Sorry, but god doesn't exist

The truth is, believing in God takes what most of the people in the world don't want to use and that is their FAITH. They like having faith in what they can see and feel but try to believe in something you can't see or feel. God isn't someone you can "prove" exists with physical evidences. You can only look at physical evidences and see how they point to the fact that there is a God. You can't and won't ever believe God exists unless you are willing to open your eyes and look further than science and into what you can't see but is very real. There is a "world" out there that we can't see or touch yet. But you have to want to understand which only comes through trying to believe. Most people refuse to try. God does exist!  (Oct 13, 2009 | post #12)

ORIGINAL SIN? Are we born sinners or do we become sinners?

No, it isn't a sin to kill a living organism. Otherwise it would be a sin for us to eat anything. We have to harvest plants and eat them. Consider these verses...Genesis 1:29-30 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. Also, consider...Genesis 9:2-3 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. By these verse, we are told that it is not wrong to kill plants or animals. I do understand your point of view though. It isn't a sin to destroy the plant, but is He sinning because He got angry? That is the real question. I still say NO, because anger by itself is not sin, it is how we use that anger that is sin. (Ephesians 4:26) Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Jesus didn't kill a living soul - it was a living organism, but God gave dominion to us all over the plants and animals. We don't however have the right to kill a living soul. People are the only ones who have souls, not plants nor the animals.  (Oct 13, 2009 | post #12)

ORIGINAL SIN? Are we born sinners or do we become sinners?

I respect your views but I still have to say I disagree. John 1:9 is saying that Jesus is the True Light which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. This is not talking about Jesus making every man that is born to be born sinless. It is saying that Jesus is the enlightening every man/woman ever born. Giving them hope of Salvation from their sins. Consider Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: Also, consider Romans 5:19 For as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous. What are your views on these verses? Thanks for chatting with me about your views. Salty  (Oct 13, 2009 | post #11)

ORIGINAL SIN? Are we born sinners or do we become sinners?

Adam and Eve sinned in the beginning - they had only one rule that they had to obey and they chose not to obey God. God wanted to protect them from suffering but they chose not to listen to God. They couldn't go back or take back their bite they were stuck. So, anyone who is born from the seed of their earthly father is birthed with sin because Adam and Eve chose to disobey God in the beginning. You know that is true because a baby can get really, really mad when you don't come when they cry. That is their first bout of anger. Which, given a man/woman who gets that angry ususally attaches hateful words and sometimes threats of some kind of abuse. This happens because we naturally are born sinners. But we can't just rely on that being our only reason we are a sinner. All it takes is for us to tell just one lie or to lust after another person or to steal something big or small, etc...to make us a sinner. We are guilty no matter which way we look at it. But I do believe we are born sinners and we choose to sin each and every day. And it is that reason why Jesus is so special because His Father is God not man. And, God never sinned. Jesus is born through a women but His Father's seed is from God. Our seed that is from our earthly fathers. That is why we are sinners but Jesus never sinned. He was never born a sinner nor did He sin.  (Oct 12, 2009 | post #6)
