so i have to identify with the likes of viking, knowledge and lordhaha by super-imposing myself over them before you'll respect me??? sorry, no-can-do; i'm only responsible for myself here and so are they & you're just gonna hafta understand that!
This post is against biblical teaching...unless you don't see their behavior as sin. You are instructed to go to your brothers and sisters in Christ when they have sinned. You are to encourage each other...care for them...help them when needed. So you are in a sense responsible for them...according to scripture.

That is one of your problems Wasup...it is always just about you.

okay, Annie, let's cut to the chase:
1st off, i can't send you to hell and it's the last place i want you to go. i'm just trying to help you understand the redemption that's been purchased for you apart from your abilities or inabilities to earn it!
so, you can admit to a fault of being harder on christians than on non-christians; i give you credit for that & it's more than most have done:)
can you admit to being born a sinner by nature and seperate from the nature of God?
If you are not concerned about your brothers and sisters...then why concern yourself with me and what I believe.

Once again...you are trying to turn this into a conversation about me...deflection against you having to answer any questions concerning you.

Before you worry about me...maybe you should take a look at what we see when we look at you.

Same old deflection routine Wasup...check back with me when you are ready to discuss both sides of this issue.

can we suffice it to say that the church should be for you and not against you?:)

That parable deals with unbelievers outside the church. Jesus is warning you to not toss them aside since you do not know who will become believers.

Here is what Jesus tells you to do with those inside the church (body of Christ) if they sin.

Matthew 18

Dealing With Sin

15 “If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. 16 But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’[d] 17 If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector.

Four writings? Which writings are you talking about? The bible has 66 books in it that reference God, not to mention other books in which claim eyewitness to Jesus Christ. Take the Book of Mormon for example. If you google "books that testify of Christ" the Book of Mormon is related to 7 out of 10 results posted on the first page. In all the instances that the bible is listed on the first page of results it is mentioned in association with the Book of Mormon. Thats kinda interesting.
Eye witnesses alive for thousands of years after the fact ... yeah, either there are a ton of immortals living in secret or you don't understand what eye witness means.

I have never said anything derogatory about your picture and I certainly have not said anything about it in a sexual context Wasup.

I changed it because of the immaturity of a few that can not appreciate the beauty of art for what it is. Where I saw beauty, purity, honesty and vulnerability there were those of you that could only see a bare back and a glimpse of a woman's breast.

It Never Happened. The ony people who "recorded jesus's words" were four con-men, allegedly named Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
There a lot more than just the four in the Bible.

There are over 150 Christian texts ommited.

BTW This is one of the reasons that I seldom post to you Wasup...you never address the context of anyone's post...you deflect either by some silly nonsense or you try to change the subject.

believe Jesus' words then, as recorde by His apostles & i'll stop challenging you and instead receive you as a brother.
Oh wait now.

You'll say this - "believe Jesus' words then" - but in fact, you don't believe alot of his teachings yourself.

You may be able to pull a fast one around your fellow followers, but in truth, your ruse is just to mislead.

you can't pick & choose which apostles though cuz Jesus did the choosing for us!
Then why do you believe less than six of the original 13 Apostles, and a 3rd generation disciple?

Then stop yelling about it, and post your findings?

Do you find comfort in calling other people names?

How does your showing of discourse make you a so-called "Christian"? Especially with the tone that you have used.

So - why are you no longer a "Christian"?

No,it doesn't.

You must be reading from a newer version than this one:

http://www.codexsinaiticus.org/en/manuscript.... Query&book=34&chapter= 16&lid=en&side=r&v erse=8&zoomSlider=0

Mark 16:1-8
16:1 And when the sabbath had passed, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint him.

2 And very early on the first of the week they came to the sepulcher, the sun having risen.

3 And they said among themselves: Who shall roll away for us the stone from the door of the sepulcher?

4 And looking up they see that the stone had been rolled away; for it was very great.

5 And they entered the sepulcher and saw a young man, sitting at the right side, clothed in a white robe; and they were amazed.

6 But he says to them: Be not amazed. You seek Jesus the Nazarene who was crucified; he has risen, he is not here: see the place where they laid him.

7 But go, tell his disciples, especially Peter, that he goes before you into Galilee: there you shall see him, as he said to you.

8 And going out they fled from the sepulcher; for trembling and astonishment had seized them; and they said nothing to any one, for they were afraid.

**********
6 But he says to them: Be not amazed. You seek Jesus the Nazarene who was crucified; he has risen, he is not here: see the place where they laid him.

- first off, it was Mark 16:6 that shows "he has risen".
- this symbolism is in regards to the Spirit transcending, not a physical body.
- Another plausible meaning to this is that some scholars also believe that Jesus may have been associated to the Essenes, and the description of the person in passage Mark 16:5 - clearly describes the attire that the Essenes wore.

Unfortunately, this edition of the Bible, the earliest on record, ends with line eight, thus the truth is no where to be found, as it ends without elaborating on the actual happening.

Findings??? He has no findings...

I think his head got stuck up his butt while he was looking for those findings.

I know...not a typical response from me. Believe me...this was a lot better than what I was thinking.
