I didn't slap anyone. We're having a conversation, idiot. People having a conversation don't honk their red nose and claim a victory when there is simply a conversation going on. Try to remember that as you pedal you little clown car down the expressway.

My 9 and 10 year old grandchildren write MUCH better than that, so don't be insulting children like that.

Since the discussion has been about xianity, I have been referring to that Bible. Most other religions call their holy works something else, like the Kama Sutra, Tao Te Jing, etc, etc, etc.
As for specific references, I am afraid that I have been rather lazy on this, I am passing along info that I learned from my Jewish friends without looking up the specific passages for myself.
And the mark is meeting the expectations that were (allegedly) received by Moses from the God of the Bible and handed down to the children of Israel in the Torah (aka Pentateuch), the first five books of the Bible). By definition, all sin is described in those books.
Fine.

We've narrowed it down to the first five books of the Hebrew Bible. Now, which key passage(s)? What mark?

And regardless of which passage(s), are those really what most Christians define as sin, or is they what *you* define as sin based on those documents?

Are the definitions the same?

Huh? Can't be:
26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy *son*!
27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto *his* own home.
"Son" and "his" (translated from Greek, granted) indicate a male, and by reference John.
I think whoever said it was Lazarus was correct. He is the only one Jesus ever claimed to love.

I'll have to check that out @ the library, Oscar. I know that Gilgamesh is the oldest literature ever.
For Jewish history, try Michener's The Source.
I LOVED that book. But I wouldn't take it as Jewish history altogether, though it does have some in it.

Of course they are not the same. My answer was based on the Bible, xians are going off of things that were made up by xians in the early churches.

For the rest, see my previous post.

There are 22 words (or compound words)in Hebrew used for word which is translated 'sin' and 23 in Greek. You would need a specific verse and the Hebrew or Greek word used in that particular verse to know exactly what it means. Just sayin'.

The more the merrier!

How ever, I would point out that this IS referring to the God of the Bible, so this only applies to the children of Israel being watched...
