Questions on Faith

Recommended Posts

Salvation through Jesus means he is a bridge between us and God, since in the Old Testament you must go through a priest, and the sacrifice/offerings etc. Jesus is the sacrifice for all our sins and through him we receive salvation from God.

 

'Complete faith in God' is now you interpret it, its a lot different than blind believing.

 

Yes you do have to confess. This is one important thing of Christianity, and if that was not one thing you did when you came into Christ, well, then you are not really in Christ.

The Holy Spirit will guide you, and by sin, it is obvious what is and what not :P What is sinning and what is not, It is built in within us, believe it or not.

Sin will trap you like I earlier stated. If you cannot break free of it without great effort (lying, mausturbation, porn, etc, etc..) it's a sin, and you have a conscience (Holy Spirit live inside of you)

 

Omg Ty, get this bible

Fictional? How is it fictional. Da Vinci code is just as real as the person himself. That's why you see the "The following content may upset some viewers" in the beginning.

Are you being serious WinMacLin? Who would take the time to write something that long if it was fictional, and why is everything in it relevant. "The DaVinci Code" is fictional cause none of that stuff is in the bible. Read 1 John about false.. err things.

The Da Vinci code isn't fictional. It describes Da Vinci's interpretation.

 

Lets do this Alex, I read your recommended bible, and you read the Gnostic gospels :P I will assure you, if you read it with an open mind your view on Christ will forever be changed.

lol The DaVinci Code is entertainment I already know it is fiction as I said above.

 

The Bible I'm afraid is also fiction. It teaches people moral values much like a Children's book teaches children life lessons.

 

It is nothing more then that. For people with no entertainment and limited scholars there was nothing better to do but trade glorious stories some bright people simply decided to commit them to paper. A man that can walk on water? A very good story but nothing more.

 

Besides if they didn't write the book what would they do? They had nothing else if they had the ability to write what better but to whittle away your days writing a book as many people do today.

I'm sorry but I refuse to believe that mainly because it was written over thousands of years, and it all makes sense and it's super relevant to everything.

A newspaper is "super relevant" to everything and that was made yesterday morning.

 

Even "Gods people" that worship the Bible say it is a simple story book alex. Half of the material inside it contradicts the other half. Some of it doesn't even make sense.

Not true. And obviously, because the newspaper was written the day after. the bible is super relevant to whats going on now even tho it was written thousands of years ago .. and if u actually took the time to read the bible you would notice that it all makes sense. just put some time into it and i think you'll see. these "gods people" you talk about aren't God's people then. believing is out of man's free will so u can do whatever u want.

 

Edit

 

plus, almost all the stuff in the bible can be found in historic archives or Israel now

Being not able to understand and fictional are completely different things. You can believe it from your perspective that it may be fictional, but it does not mean to have implicating your ideas on others to force it into what you believe.

 

The Da Vinci code is fictional, it says right on the cover that it is a novel.

 

There are no 'priests' in regards to non-Roman Catholic Christianity. Catholicism does not follow the Bible entirely anyway.

Yeah, I don't think its that controversial after all. It's just certain people that believes in it when it CLEARLY states "a novel" on the cover lol :D

No no, I'm not talking about the hollywood "Da vinci code". I'm talking about the documentary series. That's not fictional, there are "clues" speculated from Da vinci's works. Interpretations are just as real as the bible.

 

It says "the evidence is real", we're not talking about the same da vinci code.

Ok, well if those "clues" aren't in the Bible, then they aren't real. You clear on that?

I'm sorry you're misinformed. If the Bible doesn't mention anything about a prince named Buddha, or a prohet named Mohammed, are they not real?

It's understandable, that christians are willingly ignorant of the Da vinci code. But if you watch the whole series, you'll know that there are some clever scientists who brought up clues within Mona Lisa that are pretty convincing, if you have the open mind.

 

The series, is not fictional.
