don't you find the denial of jesus being married amusing? and all the hoops and gymnastics.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
KJV Psa 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. 7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. 8 Arise, O
Isaiah45:9 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands? 10 Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth? 11 Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me. 12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded

82:6 was directed toward the priests. That's who he was talking to at that exact point in time. There's a big difference between the priests and the common folk. Again, scripture taken out of context...and I say it not out of reverence for the Bible, but because I don't like anything taken out of context. Context can save lives.

No. No there isn't ANY historical evidence proving the existance of Jesus outside of the bible. All the third party testimony (as in non christian testimony) concerning "Jesus" was written by people LONG after Jesus supposedly died. The closest thing to a contemporary account would be Josephus, and that was written in 1 CE They are also hotly contested because he mentions Jesus twice and one of those mentions he identifies him as the son of Damneus and that he was made high priest. Look, if you guys wanna believe Jesus is your personal savior that's fine and dandy and I have no problem with that. But when Christians try to prove their rightness to me using "historical evidence" that doesn't exist I take extreme exception to that.

This is correct.
We're not going to buy into a 5th Century fragment from a gnostic community in Egypt.
The dreams and visions of gnostics are no basis for faith; they have no more validity than the dreams of anyone else.
