Sput Thanks for taking the time to answer my post. The reason I asked you about the Cross, the Red sea, miracles etc is because I was making a point. You pretty much answered it in your answer about the red sea. I asked you if the parting of the Red Sea was figurative? . Now to me the there is no dought in my mind that God parted the Red Sea, yet your not certain if he did or not. So my point is this. How do u decide what is figurative and what is not? How do you know when you should take Jesus seriously or not? Does God/Jesus say what he means? Does God/Jesus mean what he says? Show me your answers with the scriptures including the one about the sould that sins dies so I ccan research them for myself.
