    This is a common misconception that demonstrates a lack of understanding of the historical veracity of new testament (and indeed OT) texts. The message to be taken from the bible has been changed a lot, especially in the time before the bible was commonly available in languages other than Latin. People literally gave their lives so that we could have the bible translated into English, and other languages understood by "commoners". The established church wanted to control the message themselves, often for control purposes, or for financial purposes. Basically, bad people will even use a good thing to get what they want... But the bible itself has not been changed. And there is a key difference between the 4 gospels that we have, and the "other" gospels. Matthew/Mark/Luke/John were all written within a generation or so of Jesus' death. This is really important because when they began to circulate, there would have been plenty of people alive who could confirm or deny what happened. We also have original extracts that are dated to be within 70-80 years of the events that they portray. They also are complimentary; they outline a number of similar events, there are no contradictions, and they basically share exactly the same message. We have copies that are written in languages that are still known today (Coptic Greek - which was basically the equivalent of English in the day because many countries spoke it as a second language), so it's very easy to see if the bible has been "changed a lot". The "other" gospels do not have this kind of historical strength. They typically began to circulate 200 to 300 years after the original gospels. They had numerous contradictions between themselves, and the existing gospels that had been accepted as "canon" for many decades. It is therefore generally not accepted by historians both secular and Christian that they are not legitimate. @StompGrind - to your original point, China is undergoing an incredible spiritual revival at the moment. Despite it being basically illegal, there are 10s of millions of Christians now, with more being added to the number daily. As you know, the government is pretty big on control, so this disturbs them. Therefore I'm not particularly surprised that they would try and alter the narrative pretty drastically; the nature of Jesus is central to the whole of the Christian faith, so I guess trying to change his character is a good place to start if you want to try and halt the spread. Ultimately though, Christianity has always spread most dramatically during times of persecution, so I'm neither surprised or particularly alarmed by this.

    Just watched the fight...that was complete schooling. Seemed Costa got completely sucked into Izzy's game; spent more time claiming he wasn't hurt than actually fighting back. Very disappointing performance. Fair play to Izzy; made it look easy.

    Ozzy is really starting to look like Andy in there, he puts people off their game plan big time. Needs a big strong rangy eastern bloc grappler with heavy hands to beat him I think. He's definitely hittable. Crazy when retard Kelvin had him dead to rights and went for that take-down, looking back it's going to be as bad as Chaels spinning chit. Thankfully we have a guy with those skills and he's hungry

    There are gospels where the young Jesus kills people. I don't remember all of them. The bible has changed a lot to fit the propaganda of the church.

    Why? If a fat WW could touch him up it's not much of a stretch to think that Costa could pressure him. Costa froze and got picked apart. So it goes

    This sort of opinion is why i remain agnostic. Seems a little arrogant to me to skoff at other people's fairies when Atheist whether they wanna admit it or not believe in a nothing fairy. 🤣 It's just as plausible there is a higher power, there is nothing or we're in sim in some aliens basement. Perhaps it's all three at once. No one scoff's at quantum superposition but as far as we can tell something existing in two places at once is a thing. Plenty of SC, gov and all walks of life believe in some religion. Doesn't mean they're necessarily gonna make some crazy decisions any more than an Atheist that may have a do as thou wilt kind of leaning because there is nothing after this so in a modern context things are a little more fair game due to that philosophy of life/death. Really is on the person & in this country we do have separation of church and state. The Gnostic Gospels or u just making stuff up? I've only read excerpts but not heard anything like that. The bible as we know it today has changed some going back to the council of Nicea. Christianly as a whole but Catholicism in particular adopted paganism & rituals from Babylonian mystery religion cults and popular greco-roman pantheon myths. i.e. the saints were an adaptation of greco-roman pagan gods & goddesses. Easter was a pagan holiday. Much of the myths, symbolism, rituals were taken and adopted by the church as their own & much of it carries on today. The cross, vesica pisces fish, rod & snake. pine cones etc symbols, the wizard outfits lol, Amen as in Amen-Ra being Egyptian. Divine origin stories such as Osiris, Isis, Horus story.... "son" or Sun god, born of Virgin Mary Dec. 25th birth story from Zoroastrian, Gilgamesh flood story, trinity doctrine etc. all taken from other pagan/Babylonian sources. Islam & Judaism are not different in this regard but their thing is all in on black cubes. They're all in some way ripped off stories from predecessors mainly originating from Babylonian mystery cults. No offense to believers but yeah.....you start looking into the history, etymology of language of how all these religions evolved passing down though out the centuries they're all super muddy & mish mashed together. Didn't know that. Kinda cool that we have a native Scotus. Yeah i don't see them totally over turning it. Amy evidently is pro-life but has some nuanced arguments on R vs W

    His aggression is what wins for him though. I hate when fighters or teams change what they do best because of an opponent, they usually lose. Now I'm pissed with Costa for subjecting us to more mic time from that boobed up string bean
