Whom are the others that I am quoting? Man is flawed, God is perfect. This understanding is why I quote the scriptures in my explanations because they are the Word of God. I've stated this relationship of authentic vs. counterfeit to varying degrees already I believe. I thought this would shed some light and begin the thinking process to go back and think how does this relate to history? There is nothing new under the sun. Cain was born before Abel, there were two Enochs, one born in the Cananite line and the other the Sethic. I am sorry if you do not see the correlation yet. That just validates the point made by messiah, "ye must be born again". To the best of my ability I can break things down in a somewhat "conceptual secular fashion". Only problem is the truth is deeper than that and you must see with spiritual eyes. Do not confuse religous with spiritual. There is a profound difference, but like with most things in a carnal frame of thinking it will be hard to comprehend.
:banghead: but u dont KNOW theyre the word of god, and i dont believe they are the word of god, so u cant use them as if theyre fact, they cant be used in factual debate.
but nobody else was talking about "the fake and the counterfeit" u just keep bringing it up because u cant address the initial point -is the jesus story just a replication of an older myth?
u keep saying the same, non topical crap[, "ye must be born again" were not discussing that u tit, just read and answer the above question
