I don't know what Jesus will say to me, I'm not such a pompous azz enough to even assume I would be worthy to make such assumptions.
I am sure Jesus would expect me on a PERSONAL level to follow his teachings, not broadcast or make boasts or judgments who is and who is not a follower of him.
I would expect Jesus to say, it is your personal duty to care for the sick, the poor, the infirm, and the children. I am also sure Jesus would say be satisfied with what you have and not be envious of what other people have, do your duty and let others do theirs.
I see and understand only one thing Jesus requires of us and that is "do you believe Jesus is the son of God? that he was crucified and died on the cross? and that he arose from the dead? and now lives?" These questions are the basis of the new testament, if you cant or wont believe them, the rest of the gospels are hogwash, and each person comes to that decision, Informed Opinion's personal opinion notwithstanding.
If the answers are yes, then caring for those in need no longer is a duty but now becomes a joy and way of life.
I dont expect you or anyone else to do "charity work", and for sure I dont care to have it forced on me by Gubment while Gubment plays God and says who pays how much and when, nor do I care to have it forced on me by libtards who always talk and strut before the world how wonderful they are and how much they help everyone while at the same time making more and more of the people dependent on Gubment where Gubment becomes their God.

Your explanation is extremely over simplified. The atmosphere of the earth is huge and does cleanse itself. Scientist have just proved that co2 gases are not a cause of global warming. Ponder this one. Just how much pollution does one volcano put out in one day? They put out gases from sulfuric acid and many other highly toxic gases. It has been said that just one volcano puts out as much pollution in one day, as every car, airplane, and factory on earth does in a year. You must have seen videos of the huge billows of thick black smoke with ash falling covering thousands of miles. Is that not taken into account? How could anything that man does even create even a noticeable amount of pollution that all these volcanos do? Sure man can pollute the air as one can see the results in China but is that pollution actually warming the earth? If it is, than why is the earth actually getting cooler? Oh yeah, that's right it is global cooling {climate change),being caused by man. I think you are not old enough to remember that the big scare in the 1970"s was global cooling. It was headlines on all the newspapers and magazines for years of how the world was going into an ice age. Well it didn't and then in the 1990's, we are all going to die as the planet heats up, blah, blah, blah. Now it is climate change. This fictitious fear mongering science just goes on and on. It is a money maker and gives the EPA great power to control this country. All I am asking for you do do is just give this some logical thought.
The noble strategies concocted to ward off global warming are merely massive wealth transfers cloaked in green. The social justice crowd should be outraged and hopefully will be when they figure out thatthe progressives that they follow are playing them.

46 Senators Willing To Subjugate 2nd Amendment To U.N. Doctrine.

On April 2, the U.N. passed the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) by a 153-4 vote, with the U.S. voting in favor. President Obama is expected to sign the ATT on June 3, but it will not be binding on Americans because the Senate, which must approve the ratification of the treaty, rejected it by a vote of 53 to 46. Every vote in favor of the treaty in the Senate came from a Democrat or an independent. A few Democrats voted with Republicans.

The Senate did this at 3 a.m. on March 23, after Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) introduced an amendment to the budget to keep the U.S from entering the ATT.

As Breitbart News has reported, the ATT is a clear threat to gun markets and the 2nd Amendment.

Here are the 46 Senator who voted opposed the effort to keep the U.S. out of the ATT, thereby subjugating the 2nd Amendment to U.N. Doctrine: Baldwin (D-WI), Baucus (D-MT), Bennet (D-CO), Blumenthal (D-CT), Boxer (D-CA), Brown (D-OH), Cantwell (D-WA), Cardin (D-MD), Carper (D-DE), Casey (D-PA), Coons (D-DE), Cowan (D-MA), Durbin (D-IL), Feinstein (D-CA), Franken (D-MN), Gillibrand (D-NY), Harkin (D-IA), Hirono (D-HI), Johnson (D-SD), Kaine (D-VA), King (I-ME), Klobuchar (D-MN), Landrieu (D-LA), Leahy (D-VT), Levin (D-MI), McKaskill (D-MO), Menendez (D-NJ), Merkley (D-OR), Mikulski (D-MD), Murphy (D-CT), Murray (D-WA), Nelson (D-FL), Reed (D-RI), Reid (D-NV), Rockefeller (D-WV), Sanders (I-VT), Schatz (D-HI), Schumer (D-NY), Shaheen (D-NH), Stabenow (D-MI), Udall (D-CO), Warner (D-VA), Warren (D-MA), Whitehouse (D-RI), Wyden (D-OR).

Once Obama signs the treaty, it can be called up for future Senate votes to accept or reject a resolution of ratification. It will require two-thirds of Senate votes to succeed in ratification.

And that's just 3.6% of his total work time. This shows Obama has no interest in the economy.

What gives with the news medias non-stop coverage of the Boston bombing. Do you think that they do not want to talk about the economy, immigration, or gun control?
I am guessing that they don't want to talk about the sellout immigration bill that is going to legitimize about 35 million illegal aliens. Just how will ObamaCare handle another 33 million people on top of the 40 plus million people that they are going to insure? I know the Dems. say that isn't going to happen but we all know that is just another Dem. lie. They must include all these people into the healthcare plan if they want to keep their votes. Most of these people will vote democratic anyway so it is setting up another huge voting block for the Socialist Democratic Party. If all this happens there will be no more Republican Party or Republican candidates. You will have only the Socialist Party running everything in the country.
Republicans know this, and that is why they are moving so far left. It won't matter as as hard as they try to be democrats in republican clothing they will not get the votes. Neither the conservatives or the socialist will vote for them.

<quoted text>My take on Campbell's work is not so much that we feel the need to invent God, but that we are constantly struggling to find a set of meaningful symbols with which to converse on that which transcends all symbols. These symbols change thru history but the topic of discussion has always remained the same, because we face the same life-cycle today, that man has always faced.

A couple of interesting points from the Middle East,

Herding cultures come in from the northern steppes and from the deserts to replace planting cultures, here is where the Male-centered god replaces the earth-mother goddess (a different emphasis and culture).

The Hebrews were late on the scene, they adopt and modify the stories that already exist in the areas they move into. A common motif is that of the younger brother who is favored over the older. It can be seen in the tale of Cain and Abel, where Abel is the younger brother, a herder, and whose offering is pleasing to God (this tale also justifies any strife towards the old planting religions).
Good points.

I believe the Old Testament and the "Epics" are almost impossible to decipher with any legitimacy.

Many seem to be more directly "How To" stories that relayed useful information for the times in a religious context that gave them an importance they might not otherwise have had.

It seems lots of the "abominations" related to food were, in reality, intended to minimize food related illnesses.

On a theological level, I've never been able to reconcile the inherent unfairness of the parables of the Prodigal Son and Job, especially as so many suffered so much to teach the protagonists.

You'd think God wouldn't slap Bob to teach Fred not to screw up.

Yes, the Creation and Flood stories came from earlier Sumerian mythology.
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows...
In the earliest Christian movement, there were actually many different writings circulated, and many traditions about the sayings of Jesus. Some of the leaders were concerned to say, "Well, which of these writings can be read in church? Which are the right ones? Which are the best ones?" And Irenaeus, the leader of a church in France in about the year 170, declared that "The heretics boast that they have many more gospels than there really are. But really they don't have any gospels that aren't full of blasphemy. There actually are only four authentic gospels. And this is obviously true because there are four corners of the universe and there are four principal winds, and therefore there can be only four gospels that are authentic. These, besides, are written by Jesus' true followers."
...In the second and third century, we know that there were many other gospels that were developed. We have a charming array of popular kinds of stories of the life of Jesus.
...Irenaeus was a Bishop of Lyon...[He] was particularly noted for his writings in which he tried to combat various kinds of so-called heretics of the second century. Most of these were people who would consider themselves Christians.
...It may surprise people to know that it's really not until the year 367 that we have a list of New Testament books that conforms exactly to the list of the twenty-seven books we would call the New Testament today. So throughout the second and third centuries there was quite a lot of fighting about which ones are in and which ones not.
...The diversity of Christianity is certainly closely related to the proliferation of gospels. Even the gospels which we have in the canon of the New Testament are not of one mind, but really represent very different religious positions and very different images of Jesus.
...I think the composition of a four-fold gospel canon reflects complicated developments during the course of the second century. One of the factors that played a role here certainly was the fact that certain gospels were revered in certain ecclesiastical centers, so it may be that Antioch had a special affection for the Gospel of Luke. We don't know that for a fact, but this is certainly an element in the development of the gospel canon.
...If we return to Irenaeus' argument for the canon, I think precisely the contrary is closer to a more responsible historical reconstruction, and that is that there's some kind of consensus among people in the Jesus movement as to what constitutes reliable tradition, reliable literature - literature that they want to read or they want to hear over and over again, and other kinds of literature that they don't want to hear. And, of course, there are groups that have differences of opinion about this.
If you are going to quote sources, you should use more credible ones without an agenda. The very title "From Jesus to Christ" implies the notion held by liberal scholars that Jesus was a man, never claimed to be otherwise and that after his death some of his followers decided for some unknown reason to claim he was divine. Dominic Crossan was the usual spokesman that would be trotted out to speak for the Jesus Seminar - a group of liberals - most of whom were not even scholars- who for the most part held that same view.
The quote from Irenaeus is deliberately misquoted to make his points about the Gospels look ridiculous. The actual quote is that "The Gospel ....fittingly has four corners..." not "it is obviously true because of the winds, etc.". There is a huge difference. The twisting of the quotation is to serve the argument that Irenaeus is arguing for a new concept and had a weak arguments. Rather he appeals to the symbolism of the four winds, etc BECAUSE he has four gospels, not the other way around.

Irenaeus (cont)

Interestingly, the very sources you cited actually argue against themselves. L Michael Smith cites the Diatessaron (meaning "through the four") which was written somewhere between 160-175 and was basically a condensing together of the four gospel of Matthew, Mark Luke and John. However, Irenaeous did not write his letter containing the "four winds etc" until approx 180. The authority of the four gospels was already standard belief among the early church.
Elaine Pagels and Elizabeth Clark both have their feminist agenda that they promote and Pagels is a devotee of the so-called Gnostic gospels that are known to have been written at minimum 100 years after the four gospels in the canon that were written anywhere from 20-50 years after Jesus death and resurrection (in the case of Luke, Mark and Matthew) and within 60 years in the case of John.
