MurrayS,

I guess Goofy's response fits the specifics of the question, but not the intent IMHO.

Exactly. Goofy and I go way back. He likes to nit-pick my wording rather than use the obviously intended meaning. Thanks for

tketola,

well, I only responded to your post because you posted a blatant/uniformed lie, and after I proved you wrong, now you are trying to obfuscate the issue.

Nothing I said was a lie. Nothing was incorrect, unless you

No, it takes a change of heart. If one approaches the subject of God in defiance and hubris, don't bother waiting for anything.

What if one approaches the subject of God with questioning and continuously seeking to

Why are you interpreting Jesus's words that way?

Because that's what the New Testament says Jesus said. I was posting from memory, so the details may be off some. But the general idea was that Jesus told his

The other element regarding whether Jesus existed is that some people do not want Him to have existed.

I told God one day, at the age of 26, that I would leave all my pre-conceived opinions behind me and accept the truth no matter what. He answered my prayer and revealed himself to me. It was the Holy Spirit that opened
