    the essence of what god is stated to be in the NT, is not necessarily the fundamental of fundamentalists. what should be fundamental for all isn't what christian fundamentalist focus upon.

    unconditional love isn't a respecter of persons even if a christian fundamentalist believe it should be so.

    Sick, stupid, ignorant, blather. Posted by one who holds a child molester in higher regard than the Son of God. Why not just give up the facade and come out of the closet ??

    His teachings were the way. Love god, and others as yourself, put others first and yourself last. Seems a good message. Sadly, some people took the message of Jesus and made it the message about Jesus and it went downhill from there.

    The Romans didn't design fundamentalism.

    I meant that the romans designed churchianity to render passive the rebellious christians whom they had persecuted brutally for centuries.

    Their official form of christianity is quite different from the original christianity taught by Christ and ensured that variant christian sects were wiped out or brought to uniformity with typical Roman efficiency.

    Even the most reformed and humanistic branches of Judaism would not be considered Jewish if they followed John 14:6. So Jesus was preaching something else, something different, right?

    Admittedly, I am quite ignorant regarding the New Testament. John 14:6? In your opinion, is it an accurate rendering of Jesus' words? Has it been refuted or has its authenticity been questioned based on archeology or other historical data? John, the author, was a close companion of Jesus?

    The gospels didn't have any names until 150 AD. The authors were anonymous. Naming them Matthew, Mark, Luke and John is a tradition that developed much later.

    Luke was a Greek (Gentile or Jew) living in Antioch who never met Jesus.. Mark was a disciple of Peter not Jesus.

    Historically, Mark is seen as one of Peter's disciples. The historian Papias in the 2nd Century refers to him as such. Likewise, the evidence in the narrative, for example, indicates that Peter was a significant source for most of the material, and most theologians accept Mark as "Peter's" Gospel.

    The Book of John has lots of problems.

    With the coming of the Messiah, Christianity was the correct extension of Judaism, The Jews missed the boat then. However Messianic Jews are growing in number, they know who their Messiah is.

    Christ taught Christianity, else his disciples and Apostles all Jews, would have stayed in Judaism. They were followers of THE WAY, and such followers later were called Christians, the exact same thing.

    He taught the very fundamentals of Christianity. I recognise you view everything from a koranic perspective, but you are wrong.

    You have more education, you think ? Perhaps, I only have two degrees, In criminal justice and criminology, and have attended numerous special schools and academies.

    I won´t report you for name calling, unlike some, I couldn´t care less.

    You are Episcopalian, that explains much. At one time you had a bishop who was an atheist.

    I now clearly understand your subversion related to Christianity and the Bible, your denomination along with itś English iteration has been doing it for a long time.

    Christ talked about the futility of trying to serve two masters, He, and the world.

    Your denomination tries anyway, and drifts further and further away from him. Too bad.

    Where I live there are lots of churches with priests and Bishops. I thought that was what Episcopal means.

    That's why I asked 'Which Church?'

    No matter........ :)
