How do you explain Roman Catholics?

They claim God had his only son killed and put the Roman Catholic Church in charge of making it meaningful.

Yet after over 2000 years, only between 5% to 10% of humanity actually buys into this story enough to practice as taught.

Did God make a mistake?

Was God really striving for a 5% to 10% success rate - for something God himself created?

Or are these fine Catholic folks deluded?

I don't "editorialize" the interpretation of the bible
You edit out of your view-finder the scriptures that don't suit you, and you place high value on the ones that do suit you.

The moment you lay eyes on words from what you were taught is HOLY, the process fills you with POWER in the attitude that a god is speaking ONLY holy messages to you.

That is self-hypnosis, and it is what caused people to pick up swords and guns and kill their neighbors in the certainty that the god ordained the slaughter.

Words in these supposed holy books are dangerous for society as history proved over and over and over again.

Yet people seeking power from words in those books that they are certain came from "the gods" don't learn to leave the trouble-making words alone as their emotional highs are of the greatest importance to their egos.

On the day Christ was crucified, there were only 1 to 2% who remained with Jesus, when a week early, 90% cheered Him with palms.

Also, are you Atheist? If so, why on Earth would you give the chits about our religion if you don't believe it?

You can call yourself a Christian 'till you die if it pleases you, because I don't believe in any of the myths ... but I suggest you don't pretend that a Jew came to earth to save Christians, when the theology of the Jews clearly states that faithful Jews practice only Judaism.
You can only stretch a lie so far before it boomerangs.

Act 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

Act 17:27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

Act 17:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being;

For we are also his offspring.

American Theocracy, by Kevin Phillips. Published 2006

If religious extremism is only one large set of bodies in this fringe constellation [of Republican interest groups], it is a powerful one. That is why federal agencies reject scientific reports on ecological, stem cell, contraceptive, and abortion issues. They sponsor not only faith-based social relief, but faith-based war, faith-based science, faith-based education, and faith-based medicine.

Catholic Tradition is More Safe to Follow Than the Bible
"Like two sacred rivers flowing from paradaise, the Bible and divine tradition contain the word of God, the precious gems of revealed truths. Though these two divine streams are in themselves, on acount of their divine origin, of equal sacredness, and are both full of revealed truths, still of the two, tradition is to us more clear and safe." Catholic Belief, by Joseph Faa di Bruno, p 45.

American Theocracy … by Kevin Phillips.

Brewer Joseph Coors—the foundation father, at least in political terms—was closely involved during the 1970s and early 1980s in helping to fund and build four organizations that became linchpins of the GOP’s business-religious axis: the Washington-based Heritage Foundation, the Mountain States Legal Foundation, the council for National Policy (co-founded by preacher and author Tim LaHaye), and, more marginally, the Coalition and the Christian Reconstructionists who believe a theocratic type of government must be built before Jesus will return.

Preaching fear does not motivate people to be kind, as it has the exact opposite effect.

You continually pound out scriptures as though they will save mankind from eternal torment.

I suggest you give it and yourself a rest.

Those who want to read the bible already do, and they will glean from the words what suits them ... NOT what suits you.

American Theocracy … by Kevin Phillips.

Since at least 1776 the upstart sects have grown as the mainline American denominations have declined. And this trend continues unabated, as new upstarts continue to push to the fore.

I will continue to fulfill my charge that God has give me as a Minister of the Gospel....

Which charge is...

Ti 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

2Ti 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

2Ti 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

2Ti 4:5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

There is a heaven, forever day by day
The upward longing of my soul doth tell me so
There is a hell, I’m quite as sure; for pray,
If there were not, where would my neighbors go?

If you think that insulting others will win them over ... you are wrong.

I already posted to you that I studied the bible for years and that is why I left it behind.

If I wanted to read it, I would do so. And when you keep on harassing with the attitude that I MUST read the scriptures that you cherry pick as golden gems, I just tune out and read what others post.

But, as this is a forum, you are free to keep on keeping on.

Just know that I don't read the scriptures that you send especially for the intent of my conversion to your creed.
