Peace be with you.
After a discussion between MattmanDude, CrazyOldTeenager, and myself, a short (but to the point) series of rules will now be coming into effect for this...

Just a message from an old wanderer passing through.
Lot of information for new recruits packed into a mere article. Also has three medal of honor soundtracks to listen too while reading if you want. Enjoy.
Your new order of business now that you are a member of the Grand Army of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I shared my beliefs with an atheist today about Christian faith and also scientific method does not conflict with the it and the bible. I told him of Jesus and God and why I love them. The person completely agreed with everything I said and now is starting to think God is true and real. Afterwards I had such a nice feeling, like I was blessed and i felt so peaceful and happy. There is something wonderful about teaching the Gospel. You try it guys, teach the word of God to those who do not know of it.
8yr old kids tend to be easily manipulated
And you would know that better than anyone else on Moddb.
I think people in here should wise up. Sharing your own believe is one thing, teaching others that your own believe is the one and only very truth is something completely different and will ruin this place into a ****-hole full with hate-storming.
Also some should think about what it is they believe in, is it christianity or some christian based altered thingy.
I as a bad katholic based being, feel more and more less home here. The amount of hate and "being full of yourself" in here is disgusting, if anyone thinks that christianity tells you to hate on someone or acting like the all knowing than you need to get the **** off and wise up then you may come back and contribute in a constructive way.
Oh and telling people to "**** off" isn't exactly constructive either. Remember what The Bible says about judging and being hypocritical.
Okay, so should we Christians say that Christianity is not the truth? That's contrary to what Christ teaches us to do:
Matthew 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Mark 13:10 For the Good News must first be preached to all nations.
What happens to those who don't hear the word and accept Jesus as Christ? Mark 16:16 tells us what happens to those who accept and those who don't:
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
If we didn't preach our words as truth then we wouldn't be following the words of Christ and we wouldn't be Christians.
BTW, what the hell is a bad based Katholic being? I only found this:
No one is hating at anyone here but if you came here to expect someone saying "I'm Christian but atheism, deism, polytheism, agnosticism, Hinduism, Wicca and Satanism could be right" then you've come to the wrong place. Any "Christian" who says such isn't a Christian. Christian literally means follower of Christ and early followers even went as far to call themselves SLAVES of Christ. Paul himself called Christians the slaves of Christ and the slave must be obedient to his master and therefore we Christians must follow the words of Christ which we know to be true.
"The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them.
When they saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted.
Then Jesus approached and said to them, "All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age."
Matthew once wrote that Jesus taught them to do that. It is you who interprets this as an order for every christian. As far as I understood what I read in the bible Jesus himself did the teaching and recruited men (apostles, btw Paul is a self declared apostle and a very controversial character) to do the teaching. I missed your part where it says that everyone should run around teaching everyone.
I also miss the part where it says that we are slaves, sinners believers followers thats what I can recall.
Teaching the truth... when I looked up Paul I was confronted with a huge load of different versions of bibles. Then when you start reading the background words like "interpretation", "translation", "historically unconfirmed" occur so often that teaching the truth sounds hilarious.
You said it yourself, jesus is the truth. He lived 2k years ago and died for us. Since then he did not come back to teach nor did he sent us any apostles or angels or anything. The bible is given to us by the church not jesus.
A christian better be aware of his unknowing or he just makes a fool of himself. Of course all I write is just IMO and one is free to disagree.
What you say is your opinion, but in reality it makes no sense what so ever. We have to spread the word of God! It is good to, because some have not heard of the coming end, and we should tell them. We are not going to sit down and be selfish like you imply, knowing that people's souls will perish. We are going to try and tell them of the good news, and try to save their soul as well as ours.
So Jesus said he would be with the disciples until the end of the age? So the disciples are immortal? They aren't. They all died and therefore it's logical to assume that Jesus was speaking to everyone in his time and in the future who would follow him.
Mark 16:15 And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation."
The disciples didn't do this. They didn't go to America, China, Australia or England. So yes, I do think this verse refers to what we should be doing as Christians. The Christian faith would have died out if we listened to you and thought that that command was for the disciples only.
Ethiopian Eunuch: "Yes Philip. I shall believe in this man you speak of as the Messiah but I shall not tell anyone."
Or better yet:
Paul: "I accept thee as Messiah Jesus but I shall not tell anyone!"
You say that Christ directed this message at his disciples only but what then about all of his other words? I could easily say that they were only directed to the Jews and people of that time and are no longer relevant today. Might as well say screw The Bible.
Jesus commanded Paul to go forth and preach to people and Paul was inspired by him just like the prophets were inspired by God. Paul was simply another disciple of Christ.
And being a slave of Christ isn't bad. We are free to eat, drink, play games, watch movies, listen to music and participate in other forms of activity. We have chosen to be slaves of Christ because we know he's the truth and God's chosen one who is just, perfect and pure.
What?? Who here is hating on someone?? Please give examples.
No one is hating, it is us defending our faith against the atheists who come here and insult us. (Which we forgive anyway)
Anyway who was that comment directed to because it is not good to generalize
