“Anyone who wishes to claim that title for themselves can rightfully call themselves a Christian. They differ from the atheist, the Buddhist or any other system of beliefs insomuch as that they choose to align themselves under that designation.”

It is true that for census purposes anybody who declares to be a Christian would be counted as a Christian; it is one’s right to declare religion of one’s choice for one.

But for faith purposes there is a litmus test to know a Christian from say a Muslim.

And here is the test:

There is not a single Muslim in the world who believes that Jesus died on Cross, it is so clearly mentioned in Quran. So, according to Muslims Jesus never needed to be resurrected from the dead as he never died on the Cross in the first place. Hence Jesus was never God as per Quran/Islam/Muhammad.

There is not a single Christian, in my knowledge, who does not believe that Jesus died a cursed death on Cross for the sinful Christians; later as per the Christian faith Jesus got resurrected to life from the dead, and hence he was God and he sat on the right hand of God, assuming all-power.

This is, to me, the superstitious building blocks of Christian faith which the Christians have been made to believe by Paul in Rome.

In the same way the Mormons believe the later faith, so they are Christian for all practical purposes according to the litmus test to know a Christian from a Muslim or a Muslim from a Christians.

Otherwise, one would remain confused

Thanks

For census purposes it is correct to register anybody who wants to register as a Christian should be done accordingly.
Otherwise those who do not believe in the core teachings of Jesus; they must not morally claim to be Christians. The core teachings of Jesus are as follows:

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Matthew 22:36-40

The Christians; their 32000+ denominations; they don’t follow Jesus and the core teachings of Jesus; instead of following Jesus, they follow Paul.

Jesus did not believe in Trinity; he did not claim to be a literal and physical god or son of god; all these creeds were invented by Paul, Church and the scribes.

These creeds have nothing to do with Jesus.

One’s belief in One-True-God should not change without concrete proofs and evidences

“Ah, I see the confusion. Consider the comments as coming from a pilgrim at two different places on a journey, and that may help.
The notion of thinking that God’s words can stand well was always my long held view of things as a Christian. That is, if the words of the biblical texts are from god, they will withstand any test.” Unquote

I think journey itself should keep one’s memory fresh; journey itself cannot negate one’s memory.

What concrete proofs and evidences you found in your journey that “One-True-God does not exist” which changed your belief in the One-True-God (Jesus is not God as per his core teachings that I have already quoted)?

I think you labored and suffered much but you did not make comparative study of religions and non-religions under some good principle on equal basis to both. You believe withered away without any good reason and if that is not the case then perhaps it should be still there.

Peripheral issues with Bible should be interpreted within the core teachings of Jesus

Hello everybody!

Most Issues with the Bible will get diluted; if instead of the peripheral issues one concentrates on the core teachings of Moses and Jesus:

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Matthew 22:36-40

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+22%3A36-40

All the peripheral issues should be interpreted within the scope of the above core teachings of Jesus or else rejected forthwith.

This is a way of reconciliation between the Atheists who were previously Christians; the crowbar need not be applied.

Does this help?

“it is possible to bring down a structure by removing the right component, the right foundational brick. The brick in this case was removed”.

What was the foundational brick of Christianity in your case? Please

Christians! Please follow Jesus and Jesus’ core teachings; instead of following sinful Paul

“The evidence for Jesus being god is all down to interpretation.
That Pauline doctrine won the day over the Jerusalem church is history.”

I agree with you here.

The Christians; their 32000+ denominations; they don’t follow Jesus and the core teachings of Jesus; instead of following Jesus, they follow Paul and want that innocent Jesus also should follow sinful Paul and the sinful Church.

An apologist lying through his teeth

January 25, 2014

Paarsurrey says:
I am here with you; Jesus was a Jew and followed the law given to Moses by the One-True-God; so if a Christian followed Jesus then he cannot go against the core teachings of Moses that are the same core teachings of Jesus; he was a perfect man of One-True-God and did not literally claim to be a god or son of god.

Random thoughts

If Jesus lived, he said[Mathew 5:17-19]

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

So, a christian who makes a claim to the contrary is cherry picking what to follow and is lying in the process.
