The first question I had to answer again was even if God existed. Ultimately, if you do not believe there is nothing to consider, but if you do believe you have to decide what that god is. One of many, or One? What are we to any god(s)?
I wouldn’t use the word lie. I have doubts about whether they actually happened, meaning I realize that it’s possible I find my faith.
The minute you stop looking for your faith, it will find you.
[quote]John 10: 34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are “gods” ’ [d]? 35 If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be broken— 36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’? 37 Do not believe me unless I do the works of my Father. 38 But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.” 39 Again they tried to seize him, but he escaped their grasp.
Unfortunately we don’t have the benefit of seeing them live as this witness claims.
So set the works question aside for the moment, but it is a bold claim to be noted. Research who wrote them, when and why they wrote them, and what was going at the time where they were when they were written.
After you do that for this faith, do it for a few others to compare them. Or do others first then try this one. Truth should remain true throughout the journey. All of that lead me back here where I started from.
I’m stating that the lessons the Bible teaches are excellent and even though I’m not a Christian, have found that I appreciate the context. For example, the ten commandments…I try to live by them. I recognize Cardinal Sin and try to stay away from them.
- Be like a father to orphans, and instead of a husband to their mother; you will then be like a son of the Most High, and he will love you more than does your mother.

All you have to do is be honest with yourself.
