there are a lot of posts on what "his" opinion may be...

what if he told you his opinion... and you disagree with it?

where would that leave you?

No, there are many people who know a lot of people but can not talk to them.
I just think it is sad that with all the people in the world some can not sit down with a close friend or family member to talk to when times are hard.
But if these people chose religion then thats fine, at least they have found something. But just shows how some humans can not trust their fellow man they have to follow "teachings" from a book...its ok, but not what i would call free will as they follow the same person or entity.
Right, so it's not lonely people, it's people who can't truly open up to other human beings and so they must share  their innermost thoughts with Jesus because they can't with anyone else???  An equally preposterous proposition, if you ask me.

I respect your opinion.
So why do some people open up to jesus?

I am not religious, but this does not make me anti religion.

Because if you believe Jesus, then he is God, the creator of all that is and was and will be.  He created our very lives, and we owe everything from the clothes on our back to our very existence to him.  Then, if that were not enough, again if you believe Jesus, he came to earth as a human being, humbling himself - the Lord of all creation living as another human being, washing his disciples feet and ultimately submitting himself to torturous death on the cross.  All for our sake.  

Thus when I choose to have a relationship with a being who I believe did all these things, I talk to him through prayer and he talks to me through the Bible.  That's how relationships develop - two-way communication.  Just as my relationship with my brother or friend at church or prospective girlfriend develops through communication, so my relationship with God develops through communication.  


Just something to think on :)

simple question...
lets see what folks have to say...

I ask him questions every day, so this question is rather redundant...

Although based on the thought of him physically being here for me to speak with him, I don't know whether I'd have any specific question for him or not. I think I'd rather just take time to get to know him. I'd like to better understand his overall demeanor and personality...

Jesus Christ - Matthew 28:18-20 said:

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

To be quite honest, I wouldn't be too keen on asking Jesus a question. I'd much more like to ask, say, Einstein a question, or Aristotle a question.

It would only be worth asking Jesus a question if he was actually the son of God - and I'm very far from convinced about this. If he was not the son of God, what would be so special about Jesus answering your question? You'd just be provided with an answer from a common man, who was neither particularly intelligent, nor particularly philosophical. In fact, if Jesus were just a common man who lived 2000 years ago, you'd be hard pressed to receive an answer that could benefit you in any way.

If, on the other hand, he really was the son of God, that would change everything. I'd have a lot to ask him. If I had to choose one, I'd ask him to explain clearly what happens when we die.

Thats ok, but I do not believe in jesus or god. I love communicating, and when i do communicate with people, its nice to know that you can get an answer with out having read the reply you want to hear from the writings in a book. " you are forgiven" and all that.
If you believe there is something out there listening to you, fine, but its not quite the same as knowing for a fact that someone is.

If I am wrong, i would rather someone tell me so, instead of me asking for forgiveness....to me thats a cop out because you are too scared of admitting your sins to the living because of the response you may get.

But, each to his own.
peace.

i find it sad to think that there are so many who read about jesus and want to follow him, I am lucky to have my father to look up to, I also had friends I could talk to.
When I lost a close friend or family member, friends and family were there to pull together and help each other through the hard times.
I understand if people have no one to talk to or help them through grief so they chose religion. But its a sad state of affairs that so many are without someone alive today who they can be close to.

Nobody knows me like Jesus...

I have friends and family too. But nobody can compare to God and no-one can know you as intimately either. Comunicating with God lights a fire in your heart and puts silk on your soul. Its not sad at all.
