Example text

43 was begotten-just the same before as after. Christ is just as old as his father, and the father is just as young as his son. The Holy Ghost proceeded from the Father and the Son, but was equal to the Father and the Son before he proceeded, that is to say, before he existed, but he is of the same age as the other two. So it is declared that the Father is God, and the Son God and the Holy Ghost God, and these three Gods make one God. Ingersoll continues later by saying, "According to heavenly subtraction if we take two from three, three are left.

23:17 and Luke 11:40 he refers to others as fools. The obvious question then becomes, Shouldn't Jesus be sent to hell too? After all, he did lay down a maxim for all to follow. Or is Jesus to be exempt from morality and allowed to do whatever strikes his fancy? Some apologists try to resolve this problem by alleging that there are different Greek words for "fool" and Jesus did not call people the kind of fool that is referred to in Matt. 5:22. This is not only a case of rationalizing but of blatant inaccuracy and deception.

10:23, Mark 1:45, and John 6:15 also clearly show that Jesus often felt it was better to be a live coward than a dead hero. In fact, except for Stephen and possibly John the Baptist, there is no biblical figure that was willing to die for the cause. Biblicists constantly talk about Christians surrendering their lives willingly in the cause of Jesus Christ. Yet there is no biblical text to that effect and precious little outside the Bible. The willingness of Christians to become martyrs in the cause of Jesus Christ is based far more on Christian mythology than sound history.
