For many, the regrets to do not come in life. They come at death when one enters the presence of the Lord.

from Religion News Service:

"Spong doesn’t think any of the Gospels are literal retellings of the life of Christ.'All of them were written 40 to 70 years after the Crucifixion, in a language that Jesus did not speak, and not by eyewitnesses,' he said."

Spong doesn’t think the Apostles John and Matthew were eyewitnesses to the Gospel?

Spong doesn’t think, period.

Well, Bill Maher seems to have Spong's number.

Spong:“He’s violently anti-religious in his pronouncements and yet he introduced me once as his favorite theologian in America,” Spong said.

Maher knows the deal with Spong. He uses Spong to buttress his anti-religion viewpoints on his show, and Spong is apparently more than happy to be Maher's useful idiot.

Sez Spong, fatty, and if you also don't think Matthew and John were eyewitnesses to Christ's ministry, then you don't think either.

Period.

You lost your grip on reality and the Gospel long ago and you prove it every time you post here.

FEASTING isn't the same as digesting.
