That's what I was taught as a child, yet, I guess the RCC
has done away w "limbo" Purgatory..
Still though, my mother was frantic w baptism..
With all of her grandchildren, even though myself and
my siblings are not raising our children Catholic.
She feared for their souls..
I find that sad..It breaks my heart she would believe, to her core,
such nonsense.
Yet, we all "dedicated" our children to a Protestant church, for her..

Limbo and Purgatory are seperate things.
Purgatory is closely related to the Jewish (non Scriptural) concept of Gehenna (A Hellenistic import to Judaism).
Limbo as an "after-life daycare" is a Catholic invention. It is much along the lines of Jewish Sheol except for the age imposition.
If I'm not mistaken, both "limbo" and "purgatory" were Catholic inventions. At the time, pennance(read money) could be offered by the family of the departed to "save the soul" of those who were .."bad" people.

A money game.

Again, I'm just going by memory here, I don't study religions like I used to.

The bible doesn't dictate that because we are washed of our sins we are morally superior.
I think it does. We are told that we are not fit to be in heaven in our native state, and that we need to be washed of our sins to be fit to be with Jehovah.

Abnormal has nothing to do with being desirable or undesirable. All it is is a deviation from what is common, typical, usual. As far as being blind goes, that is abnormal because typically, normally and usually, people can see.
That says nothing to them being good or bad, desirable or undesirable.
Yes, geniuses are abnormal, which is why they get so much attention and are always famous, because they deviate the norm.
Being abnormal only makes something different, but not good or bad.
As far as being gay goes, that is also abnormal because it deviates the norm. Again, it has nothing to do with good or bad, right and wrong, just abnormal.
Many words have two meanings, one neutral and purely descriptive, the other judgmental. "Abnormal" is one of those words, as are "critical" and "argue". This, we hear of critical thought and arguing for the legalization of marijuana - neutral terms - and we hear of critical and argumentative people - judgment laden usages.

What madness? And how could reason be to blame for any madness?

I agree. You say that like it's a bad thing.

As you said, reason is a tool. It can be used to service any agenda.

We won't do that by abandoning reason.

If someone believes another is not being truthful and they speak out against it, of course they are speaking out on ethical grounds
There is nothing ethical about what you did either in your comment to Grace or in your mischaracterizing what I said.
Skombolis wrote:
You even went so far as to lie and claim you were talking about "gratuitous alienation"
You're going to tell me what you think I meant and then call me a liar because you think I contradicted that? This is what I mean about your use of the words "lie" and "liar." There is nothing ethical at all about what you do. You misunderstand what you read and then attack others based on that misunderstanding.

You are the biggest liar on Topix. I was going to say in America but caught myself:)
But you are just a run-of-the-mill Christian like Trifecta, Dr. Shrink, Counter_Strike, Blind Man, Red Apples, simplyput and LAWEST. Congratulations to all of you.

The bit about being judged by your works might be relevant.
That's assuming there is a cosmic mega-being who is going to judge every human being who ever lived.
And if [your] assumption to that is no or you don't have to worship Jesus Christ to please that 'cosmic mega being' as you say...then you do so at [your]own risk, not mine.

The god of the bible doesn't have much time for disabled people. The scriptures are there and they tell us how your god prefers the company of able people.
He sure healed a lot of disabled people though.

lol. People that embrace the Atheistic religion, being called a bastard is a compliment to them. A more suitable description of atheists are the biggest azz clowns to ever walk the face of the earth. Or better yet---simply how YHWH described atheists to His servant...as simply Fools.

You must be special.
Newsflash!! Death is a part of life. And children die as well. Does the gunman share any blame? what about his mother that kept guns in the house knowing her son had a mental disease, does she get any blame?

The US Supreme Court also said that black people weren't human and were to be treated like cattle.
But the Supreme Court changed that ruling. Let me know when the Supreme Court changes their ruling about Atheism and Religion.

What a beautiful religion you have. It has left you disconnected and self-centered.

Your soul is your concern, it not have nothing to do with me.
I very connected to life I no know what you talking about.

As far as being Self-Centered? concerning my soul I am. No one can save your soul, except you. YHWH and Satan consider the most valuable precious thing you possess, is your soul.

You want to give it to Hell and Satan by continuing believing Satan or a Soul don't exist, or continuing to reject Jesus Christ as myth--then go ahead. What you want me to do about that? that your decision, is your soul, do as you like with it.

What is odd is anyone who report to another Topix blogger what he is doing at a lake.
Not really.

Skombolis apparently has no concept of travel or vacation judging by his proxy comments, so perhaps Catcher was graciously allowing a menial laborer to vicariously enjoy his vacation with him.
