I musta put him off Christianity by calling him out on his ill-tempered racial bigotry. I'm not quite sure why that should offend him, since he agrees with trapper that I'm the deluded one here.
He seems to regard faith as no more than a fair-weather insurance policy against hell, depending on his prevailing mood.
neither one of you pay enough attention or follow along close enough to have anything relevant to add to the discussion. you both worship the jesus of narcissus.
None of my reading includes anything written by Narcissus, so I wouldn't know what kinda jesus he believes in.
You, on the other hand, appear to believe in a jesus who bears a striking resemblance to the jesus of Joseph Smith and Charles Taze Russell.
And maybe a bit of Herbert W Armstrong thrown in for good measure.
Am I right, or am I right?
we have strategically placed this jew and jew lover in your hollywood. the anti christ has been birthed to rule over your children.
can you read?
This autumn I am studying the Talmud Bavli (Bavli =Babylonian), tractate Sanhedrin, from 49b to 113A.
My objective is to bring accurate knowledge of Orthodox Judaism’s holiest book to the attention of the public and to do so in accordance with exegetical principles free of hatred and bias.
1. To the claim that I am "quoting out of context” — I urge readers to access tractate Sanhedrin and study it in an uncensored edition, and judge for yourself. I am hiding nothing and I am taking nothing out of context. Today’s study is entirely consonant with the contents of the Talmud as a whole, and for that matter, with the rabbinic halacha (law) derived from it.
2. With regard to the risible allegation that the contents of the Talmud Bavli have little or no force of law, and are simply a record of debates, cf. "The Babylonian Talmud: Just a series of debates?” (Scroll down on this page http://talmudical.blogspot.com until you come to the headline above, highlighted in red-colored type).
This is a libel against the Torah (the Hebrew “Old” Testament). Nowhere does the Word of God in the Holy Bible state, imply or in any way insinuate that homosexual intercourse with a boy under the age of nine renders the sodomite-perpetrator legally “exempt" from the punishment due for the transgression of child molestation.
This Talmudic halacha, were it a law in Christianity, would be massively publicized repeatedly by the mainstream media.
If this law was present in Islam it would be massively publicized repeatedly by right-wing Churchianity, which publishes and promotes numerous books, pamphlets and radio and television broadcasts purporting to “expose” and “tell the real truth” about Islam. Yet these Church-goers who are putative “followers of Christ” tend to flee in dread at any thought of issuing corresponding publications relating to the exposure of the contents of the Babylonian Talmud and the creed predicated upon it.
America's child-molestation epidemic has a silent partner, in which the churches and the media are complicit.
We state these facts out of love for all people, and in particular Judaic persons, for surely the first victims of the halacha at issue are Judaic boys who are under the authority of the Torah she beal peh (תורה שבעל פה)— the oral law of the Pharisaic “sages” — which is the source of the sacred texts of the Mishnah and Gemara which comprise the Talmud Bavli.
