"The evidence for the miracles is the gospels themselves as they are eyewitness accounts."
This is circular logic.
" The synoptic “problem” is not a problem at all. If 2 or 10 people saw the same events, wouldn’t we expect them to give similar accounts? "
But you maintain that the Bible is inspired and inerrant; similar is not the issue. The gospels have serious differences, including the tone of what Jesus said and did, and the view of what Jesus was, whether extraordinary human or godlike. I agree that to you this is not a problem, but it is to me and when I began reading what scholars (with no view to defend) found when analyzing texts, the differences are obvious.
" Paul did mention the resurrection specifically. "
But Jesus did NOT perform the resurrection, right? Your view is that God resurrected him. Or are you saying that Jesus is God, and resurrected himself?
" Why would Paul preach the resurrection and discount lesser miracles?"
My point exactly! Either they developed after he wrote, or he DID NOT BELIEVE them.
"What verse(s) in the gospels “caused” anti-semitism? There are those that twist verses to say what they were never inteded to say, just as the WTS does."
“Then the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders of the people assembled at the palace of the High Priest, who was called Caiphas, and plotted to take Jesus by trickery and kill Him" (Matthew 26:4).
“The Chief Priest, the elders, and the council sought false testimony against Jesus to put Him to death” (Matthew 26: 59-61)
“...all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death”(Matthew 27:1 ).
And the crowd? They cried that they would take the blood of Jesus on their head and their children's head. So Mad do you think that Pilate became a ruler by being bullied by the crowds? Do you really think that they changed his mind about executing someone that was being called the king of the jews?
By the way, the most RABID anti Jewish accounts are found in Matthew, a book written from and for the Jewish community, who by the time it was written had ejected the christians from the synagogues.
" The interesting thing is that if we follow the sexual, dietary, sanitation, and other guidelines of the Bible; we would live a healthier life – today. "
You mean I need to sacrifice daily, and when I have sex, or have a wet dream? Do I need to avoid pork? Can I sell my slave? Can I accumulate wives? Where do you draw the line if you revere Mosaic laws? Should we stone adulterers again?
" I am convinced that God warns us against promiscuity to guard us from such diseases."
Why does he not warn us against all of the other health hazards of modern living?
If your belief is working for you, fine. I respect that, I have reason to not take the bible literally any more, and Jesus means more to me when he challenges me to live ethically than when he warns me about his (misunderstood, misunderstood again, postponed, postponed again, never mind, not coming) second return.
