Does it come as a surprise to some of you that JESUS does not just love christians only ?

Report as

He may love everyone but apparently his vanity only allows him to reward those that love him back, I guess he's more human then most would like to admit, I wonder why? :/

It may be like that for some...Many don't know/believe that Jesus is always there for them and nothing makes Him happy than the return of one of them to him...He left the 99 sheep to go and get the missing 1 !

If god loves everyone, then why do people say "god hates gays"?
Report as
Because those people are judgmental idiots. They do not actually read the whole bible, they only pick and chose and misinterpet.
Report as
Does god love murderers and rapists too?
Report as
Yes. He may not approve of what they do and hopes they will repent and accept him into their hearts.
Report as
That's a pretty blissful view.
I'm not religious personally.
But you support your view pretty solidly.

If you think about, it is the same for parents. Just because you have a child who breaks the law they are still your child. Some part of you loves them, even tho you don't agree with what they have done.
Report as
ACtually there are numerous instances where it states "god" doesn't love everyone. In fact, there's rather a laundry list of people he hates and wants destroyed.

Give me the list.

It comes as a surprise that you say it: Jesus specifically directed his mission to Jews. He explicitly instructed his disciples to not go to the Gentiles (Matthew 10:5). It should be clear that Jesus viewed his mission as a mission to the Jews and the Jews only. (The Jews had the forthright to not listen to his dangerous teachings though.) Having said that, Jesus doesn't love anyone, because he died. We can argue whom he loved when he was living, but after death he can't love anyone.

No! everything went according to God's plan. He already knew the Jews would reject Jesus from day one. You do nothing but babble. You know nothing of the Word Of God.

How is me quoting your Jesus being hateful?!? If you have problems with Jesus telling his disciples to not go to the Gentiles (Matthew 10:5), complain with Jesus, not with me...

James, of course God knew the Jews would reject Jesus. That was the first of the Ten Commandments: Thou shalt not have another god before Me.

Yes Jesus told his disciples to go to the lost sheep of Israel because He also said Salvation was to be preached to the Jews first and then the Greek ( The Gentiles). And your statement has nothing to do with what I just said. God predestine everything. He knows the beginning and the end. And at the end the Jewish people will repent and receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Sorry Lior but you really don't have a clue about the Word Of God.
Report as
James, you have no idea what I know and what I don't know. I guess that's all you have to say because you have no arguments on the merits. And you cannot dispute that jesus never said go first to the Jews and then if they reject you go to the Gentiles. He just said font go to the Gentiles.

Sure I do. Cause I know The Word Of God cause I'm a Christian and your not. That's why you have no clue of what the bible says. Jesus only revealed the true meaning of the scriptures to those who are His true followers. If you have not the Holy Spirit within you then your lost and blind of the truth.

Lior : one day you will bow before Jesus ; this Jesus. Stick to the old testament .. You dont belong in the New !!
Report as
James..., here's your god's plan.
God decides to redeem mankind, to save them from HIS eternal damnation. To do so, he will send HIS son to be sacrificed to HIMSELF, in atonement for the sins committed against HIMSELF.
He chooses a people to help him do it. He makes sure that they know his plan by sending prophets. But if his people know his son is the the messiah, they will not kill him, and his plan will be spoiled.
So, he makes his prophecies murky.
His scheme works.
What a divine script.
Praise be to God.

I just told you. But you don't wanna receive my answer. And believe me I'm very educated in The Word because I have the author who wrote the Bible living within me you don't. All though the Old testament Jesus was spoken of before He when became flesh. He was and with God in the beginning. Jesus said "The volume of the Book ( The Bible ) is about me" Those that where key people in the Old Testament understood who Jesus was and wrote about Him all the prophets and all those that played a major part in The Old Testament. And it was accounted to them as righteousness.People like Moses, Abraham, Issac, Jacob, King David, Joshua, Joesph, Elijah Elisha, Etc.Etc.

Israel Finkelstein, chairman of the Archaeology Department at Tel Aviv University, with archaeology historian Neil Asher Silberman, has just published a book called "The Bible Unearthed: Archaeology's New Vision of Ancient Israel and the Origin of Its Sacred Text."

"The Israelites were never in Egypt, did not wander in the desert, did not conquer the land [of Canaan] in a military campaign and did not pass it on to the twelve tribes of Israel. Perhaps even harder to swallow is the fact that the united kingdom of David and Solomon, described in the Bible as a regional power, was at most a small tribal kingdom."
~
The famous battle of Jericho, with which the Israelites supposedly launched this campaign of conquest after wandering for decades in the desert, has been likewise debunked: The city of Jericho didn't exist at that time and had no walls to come tumbling down. These assertions are all pretty much accepted by mainstream archaeologists.
~
In particular, the account of Joshua's conquest of Canaan is inconsistent with the archaeological evidence. Cities supposedly conquered by Joshua in the 14th century bce were destroyed long before he came on the scene. Some, such as Ai and Arad, had been ruins for a 1000 years.
~
There are still many differing opinions regarding the origin of the Bible, when it was written, and under what conditions; but it is fair to say that, outside fundamentalist circles, modern consensus suggests that the assembling and editing of the documents that were to constitute the Bible began in the seventh century BCE, some three centuries after David's time. (The earliest actual material in our possession, part of the Dead Sea Scrolls, dates to the second century BCE at the earliest).

James, no you haven't told me. And your self attestation that you know the word only tell me that you think you do. Jesus is not mention even once in the OT. And Jesus did not "say" the verse you're (mis)quoting, he quoted it. From Psalms. And you bring it in a huge mistranslation, so mistranslated its close to being a forgery!

Hebrews 10:5-10

Christ?s Death Fulfills God?s Will

5 Therefore, when He came into the world, He said:

"Sacrifice and offering You did not desire,
But a body You have prepared for Me.
6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin
You had no pleasure.
7 Then I said, ?Behold, I have come?
In the volume of the book it is written of Me?
To do Your will, O God."

8 Previously saying, "Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them? (which are offered according to the law), 9 then He said, ?Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God." He takes away the first that He may establish the second. 10 By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Raven, I am well aware of Finky's theory. I read this book about a decade ago. It is by no means the mean stream archeology viewpoint. Indeed, archeologists nowadays no longer have a chisel in one hand and the Bible in another, but Finky is at the opposite extreme. Let me just add, that perhaps you find no evidence for conquest in the 14th century, because your chronology is skewed, and you're looking at the wrong time frame. In analogy, you'd find no evidence WWII ever existed if you looked at 17th century relics... Having said all that, it has nothing to do with the topic in question!
Report as
James, oh my, you are so taken by forgeries and mistranslations... Hebrews 10 is not an original text, but a quote from Psalms 40. The source does not quite say what you attribute to it though: it says "You have opened my ears (so that I could hear)", not a body you have prepared... At any case, Heb is not evidence that that OT mentions Jesus... Last I checked, that was NT, not OT!

James, if you think all these archaeologist that have been looking for proof for decades are to stupid to look in the right spot maybe you should show them where they can find what they're looking for.

Raven, you don't seem to grasp the problem. Say you find the walls of a large city with formidable gates. They don't come with a sign " City of X from the Bible", so you must identify it. If you use the Bible, you may identify it as X. But say you date the findings, and they are a couple centuries off what you think Biblical chronology is. What do you do? Someone like Finky says there is no evidence for a large city at Biblical times, so Solomon's kingdom wasn't as grand, or Joshua couldn't have conquered etc. other say, well maybe we need to revise the chronology. With all due respect to Finky, his opinion is not that of main stream. So it not all those archeologists who didn't look at the right place. It's how you interpret what they did find.

The Jesus of the New Testament is a mythological character so he can love whoever you would like to imagine he does.

Yes, that's why the Gospels having him refer to Gentiles as "swine" and "dogs" several times. I just FEEL the love.

Not that he probably existed in the first place, but the point remains.
