    • There is something wrong with your statement. Examine your Christianity there is no darkness in the light and you cannot be saved by Jesus while enjoying Horror and gore

    • There is Christian metal. Plus a lot of heavy metal bands from the 80s were raised in Christian homes, and they accepted their faith when they reached old age. Also, if we’re honest, the Bible is a pretty violent book – more violent than any horror movie ever made because horror movies were made by multiple people who had to compromise their visions. The writers of the Holy books didn’t have to make any compromise because they saw what they wrote as God’s word, so they could get away with bears killing 42 children in The Book of Kings, stoning disobedient children to death in Deuteronomy, and burning prostitutes alive in Leviticus. If you love God and Jesus, then good for you, but try to learn from other people, and not judge others for liking something as harmess as music and movies.

    • Jesus Christ Loves you 💕👑! He is the Way the Truth and the Life! It is a fallen world full of darkness, Jesus is the Light of the World when we are in Him He change us and make us His. HE forgives, heal us, guide and protect us!!!! Jesus is the Only One who can complete us, He wants to havr a relationship with everyone of His children, He is our Best Friend and The Only One that understand us!!! Our Living Hope and Our Life! THE PROFECIES ARE BEING FULLFILED! The rapture is at any second, HE IS COMING

  1. There is no debate over Genesis 1-11. There is only the Truth and sinful, arrogant rebellion. God’s Word is true, even/especially about Creation.

    • The it is clear you have not read your Bible. Even the Christian version of what you call the O.T. has stuff that is only for us jew to do. Yes, the teachings of Torah are for all but not all of it is for all of mankind.

    • Judaism is not a race. I am a Jew by Choice, not a born jew.

      Exodus 12:37 Now the sons of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, aside from children. 38 A mixed multitude also went up with them, along with flocks and herds, a very large number of livestock. 39 They baked the dough which they had brought out of Egypt into cakes of unleavened bread. For it had not become leavened, since they were driven out of Egypt and could not delay, nor had they prepared any provisions for themselves.…

      More Christians need to study their Bible and stop just being told what it says. Read it for yourself

    • RabbiShank congratulations, non-born Jew. What was your previous ethnicity? Thank you for encouraging me to read my bible. that happens on a daily basis. I’m not really sure where you got the notion that I don’t and that someone jist tells me what it says, but whatever, mate.

    • Sorry but I assumed, as A Lot of Christians do not. I don’t think “ethnicity” would be the word to use, but culture. ppl can fight about that for years and have so who knows… 🙂 If you are asking about “race” I’m 1/2 American Indian, 1/2 German. If you are asking what religion I came from, it was Wicca but with an understanding of the man you might call Jesus. Great Rabbi he was. Read his words over and over. So I thought to TRY to be like him, in many ways, and became a Jew. But again, I am sorry, I should not have assumed.

  2. I am a new Christian.
    I am 15 years old.
    I live in Libya.
    I have accepted Jesus Christ about 2 weeks ago.
    I have been capable of getting a kjv from play store.
    that’s the only way that I am capable of getting a bible.
    my parents don’t know about this so I have to keep this in secret and keep pretending to be a Muslim.
    if anyone who can provide me with links to websites or anything that can help me about Christianity and all these things I well be grateful.
    I hope someone can help me.
    peace and God bless.

    • itsasin1969 i hope that you will discover the truth and that devil will stop lieing in your mind and that jesus will set you free god bless you

    • I am not talking about these people. Just verify carefully. I am not suspicious of the makers of this video or anything, just saying.

  4. How many people came to hear Jesus preach? Usually they are described as very great multitude or great crowd. And of those what is the percentage of varying religious belief? Did Jesus specifically exclude anyone? No, Jesus taught everyone that came to hear him speak regardless of their background.
    Who are they? They are mostly Israelites, Galileans and Judeans, people who worship the God of Israel while under occupation by the Roman Empire. But some of them are Gentiles, non-Israelites. One emerges from the crowd is a Gentile woman from Syria who engages in a verbal sparring match with Jesus until he grants her request and heals her daughter (Mark 7:25-30). Eating the crumbs means she was willing to listen, learn and convert.
    The Gentiles ( Greeks ?) were “outsiders” with respect to the blessings Lord God had promised Israel. Israel’s rejection of Jesus Christ as their Messiah is a marker of why the true GOD wanted the world to know Adam is not blessed and none of the descendants of Adam are blessed and never were. GOD loved everyone equally from the very beginning of creation and people had been on earth for generations before the lie of Adam was formed by a human that wanted to be God and form his own religion forcing people to obey his rule and laws because he said it was God ordained. The door to GOD for the Gentiles was always open. Jesus was sent to earth to do away with the false claim of a “blessed bloodline promise”. The lost sheep of Israel are everyone that believe Adam is the first man created and that Eve was created separately and not at the same time.
    Jesus called Abraham the Devil and the sons of Abraham vipers. That is not a blessed bloodline. Jesus came to teach everyone is equal in the eyes of GOD and that thought was rejected by Israel. But that doctrine of Jesus, the WORD of GOD, includes the fact all Gentiles are blessed by GOD from the very beginning, not just the tribe of Israel that was invented in Chapter 2 by a human, “Lord of the land= king” god that was not a God at all.
    Paul’s dissertation that Paul opened the door for the Gentiles when other followers of Jesus did not, is laughable.
    Paul does not understand the entire point of Jesus being sent to earth. Jesus was sent to earth to stop religious wars based on who is Gods favorite people, and false religious beliefs based on laws and dictates that never came from the True GOD.

    Genesis chapter 1..”And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.{ the US spoken of here are the animals and plants that GOD had already created because GOD creates life but it is the fruit of the earth that keeps mankind alive. We do not exist on spirit alone. }
    27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
    28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Note both male and female,them, were blessed, but GOD did not give them names. Note that the truth that plants and animals were created before man( natural evolution) is disputed with the lie of Lord God in chapter 2 as Lord God falsely says man was created before animals.

    • The Bible was written to warn mankind of the battle of GOD and Lord God, Satan< for their souls. There are 2 creation stories in Genesis. The true GODs creation account in Genesis Chapter 1 and Satans, Father of the lie of Adam and Eve version in Chapter 2. The true GOD and Father of Jesus said creation was finished in verse 1 of chapter 2 of Genesis for a reason. To alert everyone of Satans deceit. "Lord" God comes in immediately in chapter 2 with his differing on every point version of creation, stealing the worship that belongs to the real GOD. As an alert to Satan's deception, the true GOD has a mist of water rise to cover the entire face of the ground and then Lord God, the liar from the beginning, claims to make Adam out of dust. There is no dust, everything is wet. Lord God steals the worship away from the true GOD by claiming to be God. Lord God said the serpent was the most subtil of all creation and that is because Lord God is the serpent.

    • Mark 4:15
      “And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.” This is Genesis, Satan came immediately and stole the truth and replaced it with lies.
      Satan wanting to be God and rule in place of GOD took the scroll of death out of the hand of GOD and was cast down to earth with his fallen angels. This is symbolic but filled with true meaning. That scroll was TAKEN not freely given and the only one in heaven that was worthy of destruction of earth is pure evil. Luke 10:18 “And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”
      Jesus will never break the commandment of GOD not to kill. Jesus before the frost of heaven, the second death which is nuclear winter no human survives, returns to rescue his followers only and takes them to the place{ another planet because this one will be destroyed} he has prepared so humans do not become extinct in the universe. Jesus is not 100% human but he is 100% humanitarian.
      It is possible we are still in GODS 6th day of creation as creation by GOD, new life occurs every day. The 7th day is Satans 1 day, the day when all life ceases to exist on earth. Because of WAR, forbidden by GOD but embraced by Lord God for dominance and rule, earth becomes a nuclear contaminated lifeless planet. This is because the 3 religions that believe in Adam and Eve as the first man and woman, desired to be the only chosen of God. 4 stand before the throne of GOD in the last days, these are the 4 causes of extinction of all life on earth. Jesus says the earth has an end, 3 are the main religions that believe in Abraham claiming their “God” is the GOD that rules the universe and the 4th is a country that goes to war over economics. Holy is called out 3 times not 4, the 4th cause of extinction is not religious.

    • The 7th day is the day of DEATH of all life on earth. We are still in GODs 6th day of creation today. There is no 8th day on earth in respect to this symbolic timeline of 7 days. Jesus said the earth will have an end. Hell will be on earth not under it as Nuclear radiation will have covered the earth on the Jetstream in day 7 beyond the survivable amount. This is the fire that covers the earth like the flood of Noah; people must breathe and the air will kill them. People that hide in bomb shelters ( rocks and caves) will die in nuclear winter when the islands flee because there is no more sea just frozen ocean. Jesus will return to gather his true followers and take them to one of his Fathers many mansions( planets) in the universe to save our specie. The universe is the “house” of GOD. This dead earth will stand as a memorial to the rest of GODs creations to show what happens when the law of GOD to not kill is disobeyed. The meek that inherit the earth are atoms ( basis of all life) in fission that are benign without the hate and greed of man.

  5. It’s a good film, but you don’t explain why The LORD God favours the fat thereof Abel’s meat offering, over the crop offering of Cain? Is the LORD god more of a carnivore?
