Feel free to worship a small pile of rocks, for all I care. I am just here to convey the facts of the Bible. (Tuesday Aug 18 | post #244)
I really wish this site had an "edit" button. That was supposed to say "... STILL want to pretend..." (Tuesday Aug 18 | post #238)
Seriously????? Paul says to toss out the ETERNAL Covenant, which the God of the Bible said REPEATEDLY was an absolute requirement, and you STILL what to pretend that he isn't a false prophet??? (Tuesday Aug 18 | post #237)
Not in the least. I strongly suspect that I would have a much better chance of being a friend to Jesus if he were still alive than any xian on the planetWhat - going with the ignorance is bliss concept? Not for me, I'll take understanding and rational thought any dayWrong, as usual. I have nothing against ANY of the Sons of God, but I will not worship a false god just to be part of your little club. As far as following the Messiah, by all means once the real Messiah shows up (or IF he ever shows up...) have fun. Follow the Messiah and convert to Judaism if that makes you happy. However, if I can manage to get any xians to stop worshiping the false god Jesus, I would consider my live well spent. (Or at least that portion that I spend on here in these silly discussions.)

Silly child, if you don't do your own homework, you will never learnNo, you don't. If you did actually read it IN context, you would be in full agreement with me. (Monday Aug 17 | post #235)
Rabbi Hillel is said to have told a prospective Gentile convert to Judaism that to love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself was the whole of the Law, everything else is just commentary. An amusing, pithy saying, but people still need to study the whole of the Torah to learn all of the laws and commandments so they may obey them properly. After all, how can you know what to offer as a thanksgiving sacrifice if you don't study the Law? Also, taking Jeremiah IN context clearly shows that the REnewed Covenant will include the requirement to follow ALL of the Law in the Torah, however, the God of the Bible will write that Law within men's heart so that all can follow it without the need to spend years of study. In other words, no one will ever again break a commandment by accident. (Monday Aug 17 | post #234)
Arbitrary. Their claims to have a later revelation are just as valid as Paul's claim to be an apostleAnd Paul fails this test by preaching against the Word of the God of the BibleMultiple wives is very BiblicalBut since Moon was Jesus reincarnated, obviously he proved that Paul was wrongAnd that would be Luke, the devoted follower of Paul who tells us that Paul really really was an apostle, even though Paul totally perverted the message of Jesus? (Monday Aug 17 | post #233)
lol. The usual answer when a xian can't refute an argument against their religion: "You don't have the Super Secret Magic Jesus Decoder Ring, so you can really understand." Unfortunately, there is a point that you are missing. I used to be xian, until I started learning more about what the Bible actually said. You claim that you are here to encourage xians, well I am here to HELP xians by showing them the error of their ways. (Monday Aug 17 | post #225)
a) I have never desired to be Jewish. b) I am not dictating the fact that Paul was a false prophet, the Bible itself does thatSince you are so obviously ignorant of the Bible, here goes: Deuteronomy 4:2 5:29 6:1-3 6:17 6:24-25 7:9 8:1 8:6 8:11 10:12-13 11:1 11:8-9 11:26-28 11:32 12:1 12:32 13:18 15:5 27:26 28:15, 45, 58 29:9 29:14-15, 29 30:8-17 31:9-13 Of course, as is always the case, these should be read IN context to preserve the actual meaning. I will cheerfully admit that some of these verses do not specifically say that the Law must be followed for ever, but the ones that don't still stress the importance of keeping the Law as a requirement of the God of the Bible. (Monday Aug 17 | post #223)
And by that line of "reasoning ", Mohammud was a prophet of God, as was Joseph Smith... and the Rev. Sun Young Moon was Jesus reincarnated. Anyone can claim to be hearing voices and say they are from God. The proof is in their words, do they match with what has come before, or do they contradict earlier revelation? Since the Torah contains many verses instructing the worshipers of the God of the Bible to NEVER add or subtract so much as a single letter it really should be obvious that Paul was a false prophet. It is only the hubris of the "true believer" that keeps everyone from seeing this. (Sunday Aug 16 | post #206)
I never lie. Using only the truth is far too much fun. Okay, that is written in the epistle called 2 Peter, but who actually wrote it? An illiterate fisherman, who even his own master said was dumb as a rock? Or an educated Greek convert to xianity who thought that his own opinions would be noticed far better only if he lied and claimed to be Peter? See, there is a big problem in using forged documents to support you case... if a person will lie about who the real author is, why should anyone trust anything else the said? Of course, the other thing that one must take into consideration is that at the time it was written that all scripture (&c) the ONLY things that were scripture was what is now referred to as the "Old" Testament. (Sunday Aug 16 | post #204)
I find it rather scary to see the number of xians (and muzzies, too) who try and insist that it is only belief in their particular religion that can keep a person moral. That tells me that these people are one crisis of faith away from becoming mass murders, child rapists, or even shoplifters. Are you familiar with Kohlberg's "Stages of Moral Development"? Many xians act at the lowest stages - believe to avoid Hell or believe to get into Heaven - compared to atheists who act morally because it is the right thing to do (the highest stage of moral development).

Not just Paul, some of the other texts in the NT have an anti-Semitic slant to them, such as the gospel of John - written after the Romans destroyed the Temple when the Nazerine Jews felt they no longer had to try and get along with the other sects, but they had to take strong measures to appease their Roman overlords. (Sunday Aug 16 | post #200)
But the epistle to the Romans is nothing more than Paul's opinion on the subject. Since Paul was a false prophet, leading people AWAY from the word of the God of the Bible, it is definitely worse than useless to look to his opinion for anything. In the Bible all sins are defined in the Torah, and no other place. Indeed, Deuteronomy alone has around a dozen different verses to the effect that nothing is to be ADDED, and nothing is to be taken away, from the Law, as written in the Torah.
