And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night: He made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of heaven to give light upon the earth: and God saw that it was good. And to rule over the day, and to divide the light from the darkness. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day." Gen 1:14-19.

Let's see: 2000 years of war and bloodshed in the name of Jesus. Since you include the OT in this diatribe, we must include the Muslims: 1400 years of war and bloodshed. Now, please tell me about Jesus or your god being the light. Tell us again how all this death (billions) and all this suffering (more billions) has something to do with the light. It looks pretty damn dark to me - a blight on the history of the human species and all life that has had to endure your "light".

Jesus lives in Mexico and owns a bar called Nailed To The Cross.

People come from miles around to enjoy his spirits and his patrons enjoy the Bloody Marys as well.

Hey Harold, it's Monday, I've advised one of you nut cases before (probably you) that Sunday is the day for you guys to crawl out of your hole and babble your idiocy. Please have respect for the normal posters here and leave the rest of the week for us. - Now, back in your hole.

Jesus thought he was Ra? Apollo? Hyperion? Artemis?

What? No burning in a lake of fire? Actually, I had a conversation with Jesus a couple of times when I was out in the woods doing Vitamin L. He told me that the first to go will be his so called followers because of all the hate and killing they have done in his name. That really pisses him off. He commanded you to not judge people and you continue to do so.

Yeah, that's what Jesus supposedly told his audience too, the New Testament reports him saying several times that he'd be back within the lifetime of the people listening to him, and St. Paul, who never met him, certainly believed he'd be back any minute. Jesus was wrong, Paul was wrong, and so are you, you're living a delusion.

Hey Cliff- I wished he'd just save this sh*t for Sunday.

Paul was an epileptic and saw Jesus during a seizure. Sounds credible to me. How about you?

Perfectly credible that Paul would think he saw Jesus during a seizure, I've heard claims just as strange from people who've had seizures and strokes, and even from people who haven't, like the neighbour who claimed Jesus routinely sat at her kitchen table chatting with her, but his interpretation of the event lacks a certain sense of reality.

I have a friend who is bi-polar. She spent some time in the Psych ward and claims Jesus visited her every day wearing a t-shirt and blue jeans. He told her that Christianity had it all wrong. He was more of a Zen Buddhist and liked to smoke gaunga.

Yeah, right. You Bible-thumpers can't even prove the existence of this guy and you claim something like that? lmao It's more likely that I'll meet some other god simply because there are more of them.

Big deal - you quote from all over both the Old and the New Testament. You mention Peter, and you mention that man Saul! You are so all over the place. To tell you the truth?
Jesus said that it was Peter, the 'Rock' upon who he would build his church, and Peter was a Jew and the 'way' was a Jewish way, and then you mention Paul!?!
Paul took what was essentially a 'review' of Judaism, and turned it into something that Jesus never meant. The church you promote has nothing to do with Jesus and everything to do with Paul - he may well have been born a Jew but he was a Greco-Roman in outlook and belief. Jesus isn't your 'saviour', Paul, the Roman is.

That is why I like to call it Paulianity. Has a nice double entendre sound about it. The other handle I like is Churchianity.
