Either way... how am I supposed to go through some dead guy so I can see this "Father" dude? Does he take appointments?

John2:16 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.



Yeah... But since I don't believe in him (Or at least I'm really on the fence) To me he is just a dead guy. Don't you have a better way of convincing me other than posting a sentence thinking that it will create some eye opening experience for me?

glad to hear that you are at least on the fence.I can't convince you but if you really want to know,Matth 7:7 says Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find;knock and the door will be opened to you.For everyone who asks receives;he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks the door will open. Weather you believe in him or not ask in prayer for convincing I used to be an unbeliever too,I asked and god showed me what it is all about.Opened my eyes.To quote the famous song Amazing graze . I once was blind but now I see.You have nothing to loose by praying .weather you believe it or not. god believes in it and in you and he will answer.


Why am I getting the feeling that you are a half bald 6 foot 5 Albino, wearing a long white robe with a cross hanging from your neck bigger than Flavor-Flaves clock, with big red crazy eyes holding up a bible and shouting across the street at everyone that drives by in their horseless carriages to repent for their sins because the end is neigh?

Not that it's fact, but it is the image of you that appeared when I asked baby Jesus to turn on the image creator machine in my head.

I think I'll go back to being an Agnostic, this religion thing needs to be helped along with drug use, otherwise it's just too silly for reality.

Sounds like someone got their 'Way of the Master' starter kit in in the mail.
Nothing on the Internet is so serious it can't be laughed at, and nothing is as laughable as people who think otherwise.

I had to LOL you have a great imagination.
If you or anyone was out in a dessert and looked thirsty and I knew where there was water I would point the way.
I am only pointing the way to a wonderful fulfilling everlasting life.( And you don't need drugs) If one is not interested that's fine.It's a personal choice.I'll be praying for you.

How does anyone really know what or if "Jesus" said anything at all. Just because someone wrote a bunch stuff in a book called the "Bible". I smell a very funny and big practical joke here.

Well.. thanks.

Since you are praying for me, could you please type down exactly the prayer you will be saying for me? It would be a wonderful gesture by you to show that you are not just saying that you are praying for me.... while you are at it, could you also pray for my wife, two kids, dog, cat, fish as well. I understand if you would just like to pray for me, but if you could spare the time that would be swell.

In Philadelphia we call these people con-men. "and occasionally D-bags"

No one lives forever and if life were completely fulfilling there would be no progress. Stick to children they might buy what you are selling if you catch them early enough.

"I am only pointing the way to a wonderful fulfilling everlasting life.( And you don't need drugs) If one is not interested that's fine.It's a personal choice.I'll be praying for you."

it's pretty easy to have a wonderful fulfilling life without the fairy tales, as far as 'everlasting'.. not in your religion's concept of it thank you sir.. perfectly comfortable accepting that life as we know it ends at the end and my carbon will be shared around this earth (and hopefully further? space carbon sounds fun too!) for eternity.

please don't offer prayers to those who don't ask, it's creepy like a priest in the rectory alone with the altarboys.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ.
Romans 3:9 There is no one righteous not even one.
Romans5:6 You see,at the right time when we were still powerless.Christ died for the ungodly.Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man,though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.But God demonstrates his love for us in this: while we were still sinners Christ died for us.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death,but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 10:9 That if you confess with your mouth,"Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that you will be saved.For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
