However, SeekerofTruth you do seem to be ignoring the facts and evangelizing your own beliefs.
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some
doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all
nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Thanks for your reply. I always reply in the manner that I am treated accordingly, and I welcome your criticism, except to ponder on your personal
belief that I ignore the facts - facts which are from the actual source itself -words from the Messiah, cross referenced from several of his
disciples, and wondering as well what beliefs had I actually evangelized here?
You claimed that the qoute was proof of my ignorance and evanglism. So what do you really comprehend about that qoute?
1. That the Messiah claimed to be the Creator? or
2. Simply admit the fact that the Messiah himself answers to a higher authority - our Creator, whom had given him all authority on Earth and Heaven,
BUT NOT the Universe?
Also consider the fact that for 300 years after the rising of the Messiah, his disciples had not gain footholds upon the world, except for only a few
regions on Earth, and worse still, his very teachings of civilisation had been manipulated and twisted by evil men whom ruled and saw fit to make use
of religion to suit their purpose in the enslavement of mankind.
But in the 7th Century in the far flung barbaric outpost of Arabian deserts arose a civilisation - Islam, that is similar in its basic form - end to
barbarism and growth of civilisation, the worship of a common Creator and even shared and respected the bible, along with performing epiphaneous
miracles that can only be considered divine, for no other mortal can perform such today even if they claimed they were prophets.
Unfortunately,with his passing, just like christianity, evil men sought to make use of that civilisational teachings for their own selfish ends , of
greed and corruption right up till today.
And today, it is time for us, fortunate enough to be educated, to critically think, rationalise and discuss, to begin the quest back to our roots,
when civilisation began, our past, to comprehend, so that we live the present and look forward to a better future.
As our goals are the same, for we are ONE humanity following similar civilisational guidelines passed down by the generations, there need not be envy
or hate on whomever is first or last, have the most or the least, for in the sight of our common Creator whom love us all, given us gifts of life,
love and free will, we are all equal.
This is not an evanglical post, nor intended to be one. I respect each's free will and will never seek to dominate or force anyone. All I ask is that
readers just consider what I had written, to search for the truth, for I have faith in the intelligence and rationality of ATS readers.
