I don't think you know what Christian means. Don't, act like it's okay to say "no I do know what it means.." Because, I'm arian, but you understand, I could be german, but like, right, nazis are not german, they're monsters. okay, you were gunna say, blue and yellow don't look really cute together? okay, blonde hair blue eyes, not what you thought, it's impressive, my point was, fucking no one asked that, and we don't, say anemic hair, is actually blonde, you SUCK, I say to those people...
so like OKay, when Christian meant, Righteous before GOD, Righteous, loving, but you know, wrong or right, matters... you get that nazis said, this is CHristian? it isn't.
there is a god, called the Christian god. but of course the christian god would be the god of the dead... and the god of the dead is oldest god there is... the dead can hear your thoughts, they said in ancient greece? no, well, Hades hears your breathing... sounds like WILL, the will god?
but you said, EVERY time someone, christian said, god, they meant, that person, called God, sometimes... God's son wasn't Jesus, psycho, it was Lucifer,.. ask him what beautiful means though... I'd do whatever he told me to, why?
a bible is a baby book, you make one yourself, of the gospels you LOVE, because there are MILLIONS of gospels, in the world, millions, and they're about Love, and Faith, and Heroes, and Children, and God...
King James was a HERETIC, way to stay educated. With a bible cut together by a master criminal and sociopath, a MONSTER
King James is a MONSTER
you don't know what Christian is, don't ask any more stupid questions
I'm gunna teach you something. A girl in class says something like "or like it(a swastica) backwards is like, Japanese for prosPerity or something.." like it hadn't meant that... NAZI that girl is a NAZI, when monsters carve it into their FOREHEADS, so they can kabal, and you torture others, WITH them, you get there's no backwards? she gets TAUGHT to say it, and call you ignorant?
No I'm calling YOU ignorant. Christian means good. God means Love. It has only EVER meant love!
He is my prize. He changed my heart of stone into a heart of flesh. Even though I struggle with sin in a sense every day, in my heart of hearts I desire to do his will gladly! Its like being set free from sin's power and hating God to finally actually desiring to love and follow his law.
I believe his true sheep hear his voice and follow him. No true Christian with actual saving faith can stray for too long without the Lord intervening. Professing Christians that don't really make God a priority at all in their lives will have a sad wake up call when he returns. (Matt 25:31–46)
I'm Christian, and I believe in God and stuff, but I don't pray every day or go to church or read the Bible. To me, He's just there. I don't think about God much. I pray when I'm worried about someone or when someone I know has died. I tried reading the Bible but couldn't really get into it. There aren't any churches nearby as far as I know (mostly because I haven't looked for them). There are a bunch of different branches of Christianity and they each have their own church, and I haven't bothered to do my research as to what branch believes. I just believe that there is a God, He created everything, there is a Heaven and Hell and a Devil, there is an afterlife, and we will be judged when we die. Christianity just matches my beliefs the closest lol
So TL,DR: God isn't that important to me in my daily life, but I do believe in Him.
Very important. God speaks through his word. What God tells me as a christian to do, makes sense to me to follow. I believe that the guidance and commands laid out by Jesus/God/Holy spirit, have formed humanity's morality over time, to an extent where these commandments are seen as common sense. In my day to day life I have hope of an eternity far greater than my temporary tenancy here. I have seen the intricate workings of his plan in the rear-view mirror of hindsight. In those moments; terrible moments, happy moments, or even moments of absolute mediocrity at their time of occurrence.. Looking back upon them, I can see just how significantly important, the once unimportant things really were to the process of my life. I know the past occurrences which I had no control over, where my own decisions made very little difference for the outcome, would have most certainly soured my present/future, if I had been put in a place of influential choice over them, when I consider what my goals were at those points. I came to belief via no encouragement from any authority figure in my life. Only this year have I started going to church. 6 Years ago I picked up a bible I was given for free when I was 8, and had since then ignored. After reading it for myself word for word, I came to the conclusion and choice to believe in Jesus.
What exactly you think it is that God commanded you to do -- or whether he commanded you to do anything at all -- depends on which scriptures you accept and which tradition you follow. A Christian will perforce consider Jewish scriptures the "Old Testament" and interpret them in light of his own less ancient scriptures.
Outside of what Jesus commanded, Love God and your neighbor, nothing. Everything else about our life is our own prerogative. However, I wasn't raised to believe that the Old Testament was "irrelevant", and having a better understanding of it has helped me better understand the New Testament. In my case, we observed the Jewish holidays, the Sabbath, eat port or shellfish, and drained the blood from our meat.
I didn't say the Old Testament was irrelevant to Christians. Where did you get that from?
I would point out, however, that you did seem to be raised to regard well over half the New Testament as irrelevant. Unless your mother is actually Jewish. In which case the decision in Acts 15 doesn't apply to you, and a strict reading of the NT obliges you to observe the law as do other Jews.
Talking to way too many people who think so for one reason or another.
She isn’t Jewish, but did attend a synagogue during the evenings, as well as church Sunday mornings. I’d probably say her perspective would be similar to that of a Messianic Jew, and looked at Jewish tradition as symbolic of what would come with Christ.
Like I said though, we didn’t observe this out of obligation. She saw this as another form of worship, and does it of her own desire to do so.
I wouldn’t say the New Testament was irrelevant in my background. Far from it. I would say that, at the time, that portion of the Bible got more attention from the church than the Old Testament. Whereas a lot of the Old Testament was laying the groundwork for why the New Testament exists.
A non-Christian gentile who, for some reason, accepts the authority of Jewish scripture might read it and come away finding himself responsible for only the relatively simple obligations imposed by Gen 9:1-17.
Obviously God means a lot to me. However I don't always show it and that it is something I think many Christians take for granted. One doesn't always have God in mind when it comes to decision making too. You're supposed to love him with your whole being and if you were to ask a Christian to choose between his/her spouse and God then it would actually be a tough decision when it should be an easy task, It's difficult to explain sorry. It's like, hard sometimes to love God more than a pet or a family member, if that makes any sense. One would think that since God gave you everything, it would be easy to love him but it's not really that simple. I say I love God but do I really?
That's an interesting way of seeing it. Maybe we think He only govern's this world/planet because of what stands in the Bible, but what if there were different worlds out there, each with it's own Bible. I can speculate even further by saying that all those Bibles are part of something even bigger like how the different books make up the Bible but all the Bibles together make up something else.
I don't really know how to answer, in a sense it's that little voice in the back of my mind that says "don't do it, you're going to get caught" when I'm about to do something I shouldn't. When I hear it I get the distinct impression I'm being watched, if only by my own conscience.
