Skip the non-Christian texts - I wasn't referring to them. Breathe.....<quoted text>
FYI - It absolutely is NOT hypocritical for a Christian to quote The Bible while ignoring NON-canonical religious texts. But somehow you are trying to make it so.
As for skipping the non-canonical texts like GoThomas, which is only sayings by Jesus, you do disregard them and those are also recorded, so you are still a hypocrite.
You should be quoting Jesus. I'm not 100% sure, but belief in Jesus ("Isa") is required to be Muslim.<quoted text>Again - why would a Christian quote a book such as the Qur'an or Book of Mormon when those books have NOTHING to do with Christianity? Sounds like you didn't actually read what I wrote - at the very least, your logic is, well, non-existent.
Looks like they have met the qualifier as Oxbow designates, "believe in Jesus".
Maybe you should use his teachings. After all, they too were approved by men to use (Islam), which does fir your "recorded" scenario as well.
What exactly is your point, because you keep voiding it out, by proving by your own words it was an invalid statement.
You really don't understand your religion or others, huh? Sounds like you were handed a Bible and then said to, I'll lead you in the Way.
It didn't work, did it?
Then don't say you believe in Jesus, when clearly you don't believe in ALL of Jesus.<quoted text>
My post had nothing to do with Christians believing NON-canonical texts, but you seem to want to make it so. Therefore, I shall respond in kind and assign one arbitrary *strike* to you, too - as if keeping score using sports metaphor has anything to do with this.
Oh, I'm keeping "score", you can count on that. FYI - I will call you out on your false assertions, just so that you don't lead others astray from gaining, this thing we refer to as "salvation".
If you want to insult me - please do it through viable and supportive information, because "what comes out of your mouth" will surely be what I will agree to or disagree.
I truly hope you aren't thin-skinned.
No I didn't read those posts you say you expressed this "belief" in. Do you have the post number, because I will go look for it and read it.<quoted text>NO. I do NOT use only NT (more accurately called Greek Scripture). If you have read my posts you would see that - so asking your question is of no real or practical significance. Furthermore, quoting non-canonical texts to support Christianity, would be ... un-Christian ... kind o' like what Catholics do when they quote the
Man, throwing out the beliefs of men, again? Where does "God" say that any non-canonical text with Christian origins is "un-Christian" to quote?
Why do you follow those men who have specifically described the belief that you believe?
IMO - you should have researched it before joining up and thinking it is all true.
BTW - that would be Self.
Move past the words and understand their meanings.
