It's no wonder that only evil is left for others, when preachers such as Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson grab all the holy stuff for their selves.

why do you insist faith In Jesus and faith in religions are one and the same.
Without first being taught the Christian religion, you would have no awareness of the word Jesus.

YOU WROTE...

we do not know if a god truly exists,no one here has proved it,the pope can not prove it,so where do we find the proof?

THE ANSWER IS SO SIMPLE...

THAT THE INTELLIGENT MAKE IT HARD...

IT IS

Psa_34:8 ---> O taste and see that the LORD is good:<--

blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

HE IS BEST FOUND BY TASTE TEST

Mat_5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

> JESUS... HERE SPEAKS OF SPIRITUAL FOOD FOR THE SOUL..<

Joh_6:35 And Jesus said unto them,

==> I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

And just wait until judgment day, when Jesus' father finds out that most of the world's people didn't become Christian after all.
My guess is, Jesus is going to pay for THAT huge sin of falling short of his father's expectations to convert the whole world to Christianity.
I never could figure out why a Jewish god would want his son to support Catholicism and tell the Jews that they had to become Catholic or burn in hell.
He has to have a few loose screws rattling around in his invisible head somewhere or other.

True. The delusional keep claiming we are the ones who screwed up.

But who made us in the first place?

The concept of "free will" explains nothing. Who "freely" chooses to spend eternity being tortured.

Nobody "freely" chooses such a thing. And their god sees everything in advance anyhow, right?

So their reality is -- god makes us and KNOWS in advance that we will "freely" make the wrong choice. So their little god makes us knowing full well its going to punish most of humanity forever.

Remember, "the way is narrow" and only a "few are chosen." Bull.

This is like an angry little child who burns up most of the ants in his ant farm with a magnifying glass. What a silly notion of god.

Maybe they should find another way to feel special.

Agreed!
The bottom line is: Mary is in Heaven because her Son is Jesus Christ- God made manifest. If anyone of us could spare our own Mothers from death and bring her to Heaven, we would. We can't do this of course, but certainly Jesus Christ can and did!
its tough for anyone to ignore the Marian apparitions in the last 150 yrs, as Mary attempts to bring people to her Son. What a great asset we have in our spiritual Mother Mary. "Woman, behold your son, son behold your Mother" wasn't just a saying directed towards John, it was directed towards all of us and is proven by her repeated intercession - especially in the 20th century.
Mary is our Mother. Of course she knows each of us and loves us and prays for us. Much better than our earthly mothers do. What a comfort to know this! I don't see why anyone would reject her!

I get it. What a game they've got going.
Daddy threatens us with Hell.
His son saves us.
Sounds like a Mafia protection racket.
**********
'Daddy' does not threaten us with hell. He tells us that it is there, and shows us how to avoid it.
If you choose to play in the street after daddy tells you not to...you can't blame daddy when a car hits you.

Daddy made us knowing in advance that we will play in the street and get hurt.

Unless of course, your god can't see the future.

Is your god able to see the future?

If a god created a heaven for good people ... the god also created a hell for bad people.

Judgment day is not about CHOICE. It's about God and Jesus lining up all the souls, and judging who goes to heaven and who goes to hell.

So much for all that free will crap!

The Bible is writings of prophets and those directly inspired by God each time. The apostles were all breathed upon by God / Jesus. Moses saw God on Mt Sinai. Daniel, Ezekiel, all the rest - directly received inspiration by God to write what we have in the books of the Bible.
There are no contradictions. You are mistaken.
Maybe you are just blinded by the pagan religion, evolution. There is no evidence for evolution. It has been debunked all over the internet. Bible proven true each time.
Bible right again!
if what you say is true,first you must prove a god exists,can you do that with undeniable proof? you say there is no evidence of evolution? your wrong my friend,read Darwin's book,look beyond what you are told to believe,open your eyes to the real world,his first clue of evolution came on his trip to the Galapagos islands,he noticed the same species of bird on the islands, identical in every way except in one, they evolved different beaks in order to survive, because if they all ate the same food,they would perish,so to survive, these identical birds found other sources of nutrition and as time past their beaks changed to make it easier for them to extract the food from the rocks on which it grew.and the best way to prove evolution is the fact it's going on right now as i type,as you know if you read or watch the news, antibiotics are becoming increasingly useless against viruses that use to be easily eradicated by these antibiotics,what is happening is that these viruses are evolving (superbugs) and creating a defense against the antibiotics rendering them useless. Evolution is not a theory it is a fact.another point that came to light was when the aids virus appeared,it was an unknown virus (not exactly true),no way to stop it and there still isn't,you can slow it down,but you can not kill it completely yet.in a search for an answer i believe it was a biologist came across a journal written by a doctor who went to Africa in 1930 to help people with a disease,as it turns out,after reading and sharing the information with other biologists,this doctor was talking about the aids virus in it's infant form,they saw the exact same symptoms that we are seeing today but the difference now is it developed a defense against the drugs that were used at the time.and it is still evolving,what we are using today will become useless tomorrow.science has no choice but to use stem cells to help find cures for these super-bugs,other wise bible prophecy will not come true,there will be no second coming and one final great battle to decide the fate of man kind,we are doing it already,by over use of antibiotics and other medicines making them useless,our extinction will come at the hands of a small living micro-bug.not unless an asteroid gets us first.

See, Jesus said it, we didn't. It would be wise if you didnt attempt to undo Our Lords will.
So hoiw did iut work out?

2000 years later, most humans have been exposed to this story, yet fewer than 10% actually believe it enough to practice the "true" way as you claim.

So who screwed up?

The CC maybe? Or Jesus? Or God?

Why does your god keep making humans who he knows in advance will reject your absurd story and thus will suffer for eternity (according to the BS).

Do you make things for the purpose of destroying them? If not, why would your god?

200o years and it isn't getting any better, only worse.

So who screwed with this "save mankind" thing?

Everyone is equal in this regard - we all get to choose to believe what we want to.

A man can dictate to another on what to believe, but it is the choice of an individual that gets to make the final decision.

No "God" or religion is involved.

Let's say that salvation is attainable. Okay, then how?

A: By a person acting upon a thought from his/her mind and then promoting that thought into an action in either good or bad.
- If good - "heaven" is dreamed up - because others said so
- If bad - "hell" is envisioned - because others said so

A person chooses to be kind, loving, caring, or helpful.

Only the ones with "demons" within themselves, require religion to comfort them.

"To know yourself is to know the kingdom of God"

- faults can overcame, but one must first address that they exist. This is done through honesty. Honesty leads to correcting these inner faults/"demons", which - when fixed or eliminated, will lead to better qualities within and through outward action.

No religion required.

Rom 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and

in thy heart:

that is, the word of faith,

which we preach;

Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth

the Lord Jesus, and

shalt believe in thine heart

that God hath raised him from the dead,

thou shalt be saved.

Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and

with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Rom 10:11 For the scripture saith,

Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

>NATIONALITY DOES NOT MATTER<

Rom 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

When only a few are chosen ... it means devout believers have to fight to be in the lead. The weak will perish from lack of arrogance.

God is very very picky. Jerry Falwell knew it, and Pat Robertson knows it.

The more you talk the god up by brown-nosing ... the better the chances of making the grade with god ... who locks most of humanity out as evil ingrates.

That's how he shows his love for us.
