'Jesus was not God'

'Jesus was not God' book written by Catholic Priest being sold in churches  

Jesus Christ was not God, and Mary was not a virgin, according to a controversial new book written by an Australian Catholic priest.
In the booklet, ‘God is Big. Real Big’, which has gone on sale for $20 in several churches, Bathurst priest Peter Dresser argues Jesus could not have been God.

“This whole matter regarding Jesus being God ... not only does violence to my own intelligence, but must be a sticking point,” he says.
“For millions of people trying to make some kind of sense of the Christian religion ... No human being can ever be God, and Jesus was a human being. It is as simple as that.”
Father Dresser claims Joseph was Jesus’s father, Mary was not a virgin – and actually had six children – and that the story of the resurrection should not be taken literally.

The booklet has angered conservative Catholics, such as Sydney priest Anthony Robbie.
“What a breathtaking know-all, to claim he knows the mind of Christ contrary to scripture and tradition. His words rob Christianity entirely of its meaning and purpose,” Father Robbie told News Ltd.

My Thought on this:

I wonder how he passed through a seminary and became an ordained  Priest even though am not a Catholic neither am I a fan of their doctrines but I know they teach about the "Holy Trinity"!!!

  1. At least he got one thing straight -- Mary didn't remain a virgin and had other children, contrary to Roman Catholic doctrine.

    Ah, well, having been to seminary doesn't make anyone a true Christian anyhow. I'm no longer surprised Roman Catholic clergy are making such claims. After all, since the pope said evolution and creation are "friends", what isn't possible?

  2. BTW, nice new template, sis. I can tell a lot of work went into setting it up!

  3. LOL Isaiah you are so funny, but not a laughing matter for these men I don't know what Spirit works in them to say these things.
    Am surprised you like this template it's like that other template has some problems, like i told you, i only get visitors like you who frequently visit and I cant find my page on google too so I decided to revert to a simple blogger template to see what happens in the next few days.

    Love and Godbless

  4. BTW nice avatar always nice to know the softer side of people lol
