And no, I really don't care if others believe or not.. I was stating that just maybe he was reading the bible to find something wrong instead of the good..
Yeah, some people do get caught up in the details and missing content of the Bible and miss the point, I did it myself once upon a time, but hey, each to their own right? Besides, you never know when the good might seep in, it did for me, now I just have to think about going to church at some point.....
Peace <3

Obviously not in your case. You've recently shown what a soulless bastard you are.

You're still deluding yourself, Clownie.
Your problem is your hypocrisy, not your following Jesus.
Because you don't follow Jesus.
You only claim to.

If Crossan is right, the dogs devoured his corpse after he was crucified.

That'd be kind of a Charlie Sheen winning moment by most standards.

And you're not the only one.
But my preference is for a redaction.
I believe the majority position is, coming at the end, the final pages were lost -- separated from the rest of the text. Last I checked, the minority view was the gospel was intended to end at 16:8.
I disagree with both positions and side with Powell. But I admit we are in the super-minority.
I don't know if anyone will ever know for sure.

Just thought I would pull out a contemporary resource and see what they said. The Cambridge Companion to the Bible, Second Editio,n doesn't even mention any of the longer endings (3 isn't it?) It just ends that section on Mark like this:

"The theme of the hidden nature of the divine purpose is implied in the strange ending of Mark (16:8), where the women who have seen the young man at the tomb say nothing to anyone but are filled with astonishment, fear and trembling. Those reactions, however, are precisely the ones attributed to Daniel (Daniel 10:7-12) after God has granted him visions of the end-time and the throne of God. The very terms used here by Mark are the same as those found in one of the ancient Greek versions of Daniel..." - p.529

I did not know that.

That's what your religions wants you to believe.

But you prove here daily that you don't really believe it either.

And I love that part.

Oh no...you have misunderstood...I am not the least bit upset.
There are much more important events in life to be upset over than a handful of people on Topix that have differing opinions.
For that...every day & twice on Sundays.
