To: what's up
It's scary when people choose to believe man made blather rather than the plain spoken words of Jesus or the Apostles. I guess that's why some groups didn't want their people to read the scripture for themselves, else uneducated rubes like us might say 'Hey! That's not what it says..." Ping to #157.

You mean these words of Jesus: "if he refuses to listen even to the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector"?

Was John the Baptist assumed into Heaven? If not, why not? Jesus said in Luke 7:28 I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there is none greater than John:

You seem to have purposely omitted the line that follows: "...yet the one who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he."

The entire passage reads: "I tell you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John; yet the one who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he." Certainly Christ's mother was "in the kingdom of God."
