Re: Bart's "Judas" comment in Digest 1236

Bart's statement about Judas being criticized for betraying Christ is well
put. According to scripture Jesus predicted his own demise as a result of
betrayal and even went so far as to demand it: "That thou doest, do quickly."
[Joh 13:27 NKJV].
Hence the paradox (primarily for Fundamentalist Christians) of condemning
someone for doing exactly what God told him to do. Just one more example of
why it is so important for them to simply <believe>. For when careful
Biblical analyses and logic are applied to some of the scriptures serious
problems arise. Namaste - Dennis
