Your comment reminds me of soldiers of wars gone by calling for mamma.
I read about roman, and Greek soldiers even calling for mamma in the far past.

Maybe we should call "Ghost Busters" for what it's worth... :kez:

I don't recall Jesus saying "call on me"....as in for help, guidance, salvation, or help picking lottery numbers or other contrived bullshit... :unsure:

He did say "believe in me", or so I am told...but what exactly does that mean? I wasn't there...he didn't speak directly to me or someone I trust......I do not intend to plan my life or my death on 2nd hand, or 3rd hand or as in this case,.....5000th hand information. I'm just going to wait and see and come what may,.......roll with it; just as I have with everything in life.

Most the Bible is simple, people choose to make it complicated.
I'm in no means an authority on it, but I do know one thing, you follow his law without any of your extras like people want, and you will be alright.
Repent, go to church faithfully with gladness in your heart, take the lords supper, spread the word, and try to live a good life by being an example to others. That's all he wanted.

The guy in the video has set himself up as a prophet of sorts, there will be no prophets after me Jesus said. No man can tell you the end of the world either in the case of bible stuff, he will come as a thief in the night.

Me, I don't follow any faith, just have studied a few. I really admire some stuff in Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism even, you can have the following part though if you don't believe in them religiously.

Sort of funny, thinking about my Grandparents... My Grandmother was Lutheran, and while not a 'bible thumper' by any means, she maintained her faith.

My Grandfather, on the other hand, was an Atheist that would have no problem admitting that to anyone who wanted to enter into discussion about religion.

How those two managed to stay married until death I sometimes question... :laugh:

I think Luther tried to get it right, but failed to do so, maybe he thought the basics was more revolutionary than people could handle.

being a skeptic I am it's hard for me to believe, but just as hard to believe the theory of a big bang which still has flaws like where did the stuff that made the big bang happen come from.
It's the same argument as a God/god, something from nothing is still nothing. But we are here, so something had to start it all off right, could be an all powerful being, or beings, or maybe we are just not real at all, and think so. :woot:

What if the Universe has existed 'forever,' and will continue to exist 'forever?' Not in the exact state that it's in at this particular moment, since we know everything changes, but I don't think it's too far fetched to assume that the Universe as we know it has existed for infinity, and will continue to exist for infinity, in one form or another.

The main problem with the human mind is, is that it has a very difficult time calculating 'infinity'... Basically, we cannot compute this.

You have the same argument for God, he is infinite, and we can't fathom his eternal existence.
I don't think anything is forever except nothingness, even atoms decay.

While atoms may decay, I don't think it's possible for anything to just 'disappear'...

I mean, the mass of the entire Universe would always remain constant.

Atoms break down to smaller bits till there is nothing we can see, or define, sub atomic particles with no base for building.
So nothing is nothing as we really are nothing except to ourselves.

John 14:6 New King James Version (NKJV)
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Acts 4:12 New King James Version (NKJV)
12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

I believe somebody was asking about why it is only about Jesus. It is not about religion. In fact, and this may surprise some people, God really hates religion, (including what some call Christianity)
This is because it is about a relationship. People actually know God. They have met Him, talked to Him, some have actually seen Him. And this can apply to anyone. There are cases where atheists have demanded to God that if He is there, to prove His existence. I have met a man who lives in my city who was a muslim kurd living in Iraq when he encountered Jesus face to face. (He now has a church of his own where he preaches to a largely Arabic congregation.) Those who seek Him will find Him.
