Wacky theology

Jesus deserved to be nailed to a cross and hung out to dry.

He came to earth to betray the god of the Jews, and in turn betray the Jews that the god swore were his chosen few.

Jesus is now a filthy traitor sucking up to Catholics and Protestants ... while the Jews are left with no love whatsoever from Jesus.

However ... at least the REAL GOD in the Abrahamic religion Jehovah is still faithful to ONLY the Jews, and THAT is a "blessing" for the Jews.

The Christians deserve the traitor Jesus, as the Christians were and are also traitors to Judaism.

Not to offend people but the whole Jesus story makes no common sense.

The crucifixion, only described in the bible, no where else in our history is there a mention of this act. The story was that a man became a rebel within his own religious belief that he loved so much. Bible says he worshipped in the temple regularily.

.... The jews/romans at the time were known as peaceful people and to crucify someone it would have to be for an extremely heinous crime and if they did crucify him for committing such a terrible crime is that how the new religion was to start by the leader committing terrible crimes against others in the religion you belonged to?

No different than today. If you don't follow the rules or laws of the land you will be persecuted.

as the story goes. A baby born claimed to be the son of God. Born into a religion THAT DOES NOT BELIEVE IN SONS OF GOD, yet this family of Jesus practices this monotheistic system that does not believe in them..........and did this for 33 long years.

....makes no common sense.

....Cutting through all the baloney, if there is a God wouldn't it have been much easier to just appear to everyone in our world the exact same way, and if you still didn't believe let the chips fall where they may. He could do this if he was God.

....that nonsense of standing at the top of a mountain talking to the world doesn't make scientific common sense. Because the world is a sphere everyone knows the farthest one can see is about 80 miles., yet we know there were people living all over the planet.

I suggest that Jehovah's Witnesses are the only Christians that still have favor with Jehovah. After all, even THOUGH they claim they are Christians, they, with PRIDE use his real name.

And just as occurs with the Jews, Jehovah's Witnesses don't recognize Jesus as their savior.

I suggest that has to account for at least relative faithfulness TO Jehovah.

Was there a man named Yeshua who tripped around Judea like a street person with a dozen merrymen? Quite possibly.

Was he the son of God? For many centuries before there have been many claimed to have been God or sons of God or even Goddesses.

I admit that I AM here to offend people. I've never pretended otherwise.

I'm respectful of people in my community who go to church, but on the forum it is an entirely different matter.

If they don't agree with what I post, they can debate from their perspectives, or they can leave and go back to church where they find their COMFORTS with those of like-mind.

I'm not here to mollycoddle anybody.

If a creator exists, it enjoys observing the suffering of all forms of life. Otherwise it would have created a plan that didn't involve suffering.

It's as simple as that.

Religion is bunk!

Who's test? Who was the authority to determine the authenticity of those chapters? Don't say the Jews because if your going with their canon, then you need to remove the 27 NT books. Btw, the Ethiopian Jews still have the missing
7 books ..You can't ignore that.
Clay,

What were the Jews responsible for?????

Romans 3:2

2 Much in every way! First of all, the Jews have been entrusted with the very words of God.

... WHAT? Today I am talking about God speaking to you. your personal revelation you call it.
PS.... The only personal reasons I discuss that topic is to make people more aware that there are a lot of bad people out there that shouldn't be trusted. The people you won't even mention. Where was God when all this was going on? Answer that.
God never spoke to me in a audible voice, so I have no idea what you are talking about.

If a man named Jesus existed, he would have been a wanna-be leader of a new cult. "Only through ME can you be saved." NO Jews allowed as I new detest Judaism being preached as truth anywhere on earth!!!"

Stupid stuff in deed.

I'm pretty sure they have a life outside of topix. Today I'm going to mass at 2 pm to see the newest successor to the Apostles get ordained. Bishop Andrew Cuzzins.. I'll say a heartfelt prayer for you. How does that sound?

Junk theology

Jesus ... "Anyone henceforth caught preaching Judaism will be put to death by the truth-telling Catholics. I want people of earth to know where I stand on this issue. I might have been raised as a Jew faithful to Judaism, and I might have preached Judaism ... but the Catholics showed me the REAL truth, and so now I hate Judaism AND the Jews."

Michael says......Millions of people claim they communicate verbally all the time to the Lord. Why is God not communicating with you? Not enough holiness?
....See! all those negative comments towards Michael keep you from having a fire side chat with God.
- I don't give judgies nor can I see them from my phone.

- I don't need God to verbally communicate with me. Besides, I'm not worthy of it anyway.

Jews at one time were polytheists, believing in many gods.

Do you believe in many gods, and if not, WHY not??? After all ... that dogma came first and foremost BEFORE the one-god dogma of the monotheistic Jews???

And I suggest you will ignore this post to carry on with your usual sermons.

Myths and Myth-Makers Old Tales And Superstitions By Comparative Mythology John Fiske

According to the ancient Jew, the sky was a solid plate, hammered out by the gods, and spread over the earth in order to keep up the ocean overhead: but the plate was full of little windows, which were opened whenever it became necessary to let the rain come through.

Keep in mind that this theology was compiled by Jewish theologians. They "created" Abram to disbelieve his father who was a polytheist and thus Abram created the one-god dogma of the Jews.

That is how easy it was for male theologians to change the stories from one track to another track and claim that the new track was nothing but the truth.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>

At that time, the Mesopotamians were still highly polytheistic, worshiping idols. Abram was the son of Terach, an idol merchant, but from his early childhood, Abram questioned the faith of his father and sought "the truth". Abram came to believe that the entire universe was the work of a single creator, and he began to teach this belief to others.
