Because he is not a scapegoat to me, why even post this if you don't believe?

If a scapegoat is a creature that is supposed to have the sins of other creatures heaped upon it, then be sacrificed, then of course Jesus was a scapegoat.

We get the term 'scapegoat' from the bible. The Jewish Preist would, once a year symbolically assign all the sins of the people to a goat and send it off into the wilderness to die in place of the people. The goat had to pay the price for the people's sin. Jesus did the same thing when He died on the cross. The main difference is Jesus did this willingly once and for all, while the goat had no choice and another goat suffered the same thing the next year. So Jesus' willing sacrifice does not accurately fall under the culture's typical use of 'scapegoat'.

We are all here to learn lessons. No one can do that for us. Jesus was a teacher but he was also learning.

You mean you expected to offend people to get lots of answers last time and did not. Seek from Jesus how to live good and right way and obtain attention by proper relationships with people through love, peace and righteousness.

Jesus being a scapegoat is the fundamental doctrine of Christianity. If Christians are offended by that...they're too stupid to understand what the concept means and don't understand their own religion.

Hi ncamy - that's exactly my next question to myself, too. I'll report back what I figure out. Like you I (think I) prefer things not to have that thick, deep translucent shiny plasticy look. Come to think of it I bet that's "lacquer" as opposed to "varnish". But I'll let you know the next great chapter! Another of my questions is the role of "glaze". quien tiene mas copas en el mundo

This is me! I was on Yasmin for about 6 years, stopped taking it at the end of April and have had a regular 26 day cycle since then. I am now 6 days late, 2 negative home pregnancy tests and a negative blood test… And wanting to fall pregnant! He checked my thyroid and that was all normal.

I only started watching Lost (on Netflix) when Sandra praised it a few months back. Seen maybe 20 episodes of season one. It was far better written than most tv cr*p, I readily concede. Real characters, clever but believable backstories and emotions and plot turns. ultima copa del mundo
