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?

Although I tend to be verbose, for understanding's sake I rephrase what people say into my own words to see if we truly do agree. Color me a happy camper. Agreement is rare these days!

Religion, politics, sex and money,

by oneamazingwriter In reply to Agreement is damn rare

are the four topics of controversy that keep debates going among married couples, so why not in the world as a whole? When people find an area they can agree upon and build on that, both can learn, but when they take opposing sides and fight against one another rather than for fighting for a mutual understanding, usually what occurs is a stalemate (and in marriage you can take that literally ).
I like debate as long as there are cooling off periods for "warring" parties to remember that we are all in this thing called life together, and that it's good to take a break and enjoy that we CAN relate at all!

disclaimer: if I am going to continue to post at length I will not be editing posts, so all will have to deal with my dyslexic typing!

or husbands are asking when they debate is do you love "it" (regardless of what "it" is) more than me?

eidt: after saying I wouldn't edit I put a / in the title of this reply...since, obviously, as I was writing it, I coudn't decide which word to use

I LOVE your new AV. Adorable!

Do you think TR would pay me to start a Beth Landers column? LOL

Compromise is a good rule of thumb, Jelli. You do something that she likes and ask her to join you in your computer interest. Sometimes that means that a man goes to the opera and a woman goes to a wrestling match and both go "Ick!" for a time, but you'd be surprised how wanting to learn to be close can help one another acquire new interests neither one would have considered. (That'll be $5.00 'cuz I work cheap! LOL)

One: Compromise

by Jellimonsta In reply to Agreement is damn rare

Thanks for the props on my avatar (my 3 yr old daughter). :)

Actually, my wife does not have much interest in the computer (luckily I am not a gamer), but we usually find that going on walks, hiking, or rock climbing are some of the few hobbies we do together. :)

Well, obviously we have a few more that I am not going to mention on here! :8}

HUH?

Er...what do you mean by that? Christianity is the largest religion on earth

Mark what Planet are you living on? Christianity is a relatively small religion when it comes to Global Population followers the reality is that the followers of Allah vastly outnumber Christians even when you allow the non practising ones.

Time to face facts Christianity is a small religion for small minds who are unwilling to look at the big picture on a per capita basis there would be as many Buddhists as there are Christians though by their very nature that haven't spread themselves all over the planet as they don't need to force people to join their religion unlike the Christians who blindly have been attempting to convert as they go and look at the mess that they have made of things.
