How To Spread The Word Of God?

How was God’s word supposed to be spread? If he was unwilling to reveal himself & speak his message himself, how? Most of the world was illiterate. There was very little written communication & even less travel, many areas of the world not yet discovered. 2,000 years have elapsed and most people are still destined for hell, either because they have not heard of Christianity or because the salvation legend is especially vulnerable to skepticism.

  1. Hi there.

    May I ask what is the basis for the statement “he was unwilling to reveal himself & speak his message himself”? That is a very limiting and important presupposition.

    Thanks!

    Sure. Simply, God did not appear on a mountaintop before his people and speak to them himself. Having done so, all would believe.

    this is a bad website you are supposted to spred the word not incurage people to not to believe.god is not a fake he is true, how do you think you got on this earth. it was god not any one else.yes he may be dead but his sprit is still alive.this is the reason the world id so mested up because people like you ,dont believe.if you dont believe you will go to HELL you will burn in your fure.that is not a good thing if you want i will give you some advice on god.

    • If you’d like to make a convincing case it would be favorable to use proper grammar and spelling. I think you’ll find doing so lends credibility to your supposed intelligence.

    Thanks, sssssssssssssssssssssss, but I need you to be more specific. Thousands of gods have been invented by man, worshiped by man, and dismissed by man over the years. I assume you, just as I do, dismiss them all as being false. All except YOUR god. YOUR god was the one time man came up with a real god, right? Ok, fine, but please remember when speaking in terms of gods, that there have been and currently are MANY who worship a god other than the one you do. Or none at all, as I do. You say I’m supposed to be spreading the word of your god and that your god is not fake and that your god put me on this earth and if I don’t worship your god I will go to a place called HELL to burn and you would even be willing to give me advice on your god. So, ssssssssssssssssssssssss, I must ask you to be more specific. Which god is your god? Zeus? Baal? Ra? Is it the Christian god? If so, which version of the Christian god? Baptist? Mormon? Pentecostal? Methodist? Presbyterian? Jehovah’s Witness? Seventh-Day Adventists? Catholic? Amish? Christian Science? Or is it one of the 80+ other sects? Apparently it’s important that I choose the group that interpreted the bible the ‘right’ way, yes? And that is, of course, the group YOU belong to, yes?

    As for giving me some advice on your god, I think I’ll pass. But thanks for your kind offer. It’s just that my many, many years of studying the bible has provided all the ‘advice’ I need on the Christian god.

    Take Care.

    well said.. although I am curious as to what specifically does the bible say to you to encourage your beliefs?

  6. this reply goes to sssssssssssss first off there has never been proof that GOD walked, roamed, or even stood on the earths suface the only thing that is said was that jesus was on earth and even that is still just a theory. You stupid fat Whore HA HA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. B-Otch

  7. hey Thomas your so right but to sum it up the slower minded reader, basically he said that people around the world still believe in polytheism and monotheism which of course is of the individuals liking.

  8. God beilever Says:

    I just got to say too everyone you have got a chance! Jesus Loves you and you know it! You are just not trying hard enough!

  9. God beilever Says:

    And to the people that think there is no proof that God walked the Earth look it up on google… on the history website and actually my pastor will talk to you about it go to livingwordbiblechurch.com you will be saved i promise!!!

  10. Well if google says it, it must be true!

    you’ve certainly convinced me.

    -Q

  11. I would like to share you something about Christ in my life. I am/was successful in my life because of the trust I have in God. I am just a piece of dust without God’s grace. He guided me and saved me and my family in all critical days of our life. He has given us two important things in life – 1) Peace and 2) Health and which is more sufficient than any wealthy things in the World.

    One thing we should understand – We are just human and there is no need for the almighty God to come before us and prove that He exists. Even we can’t see the Sun by our bare eyes, then how could we expect to see Him?

    I understand that God created us in this Earth for one purpose ie., He wants us to live a life to choose whether to live eternally in Heaven or Hell. Its like our life in School or Uni where if we work hard then we will get a good career. If we ignore the course / pays no attention to studies then we may end up in nothing but lot of hardship in life.

    Dear friends, We should understand one basic things in our life on this Earth. We live a life where we have absolutely no idea about tomorrow and even the worst part is we have no control of our body ! From the above two things we should understand that we are controlled by someone else who is undefinable and more powerful than any other thing in this world. So, being good to the one who controls us can give us much happiness & peace for ever and ever.

    Its not He who comes to you, but it should be you who pray and request for His presence in your life.

    Thanks for your time. May God bless you and guide you in your life.

  12. God is more real than anyone could ever fathom. “Seek ye the kingdom of god and his righteousness” Mathew 6:33 There is a war going on spiritually and physically, be sure your on the right side. You have nothing to lose in finding god but EVERYTHING to gain, seek ye the truth and the battle is already won. The book of revelations tells everything our future is to behold; make sure your heart is in the right place.

    PS- SaS your words were beautiful, thank you God Bless

    Faith exists without god. It is one of the many human conditions that have been used to enslave the people for centuries. You are working for the evil empire, heart, soul and sinker. When you give your tidings, do you ever think that, money is the root of all evil. When you see your leaders living the good life, do you ever think, what would jesus do if he had a couple of extra bucks. At the end of your life your energy will of been used by forces your bible warns you about. What a waste. There is a kind of war going on and your on the wrong side. Yes god is more real than you know. Look in the mirror. Neveragain

  14. Just stumbled onto this site and I love it! I think it’s awesome that these questions are being posed. I agree with Neveragain about the “leaders living the good life”- why does a pastor need 4 houses and 10 luxury cars? How many hungry kids could that have fed? There are couple of “mega-churches” here in Georgia that are under investigation for all kind of money crimes. Christians really give Jesus a bad name. Christians are why more people aren’t even willing to give God a chance-why would they want to end up like that?
    There’s no way that anyone can have a completely correct and concrete understanding of what the Bible really means in every instance for every person.Theologians have spent a lifetimes delving into the scriptures only to conclude that the mysteries of God are bigger than our comprehension. Christians have such a limited view of God and they try to impose their limited view on others.
    My feeling is that God (in my opinion not a him or a her exclusively) wants me to love and help everybody I can no matter what they do or believe. I try to just concern myself with what God is to me and if anyone asks then I am open and honest.
    The quickest way to turn someone off to what your saying is to force it on them or yell it at them.
    In the post at the top by doubtingthomas, he asked why didn’t God show up on a mountain and speak to his people. I have an opinion on that, this is ONLY MY opinion- God came and hung out with Moses on a mountain in the early Old Testament and after that Moses still doubted God. The disciples saw more miracles than anyone else and they still doubted – it doesn’t matter who does what on top of a mountain, there will still be the doubt sometimes, it’s our human nature. We have to probe and question to really have faith in what we believe.

  15. Neveragain Says:

    I think all people are born equal. What makes us people is universal. So many things miraculous and phenomenal happen every day. Religion has taken what belongs to everyone and then is trying to sell it back to us as if it belongs to them. I think this is why so many people assume that the atheist lives in a world without miracles, because they just cant understand that the miracle belongs to everyone, and maybe a little less by those that try to own them. We are so comfortable living in a world of have and have not that we neglect to ask ourselves what exactly we have. Nothing belongs to anybody. The abundance on our table is directly equivalent to the lack of elsewhere. Reading religious text over and over; especially by those that believe that they are reading the actual words of god, and not the words of politicians, is like spiritual masturbation. Ive witnessed the harvest of souls by christian men known for their indifference to life. Souls ganged up on, lied too and made fearful. Christianity truly is the religion of slaves. Neveragain

  16. I would like to say to all of that if you read the bible then you will understand that god was on the earth . proof of that God walked on the Earth is in the frist book of the bible .Want more ok proof of God talking to man is also there in the frist book . ok not only talk to man but also did some writing .God was the one that gave mosesthe 10 commanded.
    Now to dose who are unbelievers and who question everthing I give you this read . 10 And I, the Lord God, caused a river to go out of aEden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four bheads.
    11 And I, the Lord God, called the name of the first Pison, and it compasseth the whole land of aHavilah, where I, the Lord God, created much gold;
    12 And the gold of that land was good, and there was bdellium and the aonyx stone.
    13 And the name of the second river was called Gihon; the same that compasseth the whole land of aEthiopia.
    14 And the name of the third river was Hiddekel; that which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river was the Euphrates.
    15 And I, the Lord God, took the man, and put him into the Garden of aEden, to dress it, and to keep it.
    16 And I, the Lord God, commanded the man, saying: Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat,
    17 But of the tree of the aknowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it, nevertheless, thou mayest bchoose for thyself, for it is given unto thee; but, remember that I cforbid it, for in the dday thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely edie.
    18 And I, the Lord God, said unto mine aOnly Begotten, that it was not good that the man should be balone; wherefore, I will make an chelp meet for him.
    19 And out of the ground I, the Lord God, formed every abeast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and commanded that they should come unto Adam, to see what he would call them; and they were also living souls; for I, God, breathed into them the bbreath of life, and commanded that whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that should be the name thereof.
    20 And Adam gave anames to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but as for Adam, there was not found an help meet for him.
    21 And I, the Lord God, caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam; and he slept, and I took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh in the stead thereof;
    22 And the rib which I, the Lord God, had taken from man, made I a awoman, and brought her unto the man.
    23 And aAdam said: This I know now is bone of my bones, and bflesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of man.
    24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall acleave unto his bwife; and cthey shall be done flesh.
    25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. 1 And I, the aLord God, spake unto Moses, saying: That bSatan, whom thou hast commanded in the name of mine Only Begotten, is the same which was from the cbeginning, and he came before me, saying—Behold, here am I, send me, I will be thy son, and I will dredeem all mankind, that one soul shall not be lost, and surely eI will do it; wherefore fgive me thine honor.
    So I say to there is still more that you can learn about god and laso why you are here reading this god blass you all.

    • Man of God,

      Allow me to sum up your entire comment … “Because the Bible tells me so.”

      I’m sorry but the bible in way proves any truth regarding what you believe. Perhaps you should visit my Main Page to understand how impotent your comments were.

      Please come back when you can do something other than regurgitate empty, meaningless scripture.
