We should try to get them to stand with us on this, don't the fundy think?
If not we are separated brethren for sure don't you think, that would be you changing the Truth.
Hello, if it aint a sin THEY all become pedophiles AND ALL THE CHILDREN SUFFER??? HELLO!!!
Many people are probably born attracted to the same sex (homosexuals). That's not a sin. The sin is when you put your sexual organ in someones digestive system or act in other sexual ways towards someone of the same sex. In this way, heterosexuals can be just as guilty as the homosexual. We can misuse our sexual gift too. If you divorced your husband because you were attracted to another man, you acted on an impure desire. You're just as guilty as a gay person as your stand before God.

This is why protestants never should have replaced the pillar and foundation of truth- which is the Church, with the bible only. Now you don't have the guarantee of truth. Basically, all you have is your private interpretations of the Bible, less the seven Books and few chapters you removed.

oh dear Junebug (mind if i call you?:), your agreement or not doesn't mean that i'm less right:-)
Right and wrong are matters of opinion. But if your conscience nudges you that you are right-fighting out of habit, and you don't pay heed to your conscience, then I suggest (as occurred with Mother Teresa)... you will not be at peace within. And that will make it your problem.

You KNOW now that you are putting other religious beliefs down to put your own UP on a pedestal in your own mind. You KNOW that is true, and only you can do something about the situation..........

For your information, the Temple system Judaism ended around 70 AD. Before and during and after that time Judaism became fragmented, and the Law was and is no longer favored as a way to heaven, even by Jews. Its merely a system of works, which can promote righteousness.
Jesus came along and said I have something better than works, and it will get you to heaven, but it will be much more difficult. And for that the religious and political leaders who wanted status quo, wanted him done away with, as other Jews were interested, which undermined their status....
Simple story. I wonder why you can't catch on?
As usual, you are posting Catholic dogmatic gibberish. Whether a certain system of Judaism stayed the same to Jews or not, the Catholics didn't do away with Judaism, as it still exists today.

And of course Judaism was fragmented. It used to be based on polytheism and now a lot of it is based on monotheism.

You need to do more study out from under the umbrella of your church, and broaden your scope ... or you will learn nothing other than what they want you to learn to keep you dumbed-down in their preferential CULT!

Almost right....Murder is a mortal sin, except when necessitated by self-defense, or defense of others....
....
So murder in self-defense is ordained by god, but suicide is a mortal sin that will be the end of association with god???

That means that the god PREFERS you murdering another human or humans over you murdering your own self.

Your dogmas are wacky ... as usual ... and they gave the Catholics permission to burn innocent humans at the stake as a NECESSITY because the ones your hierarchy labeled as "heretics" supposedly offended a god.

If you don't wake up from your cultish brain-SET ... no one can do it for you.

"Split Personaity" is a psychiatric disorder ( Dissociative identity disorder (DID), or multiple personality disorder (MPD).
It is a. "Disruption of identity characterized by two or more distinct personality states.".
DSM5 includes the following categories of dissociative disorders:
Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)
Dissociative Amnesia (DA) with or without Dissociative Fugue
Depersonalization/Derealizatio n Disorder
Other Specified Dissociative Disorder (OSDD)
Unspecified Dissociative Disorder (UDD)
According to the Fifth, Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders some of the symptoms often include the following:
dissociative amnesia,
dissociative fugue and
depersonalization disorder
There is no indication that Chrysostom presented any of these symptoms.
==========
Secondly your quote re the road to hell being paved by priest's skull is Chrysostoms encouragement to the believer to not just go along with what the priest or bishop says if they are not aligned with Scripture.
So are you implying that John Chrysostom loved the Jews and that is why he wanted them SLAYED???

You are defending a rabid Jew-hating KILLER in order to in turn defend your Catholic cult.

Those Catholic theologians (philosophers) trained you WELL ... sarcasm intended!

I realized that I first had to take my self out from under the umbrella of my own religious indoctrination as having any merit whatsoever ... in order to see that what I had been taught as truth was simply based on perception.

Once I learned that issue, it was a short step to seeing that all religion was and is based on "perception" ... and perception is nothing other than opinion.

Mythology is philosophy ... PERIOD!

You can make a savior-myth of HUGE importance in your own mind ... but what good comes of it when you fight with others and put down their savior-myths as false?

I suggest you think about it ... and you will see that your right-fighting ways are sadly lacking in any credibility whatsoever.

Christian ... "Jesus is MY savior!!!"

Muslim ... "The 12th Imam is the REAL savior.!!!!!!!"

Jew ... "The real messiah has not yet come to earth even for the first time!!!!!!!"

And that right-fighting attitude occurs ONLY in the Abrahamic religion. I suggest you think about all the right-fighting in all the other religions and it ought to stimulate your thoughts to go beyond what you were taught in your own "personalized" cults.

OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters)- Oklahoma has put a halt to new monuments at its Capitol after groups petitioned to have markers for Satan, a monkey god and a spaghetti monster erected near a large stone tablet inscribed with the Ten Commandments.

The Oklahoma Capitol Preservation Commission voted on Thursday to ban new monuments on statehouse grounds until a court battle is settled with the American Civil Liberties Union, which is seeking the removal of the Ten Commandments, local media reported.

Commission officials were not immediately available for comment on Friday.

As usual, you missed the point, that is OffDerMark..., suicide has mitigating circumstances, as does killing.

Does it matter what happened in the past? Is there anything I can do now, to change the past?

By the way, you might say, NASL talks to Self/self, I merely think about things, and if so moved try and get a reasonable explanation.

By the way, you stated a few days ago, or at least implied, that John the Baptist came after Jesus....Its time for you to go back and do some studying girl.

And the perception of reality is not reality.

But you bring up a good point. Pride, and false humility discredit the practice of both the religious, and irreligious person or group....
