As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

It works, bitches.

A post mortem eternal existence relating to, and akin to, our secular pasts would be very annoying probably, to say the least.

How do we relate to a judge ensconced within any inconceivable milieu.....?

You'll get used to it. The nicknames are often nicknamed around here. Pretty soon you will see a name and read it as the alternate version.

Isn't it a bit fishy, that he never mentions his own brother "rose" from the dead ? If YOU were writing a letter, trying to get someone to believe, and your brother was the ONLY person in human history to rise from the dead, you would forget to mention it ? Of course he completely contradicts Saul of Tarsus, (the founder of Paulianity, the religion you really practice), who says people are saved by faith alone.

Uh...sorry, I'm not sure how to respond. Are you asking something or just making a comment?

Church tradition is what says the author of James is the brother of Jesus (instead of some other James); I would have no problem believing some other Jamers wrote it. In any case, the book is highly practical, almost like a collection of sayings of proverbs. It's not focused on getting people to believe as much as it is on instructing people who already believe. And I'm learning to live with tension between different books. If every New testament author had the exact same theological perspective, we could make it a lot shorter.


On a more practical note, is there some easier way to quote multiple people that I'm missing? Because this is kind of annoying.
