But very few will ever understand this.....
If they were brainwashed as children, does that still mean that a loving god will punish them for eternity?

Seems so.

Imagine being an innocent child not knowing any better, punished by some psycho god for all eternity!

That doesn't sound like any god worthy of my worship. Pass.

Quote: No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
Its called a "Bible"....the Sacred Infallible Inspired Word of God...
The Bible are only words - thus any "dwelleth in us" is through a thought we have with our mind or consciousness. THus Self makes this determination to believe, and not the Bible.

Why don't you believe Jesus?

Prooftexting (sometimes "proof-texting" or "proof texting") is the practice of using isolated quotations from a document to establish a proposition. Using discrete quotations is generally seen as decontextualised. Critics note that such quotes may not accurately reflect the original intent of the author,[1] and that a document quoted in such a manner may not in fact support the proposition for which it was cited when read as a whole.
Many ministers and teachers have used some version of the following humorous anecdote to demonstrate the dangers of prooftexting: "A man dissatisfied with his life decided to consult the Bible for guidance. Closing his eyes, he flipped the book open and pointed to a spot on the page. Opening his eyes, he read the verse under his finger. It read, "Then Judas went away and hanged himself" (Matthew 27:5b) Closing his eyes again, the man randomly selected another verse. This one read, "Jesus told him,'Go and do likewise.'" (Luke 10:37b)

Its kinda like they use the Holy Scriptures as combination of tarot cards, fortune cookies and a secret treasure map... Zig zagging from verse, chapter and verse as if the Blessed Apostles revealed the faith that way. Anyone on Earth could design a Christianity if they were allowed to interpret the Bible that way. Obviously, thousands have.

Why don't you believe Jesus in the non-canonical?

If one is to acknowledge what you have said as "true", then you also haven't even done what you have stated.

Sounds like the same process Catholicism uses.....
- when utilizing only a portion of Jesus, you do the same thing as non-Catholics....moving from verse to verse to find some sort of coalition between them.

But alas, your point is only applied to those who you object.

Well I just did the same to you, because all denominations do the same.

You aren't much of a historian. The paper trail exists starting 500 years after the death of Socrates and Plato, and consists of only a couple of sources.

Jesus, had the N.T., and the Early Church Fathers within 100 years of his death.

Socrates was never deified. Plato had more potential.

What's the difference between 1) believing and 2) accepting or "receiving" Him?

Why does St. James say:

24 You see now that it is by deeds, and not only by believing, that someone is justified.

I had to snip for space. Besides, everyone knows its 19th century quotes taken-out-of-context. We already told you what Catholic teaching is. I don't know why you dig this stuff up.
It seems like you and Ox are more interested in the thrill of antagonizing us then any real interest in truth. To me, its desperate of you to search old snippets like this. I guess I can see where you're coming from. It can't be easy for career deacons like yourself to get hit with the truth. You must feel like you ran into a brick wall. So you gotta scratch and claw for any 'justification' to keep the protesting going.
In the end, it'll be your words as they stand before God and that's that. I would hope you can reflect on that and start acting like the Christ you say you follow.
Brick wall? Not the Roman Catholic church certainly. A crumbling wall best describes the RCC.

You said, quote, " I would hope you can reflect on that and start acting like the Christ you say you follow." End quote.

Thank you for the tip. By the way, when you leave your confessional and the priest tells you to do 10 hail marys and 5 Our Fathers let me know how Mary helps you act, and act is the operative word, like Jesus Christ.

I see zombies all the time while driving the road, in the airport, and while shopping, they all are on their phones.

It just seems like so many people don't enjoy thinking. Its to much work for them, and they; prefer the responsibility for it to be elsewhere, and prefer doing repetitive tasks instead, with an occasional break to use the phone.

Its impossible to have a conversation with someone that is talking to someone on their computer game, or phone, especially when they talk so loud....

Its my one complaint to the Lord. Lol

Its a world-wide phenomena.(epidemic?)

I TOLD YOU!

{{{{{POTENTIAL}}}}}

Are you really to stupid to comprehend even a one(1) word answer?

Or is it that you just can NOT refute it?

You see, if there weren't any potential there, there could be no universe as you know it now.

Even the Dogon, the Ancient Africans (over 10,000 years ago), and the ancient Egyptians(4200 years ago) understood that simple fact, and taught it, as do our "modern" physicists of today(they just call it "singularity" or "string theory").

Ask a 4th grader to explain it to.

Geeeeze!

Well said. The "ANYONE ON EARTH" you are eluding to has proven to be your popes who interpreted the Bible plus tradition plus pagan beliefs plus palm reading and came up with....you got it! The ROMAN CATHOLIC church.

Again, well said. When you look in the mirror you will find the person you are talking about is 'YOU'.

There ya go. I'm getting the same impression. All their convoluted explanations, going around the block dozens of times in order to justify a particular doctrine or personal interpretation. It's madness to think the faith was ever taught that way. It's unfortunate, but that's what happens when one is more interested in exerting one's will than in submitting to the truth.

Do you notice all the "I" statements?......"I" found a deeper relationship with Jesus when "I" left the God-given authority of the Church and did it MY way." "I" don't believe in organized religion.(Hmm, Jesus did. What, it's not good enough for you?) "I" know "I" am saved because of the warm fuzzies "I" get when "I" pray." "I" don't believe in the Real Presence because "I" don't think that's what Christ meant in John 6." Pride.

All this talk of unity is all well and good, but Blessed John Paul II did not mean unity at the expense of truth.
