comment Why is it called Christianity
@john Paul's letter to the Corinthians (chapter 15) attests that most of the people who saw Jesus after His resurrection were still alive at the time he was writing the letter. Thus, we know for a historical fact that the letter was written probably 20-30 years after the resurrection of Jesus (~50 A.D.)--not 75-125 years later. And that wasn't even his first letter. Christianity is not a new religion at all. As I noted, it is fulfilled Judaism that embraces its Messiah. Call it whatever you want. The name does not matter. It all rests on the resurrection of Jesus, the promised Messiah.

comment What do Evangelical Christians consider “the traditions” to be in 1 Thessalonians 2:15?
@CharlesAlsobrook Sorry. Just pointing out that the traditions they were speaking of would, by definition, be in existence then, so it would not refer to teachings introduced later. Scripture can never mean what it did not mean originally.

Well, whatever it means, it refers to what was taught before then--not after.

It does NOT depend on what the meaning of the word "is" is...

comment Does Jeremiah 8:8 imply that the scriptures were corrupted?
The 5000 variant Greek manuscripts vary largely in 1) alternate spellings (color/colour), 2) word order (Christ Jesus/Jesus Christ), 3) and then insignificant variants in articles and verb tenses that fell out of use over time. So, your statement about those is either uninformed or misleading.
