something curious to read in john chapter 10, is that Jesus told some that they would never believe because they were not His sheep and were not given
to Him by the father, and that, in fact, He and the Father are One. Those who He spoke to then tried to kill Him. so He started arguing with them
So . . .
Someone who could make rocks rise up and worship Himself argued with people who would not believe because they were not elected to.
Someone who could knock down "men of stature" with the simple words of "I am," endured people who were trying to kill Him.
Someone who is God incarnate didn't destroy everything that exists, based on the just idea that all the creation is under vanity and therefore the
wrath of God, but rather is longsuffering, even unto death for those who are His.
i am fairly certain that if Jesus needed to bring about more proof, or maybe even use a silly, inaccurate, sensationalistic movie to garner attention
for His name, He would have.
He came at a time in which there had been many others making similar claims of being "the messiah" and therefore His claims were not all that
unique. He came at a time when travel was limited and never went more than 200 miles from home. He came at a time when communication was fairly
localized. so either God is dumb, picked a bad time to come and His lasting word is all luck, or maybe He is God and things like this are
i don't think God is dumb. if He wanted to use some algebra or slick marketing to wow "potential believers, He would have. there are many things
He could have done and in fact did at certain times during His walk on earth, but didn't perform in accordance to how we think He should have.
maybe someone should give God (or The Head Alien) a marketing lesson. you know, since He totally neglected proper advertising and merchandising.
