Actually, it is YOU Gaetan, who asserted that society should not use money because Jesus told his disciples not too. But Jesus later instructed them to use money and to sell their cloaks if necessary, to get money to buy a sword.

Do you even think before you make a response?

We all know here that the god of you fellows is Satan, not the God of Jesus.

Jesus has no god. He is god. Or is the bible wrong about that, too?

Satan is not a god, but a fallen angel who knows god intimately. Or is the bible wrong about that too?

No, he was invented by the same people who invented your god to control the masses. Actually, he was invented by Milton, and barely got a mention in the bible.

Then you should be able to have them fix climate change caused by religion. Can't the "djinns" and "aliens" and "fairies" and "gods" and "satans" you've invented just snap their fingers to make things happen?

You aren't just religiously imagining them, are you?

If you don't believe The Messiah Jesus even if some one rise from death you won't be convince. Rich that control the politiciens make profit from pollution and nothing will be done to limit the temperature change and money will lead us toward the end of the world.

Since you have never been there, and none of that is mentioned in your magic book, you are simply making that up.[?QUOTE]As commanded by your god in your magic book. You are now claiming god is wrong and only you are right.

Please quote the chapter and verse which describes such things. You can't because it isn't there to be cited. Once again, you are simply making it all up.

You really believe that bunch of hogwash?

Tell me Gaetan, what does the bible say will happen to anyone who alters the bible?

Let's put that to the test. Show me someone rising from the dead. Heck, just have your Jesus character regrow an amputated limb.

Just have your Jesus character/djinns/aliens/fairies/teddy bears/Harry Potter wish it to be fixed. Should be a small thing for someone who can rise from the dead.

Uless you're just making it all up again.

So the sign of someone rising from the dead is that they will have whale puke on them, on Easter Sunday?

That is utter nonsense. With or without his supposed sacrifice, their souls would have never known death. He was talking about his return to earth. And that he would do it during the lifetime of those who followed him. It was all a lie.

If the devil cut the head of your soul and throw it in the garbage you say you would never know death?

Souls are immortal. And, as noted, non-corporeal. Can't cut it off. Also, if the devil had my soul, that would mean that I've already shuffled off this mortal coil. So before the Devil would have access to my soul, I would have already tasted death.

By definition, no, your soul did not die. Remember the threat, that you will be punished forever in hell. If you could die, that would come as a relief.

When asked if they would see Jesus return to Earth, he said they would. Clearly, they did not. No greater liar that Jesus. Well, maybe his followers.

I would say that since neither your boogey man nor "souls" exist that it's simply a believer in a weird religion impotently making empty threats.

What would you say if Harry Potter threw your dilithium crystals into the crack of doom in Mordor? Would you still say that you don't believe in "The Force"?

Sorry, but you don't get to make up your own definitions. Doing so is dishonest, because it is a lie.


When Brother Cleophus James heard the disturbing sound of jingle jangles of a thousand lost souls, he was talking about those that survived the death of the body.


And I'll trust his interpretation of scripture over yours. He was, of course, the hardest working man in show business after all.

But Jesus told his disciples, as I pointed out, that they should take money with them and sell their cloaks if necessary, to buy a sword.

Where is your argument now?

Correction to my previous post. It's Luke 22:36 where Jesus tells the disciples to carry money and to purchase a sword (I presume with money).

When your body dies your spirit comes out of your body with his soul, when your soul dies your spirit comes out of the soul. If you go to haven your soul doesn't perish that the way i understand the words of Jesus.

But you said your body is your soul. The body is the soul or the soul is the body. So how does this add clarity?
