    Didn't Need One!

    He never traveled more than 60-80 miles from his birthplace and that was either walking or on board a jackass. Hard to say about the middle east 2000 years ago but there are a lot of inbreds in similar scenarios. I wonder if he could pick a banjo.

    I don't know about Jesus needing a GPS, but the Lord knows you need a brain.

    Yes, isn't it funny how our documented historical timeline of mankind shows the growing populous around the globe and the increase of technology and how it effects our lives?

    Do you think that God doesn't know all things, just because He didn't use a man-made GPS at that time? Funny that.

    He told us in His Word what will happen as time passed....and of course it still and always will hold true:

    Daniel 12:4 sound familiar?

    It's been said that after the Resurrection, Yeshua went to India, and there they called Him Issa which also means "Son of Light".

    But, seeing who His Father is, I don't think He would have needed it.

    If there is a god....which I strongly doubt, why would he leave the only keys to the kingdom with a bunch of goat herders who believed in witchcraft and thought the earth was flat. That's a problem for me.

    It would be akin to a young father turning over the only copy of the family records to a two year old child. It doesn't compute and it never will.

    There is speculation that He also traveled through Europe - even as far as the United Kingdom. There's a hymn about it... 'Jerusalem'.

    And did those feet in ancient time.
    Walk upon England's mountains green:
    And was the holy Lamb of God,
    On England's pleasant pastures seen!

    And did the Countenance Divine,
    Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
    And was Jerusalem builded here,
    Among these dark Satanic Mills?

    Bring me my Bow of burning gold;
    Bring me my Arrows of desire:
    Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold!
    Bring me my Chariot of fire!

    I will not cease from Mental Fight,
    Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand:
    Till we have built Jerusalem,
    In England's green & pleasant Land

    What do you mean He left the only keys to the kingdom with a bunch of goat herders who believed in witchcraft and thought the earth was flat?

    Who taught you such things? Was it from "men" who we all know are capable of lying, including ourselves?

    It all comes back to faith in who Jesus Christ is. Do we believe Him and what is said in God's Word that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life? That He died for all the sins of the world? (you, me, every soul). That we cannot redeem ourselves, but that God, knowing we all stumble, loves us so much that He made away to help us? Do we believe that good news, and if so, how can we? Nothing wrong with asking Him ourselves either, to help us understand. Be careful though, He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him :)

    Or do we believe that is all made up only for a "feel good" type of thing? If so, how do we account for our fallen state and how we are fully capable of hurting one another, and the "choice" of loving others or not?

    What IS the Gospel of Jesus Christ... have you heard the good news?

    What are the essentials of the gospel message? <link

    Question: "What are the essentials of the gospel message?"

    He was borne in Bethlehem, and went to Egypt. That, believe it or not, is over 90 miles.
