[quote=SPOKENWORD]I believe all christian denominations believe Jesus Christ has siblings.
Thank you for this insitefull information. I now know that the Catholics are the largest non-Christian group in the world. So, what do we call 1+ BILLION Catholics now if not Christian?:hmmm:
I am living proof of that fact.
You are living proof, but of what fact…? So, you’re a sibling of Christ or a brother of Christ? Blessed Mary is you’re biological mother too?:eek:
Since you can say Catholics are not Christian and you’re the younger sibling of God, could you also prognosticate my salvation for me so I don’t have to wait for Jesus to do it?:yup: When you walk on water do you only sink halfway up to your waste?
So, since it is now obvious that we don’t use words the same way in our languge - not to mention Arimaic and Greek translations - let us define ‘brother’ and ‘sibling’.
“Main Entry: broth·er
Inflected Form(s): plural brothers also breth·ren m-w.com/images/audio.gif /'breth]-r&n; 'bre-th]&-r&n, -th]&rn/
Etymology: Middle English, from Old English *brOthor; *akin to Old High German *bruodor *brother, Latin *frater, *Greek *phratEr *member of the same clan

6 a capitalized : a member of a congregation of men not in holy orders and usually in hospital or school work b : a member of a men’s religious order who is not preparing for or is not ready for holy orders <a lay brother>”
“Main Entry: sib·ling

2 : one of two or more things related by a common tie or characteristic”
We are all brothers and sisters in Christ. God Bless
Thank you SPOKENWORD, you have just proven my point, ‘brother’ is just a word used to describe members of a common group and not siblings at all in Scripture!:clapping:
Sorry if I’m too blunt, but I hate Catholic bashing statements that are complete lies.
