You can start here.<quoted text>
I don't recall Jesus teaching that all texts are "God inspired".
Can you cite this teaching, please?
(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."
But if one actually digs deep into all texts - you will find that Jesus nor "God" specifically states which texts are viable for learning.
Men chose the ones you use.
Don't go there Dan, as I answer questions posed to me all the time, but usually only when those people answer my questions to them. Your argument is bologna.<quoted text>
And for the last time, as you seem hidebound not to respond, I'll ask again how your use of the Gospel of Thomas somehow transcends my use of the canonical Gospels to the extent that you aren't "believing men".
"I'll ask again how your use of the Gospel of Thomas somehow transcends my use of the canonical Gospels to the extent that you aren't "believing men"."
- Correct. Just because something is written, doesn't make it true or false, it is up to us to research the information thoroughly, in order to have the best information available.
As far as I can tell, you've accepted what other men wrote as "true", without doing the research in order to understand why they were written to begin with.
Shoot - you aren't anyone to tell anyone what or what not to believe, but will promote your version continuously. All the while not believing in Jesus yourself.
You'll have to do better - by explaining to me why anyone should even believe you, especially since you don't believe Jesus.
