Re: Existence of Jesus
Honestly I have to wonder about people like this, Show me your evidence that Jesus was married, if you are referring to the likes of the Da Vinci code then you are a very easily misled person (Channel 4 Docunmentry on 'Da Vinci code': The editor of the Da Vinci code himself admitted that the book was originally intendead to be a fictionous book deliberatly intending to cause controversy (as these are generally the best sellers)),
Amazing that some people come up with a theory and so many people jump on the band wagon and decide it must be true, as opposed to scripture which has been virtually written in stone for thousands of years and has changed the lives of so many people as well as the works and miracles of a man which were witnessed by thousands of people, his followers, his enemies alike.
you wrote 'You can always laugh and scorn the word of God but believe me, when you will have to become a muslim you will laugh a lot less' ,
Is that what islam is all about ?? forcing people to beieve against there free will, fire agression and control etc..??? not the sort of God I would like to meet and if God is like that then there is no hope for any of us.
All you have to do is look at the harmony and beauty of creation itself to see the reflection of Gods image and what he is like. Jesus then confirmed this loving image and showed us that God wants everyone to be saved regardless of their race, colour or personal background. When people rejected the works of Jesus(God) he didn't strike them down with disease or bolts of lightening, he allowed them the free will to choose their path but at the same time told them of the consequences of doing so.
Friend, you are perfectly entitled to your opinion and you may think I am biased because I am a christian but I have had a fairly long and complex spiritual Journey, and have Muslim family from Saudi and a large number of Buddist's in my family as well, with all these distractions I got confused and asked God to lead me to the truth and this is where he brought me and over the last 10 years I am amazed of what God has shown me through the world.
Anyway you have found a path which you are so sure about, I really hope you are right because there is a lot at stake, to many people see religion/spirituallity as a label, an identity, and leave it at that but there is alot more to it than that and the magnitude of the claims that Jesus made are to great to be taken lightly.
Thanks for reading
All the best.
