brother Stomp, can you please field this question for me and give this guy the kind of answer he deserves?
thank you!:-)
Diversion.

What are you afraid of with answering it truthfully?

Or is it that you need to be dishonest and avoid answering it with truth altogether?

*sighs*

I understand your dismay. There isn't any statement by "God", but plenty by men.

Sad that humans have to believe men over "God", huh? And you being one of them, you just can't fathom being truthful about it, because it causes your belief to fail you.

Bummer for you.

Psst - the dismay won't last long, as long as you don't let it.

I understood that you were portraying yourself as a Jew. Is that not correct?
That is not correct. I have never claimed to be Jewish.

Yet their calendar says its the 23rd of Tishrei, 5774. And they claim they have been counting since creation. Go figger.
Not surprising, since belief in the myth greatly predates understanding of reality.

<quoted text>John 9, Jesus is speaking to the recently blind man who had just been cast out by the Jews:
34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
Once again, Jesus did NOT say that he was a god in that passage. What "John" wrote was a claim to be a Son of God. Big woop. Any and every observant male Jew is a Son of God.

The author of the gospel called John was the last of the gospel writers, and he wrote more than 60 years after Jesus died, possibly as late as a century after the "fact". There are numerous errors in the text. As such, it was not written by anyone who actually knew Jesus, nor had he been a Jew before writing it.

GoJohn was written as a religious tractate, NOT a historical record of events.

More to the point, there is no evidence that such an event ever actually took place.

(oh good grief & why do i bother?) yes, i'll try again:
why do you refuse to receive the biographies/gospels from the hand-picked eye-witnesses of Christ, but intstead only receive the subversive attacks against them written by men hundreds to millenia years after Christ?
None of the gospels were written by eye witnesses.

2 Kings 6:17 And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw...

The author of GoJohn lied.

As I understand it, there is NOT ONE miracle attributed to Jesus that had not been previously ascribed to one of the prophets in the Old Testament.

Gee, you mean that a group of people who KNEW what the prophecies concerning the Messiah said recognized the fact that Jesus failed to fulfill the prophecies?

Psalms was written 1000 years before Jesus was even born.

Coffman is a liar and you are a moron for believing him.

No insinuation at all.

YOUR Bible says it plainly!

Maybe you should read it someday instead of babbling bullshit on Topix.

Diverting from the question will not get you to the answer you seek.
Your response did not answer my question at all.
Where does "God" specifically state which texts are "of His inspiration" and which are not?

In other words, you cannot name a single verse where Jesus uttered such a blasphemy, but you are too dishonest to admit that.
