Somewhere,St. John the Evangelist, states that Jesus is the Son of God. His gospel was written in year 95(a.d)., with the help of St. Mary Magdalene.
Now, I said his gospel was “written” it was spoke from the day of Pentecost.
I am so happy for this st. John, but who exactly was he other
than a name attributed to a disciple and your believing that he in fact wrote that gospel? My very educated guess as to how fake he is, is far better
than your indoctrinated and parroted notion on whom he might be. For example, let us take your 95ACE. Jesus supposedly started preaching at aged 30,
unless he was in the habit of procuring mere boys into his army, John would be at least 20. By the year 95, John was 95 years old. Hardly likely for
a)a human 2,000 years ago, and most definitely unlikely that a 95 year old would: b) have infallible recollection of events much less sayings; c)have
any wits about him to think much less write. In case you missed it in several of my other posts, Clement claims this same John attests to Jesus having
lived into his fifties. Why did you avoid Clement?
The Virgin Mary, in her letter to St. Ignatius, calls him the Son of God.
So what? That is found throughout the Bible for all likes of
St. Ignatius, wrote a letter for men such as yourself. He calls him, the Son of God.
St. Ignatius is the little child, mentioned in this Gospel. He was the first Bishop of Antioch.
First, there is no virgin; secondly there is
no legitimate letter; third, Ignatius has no such corroborated letter, fourth. “Ignatius” was a disciple of disciples of Clement as well as of
Theophilius (I will let you hunt up the info on him), where ‘Ignatius’ was Syrian, had no clue who Jesus was other than what he was told(trace
Onesimus and you will find this); was born too late (unless of course you wish to believe Clement’s 50ish story) to be the child bounced on Jesus’
lap or one of those he blessed.
Can I use Mary Shelly to prove Frankenstein existed?
What you did not provide in:
THE EPISTLE OF IGNATIUS TO THE EPHESIANS:
CHAP. VII.--BEWARE OF FALSE TEACHERS. Yours deleted replaced with:
and I wish that the Father of Jesus Christ may comfort him in turn(the distinction)
I am not yet perfected in Jesus Christ. Indeed, I am now but being initiated into discipleship,
Surely, Jesus Christ, our inseparable life, for His part is the mind of the Father, just as the bishops, though appointed throughout the vast, wide
earth, represent for their part the mind of Jesus Christ.(the distinction. care to say the bishops are God also?)
you may with one voice through Jesus Christ sing a song to the Father.(the distinction)
do I count you happy who are as closely knit to him as the Church is to Jesus Christ, and as Jesus Christ is to the Father!(the distinction)
The Lord permitted myrrh to be poured on His head(really? Where? Lord or God?)
The fact is, our God Jesus Christ was conceived by Mary according to God's dispensation of the seed of David, it is true, but also of the Holy
Spirit.(The distinction. Only one way for this to happen through a descendant of David. Was god such?)
God was making His appearance in human form to mold the newness of eternal life!(Oh the heresy of which is later condemned)
His Son--who, being His
Facts these are, real and established by Jesus Christ, our hope. May God grant that none of you may relinquish it! (the distinction)
Submit to the bishop and to each other's rights, just as did Jesus Christ in the flesh to the Father (The distinction)
Need I continue that Ignatius knew nothing of Jesus being God?
