I would be lying if I said I knew where to start in replying to your posts.
I will start with the ones in which you wrote the same thing:
I speak for the glory of God. I have read many books so some of these thoughts come from them, but only because God has allowed me to retain what is
the truth in those books, as I may not agree with what is said in the entirety of a work.
Also the Holy Spirit inspires me to write certain things.
"God gave us the ten commandments. One of those being, Thou shalt not murder. Remember this is your god screaming: "DO NOT MURDER - I FORBID IT!
But, in the time when the New Testament comes to pass, if you beat my son bloody, nail his a$$ to a cross, give him poison to drink and stab him with
a spear until you've finally murdered him - I will begin to forgive all sins."
Where does your rationality go when you think of this as perfectly logical???? "
You do not mention His glorious resurrection, but it was part of what needed to happen to show that the ways of the world are passing away. We must
look at Jesus as the Man Who denied His Humanity in order to give us Himself.
The Image of the Cross is that of Perfect Love as I have spoken with another. It shows God loves us to the point of being tortured to death, so that
we may see that our sin is completed in the executioners of Christ. That is where sin leads, to the destruction of our own soul.
That is where we go if we follow sin.
If Jesus is followed to the death, and we endure all earthly suffering beside Him in faith and hope, then we shall be resurrected and we shall ascend
Jesus gives us the example of how to live godly. The world lives in a way, where they do not want God. God promises us Heaven if we go against the
grain of the world by living in the name of Jesus.
God shows us that it is not the physical body which matters, but it is the spirit of man, and we should never yield to the ways of the world because
spiritual harm is much more sever than physical harm.
I rationalize spiritually when it is need but in some cases I need to use "common sense" and that is what I use in the particular comment to that
" Well, no. Why would a god need a nose to breath with?
A mouth to eat with?
Ears to hear?
Does he have the plumbing required to use the bathroom?"
This one is easy. God is Spirit, and our spirits have His likeness and are able even to reflect Him
God is not a physical man.
glad I could clear this up, peace to you and to the members who have read this thread and the comments contained wherein.
