    Actually, you are very close to being correct. Faith is never produced by proofs and evidences. It is a special creation from God (For by grace are ye saved by faith, it is the gift of God.....) I use to be a non-believer. The last thing in the world that I wanted to be was a "Jesus Freak". God intervened in my life and had different plans for me. He created repentence and faith in me drawing me to Jesus Christ. Now, here I am. All my important life's questions have been answered. It isn't that there is insufficient evidences for the existence of God, it is that people don't want to believe. "God would cramp my style, it is my life and I want to live it my way" were my thoughts.

    Mine too.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    Check out the screen shot from the video.

    Great stuff! Propaganda 101.


    The guy also warns people of the evils of the National Geographic channel and the Discovery Channel. No joke.
    Propaganda 101, AKA brain washing 101. Scary thing is that it works on a selected few.

    My problem with you CTC is that you're not a "Jesus Freak", you are a "Bible Freak".

    In my personal beliefs, there is a big difference.

    People like you tend to preach the letter of the Bible at the expense of the spirit of the Word.

    In my heart, I feel this is not what Jesus intended his Church to be based on.

    Don't act like I'm looking for you. Anytime someone makes a comment about homosexuality or evolution, you come charging onto the scene beating your Bible like a borrowed mule, and trying to prove that you have all the answers.

    You, sir, are the biggest thread-killer since the invention of nylon stitching.

    Well, at least this is the simplistic way that I understand it.

    Anyway, what I find most interesting is what he did NOT say or do.

    He did not tell his followers to write three different accounts of his life and then bundle it up with 20+ other books, translate and re-translate and then tell people to pour over every word of it and live their lives by it.

    Christ's message was pretty simple. Do unto other as you would have them do unto you. Period.

    If you have to "study the Bible" on a regular basis, then you're missing the big picture, IMO.
    From a Christian's POV there is some fair criticism here. But let me offer some deeper perspective here about "study (of) the Bible".

    Christian's read the Bible for a variety of reasons. And they sometimes read the same passages over and over. Human nature is to a great degree ego and selfish driven, so we read the bible as spiritual exercise to refocus.

    Much like a recovering alcoholic finds it helpful or even necessary to attend AA meetings and read and study AA literature to stay sober, so do many Christians find it helpful or necessary to attend church or read the Bible so that they treat others as they wish to be treated and DONT "miss the big picture".

    Tight-Waist,
    Your argument is valid and I can accept your justification of daily / weekly Bible readings if the Bible readings are to refocus and/or inspire the reader.

    Just don't let the tail wag the dog.
