Morality is not determined by the church you attend nor the faith you embrace. It is determined by the quality of your character and the positive impact you have on those you meet along your journey
LOL, white Jesus looks more and more like a Ralph Lauren model everytime I see a new rendering.
So funny. The bible clearly describes how Jesus look, Wooly hair, burnt toned skin. Last I checked, wooly is tight curls, and burnt is black.
Can you please provide chapter and verse? Or are you thinking of Hermione Granger? Lol
There are no "Jesus" eyewitness reports in the bible. The gospels were written long, long after the non-facts, and there is not a scintilla of historical evidence for the existence of such a character. None whatsoever.
LOL That is funny!
May i add, when was the last time you heard of ANYONE coming out of the middle east with names like Mathew, Luke, John, Paul, David..?...and to think that their name for their deity is NOT English. Somebody is really comfused....
David (pronounced Da-VEED) is a very Israeli name.
I am in my mid fifties and growing up in small town East Texas (I know!), my parents had a friend whose last name was David (pronounced dah-veed).
"David" as a surname is not unheard of. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_David
Thank you for updating me ....funny how i am 63 and white and that i had never heard before. Is there a Jo Haun in Isralie too...? But thanks for the insite non the less.....
Hey John, research works, and doesn't hurt. All the names you questioned are Anglicized versions of either Hebrew or Greek. Matthew the Apostle (Hebrew: מַתִּתְיָהוּ Mattithyahu or מתי Mattay, "Gift of YHVH"; Greek: Ματθαῖος Matthaios; Luke: (Ancient Greek: Λουκᾶς, Loukãs) is one of the Four Evangelists—the four authors of canonical Gospels of Jesus Christ. Luke was a native of the Hellenistic city of Antioch in Syria;John the Apostle (Aramaic: Yohanan Shliha; Hebrew: יוחנן בן זבדי Yohanan Ben Zavdai; Koine Greek: Ἰωάννης; Latin: Ioannes; c. AD 6 – c. 108); Paul the Apostle (Greek: Παῦλος Paulos; c. 5 – c. 67), originally known as Saul of Tarsus (Hebrew: שאול התרסי; Greek: Σαῦλος Ταρσεύς Saulos Tarseus).
Thanks Nik, i recently found this site and you have informed me of my short comings, my apologies, and my thanks. But my skepticism of religion will continue to be strong.....
John, no big deal. I also do not believe in religion(s) or the existence of some omnipotent "God" person who watches over us. I am Greek and so have some historical interest in these people. Please come back to this site, there's usually some interesting stuff going on.
Thanks Nik for the hospitality. ....on my side of the pond, me being a Yank, i am usually met with belligerence on postings. To many folks walking around with an 8th grade education here in the states i think. So thanks....courtesy rules.Yes, i do enjoy this site. It falls inline with much of my thinking...becoming a morning habit...

7:59 Skepticism of religion? DUMP THAT SHIT NOW!
Years ago a friend brought back two of those 3-D postcards from the Vatican gift shop. Tilt them one way, Jesus weeps under his crown of thorns, move them slightly, his eyes are open....Best part, one was a blonde, the other brunette- you got to choose! Great retail strategy!Wild Tortoise
And confusing as hell when you're buzzed!!! My mother in law has one whose eyes follow you across the room, but my fave is "Jedi Jesus" with the rays of holy shooting out.
My former boss collects kitchy Jesus memorabilia and her office held quite a collection of the cheesiest Jesus stuff you've ever laid eyes on. I bought her a Jesus wall clock off Etsy; the hands of the clock were Jesus's arms and when the hands were at 6pm it looked like he was grabbing his crotch!The religious people at work always thought the boss was deeply christian, not realizing that she displayed all this crap in a mocking and not worshipful manner. It was always hilarious to be in her office when someone else would be complimenting her on one of her "treasures" and having to keep a straight face.
Don't feed the trolls! It just goes directly to their thighs.
