I never really went to church growing up, never read the Bible besides Revelation. I was up all night and three of my neighbors were gangstalking me I know that's mostly bull s *** but it's true. At 4:00 one of my neighbors said He assaulted Jesus. Then told the girl neighbor across the street , you could just kill him. That got me to thinking I never understood people's blind faith since birth. People here quote scripture and go back and forth in discussion and I am lost. I base my spirituality on Catholocism but has a lot of my own personal philosophy s in there too.

I got to thinking about the star that led them to baby Jesus, heard when he was 12 he went somewhere and had great knowledge of religion. And if all his life told he is special or divine? Then started his church teachings later. I am a pessimist rather than an optimist and it's like if everybody else cheats why shouldn't I . What if he was a man?

I have to admit I am really rather clueless as to what you are looking for.

What if your hot coffee was cold?

Why has Christianity conquered the whole world , televangelists on TV and presidents. I don't get it. I guess I was always suspicious of hearing extraordinary things. But got kicked out of Sunday school in fourth grade and don't remember much. How do they all know he is who he says he is? The miracles.

(in answer to your thread title...) Because a book written by men said so.

Thereafter ZERO proof........but lots of faith........enter the eternal conundrum.

This same philosophy exists with all religious texts from all religions - ever.

WRITTEN BY HUMANS - NOT "GOD"

I know this is sort of blasfamous, but it's like the whole world loves him. My neighbor said he assaulted Jesus then we could just kill him? I used to be lost before finding faith about five years ago. I know bits and portions , but never understood the whole world or 2000 years of history. I was in a government program and I was chosen to have my personal life sacrificed to see if he would come back. I am the Beast who acquires an empire then black 7 in popular music cause I looked like a school shooter. I believe what I have long suspected today, that I am Omega. F you, F you for spitting on me , F you for locking me up, F you for stealing my money. This is great. What if Jesus story was embellished for the greater good. I got practically castrated and made fun of persecuted all of life for what? I know the secrets of the world that is pulled over everyone's eyes.

Yes, written by men as a tool to control the uneducated masses. It is hard for me to understand people believe this story from back in the bronze age or what ever. Lol

It's only conquered the USA.

Out here in the rest of the world we are quite secular and Christianity is no more or less important in everyday life than Hinduism or any other religion.

Not everyone follows God because of 'blind faith'...

Sometimes He chooses to just walk in and make himself known.

That's what happened to me in 1979 when I had my first supernatural encounter.

See posts here and here for more on what happened to me...

Stop trying to figure God out...

Everything you need to know is in the Book.

He is the REAL 'Stairway to Heaven'.

He's more than just the son of God...

He IS God.


“I tell you the truth, before Abraham was born, I AM!” ~ John 8:58


The Lord Jesus Christ is the member of the Godhead by which ALL things were created...


God was made manifest in the flesh. 1 Timothy 3:16

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God" ~ John 1:1

Sounds like you are searching......good. Seek and you shall find...... so don't give up. Maybe it takes a month, a year maybe a decade but if you stay true and search he will come or send someone one and then you will be like millions of others who have seen. It is a test.... a test of faith and love for God and he wants to know how you feel about him. If you expect instant results.....well that will not work. If you don't love him well then why would you expect for him to pop up and say hello?

To me.... you sound like you are at a crossroads...... and we all have been there.....don't be so fast to choose which way to go. Don't slow down at this intersection BUT STOP! Someone honking their horn and trying to force you across the intersection? Then wave them to go around but you..... STOP.

How did I find him? Well that does not matter because you will find him a different way. It is different for all of us.

God wants a personal relationship with you..... BUT you have to make the first move if you what that too. Start with prayer.... a very POWERFUL form of communication. God is spirit and you must pray to this spirit. It will be hard at first.... start off with the Lord's prayer (goggle it) repeat it three, four, five, maybe even ten times a day.....that is a great start.

Did you know the Sabbath starts tonight and not Sunday? Tonight when the sun sets until Saturday night.......it is the Sabbath. What a great time to start your prayers.

Need more help........ no problem PM me.

USA leads with most followers, followed by Mexico and Brazil. However, there are countries with a higher percentage of its population.

Well I believe he was human. Not that I think that devalues him.

I made a poll once in a large Christian group asking what they thought Jesus was. There was a substantial amount of people that believed he was the literal son of god, and there was also a substantial amount of people that believed he was god incarnate himself.

So it's likely you'll get mixed responses even from the Christians concerning this.

He was just a man, according to the musical, "Jesus Christ, Super Star". Sounds hokey, yeah, but google the lyrics of the main song from that production and you will find it asks precisely what you have here.

Lyrics;

I don't know how to love him
What to do, how to move him
He's a man;
He's just a man
And I've had so many men before
In very many ways
He's just one more.

Okay, ATS may not be the musical crowd, BUT, this production acts out man's quest to understand Jesus, the man vs Jesus Christ.

The beginning years of HIS life is vague, likely purposefully for the impactful years. I have no doubt that He lived, and died...but admittedly, I have those "Holy Blood, Holy Grail" moments occassionally.



if everybody else cheats why shouldn't I .


What does your cheating have to do with Jesus being just a man? Ya lost me.

(Apologies to all ATS if my bringing up a musical offends anyone.
)

What?
You want to know if Jesus is real, but now think you're the Beast? And what govt program? This just sounds like a mishmash of religion and conspiracy.

The list only includes people with earned doctorates in "hard" sciences, like biology, chemistry, physics, math, but not psychology, sociology, law, etc. I have also included doctorates in the philosophy or history of science. For those unfamiliar with the nomenclature, a DPhil (or ScD) degree is usually considered equivalent to a PhD. For example, the University of Oxford awards DPhil degrees.
This is a very incomplete list of just a few top-notch scientists who are also Christians www.whyfaith.com...

1. They didn't use the Bible while they were conducting scientific experiments.
2. The fact there are Christian scientists doesn't mean science and scripture are compatible.

Because a book, and more than 2 billion people who believe that book, say he is the son of god. In reality, Jesus is a meme. A meme that has been perpetuated for millennia by some well meaning, and some not so well meaning people and institutions.
