RE: Jesuss
I'm not sure why the thread is called "Jesuss" with two s's. It made me think about the idea that there are several "Jesuses".

1. There's the Jesus of the NT, born in a manger, of a virgin, visited by Magi, Kings, etc. Knocks over tables in the Temple. Goes off somewhere, comes back and is baptised, becomes a Rabbi, preaches, heals, feeds the poor, is cruified. This version is not literally true...

2. There is the Islamic Jesus who was not crucified, but escaped by some means, and was, it seems from the Koran, a warrior, as the Koran says he will return on a horse to slay the false messiah at the gates of Lydda, (birthplace of St. George). Who this is is anybodies' guess but Muslims don't either accept he was a messiah/son of god or follow the preachings of Jesus 1 as set out in the NT. Hmmmm....

3. Thomas Christians revere the apostle Thomas. According to history, Thomas Christians departed Assyria in search of their "Christ" who they believed had gone to India. Interestingly, there is a story about Thomas travelling to India with Mary. Mary dies on the way and he ends up in Srinigar. There is a tomb there with, so the locals say, the body of Christ in it and casts of his feet showing crucifixion marks, although they look like Yeti feet.

4. Cool Jesus. This is a relatively modern re-invention of Jesus, which Sam Harris subscribes to. Cool Jesus is a hippy-type who preaches a kind of Buddhism, has some followers, bucks authority, feeds the poor, likes kids and for all of this, inexplicably gets himself such a bad rap that he is tried by either or both, or neither, of the Jews or the Romans and is then, perhaps accidentally, crucified. This view of Jesus has inspired many to hunt for another character in the Near East who might have been Jesus, for instance, Appolonius, or the Teacher of Rightheousness...

5. Revisionist Jesus. This Jesus is Izates Manu Abgarus, Syrian King Monobazus I, who is the son of Queen Helena. He converts to Judaism, like his mum, leads a bit of a revolt in the mid-70's and is defeated by Titus Flavius and either crucified or taken off by Josephus to Alsexandria where Vespasian is legitimised as Roman Emperor by Izates and Izates is exiled to Chester, England, where he becomes the basis for the story of King Arthur.

6. Caesar's Messiah- This Jesus is a form of identity theft in which the Romans write up the New Testament making Titus Flavius into a travelling Jewish Rabbi who is comically crucified and resurrected. This Jesus is actually Titus Flavius and the story is intended to support the elevation of his dad, Vespasian, to Emperor, thus creating the Flavian dynasty.

7. The Horus Myth of Jesus. This Jesus is a purely fictional character in the rewriting of the Egyptian myth of Horus, a bit like Hamlet.

Ironically keepy posted (under the same name) on City-Data's Religion & Spirituality forum some time ago. A helpful mod corrected the spelling, but more recently he posted a new thread with the same wrong spelling and I guess they said, screw it, and left it that time. It's the same impenetrable word salad over there. I have him on ignore in both places. It's no loss at all.

I just assumed "Jesuss" was an imitation of the affected pronunciation (Jee-suss) that some pentecostal / sawdust trail radio and TV preachers use. But with this guy it could simply be that he can't be bothered to spell even his god-man's name correctly. I neither know nor care.

It's certainly tedious but is it disruptive?

Proselytising is ignorable isn't it?

Unsure

Yes, but isn't posting nothing but Bible verses considered spamming the forum?

I agree it's not disruptive, but it is a waste of space and bandwidth (if bandwidth is even a concern).

It would be spam if it was the same verse or if it started to spread to non-contaminated threads.

To me, there seems to be an attempt to connect to us; to use each verse in a way that may have some form of relevance. It's like an alien species trying to communicate to us in their language.

Of course, it's incomprehensible to us humans and this is probably very frustrating for this alien life-form.

Who knows, there may be a Nobel Prize in it for whoever can crack the code.

I've just read a book named "Filth" by Irvine Welsh, which features all sorts of depraved lunacy, but one in particular is the main characters love for being choked when having sex. He calls it, "turning off the gas", which his inner monologue says as "Hey darlin, let me turn off your gassssssss", to recreate a gas type noise. I'm now associating "Jesussss" with this, and it's getting weird.

Think he just loves him some jessussssss Laugh out load

I'm not claiming any originality here (I think someone else already suggested this), but maybe he's Gollum?
