I suggest that people don't believe anything I post as truth, as I have admitted on many occasions I only have concepts of what might or might not be true.

We all do.

You go a step farther, in promoting some provocative questions. But you get trapped in a snare of overgeneralizing. Sometimes people fall for it too.

EXACTLY!
The bible is the book of confusion.
Thousands of christian beliefs ALL using the same holy bible, and inspired words, to prove their own conflicting doctrines.
To this day educated theologens around the world disagree with each other over terminology of bible meanings.
Educated religious translators argue with each other over Greek and Hebrew writings with no clear winner in sight.
Wouldn't an educated person like REGINA M. believe that God would make sure his words were crystal clear to all?
The fighting goes on today, in regards to the meanings of the bible.
Its been a catastrophic failure to educated mankind........and a crutch for those that live in fear.
Yep, reality isn't kind to these religious terrorists.

The Bible sure didn't help the two sides come together in 1861.

Looking at it objectively, I don't believe the Bible stopped any wars and it sure as heck seems to have contributed to several.

I wish their imaginary god would learn how to be more clear.

In 1861, was slavery morally right or wrong?

What day is the Sabbath?

What "laws" did Jesus change and what laws did he not change?

What is idol worship exactly?

etc..

I would DIP them in evil if necessary ... to teach them some humility.
But then of course I am not a creator, and don't believe in a creator ... so what I believe is all simple-minded folly.

That would indeed be mean and unjust.

If they were brainwashed as children, does that still mean that a loving god will punish them for eternity?

Seems so.

Imagine being an innocent child not knowing any better, punished by some psycho god for all eternity!

That doesn't sound like any god worthy of my worship. Pass.

Quote: No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
Its called a "Bible"....the Sacred Infallible Inspired Word of God...
The Bible are only words - thus any "dwelleth in us" is through a thought we have with our mind or consciousness. THus Self makes this determination to believe, and not the Bible.

Why don't you believe Jesus?

Prooftexting (sometimes "proof-texting" or "proof texting") is the practice of using isolated quotations from a document to establish a proposition. Using discrete quotations is generally seen as decontextualised. Critics note that such quotes may not accurately reflect the original intent of the author,[1] and that a document quoted in such a manner may not in fact support the proposition for which it was cited when read as a whole.
Many ministers and teachers have used some version of the following humorous anecdote to demonstrate the dangers of prooftexting: "A man dissatisfied with his life decided to consult the Bible for guidance. Closing his eyes, he flipped the book open and pointed to a spot on the page. Opening his eyes, he read the verse under his finger. It read, "Then Judas went away and hanged himself" (Matthew 27:5b) Closing his eyes again, the man randomly selected another verse. This one read, "Jesus told him,'Go and do likewise.'" (Luke 10:37b)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proof_texting
Its kinda like they use the Holy Scriptures as combination of tarot cards, fortune cookies and a secret treasure map... Zig zagging from verse, chapter and verse as if the Blessed Apostles revealed the faith that way. Anyone on Earth could design a Christianity if they were allowed to interpret the Bible that way. Obviously, thousands have.

Why don't you believe Jesus in the non-canonical?

If one is to acknowledge what you have said as "true", then you also haven't even done what you have stated.

Sounds like the same process Catholicism uses.....
- when utilizing only a portion of Jesus, you do the same thing as non-Catholics....moving from verse to verse to find some sort of coalition between them.

But alas, your point is only applied to those who you object.

Well I just did the same to you, because all denominations do the same.

As a historian, I use the same methodology to Jesus as to Socrates.
Both are equally probable to have been actual historical figures.
As to the deification of both, unvalidated by evidence.
G O D

You aren't much of a historian. The paper trail exists starting 500 years after the death of Socrates and Plato, and consists of only a couple of sources.

Jesus, had the N.T., and the Early Church Fathers within 100 years of his death.

Socrates was never deified. Plato had more potential.

What's the difference between 1) believing and 2) accepting or "receiving" Him?

Why does St. James say:

24 You see now that it is by deeds, and not only by believing, that someone is justified.

I had to snip for space. Besides, everyone knows its 19th century quotes taken-out-of-context. We already told you what Catholic teaching is. I don't know why you dig this stuff up.
It seems like you and Ox are more interested in the thrill of antagonizing us then any real interest in truth. To me, its desperate of you to search old snippets like this. I guess I can see where you're coming from. It can't be easy for career deacons like yourself to get hit with the truth. You must feel like you ran into a brick wall. So you gotta scratch and claw for any 'justification' to keep the protesting going.
In the end, it'll be your words as they stand before God and that's that. I would hope you can reflect on that and start acting like the Christ you say you follow.
Brick wall? Not the Roman Catholic church certainly. A crumbling wall best describes the RCC.

You said, quote, " I would hope you can reflect on that and start acting like the Christ you say you follow." End quote.

Thank you for the tip. By the way, when you leave your confessional and the priest tells you to do 10 hail marys and 5 Our Fathers let me know how Mary helps you act, and act is the operative word, like Jesus Christ.
