Thinking is only part of living a good life.
I know you write a lot about religious arrogance. And there is a lot of it around.
I would be a hypocrite if I did not admit to you that I have studied the major religions, and actually found common truths they share.
Yet perhaps you might consider another point of view instead of arrogance, and that is confident hope. It develops on faith. And I am not being specific to Christianity alone.
You studied major religions to untimely land in the Christian religion because the teachings gave you information that a Jew came to earth to save Christians from the wrath of a god's punishment.

And you now are certain you are well VERSED!

Standing tall on the backs of those who suffered....nice one, Jethro. Guess you can't stand tall any other way than to use others to prop you up. I know you're all worked up, getting vicarious thrills about the sexual sins of others, but that's the sickest thing of all. Perverted. Take a cold shower.

Thoughtful points. Thank you for adding some balance from the Christian side.
Religion A Delusion:

Haha. I think you have a great point here. Can't you "feel" the minds of some of the people on here shouting? I sure do.

It makes me wonder why? Probably a lot of it is driven by insecurity, and the opinions/shouting drowns it out, almost like getting intoxicated.

Thank you for your response.

The Catholics compiled all the data in the New Testament. There were no Protestants.

They wrote as Catholics for Catholics.

The word Protestant did not exist until the 16th century.

Sexual abuse happened and probably still occurs in Protestant churches.

Why must you stoop so low as to pretend your flock is guilt-free?

It doesn't make you appear at all honest.

Your SMOOTH words don't fool me.

You adhere as much to your religious cult as do the ones that SHOUT it out.

There's not a question in my mind that you perceive yourself as very holy indeed, and are quite willing to believe that others deserve hell and all it entails.

June VanDerMark:

No. I am certain, that I am not well versed, as my understanding is very lacking. But getting older now, I can now sum up my experiences. And I can focus a bit better on things in general, rather than jump here and there in the "search for everything".

(I know you hate it when I write such things. Haha.)

But I had to explore, so that I could go beyond my own cultural and religious biases.(Even atheism!)

This fellow is another smooth talker. He's so smooth that even though he admitted that they like his lies ... his followers didn't catch on to his con-game.

They don't want to see his lies. They desire to hear what he tells them. He's SMOOTH.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>

I watched a program on Primetime OWN.

The man who calls himself the second coming of Jesus told the person interviewing him (verbatim)... "So you tell the millions of followers I have ...’Dat guy's a liar.’ You know what dey gonna say?...‘I prefer his lies.’"

Here he is in person …

I actually though, jethro8, that you had more intellect, intelligence and reasoning to know the Truth as to why we worship and proclaim Jesus Christ in His One True Catholic Church-----"but I can see that it still continues to escape your anti-catholic mind.... We as Catholics belong and adhere to the teachings of the Catholic Church because it is the "only" Church that teaches the TRUTH in accordance with Sacred Scripture and Tradition not because of the Inappropriate Conduct of some of its members. The Catholic Church teaches that it is wrong to kill, commit adultery, rape, etc. but that doesn't guarantee that a Catholic or a Catholic priest will never kill, rape, commit perversion, or commit sin..... Jesus initiated His One True Church to save sinners of which we all are....The Perverted personal conduct of a small % priests who commit sin does not negate or change the TRUTH OF DOCTRINE that the Catholic Church teaches and has "always" taught for over 2000 years. Protestants also have sexual perverted ministers in their Church which actually (equals or exceeds) those in the Catholic Church. The issue here is TRUTH OF DOCTRINE vs Personal CONDUCT. I don't judge either the Catholic or the Protestant Church based upon the inappropriate conduct of its members. I judge them on the basis of whether they teach the TRUTH based upon the Sacred Scripture and Apostolic Tradition....... That is the reason why there is such a ("BIG BIG DIFFERENCE"! The Catholic Church is the ONLY Church that teaches the FULLNESS of the TRUTH and the FULLNESS of the Faith and that is "precisely" why we, along with the other 1.169 Billionb Catholic around the world continue to worship, adhere to, follow and believe in the TRUE teachings of Jesus Christ and HIS infallible TRUTH which is ONLY proclaimed and taught in Jesus' One True Catholic Church!! Every one of the bible authors were also sinners: Moses was a murderer, David was an adulterer and Paul said "I am the worst of sinners"! This only shows how "ridiculous, confused, mixed up and (dumb-founded) you bible only Protestants are in your ingrained and distorted anti-Catholic thinking.
there is nothing to escape from,because it does not exist,i do stay away from the churches false teachings.did you read my news article about the woman who died in a catholic hospital after 3 days of begging for help because she was miscarrying and they just let her die,why? because it's a catholic country,you can keep your sick institutions.hospitals are suppose to help people not stand there watch them die.

What a lot of arrogant SLOP.
That your own clique will listen to such drivel bespeaks of mindsets that are on the same arrogant PAGE.
If you were born the child of a Muslim, or a Jew ... you would only know Islam or Judaism ... PERIOD ... and you would be just as certain of future bliss in an afterlife as you now believe as a Christian.
I suggest you stick your self with a pin so you can wake up. It seems there IS no other way.
June VanDerMark:

If I were born a Jew, Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, then I would be under those societal norms. True. And if given the opportunity to explore beyond them, depending on circumstance, I would have searched.

I am not a Hindu, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, nor could I predict, how I would have responded, nor the society around me. My life would have been different. But I am, who I am, and not someone else.

But I do not deny other religions, and followers in those religions salvation out of lack of knowledge.

Your thought is mostly aimed at conscience, and its formation.

Hermeneutics Smutics:
There is no peace in the soul of one with pride.
Interesting little piece from a blogger about St. John Cassian:

The Eight Demons of St. John Cassian
My life, along with many others (though I forget this often), has been a continual struggle with sin. I am not alone in this, and there is a kind of comfort in that. I found this out especially when I stumbled upon some writings of St. John Cassian in the Philokalia, arguably the most important spiritual text in the Christian East aside from the Scriptures.

The first vice that Cassian speaks of is control of the stomach,followed by unchastity, avarice, anger, dejection, listlessness, self-esteem, and pride. I think that "self-esteem" would jump out immediately to the modern reader of the above list, but in this case, Cassian seems to be referring to a kind of pride, a seeking out and enjoying of the compliments and flattery of others.

Ignatius was Catholic!
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>>
An important milestone into development of Christian self-consciousness or Christian self-identity will be the emergence of the word "Christianity." This word appears for the first time in the writings of a church thinker of the early 2nd century of our era named Ignatius, who lived in Western Asia Minor, modern day Western Turkey.

Religion, you can't have it both ways. If you say there is no proof there is a God and you can't prove something doesn't exist, then you can't go on and tell me there is no God.
I can't decide whose logic is the more tangled up mess, the fundies or the atheists.
With out the leadership of the HOLY SPIRIT WE CAN SAY AS

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE DID...

Out out brief candle
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more.

It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
