He certainly said something like that. People keep on dying though....

He said a lot of things. Some people took him seriously, others did not.

Personally, I'm a believer. If there were no God there would have been nobody to create cats. (Good morning, Ray.)

It's interesting - apparently people here think I hate cats. :)

This winter, which is turning out to be rather colder than others recently I have an influx of birds to my garden. Amongst them there is a robin** and a female blackbird that are particularly tame.

Both are ground feeders.

I'm trying to make them much more wary, otherwise in trying to eat enough to get them through the freezing nights they will fall prey to the "kill for fun" local cats, as birds do every year at this time.

**I have to say how much nicer our tiny little robin is than anyone else's, particularly the American one, which is almost big enough to fight back.

Perhaps the most seminal claim of Christianity, here are instances that directly address this point:

John 3:15-16; presents the claims of belief for eternal life, but not in words spoken by Jesus himself.

John 5:39; Jesus ALMOST directly makes this claim, but instead refers to "scriptures" ..."which testify of" him.

John 6:47; Jesus claims/says outright that belief in him begets "everlasting life".

John 6 :47 - 51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: And the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

Yes, as the answers indicate.

We humans tend to consider death in opposition to life.

Christ seems to be talking about an eternal life that is opposed eternal death.

I wonder if He was giving us a hint about how we should maybe use a different model of life and death in our thinking.
