imo faith is something like "i have faith in my friend to pay me back" or "i have faith that my child will turn out alright"Faith, everyone has heard of God, its silly to use the example of someone living alone on an island.
Yeah if i see it I'll have to believe it.I'm not entirely sure what happened to idkkdi's comment, but he made a good point.
In response to this, Jesus performed several miracles which allowed people to believe in Him. If He is to come to this world a second time, I believe He'll have to do the same to ensure people know it's Him.
Of course it would contradict scientific principles. However, if it were to somehow occur during our lifetime, I highly doubt anyone with a lack of faith will still reject it.Yeah if i see it I'll have to believe it.
Just turning water into wine just isn't possible and if u tell someone nowadays i got pregnant from god noome would believe you but 2000 yrs ago it turns into a religion
what is the point of having faith in some possibly mythical being in this life?
Interesting choice of words. Why does God have to be equated with mythical being? That word carries the assumption of fictional/made-up.Just turning water into wine just isn't possible and if u tell someone nowadays i got pregnant from god noome would believe you but 2000 yrs ago it turns into a religion
It would be a bit bizarre wouldn't it haha, but that is not the caseIsn't it kind of bizarre that these miracle performing prophets waited ~198,000 years after the first humans came to exist before choosing to appear on earth, when if they had waited as little as 2,000 years more, they would have been alive at the same time as video cameras existed? Fair enough if it were at the beginning of humanity, but it was an arbitrarily short time before their presence could be filmed. Instead of making the safety of people's souls dependent on 'faith', why not just wait a little while longer and let people film these miracles?
Isn't it also bizarre that these prophets could perform miracles but were as constrained in communication method as every mortal man on earth and were therefore dependent on their messages being communicated to future humans through written eye witness testimony?
"I'm sending this prophet to save you all going to hell, but they can't use their supernatural powers to communicate with anyone they didn't directly come into contact with and you have to take the word of bronze age people whose accounts have been edited and translated countless times. No, they can't use their miracles to fulfill their purpose of spreading my word, they can only use it for turning water to wine and stuff"
