The Romans and the Herodians killed anyone who they thought was a threat.
Everyone in or not in religion who was perceived as a threat to those in power were imprisoned, tortured and often put to death.

Religion didn't and does not change human nature for the better. It simply gave humans an excuse to be cruel by claiming that a god ordained the brutality.

Which comments lead you to belive we scorn the bible?
I have question . I have Saud before that I believe the Catholic Church started as those devoted to God and His Son but became so entrenched with the secular that their popes and hierarchy were nothing like the apostles.

I have cited the BIRGUA pope and his mistresses and children and other excesses.
The Church which went along with the Inquisition.

Etc

Ok now someone gave me a mire modern link and let me say I have nothing to say on these people's belief ..It's theirs fine.

But they seem to see one of your popes as an anti pope.
http://www.mostholyfamilymonastery.com/Natura...

So if you all say the succesaors to St Peter cane from God.how can this be.

I think some are and were closer to Peter than others.

That the Church at tines strayed way off the Church of the Apostles.
That your mire blessed Pope has acknowkedges this. But you all keep worshipping your church as if it is God.

The people if Jerusalem felt this way about the TEMPLE..IMO

JESUS US where our focus should be no matter what we call ourselves.

Any man run institution is fallibie especially religious ones..any denomination ..Imo

As believers we should be united in JESUS. ALONE

Are you going to accept that Catholic theologians are YOUR parents.

Why pretend that you are nice to those who reside in other religions, when in the next sentence you will call them liars and claim that the one and only truth belongs to YOU???

WHY???

Yes, I was raised on lies. Lies such as "once saved always saved".
You see no evidence that any church can claim to the the true Church Jesus built?
Well that doesn't mean there is no evidence actually existing that there is one.
Christ likened His Church to a city on a hill, a light in the darkness, things which are visible and concrete.
He said nobody lights a candle and then puts a basket over it.
Are you saying that Christ established His Church and then promptly hid it from the world?
christ is the leader of his church,there fore he would be found in his church most of the time,but have yoy ever seen jesus sitting in the papal chair of his church? and it would be a perfect church,not the b.s. we have out there now,doing nothing but coming up with ways to make money,all the killings over the centuries proves they care only about one thing,putting fear into people to join their church,in order to make money.

Hojo, confrinting and others posting here have the answers.
They're just not good at articulating such profoundness.
Once they learn who they really are, they will tell you one thing.
"He was boiled for our sins."
Preachers of religion are all blathering braggarts.

I suggest that your Spaghetti Monster is not real even though YOU count on it for sustenance.

And by the way ... the picture of that monster has turned me off spaghetti for life ... just so you are aware of the damage you have done.

However since I know that if you read the Bible from beginning to end you would never see that there were 6 temptations of Christ by Satan so I guess I'll reveal the appendix that goes in-depth and shows that there were 6 temptations.

I seriously doubt though that you have the Spiritual fortitude to be able to handle the deeper things that many of you merely gloss over that are revealed in the scriptures. And by the way..........YOU'RE WELCOME.
You said you would show me Scripture that proved your word..you did not because you can't...it ain't there stupid...

I just watched a program about how Lance Armstrong used all his might to keep his lies of using drugs hidden for so many years. He intimidated others, called THEM liars and did everything in his power to keep his image pristine.

But, the lies finally caught up to him in the end.

Once people try to hide one lie, often more and more lies become necessary to hide the first lie.

Religion, being based on fantasy, yet claiming to KNOW truth, was a gigantic lie from it's very beginning.

Your constant scolding of those who accept the authenticity of the Bible.
Plus your insistence that the Catholic precepts are more important than the Bible.
KayMarie
Let's try to avoid generalizing. Specifically, where have you been scolded for your acceptance of the bible's authenticity? Which precepts do we claim are more important than the bible?

Our rejection of the unbiblical doctrine of sola scriptura does not mean we have a low opinion of it. I would suggest the idea that anyone who picks up a bible (what we call Sacred Scripture) has the authority to privately judge it's meaning makes a mockery of scripture.

<quoted text>In other words the 116th Appendix that demonstrates that Christ was tempted not 3 times but 6 TIMES was way too advanced for you to comprehend. I knew I should not be here trying to feed yo the meat of Gods word when you still require milk.
Aren't you embarrassed to be so Biblically illiterate and call yourself a teacher of Gods word? Satan must be laughing hilariously at you.
You said you would show be Scripture that proved me wrong...you can babble all you want...until you do, I will no longer respond...you are an idiot....
