" . . .I have seen the Gnostic gospels and their origin is
questionable. . . . "
The same can be said for the many versions of "The Bible".
" . . . Ive seen the dead sea scrolls and some of these others. . . "
Funny that we both have seen them, yet you refuse to acknowledge what they say... Unless of course you mean that you simple say the crumply parchments called "The Dead Sea Scrolls" but have no real idea what the scribblings on them are...
Can you even read Aramaic? (If so, tell me exactly what the aramaic in my signature says)
" . . . No idea what you mean by what was going on in the days of Jesus. . . "
That is self evident when viewing your messages...
" . . As to Blind faith. I dont know who came up with that phrase. Its not in the Bible. Granted that Faith is the substance of things not seen, but that doesnt mean you have to believe things blindly . . . "
First of all, The Bible and Webster's Dictionary are not to sole sources of modern language... "Blind Faith" means refusing to aknowledge or the avoidance of "fact", evidence and reasoning...
