  1. That is in your heads. How can a question, 'what is a true human being?', be a Gnostic teaching. If I said 'what is a true Christian?' would that too be a Gnostic teaching.
  2. Sorry I asked the question of what a true human being is. Did not expect such controversy and conformity from this Christian online community. It is obvious that I am not welcomed here. Matthew 10:13-15 If the home is worthy, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you. 14. If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet. 15. Truly I tell you, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town.
  3. I did not have any intention of ridicule. I laughed because you insisted on asking the same question which is my question in the OP. Just to let you know, Truth has no versions. So, what is your truth about a true human being?
  4. A true human being is true, because the inner Being is the spirit of God within us. Why hesitate on what you already know is true within you.
  5. Nothing good comes from our self-centered wants and needs. Only the truth bears good fruit.
  6. What exactly makes a True Human Being? If Adam and Eve, before sin dominated them, were True Human Beings, then what is it about sin that made the difference? So, what would it take for anybody, including Christians, to effect a reversal _ to become a True Human Being?
  7. The last will be first, and the first will be last.
  8. How else are we going to learn? Somethings are not just presented to us, often we have to learn through practice. Such as patience. We don't just get patience, we have to put it into action, or in this case - non-action (for patience asks us to do nothing about it). So, we may perceive something that irks our ego, (which is the test), and to pass the test is to don't react to what irks us. I remember my first test lesson in this area, and nearly everything within me wanted to react. Out of sheer frustration, I found myself clenching my jaw and sitting on my hands. I was absolutely surprised how much I wanted to react for ego sake. In retrospect, it was quite embarrassing.
  9. If we are honest to ourselves we will know that the truth will set us free from our fears. Including fears of exposure to past sins, secrets, crimes, etc. God's spirit in us tells us that harboring such fears will keep us in bondage. Those that disagree are not being honest enough to see this. They are not willing to be exposed or vulnerable to their own true past. If they really believed that all their sins have been forgiven and forgotten, i.e., no reason to hide them, then they would be able to fearlessly expose themselves and be vulnerable to judgement. If they fear this, they are still carrying baggage, still hiding in the dark. They preach light from the shadows of darkness. They are not free, let alone saved.
  10. Those who are already confident of going to the Kingdom will find themselves still knocking on the door.
  11. @Blood Bought 1953, @DustyRoad, please forgive my recent posts of intolerance. I did not notice it at the time. The last few days I have been ill from a virus, and being tired and discontent with it all. This intolerance of illness got transferred into my posts. Sorry.
  12. Truth has no versions of itself. Any version of the truth, other than the Truth, is untrue.
  13. So it's eye for an eye you understand. If that is what you believe, perhaps you have already lost sight of the truth.
  14. Those who believe they are the body will die with the body. Hell is for those who believe they are of this world, which perishes. To constantly perish is hell. Our sin is to believe in death. Jesus did not die, only his body died. The price for our sin was paid on the cross of resurrection. Those who believe in the resurrection will not taste death/hell.
