I'm sorry, I didn't mean to be confusing to you.
What specifically are you asking?

Im not asking anything. Im simply answering the question that was posted. When I was reading your reply to the question, it never seem to answer the question about Jesus being a carpenter and I was scratching my head trying to see if I missed something, I was trying to figure out your reasoning....but the more I tried the more I became confused, so I just stopped reading your answer. :)

Talking of carpenters. An old man knocks on the pearly gates of heaven. St Peter comes to the gate and asks him who he is and what he wants.
Old man: I am just a simple man who works with wood, and I have come to try and find my son who was taken away from me. He was a very special son, taken from me in tragic circumstances, the most amazing son the world has ever known, there has never been a son like him.
St Peter went inside and met Jesus.
St Peter: There's an old guy outside who says he's a woodworker who is looking for a very special son taken from him in tragic circumstances, shall I tell him to clear off?
Jesus: A worker of wood looking for his very special son you say, I'll deal with this.
Jesus goes to the gate to see the old man.
Jesus: Are you the wood worker who is looking for his very special lost son taken from him in tragic circumstances?
The old man nodded.
Jesus looked hard at the old man and in a faltering voice said, "Father?"
The old man stared back at Jesus, and with a quizzical look and an equally faltering voice replied, "Pinocchio???"

Most people are good at many things and Jesus Christ was primarily God The Son come to redeem mankind.
That he was probably taught to work with wood and metal by his stepfather is secondary.
Jesus also made wine, bread, caught fish and healed the sick.

Did you know that Joseph was more than just a carpenter?

The proper Greek word used to describe Joseph's trade was "Tekton".(tevktwn)
A man who is a tekton is defined as "a worker in wood, a carpenter, joiner, builder
a ship's carpenter or builder
any craftsman, or workman
the art of poetry, maker of songs
a planner, contriver, plotter or an author."

MAN!
If telling that story didn't make your nose grow three inches, you have no conscience.

No, I still have the same cute nose(so says my wife) and my conscience is untroubled. What is your problem?

Don't get confused.
YOU are the one with the problem, not me.

Keep things in perspective, despite your debility.

Oh I'm far from confused. It's you who is getting all uppity so it would appear that you do have a problem. No sense of humour perhaps? Of course you are a fundie which would explain a lot!

Why hasn't your god defeated your satan in the past?

If your god is timebound, it can not be all powerful.

Mary mother of god squatted on his wooden face and said, "Lie you bastard."
