Happy New Year, Alex<quoted text>
Dear brother Happy New Year and a Happy New year to fellow humans, braindead and brainAlive!
Some great points....
About BJ being naked....hmmm...it is very easy for them to get naked those days...simon peter the naked fisherman, the much loved, breast pressing, naked disciple who fled...and the naked "risen" BJ the gardener who was chasing seven demons off magda to the shouts of "oh my god..oh my god"....!
Here's another thought....
They keep bragging about sinless BJ the sacrifical lamb (who got up and ran off!!)....!
Why was BJ hiding from his potential "killers"?
The longer he lived on planet earth the more sins he was able to commit including his famous "living tadpole water proposal" to a helpless woman when her husband was away and also rebuking many peasants while cursiong helpless fig trees and calling poor helpless women "dogs"...
At worst he should have walked straight out of river jordan, post batism to put his head on a chopping board for a Jewish priest to do the business!
What does he do, instead? Confuse clueless Satan who did not even realise BJ was "god"!!! lol....
The problem is that the Church fathers impressed the fools and the ignorants, who had no access to any books and were neither well-read nor knew the metaphors and figurative language of the Jews.
Those, who knew Hebrew, understood well what the language meant. And here, we have the Church, the evangelists, the pastors and the masses, who foolishly take dividing clothes and garments to mean as if a person's clothes were really taken and shared using a lottery.
In Arabic, there is this saying "Do not eat or devour the property of orphans and the weak", and if Jesus had said that, the Christians would have taken it to seriously mean "Eating the food and grabbing the plates or bowls of the orphans and the poor".
Buford is trying his level best not to understand. lol!
