Another point of view

    I have just read thru a looong debate on whether or not you believe in Jesus.As I have stated before I am not a practicing christian,but I have no reason to doubt that he actually existed & that he was a good man who advocated goodness,kindness & honesty.
    But miracles? Well I don't know!You have to remember the craziness of the times when they nailed people to crosses & left them to die slowly,or fed them to lions & other exotic animals just for sport.
    Also there was no media to report on anything.Everything was passed down by word of mouth.Oh! Except when Moses brought the tablets down from the mountain.AT LAST! SOMETHING IN WRITING!
    But having said all that,even if you don't believe in Jesus/God,at least believe in what he reportedly stood for.Goodness,love of other human beings,love of the planet,& have a conscience.And that,my freinds is the most I have said about religion in 40 years!

    He was more that just a good man He was the only perfect God/Man:

    John:31 But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

    Yeah,so you can quote the bible.I simply gave my point of view.

    how can he be god and man at the same time? how does being half/half make him perfect?

    Hi Randy :) i'm also christian but i also have lots of questions, feel free to answer or ignore :)

    I am not saying he was a god.I am saying he was a man.
    For all of his 'Miracles' didn't he eat when he was hungry,Drink when he was thirsty,rest when he was tired.And,if he wore them,put his pants on one leg at a time like the rest of us?
    Another question; The whole story seems to happen around the middle east.What about the rest of the world?Surely someone of this omnipotence could spread the word further than that.
    Headless Man

    You should know He is the son of God, born of the virgin Mary, so He's not half man but had man's limitations wile on earth.

    True Tommyh
    But as christians we tend to be told he is half god and half man like Randy said. I'm trying to understand what it really means. :)
    Headless Man

    He's not man but a form of God, Jesus the man form of God, not half man.
    That's good enough for me. Knowing what's right and what's wrong and choosing right does not require membership adherence to any organized group, in my opinion. Some people find it easier by doing so and that's fine.
    To question is good, to blaspheme is not. You will have to search your own soul to see if there's a place for Jesus in your heart.

    What blasphemy??????
    I asked a question & gave a point of view.Is that blasphemy??
    If this was the Spanish inquisition I may have a case to answer,but it's not,This is 2011 & we do enjoy freedom of speech in our countries.Don't we?

    Tommyh, lighten up, I didn't mean to imply that you were a blasphemer. My response was directed towards the masses.
    God is defined as divine nature, instilled in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus had physical human nature wrapped around Him while here on earth. He constantly showed us we need to depend on the Father to meet all of our needs.
    Just as we are physical human nature, wrapped around a spiritual nature, fully dependent on God for our life, here and for eternity, whether we know it or not.
