If someone is so rapt up in their own salvation, then they can be self-centered, and selfish. And it is at times at least a beginning on a spiritual path.
I believe that lusting for eternal bliss is a dead end that results in nothing but greed.

The Hubble Constant, is pretty well fixed with WMAP, but the rate of expansion of empty space has not been established.
The scientific community has made it fairly clear, that empty space expands faster than the speed of light, thus physical observations on measuring the age of the universe are very, very, wrong.
If Einstein was correct, it is all illusion.

Theories are not about truth, they are about seeking truth.

Religion is theory.

This heresy about the person of Christ was initiated by Nestorius, bishop of Constantinople, who denied Mary the title of Theotokos (Greek: "God-bearer" or, less literally, "Mother of God"). Nestorius claimed that she only bore Christ’s human nature in her womb, and proposed the alternative title Christotokos ("Christ-bearer" or "Mother of Christ").

Orthodox Catholic theologians recognized that Nestorius’s theory would fracture Christ into two separate persons (one human and one divine, joined in a sort of loose unity), only one of whom was in her womb.

The Church reacted in 431 with the Council of Ephesus, defining that Mary can be properly referred to as the Mother of God, not in the sense that she is older than God or the source of God, but in the sense that the person she carried in her womb was, in fact, God incarnate ("in the flesh").

No, that's delusional.

Hojo - "Wrong!! it is you that only believes a portion of what Jesus teaches!"
- No I don't. If you say that I do, please post all of the teachings that I accept by Jesus.
Hojo: "I have confronted you about it more than once and you, as usual, you "ignore the words of Jesus Christ HIMSELF"
- No you haven't. All you have done is rant and rave how Jesus only taught what is in the NT - gospels ONLY ATTRIBUTED to individuals - whereas there is nothing by 'Jesus Christ HIMSELF".
You are lining a sheltered repetitive life. No wonder you won't believe in all of Jesus - you are trapped by men.
I understand that dismay. It makes you angry at almost everyone. I sympathize with you for your disenchantment.
No worries - astonishment is right around the corner - waiting for you to acknowledge it.
If I may use June as only example - she would be an example of how religion has caused someone to live a sheltered life for 70 years. And in the end - realize it was all :just in her mind"....as it is with everyone.
Breaking out in honesty is quite hard to do with so-called "Christians" - and you are no different.
Self.
I "broke out" (as you call it) after 35 years of being "mislead" by half-truth bible only Protestant Christianity, coming to the FULLNESS of the TRUTH and the FULLNESS of the FAITH in Jesus Christ, manifested in and through HIS historically and biblically PROVEN--One True Apostolic Catholic Church.... It is unfortunate, for you, that you New Age have become spiritually "blinded" to the Truth have have become a "victim of deceit" shackled in bondage from the Protestant Reformation in which heretics, hypocrites, bigots, false preachers,and deceivers of the TRUE GOSPEL of Jesus Christ, have "come and gone" for over 2000 years----YET---the One True Apostolic Catholic Church, established, founded and initiated by Jesus Christ HIMSELF----LIVES ON!!!---and will CONTINUE TO LIVE ON and to grow in the TRUE faith and Salvation of Christ until Our Lord returns for the 2nd time...... God Our Father continues to open His arms of forgiveness, reconciliation, and to the TRUE of His Salvation in Jesus Christ---- for you New Age, just as He did to the defiant and rebellious Prodigal Son in Luke 15:11 when he eventually "came to his senses"!!

LTM said that Mary gave birth only the the flesh of Jesus. How can you separate what is the flesh of Jesus with what is his divinity? This was my original question to LTM. By her logic, the Divine Jesus, our Lord and Savior did not suffer on the cross, only his flesh did. You see where I'm coming from? Don't know where LTM is coming from, the Nestorius belief that Jesus' flesh can be separate from His divinity was settled centuries ago. That some people still come up with it is beyond common sense and understanding. I do understand that someone would want to lower Mary's status by saying that she only gave birth to Jesus' flesh, but you cannot, no matter how much you try, separate His flesh from His Divinity, it leaves too many questions unanswered, just like the simple one I asked.
Don't be mad bro. Jesus loves us all.
**********
Pedro, Mary gave birth to Jesus. He was WHOLE, not a part person. But mothers nor fathers create the spirit/soul of their children. In fact, God calls them 'MY children'.
Mary didn't 'make' God; she carried Him while He was being clothed with flesh. You were a living spirit before you were planted in your mothers body...as we all were.
KayMarie
Ah, but we are not talking about Jesus' soul, we are talking about Jesus being the third person of the Holy Trinity. John 1:14 "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us". If Jesus is God the Son, how can you separate his flesh (the word) from Jesus being God?

Mary gave birth to God the Son. Yes or NO? Now if you and LTM say that she only gave birth to his flesh, well, the Bible clearly states that the "word" became flesh.

Debate what!!!! There is "nothing to debate", "nothing to discuss", and "nothing to deliberate"!! The TRUTH has, is and will continue to remain (as it has for over 2000 years) in the TRUE Faith and Salvation in Jesus Christ, manifested, confirmed and authenticated in and through His One (and only one) TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church.
There is "only one" Truth---not 42,000 relative (opinionated, editorialized contradicting truths!..... This is (exactly why --THERE IS NOTHING TO DEBATE!!!

I see. Your changing posts to recreate a lie or untrue effect from the words is what you call truth huh?

If you had any credible evidence for argument you would have no need to perpetrate such libel and slanderous acts.

All the world has observed your ONE TRULY APOSTATE RELIGIOUS SOCIETY,
Oh--you mean the world has observed (Jesus Christs) ONE TRUE APOSTOLIC CATHOLIC CHURCH that Our Lord gave to His apostles, disciples and TRUE followers over 2000 years ago. The same Church that continues to grow each and every year by over 1.5%(now to over 1.168 Billion Christians) in the TRUE FAITH and Salvation of Jesus Christ! The same one TRUE CHURCH that proclaims the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, each day at Daily Mass, in the Gospels, in the Eucharist (the true body and blood of Jesus HIMSELF, in the 7 Sacraments and in the 24 hours Adoration Prayer Chapel. Yes---without a doubt--that is the one TRUE CHURCH that you are referring to!

Have the Attitude of Christ

1Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? 2Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose.

3Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. 4Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

5You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.

6Though he was God,a

he did not think of equality with God

as something to cling to.

7Instead, he gave up his divine privilegesb;

he took the humble position of a slavec

and was born as a human being.

When he appeared in human form,d

8he humbled himself in obedience to God

and died a criminal’s death on a cross.

See that you all follow the bishop, even as Jesus Christ does the Father, and the presbytery as you would the apostles; and reverence the deacons, as being the institution of God.

Wherever the bishop shall appear, there let the multitude [of the people] also be; even as, wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church. It is not lawful without the bishop either to baptize or to celebrate a love-feast; but whatsoever he shall approve of, that is also pleasing to God, so that everything that is done may be secure and valid.

NABre: Jesus’ church means the community that he will gather and that, like a building, will have Peter as its solid foundation. That function of Peter consists in his being witness to Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of the living God.

That's about the size of it, isn't it?

How many do you think would actually start looking at their church's history and beyond all that quagmire of rhetoric to even find any semblance of "truth"?
