Re: Was Judas a hero and most trusted disciple, or a traitor?

Was Judas a hero and most trusted disciple, or a traitor? ... Regards DL Judas was set up. God as an omnipotent being could have stopped him. God as an omniscient being knew what he was doing.

I ignore John in all things historical - when we have the Synoptics relating the same events, and which were earlier and so more accurate per events on the ground.
There is no history in a book with talking serpents and donkeys.

Re: Was Judas a hero and most trusted disciple, or a traitor?

FTPOV, Jesus was too much of a coward to tell his Temple authorities to bite him when turning himself in. Nonsense! To be crucified and "resurrected" was the ultimate trick to fool the naive and gullible that how has echoed for 2k years, he only hung there for 6 h when you LEAST hang there for a we...

Is the knowledge of good and evil, good or evil?

Is the knowledge of good and evil, good or evil? For you, me, and Adam to answer this question; we need the knowledge of good and evil. Adam may have needed what he was denied by Yahweh to know if the tree of the knowledge of all things, is good or evil to eat from. As scriptures say, he was mentall...

Is Yahweh breaking an objective moral tenet?

Is Yahweh breaking an objective moral tenet? I have found few examples of an objective moral tenet but think that, --- the good of the many, outweighs the good of the few, --- to be an objective moral tenet. It seems correct in all situations. You might disagree with an example where this tenet is n...

Re: God given rights. Do you really have any?

Do "other" people find it a coincidence that some people's views of 'God given rights' align with the government, or with the culture, of the country they are in? Not I as our thinking is formed by the societies we live in. Regards DL Yes our individual thinking is formed by the societies we each i...

Re: God given rights. Do you really have any?

We have instinct given rights, via man the social animal - an instinct for what is right and what is not right. we have a personal duty to strive to do right by that instinct and to foster any government that also affirms that natural law right. and to remove any gov that does not. I don't know if ...

He was a victim of Jesus's manipulation!
I agree.

Re: Was Judas a hero and most trusted disciple, or a traitor?

I think Judas lost faith in Jesus as a man that would kick ass and remove the Romans, and eventually chose to sell him out when it looked like he would fail. he betrayed his friend, so in my book that make him a traitor. imo. Traitors do not feel enough remorse to hang themselves. only Matt says th...

God given rights. Do you really have any? We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Re: God given rights. Do you really have any?

God given rights. Do you really have any? There is no such thing as, "rights." The concept, "rights," always implies someone has claim to something just because they were born. A claim on an education, or healthcare, or an income, or freedom, or protection from crime. Everybody has their own view o...

Re: Was Jesus aware of being Yahweh?

I believe "messiah" means simply a priest-king sort of character who leads his people out of troubled times to better times.It does not necessarily signify any supernatural status. The original Jewish myth does. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrDGgKunPsY To read myths literally has the reader neve...

[

if you are a Gnostic Christian as you have claimed for the 13 yrs i've known you, why do you not worship Sophia as the Mother Goddess?

Jesus' and YHWH mom.
I am not an idol worshiper the way Christians are.

Why would you or I want to idol worship anything or anyone?
