If one were to reinspect the Christian canon what would you add what would you take out what would you leave in and why

Canon in terms of scripture, or canon in terms of theology?

If we are going to go in terms of theology, I think Jesus was attempting to go for a Tao Te Ching kind of thing in a religiously retarded society. The thing was, Jesus loves you all, so he sacrificed himself in order to spread a message that very much resembled what the Tao Te Ching taught. In doing so, he became a hypocrite, and his intentions backfired terribly.

To be a Master Sage, it is not to your benefit to openly preach about it.

I use the word hypocrite lightly...

Jesus wanted to make an impact, and in doing so, he made an impact. But it is likely that he did not make the impact that he intended to.

I gather this impression from his words.

If I could take out one part of the bible, it'd be the story with the fig tree. That whole tale seemed really bizzare to me--it didn't seem to fit Jesus.

I'd also take out the story of Jacob and his colored flock...It seems rather bizarre to me.

Maybe the sexist stuff, the homophobic stuff, the faith stuff, the slavery stuff. That would be a start.

wow, take out revelations and put in The acts of Thecla, I know it is a forgery, but so are many of the letters of Paul that made it in. The bible just needs more man eating seals.

I have an idea to.
We can just have a bunch of people on an obscure website toss out or include laws of physics they do or do not like.

Someone can start with Gravity. How boring! We should really be able to fly!

Calm down. It's a mere hypothetical--presented by a pretty devout Christian, among other things.

I thought it came across pretty clear. I did not see an uncalm mannor relayed by the previous text.

I do not see how him being a devout Christian is relevant.

You would have to take the whole gospel it is recorded in with it

We can't take fragments we have to take the full book with it like all of leviticus would have to go

Laws against homosexuality are comparable to the laws of physics? I don't think so.

There is an inconsistency never properly addressed between Jesus' stated fundamentalism and his abrogation of the old laws.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Acts of thecla is a book that contains god striking down man eating seals with bolts of lightning. It would be so awesome for christians to have to explain that. It is about Pauls female companion Thecla. It was very popular in early christianity but was left out of the cannon because it was found to be a forgery. Although knowing what we know now that isn't really an issue, so I say put it back in damn it.

Objective Moral truths are fundamental as Objective rules that govern physics.

Moral laws govern our society and existence as much a physical laws. I am sorry if you do not like that?

Perhaps such a tact should not be taken to pick and choose.

Lol you do realize that god thought the morally right thing to do was kill someone for working on the sabbath. Is it still wrong to work on the sabbath? If so is it still morally right to kill them? If not what happened to this objective morality garbage?

I am sure your subjective morality is fundamental to your subjective life. However I don't see any evidence to support the idea of objective morality. The evidence is simply not there.

Divine providence is the ONLY valid answer as that is what the word 'cannon' is referring to.

This is like saying; what is 2+2?

and 4 is NOT a valid answer!

1984 anyone?
