Aren't you supposed to pray that others will be helped?
Listen up! Fellow Canuckanoid!

Those are called imprecatory prayers!

REPENT!

God's wrath is coming down on the heads of the repentless!

AMEN!

when Jesus says upon this rock i'll build my church,where do you see that he was referring to the catholic church? and when he was talking to peter they were not even in Italy at the time,and again why would a Jew build a church of christian/pagan beliefs? and in a foreign country he's never been to? and wouldn't the true church be the first church ever built?......... Jesus, the aleged founder of Christianity, was the poorest of the poor.Roman Catholicism, which claims to be His church, is the richest of the rich, the wealthiest institution on earth. How come, that such an institution, ruling in the name of this same itinerant preacher, whose want was such that he had not even a pillow upon which to rest his head, is now so top-heavy with riches that she can rival - indeed, that she can put to shame - the combined might of the most redoubtable financial trusts, of the most potent industrial super-giants, and of the most prosperous global corporation of the world?
How many times has that been mistranslated?

The word church didn't exist.

The concept of church as they know it today didn't exist, for several hundred more years.

Jesus also suggested that men become eunuchs for the sake of Heaven. Jesus also said to follow him, we should give away all our possessions.

The first church fathers took this seriously. What happened to tradition?

Naaaaaaaaaaa. It's easier to keep everything intact, read into the Bible what we want, and just condemn all others.

There are almost no true Christians left anymore.

<quoted text>I poked around your website,no different than any other religious site,they speak highly of their religion and leave out the dark side,the massacres by mormons the most familiar The Mountain Meadows massacre,it involved a wagon train,it was an unprovoked attack,but i can't blame the mormons totally,they were seriously looked down upon because of their beliefs and the taking of more than one wife.(that's nuts)but still i don't believe the story of jesus/god visiting a new york farmer and telling him to start a church,but then since the catholic church was a failure,maybe he did try and give it another shot at man creating a church he can be proud of. who knows in theory anything is possible. big questionis,where are those gold tablets??
Where are the gold tablets? They are not here. Why did God take them away? Well, look at other churches who have relics... I think that often times people give more reverence to relics than to God himself, whether it be a shroud, finger of a saint, or a piece of the cross of Christ. They distract us from God.

Because people don't believe what she believes. She came on this forum but didn't have to to share with the group she doesn't believe in God. So now when someone doesn't agree with her she plays the "I'm being judged" and "I'm the victim" card. She'll stay on here because she has no one to talk to during the day. It is truly a sad story.
Thanks for your reply. But, I believe her anger goes deeper than someone not agreeing with her on this forum. I'm no head shrink but miss June's rants show that there must have been some starting point to her disbelief of a divine power. She didn't just wake up one morning and decide that there is "NO GOD". Someone or something caused that reaction in her. I just want to know why she's so angry at God. Maybe we need to talk to her during the day. Maybe that is what we are being called to do right now. Perhaps we won't change her mind but at least we will fulfill what we are being called to do.

Just sayin.......

Oh and June, why you so angry Bro?

You sound too normal and non-combative to be a Christian here.

This board is for the angry, uncertain Christians whose inner needs are not met by a loving Jesus.

I keep trying to impress on these Christians that if they were born as Muslims, they would be praying to Allah.
Maybe they will allow it to by-pass their Christian indoctrination, but it will only occur when they are ready and willing to open their minds to new ways of perceiving.
That is why so many Muslims are being put to death by their own country men because they have become followers of Jesus.
You are completely out of touch with what reality really is.
Third world countries sent more missionaries to Canada and the USA then we send to their countries.
In 3rd world countries people are being put to death and imprisoned for their faith in God. Yet despite the cost they count it a pleasure to die for their faith in God.
Because they know that death is not the end, absent from the body is present with the Lord.
You forget the disciples of Jesus traveled to Asia Minor, and other Eastern Countries.
Before Christianity . came to the west, you ignorant person.

You seem to believe that because you demand a god to love ONLY your certain group, your demand will reap the desired results.
If there is one god, and that god favors Muslims YOU are HOOPED!

If Islam were truth I would convert! There is nothing stopping me from doing so.

Muslims on the otherhand most often live in countries where conversion is not possible. When they come to the west many do leave their dark age religion.

1. The rock was Peter's profession that Jesus is the Christ, not Peter himself. If it were Peter, he fell quickly didn't he, since Jesus rebukes him with "Get behind me Satan."
2. At the Council of Jerusalem in Acts 15, Peter was subordinate to James.
3. Paul rebuked Peter for hypocrisy with regards to Gentile Believers.
4. No solid evidence that Peter ever even went to Rome - Paul addressed lots of people in his letter to the Romans, yet skipped an Apostle?
5. The methodology for "choosing" the RCC is illogical because it is sel-contradictory. One must, from the Bible, decide that the RCC is the one true church and then immediately suffer that reasoning capability to the Magisterium and the Pope.
6. Requiring celibacy violates what Paul taught.
7. The argument from age fails by Biblical example, where quite often the younger was given priority over the older.
The biggest problem with the RCC is that they add to Christ's requirements for salvation, and do so in His name.
Peter is mentioned 168 times in the Bible. More than all other Apostles combined.
Jesus gave Peter the keys.
Peter is always mentioned first. The Book of acts reveals this authority.

In Acts 15, you teach that Peter was subordinate to James? Interesting.

If the Catholic Church is not the one started by Jesus Christ, then who is?

Celibacy is a Catholic rule; a Discipline.
Priest are celibate because Jesus was celibate.

Please show where Jesus Christ commanded a Bible be compiled to dictate His Ministry? He didn't. That's why the Apostles took 30-50 yrs to even write anything. And that's why Christianity had no NT until the 5th century.
So much for 'Bible Alone'... it was never taught or heard of until the Books became published in 1452. Then, a hundred yrs later, people decided to direct their own Christian teachings.
Now look at the mess!

So you think you are "going to hell", because you are angry and not laughing?

You posts says one thing, but you aren't.

a. Are you angry? Yes or no.
b. You imply that you are no laughing - and then further your position with "going to hell". Do you think you are 'going to hell'?

....OR.....was your response all in jest, has no meaning, but you seemed to want to make a point?

Please clarify.

But the Muslims kicked your boy's butts out of town at the end of the Crusades.

Why?

No one put more faith in Jesus than did the last Crusaders. They marched into the desert under the banner of the cross, with little water.

They were rewarded by being slaughtered.

And yet John is teh "beloved disciple". John was with Christ at the crucifixion...Peter was not.

If "keys" were given to any man(which they weren't) you'd think it was John.

Lets see... should we try Ox's criteria for salvation based on his private interpretation of the Bible?
-Deny that Jesus Christ is God.
-insult His Church that Apparently got His Ministry all screwed up.
-trash His Mother by saying she's just a vessel and if she didn't say yes to the Angel, someone else would have!
(If I was Christ, I wouldn't take to kindly to that.)
Now all I have to do is an alter call in one of those tent revival meetings then I'm saved eh?
No interpretation:
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Show me where that says one thing about Salvation depends on who your mommie was...

Plus you do not believe the Word of God:

But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

And you shamefully claim you are a Christian!!!!!
