Christians, please have some sense when you quote JN 1:1, will you?

Question by Jerry K: Christians, please have some sense when you quote JN 1:1, will you?
” In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” JN 1:1.
Does this mean “In the beginning was Jesus, and Jesus was with God, and Jesus was God.”?

The text does not read “In the beginning was Jesus”. John did not write the word Jesus in his original manuscript. If he had meant that, he could have simply used the name Jesus. John wrote what he knew to be the Truth. In the beginning was the “Spoken Word” (i.e. God’s Command). “Jesus” happens to be a SUBSTITUTION of the Greek word “Logos” used by the apostle. In reality the bible readers are implying, suggesting, alluding or insinuating the name of Jesus. The concept of SUBSTITUTING the original Greek term ‘Logos’ with “Jesus” has been the traditional norm for the past many centuries. Hence it is not easy to believe otherwise. Is this “substitution” any where closer to the literal translation of the Greek word “Logos”? The answer is, No.
With the traditional “substitution” the verse reads; “and Jesus was with God and Jesus was God.” How can Jesus be “with” God, and “was” God, as well? It defies the logic(the chain of thoughts).
The LITERAL translation reads:
In the beginning was the ‘spoken word, command’, and the ‘spoken word, command’ was with God, and the ‘spoken word, command’ was Divine. JN 1:1

The opening of John’s Gospel coincides perfectly with the prologue of the Book of Genesis which reads; “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And the God said, Let there be light; and there was light.”
(Genesis 1:1/ 3)

If you need to LIE, LIE Intelligently please. The people are getting cleverer and smarter. Its just a matter of time the TRUTH shall be known.

If sex outside of marriage is sinful, are Christians in effect forcing gays to be more sinful than normal?

Question by Save Yourself: If sex outside of marriage is sinful, are Christians in effect forcing gays to be more sinful than normal?
If the job of Christians is to reduce sin, then wouldn’t permitting gay marriage be a reduction in the overall sin of the world, since at least the gays would be married?

The rules for getting married are never clearly defined in the Bible…perhaps this was intentional for this very reason.

Why do some christians think that salvation is depended on whether a person remains a christian or not?

Question by Helghast Wolf: Why do some christians think that salvation is depended on whether a person remains a christian or not?
Also christianity is accepting jesus into your heart. Yet there are those who think that if you leave christianity you never were saved. So why does a gift of salvation is believed to be tooken back when a person leaves christianity. Also sense christianity is based on salvation does that mean one is a permanent christian regardless of what one believes. Sense that person accepted Jesus and was not false about his accepting Jesus.

It doesn’t really matter what you are now.

It only matters what you are the moment you die.

Hey young Christians do you like your church youth ministry?

Question by : Hey young Christians do you like your church youth ministry?
The baptist megachurch I was raised in has a horrible youth ministry program. I just found one a friend invited too in a midsized charismatic church that I love. I was just wondered how your experience was with finding a good youth ministry.
