I for the most part would say the same thing EtrnlVw did.
Of course you would. And I wouldn't expect anything else from a sheep.

These are not the words of the Christ.
1John:1 -20 are clearly the words of the author he is not quoting the Christ. Read it ALL for yourself.
Would Jesus say 1 John:1: 9 "He sent his one and only Son that we might live through him"? NO! - he would say - ' he sent me'.
Would Jesus say 1 John:1: 10 " but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins". ? NO! - he would say - 'he sent me'.
Would Jesus say 1 John:1: 14 "And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world ? NO! - he would say - 'he sent me'.
And would Jesus say 15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God"? NO! - he would say - 'If anyone acknowledges that I AM the son of god'.
And would Jesus say>>>1 John:1 - 17 " In this world we are like Jesus". NO! - he would say - "In this world YOU are like ME!!!!!!
And Luke 14:1-26 makes it perfectly clear who is talking!!!
The Cost of Being a Disciple
25 Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: 26 “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple.
You people are absolutely full of it. You make shite up on the hoof and pray no one will actuality research and check your answers and responses.
It is a clear biblical contradiction that you are not explaining, but attempting to explain away!!! They are verses that are a complete embarrassment to you.
What matters is what the church teaches,
That is my whole problem with these scriptures and how they are taught by the church and its fawning, sycophantic minions. The spin. and unsubstantiated stories and lies you invent to explain embarrassing statements and verses away such as those I have highlighted above is absolutely eye watering.......... all the time.
