No, I didn't contradict my-self. I was correcting your assumption by pointing out what the bible CLEARLY reads. They were Jews being occupied by the Romans. They had every bit of their culture to themselves. I am saying it is clear to whom Jesus is speaking too. Do I have to quote it?
I am not even getting into the "what if's" and "why nots". You reject the doctrine of preservation.
Okay, okay, Jesus was a radical. He never washed a woman's feet. A woman, a harlot washed his. He washed his disciples feet. He acquitted an adulteress and at the same time condemned her accusers. What's your point?
You reject Christ as Saviour. You are a sinner like the rest of us. You will bare the punishment of your sin's and go to hell. That's very sad. All because you want to sound like a nice guy. Like Gahndi. It's very sad.
