@Smile...Here is...." Creed".....by Petra!
Yes, I am a born again Christian and proud to say it
Love to all ♥
The Apostles' Creed
Modern English Version (From the Book of Common Prayer)
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
The Apostles' Creed
Traditional English Version
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
But what if your faith promotes things that offend God?
An old song I used to listen to on the radio as a young child sums it up:
"I believe in every drop of rain that falls,
A flower grows.
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
a candle glows
I believe for everyone who goes astray
someone will come to show the way
I believe above the storm the smallest prayer
will still be heard
I believe that someone in the great somewhere
Hears every word.
Everytime I hear a newborn baby cry
or touch a leave or see the sky
then I know why
Old, old song (makes me feel ancient) which I would love to hear revamped to fit today's music because it says it all...please don't laugh at me..I'm an OLDER fan
It doesn't matter what faith we have...the world is made up of so many different faiths and beliefs..as long as we love one another and have someone to look up to..
Michael Jackson has helped me see the world and the things I love in a whole new way...Thank you, Michael!
PEACE AND LOVE
Loving hugs to all,
I just asked for a Yes or No answer. I never attacked you or questioned your faith.
Yes, I do. It is the arrogance of man to think there isn't a being greater than ourselves.
I'm not here to defend my choice of faith, frankly I don't feel like I have to.
I'm a good person who does good things and makes the right choices. I'm good with myself and that's all that matters. Whether someone agrees or disagrees has no bearing on my faith.
I'm not going to engage any further on this subject with you since it is obvious that nothing I say is going to satisfy you.
No hate, but I think you have an agenda and "calling me out" about my beliefs and what I may or may not believe in will not only hijack a great thread but also cause a disruption in the harmony of this entire MJ community.
I'm not picking apart your faith. I asked a simple questions- who determines goodness?Humans?
A sense of decency. I mean really, of we are incapable of discerning right from wrong, we would ALL by definition be in a mental ward.
I'm unsure of why you are picking apart my faith when I haven't disrespected anyone elses?
I'm all for you and your faith and I think that it's wonderful that you have your faith and belief in God and I give the same respect for everyone and their religious beliefs.
Christian does not always == bible nor religion. Satan himself, twisted the scriptures. My point was that we are mere imperfect humans and its not about what makes us happy. Imperfect sinful inclinations make us happy no matter how good of people we are. What can we base our goodness on?
@maybe...a song from the ..Monkeys..
yeah, yeah, you aren't old enough to remember them.
I'm a HUGE Monkees fan!
I have the red guitar logo on my left ankle!!!
I'll take this to PM now.
And God and the Bible just aren't my bag. It's fantastic that people can find comfort in god and the words of the bible, it's just not for me. I did a 12 year stretch in catholic school, so I'm not totally ignorant to Christianity and Catholicism.
I'm all for people having faith, not for people breaking laws. (even though technically, me being bisexual and marrying my German girlfriend is against the law in the United States.)
The OP asked if I (being a member of this forum) believed in God and I gave my answer.
I believe that people shouldn't be idiots. I believe that you should be a decent human being and not kill animals, abuse the elderly and do whatever you can to help fellow humans. I'm not judging ANYONE by their religion or lack thereof. I think that faith is a very powerful thing, whether you are a member of an organized religion or not. If you find comfort in God, Jesus, Allah, Buddha, Taoism, whatever. As long as it works for you, is what I find important when it comes to faith.
Life is a gift and it should not be squandered on doing bad things and being an a-hole of a person.
Live and let live, but don't be an idiot! : )
Exactly, but you said just do what makes you feel comfortable. That's the complete opposite, we are supposed to live by God's laws. This isn't a debate about religion its about God and the bible in general.
Tatum, if killing people makes one happy then one should seek the appropriate professional help!
What if killing others makes you happy?
While I don't believe in "god" as a figurehead or any sort of organized religion, I believe in being a decent human being and that doing good things in life is in and of itself rewarding. I do not begrudge anyone's faith no matter what they believe in. Whatever get's you through life and you find comfort in is all that matters. No matter what religion you subscribe to, if it feels right for you than it's a good thing. Just because *I* don't follow it, doesn't mean that it's wrong for others to. Live and let live. : )
It's not the people that God doesn't approve of its the acts. The same remains for fornication and judging others.
Claro, en Jehová Dios. juan 17:3
YES! I believe in God the father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit...the Trinity as one. I also believe it's about the relationship you have with him and not religion....But, I do think a relationship with Him is a must.
With the L.O.V.E. to ALL!!!!!
I think there is a God.. Or that something's out there. I go to church every Sunday but it seems like I'm believing less and less. I wish I had more faith :/
andrea72:same here!! i believe in god and jesus ALL THE WAY but i don't follow any religion. u can believe in them and not have a religion.
Yes i do very much, but i do not follow any religion.
Yes I do believe in God. I think I am a cross between an Anglican and a Jehovah's witness. I have a problem with the Trinity. But I believe in Jesus very much. I love Jesus. I believe God's spirit worked through Jesus. But I do question that Jesus was actually God himself. I thonk Jesus was divine, but not GOD himself, if that makes sense (hence my issue with the concept of the Trinity).
I believe in God very much. The world is just too complex, too vast and too beautiful to be pure coincidence. There has to be a creator, so yes i do.
i belive in god. there is a explanation on how and why things happen in this world. and we as humans dont know it but god sure does.
KEEP THE FAITH
Yes I do believe in God - i'm Catholic
Nice poem.... God is a genius!
Happy Sunday to ALL.
This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
For God is Good all the time, and all the time, God is Good!
Much MJs Love and God's Love and my Love to ALL!
Yes i do belive in God!
I pray to him, everytime i need some help or when i have problems!
i also belive, that everyone of us has his gaurdian angel!
