    Is that how people show their appreciation for what he [Jesus] did by using the name of an ancient fertility goddess [Easter] and using the symbols for fertility the rabbit and eggs on that day.? That’s what (2 Corinthians 6:14-18) warns about. “Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers. and to separate yourselves and quit touching the unclean thing”
    The origin of things do matter to God.

    They always portray him either as a helpless baby or a lifeless body when he is actualy now a warrior King. “Let your Kingdom come”

    Revelation 1:13 – 15 ………..someone like a son of man , clothed in a garment that reached down to his feetand wearing a golden sash around his chest. 14. Moreover, his head and his hair were white as white as wool, as snow, and his eyes were like a fiery flame. 15. and his feet were like fine cooper when glowing in a furnace……

    I think CNN is going through a near death experience too.

    “I believe the story because I want it to be true”

    Faith = is the assurded expectation of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld. (Hebrew 11:1) True faith is not credulity, that is, a readiness to believe something without sound evidence or just because a person wants it to be so. Genuine faith requires basic or fundamental knowledge, acquaintance with evidence, as well as heartfelt appreciation of what the evidence indicates. Thus, knowledge, the Bible says that it is “with the heart” that one excercises faith. (Romans 10:10)

    Read Genesis 2:7 ……and the man became a living soul. ( a person, a living breathing creature ) you don’t have a soul, you are a soul.
    Like Glenn says “don’t take my word for it but do your own homework”

    @Angry………”they spoke of being in sheol=paradise ”

    Don’t be angry but you are wrong Sheol = “the grave or pit” which some translate as hell. Hades the Greek word and Sheol in Hebrew and in English “Hell”

    Do you really want a truthful answer? or do you just want to believe what you believe?

  • April 18, 2014 at 9:23am

    @Clown………I agree with almost everthing you say except about that God doesn’t give a hoot whether you beleive in him or not.

    God’s will is that all sorts of people should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth. 1 Timothy 2:4
    also John 3:16 “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.

    Other than that you are correct a 3 year old brain and heavily sedated could have seen almost anything. It’s all about $elling books and movie ticket$. I think I remember that the father was a pastor. The parents should be ashamed.

    @Thruthdetector………..”God created man in his own image, which would tell me he’s not a giant in stature. ”

    Isaiah 40:22 There is One who dwells above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers. He is stretching out the heavens like a fine gauze. And he spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
    Isaiah 66:1 This is what Jehovah says: “The heavens are my throne, and the earth is my footstool….( now that’s GIANT in stature) But you are right there is a lot of book $elling here.

    We are just going around in circles here so I’m going to end this the way I began.

    John 5:28,29…..Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his [Jesus'] voice and come out.
    (notice Jesus said “come out”, not down.)
    Everything else about this story is to $ell books and movie tickets. period $$$$$$$$$

    If bother to read some of the accounts they didn’t always recognize Jesus. That’s because he didn’t always appear to them in the same form each time. He appeared to Thomas and some of the disciples with the wounds because thomas said “unless I see in his hands the print of the nails and stick my hand into his side, I will certainly not believe.” 8 days later his disciples were again indoors and Thomas with them. Jesus came an although the doors were locked, stood in their midst. Jesus said to him “Because you have seen me have you believe?” Happy are those who do not see yet believe.”(John 20:24 – 29)
    But in Luke 24:13 – 31 They did not recognize him he appeared then disappeared from them.

    @4Ever………”“spirit” a “ghost”, ”
    There is a difference between a spirit and a ghost. A spirit creature is living and a ghost is an apparition. There is also a difference between the spirit and the soul. The soul is the person a living breathing creature and the spirit is that life force.
    ” But that is over your head” as you say.
    Psalms 146:4 His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; In that day his thoughts do perish.
    Like I said in one of the earlier posts read (Ecclesiastes 3:18 – 22) also 9:5 reads For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all,……
    Jesus compared death to sleep an unconscious state when he spoke about his friend Lazarus. Jesus said; “Lazarus our friend has gone to rest, but I am journeying there to awaken him from sleep.”
    Like “you” the disciples didn’t understand at the time, they thought he has gone to rest he will get well. Jesus then had to tell them “Lazarus has died”
    Many people here don’t even think Jesus died. They think when he was killed he when to heaven right away and later on the 3rd day united with his body and 40 days later went to heaven with that same body. That is not what the scriptures say at all. Jehovah God resurrected Jesus (who died) three days later as a spirit creature just as he was before in the heavens. “but that is over your head, right?”

    @4EverHis…..”Jesus had “flesh and bone” in His Resurrected body.”

    No …..but If you say so,…… I already answered that earlier too. People seem to have preconceived ideas and are not willing to look at the facts and do some work. If that’s what you want to beleive, I guess I’m not going to change your mind here. Go back and look at the earlier post and look up the verses yourself.

    As for Stephen because they hadn’t even begun stoning him yet when he looked up to heaven and caught sight of God’s glory, it was likely a vision.
    (Acts 7:54 – 60)

    @4EverHis……”My goodness, He ate fish, He broke bread during those 40 days…sheesh…”
    you also ignored the Scripture I quoted but anyway. I you look back to Genesis angels in materialized bodies also ate and had offspring too.
    Genesis 6:1 -4 the angels or the sons of the true God, bore sons called the Nephilim. Genesis 18: three angels visit Abraham and eat and drink also Genesis 19: Lot is visited by 2 angels and they eat also. “sheesh”

    @Ted_Baxter…..”Greenwood – I would suggest you do some serious in-depth bible study instead of shooting your mouth off about things you know nothing of.”

    Ted……….I don’t know even where to start …………you have no clue.
    You say when Revelation was written it wasn’t about future events.The first 3 chapters are about the 7 congregations but chapters 4 – 22 were future events many of which are yet to occur. Maybe you should be doing some in-depth study yourself, Ted.

    He only lies when his lips are moving.

    @Mom for freedom……….”I know people who died and came back.”

    I’m sure they didn’t really die,,,,,, are you saying they were resurrected?

  • April 17, 2014 at 12:57pm

    @Jplay…….”but it does say that we will be changed in an instant ”

    Yes, but who is being spoken to? The holy ones, the anointed, saints, Little flock, the bride, the 144,000 are the ones that will be co-rulers with Christ in heaven. They rule over the earth as kings and priest with Christ for 1,000 years.
    Revelation 1:6 & 5:10 & 6:11 & 7:3,4 & 14:1 -5 & 20:4 – 6 & 22:5
    Luke 12:32 “Have no fear “little flock” for your Father has approved of giving you the Kingdom.
    Luke 22:29 and I make a covenant with you, just as my Father has made a covenant with me, for a Kingdom.
    1 Corinthians 15:22 – 24 ……..Next, the end, when he [Jesus] hands over the Kingdom to his God and Father……..
    Matthew 22:14 For many are clled but few are chosen.
    2 Timothy 2:12 …..we shall rule together as kings.
