Don't worry so much. Your efforts are duly noted. I can see you trying very hard.
But trying very hard may not be most prudent in all cases. It actually can be quite repulsive. And that is why you have great difficulty connecting with others....
I know where you are now in your thinking. Your concern is centered in purpose and vanity....Vanity of vanities, all is vanity cries the philosopher. While at the same time you seek purpose....
Not that these are mutually exclusive, but consider my question.... Is it better to be humble and contrite before the Lord, or be well studied in scripture? Consider the question, as if you were going before the Judge of All....
If someone tells you something that sounds intelligent to most people, and you want to repeat it to me...I am willing to listen...

Considering you stayed within religion for 70 yrs, and only left four yrs ago, you reallty are no different.
I'm wondering why it took you so long for you to make your leap.
As I explained to you before ... it wasn't a leap, it was a gradual realization that if I believed others didn't know truth, I should also admit that there was no way I could know truth.

It's all a guessing "game" and my guess is as right or as wrong as is the guess of those in or not in religion.

No I'm not, you are. God's word is also what was communicated orally. You deny that. You say God's word is only what a few of the 12 Apostles managed to document in writing.
Btw, do you have a bible verse where Christ teaches that some of His Apostles shall document his ministry for people like you and Confrint, to interpret??
DO you have any, let alone ONE verse that speaks of a pope.

love to read it.lol

what's even more fascinating is the human brain when connected to so-called 'science' that it delves into theories it can't physically test. it comes up with the most far-fetched religions of them all, including 'survival of the fittest' where one humanist/socialist leader emerges and commands that others who don't fit his mold are exterminated by the millions! it's truly astounding that this religious cycle continues throughout history even dispite the many warnings which precedes it!
Scientists base their concepts on theory. You base yours on bragging that you know truth.

Big difference.

Theology is the study of all religions, and you fail that test, because your will to discredit other religions as false and credit only your own as truth is all concerned with favoritism and nothing but.

Then you can continue your bible only secular humanism and political correctness teachings in your Protestant Churches, promoting abortion, gay marriage, embroyonic stem cell research, women preachers, euthenasia,homosexual ministers and God only knows "whats next" depending on which way the "liberal political wind" happens to blow........ Give it enough time and all Protestants will eventually move to the states in which the Catholic Church is the ONLY faith that is teaching the TRUTH!!!
The opposite appears to be happening. Catholics risk their lives to live with Protestants.

I wonder why?

You need to take your CRS pills on a regular basis...

You should not argue with yourself....its a no win situation!!!

You first say: the incarnate Son of God.

Then you deny that He is!!!: Jesus is God invested, embodied in flesh...

Why did you not tell me if you believe the teaching of both the Catholics and SBC that Christ is the incarnate Son of God...is there a yellow streak on your body that is not clearly visible...yet????

The Closet

A woman takes a lover home during the day while her husband is at work. Her 9-year old son comes home unexpectedly and he sees them so he hides in the bedroom closet to watch.

The woman's husband also comes home. She puts her lover in the closet, not realizing that the little boy is in there already.

The little boy says,'Dark in here.'

The man says,'Yes, it is.'

Boy:'I have a baseball.'

Man:'That's nice.'

Boy:'Want to buy it?'

Man:'No, thanks.'

Boy:'My Dad's outside.'

Man:'OK, how much?'

Boy:'$250.'

In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the lover are in the closet together.

Boy:'Dark in here.'

Man:'Yes, it is.'

Boy:'I have a baseball glove.'

The lover, remembering the last time, asks the boy, How much?'

Boy:'$750.'

Man:'Sold.'

A few days later, the Dad says to the boy,'Grab your glove, let's go outside and have a game of catch.'

The boy says,'I can't, I sold my baseball and my glove.'

The Dad asks,'How much did you sell them for?'

Boy:'$1,000.'

The Dad says,'It’s terrible to over charge your friends like that! That is way more than those two things cost. I'm taking you to church, to confession.'

They go to the church and the Dad makes the little boy sit in the confessional booth and closes the door.

The boy says,'Dark in here.'

The priest says,'Don't start that shit again; you're in my closet now.'

"...one can be good without a god..."
one could possibly be a good human to other humans without God, but what good could they possibly be to their Creator when they neglect and disrespect Him???
"and it repented God that He made man upon the earth" - God, prior to flooding all humanity accept for one family who didn't forget about their Creator
"as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the end" Jesus

**********
..."be good without a god"? LOL

A human being can do SOME good things because GOD (not god) put His Spirit into mankind...He breathed life into man and man became a living soul...therefore man has some of God in himself, and is capable of doing good things.

But Adam yielded his 'will' to Satan's lie ('you shall be as gods'). Therefore man's 'will' is colored to do evil.(Natural men STILL WANT TO BE SUPREME.)

How sad that a living soul would choose to defy his maker and do evil things! SO ungrateful.

Simply put, the more man chooses/obeys God, the more GOOD that he accomplishes.

who="jethro8"we have free will? so we don't have to follow the book of rules alleged to be the words of a god on how we are suppose to live and pray to him? and nothing bad will happen to us if we do this? if we freely choose not to believe what is written? if heaven exists we will still be allowed to go there? like I posted a few minutes ago, I keep hearing from religious people say god has a plan for us, if that is true how can we have free will? if our lives are already mapped out for us by some great plan by a god?

Did that Jewish pope mean that you would go to heaven, or to Olam Ha Ba where the faithful Jews reside???

Rumor has it that before you invest too much faith in something useless, it's very important to "know" the details.

The Muslims agree with you. It's really silly to believe that humans could be good without fighting over who the one god in the sky loves and who he will burn in which hell.

Stick a fork in it. I'm not lying when I clearly say 'forgive me if I represented your views wrong, Preston'
Besides, a 'lying accusation' from you means nothing, as you're not interested in truth to begin with.
Don't blame Catholics because of the enormous challenge it is to keep track of the Biblical understandings of all you guys.
If God and Mary combined DNA to bring forth Christ in the flesh, then Mary had to be pure and without sin. FULL of Grace.

Then, if Mary was not 'fully human', Christ was not fully human...and you have no hope.

Within the theological mish-mash, is that why he will take away a wish of humans to go to heaven and override their free will with his own will to in turn send them to hell for not believing in him???

According to many Jews, the real messiah hasn't come yet as the conditions haven't been right.

Many Jews believe the messiah will come for the first time, and the Christians believe the messiah will come for the second time.

Apparently the god is a real jokester, as he likes to confuse devout believers by giving them totally different information.

Muslim child dies and awakens to his fate in the afterlife.

The one god is waiting to judge him, but isn't certain how to do it, because the one god is expected to judge Jews, Muslims and Christians all at the same time.

Muslim child ... "Hello Allah ... am I in paradise."

GOD ... I'm not sure, I have to check with KayMarie on earth to find out the real truth."
