    When I was a non-believer, I did not have stable guideline. I was just following what society expects from me.

    And it was a chaotic life.

    Jesus literally gave me life.

    That's why I trust everything what He teaches.
    Good for you. I am happy to hear that.

    • Deuteronomy 6:4-5

      Jacob,

      That is the scripture you posted I wanted to ask you about. What do you think it means to love the Lord with all your heart, mind, and strength?

      I mean, a person can work themselves to death. This is a real thing, not just an expression. It was so common in Japan after WWII they actually have a word for it. It means, “worked himself to death.” So, people can do a lot.

      Must one work themselves to death loving God to give 100 percent?

      • There was a Hindu man who wanted to be closer to God, so he decided to raise his right arm above his head, and keep it there always, as a sign of his faith. He was reaching out to God.

        His arm stuck. It literally atrophied to the point of being useless.

        I’d say he gave 100 percent on that one. What about you?

        • There was a Buddhist Monk protesting the war in Vietnam who lit himself on fire and burned himself to death. It’s a fact you can verify by finding it on you tube.

          He wasn’t crazy or in drugs, he placed himself in a meditative state.

          • Sorry, I’m having a hard time with this little tiny computer. Anyway, this monk sets himself on fire and burns to death in the lotus position, and he doesn’t even scream out loud.

            Can you believe that? Do you know what it would be like to be on fire?

            I’d say that guy gave 100 percent.

              Let me ask you.....do you consider the Word of God so pure that one verse can be taken out and it is truth as important as any other......

              Or....does this one verse have more “power” than other bible words?

              Actually....the topic was love and God in the Torah. You throw Psalms in and you do hear about loving God. But the Psalms are not the law. So...anyway.

              I don’t have any problem with that. If it could be expressed as I think you intended, that would be great.

              You know what that means? It means take care of the people in your community and that is a wonderful principle that i absolutely believe in.


              God bless.

                  Just curios.

                  Have you ever been a Christian?

                  thanks.
                  If you want to be true to God and Jesus, abandon any kind of violence at all cost. By advocating any kind of violence, you are misrepresenting Christianity.

                    A Hindu and a Buddhist. Huh. Bad claim. But they were on Hindu and Buddistism. What that has to do with the Bible?

                      Everything.

                      You don’t believe that some people are Gods and others are not do you? Did God make everyone, or just some people?

                      If God didn’t make everyone, and only made some, then where did the other people come from? Who made them?

                      There’s this movie called the Edge, starring Anthony Hopkins, and in this movie he says, “What one man can do, another man can do.”

                      All people are people kOde, and that makes us all the same. Did you know that all different kinds of people can mate and produce children?

                      An Australian Aborigine can mate with a Scottish Highlander and produce children.

                      Does Jesus love all the children of the world, or just some of the children?

                        May Gods blessings be returned to you Jacob.

                        You didn’t answer the question. What does it mean to love the Lord with all your heart, mind and strength?

                        It seems to me that all means all and not some, so I just wanted to know from you how a person obeys that commandment. ?

                          Yes. I was raised a Catholic Christian, and then I became an Evangelical Protestant when I was old enough to choose my own religion.

                            No. I meant their religion. Some people do crazy things for what they belief. Thank God for Jesus that faith sufficient.

                            Yes, agree we're all God's children. But only those who seek Him the only true God will spend enternity with Him.

                            In the world there is many god's.

                              It doesn’t matter what religion they are, a person is a human being...made in Gods image, right?

                              As to the gods, there is ONE GOd, according to our beliefs...right? That means those gods are nothing.

                              It like football players.....you have. JJ Watt, then you have a little 60 pound pop Warner football player. A little guy like that can’t play football with JJ Watt. He’d be instantly crushed.

                                So you decided that serving Jesus does not worth it?
