Well this thread went off topic real fast. If you really want to be mature about it, don't do it on a religious holiday. X'D I think you know that though so. But other than that. This thread had this path coming lol
These discussions just aren't the same without Ruhk and Roose.
I'm sorry I'm going to go with Zeus also. Father of Olympians
meaning he's a daddy... And I can't recall how many women he's slept with so he's a stud, lightning charged sex machine
join me now for a pastafarian prayerWell the FSM is just assumed to be above all other gods obviously, that wasn't even worth mentioning!
What does the phrase "Jesus is Lord" mean? Is Jesus God? Is God just fucking w/ us and Jesus is just a puppet?
Jesus/God/Holy Spirit (or Holy Ghost) are all the same being. It's like how a woman can be a sister/daughter/mother all at once. Same entity, different face. God is, well, God. He is too holy for us to be able to actually look at Him or be in His presence, which is why He came to earth as Jesus. Jesus was fully human and fully God at the same time meaning he felt all the pain us humans feel and felt all the emotions we feel and went through all the issues humans went through then, but he could not sin because he was God. This being said, he did not want to do what he was required to do. In the Garden of Gethsemane while he was praying he asked for the cup (his death) to be passed from him. He knew it was going to be torture and the human part of him did not want that. Of course, he did what he had to do and in doing so took away the middle man (the priest and sacrifices and Old Testament laws) that used to be required to commune with God and become saved. The Holy Spirit is how God is generally seen to interact with humans. When someone is "saved" (which means they accept Jesus as their savior, acknowledge he was the son of God who came to provide forgiveness for our sins and a pathway to God) it is generally credited to the Holy Spirit having moved in the person's heart and the person having acknowledged this. It's hard to explain to someone who is a non-believer (not that I'm calling myself a believer, but I used to be), but when in church or something.....sometimes there is a palpable feeling in the air that is hard to explain other than saying it is the Holy Spirit being there (for God says where two or more are gathered in His name, He is there among them).
Does any of that make sense?
I've always been told Jesus is the son of God, not actually God himself.
