    When under 75 years of communistic rule, millions of Russians did. Despite ridicule, harassment, confiscation of religious property. Atheism was the accepted teaching. Religious beliefs will never perish.

    Symbolic wine for blood still counts. I thought' I said that. And Jesus dying on the cross was a human sacrifice.

    No it is symbolic of being filled with the Holy Spirit. Not anything to do with drinking sacrificial blood. Jesus gave Himself for others to be saved. Sodabox, I've told you my beliefs and I walk the walk of faith (most times), I however, do not feel like having continued discourse with someone who only wants to degrade those that have faith. Good luck to you.

    "Drink the wine IT IS MY BLOOD" Can't get any clearer then that.

    Yes, symbolically, not literally. The disciples did not literally drink His blood. If you take the time to read this it may be helpful. This comes from bible study.org:
    The words of Jesus flowed with the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, bringing life to all whom God had chosen to reveal His truth. What He had said about eating His flesh and drinking His blood was never meant to be taken literally, as though He was advocating some form of cannibalism. He explained: ‘The flesh profits nothing’ (John 6:63). Dependence upon physical, bodily flesh would not help anyone to live forever—this is what we can reasonably infer from the context. It was not the cannibalistic eating of His literal flesh and blood that was going to provide life, but rather the imbibing of His words: ‘The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life,’ He declared (John 6:63, NKJ).
    The life of the flesh is in the blood’ (Lev. 17:11, 14, NKJ). ‘The blood is the life’ (Deut. 12:23, NKJ). This is what we can read in the Old Testament. Jesus was as much as saying to those who listened, ‘Receive My life into yourself!’ He was and is the living Word of God, imbued with all the fullness of the Holy Spirit.

To enter into life we must accept and act upon the words of Christ with living faith, repenting of sins and turning to God in order to receive forgiveness and the gift of the Holy Spirit, as Jesus promised (John 14:15-17; 26). ‘If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ,’ Paul wrote, ‘he does not belong to Christ’ (Rom. 8:9) … ‘those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God’ (v14, NIV).

    I am respectfully asking you not to respond, I do not feel like continuing to read your comments that are meant in a mean-spirited way and disrespectfully as well. I can't be any clearer than that.

    How many times do I have to say it doesn't have to be real blood? Symbolic blood is enough to make it a blood cult. Duh. Move on.

    He also told them God would be born a king! Birth of Jesus Not so easy to understand with our little brains! That is why we are given Faith through Grace!

    Then why didn't your imaginary god give us "bigger" brains so we could understand? Why make the bible so hard to understand? Why not update it now?
  • Marie sodabox 2012/07/11 18:49:50

    Maybe we will learn eventually! Faith is the answer! Many have been given an epiphany! A gift you cannot buy or earn! It if given, and without it no one can convince you! It comes directly from the Almighty! God bless!

    Faith is the answer? When has it ever been the answer to anything? When you are very sick do you just pray or see a doctor? If you see a doctor then you have more "faith" in science then your imaginary god.
  • Marie sodabox 2012/07/11 19:28:06
    Marie
    Without God the doctor is helpless! If we wish to get to shore, God would tell us We must row the boat!

    How is the doctor helpless without god? The doctor is using science, not the bible to help you.

    Actually Jesus says that only the Father knows the time, not even the Son.

    So that is a contradiction, isn't it? One is a lie. Which is it?
  • Tarheel sodabox 2012/07/07 19:37:17

    How is that a contradiction? No one knows when the world will end, only God.
  • sodabox Tarheel 2012/07/07 21:20:03

    It is a contradiction because Jesus said he knew. He said he would be back in his follower's lifetime. Get it?
  • Tarheel sodabox 2012/07/08 04:16:43
    Tarheel
    That's what they assumed He meant, it wasn't. (obviously)
  • sodabox Tarheel 2012/07/08 17:27:59

    So, it is a contradiction. And a big one.

    Christ is equal with God
    John 10:30/ Phil 2:5
    Christ is not equal with God
    John 14:28/ Matt 24:36

    The bible is full of contradictions

    Until the rapture, many families still teach and educate their children and grandchildren regarding bibical principles, and I am sure that they're children will do the same with their children and grandchildren.

    If you think a society largely free of religion isn't "worth a damn", then you should visit Sweden, the least religious society on earth. The only problems in Sweden are caused by the Muslims who immigrate there.

    Internet gives people access to information an reduces isolation. Religion requires a lack of information and strict isolation to function.

    I believe in God, I'm not isolated and I have the internet.

    Kind of shoots your theory in the ass, doesn't it?

    You believe in Noah's flood? You believe your god got mad because a group of people built a tower that was high enough to reach heaven? You believe the earth is flat?

    I also think you would see a doctor instead of just pray if you were really sick or injured. You have that little faith in the power of your god.

    See thats the thing about a punt, the ball is still in your field but you have to work extra hard to get it, but since your a liberal you won't do it because your all free loaders and hate working for your own benefit.
