But that's what happens when you quote a book to don't believe; you defeat your whole point.

Again, you never did understand Christ's words so you only paid him lip service. Jesus said to come to him LIKE a child, not as a child. I already explained what that means, with humility, and open minds. That means to humble ourselves and have the capacity to admit that we need a redeemer. But many children to not come to Jesus because their parents are leading them straight on the path to hell and most adults deceive themselves in thinking they know better than Jesus does. so as Jesus tells us FEW will find the narrow road.

It's a possibility. But I could also be right; do you also admit that Christianity is a possibility (I’m sure you do)? There are many people that could be right, but I believe with all my heart that I am. I think you have hit on something very central to the Christian and Jewish faith. I don’t think its any accident that these kinds of truths cannot be known with absolute certainty. After all without faith it is impossible to please God. I think that God has created the world like this on purpose. I think he wants us to trust in Him; I think He wants us to believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. I think this life is the way it is for a very specific purpose.

Its so amazing and so simple, yet so hard to admit we need God.
How can we admit to needing something that we don't even know exists?
