Why are you shouting? I'm sure you "personally disagree" with mormonism as well, yet you are probably not spending a lot of time puking up lies about them.
Why are you fixated on the CC?
Have you noticed that this is not a Mormon forum?
Mormons get their share too. Check out the forum http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/latter-da...

For instance, when I was very young, I had no "human" friends or playmates. I had a meadow in the woods where I spent a lot of my time(daily actually). My "friends" were wild animals, and we were a "family". Even buck, doe, and fox would lay down beside me and we played. It was a total trusting atmosphere, with no fear.
Interesting story and intriquing.

We were talking about the Gospel of Thomas, right? Jesus didn't write that. It's been dated 340 AD. The greek fragments are dated to between 130 and 250.
where are you getting this from an apologetic site?

But for those who are taking notes....like I said - "This is still a mystery to me," - "I don't know".

So why do you believe men were accurate after they accumulated those certain texts in the NT?

Sorry, I don't understand your question?
In 325 CE at the Council of Nicea - 300+(approx 318) bishops gathered together to "talk Jesus".

The core canon would be established and 50 editions of this "bible" was created. From this point in time, things started to get real crazy - this dogma was heresy, or that person was a heretic, etc, etc, etc.....

In a nutshell, 300+ men chose the texts you deem are infallible.

You might not be a paid preacher, but from what you post about knowing your self and other such theories, you believe you could lead others to a "spiritual" experience that they could hold of high value.
I don't believe religious theories equate to answers.
They don't!
If you follow other men, you can't ever attain personal experience or knowledge.
They may help point you to that end, but that is all.

I have colorectal cancer since 2006,i did the i.v. chemo and it didn't work i developed another small tumor right in the same area as the first one,but it was in a non-vital area,so it was easily removed,did more chemo,again failure, a tumor showed up right next to my kidney,it could not be removed,unless they take my kidney,so i have a stent in my kidney to help it drain out completely,they managed to kill the tumor using radiation treatments,and now i'm on a chemotherapy pill called xeloda, have been on it for about 2 yrs now and I've been cancer free since.very thankful for modern medicine.

Many cruel-minded theologians knew the benefits of religion to in turn motivate people to kill.
In America killing homosexuals is now against the law ... but in Thomas Jefferson's era ... homosexuals were still being put to death by the "Christian" law.
Although pope Benedict was against the death penalty, the death penalty is still written into the Catholic dogmas as the will of "god."
Religion is not beneficial to humankind. It goes against all the principals of kindness, as it turns people into right-fighting hogs in the want to clear whatever is perceived as blocking their paths to the promises of euphoria in a supposed hereafter.
religion is the number one killer in the world.churches should be closed,people practice their religion at home, and keep their beliefs to themselves and we'll have a better world.

You can repeat it all day long, but in the end, they will only continue to object and refute it, because they want to believe what men have told them.

Its that fear thing. It's hard for them to shake. Shoot - it took June 70 years.

I'm new here. So...who is saying Jesus didn't rise in bodily form and why? What exactly is being defined as "bodily form"?
Hi Sam. Thansk for stopping by and responding.

Uhm....my posts say that I differ from that of the Catholics - and many others, so that would be me.

But thanks for asking.

But before you post some long explanation on what you believe to be true, it probably has already been posted, so you would be redundant. If you want to respond, just condense it with bullets, to make it easier on everyone reading it, which would be a possible way to receive a response - if you were hoping for one.

I take it you believe Jesus rose in bodily form, meaning, his body was physical, and not spiritual. That is what Christianity believes, and based upon a previous post you made to another poster, it appears you are one of its followers.

Cheers!

You can't make this stuff up.
Remember, the Vatican has one of the most problem ridden, secretive banks in the world.
So naturally, they want to tell the rest of us what's wrong with our financial systems.
Many people would call this hypocritical and delusional. To Catholics, it seems to appear normal.
But how?
Francis demanded Wednesday that financial and political leaders reform the global financial system to make it more ethical and concerned for the common good. He said:“Money has to serve, not to rule!”JETHRO:he's so full of it,if he wants money to serve? why doesn't he start passing out some of the billions they got stashed away in their 2 foot thick financial portfolio.funny how he wants others to do good but i noticed how he did not mention the catholic church needs to do more with their money than hoard it.

That would be a sad day. The Catholic Church did a lot to patron the arts. Think of all the music, architecture and art we would not have without the Catholic Church. What would great thinkers like Leonardo da Vinci have done without funding from the Catholic church? I think we would be living in a more primitive world if church had not existed as a gathering place and thinktank. True the church was selective with which thinkers it endorsed, but a great deal of good was funded by the church.

One must be of academics or a "Postulator".
"Research in the Vatican Secret Archives is free of charge and open to qualified scholars conducting scientific studies. All researchers must hold a university degree (five-year course) or an equivalent university diploma. Clergymen must possess a licentiate degree or PhD."

"Postulators working on sainthood causes may gain admission to the unopened archives if they need to research the life of the would-be saint.
Postulators cannot publish or divulge information gathered during these advance viewings of archival material, and for each visit they need permission from the Vatican secretary of state. For the church's saint makers, it's the ultimate background check."

Hell, that's just to get a "card".And that's just the tip of the iceberg .
