Well, let's read a passage in John (5:53-58)
"Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life."
I'm marvelling at his words at this very minute. Sounds like Jesus believed he could make vampires. No blood for me today, Jesus, I'll have a V-8 though if its not too much trouble.
Let's try Matthew 21: 18-19
"Now in the morning, as he returned into the city, and when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforth for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away."
God was surprised that there weren't any figs...when it wasn't the right season (Mark 11: 13)...and then in a temper tantrum curses the tree??? Wow, what a sage! More elegant than Shakespeare, for sure. The other day, Ray was blathering on about how bananas and other fruit (i.e. creation) proves the existence of the creator Jesus/Father/Holy Ghost. Yet Jesus doesn't even know what the average farmer living in the region knows...and He is supposed to be the omniscient creator of the universe! Or his son...whatever. In Ray's defense, it is easy to see why he would think Jesus so elequent-he probably hasn't read very many other books. We should chip in and send him a few (like The God Delusion).
