    Why Do Some Doubt The Deity of Christ?

    Some doubt the deity of Christ, but one of the greatest Bible scholars of all times, the great German Bible scholar and translator, Dr. J. J. Griesbach; Nor the Bible scholar and translator James Moffat, translator of "The New Testament: A New Translation," who stated in his translation at John 1:1, "... the Logos was divine"; Nor the Bible scholar and translator E. J. Goodspeed translator of ": An American Translation," who stated in his translation at John 1:1, "... and the Word was divine".

    The point of Christ's divinity was made very pointedly by the great scholars and translators of the British Empire in their translation, "The New English Bible, (NEB)" at John 1:1 that reads, "When all things began, the Word already was, The Word dwelt with God, and what God was, the Word was.".

    Now let's reason together, we all know that a son is a lot like the father from our own experience. So if Jesus (Yeshua) is the Son of God as testified to in over 40 scriptures in the Bible, we would expect that he would be a lot like his Father (YHWH). What would this mean, simply that he would be a deity like his Father (YHWH) and that he would be divine like his Father (YHWH). Why do some take this statement of what should be obvious to all with an explanation of surprise? Because they wrongly believe he and his father are one and the same; an impossibility as should be obvious to all.

    Now let's look at what the meaning of divinity is in several dictionaries:

    (from Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary)
    divine (GOD-LIKE) adjective
    connected with a god, or like a god:
    The Ayatollah described the earthquake in Iran as a divine test.
    Some fans seem to regard footballers as divine beings.
    England have fallen so far behind in the championship that their only hope of victory is divine intervention (= help from God).
    Just because you've been promoted that doesn't give you a divine right (= one like that of a god) to tell us all what to do.

    Oxford Dictionary
    divine = /d"van/ adjective (-r, -st) 1 of, from, or like God or a god; sacred. 2 colloquial excellent. verb (-ning) 1 discover by intuition or guessing. 2 foresee. 3 practise divination. noun theologian. divining-rod dowser's forked twig. divinely adverb.

    Wordsmyth Dictionary
    a religious scholar or clergyman. Similar Words exegete , minister , cleric , clergyman , bishop , theologian , prelate , priest , religious
    Definition 2. (cap.) God (usu. prec. by the). Synonyms Godhead {godhead (2)} , Divinity {divinity (2)} , Omnipotent {omnipotent} , Omniscient {omniscient} , God {god (2)} , Deity {deity (4)} Similar Words celestial
    Definition 3. (sometimes cap.) the spiritual or godlike, as opposed to the earthly or worldly. Similar Words divinity

    It is like Jesus (Yeshua) said at Matthew 23:24, but let's look at the context, Matthew 23:13-33, " But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. 14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater d**nation. 15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. 16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! 17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? 18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. 19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? 20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. 21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. 22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon. 23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. 25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. 26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. 29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the d**nation of hell?" ((Authorized King James Bible; AV)

    Let's be inline with Titus 2:1, "But speak thou the things that become sound doctrine:" (Douay Rheims Catholic Bible; DRCB), and not in line with 2 Corinthians 4:4, "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of unbelievers, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine unto them."(DRCB) who do NOT recognize Jesus (Yeshua) as a separate divine being from his Father (YHWH) who is his Father's (YHWH's) master worker and is an obedient Son and follows his Father's (YHWH's) directions.

    See a lot of Biblical specualation on Christ. Was wondering why there is a lack of collaborating sources that are primary (meaning they dont use the bible as a source). Have you ever found any and if so what are they?

    Because the history of Jesus is unevidenced, the deity of Jesus is certainly unevidenced, and the New Testament is rather bad story telling.

    iris89 i can a return question based on yours. Why is it that millions of Christians over thousands of years doing millions and maybe billions of hours of research have failed to turn up any proof to his existance. Nothing nada? Doens't that strike you as odd? And before you pull the belief tatic realize that with that many resources and manpower if he walked the earth something would have turned up by now espcially some fella walking around doing miracles.

    there is evidence.

    you(and others), as a skeptic understandably simply choose to deny our sources.

    For starters i've never put much stock in the Gospels anyways. So if i don't believe in what is written there why should i accept the divinity of a dead first century palestinian jew?

    1-there is no reason the sources should have to be outside of the bible.(but there is)
    2-present more evidence for the existence of anyone who lived more than 500 years ago.and if in your mind you are able to do so, compare that person to the poor 'jew' yeshua was.
    3-check the "historacrisy(sp) of christ thread", i believe pah started it.

    Hi Robetex and Everyone:

    You want to know about Jesus (Yeshua) and his existance, go to my article:

    Documentary on our Savior Jesus (Yeshua);

    http://p197.ezboard.com/fabnafrm10.showMessage?topicID=57.topic

    And some other sources/resources are as follows:

    The Day I Was Crucified...as told by Jesus the Christ by Gene Edwards [religion unknown]

    Ancient historians books and writing, none of whom were Christian:
    The Roman author Suetonius (around A.D. 120) compiled biographies of the first twelve Roman emperors [Julius Caesar (died B.C.44) through Domitian (died A.D. 96)]. Writing about the emperor Claudius (A.D. 41-54) he stated "Because the Jews at Rome cause continuous disturbances at the instigation of Chrestus, (Chrestus, a common slave-name, was popular misspelling of the name of Christ) he expelled them from the city" (Claudius 25:4) A Biblical account of this event is recorded by the physician Luke, "He found a certain Jew named Aquila, a man of Pontus by race, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had commanded all the Jews to depart from Rome" (Acts 18:2).
    Tactius in his Romans Annals (written between 115 and 117 A.D.) spoke of the Christians. "They got their name from Christ, who was executed by sentence of the Procurator Pontius Pilate in the reign of Tiberius" (Tactius, Annals, XV, 44)
    Pliny the younger, imperial legate of the Roman province of Bithynia located in N.W. Asia Minor, wrote to the Emperor Trajan with a description of the Christian's worship. "They were in the habit of meeting on a certain day before sunrise and reciting an antiphonal hymn to Christ as God, and binding themselves with an oath not to commit any crime, but to abstain from all acts of theft, from repudiating a trust when called upon to honor it. After this, it was their custom to separate, and them meet again to partake of food, but food of an ordinary and innocent kind" (From Jesus and Christian Origins Outside the New Testament, by F. F. Bruce, Eerdman Publishers).
    About 52 A.D., Thallus, a freedman of Tiberius, wrote a history of the Eastern Mediterranean world from the Trojan War to his day. His history disappeared but was known by Julius Africanus. Julius Africanus describes the earthquake and the preternatural darkness which accompanied the crucifixion of Christ, and says that Thallus in Book three explained the darkness as an eclipse of the sun. (He also points out that this explanation was unacceptable becuase Jesus was crucified at full moon when no eclipse of the sun is possible) (Jesus and Chrisitan Origins Outside the New Testament, F. F. Bruce).
    Josephus, the Jewish historian, speak of Jesus being condemned to the cross by Pilate and that "the tribe of Christians, so name from him, are not extinct at this day" (Antiquities of the Jews, 18:3, 3). Josephus further speaks of James, the brother of Jesus who is called the Christ. (Antiquities of the Jews, 20:9, 1).
    Proving the historic Jesus, By Harry V. Martin, Copyright FreeAmerica and Harry V. Martin, 1995 [religion unknown]

    Roman Society and Roman Law in the New Testament by William F. Albright

    Retrospect and Prospect in New Testament Archaeology

    Talmud: Talmudic writings of most value concerning the historical Jesus are those compiled between 70 A.D. and 200 A.D.. The most significant test is Sanhedrin 43a: “On the eve of Passover Yeshua was hanged” (Babylonian Talmud). Lucian: Lucian of Samosata was a second-century Greek writer whose works contain sarcastic critiques of Christianity: “The Christians, you know, worship a man to this day—the distinguished personage who introduced their novel rites, and was crucified on that account” (Death of Pelegrine, 11-13).

    The early Jewish Rabbis of the first century did not deny that Jesus performed miracles, but they tried to attribute them to acts of sorcery.

    A passage taken from the Babylonia Sanhedrin written sometime between 95-110 A.D. states:

    "During the time of Passover they executed Yeshu (of Nazareth). An announcement was made for forty days before this saying (Yeshu of Nazareth) will be stoned in that he has practiced sorcery and deceived and led Israel astray. Let everyone who knows contrary, come and plead for his defense. But they found nothing in his defense and crucified him . . ."




    These false allegations by the Jewish leaders trying to say that Jesus performed these miracles by practicing sorcery and magic arts can also be found in the Bible. Luke 11:14-20 states:



    "And He was casting out a demon, and it was mute. So it was, when the demon had gone out, that the mute spoke; and the multitudes marveled. But some of them said, "He casts out demons by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons."

    Others, testing Him, sought from Him a sign from heaven. But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them: "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls. "If Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? Because you say I cast out demons by Beelzebub. "And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges. "But if I cast out demons with the finger of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you."

    An early mention of the miracles of Christ comes from Julian the Apostate (Roman Emperor from 361-363 A.D.) who was an enemy of Christianity, he wrote:

    "Jesus . . . has now been honored for about three hundred years; having done nothing throughout his lifetime that was worthy of fame, unless anyone thinks it a very great work to heal the lame and the blind and to cast out demons in the towns of Bethsaida and Bethany."

    This statement shows that it was commonly accepted that Jesus performed miracles in the villages of Bethsaida and Bethany as recorded in the bible.

    Jewish rabbinical writings found in the Talmud also give witness to the fact that Jesus had the power to heal. One such writing from around 100 A.D. involves the case of Rabbi Eleazar ben Dama who a was bitten by a poisonous snake:

    'Jacob of Kephar Sama arrived to heal him in the name of Jesus [Yeshua]. But Rabbi Ishmael did not permit it. He said:"Ben Dama, you must not do so!"

    (Ben Dama) replied: "I will bring you proof (from the scriptures) that he may heal me!" But he died before he was able to produce the proof.' --Tosefta, Hullin 2.22-23

    "The Life and Works of Flavius Josephus' as translated by William Whiston, A.M., published by the John C. Winston Company confirms this fact on page 534 and also mentions his brother, James, on page 598.

    People doubt Christ because he was a "man". I cannot with any certainty say that anyone existed who I have never met.

    It is a very tiresome and worthless laundry list. If and when you wish to debate them one by one, feel free to start an appropriate thread. It will be fun to see how very little you know about the subject ... ;)

    Hi Everyone

    Here is more sources of data proving the existence of Jesus (Yeshua) for the unreasonable doubter.

    Introduction to the Talmud and Midrash, H.L. Strack and G. Stemberger

    Jesus Under Fire, J.P. Moreland, Michael Wilkins and Edwin M. Yamauchi

    And here are links that will provide you to 100s of reference sources between the two of them:

    The first is a Catholic source, the Catholic Encyclopedia:

    Early Historical Documents on Jesus:

    http://web.ask.com/redir?bpg=http%3a%2f%2fweb.ask.com%2fweb%3fq%3dCatholic%2bencyclopedia%26o%3d0%26page%3d1&q=Catholic+encyclopedia&u=http%3a%2f%2ftm.wc.ask.com%2fr%3ft%3dan%26s%3da%26uid%3d01E1A288B4C608B04%26sid%3d1D945899D753A1D14%26qid%3dA1F014C21A068E4E993180361B6B5FB3%26io%3d1%26sv%3dz6f5372c5%26o%3d0%26ask%3dCatholic%2bencyclopedia%26uip%3dd894f45b%26en%3dte%26eo%3d-100%26pt%3dNEW%2bADVENT%253a%2bHome%26ac%3d3%26qs%3d0%26pg%3d1%26ep%3d1%26te_par%3d102%26te_id%3d%26u%3dhttp%3a%2f%2fwww.newadvent.org%2f&s=a&bu=http%3a%2f%2fwww.newadvent.org%2f&qte=0&o=0&abs=Besides+hosting+the+Summa+Theologica+and+the+1913+Catholic+Encyclopedia%2c+this+site+offers+a+Catholic+FAQ%2c+selected+writings+by+the+Fathers+of+the...&tit=NEW+ADVENT%3a+Home&bin=566d6d18ea561a09639eca56636f523f%26s%3d2317893728&cat=wp&purl=http%3a%2f%2ftm.wc.ask.com%2fi%2fb.html%3ft%3dan%26s%3da%26uid%3d01E1A288B4C608B04%26sid%3d1D945899D753A1D14%26qid%3dA1F014C21A068E4E993180361B6B5FB3%26io%3d%26sv%3dz6f5372c5%26o%3d0%26ask%3dCatholic%2bencyclopedia%26uip%3dd894f45b%26en%3dbm%26eo%3d-100%26pt%3d%26ac%3d24%26qs%3d0%26pg%3d1%26u%3dhttp%3a%2f%2fmyjeeves.ask.com%2faction%2fsnip&Complete=1

    The second is a Jewish source, the Jewish Encyclopedia:

    And, another link:

    And on the Quran (Koran) on Jesus:

    Ayah 7…

    7. íÎÑÌ ãä Èíä ÇáÕáÈ æÇáÊÑÇÆÈ
    Yakhruju min bayni alssulbi waalttara-ibi




    íÎÑÌ = "Yakhruju"

    "Yakhruju" definition:

    He comes out. Appears, emerges, brings out. It comes from the root "kharaja", which means to go out, go forth, come forth, deport, attack, rebel against.

    References:

    The Dictionary of the Holy Qur’an
    Abdul Mannan Omar
    p. 150

    The Koran
    Complete Dictionary & Literal Translation
    Mohamed Ahmed
    p. 419

    Èíä = "bayni"

    "bayni" definition:

    Between; Before. It comes from the root "bana", which means to be distinct and separate, far away, remote from, divorced, clear, obvious, explain.

    Reference:

    The Dictionary of the Holy Qur’an
    Abdul Mannan Omar
    p. 70-71




    ÕáÈ = "ssulbi"

    "ssulbi" definition:

    Backbone; Loins; Spine. It comes from the root "salaba/saliba", which means to put to death by crucifixion, extract marrow from bones.

    Reference:

    The Dictionary of the Holy Qur’an
    Abdul Mannan Omar
    p. 318

    The Koran
    Complete Dictionary & Literal Translation
    Mohamed Ahmed
    p. 71




    Reviewing "al" again…

    Çá= "al"

    "al" definition:

    The definite article. In Arabic it is used to give the meaning of Most, All, Complete, Maximum, Whole, and to donate comprehensiveness, that is to say all aspects or categories of a subject, or to denote perfection and includes all degrees and grades.

    It is also used to indicate something which has already been mentioned or a concept of which is in the mind of the writer or reader.

    Reference:

    The Dictionary of the Holy Qur’an
    Abdul Mannan Omar
    p. 25


    ÇáÕáÈ = "al" + "ssulbi" = "alssulbi" = backbone/loins/spine







    ÊÑÇÆÈ = "ttara-ibi"

    "ttara-ibi" definition:

    Plural noun. Breast bone; Upper part of girls chest. The rib bones. It comes from the root "tariba", which means to have much earth, be full of earth, have dust in his hands, be destitute.

    p. 74

    The Koran
    Complete Dictionary & Literal Translation
    Mohamed Ahmed
    p. 55

    æÇáÊÑÇÆÈ = "wa" + "al" + "ttara-ibi" = "waalttara-ibi" = and the breast bone/rib bones


    Thus, we have this Literal rendering of 86:7…

    He comes out/emerges/appears from between the backbone/loins/spine and the breast bone/rib bones.


    Let’s examine all of the ayahs in the Koran that mention crucifixion:

    And their saying: "We have killed the Messiah, Jesus, Mary's son, Allah's messenger, and they have not killed him, and they have not crucified him/placed him on a cross, and but (it) resembled/was vague/was doubtful to them, and that those who disagreed/disputed in (about) him (are) in doubt/suspicion from him, (there is) no knowledge for them with (about) him, except following the assumption , and they have not killed him surely/certainly. (4:157)

    Waqawlihim inna qatalna almaseeha AAeesa ibna maryama rasoola Allahi wama qataloohu wama salaboohu walakin shubbiha lahum wa-inna allatheena ikhtalafoo feehi lafee shakkin minhu ma lahum bihi min AAilmin illa ittibaAAa alththanni wama qataloohu yaqeenan

    æãÇÕáÈæå = "wama salaboohu"

    "wama salaboohu" definition:

    They did not cause death by crucification. It comes from the root "salaba/saliba", which means to put to death by crucifixion, extract marrow from bones.

    Reference:

    The Dictionary of the Holy Qur’an
    Abdul Mannan Omar
    p. 318



    But (the) reward (of) those who embattle/fight Allah and His messenger, and they strive/endeavor in the earth/Planet Earth corruption/disorder, that they be killed or they be crucified, or their hands and their feet be cut off from opposites, or they be expelled/exiled from the land, that (is) for them shame/scandal/disgrace in the present world, and for them in the end (other life is) a great torture. (5:33)

    Innama jazao allatheena yuhariboona Allaha warasoolahu wayasAAawna fee al-ardi fasadan an yuqattaloo aw yusallaboo aw tuqattaAAa aydeehim waarjuluhum min khilafin aw yunfaw mina al-ardi thalika lahum khizyun fee alddunya walahum fee al-akhirati AAathabun AAatheemun

    íÕáÈæÇ = "yusallaboo"

    "yusallaboo" definition:

    They will crucify till death. It comes from the root "salaba/saliba", which means to put to death by crucifixion, extract marrow from bones.

    Reference:

    The Dictionary of the Holy Qur’an

    "fayuslabu" definition:

    Will be crucified till death. It comes from the root "salaba/saliba", which means to put to death by crucifixion, extract marrow from bones.

    He said: "You believed to him before that I permit for you, that he truly (is) your biggest/greatest who taught/instructed you the magic/sorcery, so I will cut off/sever your hands and your feet from opposites (sides), and I will crucify you in the palm trees' trunks/stems, and you will know which of us (is) stronger (in) torture and more lasting."

    "walaosallibannakum" definition:

    I will surely crucify till death. It comes from the root "salaba/saliba", which means to put to death by crucifixion, extract marrow from bones.

    Reference:

    The Dictionary of the Holy Qur’an
    Abdul Mannan Omar
    p. 318


    Key point from all of the crucifixion ayahs:

    1) Every time crucifixion is mentioned in the Koran, the word used to describe the event can be traced back to the same root words "salaba/saliba" as utilized in ayah 7

    Apparently, Iris89 you are better at regurgitating slop than arguing positions. That's OK; we all have our strengths and weaknesses. But this is a 'debate' forum. My offer stands.

    Hi Deut. 32.8

    Your statement,
    Is entirely wrong, I am not regurgitating slop, but bring the facts to light with respect my leader and savior Jesus (Yeshua). I offer reality, not nonsense.

    Now here is more showing that the Quran (Koran) clearly speaks of Jesus' (Yeshua's) crucifiction:

    They will crucify till death. It comes from the root “salaba/saliba”, which means to put to death by crucifixion, extract marrow from bones.

    Reference:

    The Dictionary of the Holy Qur’an
    Abdul Mannan Omar

    Reference:

    p. 318


    Key point from all of the crucifixion ayahs:

    1) Every time crucifixion is mentioned in the Koran, the word used to describe the event can be traced back to the same root words “salaba/saliba” as utilized in ayah 7





    Summary:

    1) Ayah 7 tells us from where mankind was “created”
    2) It describes the source of the water “ma-in” that is in motion
    3) This source of the water comes from “between the backbone/loins/spine and the breast bone/rib bones
    4) “alssulbi” which is rendered backbone/loins/spine, comes from the root “salaba/saliba”, which means TO PUT TO DEATH BY CRUCIFIXION,
    5) Furthermore, investigating all the Koranic passages dealing with the crucifixion, trace their origins back to the roots “salaba/saliba”
    6) The definite article “al” in addition to signifying all aspects of a subject, can also be used to denote something which has already been mentioned or a concept of which is in the mind of the reader or writer
    7) This water is described as coming from the human anatomy
    8 ) This water, from which mankind is created, comes from “alttariqi”
    9) “alttariqi” has been given human attributes





    Integrated Summary of the Sura title & ayahs 1-7:

    1) The Sura title, “alttariqi” unites the following three aspects: One who comes at night; One who knocks; Morning Star
    2) Ayah 1 begins by acknowledging and joining all “al” aspects of heaven “ssama” and all “al” aspects of “ttariqi”
    3) This sets the stage for the rest of the Sura
    4) Ayah 2 asks how you came to the knowledge of “alttariqi”
    5) Thus, the premise has been established that “alttariqi” is already known
    6) Ayah 3 describes “alttariqi” as a rising star/planet having piercing brightness
    7) Ayah 4 further elaborates on “alttariqi” proclaiming that ALL souls gather on it as a guardian
    8 ) This gathering of spirits involves a punishment
    9) This punishment involves blood
    10) Ayah 5 is directly linked to ayah 4 by the sequence marker “fa” on “lyanthuri” proclaiming that not only do ALL souls gather on it as a guardian, but mankind has an intimate connection with “alttariqi”
    11) This intimate connection, from which mankind is created is sacred/consecrated
    12) To consecrate is to devote irrevocably to the worship of God
    13) Ayah 6 expands upon ayah 5 and tells us from what mankind was created
    14) The water “ma-in” in ayah 6 is described as large in quantity by the root “maha”, which means to hold much water
    15) The large volume of water is in motion; pouring/jetting/flowing forcefully
    16) Comparing all of the Koranic fluid-based “creation” passages, clearly shows that Sura 86 is not referring to creation via an emitted drop “nutfah”, nor is it referring to creation via stagnant, insignificant water
    17) The “creation” of man spoken of in this Sura is unique from everything else mentioned in the entire Koran
    18 ) Both Blood and Water have been mentioned
    19) Ayah 7 tells us from where mankind was “created”
    20) It describes the source of the water “ma-in” that is in motion
    21) This source of the water comes from “between the backbone/loins/spine and the breast bone/rib bones
    22) “alssulbi” which is rendered backbone/loins/spine, comes from the root “salaba/saliba”, which means TO PUT TO DEATH BY CRUCIFIXION,
    23) Furthermore, investigating all the Koranic passages dealing with the crucifixion, trace their origins back to the roots “salaba/saliba”
    24) The definite article “al” in addition to signifying all aspects of a subject, can also be used to denote something which has already been mentioned or a concept of which is in the mind of the reader or writer
    25) This water is described as coming from the human anatomy
    26) This water, from which mankind is created, comes from “alttariqi”
    27) “alttariqi” has been given human attributes

    Hi Everyone

    I do not debate fact as that is a useless activity. I did NOT make my post on this forum, but the Biblical form; it was moved. I think debates as stupid; discussions of fact are quite a different matter as they can be upbuilding as Jesus (Yeshua) showed during his time on earth.

    Facts and resources should be presented, not debated.

    Of course you`re right why would one wish to substantiate their beliefs?
    Especially if they cannot stand up to scrutiny.

    Is it just me or do we seem to have an influx of Christians (JW`s mostly) here lately simply regurgitating crap from assorted religious sites without one word of their personal feelings or analysis of any topic?

    It`s as if they just swallow all this stuff and the thought of questioning it is abhorent to them.

    weird
