Matt. 25-31-46 doesn't have a get out of jail free card for bigots, homophobes or those who use Jesus and God as weapons against their brothers and sisters.
DNF, I'm no homophobe, yet, I don't agree with that lifestyle. Also, I would not exclude you from the economy of salvation(imho).

All sin, and will continue to sin. 1 John 1:8-10/Ecclesiastes 7:20. None of us, are greater than the other, all created in the image of God. Though not all are God's children(See John 1:12), all are created in His image.

Snipped for space and slander
Well your first four take place before Rome legalized Christianity. This proves that your theory of Constantine infiltrating the Church and making it corrupt is false. It happened much sooner by Christians and not Pagan Rome.
The rest of your timeline is filled with misguided propaganda that you undoubtedly downloaded from some anti Catholic website. Its a classic case of how the Church holds a council because some heretics are preaching a false gospel. Then, after the Church clarifies the teachings in question, people like you turn around and stab them in the back- telling everyone "see, the CC just invented another teaching".
That's why I'm Catholic. You guys are pathetic excuses for Christians. Deception is the only thing that fuels your theology.
Now, for your timeline:
1903 AD Charles Parham picks up a Bible; reads the Book of Acts; and decides to launch a revival based on the passage about Pentecost. He figured he could channel the Holy Spirit and speak in tongues. Revivals expanded as unsuspecting people fell for the gibberish that everyone was mumbling.
Around 1950 AD: Confrint reads the Bible and declares himself an authority on Holy Scriptures.

I must have missed that post, as I skip by many of your posts and many other posts that I don't find of interest.
I have no medical experience. But just as do you, I read the opinions of physicians.
Only physicians that are religious would use the terminology that suits you.
Correct terminology is that children are not fetuses and neither are babies fetuses.
You only attach importance to fetuses in humans because you believe your supposed god has an investment IN the fetuses.
Since I left religion, I no longer believe that a god exists to give a rat's ass whether fetuses in humans become babies any more than if fetuses in monkeys become baby-monkeys.
Religion is BUNK and that includes YOUR specialty.

**********
The old folks used to say, "you've got too much book larnin'."
The kids of those days were told that they were smarter than their parents, because the parents had less years in public school. The kids didn't respect their parents, because they thought that 'they'(the kids) were smarter than them. LOL My father had a fourth grade education, but he was one of the smartest men alive.(That was when schools taught readin', writin', and 'rithmetic', instead of politics.)

Here you are revealing the fact that our 'hearts' know things that our heads do not. Current view is that a woman only carries a 'blob of tissue'(fetus), which miraculously becomes a baby when the air hits it.

You subconsciously refuted that, by admitting that what a woman carries is a human baby. And what a monkey carries is a monkey baby.

You told Gif the truth about three posts back, when you said that without his Bible, he would have nothing. You see, the Bible teaches the difference between truth and 'book larnin'.

Your books have taught you the foolishness of men. Better get yourself a Bible, and learn the difference.

I would rater be a pathetic excuse for a Christian ..STANDING BEFORE GOD

( AT LEAST I AM A CHRISTIAN) than be a Roman Catholic that has attempted

to replace GOD'S WORD AND

INVENT THEIR OWN...WRITEN THEIR OWN ROAD MAP... TO HEAVEN

THE BIBLE SAYS..

1Pe 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

1Pe 4:18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

<quoted text>Kersey Graves and The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors (2003)
Richard Carrier
[Editor's note: This is a conflation of three responses which were made by Richard Carrier to feedback and e-mail involving questions about the scholarhip of Kersey Graves, in particular, and about scholarship, in general, in the subject area about which Graves concerned himself in The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors.]
The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors: Or Christianity Before Christ is unreliable, but no comprehensive critique exists. Most scholars immediately recognize many of his findings as unsupported and dismiss Graves as useless. After all, a scholar who rarely cites a source isn't useful to have as a reference even if he is right. For examples of specific problems, however, see Hare Jesus: Christianity's Hindu Heritage, and some generally poor but not always incorrect Christian rebuttals. A very helpful discussion of related methodological problems by renowned scholar Bruce Metzger is also well worth reading ("Methodology in the Study of the Mystery Religions and Early Christianity" 2002). In general, even when the evidence is real, it often only appears many years after Christianity began, and thus might be evidence of diffusion in the other direction. Another typical problem is that Graves draws far too much from what often amounts to rather vague evidence. In general, there are ten kinds of problems that crop up in Graves' work here and there:
Graves often does not distinguish his opinions and theories from what his sources and evidence actually state.
Graves often omits important sources and evidence.
Graves often mistreats in a biased or anachronistic way the sources he does use.
Graves occasionally relies on suspect sources.
Graves does little or no source analysis or formal textual criticism.
Graves' work is totally uninformed by modern social history (a field that did not begin to be formally pursued until after World War II, i.e., after Graves died).
Graves' conclusions and theories often far exceed what the evidence justifies, and he treats both speculations and sound theories as of equal value.
Graves often ignores important questions of chronology and the actual order of plausible historical influence, and completely disregards the methodological problems this creates.
Graves' work lacks all humility, which is unconscionable given the great uncertainties that surround the sketchy material he had to work with.
Graves' scholarship is obsolete, having been vastly improved upon by new methods, materials, discoveries, and textual criticism in the century since he worked. In fact, almost every historical work written before 1950 is regarded as outdated and untrustworthy by historians today.
All this is not to say Graves didn't have some things right. But you will never be able to tell what he has right from what he has wrong without totally redoing all his research and beyond, which makes him utterly useless to historians as a source.

According to the earlier Jews, there were multiple gods in existence.

Then some of the break-away Jews created the one-god dogma to in turn create the illusion that they were the one-god's chosen few.

Now these mud-running Jews and Christians and Muslims, all want center stage in the RUSH to believe a god favors ONLY them.

Stupid people!

If I were to believe in the existence of one god, it would only be fair of me to believe that all of them existed along with their goddess companions.

I won't favor your image of a god and state that those other images of gods and goddesses were simply illusion and your one god is REAL.

It would take a complete idiot to believe that was based on truth.

This is not 'works' salvation. It is...the Bible says...a JUDGMENT.
It judges between those who SAY they are good, and those who obey the gospel.

The conscience of the born again is troubled by the need of others, and they will 'feed the hungry','cloth the naked', etc.

The ones who do not do this will be judged 'guilty' of a lack of love.
