The Woman’s Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred objects … by Barbara G. Walker.

Symbolism is a slippery subject. Symbols now associated with orthodox religions originally evolved from very different contexts in the prepatriarchal past, like the crescent moon of intensely male-oriented Islam, which descended from the female-oriented worship of the Moon Mother in archaic Arabia.

My guess is ... "within the theology" ... Jesus was the only Jew on earth that preached other than Judaism. And he did that on ORDERS from ex-Jew Catholics.

Soon after he rose from the dead, his spirit was "caught" on invisible cameras, working in Catholic confessionals.

While the Catholics were busy torturing and murdering the Jews, Jesus was busy forgiving Catholics of their "sins."

Of course it WASN'T a sin to torture or kill the vile Jews that supposedly killed Jesus ... so Jesus never was asked by a Catholic to be forgiven for that ACT. Sarcasm intended.

Another religion salesman.

Let people decide for themselves what they want to believe or not. You sound just like the Jahova Witness that came to my door last week.

Leave people alone and let them decide themselves without being prompted, or making them feel guilty.

In Islam, it is taught that Mohammad was a divine prophet whose teachings will lead the blessed ones to Paradise.

They also indicate that the one god created by the Jews (originally for Jewish use ONLY)... now loves only Muslims.

Just as the theologians taught and teach that Jesus took Judaism off into Christianity ... the Muslims taught and teach that Muhammad took Judaism off into Islam.

You'll see the lies ... but only when you are ready to give up the idea that YOU are special to the god of your own mental creation.

The new testament was compiled by disgruntled ex-Jews.

Think about it!

What will get from reading a book written by disgruntled ex-Jews ... except anti-Semitism???

The Jews that wrote the one-god-dogma were also disgruntled Jews against polytheism ... which was the earlier doctrine of the Jews.

If you study history you will see that each new theologian had a new STRAIN of egoism in his mind.

Muhammad broke with his Jewish supporters because they refused to recognize him as a prophet and adopt Islam. He chose now to emphasize the Arabness of the new religion and has his followers face Mecca when praying instead of Jerusalem. In the end, all the Jews were either banished or executed.

Note in the following that he is a "convert" to Islam ... which I suggest means that his words will not be taken seriously by devout Muslims.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>

M&Uuml;NSTER, Germany -- Muhammad Sven Kalisch, a Muslim convert and Germany's first professor of Islamic theology, fasts during the Muslim holy month, doesn't like to shake hands with Muslim women and has spent years studying Islamic scripture. Islam, he says, guides his life.

So it came as something of a surprise when Prof. Kalisch announced the fruit of his theological research. His conclusion: The Prophet Muhammad probably never existed.

Sorry but the Bible does not say that one has to go to any Church or denomination to be born again..

location of the body does not matter...neither does the position.....

Salvation comes through the position of the Heart..

Act 16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

Act 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

You try to make it seem as though YOUR reference to scripture is "PRESTIGIOUS."

How revealing ... when the whole new testament is based on anti-Semitic slurs against the Jews ... and you refuse to even make ONE comment on THAT issue.

I don't believe my nature IS sinful. I believe that I am whole and worthy just as I am.

If you stop using your nasty scriptures to point outward, and point them at your self ... you will see how silly you have been all along, and that might be the awakening that will take you OUT of religion.

I would agree with you if the Bible was all that the Lord left us with. There are too many problems with your theory that He did. For starters: The Bible isn't one Book, its a collection of Books. Jesus and His Apostles never gave anyone a list of Books, so how could sola scripture be taken seriously? I don't know if not knows this, but the Book of Revelation was the last Book to be included, and it wasn't because people thought it the last one written. Its because nobody thought it wasn't inspired scripture. It took a series of councils to decide on canon of scripture. Luther didn't even think Revelation was scripture.
If sola scripture was the will of the Lord, there would be no dispute. The Apostle would have given us a list. You see, you first need an outside authority to declare the Books Biblical. In fact, that's what happened and that's why we have a Bible.
Working for the lord,

I didn't mean "Nobody" thought Revelation was inspired scripture. Many did. But there were only 26 Books of the NT used for Mass until 419 AD when the Church added it to the official canon. The NT development was for the purpose of reading during Mass. That's what Catholics mean when we say the Christian Bible spawned out of Sacred tradition. Christianity centered around the Mass and Eucharist not a particular list of scriptures. You can't say "the Bible came first, then people read it and formed a Church around the Books". That wouldn't make sense. The Bible is a collection of Books that developed within the already established Church.

States the follower of the anti-Semitic AND anti-Catholic Protestant Martin Luther.

You are SUCH a liar!!!

Martin Luther believed that he was born-again when he started his new religion.

He washed his self clean of Judaism AND Catholicism.

Religion is based on one steaming pile of manure after another.

I wonder if Jesus' "birthdate" should be considered as when he was a Jew faithful to Judaism, or when he became a Catholic faithful to Catholicism???

Dates of myths are VERY important to observe ... you KNOW!!!

If Christians believed that Jesus had been faithful to Judaism ... they would not BE celebrating his birth ... OR bemoaning his death, as he would be perceived by the Christians as just another vile and despicable Jew.

And from my perception ... THAT is the bare-faced TRUTH!

The disgruntled ex-Jews came up with a devious plan that they labeled as DIVINE. A savior came to earth as a Jew ... saw the light that Judaism was based on a lie ... and in his wisdom became a leader of the Catholic religion.

Then the disgruntled ex-Catholic Martin Luther came up with yet another plan that HE claimed was DIVINE ... and in HIS wisdom lead the already brow-beaten Jew (Jesus) by the scruff of his invisible neck into Martin's new religion.

And the followers continued to kill each other over who owned TRUTH.

Stupid ... stupid ... humans.
