June VanDerMark:<quoted text>
Through the eons of time before the Catholics came up with the Jesus' story, there were many other religions that also preached of savior sons of gods coming back to earth to rescue them.
I have faith in my own ability to know that I should avoid hurting others ... and if that is not enough, then so be it. I can't do better than my best.
They never came to rescue anybody in those religions, and my guess is, there will be no Jesus (a Jew) to rescue you.
Why are so afraid of your self and your supposed sin? If you are a decent person, none of that fear should be allowed to reside in your brain. It's plain silly that you infect yourself with such nonsense.
Propositionally, or practically speaking, the "Second Coming" is more a non-Catholic Christian's ideal, which has gained popularity in our time. To me, it has got to many people chasing their own ideas.
It would be a difficult subject for the Catholic Christian to make a concise exegesis on.
But I am very aware of the doubts of a Second Coming, especially amongst non-believers.
