Thanks for the article, great info. Yes, Kay is a liar. It's simply amazing that a holy roller like her has no problem lying about Mary just in order to advance her cause. There has got to be some kind of mindset in her fundie community that approves of lying as long as it's directed at the Catholic Church.

**********

Amusing, Anthony. You lie like Pinocchio, then accuse me of lying, though the proof is against you. I read my information in the Koran.

Unlike a certain group that we know of, our 'community' does not believe that it is OK to lie if it (seems to) serves our group well.

"We are all sons of the living Father."
Denying it is only showing that you deny and don't believe what Jesus said.
(3) Jesus says:
(1) "If those who lead you say to you:‘Look, the kingdom is in the sky!’
then the birds of the sky will precede you.
(2) If they say to you:‘It is in the sea,’ then the fishes will precede you.
(3) Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and outside of you."
(4) "When you come to know yourselves, then you will be known,
and you will realize that you are the children of the living Father.
(5) But if you do not come to know yourselves, then you exist in poverty, and you are poverty."

Jesus said ...One must be born....(figuratively to regenerate:- bear, beget, be born, bring forth, conceive, be delivered of, gender, make, spring of the Spirit (be regenerated) to become a Son.

Joh 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

To be a Son One must receive Christ...Jesus is the one that gives us power to be sons of God...

Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Joh 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Rom_8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN BORN OF THE SPIRIT ...YOU CANNOT BE LED OF THE SPIRIT...

Rom_8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

Rom_8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

MARY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MY BEING FORGIVEN..

SHE IS NOT MY HIGH PRIEST.... JESUS IS.

THE BIBLE SAYS

1Jn_1:9 If we confess our sins, he/JESUS is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1Ti_2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

jESUS IS THE WORD MADE FLESH...

Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Heb 4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but

--->all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him/JESUS with whom we have to do. <--

Heb 4:14 --> Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. <--

Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Heb 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

What more is there needed to prove than what is in GoThomas - all of Jesus sayings?
Are you saying this text is not inspired? Why?
Do you have something from "God" that says otherwise? If you do, please provide it, or will you be like the Catholics - and just fall back on the men of 325 CE in Nicea?
You ain't got shite Seban - so be honest about it and admit it.
All scripture is inspired and I believe through the Holy Spirit it has been preserved for us. There are no contradictions within it.

Now, unless I am mistaken, you have already hinted that something recorded by Paul in scripture contradicts something of which you have knowledge in "GoThomas". If so, therein would lie a BIG problem. If there is in fact contradiction between two texts one is not inspired. God is not the author of confusion.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THE SCRIPTURES that says that Mary ..(the mother of Jesus ...has any part in God's plan of redemption )...other than the fact that SHE WAS THE VIRGIN, THAT BIRTH HIM...THAT WAS HIS EARTHLY MOTHER..OTHER WISE SHE IS NOT MENTIONED NOR INCLUDED IN GOD'S PLAN OF REDEMPTION..

I CHALLENGE ANY ONE TO GIVE A SCRIPTURE THAT PROVES ME WRONG...

-->BEYOND THE VERSE IN ACTS 1:14 MARY (the Mother of Jesus) IS NOT MENTIONED ..in the scriptures.

Act 1:13 And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James.

Act 1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and---> Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren/BROTHERS.

THERE IS NOTHING

How come the church of Christ doesn't have the gospel of Thomas or gospel of Mary Magdalin in their canon? They both were Apostles of Jesus Christ. There is definitely evidence of some Christian sects (gnostics) using those books very early on.

There's only ONE true church where you can go and get saved, and only one, that's the Church of Christ. The Catholic church is the #1 biggest deceiver of mankind. The Church of Christ was founded on the day of Pentecost on 33 A.D.. The Catholic church came about by a few bad seeds of the CoC who decided to please Rome instead of God, and so you have the Catholic church which came into exsistence in the third century. The way you know which church is of the bible is from the bible. The bible doesn't practice infant baptizing, having a pope, statues, praying to Mary and a slew of other false doctrines. To please God is to worship him his way and no other way, which the Church of Christ does. We do not have musical instruments in worship because it's not authorized, we have singing as God has commanded. We have the Lord's supper every Sunday when we come together to take of the Lord's supper and to give and sing. This is what God has commanded, nothing else. I urge you to go to the nearest Church of Christ and get right with God by being baptized and start your life with God, and continue unto death. Again there is no other church in this world where you can go and get saved, none.
Mt 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

You first change a common noun "church" into a proper noun "Church"...so, you are guilty of changing Scripture to support your erroneous teaching.

The Greek word for church is "ekklesia" and is defined as:a calling out, i.e.(concretely) a popular meeting, especially a religious congregation (Jewish synagogue, or Christian community of members on earth or saints in heaven or both):--assembly, church.

The word "church" does not define any Christian denominations...

Quote: For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Yes - ALL SCRIPTURE!! Not just the ones you think are or are not.

Are you always this clueless, especially when the words are right in front of you?

BTW - do you have a citation from "God" that states only certain texts are "God inspired"?

You lie, if you say you do.

Oh yes there is - we've already gone over the Levitical "laws" that you say "are God inspired" and pertinent to the world.

I say they are not, because of their content is not valid in the 21st C. Therefore, are no longer "inspired".

Unless you do beleive the inspiration in the "law" that states a man can rape a virgin girl, and then give her father 50 pieces of money for her hand.

Do you condone rape? Do you condone selling your daughter?

Seeee? These are no longer valid, but they are in the Bible you hold so dearly. In other words, you lied, because this contradicts the moral of society today.

If this is your mentality, then you failed again. I never hintred at such nonsense, but you will add your own thoughts (Self) to my posts, just to appease your own mind.

Yet once again, "Why do you think "Paul" is more enlightened than Jesus?"
- nothing to hint towards "Paul" contradicts Jesus.
- nothing to suggest "Paul" contradicting Jesus.
- BUT....only a question that when posed to an individual on this forum, has been avoided, diverted from, and just plain not answered, because uninformed individuals, like yourself, think the question contains contradiction. It only shows how hypocritical you are towards Jesus, but not towards the men you adore and worship for giving you the Bible.

Live with the fact that you only believe in the Jesus that men gave you, and not the true Jesus.

When you can come to this astonishment, the dismay will pass rather quickly.

If "All scripture is inspired by God", then they are just as valid.

You should believe everything you read or see.

This site dates it earlier than GoMark.

But why even argue this point with you, you are so biased in your religion, without researching it fully first, you really don't know the details, and will just go on teh stories that other people tell you.

I was hoping for a response in your own words.
The internet I filled with essays of propaganda by self proclaimed authorities on scripture. They slice and dice their way through the Bible until they arrive at the religion they want.
