There is a narrow path that leads to life, and a wide road that leads to destruction. Many people on the wide path will believe they are happy, but they have only justified there existence. If one finds the narrow path it is God that will justify your existence. I am not lying to the boy, Christ holds the key to the narrow road and you hold the key to the wide path. He can take either road but the burden of Christ is light. :-)
Spoken like a TRUE believer... You would make my father proud.
Christianity certianly does teach a narrow minded approach to god and life... That way there is less chance of followers seeing the truth.
If your road and your god are a BURDEN? Than perhaps your need to reevaluate your religion.
Mathew 7:13-14 13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
Since my interpretation leads to loving my brother and not judging him it must be correct because it is the only interpretation that agrees with the commands of Christ Jesus.
If a coffin bears the name of "Jesus" it's only a name - if it said something like "Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ, the Messiah,"
Although Nazareth exists today as a thriving Arab city of 65,000 in northern Israel, some scholars have believed it didn't exist during Jesus' lifetime. For example, the Encyclopedia Biblica in 1899 stated, "It is very doubtful whether the beautiful mountain village of Nazareth was really the dwelling-place of Jesus."
Nazareth is not mentioned even once in the entire Old Testament. The Book of Joshua (19.10,16) – in what it claims is the process of settlement by the tribe of Zebulon in the area – records twelve towns and six villages and yet omits any 'Nazareth' from its list.
• The Talmud, although it names 63 Galilean towns, knows nothing of Nazareth, nor does early rabbinic literature.
• St Paul knows nothing of 'Nazareth'. Rabbi Solly's epistles (real and fake) mention Jesus 221 times, Nazareth not at all.
• No ancient historian or geographer mentions Nazareth. It is first noted at the beginning of the 4th century.
Jesus Did Not Fulfill the Messianic Prophecies
What is the Messiah supposed to accomplish? The Bible says that he will:
Build the Third Temple (Ezekiel 37:26-28).
Gather all Jews back to the Land of Israel (Isaiah 43:5-6).
Usher in an era of world peace, and end all hatred, oppression, suffering and disease. As it says: "Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall man learn war anymore." (Isaiah 2:4)
Spread universal knowledge of the God of Israel, which will unite humanity as one. As it says: "God will be King over all the world ― on that day, God will be One and His Name will be One" (Zechariah 14:9).
