Has been for at least 1700 years. Probably earlier since all Paul knew about the Jesus stories was that Jesus was raised from the dead.
How much of a sacrifice is it to be beaten for a day and crucified for a few hours then get up as God a couple days later ?
Especially when thousands of your fellow Jews were treated the same way and died (permanently)... and according to Christianity, all but one will to be eternally tortured in Hell.
Sorry, Christian theology makes Jesus and God out to be very evil beings.
Lo, it maketh my head to hurt.

"Know" ?

It is only mentioned in a single text (Luke) which itself tells us is a collection of handed down stories, nothing more.

You don't know much at all.

Nope. It is the truth.

It is also the only Gospel to be claimed to be by an actual Apostle in its own text.

Sorry, you still believe the lies of Constantine and the Catholic Church.

GOD is ALL and GOD is LOVE and even Jesus taught, love all and love GOD. The Kingdom of Heaven is Within. The only name I can give you is IAM. However, I don't believe a name is needed. GOD is all around us all the time, not everything needs a label. Dude, have you actually read the bible? Sure it's fairly new but it does have all this info aye... as for Gods and Mothers, well, just wait and see. I'll tell you this much, I will bow before no man.

there are more like 30 years before Christ's 3-year public ministry where little was recorded. we know that at the age of 12 He was already impressing the jewish leaders in the temple with His Q's and A's and that He grew strong in spirit and stature and subjected Himself to His parents. apparently that's all we need to know.
So now you are saying that most of his life and what he spoke was hidden from us?

I've been done with the Clown for now.

Why discuss things that they should already know and utilize.

Let them live their "half-Christian" life they see fit.

The turning point is coming quicker than I would have imagined.

American church statistics have reported [via Goodmanson]:

•In America, 3500 – 4000 churches close their doors each year
•Half of all churches last year did not add one new member through conversion growth
•Churches lose an estimated 2,765,000 people each year to nominalism and secularism
The 3,500-4,000 U.S. churches annual closure count is also cited by Ed Stetzer in “Planting New Churches in a Postmodern Age.”

Excerpted from The Condition of the Church in America, complied by Andy McAdams [via #mmi, 2005]:

•1,400 pastors in America leave the ministry monthly.
•Only 15% of churches in the United States are growing and just 2.2% of those are growing by conversion growth.
•10,000 churches in America disappeared in a five-year period.
“Fifteen hundred pastors leave the ministry each month due to moral failure, spiritual burnout, or contention in their churches.”[Source:“Death by Ministry" (slides + audio) by Darrin Patrick @ The Journey. It was re-published on Mark Driscoll's blog -- no longer available.]

It'll be "underground" soon.
