Gnosticism was a real concern of the time, as it is today.

How you can derive from John 10 that Jesus discriminated against people who could come to him (be Christians) is beyond my (not too shabby) hermeneutic skills. Enlighten me.

No.

There are beleivers here in the United States.

There is also something called "democracy."

Why are the two necessarily deemed mutually exclusive?


Take gentle care...

I'm sorry, I don't parse scripture. I do not play oneupmanship with scripture. If it was clear cut, and needed no interpretation, it would have been made law in the 19th century. If the way you interpret the Bible leads you to try and make abortion illegal, then you have every right to try and influence your politicians to make it illegal. Until you do make it illegal though, it is a moot point, in this country. So long as the typical "Christian" accepts the invasion of Iraq, the torture and incarceration of Muslims, supports the invasion of Palestine, supports the death penalty, and maintains a standing army which is trained to kill human beings, I find your anti-abortion stance hypocritical. Until such time as you adhere to ALL Judaic law and do not select and choose which to believe in and which to disregard, your credibility is in serious question.

However, I do have a suggestion. If you don't think abortion is right, then don't have one.
