From my point of view Jesus taught works instead of faith in an idol of himself. Paul taught Idolize Jesus as a charm/mantra and you are automatically saved.
Matthew 25:31-46 Parable of sheep and goats. Jesus clearly state that people who do not do works and say they are following him without works are cursed. So faith without works is dead and works without faith, is the people in the parable who do good without knowing they are doing what Jesus wanted.
I would pray for you servant if it actually reached someone. You are arguing your interpretations of the bible as fact and the way you were taught as fact.
For all people that believe in Christianity as a religion (believing in god is different) please search deuteronomy 18:22. If you still believe in the religion after reading that there is no "salvation" for you unfortunately
Text Its not that they are exclusive friend. Its because you seem to have a misunderstanding on the nature of Truth. Truth is exclusive. That is what makes it stand out for everything that is false. If contradictions are made then either one side is true and the other is not, or neither are true. So the point is exclusivity comes from the nature of truth.
In science maybe. In religion and faith I think you are as right as muslim and buddhist and most of the religions.
They have their books too you know.
The guy came 2000 years ago, give me a break about knowing exactely what he meant and how it would be now.
I'm sad you believe you destined to go to hell. But I thank you for this discussion:
I understand better why faith get people to do insane stuff, in the name or their vengeful god, in fear of their version of hell.
God created one man and one woman? Then they went on to create so many different races. But evolution doe not exist. But they changed magically somehow.The earth is only 100,000 years old and dinosaurs are not real.
One thing that's hard to understand is that God's wisdom is greater than Anything we can comprehend.
It doesn't teach that humans magically changed.....you have no idea what your talking about..
Then you believe that at points in time the laws of logic, such as the law of noncontradiction do not hold. This world view is by its very definition irrational. If both I and a Muslim have truth logic falls apart, because the muslim and I contradict.
"Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; 14but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life."
I am aware, and they don't stand up next to the 66 documents of the Bible.
Your argument shows your ignorance of how we construct our history.
I believe you sorely misunderstood me, but it seems English is not your first language so I will cut you some slack.
