From my understanding, they never disagreed. However, just as with anyone preparing to undergo a daunting task/trial, Jesus was feeling some trepidation. This was a reason he had to go off into prayer so often. The cries he made on the torture stake were that of a man in pain.
Religion itself has done little harm. Man twisting religion has done a lot of harm. I believe those people who have twisted religion would twist something else to try create power for themselves.

I think the confusion comes from what you accept as a Christian. Foot step followers of Jesus do not celebrate Halloween. The apostasy, that the bible warned against, is what is being called Christian and there in lies the problem. 1Tim 4:1,2
Halloween involves things that are not pleasing to God.
Halloween perpetuates the lie that the dead are actually living.
Halloween finds its origin in a Celtic festival, probably the worship of Lug, god of light.

I'm not sure what you mean by afterlife. There are a number of ideas that are in circulation. If you believe that the bible is the word of God than you would like to know what it says on the matter. The bible says when we die that we cease to exist (Eccl :5,10). It … Read more
I do not support abortion for personal and religious reasons. This is also a topic I don't necessarily like talking about because of the lack of emotional control people have during discussion. It's a prodigiously sensitive subject.
I was going to ask what a millennial was, but sm cl answered that. However every generation has said the next one is lazy, I doubt this generation is any lazier then the last one.

Millennials are excellent with technology. I don't see too many younger people who can't handle technology. At my part time job which is a retail store we have many 18-22 year olds. I would say 90% of them have strong work ethics. They don't call in sick. They work hard. They are respectful. I'm 35 … Read more
Pffttt ... No! Seeing an owl means one lives nearby.
