His actions speak for him..SHOW me ONE Fruit that he bears to prove that he has the Spirit in him or You..Show Me how he loves those who go against him. We are to judge BELIEVERS..Not unbelievers. Are you calling Jesus a liar? Here read this. And please just pray about it.
Jesus clearly tells us that if a "brother," meaning a believer, sins against us, we are first to rebuke him. What does this mean? To rebuke is to criticize sharply, to reprimand. This plays nicely into the Christian principle of speaking the truth in love. To rebuke a brother is not an act done with a hateful or prideful heart. No. In fact, it could easily be compared to the behavior of a loving mother correcting her child for a behavior that will bring harm to her child and/or others. She may raise her voice and speak sternly, but she does so with a loving heart and tongue. We are to rebuke our brothers privately, and with humble hearts. HAVE You enough love for your brother, that you would show him where he is wrong? I have and I have tried. YOU dont even try because he agrees with you and you are afraid of a dispute with him.
I agree.

<quoted text>Jackass for Satan just doesn't have the same ring to it as Jackass for Jesus.
Why is it that not a fundie who has ever darkened these sacred halls of non-Christians can make up their own little cute sayings?
How about Satyr for Satan? Scythian Ass for Satan? Simurgh for Satan?
Or, you could be totally original and use something like Licorn for Lucifer; Lamia for Lucifer; Lofriska for Lucifer.
But....
I don't expect you to ever do anything original.
Haha...excellent....

Even more real than the Hell which already exists between your ears. I pity you damned old man..........I pity you.
Sure...that's why we've learned you were part of the street gang system and also a convict...
Such a wonderful life...
Good grief sonny...do you really think we all want to live your nightmare of a childhood??
Too bad you are so weak and such a loser trying so hard to make your mark in Society.
Keep trying but I'd suggest another approach. Your failed religion is nothing but it will take you several years of failure to realize this.
Good luck on your venture...

sorry pal, but we're not called by God in groups; only as individuals:
"you have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you that you bare much fruit" Jesus
You chose yourself and claim Jesus chose you above others.
Self proclaimed sainthood !

Sure, and I am the Messiah. God said so himself, prove me wrong.

ROFLMAO

<quoted text>None of the writers of the gospels claimed to be an eye-witness. So no, three observers didn't write anything. No one wrote from first-hand knowledge.
Do you know how hard it would have been to collect 500 people to watch one itinerant Rabbi be crucified? Crucifixion was such a regular event that I doubt seriously it drew crowds at that time.
It's just another little touch of the writer to try to convince people. Evidently it certainly seems successful with some.
The only early Gospel that does claim to be an eyewitness and even names that eye witness has no mention of miracles, vitgin births, crucifiction, resurrection, being God, etc. it simply a record of Jesus' sayings, parables and teachings. It is the Gospel of Thomas. It is solely for the afire mentioned omissions that the Roman Church of Constantiine's Paulinists left it out of the Bible.... It was too truthful.

Because Jesus was just one of thousands of seditionists (traitors) that Pilate had crucified. After the first hundred he probaby gave up trying to remember names.

True. You don't know. It is a line from a popular song against child abuse.

I am doing good. I hope you are as well. I am staying busy at work. We usually get about 60 dogs in for boarding during Thankgiving. I am not looking forward to all of that. Have a great day and TRY to stay warm.:)
Yeah, that holiday travel season is coming up; lots of pets will be coming in for boarding. At least they'll be healthy.

It is you who is desperate to ignore the questions I'm asking. You have no answers, so you dodge and deflect. You are desperate to impose your beliefs on me; you cannot, and it shakes and weakens your own faith. It make you question it, even if only for a moment.
Those moments add up.
Yes, you have bitten the dust once again.

What I *hope* to get is HONEST answers. But from a "christian" like you? You'll excuse me if I don't hold my breath.

Who are you trying to convince, me or yourself? I strongly suspect the latter.

"Jesus" is the biggest fraud in human history.

Well WN, I appreciate your comments. I don't have any goal to convert you or anyone else. My only purpose is to correct the erroneous information that is out there. In truth, I have no problem with Kaitlin as a person, or with her stance as an unbeliever. That's not the problem for me.
Then why do you go so far out of your way to convince me of otherwise?
Resurrectionologist wrote:
<quoted text> The problem is the intellectual laziness involved in saying that Jesus never even existed.
There's no evidence of him. All the writings about him are based on an MYTHICAL FIGURE, AS I KEEP POINTING OUT.
Resurrectionologist wrote:
<quoted text> If she admits that Jesus existed,
I have no reason to. The evidence points the other way. You don't like Archya's book, that's clear; she did exhaustive research, and I referred you to that bibliography. Your response was to claim that all of her sources--five pages worth--were wrong, and that you and yours are all correct. And then you accused *me* of playing "pigeon chess."

You obviously operate on a double-standard.
Resurrectionologist wrote:
<quoted text> then that opens up a new can of worms with questions and answers that are difficult to discuss, let alone accept. If one does not wish to discuss these questions and answers, that's fine. That's free choice. But to sit there and say "Oh Jesus never even existed," is just a cowardly excuse to avoid the questions.
I showed you where your mythical jesus came from, and you continue to ignore it. You *will not* look at the timeline; yet you like to accuse me of "intellectual laziness."

Hypocrite.
Resurrectionologist wrote:
<quoted text>I could totally and respectfully understand if she were to say something like:
"Yes, Jesus existed, yes he got beat up and crucified for challenging the Jewish religious leaders and Roman authority, but I don't think he was a deity or that he rose from the dead."
Translation: "I'd be so happy if that uppity 'atheist' would just shut the fuck up and accept my position." It ain't gonna happen.
Resurrectionologist wrote:
<quoted text>I really could respect that honesty
It wouldn't be honest.
Resurrectionologist wrote:
<quoted text>even though I would disagree with it from a historical and theological perspective. And the debate would be over if she didn't want to continue.
*You* are the one who wants to continue. You tell me to accept your word; I give evidence and reasons why I refuse, and you don't like it.

I think you're trying to convince *yourself* more than me. This shows the weakness of your own faith.
