And yes, I believe since Christianity began there have been many holocausts against the Jews by the Christians.

LOL!

June - we're all privy to view the life and teachings of Christ and see what the general will of God looks like Incarnate.

did Jesus launch a holocaust on anyone or did He in fact "go about from town to town healing the sick and delivering all who were oppressed with devils"?

It seems it is always man’s proclivity to define the outsider, the stranger, the one who differs from him, as the evil one, and himself on the side of the angels.

Catholic ... "Jesus is on my side."

And so the self-perceived righteous ones keep on and on and on ... praising their own supposed truth, and belittling others as being preachers of the devil's lies.
If truth exists it might be hiding out of harm's way.
Again ... what part of that innate human behavior STILL surprises you dear?
Maybe "He" is on both "sides", and neither "side"wishes to admit it.

Do you sometimes wish as Ingrid Newkirk does? That it would be better for an empty space to be where she is, then for her to have been born into all this suffering?

Everyone's going to die somehow, right? Might as well be from a deadly snake bite. It's probably not anymore painful than any other violent or prolonged death.
The verse these folks chose for their new religion actually reads like this:
[Jesus said to the apostles]
"18 They shall take up serpents; and if they shall drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them: they shall lay their hands upon the sick, and they shall recover."
He didn't actually say the snake would not bite them, did He?
No he did not.
What was meant is that they would have the knowledge and ability(magic) to withstand the toxic invasion. The formula(s) are in the pyramid texts.

Preacher of religion ... "I can't know what God wills for you, but I know that if you don't believe the truth that I preach, nothing good will come to you either now or in the hereafter."

"But if you don't know what God wills for me ... how can you know that what he wills for me will be bad."

People always try to use the situation with the "thief on the cross" to try and justify/prove that baptism isn't necessary.

Satan has planted these lies in the minds of men for centuries.....

Do you not believe that Jesus could forgive sins of men while He was on this earth???

Had Jesus' blood been shed yet to be baptized into the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus???

Lots for you to learn, my friend...

~~~

Jesus defined water Baptism as, necessary to "fulfil all righteousness."

Baptism...defined
to make whelmed (that is, fully wet); used only (in the New Testament) of ceremonial ablution, especially (technically) of the ordinance of Christian baptism:- baptist, baptize, wash.

ablution (ceremonially or Christian):- baptism, washing.

Mat 3:13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

Mat 3:14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

Mat 3:15 And Jesus answering said unto him,

--> Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. <--

Mat 3:16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

Mat 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

The ablution is from the inside out...The washing of the heart...by the blood of Jesus comes first

First the heart ...regeneration.. then the body..water..baptism.

Tit_3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us,

by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

All is all.....yes......

So what sin/sins has an infant/baby committed???

Can an infant/baby be called by the Gospel of Jesus???

Can an infant/baby believe in Jesus Christ???

Can an infant/baby understand what it means to be baptized into the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ???

Can an infant/baby confess???

More importantly, does an infant/baby have to REPENT of their sins???

It is those in religion that preach that eternal bliss is for their selves and eternal suffering is for others.
Point? WHAT point?
You skip from one premise to another in mid sentence.
If your belief, stance, and argument is; "There is no God." , then that's it. Period.
You can not come back in mid sentence and say "and if there happens to be a next life ". It defeats your own "point" such as it is.

AND, here> " I wish all others nothing but the best life has to offer in this life " is one of the biggest lines of crap you have posted. That's bullsh!t and you know it too.

Hello GIF,

The whole WASHING is from the inside......

and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—NOT the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God.

Clear conscience toward God...

There is a lot more to being baptized.....

After the death of Christ and the establishment of His church, all men became subject to the terms of the Great Commission.

The "thief on the cross" was NOT under the terms of the Great Commission.

Again..nothing else,in the scripture points,to any sort of this,thing Imputed to Jesus...at all.
Had He such activity no Jew would have ever followed Him believing Him a Mesiah .what better way to turn off people than to write this slander about a,great miracle ...especially the,Jews,who were being baptized..
As for His death it was foretold and meant to happen .why He came to begin with ...along with His,Word ..
The temple authorities also went after the healed blind man..of course they'd want Lazarus back in the ground.
Let's face for them a Messiah who did NOT cozy up to them would put them out of business.
As,for the Romans...here is a,man who has,the ability to feed thousands,(an army??) And can heal injuries and as a,last straw,raise the dead ...I'm sure the high priest used these,events,as a last straw,to influence Pilate with a,threat to report to Caesar on Jesus's actions .
Well, yes there is. You don't remember the "disciple whom Jesus loved" of John?

Closing your eyes won't change the facts.

Now, as to your point regarding acceptance of the relationship.

We are dealing with a story written outside Palestine by a gentile or Hellenized Jew, not John Mark, son of Mary of Jerusalem.

The text was written anonymously and only later falsely ascribed to that individual.

A Jew from 1st century Palestine is unlikely to have written a text that got the Jewish culture and Palestinian geography wrong.

Jews in the 1st century didn't accepted homosexuality.

True.

But Mark probably wasn't written by a Jew and wasn't an accurate history of Jesus regardless,

It was merely what the author *wanted* Jesus to be.

And pederasty was common practice in most parts of the Roman empire.

The author of pre-canonical Mark was merely plying his culture to the historical Jesus.

Did Jesus actually engage in such behavior?

I would not rely on any version of Mark to answer that question.

Is THAT Satan planting lies in your OWN mind???
