Using your paranoid approach to Christianity, I would disagree that you pray before God. I bet there's a photo of your family on the night stand. Or how about the night stand itself, you must be worshiping it!!<quoted text>
Liam, I have the prevail of praying before God not a stone or a statue, The only throphy that priest had was probably Pauls head. Because Pauls head was cut off in Rome.
I knelt before a stone that laid next to the Apostle Paul for 2,000 yrs. I reflected on the Saints zeal and sacrifice he made bringing the Gospel to us. Only a fanatic would try and dissect this into something bad. I believe all you're doing is stealing Paul's letters and using them against the Church he helped establish. I don't think there is anything in your interpretations of his letters that match up with what he actually taught. You'll never bother with the truth LTM. The truth destroys your theology and you know it. Its best to make-believe you never heard it.
