I agree with much of what u said. I can understand why u r wary of the I accept Jesus as my personal lord and savior type people, but that's not where Carl is coming from. He lives a dedicated life (I know for a fact for as long as he says.. I'm A good friend of his) and just truly wants people to know that God can change their life. I don't think he is out to attack anyone. All I've ever seen him do is state the Word of God. And trust me, I have to work on my relationship and salvation as much as anyone because I want to know that I know that im right. It's a scary thing to get "saved" but still live like the person u always were.
I think Carl places way too much emphasis on words. Words are so easy. Actions are hard. I am wary of people who put so much emphasis on Words. Here I am in the year of 2012, and I am so tired of all the false words I hear. false claims. It's wearing me down. I have known so many people who say the words, but their actions are contrary to what they say Not just in religion, but in other areas. I listen to a man complain about hard times, all the while, he still smokes two packs a day, and the minute he gets an extra hundred dollars, he buys drugs. He is a real nice guy, just foolish.
I have heard so many lies in the last ten years, I find myself not believing a mans words, I merely observe his actions if I want truth. And so, so many times his words become lies once I see his actions.

Understandable. I could see why u feel the way u do. Not everyone is like that tho. Yes, ppl fall and many make mistakes. You may fall, but what matters is... Will u get back up? Admit ur fault and continue striving to do the best of what u are capable of? That's where mercy comes in. It's easy to get so frustrated seeing the same people fall over and over, but some people take a little more work and some take a little more mercy. That's Carl's heart. He loves people and has mercy on them when most would just give up. He's a good guy.

Did you know Carl before he found God? He was still a great guy, but never took one thing serious. Maybe that is why he felt nothing in a Catholic Church. Just because he felt dead in the Catholic faith does not mean all of us do. He knows this, yet he will try to tell someone that is a true believer of the Catholic faith that everything they have ever believed & the faith that kept them going in their darkest times is wrong. I have seen him do it to others & me as well. I am glad he found God! He needed something at that low point in his life. It is the fact that he trys to force it upon people that are NOT lost that offends so many people. Just because you beleive I am lost does not make it so.
Carl, I still love you & will continue to keep you in my Catholic thoughts & prayers as I have for the past 21 years.

I found this poll rather curious.

When a thousand Catholics in Vatican City, Italy, were asked: Which prophet will you pray to first when your'e confronted with disaster?

Jesus was sixth on the list.

ok , this forum asked WHY dont you believe inthe catholic faith!? i am sitting here with a st joseph, catholic bible in my lap... this is what it says,in 1 timothy 3:2 a bishop must be irrepraochable, MARRIED ONLY ONCE, of even temper, self controlled, modest and hhospitable..... thats right catholic bible {and every bible}says a bishop{priest, pope} should be able to marry!!! yet , the priest cannot.thats mans law, not gods. here is a scripture i bet nobody showed them, now dont blow your top, this is the word of god,,... catholic bible.. 1 timothy 4:1 the spirit distinctlysays that in later times some will turn away from the faith{what faith--the apostles instructions or teachings if thats what you want to call it} and will heed deceitful spirits and things taught by DEMONS{KJV SAYS DOCTRINES OF DEVILS} through plausible liars--men with seared consciences who forbid MARRIAGE.... ill stop there, the word of god clearly states a priest can marry. NEED MORE PROOF?? CATHOLIC teaches that peter was the first pope,, wow it says peters mother-in law before the scripture-matthew 8:14 says -- jesus entered peters house and found peters MOTHER-IN-LAW in bed with a fever.... SO if peter had a mother-in-law , he had to have a wife right????catholic diosese have laws conrtrary to thier own bible,i just showed you PROOFF!!!!. INTHE CATHOLIC BIBLE. WOW. why are you mad at me, i showed you the truth in the word of god... apostle paul sais it best,he said,,,WILL YOU MAKE ME YOUR ENEMY FOR SHOWING YOU THE TRUTH????? JESUS SAID IN JOHN17:17.. THY WORD IS TRUTH!!!

had to backup to your post. in 16 years, i HAVE seen people come and go. people backslide from every religion i know. kind of really ruins the witness doesnt it. the reason people backslide is because they have quit praying. once a person is really filled {speaking in tongue} that person must power up this spirit every day{1 hour}. thats why people quit, the spirit just goes dormant, no prayer no power. when it stops , that person immediately goes back to thier original self, sometimes even worse, scary. i want you to understand tnat i love the souls of people, i just shared what the word says right, but peop[le always say , carl said that. no no no ,,the word said it, thats peversion when they say i said it.sounds like you have heard of baptism in the name of jesus before, have you checked the scriptures first? oh by the way , didnt the word just say the priest can marry?? not carl, the WORD

Hey ya dumbass retard, where did you dig up that ignorant pole?
There ain't a fool on the planet who prays to a prophet when there is a disaster? People with half a brain or more pray to God. The dumb shit you say.

Are you peeps still trying to decipher the bible? My gosh, do you have a long and grueling road ahead of you!

You will never figure it out. It is lacking many recently discovered scrolls. Book of Enoch, Book of Mary, Nag Hammadi Scrolls, Dead Sea Scrolls, etc. It is therefore...incomplete and misleading.

If society ever breaks down, you can bet I will place our bible in the bathroom right next to our toilet. When we can't buy toilet paper any more....Well, do I have to continue to tell you what I will be wiping my backside with?

those extra books you see in the old testament of the catholic bible have no cross references to the new testament, there fore proves it cannot be the inspired word of god. notice every other book besides the xtras have references to the new testament. never read these 'new books", but i bet there are no cross refences either. youll be wiping in hell , that is the word of god.!!!
