June:
I was raised a Methodist, searched through philosophy, and religions in late teens to mid 20's, heard God's call in 1972, searched for God almost 20 years, found Him in 1990, became born-again, led to be RCC, got zealous, backslid, searched other religions, re-discovered my Catholicism....In short, a road well traveled by trial and error. No shortcuts to heaven for me.
More or less, I had to learn the hard way. And I am glad I did.

Your god has the power to not send souls to hell ... but he takes away that freedom and overrules with his own vicious will.

Your imaginary god is a bully and has no mercy or sense of forgiveness for those who are weakened by the sin that he perpetrated when he chose at first to create Adam and Eve knowing they would be sinners.

You are hooked on stupidity.

June, you seem to be losing it now. anyone can freely read for themselves what Jesus said to the 'faithful' jewish hypocrites who didn't believe what was written of Messiah in the scriptures that they claimed to hold so dearly.
It was Catholics that wrote that story about the Jews being traitors. But the Catholics WERE the traitors against the faithful Jews.

They started a new religion with two words ... Jesus ... and ... salvation.

They were in deed cunning operators.

if mary was sinless, why then was she baptized in the Holy Ghost along with many, many others?lol
why did mary go to the temple and offer up a sin sacrifice if she was sinless.

Mr. Ad Hominem....take it easy....Your biology theory blew up, get over it.

Why did Jesus get baptized, if he was without sin?

You obviously know the answer. So you just answered your own question as well.

Were you truthful back then Robert, or are you truthful now?

In a similar way, the Bible is a very, very long book full of contradictions, which makes it easy to pick and choose which doctrines to follow, and then change, and adapt them to keep pace with the society in which it is practiced....

Don't put all the fault on the "leader" of the pack. The pack mentality of security in numbers is based on the individual's fear and insecurity.

I find it very difficult to believe that a child raised as a Methodist would grow up to join Catholicism ... then become an Atheist, to later join Catholicism once again.

It makes no sense whatsoever.

Usually people go back to the religions of their childhood, not back to the second religion to which they belonged.

You still don`t get it. God says accept it or reject it. Accept you go here...reject it you go here.

No mercy for those who are weakened by sin..most ignorant response yet Grams. That is why Christ sacrificed His life on the cross. That is mercy you idiot.

Keep the ignorance coming. I enjoy reading them.

That does nit mean that it is nit Christian Teaching that she is HIS MOTHER..out of David ..his descendant ..
And she followed Him yo the Cross..literally washed in His blood .
RoSesz:

You are quite right. We should be thankfully worshipping Jesus.

But consider for a moment, Jesus did not leave his family by going out to preach, but in search of His Lost Bride....

And He showed the world to what length He went, to die on the Cross, for His Bride.

This is how much God loves us....

Can we not do the same for Him?

While you are explaining, can you also fill in the blanks on these other questions?
"What is the Church?"
"What are the qualifications of a Christian?"
"Why do you only believe in a portion of what Jesus taught?"
"Why do you only believe in less than six of the original 13 Apostles?"
"Why is there more 'Paul' teachings in the Bible, instead of more from Jesus?"

You took the easy route and became slovenly lazy in the idea that a Jew would do your work for you and waltz you off to bliss in an afterlife.

Pathetic creature!

You see Robert, a short while back, I also believed that there was a God of love that permeated all of creation. Now, I don't place such a title as "love" in connection with the word god. The word "god" now irritates me. And I guess that is for the simple reason, that if this god exists, he/she/it has done a hell of a poor job of taking care of not only the human animal, but all of the other animals that do not (in my opinion) deserve to suffer.
If I was all powerful, and of a humane nature, I would never have allowed suffering to exist in the first place.
Something is very wrong with the whole picture that has been painted by theologians and preachers of so-called truth.
Many people would call me an Atheist, but as of yet, that is not true. I believe there is something that carries on beyond death, but even within my belief, I can't explain if, and where it ends. But I believe that it is invisible to our currant state of being.
I am not at all afraid that I will ultimately become an Atheist, because I don't relate to the idea that belief in a deity is necessary, much less commanded through fear. I reckon we have brains to use in the search for what is our inherent right, and that IS ... comfort in our own beliefs TO search, to question, and to never falter through fear WHILE we search.
If this so-called god is a vengeful maniac, then "he" is not ever, under any circumstances worth my investment of trust.
And if "he" is all divine love, then he has to be in a zombie-like state of inaction, or "he" would do something to change the never-ending suffering ... so "he" is, at any rate, in my opinion, USELESS.
Maybe there never was a god. Maybe we are on our own to rise to a higher state of functioning by caring for each other just as we are. Maybe we are to learn that we are just lowly animals, and not so high and mighty after all.
I never did figure I was better than any of the other animals, so these thoughts are not new to me.
I would appreciate other people's beliefs on this issue..........
lol....USELESS. What a word to use in the case of a man-made god....I like it....

I hate to disagree with you, so I won't. I am in near perfect agreement with you except that I don't equate an "eternal soul" with there necessarily being a god. In that way there rests the responsibility toward a greater degree of leading a moral life for the individual. If not, then the resolution of good and evil, seems to rest outside the human condition. And I don't think that is true.

Also you may be closer to being an atheist than you think....For me that is not an insult, just an observation....

How silly can you get???

Within the Catholic theology Jesus was supposed to be perfect and show others HOW to be perfect.

He was more perfect than John the Baptist who supposedly baptized Jesus.

Ridiculous blather.
