<quoted text>I see. I must apologize for what many of my Christian family teaches from the Bible. Much that they teach is erroneous for they are of little understanding in much that they think the Bible says. There is no one burning in hell and hell is our common grave. There is nothing anyone can do in this life,in the short time we are on this earth to have God be so mean and vicious as to deposit their souls in a burning tormenting hell for all eternity simply for not accdepting and believing in Him. That they teach that God would do is yet another scripture that they have misunderstood and taken totally out of context. It is yet another of the many lies that God gets told on Him by the religious community that are of little understanding of much of the scriptures. Again I apologize for them. They mean well though.
You only reflect back to you from the words in the bible that satisfy your own imagination. That is what all people do with the words. And then they fight with others about who has the meaning that came from "GOD" through those who wrote the words.

Silly stuff indeed!

Hell, I've been saying that Catholics are the only folks who do not piss God off for three months now. About time the Pope picked up on my lead.
The Pope did. A new era of openness.

After calling for reform of the world's "cult of money," the Pope listened to my calls (and a few others), and the reform begins within.

The Vatican bank will launch it's own website and publish its annual report.

Please explain hOw that pertains to the inquisitions and the atrosity of It will you?
"OH PLEASE!!! Pagan religions were brutal before Christianity ever came to the fore.
Why do you try to imply that humans have ever been anything BUT selfish power-seekers?"
THAT'S YOUR BULLSHIT NOT MINE JUNE!
I am not Pagan any more than you are...am not "IMLPLYING ANYTHIHG"
YOU ARE!
You are dishonest and reprehensible in your attempt to impose and defame by "LABEL"(incorrect label-Libel).
YOU are the one stating that "humans were anything but selfish power seekers".
And now you try to attribute it all to Pagans. As that is supposed to mean I am to blame.
Grow ta hell up up will ya?
Why don't you go break a mirror or something more relative.
You are grasping at straws to try ti cause pain. You can't hurt me. I am "above" you in that respect.
Your hatred will destroy you....I promise you that is truth.
I didn't attribute all cruelty to Pagans. I just emphasized that before the Christians started their churches, the Pagans were already burning other humans and non-human animals in the flames to appease the supposed gods.

As I can see from the words in your posts to me, you have the same reaction of anger as do the Christians on this forum, and yet you preach about knowing the meaning of love.

We all have hot-buttons and yours is lit up bright red ... so please don't give me that malarkey about early humans being atoned to love and that they came from space and were evolved to a god-like level of behavior.

From my perception, our ancestors were ape-like creators that were probably comparable to other animals in knowing nothing more than basic skills of survival.

My guess is, if circumstances were suitable, with the flash of a weapon, you could be a killer and so could I.

No, I am not talking about an image of Jesus Christ in a cookie.
The Catholic Church exhausts all scientific reasoning BEFORE they officially declare something worthy of belief.
The main 'rule' I guess, is for you to believe in Him...
Sorry Clay, but the CC RESISTS all scientific "reasoning," as you put it.

The CCF has refused modern testing on relics, communion tissue, all except one test on the Shroud.

The test on the shroud came back as most suspected, a 13th century fake, but then your CC tells us "oops, the test sample was an old repair."

Now the CC refuses further testing and you claim they want to "exhaust all scientific reasoning BEFORE they officially declare something worthy of belief."

Sir, that is the definition of delusional.

I asked for a list of things god requires us to do, and you could only "guess."

And if I don't love your imaginary god, then what happens to me? Would you use the description that Mary told the three little girls at the sun miracle?

That's OK. We agree on the other 95% of mankind's religious dogma. It's all imaginary except for yours, right?

OK. I will provide you with a very personal example.
My wife, sister, and two small children were threatened with death by a gang. I was in another state at the time. My wife called me about the situation and said if I returned that they would kill me and them also. I came back to my home immediately. The gang tried to decapitate me with a chain when entering my drive, but I was just a little smarter than that. My bike was messed but I was prime.
I Destroyed 15 bad ass assholes(carrying knives guns and pipes) that night with nothing but two hands and the love for my people.
Did I worry if I was gonna die?---HELL NO!
AND THE COPS HAD THE NERVE TA WANT ME TA PAY FOR THE DAMAGE!
THAT'S LOVE!
So violence against violence is what you refer to as LOVE?

Thanks for helping me make my point.

And the idea that you want me to believe that with your two hands you took on 15 criminals is quite the story. It's not believe-able ... but it's quite the story just the same.

It almost compares to the story of a god destroying the whole civilization with a flood because of evil.

So if YOU were making the laws how would you handle these people and at the same time, align your behavior to an act of LOVE?

I agree.
But how far do we allowed people to go with the "freedom of religion" law?
Should JWs be allowed to deprive their children of live sustaining blood and allow them to die?
Should snake handlers be allowed to indoctrinate their children that handling poisonous snakes is aligned to a god's will?
Where is the fine line?

What "rules" does God require me to obey?

No one has a simple and concise list. How about the 10 Commandments.

Surely all Christians can agree on something "from God" as simple and concise as the 10 Commandments, right?

Did Jesus change the 10 Commandments? Jews seemed to understand them.

Hate or love?
Well ... when you can explain the difference between what people refer to as hate and love, please let me know.

Those who held the bible in one hand and the sword in the other seemed to be sure they knew the meaning of love.

Holy war or Just war to me are conflicting statements, as killing can't be a holy act ... but to those in religion it meant and still means to some that the gods supported the killing.

From Exodus:

"... for I the LORD your God am a jealous God,visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me."

Why does this god get angry at a person's family for 4 generations?

The concept is not only unjust, but absurd.

No, I haven't had any visitors from outer space ... and I also haven't had any visits from a devil or a god.

Even when I was under the spell of religion, I never had any visits from a devil or a god.

Anything is possible, but it hasn't happened to me as of yet.

We had at least 15 other(truckers) witnesses to it all. never mind, you are unapproacable anyway. Why even bother.
UH HUH.

It's plain that you believe YOU are a super-god that came in from outer space. To beat on up on 15 criminals with your bare hands while they had weapons is not an ordinary feat by any stretch of imagination.

The ones that supported holy and just wars "loved" their images of gods ... but they didn't love the humans whose blood they were spilling.
