Many Christians have the wrong idea of eternal life. God is outside of time and time doesn't really exist

Which Church Council?
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

That's why you have to properly understand how "Time" works.

That Only existed when it was now back then. Eternity is not something that comes But something that is. That is what Christians often don't understand. Christ Only spoke about eternity, that is about here and now.

Eternal life is to live in the present. Not infinite duration of time. How can it be of God is outside of time?

It would seem that the eternality of God (not subject to time) is different than the eternality of humans (always subject to time). So whatever people might speculate about God and time, I don't think it can be assumed to have a direct bearing on humans experiencing time.

Maybe if Arius had actually been KOed by St. Nicholas, Robert's Rules would have been in effect at Chalcedon.

The question of whether you're a Christian is up for debate.
based on my threads?

Usually based on study and research of what we know.
I don't Think People can choose to be Christians just like that

Is a whole lot of assumption and thinking of whether you're a Christian.

How do you debate in a Church Council? ...

I wouldn't know. I haven't been invited to one.  Maybe they use or should use Robert's Rules of Order.
If they had had Robert's Rules of Order back at Nicea, maybe Arius wouldn't have gotten KOed by St. Nicholas  ;)

Who's Robert? Don't know.
Eternal life is to live in the present. Not infinite duration of time. How can it be of God is outside of time?

If a Creator created the laws of the Universe.
you don't Think? I think so but it would have been Lovely if he showed himself more often

That would be the classical big bang theory or explosive mixtures of nebulous gas.
But you believe in god?

There is some faint inkling of a god.

If you're Buddhist you belief in Self or more Atheist.
you are buddhist?

I'm in the process of working on becoming more Buddhist.       


PErhaps you should speak with onBuddhists?

Even in ye olde testament times you were still able to choose :)

"Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord." (Jos. 24:14-15)

But I believe God is outside of time. Therefore he doesn't sit like a policeman in time and watches Everything you do. And Adam and Eve is a myth about a real event happening all the time and not two real persons
