Funny that Doublestar calls people fools. Hilarious.
And "Controlling Forces": if you knew anything you'd know that our government is controlled by religious retards like you. They have no interest in immorally suppressing your religion. What the government teaches in school is proven scientific fact and the accompanying scientific models and theory.

I almost thought this thread was dead. Obviously that was wishful thinking.

I wonder just what is so thrilling about this question "What do you think God has instored for his people?" First of all, it isn't grammatically correct. Second, "instored" isn't even a word. Third, there is no god, and; Fourth, he most certainly doesn't own any people.
Compelling? Exciting, thrilling, refreshing? No. Stupid. The question is stupid, and I don't answer stupid questions. Could I answer it? Why would I bother?
And Doublestar, I really hope you actually mean "eunuch" as in neutered male. I don't want your genes spreading anywhere.

Historical fact: Jesus did indeed live and die in the areas claimed in the Bible.
That area was at that time under occupation by the Roman Empire. The Government which existed in Israel was in exile.
Jesus' line decended directly from David, which is commonly acknowledged. What is usually ignored though was the fact that Jesus was also the heir to the throne of Israel.
He was known to be a Rabbi, which would mandate that he must have had a wife (Mary Magdalen) and most likely at least one child (some speculate Barrabas--his life was spared by the people to perpetuate the royal line. Ref: "Holy Blood, Holy Grail", by Baigent, Leigh and Lincoln).
What is known additionally to every culture in the world EXCEPT that of Christians, was that from age 12 to age 30 Jesus toured the known world, learning from and teaching to all the Masters of the major religions of the world. The knowledge He accumulated from these travels was taught to his apostles in depth, in secret, allowing them to maintain the Christian teachings underground and survive the persecution of the Romans.
In the 4th Century, Emperor Constantine decided he liked Christianity and made it the official religion of the Roman Empire. Before bestowing it upon the people of Rome, though, he knew he had to sanitize it. He couldn't tolerate millions of Roman citizens running around with the secrets of eastern Mysticism which would have allowed them to easily defy Roman authority. So he convened the Niocene Council to go thru all the existing Christian writings and decide what the world's future Christians would believe.
A good 98% of Christian Writings were buried or destroyed, writings such as the recently rediscovered Dead Sea Scrolls, the Apocrypha and many more. The movie "Stigmata" was a good illustration of the Church's attitude towards people who wish to reveal these hidden scriptures--in this case the Gospel of St. Thomas. And it is a matter of historical record that belief in reincarnation was defeated by a single vote.
So they "cleaned up" the Christian Religion--GELDED it in fact, taking away from it anything which would give its practitioners any real power or sense of responsibility over their own lives. What they left in was the moral philosophies, and the guilt and fear, insuring it would remain a viable tool for the Roman government to control its people.
Today, you see the results. The Catholic Church and others, being given the requirement of Chastity, for instance, without the disciplines of Eastern meditation and yoga which would have helped the priesthood to re-channel their sexual energies, ended up with an epidemic of child abuse. They advocate abstinance from birth control, producing famine in the third world.
And of course, as illustrated perfectly by people like Doublestar, they encourage people to trade in their brains for a Bible.
I am, and will remain, what you might call a "Pre-Niocene" Christian. And Doublestar, you embarass yourself. You have deteriorated into a fine example of what the legendary late Father Malachi Martin was talking about when he so succinctly stated, "Satan is alive and well in the Vatican".
You got sucked in by the heirs of ancient Rome, guy.
I pity you.
You wanna take me on in debate, feel free. But do it in private email--don't burden people here with your drivel. They know better.
"The true Church of God is within you."
(Ch.1 v.1, Gospel of St. Thomas)

So the perfect man had a son that was a murderer? I have heard of the idea that there is a bloodline of Jesus still around to this day, but I didn't know that Barrabas was speculated to be Jesus' son.
The Apocrypha wasn't taken out until the 17- or 1800s. If you look at the original KJV, the Apocrypha is there. And the Dead Sea Scrolls were buried in the first century AD.
You do have some valid points, too. But can't you let a thread that was dead for three months stay in the tomb?
