Ummm....Herod was a Jew.

What a clergy will usually do is to try and find a "Gap of understanding" and make it look, as if that is enough reason to accept the existence of a god.

For example: they say because there is no clear explanation why humans exist, a god must have made us, and have something special planned.
Or if u look at the beauty and greatness of nature or the complexity of the human body, god must have made it.

This is of course not a reasonable way of thinking.

People used to believe in Thor the God of Sky & thunder until they discovered how lightning came to be, and he was forgotten.
People used to believe in Ceres the Goddess of Agriculture and Good Harvest.
When people found out agriculture is all about timing, weather and nutrition for the crops, they forgot all about Ceres.

Today science can answer just about anything.

But usually religious people lack the understanding of the science behind particular things, and therefore mark it as: not understandable, or to complex for a human being to understand.

In other words, another bad excuse to say, god must have made us all.

Basic education in evolution and natural selection should answer most of these questions for u.
And don’t believe the religious bias people, saying evolution is not true, without even knowing the substance they are talking about.

On the contrary the complexity of those things you have mentioned are indeed evidence of some type of intelligent design.

If I were to ask you to make something out of a pile of blocks... and then simply put a pile of unassembled blocks next to your pile that no one could touch...which pile would probably end up assembled into something?

Yours would of course because you would ... design them ... into something.

How much more complex is the human cell in comparison?
A humanbeing?

See my point?

The prophet Mohammad died in the year 632. It wasn't until 34 years later that Islam was finally starting to be established.

That year was 666.........Coincidence?...You tell me. Your'e the expert.

Yes it is amazing. The OP claims to be a Christian, yet he arbitrarily adds numbers to claim that Jesus is the Devil.

The OP continues to bash Christians and Jews in his threads, but he will not speak a word against Islam, The Koran, or Mohammad.

Yet the OP will not respond to my allegations. He has used the ignore button.......that's special.....

Perhaps he can refute my factual findings by posting another thread full of lies, trickery, and deceit.



MOHAMMAD = 666 = SATAN = FALSE PROPHET = THE BEAST




And talk about adding numbers arbitrarily.......check out this link.

Of course christians are being duped.

If you're running around taking seriously a religion of a bronze-age genital mutilation tribe, you have problems. You have to believe impossibilities such as people rising from the dead, demons causing disease, bushes that speak, etc. etc.


While I would agree that Christians have no real Knowledge of what the Teaching of Jesus was--thanks to the Pharisee, Paul, who turned upside down the Teaching of Jesus on the Doctrine of "resurrection"--one point I have to disagree with you about is the 'impossibility of people raising from the dead'.

This is also what the Sadducees believed: that there would be no physical raising of any dead bodies from the grave; something which the Pharisees believed in.

The problem?

Both the Sadducees and the Pharisees turned against Jesus.

Now, why would the Pharisees have turned against Jesus if he taught the same doctrine of "resurrection" that they taught?

And the answer to that question is quite simple:

He didn't.

Jesus taught the Doctrine of "resurrection" as, instead, a Doctrine of 'Rebirth'--not an impossibility at all; and something that is believed by millions of Buddhists and Hindus; and as was later taught by the Gnostics and the Albigensians in southern France more than a thousand years later (for which tens of thousands of them were exterminated by the Roman church for teaching what Jesus taught about the "resurrection".)

I have started a thread entitled "Resurrection" & 'Rebirth' to discuss the censorship of the Truth about the Doctrine of "resurrection".

Well I don't know about him, but I am muslim, and the difference between the christians and muslims is that we believe in both Jesus AND Muhammad, but they don't believe in Muhammad.
We are in a disadvantage here because often the christians will insult us and Muhammad, like you, claiming he is "the beast", but we cant do that to you, because we are not allowed to insult Jesus.
It is a tenet of faith in Islam to believe in Jesus.

Thus, in this case, it is WE who are upholding the words of Jesus - you throw rocks at us, we throw bread at you ...



And on the beast thingy. The number was actually 616, later it got changed to 666.

Apart from that any biblical scholar will tell you that the writer of the revelation more or less used writing of Daniel, Ezechiel, even Enoch, and recreated a special form of his, while actually writing against the roman empire of that time.

The writer of the revelation firmly believed that the events he was describing were going to be fulfilled in HIS GENERATION.
Never was the intention of the revelation to write about a distant future, or the year 2010, or 2012 or whatever.

It is merely an apocalyptic feature symbolising the wish of the author for God to intervene and save the jewish community who was being oppressed by romans.

Should you not throw some bread at him for defiling the name of Jesus, who he claims is the Beast?........Or is it a tenet of your religion not to challenge fellow Muslims for their defamation of Jesus?

That's what Christians BELIEVE, yes.
But no evidence for it.
It's clear to modern NT scholars that the Gospels were NOT written by anyone who met Jesus.

G.John talks about the expulsion from the synagogues - a ridiculous and obvious anachronims.


The Golden Gospel may have been written down by the students of John or other scribes, I never claimed any of the apostles wrote any of the books other than some of the epistles in the secondary NT.

Rubbish.


Then give me one single example where the writer(s) of the Gospel of John relates to himself in the book. One place. Name one place where he/them use the words I or We.

OK So the early Christians didn't do this? What about the Romans? There aren't many Herodots and Josephuses in history. Most of what we have to rely on is third person narratives made like fables and stories.

No they don't.


Proofs please, since you seem to know the biblical schools better than me and most people I have met. And that's quite a few mind you.

Where exactly in the Qur'an did you read this?
Apparently you have another Qur'an, different from all of us...


I don't read Arabic so all I have to rely on is work made by westerners on the Koranic texts, and of course discourses with friends who have read and studied the Koran. The way I have understood it thusfar is that Jesjuah wasn't the person on the cross, but one of his servants, identified in the Christian Gospel as this Simon of Kyrene.

I may have opened my mouth too wide or too narrowly, for I should perhaps rather have said Islamic tradition. Below is one quote about Jesjuah becoming 120 years old:


“During his last illness, the Holy Prophet (saw) said to his daughter Hazrat Fatima (ra), “Once in every year, Gabriel recited the Quran to me. This year he recited twice. He also told me that every succeeding prophet has lived to half the age of his predecessor. He told me that Jesus, son of Mary, lived to 120 years. Therefore, I think, I may live to about 60 years.” (Mawahib-ud-Duniya by Qastalani, Vol. I, p. 42); (Kanzul Ummal, Vol. VI, p. 120, 160 from Hazrat Fatima (ra)); (Hujjaj al-Kiramah, p. 428); (Hakam)

Any muslim who insults Jesus, e.g. calls him Devil automatically STOPS BEING MUSLIM.

Since to really be muslim, meaning to SUBMIT TO GOD FULLY, you have to:

- Believe there is only ONE God.
- Believe in His Angels.
- Believe in His Books.
- Believe in His Messengers (ALL OF THEM!)
- Believe in the day of Judgement, and
- Believe in God's decree in the universe.

I hope I answered your question.

Peace be with you.

OK, the Great Pyramid was also made around the time of Noah with the tools of that time. It would be "impossible" for us today to make such a building with the given precission and tools avalable for us today. Eat rocks dude.

Excuse me, but I find this observation to be excessively lame on your part.
Let me ask you this: Do you stone women to death in Islam because they commit adultery, or do Muslims kill women because of the fact that you are all emotionally immature men?

Please address this question for me as I am having a hard time trying to understand the murderous nature of your religion.

Why do you consider all non-Muslims as.......The Infidel ?

Why must you MURDER people who do not share your twisted views on the degradation of women?

Why do Muslims act like sick teenagers and treat women like animals, or like chattel?

Why does Sharia Law condemn women to be stoned to death if they were unfortunate enough to have been raped?

Perhaps you should throw the bread at your women, the way that you do at the dinner table when it doesn't quite meet your specific nutritional requirements.....when it tastes like ...t.

Or perhaps you should go down to one of your various public squares and see a woman get 99 lashes......that must really add inches to your dick......

It is obvious that your religion is a gutter religion, and your devotion to the enslavement of women is tantamount to Satanic Ritual.

In my view, your religious organization must be put down with no less vigor than one would use in putting down a rabid dog.

Why Islam can enjoin stoning

By Christopher Howse
Published: 12:01AM GMT 01 Mar 2008

Comment

Sacred mysteries
The stoning of adulterers in Islamic law is not commanded by the Koran. It is found in the collections of the sayings and practice of Mohammad known as the hadith. In Turkey, we learn this week, an attempt is under way to construct a new compilation of hadith, and the question of stoning shows that this may be a life-and-death undertaking.

As for stoning, there was an attempt by the caliph Omar, a companion of Mohammad who ruled only two years after the Prophet's death, to assert that a verse commanding the punishment really belonged in the true version of the Koran. He failed to insert it in the Koran, but there is no doubt about the immovable status of the hadith that hands down stoning from his time.


www.telegraph.co.uk...


Nice try. You respond in typical Muslim fashion.

You dance around the questions......in this case you completely ignore them......and give a half truth as a response while trying to deflect blame away from your brutal treatment of women.

It is obvious that the Caliph Omar wanted young girls, who had rejected the Pedophile Mohammad's affections, and those who would rebuff his own, to be stoned to death.

Shame on you and your religion, and your brutal treatment of the Innocents, and your barbaric murderous rituals.

Don't bother to write back.

It is funny how you Cowards will hit the ignore button when pressed about the deceit that you perpetuate in the name of your religion or your Pedophile Prophet.

So it is the Hadith that hands down stoning till this day.

It is not the Bible that perpetuates stoning. That law was challenged and condemned by Christ....when he said,.....Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.......He changes the laws that are barbaric and even those that are redundant.

You should follow the example of Christ and challenge what you see as unjust. If you can not challenge it in a meaningful manner because you fail to open your eyes to the truth, perhaps you should not respond to this post.

But if you care to repudiate the facts, give a truthful account, and back up your dialog with facts and sources, I'd like to hear it.

Peace be with you.

You don't seem to get the POINT:
YOU claimed John relates to HIMSELF in the 3rd person.
That's YOUR claim.

I'm not saying he used 1st person.
I am saying he is NOT referring to himself at all.
I am saying it's NOTHING to do with John.

G.John refers to Peter in the 3rd person - do you say Peter wrote it and referred to himself in the 3rd person? Of course not.

G.John refers to Martha in the 3rd person - do you say Martha wrote it and referred to herself in the 3rd person? Of course not.

G.John refers to Lazarus in the 3rd person - do you say Lazarus wrote it and referred to herself in the 3rd person? Of course not.

Get it?

G.John was NOT written by John. He does NOT refer to himself in the 3rd person, or 1st person. G.John was written by some unknown person long long after the alleged events had not actually happened.

Wrong.
It is simply incorrect to say most of our ancient sources refer to themselves in the 3rd person.

That is NOT the same as having "third person narratives". Did you think no-one would notice your attempt to switch the subject?

YOU claimed John referred to himself in the 3rd person.
That is NOT correct.

It's just a bizarre Christian claim that allows them to pretend it was written by an eye-witness. Christians are DESPERATE to believe in eye-witnesses to Jesus, even though there are none.

It's YOUR claim.
YOU failed to provide proofs.
YOUR claim failed.
Sure you can find "biblical scholars" who agree with you - FAITHFUL BELIEVERS who faithfully believe the same faithful beliefs as you.

But REAL actual modern NT scholars agree otherwise - G.John was NOT written by ANYONE who ever met Jesus.

The idea that you can identify a books author by the fact the author is NOT name is pure fantasy. This bizarre argument is NEVER made by real historians - the ONLY time it EVER comes up is Christian apologetics.
