Nice Argument About Christology

But seriously folks, who gives a rats ass?

He asked us to accept him as our saviour and to spread his word. Sounds OK by me. That's what I bought into.

It's interesting to see three sides of the Christology argument, all of whom have the same opinion, arguing fine semantic points to create a disagreement. Then they can kill each other with a clear conscience, at least they did 1,500 years ago.

Now the boys are into the unwinnable. Our little fights about DL schools are nothing compared to the WARS involving religion.

Christians are as willing to kill each other to prove how much they love God as are rats to get food.

I've also got the bottom of another theological debate - with aplogies to John - The Bird is the Word.

Christology is important to us Christians because it deals with the nature of Christ. If we don't know who Christ really is then we can't have faith in Him. There are many false Christ's, and that includes those who do not perceive the biblical Christ properly.

If the precise human/divine ratio was important, I'm sure it could be read in the Bible.

I know who Christ is through my bible and prayer, that's enough for me.

never forget there are so-called apocryphal gospels disposed of by church leaders as they were non-syn-optic (=readable side to side making sense ) like the 4 gospels they retained. There were at some point upto thirty different, equally accredited gospels (EG Mary's, Thomas', Judas', Magdalen's...) and some of these are still recognized by lesser denominations such as coptic christianity.
There were gospels telling of Jesus' many brothers; gospels arguing Jesus was not free from original sin because of himself, but because of Mary; gospels arguing Jesus asked Judas to betray him to fulfill his mission; gospels in which Jesus behaves rather like a conjurer or David Copperfield.
Big book of myths.
Always remember such gospels we ignore or even despise today were fully accredited for centuries.
Of course church leaders needed to shape the cult in the most coherent way allowed, much as another row of editing took place after the protestant reform, and many millenary traditions, EG cult of saints &angels, group of the most close saints etc, were espurgated to "make sense".
Eminently political moves.

Heretic Warning.


I am not entirely convinced that anything written by anyone named John belongs in the Bible. The Gospel is so much different than the other three and Revelation is purely odd.

Luke and Paul are d'men.
