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.

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

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

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
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.

Re: Jesus was never anointed to Christ
Wow!
Your dishonesty non-sequiturs and unevidenced assertions continue.
Are you saying that unless a follower of a religion lives at the house of worship they have no say in what happens there?

The one where he went to preach must have been someone else's Temple.

Logically progression of ideas seems to be lost on you. Nothing that was said should rationally lead to any statement like this.
This started with me asking for evidence of ritual prostitution at the Temple in Jerusalem and you managed to drag it off to this non-sequitur.

Admin, Mods.
I realize that this is in faith and belief, but to continue to let him present unevidenced claims and bald assertions with absolutely nothing to back it is a travesty. Would I be allowed to start a topic and just throw random shit on the wall?
This is not at all tied into the OP. An OP that had misrepresentations from the start.

Religious wackaloons
The thing about these religious wackaloons is that they expect us to be convinced solely because they say so. They think we should accept that they have some sort of insight or special knowledge that no one else possesses. It is not much different from most RWNJ's(Right Wing Nut Jobs) and anti-vaxxers.

There is the rub
Alas, I guess you are correct.

I promise, I won't troll the trolls.
