And Jesus's "brother" texts are absurd, don't bother citing them.
I am a little confused on the question. Are you wanting to know why God would allow there to be no original autographs and only copied manuscripts? I just want to make sure I am understanding your question correctly.

I would definitely consider that a valid question that every Christian must honestly ask themselves.

I know several people who have left religion because these kind of questions were asked. Be careful with your soul.
So far, there is nothing being asked that I have not heard here on TTA or I have asked myself. Thank you for the warning.

Why does God seem totally incompetent, if you need it laid on the line.

No orginal "autographs"? Did Jesus sign that spear or something?

The "copied manuscripts" are copies of any first hand statement from Jesus.

They really don't get paid that much from the school. Some dont get paid at all. They make bank from the books they write and force their students to buy. Pensions depend on the university.

I suppose you will get "sophisticated" version of free will crap or other such nonsense. Religious people - not all of them I suppose - to this day can't bring themselves to admit that Epicurus owned them with his famous quote:

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Okay, for real: Would you flunk a student who studied this material and came to a different conclusion than you do?
Depends on the school. Some seminary schools are denomination specific and tell you what to believe. I have found most Reformed seminaries to fall in this category. The seminary I attend is open to all denominations. It is traditionally a Baptist seminary but there were Lutherans, Presbyterians, Anglicans, and Pentecostals in my class which made for very "colorful" discussions. The professors are more concerned about why you believe something and if you can justify your conclusions.

"Autograph" is the technical term in hermeneutics for the original copy. "Manuscripts" are copies of the autograph. I will relay the question.

Its a simple, yet great question imho. It became most apparent during the Nye/Ham debate, that its important to find out if you are wasting your time or not. Nye did as it turned out at the end of the event, when Ham admitted that nothing would change his mind.

It is useless to try to talk to somebody about anything, when this person a priori states he/she wouldnt change his/her mind. Discussion is not a war to win, it is (supposed to be) a two way/bidirectional process. When discussing something with another person you need to be prepared to revise your own point of view. If one person only has an emitter and no receiver, its useless to try to communicate. I even would go as far as to claim its kind of intellectually dishonest to go into a discussion with the goal of convincing anybobdy else of anything you say, while claiming you wont change your mind at all in the first place. Expecting more from others than from yourself in this case is not a fair and honest position imho.

When they teach hermeneutics, is there a unit on Herman Munster ?
