June says......I suggest if the pope was on the street in Iran without his body guards, he would not live more than an hour.
Michael says......Pope Benedict claimed that God was his protector, yet without the swiss army guard and a bullit proof pope-mobile he would have been killed long ago.
.........so much for God is his protector...
Those theologians never did rely on a god to protect them. Yet they preach that "God answer's prayers."

Hilarious stuff!

You're right.
Con-artists will never agree. Just look at this board, or history. It's a con... and they'll never agree because there is no real evidence, no proof, very little logic or reason, just myth and self-centered wishful thinking.
90% could truthfully say -- "this is how my parents told me I'd be saved by God and anyone who doesn't agree is doomed."
Nothing is allowed to register in their thinking but their religious indoctrinations.

It applies to those in all cults who believe they will be rewarded with bliss and ONLY bliss for behaving comparable to trained seals on earth.

I am an agnostic. I view all religions as man-made.
I was really pointing out the same fear aspect as you acknowledge.
Interesting that now the larger mainstream denominations have figured out that the old teachings on Hell are a little too extreme, to the point of being completely absurd.
So we've gone from Biblical fire and brimstone to something far more benign -- the absence of God's presence.
Instead of being tortured mercilessly for eternity, you'll now just be lonely.
Literally.

There will always be confusion as long as people like you take the Bible and form your own theology. I'm sure everyone on this forum agree, anyone can grab a Bible and look for whatever they wish to see. Many many religions have been born since Luther and Calvin invented Sola Scripture.
I told you, if you're serious about Christianity, then either look to the Church that compiled the NT or read the writings of the Disciples of the Apostles and early Church fathers.
Many of you wouldn't dare do this, because you'll be proven in error. Anything to prevent you from being exposed to the truth and have to admit you were wrong!!
They read the same Bible as you.

Your own church has flip-flopped on meanings and dogma many times.

What's the big deal? It delusional. It's like the child-sex scandal never happened, or that it had no meaning.

Sorry, but the Catholic church is certainly subject to error -- of the most ungodly kind known to man no less.

This is the most centralized, top-down religion the world has ever seen. You can't say Jesus was leading the church while it was protecting so many child-abusers around the world.

Even I know what Jesus said about such things. To ignore that is delusional.

It's called "faith in god," not the "science of religion."
Some folks don't deal with that fact very well.
Some call names.
Some become comedians.
Your friend has embraced both.

I did read you have a son with disabilities as well. As sincere as I possibly can be Clay, repent and receive Christ by faith and stop trying to please God with keeping certain rules and doing good works....you'll never make it.
Your son may not understand the Gospel and I believe with all my heart that he will be in glory with the Father when he passes from this earth whether he is baptized or not(catholic church doesn't say this about your son). Your son will go to Heaven, don't miss out on that Clay.
thank you.

I gotta admit, your following quote is troubling:

"Clay, repent and receive Christ by faith, and stop trying to please God with keeping certain rules and doing good works...you'll never make it"

I don't get it. That doesn't seem like something the Apostles would tell people. If that is your motto, its not good. I believe that mentality ushered in the problems our society has today. Everyone seems to boast they're 'saved' while hustling money and pimping hoes.

If you were to tell your niece that, and she turns from the Eucharist, you are going to be held responsible for that. This teaching of yours is against Jesus Christ. Its new and strange, Chuck.

Catholics put the mythical Jesus into a stangle-hold in the claims that come hell or high water, Jesus was going to love and save ONLY Catholics.

They stamped their feet and stamped the name holy on their new testament, and they dragged Jewish Jesus along as their testimonies of faith in the Catholic confessionals and assisting in Catholic exorcisms and all other types of behavior unbecoming to a Jew.

And they aren't finished YET!

Does your son take the eucharist Clay..if he doesn't what happens to him? Has he been baptized...if he hasn't what happens to him?

Science teaches that in utero life in a woman is created from the woman's ovum and the male's sperm that in turn results in the first cell of what will become if allowed a human baby.

Cows and horses and monkeys and other mammals have babies by the same process.

There's nothing special about humans. Humans however ARE far more ignorant and arrogant than are the other animals.

The Woman’s Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred objects … by Barbara G. Walker.
Christmas tree
The Christmas tree is still one of the Western world’s most beloved symbols, although it had no meaning in the Judeo-Christian context but was drawn almost entirely from pagan tree worship. Preserved through the centuries in central Europe, it was unknown in English-speaking countries until after 1840, when Prince Albert the German bridegroom of Queen Victoria, brought the custom from his native land to England. The Teutonic Christmas tree dated back to Yule celebrations, along with the candles, gifts, and sacrificial pig with an apple in its mouth. But there were pagan elements from southern Europe also. Certain priest of Attis called dendrophori,“tree-bearers,” annually selected a pine tree from the sacred grove (pinea silva) to carry the effigy of the god into his Roman temple. The dendrophori were charged with the duty of setting up and decorating the tree, upon which the god was presented for sacrifice.(1) Perhaps this was the origin of the custom of hanging small male effigies, such as gingerbread men, on the Christmas tree.
Like all evergreens, such as the holly and ivy, the pine tree stood for a promise of eternal life because it kept its vital appearance even when other plants died off during the winter. Naturally this applied only to the living pine tree, lighted and decorated in the woods where it stood. Trees that were cut and brought indoors would soon become brown and dead, thus contradicting the symbolic meaning.

There is also scriptural support - Jeremiah 10:1-5

Ex-Jew Catholics didn't only massacre the Jews. They tried in vain to massacre the religion of the Jews.

There ought to be a law against such horrors, but once the religious blight got started, it gathered more and more lies in its path of destruction, and it's unfortunate that the end is nowhere in "sight."

You would think after 70 years one would have been aware of this,

Post Hoc, Ergo Propter Hoc (Literally: "After this, therefore because of this"): This type of false cause occurs when the writer mistakenly assumes that, because the first event preceded the second event, it must mean the first event caused the later one. Sometimes it does, but sometimes it doesn't. It is the honest writer's job to establish clearly that connection rather than merely assert it exists. Example:
