    Thanks...I agree, whether it was God Himself, or one of His angels...I know God gets the credit for that one.

    I believe I am not much for the king and queen part. I am quite happy to be a humble servant. I might even wash a few feet before I am done.

    I believe that an experience that is consistent with the Bible and is also a fulfilled prophecy qualifies.

    By "stand" and "fall" I gather you mean go to Heaven or go to Hell when we die?

    Doesn't it seem rather odd to judge people on the content of their beliefs, particularly to expect them to believe something that isn't supported by sound epistemology--something that requires faith? That kind of turns it into a crap shoot, doesn't it?

    I believe the claim to be in the likeness of Jesus smacks of falsehood.

    "He claimed to have been divinely appointed as the promised Messiah and Mahdi, in the likeness of Jesus" Wikipedia.

    I believe one must discern between the imaginations of one's spirit and the Spirit of God.

    Experiencing God

    There are three ways of experiencing God:
    [​IMG]

    Sahih International: And it is not for any human being that Allah should speak to him except by revelation or from behind a partition* or that He sends a messenger to reveal, by His permission, what He wills. Indeed, He is Most High and Wise.
    The Quranic Arabic Corpus - Translation
    *veil
    Moses and Muhammad are the examples of the above.

    I believe it means that the belief will most likely determine outcome. A man who believes he can fly and jumps off a tall building will most likely end up dead.

    I believe it makes no sense to think beliefs should be exempt from requiring a sound foundation.

    I believe that enters into the judgement.

    I believe you are correct. Unsupported things are a crap shoot.

    Where does one's spirit leave off and the spirit of god begin?

    Jesus never said that.
