Life from Death, witness the parable of the sower:
Lets start with this: DEATH OVER LIFE, NOT LIFE FROM DEATH. My username is a DEATH WORSHIPPING USERNAME, not a LIFE WORSHIPPING username. Please, if you don’t wish to abbreviate my username, and you really want me to take you seriously, GET MY NAME RIGHT 1ST!
While a large crowd was gathering and people were coming to Jesus from town after town, he told this parable: 5 “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path; it was trampled on, and the birds ate it up. 6 Some fell on rocky ground, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown
When he said this, he called out, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”
This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those along the path are the ones who hear, and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. 13 Those on the rocky ground are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away. 14 The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature. 15 But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.
Here is the thing, we are not children, the atheists here know far more about the Bible than you can even begin to understand, and that even includes me.
Yes, I already know about the parable. And you really messed up your testimony with your’ personal commentary, let me show you:
Those along the path are the ones who hear, and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved.
The “Devil”. I’m sorry, but there is no personal devil that is really anti-God. Your’ good vs. evil concept is a Zoroastrian concept. Go read the Book of Job, where they show you your’ devil Satan is really one of God’s most trusted and faithful servants. Ch. 1 of Job is a great start!
Salvation, from what? God? So God sent His son to save us from Himself so we can be with Him for all eternity? Circular logic that makes no sense.
The rest of the parable, yes, you got the meaning of the parable! Congratulations!
The passage I highlighted applies to you. Here is your answer:
And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.
Jesus has not forgotten you. He has not abandoned you, and He will not give you up to the evil one. Though you have forsaken Him, He has never forsaken you.
Brother, I was elected. God is more real to me than I am to myself. No lie will darken the light I have been given by our Lord Jesus Christ. Though you are deceived, you will be delivered from evil. God bless.
Not even in your Christian Bible, is there a good vs. evil. It’s a Zoroastrian concept. Stop plagiarizing please.
Though you are deceived, you will be delivered from evil.
Coming from you, that is a compliment! Thank you!
God Bless atheism indeed!
Sog, next time you want to talk to me, since your OP has stated you have proof of God healing amputees, please stop the preaching and show me some god damned evidence for once in your life.
Stop quoting Scriptures. The atheists know far more than you do. Stop preaching the Bible. Many here have read the Bible cover to cover with the Quran, with the Avesta, with many other religious books you can think of.
Please stop using the Bible as evidence, as the Bible has no evidence of anything. They are stories made up by man to brainwash and control you so you will not only get the fullest out of life, but will live a living hell while you are alive till you are dead and only once you are dead will you find out you’ve been lied to, and since you won’t exist anymore, you can’t say to yourself, man, I wish I lived a different life than what I did live.
The Bible has no evidence of what it validates, but if you bring us real proof that God heals amputees as your OP says and your claim that says you do, and you show it, I promise you I will retract every mean, harsh statement I’ve made, will issue a formal apology, and go back to Christianity in a heartbeat (if you show that it is the Christian God that did this and not Enki, nor Nergal, nor Baal, nor Thor, nor Odin, nor Loki, nor Zeus, nor Hercules, nor Hades, nor Shiva, nor Vishnu, nor Krishna, nor Moloch, nor Marduk, nor Poseidon, nor Ares, nor Quetzalcoatl etc.)
