I believe John Paul II was a great humanitarian and a courageous man. Without him there would be no free Eastern Europe.

My friends in Krakow are mourning, as am I.

-----------------------------------------

Now, I've got a couple of comments - and problems with a couple of your statememts. I'll tell you my problems and give you a chance to clarify.

"So,,,I meant, "some" Jewish leaders were responsible for the rejection of Jesus by the whole Jewish nation. "

This statement implies (to me) that we Jews of today don't have the ability to think for ourselves and make up our own minds. That we are bound by ideas of 2000 years ago. If that is what you meant, nothing is further from the truth. In fact it is a requirement to study, study and study some more and make up your own mind.

"Yes and no. Anyone who dies without knowledge who would have accepted the Gospel of Jesus Christ, (which is the same Gospel as God's) had he known what it really was, will be resurrected to an eternal Celestial body. Are you referring to resurrection, salvation, or exaltation?"

This implies (to me) that ignorance is the only defense. That anyone that does study and still believes that Jesus wasn't devine has no chance.

Honest, Ray, I'm not trying to bait you here, but I feel it is entirely possible for an educated thinking person to not believe in his divinity, or any divinity at all.
