What is amazing is how you consistently credit posters (Christians- me) with words I haven't actually said.You missed the point as usual. We are talking about what's arrogant or not, saying 5.5 billion people in the world are wrong? you have the cheek to call others arrogant?
Considering all the things Christianity got wrong, you think it's right? why? We had this discussion before, apparently it's more important not to shave before mass than abolish slavery. It's more important for my wife to be virgin than accepting women as equal to men. It's more important to beat all the infants to death in Egypt cause the pharoah is corrupted. Why would you want to follow such a deity?
Most of the Christians i know of don't even believe in the above, remember what Pope said? belief in Christianity is not required to go to heaven, i am talking about your types, specially.
You still discount the fact that if God wanted him to follow his ways he could have done a better job than the Bible. He missed about 5.5 billion people, not a great hit rate and Constantine should be your real hero and not Jesus.
The original purpose of religion (religare as in to unite) is for human beings to get closer to something larger than ourselves. Each of us has our own perception of reality and how we can achieve this; all of these ideas are perfectly valid and make our world the diverse place it is. You guys have turned it into a popularity contest, precisely why i am against your variety or arrogance, you guys do great disserve to spirituality and specially Jesus.
What loss to have faith? we had this convo before, living your life in slavery and fear! be obidient to your master orelse...you lose your one and only life, based on a book clearly written by primitive men. You lose everything you have in life, your freedom, your conscience. Your own self..all this for a reward for somethng no one has ever seen or experienced.!
When did I call anyone here arrogant?
In saying that we believe Jesus is THE WAY to God, that is what is taught in the Bible. Basic truth. That is not arrogance, just because we know it to be the truth.
I don't care how many times you have read the Good Book- it is clear it's a chore for you, and not edifying for you.
If you want the Bible to come alive for you, go back to Jesus.
The Holy Spirit allows the Bible to inspire you, and passages will hit you like never before.
Without the Spirit, you will be a nit-picker and bored as!!
