Re: Jesus was never anointed to Christ
The Jesus commune likely followed the traditional Temple ways of having temple Prostitutes supply the coin to buy bread.

That was the custom when in areas of finite recourses.

A temple without bread is just an empty house.

That is why the Temple Prostitutes were afforded so much respect.

Source that the jewish temple had prostitutes? Are you talking about the temple in Jerusalem? Or other Jewish temples?

Re: Jesus was never anointed to Christ
I think it would have been all Temples where resources were finite and leaders wanted to reduce the numbers of infant sacrifice.

The ancients tried to sanctify man and wife sex because too many women were dying from too many pregnancies.

Re: Jesus was never anointed to Christ
Is all you have is assertions?
Please provide some sort of historical evidence. Just because you say it does not make it true. First you were talking about jewish temples now you say all Temples? What temples? Only jewish , mystery religions? What?

Re: Jesus was never anointed to Christ
You haven't shown evidence for any of these assertions. Maybe because you don't have any do you.

Can you support any of your stories? Will you ignore the need for evidence?

Are you better than any need to show evidence?

Re: Jesus was never anointed to Christ
An assertion based on facts and reading.

It was more by location.

The more finite the resources, the more controls had to be imposed.

I am sure that it you google, Temple Prostitutes, you will find much of interest.

St. Peters is said to have been built on the backs of prostitutes.

Re: Jesus was never anointed to Christ
I did not come here to lie or be someone's data bitch.

If anyone has anything that contradicts what I write, bring it on.

I have done most of my own research and will not bother having posters reject it because they do not like the source.

Re: Jesus was never anointed to Christ
I did not come here to lie ...

Then why are you doing so much of it?

If anyone has anything that contradicts what I write, bring it on.

I contradict all of it. I'm calling you a liar. Care to show me wrong?

I call your assertions falsehoods because you refuse to evidence them. No evidence. That is all anyone needs to reject any assertion.

Rejected.

I have done most of my own research and will not bother having posters reject it because they do not like the source.

In other words your sources are as shit as your assertions and you know that. Interesting and good to know.

Re: Jesus was never anointed to Christ
So you have nothing for the lies and misinformation you spew. All you have are more unevidenced assertions. So are you a QAnon follower too?

Mods and Admin.
I think you need to consider closing down this thread. If the writer of the OP is unwilling to engage in a constructive, honest way then the topic has no purpose.
