finish the verse;
John 6:63
The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life.
It takes faith to believe the 'words' are spirit and life.
Sorry Marge, the Bible passages you teach on, were already taught once.
I know you people like to believe everything got 'misunderstood' until y'all arrived, but the fact remains: The Apostles verbally communicated the teachings of Jesus Christ. You can look to the writings of the first century Christians (if you dare) to get an idea of what was actually taught. Or... You can remain ignorant of the truth and continue designing your own Christianity.
You been given chance after chance to rescind your false teachings. You been proven to be in error over and over. Is there anything anyone can do for you? I can't believe the arrogance it takes to undo direct teachings from Jesus Christ like that. Mar, the Eucharist couldn't have been anymore blunt from Jesus Christ. Are you guys literal word for word Bible alone people or not?

It's too bad that all of you preachers of supposed truth only digest and regurgitate your own words.
If you take a peek out of your personalized cults you would see that those in other religions are every bit as certain that they own truth as are you.
Fools play with their own folly.

I have not decided which. It is a no concern.

YES! I was in religion and also thought I knew that a god was real.
Now I know that I don't know.
One thing I believe, is that I am simply one form of life with no more value (except to my self) than other forms of life, and that there is no spiritual realm. Emotions are simply normal. We can be euphoric one moment and sad the next. From my perception, that is not a spirit moving us ... it is us moving emotion.

**********

Emotion is the e (out) mo (move) tion (action): The action of the outward moving of our feelings.

Our flesh feels such things as heat, cold and pain.

We have a spirit within us that feels sadness, bitterness, rejection, etc.

You cannot express heat, cold or pain onto another person. But you can show sadness, anger, joy, etc. that others can feel.

You are a bitter person, and when you express that in your posts, no one on here dances for joy.

Cheer up. Your spirit WILL be effected by and evil OR A GODLY spirit. Your choice.

When people admit to hating evil, they have to first believe that evil is IN others.
I don't believe that. I believe some of us are extremely wounded by life, and in turn become bitter and vile in how we treat others.
But from the behavior of theologians who tortured and killed other while preaching love ... it is plain that religion never solved the problems it promised to cure.
It simply motivated people to be violent in the guise of following the supposed will of gods, using the lame excuse that others were evil and they were holy.
June VanDerMark:

And perhaps some people searched out, and misinterpretted theologians and used their writings to promote violence, and revenge, out of their own bitterness and anger?

Some believe denial is not a chosen lifestyle.

Clay allows others to control him...

He Lets other offend Him...He allows their actions to control his re-action.

It is obvious that he has no real peace...

The Bible says ...

Psa_119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law/word: and nothing shall offend them.

Isa_26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

All devout believers are prone to justify the words and actions of their own theologians.

Augustine promoted Catholic war as just and ordained by "god," and many Catholics to this day revere his dogmas as the most holy of all Catholic theologians.

June ....like Clay.... is allowing God....(Whom she says she does not believe in)...

to control here every waking moment...

She has spent day after day out of control and letting the God that she despises decide her thoughts and reactions against him...

Isn't it strange when that one which we rave and rant becomes our

obsession calls the shots...becomes our director and controls our

reaction...

This is the epitome of what hatred does...

I just watched the other part of that video of the Pentecostal minister who converted to Catholicism. I feel sad for you and your husband. People absolutely will not leave their careers and admit they were wrong.

June VanDerMark:

I believe philosophy to be an exercise in reasoning viewpoints, to an end which is truth. So if viewpoints are truth, which some on here view as one's own perspective, then they are philosophers.

I strive not to allow the five senses to control my life...

Faith does not depend upon what a person....

feels...sees.. hears...taste or smells.

Faith is having confident expectations in What God has Spoken forth and

being fully persuaded in your own heart that what God has spoken forth .

He will perform/do.

While I appreciate your interest in the destiny of my eternal soul..

you need not waste your time...

2Ti_1:12 ........ I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

Which story is right?

First you said that a Pentecostal minister converted to CC.

Then you said that people ABSOLUTELY would not leave their careers and admit that they were wrong.

Your questuin rests upon proof which is in your assumption, which tends to have a bit of circular reasoning.
