How ARE your indigenous Aboriginal people doing? Full and Equal Citizens yet? Accepted into all society? I gather the forced conversions have stopped sometime back, but ...
Ignorance is bliss for crazed fools like you isn't it, no knowledge outside your simple programming and completely bereft of logical application to life. Typically you can't put up a logical verifiable argument, so childishly resort to what you think is an attack on Aus society, when you don;' have a clue what your talking about or who you're talking to.

As an indigenous Australian, have first hand experience of how your cult treats people, unlike real people who are not violently deranged like god nutters. If it wasn't for the sane Europeans, your priests and nuns would have wiped indigenous people out completely, even though they tried very hard.

We have removed just about every preacher nun and all god nutters from our communities and it is only those incapable of evolving beyond the control of ideologues that suffer from their own hands. No different to any indigenous on the planet and for that matter anyone who hasn't woken up to the futile insanity of your cult.

A few more laughs like that and my day will be made.

Glad to hear that things are going better for you and yours.

We, on the other hand, are still treated poorly.

I agree. There is no use arguing religion with these people. I don't have resentment against them. If they dont believe that is their choice. Think about it- I lived my life in Sin for years, then I re-discovered God. This is somthing you cant tell someone, they have to learn it themselves. If they are saved praise the lord. Believe me many like us want to believe, they are just confused or scarded.

We refer to ourselves (when we do, conversationally) as a "sect", and have gone by many names in the past two millennia; and been called many things by others, usually by detractors and calumnators. lol. Generally we refer to ourselves as followers of the Way, but usually as Fred, or Tim, or Mike. Classification is easier by referring to what we are not. Ideologically we are ante-Nicene, ante-Irenaean, ante-Cappadocian, ante-Alexandrian and ante-Sauline.(note: "antE" not "antI")

What you are not, is sane. The state of the earth is witness to the debaucheries of crazed god nutters and their never ending war against sanity, logic and caring reason.

Your ego's are so childishly deranged you think o nothig but youire insanity ansd how to impress others as tp how deranged youy are. Let's hope the planet gets rid of you and your ilk fast, before your insane debauchery makes the planet unliveable.

From your reply, it's clear my post is spot on. Only deranged ideological morons look backwards, they have no idea of forward thinking and you represent that inadequacy well.

You won't understand this, but perfection in nature and the universe is the art of change, which is eons outside your primitive thought patterns and way beyond your comprehension ability. Idelogical humans live in denial of change and cling desperately to fantasy land thinking, so let my congratulate you for exressing your infantile inadequacy so well. A brain dead dumbo for sure, take a bow dummy.

You cannot prove that he never existed. You only claim it because you hate him, i.e., your biased hatred is not proof.

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.
A minimum of guns in the UK and Oz doesn't appear to keep your fellow citizens from killing each other.

It's man's nature to be combative and vengeful, what with being made of flesh and blood and nerves. You can't breed it out of the beast, it'll always be there, lurking in the deepest part of our minds. The id is with us always, some of us just deal with it better than others.

For a very long time, Jesus has always been portrayed as a carpenter. But I read something a year or two ago that argued something differently, which I believe is a much better argument than the carpenter theory.
Firstly, the Greek word traditionally translated into modern English as "carpenter" is actually more accurately translated as "builder" (Hence the "Joseph & Jesus General Contractors, Co., Inc. Call NAzareth-1-6666 "From outdoor suburban patios to pyramids we do it ALL ! WHOLESALE TOT HE PUBLIC !").
And since people use things similes and analogies with which they are most familiar with, AND the fact that Jesus often spoke about rock and stone (He called the disciple "Cephas", "Peter", which is Greek for "rock". He was calling him "Rocky" because apparently he was a TOUGH guy.), a much better argument is made I think that Jesus was in fact a mason, and not a carpenter.
I find this argument convincing.
And btw, when "strong drink" is mentioned in the bible, the writer is almost certainly talking about beer, because what we call "strong drink" nowadays, i.e. "hard liquor" such as whisky, vodka, rum, etc., did not exist at the time. These liquors are made by the process of distillation (i.e. using a "still"), and the distillation of alcohol was not invented until the Middle Ages in about the 12 century CE.
A carpenter is a builder.

Per capita there are far less murders in Aus than there are in the U.S.- and that is partly due to there being far less gun ownership per capita of population.

btw, when a sinner came to Jesus, when did He ever excommunicate them ?
I have a theory, It said in their book, "that thought shalt not worship false idols". Well if you look at the turn out of people to look at the pope,it is obvious that the reason for this saying was to stop people getting a big head and assuming that they are a Demi god.
So if a god like status develops, you can make up a new set of rules to play by. Isn't religion good.

Dumbo, the first thing you have to establish is whether your god exists, without that proof, all your claims fall apart. Then you have to provide verifiable scientifically accepted evidence which supports you stance on all your claims.

The facts are, there is nothing to support any of your claims with regard to god jesus or any messiahs or other fanciful delusionary stupidities. Of course we know the despot Mohammad existed, many societies have recorded his atrocities.

Evidence of your jesus exists nowhere, except within your falsified and plagiarized NT, written hundreds of years later. All the claims of the christian church are false, as are the claims of Judaisms and islam. The supposed jews had no written language before 300BCE, their first torah was written in the 6th century. Have a god day useless wanker
