21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

VATICAN CITY, July 16, 2012,( LifeSiteNews.com )- In a homily delivered in the town of Frascati in Italy Sunday, Pope Benedict XVI noted that the Apostles were called by Christ to preach the truth even if people don’t want to hear it.

He said:

Jesus sends them out two by two and gives them instructions.... The first instruction concerns the spirit of detachment: the Apostles must not be attached to money and comforts. Jesus warns the disciples that they will not always receive a favourable welcome: at times they will be rejected, and may also be persecuted. But that should not affect them: they must speak in the name of Jesus and preach the Kingdom of God, without worrying about success. They must leave the outcome in the hands of God.

Reflecting on the reading concerning the prophet Amos, the Holy Father added:“But, whether accepted or rejected, Amos continued to prophesy, preaching what God says and not what people wanted to hear.”

(I also prefer to read the Bible, or ANY book, for myself...but I can "toss the verses around" like anyone else. No big deal there...as that takes ZERO critical thinking).

The past does not equal the future.
Because you may have failed a moment ago,
all day today,
or for the last six months,
or for the last sixteen years,
or for the last fifty years of your life
doesn't mean anything.
All that matters is
what are you going to do now?"

Such a great one, being able to have more chances..

Did perpetual happiness in the Garden of Eden maybe get so boring that eating the apple was justified?

Life is better than death, I believe, if only because it is less boring, and because it has fresh peaches in it.

I would never talk just to be social. Now, to sit down with a bunch of engineers and talk about the latest concrete forming systems, that's really interesting. Talking with animal behaviorists or with someone who likes to sail, that's interesting. Information is interesting to me.

But talking for the sake of talking, I find that quite boring.

How stupid can you be wrote:
<quoted text>(1) We always do pray for the lost!
(2) You will meet the Resurrected Lord Jesus, as Everyone will!
At that time you will WANT to see Him, or you will dread it..
IT IS YOUR CHOICE!
(3) We do want you saved... refer to #1
(4) Christians do NOT Kill the non-converted! You've got it wrong!
(5) God is real, and your belief in Him has nothing to do with it!
(6) Knowing God is real, even IF I was not saved... I'd still
tell you about Him, as I'd still want you saved!
Good day :-)
This post would be a lot more rational if you said "I believe god is real." "I believe you will meet the resurected lord" Etc.

Instead, you choose to state your beliefs and assumptions as fact. It is reckless, non constructive and narcissistic to assume your unproven beliefs are correct.

If you had overwhelming evidence to back up all this certainty, it would be justified. Instead of proof, you have only a feeling that you believe the right thing. People from many contradictory religions describe that, and you can't all be right, can you?

You should respect the beliefs of others and let go of that false certainty and sense of superiority.

John 14:12
We are now privileged to share in the GREATEST WORK ever entrusted to God’s human servants---that of declaring the Kingdom message and making disciples.(Matt.24:14; 28:19,20) We now (in 2011) number 7,224,934 and put in 1,707,094,710 hours and conducted on the average 8,490,746 Bible studies. How grateful we are for Jesus’ matchless example! He “went journeying from city to city and from village to village, preaching and declaring the good news of the Kingdom of God.”(Luke 8:1) Like him, we need faith and courage in order to preach the Kingdom message. With God’s help, we can be like courageous Noah, an intrepid “preacher of righteousness” to “a world of ungodly people” about to perish in a global deluge.- 2 Peter 2:4,5.
"like courageous Noah?"

Okay. Show me one SHRED of evidence that there was a global flood.

The little dog laughed

And the dish ran away with the spoon.

Well I will have to jump in and say you have to be more specific... There absolutely was a Flood that did happen Globally and the Evidence is around the globe in the form of cities under several hundred feet of water scattered around the globe....

But the Biblical Story of water covering the earth to the tops of all land masses ... That didn't happen.... But if you were sitting in a nice bungalow on the French coast and a 400 foot tsunami hit and when it settled down the Ocean Level was 100 foot higher in a matter of hours you might think it a Global Flood...

Check out APOLEGETICS... Biology, science, even the DEGREE of how the earth rotates and sits PROVES there is a CREATOR.. It's ok. You can only deny Him for so long. God bless you all. Denial must be a hard place to be.

You cannot be saved from destruction unless you are person in good standing with Jehovah and baptized member of Jehovah Witnesses. How do you refute that statement?

Organizations that will be destroyed by God.

To keep the list short, all of them with exception Jehovah Witnesses.

Yep and that is the "good news" that the JWs wake you up in the morning to tell you. Their God is going to kill you and all your family if you don't join their cult and this destruction is going to happen at any moment. It doesn't matter how good of a life you live, if you don't join and sell their literature door to door then God will kill you.

Sounds like wonderful news to me.
