An academic you are not, mutt! At least you should get yourself a dictionary.
By the way, you still have not answered my repeated question as to whether English is your native language.
> You don't think that scibes(sic) back in Christs(sic)
> day and afterword(sic) used poetic license?
R: Wow, mutt! Are “scibes” anything like scabs? It appears that you, like the madman muhammad, need to get yourself a scribe.
You already have made abundantly clear, “matt”, that you don’t know squat about history in general but, most crucially, you know nothing of church history, nor of God.
Unlike the madman muhammad who was totally illiterate (could neither read nor write) such was not the case for Apostle Luke, the physician, who wrote his Gospel exactly like a legal brief that could have stood in any Roman court. Nor, does your silly, extraneous remark apply to Apostle Paul, the former Pharisee, who was fluent in Hebrew and Greek, and who wrote virtually all of his epistles himself, except when he was chained to the wall, and even then, he read every word that was sent to the recipients of his epistles.
But, most importantly, “matt”, you have established beyond any shadow of doubt that you are spiritually dead. You do not have the Holy Spirit, and you do not know the living Word of God. You do not believe God nor know His power.
> How naive?
R: How blind you are, mutt!
> From the moment Jesus was dead and risen
> his word was subject to interpretion(sic) like(sic)
> Mohammed too.
R: Nevermind that my words have gone in your one ear and right straight out the other, God’s Word has fallen on your deaf ears.
REPEAT: (John 16:13-15): “When He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.”

R: Until you make the slightest little effort to study history, mutt, and to stop relying on spurious, gnostic texts (and such fictions as DaVinci Code) for your information, you will remain in the profound ignorance that you strut here for all to see.
Start by studying exactly who Eusebius was, and how he went about producing his 50 Bibles for Emperor Constantine.
> You don't ever quote the gospels according to Philip, James,

R: An academic you are not, “matt”!
Neither do I quote the “gospel of Dan Brown” which was produced out of the imagination of a non-Christian two millennia after Christ’s Advent. The same exact reasons pertain.
Do you really believe that Judas wrote the so-called “Gospel of Judas” two centuries after his death? Chuckle, chuckle... you really are a knucklehead, mutt.
And why, “matt”, don’t you say that I am “in keeping on scripture” with the Orthodox church or the Coptic Church? Is it because you know so little of history that you know too little to know how little you know? (That’s a rhetorical question! Look that up in your dictionary when you finally get one.)
> > It figures that you, a Born Again, would pick Sarh to prove
> > your point on Islam -- how easy is that for you?
R: My point was not about islam, “matt”, it was about your ignorance.
> All religions are loaded with traitors . For your anwser(sic)
> Sarh - their form of Judas - was a scribe of Mohammed who fell away
> from Islam for allowing Allah's word to be corrupted.
> Mohammed had him killed for it. Muslims simply say he was an
> infidel deserving death FOR corrupting Allah's word.
R: I see that you spent your absence from S&R Chat to go look up Sarh. But, you have misstated the facts, mutt. (For example, contrary to what you say here, the madman muhammad did not kill him any more than the people who put a death sentence on Salman Rushdie killed him. By the way, do you know who Rushdie is?) You need to go research more reliable sources, “matt”. The devil is totally unreliable, chuckle, chuckle...
> Like Sarh, I fell away too due to(sic) inconsist(sic) bible passages
> and sermonizing.
R: Go read what Sarh actually says about why he fled from the madman muhammad. Then, you will see that there is no parallel whatsoever between you and him.
> Faith? Prostelatized(sic) by men (Priests and
> those like you, Raphy) as flawed as you I? Yes, Raphy, you
> have your flaws too. Sorry, to burst your bubble. Hope your

R: Ah but, mutt, Christ Jesus is flawless. And, it is because of His righteousness, not mine, that I will spend eternity in Heaven.
> As for repenting, save it for Tom
> Cruise. Why don't you repent for your own hypocracy(sic)
> and contempt of others instead?
R: Tom Cruise? You are not condemned to hell for his sin, mutt, but for your own. It is your sin that condemns you to hell your very own sin.
God has such contempt for sin that He will not allow you into Heaven with it.
It is time for you to repent, “matt”,
to come clean, and to heed Christ Jesus.
