<quoted text>Your right,no one who knows the society we live in would disagree with you. The truth is we are here only to warn,and to tell people that the Laws of God,although not popular,are against two men and two women copulating and marrying. It is not a matter of whether we want everyone to feel good about God's ways,but that His ways are contrary to the world we live in.and we who follow Him are not popular,but hav
But that does not change our right to not have any part of it.But guess what society around us will not tolerate our dissent,and we are seeing negative reactions by gays toward businesses and whatnot where Christians may take a stand and refuse to even bake a cake for a gay wedding. That is a start isn't it? Although Aq. that society is embracing the gay marriage as legal and proper, the gays are not satisfied with that,as they have in their agenda to force the religious communities by crying "WOLF' to someday promote them as well. Many churches of the larger liberal titles:Presbyterian,Methodist, United Church of Christ and more are performing gay marriages.Gay couples are even going to evangelical churches and asking for the right to become members.The ministers of those churches have to be extremely careful how they respond to such a request.So far we have not seen gay couples openly complain about being refused to join a membership of a n evangelical church.
But it only takes one,and what will be the response of the media? How will society which is bent on pleasing the gays in every way react to the fact that most of the CHURCH will never marry two men and women? Homophobes,will not be tolerated. But the truth is what the world once saw as a dysfunctional lifestyle for centuries,and that which would never be allowed to marry in most nations,and under many systems, is being forced on all by the hypocritical attitude of the world NOW. No one will be given an option,just like abortion is on demand world wide,and those who oppose it are vilified as the worst narrow-minded sorts.
It is the truth that soon what most of us would never agree to would be forced upon us by the so called-liberal all embracing do gooders,that would kill to sustain their rights. It is all about what the world wants,and now it wants to promote same-sex unions through marriage,no one will stand in their way,all will comply! There is no God,who cares what the followers of a CREATOR say,they must be assimilated or die,and that is the future when it comes to the world view of morality and the moral values of religions and whatever.
Just sit back Aquarius and watch,it will unravel right before your eyes,and will you who would insure the right of an owl or some poor creature,speak against those who would take our right to refuse to marry two men,or two women when it violates our conscience? We will see!
And this,May be how the Christians are demonized in the end ...it's,heading that way..

I think most gay people want to live their lives in peace with civil rights, they shop in stores , go to work, are good neighbors....and should never be the targets of hate imo

but as with other groups , there is a whole industry making money and power out of any differences...these,liberal folks,IMO are the least liberal people .....and they will most certainly challenge the churches As they are now challenging businesses who do not want to cater

These,are the type who .won't let Condaleca,a great black woman speak at a college,graduation.....fly thousands,of miles,to some small town to be offended by their TRADITIINAL Nativity scene ....everything is,about victimization..

Well, now you want to slide the bar a tad, eh?
I don't blame you, but let's look at what you actually wrote:
<quoted text>
Indeed, within a short period, there were several noncanonical texts referencing Jesus.
The Gospel of Thomas comes to mind, much of which is believed to have been written in the first century.
And, of course, there is Josephus.
His Testimonium Flavianum is a highly redacted passage, but most experts believe the obviously Christian editing [possibly Eusebius] overlays a genuine passage and consider his separate reference to James' death also to be genuine.
And then there are the Gnostic Gospels, many preserved in the Nag Hammadi library, though perhaps only Thomas originally dates to the first century.
Indeed, Jesus seems to have acquired more print in the first century or two after his death than just about anyone of his generation.
You now correctly emphasize that no texts were written during Jesus' lifetime. This is true. His flock were mostly illiterates. Perhaps he himself was. John and Peter were according to the NT. And most from the laboring class in first century Palestine was.
So it hardly is surprising that, from his lifetime, not "one iota or one tittle" of text survives about him.
Precision matters.
Jewish boys,were required to study scripture at least in Torah school ....John may have been in the Priestly family by his,mother as,he had access to the Sanhedrin meeting...Matthew,was a tax collector...his followers were not all illiterate..Paul was writing to people,who could read and copy and pass,on his,letters to other Churches......no Xeroxed. So did Peter, etc...John Mark may have been his scribe or any other disciple.

The,JEWS COPIED SCRIPTURE .. it was part of their heritage .....

And every written document along with everything Jewish and Roman that was in Jerusalem in AD 70 was destroyed, burned up ...so we have no idea,what was or was not written ..what notes may have been taken or sent before the gospel s,were put down in completion..I know,even Catholics,like to think no one wrote anything...I think it defies belief...but alas,much is gone, destroyed through war and persecution.

AND YET , we have our divinely inspired bible ....thank God

Now you want Hitler to go to Catholic hell, when all he was doing was behaving comparable to the popes.

You are not at all fair.

I suggest if Hitler had been a pope, you wouldn't criticize him for wanting the vile Jews and misbehaving Catholics SLAYED.

It was common Catholic practice for popes to obey the will of the Catholicized God that they taught hated the Jews.

Those popes were horrible beasts. dressed in their pretentious HOLY god-garbs.

The word Catholic (katholikos from katholou -- throughout the whole, i.e., universal) occurs in the Greek classics, e.g., in Aristotle and Polybius, and was freely used by the earlier Christian writers in what we may call its primitive and non-ecclesiastical sense.

...,you are only speculating that everything was burned up.

...Philo the Hellenistic Jewish philosopher who lived from 20 BC to 50 AD wrote many manuscripts about the Jews. He wrote about daily lives of the Jews during this era and not one word did he ever write about a Jesus. Not one word about 12 apostles, not one word about John Baptist, nothing about virgin birth, not one word about crucifixion.

.... Paul one of the first christian writers never mentions miraculous virgin birth, nothing about any miracles, nothing about the crucifixion.

....the only writings about a god/man Jesus are written in the scriptures and there are no original writings of them.

.....everything you believe is based on what someone else told you and the faith you put in them.

.....there is no evidence that the 4 gospels were written by the names associated with them. There are only copies of copies of copies.

.....belief is all any religious person has. Every religion have their beliefs. When a religion says they have absolute truth based on evidence not belief, that might peak my interest. I know that will never happen.

Jesus did not have to become anything in the way of being a Jew or whatever.You know that. He did it for righteousness sake,the fact that the JEWS, first of all because of Abraham's faith, entered into a state of righteousness from Elohim(God). Righteousness is a state of being which connects ones being to God's Holiness of setting one apart from the garbage of this world that is polluted by sin. Jesus knew that John the Baptist was sent by God to herald, the Coming of Jesus,and the simple act of regeneration or baptism is a humbling state.When people are baptized they have to humble themselves before the LORD and others who are witnesses of such.

Jesus humbled Himself before John who was holy unto God,not only because he(John) was the Messenger of God,but that John lived a truly ascetic life before his God,and called many of his people unto repentance.He(John) was not a hypocrite or a fake,but a man who lived every minute for His LORD.Jesus knew these things and even though He was greater than John,He cared for and humbled Himself before His cousin,through baptism. John was acknowledged in a deep way by God because of Jesus coming to him and being baptized of him. Jesus is a Jew by way of Mary His mother.,and He knew no sin.
