@dyslexia,
If I want to give a thumbs up to a post...I post the thumbs up by making a favorable comment.

Only my personal opinion...but this "thumbs up" or "thumbs down" thing is absurd.

Because I just know it, Frank.
So...first you say it was a fact...when I challenged you on that, you said it was a guess...and know you are saying it is a fact again.

Looks like you've decided not to be serious.

I don't blame you.
Actually, Frank. I thought it would be obvious to you. In fact, Jesus himself said " . . . the Father is greater than I am. " (John 14:28)

Yeah. I just give thumbs up for the heck of it.

So you are saying that because the guy who authored the gospel of John said this...you can say with certainty that a GOD exists...and that Jesus is NOT that GOD.

Wow!

That is one hell of a bit of reasoning.

Any chance you would like to explain how it works...although I probably would expect better results asking how an Esher staircase works!

Well, if a person claims to believe the Bible, he or she should give credence to 2 Timothy 3: 16. "All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight. . ."

I have no problem with the Bible's claim to consistency.

And the Esher staricase works because it is not a photograph.

I don't care one way or the other on that, Neo...but if you are going to say something is a fact just because you read it in the Bible...you are being ridiculous.

I have no problem with that claim either, Neo. I gets lots of laughs out of it. In fact, anyone with any reading skills at all should laugh their butts off at that notion.

Neo would do well to learn the acronym "IMO". He comes across as interpreting the Bible just so. He probably doesn't mean to do that, IMO.

@neologist,
I'm not sure why you are playing this game, Neo...but Tycoon if you are still tuned in...listen up.

Neo, you wrote:
Quote:
The fact is that Jesus is not God.


There is NO way that is expressing opinion. You were stating it as a fact.

When I questioned you on it, you wrote:

Quote:
Just an educated guess, Frank.


So I asked you why you didn't just write, “It is my guess that Jesus is not God.”

And you responded,
Quote:
Because I just know it, Frank.


And now you are protesting,
Quote:

So what is this game, Neo?

Something from the playground?

Are you saying that your arguments lack logic...so you are going to pretend that you are just fooling around?

Jesus couldn't sin. His agent had a tight lid on that sort of thing.

@Frank Apisa,
We seem to be approaching this from a different set of axioms. The topical question, IMO, presumes the validity of the Bible.

The question of whether or not the Bible is God's word probably belongs in a different thread.

@neologist,
You are absolutely correct, Neo. IMO. The thread title is, Would it have been possible for Jesus to have sinned?

The premise that Jesus existed had already been established by the thread title. Frank is getting beyone the scope of the topic. IMO.

no matter my opinion (for I have none) Franks scope is cosmological. I once kicked frank in the face as he lay on the sidewalk in NYC and he won't let me forget it.
