For those that believe in Jesus, christians to this day still argue over who killed him. Wouldn't christians at least know that information?
We know through historical records there were many men in Judea 2,000 years ago claiming to be the messiah. Why weren't they rounded up and crucified?
Back in the day historical records indicate that Jews did not crucify people but stoned them to death. Romans crucified people.
Christians claim they know Jesus, but don't know his date of birth, don't know what he did to support himself (his father supposedly a carpenter) don't know the date he died, and still don't know what group was responsible for his death if this man even existed.
There might have been a man who did good deeds back in the day, and if there was, Christians have done everything to take his own heritage away, by taking the Jew out of this man making him their own.
Jesus very common name back then and today,he preached a different word than the leaders of the day did,so he was a heretic,blasphemer,he started to develop a following,so he had to be disposed of. he was just a man who saw the evil in the world and tried to create a way to change it,by writing books about "A GOD" AND after he was murdered by the Romans,his followers picked up the story where he left off,that is why it took 400 yrs to complete the greatest story ever told. when someone dies,religious people say god called him home, a few weeks ago two teenagers tried to rob a lady pushing her baby in a stroller,one of them shot the baby in the face killing him, did god call that baby home? did he send the teen that fired the shot that killed the baby? he must of,if he calls other people home when they die,so it would have to apply to that poor baby...real nice god you people have.

But, if I remember correctly, aren't you a Gnostic? Forgive me if I am mistaken, but there are many foul people in these last 2000 years putting words in Jesus's mouth that never were uttered.
Yes I am.

You do bring up another exacting point above:

"Forgive me if I am mistaken, but there are many foul people in these last 2000 years putting words in Jesus's mouth that never were uttered."
- How are we to know whom is truthful and whom are not?
- is it wise for men to make religions about the texts they ONLY think are true?
- Why is only a half of Jesus is believed in, because if I were to use your statement and logic above, your portion of Jesus is created as well.

Well there is only one banner, Christ, that is true. And if they did delight in saying they were right all along, then they would not be very good Christians ... and all the more reason to reunite. Too many Catholics are outright heathens. We let Luther take the Church from us, we can take it back.:)
"Well there is only one banner, Christ, that is true."
- opinion
- there is no proof that Jesus rose in bodily form - that would be only belief.
- for something to be true - there must be facts that back up the claim. So far, all you have is circumstantial.

"Too many Catholics are outright heathens."
- only men have claimed other men to be this.
- "God" never stated that a specific religion or belief is heresy and those who practice those beliefs are heathens. You are reaching.

Clay, Anthony, how many converts have you gotten with that tactic?
Probably not many, right? Let's try a different approach.
You need to clean you house before you call others dirty. It is a tragedy that all of Europe has pretty much been lost, on your watch. It is more of a tragedy that more Protestants wanted Rick Santorum than Catholics did, and that the vast majority of Catholics are liberal, unrepentant, abortion-defending, and full of feminist nuns who openly defy the pope.
You want to win over the Protestants? Then be better than them. Clean out your house of heathens. Quit trying not to rock the boat in politics, and start acting like the moral authority that Christ empowered you to be.
Basically, quit being cowards because Martin Luther beat you over the head. Now we need the Medieval Church. We need Thomas Aquinas. We need you to get Medieval again ... and then the Protestants might take notice, and wonder if they are in the right Church or not.
Jesus did not come to bring peace ...
"Now we need the Medieval Church. We need Thomas Aquinas. We need you to get Medieval again ... "

- if you can't beat them - BEAT, BURN AND TORTURE them. Let's get "medieval"??!!

Christianity does divide.

Not so. I've been dealing with the most vile of human beings the Internet has to offer. Just google Yankee Yahoo, and see how many battles have been in over the year. And yes, I did get jaded, and let the world make me a little bitter.
But no more. You have no idea what seeds you might be planting. Maybe you're tactics were better in the beginning, maybe not. But not trying is a sin, and not doing your very best is a sin, and giving up and letting yourself become bitter is a sin.
And I assure, Protestants are listening. I am still one. I am a Baptist, and already I see something stirring in the hearts of both sides. More and more Protestants are speaking well of Catholics, and my own church let a Catholic speak to our whole flock on matters that concern us both. Why am I not Catholic yet? Because my family is not convinced. But we have more young Catholics doing Bible-studies, long overdue, at UNM standing up against the enemy. And we have Catholics coming to Protestant Bible study ... not to try and cause trouble, but learn that we have more in common than we realize.
The seeds have been planted. Now pray like your life depends on it, because it does. The hate and bigotry is nothing what the Saints endured, and not even close to what Our Lord endured. Gather the strength, and redouble your efforts, brother.
Baptist? Is that the best you can be?

You say you believe in all what Jesus taught, but you are Baptist.

I think you are trying to pull a fast one over someone.

If you were to believe in all of what Jesus taught, you would/could not be Baptist.

Please don't mislead others.

My Dads Mother is Ojibway. She didn't have much of a choice. The rest of my ancestors came from Ireland. There were good jobs in MN on the rail road and factories, so they came here. Part of me wishes they were citrus farmers instead, and settled in Florida.

Besides, I show you Biblical references to Catholicism, but you reject it anyway. In fact, you reject anything that is not coming from your mouth on sacred scripture. I can show you writings from the Disciples of the Apostles concerning sacred scripture. They contradict your interpretations, so you reject it.
Good luck with that.

Obviously from the trend of the assessment/judgments of the above post...

all you Roman Catholics have to offer is just more insults.

Your sordid ungodly history means nothing...for from the track record it reveals

it shows no semblance of a Christian Church.

It's history is full of torture murder that occurred over a period of 650 years...CURRENTLY ... child molesters sodomizes and homosexuals AND BEHIND IT ALL IS THE EVIL SPIRIT OF arrogance pride AND

OK, you are just an ignorant Baptist then. The Old Testament was written by Jews and the New Testament was written by Jews with the exception of Luke and Acts which were written by Dr. Luke, a gentile. You need to check your history. The ROMAN CATHOLIC cult or any of it's members did not write one word of the Bible. Not one.
Finally, the word "catholic", small "c" was and is the word for the UNIVERSAL church not the ROMAN CATHOLIC cult. The ROMAN CATHOLIC cult began with Constantine. Ever heard of him?

True Bible-Believing churches existed before the ROMAN CATHOLIC cult. The ROMAN CATHOLIC cult as we know it can trace its beginnings back to (Snipped) The birth of the New Testament church began at Pentecost.
If you have any questions check history.
Check your history.'Roman Catholic' is an invention by Protestant England. Its supposed to be just 'Catholic'.
It ain't our fault they chose to give the Church that Jesus started a different title. Its still the Church.

Your fantasy about Constantine is baseless. You conjured it up to feel better about your unauthoritative teachings on Christianity- a Dan Brown conspiracy scenario on Our Lords Church.

There you have it Clay. The confrinter is not worth spending time. You and others have warned these factious people many times, but they have closed their minds. They have no eyes to see and ears to hear. They offer nothing in rebuttal to the solid arguments. Their faith is in their own ideology and interpretations and skewed history. They are perfect in every way just ask them. No wrong however is too great lest it be a Catholic for which forgiveness does not apply. Scott Hahns story comes to life. G.K. Chesterton and every other convert. At first they fight and struggle to overcome and deny reality. Eventually they can no longer deny the truth. Frint denies any truth other than that which he chooses to believe which is not based in fact, but a desperate attempt to hold on to the erroneous beliefs he has held. It is hard for many to admit what they have been taught and believed their whole life is not based in truth. The Apostles and Martyrs died for telling people what they did not want to hear. Hojo is right. Why not repeat the same thing to them. They do not listen they never have. I don't think a single one of them could actually tell you what you believe and why. They mock the fathers, they mock anything Catholic, yet they will blindly post any piece of tabloid trash and when proven to be a lie prance on to the next one or throw out abuse as if it doesn't exist amongst them. These are wretched people. By OSAS standards all Catholics fit the bill, but they dance around that too. Over and over and over again they have shown their multiple discrepancies of what they believe, but close it out of their minds. It's truly sad to see.
