Is it really true jesus will give extra good karma if you make things up on a sunday?
Not that I'm aware of, dear Bohm (peace to you!). Why do you ask? I ask YOU... because nothing in my statement was made up. True, it may not be delineated in detail in " the Bible", but so what? Since when is the Bible the ONLY source for knowing the mind of Christ? Even the Bible doesn't make that claim. Seriously, dear one... holy spirit trumps the Bible any day. Every day. Including Sunday.
AGuest, you made a lot of excuses for Jesus.
No excuses, dear Rebel8 (peace to you, as well!), truly. You made certain claims based on various Bible verses. Besides that fact that a couple didn't even relate to what you claimed (which could be considered slander and libel in some circles), you completely overlooked (1) the context, or (2) the circumstances, or (3) the truth of the matters. Why is it okay for you to make the false claims you did... but not for me to respond and counter them with the truth?
Sometimes things are as they seem at face value.
In that case, everything in the Bible should be taken at face value, yes? Surely, you don't believe that. Even I know better than that...
Or I guess not, since Jesus said he was trying to trick most people so they would go to hell.
Well, that's your take on it. If you believe that, though... it seems to ME that you would want to hurry up and get in with those he WASN'T trying to "trick", yes? Otherwise, you would also be among those so "tricked." Yes? But I'm thinking you DON'T believe that... in which case, I can't say I get why you're ridiculing something YOU don't even BELIEVE...
You know, dear ones, I get where those who don't believe the Bible would ridicule the WRITERS of certain things... but how can you rationally take issue with the One about whom certain things are WRITTEN, or things he is purported to have said... if you don't believe he existed/exists... or such things actually occurred/were SAID? That's just as ridiculous to me... as some of the off-the-wall teachings of the WTBTS... which are supposedly based on what's "written in the Bible"... but are not.
Just sayin'... nohmsayin'?
Again, peace to you!
YOUR servant and a slave of Christ,
