These are some of the things you should think about before I return.
For false science;
Why do you dishonestly teach that conscious/life is a product of chemicals coming together millions of years ago - randomly in a puddle after it was hit by the lightning bolt.....when you cannot even demonstrate it a laboratory with a thousan ...[text shortened]... er scrutiny at all.
What,s happening with you - that you would defend falsity to the death.
Why do you falsely teach that all the dead and rotting Christians in the grave will some day come back to life.
I include the resurrection of all men in my teaching because Jesus demonstrated that He can resurrect others and even Himself. So His word on this I trust. He demonstrated
authority in this area.
Why do you falsely teach that blood and confession takes away sins - when in fact we must at least give up our sinning natures to begin with - by way of embracing true knowledge and removing ignorance which purifies the heart and mind - and in this way we advance towards love of God. (no person, place or thing can take away your sins) if you don't stop sinning.
I think you are talking about two different things in my Christian teaching:
1.) Cleansing from the guilt of sins is one matter - redemption.
2.) Freeing from the power of sin is another - sanctification, transformation.
Both are crucial to my teaching of the Christian life.
Why do you falsely teach that THOU SHALT NOT KILL means that you can slaughter millions of animals and cause them untold suffering - in the name of religion.
I teach that we should avoid being cruel to animals. Afterall, it is clear that God's salvation has in mind some of the families of animals on earth too.
On a relative scale a human life is worth more to God than an animal's life, though we should not be cruel to animals.
Why do you falsely teach that each person can take birth in this world only once - when the truth is we can take birth as many times as necessary - until we have developed love of God - and it is only then we can return to God and not before.
My authority is the Bible. And the Bible does not teach any kind of reconciliation to God through successive reincarnate births.
So I believe anyone putting their trust in successive reincarnate births as other creatures or other people, will be disappointed.
Why do you falsely teach that your newly created religion is the only religion - when hundreds of thousand of years ago - millions of persons worshipped and loved God by taking instructions from the Vedic teachings - which are the true authority presenting perfect knowledge.
The Bible accounts for people grasping elements of universal truth outside of the covenant community.
I believe that the Judge of all the world will do justly. I don't think God needs to sit at my feet while I teach Him a thing or two about multiculturalism.
The thought is absurd to me, that God's hands are somehow tied because He has spoken essentially to man in one book - the Bible. I believe He is definite but not narrow.
Why do you falsely teach that the Bible is the word of God - when it was compiled by animal killers, womanisers, intoxicators and politicians who fabricated and invented most of it..
I don't believe any author of any book of the Bible was perfect. Only Jesus Christ the Son of God, was and is perfect.
The Bible has a Model of such a Person in history. I see no other belief system with as convincing a historical model of perfect humanity as the Bible's Jesus of Nazareth.
Why do you falsely teach that Genesis/Adam /Eve/Serpent/ 6500yrs old universe - Is the true explanation of creation when it is clearly not.
I don't believe the Bible specifies the age of the universe.
The lack of surprise in Eve when the serpent spoke may indicate that there are things which we are not aware of at this early time.
I am not fully decided yet. Presently I am exploring some explanations for the lack of surprise in the woman because a speaking creature.
No hurry. I came to trust Genesis after realizing that it was taken seriously by Jesus Christ. Since His intigrity is unquestioned to me, I decided that if it was good for Him it must be good.
Why do you falsely teach that Moses was talking to the Supreme Lord when it is clear he did not a- and it was just fabricated by play/writes.
I don't believe we "falsly" teach that God spoke to Moses.
