btw, when a sinner came to Jesus, when did He ever excommunicate them ?
With all due respect, that sinner was not a church leader.

Hilarious, the denialist insanity of god nutters is so pathetic, you'd think if they had any brains they'd accept the verifiable facts.

Jesus never existed, god never existed and nothing in the bibles is true as written, other than the slaughter carried out by god nutters through out history.

Considering the entire god cult is run on lies, elitism, hypocrisy, denial and suppression, it's not rocket science to understand the cult would say one thing and do another. That's the nature of the cult and it's entire history lies deception hypocrisy and so you'd expect this sort of primitive idiocy.

Typical crazed god nutter, all yo have is threats and abuse. It's nice to see you quoting the most violent depraved publication in history, you reflect the true nature of your cult well, violent, threatening deranged and believe in stupid plagiarised mythical fairy tales.

What a pathetic liar you are, all you fools pray for is what you want. You say you'll pray for someone, but the only reason is you think it will make you feel good and boost your deluded ego. Problem is it never happens for you, then again you are all mentally inadequate in believing in such insane bullshit.

You can be sure 99.9% of those who believe this violent load of destructive rubbish, have never ever done a real investigation to see if any of it is true. When you put the real acts to them,, they refuse to listen, deny what it's real and state no matter how much overwhelming evidence is against their insanity, historically and currently, they will still deny it.

Being a part of the most violent gun crazy god nutter christian country, the good ole USA, it's no wonder you're in denial. You countries a basket case of massacres and violence, all revolving round you insane god cult.

Truth and fact are way outside your comprehension ability, aren't they.

He did exist only as a person though, not a spiritual person. Some random Roman soldier had an affair with Mary and she didn't want to tell anyone because of how conservative the society was back then so she said "it was a miracle" and considering how retarded people were in the 14th century they believed her.

I don't know how you prove or disprove that Jesus of Nazareth existed or not. How do you know that Pliny The Elder, Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, Hipparchus, Aristarchus, Galileo, Newton, Copernicus, Thomas Jefferson, or Abraham Lincoln existed ?

the fairytale has been around a bit longer than the 14th century, and we will never know if he did exist or whether somebody just got on the peyote and started writing

Pope Francis isn't truley a Catholic or else he wouldn't support gay marriage. He cares more about his image. He's obviously an Atheist pretending to be a Catholic.
I see your confusion. How could someone who makes some sense also be Catholic? It's unusual but it happens.

Oh Yeah ?? According to Kris Kristofferson, Jesus was a Capricorn, he ate organic food...And in my opinion, Jesus is a myth, just as God is a delusion, and organised religion is a giant scam perpetrated on human society by get rich quick merchants.
