I must say I enjoyed your agnostic argument concerning the speaking to sycamine or mountain. It was a pretty good sermon if you ask me, except for a few words, that helped others to believe even more. Paul said in Philippians 1:15-17 that however Christ is preached he rejoiced, so I thank you for your help sharing the good news.

Back to the subject at hand-what would be your disclaimer for this passage of scripture: Matthew 13:10-17. For your joy and enlightenment I will help you to understand the meaning of the faith that moves the sycamine and mountain (note Matthew 13:7,22). The sycamine represents internal things that are deep rooted in a persons life(matters of the heart; i.e. pain, suffering, abuse, neglect, etcetera) and the mountain represents external things that hinder and block a persons ability to progress in life (cares of life; i.e. employment, bosses, family, friends, environment, critics, pessimists, antagonists). Romans 10:17 says faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God; the key to this is found back in the reference I made earlier in Matthew 13.

There are real Christians moving mountains and sycamines right under your nose, you just refuse to see it. But Jesus said He can make the blind eyes to see, and those that see to be made blind. If you can figure out what this means then you are on your way to true freedom from the cares of life. Like arguing something as silly as Jesus if you do not believe He is God, it's like arguing Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny. Maybe there are some unresolved, deep-seeded issues (sycamines) in your heart that keep you from believing the truth.

I don't believe I stumbled upon this website, I believe my faith lead me to your door step so you would not have any excuse (referencing Romans 1:20) on that Great Day we meet our creator.

Just something to think about.
