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 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.

Worshiping a false god like Jesus wont get you any mercy from the God of the Bible. He is a rather jealous sort who demands that His worshipers worship only Him, in the Manner taught by Moses.

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.

Do you honestly not know that you have already been judged and found wanting?
You are actually waiting for an imaginary Judge Wopner figure to hear your plea and weigh your good deeds and your bad deeds and come to a decision?
It's not going to work that way. You are already a guilty sinner. On Day of Judgement you will be in front of the Great White Throne only to hear the angel say that your name is not found in the Lamb's Book of Life. At that moment, you will hear the Lord say, "Depart from me, ye worker of iniquity, I never knew you". Then the angel will summarily throw you over into the abyss.
The only way you can change your inexorable march towards hell is to repent and turn to Him.

He will save all those who call upon his name. "All who come to me I will in no wise cast out."

I guess the rumors that Dusty got up the faith to go be with God were unfounded.

Seems despite all the bitching of these 'christians', staying in this shit hole of a planet with us scumsucking demins is better than dying and being in Heaven.

Even they don't believe in it. LOL
