In reference to gold magnolias and the fruit of God? Include ticks, misquitos, hepititas and aids etc. And scripture quote…..how about John 8:44 “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of you father you want to do. He was evil from the beginning” Then must be bad fruit from a bad tree. That is the only chapter and verse I know because I saw an a Danzik t-shirt.
I HAVE STUDIED VERY EARLY CHRISTIANITY AND KNOW THAT TODAY’S SO CALLED “Christianity;” would be called anti-freedom by early Christians. If one reads a book called Nag Hammadi, sight will be given to my position, “let those with ears, hear.”
Besides the gospel of Thomas and Mary, I love the one by Paul /Simon called The concept of our great Power! Yes, I sought but Genesis (knowledege) set me free. I hope everyone will look, I found that the orgional Lords’ prayer is “power bring Thy Holy Spirit upon me.” NOT one to the bad tree saying “lead us not into temtation,” or better yet, “oh please almighty devil do not tempt me with your evils.” Have fun knocking on door in the library.
The creator of this ‘creation’ that says “I will tempt you with evils” i.e. bad fruit cannot be a good tree because the fruit is not so good. I love the real apostle Paul but what finally setteled in Rome with Bishop Polycarps editing and his pastorial letters plus II Thessolonians is Anti – Paul etc! I did a paper under Dr. Robert Burns at U of AZ called antithesis (later called Refutations, Contridictions etc.) the greek loan word found at the end of II the end of I Timothy.
