Nope, you did not question the story someone else told you, you swallowed it hook, line, and sinker.
At 9ish, I heard about Jesus, and God... I believed it in my heart!
Then satan took me in my ignorance of him, and his ways!
being as evil as I could.... Drugs, sexual perversions with homos, and a lot of other ill crap!
40 years later, in jail for domestic violence, booked on 04/04/04,@ 0.04 seconds after midnight, I spent the best "40" days of my life, getting to KNOW our Savior in person!
He told me... it was I who left Him, but He was always there for me!
He showed me things about my life, and where He protected me!
Now, I know you'll just say that's a coincidence, and that I am delusional, or some crap like that...
But I WILL stand on the Mountain tops Proclaiming He IS Lord, and
the likes of you, and your father (satan) will NEVER prove me wrong!
Christ is real... Get used to it, Repent, or die in your sins!
Thank you Jesus for the Truth!
Amen!

You mean if I were brainwashed into believing the BS you believe then I would believe the BS you believe. It's a bit circular don't you think?
That's another thing that bugs me about you science haters. Your inability to distinguish the difference between the words "know" and "believe" is troubling.
I KNOW God is real....
You do not!
Repent, and seek Him... You'll be glad you did!

I'm calling you out on that initial broad brush assumption YaA, for putting yourself in the proverbial assumptive judgement seat!
Is that what your "faith" teaches?
That would be "terribly" hypocritical, in my opinion, based upon that fact that some of us may rather "practice" our faith quietly, with our thoughts under control and to ourselves, learned of orderly environments, rather than to spew ignorantly, that which stinks of the chaos of heathens and hedonism.
Catholic?
Are there people of other faiths that have been saved?
I have no doubt!
Did Paul shut up in Acts? NO!
So please provide the verse, or verses that says I should shut up, and then we both can get off topix!

First of all,as you know,we are not bound by the old testament.
I try to live my life according to the teachings of Jesus,as you also know
In your case,I would do what Jesus taught.
As he was led to his death on the cross by unbelievers,he did not clamor for their death.
"Forgive them Father,for they know not what they do"
Based on his teachings,I would ,and have done do the same you....
Yet the supposed father does not forgive them.
The bible clearly sees non belief as the greatest of sins. An unforgivable sin.
This stance is not just.
Without evidence, one should not expect belief.
Yes and Amen

Just because we dont know an answer yet does not mean we are so stupid to fill the gaps with

If we'd done that we'd still be in the caves praying to keep the germs away.
How dare you people make good use of modern science, that people died for, and yet show it no respect.
If you really truly believe in your God then you should NEVER EVER EVER go to a doctor again.
I know the answer even if you do not!
God is real!
Repent, and Trust in Jesus...
You WILL be glad you did!

More like so as not to alter the original works, in it's original form (as stated as SHOULD BE with in the book its self).
Ya maroon.
So... taking the 10 commandments, and re-writing them, changing the Sabbath to Sunday is the original texts?
Look!
Do you Believe Jesus died on the Cross one time, for all sins,
past, and future, that you do not have to do anything, but Love the Lord, your neighbor, and your enemies, and Trust in Jesus???
Or does mass, and calling a man "Father" negate Christ's teachings?
Yes and Amen

Just wondering, some people prefer the audio options of having things being read to them, rather than reading for themselves.
Question, with hypothetical scenario.
You're walking down a street and see two beggars. Beggar one is male, down on his luck, with a family to take care of. That beggar will take what ever kindness passers by spare to him, gratefully, with only the promise to do what is right with what is given.
Beggar two is a known harlot per say, and offers you continued wicked pleasures for what ever passers bys spare, and just takes and takes and takes, continually squandering and indulging only herself, with out a care for others around her.
Who you going to charitably, in "good faith", "donate" to?
(Be advised-your answer will speak volumes of your character)
I had a Preacher once, tell of a drunkard begging for money at his church, He gave the man $20, and all the rest said "You know that he's gonna buy a bottle of booze with that money!".
He said yes!
It might be the bottle that brings him to his knees (paraphrasing)!
Give to both!
Yes and Amen

<quoted text>So you think Catholics, the first formal religion of Jesus was just not hearing that still small inaudible voice of the holy ghost, thus could not understand the bible?
Slice this any way you wish, it still points to your philosophy as flawed.
Catholics think they are following the bible correctly, just as every sect of every religion does. But of course you think yours is correct and theirs is not. Who would have guessed?
"Catholics think they are following the bible correctly"
I've no doubt they think that!
Like the Mormons... IF they'd read an un-altered Bible, they'd see the Truth!

Yaa says "40 years later, in jail for domestic violence, booked on 04/04/04,@ 0.04 seconds after midnight, I spent the best "40" days of my life, getting to KNOW our Savior in person!"

"At 0.04 seconds?"
LOL! A NEW detail.
This tale grows and grows.

How many other ways do you think you can work
the "magic 4" into your story?
Maybe you saw the "4 Horsemen" while you were riding in the police car?
Perhaps you were the 4th case on the docket?
The courtroom and your cell BOTH HAD 4 WALLS! Yes! That's it!

The most perfect maxims and examples for regulating your social conduct and domestic economy, as well as the best rules of morality and religion, are to be found in the Bible.... The moral principles and precepts found in the scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws. These principles and precepts have truth, immutable truth, for their foundation.... All the evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.... For instruction then in social, religious and civil duties resort to the scriptures for the best precepts.
AMEN!
I want to start a movement "Truth in Government"!
IF you work for the government, and caught lying with the intention of deception... Gone, history, No retirement,
never to work in Government again!
Anyone not signing the bill into law... has something to hide...
Out the door!
