Tales of fiery destruction raining from the skies are not, though, restricted to the Bible. Hempsall told the Times that "at least 20 ancient myths record devastation of the type and on the scale of the asteroidÂ’s impact" - including the Ancient Greek myth of how Phaeton, son of Helios, lost control of his dad's chariot and plunged into the River Eridanus.

Big difference.
Theologians of all religions wrote many lies and claimed that the lies were based on truth.
You believe lots of stuff written by men. How do you know it's not lies?

Clay says..........I can see it just fine. There is no doubt the Jews in the first century saw Christians as 'Protestants' so to speak.
Michael says.......Don't forget, the man you worship according to scriptures ONLY! was a jew for his entire earthly life, loving and practing his jewish faith, then became a traitor to his life long jewish belief leaving behind many of those who also believed in their jewish faith as he did. Dumping your life long loving belief system is not the work of any all loving God.
......something is wrong Clay!

**********

Michael...THINK! Jesus was born a JEWISH NATIONAL, not a religionist. His work was to CORRECT the Jews who had gone astray from God's principles; those who were self-righteous, NOT God loving, or people loving.

He was not a traitor to His Father. He spoke what His Father spoke, and did what He saw His Father do. He did not 'dump a life long faith'.

I've known a lot of saints in my lifetime, who have lived by the principles that Jesus taught. They weren't perfect...but they were decent, law-abiding, and respectable people. My father would not have taken a dime that belonged to someone else. He opened his doors to needy people. My mother was 'saintly'; both of them were forever telling us to 'do unto others as you would have them do unto you.' They taught us that (not being rich) the most important thing that we owned was our 'name', and we should never bring shame to it.

Most of our neighbors were also kind and good. I am sorry for those of you who never knew such love. Where did they learn this?
They read their Bible; they went to church, and they respected their parents, who taught them REAL Christianity.

Religion is bunk you say?
I think most religions point people in the right direction. But there can only be one fullness of truth. I see no reason to believe that the Catholic Church is not who they say they are.
I was raised Catholic, but unlike many, I tried to move away from Catholicism. I desperately wanted what the born agains were preaching. I wanted to believe that the religion I grew up in was bogus so I could justify my new approach to life.
But that truth thing can be a real pain in the ass.
.
There can be no "justification" of today's beliefs, because they are all redactions and obfuscations of generations after generations of corrupt and greedy "priests" of already corrupted religions.

That gave them a message that they had a free pass to heaven even if they committed horrible crimes against other humans on earth.
Imagine putting homosexuals to death as god-offenders because it was written in a book of supposed truth.
Their crimes against other humans continue as though the crimes are justified by a god.
Religion is horrible stuff!!!

God didn't 'handpick' me. He gives YOU the same choice that He gives to me. I WAS very fortunate to have parents who made the right choice.

Muslims teach their children to hate, and even train them to behead 'the infidels'. A bunch of Jews in California were loudly celebrating after the Supreme Court gave them a 'hands up' on their deviate sexual practices recently. Most 'religions' have some terrible practices (burning their children as offerings to their 'god').

It has nothing to do with one being more worthy than another. You can CHOOSE to follow good, or you can follow meanness and pride.
One is life, the other is death. Your choice.

Salvation is not obtained by good works, but by living faith in Christ and His finished work. 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." The Roman Catholic church teaches people that their salvation depends primarily on themselves, and that it is of works. It puts people under a system of endless rules and obligations. Those under law are not under grace.(Galatians 5:4; Romans 6:14). Unlike the early Christians John wrote to, a Roman Catholic cannot "know" that he "has" eternal life.(1 John 5:12,13).
I Timothy 2:5-6, 5 "For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time." To believe we need priests, saints, Mary or anyone to get to God except Jesus Christ is heresy. It means to disbelieve God's Word and create our own religious system. It is to invite spiritual deception. It takes away from the centrality of Jesus Christ.
God said that beside him there is no other Savior. Isaiah 43:11, "I, I am the LORD, and besides me there is no savior." This certainly tells us Mary is not a Savior, in spite of what popes and priests have taught by word and example for centuries! No wonder many Muslims think that Christians believe that Mary is part of the Trinity. Millions of Roman Catholics treat her as a Savior and as a goddess.(The same spirit that led the Hebrew women into the idolatrous worship of the "Queen of Heaven" is responsible for the Mariology of today's Roman Catholics. Jeremiah 44:17-19)
Mary had other children after Jesus according to the Scriptures (yet only Jesus had a virgin birth). "Is this not the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?" (Matthew 13:55-56) See also Matthew 12:46-49; Mark 3:31-34; Mark 6:3; Luke 8:19-21; John 7:5; 1 Corinthians 9:5, Jude 1. The prime example was James, the brother of Jesus, became the leader of the church in Jerusalem!(Acts 15:13; compare Acts 12:2 - a different James)
The Bible nowhere teaches that Mary was sinless , as it does concerning Jesus. On the contrary, the Bible says that "All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)
God forbids the bowing down to graven images and pictures in the Ten Commandments!(Exodus 20:4). The Roman Catholic church has tried to change this commandment, but it remains in the Bible for all to read. This is idolatry. This idolatry has brought spiritual blindness upon multitudes.
The Mass taught by the Roman Catholic church is idolatry and blasphemy. To worship something, like a cracker, which is not God is idolatry. To call something which is not God to be God is blasphemy.
Baptism does not make you a Christian. The disciples were first called Christians in Antioch (Acts 11:26). There is no Biblical evidence the disciples were baptized. You need to be a disciple of Jesus before you have Biblical right to call yourself a Christian. Why did Paul say that Christ did not send him to baptize, but to preach the gospel?(1 Corinthians 1:17).
No church on earth can be rightly called our mother. Galatians 4:26, "But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother." Rome was prophesied by John in the Book of Revelation chapter 17, and is described as "The Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth". Revelation 17:9, "This calls for a mind with wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman is seated;". Rome has seven hills!
It appears you were being made uncomfortable in our discussion of giants, who they were, and have opted to discontinue it....

Mind telling me why?????

Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
