It is VERY clear when gnosticism began NASL.
It began the very moment it became known to the human race that there are other entities out there in the universe which we mere humans are unable to interact with on a regular daily basis due to space/time constraints of one form or another.
The gnostics of ancient human packs all over the world predate any and all Christian references to gnosticism. Gnosticism is most certainly not a Christian monopoly of belief.
I can agree to most of your post....but on the notion of when the belief started....one could say Plato used symbolism to express his viewpoint - which can be in some ways, very similar to Gnosticism.

But an actual date - I agree it began well before Christianity came on the block. I just don't know when.

Tobias Churton's book - "Gnostic Philosophy: From Ancient Persia to Modern Times" - he posits that the Orient was an influence to the Persian beliefs from the gitgo. He also posits that the idea of a "redeemed-redeemer" is the catalyst for this religion as well as others.

<quoted text>All practitioners of New Age have their reward in what they find out in realms beyond themselves.But as a believer in Yeshua(Jesus),I choose His way that warns me not to take part in any form of occult practice,eckankar, hypnosis,spirit travel,necromancy and the like. Christ does not need to join with time travelers as He sits on the right hand of His Father,and all is subject to Him. He does not want His people to partake in such practices as Mind-control,and so on. All of which is subject to the spirits of the fallen angels that followed Lucifer,and forsook the ONLY ONE and true God. It is the JOY of the LORD that is the strength of the believer,not dabbling in religious rites of practices that promote the Occult.
Then you still don't have the capacity to believe in all of what he taught, thus you lack - per your own account - "faith in a complete Jesus".

Why don't you believe in all of what Jesus taught? Do you think men were more knowledgeable about what Jesus taught - than Jesus himself?

Please post where "God" has specifically stated which texts are of "His inspiration" and which are not, in order to know you are only reading what "God" presented?

Please be specific and honest in your response.

Very good post. I didn't read the link, but God created time ITSELF for us...he is outside or inside of time if He chooses
. Why would Jesus even need time travellers ?
I fear it is likely that those who let themselves dabble in these things,May very well be playing with fire.and bad spirit s,as you say ..these psychics today and the so called old gods the pagans,worshipped, May very well be as those spirits,banished by Jesus,Christ or even more powerful ones. But they are NOT OF GOD ..JESUS,IS,LORD ..
Why do you think you know the mind of "God"? When it is very clear you don't.

- "but God created time ITSELF for us..." - unproven
- "he is outside or inside of time if He chooses" - unproven
- "But they are NOT OF GOD" - if your "God" created everything - then "God" also created those beings.

First suggestion for you to abide by - don't think you know the mind of "God".

You don't. And an honest person would admit this. Your posts shows you think you do know these things.

How 'bout being a bit more honest and admit that you don't.

Catholics believe in a live and let live doctrine. God bless all you good Christians out there and don't forget to spin the wheel, throw dice, play some cards, have a beer and watch the kids have fun at the next picnic. It all goes to a good cause. Peace.

.
Then why do you keep preaching at others that you KNOW what was meant by the teachings of Jesus, while they are still TOO dumb TO know?

To make such a BOLD statement, you MUST believe you are aligned to absolute knowledge that came BEFORE other groups such as the Catholics and Protestants messed with the REAL Christianity.

And your avatar is the clincher. WOW! Heavy stuff! "New Age Spiritual Leader."

... aligned to the OLD AGE knowledge-able spiritual leader.

According to you, there's nothing dumb ABOUT you.

However, I suggest others disagree.

To those in their favorite religious cults, the word "scripture" denotes HOLY messages sent and received intact from the spirit realm to earthlings.

But in its shortened form, the word script is used in Hollywood to create drama.

I suggest that religion is also based on imaginary drama.

Note the word "productions" in the follower "liturgy."

The Buddhist Scriptures

This section is an overview of the Buddhist Scriptures by Ven. Sayadaw U Sobhana, with an article on "Collecting the Tipitaka" which is the history of the first rehearsal of the Tipitaka. Included is an explanation of the Tibetan Canon and the Chinese Tripitaka which is composed mainly of Mahayana scriptures of the second 500 years, yet translations were not restricted to scriptures of this middle period. The Chinese Tripitaka also possesses a wealth of works of early Buddhism as a good portion of the later productions.

Partly correct .
While I don't know how or why God does what He does...you are correct..by Faith we know

He is the Creator , He being the Creator of everything has no need of time...he created all dimensions . The earth rotates passing time , he created all of it .

So yes He did create time..and existed BEFORE TIME .. my assumption is that He being all powerful can move about it , HIS CREATION, as He wishes ...
