A real christian belive that Jesus is Gods son! If thats the ground message, you can be a real christian. After that you can have different seen on other things! Like Catholiks and Protestans. THey both belive in Jesus as Gods son but they are doing it in different ways!
And if you are trying to follow the bible as much as you can and belive that Jesus is Gods son you are a christian! Its not very hard at al!
So in your opinion, EVERYONE who believes Jesus is the son of God and accepts Jesus and YHWH as their lords, are christians? Are you sure that all theese christians will go to heaven, whereas the rest will go to hell? Are you secure in your mind that YHWH also sees it this way? What makes you so sure in case you think so?
Since the scroll is about 3000 years and the bible we read today is exactly the same. How can it then been misstranslated? KJV isnt the bible i read!
You should reread my post. The scroll that was found would only contain the old testamente. According to most theologians today, the new testamente contains YHWH's message to the people through the canons about Jesus. Which more or less make the old testamente relevant only through getting to know the history of the Jews, and what God has done for humans etc. e.g. even though it may in some way "prove" God's greatness and how divine the bible is etc, it doesn't prove that the New testamente hasn't been tampered with. I would also like to ask you of proof of this statement in regarding to the 3000 year bible. Would you have any sources I could check to verify that your claim regarding the unchangedness of the bible through the last 3000 years?
Again. Its all put to belif! I think like this: If it is Gods book that he want us to learn from. Why wouldnt he lead the ppl to put the right books in it?
And the ppl who put the bible to what it is today is the headppl of the church at that time. And they have been learning from the earlier headppl. That is a long line down to the first apostles who was with Jesus!
Yes, I get all that, but WHY do you believe they were divine? You must have a reason. Surely you just didn't assume that a bunch of random people you don't know somehow were inspired by God to write what now supposedly should dictate your life. Or did you? There must be something more to it than just belief in some random people knowing what's best for you, right?
You also mention how the decidors where the descendants of the apostles of Jesus, but how does this make things anymore true? Several apostles of Jesus was far from perfect. Peter cut of the ear of a guard and denied Jesus 3 times. Judas betrayed Jesus, John was young and unexperienced during his time with Jesus, Thomas doubted the miracle of Jesus' ressurection. The list just goes on and on. And this is even according to the gospels you subscribe to, so what in the world makes theese people, and their descendants more credible than any other people in the world? They were humans just like you and I, and were prone to mistakes and "evilness" just like us. We are not perfect, and neither were they, so why believe that they submitted God's word perfectly to you?
