The answer is Peter.
Peter denies Jesus three times.
cookie for you.
Now, ask any christian what is the worst thing you can do (besides blaspheme the holy spirit..whatever that is) and they will say to know and deny
(Stealth Add: Matthew 16:23
Jesus turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of
Judas never denied...Peter did.
Peter was the betrayer
however, all of this matters not, because all are forgiven, from judas (he arguably didn't need forgivness) to peter, to the romans, etc
"Forgive them, for they know not what they do"
Yep, all are happy in heaven now...so, us earthlings contemplating on who is evil of the group, who is in hell, etc...well, that is simply going
against jesus's salvation
it is denying christ again, but on a wide scale
Who are you (not you, general statement) to overrule christs salvation? Are you a god?
(ghostbusters just came to mind).
Anyhow, anyone whom suggests judas is somehow evil, or a betrayer, clearly knows more than christ and higher on the holy scale considering they refute
I often wonder if the wolves get warm wearing all that wool.
You want to see the true demons of society...look at the so called christians posing as christs superior and laying judgement on mankind
Now, do I believe peter was an actual betrayer, or satan? no. but the point is, all things you are taught may not be as they seem. a case can be
made that judas is a betrayer, however, there is much stronger evidence, on how its written and the whole context, that peter may be the one pitching
for the wrong team.
But to label any of the group, or anyone for that matter, as evil...is going against the salvation of christ to begin with...
(btw, agnostic atheist, however I love a good theological discussion.)
