Jehovah says ... "Thou shalt have no other gods before me ... OR after me."

I just wrote that version of scripture ... and because it was written and it suited MY theology ... it HAS to be true.

Christian or no Christian ... do you believe that had Jesus lived he would have agreed with YOUR opinions???
So now you contemplate on if he lived? I thought you believe that he was made up?

Now you want to play a game on "ifs".

You sound confused in your disbelief.

Silly child, Luke's author claims to have texts "handed down" about Jesus rather than given to him. That tells us he was not a first generation Christian. In fact, the author likely was a third generation Christian.
His certain reliance on the works of Josephus to create both Luke and Acts tells us his two works come after Josephus' works, one written in the 80's (Jewish War) the other in the 90's (Antiquities of the Jews)-- that's a bottom date range for creation of Luke not for circulation.
Common circulation clearly occurred before 130 AD, since Marcion relies on Luke to create his Gospel of the Lord around that date. And there are subsequent references to GoLuke in a some early Christian writings in the later part of the 2nd century, followed up by a surviving partial copy from the end of the 2nd century.
And it is absolutely amazing that Luke's work would be preserved but the texts, other than Mark, Josephus, and Matthew -- if Luke's author relied on Matthew rather than Q -- would not be, eh?
They weren't preserved because they weren't prized documents, as letters or other texts from any of the Twelve or Jesus' family would have been.

This is just more of the same old anti-catholic lies that you Confrinting are "so famous for"! Read the TRUE FACTS! Only one Catholic was appointed to the Supreme Court and the remainder serving on the court are Protestants........ Your bible only "anti-catholic (hatefilled ministry)" runs "So deep" that you will say, distort and lie about ANYTHING in order to keep the vengeance, animosity and vindictivenes (heated up) against Jesus Christ HIMSELF and His One True Catholic Church....... Hatefilled lies have (fully) "corrupted" your mind, heart, and soul..... Until you come to TRUE SALVATION in Jesus Christ, Satan will "continue" to be your "mouthpiece"....... Condemning and judgmental preachers like you are a "perfect example" as to why I left the bible only half-truth, half-heresy Church I grew up in!...You do NOT speak for God and NEVER will until you TRULY find Jesus Christ in your life!!!

No, what I am saying is that confrInting is so prejudiced in his view, that Catholics are to blame for the ills of society, and that he cannot see his bias.
Similarly judges are biased.
Just as do Catholics blame all others for the ills of society, so do Protestants.

You both are certain you are preaching words aligned to the supposed words of "Jesus" which is very silly, as had Jesus lived, he would not have been preaching Catholicism OR Protestantism. He would have been preaching ONLY Judaism.

How ridiculous you are if you entertain the idea that judges can tell women what they must do in concern with their own choices of whether or not to have abortions.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>

Who Has Abortions?

The Alan Guttmacher Institute is a nonprofit corporation for reproductive health research and policy analysis. The Institute is also a public education arm of Planned Parenthood.
It reports that one in six women who have had abortions are evangelical Christians. Based on these statistics, 5.6 million women in our churches have chosen abortion as a way out of an unwanted pregnancy.

Hey I mean no disrespect to you personally. I'm being totally honest about the Orthodox sites I visit. I try to take a fair look into your faith. I try to learn about it. Its not an easy Church to understand. On one site, the Orthodox will speak out against something being 'against Church teaching'...But in the neighboring country, the Orthodox say the opposite. I found that with contraception.
The little research I did on the belief that it's the new Israel shows that the Orthodox BELIEVE its the NEW Israel. There aren't two Israels from what I understand.
Then I saw your post this morning and i have no idea why you didn't call it what it is.
Same thing with the Eucharist... don't sugar coat it. Its Jesus Christ. It ain't always easy to say when someone may get offended, but politics have no place dictating the truth of the Lords teachings.
==========

Clay,
Please read further by what the Orthodox mean by the "New Israel"
They specifically state that the term " New Israel is misleading because it does not replace the "Old Israel" It is inclusive. The "Old Israel" is included.I cant type the entire post again but I really did explain it in depth.

I believe you think I "candy coated" the issue. That's ok. You were honest and sincere about your feelings. You have a preconception of me. I cant change that .I do apologize for sometimes wrongly taking offense.
==========
Here are a few more sources to reassure you that my original post was valid:

The church is the Israel of God, "nor a new Israel, but the one and only "People of God", Israel in a new Face of history, namely, that of Jesus."

Sources:
1.Jarvel, "God's Faithfulness to the Faithless People," p. 31.
2.Samuel W. Newell Jr., "Many Members: The Relation of the Individual to the People of God," Interpretation, vol. 5 (1951), p. 422.(Between the Old Testament 'people of God' and the New Testament Church there exists a relation of continuity)
==========

3. The Church is the continuation of Israel. We call it the New Israel, not because it no longer includes the Jewish people, but because it now includes ALL people. It goes beyond what it was; it does not replace what was before

Source:Herman Blaydoe, the Orthodox Monachos forum moderator

4. "It’s interesting that in Scripture you have the new covenant (kain&#275; diath&#275;k&#275;, new covenant. You have the new heaven, you have the new earth. You have the kain&#275; ktisis, the new creation. You have the new human. You have the new song. But there’s no new Israel. There’s one Israel of God, and Jesus is the Messiah of Israel, who exists for the sake of the salvation of the whole creation."

Source: The Jewish Question In The Russian Orthodox Church Gregory Benevitch

6. "Regrettably, the Orthodox Church, following the lead of the Roman and Reformation Churches, dismisses the reconstituting of Israel as merely an accident of history. This is the result of “replacement theology” that presumes that the Gentile Church is New Israel, since supposedly it has replaced Old Israel. It presumes that God is finished with the Jews"
