    I have reminded you of what the topic is, yet you ignore it.

    What more proof of trolling is needed when dealing with you?

    You want a debate about Martin Luther splitting the church for the second time

    Martin Luther was a catholic priest who married a Nun

    If you are talking about me I am not a Catholic, I am Anglican, and I'm retired. This is what I usually get from insecure atheists when I challenge their deeply help beliefs about the Bible being "contradictory" and about God being a homicidal maniac, and so on. It's funny, at some point one of them will invariably tell me how many Priests they know and how none of them are like me. Well, I know a lot of Priests and they are all like me, if you lie to them they will call you on it, although many of them would not waste their time on people like these.

    I'm used to it, they are just claiming they can pee higher on the wall than I can, and they are wrong about that, too.

    They call us "Priests", too, and we are not as far from Catholic as you might think. Where did you go to school, Gordon Conwell?

    You don't come to Jesus through your intellect. Jesus said "no one comes to the Father unless the Spirit draws him."

    The Bible has been amended and redacted many, many times.. and most of the OT was borrowed from earlier civilizations.. How exactly is that spiritual?

    I have never attacked a catholic priest as they are so deluded that they are not worth the effort.

    I am just following what the OP asked, something you seem not to comprehend.

    And you of course have first hand and written, by this Jesus, that he said this. Doubtful.

    Morality is an implication. You are equating implication with inference. An implication necessarily is what it is; an inference is not necessarily what is implied.
    Another example of what you are touching on is truth and proof. Truth is an implication; proof is an inference. Truth is necessarily what it is, but proof is not necessarily what is inferred.

    Be honest here Margot....you are unsure of anything the Bible reveals. So where do you derive your faith? A Priest? Where do they derive their faith? How do you know Jesus ever said anything? I do not consider myself a fundamentalist. I view the fundamentalist as a strict religion that believes God gave us His word and then was done with it. I am more of an evangelical that Believes God wants to use His imperfect People to convey His message as He works on their character. I believe His Word is alive, active and brings wisdom to all who would seek after Him. It's not a forgery and it is not a made up story.

    I am not an Evangelical either. I have read the Bible thru many times and I have a zillion years in Church and Sunday school. I completely reject Scofield and futurism.

    I think the value in the epic fairy tales is in the message.

    I'm not sure what you mean when you say "The Apocalypse of Peter covered the Hellfire aspects." Please provide a scriptural quotation that demonstrates this supposed "The Apocalypse of Peter" which supposedly covered the "Hellfire aspects."
