I appreciate such a well thought out post that addressed the op so deeply.

Oh, wait.


You're expecting depth on a post pondering whether or not Jesus was really the first century equivalent Priscilla Queen of the Dessert?

OK.

It's a fair cop.

Still... I don't think Lola was a hymn.

Maybe it was one of the ones that were omitted?

Those cheeky gnostics... wouldn't be surprised.

Jesus was a socialist. Very much so.

Funny because to become one of his disciples they had to sell off everything they owned and then divide amongst each other. Sounds very socialist to me.

Ask yourself, what bathroom would Jesus use?


already gone over that.

Answer: Unisex latrine.


Well here I am on page 10. How the hell am I supposed to know that?


Read the thread from page 1?

Become a psychic?

Guess?

There's three options for you

There a paintings and stories of people cross-dressing, so transgender is quite likely as well.

This is the most absurd thread that I have ever seen drag on for 12 pages on any website, ever.
Got some free time OP? Go better yourself instead of trolling. Perhaps a book? A quick workout?
Your logic is outrageous. It's obvious you don't believe in Jesus. But your options are: a) he was a woman because of the virgin birth. Or b) he was a man, no virgin birth?
So God can (and I believe He did) use his unlimited power to impregnate the Virgin Mary, but He can't use that same power to make Jesus a male via implanting the Y chromosome?

Just be thankful you're speaking the way about Jesus here--at least for now. Christians like me will just shake their heads at you.

I've seen worse.

Yeah. Just like everyone else who posts here.

Do you don't agree with the thread then?


Your logic is outrageous. It's obvious you don't believe in Jesus.
The premise of the thread is that Jesus exists. Whether or not I believe he/she was real has no bearing on the topic.


But your options are: a) he was a woman because of the virgin birth. Or b) he was a man, no virgin birth?
Pretty much.



So God can (and I believe He did) use his unlimited power to impregnate the Virgin Mary, but He can't use that same power to make Jesus a male via implanting the Y chromosome?
That's certainly an option, but I don't think it's possible.


Just be thankful you're speaking the way about Jesus here--at least for now.
Christians like me will just shake their heads at you.
So you're taking offence? You do know that nobody forced you to click on the thread, read it and reply to it. That was your own choice. Maybe you were curious?

Jesus had to be trans....He was trans-truth. One minute the Bible says that the languages were confused at the Tower of Babel, and God created many languages from a people who spoke one.

And yet if you go back a few chapters before the Bible says that one of the early Bible fathers descendents spoke more than one language.....BEFORE the Tower of Babel story.

And yet the Bible says that the Bible is the inerrant word of God. And yet theres hundreds of inconsistencies.

Maybe, but the topic is transgender, not trans anything else.

Thanks though.

People have free time and post things, sure, but this is a blatant troll thread.
God has no gender. He is not trans. He is not male, female, or agender. He certainly has masculine and feminine "qualities" by our cultural standards, but he is not masculine or feminine. No qualities pre exist to define him. God IS love. Any qualities he has are prescribed to him by us as a way to explain the mystery of him. I use the pronouns He and His because those are a) biblical and b) traditional.

Jesus was born a man. For you to say "you don't think it is possible for God to add the Y chromosomes in" is absolutely absurd. We're talking about a virgin birth to begin here--that is not "possible" by any standard other than God's omnipotence. Your inconsistencies give away the true beliefs and intentions of this thread.

As to why He was born a man? I would assume it has somewhat to do with the patriarchal world Jesus was born into, and the oppression of women that has persisted around the world. God is wise. Maintaining the free will of human beings, having Jesus be born a man was the best way to ensure that people's ignorance and biases would not discriminate against the son of God as they would a "daughter of God."
The message of Jesus and the end game--salvation and eternal life with him--is much bigger than anything of this world.

I'm not offended. I'm just not buying into your facade, and pointing out that the anti-Christians out there like yourself would never do this sort of thing to the figurehead of another religion...
Trust me, besides the moments I spend typing this on my phone, I give no mind to you or this thread.

If you think so you can report it.



God has no gender. He is not trans. He is not male, female, or agender. He certainly has masculine and feminine "qualities" by our cultural standards, but he is not masculine or feminine. No qualities pre exist to define him.
Which means the only source of DNA would be from Mary's XX chromosomes. Therefore, Jesus was a she.



God IS love. Any qualities he has are prescribed to him by us as a way to explain the mystery of him. I use the pronouns He and His because those are a) biblical and b) traditional.
But people lie. Just because it's written in a book saying he, doesn't mean it is a he.


Jesus was born a man.
With only XX chromosomes? That would be a she.


For you to say "you don't think it is possible for God to add the Y chromosomes in" is absolutely absurd.
And it's not absurd to think that God added a Y chromosome when he could have just let it be and create Jesus as a she?


We're talking about a virgin birth to begin here--that is not "possible" by any standard other than God's omnipotence. Your inconsistencies give away the true beliefs and intentions of this thread.
Which inconsistencies would they be?


As to why He was born a man?
Or a she.


I would assume it has somewhat to do with the patriarchal world Jesus was born into, and the oppression of women that has persisted around the world.
Or was born as a she, hidden as a he as a test?


God is wise.
That's debatable.


Maintaining the free will of human beings, having Jesus be born a man was the best way to ensure that people's ignorance and biases would not discriminate against the son of God as they would a "daughter of God."
Another reason to hide Jesus being a she.


The message of Jesus and the end game--salvation and eternal life with him--is much bigger than anything of this world.
I don't see how that is relevant.


I'm not offended. I'm just not buying into your facade, and pointing out that the anti-Christians out there like yourself would never do this sort of thing to the figurehead of another religion...
No facade and not anti Christian. If it was anti Christian then I would not refer to Jesus or God.


Trust me, besides the moments I spend typing this on my phone, I give no mind to you or this thread.
Yet you spent all that effort coming here and typed all that?

I have a friend who wants to be an archaeologist.

This one time he went to, uh...Bethlehem, for a holiday. While randomly digging a section of dirt by a small tree he found some ancient texts or scriptures in a strange language that he said gave detailed accounts of the life of Christ, both post and pre-op.

We always thought he just made it up since we were all about 15 at the time and drunk, but not I'm beginning to wonder.

He said that before the op, Christ had long hair, a beard, wore a dress and sandals. And apparently, post-op...had long hair, a beard, wore sandals and a dress.

Seems legit to me. Good job I'm not a christian or I'd be terribly upset.

So Jesus was a post-op? I didn't know that.

Meany.

Wondering is good. If we didn't wonder then threads like this wouldn't exist.

Does he know if it was a real beard or a stick on one?


And apparently, post-op...had long hair, a beard, wore sandals and a dress.
Same question as above.

Why? It wouldn't make any difference in religion of Jesus was male or female.

But of course it would because god is a male. Remember. God created Adam first and Eve was nothing more than his helpmate.

Don't forget Paul makes it clear that women are to remain silent in church and other scriptures state the man is the head of the household.
