How much knowledge do you have of the composition of that council and its denouement?
not much, but i'm sure if you were there it would have been done much better;)

Okey dokey, for anyone who might be still interested, I found the list I was looking for recently. It was tucked away in "Understanding Daniel", something I wrote a few years ago while the family waited for me dear ole dad to pass away.
Please feel free to scroll on by if it ain't your bag.
Identifying the Traits of Apocalyptic Literature:
1. Eschatology: Authors of apocalyptic literature are convinced that they are living in the “end times”, that very soon the deity will intervene and everything will change. It is imminent and it will happen soon.
2. Pseudepigraphy: Apocalyptic literature typically presents itself as being written during a previous time by a hero of old, someone recognizable from the past for the purpose of establishing credibility. We have apocalypses written in the names of Enoch, Abraham, Moses, Ezra, Daniel, John and others.
3. Mystical Visions: Apocalyptic authors have their heroes experience confusing divine visions that will often need to be explained by a divine being. These visions will typically be of surreal creatures or events used metaphorically to represent people or places of the author’s past, present and imagined future.
4. Failure: Apocalyptic literature is always wrong. The events leading up to the time of authorship are relevant and amazingly very accurate; the events following the time of authorship are always, always wrong. After all, who can truly tell the future, eh?
Now if I can just remember where I got the friggin' list.
Cool. And useful. Thanks!

Think about it though. God created all humans correct? Now God took one chosen group and gave them an ethical system known as the Ten Commandments. Next he gave them the right too take the land of milk and honey from the inhabitants. Those inhabitants did not have any set of rules. Now the only thing the God required was to be worshiped and obeyed. The inhabitants were given no such chance. Is this fair?
The Bible says that other people have their own Gods...

From Hebrew perspective of ancient times, calling a bat a bird made sense.(because it could fly like a bird) Now, in the modern age we categorize animal species more specifically. The bat is a mammal and not a bird. Hope that helps...:)
Yeah, but...

If all of it was really inspired by some "One True God", then He could have done a MUCH better job of telling people what the world was REALLY like. You know, the facts about evolution, the Earth going around the Sun, etc, etc, etc.

Sorry, I really have to be more specific. At that time, God had not yet chosen His people but after long suffering as slaves, the Israelites/Hebrews, still loved God so He got them out, then was going to end it until Moses intervened on our behalf. God chose them in Deuteronomy. Until Jesus, now, we are once again *all* God's children.
Before Deuteronomy, all were God's children. Many couldn't care less.
Good luck trying to find any Bible verses to support that...

Then your previous comment about the Council of Nicea has no credibility. Why bring it up if you don't actually know what you're talking about? Oh right, Christian.

<quoted text>Hey, G. That would be like inventing crack to cure cocaine dependence. And opium was touted as a cure for alcoholism and morphine a cure for opium addiction. Crazy. Just like trying to use the addiction of religion.
Yup.

Pot and LSD were both used to treat alcoholism.

That is how Heroin got its name. It was the "female hero" to rescue morphine addicts.

Heroin is nothing more than morphine heated in the presence of white vinegar.

15 minutes to turn $100 of white powder into $10,000 of white powder.

No, because disagreement has nothing to do with it. You were just plainly, evasively wrong. To reiterate, no, you'd really have to clean up your act. You lack the discernment of boundaries and even the simple code of polite, human interaction. That happens among many who liken themselves as kindred spirits with a god they have wholly composed and fashioned after their own psyche. It is understandable but easily remedied.

Deflective. Uh, nothing to see here. Ahem.

In 1979, an 11 year old German boy was taken to the mountains by his priest, plied with alcohol, locked in a room, stripped naked and raped. The priest was assigned to therapy and made to promise to no longer have contact with children. Resigning Pope Benny the Rat (R - Picked by God, quits) was then a Cardinal. He moved the priest to another parish where he quickly resumed his pastoral duties and his dutiful rapes. This is but one story among the many. The most egregious, if these heinous acts can even be quantified, was at the school for the deaf. The priests could sign and knew which parents could not. Those boys were repeatedly raped. When visiting day came along, the boys would sign, "Father Nelson is raping me!" The priests would translate, "Billy is having a wonderful time here." Visitation was monitored and mail was censored. This RICO crime group needs to be disbanded and all its asserts need to be used for recompense and to actually help the poor.

It's all documented in Mea Maxima Culpa. Disgusting.
