Theres more to salvation than simply accepting Jesus into your heart and confessing it verbally. In saying this, you overlook many of the other inclusions of salvation, such as confession, repentance, baptism and living a life for Christ. People often argue the point that Christianity is not a works based faith, or its not just a grace given gift to be saved. Both are mentioned in fact. Does the Bible teach that Christ comes into a person’s heart? Yes, but not in the way the religious world suggests. For instance, Ephesians 3:17 states that Christ dwells in the heart through faith. Faith can be acquired only by hearing biblical truth (Romans 10:17). When Bible truth is obeyed, the individual is “saved by faith” (Hebrews 5:9; James 2:22; 1 Peter 1:22). Thus Christ enters our lives when we “draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience [repentance] and our bodies washed with pure water [baptism]” (Hebrews 10:22).To suggest that all one has to do to receive the forgiveness of God and become a Christian is to mentally accept Jesus into his heart and make a verbal statement to that effect, is to dispute the declaration of Jesus in Matthew 7:21—“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.” To be sure, oral confession of Christ is one of the prerequisites to salvation (Romans 10:10). But Jesus said there is more to becoming a blood-bought follower of His than merely “calling on his name” or “inwardly accepting Him as Savior.” He stated that before we can even consider ourselves as God’s children (Christians), we must show our acceptance of His gift through outward obedience—“He that does the will of My Father.” Notice the significant contrast Jesus made: the difference between mental/verbal determination to accept and follow the Lord, versus verbal confession coupled with action or obedience (James 2:14,17). Jesus is telling us that it is possible to make the mistake of claiming we have found the Lord, when we have not done what He plainly told us to do. “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46).
And thus are such the thoughts of MajorBOB.

Alright. Christiantiy has become SO warped by those who are NOT themselves Christians that it has been given a bad name. And that's not cool. I'm going to outright state right now that I am a Christian. Looking at the lives of many so called "Christians" around me, I can clearly see that they are NOT Christians. Calling yourself something doesn't make you so. Christianity isn't a title to be called; it's a lifestyle to be lived. It's purpose is to give hope to humanity, whether they are in a good position or not, that there is something better to look forward to after this life is over.

The Bible is basically like a history book that shows the foundations of Christianity and then gives guidelines to follow to receive God's gift of salvations. Virtually every event in it has been validated in some historical fashion, no matter how much people try to cover it up. There isn't a whole lot 'interpretation' to put into the Bible's study. It is what it is, with the exception of few prophetic books and excerpts. So there shouldn't be any real reason for divisions in the Church i.e. Catholicism, Lutheranism, etc. The main reason those came about were for manipulation of a people, acquisition of power, or because someone felt that they should take it upon themselves to change something they didn't like about God's Word. And it was these unBiblical divisions that brought about such wars of the past as the Crusaides. Sure, God slew a few civilizations, but He can't exist where there is sin.

One misconception about God is that He all merciful and can do anything. The reality is that God can't lie and He doesn't contradict Himself. I'm sure a few of you can point out a couple of biblical passages out of context and claim contradiction, but that just means that you haven't searched the scriptures well enough.

About marriage. The root purpose of marriage is to put a mother figure and a father figure together to raise offspring. Generally, offspring can only be made with male and female contribution. Homosexual people can't exactly do that... yet. The homosexual urge is that of a sexual urge. And the only purpose of marrying a gay couple is to validate these sexual urges. And like I said before, marriage isn't based around freely having sex; it's root purpose is for creating a proper environment for raising a family. Being gay isn't a sin. Acting upon its urges is.

Judgement. God did not create sin. He created free will so that we may choose to follow Him. And disobedience to God is sin. BUT, He did give us a way to cleanse ourselves of sin through His Son that we may be saved and live in Heaven with Him and eternal salvation and bliss and yata yata you all know that. Hell isn't a firey furnace that He created to throw us because we were bad. It's only described with firey terms because its torturefull attributes can't be comprehended. Hell is the absolute absense of God. He supports His entire creation, so without Him it all crumbles, per se. That's also where the different 'levels' of Hell come in. Hell is Hell. It's just whether you were given the opportunity to become a Christian or not that dictates how much suffering occurs. The more you are exposed to God, the more opportunity you have to become a Christian, so if you choose to ignore these opportunities, Hell will be all the more miserable than as with someone who never knew God, because you had salvation in your grasp and were that close.

The Flood. There have been records found not only in the geological records, but also in non-Christian cultures of a "flood." Many scientists believe that before this flood, there had never been rain. The morning dews and mists were enough to sustain any vegitation and keep resevoirs full etc.etc. The atmosphere, according to this theory, would have retained a lot of water. And then when God felt it was necessary, this water was let loose over one period of time i.e. 40 days/nights, not only from the sky, but up from the ground.

...or so I've learned...

I study a lot of the science of the Bible. Just sayin.

As most of the people ended their posts, I'm not trying to force my believe down anyones' throats. I just don't want people to be misinformed of Christianity by what those who don't know it properly say.

Rating Orb MajorBOB, Chaotic Neutral Mathemagician – joined 10 years ago What religion would you WANT to be true?67.255.XXX.XXX8 years ago
In reference to some previous posts, I just want to say that any diety-based relgion or any type of society where there is a king ship or leader or what have you, I'd think it would be the ruling power or governing force that decides how to be worshipped, not the people. They have to accept the Law as it is or else they are acting apart from the 'state.' I study both Christianity and the physical sciences pretty avidly, so message me if you'd like to me to try and enlightened you in any area.
But back to the point of this post...
If I wanted any religion to be true, I would have to go with the Jedi religion. Not only would I be able to use the force and shoot lightning at my foes, I would be able to come back as a ghost after I died. How cool would it be to have the capability to force jump or the capacity to envision the future or to have near superhuman strength? I would be a Jedi space pirate on the edge of going Sith. Jedi politics yeild too much drama. What kind of Jedi would YOU choose to be? :o

If God made it blatantly clear that He existed, would He attract only the truly good and faithful? I say nay! Everyone would be flocking to the nearest church and trying to figure out what to do to be saved. The fact that the Bible bases its Creator on faith shows that God only wants those who are willing to follow Him through thick and thin. So He gives us the choice to either follow Him or refuse Him. We can still live the life we want, as long as the life we live follows the commands God gave us, if we so choose that path, that we might recieve the grand prize of eternal life and all that good stuff. So our ENTIRE life can be the product of free will. It's just whether or not we take the appropriate actions that could lead us to heaven that God is concerned with. These are MajorBOB's thoughts on the subject.

Rating Orb MajorBOB, Chaotic Neutral Mathemagician – joined 10 years ago What Annoys You About the Previous Poster?67.255.XXX.XXX8 years ago
Mr. Djeuve. You are my victim!
Well, first off, I find your name annoying. I dont know if I should pronounce the D or skip it and go straight to the j or even pronounce both in sequence. I do like saying them in sequence, however, and for some reason everytime I see your name I have to say it out loud in a semi-uncultured manner: De jew vay. And my eyes can't really focus on your avatar. That might be partially due to my terrible eye problems, but it's something since I don't know a whole lot about you.
BUT, since you are 27, considerably older than most of the forum inhabitants, I get a slight impression that you're better/smarter/etc than some of the younger dudes. Or not. You are very analytical though and read into situations immensely. For instance, I was perusing through your posts to try and figure something to say about this and I saw your post on UFOs. What you said would probably go WAAYY over the heads of most of the people here. I'm sure that when they read some of that they go to wikipedia or wherever so that when they respond they look like they know what they're doing, but maybe you should dumb it down a bit. (Not really, you're quite fine actually. I'm just saying this so that it looks like I found a lot of annoying stuff about you. But since everybody can read this, I was probably better off not mentioning it.)
p.s. Im a fan of your being a fan of SNES.
PRIORITY LIST:
preferably human.
if not, then kryptonian will do.
has fingers.
can shoot lasers from their eyes.

I'm a Christian. Not gonna lie. And I'm an apologeticist. So I use physical sciences and philosophical ideas to try and prove things otherwise debatable. Christianity, for example is one of those things I've been working at. And for all those who say that science and religion cannot coincide, your stupid. Go ahead and flame me, I'm cool with it. All I'm gonna say right now is that, whether you care or not, or whatever faith or belief you have, there must have been some kind of First Mover or Creator.

Why are you guys only looking at Descarte? He isn't the only philosopher in history to look at existance. Most of them do that. o.O? If you want to get into some really debatable philosophy, look into Hume. He's pretty much backwards of Descarte's fulcrum of thought. But Descarte is a rationalist and Hume an Empiricist. You guys are only looking at existance from a rational point of view. Empiricist look at it from a sensual point of view. You can't prove anything with just thought or just senses, thats why we have both. Try Kant if you want a happy medium.

I support this movement. Or re-movement rather. It would alleviate 51 violations that were so obviously false accusations, all heaved upon my weary conscience.
