Do we really need a man to suffer, to be tortured, be humiliated and ultimately be crucified and killed ( temporarily ) in order to follow him?
Of course we dont. We just need a just man that talks sense possibly with a bit of charisma. We follow all sort of people for all sorts of reasons all the time why would be different for him.
Do we really need a man to suffer, to be tortured, be humiliated and ultimately be crucified and killed to recognize him as the son of god?

....and in that dream a prophet or a saint or a god of your religion ( lets say you're a christian and jesus speaks to you In that dream ) tells you something. How would you value that experience?
Now, Same incipit but this time in the dream is a prophet/god of a religion different from your own, ( lets say you're a christian and Muhammad speaks to you In that dream ) how would you value that experience?

But Eve heard and believed and went out of the water of the river, and her flesh was (trembling) like grass, from the chill of the water. And when she had gone out, she fell on the earth and the devil raised her up and led her to Adam. But when Adam had seen her and the...
I've heard it said a number of times by Muslims that Jews are planning (late at night at the yearly graveyard gathering no doubt) to build a Temple/synagogue on the Temple Mount currently occupied by al Aqsa Mosque. I thought I would take the time to make a thread about some of the reasons that this couldn't be true.
1. Israel is a secular state. Its Jewish nature is cultural not religious. Its hard enough to get them to clear a plot to build a synagogue anywhere else in the country, let...
