Are you aware of just how many individuals by the name “Jesus” Josephus mentions?
How many?
>a lot of history we think we know is obviously manipulated through forgeries and redactions and god knows what else
Modern historians have ways of identifying interpolations and forgeries. Are the methods 100%, no, but assuming everything is fake until proven otherwise would be stupid.
>here are billions of Muslims in the world are they right?
I don't think all their beliefs are right, but that doesn't mean everything they say about Muhammad was fiction, and if I am studying Muslims then I certainly would be concerned with what they believed and when.
>the gospels are a product of the second century.
There were certainly second century additions but with the exception of John I don't see this as a mainstream view.
>just admit that you WANT mark to be written in 70. that’s all this is.
Actually I would be more satisfied with a later date like the 80's but most Historians date it to about the time shortly after the fall of the Temple so I go with that.
Lots of them since it was a common name, but since he uses names and events that are also mentioned in Acts then its safe to assume he is talking about the same people.
Ill have to look into some of his writing or lectures. Again, don't see any reason not to consider him a scholar seeing as he has done it professionally for decades.
much more reasonable of a response than I expected

What's this so-called "gap" referring to? The church was persecuted by Catholicism and others for a long time, from the 4th century down to the reformation era, and then by various Protestant paedobaptist groups.

What do you expect of white people living in Africa?
Killing foreigners wouldn't have saved them and a lot of their foreign policy was based on propping up client states on their borders that denied the ANC sanctuary.

The problem is that the people causing problems for them were the same ones their lifestyle depended on, that's a problem you can't kill your way out of. (At least in modern times with modern weaponry, was different in the middle ages)
Wtf? China is NazBol?
Cuba and North Korea were backed by major powers unlike South Africa. Whenever they were pushed their powerful friends pushed back, people learned to stay away. South Africa was abandoned, probably because there wasnt any reason to keep it around unlike Korea and Cuba which were boarding on enemy territory.
You can't run a state forever when you disenfranchise 80% of the population. NK survives because it's homogeneous.

Dhul-Qarnayn, having journeyed to the ends of the world, meets "a people who scarcely understood a word" who seek his help in building a barrier that will separate them from the people of Yajuj and Majuj who "do great mischief on earth". He agrees to build it for them, but warns that when the time comes (Last Age), Allah will remove the barrier.

>My Lord commanded me not to throw pearls before swine.
This is the precise reason why I will never, under any circumstance, refer to you people as "Christians." You are further away from God, more inclined towards hell, than Muslims.
Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
>Even in the Bible it talks about heresies, which is something that is also brought up countless times from the early Christians. Why is this?
Simple, because the road that leads to destruction is broad. Unsaved people will struggle to grasp anything that is of the Lord since they refuse to obey the truth. To them it all seems like foolishness. Paul even mentions this very thing in 1 Corinthians 2:13-14. So they just start making stuff up and trying to get a cult together, not realizing how obvious it is that they're wrong to anyone that's saved.

>Of course the problem of Vietnam especially thorny for the American man who is registered or is subject to registration for conscription. Unlike the idle women who oppose the war, the American man must put himself at hazard either on the field of battle or by becoming a fugitive from the law. To him I say: enlist now. If he has the means he should seek to enter officer training, but above all else he should enlist and ready himself for combat.
>The war will proceed with or without him, but if, as we are assured by our press, it is an unjust war, the injustice can be softened, the national mistake redeemed only by the presence of just men on the field of action. He may vote for peace, write for peace, beg for peace from his foxhole just as well as he can from his university dormitory, but only in combat can he tend to his enemy's wounds, direct his fires to minimize the cost to civilians, and counsel those around him or ideally those in his command to act with honor. God is with these men, though he may be with their enemy as well. The 'dodger' of the draft has no moral standing, as he has resigned from the basic duty of his manhood - to fight - and is content to let men he does not know die and kill in his stead.

>do what I tell you or your a gay pussy
The measure of you making small 'differences'.
You listed some individualistic moments of good soldiers stopping atrocities rather than any evidence of systemic changes.
The same slight effectiveness could be claimed for someone that protests on the homefront and seeks organizational or political power in doing so.
If the measure is the small gains you can make towards peace and honor, then its the same between both.
"Systemic" changes are introduced by the actions of people. You said that it is impossible to affect the front - I pointed out that that is wrong. If you want ethics in war, then go be ethical in the war. Simple as. Staying at home and complaining about ethics without having to actually do anything about it is easy.
And if you want no war at all?
No one has ever ended a war by fighting on the front.
The changes made are small in scope within the grander view of the conflict. Trying to end it, as meek as you may be, does more than being a part of the machine and killing the enemy in a kind way.

Why is it that neopagans can never answer a single question. They can only attack Christians, and poorly at that. It's almost like they have no solid doctrine or beliefs and have to rely on avoiding this fact by going on the offensive at all times.
Critical theory involves constant criticism but it never involves proposing what the truth actually is.

Imagine for a momment if /his/ was like OP, shit son, I salute you OP, you're a pretty cool guy.
It's actually pretty ridiculous that he would go down there to show everyone that he is the way, when it would be obvious to everyone that it's true, and then they could just repent. But everyone born after that just has to believe some book wasn't made up by some dudes, or they go get tortured forever.

How do I fill out a complaint form?
Jesus didn't exist. He's just a ridiculous made up magic jew.

Okay. The New Testament is sex negative and Paul only ever permits it between a husband and wife if they cannot control themselves.

The LGBT movement is essentially sex positive. They believe people should have sex with whoever and however they please.

So how do LGBT Christians reconcile this? Paul says to marry if you can’t control yourself, but his instruction also literally specifies that to avoid any ‘sexual immorality’ that each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband. This is the only time in the New Testament where sex is permitted as being okay.

> “Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.” I Corinthians 7:2

>sex negative
everyone needs to reject that term entirely. it's a buzzword phrase used to frame someone's view in a dishonest way. being against adultery is not a negative view of sex. there is nothing wrong with sex within marriage for the purpose of bringing forth new life
holy redditspacing batman
To be fair he was only saying this about sexual relations between men and women. The Bible is silent on men having sex with men, etc. At least outside the practice of pagan worship ritual. Barring that, there's no rules against constant gay sex. Same with masturbating.
