I am not "going to waste my time" responding to "exaggerated (blown-out of proportion) anti-catholic Protestant BS that you "fundies" are so famous for!! Again--the "only evil" that is "clearly evident" is the slander, distorted lies and bible only self and mis-interpreted (deception) of the TRUTH of Jesus Christ and His One True Catholic Church, which is ON THIS FORUM---AND--- of Sacred Scripture that you Protestants have become "experts at spreading" which (I will add) is to your own demise and destruction!!!<quoted text>
Well why don't you answer his question hojo, instead of giving such a stupid answer.
You don't know yourself do you.
I don't thing anyone one does except maybe they just decided it was on a need to know bases. Or to cover up their evil plots,

I am not God Michael! But in the day od Sodom and Gamorrah, there were not 5 good people to be found.
God maybe slow but He is sure and He is never late Michael, like in the day of Noah, God will destroy the earth again because of sin and it will happen in His timing not mine or doomsday prophets.
You don't believe God can save a prostitute, is their sin any greater then mine.
When Moses lead the children of Israel through the dessert, for 40 years there was only 2 people of that generation who left Egypt entered the promise land. They all died off in the dessert. He wiped out all the memeories of Egypt and its evil from among His people.
The Bible says only a dog returns to its vomit, well the children of Israel, every time they hit a hard time desired to go back to Egypt and complained all the time.
They forgot they were slaves in Egypt, they were desiring things they never had.
God gave them freedom, and they wanted to return to slavery.
Like many of us today god frees us from our sins and we desire to return to it.
You need to let go of you understand of what you think God is and why He does what He does, and believe everything
He does is for our good.
Read Jeremiah 29 Michael Its a letter to Gods people who were in exile its beautiful .

4 This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says to all those I carried into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: 5 Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce. 6 Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease. 7 Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper. 8 Yes, this is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says:Do not let the prophets and diviners among you deceive you. Do not listen to the dreams you encourage them to have. 9 They are prophesying lies to you in my name. I have not sent them, declares the Lord.
10 This is what the Lord says:When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my good promise to bring you back to this place. 11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord,plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you, declares the Lord,and will bring you back from captivity.[b] I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you, declares the Lord,and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.

Hoho, are you mentally capable of dealing with the topic at hand? If so, please respond. If not then you are just blowing smoke.:)

I wish that would happen for you Jethro. But as you know, God doesn't work that way.
For example, as a kid, I prayed and prayed for a bicycle. Nothing, because God doesn't work that way.
So I stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness.
That's how it works.
#427295 Mar 13, 2013
Thank you Michael, but I'm still confused.
People say Jesus loves me.
But God the Father must be angry because I frequently work on Sunday, eat shellfish, and have lustful thoughts.
Plus Jesus spoke in parables, because he wanted to make it difficult to understand. Plus I have never seen or spoken to any Holy Spirit. Not even a picture! Does he have a beard like Father and Son?
But who cares, for all the good this Holy Spirit did in guiding the RCC into sex-abuse cover-up for decade after decade. How did that guidance work out?
It's looking more and more like the three amigos are up there amusing themselves playing tricks on us all the time.
#427296 Mar 13, 2013
I have read the Bible. You are forgetting so much.
Jesus has some little children killed by a bear because they were being children and mocked a supposed prophet. Since when is just being a child a capital crime?
Or how come Jesus could not destroy one enemy army, because they had chariots made of iron?
#427297 Mar 13, 2013
LTM says ..........We are all sinners.
Michael says......what sins are so bad that you are committing that will keep you outside the gates of heaven?
If you know that sin is bad, why can't you control your bad actions?
People quit smoking because they know its bad for their health.
People quit drinking alcohol because they know it can shorten their lives.
Why can't you stop sinning if you believe sin means great balls of fire for your future?
I don't understand.
I can't think of any sin that I have committed that is so terrible it would mean eternal damnation.

FM says....... God the Father must be angry because I frequently work on Sunday, eat shellfish, and have lustful thoughts.
Michael says.....Me too! and all the other catholics except HOJO and CLAY.....they never do anything naughty.....
....what about all the catholics who pre-determined themselves not to go to mass one sunday but go to a sporting event or the mall, then they go to confession saying they are "HEARTLY SORRY" for not attending mass. They are not heartly sorry for anything, they missed mass willingly. The sin should still be in effect.
Its all BS!

Good point. As Catholics, we were always taught...
Willingly miss one weekly Mass = eternal torture.
They call that "Free Will."

"They forgot they were slaves in Egypt" (???)
Guess what! Everyone forgot.
The Egyptians also forgot. So did all their neighbors and trade partners. Not a single written word or reference about the slavery and exodus elsewhere.
THAT makes me skeptical.

Do You Know God? Or do you Just Believe in Him?
Do you know God PERSONALLY or do you have an intimate personal relationship with hem
Do you ONLY KNOW what YOUR CHURCH says about Him.
The Apostle Paul wrote...
Php 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
Php 3:11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
DO YOU JUST
1.BELIEVE IN YOUR CHURCH...
2.BELIEVE IN GOD...
3. DO YOU HAVE A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP ESTABLISHED WITH GOD,... through His Son Jesus Christ?
DOES GOD KNOW YOU...
Can it be said of you... as God said of Abraham...
Gen_18:19 For I know him/ABRAHAM, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.
-->DO YOU SAY AS JOSHUAH SAID..
Jos_24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD,
choose you this day whom ye will serve;
whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood,
or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell:
-->but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
COULD IT BE SAID OF YOU..BY evil spirits ...(GOD'S AND YOUR COMMON ENEMIES)..FROM THE NEITHER WORLD..
as the evil spirit... said to the seven sons of one Sceva
Act 19:15 And the evil spirit answered and said,
Jesus I know, and
Paul I know; but
who are ye?
Is Christ abiding in you.... to the point that you are protected from Evil Spirits...by His presence.
Is Christ abiding IN YOU...that what He said might be fulled...
Joh_15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
WILL JESUS SAY ...when you stand before Him..
Mat_7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Mat_25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
Luk_13:27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
AGAIN I ASK ...WHAT IS YOU PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD?
#427306 Mar 13, 2013
IT is the attitude of the heart that God sees.
When we view through the Scriptures in the New Testament the events of our Lord Jesus,when he witnessed such faith even in non-Jews,we see clearly that God looks upon the heart.
I am not saying that if a Buddhist or non-Christian prays to their entity,that God answers because of their attitude of heart,but that God sees the earnest desire of the human heart.We cannot know the extent of how God perceives the petitions of any human being,but that God acts in first of all His MERCY.God does not answer prayers of all human beings just because they are kneeling before a shrine,or ancestral homage,or stateue of some sort.BUT God looks upon the heart.There are people who struggle and plead their case before God,and do not know that JESUS died for their sins,yet God sees their anguish,and attitude of heart and He hears them, and divises a way for that soul to eventually find H I M.
We are hearing so much today of non-Christians who are finding God without any witness of Christian endeavor,but because GOD sees their plight and knows the inner cry of their soul toward the UNKNOWING Creator.It is important for all of us Christians to realize because of truth,that God is Creator,and He does want to have fellowship with all human beings HE created.
There is no doubt that God is the GODHEAD of the Father-Son-and Holy Spirit,and we are blessed to have received that revelation from the Triune God we worship,in Spirit and in Truth.Therefore we must realize as well that God is not willing that any should perish,and that all who are seeking Him will eventually find HIM,and not unbe-knowst to God Himself.
You are going to pray to Mary no matter what I say here,so I cannot waste my time in refuting such.But I do believe that Jesus truly wants us to pray to His Father,through Him,because we cannot in any way limit the magnitude of God's capability in answering our prayers,no matter what they are.
God is the Trinity or GODHEAD:Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.ALL of which are three distinct Personages that work in total harmony and congruency,all sufficient,and all efficient in Power,Might,and PURPOSE.God sends the Angels to obtain both information and to give messages of hope to us.Not that I have ever seen an Angel,but who knows,we see Angels unaware of their true identity before God.
Nevertheless we do not pray to ANGELS,or being outside of the realm of this sphere we know, OTHER than to God our Father,who IN Christ knows our every need,with the HELP and presence of the Holy Spirit,who works in P o w e r.
I do not see intercession any greater from the saints who supposedly gone before us,than those prayers sent by brothers and sisters in Christ we have known day to day in our lives.I have been greatly blessed by the prayers of men and women of GOD I met all through my own years on this earth.
I basically will not petition someone who I have never known to beseech my Lord for me,when I can go to the Lord Himself in the magnitude of the OMNIPRESENCE of the Godhead,that knows no limits.
You can pray through Mary all you want,and if some here attack your reasoning for doing so,they must realize that you are going to follow your own conscience no matter what we say.On the other hand,if we choose to not pray to Mary or though h e r,that is not adding to our own limitation,because we also have found through the Mediation of Christ alone His all consuming power to work with His Father on our behalf,through the unlimited power of the Holy Spirit.

I guess its the way you look at things the children of Israel took in account of all people they were called the children of God.

BIBLICAL ETHICS ~ Did God Kill Children?(Second Kings 2:23-25)
Posted on Tuesday, September 13, 2011 09:13:40 AM by SeanG200
....One last point before we bullet point the complete idea behind the Holy and Rightful judgement from the Judge of all mankind. there were 42 persons killed by two bears. Obviously this would require many more than 42 people. Why? What happens when you have a group of ten people and a bear comes crashing out of the bushes in preparation to attack? Every one will immediately scatter! In the debate I pointed out that freezing 42 people and allowing the bears time to go down the line to kill each one would be even more of a miracle than this skeptic would want to allow. So the common sense position would require a large crowd and some sort of terrain to cut off escape. So the crowd would probably have been at least a few hundred.
Also, this holy man of God was coming back from a mission, he would have had an entourage with him, as well as having some sort of head-covering on as pictured above. So, what do these cultural and historical points cause us to rightly assume? That the crowd could not see that the prophet was bald. Which means they would have had to of gotten physical forcefully removing the head covering. Which means also that the men with the prophet Elisha would have also been overpowered. So lets bullet point the points that undermine the skeptics viewpoint:
✔ The crowd was in their late teens to early twenties;
✔ they were antisemitic (this is known from most of the previous passages and books);
✔ they were from a violently cultic city;
✔ the crowd was large;
✔ the crowd had already turned violent.
