It never happened for all the other religious groups that also believed saviors were coming to rescue them and destroy those who were "wicked."

From my perspective you shouldn't be rewarded for believing that other humans are wicked and evil and that you are holy and saved.

Maybe you deserve time-out to try to figure out how to be less selfish.

LOL...The Catholic Church has never made that claim, nor have any secular or religious scholars of any weight. The church has always claimed and very historically documented that the Apostles appointed men and they then appointed others handing down the faith. Thus, the Catholic church can be traced directly to the Apostles. Those who were appointed and held positions in the church and their successors were documented by the Historian Eusabias who traveled to all the known churches and recorded them and they have been recorded since. One of the main criteria for determining which books of the bible were spurrious letters was looking to those men whom had helf fast to the faith. Those who had so called secret knwoledge were known as gnostics. Irenaus argument was quite brilliant and simple. Show us where you come from. If they could not be traced to the Apostles they were preaching a false gospel and not part of the Universal(Catholic) church.

Maybe if you refer to the word synagogue rather than church, you will better understand that had Jesus lived, he would have been a faithful rabbi.
Maybe if your assumptions carried any weight, we would have a discussion, but alas.

Amen.

If there is a creator and humans are allowed to take their arrogance with them to the hereafter ... joy will once again be missing, as they will take with them all the mental debris they were taught by theologians, and they will fight about who had it right on earth and who has it right in the new realm.

Maybe the creator will wash all thought out of their souls and spirit and they will meld as one into the creator ... who, by the way,... created good and evil.

Do you believe that in the afterlife you will be with Jesus the Jew in Olam Ha Ba ... or that you will be with Jesus the Catholic in Christian heaven?

It might pay to question these issues, as you might not want to confuse Jesus with a sermon of how Jesus must behave to please you.

sarcasm intended.

Perhaps you should watch the video entitled "The Reformation". It describes the people of God who left a corrupt non-Biblical legalistic institution called the Roman Catholic Church. It has been available for many, many years. Apparently you missed it. Try YouTube.
You said, quote, "People absolutely will not leave their careers and admit they were wrong." End quote.
This Sunday get in your car and drive down the streets of your home town. You will find thousands upon thousands of people who have admitted they were wrong and joined Protestant churches. And by the way, the same could be said for you.
Jesus said that the gates of hell would never overcome His Church. Is this not in your Bible? Is this just one more thing from Our Lord that you get to toss out?

You can hardly wait to be blessed by Jesus the Jew for your self-indulgence in Catholic dogmas.

Heaven exists in your imagination. THAT is a fact. But your imagination doesn't own anything. It simply plays with its own illusions planted there by your favorite theologians.

Apparently the one and only god in the sky sends conflicting messages to people on earth.

Christians maintain that a god spoke to them and told them that they were his favorites.

Yet the Jews and the Muslims all claim that the same god told them they were the favorites.

Now, either the god is a trouble-maker ... or theologians have been lying to all the people.

I tend to believe that the theologians are the ones causing all the trouble and that no creator ever did exist to send any messages to humans on earth.

Because they are not the same God. The Muslim god says to cut off the heads of those you don't like.

The Christian God declares: "Do unto others as you would have done unto you". AND:

"Love your enemies."

--- Dust, is that so; now please tell why the Roman Catholic Church is in Rome and not in Jerusalem where JESUS CHRIST started HIS CHURCH with the Apostles; PETER, MATT, MARK, LUKE AND JOHN???

If people ask questions of the dogmas it doesn't take long to see lies everywhere.

I asked the question why a decent god would create innocent animals that in turn had to survive by using fangs, claws, sharp teeth and venom, and there was no answer.

To want cruelty to flourish in the god's earthly kingdom, the god had to be cruel.

And I didn't want to worship a cruel god. With good reason it made no sense to me.

Allow me to explain a comment I sometimes make. When I use the phrase ""'the so called Jews""", understand that I mean the Kenites that have infiltrated the tribe of Judah and are calling themselves Jews . The true Jews are from the tribe of Judah with Benjamin numbered with them. But there are a sinister group of people that have infiltrated the tribe of Judah and are calling themselves Jewish when they are not (REVELATION 2:9 AND 3:9). God calls what they do this a blasphemy. This infiltration happened when Judah came out of captivity. All those returning from captivity were not all from the tribe of Judah. If you guys had studied the link I posted some time ago from the 2nd chapter of Ezra, you would have been able to see how this infiltration happened. The descendants of those Babylonian infiltrators have been giving the true Judahites/\JEW'S a bad name and have been causing trouble for true Judah.
Beware the INTERNATIONAL Jew for they are a powerful and wicked group that has infected the true tribe of Judah. A word to the wise is sufficient.
Very interesting, however, what about Gen 4:1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.

You are again cherry picking scriptures and justifying the behavior of Christians that killed supposed heretics and witches as evil offenders of "god."

Why would a god send messages to only Christians that they would be saved, and not to all other people of the world?

If you use your brain to think outside of what the theologians planted in there, you will see the lies.

The most interesting issue occurs in that devout believers that put complete faith in their own cults, are eager to see the lies in other religious cults.

Meanwhile they just absolutely refuse to admit that lies could be located in their own dwellings.

Case in point! Choose the words that support the right-fighter's belief, and then claim it is based on absolute truth.

It's the name of the game.

My guess is, those crafty theologians knew how to start wars and get the people going in the RIGHT direction that would in turn motivate them to kill others.

A 'works' gospel may be controversial to you but it's a plain old false gospel to me, since Salvation is a gift.
