The herod referred to in the slaughter of the innocents is clearly herod the great, who died 4 years before your jesus was supposedly born. His son wasn't involved with the jesus story, only john the baptist's.

YOU asked for proof, I provided it.

Apparantly you cant refute it, so you're trying to deflect as usual.

You're a failure at that too.

Thought you didn't believe scripture so how can you say she proved what you don't believe or did you suddenly become a believer of Jewish scripture. Talk about silly.
AGAIN, you cam't provide ANYTHING. You asked for proof, and you got it.

Now refute it if you can.

Another Gosnell patient, Davida Johnson, noted in an Associated Press article that she intended to go to Planned Parenthood for an abortion procedure, but was scared away by anti-abortion protesters picketing outside the clinic. An acquaintance suggested she go to Gosnell, where protesters (ironically) were not an issue.
Evidence suggests that a number of factors influenced a woman's decision to seek care at Gosnell's clinic: Medicaid's refusal to provide insurance coverage for most abortions; the scarcity of abortion providers in Pennsylvania (and across the nation); the fear of violence perpetrated by protestors at clinics, and the right-wing culture that has so stigmatized abortion that many think it is still illegal 40 years after Roe v. Wade.
There shouldn't have been a Gosnell's "clinic" to go to.

He will rule at a time when the Jewish people will observe G-d's commandments - "My servant David shall be king over them; and they shall all have one shepherd. They shall follow My ordinances and be careful to observe My statutes." (Ezekiel 37:24)
The Torah is the Jewish guide to life, and its commandments are the ones referred to here. Do all Jews observe all the commandments? Christianity, in fact, often discourages observance of the commandments in Torah, in complete opposition to this prophecy.
All of these criteria are best stated in the book of Ezekiel Chapter 37 verses 24-28:
And David my servant shall be king over them; and they shall all have one shepherd. they shall also follow My judgments and observe My statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given to Yaakov my servant, in which your fathers have dwelt and they shall dwell there, they and their children, and their children's children forever; and my servant David shall be their prince forever. Moreover, I will make a covenant of peace with them, it shall be an everlasting covenant with them, which I will give them; and I will multiply them and I will set my sanctuary in the midst of them forevermore.
I was just discussing this book and it was foretelling the creation of The Temple ("In will set my sanctuary in the midst of them forevermore.) Ezekiel was a descendant of a prophet. Prophets were considerred blasphemers who took on the role given to priests in the absence of a Temple.
But notice that David, the supposed ancestor of Jesus, is referred to as a servant as will his progeny.("and my servant David shall be their prince forevermore"). Jesus would not have been God's son.
And the priests, whom Jesus opposed, were those decreed by God to head th Temple. That position was given to Aaron of the trbe of Levi.

Why do you keep avoiding refuting the scriptural evidence? After all, YOU asked for proof, and you were given it.

Back up your claim Inkstain. After all, its easter right? You SHOULD be able to, easily.

We're waiting.....

Yes I am, but records show that pilate was nowhere near where jesus was supposed to be for their meeting. That trial didn't happen, and thus the meeting with herod didn't happen either. History is against you...not to mention that jesus wasn't charged with crimes in galilee and thus herod would have no jurisdiction anyway.

You don't believe anything written about Christ so what is the point? If we were to have a discussion on the suject, you would have to accept that we are talking about a real person and you don't. End of subject. You said He didn't exist so let's agree, He didn't exist. Now will anyone ever fit your criteria?

The POINT is your question regarding what disproves him as messiah. I've provided that, and used scripture to do it.

The key is seeing if you can refure it.

ROFLMAO Uh no Inkstain. To have a DICUSSION on this, it simply takes two people willing to be honest and truthful in their convictions and their commentary.

I have been.

You - as usual, make shit up as you go along to aviod having to prove YOUR claims. I've proven mine scripturally, you apparently are too stupid and ignorant of your own faith to back up you OWN claims.
You said He didn't exist so let's agree, He didn't exist.
Hey, if you want to disavow your version of g-d so easily, that's on you.
Now will anyone ever fit your criteria?
Its not MY criteria as you know dear, but SCRIPTURAL criteria.

And yes, we believe that someday, G-d WILL send a Messiah. But he hasn't yet.

You know Inkstain, in this one post, you've managed to TRULY show what a complete fool you really are.

Theologians that dont agree on scripture have been DISCUSSING scripture for thousands of years. Religious debate is CERTAINLY possible between people of different faiths.

Strikes me that you're just afraid to have anything resembling discussion on faith with people that know more than you do about it, NOT ONLY because you dont have the conviction of your faith, you dont have the knowledge of it either.

He spoke also this parable to certain people who were convinced of their own righteousness, and who despised all others. "Two men went up into the temple to pray; one was a Pharisee, and the other was a tax collector. The Pharisee stood and prayed to himself like this:'God, I thank you, that I am not like the rest of men, extortioners, unrighteous, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week. I give tithes of all that I get.' But the tax collector, standing far away, wouldn't even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying,'God, be merciful to me, a sinner!' I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted."
Luke 18:9-14, World English Bible
Also Luke 12: 8-9 might apply
"And I say to you anyone who acknowledges me before men, him will the Son of man acknowledge before the angels of God. But whoever disowns me before men, will be disowned before the angels of God"
"He spoke also this parable to certain people who were convinced of their own righteousness..."

I'm often amazed at the ignorance I encounter on here.

My grandson was born at 20 weeks. He was still born but I guarantee you that he was every bit a human being.
His name was Julian. Maybe if your held a child like that in your arms, you wouldn't be so hardassed.
Foo said:
No, it really wasn't a "human being". It was a dead fetus that you named in memory of the human being he MIGHT have become. You aren't holding a 20 week fetus 'in your arms' either, its 6 inches long.
This is harsh, but factual. Maybe if you were more realistic, you wouldn't be such a dumbass.
"This was the conversation that caused me to call her a cockroach."

Caused you? So you didn't choose on your own to do the very thing you're complaining she did? Interesting the way your mind works.

Thank you, Ayaka. All evidence points to these unintended consequences becoming the "norm" when abortion is treated as criminal. All anyone has to do is watch what happens in the South American countries where induced abortion's been recently criminalized to see increase in mortality of pregnant women.

But some here think criminalizing it is the answer because if/when women have "illegal" abortions, she can blame no-one but herself for dying.
