its still a rather impossible leap... going from not even believing he returned to suddenly claiming he is God, when no one before that moment even thought about it
That is the style of the writer of the Gospel of John, to have such proclamations come out of other people's mouths.

You are right! The bible never teaches that Jesus is God. It does call him mighty God but we also know there is an Almighty God that is separate from Jesus.
I am literature student also working as writer at essay writing company mainly concentrated on biology essay writing service. Theology and religion is one our subject so we have a lot to study and research about history of Jesus and Christianity. recently we had a debate on this topic, is Jesus God!

. . . It does call him mighty God . . .
I discussed that in two posts on this thread.
The Jewish translation of Isaiah 9:6, the "to us a child is born" verse, is different from a Christian Bible translation of the same verse, to where it switches from the son, to God, in the Jewish, and continues on as if it is still talking about the son, in the Christian version.

John 6
Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Revelation 15
Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee

Hebrews1
..hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

8
Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; a minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man..

7
but this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

Philippians 2
but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Romans 10
But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Luke 5
Who can forgive sins, but God alone?

Nenothtu: Emotions are emotions, and all have their place if properly managed - none are "negative" of themselves, they just "are". Any "negativity" associated with them is manufactured, and negativity can be and is associated with any of them. You classify "love" as "positive", yet I have seen it frequently used as a weapon, which I would classify as "negative".

I can't see that there ARE any "negative" or "positive" emotions, but I CAN see both negative and positive uses for every single one of them.



Oh! Nenothtu, you do have a good understanding in regards to human nature. The emotions of Anger and love of course can be used in both a destructive and constructive way. Negative and positive in regards to the emotions after all is only a way to describe something, just as we use the terms good and bad, and we shouldn’t get too tied up in them. But I can see now how I didn’t explain myself too well, so here goes. My knowledge comes from my training in Ayurvedic Medicine which is over 5,000 years old.



Nenothtu: Doubtlessly so classified by those who have been too often on the receiving end of an anger they don't know how to cope with, and therefore must classify it as a "disease of the mind" in order to try and demonize it, which is their only defense. Perhaps their time might be better used in finding out WHY they inspire such anger, rather than running away from it.

“Disease of the Mind” nearly everything comes from the mind. Yes “mind made diseases”. Ayurveda states that 85% of all diseases start in the mind before it filters through to the body.

These “diseases of the mind” is not something somebody made up, but has been known for centuries by various saints and Holy Men of the east such as Guru Nanak and Guru Arjuna, in those days there was time for much reflection into the mysteries of life, so these ancient Yogis made a study of the mind. In Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda these different emotions are a step down from the mind and senses and are each assigned to a body part or organ.

These five “diseases of the mind” affecting mankind, are also known as the five thieves or perversions of mind such as Greed, Lust, Anger, Attachment and Pride (or Ego) as the five major weaknesses of the human personality at variance with its spiritual essence, and are know as "thieves" because they steal a persons common sense.There are also five antidotes for these destructive emotions. Sikhism and Buddhism for instance also speak of these five coverings (pañca-āvaraṇa, 五蓋). One’s true mind is covered up by (1) greed, (2) anger, (3) stupor, (4) restlessness, and (5) doubt. I hope this throws more light on the meaning. These teachings are universal and are found in many different cultures.


As a householder, Guru ji continued to carry out the mission of his life – to lead people on the true path to God, to dispel superstition, to bring people out of ritualistic practises, to lead them directly to follow Gurbani without the need for priests and clergy, and to restrain and guard against the five thieves within – Pride, Anger, Greed, Attachment and Lust. During his time on Earth Guru Nanak was revered by both Hindus and Muslims.

Ah, I misunderstood you. I thought you were approaching the subject from the perspective of modern clinical psychology, and so misapprehended your meaning in the matter of "diseases of the mind". I apologize.

Clinical Psychology as a "science" is a sore spot with me - I was married to a psychologist for several years, and learned more about psychology than anyone should have to endure during the course of her pursuit of a masters and a Phd. At that point, I came to view psychology as a pseudo-science, just an attempt to put a suit and tie on what amounts to little more than Haitian voodoo and make it academically respectable.

I see that's not the angle you were coming from.

Psyche...from a Greek word meaning soul...etymology. I thought you should know this. This is religion..

Psychology...and religion is often associated with drugs..both today and in yesteryears. Music too.

Hope this helps clear up some things about Psychology and why you so see it.


And by the way nenothtu..some of the names they like to banter around in Psychology courses of the Philosphers..are Hume, Kant, Spinoza, Descarte, and others. They are discussed here in lesson 44 through 48 in "The Ever War".

There is also a description of something going on about us today called "dissonance" or in another form.."Cognative Dissonance."

About how people are controlled or silenced by Dissonance as a popular tool today. I have noticed this more and more often of late.
Tied in with Hegelian Dialectic..it is very interesting once you learn to spot and index it about you regularly. Particularly near election times as a control/fear agent.

Here..The Ever War

midnight-emissary.com...

This lecture series brings to Light a lot of things we see around us today..in science, religion, philosophy politics et al.

What the speaker also does is show where modern philosophy has been brought to us down the line of Plato to show that Plato through Decartes, Spinoza, Hume, Kant and others have brought us the mind set of social thinking making us conducive to todays Socialist/Communist mind set..particularly in todays public schools and colleges. It is designed to turn out this caliber of people ...or at least Atheists.

I have never heard anyone make this kind of connection though I have noticed that many people coming out of public schools in England, Australia, and now in America seem to be more and more leaning towards Atheism. This cannot be accidental..but deliberately fostered/cultivated to turn out this kind of product.

I am not against science per se..but science makes for a very very poor religion or to replace religion.
And I also know that politically ..science is not beyond selling it's own soul or the souls of others for lucre....fame. Just as does the body politic.

What the speaker is doing is showing where the Ever War..from the Garden of Eden is still going on today...only adapted to new thinking and re hashing or re boxing of olde principles to new technology or ways of doing things to get to the same olde results. Or as Solomon stated..There is no new thing under the sun.

Various aspects of both religions are shown here. God's Way and the other Occult Esoteric ways..in history up to today and how they manifest. How they have been in conflict and continue to so do today.

This is also one reason I don't follow the NIV Bibles ...as this pattern would be very difficult to follow in the newer versions. It is difficult enough to follow in the KJV but much more difficult in the sanitized sterile new versions of the Bible...where much of the Truth has been washed out.



You certainly don't have to buy into the religious aspects but the explainations of science and philosophy tied into religion is very very interesting and not what one gets from most information outlets or public schools.
This view and knowledge is not wanted by someone out there for us to know today.
