    Good on ya, Buck! That’s a high compliment to be able to substitute for the great Maha Rushi!

    Oh, but I do Sirhan. I don’t claim to know everything about Islam, but I do know enough to make that call.

    Sirhan,

    You’ve made my point exactly. Muhammad fulfills those prophesies just about as much as I do, which means: he doesn’t.

  • April 16, 2014 at 3:10pm

    There is nothing in any of those scriptures that uniquely points to Muhammad. Wherever you have inserted the “(Muhammad)”, I could insert my name and it would be just as accurate.

    This isn’t the issue to do it over.

    I know there are a lot of rightfully indignant people out there, and there is a time to stand against injustice. The problem is, this ain’t it. The Nevada State Constitution ratified in 1864 declares that that land belongs to the Federal Government. Right or wrong, it is a fact. Some of the land that Bundy allows his animals to graze on is not his property, and since he has not paid his grazing fees since 1993, he is trespassing unless he forks over the roughly 1 million dollars he is in arrears for. Now those are facts. Question: do you want to start a revolution over grazing fees?

    Now I agree that the BLM is handling this wrong, but we need to pick our battles. Believe me, I take no joy in not being able to stand with so many of you whom I respect. I have to stand with Glenn on this one, not because I don’t believe there will never be a time to make a stand, but that this is not that moment.

    I am extremely sympathetic to Bundy and to those who stand with him in principle. However, the facts are not in their favor, guys. This is not the fight you want.

    It almost makes me wonder whether deep inside she hates her life and sees this as a way out. That this girl finds meaning in her life through murder speaks to her spiritual bankruptcy.

    I knew there were alterations, but I would be glad to look at the evidence so I can understand better what was changed.

    I would like to appeal to any Catholics or Eastern Orthodox Christians out there who have access to the writings of some of the church fathers and early Christian historians living in the first few centuries after Christ. Specifically I would like to know if there is anything written by Sts. Clement, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Origen, Eusebius, or someone like them that any comment on the matter. I want to learn when the idea that Christ wasn’t married became formalized in the Catholic church, if it ever was.

    LestWeForget,

    I appreciate your reasoning. The Catholic Church has been around for a long long long time. Without doubt the tradition of the Catholic Church holds weight in this issue.

    Genesis 1:27

    27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

    I don’t rationalize “in his own image” to be anything other than what it says.

    Like you, I believe wholeheartedly in the Gospels, but I also know that they say nothing about Jesus’ marital status. For heaven’s sake, the only reason we know Peter was married is because his wife was involved in an event that ended up being recorded. That we know Peter was married is incidental knowledge. It was not important to the purpose of the document.

    The Gospels weren’t concerned with giving every last detail about Jesus and they never claim that. Jesus having a wife does no violence to the Gospels because there is nothing to contradict. Granted, I am not going to base my belief of Jesus having a wife on this Coptic text, but neither am I going to completely dismiss it either. It is merely a piece of data.

    It is only Satanic if it turns you away from Christ. It doesn’t do that to me.

    And you know this how?

    When was there ever a Father without a Mother.

    LestWeForget,

    You’re right. It is not the zenith. I just got a bit carried away. :)

    Seriously though, I do believe that it is holy.

  • April 10, 2014 at 7:14pm

    I don’t have a problem with people believing that Jesus was not married, as long as they realize how little information there is on the subject. Heck, there is as much proof of Him being single as there is that He was married.

    However, I do have a problem with people who are unwilling to understand the basis of their own traditions and assumptions. Give me your convictions and reasoning, but don’t tell me that the Bible says He was single, when it says no such thing.

    As for me, I would just say that I don’t know for sure. Meanwhile, I’m sure nobody’s salvation is dependent on whether they’ve got His marital status right.

    LovingAmerica,

    You’re right. Christ’s primary mission was to atone for the sins of the world through His sufferings in Gethsemane up to His death on the Cross. Like you, I believe that lived, He died, and rose again the third day. He is the Lord Yahweh, the Alpha and Omega, Messiah, and Savior.

    Another aspect of His mission, however, was that He was sent to be our exemplar and to fulfill the Law. I can’t imagine how fulfilling the Law would not involve fulfilling the first commandment given to mankind.

    Avenger,

    The four gospels tell me nothing about Jesus’ marital status.
