    Jesus not pagan

    Jesus still did not celebrate the fertility gods and goddesses of His day. He did fast. And New passover would be well entered with a fast. But why bring in the pagan roots into the church?

    timed out lost post

    Scripture has 50 NT references to the soul. Those that refer to the soul as other than the body are below. Seems to me that only the lost have a perishable soul. All others last.
