Athanasian Creed
1. Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the catholic faith
June

Although some doubt is cast on Athanasius for writing this creed, I think it is more one of trying to define God, so as to differ this creed from various beliefs going on at the time of the writing.

Whatever the case, it provides points for discourse and understanding for those interested. It was once considered very common, but as I recall it is only in the last century it has been narrowed,(one might say marginalized) due to misunderstanding.

Recently, I have had to rethink my definition on the word "belief", due to its changing nature from the 1500's until and especially in the 20th century....

Choose your poison.... I am not a person that excludes people from heaven, or their concepts of heaven, to the abyss. So you might as well quit telling me that I do such a thing....

I suggest humans don't simply TRY to judge other, but rather that we DO judge others.

I wouldn't live in a world where I was expected to not judge, as that would be no fun at all!

I suggest it gives me the same sense of pleasure to believe that you are a pompous ass ... as it gives you to believe that others will spend eternity in hell.

And you KNOW how much pleasure you derive from the one-up-man-shit of your Catholic belief that you will saved ... while others have a sense of eternal abandonment.

I suggest he did what was expected of him by the pope of the day. He was told to write that only those of the Catholic faith would be saved ... and in order to save his own life ... he obeyed the pope.

Thomas Aquinas was ordered to recant some of HIS beliefs ... and that is exactly what occurred.

Thereafter he went on to become one of the most famous Catholic theologians ... by agreement of the popes who in turn gave the orders of what would be written as dogmas.

OH ... but you forgot to mention the other part of your story!!!

When did you stop believing that others will spend eternity in HELL???

The Catholic religion depends on hell in its dogmas, as do YOU ... you pompous-assed FIBBER!!!

I don't use religion to judge others ... and that shows that people don't need your religion in order to learn how to be judgmental.

One thing you don't understand again is God doesn't care about material things at all and what we do for the poor is more valuable. We feed the poor more so than any other Church by the way. You really hate the Church, this is why you are here. You are very angry at her for some reason. You need to rediscover the Church.

Please ... speak in whispers! Have respect.

The answer is "no."

Do you believe the hell mentioned in the Qur'an is real and the Shay&#7789;&#257;n is waiting to burn your eternal "soul?"

Shaytan is Islam's devil.

All those ancient religions had them at the ready to take care of offenders.

These people had first hand knowledge of the Gospel and they Baptized their children. That is a problem for you because you undid this teaching from the Lord. His will is that you guys bring forth your children to get Baptized and you refuse it. You also work to prevent others from Baptizing infants.
One lie of called sola scripture, caused all of Protestant-land to explode.
~~~

"Protestant-land" YOU HAVE EVIDENTLY, COINED A NEW NAME FOR HEAVEN

I HAVE CONCLUDED THAT YOU ARE SO BLINDED BY THE PRIDE, ARROGANCE AND

LIES, OF YOUR ROMAN CATHOLIC RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION...

THAT YOU WOULD RATHER

BURN IN HELL ETERNALLY....

THAN EVEN CONSIDER THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD FROM THE BIBLE...

From Sinners to Saints: No One is Too Far Gone for God

The Embezzler Who Became a Saint
Visitors to Rome will know St. Callixtus (died 222) as San Callisto, the patron of one of the Eternal City’s most famous catacombs. But it’s not likely that tour guides will say anything about his unsavory past.
Callixtus was a Christian slave whose master decided to open a kind of bank where his fellow Christians could keep their money. The master put Callixtus in charge of the bank. He couldn’t have made a worse choice. Callixtus was so careless in his investment decisions that he lost virtually all the depositors’ money. The rest of the money found its way into Callixtus’ pocket.
Afraid of what his irate master might do to him, Callixtus ran away, but was caught, brought back to Rome and imprisoned. Following an incompetent attempt to recover some of the money he had lost, Callixtus caused a public riot, which got him sentenced to slave labor in the mines of Sardinia. There he would have stayed until he died if the Roman emperor had not, unexpectedly, issued a general amnesty for all Christian prisoners.
When Callixtus turned up in Rome again, Pope St. Victor I took responsibility for him. In the spirit of charity tempered by prudence, the Pope found Callixtus a little house far outside the city walls and gave him a stipend. Victor also took to visiting Callixtus. In a short time, the embezzler and brawler showed signs of genuine repentance—so much so that he was ordained a deacon, then a priest, and was given management of the Christian catacomb we know today as San Callisto. In 217 the clergy of Rome elected Callixtus pope. Five years later, he died a martyr.
Callixtus’ martyrdom and veneration as a saint is something no one who knew the old Callixtus would have predicted. And Callixtus had Pope Victor to thank. Good shepherd that he was, Victor sought out the lost sheep. And Callixtus, moved by Victor’s kindness and patience, and touched by God’s grace, responded and turned his back on his old, sinful life.

Without a devil or hell, there is no fear. Without fear organized religions wouldn't exist.

Mara, the Evil One.

Evil is personified in Mara, the Buddhist Devil, who represents temptation, sin, and death. He is identified with Namuche, one of the wicked demons in Indian mythology
