The Gospel of Judas:Irenaeus notes: They produce a fictitious history of this kind, which they style the Gospel of Judas. There are other Gnostic sects associated which begin really in the garden of Eden where the serpent (a Musical Enchanter) wholly seduced Eve so that "Cain was OF that wicked one." Cain is derived from "A Musical Note" and his family fathered all of the COMMERCIAL and "magical" practices to steal other people's property.

J.H.Garrison: "There is God and Jesus: all the rest is opinion."
Alfred T. DeGroot: Those who use the Bible "as it has been taught" are defined as SECTARIANS or CULTS while those who are HIGH CHURCH (Catholic) are called CHURCHES.
Rubel Shelly: There are seven facts about Jesus: Outside the essence of the gospel, there are other features that reflect our history and consensus interpretations of the larger biblical message.
Biblical Christianity is not a religion but a DISCIPLINE: 'Go make disciples, NOT, go make ritualists." Therefore, those whorepudiate the only Christian documents for 2,000 years are anti-Christian by definition.
Therefore, our reviews are not personal attacks but represent the BIBLE BELIEVER'S rebuttal of those who have MOVED BEYOND the Bible.

Today's Sermon Today 12/23/01. Did Mary Live as a Publicly Sexually Shamed Woman?
"Liberal literary criticism allows each community the right to re-write Scripture. The canon (not necessarily of biblical texts, but at least in the meanings of those texts) is not closed.
"It is difficult to know whether Fish intended this as a by-product, but the idea of authority resting in the interpretive community gave rise to narrative theology-- a theology which simply affirms a given community's right to come up with its own interpretation, or to "write" its own new biblical text. Narrative theology gave rise to various narrative communities-- hence, the arrival of liberation and feminist theologies.
"Narrative theology does not recognize any absolute truth or meaning in a text. Because Buber is the founder, most narrative theology, especially in Jewish circles, is related to Auschwitz."

These are the
essentials of Christian
faith. It is this core message about Jesus that we
essence of the gospel,
When the kingdom did not come as Christ promised those who wrote the Bible went their own ways. John, for instance, hooked up with a Greek philosopher and borrowed the LOGOS concept and used it to explain Jesus Christ. However, either unknown or ignored is the fact that the LOGOS concept begins where John places it: in Genesis. Too bad that scholars miss the fact that DABAR is the Hebrew word.
