Again thanks for your exchange of views. Please let me know if I understand you correctly. Because you can't see, hear, touch, smell and taste GOD. You don't believe? I understand in science theory means what we know now until we find something better. It doesn't mean fact even thou it is where the evidence points to. Science theories are subject to change based on new evidence. Which moves it away from fact. This is why my original questions ask you to write about facts of science and not theories. Does science explain anything before life or after death? Is it possible to have laws without a law giver or maker? It seems like some Theories are bases on random events. If everything that exists is based on randomness wouldn't we see more chaos and disorder vs harmony? Is science a form of religion? Or is it anti-religion? Are you a scientist before atheist or atheist before scientist? Have you ever thought what if an Almighty GOD who created all can't and will not be explained by science? What if The Almighty GOD made and choose one way for you to know him. Before I humbled myself and prayed to him I couldn't see proof anywhere now I see his handiwork everywhere. The proud will never find evidence of GOD existence.
Friend would you help me understand you better? Which facts/laws of science oppose GOD? Why do you choose words that insult others? This isn't the way to understanding or is it? You said you have to do this in order to counteract the fundamentalists here. Correct me if I'm wrong but when I read other debates most are arguing against theories not science as a whole? Why are you angry towards Christians? I thought biology is the study of living organisms. Why would you that is life? Please don't get upset at my questions. I really am seeking to understand you.
SlapShot seek understanding. Based on your statement you don't understand Christians and according to Shoutoutloud you don't understand atheist either. Please try to understand this to Christians GOD is life. Christians love GOD more than anything else. But you didn't know this neither can you understand this. You continue to put science up against GOD as if it is some type of weapon. The facts in science don't oppose GOD just the theories.
Wonderful to know you are seeking to understand the Bible. Matthew and John are two of the four Gospel. Witnesses of Jesus life as a man. When two different people witness an event their recollection of the event will be different based on the point of view. That doesn't mean they are contradicting one another. This actually helps us get a full picture or understanding of the event. So to answer your question yes he kissed him.
Acts 1:18 is going to be hard to understand because your heart is hardened. “And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.”
Matthew 27:6 KJV
The priests could not take the money so they spent his money for him. Example if your mom gives you $5 to buy her some milk. Just because you went to the store does that mean you bought it or could some one say your mom bought the milk because it was her money. So Judas' actions effectively bought that field.
Matthew (27:5) & Acts (1:18)
Again the two scriptures are painting a full picture for us not contradicting. He indeed hung himself and fell headlong. You are quick to jump to conclusions. Just because something is hard doesn't make it impossible. The Bible says he died by hanging himself. Never said he died by falling. Acts is describing what happened to his body after he hung himself. Also you don't know how elevated he was. Also I don't recall him hanging himself on a tree. One that refers to himself as one with basic understanding would be wrong to base his decision on assumptions.
Does it concern you to know you are written about in the Bible? How could some one so many years ago know there will be people around who will think like you. Here are a few scriptures that answer your questions. “Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”; and again, “The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.””
I Corinthians 3:18-20 “Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?”
James 2:5. “Jesus answered and said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.””
Luke 5:31-32. My apologies for not having them in the right order to answer your questions. You see by making yourself full of worldly knowledge you have no room for GODLY knowledge. The poor, least-educated and sinners (convicts) have humbled themselves and ask GOD for help. This is why salvation has come to us. Try something go in a room alone close the door humble yourself and ask GOD for help. You have nothing to lose. You don't even have to tell anyone just keep it between you and him.
List of Good things all created by God:
Life, Love, Father, Mother, Wife, Husband, Son, Daughter, Brother, Sister, Friend, earth, fresh air, food, laughing, singing, smiles, being cozy, greetings from anyone happy to see you, having relations with wife or husband, first date, first kiss, sunrise, hiking, campfire, random acts of kindness, spring, fall, a starry night, walks on the beach, swinging at the playground. I could keep going. I think you are missing all of God's work.
Our country in many ways have turned away from the Word of God. They have passed laws directly against God's Word. You would like to blame this and every bad thing on Christians just because we are the majority. Your claims are false. Just because someone says they are a Christian doesn't make them one. Here is what Jesus said (““Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”)
You are blinded by satan's lies he is trying to corrupt Christianity. “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.”
