Agreed, just as possible as walking on water, turning water to wine, impregnating a virgin, talking through a burning bush and almost obliterating mankind by flooding the entire world. Spot on answer!

Prove it.

Look at creation...creation shows us there is a creator
Report as
wickedpissah
Yes, and that creator is abviously Zeus.
Report as
Nah
Report as
wickedpissah
You're living in denial.
As you said, His creation is all the proof you should need.
Why is it so hard for you to be thankful to your creator, Zeus, for giving you life?
You don't want to go to Hades, do you?
Report as
No, creation proves there is a creator, I never said it was that guy. But the God of the bible instead. One true and only God

Zeus is older than that storybook god.
Zeus has had more children than that storybook god.
Zeus can be seen and heard in the lightning and the thunder, that storybook god has never been seen or heard by anyone.
Stop living in denial.
Repent while you still can. Accept Zeus into your heart, and avoid an eternity of nothingness in Hades.

So the bad ppl go to hades where do the good people go then?
Report as
wickedpissah
Well, if you repent now, you may still have a chance to spend eternity riding in the Elysian Fields. I doubt you'll ever make it to the top of Mount Olympus.
But if you conitnue to deny the truth of Zeus, then Hades will be too good for you, and you'll fall nine days down into the deepest depths of Tartarus, chained to a brazen anvil, never to feel the sun on your face again.
Report as
Alright, so do you think your a good person? Good enough to get to the top of mount Olympus?
Report as
wickedpissah
That's not for me to decide.
Report as
So you could never know? C'mon do you think your a good person? Simple yes or no?
Report as
wickedpissah
At least I don't go around denying Zeus, and following some man-made storybook myth.
Report as
That's not the question... Do you think your a good person?
Report as
wickedpissah
My opinion of myself is irrelevent.
Pride leads to hubris.
Report as
Alright. Lets imagine you standing before Zeus, would he think your a good person?
Report as
wickedpissah
I would not presume to know the mind of Zeus.
THAT is hubris.
Report as
You should come to know if your a good person or not its not prideful to do so.. It's like if I take a test and think I will recieve an A on it... Thts not prideful, I make that claim bc of my work ethic, my study skills, and how hard I thought the test was...that's not prideful...so lemme ask again...do you think your a good person?
Report as
wickedpissah
Rather than wasting my time wondering whether or not I'm a "good person", I prefer to spend my time just trying to be a good person.
Stop wondering, start doing.
And the firstthing you should do is accept Almighty Zeus and stop following that silly little storybook upstart diety.
Report as
Alright let's see how good you are as of now... How many lies have you told in your life?
Report as
wickedpissah
You have begun to bore me with your questions.
Clearly you're not interested in salvation.
Fine.
Have fun in Tartarus.
Goodnight.

I've already received eternal life so I don't need salvation again I'm already saved... So how many lies have you told in your life?

Do you believe there is (A) God? At all?
Report as
I'm a Buddhist. -_-
Report as
So you believe that there is no God bc of suffering? Buddhists live a life of contradiction-they seek to overcome suffering by rooting out desire, but at the same time they cultivate desire for self control, meritorious life, and nirvana. Christians are consistent- we seek to reject evil desires and cultivate good desires according o the standard of Christ. "Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness faith love and peace, along with those who call on The Lord out of a pure heart" (2 Tim 2:22)
Report as
I ain't reading all that.
Report as
Buddhists believe in the eight fold path, these can be applied to Christ as follows
Right views: Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and there is salvation in no one else.
Right aspiration: fights and quarrels come from selfish desires and wrong motives. Right desires and motives honor God..
Right speech:the one who lows Jesus must obey him(John 14:21) and those tht live by Gods wisdom will produce good fruits(jas.3:17)
Right livelihood: God will care for those who put him first(matt6:31) and all work must be done for his approval.
Right effort: like runners in a race, followers of Christ must throw of every hinderance in order to give Him thier best efforts.
Right mindfulness: the sinful mind cannot submit to Gods law(rom.8:7) and disciples of Jesus must orient thier minds as he did(phil2:5)
And lastly right contemplation: the secret of true success, inner peace, self control and lasting salvation is submission to Christ as savior an lord and setting ur mind on things above where he now sits in glory waiting to bring the present order of sin and suffering to and end (col.3:1-4)
Report as
Why do you suppose I care? ._.
Report as
I shouldn't care about where you spend eternity but as of now I do:/ I would hate for you to en up in hell man I wouldn't lie to you it's the gospel truth! I've evangelized to countless people with so many beliefs.. Even Buddhists.. I showed them how God truly is and they turned from living a life of what they thought was an illusion and faced reality. That we will all die and face God one day.

What's funny about this, is that Devine Wind completely turned his back on you while you attempted to assert your faith by demeaning his belief system. Devine Wind represented himself perfectly by ignoring you (in line with his beliefs), while you threw your predictable christian tantrum.

Yes or no

It's so simple: Quotes from a book written by man, of increasingly contradictory origin, constantly employed as a war manifesto, will never serve as compelling proof of a giant invisible man, who lives in the sky and kills the people he loves when they fart in the wrong direction.

I never felt any form of envy of what other people owned. If I wanted something, I'd work to get it. -_- you're talking to someone who doesn't give a crap about 90% of things most people care about. You might want to try harder. And what's the purpose of these useless questions?
Report as
Alright I'll get to the point...so u broke Gods law. We both have.. So when you die you hav to face him in your sin. So of God were to judge you for who u truly are with your sin... We would be guilty in his sight. So what would you say to God that day when you face him?
Report as
The evangelism speech is so freaking predictable and boring. No one else thinks your list of "sins" means humans inherently deserve eternal torture and thus need to suck up to an invisible deity and accept a blood sacrifice to be "saved".

This nonsense is one of the things that gives Christianity a bad name. Devine said repeatedly he wasn't interested in your religion. Show some respect for others' rights to believe whatever they wish. No one here is trying to get you to quit believing your myths, so leave him alone.
Report as
I would tell "god" that I simply "do not care".
Report as
Thank you Skeptikitten!
Report as
. . .this is so painful to watch. .Devine is still *perfectly* representing his beliefs by humoring your line of questioning. He is tolerating you because you feel it's important. You should thank him for his time when you finish.
Report as
People don't understand what their sins actually are. Our sins are a crime against God.. We broke Gods law and he is the judge. A good judge doesn't let a criminal go free. God is just and doesn't let sin go unpunished. But Jesus paid your fine in full. The last words he said on the cross were it is finished! It was a legal transaction on Gods part. Jesus bailed you out of Gods prison hell. We break Gods law daily and feel that we are "good".. All you have to do is repent an trust in Jesus. Not trusting in your good works not some religion.. Christianity is a "religion" but religious ppl don't go to heaven. You can't earn salvation it's a gift of God. Christianity centers on a relationship with a person called Jesus... Ppl think its all bad and blablabla but they jut don't wana face a good that hates sin bc thy enjoy sin too much...Jesus came to pay your fine so that you wouldn't have too
Report as
I hope you stop now swaggerness. Skeptikitten won't be even a nano percentile as tolerant of your preaching as I would have. Good luck.
Report as
If God loved me, he wouldn't send me to an eternity of torture because I wasn't perfect. Now would he? .-. Because if he did, he wouldn't be the living, and forgiving god Christians say he is.
Report as
*loving
Report as
BS, swaggness. You don't have even a shred of evidence your god exists, and likewise you have ZERO contemporary evidence your Jesus existed, much less the rest of that text wall rant of nonsense. If you have no evidence your god exists, why on Earth would we bother believing your claims on his alleged attributes?
"Sin" is a Judeo-Christian belief- one we do not share. We are perfectly capable of being moral and ethical without a Bronze Age book. And your implication that we don't believe because we want to "sin" or it's easier is both insulting and absurd. If you have to believe in "Jesus" to be moral you lack morality in the first place.
Further, your claim that your god is just and loving is absolute bunk. If you consider any finite offense worthy of eternal punishment you aren't just illogical; you are a sociopath. In fact, your belief that acceptance of "Jesus" earns a person an eternal reward regardless of actions but a moral person of a different religion or none deserves eternal torture is amoral in and of itself.

The fact that you have no evidence any of your claims are true yet expect us to simply accept it speaks poorly of your critical thinking ability.

There is as much evidence for the Greek gods as there is for any other god including the biblical god, so if YHWH is real so can be the Greek Zeus.

The Bible tells us that there is only one God in all existence (Isaiah 43:10; 44:6,8). However, it also mentions 'other gods.' For example there is Adrammelech and Anammelech (2 Kings 17:31), Asherah (1 Kings 18:19), Baal (Judges 3:7), Chemosh (Num. 21:29), Dagon (1 Sam. 5:2), Molech (Lev. 18:21; 20:2-5), etc. The Bible is not contradicting itself. When the Bible speaks of other gods it is speaking of false gods that have no true existence. Gal. 4:8 says, "Formerly, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those who by nature are not gods." See also, Isaiah 37:19 and Jeremiah 2:11. God tells us that he alone is the true God and that all of the invented gods of man do not exist except in their own minds. So, we can see that the Bible is not contradicting itself regarding how many gods there are in existence. There is only one.

There are Hellenic Reconstruction religions in existence as we speak, so there are those who do still believe that the Greek Gods are real (or any other pantheon you might think of).
