I bet Bart doesn’t have many friends ...
In Chapel Hill? Sure he does.
Oh, I'm sure satan (the father of lies, "Yea, hath God said...") and the world have befriended Bart. Interestingly enough, Islam also teaches this forgery nonsense...
But the Truth will be revealed in its time.
It would have been better if Bart had taken this passage to heart - rather than crank it through his textual criticism analysis:
32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
But of course Bart believes this is all forgery...Here's praying that he gets his head and heart right before he finds out when it is too late.
