Without fear of hell, there's nothing you can preach that is of value!

I don't preach.I simply propose different opinions and points of view. I don't claim absolute truth.

My 'religion' is one of questioning rather than knowing.

Nah.
YOU just can't handle the truth...especially when it concerns YOU.
I notice you have given no report to the accusation that I have given any fraudulent information as of yet(that you blatantly accused me of).
***Either prove your statement or apologize for your hateful arrogant accusation.
All I expect is that you back your accusations up ...or be considered as a complete liar and fool.
It is your own statements that will make the determination....and you are your own worst enemy.
I will make the accusation that YOU are a LIAR.

Really? Was Origen a "Christian"? Or was he a Flavian/Caesaren/Pizo name changing Theocracist with an agenda?
Let's see how much you really know about "Christian" and it's inception.

Can you "name" some "breakaway Jews"? Or are you just blowing hot air again?
Please be specific...lest you show yourself to be a complete fraud.
Name some breakaway Jews?
Are you serious?

We could start by naming Simon called Peter, James the son of Zebedee and his brother John, Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananean and Paul of Tarsus, all became great Catholics.

But the list also continues on uninterrupted through the centuries.
Yea,....there is not enough space here to name them all....'specifically'.

Marge ..if you are talking about that SUPPOSED stuff from Francis???

Did you look at the link to it ??? It's supposed satire ...But nog funny at all...IMO
When you actually hear a "religious person" spout that ...look for the end ..

And yet...any question I might posit about your statements, you never answer with any semblance of fact or actuality in any form whatsoever.
WHO IS the real blowhard here?
YOU---That's who---you have little or no clue what the hell you are even talking about at all.
Even if I might agree with you, you have already compromised any argument I might have had an agreement with because of your arrogant ignorance and stupidity in profession and ignorance. As far as I am concerned, you would be better to just shut the fulk up...and leave it to those of us who might be able to actually communicate with some reason.
YOU are a HEAVY liability!!!!!!!!!!

Whoever he was, he was anti-Semitic.
Origen of Alexandria (185-254 A.D.)– A ecclesiastical writer and teacher who contributed to the early formation of Christian doctrines.
We may thus assert in utter confidence that the Jews will not return to their earlier situation, for they have committed the most abominable of crimes, in forming this conspiracy against the Savior of the human race…hence the city where Jesus suffered was necessarily destroyed, the Jewish nation was driven from its country, and another people was called by God to the blessed election.
Well...That shows about how much you really know about any of the history of "christianity".
It would be better if you didn't pretend to know any more.

Can you verify the existence of Socrates without the writings of Plato and Xenophon?

<quoted text> If your church is the one that is spoken of in the bible then that means your church takes the Lord's supper every Lord's day,Acts 20:7, 11.“On the first day of the week we came together to break
bread. Singing only is authorized, Ephesians 5;19 and Colossians 3;16, Baptism is essential to one's salvation. Mark 16;16, Romans 16;16 Tithing is also done every Lords day 1 Corinthians 16;2,,On the first day of each week, you should each put aside a portion of the money you have earned. Don't wait until I get there and then try to collect it all at once. Elders and deacons are the only offices that are to be used. If your church doesn't worship this way then your church is a man made church, and not the church of the bible, which the Church of Christ is that church of the bible.
Breaking bread has nothing to do with the Lord's Supper...

The expression “the breaking of bread” found in Acts 2 was commonly used amongst the Jews to refer to the sharing of a meal in conscious religious fellowship, and this usage is found in the New Testament, not least in the Gospel by the same author as Acts and even elsewhere in the Acts.

The significance of the religious aspect of the breaking of bread would be greatly heightened for the disciples in the light of the Last Supper, but this is not the same as saying that they held a ritual meal deliberately re-enacting the Last Supper in ­conscious obedience to the command of Christ, commemorating his death through eating bread and drinking a cup; and these features would be necessary if we are to regard the “breaking of bread” as equating with the Lord’s Supper.

Rather, the evidence indicates that in the New Testament the expression “the breaking of bread” or “broke bread” refers to the usual Jewish practice of prayer with which a hunger-satisfying meal commenced. When we recognize that references to the breaking of bread are not references to the Lord’s Supper, we see the significance of what we learn from Paul’s teaching in 1 Corinthians.

Wow, amazing how brave and unafraid of God atheists are, actually their not. You know when I am proven right about their being a God how horrifying it will be, so unimaginable the terror that will grip you that I am so scared for you that I just can't stop trying to save you because the fear for you is so unbearable to me for you to be lost that I couldn't stop no matter what. The only way I can relax is to give it my all and then some to try and get you saved. I urge you to go to the nearest Church of Christ and study with them and then when you're convinced then be then you will know you are saved, and a home in heaven awaits you after this life is over. It's so amazing to think people can actually joke about the horror that awaits those who are lost and really not give it a second thought, until it's to late.

The statements,of JOHN PAUL...You are quoting..I did not comment on ...
John Paul said the same thing!!!!!! And this is from a Catholic web site!!!!!

Heaven, Hell and Purgatory by Pope John Paul II

Hell is the State of Those who Reject God

At the General Audience of Wednesday, 28 July 1999, the Holy Father reflected on hell as the definitive rejection of God. In his catechesis, the Pope said that care should be taken to interpret correctly the images of hell in Sacred Scripture, and explained that "hell is the ultimate consequence of sin itself... Rather than a place, hell indicates the state of those who freely and definitively separate themselves from God, the source of all life and joy".

----------
And he said:(from a Catholic web site....)

Heaven is the transcendent dwelling-place of the living God

Metaphorically speaking, heaven is understood as the dwelling-place of God, who is thus distinguished from human beings (cf. Ps 104:2f.; 115:16; Is 66:1). He sees and judges from the heights of heaven (cf. Ps 113:4-9) and comes down when he is called upon (cf. Ps 18:9, 10; 144:5). However the biblical metaphor makes it clear that God does not identify himself with heaven, nor can he be contained in it (cf. 1 Kgs 8:27); and this is true, even though in some passages of the First Book of the Maccabees "Heaven" is simply one of God's names (1 Mc 3:18, 19, 50, 60; 4:24, 55).
