Then who?

Good question.

Hell if I know.

I infer certain things about The Creator's character, but, as he's absent, Inferences are all I got.
Good enough.

I think The Creator created, yeah.

I got no clue what he's up to nowadays.
As long as it is not Yahweh.

I do not like a creator that has to scrap the vast majority of his souls to the garbage, hell that is.

That would make him a p poor creator. Incompetent, in fact.

Re: I am my highest authority, judge and guide. Who is yours?

I sold to those like you for some years. If it moves, I can build it. And that's the crux of it. The builder/maker/inventor/creator mindset is at the core of the "creationism" idea. Which is why I label myself as a "constructivist". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constructivist_epistemology As a sid...

Re: I am my highest authority, judge and guide. Who is yours?

If you are asking me if I am a higher authority than you, I would say yes. I am not asking you that. Obviously from your perspective you are your own highest authority. And obviously from my perspective I am my own highest authority. What I am asking: form your perspective, are you a higher authori...

I am my highest authority, judge and guide. Who is yours?

I am my highest authority, judge and guide. Who is yours? As a Gnostic Christian, I follow the esoteric teachings of Jesus. Matthew 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man lo...

Re: Jesus was a Jew. Why do some Christians and Muslims hate Jews?

The "Jew", was just likely a generic term for those who wander. This is true, and was added to by myth scholars like Joseph Campbell. His description is more like wandering killers. An inherited and largely false rendering that persists in other than intellectual places. Everyone was a killer in th...

Re: Jesus was a Jew. Why do some Christians and Muslims hate Jews?

Yahweh chose to have the Jews and Romans sacrifice Jesus and thus the Jews hold no blame. Please allow me to add to this. In a sense, the way Rome wrote it, the Jews did take the rightful blame because Jesus was to be their tradition's sacrifice and suicide and no one else's. Jews were to be the on...
