that doesn't leave much room for worshiping or following or believing in another god does it?
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him (not any other god) shall not parish but have eternal life."
parenthesis are my own addition.
"That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, 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.~Romans 10:9,10~
doesn't leave much room to say Jesus was just a prophet...
Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: “Rulers and elders of the people! 9 If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a man who was lame and are being asked how he was healed, 10 then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. 11 Jesus is
“‘the stone you builders rejected,which has become the cornerstone.’[a]
12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
bold was added by me to show that according to the bible there is no other way to salvation. Yes, God is love Yes, God loves all mankind, Yes God wants EVERYONE to believe and be saved.
God did not leave room for other means of getting to heaven. No, God will not save you from eternal damnation if you do not believe in your heart he is Lord. No, God does not share his glory with lesser gods. No you can not worship the God of the bible and other gods and say you worship the same God as I do. Because if you truly believed in the God of the bible you would not have any need nor desire to entertain others.
and in the face of those who point to you and mock you...who pick out certain part of your faith of the bible and spit it in your face making you out to be a bad person and an even worse Christian (in the modern sense of the term) In the face of the world slipping out of control, in the face of morals being stripped down to make way for "human rights" in the face of babies dying before they even had a chance to defend themselves, in the face of the marriage God set up being turned into a mockery, in the face of fires, and storms, and global warming....in the face of everything bad in this world
and in the end feeling as if you are alone in your faith surrounded by the brokenness of the world...
remember..but for such a time as this...
as the 144.000 of Revelation remind us, there is a set number of people on this earth that have your faith, and multitudes already in heaven.
and the world is still spinning because God's work and our work is not done, not until he claims his last into his hand. Not until his seal is stamped on those that are his.
Yes, God is love
Yes, we are to share his love
Yes, the world will mock you, point at you, scold you, and it will only get worse
Stand firm because our God has overcome the world!
We are his people, We can not be Shaken,
I don't fight with my knowledge, I don't stand up for my faith with words of others..if you are going to quote the bible to me, to prove "Christianity" a farce to make me look bad, then you better know just what your saying and you better have your facts about the bible straight.....Don't spew the bible in my face and expect me to fold my hands and take it, No the only thing I can fight with is God's word, it's what Jesus fought with when tempted by Satan in the desert. It's sharper then a double edge sword and it's the armor of God.
so. back. off. this. whole. Christians. are terrible. trip. and live the lifestyle you so passionately preach...tolerance and love. at least I don't pretend to tolerate everyone and every belief. I respect them and I love them as a person but I don't have to agree with them nor do I pretend too.
Hello, my name is "child of the one true King"
