Jews believe the one god loves them.

Christians believe the one god loves them.

Muslims believe the one god loves them.

That greed exists in religious "devotion" is plain to see ... for all who what to see.

I don't concern myself with reward or punishment from a supposed god. From my perspective, it's a waste of time and energy.

If there is a creator and the creator doesn't love me ... that's between the two of us. It's not anybody else's business.

Do you have faith that Jehovah created evil, and that he could switch to the evil side of his nature to teach you some humilty?

If according to theology Jehovah created evil ... he must really be upset at Christians trying to claim that he sent a son to earth to save only Catholics, and later only Catholics and Protestants.

If I was a god that created evil, I probably would burn all the Christians for eternity for creating such a lie in my name ... especially as I had already made it plain that the Jews were my chosen few, and that I am the god-father of ONLY the Jews.

You have made this accusation several times in rhetoric so now...
Do show the stats...lest you be considered you a liar.
Start with these. There's tons more out there.

"Notwithstanding the difficulties that such data comparisons hold, the available information on clergy sexual misconduct shows that the problem is bigger among Protestant clergy. For example, the most cited survey of sexual problems among the Protestant clergy shows that 10 percent have been involved in sexual misconduct and “about two or three percent” are “pedophiles.” With regard to the “pedophile” problem, the figure for the Catholic clergy, drawn from the most authoritative studies, ranges between .2 percent to 1.7 percent. Yet we hear precious little about these comparative statistics."
http://www.catholicleague.org/a-review-essay-...

"One of the most extreme cases of clergy sex abuse in U.S. history involved a Pentecostal minister named Tony Leyva, who molested several hundred boys in the 1980s, Jenkins said. But few Americans have heard of Leyva, he added, while some molesters who are former Catholic priests have become household names. "

"I have to admit I was surprised at a few of my Protestant friends who still wanted to stand in judgment of the Catholic Church even after they learned there was a bigger problem in Protestant Christianity. They are acting like modern day Pharisees pointing out the sin of others while not acknowledging their own.
“The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself,,“O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity—greedy, dishonest, adulterous –or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week, and I pay tithe on my whole income”(Lk 18:11-12).

The Evangelicals were busy confessing the sin of Catholics rather than their own sin. But why do they do it when Jesus spoke against this? The answer is simple; they were using it as a negative recruiting tool to get people out of the Catholic Church and into the Evangelical Churches. In fact one Baptist minister said they wanted to gobble up all the Catholics they could get because of the scandal. I am sure this worked to some degree more or less, but what happens when these people find out there is an even bigger problem in Evangelical Churches."

If God had killed Satan what would all the other angels, and later man, have done? We all have free will to choose. Suffering is a result of this sin, not God's will. This continues we are told until the end when God will end it all. That time soon comes.

The Jews didnt even exist in the beginning. They were founded later after the flood from the twelve sons of Jacob. Their time was only to last until the Messiah as the prophets told us all.

Look up the Reformation. Personally I believe this came from God so they would stop persecutions...to make way for bibles..to stop selling indulgences. GOD wanted all people to have the WORD. Not only be dependent on priests imo. HE died to rent the fabric of the temple that separated us from His father. The church had become an arm of the state. With popes like the Borgias.
Imo. The RCC of today resistance Vatican 2 and John Paul calling for Christian Unity is what came from the Reformation
.also our country founded on freedom to Worship.
I'd ask that we stick to the subject at hand. I've been trying to find evidence of any groups between the time St. John penned Revelation and the protestant reformation that held today;s protestant evangelical beliefs. Many of the protestant posters here insist that the early Church was sola scriptura/sola fide, yet none have ever been able to point to any writing, any evidence, any secular proofs to support this theory....absolutely nothing. Can you help?

Biblically, you've been proven wrong in every area imaginable. I don't know why you throw around verse verse and more verses like there bullets. Your Biblical ignorance is second to none. You really really need to comprehend what the Bible is; how it was given; and when it came to be.
Do you really believe it should be isolated as thousands of separate verses to be thrown at people? What are you going to say to Christ when He tells you, "Where did I command the Apostles to establish a Bible as the authority on my Ministry"?
He started a Church; a visible hierarchy that would stand the test of every tyrant the Devil can throw at them. Hello McFly? 266 Bishops later....Pope Francis.

Seriously?
Jesus said you do not even know him if you keep not his commandments. Of course you wpould know this if you read what the apostles record for us in the books of the Bible. Jesus set the example by reading the OT books every Sabbath. Where do we find the ten commandments?

The Vatican thinks to change times and laws..
www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catech...

Christians follow Jesus' and the apostles who we know by what they wrote in the Bible, without which you do not even know them. Instead you follow doctrines of men.

Mt 15:9 "But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."

Biblically you have none..
You have no foundation from the word of God for any of your conjecture, that you have added to the word of God...
You word to destroy the simplicity of God's word and replace it with a mountain of calisthenics..
The simplicity of receiving Christ is...
Act_16:31 And they said,===> Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved,<=== and thy house.
The Biblical instructions of Jesus for salvation is...
Mar_16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Joh_3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Joh_3:18 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.
Joh_3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
Joh_5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
you do not teach the words of Jesus...
You have no authority to judge if our teachings are biblically based and the words of Jesus.

There is nothing in the Bible about saving Roman Catholics. Just the opposite. The Roman Church we are told is the 'harlot' & 'false prophet' & 'antichrist'. Their roman empire is the 'beast' which the harlot rides.

Instead Jesus came to save all who accept & follow only him - 1st commandment "have no other gods".

Jesus had Christians before Rome ever founded their false Church. The Nazarenes were called Christian at Antioch, and they a=were not Latin or Roman and did not accept any Pontifex Maximus. The Nazarenes worshipped on the 7th day as the Bible says, God's Sabbath, not the Pope's Sun day.

The Bible correctly shows us these Christian Nazarenes would be persecuted by the harlot Roman Church for 1260 years, from 538 to 1798 when Napoleon arrested the Pope and ended the Papal States - the Holy Roman Empire.

Protestants and Catholics are not both saved. God has only one church / people.
