Flagrant deception?

Acts 1:10. Two MEN, or two angels?…
ALL conservative Bible commentators ALTER the reading from MEN to ANGELS.
If the student concurred that the Book of Acts is to be inspired Scripture, why then is it MEN instead of ANGELS?
What are the implications of this type of “inspiration”?
“And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel.”

How do you then correct the

How do you then correct the text? Is it two MEN or two angels? If it's two men, how could they see they were men?!... Beard?... Deep voice?!...

No gods with indirect messages to me.

Dangling bits would be my guess.  Angels don't have any of the things.  The only problem being that they were wearing white clothing, which in a biblical context is code for dudes who prefer dudes.

well, to be fair, the bible is silent on that matter.  that info comes from a couple wacky church fathers, i believe.  i also think kevin smith referenced it in dogma.

oh, and just to be clear, dogma was an unfunny, unoriginal, pretentious load of shit.

sorry.  i never can mention that film without adding that.

Awww. 'Dogma' was hilarious.

And it was Metatron that dropped his drawers in front of Linda Fiorentino to reveal his Ken-doll privates... just after she jumped off the bed to grab her bat. If you slow-mo when she gets out of bed you get to see a white cotton panties shot.

Just sayin'

 

 

On topic: The KJV says 'men'. However, there is something deeper here if you look for it.

This is the book of filling in the gaps before modern gap-fillers took over. The original questions of "Where did he go?" and "What happened to Judas and the other disciples?" were questions that skeptics already had. I compare it to Episode III of Star Wars with Paul going over to the dark side. lol.

Every chapter in Acts should have "Yeah, Yeah, that's the ticket." right at the end.
