Well I think he might have added a new one today...

Strange isn't it...not sure why someone of such great faith is concerned about that...but...oh well!

You are correct.
Paul puts it this way:

Without compromising my beliefs, I have learned a lot 'here' from non-believer's. Some Christians can be downright hateful as well. I just don't insist they see it my way, unless they ask...

Is *that* what you call it? "Objective?" Like when you say, "I have jesus in me, and everything you say against jesus is anti-christ and inspired by satan. Now, let's talk."
You call *that* objective?

That's now your "paraphrase," you are blatantly making up shit again.
Your jesus never lived--he's a myth.
kait - i'm flattered that you care enough to compile this stuff.

for your sake, i'm gonna keep on telling you that God proved His love for you through sending His Son. try as you may, there's just no valid argument against history and truth:)

Ehrman's main points in this area is that the primary author of Luke/Acts wrote these passages because the style of them is very Lukan. And Ehrman believes that primary author used the we pronouns in his original text to give the false impression that he was an eyewitness to the travels of Paul. But his arguments for this don't really add up in my mind.
Since Luke/Acts is presented as a collection of "tales told" there would be nothing unusual about differing styles with in it. IMHO it lends more to the credibility of the author's preface in each book.

So please explain what this Magic Spook is. Are you possesed by a ghost or something ? Doesn't being a ghost mean you are dead but to stupid get into Heaven ?

Sure sounds like the demons Jesus chased out of folks. Are you possed by a demon ?

I like the way "redactor" is used. It isn't PC to call it fraud and forgery. <smile>

Yes. I do.
I think whether an earlier source was used is not especially relevant -- and impossible to know. But I know "Luke" was a sophisticated writer and likely would not have carried the 1st person plural pronouns over from the earlier source or inserted them himself.
The effort is too clumsy for that writer. Ehrman admits it is a clumsy effort but, in essence, says that is irrelevant because the effort succeeded.
I think it is relevant and suggests a clumsy redactor, similar to the redactor(s) who -- successfully -- added the jumble of 1rst and 3rd person, as well as singular and plural 1st person narrative to John 21:24-5. We *know* that was a late addition by a clumsy redactor that was successful.

Hello,
Hot nymphs, Irish vagabonds, Vidorian legends, Chess-playing jurists, Catholic pugilists, Hip Diagnoses, Spiritual guides, wolves, witches, and dumb-ass Christer snitches, how is everything in the hippest, coolest, most Xcntric, most eclectic, most electric, most ridiculous, meticulous, vertiginous, solicitous, ambiguous, solicitous, religulous thread on the tubes? I see WINLAC's little mascot, Beijar's Beyotch, is still wandering and waxing poetically about how he has to spend so much time worrying about how much time he has to spend so much time worrying about how much time he has to spend so much time worrying about how much time mac nymphs.

I suspect the original author is not the fraud -- in this instance. Not that it matters much, given his willingness to swipe earlier sources,....
Which he readily admits in his opening lines.

I admire his candor on that.
