  • Are you spiritually HUNGRY? The solution isJESUS!!!

    [i]There are many religions in this world, and the ABSOLUTE MAJORITY of them are dead. People pray to their gods however many times a day and however many hours, but they never get an answer. Their hearts are as empty and lonely as if they never had prayed, or even worse off ... They fast, abstain from certain foods and beverages and do so many acts of devotion, but they are more depressed than before they did those things, and they get even more angry and wrathful with their fellow human beings and even with their own families. Even worse, many leaders of those dead religions live lives of DECEIT and EVIL, exploiting the members of their own religions and treat those who are not members with such hate and malice that they give their own religions the worst reputations possible. Those dead religions are such that many people are correct when they rather not believe in any gods at all than be a part of them.

    Yet, our hearts are HUNGRY for something SUPERNATURAL, for something that lasts forever, for something that is good and that gives PERMANENT MEANING to our lives. And the fact that the most unhappy persons are those who deny the existence of any and all
    gods is a clear indication that the HUNGER in our spirits cannot be satisfied with MATERIAL things of any sort.

    JESUS has the answer for this UNIVERSAL SPIRITUAL HUNGER , lets read it here in the BIBLE:[quote]
    The GOOD NEWS of JESUS the MESSIAH written by the Apostle John, chapter 6:

    Jesus Feeds Five Thousand

    1 After this, Jesus crossed over the Sea of Galilee, also known as the Sea of Tiberias. 2 And a huge crowd kept following him wherever he went, because they saw his miracles as he healed the sick. 3 Then Jesus went up into the hills and sat down with his disciples around him. 4 (It was nearly time for the annual Passover celebration.) 5 Jesus soon saw a great crowd of people climbing the hill, looking for him. Turning to Philip, he asked, "Philip, where can we buy bread to feed all these people?" 6 He was testing Philip, for he already knew what he was going to do.

    7 Philip replied, "It would take a small fortune to feed them!"

    8 Then Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, spoke up. 9 "There's a young boy here with five barley loaves and two fish. But what good is that with this huge crowd?"

    10 "Tell everyone to sit down," Jesus ordered. So all of them--the men alone numbered five thousand--sat down on the grassy slopes. 11 Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks to God, and passed them out to the people. Afterward he did the same with the fish. And they all ate until they were full. 12 "Now gather the leftovers," Jesus told his disciples, "so that nothing is wasted." 13 There were only five barley loaves to start with, but twelve baskets were filled with the pieces of bread the people did not eat!

    14 When the people saw this miraculous sign, they exclaimed, "Surely, he is the Prophet we have been expecting!" 15 Jesus saw that they were ready to take him by force and make him king, so he went higher into the hills alone.

    Jesus Walks on Water

    16 That evening his disciples went down to the shore to wait for him. 17 But as darkness fell and Jesus still hadn't come back, they got into the boat and headed out across the lake toward Capernaum. 18 Soon a gale swept down upon them as they rowed, and the sea grew very rough. 19 They were three or four miles out when suddenly they saw Jesus walking on the water toward the boat. They were terrified, 20 but he called out to them, "I am here! Don't be afraid." 21 Then they were eager to let him in, and immediately the boat arrived at their destination!

    Jesus, the Bread of Life

    22 The next morning, back across the lake, crowds began gathering on the shore, waiting to see Jesus. For they knew that he and his disciples had come over together and that the disciples had gone off in their boat, leaving him behind. 23 Several boats from Tiberias landed near the place where the Lord had blessed the bread and the people had eaten. 24 When the crowd saw that Jesus wasn't there, nor his disciples, they got into the boats and went across to Capernaum to look for him. 25 When they arrived and found him, they asked, "Teacher, how did you get here?"

    26 Jesus replied, "The truth is, you want to be with me because I fed you, not because you saw the miraculous sign. 27 But you shouldn't be so concerned about perishable things like food. Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that I, the Son of Man, can give you. For God the Father has sent me for that very purpose."

    28 They replied, "What does God want us to do?"
    • 29 Jesus told them, "This is what God wants you to do: Believe in the one he has sent."
    30 They replied, "You must show us a miraculous sign if you want us to believe in you. What will you do for us? 31 After all, our ancestors ate manna while they journeyed through the wilderness! As the Scriptures say, 'Moses gave them bread from heaven to eat.' "

    32 Jesus said, "I assure you, Moses didn't give them bread from heaven. My Father did. And now he offers you the true bread from heaven. 33 The true bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world."

    34 "Sir," they said, "give us that bread every day of our lives."

    35 Jesus replied, "I am the bread of life. No one who comes to me will ever be hungry again. Those who believe in me will never thirst. 36 But you haven't believed in me even though you have seen me. 37 However, those the Father has given me will come to me, and I will never reject them. 38 For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do what I want. 39 And this is the will of God, that I should not lose even one of all those he has given me, but that I should raise them to eternal life at the last day. 40 For it is my Father's will that all who see his Son and believe in him should have eternal life--that I should raise them at the last day."

    41 Then the people began to murmur in disagreement because he had said, "I am the bread from heaven." 42 They said, "This is Jesus, the son of Joseph. We know his father and mother. How can he say, 'I came down from heaven'?"

    43 But Jesus replied, "Don't complain about what I said. 44 For people can't come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them to me, and at the last day I will raise them from the dead. 45 As it is written in the Scriptures, 'They will all be taught by God.' Everyone who hears and learns from the Father comes to me. 46 (Not that anyone has ever seen the Father; only I, who was sent from God, have seen him.)

    47 "I assure you, anyone who believes in me already has eternal life. 48 Yes, I am the bread of life! 49 Your ancestors ate manna in the wilderness, but they all died. 50 However, the bread from heaven gives eternal life to everyone who eats it. 51 I am the living bread that came down out of heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; this bread is my flesh, offered so the world may live."

    52 Then the people began arguing with each other about what he meant. "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?" they asked.

    53 So Jesus said again, "I assure you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you cannot have eternal life within you. 54 But those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them at the last day. 55 For my flesh is the true food, and my blood is the true drink. 56 All who eat my flesh and drink my blood remain in me, and I in them. 57 I live by the power of the living Father who sent me; in the same way, those who partake of me will live because of me. 58 I am the true bread from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever and not die as your ancestors did, even though they ate the manna."

    59 He said these things while he was teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.

    Many Disciples Desert Jesus

    60 Even his disciples said, "This is very hard to understand. How can anyone accept it?"

    61 Jesus knew within himself that his disciples were complaining, so he said to them, "Does this offend you? 62 Then what will you think if you see me, the Son of Man, return to heaven again? 63 It is the Spirit who gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life. 64 But some of you don't believe me." (For Jesus knew from the beginning who didn't believe, and he knew who would betray him.) 65 Then he said, "That is what I meant when I said that people can't come to me unless the Father brings them to me."

    66 At this point many of his disciples turned away and deserted him. 67 Then Jesus turned to the Twelve and asked, "Are you going to leave, too?"

    68 Simon Peter replied, "Lord, to whom would we go? You alone have the words that give eternal life. 69 We believe them, and we know you are the Holy One of God."

    70 Then Jesus said, "I chose the twelve of you, but one is a devil." 71[b] He was speaking of Judas, son of Simon Iscariot, one of the Twelve, who would betray him.

    JIBARO.. does that explain why the highest crime rates, psychological illnesses, immorality, indecent life, the most percentage of athiest EXIST IN THE CHRISTIAN COUNTRIES. while ISLAMIC countries have better values,.. even Bhuddist countries have better values...

    that's WHY many christians(or from Christian countries) are turning toward other religions especially ISLAM.. and Bhuddism.

    well.. i can see in your message a good description for the Child-Molesting Priests

      Dear Muslim Voice:

      [i]From all the documentaries I see about Afghanistan, Pakistan, Beirut and Egypt, I really doubt that Muslim societies are less crime ridden and less violent than living here in the USA.

      But to answer your short outburst of ignorance, the BIBLE says clearly that if someone is still bound to immorality and crime that person shows that he/she is not a TRUE Christian:
      1st Letter of the Apostle Paul to the Corinthian Christians 5:9-13

      9 When I wrote to you before, I told you not to associate with people who indulge in sexual sin. 10 But I wasn't talking about unbelievers who indulge in sexual sin, or who are greedy or are swindlers or idol worshipers. You would have to leave this world to avoid people like that. 11 What I meant was that you are not to associate with anyone who claims to be a Christian yet indulges in sexual sin, or is greedy, or worships idols, or is abusive, or a drunkard, or a swindler. Don't even eat with such people.

      12 It isn't my responsibility to judge outsiders, but it certainly is your job to judge those inside the church who are sinning in these ways. 13[b] God will judge those on the outside; but as the Scriptures say, "You must remove the evil person from among you."

        OH PLEASE, JIBARO!!!

        What on earth are you talking about? Mainstream Christianity celebrates Christmas, and that's a pagan holiday.

        I see nowhere in the Bible where it mentions that Jesus was born on Christmas, December 25th. You talk about other religions with their false gods and false teachings, but you fail to mention the origin of Christmas. I was completely surprised when I did some research and found out where it originated. Read up on most encyclopedias and you will find facts on this holiday. All the years that I've attended church and letting me to believe that Christmas was the birth of Christ was all a big fat lie. I was awfully disappointed when I found out, and till this day, no preacher can show me anywhere in the Bible when Jesus was born. It's paganism, and you know that paganism and christianity should not mix.

        So you see, it makes no sense for you to tell others that they're worshiping other gods or teaching false doctines when you guys are doing it yourselves. Go figure!!
