Do you believe in God and why

Are you seriously asking me to name all the different christian sects and cults that have interpreted the bible to suit their own evil purposes? I can certainly name a couple of the more well known like the Branch Davidians and The Peoples Temple.

I already noted my error.

That is entirely your choice. Nobody is forcing you.

Actually you have not explained anything which i didn't know already.

So for you the Bible is bad because some bad people have misinterpreted it.

Ok, got it.

You really do have a way of only taking in what suits you and rejecting all other info. I'll leave this conversation to you and canuckamuck, you both seem to be on the same wavelength.

What other info ?

You can take away the Bible, and all the holy books, and the people will  still be obtuse, and evil in some cases.

But thanks for trying to discuss it.

Please show where he was advising beating. He was only stating that if a trusted slave broke that trust, It was well known that slave was going to get beat. Slavery was a reality in the whole world for almost 1900 years after he made that statement.

By him not condemning it...he is pretty much condoning it. Please read my second paragraph again. He should have advised AGAINST it and he of all people should have known better. What he really should have said was that it is inhumane and against his holy nature to own other humans as property. Just because other a-holes did it...well I guess JC was just another a-hole. Amen!

To be fair you were trying to equate what mauGR1 was saying with Jim Jones and David Koresh. 

He was only explaining that he sees parts of the Bible he agreed with. So far as I know he isn't building a commune at the moment.

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
[38] This is the first and great commandment.
[39] And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
[40] On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

 

So apparently Jesus said that.

I see, that most of you still think Jesus existed as a human. Makes me wonder because there is no proof of his existence. Same as Santa Claus. I think he does exist, but in our minds - not in history.

At least I'm not copying and pasting most of my comments.

Since the Bible is God's word and contains information He wanted us to know, it is far better to quote from the Bible than trying to change what He said to my words.  I'm sure deep down you know God is the Creator of all living creatures, us, and the entire universe.

 

Anyone with a normal IQ who looks at the balance of nature, and has some basic understanding of DNA, can only come to the logical conclusion there has to be a Creator.  Furthermore, to read the Bible and come to the conclusion the Bible is not the word of God, and all of nature along with all living creatures evolved from some glob in a mud puddle billions of years ago, doesn't have the sense God gave a goose.

 

Please don't feel you have to respond with another silly or nonsensical comment to entertain your like minded friends.  It would be far better to quit drinking or ingesting mind altering medication you must be doing, and accept God's gift of salvation along with repentance.  The choice is yours.  You have until you take your last breath to figure this out.

There is overwhelming evidence for the existence of Jesus Christ, both in secular and biblical history. Perhaps the greatest evidence that Jesus did exist is the fact that literally thousands of Christians in the first century AD, including the twelve apostles, were willing to give their lives as martyrs for Jesus Christ. People will die for what they believe to be true, but no one will die for what they know to be a lie.

What a hypocrite you are, anyone who doesn't agree with your silly philosophy has insults heaped on them, years ago you would have been party to burning people at the stake or torturing them into submission, fortunately all you can do now is huff and puff. Bye.

People died for Jim Jones and David Koresh as well, maybe they were both Jesus reincarnated?

Well, i was in Kashmir in 1980, no internet at that time, and a Brahmin (Hindu priest) told me about the (supposed) tomb of Jesus in some place nearby. Some say it could be the tomb of Mary, probably we will never know exactly.

He was adamant that since thousand of years, Christians were doing pilgrimage there, so there must be something true about the story.

 You are free to compare Jesus to Santa Claus, but i think you are completely wrong.

555 Right on! And at least we KNOW these cult leaders actually existed with proof and evidence.
