I'm only the messenger. I don't damn anyone; I only pass on Jesus' gospel message -- a message that is a two edge, depending on how it is received.

Yes, to 1 and no to 2. However, we should refrain from ascribing human emotions to God. His love is not like human love, nor is his hate like human hate. Nor is his anger like human anger, etc.

Here are interesting websites I ran across....I was wondering what your thoughts were on it, especially on the links between the British Crown, the Vatican, Freemasonry, and the Jesuits....

  • Tertullian. Born 155 C.E. could not possibly have attested to the mythical event. Plus, of course, he was on the Christian payroll, undoubtedly indoctrinated and not impartial.
  • Justin Martyr Born 100 C.E. is in the same boat as Tertullian.
  • That leaves Tacitus. Setting the mythicist question aside for the moment and addressing your assertion that the resurrection is “the best attested historical fact of antiquity ever recorded” I must ask where, in all his writings, does Tacitus so much as mention the resurrection?

Sir, you asked for one extra-biblical source. You didn't qualify your challenge with "extra-biblical, atheistic-sources, or "extra-biblical secular" sources. Nor did you qualify with any date parameters.

But you're right about Tacitus. My bad. I misread something. However, as you know Tacitus did mention Jesus, his death, etc.
