This is a strange answer.



Do you deny its truth?



Not at all!
It's Truth!


Who was Jesus speaking to when that is said? Where was he when He said it?

These weren't blanket statements to all of humanity they were to those who were coming into belief of Himself.

He was teaching on the nature of the Father towards those that believed.

Why do you believe these were just blanket statements without context?

And again, how is any of this a different Gospel then that which was taught by Paul. Paul is pretty direct in saying which Gospel he preaches. And it's not one he made up.

1 Corinthians 15 1-8

"1Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast [a]the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.

3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 6 After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; 7 then He appeared to [c]James, then to all the apostles; 8 and last of all, as [d]to one untimely born, He appeared to me also. "

Respectfully, how again is the Gospel different?
I don't want to be in error, so if I'm wrong I'd like to be corrected.

You are the one who are trying to assert the existence of Jesus. Can't I dispute that? You brought up North Korea.

I never asserted the existence of Jesus. More lies.

If the Bible stories are "spiritual analogies", what is the spiritual analogy of the genealogy?


Begots and begats are not stories. Being born of a virgin, in a stable, while on the road is a story.

Ok let's say that he existed. Then what?


He didn't live long enough, or he would have renounced his Christian ideas.


But he knew the outcome.

Jesus was a "scapegoat". Was he not?

You are the one who brought up the North Korea trinity. And knowing you form your post and I've read your recent posts Jesus existed the same way.

Like I said, if Jesus existed then what? So what? Because he existed and people witness his powers, he has superpowers? Doesit mean that Lil' Kimmy Boy has powers?

I'm not doubting that. Can stories be based on reality?

Blanket statement?



After this manner therefore pray ye:
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.



Matthew 6:14
For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.


No crucifixion needed!

Many stories and scriptures are based on reality. Not sure I understand your point.
