REAL Christians do not teach/believe such tommyrot. John 3:16 For God so LOVED THE WORLD that He gave His only begotten Son,(so) that WHOSOEVER believes in Him shall be saved.
He does not turn anyone away, regardless of their color or their sin, if they wish to come to Him.

Christians should NOT be teaching that a faithful Jew would support Christianity and be unfaithful to Judaism.

THAT is tommyrot.

You lie each time you make such foolish statements. You know it ... yet you just keep on lying.

Such is your pride in what you preach.

Even when I was under the spell of religion, I believed that the god loved all creation and none would be lost in the "end."

If I had believed that my group of worshippers were the only ones allowed to enjoy bliss in an afterlife ... I would not have had any respect whatsoever for the god ... much less have worshipped him/her/it.

The theology is totally obnoxious and so divisive and self-serving as to be BEYOND belief.

It's ironic that when they offer their religious beliefs to others they believe they are offering others LOVE ... when the draft they are laying on the table is the idea that they know the only narrow path to bliss in an afterlife.
They are totally arrogant ... but they don't see it ... and what's more ... they don't WANT to see it.

They are blind as well as your self...

You claim to have been exposed to the truth before you turned against God...

They have been raised up in their infidelity...

To claim that a Jew would support Christianity as the one and only truth, is comparable to claiming that a Muslim would support Christianity as the one and only truth.

Picture that if you will ... and it will bring your own beliefs into perspective.

How silly was and is the idea that a Jewish god would send his son to earth to save only Christians???

If he sent his son to earth to do any correcting, it would be to correct wayward Jews in learning how to be faithful Jews ... PERIOD.

Christians would have to find their own god to worship ... rather than trying to manipulate the mind of the one god and his son to play such a Christian game of nonsense.

Religion is NOT good.

The best thing for them is that their god is imaginary.

Otherwise, god could see inside their minds, see the hatred and send them to Hell.

I don't want them to be punished for being a product of their environment.

I'm sure the fact that Christians commit disproportionately more crime is due to their wacko upbringing. Otherwise, I think most people want to be good humans and not be hateful and vengeful.

But isn't this why God was boiled for our sins!

If there just happens to be a god that cottons to you ... he would have to be of your same greedy nature in order to relate to you.

How much love do you believe will flow forth from the fountain of greed?

My mother was a Lutheran, but she never taught me that I would be saved and others would burn in hell.

I'm thankful that her words were always "Just try to do your best."

I am thankful that I are not a Catholic!!!!!
(CNN)-– American atheists welcomed Pope Francis’ comments that God redeems nonbelievers, saying that the new pontiff's historic outreach is helping to topple longstanding barriers.
“The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone,” the pope told worshipers at morning Mass on Wednesday.“‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone!”
Atheist: One who disbelieves or denies the existence of God or gods.
The Word of God says: He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Since god does not care what phony group you belong to,you are still one of his children,and your welcome in heaven,even if you don't believe. poor franny, gonna get hammered for this.

It is good that people of The Book -- the Abrahamic religions; Christian, Muslim, and Jew -- are all guided by their loving God to get along in peace, respect, and fellowship.

Seeing how otherwise normal people have been and continue to be so willing to kill each other is truly heartwarming.

It makes me want to be religious.

The only question is which of the loving and kind Abrahamic religions is the right one?

Should I base my choice on body count, or perhaps what I was taught as a child?

That's the ticket! Now you're catching on. Historically, all Christians were Catholic until the reformation.
Here, this should help:
http://www.catholicscomehome.org/who-started -...
But do invest in a good history book as well.........JETHRO:this is a lie, the only christains that were catholics came from rome,the home of the pagan/christian church.if all christians were catholics,why did they keep feeding them to the lions in the arena,or for target pratice? why did they forcefully drag them away and beat the church ibto them? thousands of christians killed because they did not want to follow the church,including it aleged leader of "the church" jesus,he was cruxified by the same church we're expected to believe was of his creation,lmao,the church/herod ordered the killing of male babies to stop his coming,(which is not really true),people had to be starved,whipped,tortured,burne d at the stake,and just out right killed for no reason,all this sanctioned by god and his church...knowing all this how can anyone make such a rediculous statement that all christians are catholics,need the hip boots when regina slings the sheep dip around.
I know people gave you hearts and flowers because of your vulgarity toward and lies about Catholics. Bigots always applaud that kind of behavior.

Historically, prior to the protest-ation of the Christian faith, all Christians were Catholic. In your abject ignorance, you are mistaking the Roman Empire for the Catholic Church. They are not the same. Now, I'm giving you a break by blaming it on your ignorance, so do show the proper gratitude. And then go take a nap; you don't know what you're talking about, as usual. Stop looking for attention like a child.

Michael says......Interesting that catholics claim their religious faith and love of God is the MOST important entity in their lives, yet today less than 1 in 4, 25% of american catholics attend mandatory sunday mass, and fewer than 1% thats right 1%! of roman catholics attend daily mass that is offered in every city in america..........and I thought catholics religious belief, and faith in God were Job 1! Its obvious most catholics are not truthful of what they say.
Catholic HIPOCRICY!
this is true they can get up early,go to mass,then drive to work. no excuse not to follow the pagan/christian rules.

OK. Thanks for your explanation of interpretation. I see you at least THINK.
I don't need a "ritual" or prescribed set of tenets or rules to be one with the ALL, I always was and always will be in that state of position. All else is religousity.
Black Thunder 42:

Merely "sensing" the eternal, is like being in a large darkened room.

Religion gives one structure and direction. Most people on this thread are motivated, but without religious direction, the point becomes aimless, and wondering.

We all think we are headed in the right direction. But it takes obedience and discipline to get where one is headed.

As a child my mother would on occasion suggest that I say my prayers ... but she never tried to manipulate for what I should pray. She left that decision up to me.

I observed how my parents treated others in the community with kindness, and hoped that some it would rub off on me.

St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church
Picayune, Mississippi
Q. Is masturbation a mortal sin? If it is, why?
Masturbation is the deliberate stimulation of the sex organ in order to derive sexual pleasure. As such, it is an act of recreation rather than re-creation and is ordered toward self rather than toward God.
it should be encouraged,maybe less children or nuns would be molested/groped by priests,popes and bishops.
