Is Jesus God
I don't think understanding the Trinity is necessary to salvation. All that Jesus said is that we needed to believe he came in the flesh, died, and rose again. If we place our faith in him, then we are saved. Understanding the Godhead is cool, but not necessary.

(I want to caveat that by reminding people that even the demons believe...and tremble. Jesus wants you to "repent and follow [him]." That is where a lot of people get stuck. The following part.)

So perhaps we should backtrack and get into a grudge match about the holy trinity and go around and around etc etc...
That would be better for another thread rather than continuing to hijack this one.

That is a lie, and incorrect information that I want all on the board to understand is a lie. Simply puting faith in Jesus, does not mean you are saved. Even the Apostle Paul said: "I pummel my body and lead it as a slave, so that after I have preached to others, I myself should not become disapproved somehow." - 1 Corinthians 9:27. Yes even the apostle Paul was aware that he could become "disapproved" if he did not continue to adhere to God's standards.

None of this is beneficial.
When Defcon quotes something I did not say, then Defcon is a lier. This is a simple truth. Whether benificial or not, the simple fact of the matter is Defcon is willing to alter truth, which is never beneficial.

We can go on and on about differences in opinion, but Defcon quoted me as saying something I did not. This is where the issue arises.

You must be smoking the good stuff they smoke Colorado. What? Where are you getting this from? If I look through all my posts, I do not find anything you are saying!

Yawn. I try not to step on others here but here I go,.. this is the most boring and useless topics I have ever read on here.

Fun to watch people get all heated & opiouinated over belief. Not that anyone can be sure they is fact as religious beliefs are not prusumabale as facts in any court of law where I am from THANK GOODNESS!

Makes me feel as if I am back at my old meeting table though,.. back in a place I can't discuss. ;)

I try not to be argumentative, and try never to make personal attacks. I just present the facts and it is up to the other person to accept, question, or reject.

There are some things that are not important. Like I mentioned above, understanding the Godhead is not one of them.

But there are some things that are important and worth pursuing. Jesus said he is the way, the truth, and the life, and that no one comes to the Father but through him. So if someone says there are other ways to God, that is something worth going further on.

If someone believes in multiple gods, that is something worth talking about, because God said there are no other Gods.

This is "Anything Goes," after all.

Guys, I made this subtopic to make conjectures on bible quotes on events in our days. I even asked to keep it moderate. I did not intent you to go at each other.. We are not here to hate but to discuss all the parts that yould match. Why are you going so far and attacking others personally? I'm not gonna quote anything i find immature from you but i have to say iam quite astonished how this sub is beeing used. So once again please keep it moderate, and if you do not agree, write it in a manner way. Were not 3th graders anymore..

Also, this topic is not about us getting saved. I think a big portion of us wont be save anyway, since we all bear this ape-like behaviour, that makes us less of a human anyway. I can see it in the latest posts (not all of them- I'm not gonna call anyone).
It's just to have something you could relate too. I for my self so not think that i would be saved in any way, but to just see if there yould be some truth in this 2k years old book. And if so, I kind of know what will come.

I tell you guys now; no one (maybe one or another) gives a poop about your personal oppinion on religion. Because thats not the point here. So please keep it to yourself if it is not nonpartisan because it is toxic and childish. Just let the ppl who want to talk about it be and go spread your salt in a different place. Thanks.
