Fraudulent teaching

After watching DNA vs Book of Mormon the thought that I have is - can the church leadership be sued for fraudulent teaching? For that matter the same argument can be made against Christians and Muslims. I suppose no one really has the money or determination to do so. And who would be acceptable to both sides  to render a non-bias decision?See More

Who was Jesus

Posted on May 16, 2012 at 1:21am 0 Comments

Who Was Jesus

Defining who Jesus was is problematic and complex. Thousands of religious devotees, antagonists and scholars have weighed in over the centuries on the subject. Jesus has to be understood on two levels, theologically and historically. Looking at Jesus theologically becomes mind boggling do to the fact that one has to examine the thousands of Christian religions as well as Judaism and Islam. They contradict each other on so many theological aspects…

I was just wondering how Tommy is handling the fact that many are leaving and the 'anxiety' he must have that Jesus does not give him any personal direct physical appearances or reevaluations.

Was anyone part of the rapture and end of the world last Saturday? I had a vision that I was at the judgment bar and there was Simon Cowell on the left, Donald Trump on the right and Allah in the middle. “ Jesus, Where is Jesus “ I said ? Donald pointed his finger at me and said ‘’ Jesus, He was fired

Whats with Cupid?

What’s with Cupid? If it brings in the $ to keep the site running I am for it. But it may give fodder to the TBM's that consider us immoral. But I do not care what they will think.

Dan, as your have a BA in Biblical Studies, perhaps you can satiate my curiosity about the "Coat of Many Colors" that Jacob gave Joseph.  I used to attend Church Education Week every year and one speaker said that phrase translated to "Coat of Pieces", but was changed because they didn't know what it meant.  He said the Coat of Pieces was the coat of authority as leader of the Bedouin tribe.  It was so called because it had long sleeves made of many pieces.  That's why Joseph was hated by his brothers so much, because Jacob gave Joseph the leadership of the tribe rather than the eldest son.

I've never heard that from any one else in the church.  Have you?  The story of Joseph may be fabrication, but do you know if the Bedouins had a coat of authority like that?

Interesting what you say about psychics. I haven't seen or met one yet myself. I think I'm too skeptical. They do sound interesting for parties though :-)
