You are absolutely required to stand against those others. Would you wish someone to take their incorrect information and become an incorrect christian like they are?
You are failing any potential christain by not standing up to them.
I think you are chicken.
Yes, he's chicken. There's no reason to think that he does it because it's none of his business, as he gets in the business of every non-Christian here. I think he's not only a chicken, but a liar to boot.

She didn't say anything about being able to 'handle it'. She said that there are some who can't appreciate art for what it is...beautiful...and have to make something obscene out of it. That's an explanation of her post since you don't seem to be able to read.

I have done it all babe. Been there and back and around all of it. You live a life of lies and guesses. You will die as all humans do at most...80 years. Nothing to be proud about eh? You have your chance as I, to better ourselves. You reject all of it, I tread carefully accepting it with discretion. Make your mark, an unknown mark in this world...you will be forgotten by all who have ever heard your putrid name of doubts.

For what purpose then were the gospels written? Who wrote them? When were they written?
The four gospels are different because they were written to different groups of people. Do you know to whom the Book of Matthew was written? The Book of Mark? The book of Luke or John? What elements of each of these books indicate which audience they were written to?
Sure Luke wasn't an eyewitness, but can you explain why Luke consistently chose to focus on miracles of Christ more than any other apostle and how that is consistent with Luke's profile?
What reasons could the apostles have for writing their accounts differently?
If you give these questions some thought you might come to have a better appreciation for the New Testament.
So the events can be changed if they are to different groups of people? That explains a lot.

You assume that the gospels named after the disciples were actually written by them. It is widely believed by Biblical scholars (and has been for a very long time) that they are not.

Therefore, we will never know what the agenda of the separate authors were when they were writing the gospels. They each seem to think they have a story that the people to whom they are speaking will believe. Evidently, some were more gullible than others. John's audience seems certainly to have been so.

<quoted text>This is an odd argument for a believer to make. It sounds like it serves the skeptic's case more than yours.
The very fact that the writers had an agenda and tailored their message to their audience is NOT a strong case for divine inspiration. Instead it argues a case for concerted message manipulation with intent. It admits that each "gospel" was developed on the shoulders of the last. It is the anatomy of a legend in the making.
The very fact that a believer thinks it's a good argument for authenticity or veracity or whatever they think it proves reveals nothing but willful ignorance.
No offense, just sayin'.....
Peace.

I should have just waited to see if you addressed this. Your words are so much more eloquent!

Not a single one of the 500 mentioned ever wrote (or had written) one single word. You'd think that if it was such an awe-inspiring and monumental event, at least one person would have put something in writing.

Dr Reality couldn't get that picture out of his mind. He must have called me every name in the book for using that picture. He even went so far as to say that the same thing would happen to me that happened to a woman in a movie that he watched. She was a prostitute...she was beaten...raped...and then murdered. How's that for Christian love.

Funny thing is...the name of that piece of art is..."Eve in the Garden"! LOL

I suppose that they prefer to see Eve depicted as a misshapen woman with a fig leaf over each breast and a couple covering her pubic area...go figure!

I love that piece and have missed it since I took it down...might have to put her back where she belongs!:-)

Geesh...much todo about a bare back and a slight glimpse of one breast. More than that shows in most bathing suits.

i have been in the medical profession for almost 30yrs. i know all about death. death doesn't scare me. i live each day. one day at a time. seeing the beauty in each day. i hug my children and granddaughter and tell them i love them. i hug my husband and tell him how lucky i am to have him. i make each day count.

i don't fret about what comes afte death. making a hedge bet hoping to get my pie in the sky. you are afraid, to realize that humans are mortals.

your boogey man doesn't scare me.

most people [on the internet] who brag and boast about "doing it all and seen it all" are pretending.

longevity or not, runs in families. then there is lifestyle. that plays a part in how long you live.

i have a friend, her grandmother is going to be 107 in two months. the lady still lives in her home. she still cooks, does her laundry, sews, quilts, crochets and has a garden each year.

she is amazing! and an inspiration! she has a wonderful sense of humor.

she tells everyone LIVE EACH DAY ONE AT A TIME AND DON'T WASTE ONE MINUTE DWELLING ON SHOULDA-COULDA-WOULDA.

this lady raised 7 children. i love her to pieces.

if my day comes tomorrow, the only thing i will regret is missing milestones in my children and grandchildren's lives. nothing more nothing less.

<quoted text> The Greek for risen is 'egeiro'. It is the exact same Greek word used in Luke 24:6 and Matt.24:6. Basically the same verse in in all three Gospels. The meaning is obvious.
<quoted text> The body was not there and the text says as much.
This is the meaning of the word 'egeiro' as used in Greek at the time the words were written in all three gospels:

1) to arouse, cause to rise
a) to arouse from sleep, to awake
b) to arouse from the sleep of death, to recall the dead to life
c) to cause to rise from a seat or bed etc.
d) to raise up, produce, cause to appear
1) to cause to appear, bring before the public
2) to raise up, stir up, against one
3) to raise up i.e. cause to be born
4) of buildings, to raise up, construct, erect

Nothing about resurrection in that at all.

Why did you change your name?

Doesn't it, though!

By the way, I guess your question to me about the 'res dude' is answered by now. I didn't expect him/her to actually answer my question or to return. I did expect a new sock to show up and was not disappointed.

Oh well, another down.

This painting reminds me of your avatar.

I suppose that they will consider her a harlot too.

It is my understanding that it is a piece that was copied from the Sistine Chapel...painted by Michelangelo...commissioned by the Pope at that time (1500's). The work on the ceiling consists of several nude paintings of both male and female.

So I don't know what happened...seems that at one time they weren't such prudes!

cuz the other apostles didn't write their testimonies!
that's why the tommy/comic-book that you like better wasn't included, cuz it contradicts the rest;)
This goes to show you know absolutely nothing about the writings that were done almost simultaneously to those that were chosen for you by the Catholic Church and the Emperor Constantine.

Every time you type, you show your willful ignorance.

i'll site the same citation from the comic book that you usually site, something to the effect: "to know yourself is to understand the kingdom of God"
this philosophy is a far cry from the 'authorized' testimonies which speak much of dying to self in order to find life;)
this is NOT rocket science folks.....
Yeah...authorized by the Catholic church you claim isn't Christian and Emperor Constantine. Haha. And you still abide by their decisions, don't question them one bit and don't study enough to even know the book they chose for you.
