Hmmmm....I'd have to disagree.
Let me rephrase that: it's the *newest* of the age. It's only been around a couple of millennia.

So a person without the mental capacity to understand or believe such things won't get saved right?
A person born without the mental capacity to understand will go to be with Jesus when he dies.
A person who has had many opportunities, and then loses his marbles or falls into a coma before repenting and asking Jesus to save him will be consigned to hellfire for all eternity.

You sure have a powerful ability to disengage your true reaction to the wrath of God. They must have done a number on you as a child, with such compartmentalizing going on in your psyche.
Meditate on those words: God is angry with the wicked every day. That is you.
I am evil also, but Jesus has saved me, so I won't have to go to hell like you.
Your "god" has no balls.

Looks like some of us get off on feeling like a worm huh?
Alas! and did my Savior bleed
And did my Sovereign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I?

At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day!

Was it for crimes that I had done
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity! grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!

But drops of grief can ne’er repay
The debt of love I owe:
Here, Lord, I give my self away
’Tis all that I can do.

You shall have no mercy if you have never repented and surrendered to the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior.
You need mercy. At least you recognize that.
You see mercy as a good thing. At least you recognize that.
Without his mercy, there shall no flesh survive the 7 years of tribulation.
God in his mercy sent his only begotten Son to die in my place and in your place.
I admitted I was a sinner and believed upon him when I was 9. He saved me then and I am still saved. And you?
Your "god" is dickless and impotent, and so are you. That's what fills you with rage; you can't convert anyone to your cult.

Hi, thanks for following the discussion.
Do you have a citation that infers this?
Point being, I do agree that the digs are facts, and also agree that the interpretations can be misconstrued.
But I've never heard of any sites that are applicable to the "New Age" feel-good tale.
Thanks!
The archaelogy of Jericho show that it was not destroyed in the time of Joshua, it didn't exist until later.

Agreed.

At the moment I think Jesus was a Samaritan who was converted to Essene/Gnostic Judaism by his cousin John.

Do you have a link to support this - or just a hypothesis?
IMO - Hillel (also of the "house of David" lineage) seems to have been more prominent in the community, but really wasn't, if one looks at the whole picture. To believe Jesus came from this school is plausible, but really is an unknown suppostion.

Barring the difference in the actual numbers of...312 & 316 - I'd have to see additional info that you suggest ("most likely").
Hillel and Shammai [Shamai]
http://www.jewishhistory.org/hillel-and-shamm...
Hillel and Shamai had a minimum amount of legal disagreements between themselves; only three, in fact. However, each founded his own renowned academy of Torah learning and there arose numerous and contentious disagreements (312 to be precise) among the disciples. Eventually, it went beyond the mere number of disputes and became almost two diametrically opposed viewpoints.
There is a danger to oversimplify this, but generally the Academy of Shamai is thought to be stringent where the Academy of Hillel tends to be lenient. Generally, the Academy of Shamai looks at the potential whereas the Academy of Hillel looks at the actual. There are many theories advanced in the Jewish authorities throughout the centuries attempting to explain the central core of their disputes.
**********
http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/31...
Discussions Between the Schools.
The prevailing characteristics of the disputes are the restrictive tendency of the Shammaites and the moderation of the Hillelites. Three hundred and sixteen controversies between these two schools are preserved in the pages of the Talmud, affecting 221 Halakot, 29 halakic interpretations, and 66 guard-laws ("gezerot"); and out of the whole number only 55 (or about one-sixth) present the Shammaites on the side of leniency.
Thanks. That helps a lot.

You forgot to say "in your opinion" because it is not stated as such in the Bible. Those are one of those unknowns that had He wished to disclose those facts He would have, and will be His to decide come Judgment Day. We are not to put words in the mouth of the Lord. That is false doctrine, or dogma. At best, faulty indoctrination from assuming to know God's mind and who He will save.
