According to theological nonsense, the creator created a realm where all animals had to suffer simply because humans fell from the creator's "grace."
Of all the stupidity humans believe, that theology has to about take the cake.

Wacky theology
That is what makes Jesus a traitor to Judaism. He lead the people AWAY from Judaism into Christianity, and by so doing insinuated that Judaism was a vile and sinister religion.
Every time you post your Christians anti-Semitism, you AGAIN insult the Jews that stayed faithful to Judaism.
And you are certain that for committing such horror against the Jews ... you will be rewarded.
If people are rewarded for such lies, maybe there really is a god that chooses favorites to follow his sinister plots.

Perhaps the Jewish hierarchy stole Judaism from the Jewish people, and led them astray....?

Sounds like most politicians.(smile)

Well I suggest that when they are chewing on each other and blood is gushing out of their bodies and they are making horrible sounds ... they are in deed suffering.

If YOU think they are praying to a benevolent father ... then so be it.

TYPOLOGY AND THE NEW ISRAEL
According to the typological method, God’s promises to Abraham and his descendents were fulfilled through
Christ and His Church. One Orthodox scholar has written:“In Christ, then, the covenant with Israel was fulfilled, transformed, and transcended. After the coming of the Messiah—the Incarnation of God the Son—only those who are ‘built into Christ’ are counted among the people of God. In Christ, the old Israel is superseded by the Christian Church, the new Israel, the body of
Christ; the old covenant is completed in the new covenant in and through Jesus Christ”(George Cronk, The Message of the Bible; St. Vladimir Seminary
Press; 1982, p. 80).

I think we agree that people must born=anew, in Christ, to be a member of His church.

many writings of the early Church are in original form. The letters of Ignatius of Antioch were composed by his hand and preserved to this day in Rome.
www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ignatius_of_Antioch
Very informative piece from this article (thanks);

He is also responsible for the first known use of the Greek word katholikos (&#954;&#945;&#952 ;&#959;&#955;&#953 ;&#954;&#972;&#962 ;), meaning "universal", "complete" and "whole" to describe the church, writing:

"Wherever the bishop appears, there let the people be; as wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church. It is not lawful to baptize or give communion without the consent of the bishop. On the other hand, whatever has his approval is pleasing to God. Thus, whatever is done will be safe and valid." — Letter to the Smyrnaeans 8, J.R. Willis translation.

It is from the word katholikos ("according to the whole") that the word catholic comes. When Ignatius wrote the Letter to the Smyrnaeans in about the year 107 and used the word catholic, he used it as if it were a word already in use to describe the Church. This has led many scholars to conclude that the appellation Catholic Church with its ecclesial connotation may have been in use as early as the last quarter of the 1st century.

On the Eucharist, he wrote in his letter to the Smyrnaeans:

Take note of those who hold heterodox opinions on the grace of Jesus Christ which has come to us, and see how contrary their opinions are to the mind of God ... They abstain from the Eucharist and from prayer because they do not confess that the Eucharist is the flesh of our Savior Jesus Christ, flesh which suffered for our sins and which that Father, in his goodness, raised up again. They who deny the gift of God are perishing in their disputes.— Letter to the Smyrnaeans 6:2–7:1

To be honest, I do not know....

For the most part it seems to me, that an animal goes into shock when it is in eminent death by its prey. The question of suffering is deeper than just pain. And it is hard to know to what degree an animal suffers(at least for me)....

So, I suggest you go sing it to yourself as you picture your self in heaven and picture the majority of others in hell.

That ought to thrill you NO END!

To believe you suffer and other animals might not suffer bespeaks of your insensitivity.

I've watched animals crying in pain.

You are quite the character.

Yet you are the one who believes that homosexuals deserve hell for being evil.

You are the one who is certain that YOU deserve heaven and even Catholics deserve hell.

If you are trying to draw people TO your religion, I suggest you will have to count on fear of hell as your only hope.

I remember when I first came on the forum how Christians claimed that homosexuals that acquired AIDS were evil and deserved to die.

They were furious when I stated that my place was to try to help them be in any way possible.

I learned once again that Christians can often be the most insensitive humans on earth, and are only concerned with their own supposed salvation.

"If" a creator exists, it is vicious, as are you!

To dis the Jews as having no god left to love them, because you believe the god now loves you ... bespeaks of you as a self-centered animal in deed! Vicious people serve vicious images of gods.
