    Jesus is the man, the myth, the legend! God set him apart from all the rest for a reason.

    In reality and non civilization did humans or any object ever own a name?

    The answer should be no....for a human chose to give everything a name for a human purpose.

    Creation never existed named.

    Logic means you are logical by an assessment to speak the truth when you reason information....as that human self.

    I've never understood just what the reason was. Perhaps you can help me?

    Why was Jesus on a suicide mission from the start? (Mark 2:20, Mark 14:36 and so on).

    What did Jesus' death actually accomplish? What aspect of reality was different afterwards?

    Why did it need a death? Why couldn't an omnipotent God have effected any change [he] wished with one snap of [his] omnipotent fingers?

    Since the Bible is metaphorical it could be any reason you choose:D

    Ah, so the bible has no intrinsic meaning ─ only whatever the reader would like it to mean!

    I'm reminded of Dr Who's psychic paper.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    Signs that from Sodom and Gomorrah, homosexual behaviour, criminal activity increases, sexuality itself changed, males having sex with children. marriage to God O the stone for human spiritual parents the face of the Earth.

    God O owns a stone face......O pi owns the face of the spirits of God in the heavens in space the great deep floating on water....changed also by UFO burning.

    SIGNS from BC 0 JESUS....spatial 0 cold zero before CHRIST the Earth gas heavens being irradiated burnt out and removed before they existed rationally....as if science is trying to burn out Earth own its heavenly gases, STEPHEN HAWKING warning to science.

    The KING...…………….
    Matthew 24:1-51
    Jesus left the temple and was going away, when his disciples came to point out to him the buildings of the temple. But he answered them, “You see all these, do you not? Truly, I say to you, there will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.” As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?” And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. ...

    Sodom and Gomorrah cities of GOD, meaning stone mountains[​IMG] stone mountain LAW OF GOD changes.
    [​IMG] Temples of God inferred, in the V shape of the mountain you can see a male head wearing a crown. Temples and cities of God were actually owned by the planet....and the feed back image etched into stone, just like the male science self had his face etched into the stone by feed back radiation attack.

    [​IMG]
    Temple of God, can see the human image on the right hand side of the monument, etched into the stone.....the time on Earth when the human sexuality becomes depraved is the warning for when God the Earth will change in RADIATION cause.....as a self teaching in science.

    Since homosexual behavior is found throughout the animal kingdom, the only credible explanation is that it's God's wish and intention.

    Indeed, if you stop and think about it, once God's omnipotent and omniscient, EVERYTHING is God's wish and intention and ALL the bucks stop at [his] desk.

    This story belongs to the myth of the "Dying and Rising deity" which occurs in several cultures. It seems to be an astro-mythical telling of a Sky Deity revolving on the night Sky.

    Theologically, this death is needed in order to hold the humanity to the idea that "we are all sinners" so that priests and politicians could govern their gatherings.

    In fact, this story is just a cultural astro-mythical telling of the dying and rising deity depicting a star constellation image revolving in the night Sky.

    When did "God in the Sky" ever engage in human matters? As a celestial image only this "god" is omni-impotent regarding human activities - bad or good.

    My questions were about any underlying theology for the matter. I still haven't found any.

    OK.... you're preaching. So what's your point here?
    Again, what's your point? Should we treat the Bible as mythology, then?
    Not following. What do you mean, here?

    Jesus came on a suicide mission to take the consequences of our evil deeds on Himself.
    Jesus death and resurrection was to draw us to Him to reap the benefits of His death, as ordained by God in the Hebrew scriptures. Since then people have been born into the Kingdom of God.
    We are human and God wants people who freely choose Him not people who are changed by a snap of God's fingers.
    This of course is only part of the story.

    Everyone who goes to war could be said that he/she is potentially going on a suicide mission.

    Then again, He lives?

    Yes... and since there is cannibalism throughout the animal kingdom... we should eat one another?

    It´s all nothing but theological dogmas produced by priests (and politicians) in order to hypnotize humans to act as the proponents of the dogmas want them to - i.e. to support the priests themselves. I´t s initially just a huge theological EGO TRIP.

    But this is all folklore. Do you actually believe it?
    Why?
