I've defined humility for you before. You've yet to show that you have any.Still not able to describe what humility is.
Let me know when you get it worked out.
You're going to have to show me.I've defined humility for you before. You've yet to show that you have any.
Why can't you just be honest and admit your mistake? Things are only going to get worse for you if you keep digging your heels in to defend your ego.
What was this previous consensus on historiography?Well, there you have it. Biased worldviews which reject previously accepted history.
You need to read up on the history of your religion.Perhaps. I don't know, as I wasn't there. Nor, I'm guessing were you.
In 5 BCE Herod the Great was king of Judaea. Augustus had nothing to do with the internal affairs of Herod's kingdom.The irony is that God used a pagan emperor around 5 BCE to achieve the goal of getting Jesus' parents to Bethlehem,
Incorrect. Theology is a discipline that studies the nature of the divine and which more broadly looks at religious beliefs across all theistic religions.Ironic. Theology is simply the study of God.
I don't see any reason why I should believe you.I did. Repeatedly.
Actually I did.No, you did not.
I think you'll find that the majority of Christians do just that.More importantly, why aren't you taking the time to do your own research, investigation, reading, learning, applying, testing, etc.... to actually find out?
We who follow Jesus don't "trust" anything because someone tells us to! that you think otherwise speaks more to your lack of understanding that it does the word, and idea of trust.
We who follow Jesus Trust because we've taken the time to do what God has said--- read, learn, apply, test, etc...--- and have found that God is real. Not because we think so, but because he's demonstrated himself to us, as real, and knowable.
So..... why on earth would you not take the time to read, learning, apply, test, etc.....?
I have found that in general most Christians are good, honest, and humble. However, there are a few that are so deeply dishonest that they don't really behave in a way you would expect of a follower of Jesus.
I absolutely agree.I have found that in general most Christians are good, honest, and humble. However, there are a few that are so deeply dishonest that they don't really behave in a way you would expect of a follower of Jesus.
These "pretend" Christians are just using the religion as a cover. They use the religion, and the goodwill people grant Christians as a way of claiming moral superiority. They then lie and cheat, and attempt to get away with it by saying "I'm a Christian so I am good person." hoping that it give them an excuse for their behaviour.
These false Christians really are some of the most morally disgusting people. Not only are they willing to lie and cheat, they double down on their immoral behaviour by trying to use the good nature of most Christians as a cover for their behaviour.
