What a silly story.

Had Jesus lived, he would have been murdered because the Jews knew he was a traitor to Judaism, and from their perception would have had every reason to drive nails into his hands.

I suggest he would have been pleading with the Jews ... "WAIT ... don't kill me for preaching a foreign religion. I've learned my lesson and from now on I'll be a good Jew, faithful to Judaism."

I don't believe in, or celebrate Christmas, and I don't even believe in the god created by the Jews, much less your warmed-over version of a god.

To me, Christmas is simply another day of the year, no more special than April Fools day which has been dubbed as Atheist's Day.

The Roman Catholic church not the small "c" catholic (universal) church which is Christianity and serves Jesus Christ not a pope (vicar). Correct?
Small c used because it has no significant to me what so ever, in other words I have no respect for the catholic church. There's no such position authorized by God, again no respect or recognition do I give to the word pope or vicar. Catholics are not Christians, as they are lost, the catholic church is nothing more than a man made church with doctrine of pagans. The bible speaks nothing of the catholic church, can't you see that? The NT says nothing of Peter going to Rome so there goes your chances for a pope using Peter, besides Peter wouldn't degrade himself with a doctrine of pagans.

It works BOTH ways.

You both believe that Jesus is your servant who mops up Christian sins and waits for you in Christian heaven.

I suggest you stop with your histrionics.
Your Christian brothers and sisters didn't exist in 313 AD, because you live NOW.
Any Christians that lived in the early centuries were break-away Jews, anxious to vilify, torture and murder faithful Jews as Christ-killers. They were nothing of which to be proud.
WRONG, Christians came to be in the year 33 AD on the day of Pentecost, Acts 2 37-38, 313 AD is when the catholics came into existence, and their not Christians. The Church of Christ is the first church that came into existence in 33 AD. The church that the bible speaks of is the Church of Christ, the church of the bible.

Theology en masse!

Jesus ... "I don't know how it happened Dad. I was minding my business in a temple preaching Judaism, and before I knew what hit me I was in the river Jordon being baptized into the Catholic faith by a Catholic they told me was a saint named John."

God ... "That's okay son ... Catholic theologians with their pens also converted me to Catholicism and removed my previous name of Jehovah."

Ooops! Sorry, Anthony, I gave her a few *very* secular sources.
But, really, this isn't anything new, as you well know.

I guess I just don't like the games that are being played. Thought this was interesting:

"When 200 homeless people were received to dinner at the Vatican, some of the purveyors of odious comparisons were publicly in awe of Francis’ humility and charity. They had perhaps been too busy to notice that he was merely repeating a gesture his two immediate predecessors had made before him. Or not quite. In 2010, Benedict XVI received 250 homeless people to lunch, and passed in person at every table before sitting down at one of them to take his meal with his guests. Francis sent a cardinal to represent him. Let us not make odious comparisons in our turn, but the narrative of the humble new broom who is sweeping away the “Renaissance court” of the immediate past needs to be exposed as the manipulation it is."

Your choice of lies from history is different than mine.

Ignatius was Catholic and he was the first one to mention the word "Christian."
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>

An important milestone into development of Christian self-consciousness or Christian self-identity will be the emergence of the word "Christianity." This word appears for the first time in the writings of a church thinker of the early 2nd century of our era named Ignatius, who lived in Western Asia Minor, modern day Western Turkey

I suggest that the Jews who gave their last slice of bread away knew they were dying anyway, and wanted Jehovah to see them as good humans rather than being selfish.
Those Jews all tried their best to keep living as long as possible.
You and I don't give OUR last slices of bread to the poor. You know it and I know it ... so I suggest you be real and don't play the HOLY GAME with me.

June,
You really should not attack unless you are knowledgeable about the area.

The quote you refer to is from Victor Frankl's book "Search for Meaning". He is a psychiatrist who developed logotherapy, a therapy based on man's need for meaning in his life.Frankl’s book, Man's Search for Meaning, had been translated into 24 languages and reprinted 73 times.

You stated "the Jews who gave their last slice of bread away knew they were dying anyway. In fact Frankl found the opposite. Those that had done so were more likely to survive because they had found meaning in the horrible circumstances.

Frankl discovered that people were more likely to survive if they had something to live for, if
they could just find something that gave their life meaning.

Frankl's thesis is that it is not suffering that destroys us but our attitude toward our suffering.

Logotherapy has been helping people since the 1930's.There are Logotherapy Institutes throughout the world.

The Catholic Church is the Kingdom of God on earth, the new Israel (Jesus said in Matthew 21:43 that he was taking the Kingdom away from Israel, and giving it to a nation that will produce the fruits of it - namely, the Catholic Church), and is modeled after David's Kingdom, with a huge temple (the Vatican), a prime minister (our Pope), a sacred tabernacle containing the Ark of the Covenant (our tabernacle containing the Eucharist), officers who take care of the kingdom (our Cardinals and bishops), high priests (our priests), a Passover Meal (our Eucharist), and a Queen Mother (The Blessed Virgin Mary).
