That is correct. He is a born liar. No such event ever took place.......NOT EVER. Kaitlin, whose real name is Kevin, is a highly delusional, schizophrenic, transsexual mutation who lives in his very own tortured Twilight Zone. He is a crushing failure in the real world so he is therefore compelled to create his own version of reality. A reality in which Jesus Christ never existed and Hercules is the savior of the world. Kevin is an excellent case study of a satanically possessed jackass gone wild.

Yes it is. With you being specific in your query, I can answer.
I don't listen to Jesus, but utilize the teachigns that some guy scribed that are attributed to Jesus.
As no one really knows for sure that Jesus lived at all, the teachings associated to him, to me, are valid for use in living my life on a day-to-day basis.
Unfortunately, you are correct in your statement, all the texts we have to "go on" are penned from someone other than Jesus.
So why do you only accept those teachings that man has deemed for you to believe? If you say you believe in all of Jesus, then do it, and stop playing footsie with the pastor.

let me break our differences down for you and hopefully you can respect them. if not, i'll associate you with the devil:
Oh, I respect your beliefs everytime you post them. I just think you have nothing but personal opinions to substantiate them. Which ultimately, can be classified as "beliefs of another man".

As for the devil comment above - you are clueless. The "devil" is a construct of man, and like your "God", has never been proven to exist.

You are roaming around in circles of despair, put onto you by other men in despair.

1 - "but utilize the teachings that some guy scribed that are attributed to Jesus"
this is a blatant lie since you promote SELF as your god while Jesus promoted the Father and the idea of death to the part of self which opposes putting God and His Kingdom above all else
It is not a lie at all, but based upon facts.

Another error you have in your statement, is that I think "Self" is my god. You are incorrect, yet again. I may promote the ability of an individual to do the things that any religious person can do, without the crutch of that religion. You oppose that, because you can't accept that even what you do here, is directly related to the Self. I'm just wondering why you are so blinded by religion to even understand this basic tenet of life.

Strike one.

i categorically reject your idea and believe the Gospels as authentic and accurate from eye witnesses hand-picked by Jesus Himself who died as martyrs so we could have the Truth in all generations
Coorection to you statement:
you wrote: "....believe the Gospels as authentic and accurate from eye witnesses hand-picked by Jesus Himself who died as martyrs so we could have the Truth in all generations"
- Correction:
"....believe the Gospels as authentic and accurate from the selected eye witnesses hand-picked by men in order to convery the story of Jesus...."
- yes waaasssuuup - you forgot the critical point that not all of the original 13 Apostles were used to devise the religion you believe is complete. In fact, there are only less than six of thos original 13 Apostles combined with at least two 3rd generation disciples that make up the NT.

Strike two.

i exercise discretion in what i receive as from man vs God on a daily basis; i'm doing so now with you, a rejected 'pastor'
Again, I am not a rejected pastor or anyone with religious creditials.

You wrote: "i exercise discretion in what i receive as from man vs God on a daily basis"
- which is Self.

Why do you promote the Self in one statement, and then refute that it exists in the next?

You are confused.

Hi , good article !
I was faced with the same problem a few years back.. But i knew that God is present..but i only want to find the correct God and correct path..So luckily i found one religion which has more answers than i have questions !!
I would suggest that you should search for answers outside christianity..
I rejected the bible when i came to know through the internet that jesus was not born on 25th dec..it was a marketing strategy to lure the pagans !!
I have found another abrahamic religion and now i worship the God of Adam, Noah, Moses, jesus and Muhammad pbuh!!
I think we all should worship Gid there is only a matter of which path to follow.we wud have to answer our creator after we die..
Happy searching :)
Gaara, this will serve as a funeral notice: Our fellow poster Dearth of Couth went down the "path" to which you refer. He entered therein by the broad gate.

People have always claimed that the Gods of their neighbors were devils. That does not change the fact that you worship a dead human and pretend that he was a god.

You say you believe that Jesus was born of a virgin, brought the dead back to life and gave sight to the blind.
However, you refuse to believe that Jesus is God the Creator, and by so doing you call Jesus a liar when he stated that he and the Father are one.
So you are admitting that you believe in a liar.
Jesus was NEVER anything more than just another Jewish preacher. You have grossly misunderstood what he said: he felt that he was doing exactly what the God of the Bible intended; that the Jewish people had fallen away from the proper practices of Judaism , and that he had the "one true way".

1. You demonstrate that you are sane, by acknowledging the historical figure, Jesus.
2. You demonstrate that you are honest, by reporting what he taught.
3. You also show that you wish to pursue truth and accuracy.

you put a lot of thought & work into this, but i can summarize it all in a short sentence:

the seductive & lying spirit in you envys & wants to destroy the Spirit of God in me, just like it did in the serpent to Eve.

not gonna happen. instead of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (aka self) that you're offering me once, i'd like to offer you to eat from the Tree of Life (aka from the Cross of Christ)!

"knowledge of good and evil (aka self)"
- and yet "God" protected Adam and Eve from this tree - because of why? "He" didn't want people to understand themselves?

Are you afraid of knowing your faults, or do you like leaning on others for causing them?

classic satanic response; "you have not been redeemed" is akin to satan trying to foster doubt in Jesus saying "IF you're the son of god, jump off this building...etc"
