What??? - The Gospel According to Judas?

By DMambo ·
Located in a safe deposit box in Long Island (of all places!) the Gospel According to Judas has been translated. It reveals that Judas was making the ultimate sacrifice working in conjunction with Jesus to turn Him over to the Romans during Passover and to allow Jesus to shed His earthly mantle. Judas knew that he would be reviled throughout history for his actions, but did it because he loved Jesus.

How do you think this will affect the practice and teachings of Christianity?

as any Christian will tell you. :)

Not so long ago I started a discussion here as to whether the King James Bible was the "True" Word of God.

There are many people who insist that the KJV is the only valid translation. It would appear that the Holy Spirit made a special visit to earth in 1611 to personally oversee that translation: B-)

But I admit I have slept since then, It is believed that the gospel was written by Nicolaitans which were derided by the early church as heretics.

So I do not think there will be any effect.

You are bang on that it won't be accepted, according to some sources it is the gnostics who were putting out this alternative gospel...

By the way, the dead sea scrolls only contain OT texts, they were not NT writings. Found in the area of the Essene community, and they were from previous to Christ.

They weren't found in the Mediteranean basin, but on the banks of (you guessed it) the Dead Sea...

The scrolls validate the OT and Jewish writings...
The weren't in Greek as Dan Brown speculated, wrongly. I guess that is why it is called fiction...

IM breaking a promise to myself

by oneamazingwriter In reply to What??? - The Gospel Acco ...

to enter into any discussion on religion, so if you all beat me up, I deserve it, because I don't like breaking promises to anyone, especially me. That said:

Those who actually practice Christianity are few and far between and won't be affected one way or the other because they have made their decision and committment.

Those who instruct Christianity are already so divided that this is simply another controversial thing for someone to pick up on.

OK...pelt me...but please keep it water balloons. It's not my time to go to the cross as far as I know. I was born on that thing and it was faith that got me to climb down and have some joy in this life.

that you are in my life to keep me real! ROFL Check out the mess I made above on my last post after following a suggestion from you! Devil or angel, jd, you help me to follow my 11th commandment: Thou Shalt Not Take Thyself Or Life Too Seriously!
If I were a ballerina I have the sneaking suspicion that you would tie my shoelaces together. The problem there is that I would laugh and mess up the whole show!
Life: I am determined to "get" this thing while I am in it!

huh?

"Those who actually practice Christianity are few and far between"

Er...what do you mean by that? Christianity is the largest religion on earth, though there are many different sub-religions of it, so to speak. Catholicism, all the Protestant religions, etc. I will agree that many people call themselves Chritian but don't really have much of a clue what that means and don't really pay much attention to the teachings.

Yup

by oneamazingwriter In reply to huh?

There are those who practice religion as an intellectual exercise, or as a fellowship, like joining a fraternity. There are those who define themselves as one religion or another because that's what their family raised them to say. There are those who have an experience that causes them to make efforts to live in a certain way.

"I will agree that many people call themselves Chritian but don't really have much of a clue what that means and don't really pay much attention to the teachings." I just took a lot of words to say what you said. Correct me please if I am wrong. :)
