Are you implying that zthatzmanz wasn’t describing bigotry?

Execute? Don’t you find that to be harsh? Not to mention that 2 of the 3 things he mentions aren’t even crimes, and since he is in Texas, bestiality isn’t a crime in that jurisdiction either.

So this evangelical is proposing death for things that are legal, but he doesn’t like.

How is that different from bigotry?

(1) aside that it is not correctly "a fictional parable story representing things of the spiritual realm." but Two contradictory apologetics fabrications designed to correct a doctrinal omission - Jesus ought to have been from Bethlehem, not from Nazareth.

John 7. 41 Others said, “He is the Messiah.”
Still others asked, “How can the Messiah come from Galilee? 42 Does not Scripture say that the Messiah will come from David’s descendants and from Bethlehem, the town where David lived?


This problem is why the two nativities were invented. Mark (the earliest synoptic, you can bet on it) of course doesn't have one, just as he doesn't have a resurrection appearance. That also was an Omission that had to be corrected by invented and contradictory fairy tales.
If only they had Google Docs so that everyone could share and review and comment on the same information.

True, although even Google Docs can only reduce inherently contradictory ideas to a dull roar.

I'm risking derailing here, but the answer is the 'how did they know?' apologetic. The evangelists knowing things they couldn't have known is put down to days or weeks of talking it all over with each other and the returned Jesus (Acts 1.3) and so they all knew what Jesus had done in the garden while they were all supposed to be asleep.

Thus they all ought to know about the massacre of innocents, the announcement in the Nazareth synagogue, the opening graves, raising of Lazarus, the stab in the side, the Transfiguration (John has never heard of it) the penitent thief, Jesus sent to have Antipas look at him, the appearance of the resurrected Jesus to the women (Matthew) the appearance of Jesus to Simon (Luke) and many, many, many similar examples of stuff not recounted by all. They all ought to have known the most important stuff at any rate. So witness discrepancy will not wash and it never did.

This isn't to even mention that John has not a single parable and nothing of the sermon. But he has many of his own sermons, not a scrap of which appears in the Synoptics.

The conclusion is clear - they made this stuff up. And thus the good old Eusebian rationalization of 'weaving together' is simply fiddling the evidence to make it work, or rather gloss over that it doesn't.

Maybe Moses and his lawyer would of condemned these people as Moses was not born again in Christ , as He lived under a shadow of Jesus Christ to come so the power to convert was not in Moses and God`s hand in those days ....... But today Christians have the power to convert people to God so killing sinners is obsolete , as Jesus is the redeemer , so killing sinners are the liberals against God and His plan

Jimmie, I HATE deceitful teachings based on FEAR and meant to manipulate others to join the BORG..

Oh and I really hate NAZIS, WHITE SUPREMACISTS, people who use God and scripture to justify their HATE and BIGOTRY, and a few other types that use others for personal gain and benefit including pedophiles, rapists, and those who grope private body parts of women, and the zealots who cause a child to stumble...

Yeah, me too, but the U.S. is 99.999999999999% NOT that. Why you focus on the bad, I do not know.
