I am a humble follower of Jesus Christ. The Word. The Creator of Heaven and earth. The Babe, born to the Virgin , Mary over 2000 years ago.
I suppose in the eyes of the worlds religions that would make me a Christian, but in the eyes of some of my more dogmatic brethren, I am a heretic and only worthy of scorn, because I believe that Jesus Christ has visited man in these days and continues to guide and direct his affairs in the modern era. I believe that I can converse with God as can all of us. We are all children of God, according to the bible. I believe that God loves each and every one who reads this message, and, no matter what your system of belief is, you are loved and treasured by your Father.
I also believe we can all work together to overcome the evil in this world. PLEASE, can we all stop the bickering and fighting, and commence to work together for all of God's children.
I believe in Jesus Christ, I have accepted him as my Savior .... and I'm a Mormon. (the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints)
” humble follower of Jesus Christ. (vanity)”
Irony is pretty much lost on you, isn’t it??
I’m reading the rest of it now, but regarding the first line, the word “humble” should never be used by a person unless to describe someone other than themself.
—I have faith in him as the Son of God. —
What does that mean, exactly?
—I suppose in the eyes of the worlds religions that would make me a Christian, but in the eyes of some of my more dogmatic brethren, I am a heretic...—
Just to be clear here, I hate Mormonism but consider mormons its biggest victims, not the object of my hate, which is the belief system itself.
That said, the remarks you made prior to that statement do line up with Christian belief to a point. That point is that some of the wording is vague enough to have meanings that are definitely NOT Christian. IOW, I’d need more detail about what you mean.
And the Devil is in the details. Literally.
I believe in a Jesus Christ who IS the path back to the Father:
"Jesus told him, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." --John 14:6
Well that’s great. I think it’s wonderful that you profess your Christianity....
But this is “News/Activism” how?
—no matter what your system of belief is, you are loved and treasured by your Father. —
I agree with that. I’ll even add to it. If one actually accepts the blood of Jesus as savior for the remission of their sins and confesses Him as Lord of their life, they will enjoy an eternity in heaven with their Creator. Without His love and sacrifice, that offer would not be made. And we all get to make that choice personally.
—because I believe that Jesus Christ has visited man in these days —
I’d disagree with you on that one. Unless you can convince me the second coming happened and I missed it.
You had me until, mormon.
“...Irony is pretty much lost on you, isnt it??”
Heh heh ...
Ha! Thumbs up.
Yes my humility does not allow me to call attention to just how humble I am
Isaiah 44:6: "Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God."
Isaiah 44:8 "Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any."
Isaiah 43:10 "Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me."
There can be only one.
Frankly, I could give a rat’s behind what your religious beliefs are; I come to FR to read about POLITICAL news, NOT anyone’s religious views. Over the years, this constant barrage of religious postings are becoming more and more frustrating, and to those who scream, “Then why click on the post????” I answer; because scrolling through the news feed, I am accosted by so many of these threads, today seems to be my breaking point where I no longer care if I hurt your feelings by posting my thoughts!
Can’t those of you who feel the need to constantly (and oh so ‘humbly’)fight amongst yourselves over your religious views do it somewhere else? I come here less and less because of this annoyance, and I am sure I am not alone!
Its obvious you dont have enough humility to not call yourself humble
My only flaw is my humility. If I were not so humble I would be perfect.*
*Yeah, I know. You’ve heard it before. But still...
