Read their vile twistings of Scriptures and outright lies for yourself, in their own words:

At ccel.org (very badly organized, but at least they are in sections and mildly searchable):
https://www.ccel.org/fathers.html

Else (and these folks aren't much better at web design), http://earlychristianwritings.com/churchfathers.html
Frankly their CD version is not that good.

Bibleworks 9 bundles in the above, but so far I've not found out how to search it.

Slowly I'll make videos on these jerks, starting thus far are some:
https://vimeo.com/channels/churchfathers (vimeo won't display a playlist using php).


Incredible how clueless they are re God's Nature and Christ's. Yet they could read the Greek? Shameful. Anyone praising these people cannot read Scripture yet.

I'm surprised computers weren't invented during the time of the Retarded Church Fathers (RCF), Windows 10 seems right up their alley...

I can imagine Polycarp proclaiming that the Microsoft Window 10 operating system provides the best user experience for both privacy and customization.

OH WAIT!!! I have just been notified that scholars have discovered a new letter from Polycarp, and it has been freshly translated for anno 2017.

ΤΟΥ ΑΓΙΟΥ ΠΟΛΥΚΡΑΠΟΥ
ΕΠΙΣΚΟΠΟΥ ΣΜΥΡΝΗΣ ΚΑΙ ΙΕΡΟΜΑΡΤΥΡΟΣ
ΠΡΟΣ ΦΙΛΙΠΠΗΣΙΟΥΣ MICROSOFT WINDOWS 10

1. Συνεχάρην ὑμῖν μεγάλως ἐν τῷ κυρίῳ ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χρισῷ, δεξαμένοις τὰ μιμήματα τῆς ἀληθοῦς ἀγάπης καὶ προπέμψασιν, ὡς ἐπέβαλεν ὑμῖν, τοὺς ἐνειλημένους τοῖς ἁγιοπρεπέσιν δεσμοῖς, ἅτινά ἐστιν διαδήματα τῶν ἀληθῶς ὑπὸ θεοῦ καὶ τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν ἐκλελεγμένων· 2. καὶ ὅτι ἡ βεβαία τῆς πίστεως ὑμῶν ῥίζα, ἐξ ἀρχαίων καταγγελλομένη χρόνων, μέχρι νῦν διαμένει καὶ καρποφορεῖ εἰς τὸν κύριον ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦν Χριστόν, ὃς ὑπέμεινεν ὑπὲρ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν ἡμῶν ἕως θανάτου κατανῆσαι, ὃν ἤγειρεν ὁ θεός, λύσας τὰς ὠδῖνας τοῦ ᾅδου· 3. εἰς ὃν οὐκ ἰδόντες πιστεύετε χαρᾷ ἀνεκλαλήτῳ δεδοξασμένῃ, εἰς ἣν πολλοὶ ἐπιθυμοῦσιν εἰσελθεῖν, εἰδότες, ὅτι χάριτί ἐστε σεσωσμένοι, οὐκ ἐξ ἔργων WINDOWS 10, ἀλλὰ θελήματι θεοῦ διὰ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ.

THAT GUY, POLYCRAP
AN AMAZING NEW LETTER
OUTLINING MICROSOFT WINDOWS 10'S BENEFITS

1. I want to congratulate everyone who has upgraded to Windows 10. Jesus Christ has just told me personally that it's the best operating system ever regardless of your era. Windows 10 represents 'true love' and passion, I can really tell the developers did extensive research to benefit you, the customer. God has elected Microsoft to be the vehicle for this divine new OS, and YOU may have complained in the past. 2. How dare you with all of your sins, say, that Windows 10 has "telemetry", "customer experience improvement program", "forced updates", "torrenting data to other PCs using your bandwidth" and "cortana" is spying or undesirable. 3. These features are designed to improve how we live and God knows what's best for us. We are not merely saved by works, but through the use of Windows 10 which elevates OUR grace. I demand all believers purchase a copy of Microsoft's Windows 10 IMMEDIATELY or burn in hades.

Love how the translation disagrees with the Greek. Thank you!

(PS the joke is, hupostasis pasted Polycarp to the Philippians verse 1-3, added 'Windows 10' to Polycarp's indirect MISquote from Ephesians 2:8, then 'translated' it.)

Post subject:  Hypocrisy on Parade

I was looking to see where the meter and text in Mark 13 for particular phrases would be echoed in the mindset or phrasing of the time marked by the meter, and if it were possible to find when Bible mss were disseminated.

Apparently Michael III (842-867) donated many Bibles to one of the churches, but I can't tell for sure, since the term is 'New Testament relics'. So in trying to chase that meaning down, I found this bilious piece of trash by the American Bible Society:
https://books.google.com/books?id=SOFMA ... nt&f=false

So even today, the same sickness pervades.

The reference to Michael III is in footnote 53, Chapter 9, p.233 of the pdf of a translation of Scylitzes, https://archive.org/stream/JohnSkylitze ... 9_djvu.txt
