Oauuu, it sounds so much like Catholic Church in the Dark Ages in Europe.

I've come up with a new religion - The Church of the Recovered Alcoholic God. It is the only religion that makes sense of the contradictory gods of the New and Old Testament. In our religion, God is drinking heavy for centuries, going around wasting people left and right - raining frogs on them, sending pillars of fire for laughs, empowering his guys to slay thousands with ass-jawbones and trumpets, death and destruction everywhere, a typical asshole drunk. Later, he miraculously sobers up, and starts doing his "Twelve Steps of Recovery", going around forgiving people and raising the dead and such, I mean, he's now a totally different guy, who wants everyone to like him, and the only close call is the water-into-wine trip, where he almost fell off the wagon. His sobriety is so strong, he's still laying on the Love stuff, even with his hands nailed to a tree limb. But like all religions, the news isn't all good, in the Book of Revelation, he threatens to start drinking again. Our only hope is to pray he stays sober.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Saw an interesting 1-hour piece last night entitled "The Pagan Christ". They've drawn up around 180 parallels between the story of Jesus - from immaculate conception all the way to crucifixion and resurrection - and the story of Horus and Isis from Egyptian religions; 2,000 years B.C. It lays out a fairly compelling case for what happened between 2,000 B.C. and around 500 A.D. to establish Christianity as we know it. I bet the romans wish they would have destroyed that damned Rosetta Stone.

In short, the literal word of the Bible as it applies to Jesus? Yeah, it's bunk. But it's great literature, to be certain. And of course, the people who change the combinations on the locks to their brains once a week on Sundays, will have a very hard time indeed coming to terms with this stuff.

Yep
The old rehash/rename ploy
I was a bit crestfallen not to have realized that the Christian Christmass celebtations were an almost direct replacment for the previous pagen celebration of the winter solstice.
so what does that tell us?
and yes God indeed must indeed have a sense of homour
else I imagine we would ALL have been fried long ago

I think it depends on whether he is drinking wine or beer. Wine makes him mellow and humor-seeking. Beer makes him mean. I have scripture to prove this.

They blaspheme the Alcoholic God everytime they do the wine thing. I have Scripture to prove it.

My favorite was Henry David Thoreau, who was asked on his death bed if he "wanted to make peace with Jesus." Thoreau replied in a small raspy voice "I didn't know we had quarrelled."

You are correct it actually says:

"Mark 3:28-29: "I tell you the truth, all the sins and blasphemies of men will be forgiven them. But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin."

Also, what kind of god has no sense of humor. Really, now? Unforgiving for jokes about HIM? How insecure is THAT?

I would think filtering out all the bullshit prayers for football victories and longer penises [peni?] would be more taxing.

One would think that maybe KILLING or Theft or Bearing False Witness or one of those other Commandments might get his panties in a wad worse that humor [humour to our Church of England parishioners].
Don't shoot the messenger. I can't help it that he is a jealous God. He even says that he HATES the winking of an eye!

All sins are equal according to the Bible. It says that a thief is the same as a robber and a lier. Sin is sin. However blasphemy against the holy spirit is the only unforgiveable one.

There will be alot of "good" people in hell. Unless you ask for forgiveness of your sins and accept Jesus into your heart you have no hope for salvation. You can not save yourself through good works.

Actually all these pagan religions and theories are the copycats. The story of Jesus is in the Old testament. The entire old testament prophecies all about Jesus' coming, how he will act, his birth, death , baptism, and resurrection. The old testament FAR predates the religions of Egypt circa 2000BC.
