Re: Bible predicts blockage.
Most christians will argue that the 'needle' was a small opening/door in the wall surrounding a city (can't remember the name) and it was intended for the use of foot traffic only, not large animals used for transport.

Well most christians would be wrong. The again I know a lot of christians, was one myself for a few years, and have never heard this theory before. When you use words like 'most", you really should have some sort of evidence to back it up, or at least use a different word. Maybe use "some" or "I know christians that". "Most" without any evidence is just bad form.

According to InterVarsity Press's Bible Background Commentary (Craig S. Keener ed., 1993), those who support this interpretation are mistaken because the gate in question was not constructed until the Middle Ages - well after the Gospels were written.

So, if a first-type person try to persuade (in a positive connotation of the term) a second-type person the attempt will be surely unsuccessful, and vice versa. Each one of this type-persons are to tackle dialogue inside our own track. Differently, they get nowhere.


I really have no idea what you are getting at with this. I have a feeling it is simply being lost in writing.

No. It is just christianist mumbo-jumbo.
