Likely why most Jews don't claim Christ as their Savior. Christianity isn't of the Torah. Judaism is.
Yep. According to Christianity you can shove a stick up a lamb's ass and call it a sacrifice.

What one calls facts doesn't make any difference.

You're proving that point.

<quoted text>Keeping you honest, the others did not mention any antichrist, you need to differentiate between the Gospel and the epistles when citing "John" as well.
All are forgeries though and none are written by the apostle after whom they are named.
The others are talking about the antichrist.

Christians, as we have just seen, will often attempt to combine disperate texts to show that the Bible mentions The Antichrist, while the texts themselvse say no such thing.

They will take the Johannine letters against the docetists where the word antichrist is used to describe their competitors.

They will take the reference to the Seleucid king, Antiochus Epiphanes, from Daniel and turn that beast into The Antichrist, without the text saying that.

They will take the reference to the reincarnated Nero from Revelation and turn that beast into The Antichrist, removing the text from its context.

Bible learnin' time:

In apocalyptic writing, the seer often can not understand the visions, so a divine figure will always clarify, as is the case in Rev. 13. If one continues reading to chapter 17, the divine figure explains:

(This requires a mind that has wisdom.) The seven heads are seven mountains the woman sits on. They are also seven kings: five have fallen; one is, and the other has not yet come, but whenever he does come, he must remain for only a brief time. The beast that was, and is not, is himself an eighth king and yet is one of the seven, and is going to destruction.

Seven kings, five have fallen; >one is<, and the other has not yet come...

It requires a mind that has wisdom.*snort*

Worst tworld combined is the obnoxious Militaristic US interventionist imperialist Empire builder!

The Int'l War crimes tribunal had tried Bushjr & co. for War crimes agaisnt humanity, you next!

This is what out US As CHRISTAIN NATION represents:

Death is our business and business is good. A slogan painted on a Vietnam War U.S. helicopter unit's quarters 'Death is our business and business is good.'

Correct.

Facts are verifiable, like the current example of me showing the readers, with your help of course, "the verifiable fact" that The Antichrist is not found within the texts of the Bible.

What you or I or anyone else thinks about those facts is immaterial, the facts is just the facts. The facts don't care, the simpy exist and can be verified, regardless of what anyone says about them.

The OT should have been dropped from their Bible. Would have given thema better case.
Ain't that the truth, something I've said for quite a while. They should have just pretty much said:

"Ummm, hey, guys, we're a new religion and really are just making most of it up as we go. Suggestions are welcomed."

Which is only mentioned in the Epistles of John.
It is antichrist, not THE antichrist.

What preacher told you that the other things were "The Antichrist" or that "The Antichrist" even exists ?

Christianity is the equivalent of believing that the kitten in Little Red Ridinghood is Ben Franklin, the first Emperor of the USA.

It would have been the honest thing to do.

Technically, it was removed from the first closed Christian canon.

Thank you. xoxo. I will humble myself to stand for the Bible and my Savior, but I cannot condone what many others so in the name of Christianity. It has no conditions to qualify for the name-tag. It is as superficial as me claiming I am invisible at the moment.
I prefer more that the Shepherd calls me as being of His flock than me telling others that I am. My need to prove that to others is meaningless. Neither did my God tell me to hate, persecute, judge, or condemn those that do not believe as me.
Interesting use of language, there.

Only among fundies can "humble" mean "arrogant", and "sheep" mean "leader"...

So how would I verify these 'facts' that currently only seem like your interpretation?
