The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors … Christianity before Christ, by Kersey Graves … first published in 1875.

“We find,” says a writer,“in all the theogonies of different countries the hope of the advent of a God (either his first or his second coming)—a hope which sprang from a sense of their own imperfections and sufferings, which naturally induced them to look for a divine Redeemer.”

The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors … Christianity before Christ, by Kersey Graves … first published in 1875.

Chrishna and Buddha are identical in principle; both are incarnations of Vishnu, the second person in the Hindoo Trinity, and were born of virgin mothers, and each was the son of a carpenter; both suffer death by crucifixion. Chrishna raised the dead, by descending for that purpose, to the lowest regions. Both names signify Shepherd and Savior.

More than a few people have posted nonsense by using my name in their avatar.
It's the chance a person take when posting on a forum.
I have never reported anybody since I came on the forum in 2006, and I don't intend to report anybody.
Well that's you. When someone writes a negative remark about our Pope and adds my to to it, u bet I will report them. There's alway a first time, right?

Happy New Year.

Good advice Ant!!!!! Show where I ever pasted/copied and then presented such as me being the originator...and/or signing my log-on name to the material...making it my words...show me...
Just to be clear, I was referring to proof of his or your deity.

Not sure what schoolyard spat this group has invented this time.

When one is defending a delusion, there are no ethics. It doesn't matter that no one can show you where you posted something. Plausibility, not truth is the goal.

""In his latest revelations, Pope Francis said: "Through humility, soul searching, and prayerful contemplation we have gained a new understanding of certain dogmas. The church no longer believes in a literal hell where people suffer. This doctrine is incompatible with the infinite love of God. God is not a judge but a friend and a lover of humanity. God seeks not to condemn but only to embrace. Like the fable of Adam and Eve, we see hell as a literary device. Hell is merely a metaphor for the isolated soul, which like all souls ultimately will be united in love with God.” In a shocking speech that is reverberating across the world, Pope Francis declared that:
“All religions are true, because they are true in the hearts of all those who believe in them. What other kind of truth is there? In the past, the church has been harsh on those it deemed morally wrong or sinful. Today, we no longer judge. Like a loving father, we never condemn our children. Our church is big enough for heterosexuals and homosexuals, for the pro-life and the pro-choice! For conservatives and liberals, even communists are welcome and have joined us. We all love and worship the same God.”

Wow! That turns Christianity on its head!

The Pope confirmed what I have been telling you all for two years!
Is the Pope a lying Satan worshiper like some of you called me ?

POPE JOHN PAUL II REJECTS REALITY OF A LITERAL HELL
During his weekly address to the general audience of 8,500 people at the Vatican on July 28, 1999, Pope John Paul II rejected the reality of a physical, literal hell as a place of eternal fire and torment. Rather, the pope said hell is separation, even in this life, from the joyful communion with God. According to an official Vatican transcript of the pope's speech, Pope John Paul II noted that the Scriptural references to hell and the images portrayed by Scripture are only symbolic and figurative of "the complete frustration and emptiness of life without God. " He added, "Rather than a physical place, hell is the state of those who freely and definitively separate themselves from God, the source of all life and joy." He said hell is "a condition resulting from attitudes and actions which people adopt in this life." Concerning the concept of eternal damnation, the pope said, "Damnation consists precisely in definitive separation from God, freely chosen by the human person, and confirmed with death that seals his choice for ever." The pope also added, "The thought of hell and even less the improper use of biblical images must not create anxiety or despair." Rather, he stated, it is a reminder of the freedom found in Christ.

Ant.....look!!!!!! "According to an official Vatican transcript of the pope's speech, Pope John Paul II noted that the Scriptural references to hell and the images portrayed by Scripture are only symbolic and figurative of "the complete frustration and emptiness of life without God. "

Any other churches are heretic.
The Catholic church didn't start until 313 AD, and the Church of Christ was established in the year 33 AD. The pope didn't come about 600 AD. The Catholic church came from the CoC when some of the CoC enjoyed the attention they were getting from the Roman dignitaries and decided to do what they wanted them to do and that's the beginning of the Catholic church

Not true....the definition of "church" as used in the NT has not the name Catholic nor Church of Christ.....plus...none of the seven churches referred to by Christ in Rev were also not identified as Catholic or Church of Christ....

Regarding Ox, I had to report him b/c on one of his post he changed if to read my name. He got off with a warning . So yes he is a thief and liar. I'll never post to him again. He is one to be ignored.
Now he is exposed. What a jerk.
Happy New Year, Anthony
.....we now know that many roman catholic bishops around the world had lied and deceived all Catholics by covering up the worst sins of all, lying to all Catholics including you star c. To be true to your word, does that mean they too should be ignored? That they too are jerks?

Show us you are not hypocrite

They are still a man made church teaching false doctrine and just because they finally have seen the light on purgatory doesn't change there status as a man made church teaching false doctrine. The only true church is the Church of Christ which is easily seen in the bible as being the church of the bible. In order to be the church spoken of in the bible a church must worship and abide by what the bible says, not add or take away from worship.

What makes the Church of Christ the church of the bible is how they worship and set up the church according to the bible, the Church of Christ does just that. No other church comes even close.

How they worship you say! Doesn't the bible claim that Jesus worshipped on Saturdays his entire life and he learned from, and preached from the Torah.

The name Church of Christ is not in the KJV..Do you have any idea what the definition of "church" is in the NT????
