Jesus first repeated what he said, then summarized: "‘I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.’ The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying,‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’" (John 6:51–52).
His listeners were stupefied because now they understood Jesus literally—and correctly. He again repeated his words, but with even greater emphasis, and introduced the statement about drinking his blood: "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you; he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him" (John 6:53–56).
Thanks for making my point.

I don't worship cannibals, and don't intend to be one.
Even symbolically.

You can keep your ravenous bloodthirsty god, with my blessings dear.

True. The contention was that he is only a myth. Most experts say he was a real person.
I imagine that he was a real person that inspired mythical legends surrounding his life. He could also actually be a composite of of more than one person, too, which may be the basis for the Trinity belief. If he did in fact exist, then he made enough of an impression on the times that he became a known historical figure.

This is an excellent point. Nobody seems willing to say that we simply don't know and have no way to get all the facts.

<quoted text> 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.
I don't think the point is to degrade wives/mothers/homemakers, but to simply point out that we can do anything we want with our lives and are not just relegated to those roles.

The flip side is people who say ignorant things like how we belong in the kitchen or we should be home taking care of kids. We're people, just like men, and are not just put on this Earth to be breeding stock and glorified maids. I'm NOT saying that is what wives and mothers are, but that is not our sole purpose. Those aren't what we "should" be doing but like anything else is a choice.

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.
This is the thing a lot of you don't get...I, and others, are not diminishing your beliefs but are reacting to the Christian contention that you have the truth or know for a fact that an unseen God exists. Believe what you want, but that doesn't mean the bible can't be discussed, debated or dissected.

If you are uncomfortable with people bringing up discrepancies and contradictions in the bible then maybe it's because you know the bible is in fact quite inconsistent and you simply don't wish to acknowledge that to yourself.

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.
To me Jesus was probably a very charismatic and assertive person who made an impression on a great many people. I think he was probably a pacifist with an idealized vision of how civilized people should interact in a world where we have our humanity in common. Sort of a "we're all in this together so we should all just get along" philosophy. However, if Jesus was walking around telling folks he was the Son of God or the King of Kings then he may have been a touch delusional, too.

See,it's clueless posts like these from your side that prove to me how deceptive the pro-abortion movement really is. Thank you!
Lol, yes, because education is sin, in your ridiculous little mind. I'm sorry that you can't send yourself back to the dark-ages, oh pompous one. You would fit right in.

Okay,so you DON'T have a problem with pro-abortion organizations soliciting money for their cause. It's only pamplets that show a human life with a caption that we are not "just" cells,that irks you and leads you to come onto topix to show your true colors.

Interesting.

Since when is abortion "education" btw? Education that belongs in childrens Halloween bags nevertheless.

Well,you are very much incorrect when you thought that this..so called.."point" was not intended to degrade wives/mothers/homemakers. Ocean clearly called it enslavement and Leonie also put down being a wife and a mother,referring to it as being a slave. I've had many conversations with Ocean about this.

Are you afraid to admit that we *don't* belong in a kitchen? Is being in the kitchen an insult? Not to me it isn't. We all have to eat. Cooking is a necessity and a passion to some. Even an art. Chefs cook for a living,which serves people.

We have children but somehow think that we *shouldn't* be the ones raising them? Is being home with our children an insult? Is it enslavement? are some ABOVE the task?

We call chefs and childcare owners/workers "educated professional" but cooking and taking care of our families with the "mother" title is the bottom of the barrel,slave masters job. LOL WOW!

Question: WHY isn't or shouldn't it be our "SOLE PURPOSE IN LIFE" as how you stated it in such a derogatory fashion?

I don't recall referring to paul as an atheist.
Since he wasn't.
What he was, was very very religious, and thought he was doing the work of God.
Those men who flew the planes into the buildings, on 911 were very very religious as well, thinking they were doing the work of God.
When paul met God on that road, and yeilded to Him, then he went from being a very religious "Godless " man, to a Godly man, that had very little tolerance for religion.
I don't think that Paul was part of a Godly religion to begin with. He joined forces with some who where not "of God",therefore,displaying unGodly behavior. Was his belonging to this group intentionally meant to be anti-God/Christ? Who knows. Only God know,I suppose.

"BY THE FRUITS YOU WILL KNOW THEM"

When Paul had his conversion,he indeed followed him religiously(he became a Christian. He then belonged to Christs church here on earth. What he became intolerant about was unGodly religions where they didn't obey the teachings of God/Christ...hence,his making of so many enemies,..as well as followers :)

Even to those who didn't follow him,it still was recorded that he healed the sick,raised the dead,performed many miracles. He SURE did make an impression :)

You now gladly acknowledge that you DON'T KNOW how the universe began yet the sum of your existence on this forum has been to degrade, humiliate, dismiss and reject with extreme prejudice, the notion by those who also acknowledge that they don't know for sure and can offer now concrete proof, but whose faith and belief tells them that the universe is the result of intelligent design and that intelligent design was initiated by a Christian deity.
We now know that you know not of what you speak.

If you admit you do not know how the universe began then it is self evident that you cannot be certain how it did NOT begin.

You may now cease and desist with your uninformed attacks on those you now acknowledge, may in fact be right.

How did you manage to twist my post into some freaky mess to suit your bitchy sensibilities, crazy lady? Unicef doesn't try to propagandize girls to have or to not have abortions, doesn't show graphics to kids that parents obviously find inappropriate for their children. Your wonderful anti-choice champion here did. Even Ink said she's sick for doing so. Get yourself together, snippy. I clearly wrote that I feel it is inappropriate for either side to propagandize this way... either side, I wrote, hello! When Christian ministries, with their chikdren at their sides, asks for alms at my door, which they do, often (I live in fundie country, baby) I have no problem. However, they aren't passing out inapropriate graphics to children. Get it? If you don't understand the difference, that's your problem. Enough, now. The subject has been gone over and over, ad nauseum. You don't get to reinvent my post for your stupid argument. Move along, you nut.

Right, so, because someone wrote it, it must be true. Please. Christians rely on faith, not facts, to shore up their beliefs. To expect people to take the Bible as factual evidence of Jesus Christ's status as the son of a god, as a miracle worker, as a savior of mankind, shows you a fool. Without blind faith, religion cannot live. And I mean any religion, before you try to twist my words.
