Posing as a power company repairman, Ferguson entered a home where he and two others shot to death six people in an execution style line up. Back then, the Miami Herald called it "the worst mass murder in Dade history." Ferguson was also convicted of the 1978 murder of two teens from nearby Hialeah.

I think that kinda shows he ain't the Christ.

I don't see how you can make any conclusions from that.
As I said before, God (and Jesus is, supposedly, also God) didn't have any trouble at all killing hundreds of innocent women and children or visiting punishment upon innocent children just because of the bad deeds of the parents. How is that any different?

Of course, *I* don't believe he is the "Prince of God" or Prince of anything else, for that matter. But I don't believe in beings whose existence cannot be proven.

I'm thinking it would take as much to convince Christians that the "real" Jesus was here and walking around as it would to convince me. Maybe more - because I don't think they actually want that to be the case.

Anyway, it's interesting that everyone who claims God told them to do something that is considered bad or claims to be God - in some form or other - is declared nuts, even though there is ample documentation in the Bible of God doing very bad things.

But if someone claims God told them to do something considered good by this society, everyone believes they actually hear God talking to them.

God says bad: Person nutz.
God says good: Person hailed.

Forgive me for being just a little puzzled by such convoluted nonsense.
