If that is true, then ...

Luk 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.

Hey guys my cat tells me that she coughed up a hairball and that's where you all live now, and she says that if you think i'm crazy or a liar then I should wear that with pride.

(of course my cat is smarter than that, so I clearly understood her sarcasm, I just thought I'd share with you all)

John 14

22 Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, “But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?”23 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.25 “All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name,will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubledand do not be afraid.

This is from historical paul talking to a gentile church.

1 Corinthians 15

3 For what I received I passed on to youas of first importance[a]: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,4 that he was buried, that he was raisedon the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas,[b] and then to the Twelve. 6 After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, 8 and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.

Why do you keep quoting this fictional storybook?

Iliad, book 1: Sing, O goddess, the anger of Achilles son of Peleus, that brought countless ills upon the Achaeans. Many a brave soul did it send hurrying down to Hades, and many a hero did it yield a prey to dogs and vultures, for so were the counsels of Jove fulfilled from the day on which the son of Atreus, king of men, and great Achilles, first fell out with one another.

See.. I can quote from old books of mythology too. They aren't history, they are fables.

I feel like he keeps quoting bible verses.... yet.... we're the only one's here that have EVER read them....

Hey SV can you please demonstrate you understand what it is you keep quoting at us? We're far more interested in your thoughts, not your quotes. Please stand on your own two feet and speak for yourself.

I don't think he's ever actually thought about any of it. He has simply accepted the crap he's been spoonfed for years without question and has no original thoughts of his own. Assuming he's not a poe, of course. It's hard to believe that anybody could be that credulous but time and again it turns out to be the case.

Yeah, Smilin' Jack, the problem is, that since it's inception, it was the unique thing about Christianity, that the COMMUNITY was the arbiter of whether or not, what someone said, was their experience of what their faith was all about matched what the community's experience was, and was the "authenticator". In being a heretic, you put yourself in opposition to that fundamental Christian value, and method.

“For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves” (Acts 20:29-30).

You are what they were talking about.

Wrong. That translation is wrong.
It does not say "he appeared". It said "he was made evident for the benefit of" as in "they came to understand" ... he said he was "exalted", not "raised from the dead".

Being hated gives you no actual benefits, hecrow, unless you just want an excuse to pat yourself on the back.

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?
