Oh I know... I don't mind carrying on, but when people start hurling insults, now that's just wrong. I actually believe that they very well may attend a church. That's sad really because it is doing them no good, but everything they do is all in the name of their "god". I say let them smear their imaginary friends name as much as they want to. It is up to them of course.
thanks

T-Town, you're one of the few people I still see who's been posting as long as I have and that's a rare site these days!

You rarely see anyone either still posting or using their original moniker.

I was under the impression that your comments were directed at me.
Givemeliberty wrote:
Again why was it that "Paul" who never met Jesus outside of dreams and visions/hallucinations was the first to write about him?
Would you consider the following as a plausible explanation?

Paul was the first to write, because Paul was a member of the Sanhedrin. Members of the Jewish Sanhedrin were very well educated. The men that Jesus chose as His disciples were (with the exception of Matthew) working class men. In that culture,(a predominantly oral culture) it's not unreasonable to infer or conclude that a better educated man would be the first to write everything down.

Isn't that a reasonable alternative to consider?

They voted on what books would be in the bible and even on how those books should be worded. Several edits were made, in some cases drastic edits completely rewriting and even adding entire pages worth of new additions.
If you do not even know that Paul had visions and dreams about Jesus I can clearly see you have a very low understanding of the bible. I try to dumb or down for you guys I really do. But even then there comes a time when I can't just hold your hand on everything. Do read up on Paul and try to catch up to when I was in Sunday school.
Thanks
<quoted text>
Please don't be so hasty in your thought process. I asked YOU to tell me where exactly in the NT Paul claimed that his account of seeing Jesus is only a dream or vision. I know the story of the Damascus Road incident. I'm asking you to provide evidence that Paul claimed that it was ONLY a VISION or DREAM.

Insulting remarks don't move the dialogue forward very well do they?

I agree, but there were several times I could have been banned as well but somehow made it through, now I wonder if mods give us any more respect due to our making it this far? I'm not sure I have the answer either? lol

Isn't your celebration a bit premature? What Baptist church did you attend? First Baptist? Cavalry Baptist?
I attended Catholic church until my parents divorced. Then attended First Baptist as a teen. I lost my faith in my twenties and just came back to it within the last 7 years. Now I consider myself Protestant non-denominational. I believe in the traditional orthodox Protestant view as established at the Council of Nicea and the Council of Laodicea. I believe Martin Luther was correct in his action to nail his 95 Theses to the door of the church in Wittenburg, Germany. This paved the way for the common man to learn the truth of the gospels and break the man-made authority imposed by the Catholic church. I agree that Constantine used the church more for political expediency than for his own spiritual growth.
Now you know my Christian history. What is your history?
Interesting. Then maybe you **would** be interested in what this guy has to say.

I apologize for the introduction-- the sound is pretty poor quality. But the speech gets better.

Sound quality aside, this person is an actual historian, and approaches the question strictly from a historian's point of view, neither a believer nor a non-believer's view.

The description: Published on Mar 28, 2013

Dr. Richard Carrier flew in from California to lecture the UNCG Atheists, Agnostics, and Skeptics on the historicity of Christ. The historicity of Christ has appeared in the public consciousness over the last few years because of such individuals such as Robert Price and Dr. Carrier. This topic deals with the analysis of historical data to determine if Jesus existed as an actual person.

Bart cracks me up because he talks all the time about how inaccurate the NT especially the gospels are and how they cannot be looked at as reliable. Then in his book about Jesus existing his proof for Jesus existing? The NT gospels! Lmfao!
Yes he even destroys the Josephus and Tacitus forgeries stating that neither of these men could write as they did about Jesus and not suffer tremendously.
<quoted text>
My mistake-- it wasn't Bart, it was Dr. Richard Carrier. I've not heard your man, but I'll look for him.

The video I saw was here: " http://youtu.be/mwUZOZN-9dc" ; poor audio, but worth your hour to listen.

He's a real historian, using real historian's methodology.
