As long as you insist on placing faith in the existence of a god ... you will follow the mentality of the theologians ... in your case Catholic theologians.

When you were an Atheist you agreed with me that religion is based on fear. But then you switched back to Catholicism which once again, in turn, bound you into their fear-based religion.

Heaven for those who are Catholics ... and hell for those who are NOT Catholics.

You might be right I am an indoctrinated idiot....I have nothing but MYSELF in the way.
But I tend to think the carrot and stick approach to teaching has merit.

You chose to leave Atheism to go back and follow the theology that you found ultra-pleasing to your emotional desires.

The Jews, after they switched to their one-god dogma also preached that the only god in the sky loved THEM as his chosen few.

We can see the mess they created, when in turn, the Catholics, Muslims and Protestants wanted and demanded the whole action for their own personalized cults that they also claimed was and IS based on absolute truth.

And the bloodshed is far from being over, as Christians in Islamic countries are once again taking up arms to prove who owns the "truth."

Idiocy abounds.

What God lacks is convictions- stability of character. He ought to be a Presbyterian or a Catholic or something- not try to be everything.

Religion in a nutshell ...

"I know that I'm not feeling this horrible pain for no reason. There MUST BE a being out there that is punishing me for being bad. I will learn how to please this all-powerful being, and even though I will still have to suffer in this life ... I will be rewarded with eternal bliss in the next life. YES ... I have it all figured out now. I know the truth. I must worship this being and then it will in turn, love me for eternity."

Different cultures accept different things as being right - or wrong. Keep an open mind, but once you have chosen, accept that you have made a choice and the consequences of the choice will come to you.

I am about to discuss the disease called 'sacred'. It is not, in my opinion, any more divine or more sacred than other diseases, but has a natural cause, and its supposed divine origin is due to men's inexperience, and to their wonder at its peculiar character.

I always avoid prophesying beforehand, because it is a much better policy to prophesy after the event has already taken place.

I suggest there is not a preacher on earth that studies scriptural words, and in turn believes that the self is one bit evil.

No matter which religion ... the preachers always use the scriptures to preach that sin is OUT THERE and holiness is IN HERE with US.

That bad habit, in and of it's self, should alert all humans to the fact that religion is USED as mental "BAIT" to in turn, lure unsuspecting believers into divisive, right-fighting cults.

The pope said:
AnthonyMN quotes the pope, "It is true that the Muslim world is not totally mistaken when it reproaches the West of Christian tradition of moral decadence and the manipulation of human life." End quote.
It figures this pope would side with the Muslims. Manipulation of human life is a Rome specialty. Imagine a so-called church who tells the world they stand against abortion after killing millions. Rome is the king of manipulation.
AnthonyMN quotes the pope, "It is deplorable that homosexual persons have been and are the object of violent malice in speech or in action. Such treatment deserves condemnation from the church's pastors wherever it occurs." End quote.
Apparently the pope believes it is more kind to allow a homosexual to die in their sin.. This man is a low life liberal who lowers the church down to the world rather than the world back to absolute Biblical truth.
AnthonyMN quotes the pope, "“It is theologically and anthropologically important for woman to be at the center of Christianity. Through Mary, and the other holy women, the feminine element stands at the heart of the Christian religion.” End quote.
Really? The pope is in direct conflict with the Bible. The Word of God proclaims,“A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent”(1 Timothy 2:11-12). In the church, God assigns different roles to men and women. This is a result of the way mankind was created and the way in which sin entered the world (1 Timothy 2:13-14). God, through the apostle Paul, restricts women from serving in roles of teaching and/or having spiritual authority over men. This precludes women from serving as pastors over men, which definitely includes preaching to, teaching, and having spiritual authority. Maybe God was just joking!
The pope tells us through Mary the feminine element stands at the heart of Christianity. Does anyone on this forum believe Mary is the heart of Christianity. The heart of Christianity is Jesus Christ. May this pope rot in hell with his brother, satan!!!

Star C says........The three kings celebrated Jesus in the year one

Michael says..........Show me in scriptures where it indicates 3 kings? 3 Gifts doesn't mean three Kings. The story in the bible (only) indicates 3 gifts, it doesn't say how many kings. Maybe there were 89 Kings, or 6 Kings. Don't read between the lines. Get the story correct.

.....Yes I celebrated christmas season (and we do eat turkey in Canada) with family and friends just like most everyone else does. I went to the mall and shopping centres and visiting people much like everyone else did.
.......and I too hope you had a wonderful christmas and hopefully a happy new year 2014.

Tertullian ("Adv. Marcion.", III, xiii) says that they were wellnigh kings (fere reges), and so agrees with what we have concluded from non-Biblical evidence.
" they were wellnigh kings (fere reges), and so agrees with what we have concluded from non-Biblical evidence. The Church, indeed, in her liturgy, applies to the Magi tQhe words: "The kings of Tharsis and the islands shall offer presents; the kings of the Arabians and of Saba shall bring him gifts: and all the kings of the earth shall adore him" (Psalm 71:10).

Neither were they magicians: the good meaning of magoi, though found nowhere else in the Bible, is demanded by the context of the second chapter of St. Matthew.

(Find the same meaning in Mt 2: 1-12)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to u as well.

I know that you do not blindly follow things issued by the U.S.

My concern for you is that you do not blindly follow things because of Israel. It is most likely, according to my understanding of eschatology(which is small) that Israel will follow the Anti-Christ before the end times....And that may be not just a person for a time, but a way of life for awhile, and culminate in a person.

So my concern then is don't think God is pleased with Israel(as a State), just as God is not pleased with certain directions the U.S. has and is taking now....

Too funny, lady, Catholics gave you the Bible. All we are saying is that first came the Church that kept "The Word" alive. Our whole Mass is Bible base from beginning to end. Catholics have more Bible readings then any Protestant church. That's daily Mass too.

Your biggest fear in life seems to be that Jane and others will not suffer as you hope.
No? Did God tell you to judge her? Of course not. In fact, the exact opposite is true according to your own holy book.
Per your imaginary god, you are supposed to forgive and love Jane, not claim she's going to suffer.
You lamely ignore the basics of your own holy book, because you are overcome by fear.

I think you have come to some erroneous conclusions from my writings. But I do not judge them, but prefer to take the onus for them, as my inadequate descriptions may cause you to err....

June has the choice of free-will, and those choices lead her to various ends. June does not ask for forgiveness, so I can give none to her, though I am always willing. My obligation to love her is inherent in Christianity, and this I do not withhold.

Perhaps you include me in the group of Christians that have faith without reason, and conclude that I am just another ignorant fool?

People can conclude anything they want to from data and facts, as it involves preconceptions for their conclusions.
