Here is an email I received in response to one of my essays.

Thoughts of Jesus

Ok i just want to say that assuming its ok to pruen (?? sic) the bible is ignorance and you will surely be judged accordingly! All though this angers me so much i am compelled to hold my tongue and not judge but rebuke! You might do well to read: Revelation 22:18-19.

This reminds me of "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain…the…Great…er…Oz has spoken." in the Wizard of Oz. Truth does not need empty threats to scare people off examining it; only humbuggery does. Truth can withstand any amount of scrutiny.

Jesus came to fulfill the law which is stated in Matthew 5:17-20.

This is a rather uncharacteristic ass-covering quotation. Jesus taught forgiveness. The old testament taught revenge.

So instead of assuming the thoughts of Jesus maybe next time it would be smart to see what he actually says!

It would help if you told me what I said in which essay that misquoted Jesus.
