I didn't say God wouldn't send anyone to Hell. I said God loves us. If we don't love Him our chances of going to Heaven would appear to be slim. But then it's up to Jesus to decide; not me; not you.

Now THAT leaves an awesome lot to imagination.
One could say this....our consciousness is created at the beginning of the process.

Interesting theory.

How much imagination did you use to come up with it?

Your god's love seems to be highly conditional.

Either love this god or else. That sounds very tyrannical.

But it gets worse.

The odds of knowing about this god enough to love it is very small, unless one happens to be born into the right family in the right culture.

Why doesn't this god provide equal opportunity for "love" to all humans equally? The Chinese or Indians for example?

Don't bother to spin it. There is no way to explain such an unfair, demanding god.

Gods should at least be fair and moral themselves.

Sorry, I did not think you were cherry-picking. I was thinking of somebody else(June)..
I think we are on the same page here. But I would qualify an objective opinion, and say that the RCC is one of the largest religion in the West. So its history, will impact and be impacted by Western thought, experiences, beliefs and such....
But perhaps have opened some new avenues to explore, which haven't been drummed up here before...,
Divine Right of Kings and Manifest Destiny.
They are bitter pills to swallow for a commoner like me!
But in general, we all live in some area of the world of which is considered part of some empire, kingdom, or state. It comes down to security, and giving up one's individual rights. Since about WWII it seems we are on a steep path. Perhaps the cliff is not to far ahead. It may be better to set up camp, post sentries, and wait until morning before going on...?(It sounds like Exodus from Egypt.(smiles)).
We all must swallow the bitter pill, kings and commoners alike.

DEAR JESUS,

Paul needed to see you in order to believe.... and you appeared.

Thomas needed to see you in order to believe.... and you appeared.

Many in the Bible needed to see you in order to believe.... and you appeared.

I am just like Paul, and Thomas, and so many in the Bible. Show yourself and I will believe.

You are Bible illiterate!!! Neither God nor Jesus decide whom goes where.....Hollywood 101 is not a good source for Scripture!!!!

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Paul believed.....he had a mission......put Christians in jail or kill them!!!!! Thomas was with Him three years.....he did not believe.....Peter was with Christ three years...he denied knowing him...three ttimes...

Jesus apperared to huge multitudes during His three year ministry....not all believed Him...nor believed who He said He was....some had him crucified....so, the old "Seeing is believing" is not alway true..

He said: Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

FYI: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

Obviously reading is not your long suit. Leviticus 20:13 is not my writing. God wrote it. If you have a problem with throwing stones take it up with Him.

Thanks again for revealing your Biblical ignorance.
In the days in which our Bible was translated, the Apocrypha was accepted reading based on its historical value, though not accepted as Scripture by anyone outside of the Roman Catholic church. The King James translators therefore placed it between the Old and New Testaments for its historical benefit to its readers. They did not integrate it into the Old Testament text as do the corrupt Alexandrian manuscripts.
That they rejected the Apocrypha as divine is very obvious by the seven reasons which they gave for not incorporating it into the text. They are as follows:
1. Not one of them is in the Hebrew language, which was alone used by the inspired historians and poets of the Old Testament.
2. Not one of the writers lays any claim to inspiration.
3. These books were never acknowledged as sacred Scriptures by the Jewish Church, and therefore were never sanctioned by our Lord.
4. They were not allowed a place among the sacred books, during the first four centuries of the Christian Church.
5. They contain fabulous statements, and statements which contradict not only the canonical Scriptures, but themselves; as when, in the two Books of Maccabees, Antiochus Epiphanes is made to die three different deaths in as many different places.
6. It inculcates doctrines at variance with the Bible, such as prayers for the dead and sinless perfection.
7. It teaches immoral practices, such as lying, suicide, assassination and magical incantation.
This crap you posted above,you got it directlt off the internet. Why? Because you are not qualified to discuss things that you know absolutely about. Foolish mortal,did I not say in my response that I do not recommend these Apocraphal books for a novice (such as yourself). However a well trained student of the Bible that is Spirit led can handle them because they will be able to see when something is written that is totally misleading. Only the unlearned would call them spurious as you did. There is a wealth of info in them for the Bible student that has Spiritual eyes to see and I can practically guarantee you that that definitley EXCLUDES YOU.

Now I will say no more on this subject with you because a wise man that argues with a fool becomes a bigger fool than the fool.

You're dismissed.

It is in the Old and New Testament:
<<<Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.>>>
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know GodÂ’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
So what you're saying is that we are then STILL UNDER THE LAW,RIGHT?

A man with no mind is "mindless" and lost. Fits you to a T.
"I wrote unto you in an epistle not to keep company with fornicators [Greek:'pornos'-paramour/male prostitutes]...with such an one not to eat" (I Corinthians 5:9-11).
"For this you know, that no whoremonger [Greek: pornos-paramour/male prostitute]...has any inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ and of God" (Ephesians 5:5).
"Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for ...whoremongers [Greek: pornos-paramour/male prostitute]...and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine" (I Timothy 1:9-10).
"Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled, but whoremongers [Greek: pornos-paramour/male prostitute] and adulterers God will judge" (Hebrews 13:4).
"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers [Greek: pornos-paramour/male prostitute], and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone which is the second death" (Revelation 21:8).
"Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs and sorcerers, and whoremongers [Greek: parnos-paramour/male prostitute], and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes [practices] a lie" (Revelation 22:14-15).
"Be not deceived, neither ...effeminate [Greek: malakos-catamite/boy with man sex] shall inherit the kingdom of God" (I Corinthians 6:9-10).
"Be not deceived, neither ...abusers of themselves with mankind [Greek: arsenokoites-sodomites/male bed partners/male-liers] shall inherit the kingdom of God" (I Corinthians 6:9-10).
"For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense [penalty] of their error which was meet [due]" (Romans 1:26-27).
Again,what you're then saying is that we are therefore still under the law right?

You know what,when it comes to rightly dividing the word of truth,many of you "Christians" don't know cat sh!t from apple butter. And again s'cuse my French,LOL.
