Very interesting thread!For those who do not yet believe, may God soften your hearts.May God renew your mind, strengthen your spirit, free you from the spirits of wickedness, so that you may direct your steps towards Him! May Jesus Christ cleanse and enlighten your souls!
For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, And every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
Logical enough, but I don't think God wants people to live life in fear of the reality of His existence - or the fear of hell.In essence - is it more rational to live a life as if God doesn't exist and then come to find out that He does or;
To live a life as if God does exist to then find out that He doesn't?
Maybe so, but large standard deviations mean we can't draw any conclusions about the IQ of OP or any other individual religion enthusiast.Past research has found that religiosity correlates with lower IQ
Science is too complex for those with lower intelligence, who therefore resort to the simpler explanations and life-guiding rules of religions.
And what has Rocky to do with this? he is your God?
My imagination is limited and I cannot go so far as to imagine that I am God. God is far too great to take place in a man's imagination.Very interesting thread!
For yourself and any other Christians here...can we do a thought experiment?
Imagine you were God Himself. All powerful and all loving. You had a bunch of kids to look after...
....and, being God, you could rig the game any way you wanted.
Wouldn't you rig it so they would all come back to you eventually?
In other words...what is the purpose of an eternal hell? If I were God such a thing would make me incurably miserable.
Even the scripture says that He's not willing that any should perish. Wouldn't God get His way eventually?
Never heard a satisfactory explanation for / rebuttal of this concept!
I second that GuiCHE!Hello,
I think it would be right to say that most of us are in this forum because we want to be the best version of ourselves, have the best health possible and gather a lot of knowledge about the true way to wellness.
Well, my contribution is not going to be precisely medical, or about a supplement, or strictly lab-related.
It's gonna be about what I know more about, the true religion.
Why would you be interested in religion?
- Well, it's more about knowing God. That's the way of seeing it.
You should be interested because from the creation itself we can see He is a wise, powerful, loving God, worthy of praise. You should not be missing it.
Now, if you somehow get to have contact with The Bible, there will be no doubt on the subject.
So, you can guess now: the true religion is Christianism. But the true, original way of it, accordingly to the sound doctrine.
To put it more clearly is the Bible-centered evangelical christianism.
This I consider a contribution to you all because life is seriously meaningless if you don't get to know Jesus Christ. Plus He is the author of salvation of men. I'll explain this now.
Jesus (a.k.a God) came to Earth as we know aproximately 2.000 years ago. He came to pay the price of our sins, which is death. That's why He, being perfect, suffered the unfair punishment of crucifiction;
Like the Bible says:
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Jesus is the visible image of God. As he died without any sin commited ever, the grip of death didn't hold him; for God the Father resurrected him on the third day.
We christians have believed in the words and works of Jesus and so through that same God-given faith we have been reconciliated with God.
If Jesus died for us so that we would have eternal life, then believing in his sacrifice and accepting Him as Lord is how we reach that justification.
Nothing else! God did it all for us.
Then, living in holyness is just a consecuence of the believer being saved.
Saved from what? (if you didn't get it yet)
- Saved from the fair and just eternal death (that means conscious suffering) in the lake of fire. A place created by God to punish anybody, be it human or angel, who has decided to walk through the path of sin. Much more if they had turned their backs on the Son of God.
So, my contribution is this:
While a lot of people here can give useful information about ways to get you into physical health; me, as a servant of God share the gospel with you so that to your health you sum up salvation and eternal life, and true purpose of living (thought you had it or not).
In conclusion: live your life for God, honor Him. Respond to his sacrifice in Jesus Christ with living a holy life, free of sin. Get a Bible, I recommend the KJV (version matters), and read it; learn about Him.
You will see things much more clear, in any aspect. If you care about the things He created and how they work, much more you should care about knowing who made them.
I already pointed you the way.
God bless you.
Adam was made after God's image, originally having eternal life.In other words...what is the purpose of an eternal hell? If I were God such a thing would make me incurably miserable.
Of course, it's just a matter of whether His creation surrenders to His will or not.Even the scripture says that He's not willing that any should perish. Wouldn't God get His way eventually?
The common expression of having a "fear of God" is a two-edged sword.Logical enough, but I don't think God wants people to live life in fear of the reality of His existence - or the fear of hell.
