Religion - A Delusion

There are examples of false prophets in the Old Testament, and this is a pretty broad topic.

I think Jesus condensed this saying, from Deuteronomy 13:1-5, but it was more for the individual.

Following someone who promises pie in the sky in the name of God, rather than following and loving God with all one's being, will lead to a lot of woe individually, and collectively.

Consider all politics. Even well meaning, a lot of grief in the world.

So you are a Catholic following a Jew in the right direction HUH?
According to Jewish theology, if you follow a Jew, you will land in Olam Ha Ba.
That doesn't have that ring of "heaven" somehow ... does it???

The battle of good and evil.
It may be in big numbers, and we so easily see the war in the world, but it is our susceptability(the way of the flesh) to fall into temptation.
"Deliver us from evil." It is something not far away, but begins in the heart. Our Lord's Prayer for us.
We must remember the beam in our own eye. In this way we may remember to be more humble.
**********
I understand that we can be tempted, HB. We need to fight the good fight of faith. Sometimes we fail, but He forgives and cleanses us when we confess to Him.
We are also told to restore others in a spirit of meekness, when we see their faults, knowing that we might also be tempted as they were.

My question is, who were the false prophets?
The false prophets who claimed to speak for God, would include men like Zedekiah and the 400 “prophets” who assured Ahab and Jehoshaphat that “God” would give Israel the victory over Syria’s army (1 Kings 22:5). There were also those prophets who spoke from their own inspiration, claiming that God had spoken through them (Ezekiel 13:2). Hananiah is another example of a false prophet ( Jeremiah 28:1-17) who proclaimed God's plan before the King. His false prophecy led to his death.

So the Muslims will be elated to hear that the Catholics and Protestants have finally seen the light and that all souls from all religions will be welcome in the high realm.

Then why are you people fighting over whose religion is the true one?

Interesting question.
I can only give my own thinking on this.
Since Jesus is God and Man, He is above sainthood.
I'll be darned. I thought being a saint was as good as it gets.

Saint Jesus of the Catholic church has quite the ring to it ... don't ya think?

I think you missed my point. Sorry.
The rather invidous description of Christianity, known as Roman Catholic Church, was not invented until about Henry VIII, or Elizabeth I in England.(As being part of the "Empire", I suspect you have heard of them. Haha) Before that, Christians were known as being part of the Catholic Church.
What are you blathering about?

The first Catholic were always of the Roman Catholic church.

Imagine how terrified humans were to be accused by a pope or an imam of offending a god and knowing that the pope or the imam had the final say in the issue!

There were no higher courts to which people could go for help.

John Calvin ordered the death of a seven-year-old child for slapping his parents, and the crowd honored that wretched crime as the will of a god.

They traveled in packs comparible to rabid dogs, singing the praises of one or another god as they went, and all the while they preached from the "good" books how to be holy.

Imagine how parents felt when a child died and was not baptised in the church when they were told that that child would burn forever in the fires of hell.

How cruel and depraved were those men? How utterly heartless?

The study of the religions of world is the REAL theology, and it is NOT holy. It never was holy, and from my perspective anything based on ignorance and arrogance has no right to use the label of holy.

That is a crime against what should be ... conscience.

I emailed this Dr Day once. She is a defender of the Roman Church and refuses to accept anything e.g. dogma not supported by the Bible. So much for women preachers.

The Pope claims to be 'vicar of christ'.

The Vatican has many men in their service, such as the Knights of Columbus. They do in fact run all the banks. The Rothschilds f.ex are papal knights..

While the Jews do deny Christ so do all other religions. We are looking for the 'beast' of Daniel and Revelation and this is Rome's empire & church.

It is catholic propaganda to claim the Protestants were just as bad. evidenced by the fact that since the end of the holy roman empire there is no more inquisition. The Protestants were often just defending themselves from Rome's empire.

Rome's holy wars do continue only under another guise otherwise we would all know who the enemy is. Since the HRE fell she continues as the world revolution.

Not all, only those who accept the free gift of faith in their creator, Jesus Christ!

There is no fighting. They are free to believe or not. The fighting in the middle east seems to be about empires. Islam is a violent intolerant religion that will exterminate all others when allowed.

The faithful Jews carried on honoring Judaism.

The ex-Jew Catholics did not honor the faithful Jews OR Judaism.

That's WHY the ex-Jew Catholics created a new religion and a new supposed savior that ONLY honored Catholics.

I'm not Catholic and I claim that the Protestants were every bit as brutal as the Catholics.

The Protestants were the first to arrive in America and steal the land from the Native Indians.

The Protestants fought so much among their own denominations, the so-called founding fathers had to create separation of church and state in order that they quit trying to kill each other ... with loving intentions ... of course.

I was just reading a story about some 260,000 Somalians who have died of hunger. Starved to death because of an East African famine. Over half of those who died were children under the age of 5 years old. This is why millionaires like myself will continue to attend the Catholic Church to pray but I will no longer give my money to the church during offerings. I will offer my prayers, only. The Catholic Church should be leading the way to help these children and I never hear any effort being made by the Catholic Church on these dire issues. Why? What good is all of that gold sitting in the Vatican if it cannot help to alleviate the suffering of so many children? Religion is not what you preach; it is what you practice. I heard nothing from the Catholic Church after the earthquake in Haiti, including many other countries where children are innocent sufferers. My money will go directly to those who need it most, the poor children; not the Catholic Church to settle lawsuits for the pedofile priests.
If you ever find a means to send US dollars directly to the poor children,wherever they are,who will have the wherewithal to convert US dollars into their local currency....let me know.....please...
