This shows the differences (or simalarities) between Jesus and Santa. I personally like it. See what you think of it.

Oh, boy, now you done it. I can only imagine the comments that are gonna show up for this one.

Yup.

Yes I agree. ^^^ Lol!

This should be comparing God and Santa, not Jesus and Santa. Half the stuff he's quoting comes from the Old Testament, before Jesus was even born. Those passages describe metaphors for God and His love, not Jesus. And don't tell me that Jesus IS God, because he's not. Even Jesus himself said so. I don't understand why people worship Jesus when he never wanted to be worshipped in the first place. To me it's a complete and utter lack of respect to him to do that.

It's a crock of sh*t really. We tell these lies about Santa to our children because it is very difficult for them to comprehend other explanations (such as buying things with money). They begin to lose some of that abstract thinking around ages 6-8, and then they begin to figure out that it was all never real. But does it make it any less fun for them in the long run? No. When our kids grow up, do they look back with bitterness about being lied to? No, because it was fun for them while it lasted.

"And don't tell me that Jesus IS God, because he's not. Even Jesus himself said so"

tell me where...

"And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent" John 17:3

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life" John 3:16

I couldnt help but put up one of the "comments" I mentioned earlier...

JOHN 10:30 "I and {my} Father are one."

JOHN 8:24 "...if ye believe not that I am He,
ye shall die in your sins."

1 Tim.2:5
"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus."

Matt. 24:35-36 "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words shall not pass away. 36"But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone."

So, the bible contradicts itself. You are both right. **reluctantly I hit the 'post reply' button, fearing what deluge my comments will bring**

I don't really take anything in the new testament too seriously because these accounts were written hundreds of years after Jesus' death. Therefore, they are probably not very accurate. The only gospel I would trust is the Gospel of Thomas, which was supposedly written just 30 years after Jesus' death. Haven't heard of it? Not surprised. The Vatican does not recognize it as a true gospel. Probably because its content contradicts most of the things in the current gospels.

You also have to factor in that all of the English translations today spawned from the King James Version. English in those days was VERY different from how it is spoken today, so you cannot take anything in there literally. For example, in King James' England, "heaven" lierally meant "the sky," not a place of paradise you go to when you die. That came about later on.

there are no contradictions in the Bible. Jesus is God himself. He he wanted to show us that he understood perfectly our human sufferings by becoming a man
sorry if i made any grammatical mistake, english isn't my first tongue

nobody could ever prove that what was written in the whole Bible isn't trustful. all the historic elements mentioned in the Scriptures match perfectly with what historians have researched.
John lived when Jesus came to the Earth, so what he actually wrote is what he lived, not what he was told had happened

i feel that a lot of the differences are going a bit far. pointing out a similarity between santa and jesus from the book of revelations is one such example. but i do agree with the overall point it is making...i mean...when i was little, i believed in santa, the easter bunny, the tooth fairy, and nameless others... i even believed mickey and minnie mouse were real after visiting disney world. i can see how that can have an influence over the child for a short period of time...but i don't know if it can cause any long term damage spiritually.

p.s.---
gizmo- i'm glad you are so open to your own religeous ideas, as am i- but you're not going to change anybody elses on here.

*goes to sleep with all this God crap*

Atenea, the John who wrote the Gospel of John was NOT the same John who lived in the time of Jesus.

I don't aim to change anyone's religious ideas. You can agree to an extent or you can dispute what I say. All I offer is insight so that you can make your own desicion.

Meh. I laughed towards the end when reading "Christians do not have the right to add to the Bible", because that's what the entire New Testament is.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 10/24/04 - 7:59:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
My personal religious view is that you cannot prove that God exists, but you cannot prove that he doesn't exist either.

LONG. i read part of it.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 10/24/04 - 8:24:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
C'mon, no one past the age of 5 believes in Santa Claus...
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 10/24/04 - 9:21:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes he was.. John, the one who wrote Revelations, was one of Jesus' disciples, though Revelations was written after his death... but not hundreds of years after.
but anyway.. i don't think that's the point. we are free to think whatever we want to, but of course we'll have to cope with the consequences later
in regard to the article, i think it's a little exaggerated.. and i agree with you gizmo, i haven't met anyone who feels bitter about being lied about santa
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 10/25/04 - 2:20:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
wait a minute.. there is no Santa Claus.. <cries> Next you are going to tell me there is no Easter Bunny either...
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 10/25/04 - 9:26:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
Actually eastsiderepp, my oldest is 7 and still believes in Santa. Probably not for much longer, but he does. Lets just hope he lasts til Xmas!
Also, regardless of what anyones religious beliefs are, its interesting to get these "debates" going. I like to hear others' points of view.

Atenea, the man who lived in Jesus' time was John the BAPTIST. The man who wrote the Gospel of John was John the APOSTLE. They are not the same man. John the Baptist may have authored 'Revalations,' but had no part in creating the Gospel of John.

Here's a link:

Both John the Baptist (who was Jesus' cousin) and John the Apostle lived in Christ's time. (how can you be the apostle of someone who's dead?) John the APOSTOLE wrote both the Gospel of John and Revelations.
