Brown-noser ... "I'm so in love with you Jesus, I hope you know."

Jesus ... "Why do you keep slobbering?"

B.N.... "Sorry, but I'm so in love with you."

Jesus ... "WHY?"

B.N.... "HUH???"

Jesus ... "You heard me, I asked you why you keep trying to convince me that you are in love with me."

B.N.... "Well, I'm supposed to love you, as you are the only way to my salvation."

Jesus ... "Do you think for even a moment you fooled me?"

B.N.... "UH ... ER ... DUH ... COUGH ... WHEEZ ... CHOKE.......... What do you want me to say???"

Jesus ... "If I existed I would tell you that with human-created words men lied to you and you were suckered in because of your ravenous lust to believe you were special."

Not good work of a god/man

It's that promise of salvation that keep them plugged in to self-ingratiating stupidity.

They've over-dosed on so many of their favorite scriptures, they just keep regurgitating and chewing the same old cud.

Protestants may differ on various doctrinal issues, however, the only thing that really matters is what unites ALL Protestants. And that is ..........
1. John 3:16, ""For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
2. Romans 10:9-10, 9 "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved."
3. Ephesians 2:8-9, 8 "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast."
<quoted text>
I do my best to ignore your stupidity but it is time you were informed of your ignorance.
42,000? You change your number as much as you change your theology. You are a pathetic heartless wimpy so-called Christian. You went to the Roman church because you are incapable of thinking on your own. You must be told what and how to think.
United? In perhaps one doctrine but it is the only doctrine that has eternal value and actually matters. Try reading and listening. God gave you two ears to listen and one mouth, although in your case huge, to speak. Protestant agree on the following, whether there are 42,000 or 420,000. AGREEMENT on what really matters.
1. John 3:16, ""For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
2. Romans 10:9-10, 9 "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved."

That Adam and Eve myth started long before Christianity, as did so many of the other myths such as Noah and his boat (with no motor) paddling around the world.

Really very silly stuff for cunning theologians to feed to gullible people.

Floods

After Noah, the best-known hero of the flood sagas is the Babylonian hero Gilgamesh, whose account is enshrined in the Epic of Gilgamesh. In ancient Sumer, the man chosen for survival was Ziusudra (meaning “he saw life”). The god Enki warned him of the gods’ decision to destroy mankind in a flood. His tale is found in the Eridu Genesis that dates back to the seventeenth century B.C.: Ziusudra is instructed to build a large boat. The flood persists for seven days, at the end of which, after making sacrifices to the gods, Ziusudra is rewarded with the gift of eternal life.

Weather and the Bible

More typical is the following verse from Psalm 107:25, 29:“For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof…. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.”

But the Lord’s wrath can also express itself through the weather, and it does so frequently:


Psalm 78:47:“He destroyed … their sycamore trees with frost….”

Psalm 18:12-14:“… He shot out lightening and discomfited them.”

1 Kings 8:35-36 [2 Chronicles 6:26-27]:“When heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; if they pray…and turn from their sin, when thou afflictest them: Then hear thou … and give rain…”

Psalm 78:47-48:“He destroyed their vines with hail….He gave up their cattle also to the hail….”

If you can imagine such stupidity ... picture the idea that while the Catholics were killing the Jews left and right as Christ-killers ... Jesus the supposed Christ of whom they preached, was busy forgiving Catholic sins in Catholic confessionals.

And at the same time, the same Catholics were praying to the one and only god who according to the theology of the Jews, favored ONLY Jews.

Religion is BUNK!

who="hojo"
Confrinting's audacity to actually deny recorded historical and scriptural verses from the New Testament and especially from Paul's writings, with regard to the CHURCH, is just planin inconceivable and incomprehensible......... His defiant and willfully beligerent "rejection" of what is clearly written with regard to the TRUTH of the authoritative, visible and heirarchical CHURCH, initiated and formed by Jesus Christ, with the Bishop, as an overseer (Acts 20:17,28, is just plain rebelliousness and defiance of the TRUTH .... In Paul's writings, the word bishop is used in conjunction with priests, deacons, and elders. The necessity in the organization of and within the Churches was to provide for an "order" charged with superintendent and pastorial service. The Bishop is exhorted to exercise oversight (I Peter 5:2. His qualifications are expressely stated (1 Tim 3:1-7 and Titus 1:7-9....Phil 1:1 references Christs Church at Philippi with the Bishop as overseer. This is "exactly why" in I Tim 3:15 Paul tells us that "THE CHURCH" is the pillar, pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH". Paul doesn't say The bible is the foundation and pillar of the truth---He says THE CHURCH!!! I don't read anywhere in the Sacred Scripture where Jesus or the Apostles handed out bibles, or read out of the bible to the Christians in the Churches of Antioch, Phillippi, Corinth, Thessalonica, Colossus, Ephesus, or anywhere else as!!!!!
**********
The Catholic scorn for the Bible is scary.
KM
We, as Catholics, do not scorn the bible, KayMarie! And the fact is that "you KNOW tha we don't"!...... Catholics do not believe in Sola Ecclesia or bible only!..... We believe in Sola Verbum Dei (the Word of God alone)....... This comes directly from Christ and the Apostles through both the written and the oral tradition (2 Thess 2:15) which has been entrusted to the Church that Jesus builds upon the rock of Peter (Matthew 16:13-21 --the same Church that Paul refers to in I Timothy 3:15 when he calls THE CHURCH (not the bible alone) as the pillar,pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH......... The infallable wisdom of God is made known through His Church (Eph 3:9-10......... Catholics have the "greatest love" for the Bible as the Word of God, but it is not the only authority for Christians......... It can't be because it cannot interpret itself!!........ The Bible directs us to an authority "outside of itself" to understand what it correctly, actually and truthfully means......... We want to ensure that it properly interpreted and not abused with "false, contradicting, conflicting and heretical interpretations that continue to divide, splinter, and separate the body of Christ as it has done since the Reformation, now with over 42,000 inconsistent, contradicting (bible only) Protestant (self-editorializing) interpretations.

The Catholics in the Vatican were not nearly the first soothsayers.

Observe the crafts of these ancient soothsayers.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>

From the book “Weather Lore,” Reader’s Digest, Published 2007, comes the following…

Etruscan Soothsayers

The Etuscans, whose civilization flourished in northern Italy around 9000 B.C., practiced a form of divination known as haruspicy. To make their predictions, the soothsayers—called haruspices (diviners)—would examine the entrails of animals. They used the weather in their prophesying: It is thought that they could foretell disaster or good fortune by measuring changes in wind direction, claps of thunder, or bolts of lightening.

Of course NOT. Catholics compiled the bible to use as a battering ram against others, and to brag about their own salvation through belief in a Jew.

Nothing can compare with tooting one's own horn. I wrote the following this morning to suit the mood.

God loves me, can't you see
I'm the best that there can be
With a cross and a wafer I deserve a throne
I know I'm loved by God alone
The Devil has no place to go
In my realm I say it's so
So off to heaven it is for me
I've become a saint you see
Some might say that I am vain
That I've become a nagging pain
But I have faith it's plain to see
I brown-nose God so he'll love me
AT THIS PLACE IN TIME I SEE,
HEAVEN IS NOT THE PLACE FOR THEE,
YOUR JOY IS IN THE DEVILS REALM,
TO POKE FUN AT GOD'S OWN.
GOD WILL GRANT YOU YOUR ONE DESIRE,
AND LAND YOU IN THE LAKE OF FIRE.
GOD DOES NOT WANT THIS TO BE,
HE SENT HIS SON TO DIE FOR THEE.
THE CHOICE IS UP TO THEE,
WILL IT BE HEAVEN,
OR HELL FOR ALL ETERNITY.

Drought Legends

Legends about droughts—and ways of ending them—have inevitably arisen among people who have seen their crops wither and die under perpetually cloudless skies. The Zuni Indians, for instance, attributed droughts to the malevolence of a monster called Cloud Eater. He stood as tall as a mountain peak and had an insatiable appetite for clouds, leaving none in the sky to produce rain. The Zunis would hunt him far and wide to stop his depredations so that they would have rain, but no one knew where to find him.

Not TOO bad! But still ... I don't believe your message that you are special substance for a heaven and I will be evil fodder for a hell.

Nice try though.
