Yeah, so much for unconditional love.
Gtown's Freudian slip, probably. Every time he wrote "conformation" in his post, he really meant confirmation -- as in confirming an order. It was too good to pass up! LOL

Well, I can now see God, in many many things, and perhaps it was a bad example, but my point is, when a person has been saved "born agaim", that person just KNOWS it, and will Never ever forget it. They may not be able to say 4:30 am on fri - Jan 15,1985, but they will Never forget that it took place.
It's a hard thing for anyone to explain, since the wind blows where it wills -you don't know where it's going, or where it's been, but you do Know that it touched you, as it came by.
Ps - it has Nothing to do with conforming, in order to be accepted, as katie suggest. No one can conform without God's power, and that's the entire reason He came and died for us.
He wants us just like we are (warts and all)
He does the conforming.:)
So God "conforms"?

He doesn't confirm?

So believing in a misogynistic male hierarchy religion changes what she said?
"""Prior to birth, the embryo/fetus is developing in suspended animation. What's in it for you to criminalize abortion when the embryo/fetus is neither a citizen nor included as part of the species of homo sapiens sapiens?""
In others words brainwashing helps you see things from a male hierarchy perspective?
To those of us who do not believe in mythology you apparently think babbling nonsense like this will scare us into your beliefs?
<quoted text>
You are an idiot....certifiable.
Catholicism is nothing but a fear-based ritual designed to keep the masses in line while those in authority steal land and wealth from those who believe differently. And using those fear-based rituals to steal the very lives of those who believe differently. There is nothing loving about it at all. And those who insist it is the one true religion have no clue beyond their spoon fed dogma. jmo

Besides, a loving God wouldn't need fear to keep its worshippers in line. Just like a loving parent doesn't need to use fear as a manipulative tool to keep their kids in line. Now a days we call that mental abuse.

<quoted text>Since Catholicism borrowed all of its pageantry, saint-worship, and rote chanting, from the pagans it was trying to eradicate, when the Catholics gave up and decided to try converting the pagans instead...there really isn't a whopping lot of difference in execution of the Catholic ceremony from pagan ones.
Perhaps that's where you became confused.
David27's comprehension skills are a bit lacking. S/he thinks I was talking about who raised me and has mistakenly believed my maternal grandmother solely raised me. Why should I bother to correct him/her? Anyone can go back and see I was responding to a post asking if I raised by Atheists and "godless" people since my posts display I'm such a soulless person...

Why should I waste any time on that BS crap? I filled 'em in, you've filled 'em in, others have put in their 2 cents... what more needs to be said? My initial post was self-explanatory... and still David27 didn't get it. S/he is beyond confused, imo.

Exactly right.
There are many Evangelicals who consider Catholics to be Pagans, anyway, in case these people have forgotten,
Maybe they're ashamed... since they spend so much time trying to be "better than" and "separate from" all the other religions before it.

Good to see you, Bitner!

You've clearly misunderstood his love story.
You need to pray to the Holy Spirit of God(who inspired the men who wrote it),to open up your heart and mind to be able to accept and comprehend it.
I think we all understand this "love for men story" as written directly from the imaginations of men.

Genesis 3:16
Unto the woman He said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

1 Corinthians 11:3
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

1 Corinthians 11:5-15
New International Version (NIV)
5 But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is the same as having her head shaved. 6 For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head.

7 A man ought not to cover his head,[a] since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. 8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; 9 neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. 10 It is for this reason that a woman ought to have authority over her own[b] head, because of the angels. 11 Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12 For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.

13 Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, 15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.
Ephesians 5:22-24
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the Saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

You should be more careful before calling people liars.

Btw, Ink? Circular logic is still illogical. So the whole thing of man coming from God, woman from man, man from woman through birth is nothing but an illogical explanation for a social hierarchy changing from matriarchy to patriarchy.
Women always knew they were the mothers of their children. Men, not so much. A patriarchal society demands women be subservient or the men are free to leave.
Look at the social ills in the present day, the ones you blame on legal abortion. To me it seems to the "unintended consequence" of a patriarchal society.
Chew on that for a bit and let me know if you have a thought or two about it.

Your inability to comprehend the FACT Morgana quoted YOUR words is allowing you to lie without your permission. Rather, let's say it this way, with circular logic.

Ink, there's no way to read those verses and think to self - women are not subservient, 2nd class citizens. Absolutely not! I mean what woman in their right mind would not want to be considered property by virtue of a father handing over his daughter to another man in holy matrimony? While it's fallen out of modern use, the bride often vowed to obey much like a good dog.

My Catholic Grandma began studying Paganism later in life. I have her tabletop Bible with Jesus' words in RED -- a collector's item I intend to keep until I'm done with it.
Why are you so dense? Why do you let your imagination run wild instead of being open to ways different from your own? You're a horrible name calling, judgmental, asexual individual who is too chicken to reveal their screen name everyone would know.
When I go to publish my life story, I'll let you know first.

Why do you profess belief in an outdated book? The entire book was written by Jewish people 2000 years ago. Now you are picking and choosing what is to be believed and lived by and what is not? WHY does the bible contain the OT in the first place? The NT is as misogynistic as the OT. Can't you read?
If nobody is following old Jewish law then nobody is following the bible...correct?
I think many parts of the Bible transcend time and are appicable today. Basically if Jesus said it, I believe.

Not so much as in past decades, but much progress remains for any semblance of equality. You only have to look around the abortion threads to know that many believe women who sleep around should pay the piper by giving birth. What happens after that doesn't seem to matter nearly as much. Perhaps not at all?
