did not jesus said" that the gates of hades or hell will not prevail against it"
Please provide an original manuscript proving that Jesus said this. I'll give you a hint: there aren't any. As Terry pointed out, our 'faith' rests on hearsay.
lets look at the Bible, how did the bible survive to this day, did it not suffer presecution? Did not god preserve it
The bible has been preserved by people...as history bears out. Very brave people, some of whom died in order to preserve it.
Can you do more research?
The answers are there, if you are willing to put in the time and effort. Are you? I don't mean to sound dismissive, but I wonder how sincere you are in searching for answers. Suggesting that Terry do more research for you is just a wee bit tacky, don't you think? Unless you're just asking rhetorical questions in order to prove some point...
