True. The contention was that he is only a myth. Most experts say he was a real person.

Is that the one thing in the bible that you believe? Paul, famously had women preachers speak about Christ with him. They traveled with him and taught with him. Thecla is one who comes to mind but there were many.

Still, millions of people believe in God and the bible just as much as you do and you all have different interpretations of what the bible means and what they think of God.
They do and it is the source of discussion all the time even among scholars. The thing is they all believe in God and the Christians all believe in Christ as his messenger. It doesn't matter how they get there. What happens on this thread is a discussion between believers and non believers with non believers using the small differences of believers as a reason to throw away the word of God.

DOn't believe that is your choice but don't diminish our beliefs because of small differences.

It's always what you think, what you believe, how you interpret Jesus'/God's intent...
Of course there are many personal and subjective interpretations of the bible messages, just as there are many different versions of Christianity.
I'm sure you know that Christianity doesn't just come down to what Ink thinks about it all.
I would be more than happy for you to tell me how the words of Christ affect you in your life and what messages you are inspired by. Basically your understanding of what he was trying to tell us.
I'm sure you have heard enough of me.

Not a chance. Whether the master is kind or not, a slave is still a slave. A true marriage is based on partnership, mutual consent and mutual compromise, not submission. You Christians have a terrible, terrible notion of how marriage is supposed to work, and I see it time and time again in Christian households.
It's not a partnership when both parties work full time but only the woman does any of the housework, thereby coming home to more, constant work while her lazy husband and kids sit on their asses and do nothing to help. It's not a partnership when the woman of the house is treated worse than the family dog and can't sit down for five minutes to herself without her selfish husband and kids demanding her attention. It's not a partnership when the woman is trying to do something for herself like EAT and one of the kids needs something, but the man just sits there watching football, fully expecting her to take care of it because he's the man and she's the woman. This type of typical Christian mistreatment of wives and mothers is based on some outdated notion that it's "women's work" to do laundry, wash dishes and take care of the kids. These are the "Kodak moment" fathers that may as well just be sperm donors, for all the effort they put into raising their own kids. Aside from throwing their weight around to boss the kids and wife into submission every night, they contribute nothing to the upbringing.
Head of the household? No. Bully of the household, yes. And these women put up with this servitude, this belittling mistreatment, because of one line in that filthy bible you people feel the need to drag into every conversation or argument you have. These women are not happy; they are miserable...but they're too scared to get out of their situation because they have their religion telling them it's their duty.
Keep your chains far, far away from me. You can have them all. I will have a partner that treats me as an equal and an ally in all things, not one that thinks I should "submit" to him. I'm a person, not a piece of property, and only a fiend would attempt to convince anyone they're better off in servitude and would really like it with the right guy. People into BDSM use safe words and keep their roleplaying separate from their public lives; Christians do not.
"Come, be a slave...you'll love it!"
No. Your sales pitch stinks.
So very true, and you're so right, the Christian sales pitch stinks. Although I will say one thing; which is, the attitude that housework and child care are "women's work" isn't limited to JUST Christian guys. There are guys from other religions and even NO religion who believe that nonsense.

For me, ANY guy who seriously believes housework and child care is strictly "women's work" is a guy women need to run AWAY from.

Would you be happy if the Bible declared the women as the head?
You see, there must be some kinda order, within a world of so much disorder.
Women can do as they please, but if they wish to be married to a man and have any hope of that working out,and being a very good marriage, they can't be the head.
Why you feel, that since God put man over woman, that it makes the woman garbage, is beyond me.
By the way who sinned first adam or eve?
When did Sin enter the world?
God holds the man accountable, since with headship, there is responsibility.
Not sure why these verses concern you so much anyway, since we now live in a time, where no one knows their place in the family unit.
We're still left, with either all was created, or it just happened.
If you choose we were created, then perhaps you should want to see what the Creator wants.
Whether you like or agree, with how that Creator chooses to do things.
Are you suggesting that the bible can be reinterpreted to produce such an outcome? That would be a difficult task since the bible was written by men as the foundation of male hierarchy and maltreatment of women as his pet/slave/whore.

I have witnessed and read enough history to understand the so called "order" proposed by the bible.

Yes, thankfully women CAN do as they please within or without marriage as she is an individual and not a pet/slave/whore thanks to women stepping up and taken their rightful place as the producers of the human race.

I am married and have been for over 30 years. We have a partnership and we are both the heads of the house. One does not rule over the other.

I never said women were garbage, I was referring to the bible as being such.

Who sinned first in mythical story? The ridiculous HE-MAN Childish male god who decided to play a game with a tree and an apple.

Why the verses concern me so much? Think about it genius, they have been the force behind the maltreatment of women for ages. I would have thought you could have figured that out. Obviously you are a man and this doesn't concern you.

First of all, that was back in the 70`s, when the church still knew its place. Secondly, I didn't pay a dime; I had a full-ride scholarship. Lastly, the college wasn`t political and said nothing about what its students should do about their pregnancy.
<quoted text>
What.....it wasn't the same institution back in the 70's ? It had a different position on abortion and women's reproductive rights ?
There were no instances of priest abuse and church cover-up ?
The fact is there were most likely many more cases than there are today.
And even if I believed your lie about the scholarship, which I don't for a second, scholarships still represent real money. Money was paid to that institution in your name. And the fact the college said nothing about a woman's pregnancy doesn't change the fact that the money still went to the Catholic Church.

Spin it any way you like. It still spells hypocritical phony.

NOW you expect us to buy into the fact that your heart bleeds for a physician who is faced with the "gut wrenching" decision of whether or not to perform a procedure whose risks may be approaching that of typical childbirth ?!? You would remove a woman's right to paersonal risk assessment and force her to gestate on THAT basis ???
You facked up here chief. And as I suspected, your arrogance will not allow you to admit it.

UNICEF collects money for their pro-death organization on Halloween. In fact,UNICEF boxes are distributed to young children in schools to do the work for them. Abortion is taught as an option to an unwanted pregnancy during sex education. Are you really this ignorant or are you pulling my chain?

See,it's clueless posts like these from your side that prove to me how deceptive the pro-abortion movement really is. Thank you!

What "conspiracy theory" are you referring to? YOU came on here and posted what you did,for a reason. Yet,UNICEF collects money,especially on Halloween,from children,and yet,your side has not "blogged" a damn thing about it.

Pretty big and beautiful "ant farm",wouldn't ya say? God intended us to be happy. Man,"shook the glass" deliberately through his(our)sinful nature. Free choice/will is a WONDERFUL gift. UGLY when abused. The innocent suffer because of it as well as those who are doing the abusing of it. Let's put the blame where it belongs. Jesus died for our sins to free us from the bonds of sin. THAT'S a loving God.

Why is it "great" that he saw abortion in a totally different light that lead to his change? It was not based on "lack of inspections",AyakaNeo and you know it. The truth about what the abortion industry is about(what it does to an innocent baby,his/her mother)is where the truth shone. Not on a his dirty,unsterile office where women where left to die.

Abortion kills a baby.

Abortion kills the soul of a woman,emotionally and mentally,as well as physically. WHO on your side cares about either? ZERO,that's who. In fact,your abortion fight is all about a ME ME ME mentality minus the consequences or lifetime effects ON that woman or the generations to follow from the deliberate death of her child.

If only you could be a fly on the wall of your local CPC,Project Rachel,or Dr's/shrinks office to hear the truth about how women truly suffer from abortion.

I think we all understand this "love for men story" as written directly from the imaginations of men.
Genesis 3:16
Unto the woman He said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
1 Corinthians 11:3
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
1 Corinthians 11:5-15
New International Version (NIV)
5 But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is the same as having her head shaved. 6 For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head.
7 A man ought not to cover his head,[a] since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. 8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; 9 neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. 10 It is for this reason that a woman ought to have authority over her own[b] head, because of the angels. 11 Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12 For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.
13 Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, 15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.
Ephesians 5:22-24
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the Saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
You sound like a woman scorned. The consensus of pro-abortion women is that marriage and motherhood is a prison sentence where within the woman is victimized. I don't view marriage or motherhood like that. God intended man to leave his mother and father and clings to his wife. THEY become ONE. With that said,we are one body. Your negative experiences has tanished such a beautiful union. Motherhood is the extension of that beautiful,loving bond.

I certainly do, all too well; it's why I kicked the toxic baggage of gods, religions, and churches to the curb over 25 years ago. This kind of "love for men" translated into hatred for women, which militant religionists like sASSy routinely deny.
These days, I have seven good reasons to love being what I call Catholicism-Free (CF for short):
1. No constant and tedious preaching about "sin"
2. No long and boring church services and sermons to ruin my Sundays
3. No hassles about the weekly drag known as "confession."
4. Not having to pop out more kids than I wanted because of Catholicism's anti-contraception doctrines
5. Not having to give any of my money to the church's blood-sucking hierarchy by the church-based extortion practice known as "tithing."
6. No worries about my child being a victim of one of the Catholic Church's vile pedophile priests
7. Freedom to decide for MYSELF on all important personal matters like sex, marriage, and reproduction
Personally, I find it a gross obscenity that a group of male clerics in dresses has the arrogance to believe it has the "right" to rule over millions of women's lives. Luckily for me, I can -- and DID -- get rid of this toxic church's baggage so it wouldn't ruin the quality of MY life. I celebrate that decision every day.
For me, being Catholicism-Free (CF) ROCKS. It's wonderful how much freedom a woman has when she ISN'T mentally chained to a regressive and oppressive religious institution.
Again,women are not victims because you were made to feel inferior or unworthy in your life. Enjoy what you relate "CATHOLIC-FREE" or CF to being. ROCK on babe!

I find it ironic that you live a total contradiction. You discriminate against females in the woman. They are VICIMIZED by your group of anti-lifers to death.

Enjoy YOUR freedom. To hell with everybody else and their rights.

No. Your sales pitch stinks. Now stop trying to use your bible to tell us what to do with our bodies. Believe it or not, the world doesn't revolve around Christian dogma.
Oh boy!

Listen,I am truly sorry that many women feel used and abused like you describe. But,I gotta say,today,women ADD to this. Let me explain. I hear women(you and some others on here..cough..cough...OCEAN56.. .)degrade the role of homemaker and motherhood as "if" it is a pathetic and unworthy position in life. If we care for others on the outside(jobs where we attend to,care for,nurse,service,etc..)then we are considered "employeed with honor". If we take on the job at our own home,with our own children and families,we are prisoners some how.

Wake up lady. Charity begins at home. Stand proud. Hold you head high. Understand the true value and honor that it is to be a mother and caretaker of our homes and you will THEN lead the mislead pack to a very serene,honorable place.

No job is stress free or without it's tiring moments. Get a grip on reality. Don't take your insecurities out on motherhood/being a wife.

You wanna leave it all behind in such of a "worthy" lot in life(work outside the home),then be prepared to do doubletime work. If you have kids,THEY come first. You want to put them last,then you will have no joy in your life and your priorities will distort who YOU really are and what YOUR place in life is really about. Sorry to be so harsh.
