Now I think I’m interested in you. What do you understand by “walk not by sight but by faith”
The mental man is the man of sight. The meaning of man is mind. So the mankind is the mind kind. The mind controls your senses, therefore if you rely on your mind, that means you’re the person who interprets the world with his mind. So this means you see what you want in life and what you see is sent back to the same mind which gave you what you want to see. It’s like a feedback loop of the same information. This is why many are mentally stuck in life doing the same things all over, and over again. Bc they’re trapped in the loop of time.
When Jesus says the eye is the light of the world, Jesus is telling you that the eyes is the path through which every information enters the mind. Jesus went ahead to say that your eyes mustn’t be influenced by your mind. Bc the moment your mind influences your eyes then you start seeing only what you mind tells you. Thus, many claim God doesn’t exist bc their mind deceives them like it did with Eve 1 Corinthians 11:3.
As a person who want to realize the truth, you must see beyond your mind. You must be able to look at life beyond what ur senses supply. You must look at life with the light that reveals the reality.
It’s ok if you refuse to buy my book. It doesn’t change anything. It’s ur decision and theres little to nothing I can do about it. You have ur decision just as everyone does. All I can say Be not trapped in the loop of reality. Come out of ur mind and see life for what it is.

You are not in any way interested in buda, David! What you are interested in is the sight you see in your mind which is giving you what you want to see like a feedback loop of the same information you already believe and see over and over again in your mind and claim is buda.
When you decide you are interested in buda, you will stop insisting that buda is the image you've created in your own mind and call buda, and you will create a thread to grill and question buda with all your heart and soul and mind and being. And then shall you know buda.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by budaatum: 10:18pm On Jun 07|
There are many threads about my level of reasoning. In fact, every single post of mine is about my level of reasoning, just that my level of reasoning starts with you asking and knocking and seeking with all your heart and soul and mind and being in order for you to discover it as it is not for the lazy to find. If you were lazy you would not have followed me here you see.
That said, start here.
And for Akala there's this:
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by BassReeves: 11:02pm On Jun 07|
budaatum:Whats the basis for introducing and inserting 120 years in that your hilariously funny comment? Where from did you pluck 120 years? What has 120 years got to do with Adam and Eve's sojourn on earth?
'For the LORD gives [skillful and godly] wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.'
1. Did God say anything about the Fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is good for gaining Wisdom?
2. Who then specifically and authoritatively are you attributing this misinformation to, that the Fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is good for gaining Wisdom?
budaatum:I drink deadly or lethal poison and I am not harmed. I thrive on poison. I am poison. I have the antidote to poison. I pick and take up snakes with my hands and handle them with safety
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by budaatum: 11:47pm On Jun 07|
BassReeves:I stand corrected. 130 years in the Garden of Eden since we know they never begat a son until they were freed from the Garden after which they lived another 800 or so years and then "he died".
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by budaatum: 11:50pm On Jun 07|
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by BassReeves: 11:56pm On Jun 07|
budaatum:Grow some backbone and answer all the questions, including the numbered one following the same numbered style instead of sign posting and hiding behind verses you've misinterpreted
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by budaatum: 12:13am On Jun 08|
My backbone or not really is not relevant to the discussion at hand.
Thing is, I am being very selective in the amount of my time you get because its not as if you can see Bass, so what's the point really? I mean, if you can not confess to yourself that individuals who were told they would die on the day that they ate did not die on the day that they ate but went on to live very long and productive lives and to eventually produce your very own self what difference would anything else I say make?
Please know that the only purpose you serve for buda is to produce what others will read and their eyes will open and they may gain wisdom and be freed from the slavery that stops you using your own God given senses.
For it is your choice whether to remain like ignorant Adam in the Garden of Eden, or use your God given senses and be free like Eve.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by budaatum: 12:23am On Jun 08|
BassReeves:What's the tree called again?
Can one gain Wisdom without first gaining Knowledge, Bass?
Can the ignorant be wise?
BassReeves:Its in the book, bass. I should not be being asked what you ought to be able to read for yourself!
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by BassReeves: 12:24am On Jun 08|
budaatum:Ologoṣẹ, that thinks, its an eagle. Smh lmso sigh.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by BassReeves: 12:35am On Jun 08|
budaatum:Answer the easy, simple, direct, innocent, harmless, straightforward questions, instead of all these prevarication and circumventing them
Question #1 required a binary response, of Yes or No, while all question #2 required as an answer was a name and not you skirting them. Smh sigh. KMFT.

|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by LordReed(m): 9:00am On Jun 08|
If this is how to identify true religion then there is no one true religion, there are several that meet this criteria.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by BassReeves: 9:05am On Jun 08|
LordReed:I have given you at least two, namely empathy without flaws and compassion without fault, now you too please reciprocate with the several others you have. Thanks in advance for obliging.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by LordReed(m): 9:23am On Jun 08|
I don't know of any human practice that has no fault or is flawless.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by BassReeves: 9:40am On Jun 08|
LordReed:What fault or flaw is there, in the empty and compassion on you in that scenario above given of coming to your aid, after you fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped you naked, beat and wounded you, and went away, leaving you half dead alongside the road, where later on, I approached you, treated your wounds, cleaned, dressed and bandage your wounds up?. Do you find any fault or flaw in bringing you in my car to a hotel, to take more care of you?
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by LordReed(m): 9:47am On Jun 08|
That is compassion you just described, people show compassion everyday so if that is the true religion then you have your answer.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by BassReeves: 10:28am On Jun 08|
LordReed:Exactamundo, but you still havent said what fault or flaw was there in the compassion shown you in that given scenario
LordReed:You'd be surprised how many people everyday turn the blind eye, feign not seeing and crossing to the other side of the road avoiding the chance to give assistance, a helping hand, relief or succour
LordReed:Not necessarily my answer, but the available body of facts and information laid before us to see
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by budaatum: 11:21am On Jun 08|
I am certain the true religion includes loving your neighbours and those you believe are your enemy even moreso.
Have you tried practising it BassReeves, or are you just a Lordist?
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by LordReed(m): 12:10pm On Jun 08|
While I usually don't care about intentions when people do acts of compassion, it can be argued that some people's intentions might constitute a flaw. Take our politicians for instance and the way they distribute rice and money to their constituents when election time rolls around or those who pretend to offer aid so they can kidnap the recipient or use them for some other nefarious purposes.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by Image123(m): 3:52pm On Jun 08|
That's what the Bible taught you.

The weakness of the mind.
The mind is human tool to create, it’s human tool to form reality, it’s the gift God gives everyone as they come to life.
The mind is weak and this is why the light it gives (logic) is usually faulty. The mind that gives this logic cannot realize the fault and this is why no one can truly see their own reality. They need other people to help them. If every mind has become faulty then a new unattached mind has to be created to show us our reality.
The major weakness of the mind lies in its inability to conceive its own creation and its death. The mind can replicate almost anything within that time but it cannot replicate its own creation. Neither can it tell of its death.
No one is aware of being aware because the mind is not aware of the point before it’s creation, neither will it be aware of the point after its death.
The mind is scared of this two points so it creates a defense against this by denying these points; claiming nothing lies before or after it. This assertion of the mind is very ironic because if nothing created the mind which is something, that means nothing is something. Only a thing can create another just as we experience that only a human can born another human etc. if nothing created the mind then that nothing is something.
This weakness has affected mind kinds since the beginning, this also affected Adam in the beginning. He must have thought he has been forever as God was. This is probably why he never trusted the reason God gave for him to die. It was practically unreasonable to him that he’d die. He was the first mind to be formed, he had never seen any prove that death can occur so he concluded that God had lied.
The Bible records that he was not deceived by anything 1 Timothy 2:14, it was a decision he took because of lack of trust in God. He was sure God was lied. So he had hastily touched the fruit after the woman because she didn’t die. When God appeared after he exhibited even more weakness of the mind by logically proving himself right.
Often times, I have tried to conceive my own death, trying to test the wits of my mind. I think it’s quite a fascinating experience and every time I mention it, people often get scared. This experience as thought me a lot, one can only conceive their dying but not their own death.
Most people are still trapped in the weakness of the mind, they put up logically acceptable arguments why there’s nothing before or beyond the mind. This trade of selling this argument is the backbone of science, philosophy and many religions. Such people are exhibiting the same weakness that Adam felt. They’re trapped within the reality created by the mind.
If we can create a device that wipes out our memory of death, I’m sure everyone alive will argue that death occurs. We’d need at least one person to die to prove to us that death occurs.
There’s never been an experience of what lies beyond, this is why the mind is scared of it. The mind is usually scared of what it cannot grasp. This is why people naturally oppose what they do not know or understand, and why ignorance is the most difficult thing to admit.

DavidAO:I'm sure you are aware that God does not give humans weak gifts! And that mind of your's is the same mind in that in who's image thou art created.
The light (understanding, and not logic!) a human produces by using its mind is not necessarily faulty unless the human stops using its mind, like if one is lazy and whose eye is dim. "Be therefore perfect like your Father in heaven", is what is written, and perfection, like Rome, was diligently built brick by brick over a very long time and not instantly. Rome in this instance being the eye, which is the lamp of the body.
It is not the mind that fears death, but the owner of the mind that fears death. And it is not true that you "need other people to help them", because everyone can approach God to ask and knock and seek with their own heart and soul and mind and being for Wisdom all by their very own selves. One is shown how by Christ, and one even gets the assistance of the Holy Spirit. So why would one need another human to save one unless one is too lazy to bear one's own cross?
I would ask you to start by not conceiving your death, but by conceiving your living right now, because enough is the worry of living today for one not to have to consider the death that would likely come tomorrow, or the day after, or the year after, or after you have lived three score and ten years!
DavidAO:And this bit is just not true. Eve became aware by eating the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and the entire teachings of Jesus Christ is about awareness. That is the definition of "eyes opening".
Think of awareness as consciousness, and your eyes too just might open.

Does the supernatural truly exist?
If anyone asks me this question, then I might need to first ask them to define supernatural. What makes something supernatural? And when do we draw the line between natural and supernatural?
Linguistically, the term supernatural means above or beyond the natural. So when we say a thing is supernatural, we’re saying that that thing is beyond the natural.
Personally, I’ll say a thing that’s beyond the natural does not exist because nature itself is the essence of existence. Therefore, whatever is said to be supernatural will be above nature or completely outside nature. That thing does not exist. Nothing is beyond the essence of existence.
While this sounds like the popular view, I do have some objection to the popular view. I think the popular view on this matter holds to manipulate language with semantics and create a false reality as to what supernatural means.
When you ask someone what’s supernatural, they’d gladly say God is supernatural. When you probe further, they’d certainly bump on a spot where they’ll confess that they think God is supernatural because they cannot perceive him.
This gives us the understanding that the definition of supernatural has nothing to do with nature for most, it’s has everything to do with their perception. Therefore, people say God is supernatural because they think they cannot perceive God.
Whereas everything used to define God is natural. God is said to be light, love, true, wise etc, all these things are just natural so it really baffles me why anyone will say God is supernatural.
So the question might be: does the fact that we can’t see God makes God supernatural? If so, do we also say energy is supernatural? Do we say forces are supernatural? These are things that we do not perceive yet determine the reality, how then should the reality be limited to perception?
Let’s look at life, nature is the essence of life. Do we say a person is supernatural because we can’t see the essence in them? The essence is what life actually is. It’s that which makes the difference between the living and the dead. A body without the essence is dead and decays while a body with the essence is alive and living.
Since essence which determines the reality of a person is beyond perception, can we then say everyone alive is supernatural? This will be ridiculous to the ear and so does the idea that supernatural exist sound ridiculous to my ear. Everything is within nature, we’re only existing within our level in nature.
As a person, I do not believe anything is supernatural. In fact I think the term supernatural is a figment of the deliberately shallow human mind. No one can truly know life unless they first accept that life transcends that which is seen.
In my book the science of God and life, I scientifically proved why an angel is just a natural Being after I encountered one. People who have read the book have had a different understanding of what life and nature so I guess it’s substantial enough for anyone. In fact, the editor said that’s her favorite topic of the book and thanked me for helping her understand life beyond her perception.
Nothing is supernatural, everything is with in nature.

David A.O's book already has some core flaws, I pity the few who would read it and accept everything it says.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by Image123(m): 8:13pm On Jun 13|
You need a copy of the real Bible.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by budaatum: 8:22pm On Jun 13|
I have numerous copies of the Bible. None of them have ever gotten off my shelf to teach me anything.
Perhaps God blesses you more than God blesses buda and so rains down your manna of understanding right into you from heaven above.
I, on the other hand always have to get off my lazy God given ass and open my Bible with my God given hands and read it with my God given eyes and ask and knock and seek with my God given heart and soul and mind and being in order to learn. And I very strongly believe that God would not have bothered to give me all those resources if God never intended that I use them.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by DavidAO(m): 5:09am On Jun 14|
Has the seven (7) days of creation ended?
This question doesn’t look like what a sane mind should ever ask, but as life goes, we’ll all realize that that which we call insane is usually the sane thing do or say and vice versa.
Life itself is very intricate and most things that reveal the delicate parts of life usually sound insane to the ordinary mind. For this reason, Jesus was labeled insane even by members of his own family.
Similarly, many prophets in the books were one time called insane. If John the Baptist were to be viewed objectively, we’d all conclude he was insane. One of my favorite part of the Bible is where Festus called apostle Paul insane because of the information he was giving. Acts 26:24
Yet, a person who has come to the full understanding of their messages cannot say such people were insane, such comment can only be made by a mind that hasn’t gained that understanding.
That said, there’s something quite mysterious in the Bible that no one can realize unless they’re helped by the Holy Spirit. In fact, some have to be helped by his presence in other people to realize this mystery.
It’s whether or not God has finished creating. An ordinary minded person will surely say: yes, God has finished creating, it’s boldly written in genesis. Yet, it’s also boldly written that he who believes in Jesus is a new creation.
This births the question: did God go back to creating after he finished? Did God Stop resting after he finished his works? Did Man’s fall make God go back to creating? Even so, did God not see man’s fall before it happened? Did the man outsmart God?
These questions are important for us to realize what the Bible is actually saying. Here’s the beauty of it all. This is the time of the creation, God has not finished the creation. The man did not outsmart God, ‘the man’ is foolish and God is wiser than him.
This reveals the phenomena “inverse reality” and “reverse-time existence”. This is to say the same (actual) time that everything was created is what we’re living in the reverse and such, the reality we experience is an inversion of the reality. As such, we’re coming from our Past, and heading to the Present. We think we’re already fully Present and headed to the future. Yet, the future is just like a mirage in time.
So technically, the creation has not ended, we’re existing in the creation and all that which is created shall be revealed at the end. After which, God shall observe the rest, which is the 1000 years of inactivity on earth.
The phenomenal reverse-time existence of this world and its inverse reality cannot be fully discussed on this thread as that will entail an explanation and diagrams that might be too much for nairaland, but a person who lays their hand on a copy of the science of God and life will have to decide for themselves if the idea is insane or sane.
Such person will understand why the Bible says the reality is only seen in the mirror (1 Corinthians 13:12). They’ll also understand why Paul says we must become foolish to be wise, and why the Bible says the fool will say in his heart that God doesn’t exist.
If we look around us today, we’ll realize that those who the Bible calls fools are the wise men of this world. Among such earthly esteemed fools are Buddha and Alberta Einstein. No one can fully understand why these were called fools until they understand inverse reality as discussed with a scientific interpretation.
Thanks for reading. I hope you’ve gained something. Here’s a link to the science of God and life for anyone interested.
|Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by DavidAO(m): 5:12am On Jun 14|
Interesting, what led to this assertion? I’ll like to learn that. There’s nothing as interesting as learning one’s own flaws. That’s like the only thing man can’t do and needs to accept help to be able to do that.
Btw, I do not expect everyone to accept everything I say. I think that’s the actual beauty of speaking the truth. The truth does not force anyone, neither does it cajole anyone. The truth speaks and a person will be the author of their own decision to accept or reject.
If forcing everyone to accept our word or ideas was the way, Jesus could have suffocated all of us. Yet, he doesn’t and so we realize that Truth does not reside anywhere force, war, fighting, killing, and maiming is involved
