Nazarene Christians?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_the_Na...
The Church of the Nazarene is an evangelical Christian denomination that emerged from the 19th-century Holiness movement in North America. With its members colloquially referred to as Nazarenes, it is the largest Wesleyan-holiness denomination in the world?
The first "Christians" were called Nazarenes and Galilaeans, that group which you mentioned is a knock-off----more edomite mis-information.

P.S

And then the Edomites hi-jacked the religion, combined it with paganism and created easter and Christmas, and the rest is history( Idolatry, total abandonment of the law, etc., etc.)

More garbage....and it does not change the truth per the Sacred Infallible Word of God:
Mt 3:6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.
Mr 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Ac 18:8 And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.
Infants cannot:
A.Confess their sins.
B.Cannot believe.
C.Cannot believe on the Lord.
Sorry, but the NIV is NOT the infallible word of God. It's a recreation of a religious text to satisfy a political agenda.

The Catholics were created in the fourth century under a Hexagram religion. Look at the Catholics, robes, books, building, stained-glass windows the Hexagram is everywhere.
Don't let their words fool you like the Mormons redefining words to deceive.
The key to Catholics is the Inquisition: murder and more murder. The Eucharist is purely Satanic.
The circumcision of the heart and baptism by fire is when and where one becomes saved. The follow-up by an act of obedience to Jesus ordinance is Baptism by full immersion.
Baptism represent: buried with Jesus and arise back in a new life to walk with Him. Baptism is representative of the grave; pouring and/or sprinkling is not the meaning or the practice. Baptist are 300 yrs older than the organization of CAtholic.
They are Antichrist; which can be proven easily. In the NT the Apostle John (1JN 2:18) spoke of them and you can trace them to Egypt and then on to Rome. Look at the Nicoliatans: the Opus Dei are the same bunch - Jesus said, "But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
Rev 2:6 (KJV)" So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
Rev 2:15 (KJV) Don't be deceived by words of the Catholics; their Hexagram and the words of STUR are their indicators to let you know who they are in reality. The number value of both STUR and the Hexagram is 666. They have admitted to killing tens of millions of Baptist.
Do you draw your "knowledge" from this blogger?

I don't think so. The Nazarenes and Galilaeans were people from the cities of Nazarene and Galilea.

if paul was a "ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes" [Acts 24:5] and Paul was not from nazareth or nazarene as you put it then perhaps you are incorrect about your assumption.
the "sect of the nazarenes" had nothing to do with being from nazareth but rather everything with being a follower of Christ who being from nazareth and therefore he was called a "nazarene". that was different from the "sect of the nazarenes" as made evident by paul being accused of being the leader.

Here's a short article explaining the term "nazarene". It's written by "A skeptic's guide to Christianity"--not the greatest source--but gives a good, brief explanation none-the-less,

By the way, here's an interesting paragraph from the article:
"
Initially, the Nazarenes were never considered heretical by the Pharisees. In fact they were so zealous for the law of Moses that the Nazarenes (or Jerusalem "Christians") were considered an ultra-pious group of Jews.[12] As the early Church Father, Hegesippus, relates, James was famous for his strict observance of the Jewish law and for undertaking vows which are normally taken only by the most devout Pharisee.[13] As James, Peter and, presumably, many of their followers knew the earthly Jesus, it is hard to imagine that these actions would be contrary to Jesus' teachings. It was more likely that they were doing what Jesus, when he was alive, commanded them to do. In fact these original apostles of Jesus, headed by James and Peter, never accepted Paul as a true apostle. The uneasy relationship forged after the Jerusalem council was broken off at Antioch and was never mended. Despite Paul's attempts to bribe his way back with an offering of cash collection from his Gentile congregations, James and his church never accepted Paul back into the fold."

Naturally, as a "christ is G-d" Topix user, you're gonna disagree for the sake of disagreeing...however this really isn't up for debate, it's a fact: the earliest Christians we're called "nazarenes", they obeyed most of the law, and didn't worship Yeshuah Bin Yusef as G-d.

I'm sorry that the truth doesn't fit into the story that you believe.

Baptist were first called Christians at Antioch. Easy to trace Baptist to the Apostles even in the encyclopedia Britannica. Baptism was their practice.

One must have the circumcision of the heart and baptism by fire to be a born again Child of God.

Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
Col 3:11 (KJV)

For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
Romans 2:28-29 (KJV)

You saying something is a fact does not make it so. I agree one group of early Christian's were known as Nazarenes, everything else you said is all speculation.

Lol, so then you deny that the first followers of Yeshuah--all of them jews--kept the law and didn't worship him as G-d?

That's hilarious.
