Who gets credited with this ?[/b]The Bible is full of examples of one writer crediting another with statements they make. Even in those days where it was not a requirement and there were no copyright laws, these people did it because they had a good conscience. A good Bible reader would follow this example. People like you have demonstrated over and over that you lack this conscience, you lack the knowledge of good and evil which God has given to all of mankind.
This is the reason why in all the preaching of your version of Christian doctrine, you find it very difficult to speak of righteous living, good works, good deeds and love of fellow man, all of which are required for entry into the Kingdom of God. You are basically a selfish-centered Christian trying to promote the teachings of a man who you have placed on a pedestal far above Jesus Christ himself.
If your heart was with God then doing the morally right thing would come naturally. Instead when called out on these matters you attempt lame excuses and ridiculous arguments like what we see in this thread.
There are among the readers of this forum atheists whose heart is right with God, even though they claim lack of belief in God, because they naturally gravitate to doing what is right, and just and fair. You on the other hand are a complete failure as a Christian.
