OKAY HALT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't stand this line of thinking anymore...

that it isn't your works that get you 'admittance' in heaven...

if not by works than by what? ... faith ... ? faith is entangible unless one actually uses it.
Faith wasn't as polluted as it is today..
Faith was meant to mean that YOUR THINKING and YOUR ACTING were in balance...
Not that you can act like a bloody dolt and say I Love Jesus, and run away like a little kid ... It means you act impeccably... I absolutely truthfully tell you, saying you love jesus and believe in him is NOT good enough, if you do not believe in his disciples...
You are merely going thru the motions, even the motions of false belief, and false faith.
You compartmentalize and allocate God, you are false prophets, false messengers and the leaders of blind men being blind yourself.

EDIT:

Saint4God

People that follow it do not have power, God does. God is the absolute power of Christianity.

Go read the bible again... God said Specifically that he gave us the dominion over earth.. the keys to bind whatever we wanted on heaven or earth...
He also said that HIS WORD stands BEFORE him... He cannot Break his own word..
Go read the bible again my friend.. You have perverted it in your own mind.. DO NOT tell people they are beneath anyone... God has said otherwise..

For instance these quotes..

Hebrews 6:17
Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the HEIRS of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath.

Pslams 119:89-90
Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. Your faithfulness continues through all generations.

Pslams 138:2-3
I will bow down toward your holy temple and will praise your name for your love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted your name above all things and your word above your name.

Luke 18:1-2
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up

Ephesians 6:17-18
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

Matthew 16:19-20
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Matthew 18:18-20
I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For were two or three come together in my name, THERE I AM WITH THEM

That is the absolute power of Christianity.

Good quotes. They didn't answer any of my questions or address any of my points, but appreciate them all nonetheless. I hope my statements weren't taken to mean that once you have faith you should do no works. On the contrary, the book of James (as previously cited) has a lot to say about giving a person's faith "legs". Included in that is mercy, help, and other deeds to help not only yourself grow, but for the benefit of others through God's appointment.

As you said that Christ is with those gathered in his name there is power, which is what I'm saying too. The absolute power is God, the gift of Christ. His presence, His power, His love.

A GREAT QUESTION! It's all about motivation. Many times in life people do things to gain something, to get a reward. At work, it's "Good job saint4God" here's a paycheck. Or in college it was "good job saint4God" here's an A+. We're so used to a meritocracy that it's a hard thing to grapple. It wasn't much different in Jesus' time here on earth...which is why he had to explain the concept many times in many ways.


But the meritocracy for religion is after-life, eternal life, heaven etc. However, I can do work, and not get a paycheck (volunteer). I can also do a college type paper just to further my knowledge and understanding, hence there's no A+ needed. You're used to meritrocracy because it is what surrounds Christianity, and indeed many other religions that offer rewards.



Why then would a person already saved do good deeds? The book of James puts it best, but essentially it's out of gratitude for that gift already received, the love of God therefore wanting to do good, and the desire to spread that love to others as well. It's a whole new nature, a perspective that's refeshing to see others benefit.


But you're still doing it with the reward of heaven. Honestly, the greatest deed any person could possibly do is to give blood. The only reward there is the knowledge that you are helping to save lives.



I tend to think I'm good to go on self-esteem. But, to say "I am tall!" standing next to the Eiffel Tower is a little ridiculous, comparatively speaking.


So we should all think ourselves inferior because of tall buildings such as the Eiffel Tower? Remeber it's 'man' that built it. Man could tear it down. Man can build even taller structures. The concept of 'God' is created by man, that concept is written down by man, religion could be destroyed by man. We hold the cards. So again I asked 'why belittle yourself'?

Not sure what this has to do with our discussion. I think a believer would find that the Living Word as God speaks it is the same as the written Word of God as recorded in the Bible.

no offense dude at all... you know the text but haven't absorbed it yet.. when you do you'll really be able to help people.. I have faith in you, and thats why I choose to comment on your posts... I apologize and understand I have been known to rant and confuse in the past, but I have learned and labored, so now I strive to actually help people understand their own problems not the ones I encountered..

[edit on 11/9/2006 by PuRe EnErGy]

Can someone back me up here? honestly.. how is this practical at all.. ??? A God that is superior.. but non-existant in us.. and judging us ?.. not expecting us to get to heaven by acts... but by faith.. ? yet judging us? .. sounds like the humpty dance to me.. (shout outs to digital underground) ..
Its apparent God isn't in you judging .. because you would have told yourself by now that some of these people are saying things that are true.. your too busy with your self-importance and self-pity to learn anything.. always about the OMG He didn't agree with me!
When people are trying to point out your faults you should take their word on it.. theres obviously something your doing wrong.. or else people would be thanking you for help, not arguing with you.

If you looked hard enough you can find it on ATS already. Don't know why I need to repeat every time. It's on a word doc and 2 pages long. I don't think the mods want me to do that again...and now there's a 10,000 character maximum on posts.

Send me your e-mail and I'll send it to you on MSWord doc. Or, I can copy-paste it into a U2U if there's no cap on it (I haven't tried). I don't know, haven't tried. It's a foolish thing for me to do without explaining why my mistakes should not be repeated and the testimony will not prove anything to you. I have not gone back on my word, you stopped talking to me.

You know how to reach me if I can be of further help. Again, there are others I have already named who could perhaps be a better fit for you. Though I must say connecting with God is not about Him conforming to you.

Stop forcing your beliefs on us

We've all heard it on here and in our day to day lives. Christianity, by being in the public square, is forcing its views on people. I find the use of the word "force" very interesting.

When people are saying that Christians having the Ten Commandments in the public square or sharing their faith is forcing their beliefs upon them, they're pretty much admitting Christianity is the Truth. If being exposed to it forces you to become a Christian, it must be the most powerful message ever to have been created (in my opinion, it is).

So I guess I agree, by Christians sharing the Gospel, they are, in fact, forcing their beliefs and God's will on you.


I believe you are correct, but other faiths also have pieces of the truth, for our god is a relentlessingfully mercyfull God, the GOD of TRUTH.

here is an example of how Christians know your thought processes better than you do:

instead of choosing to love the truth first Or obey the first commandment, here are your first 6 loves:

1) Fear. this is merely a byproduct of your dna that says: "self before i serve", a.k.a. "self preservation", also known as "survive".

2) Food. you needed this for cellular replication in the womb.

3) Family. they nurished and protected you, and helped hide your fears from you.

4) Friends. you wanted to be accepted and belong.

5) Fornication. you were curious about a thing called "Love", and explored the physical manifestation of an etherial concept.

6) Finances. this provided you a means to gather more of your last 4 loves, and helped hide you from your first love of fear.

your 6 loves chosen prior to loving the truth were:
Fear, Food, Family, Friends, Fornication, & Finances.

6 choices you made to love 6 things that all begin with the 6th letter of your "ALL FIB BET".

so, instead of loving the truth, you have chosen to love: 666.

And, yes!!!!! you were fore-warned a couple thousand years ago. Sorry if you thought we were lying to you. But, if you weren't so busy lying to yourself, perhaps you would have found the time to hear the words of GOD?

Just because people don't want the 10 commandments on show in public, it does not mean they are admitting Christianity is 'true'. The problem is that we live in a multicultral society, and that not everyone is a Christian, and that not everyone upholds The Bible or certain Christian values. If we've got statues of the 10 commandments, then I want to know why we haven't got statues of Buddha, Mohammad or Shiva for example. That would be some town square. And not 'some' town square in the good sense, it'd look absolutely awful filled with too many statues of people's religions.

So the question should be: why, when there are no other statues of other cultures/religions, does Christianity get to have a statue of the 10 commandments?

For example, I used to live in Newmarket, Suffolk. It's a very popular horse racing town, and the town has grown up surrounded by horse racing for hundreds of years. There's a big statue as you enter of a horse. This is stating, this is Newmarket, we're famous for our horse racing, and we love it.

So what a 10 commandments statue is saying is, this is a Christian town/city, and that is total a misrepresentation, espeically as it's completely wrong. But that's the affect that it's giving off, if you just have one statue of one thing.

The Ten Commandments were reduced just like moses reduced the commandments...
the commandment that held all others was... Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You. and guard over thy neighbour as he were the pupil of your eye.

They are much simpler commandments to keep.. why do you choose to remember hardships when you were given cushioned boats..?

You know, it becomes evident for a evangelical christian that it is by faith.
But I swear they go by works with fear that somehow they arent living up to whatever gift they have.

"and if it is a gift, and cant be by works, for it is no longer a gift"

But then one starts to think about this.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his son, that whoever believes in him will not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved?

The question is what does it mean to believe, and to have faith...your eternity depends on it, but its not by works or anything you can do to maintain. Infact,

"it is the spirit who calls..." and also "God hardened pharoahs heart, he hardens whom he wants and softens who he wants to. Who can call God unjust if He..." it goes on.

From the base level where most Christians come from, if they take this serious, and I know they do, they will swim around this issue until there dying day. If they are true and seek truth, with all their heart. Of course if they seek, the will indeed find...But when they emerge from the water it will be on a level and a perspective they could not have dreamed of before, and somewhat heretical to the norm.

What am I saying? Basically, if you get past these points, you will see collectively how concepts actually apply, but not in the way that is understood on the base level.
On the base level, the argument is a lost cause, and every Christian should hang up their hat, cause with it alone, as it is taught, they cannot hold the argument.

Some crucial things begin to crystalize in forms of questions.
As metioned...what of the man that never heard.
"man is without excuse because of nature"
What of choice?
"It is God who chooses not Man"

On this level you begin to see it, and perhaps in a disconserting way.
But wade through all of it, if you are already in it, and you will start to see the light of day.
But this comes with seeking with all your might, and that doesnt mean in limited places, such as Bible only, and limited ways of thought. i.e. narrow minded doctrine.

In the end of it all...you find, when you begin to accept, and find yourself in the only moment you have...which is the now.

end? This question I leave to y'all, because I'm not sure. Why start a concerted effort to remove a message of peace and love from society through law and propoganda?


As an agnostic-atheist I can understand why people get offended by Christian propoganda and Christian "idols" being placed in public venues. I don't want to see a pillar with the Ten Commandments on it just as much as I don't want to see a statue of Muhammad or a floor design made up of an upside down pentagram. It's not the message of peace and love we want removed from society, there's nothing wrong with peace and love. But to people like me Jesus is viewed as say...a false prophet. If someone who you viewed as a false prophet was preaching things about love and peace, would you want his statues and his teachings all over the country in all our public buildings and whatnot? The teachings of Bhuddists have some very nice things that go right in line with Christian ideals, but would you be okay with having every courtroom in America have a statue of "false idol"?

The point I was trying to make is...

Faith by itself is nothing unless it prompts you to actually do something..

If one had faith in God.. or Jesus or whoever- it would prompt them to act as God, Jesus or whoever, in faith that it is the way..

The point in the bible is.. you can't just dooooo good things with a mind that is horribly angry doing those good things..
Its taking away the 'REWARD' aspect of God... because the reward has already been given..

and the promise of an eternal life? that's another similarity among religions

i don't see the absolute power of christianity there
