  1. What do you believe will happen to me if I don't accept your flat earth belief?
  2. Truth based on actual evidence, not mere conjecture.
  3. Be a truth seeker, not a "what's true for me", seeker. Search for what's actually true, not what you wish were true.
  4. Your first priority should be to ask what is ACTUALLY true, even if you don't believe it or understand it. The what is true for me question is a flawed question. You have to believe in eternity because it is a scientific concept.
  5. Please take the time to read this first post and vote in the poll if you haven't yet.
  6. Ok, but shouldn't your first priority be to seek what is actually true over what makes you feel good? In the short run, that might work for you, but in the long run of eternity, it's a horrible tragedy. Eternity is a very long time. You should re think this approach. Seek the truth no matter where is leads you and you will find it and I believe you will also find eternal life in Christ.
  7. It's depressing, but the positive is that NO ONE has to go to hell (Prison). A Sin is a crime against God. If we could get to heaven any other way, God wouldn't have had to send His Son to die in our place. Think about what a drastic measure that is on God's part. To send His Son that He loves to leave His throne and comfort in heave to come and suffer, feel pain and die for you and I. But He did it out of His love for us. That is the 100% truth. The GOOD NEWS is that EVERYONE and ANYONE can be saved IF they will place their faith in Jesus Christ and His death burial and resurrection to pay for their sins. Man if I didn't believe this, I wouldn't waste my time. I wouldn't go to Church I would sleep in. But God showed Himself to me in so many ways. What kind of a person would I be to NOT tell people? Would I keep coming here and bumping this conversation if I wasn't 100% sure who Jesus Christ is? NO I certainly would not! I have better things to do with my time than that IF these things I tell you had not happened to me. God called me into this. EVERYONE is eligible for Salvation and I am trying to get the word out. That is my main calling. I have also been a Worship Leader for many years in my Church. I can't tell you the wonderful feeling to feel the presence of the Holy Spirit when I lead God's People in Worship. It's real and strengthens me. It enables me to do my job more effectively than my natural ability. TRUTH!
  8. Every culture in the world has a history of those things in their past. That is due to the sinful nature of man. That is why we need a Savior because God has to judge these things at some point. Since we are all guilty, God sent His Son who is innocent to die in our place so that if we put our Faith in Christ, He gives us His righteousness in the eyes of God. It's because we are not good enough.
  9. There are doctrines that children can understand and then there are deeper things of God that take years. That is how God made it. I think it's amazing. Children can certainly understand things like Don't lie, don't steal, love each other, ect. The stories also have lessons, but here are also deeper doctrines. It's an amazing book, the more you study, the more you learn.
  10. It takes a lot of Biblical Study. The Bible is the inspired book of God Himself. It takes years to understand these Doctrines. Trust me, they are very deep and there is no WAY that this book isn't the very Word of God. It is IMPOSSIBLE that 40 different authors, over a 1600 year period in 3 Languages, in different walks of life, many of them didn't have access to the others writings could have just come up with this on their own. It all fits together perfectly like one book because it is the very Word of God. I've been studying this all of my life and still learning. I am a truth seeker, if I didn't believe this was really true, I would not be wasting my time trust me. If you want to understand the Bible, I have a Bible teacher that would teach you better than anyone else and he is online. It's 25 minute lessons at your own place and time. https://lesfeldick.org/
  11. Christ will rule the World and Universe from Jerusalem in Israel. His people will be the leaders of the World, the Nation that the others look to solve their issues. The OT Jewish Saints and the Jews who are in Christ have a special calling. The Grace Age believers of today also have a special calling, but it is different than that of Israel. They are the Bride of Christ and will inherit heavenly blessings from God. They will also rule and reign with Christ, but in a different role than the Jewish saints of OT.
  12. God is treating everyone equal. Salvation is STILL available for the Jews who place their faith in Christ. It is also available to the Gentiles who place their faith in Christ. But as a Nation, they have rejected Him and there is a blindness upon them until Christ lifts it.
  13. Well here is the problem for you. You cannot forgive your own sins, but Christ has the ability to forgive yours because of His Death and Resurrection. You are not able to resurrect yourself, but Christ is able to resurrect you. You cannot take yourself to heaven, but Christ can take you there. You cannot keep yourself out of hell, but Christ can and satan and his demons take those who don't have Christ immediately to hell when they die. By Trusting in Christ, you gain all these things in Him. Plus, You cannot protect yourself from every tragedy or danger, but Christ is able. He is also able to bless you in every area of your life. Think about this, God promised to blessed the Jewish Nation and Jews are the richest most successful race of people in the world, precisely because of that promise. Their blessings are earthly and Christ will rule the world from Jerusalem one day, but because they rejected Him, they lost 2,000 years of blessings so far. When He comes again, Israel will recognize Him as their Messiah. God hasn't cast away Israel, but because of their rejection, they have been set aside for a time. Ro 11:1 ¶ "I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid..." As a whole, they cannot recognize their Messiah because of the rejection of their Fathers, but there are individual Jews who do recognize Him: Currently, the Gospel of Salvation has gone to the Gentile world because of the rejection Ro 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. But Jews can be saved God desires It. Ro 1:16 ¶ For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. "Greek" is symbolic of the Gentiles.
  14. That is true. I don't fear because my faith is in Christ.
