Ac 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.[/u]
Again you need to remember that neither GOD , neither jesus wrote any bible, people that are human that can make mistakes (and missunderstand too jesus teachings) did it. once you agree with this fact.. you can move from there.
im not saying or claiming God exist , or not.. i don't know. and neither can proof it , neither you can. is simply not possible to proof something that is not physical and cant' be seen. this however does not means god does not exist. just because you can't see it.. in other words.. im not debating at all the existance or not of GOD , simply don't know. maybe he do exist or maybe not , of maybe is something different to what we understand . what do we know,, is that jesus do believed in GOD
and claimed to be GOD in flesh , his representation.. ok?
and there is no "god inspiration" in those chapters you posted , underlined above.. this is simply jesus apostles saying what they did one day , in one place , Is not Jesus direct teachings
so learn to see in the bible between ,.
1) Jesus direct teachings. what he directly told to his apostles and people. (according to jesus apostles claims)
2) disciples letters to others christians ,of what they did one particular day ,or what they believed
"quotes" in the bible..
3) Disciples reflections /opinions of what christianity really was.. notice that never any disciple of jesus spoke from the point of view of GOD. only jesus did that because claimed to be GOD.
4) and learn the differences between jews believes and opinions of who God was.. in the old testament .
also it will be helpful to see the huge contradictions between jesus GOD and old testament GOD.
Jesus spoke about a God with inconditional love for people.. the jews spoke about a vengeful God ,that was a tyrant like ,that was ready to punish people to the slightest offence and help his chosen people the jews to destroy other nations.
so in which God you want to believe,, in the God of jesus or in the god of those that conspired to kill jesus. even jesus spoke about this hypocrites jews using the term of the synagoge of satan.
jews hate jesus , and jesus took most of jews and converted them to christianity ,to his teachings.
jesus contradict almost any law , any rule , any tradition of the jews.. so how can you follow the old testament ,when jesus contradicted it ? did doesn't means that there are good things in the old testament , good poetry and things like that.. but according to jesus , jews missunderstood God big time and this is why he created a new commandment that replaced the 10 commandements of moses..
in jews 10 commandments ,, no means no.. don't do it.. never do it. no matter what..
in jesus golden rule ,, he allow people to become their own judge, and decide what is right and what is wrong. Jesus golden rule , is far more flexible.
it is right of wrong to lie?
according to jews commandments is wrong ,is a sin..
but if you can save lives ,save people by lying to them, wouldnt this be a good thing?
lets say nazis asked you ,where are the childrens hidding of the entire city... will you tell nazis
about where your children and other childrens hidding?
The 10 commandments claims you should never kill.
but what if a drugged terrorist is trying to enter your house telling you will destroy and explode your entire family. wouldn't the most loving thing to do ,will be to stop this terrorist and shoot him ,to save your life and your family and your neighboorhood too ?
Read jesus gospels, Jews totally missunderstood GOD. and he was arrested and killed by them for telling the the truth. and in my opinion he corrected and fixed it ,with his christianity.
also don't focus too much in what jesus apostles told. remember they missunderstood jesus too many times and when jesus left , the world. each apostle created their own religion ,which contradict each other too.. the peter church contradict the orthodox church in some things.. basically humans ,when they interpret things ,they can make mistakes and missundestand things..
in my opinion. the major reason , there is so many differences in the christians religions ,so many contradictory things. is because the man made institutions , took the "brilliant idea" to combine jews that hated jesus teachings in their torah scriptures ,with christian teachings ,
and likely because jesus teachings were too simple ,too good to be true.. of a God that will always forgive no matter what you do. and so christian used the old testament, the jewish version of the bible ,to create a god , more human like , that is more similar to how humans solves their problems. with wars, with fights, with punishment etc.
the old testament is even full of sacrifices of animals ,to please GOD , and even teach the time , the
"Father of faith" abraham, a jews prophet , was going to kill his own son ,because "heard voices of GOD" telling him to do it.
common. the guy was an unstable crazy maniac and not a man of a peaceful and loving GOD. will you dare to follow a "prophet" teachings ,that listen voices that orders him to kill his family?
i bet you not.
english is not my native language ,but you need to learn to read. exactly what is being told.
is not that hard. the old testament is full of examples of a very tyranical ,egomaniacal god,
that had a constant need for "proof" of loyalty.. as if god could not know people minds , from the inside.
So to believe that jesus never opposed tyrants, never complained about dictators , never lead any wars , (like jews prophets did ) ,a God that will always forgive , is too good to be true for those used to the Torah /old testament GOD that is more human ego like , with favorites ,and with bias for some ethnic groups. So the best way to truly understand christianity , just focus in what jesus told , not what paul or john or judas told.. but jesus.
if you are christian, is jesus christ teachings what you need to follow.. not moses ,not abraham,not paul or peter, not catholic church or evangelical churches additions and new rules they created on top of the jesus teachings.. evangelicals speak about israel , how they need to be helped to destroy others.. this is ridiculous , jesus never spoke about promoting any war. and any one who read jesus teachings will clearly accept this. jesus even reprimanded his apostles ,when took the sword to defend him.. when he was arrested. so who you want to follow ? if you want to follow jesus teachings. the follow what he told.. not what someone else told. ok?
because any claim ,that the entire bible is the "word of God" is a total assumption ,that you have absolutely no way to proof that. and the contradictions alone ,between old testament and new one are too huge ,to believe that both Gods are the same one.. Fact is , that jesus encouraged the creation of a new religion. so if judaism and the torah was soo good ,why jesus had the need to create a new religion? and create a new commandment ,the golden rule? he did it obviously ,because the jews religion was WRONG about jesus.. Jesus used the ancient scriptures at times, like the story of Job , that supposedly God and satan made a bet ,that job will not betray GOD ,and allowed satan to punish him , and kill his family.
if this is the GOD that you want believe? then how can you ever trust in such a tyrant? how can you ever relax in life ,if you can't even trust in GOD and think he can punish you at the slightest offense ? then why you need evil people when you have a tyrannical God like the one jews and their holly book promoted ?
you need to look at what jews , really believe.. go and see their talmud.. is the most racist
ideology in the world. that consider non jews worthy as dogs.
Jesus as adult only used the jews scriptures only for reference ,but he teach his own things , completely new teachings ,not in the old testament. because the torah are things , the jews are more used to understand. but make no mistake , jesus contradicted almost everything jews teach. jesus claimed,, yes there is one god to the jews, but there is one catch.. that he was that GOD.
naturally many jews used to the torah , to an exceptional GOD ,exclusive for jews ,for the chosen ones ,will have never accepted that.. the apostles however converted to christianity .
Jesus claimed to be GOD , there is no question about this.. and his main enemies , those seeking to destroy him was the jews.. and interestingly jews today , still hate christians and they are the ones leading the charge against the destruction of them, through their business ,their power and money ,and influence over governments.. most jews (not everyone) are materialistic people , who cares more about power and fame and social class.. totally outward materialistic looking religion. while christianity as taught by jesus was the opposite ,totally inward looking one.
christianity as taught directly by jesus is more similar to budism , but with a God. they are true religions of peace ,religions that looks inward and not at the material things in the world. it is also similar in many ways to india religions too.. in the sense that they are inward looking religions.
and not political focused.. as the islam and judaism are.
if you want to know which religions promotes real peace of not.. look at those countries where is practiced. if you see those countries always at war, solving their problems with other nations always with bombs , then is because their religion ,what they practice is not what jesus christianity promoted.
what people believe inside sooner or later will show it outside,.. and this is why israel and america and britain are so war loving nations ,their countries have been educated their people ,into the racist part of the bible , believe of the moses God ,a racist God ,that have exceptional people superior than others."the chosen ones" to survive in the end of the world. jesus christianity instead in the new testament promoted that we are all equals for GOD and that violence is not how you solve things. judaism and old testament torah and islam .and bible old testament teach ideologies that creates divisions in the world ,because believe in the superiority of one race over another ,new testament christianity ,specially jesus direct teachings and budism are true ideologies of unity among society and cooperation , and peace.
this is why i was saying ,the biggest problem ,the world face today. is that vast overwhelming majority of people ,perhaps 95% percent, to just say a number , have been educated from childhood to become totally dependent in their thinking , and trained to always assume to be correct ,what their authorities in politics , religion ,science and health industries tells them to be "truth". but they are not aware of this nasty bad habit of humans of desire for power and greed , to try to take advantage of others and try to control populations through fear.. and now they are telling you ,that the "only way" you can live, a better life and not die ,is by taking vaccine shot every year , every month with their genetical experiments. Jesus teachings spoke about illness and viruses and clearly told to his disciples that it was what you believe in your mind and heart ,what can damage you and not the things that comes from outside.. Jesus teachings are known today in new age spirituality as methaphysics, and what methaphysics teach is that everything that comes into your life , is created by you in some way or another ,by the thoughts ,by the feelings and by the believes ,you hold.
so if you want best possible experiences,, then have always the best thoughts ,feelings and optimism about the future.
