because, his existance, and the status of Jesus as his son, simply makes sense(ask me why, I dare you)


Why? <!-- s:twisted: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_twisted.gif" alt=":twisted:" title="Twisted Evil" /><!-- s:twisted: --> [/quote:1zpitrsn]

Why you evil son of a...just kidding <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> . Uh....why not?...what I shoulda said was it makes sense for me...then again, what makes sense for me makes little sense to most other people... <!-- s:( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- s:( --> . Why's it such a bad thing, tho, to have faith solely for the purpose of having faith? ooops, I said the f word. I think the idea of deviating from (or just not believing) in faith (without interior motives, that is) stems from the idea that somthing like that could only hinder the betterment of society, and that's not entirely true. For, me, I guess, having faith in somthing couldn't hurt...that is if your faith is pure and you don't have any interior motives (i.e. the blind, lazy belief in a god for the sake of self betterment). In other words, my philosophy is faith for the sake of faith...and I'm content with that. But I'd be only too glad to continue this discussion <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> .

As for the whys and whys nots of getting into heaven, I've had problems with that myself. When you have a document that's been translated and re-translated from a pan of several different languages and interpretations, it's hard to say that things haven't been changed up, just alittle. That may sound like trying to interpret the Bible how I want to, but I'm not saying what parts are right and what parts are slightly changed, just acknowledging the possibility... view post
