Jesus is not just a name. What most people don't realise is that the story of Jesus doesn't end, He is still living in the people who have accepted His lordship. People who truly believe in Jesus believe in a living entity who will walk with them every step of the journey of life.

well, if it's just something, then what is it? i hate to tell you this, considering the point of the thread is that you dont have time to read the Bible, but...read the Bible. if you want to know who Jesus is, read the new testament gospels, Mathew through John. Jesus was a very real person, and this is clearly shown in those books. and also, dont do it because you're afraid of going to hell. all good things, all pleasure, come from God. if you know God, you will experience extraordinary pleasure. but dont do it because of that either. do it because it's worth it to know God.

yea well a big part of why it anyone would do it is for both those reasons! (one of those reasons may not be as strong as the other) why it owuld be worth it to know god..and to know god = thanks but also psyclogial comfort that can range from all degrees (man why'st it so hard not to sound too vague)

oftentimes they start to look at God for those reasons, but once they get to know God, they recognize that simply knowing Him is motivation enough in itself. that was a tad vague. explain what psycological comfort you are refering to

The key point to salvation is believing that Jesus Christ died and rose again to redeem you of your sins. If you don't believe that He specifically did it then what do you believe?

ok so if i believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again (again still all i think of jesusu is that name kind of howhe looks and the story (Jesus Christ died and rose again.. etc).. so from gaining that knowledge from ugn top science forum.. is enough to redeem me (assuming i follow through and belive it as its said)..?? so i didnt have to read the bible to be reedeemed? and again since we can have a variety of mental images of 'jesus' its hard to believe that believing in what we believe of him will reddeem us.. but actaully thats better for another topic.. so ignore that and just what i said before is enough i guess..

oh and secret.. i didnt meani was being vague about being psycogicaly comforted (i can give amny obvious resaons now) i meant vagur more reffering to the degree part on actully the english language in gerenl to a degree hard to express so seems to comeout vague to the perciever that wasnt your own mind feeling with the motive to express it (that would know own feelings so wouldnt be vague to itslef)

in order to be saved you have to ask Jesus into your heart. if you do it sincerely, you will know very well whether He is there or not. How Jesus looks does not matter. at all. how you picture him is unimportant. you need to realize that you are a sinner, really realize it, realize you need a saviour, then ask that saviour in.
