The Sermon on the Mount was clearly addressed to the Jews for the Jews and worded in a way the Jews would grasp easily. The bible account is clear about who were gathered their on those hills in Galilee. Jews all of them. Not Christians, not Jehovah's Witnesses, Catholics or anyone other than Jews. It is Jesus word choices that make the sermon so powerful to his listeners, You asked: "Why do godless people attempt to answer a question about God? And why do godless people attempt to answer a question about Jesus when they claim he didn't exist? Oh, and in the process, fail to answer the question?" Because some of us are not convinced yet. Does not believing the bible to be the word of God, negate it's value as a possible source of historical interest? Someone very wise wrote or said those words on that mountainside thousands of years ago. Does the fact that I may question the mystical claims of rising from the dead, healing, and being the God on earth, change my opinion of the words he expressed. No it doesn't. So I remain interested in what people like you peacelilly, 360, Annsan, Speak Boldly, and a few others (sorry could not pull up the avatars/names at the moment) have to say. I read and evaluate all evidence, It is really the only right thing to do. Otherwise I would have to call myself an atheist, I still consider myself agnostic, so maybe there is still hope for me.????
