Sorry for being uncivil
Also sorry for being goofy. Perhaps this is less goofy;
Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple
in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body. When therefore he was risen from the dead, his
disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
No bodily resurrection? Gee whiz next your gonna tell me Jesus was actually Michael the Archangel or something.
I realize that you either did not read and reason on the explanations given you, or have totally ignored the scriptures. For you have not answered
I also realize that a true Christian must always be ready to answer why they have the faith they do, with humility and deep respect. The way you
conduct yourself shows you lack "deep respect" for your fellow man. Something I will try to avoid...
"Always ready to make a defense before everyone who demands of you a reason for the hope you have, but doing so with a mild temper and deep respect."
- 1 Peter 3:15.
But since you want to make fun of and light of Scripture, and especially other people's beliefs I should probably not respond further. But I will.
Please answer me these following questions, with Scripture, for God let's us know in Scripture these answers:
Is God a spirit or is he flesh?
Where does God reside?
Are the angels in heaven like God or are they like men?
Where is heaven?
Also answer me this:
If a human went into outer space without protection what would happen to his body?
Does a human have to eat and sleep? Does God have to eat and sleep?
Does a human have to defecate? Does God have to defecate?
Does Jesus have to eat and sleep and use the bathroom? Would you not agree he has to do all these things if he had a body of flesh and blood
Now if a mortal body of flesh and blood cannot exist in outer space, how can it go to the heavens where God the invisible Spirit resides?
And if no human body could exist in God's presence because of his majestic glory (similar to trying to put a human body next to the sun, except on a
scale far grander) how could a physical human body exist in the spiritual heavens?
And please take the time, as Scripture says, and answer these questions of your faith, along with deep respect, and show us your understanding of the
previous scriptures you also ignored that directly tell us that flesh and blood cannot enter into the heavens where the invisible Spirit God
Here are a few more questions for you to ponder:
When Paul saw Jesus on his way to Damascus Jesus appeared to him as a blinding light. Why didn't he appear as a human flesh and blood if he was a
human of flesh and blood?
Why does Scripture tell us that Jesus' body is so bright that no human can look upon his form:
(1 Timothy 6:15, 16) . . .He is the King of those who rule as kings and Lord of those who rule as lords, the one alone having immortality, who
dwells in unapproachable light. . .
How does a body of flesh and blood enter into the spirit realm where no mortal body can enter. And how is it that Jesus dwells in unapproachable
light, and how is it that NO human is able to look upon his appearance as he is in his spiritual form?
(1 Timothy 6:16) . . .whom no man has seen or can see. . . .
If Jesus was flesh and blood, why does Scripture tell us that no man has seen him (in his spirit form) or can see him.
We do know that angels are invisible and we can't see them. But you claim that Jesus is NOT like God who is an invisible Spirit....
(....Now to the King of eternity, incorruptible, invisible, the only God. - 1 Timothy 1:17)
And he is NOT like the angels who are also invisible spirits like their Father Jehovah. Why do you believe Jesus is not like God who is an invisible
spirit. And why do you believe he is not like the angels who are invisible spirits? Especially when Scripture tells us that Jesus was resurrected as a
spirit in the divine image of God himself.
Why have you ignored every single scripture that says Jesus is a spirit, and will you not reason on one single question asked you here? Why will you
ignore it all and continue with your unbecoming conduct?
If you decide to ignore scripture, and then twist and contort certain ones to try and make them fit your unreasoning and unscriptural beliefs, do you
think you are acceptable to God?
Do you think my opinion matters or God's? If you believe in God, then why not believe what Scripture states?
Thank you for taking the time to answer all of these questions for me as a true Christian would, defending your faith, with deep respect:
"But sanctify the Christ as Lord in your hearts, always ready to make a defense before everyone who demands of you a reason for the hope you have, but
doing so with a mild temper and deep respect." - 1 Peter 3:15.
