As do I.

It costs me nothing-- and if they are a bit rude? My smile rubs it in that I'm taking the high road, and they are not.

:D

I'd much rather be a bit smug, as I take the checks to the bank, than to get the dubious "satisfaction" of one-upping a now-former customer...

Funny how they cringe in fear when you ask them what church they attend eh? Totally ashamed of their church.

As I understand it, Constantine did listen at the council, and did offer ideas and suggestions, but not as the sole authority.

This he largely left to the bishops.
If he was merely judge, then why-- over the objections of nearly everyone there-- why did he railroad Revelations into cannon?

Unless he had an agenda to fulfill....

The vote was against revelations being put in the bible... Yes all of the books in your myth were voted on like a top 10 video count down. The words of God voted on and placed in by non believers lol!

And I won't even get into all of the books that were rewritten and heavily edited at the different councils... Oh yes there was more than one.

The inclusion of Revelations as I understand it was hotly contested. Many didn't want it included. But the Council of Nicea wasn't about canonizing the NT, but about unifying the Church as a whole.
The Church historian Eusebius was believed to be on friendly terms with Constantine, so we can't be sure how much bias there was in his accounts. This is an honest and fair thing to say. But in light of that, there is no reason to believe that Eusebius was dishonest either. Unless there are very good reasons to dismiss Eusebius' account of what happened at Nicea, then it is generally conceded that his account is accurate.

We can get into a long discussion about Constantine if you wish.
Oh by the way-
With regard to the story of the store keeper and snooty customer, I think I understand the difference in our opinions. I interpreted it as a story of moral principle,(like one of Aesop's Fables) while you understood it in the context of business ethics. From your viewpoint, within that context, you would be correct. I think this is one of the differences that keep atheists and theists from understanding each other. Our perspectives are different, and so are our concerns.

Yahweh/Jesus must have been too damn busy at that pottery sale that took historical precedence over the documenting of Jesus.

Fantastic bargains were to be had after all!:))

Indeed.

If Jesus was historical, and was divine?

Why did he not take **godly** steps to ensure his message-- his unambiguous message-- made it properly through history?

It's almost as if he wanted it to become garbled.

Or?

As if he was busy elsewhere....

Get one thing clear in your mind here.

The Council of Nicea was to solidify an Empire, to do so meant.

To make the made up bull shit match, so everybody could be taught to believe the same lies.

Cant have one side the Empire arguing about the color of holy underwear with the other. We all gots to have the same underpants. AND by my decree , from this day forward ...It is the word of GOD!

No, you could make a picture of Homer Simpson the same way but that doesn't mean that I would believe that Homer Simpson was anything more than a work of fiction.

In desperation mode trying to change the subject I see. When I asked you what church you belonged to you ran and hid as expected. So ashamed of your religion eh? You must be a Mormon or something.

It seems as of he would be smart enough to know that timely appropriate documentation would be necessary had he existed and was even remotely above average.

Either the NT is a myth or that pottery sale was too tempting. I can see it now an angel whispers.. Hey Jesus those fools aren't writing your account yet! Jesus replies, no worries it's not like it will take 50-100 plus years right? Surely my work and words will be so well documented and popular that they won't end up being voted on with a pagan as judge! Hahaha! That would just be wacky and no thoughtful person would accept it! We would have to force conversion by the sword and spear which is expressly forbidden in my teachings! Hahahaha!

Oops

Isn't it funny how so many Christholes are to scared to say what religion they belong to on here? Seriously I laugh at their humiliation.

All atheists are going to hell.

Revelation 21:8
King James Version (KJV)
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
