Jesus is the son of God. If people would live by what he said(the words in red, in The Bible) and not what others said about him the world would be at peace. He's not like Muslims; who say to kill those who won't convert. He says that if you don't want what he offers then so be it. True Christians do not believe in violence of any kind. For country or family or anything on this earth. Jesus said: I send you out as lambs among wolves. No protection, no defense. His answer for what should we do was: Be as innocent as doves and as wise as serpents. All we have is our wits. Jesus is not a lie or a swindle. The real question is: Are you going to be a Christian or just another person trying to get by at the expense of your fellow man. Read the New Testament but only the words of Jesus(get a Bible where they are in red) and then tell me what you think.

Oh boy, I predict that a certain member will experience Mod-Problems very soon.
It is a great shame each time a good and interesting discussion between two members devolve into an angry fight with naughty words been thrown around.
Very unnecessary and truly a shame on the destiny of a very interesting debate.

I don't like living among a bunch of brainwashed idiots who waste the time of others and even ruin the lives of others. 2 days taken from nearly every week for the first 17 years of my life was spent in churches and other religious nonsense. All of that time adds up to a few years of my life basically flushed down the toilet.

"A number of erroneous views have been stated regarding the council's role in establishing the Biblical Canon. In fact, there is no record of any discussion of the Biblical Canon at the council at all. The development of the Biblical Canon took centuries, and was nearly complete by the time the Muratorian fragment was written, perhaps as early as 150 years before the council."
Not saying it wasn't edited and all that jazz. It just wasn't at the Council of Nicaea like a lot of people think. Or at least there is no evidence of that whatsoever. It would of most likely had to have taken place a hundred years before that.edit on 6-4-2011 by tinfoilman because: (no reason given)

WOOOOOOWWW. I'm really digging this thread, because it's given me a lot of new insight as to how i feel about "lucifer" now...Maybe i am brainwashed by society into believing that YHWH is the good one and lucifer is bad. it makes sense that the bad guy would try and demonize the good guy. It's just so hard to make a logical decision because facts have been twisted so horribly throughout history that i have no idea wtf is real anymore. but nonetheless this thread definately "shed some light" on this whole YHWH/Lucifer argument. There is a whole lot more to this topic than most christians will admit. I considered myself a "christian" just a few months ago, but learing what i've been learning these past few months has completely made me unsure just who the good guys are.
