    No. I'm trying to do two things at once,but the real gospel is in the Bible and I've been reading it for years.

    why did the Pharisees hate Jesus' message? why do so many reject Him? i been wondering this and i wonder if it is that indiscriminate compassion Jesus had that threatens so many? the fact that He loves those considered unloveable? His gospel threatens our mean and poor little hearts which wants to shove God in a box. a narrow little horrible box of religion. and shoulds. and oughts. and condemnation.

    urgghh! i hate religion

    The only true religion is releasing the yoke off the oppresed. everything else is, as @CarlEmerson said, just plastic.

    Well I'm slowly watching it but this guy seems to be taking his time getting to the point. I guess, as far as short and sweet messages I would counter with this video from Nabeel Qureshi, which has both cheered me up (being sad at times) and also doubles as one of the best Christmas messages I've heard in a long time.

    Deeply sad that you feel you need to 'counter'...

    I said it playfully.

    How about instead use the word "exchange" instead, like a Christmas present. Both messages are about Christmas which was something I was surprised at.

    Friend I have been reading the bible for 65 years - I know what is in it.

    When He impacts our lives with Himself then we really know what the heart of the gospel is all about.

    Folks read the book for years and never get the message.

    If you can pay me the respect of watching it carefully to the end you just might be blessed...

    Who is this guy; and why should we?

    The CF rules say: "Post a summary of the videos you post."

    I think you are allowed to exercise your free will - please dont let me stop you.

    As to the summary - We have already referred to the Gospel of Compassion.

    You can put your guns away, it really is quite harmless...

    Well, as I said, my time here is limited. I meant no disrespecy. Please forgive me.


    This is what Christians believe:

    Matthew 22
    34But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. 35Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, 36Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38This is the first and great commandment. 39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.


    2 Timothy 3:16
    15And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

    God bless.
