He said, and I quote, “I am the son of God, and we are all God’s children”.[/quote]
Please show me the scripture where Jesus Christ stated that.
He was indeed quite special and told everyone many times. This is only one verse where he stated that no one gets to (Heaven) the father, except through him:
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me” (John 14:6)
It is also one verse (there are many others) which alienate people. No one really wants to think that there is only one way to do anything much less make it to Heaven.
That is your right in a free society. But, it is my right to point out where you are wrong relative to your quotes. In other words, believe what you want, but do so through knowledge and not ignorance.
And you must also believe that he was a liar, if you believe that he was just a man.
He never once tolerated sin. However, often he was forgiving of those who sinned. He would always caution those he healed or forgave not to sin again. There is no “little sin” to Christ. it is all simply sin. This is a difficult doctrine for many.
Sure, as OJ said “I’ll take a stab at it.” The video is meant to demean Christians. It’s perfectly alright to put a Rugby sticker on your car. It’s also fine to tell everyone you train with weights constantly. You can even tell folks that you meditate and follow the great Krima Gibna. But as soon as you claim that you are a Christian and display that in other ways, you are condemned by some.
This video simply plays to that central theme. It’s anti-Christian propaganda. It simply states, that it’s okay to be a Christian as long as you shut up about it.
[quote]The concept of a person who doesn’t nessecarily follow the Bible word for word, but still appreciates Jesus’s message and believes in his divinity?
If someone believes in Christs divinity but does not “follow the Bible” then I wonder how much he actually believes in Christs divinity.
Certainly the New Testament is pretty much about Christs coming to earth in human form.
