Could you summarize this is handy bullet point form?
I doubt that is possible.
Carpal-Tunnel you know.
Good Lord, man! This is a lot to wade through! This caught my eye, however. I disagree with both you and Saint Louis, here. We are invited to examine CHristian beliefs. I think Mt 7:15 is talking about people who claim to prophecy in the name of Jesus/Yaweh. They can be tested. At least one of thier prophecies should be fulfillable during their lives. If ANY of their prophecies is EVER proven false, then they are not true prophets. Thus, by their fruits will you know them.
Sarn, I read the long version. I'd be very interested to discuss NT theology with you after you finish reading the rest of the book.
I admire your desire to read for yourself given that you are an athiest. But I agree there is a difference between both works, what I find most interesting is the clarity you describe came after Jesus came to redeem the world as is expressed in the New Testament. People study the bible for many years, even scholars sometimes disagree with certain conclusions. Im not so sure that reading the bible is the only way to see proof of God's existance though it is the foundation. The best lesson to take from the New Testament is learning how to be a good moral person, and when you do this everything else in life falls nicely into place, and as you stated Jesus is very specific in this. The Ten Commandments were changed from the Old Testament to the New going from ten to one which is the most important one, and if you do follow that one, you are following all the Commandments. It's perfect simplicity.
Nah. I'm just waiting to see who's cows you lead to the buzzsaw.
I think it would be important to get some Jewish input.
