This might sound really stupid, and I might be stupid for reference something to an anime, but has anyone ever sen Evangelion?

There is an angel named "Lilith" and the other is "Adam". I was always curious about why there was no "Eve" but a "Lilith" in that anime since it was referenced to God/Heaven/Angels and what not.

But it all makes sense now...Thanks FreyKade.

Is it possible that you have a link to those those facts or anything? I'd be interested in reading them.

Also, one more thing, for everyone. ((Kinda off topic)) But supposedly Jesus married a woman named Mary M-something. Can never remember the last name. And supposedly there was some pages or a book about it, that they never put forth in fear that it may ruin Jesus' image. Anyone know anything about that? Or could give me some info, I'm curious about it.

Thanks.

I'm sure that many Christians often cringe in being reminded with constant proof that "in the name of God" has been used for some horrific genocides on humanity (i.e. Native Americans, Islam, Hinduism, and primal religions). That is the main reason as to why Christians currently are the largest religious group in the world.


actually, i do beleive islam is the largest populated religion in the world right now, and still growing.

Lilith was the first wife of Adam, but cos she was made from mud she only gave birth to evil spirits, so she left the garden to join Satan.

After that, Yahweh made Eve out of Adams ribs.

Lilith went on to become the Queen of the Night.

Jesus Christ didnt marry Mary Magdalin I dont believe, but she was a whore who travelled with Jesus I think.

(she is in the Passion of the Christ, the younger woman that follows Jesus around)

The last time i checked, christianity is the world's largest, but islam is the world's fastest growing major religion (smaller religions usualy grows even faster)

You mean Mary Magdalene? Hmm. I don't know about that, but here's what I can say about Jesus: In Jesus' time, it was standard for rabbis to marry (he was Jewish, after all) and have children. So I wouldn't be surprised if he did.

The Mary Magdalene as Jesus' wife is just a speculation. There is no evidence, not even clue. The traditional view is that Mary Magdalene is a prostitute, however this is also another speculation. She was definitely one of Jesus' disciple, but not necesarily an apostle, although some people think that she was. Also there is a book called the Gospel of Mary which put some credibility to this theory.

Ahhh.... Thanks you guys for the info.

If I mention to people that some believe he had a wife, they all blow up at me. I don't see anything wrong with him having a wife. He was born a man and thus was susceptible to earthly things.

If he were my saviour, I wouldn't have a problem with this. So please, what is the big deal, per se, if it were true, would you think of him any less? I don't think anyone would. People want to paint the perfect picture of Jesus, but I really don't think that's possible. He was born man, sure he was enlightened, more knowlegeable and the Son of God, but man nonetheless.

Does this mean he cannot love? Of course not. Did God say unto him that he should not partake into earthly pleasures? No. If it does, I have not read it, please point it out to me.

Oh and one more thing:

Jesus was Jewish. What's all this Christinanity/Catholic busniess? Some please explain? Seriously. Not trying to condemn anyone, I'm curious.

Ah, I'm rambling, I'm sorry. Thanks guys.

some people actually believe that Jesus did get married and possibly have children, but it is a church conspiracy and they are hiding it from the public....i really wouldn't understand why, big deal he had some kids....it could give people hope....a new slogan "Cuz remember, you may have some Jesus in you"

*chuckles* That's true Anubis. But then that would probably bring about a lot more racial issues...

My favourite bible fact is something that my RE teacher told my class when we were about 12.
You know at the end of 'Stigmata' it talks about one of the dead sea scrolls that was known as 'the Gospel of Thomas' and is now apparentlly denounced as heresy by the Vatican?
Well anywho, apparently in said Gospel, Jesus gets mad at someone and kills them on the spot, with his eyes. disgust.gif
Please someone explain why the Vatican would hide this! Lasar-vision Jesus!! I want one, more than a Buddy Christ! thumbsup.gif

I just read through this entire thread and have to point out one major mistake, Moses did not write the pentateuch.
I learnt this in my first lesson of A-level RS, it was originally believed that he was the author, but that is blatantly impossible, since he was dead before the end of Exodus, so how on earth could he write deuteronomy, leviticus and numbers from beyond the grave. Even for Moses, that's just silly! wacko.gif

Also, the bible wasn't actually written down until about 900 BC before that it was simply spread by word of mouth. From 900 BC onwards various groups of people wrote down the stories they knew and over time they merged to form the complete bible. That's why there are two accounts of certain events, such as the death of Saul.
