lol - of course you do.

could you answer me this:

if the cain & abel account in genesis were true, who do you think the good guy in the story is; i.e., who do you identify with:

a - cain for being angry with his believing brother?
or
b - abel for offering the acceptable sacracife to God?

There is a primary author of the text. Did he use material before his text? Yes. Where there changes after him? Yes. That is my point with the "we passages" of Luke. I think a redactor inserted the first person plural in those passage the prime author.
It makes sense but so do a lot of other ways of looking at it.

In general what we do "know" is that it is far from a first hand account of any activities of Jesus, the Apostles or Paul let alone a "true and accurate account" of much of anything except the gullibility and self deceit of humans.

If a Christian 1st cent.'DSS' is ever discovered I think many people (believers and non) will be sorely vexed.

<quoted text>Oh, I totally forgot that in the 613 laws given by God to the Israelites that he also had no laws against slavery, rape or homosexuality. Neither did any of the teachings of Jesus. Why were these things not important enough to address if you have time to rattle off 613 laws?
Maybe because they were the Laws of Moses, rather than God.

"intimidated by self-righteous & pretentious bullies" is exactly what made you a 'christian' in the first place.
okay DOG - how can anyone who trusts in the righteousness of Christ and not in their own righteousness be self-righteous?

wouldn't it stand to reason that the opposite is true; i.e., those who don't trust in the righteousness of Christ are trusting in their own rightoeusness and therefore they are self-righteous?

this is not a trick question....

I'm seeking a good civil debate...:D, you sound like a good candidate.
The term 'bible' tends to be misleading and which just simply put means a collection of writings.
Christians do not have a patent on that title.
Many cultures have their own manuscripts which they in turn call a bible.
Therefore, I refrain from using that term.
Bible simply means a book, and so The Book. Hence a bibliography, more websites than books nowadays.

Annie and WN, I know sometimes life can be confusing. Maybe this may help...
And I quote:
This comes in handy a lot of the time. I can leave it home, when I think it's gonna get me in trouble, or I can rent it out, when I don't need it. But now and then I go to a party, get drunk, and the next morning I can't for the life of me remember what I did with it.
First I looked around my apartment, and I couldn't find it. So I called up the place where the party was, they hadn't seen it either. I asked them to check the medicine cabinet 'cause for some reason I leave it there sometimes But not this time. So I told them if it pops up to let me know.
I called a few people who were at the party, but they were no help either. I was starting to get desperate. I really don't like being without my penis for too long. It makes me feel like less of a man, and I really hate having to sit down every time I take a leak.
After a few hours of searching the house, and calling everyone I could think of, I was starting to get very depressed, so I went to the Kiev, and ate breakfast. Then, as I walked down Second Avenue towards St. Mark's Place, where all those people sell used books and other junk on the street, I saw my penis lying on a blanket next to a broken toaster oven. Some guy was selling it.
I had to buy it off him. He wanted twenty-two bucks, but I talked him down to seventeen. I took it home, washed it off, and put it back on.
I was happy again. Complete.
People sometimes tell me I should get it permanently attached, but I don't know.
Even though sometimes it's a pain in the ass, I like having a detachable penis.

As I have said to you so many times,'No thank you'. I'm sure that I have a much better life for myself if I just leave you out of it.

Not according to the Bible.

Leviticus 22:1 (the beginning of the 613 laws)

Ooops!

You yourself are a trick question. Of course, when you compare yourself to God and say you have all the answers in the universe, everyone will just naturally bow down to you, right?

Being a Jackass for Jesus is your shtick.'WE' know that.'WE' do not see anything righteous in you. Remember, it is not God typing here. It's only you. YOU are the problem, not God.

First of all, sins are just self-induced nonsense. When I do something that is an error, a mistake, I honestly try to make up for it. I really try not to be hypocritical but I am sure there are times when I have been, especially when I was a practicing Christian.

That's all there is to it, waassuupp. You make amends in this lifetime because if you just ask an invisible deity to forgive you and keep doing the same thing, you've not only not learned anything but prove yourself to be a liar and a fool. Do you think God thinks you are repentant when you continue in the same behavior time after time? Do you think that asking a woman for a date when you are already married is not breaking one of God's laws? You've done it here repeatedly yet seem to think that law doesn't apply to you. If you covet another man's wife/girlfriend, you have already committed the sin in your mind according to the Bible.

Maybe you should work on the pile of trash in your own back yard before calling the cops because your neighbor left a hairpin laying in her driveway.
