Boy, she told me...
His argument was as follows: "It is blasphemy to use the Lord`s name in vain (unstated), and the Lord was not named "Jesus Christ" as commonly accepted. Therefore it is not blasphemy to say "Jesus Christ."His argument however suffers from the fact that it is improperly formatted.The format was basically: a is b, b is not c, so c is not a. I could say "it is a crime to commit arson, burglary is not arson, therefore burglary is not a crime."An argument is bad if the form is bad. His form was bad, so his argument was bad.
2000 years of Evil, Death and Destruction.
even IF Jesus is not is first name "Christ" was never used as a last name, he is THE Christ, meening "son of gon" or something like that.enyway his name is Jesus of Nazaret it might not be his real first name but it`s how we refer to it thus making it a blasphemy AND using "Christ" in vein is a blasphemy, like is you`d say "DAMN POPE, I hit my small toe"
there now the guy looks even more stupid... and I look neardy+christian... anyway this is one of the WORST relegions there is!
Historically, Jesus Christ was a real man--he was an apocolyptic preacher who followed John the Baptist, and there is no proof that he was divine/holy, or really was the son of God--he was just another preacher. He tended to stay away from big cities because no one there believed his words, and when he spoke to farmers he made simple analogies they could understand (like comparing faith to a mustard seed).
There is really no proof he was the "son of God"--but that`s where faith comes in.
When you`re stupid and ignorant, shut up so other people won`t know. What 3 men are you referring to? The Bible says "wise men from the East", it never mentions 3 of them, and since they were probably Chinese kings (since the Bible says it took them two years to get there), there were probably hundreds of people in their retinue.
> Then when jesus was old enough to think
Well he was approaching 2 when they got there, most kids are thinking well before that.

I know right?
Jesus (Yeshua) means in Hebrew "salvation". There are two common translations of the name, based on meaning rather than sound:
"You will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call his name Jesus; that is, “God saves”. (Luke 1:30-32)
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet [Isaiah], saying, “Behold, the virgin shall be with Child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel,” which is translated “God with us.” (Matthew 1:21-23, citing Isaiah 7:14)
Secondly, no-one had surnames back then; Christ is not a surname.
"We have found the Messiah, which is, being interpreted, the Christ." (John 1:41)
"I know the Messiah, the Christ, comes." (John 4:25)
However, the matter of his divinity is still questioned. Some believe him to be wholly divine, some divine and human, some a prophet, and some just a human.
Christ, may I also add, is derived from the Greek for "Messiah".
Rofl...then again, am I >.> ???You only see pixels in the replacement of me.
Though, what bugs me is that he is saying that language has a theology to it.It just is. If you say "Jesus", then you`re probably thinking of the dude who died on the Cross.
Except for the undeniable fact that he was a real person who actually lived. Whether he was the Son of God is a matter of faith, but your historical ignorance and stupidity are astounding.
Did we never learn to cite our finds? Especially when the original picture has the citation right there for you?
It was formalised in the middle ages, primarily to make taxation easier to impose. Jews ~2000 years ago did refer to lineage, though. In a formal context, something like `Yeshua, son of Yosef` would fit well enough, which would sort of be Jesus Josephson in English.
Incidentally, the picture is wrong. `Jesus` is not a Greek translation of Yeshua. It`s an English mistransliteration of a Greek transliteration of a Hebrew name, possibly passing through Latin on the way.
Also, `Christ` is a title ("anointed one") and that`s also a transliteration (from Greek to English). It has nothing to do with anyone`s name.
My stab at an English version:
Yeshu the Anointed.
Then I`ll laugh, when you check under your car each morning, you godless pooe ;-)
That practice came about in the middle ages, a bit after Jesus/Josh`s time. I think Jewish people were only forced to get surnames when they came to Europe.
wow blkstallion thanks for taking my joke :)
Christ comes from the Greek "Christos" (Spelled incorrectly, my Ancient Greek isn`t great) which means "Anointed One" or "The Messiah".
Basically it`s a title. It`s not a name. "Jesus the Messiah".
However, here`s the thing. A name is anything by which something is called. Most people can`t pronounce Baalthazaq properly (Bael tha za(arabic qaf)) or my real name ((Glottal stop) m r) doesn`t mean they`re not talking about me.
Basically, he is called Jesus. That is his name. It wasn`t his name in the 1st century, but it is now. (Unless you`re Muslim, in which case he is called Easa).
Jesus was Jewish (If he actually existed).
WAAHHHH WAHHHHHH WAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH WAHH WAHHHH it -is- humour so stop crying
Arguing this precisely is just silly, lol.
but if someone yelled "Hey, Michelle!" you wouldn`t turn round and look at them
because its not your name
and the *interesting* religion lesson
btw I heard that Yeshua Ben Yosef is jesus`s real name
I liked the effort though
