It's plain to see that every preacher in every religion believed and believes that the "thoughts" of their savior-gods were aligned to the mentalities of the preachers.
The attitude was and IS ... "My savior speaks through me to you."
How handy is that self-serving mentality of all the preachers, which has no bearing whatsoever on anything BUT philosophical gibberish?"
A preacher of the word preaches from the bible, so he can always back up what he says, after all it's what's in the bible we're to preach.

On one hand the Catholic church fathers taught that Jesus was a Jewish Rabbi his whole life on earth.

Yet in another theology they taught that the Catholic John the Baptist baptized Jesus before he was crucified in the river Jordon.

Slight of vocal cords and slight of pens was the name of their crafty GAME.

If only the theologians had had the same mindset, things might have gone as PLANNED and their lies would not be in plain view for all to see.

Billy Graham's tongue split and forked out into two different directions when he contradicted his own story and claimed that now "god" allows other than Christians into HEAVEN.
Martin Luther's tongue also split when he took entirely different meanings from the same bible, as he in turn jumped the hoop from Catholicism into Protestantism.
If you study the preachers, you will see that their games are not dependent on one theme ... yet they all claim that they know the meaning of "god's" TRUTH.
Billy Graham is a false teacher. He doesn't know the truth of the bible, first of all he never tells anyone to be baptized, he just tells them to go find them a good church. Billy Graham is a lost soul who is credited with leading many to eternal separation from God. The only way a person can get to heaven is being a Christian, this is achieved by being baptized after studying and knowing the true church of the bible, if you don't know that how would you know where to go to church and worship God in spirit and in truth as God commands. This can only be done by being a member of the church of the bible ,which is the Church of Christ, as this is the only church that worships according to the bible.

If (within the theology) Jesus was born into Judaism, taught Judaism all his life, and died on the cross as a faithful Jew, he couldn't have chosen to be baptized as a Catholic. It would NOT BE possible.

That lie (within the theology) is plain to see.

“For there is no need, to persons of intelligence, to attempt to prove, from the deeds of Christ subsequent to his baptism, that his soul and his body, his human nature like ours, were real, and no phantom of the imagination.

For the deeds done by Christ after his baptism, and especially his miracles, gave indication and assurance to the world of the Deity hidden in his flesh."

"Catholicos" ... what an interesting word stemming from Judaism!
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>

High Priest (Judaism)

His powers

The Great Sanhedrin alone had the right to appoint, or confirm the appointment of, the high priest. His consecration might take place only in the day-time. Two high priests must not be appointed together. Every high priest had a "mishneh" (a second) called the Segan, or "memunneh", to stand at his right; another assistant was the "Catholicos" ("Yad", l.c. 16–17).

If you don't see it, you don't WANT to see it.

Preaching is more important to you than studying your cultish thoughts from the outside IN.

There's an old saying ... that to see one's own culture as others see it, one has to leave one's own country.

You refuse to budge from your deeply imbedded self-indoctrination. And therefore you will continue to preach that although you believe in the Jesus myth, you are not IN a religion.

No one can change your own belief but YOU.

Do you think that someone is not saved/born-again, if they do not attend the Church of Christ?
Peace
That's correct, as it's the only church spoken of in the bible as the church that worships in spirit and in truth. Jesus built one church, meaning one church that is set up the way God has commanded it to be set up and a way to take of the Lord's supper the way God commands. If your church doesn't meet these requirements than your church is a man made church. The Church of Christ was established in the year 33 AD on the day of Pentecost in which 3,000 souls were added to the Church of Christ. Baptism is essential to one's salvation, and singing is what God has commanded in worship, no instruments. Ephesians 5;19, Colossians 3;16, Romans 16;16, Mark 16;16,Acts 2;37-40 The reason for singing only is God wants to hear only his creation, not instruments that were made by man. God wants to hear the purest form of praise that can be achieved and that could only come from singing without instruments. The bible tells us how to do everything he wants us to do to please him and worship him, and that's the way we're to do it, no other way will do as it would be a sin.

When I was under the spell of religion, I couldn't understand how others could be free OF religion. It made no sense to me that humans would not believe in the existence of a god of pure love, simply because that was how I believed.

Now that I'm free of all religion, I have an understanding of those who are still in religion.

Been there ... done that!

It was the aim of theologians to encourage people into places of worship, where they could keep on hypnotizing them with the same dogmas over and over and over.

Theologians didn't and don't want followers to be free of the cults, as that is HOW all theologians earn their livings.

Are you NOW insinuating that Jesus will save you even though he DOESN'T adore you?
God will be mine and everyone elses "final judge" regarding the Salvation for every individual! God loves you, me and everyone else, unconditionally. Each of us has the opportunity to "accept HIS love" or reject it, as our response to HIM, and if we accept HIS love, we will proclaim and worship HIM as "each day" as we, as Catholics do, at Daily Mass and receiving Our Lords TRUE BODY and TRUE BLOOD in the Eucharist! As Paul tells us (as he himself did) to "run the race, to fight the good fight, to keep the faith!---AND THEN--
(again) God will be mine and everyone elses "final judge" regarding our place of eternal rest and Heavenly Salvation with HIM!!!

All preachers in all religions can be tricked (by their own mentalities) that they are preaching God-given truths. Yet none of you agree.

If that doesn't wake you out of your hypnotic trance, I suggest that where you are, is where you will choose to stay.

According to your dogma ... ONLY if everyone converts to Catholicism.

Otherwise they are doomed to spend eternity in Catholic hell.

Even Protestants that do believe in Jesus, are doomed by Catholics to Catholic hell and vice versa. Protestants believe that Catholics will spend eternity in Protestant hell.

Many people in religion have ended their physical lives in the belief on one hand that god is merciful and will forgive them of suicide. And on the other, that god is cruel and will reject them for committing suicide.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>
The third case is the much-publicized one of Elizabeth and Henry Pitney Van Dusen. Dr. VanDusen, age 77, was the former president of New York’s Union Theological Seminary and a distinguished Presbyterian minister. He and his wife, Elizabeth, age 80, discussed suicide with their friends and then signed a pact before taking an overdose of sleeping pills. She wrote:
We have both had very full and satisfying lives.... But since Pitney had his stroke five years ago, we have not been able to do any of the things we want to do ... and my arthritis is much worse. There are also many helpless old people who without modern medicinal care would have died, and we feel God would have allowed them to die when their time had come. Nowadays it is difficult to die. We feel that this way we are taking will become more usual and acceptable as the years pass. We are both increasingly weak and unwell, and who would want to die in a nursing home?... "O Lamb of God that takest away the sins of the world, grant us thy peace."
The Van Dusens realized that some nursing homes are virtual tombs where the elderly are buried alive. They asked for God’s forgiveness in advance for any wrong they might be committing by their decision to leave this life before they needlessly suffered even more. Although they did not say so, they were probably also disturbed by the thought of the loneliness that would follow if one survived the other.

By not having the faith they should have after all of these years they should of been able to fight off the devil because they would've had the armor, or wisdom of God to help them in this time in their lives, but they allowed the devil to take hold and caused them to sin. I do not feel these people were truly Christians to start with. It's not to say that suicide can't cause a person Christian or not to go over the fence is always possible, God will be the judge when it comes to Christians that do this, as not all acts of suicide are acts that can't be forgiven.
