The way to Heaven and Paradise for all men (post puberty and adolescence) is not through the Pope, Christian priests or TV Evangelists, neither is it through any other such false and wayward preachers of any religion; because most of them are men and with the same mean-spirited thoughtlessness that we ourselves have…
“No one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born over again.”

“You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” – (John 8: 32) –
“When you pray, go into a room by yourself, and shut the door. Pray to your Father who is there in the secret place; and your Father who sees what is secret will reward you.
In your prayers do not go babbling on like the heathen, who imagine that the more they say the more likely they are to be heard.
Do not imitate them. Your Father already knows what your needs are before you ask him.
This is how you should pray:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
Your kingdom come; your will be done, on earth as in heaven,
Give us today our daily bread,
And forgive us the wrong we have done,
As we have forgiven those who have wronged us.
And do not bring us to the test, but save us from the evil one.
For yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever.
For if you forgive others the wrongs they have done, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, then the wrongs you have done will not be forgiven by your Father.” – (Matthew 6: 6-15) –
“Is there a man among you who will offer his son a stone if he asks for bread, or a snake when he asks for fish? If you, then, bad as you are, know how to give your children what is good for them, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him!
Always treat others as you would like them to treat you: that is the Law and the Prophets.
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it. Beware of false prophets, men who come to you dressed up as sheep while underneath they are savage wolves. You will recognize them by the fruits they bear.” – (Matthew 7: 9-16) –
“Truly I tell you; if anyone obeys my teaching he shall never know what it is to die.”
– (John 8: 51) –
“I am the gate; anyone who comes into the fold through me shall be safe.” – (John 10: 9) –
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” – (Matthew 7: 21) –
“I am the resurrection and I am life. If a man has faith in me, even though he dies, he shall come to life; and no one who is alive and has faith shall ever die.” – (John 11: 25-26) –
“I have not come to judge the world, but to save the world”
– (John 12: 47) –
”What I say to you in the dark you must repeat in broad daylight; what you hear whispered you must shout from the rooftops.” – (Matthew 10: 27) –
“Whoever then will acknowledge me before men, I will acknowledge him before my Father in heaven; and whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.” – (Matthew 10: 32-34) –
“Very truly I tell you, he who receives a messenger of mine receives me; in receiving me, he receives the One who sent me.” – (John 13: 20) –
“I am the way; I am the truth and I am life; no one comes to the Father except by me. If you knew me you would know my Father too.” – (John 14: 6-7) –
“The disciples came to Jesus and asked, ‘Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?’ He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.
If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, It would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!’” – (Matthew 18: 1-7) –
“Where two or three gather in my name, I am there among them.” Then Peter came up and asked him, ‘Lord, how often am I to forgive my brother if he goes on wronging me? As many as seven times?’ he replied ‘I do not say seven times; I say seventy times seven.’” – (Matthew 18: 20-22) –
“An expert in the law, [a leading religious Pharisee] tested him with this question: ‘Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?’ He answered, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind. That is the greatest commandment. It comes first. The second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself. Everything in the Law and the Prophets hangs on these two commandments.’”
– (Matthew 22: 35-40) –
“There is no greater love than this, that a man should lay down his life for his friends.”
– (John 15: 13) –

– (Matthew 26: 41) –

“One of the criminals who hung there also mocked and taunted him: ‘Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself, and us!’ But the other criminal rebuked him. ‘Have you no fear of God? You are under the same sentence as he. For us it is plain justice; we are paying the price for our misdeeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.’ And he said, ‘Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.’ He answered, “I tell you this: today you shall be with me in Paradise.’” – (Luke 23: 39-43) –
“For it is my Father’s will that everyone who looks upon the Son and puts his faith in him shall possess eternal life; and I will raise him up on the last day” – (John 6: 40) –

I completely agree with the video and number 4 in particular! For some reason I find well read, opinionated and intelligent guys very attractive. Even more attractive than those who are just fit and good looking. I guess the first type have more charisma in them.
No no, you cant get someone to read by explaining benefits to their brain and improvements to whatever, if you are going to get me to read, you have to go deep into the emotions a book can make you feel
I'd suggest starting out with something like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Quite short chapters, knock one in an afternoon or in the morning, digestable. Or an essay collection. Read 20 pages a day, it'll form a great habit.
Reading should be something incorporated in everyone's daily schedule. A television show or movie simply can't compare in the level of immersion it provides. Not to mention it expands your vocabulary and helps retain information.
I read from time to time, when I find an interesting subject. The last "fever" I got was when reading the Arturian Circle books, I got some insight from an animé I watched that I wanted to check if the facts were true.
0:37 dude...reading doesn't make you smarter...inteligence = IQ...your IQ grows bigger by doing logic exercices ( like mathematics ) but reading only developes your EQ ( you imagination ) !!! EQ is important, but it having a big EQ doesn't make you smart !
+Bogdy Yo Depends on what you read, to say that by me reading financial statements, auto biographies, economic textbooks such as capital in the 21st Century somehow makes me less smarter in terms of iQ would be false, and certainly so in the case of EQ.
I have a big love for reading, and I know that a lot of people are now using the internet for information. And I feel like reading enhances you intelligence and vocabulary. I recently read an article that its most likely in the future that paperback books are not going to be around as much and only e readers (or whatever you call them). It makes me kind of sad that books won't be around for that long. This video really states good points on why you should read more. Read a book.
I'm gonna say that most females I've met in the 21st century typically only read books assigned to them in school so....I wouldn't say reading makes you more attractive to women today.....chiny cars...chiny watches...flashy products....these things get 21st century American women's attention....you don't even have to be remotely attractive anymore...just money and stuff....reading? Ha! Yea right
Every woman that I have met thinks that being a well read person makes you very attractive. I honestly wouldn't date a guy that doesn't like to read. That being said when was your last relationship how long did it last. I have made my point.
I read books made of paper. Soft nice books. Like my bible and dictionary and other historical books. But I' don't like Ready 'virtual" books " on devices made of plastic " make my eye tired over a time. I spend 1- 30 hour or more ready story everyday : I prefer having the material in my hand instead having on a memory. That way I don't worry if server will be active or how much memory I have" I only have my shell full of books " in almost the full ' I sped over 1000 dollar over my books over time. The worth gold for me
"also kinda associate it with someone being intelligent I guess" Let me get at your logic for a second, just because a guy isn't interested in books, nor does he have interest in any of that certain medium, is not very intelligent? That is the most retarded logic I have heard in my life.
+Luka Perc If we're talking about the literal definition of reading then yes, reading one sentence is technically considered reading. But if we're talking about reading in the sense that you're brain develops, your stress levels decrease, your intellect and imagination are stretched, and your attention span has to actually focus and do some work, then reading one single sentence is absolutely not reading.
I always read to my sons and they are richer for it. It's a shame so many kids today are distracted by gadgets and parents don't realize the bonding and learning that occurs when you have a child or baby in you lap for that cuddle time and sharing. If you have any good books to recommend for me to read, let me know!
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
