Religion is rather like farts. Our own farts are enjoyable ... while the farts of others stink!

Brain farts = religion.

there ISN'T ONE PERSON ON THIS EARTH WHO WILL BE GOING TO HEAVEN BECAUSE OF THEIR OWN MERITS.
IT WILL BE ON THE MERITS OF JESUS CHRIST.
FAITH IN GOD, AND RELIGION IS 2 DIFFERENT THING.
RELIGIONS ARE MANS IDEA, FAITH IS GOD'S.
Religions make it all about man, faith makes it all about Jesus.
You are doing nothing more then making a fool out of yourself June, when you walk in darkness you see nothing and know nothing.
You just keep on using your favorite scriptures to teach your imaginary "god" what "he" believes.

You are not even close to the first preacher to try to pull off such magical stunts.

In fact the Buddha is often portrayed as a teacher of the gods,[20] and superior to them.

"I'm telling you what GOD wants you to believe."

"But you said knowing the mind of GOD is not possible as God is above human awareness."

"I go by what it says in the Bible."

"But who wrote the Bible."

"Men who were inspired by God."

"But if God is beyond all knowing, how could the men have received messages from the GOD?"

"I don't know, but it happened and it's true."

"Well ... it makes no sense to me."

From the book “God’s Bullies,” by Perry Deanne Young comes the following

You realize, then, that people see God through mirrors—and the reflection is often that fearsome, intolerant beast inside all of us.

You said the Church declares someone a saint...not who is in Heaven.
The Bible says God declares who are saints.
Oh yeah before I forget....sigh
Are you just trying to jerk my chain? What is so hard to understand?
Oh, I get it. It is not that you can't understand but rather, you WILL NOT understand ...
Only SAINTS are in heaven, canonized by the Church or not.
If one is not saintly or holy, one WILL NOT enter heaven (Matt. 5:48: "You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."). This is why the Church exists and will exist until the end of time-to continue Christ's work of redemption of the human race through her sacraments, which confer God's sanctifying grace, by which a soul is gradually transformed and made perfect, that is, holy.
Now, you can continue on your hatred of the catholic Church, and risk your own salvation, or you can humble yourself and accept that the Catholic Church is the only Church that Christ founded.
Your choice ...

Thank you for your kind words..you seem gentle also.
I BELUEVE there are saints in every denomination and some in no denomination..I understand why the Church wants to honor him..He is by far the best Pope I have known in my decades if life.
I knew he was g king to be canonized as soon as he died..him and Mother Theresa.
Thing I s he was most likely a saint the minute He left this earth.
But praying TO HIM .And people do PRAY TO SAINTS ..I or a need h is as a child ...now the Church says it never did ..And that is NOT true
We had feast days.processions to crown Mary...patron saints ...And we prayed TO them..
But as I came to the true faith o f the heart ..I learned it is wrong to pray TO anyone but Jesus..the Fath e r or the Holy Spirit....in other words only pray TO GOD.
http://www.catholic-saints.info/catholic-sain...
THAT link is a prayer TO PETER..THE whole site is full of prayers TO Saints.
If I BELUEVE my neighbor is in heaven ..I might pray to God to bless him..But not TO HIM.
RoseSesz:

I understand your position. And I say for me as a converted Catholic, it is at times for me difficult to "pray" to the saints.

I say "pray", because I consider communicating with saints as more like talking with them. I don't pray to angels, I talk with them.

Consider Jesus talking with Elijah and Moses on the Mt. of Transfiguration. Are we forbidden to do what Jesus did?

I think most of us consider that prayer is a form of worship. So when in heaven, will we not be able to communicate with other saints? Why would we be prevented now with communicating with them?

If Catholicism is in dispute, one would use Catholic sources to first locate what the disputed Catholic teaching IS.
Then, use YOUR source to argue against the teaching.
that's called "informing your argument".
Easy, huh?
well the dispute is simple the church states it is the true church, their is no history that supports that statement, only in Catholicism that lie exists, nowhere else in history or in scripture does the catholic beliefs exist, and considering it's ugly gruesome past, there is no way it vcan be the true church of jesus/god. it's all a man made scam for money an profit, and the big factor is why would a Jew build his church in a country he has never been to and also tried to wipe out his people? they stole just everything people owned in Israel, and a lot of it is hidden inside the walls of Vatican city, you either joined the church or you lost everything you owned to the church including your life, now does that sound like something the true church of god will do?

All preachers preach what the gods WANT us to believe, how we must behave, how we must not behave, and how we will be rewarded, or punished.

Religious preachers are scam-artists. They come in disguises as tellers of truth.

You will never hear such preachers say "I don't know the answers ... I just have questions."

What's your point?
Americas prisons are filled with rapists and murderers and many of them were raised by Christian parents.
You religious ones always favor pointing outward at nasty stuff and pointing at your selves as HOLY-ones.
Silly people NEED religion to puff their egos to grandiose proportions.
June:

I suppose the point is that a person is affected by the society in which they live. And being part of the Commonwealth, you may deny it, but you exhibit its schizophrenic response concerning Islam. Modern Britain more or less denies religion, so that it can contain religion. And you do this as well.

Christians consider themselves as being sinners, and unworthy of God's Gift. No ego involved. What you want to see, is what you see.

Although I have grown to believe that a large part of the Roman Catholic organized religion is more about power and control than spiritual enlightenment, it is difficult and sometimes emotionally disturbing for me to think that everything about organized religion is corrupt. Coupled with the evangelical and fundementalist view of scripture, it would appear that evil has it's hooks firmly implanted in our spiritual development. When I consider the dark side of the "organized" church, I turn to the new testament and remember the ways of Jesus. He was forgiving and his gospel is love. Although I am having my own personal issues with same sex marriage, Jesus calls us not to be judgemental, to love, to forgive, even our enemies. I'm stuck with this human condition and can only try harder.

God made earth Holy with out the pollution of sin

The whole earth reacts to sin. and it effects all inhabitants...

It convulses with earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes,plagues

Volcanic eruptions etc...

Rom 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

Rom 8:23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

who="jethro8" Science has never disproved anything in the Bible and it never will.....jethro: that's not quite true LT,it has proven no great flood took place, the massacre of thousands of new born's by herod never took place, the earth is older than 10,000 yrs. which religion states it is, it's million/billions of years old, dino's and man never lived side by side, except the wooly mammoth, and lacking the technology, we can't prove if anything in the sea was alive the same time man was except the whale, sharks, whale-sharks, anything else would be a guess right now until something is found.... continued.

**********
Jethro...you are reading too many 'modern' history books. People of this century are imagining what went on thousands of years ago.

Archaeologists are turning up new proofs continually. You say that Herod never murdered the babies? And you have PROOF? Funny, your only 'proof' is that you don't have any proof...either way!

Pharoah's chariot wheels have been found in the Red Sea. Abraham's home city of UR was recently uncovered by archaeologists.

Keep your eyes open. It ain't over till it's over...

Evidently the Roman Catholics believe that the redemption of the body takes place when some one dies..

The believe that the dead are in the presence of Jesus

as mediators between Him and themselves..

Question

What profit is it to die and go to be with God

if one has to continually be aware of the ungodliness and sin upon the earth...

That would not be heaven,,,

Heaven is supposed to where

Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

In religion, pride comes before the admittance of "I don't know the answers. I only know what I have been taught to believe by other humans."

Devotees to the cults are warned of such pride, but because they are IN religion they don't perceive that their preaching stems FROM pride.
