However, being baptized, doesn’t that make one a Baptist?


You are what you label yourself as... I was baptized... i was born into christianity...

Yet i am neither baptist or Christian...

No need to label your beliefs... they are what they are... ye know?

I've found those that choose a label for themselves end up adhearing to a specific doctrine... be it christian, baptist, muslim... whatever...

Theres truth in almost all religions... but if one sticks to specific line of thought, i find he/she misses the bigger picture...



I agree.... as you and I usually agree on posts such as this.


You said it earlier.... it sparked in me and I will always remember it now... You said about Religion, "That is because religion limits ones spritual progression". That is TRUTH right there! Why limit? Why label? There is no need!

Jesus did not create a religion.... PERIOD. Had he said, "Follow Christianity" I would.... but... he didn't.

He KNEW Religious teachings were far from His Truth. His way is not through control. Period.

I'll agree with that. He didn't want a religion about him. He wanted one about his way.

Exactly, god embodied himself in human form to bring us his living words


God is Love. God is within all of us.

When God spoke.... it sent out a vibration of life/love. www.sufimessage.com...

With that said God does not need to manifest into a human. Thats not quite how I see Him working. But... not saying you are wrong either.

With the spoken Word/life/love there had to be truth given. Jesus is The Way/The Truth (faith).

When Jesus says God is Love and He is within. That tells ME that God is the love I give and receive. Anything else is not of God.... It is of the mark of the beast (selfishness/darkness). If we miss the mark then that means we are not walking with God (we are being selfish).

Jesus taught us how to live for others... to be out of self. Anything opposite of that is living as an Anti-Christ (opposite of Jesus).

He wanted US to follow his ways but not seek out an organization or start one because once this happens, the greed takes over and the leaders live for them selves which is the opposite of what Jesus teaches. Their teachings can be selfless at first and then what happens? Pride comes in and wipes it all away.

I won’t argue the point.
The three forms of God :
The father
The son
The Holy Spirit

God is incomprehensible to us and that is why your salvation lies within the son

Salvation from what exactly?


The only "salvation" there is lies within yourself... He is only one path... Perhaps the best, there is no doubt of that... but everyone walks their own...

And all paths lead to the same place... Home

Nonsense...

There is no eternal damnation... thats just a scare tactic Christians use for conversion...

Anyone can know God by looking within themselves...

Ok would want to be you when judgment day rolls around
God so loved the world he sent his only begotten son
And whosoever believes in him will have ever-lasting life.
God knows we can not understand him and that is why he sent the son

We already had ever lasting life... he came to show us that fact...

Don't you worry about me... I'll be fine when that day comes

Defiance of who? The God of the bible?

HA!

Heres some more so called "defiance"...

Jesus said, "If your leaders say to you, 'Look, the (Father's) kingdom is in the sky,' then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is within you and it is outside you.

When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will understand that you are children of the living Father. But if you do not know yourselves, then you live in poverty, and you are the poverty."
