What Your Church Won't Tell You by Dave and Gary Higgins

QUOTE who="His Flock"]<qu oted text> Of ALL the people that are banned or posts removed, the most degusting and foul vermin that posts from Baltimore is allowed. I know not another that use this language for years from the same isp that gets away with it. Perhaps we should all report his anal and pornographic posts. Really good people are removed for nothing yet this this bottom-feeder remains. Time to change things so they do not continue to remain the same indefinitely.

What Your Church Won't Tell You by Dave and Gary Higgins

A word about Topix. BLL responded to a post from me. I replied a couple hours ago with two posts: One about Peter and one regarding John. Neither was abusive or in appropriate, unless you consider calling someone goofy inappropriate. One post, the first post, #34916, was deleted. But worse than being deleted, for me it appears as if it is there, at least when I am logged in. Only when I returned before re-logging in did I become aware that Topix had 1. suppressed my first post regarding Peter and 2. made it appear to me it was there when logged in. That really stinks. Here is an image of that post as it appears when I am logged in: http://s1057.photo bucket.com/user/Ch ess-Jurist/media/C hessPost.png.html It can be enlarged and read just fine. How do you spell sewer rats?  (Saturday Apr 12 | post #34918)

Prove there's a god.

In '08, a regular poster on these threads announced she had cancer. She continued posting for a few months. Then we got notice apparently from someone close to her that she had passed. I forget if that was a direct post or an email to another poster who then posted the notice. Some doubted she had passed. But we never heard form her again. And no one with her wit, very sharp mind and distinct style ever graced these threads again. RIP WiP: http://www.topix.c om/forum/topstorie s/TGTPH905E9IF6B2O 7  (Saturday Apr 12 | post #715037)

Well, it's according to me, goofy. And, yes, 150 years after. Oh, it's also according to the two oldest surviving copies of the text attributed to John, which date to around the end of the second century. (Yes, there is the Ryland's Fragment that dates to about 125 AD. But it's merely the size of two or three postage stamps.) Those two earliest copies did not have that pericope. And Tertullian's copy around the same time apparently didn't have chapter 21, since he refers to the end of chapter 20 as the end of the text. And of course the nature of the two chapters indicates that both were intended to be the ending, the original and the added ending. These *facts* demonstrate that the text falsely attributed to John was in truth written by multiple writers over about a century. A community of writers, not a single individual. And given the finely honed, well crafted primary text, such material does not come from a scribe jotting down an illiterate's musings and then translating them into another language. Even if you want to believe the text is loosely based on such musings that became oral traditions and then were crafted into a masterful literary piece in another language at a much later date, as faithful critical scholars such as Raymond Brown do (or did in his case, since he's dead), you end up with questionable traditions that were highly embellished and then modified to craft a skillful narrative that was even later edited and appended. John is not the work of *the* John. It is a work of a community over a long time that may or may not have identified with *the* John. Sorry for your loss. Again.  (Saturday Apr 12 | post #34917)
