Most misunderstood word in that verse is SO. Properly translated it means "in the same way."

More properly, "in this way/in this manner", but you're completely correct that this gets misinterpreted as God loves you "Thiiiiiiiis" much, which isn't there in the Greek at all.

It's usually based off of the people who follow the religion, or the religion's history in my experience. (ex: Crusades,inquisition,religious films being annoyingly closed minded or stupid)Also the amount of conversion theme of the religion might be annoying for nonspiritual people.

Then they too should know no one has gone to "hell"(as in the lake of fire) yet. All souls return to the Father. The parable of Lazarus and the rich man is a good example of what takes place when the flesh dies.

That's not completely what I meant. Even if you do "study the Bible", if you're not saved you can't understand the word of God. "But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." (1 Corinthians 2:14)

Couldn't anyone say that same thing about their holy book?

"This book makes no sense and sounds silly"
"Oh, you just can't fully and properly understand it because your spiritual eyes are closed/you've been blinded by the devil/you haven't received the wisdom and guiding of the Holy Spirit/etc"

In my opinion, it's something people say to try and explain away skepticism of their beliefs. It's also a catch-22. I can't become a Christian if it makes no sense to me, but it won't make sense to me until after I become a Christian.

Christianity isn't practiced that way and I know you know better. All are accepted and to the bible is there to guide Christians in their daily life. You don't have read the bible to become a Christian, but in being one the bible will take on a different meaning for you as your perspective has changed. Much the same as once you understand all the mechanical aspects of a car, you change how you deal with car ownership and operation. Think of the bible as Chilton's for Christians :)

Damn, you caught me...sort of :) in a sense, you're right. One doesn't need to read the Bible to become a Christian. But the other part of what I said, I still stand by. I have heard some Christians say that sort of thing, that skeptics don't believe what the Bible says simply because they are "spiritually blind". Also, I don't know what Chilton's is :(

Ahh, the ad hominem. I'm just a dumb illiterate putz. How "christian" of you. BUT you cannot answer my questions.

1. So what about those he sends to hell because they didn't follow an arbitrary rules he set up?
2. And if he died to pay for sins, why do these people get punished for them in hell? Kinda like double jeopardy ...

And if you want to pray for me, that's great ... but your faith is built on a very shaky foundation because you cannot defend it.

"The power of sin is the law" and WHO gave us that law? Did god HAVE to set up the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? Why did he? He knew Adam and Eve would partake because he built them in his image right? In his image isn't how they looked, it was how they thought and the desires of their heart -- to be in control. The serpent tempted them in the way god made them -- with a desire to be gods, knowing good and evil. How did the serpent know that?

And please don't fall into the trap of "he set it up so he could show his love and forgiveness" ... that's like saying he's an arsonist that gets to put out his own fires and be the hero. We put people in jail for that.

Answer my questions.

I didn't call you "illiterate" as in you're unintelligent or "dumb". You called yourself those things. I said that you don't know the Word of God, and from my estimation as someone who does know the Word very well, you don't. I would try to teach you and help you, but it's clear to me and probably everyone else on this site that you're not here to learn. You're here to cause trouble and to antagonize. "Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine..." (Matthew 7:6)

I'll go ahead and field those for you:

1. Starts with a false premise. God gives everyone the choice of where the responsibility of their own actions will take them "Sending" would be like saying the teacher "gave" me an F instead of I earned that F.
2. "And if he died to pay for sins..." is a form of paying it forward. Its penance for what you did prior to your accepting him. If you never do, than see #1 above, that was your choice.

What is often missed in theological discussions is the simple phrase "free will". It's undeniable that we have that from the day we make our first decision. Even Adam and Eve had free will,

Very well said, but I would quibble with one part. You said Adam and Eve would eat the fruit because they were made in the image of God, and therefore wanted to be in control. I'm not sure if that is correct, because I've never heard anyone say that. I would argue that he knew they would eat the fruit because of his omniscience. They were made in the image of God but were lesser beings. The serpent tempted them with the prospect of becoming like God (a higher being, if not fully gods themselves).

Your line about an arsonist who puts out his own fires and be the hero was awesome! When it comes to the tree, I've used the analogy of a gun. Why would God put something within their reach that he knew full well they would use to ultimately kill themselves? The argument about free will is often used at this point. I would say that there are times when, for reasons of safety, it's acceptable to interfere with someone's free will. If there's a handgun on a table and a four year old is about to pick it up, no parent in their right mind would let that child pick it up and play with it. They would interfere with that child's free will and take the gun away so they can't hurt themselves or someone else. But the parent is doing it out of love. It wouldn't be loving to just sit back and let the child play with the gun and say "well, I shouldn't step in. After all, he/she has free will. I can't interfere with that."

TL;DR one does not simply give someone the tool of their destruction and then blame them when they destroy themselves and everyone else, but that's none of my business

No one can follow the law without falling short. MAN asked for the law, God gave it. No one is completely "dead" yet. Hell as you know it does not yet exist and no one will go to "hell" without choosing to. In the end you will have a choice...side with God or side with that loser satan...i don't personally believe many (if any) will choose the loser.

No reading material / references will change your mind if you are already convinced there is no God / Satan etc. For any literature sent will be countered by anti-theist literature,.. which leads to flaming. This is one of those memes that resonate with many, based on views / UVs,... and best left alone by those who don't. It's like a political meme,... you agree or don't. If I don't agree,..

Sorry Mr Invicta but you misjudge me. I'm not "already convinced" of anything. It may not appear so but I do believe in the good that organised religion can do both for individuals and communities I asked our friend Dick for the source of his interpretation because it intrigues me. I have never, as far as I'm aware, deliberately flamed anyone, but, I'm sorry if you use the internet to extol any point of view you must surely expect to be challenged. The day that intellectual discourse stops then it's the end for civilisation, read 1984.

I have read Brave New World and Huxley's dystopian vision has many very pertinent warnings about eugenics and genetic engineering that we would all do well to heed. But my mention of 1984 was to highlight what happens when debate and discourse are stifled. Winston Smith's job was to help reduce the English language to 98 key words, making political and philosophical development impossible. I haven't had time today to visit your recommended site but I will do.

This meme has made my day. Honestly, Jesus did not die just for us believers, but for the world. This is a fact that far too many people have forgotten about. And the fact that even Atheists and Norse Pagans have upvoted this makes it all the better. It feels really good to know that there are people out there who are not afraid to announce to the world what Jesus has done for the world that we have taken for granted.

Who did Jesus hang out with? Who were the people He spent most time with? Tax collectors, Prostitues, homosexuals. Jesus spent his time with sinners, because he looked into their hearts. He was not a Pharisee, He on many occasions spoke of how it is not good to be like a pharisee. Tell me, why does it speak in the bible of how you shouldn't look down on others, or judge them? So by judging people who sin, something to keep in mind is this: We were once sinners too (christians). Since Jesus died on the Cross for us, and we accepted him as our saviour, we sin, but we have been saved and given eternal life. But this doesn't mean for us to look down our noses at people still stuck in a sinful lifestyle...Only God shall judge.

We were "once sinners" and we continue to be. We always have been and always will be. But that is why God sent his son to die for us to forgive our sins. Sin was punishable by death, and He died a death that we deserved. "Greater love has no one than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends (John 15:13)" My point is, you said that we once were sinners, and that is true. However the phrase "once was/were" implies that we are not anymore. I agree with what you have said, but the phrase "once were sinners" is not the way it should have been written. Like I said, it implies that we are no longer sinners. Mankind has always been sinners and will continue to be sinners. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish have eternal life. (John 3:16)"

That is old testament, which defines the law, the punishment and the atonement for sin. It set the framework. It illustrates the difference between God's perfection and power and man's sinful nature.
Jesus said he came to fulfill the law (Matthew 5:17) so that while the law is still in place, the punishment for sin (which those things are) would be on him if one repents and turns from it. Christians (followers of Christ) are not called to kill, we are called to love others as we love ourselves (Matthew 22:37-40).

Writing my own bible? I think you are referring to the church and King James who cherry picked certain books while excluding others and edited down all the verses so they complied with the monarchy and church of the time. Why is it that you confront me and not actually do some research. First thing you should try and find is Bill Nye's lecture on the principles of ship building and how the Ark in the bible is a fairy tale considering the leading shipbuilders at the turn of the 20th century tried to build a massive WOODEN ship and it twisted and turned on itself and was lost to the sea but you want me to believe a group of 8 sheepherders with no experience with ship building not only constructed a ship 30% larger but also filled it with every species on the planet at the time in pairs. If that was even possible why do we not see kangaroo or koala skeletons along their long migration back to Australia which would have taken decades if not centuries to accomplish. Or are you insisting on writing your own laws of science and ignoring the lifespan of marsupials?

Oh we understand the the issue. Blacks want focus on their lives but the number of black lives lost due to police incidents is no where near on the level as your own people killing each other. Black on black crime is the main killer of young black males in the "hood". You can blame it on social programming and the way the predominantly white city planners give you pawn shops, liquor stores and gun shops all on the same block and you can continue to be pissed off about slavery which was a terrible practice perpetrated by all colors and creeds or you can look for your future and try and help each other instead of continually whining and killing each other. Looting your own neighborhoods and destroying the public property in your areas will not accomplish what you are seeking.

Topping it was St Paul's advice in 1 Timothy 2:12, in which the saint says: "I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, she must be silent." = Sexist
No one whose testicles are crushed or whose p**is is cut off shall be admitted to the assembly of the LORD. Deuteronomy 23:1 - Sucks if you have cancer

Whosoever … hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God. For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous, Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded, Or crookback, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken … He shall not go in unto the vail, nor come nigh unto the altar, because he hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries. Leviticus 21:17-23 - so basically any illness of anykind and you aint getting into heaven, Also no tattoo's, i know for a fact many supposed "christians" have tattoos of the cross, BETTER GET THAT REMOVED IF YOU WANT IN TO HEAVEN!

Those disabilities kept someone out of the place of worship (I think either the tabernacle or temple, or both), not out of heaven. But I do agree with you that it's pretty messed up to deny someone entry into the place of worship because of a physical disability, especially if it's something they were born with and had no control over.

Again, you are quoting specific scriptures but putting your own endings on them. God does not tell us to "stone women for talking in church" nor does He say that people with specific diseases or physical defects go to hell. But, I would encourage you to keep reading the Bible and ask God to give you an open mind and I will pray that you find whatever it is that you are looking for.

If ignorance is bliss, you must be in a constant state of euphoria.

As our atheist friend, Octavia_Melody pointed out, those kept you from entering into the tabernacle and the temple, the HOLY PLACES.

That was all OLD TESTAMENT! NOWHERE does it say you won't get into HEAVEN.

Did not know about this "scripture" so could you please give me a reference? Thanks. Or, (insert sarcasm here) are you one of those who have combined different documents, books, etc, and say things like "The constitution says there is supposed to be a separation of church and state"?

Okay Downvote, I watched the video. Are you interested in my response?
Also, please accept my apology for the sarcasm in my separation of church and state comment earlier. It was not right for me to represent God that way, so please forgive me.

I'm aware that there are things that God says we're not to do--I don't need to watch YouTube for that. My question was where in the Bible does it say to stone women who talk in church because putting this on a meme can come across as true to some who don't know any better and that is irresponsible.

I'm an atheist but I'm with you on this one. Women talking in church is expressly forbidden, but not punished by stoning.
