I tend to agree with you because religion is nothing more than a set of rules put in place that you have to follow in order to reach God. True Christianity is not a religion but a relationship with a God that loves you so much that He died so that you could live. It is all about what He did not what you do and that kind of takes the arguing from my side away. I do not argue about it anymore because everyone is entitled to believe what they believe.

See what I mean, it’s just all nonsensical jibberish.

hmm. truth… Even Jesus did not say in any place in the bible that he has come to start Christianity, but He did say He is the way(not one of the ways), the truth, and the life. He has come to bring us back to God.
also, it is true that everyone is entitle to believe anything, but i choose to believe the what God says in His word.

Not to give away the ending but nearly every religion claims that THEIR way is the only way. So why do you choose to believe Christianity over all of the others?

hmm….Jesus is not to be compared with any body. I believe in Jesus not Christianity. And if the question is why did i choose to believe Jesus over all of the others?
Because He chose us in Himself, paying for our sins which nobody has done. He was the atoning sacrifice for our sins. And eternally, no one could come to God but Through him. Nothing selfish in His death. All was for us.

Okay you’re not a Christian but you believe in Jesus, if that even makes sense. But there are still so many problems. Just for starters, there is no reason to think that the biblical Jesus ever lived at all, or was the son of a god (rather than a sexually promiscuous Jewish girl with a grand imagination).

What’s more there are problems with the whole “died for our sins” assertion. First is it makes no sense. For example if someone killed your Mother and I, as someone completely innocent of the crime, volunteered to accept the death penalty on behalf of the person who actually did it, would you accept that and let the real killer walk free?

On top of that, what if I secretly knew that my few days of suffering were guaranteed to be followed by an eternity living as a GOD, doesn’t that largely mitigate the impact of my “sacrifice”? Heck, I might even accept a few weeks of pain if I was guaranteed to be a GOD for eternity, because that’s a damn sweet deal!

LoL…I believe in Jesus and i am a Christian. He is the Son of God i.e God incarnate (the creator of all things). this is not a fallacy. it is a reality. No offence, I want to believe there are many things you don’t know which you think you do. redemption plan is not given to the realm of the senses.
I have seen the lame walk, the deaf ears, the blind sees and recently a mad woman was delivered on the street by the power in the name of this same Jesus. All these He did through me and my folks. Bye

You’ll forgive me if I don’t believe the “miracles” of which you claim. But to show you I’m open minded AND generous, if you or anyone you know can heal the sick or perform any other divine miracles then you are entitled to $1 million dollars cash money. No tricks, no joke. And if you don’t need the money you can donate it to the charity of your choice (it would be the Christian thing to do).

Just go to http://www.randi.org/site/index.php/1m-challenge.html. And in case you don’t feel like visiting the site here are the basics:

“At JREF, we offer a one-million-dollar prize to anyone who can show, under proper observing conditions, evidence of any paranormal, supernatural, or occult power or event. The JREF does not involve itself in the testing procedure, other than helping to design the protocol and approving the conditions under which a test will take place. All tests are designed with the participation and approval of the applicant. In most cases, the applicant will be asked to perform a relatively simple preliminary test of the claim, which if successful, will be followed by the formal test. Preliminary tests are usually conducted by associates of the JREF at the site where the applicant lives. Upon success in the preliminary testing process, the “applicant” becomes a “claimant.”

To date, no one has passed the preliminary tests.”

If god is all-powerful, couldn’t he have just given us a pass? I mean, I didn’t even know Adam, yet I’m still on the hook for it? I thought he was supposed to be smarter than us.

Fair point. I honestly don’t know what Christians are talking about when they tell me God is a forgiving god. Really? I mean he’s willing to torture every human who has ever and will ever live because the first two people he created stole a piece of fruit from a tree. Okay, some will say that it wasn’t about the apple per se’ but it was because they disobeyed God and because it gave them the knowledge of good and evil?

I don’t even know why he’s mad because 1) Every kids disobeys their father at some point or another, it’s what kids do. 2) I WANT my kids to know the difference between good and bad 2) he’s God…he could easily erase that knowledge or, if he’s really pissed, just kill Adam and Eve off, get rid of the tree and make Adam and Eve 2.0 from scratch. Why punish everyone else for eternity because of what amounts to petty theft?
