Great Fire of Rome

According to Tacitus, the population searched for a scapegoat and rumors held Nero responsible.[83] To deflect blame, Nero targeted Christians. He ordered Christians to be thrown to dogs, while others were crucified and burned.[83]

Tacitus described the event:

“Consequently, to get rid of the report, Nero fastened the guilt and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians [or Chrestians[93]] by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judaea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome, where all things hideous and shameful from every part of the world find their centre and become popular.

<quoted text>Well sonny, I have have given verse and chapter to prove what I stated. It's not my fault that when I give the scriptural proof some are too Biblically Illiterate to comprehend those verses. For example,I could give Biblical proof that Adam was NOT Cains father but that proof would be way beyond most of these people's comprehension because of how their minds have been corrupted by preachers and teachers in their past that are just as biblically illiterate as the ones that they are teaching. Now take that the wrong way. I'm not trying to insult anyone but the truth is the truth. Is it my fault that when I give scriptural proof that they cannot comprehend that proof?
Christianity is very much to blame for this; the notion that salvation is free and may be attained by the idlest, the dullest, the stupidest is understandably very popular with persons who may be so described.

"THE hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church has published a teaching document instructing the faithful that some parts of the Bible are not actually true...

... The Catholic bishops of England, Wales and Scotland are warning their five million worshippers, as well as any others drawn to the study of scripture, that they should not expect “total accuracy” from the Bible...

... The document shows how far the Catholic Church has come since the 17th century, when Galileo was condemned as a heretic for flouting a near-universal belief in the divine inspiration of the Bible by advocating the Copernican view of the solar system. Only a century ago, Pope Pius X condemned Modernist Catholic scholars who adapted historical-critical methods of analysing ancient literature to the Bible ...

... They say the Church must offer the gospel in ways “appropriate to changing times, intelligible and attractive to our contemporaries”.

... Such an approach is dangerous, for example, when people of one nation or group see in the Bible a mandate for their own superiority, and even consider themselves permitted by the Bible to use violence against others.”

The Arrogance of Faith, by Forrest G. Wood

To appreciate fully the meanings of scriptural terms and references, one would need to go back beyond the fourth-century Latin Vulgate edition of the Bible prepared by St. Jerome, or the twenty-seven books on the list that Bishop Athanasius of Alexandria compiled in the year 367, which were to become the New Testament, and study not only ancient Greek and Hebrew texts but northwestern Semitic writings, especially Aramaic, and even some of the lesser-known languages of biblical times such as Akkadian and Ugaritic.

Even the believers admit it’s a tricky business, because if you are trying to re-create prot-World, your starting materials are languages which themselves have been reconstructed. There’s no firm ground to stand on, and you are reduced to comparing lists of words you think were part of languages thousands of years old in order to uncover the even more ancient ancestors of those words: and none of the words on the lists you’re starting with are written anywhere, even in the oldest available stone tablets.

There's no violence in debate of Bible text. Most of the violence in history was from Rome due to their empire.

The law on incest was not instituted until Moses.

This had to be to populate the earth. And genetics were stronger back then, since splintered. Although the entire thing seems very unpleasant today. At the time im sure with no other women the outlook was different. There simply was no choice and they wanted to populate the planet, not fool around.

I'm just curious - are you the Thad Bouchelle that attended Grace Lutheran Church? Do you remember Brother BJ? Honestly, I just watched Hyde Park onHudson, and a some character referred to another character ad Lillibet, and I instantly thought of your sister, on which a google search produced nothing. I suppose, if you - or she - wanted to, you could reach me through Facebook, though I rarely check it.

Would the Holy Ghost be the author of confusion? Not a chance.
The Catholic church demands that lives change and that people take on the discipline of doing what's really right. People will fight tooth and nail to prevent that. In light of that, thank God the pope has the courage to tell it like it is.
Thank God for the moral compass, in a world that DEMANDS immorality, of the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church. It may be filled with sinners, but it is, without question, the one true Church.

That's what most of the Biblically Illiterate read and can no further but there is soooooo much that they cannot see. Why is Cain not listed in Adams geneology in neither the OT nor the NT? Now watch some Bible idiot say that it's because Cain slew Abel.

"What were the key events in the life of Jesus Christ?"
Answer: The following are the key events in the life of Christ and the Bible books where each is described:(Part 3)
Last Supper:(Matthew 26:1-29; Mark 14:12-25; Luke 22:7-20; John 13:1-38)– This poignant last meeting with His disciples, whom He loved, begins with an object lesson from Jesus. The disciples had been arguing about who among them was the greatest (Luke 22:24), displaying their distinctly ungodly perspective. Jesus quietly rose and began to wash their feet, a task normally performed by the lowest, most menial slave. By this simple act, He reminded them that His followers are those who serve one another, not those who expect to be served. He went on to explain that unless the Lamb of God cleanses a person’s sin, that person will never be clean:“Unless I wash you, you have no part with me”(John 13:8). During the Last Supper, Jesus also identifies the traitor, Judas, who would betray Him to the authorities and bring about His arrest. It is indicative of the disciples’ weak faith that each of them considered the possibility that he himself might be the traitor. But Jesus confirmed that it was none other than Judas, whom He instructed to leave and do quickly what he had to do. After Judas’ departure, Jesus instituted the New Covenant in His blood, a new command that those who follow Him are to love one another and live by the power of the Holy Spirit. We remember this act each time we enter into the Christian ordinance of communion, celebrating Christ’s body which was broken for us and His blood, which was shed for us.
Arrest at Gethsemane:(Matthew 26:36-56; Mark 14:32-50; Luke 22:39-54; John 18:1-12)– After the Last Supper, Jesus led the disciples to the garden of Gethsemane , where several things took place. Jesus separated Himself from them in order to pray, asking them to watch and pray as well. But several times He returned to find them sleeping, overcome with fatigue and grief at the prospect of losing Him. As Jesus prayed, He asked the Father to remove the cup of wrath He was about to drink when God poured out on Him the punishment for the sins of the world. But, as in all things, Jesus submitted to the will of His Father and began to prepare for His death, strengthened by an angel sent to minister to Him in His last hours. Judas arrived with a multitude and identified Jesus with a kiss, and Jesus was arrested and taken to Caiaphas for the first of a series of mock trials.
Crucifixion and burial:(Matthew 27:27-66; Mark 15:16-47; Luke 23:26-56; John 19:17-42)– The death of Jesus on the cross was the culmination of His ministry on earth. It is the reason He was born as a man—to die for the sins of the world so that those who believe in Him would not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16). After being found innocent of all charges against Him, Jesus was nevertheless handed over to the Romans to be crucified. The events of that day are recorded as including His seven last sayings, the mocking and taunting by the soldiers and the crowd, the casting of lots among the soldiers for His clothing, and three hours of darkness. At the moment Jesus gave up His spirit, there was an earthquake and a resurrection of some of the believers who had died. At that moment, the huge, heavy curtain separating the Holy of Holies from the rest of the temple was torn from top to bottom, signifying that access to God was now open to all who believe in Jesus. The body of Jesus was taken down from the cross, laid in a borrowed tomb, and left until after the Sabbath. When women came to prepare the body for burial, they found the tomb empty. Jesus had risen from the dead in His glorified state and would appear to many to prove that death had no hold over Him.
