The Ebionites: Early Jewish Christians

http://www.vexen.co.uk/religion/ebionites.html

Ebionite Christians had an early copy of the Gospel of Matthew; they did not have the two first chapters (including the virgin birth), which were added by later Christians. They strongly believed that all the Old Testament Jewish Laws had to be obeyed; including the Sabbath and circumcision for all males. As such, they considered St Paul to be the archenemy of Christianity as he taught that people did not have to obey the Law in order to be saved. Pauline Christians eradicated the Ebionites, burnt all their books (none survived), and wrote volumes and volumes against them.

"If we were to guess which group was the more austere, holy and godly, we would have to guess it was the Ebionites rather than the Pauline Christians who slaughtered, slandered and oppressed them. Unfortunately the victors get to write history, and it is Pauline Christianity that became the legacy of the Roman Empire. After the fourth century, the Ebionites were vanquished."

No matter what you say or do to obliterate the God of the Bible, you WILL be able to and when you die you will get to be face to face with Him. I guarantee you that. I would not want to be you. You will say, "Why did I not listen to those "crazy" Christians!" Why do you hate God sooo much???? Afraid you might actually have to be "accountable" to a higher authority? That's usually the case. :>

Hahaha, this is very funny. If the God of the Roman Catholics exist I no on has anything to worry about cause all they have to do is believe that Jesus died a sacrificial death and they are saved. Personally I know God and you got the wrong idea.
