Hey again seeker!<quoted text>
He is Catholic, and I do not think that he acts like Catholics are supposed to act. I was raised as one and went to Catholic school for eight years. As a Catholic, one is not supposed to just jam scriptures down people's throat and tell them they are going to hell. That's a pointless exercise. I have mentioned this to him before, but it only makes him angry. In my personal opinion, anybody who outright wishes that someone else will end up in hell, might be right behind them in line.
43 You have heard that it was said,Love your neighbor[i] and hate your enemy. 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
1 Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3 Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brothers eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother,Let me take the speck out of your eye, when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brothers eye.
Jesus was a Jew. They even sometimes called him Rabbi. Muhammad just made that angle up that everyone is a Muslim, but it isn't true. In fact, Muhammad was supposed to be a descendant of Ishmael who was a son of Abraham that was born via his Egyptian slave, but Issac was born of his wife Sarah. According to the Bible, the covenant was made with Issac. And, after that, we see all past scriptures come from the descendants of Issac and none came from the descendants of Ishmael, until the "supposed" prophet Muhammad. And even he had to borrow scriptures from the descendants of Issac and had none from the descendants of Ishmael to use, even though he was supposed to be a descendant of Ishmael. And, not only did he do that, but he also incorporated the Kaaba, Black Stone and the idea of the jinn into Islam. The pagan Meccans of his time and the town he grew up in all revered the Kaaba and Black Stone before Islam, but the Jews and Christians, who's religion he claimed to complete, never did.
Jesus was son of Mary the granddaughter of Jacob son of Issac!
You're right, Jesus was of Jewish descent, but i said about his religion, he was a Muslim and, and i provided it with a verse in the holy Quran before this comment, and you can see the link!
The prophet Mohammed (Peace upon him) was a pure Ishmaelite son of Abraham, there's no doubt about it!
Ohh, i didn't know that you're Catholic!
In fact, between all Christians, i feel the Orthodox are more realistic and closer to us more than all sects of the Christianity!
Maybe because it's an eastern church!
