Neither do you nor your pope or your Catholic Church.
Revelation 3:7 speaks plainly of Jesus having the key. In ancient Israel, the human king was in fact the steward of God, the true King of the land. Similarly, the divine Christ will be the steward of His Father's Kingdom. With that authority, Jesus could allow or disallow someone entrance into the Kingdom—but no man had or has that authority. Christ's statement in Matthew 16:19
meant that His apostles had authority to represent Him, to teach as He taught them and to be instruments in helping people live the way the Kingdom of God. Christ still lends His authority to His true ministers today to do the same work. Sadly, many falsely claim this authority and misuse it.
Matthew 16:19
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven: whatever you bind on earth will be bound in Heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed. in Heaven.

The gospels are about the grace of God..Jesus Christ
John 1:14
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Jesus is the one that is the TRUTH..Nettie is just promoting a sect...
Yet, one can lose his faith and his chance of salvation.

It is obvious that you resent my being consistent in defending/explaining my faith.
That is your problem.
I am not and have never attempted to convert anyone on the CF to Catholicism.
I do defend/explain my faith and will continue to do so.

Did you realize that you and lol and johnnytrunk spend more time bashing the Catholic faith than you do just sharing/explaining yours?
Odd..........

Today I am in a bad mood and because of that, being out of control of myself I can’t resist serving the brutal truth about the so called “soul”!

Our “soul” is nothing else but the more or less cognitive processes going on inside our brain, which is a biochemical construction, created by evolution and it can’t exist in any form than useless biological waste separated from our living body.

Its main purpose is first of all to make us breed efficiently and secondly to live long enough for the purpose of breeding and bringing up next generation.

Everything else is pastime activities.

The Bible isn't scientific proof, you moron.

According to the Bible, a bat is a bird, insects crawl on all fours, demons cause disease, and the earth is flat.

You're no better than people like Osama bin Laden, whose goal was to make the Word of God the law of the land, and drag humankind backward and down.

People like you are reprehensible.

If humans have a soul, and that soul informs a person's personality, then why do certain drugs change people's personalities?

If the soul can be affected by a drug, then the soul isn't really all that valuable, is it?

Get your heads out of your a$$e$ and admit the truth: the soul doesn't exist. All of our thoughts and emotions reside in the brain. Our personalities are determined by the way our brains function. When the brain is destroyed, we no longer exist.

I understand that it's very hard to accept that we don't live on after bodily death. Believe me, I would love to think that one day I will be reunited with the people I loved who are now deceased. But that simply isn't true.

So, since I know for a fact that I will never see my loved ones after they die, then while they are alive I do my best to let them know how much I care about them.

Life is finite, and therefore incredibly precious. Make the most of the time you have now, because that is all there is.

Get back to us when you have any objective evidence of what "God says".

So.... no, you can't provide any evidence to support your religions claim.

Can't you just admit that you don't have any evidence instead of puking your beliefs as "truth?

When a person suffers brain damage, what happens to their personality? It changes.

So, if the soul is your personality, then the soul is affected when your brain is damaged. That then is proof that the soul is dependent on the brain, and it also proves that the soul dies when the brain dies.

Otherwise, what happens? Does the altered soul revert back to its original form when we die? And exactly WHAT is the "original form" of the soul - was it the form it took when it first entered our body? That version of the soul is useless - it has no memories, so what good is it if it survives bodily death?

There is no afterlife, no heaven, no hell. There is nothing at all. We didn't exist before we were conceived, and we don't exist after we perish.

Sorry, folks, but the evidence is overwhelming and the logic irrefutable - there is no such thing as an eternal soul that is independent of the brain.

How could anyone believe in an independent soul that could leave our physical body and live on elswhere?
There are so many proofs on the opposite; we can see it almost every day how some people change due to brain damage.
One exciting example from back in 1848 when Phineas Gage had his frontal cortex blown away and by that changing totally his personality is well known.

It means no false doctrine or ravenous wolves will hurt me because I believe the Word of God, not Catholic Dogma.

Who cares that you are in a bad mood?

The soul is the very SPARK of life that NO MAN will ever replicate and evolution will NEVER evolve into.

Every other explanation is worthless, yours included.

Man has a soul, no matter what you think. A soul can be manipulated by the world and how the mortal affects it. If the soul accepts Christ, it is fixated on Christ like thinking. If not, it will bow to the worldly temptations. Like yours does. Now, here is a PERFECT scripture that explains it but it will be over your head and you will not accept it NOR understand it.

Romans 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace

Romans 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

Romans 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
