That rewritten paraphrased lousy edition is not alive.

Ever heard of a walking talking book?

How can it be possible that you can't say that Jesus is alive?

No, the teachings of Jesus are of God and himself delivered to the Hebrew nation.
Cite one instance of Paul's plagerism, just one!
Homosexuals routinely reject Paul because they are Apostates and are "hellbound" anyway. Those who give them aid and comfort are "the devil's fools with the best laid plans."
WrongWay, face it, you are an idiot! Each post layers foolishness upon assumption.
Jesus came to fulfill the Law of Moses given by God. The Law of Moses commanded HOMOSEXUALS and OTHER MORAL CRIMINALS to be put to death. Jesus fulfilled the Law of Moses, he recognized it, he taught it and it is consistent with the writings of his disciples Peter, Paul, et. al.
As Jesus was known to say "because of the hardness of your heart" you cannot accept his teachings. Rejecting his teachings and commandments will result in eternal damnation. "Go directly to Hell, Do not Pass Go!, Do not collect $200."
We also see hints of Paul’s contact with Greek philosophy in some of his writings. For example, Paul, like the Platonists before him, wrote to the Romans that human reason is a way of coming into contact with the absolute Good, but of course he gave that ‘good’ the name of God:“For what can be known about God is perfectly plain to them, since God has made it plain to them. Ever since the creation of the world, the invisible existence of God and his everlasting power have been clearly seen by the mind's understanding of created things. And so these people have no excuse”(Rom 1:19-20). But Paul had also to temper the thought of the Platonists. They were too pessimistic about the body and the material world. He wrote to the Corinthians:“But if Christ is preached as raised from the dead, how can some among you say there is no resurrection of the dead?… What (the body) is sown is contemptible but what is raised is glorious; what is sown is weak, but what is raised is powerful”(1 Cor 15:12, 43). The Platonists were also too optimistic about self-knowledge. Paul wrote likewise to the Corinthians:“Any one of you who thinks he is wise by worldly standards must learn to be a fool in order to be really wise. For the wisdom of the world is folly to God”(1 Cor 3:18-19). Against Stoicism, Paul offered Christian insights into a personal God, into an eternal afterlife, and into an active love of others rather than passive self-interest. But like Stoicism, Paul also affirmed the mystery of Divine Providence and provided glimpses into the unity of the human race and of all of creation. In Corinthians, we see that he especially liked the Stoic concern for self-discipline in ethics:“Do you not realise that, though all the runners in the stadium take part in the race, only one of them gets the prize? Run like that -- to win. Every athlete concentrates completely on training, and this is to win a wreath that will wither, whereas ours will never wither”(1 Cor 9:24-25). In Thessalonica Paul found something to affirm the philosophy of the Epicureans, though, he had other purposes in mind:“… we do urge you, brothers, to go on making even greater progress and to make a point of living quietly, attending to your own business and earning your living, just as we told you to, so that you may earn the respect of outsiders and not be dependent on anyone”(1 Th 4:10-12). Still, Paul warned the Corinthians about Epicurean hedonism:“If the dead are not going to be raised, then Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we shall be dead. So do not let anyone lead you astray,'Bad company corrupts good ways”(1 Cor 15:33-34). Verse 33 of 1 Corinthian 15 may actually be a quotation from Menander.(3)

Sweetie, telling you and everyone else that you are fabricating quotes from a real Rabbi isn't lying about what said Rabbi said. That is what YOU are doing, I'm just here to remind you of that truth.

The ACTUAL AND ONLY SOURCE for your "quotes" from Rabbi Israel (not to be confused with Benjamin, Cleo or any other) Stein (retired) is "Joe De Caro", not Rabbi Israel (not to be confused with Benjamin, Cleo or any other) Stein (retired).

You are still free to prove me wrong in this statement, as you have been for weeks now. I tried to prove me wrong for you, even attempting to contact your alleged source myself. But I couldn't find and he didn't offer any evidence that I was wrong, just evidence that I was right. Unless you want to finally offer some evidence yourself that you haven't been nothing more than a pathological liar and pretending to use a real Rabbi to bolster your own arguments, that is pretty much the only conclusion left.

No, Ricky, I don't have to prove you wrong because Rabbi Stein was right about Gays like you who must project their aberant sexuality unto everyone, including long dead biblical persons who can't defend themselves from your sexual slanders.

So, in other words sweetie, you are conceding that I have been right all along in saying that all of your Rabbi "quotes" are nothing more than figments of your imagination. Jesus instructs you to go forth and sin no more at that point, but not you, you end by telling me that your Rabbi was right, even though you just admitted that you are unable to prove he actually said anything to be right about. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

You failed miserably in proving your Assumption and Assertion that the Apostle Paul plagerized anything. The whole assinine argument that Paul's writings regarding HOMOSEXUALITY are wrong or outside of the scripture understanding and teaching of Jesus.

Paul was a member of the Sanhedrian and well versed in all Hebrew laws and customs. Jesus did not mention the topic of HOMOSEXUALITy because it was so far outside the norm that it was pointless. Every Jew knew of the descruction of Sodom and Gomorrah for their sin of HOMOSEXUALITY that the did not need a lesson on this point or God's judgments concerning it.

Stocism was not even new among the Greeks as if you have ever read the writings of Solomon, you see this topic frequently.

HOMOSEXUALITY is a sin unto death. Period!

The entire post, above, is cut and pasted from the website www.chick.com
In fact, King James 1st was married and fathered three surviving children. However, his wife, Anne of Denmark, is known to have given birth to seven children, two stillbirths and at least three miscarriages, before she died. At least twelve pregnancies, in all.
Still, history shows that he enjoyed male companionship to the point that it is reasonable to conclude that the man was bi-sexual.
Doesn't really make much difference, does it?

You didn't read it all, you didn't read any of it or you would know better.

Perhaps since you are so enlightened you can tell me the ancient Hebrew word for homosexual?

BTW, every Jew knows the sin of Sodom is a lack of hospitality.

Saul was rejected by the early church in Jerusalem. He tells his little group that Peter is wrong. PETER! The man who first realized Jesus was the Messiah!

Peter, called rock by Jesus and Saul tells us that not only is HE WRONG, but the entire early church, the group that worked with, lived with, traveled with, ate with, prayed with, was taught by Jesus is wrong!

LOL!

Follow the Hellenist Saul, I'll stick with Jesus....

Phil,

I am still waiting for your answer to my post #123 in the "Judge makes order Permanent ..." thread.

You made the assertion and challenge. You need to answer.

As far as my bloated ramblings are concerned, TOPIX provides the space. You provide the comprehension - if you are able.

... that you still can't face the truth about yourself and your fellow GLBTs?

As Stein said, David was unabashedly heterosexual in his pursuit of Bathsheba; David was accused by the prophet Nathan of both murder and adultery, but never homosexuality.

The Bible paints saints warts and all, so why would it hide a homosexual relationship between David and Jonathan?

Then again, for some, why is every relationship between two men or two women always sexual?

We're still waiting for your answer, Ricky.
