And the opposite is true for me. concerning Jesus to be quite simple as was,His message
He us the Way the truth and the Light
Salvation is through HIM and Him alone
CONFESS with your mouth and believe. HE died for and became sin for
us
Paid our debt in full as only the Unblemished Lamb could
He rose from the dead conqueiing death
All the rituals,and other dogmas are,extran
I guess that's all that remains of Christianity when you try to separate Jesus from His Church and then impose the notion that all one has to do is say the sinner's prayer and kind of try to be a good person and all is well.

The man who thought the emperor would be pleased with his brazen bull, was surprised when the emperor made him the first victim of his own invention.

Supposedly the emperor was also surprised when he was later put to death in the same brazen bull.

The Brazen Bull (Torture)

The brazen bull is an executionary device first invented in Ancient Greece.

Its inventor, Perillos of Athens, proposed to Phalaris; a tyrant, the need of a more painful way to kill criminals. This was done hoping to disuade the poor population from committing any more crimes.

As the story goes, when Perillos finished the brazen bull, Phalaris asked Perillos to try it out by himself. He then ordered him locked inside the brazen bull and set a fire underneath it. He was very pleased with the results. Being burned alive was a very exciting act to watch.

When a victim is placed inside the brazen bull, he or she is slowly burned to death. This device gradually became more sophisticated until the Greek invented a complex system of tubes in order to make the victim's screams sound like an infuriated ox.

Asking me what purpose is there "now" for a devil implies that there once was a purpose for a devil.
The devil/Satan is a personification of evil/sin/the loss of God. Estrangement from God is a bad thing now as it always has been.
And why do you suppose a god that supposedly "hates" evil would allow a devil to tempt humans to perform wicked deeds?

Nobody is saying the Bible is not God's Holy Word. And how can you take a simple question and decide you are being mocked? My question was/is sincere.

Myth or legend?

Some have labelled the story of the bull as pure invention.

Christians that preach are very "cagey."

You preach and preach at others warning of the perils of hell, but when asked if you believe that YOU will be cast out of the god's "favor" you immediately feign humility in the attitude that only God knows who will go to hell and who will go to heaven.

If that is true ... why are you preaching???

That means my chances of being a favorite of a god are just as GOOD as are yours.

Silly people!!!

Why ... except to feed your own greed ... would you believe your own "god" is real and that the gods and goddesses of others are false?

WHY???

If you dare ask your selves that simple question ... you will have your answer ... immediately.

Who's preaching?

Not I.

I sent the Catechism's teaching on Hell.

I didn't assign anyone to Hell. Not my job.

Why is there a hell and a devil in existence if the all powerful god loves everybody?

If you don't face the stupidity of the words of theologians, you will not expose their lies, and that means that you are "choosing" to carry on ... infested with the same lies.

That would all be nice and fluffy and stuff except for the fact that the Reformation promulgated lies at the expense of the truth and has put millions of souls in jeapordy.
There can not be 43,000 different truths.
However, God does take horrible events such as the Reformation and make good come of it. It was not, imo, what He had in mind when He prayed that His Church be ONE, as He and the Father are ONE.
I don't think Martin Luther came along and convinced God that it was a good thing to SHATTER His Church into 43,000 shards.

**********

Let me remind you that the Catholic church was involved in the first known split, when they and the Orthodox saw things differently. Or perhaps there was a power struggle between some of their 'leaders'.

SO...churches still split for the same reasons, but the CC is just as 'guilty' as any of the others.

Martin Luther was far from the first. I'm sure there were many through the years...they just didn't have newpapers or internet.
