What type of junk-food have you fed your brains to ingest the stupidity that a god that hates sin would create Adam and Eve ... knowing ahead of time that they were going to sin and go on to pollute all of the following generations with continual sin???

Can't you see that (within the theology) the god would have defeated his own purpose of wanting humans to avoid sin???

Did you never ask your selves these type of questions???

While the Catholics and Protestants were busy killing each other as heretics, they were trying to impress that people of the world that they had received the true meaning of love from the savior Jesus, who according to the Catholic church father John Chrysostom wanted the Jews slayed.

They impress upon the minds of the little children that the supposed god IS to be feared and never questioned.

That is how they hold the children who become adults to the cults.{{{FEAR}}}

War and pollution will end. Describing what God will do, Psalm 46:9 states: "He is making wars to cease to the extremity of the earth. The bow he breaks apart and does cut the spear in pieces; the wagons he burns in the fire." The Bible also teaches that God will "bring to ruin those ruining the earth.“Revelation—11:18

The pope's in the past lived allot more anonymous then today. People may have known their names, but I doubt they knew what they looked like or where they were going.. I believe some of these terrible stories about them were based on rumors too. Very affective Protestant propaganda.. you put one thing on a pamphlet, and by the time the story gets to the tenth person, the Pope was a whoremongering murderer. I personally think some have sinned, but only a small fraction. We've had some remarkable men in the Papacy. Many gave their lives for Jesus.

I was looking at the copy of the comic I have, and I remembered that it is a signed copy, with a little "doodle" of himself that Darrow added.

I wish we could add pictures to these blogs - I bet it would add another dimension to this site.

*shrugs*

PM me if you care to see it.

I wonder if Frank signs.....ya know, I don't recall ever seeing his name on the SDCC guest list during all the years I attended.

Hmmmm.....maybe I'll look for a book signing somewhere.

You are well-trained to protect the image of your specific cult.

It's those with your mindset that keep the religious groups fighting. It's the "I'm righteous and those other people are evil" that feeds the members of religious cults such nonsensical swill.

Atheist ... "So you believe that I am evil. What label do you give to your self. Do you believe you are holy?"

Christian ... "Heavens no! I don't have a label."

Atheist ... So you hang a negative label of evil on me, but you don't have any label either negative or positive that you apply to your self?

Christian ... "That's right."

Atheist ... "I don't believe you."

We've already proved your proof wrong from the Bible, this time ask God to open your ears in hearing.

Question: "Was Saint Peter the first pope?"

Answer: The Roman Catholic Church sees Peter as the first pope upon whom God had chosen to build His church (Matthew 16:18). It holds that he had authority (primacy) over the other apostles. The Roman Catholic Church maintains that sometime after the recorded events of the book of Acts, the Apostle Peter became the first bishop of Rome, and that the Roman bishop was accepted by the early church as the central authority among all of the churches. It teaches that God passed Peter’s apostolic authority to those who later filled his seat as bishop of Rome. This teaching that God passed on Peter’s apostolic authority to the subsequent bishops is referred to as “apostolic succession.”

The Roman Catholic Church also holds that Peter and the subsequent popes were and are infallible when addressing issues “ex cathedra,” from their position and authority as pope. It teaches that this infallibility gives the pope the ability to guide the church without error. The Roman Catholic Church claims that it can trace an unbroken line of popes back to St. Peter, citing this as evidence that it is the true church, since, according to their interpretation of Matthew 16:18, Christ built His church upon Peter.

But while Peter was central in the early spread of the gospel (part of the meaning behind Matthew 16:18-19), the teaching of Scripture, taken in context, nowhere declares that he was in authority over the other apostles, or over the church (having primacy). See Acts 15:1-23; Galatians 2:1-14; and 1 Peter 5:1-5. Nor is it ever taught in Scripture that the bishop of Rome, or any other bishop, was to have primacy over the church. Scripture does not even explicitly record Peter even being in Rome. Rather there is only one reference in Scripture of Peter writing from “Babylon,” a name sometimes applied to Rome (1 Peter 5:13). Primarily upon this and the historical rise of the influence of the Bishop of Rome come the Roman Catholic Church’s teaching of the primacy of the bishop of Rome. However, Scripture shows that Peter’s authority was shared by the other apostles (Ephesians 2:19-20), and the “loosing and binding” authority attributed to him was likewise shared by the local churches, not just their church leaders (see Matthew 18:15-19; 1 Corinthians 5:1-13; 2 Corinthians 13:10; Titus 2:15; 3:10-11).

Also, nowhere does Scripture state that, in order to keep the church from error, the authority of the apostles was passed on to those they ordained (the idea behind apostolic succession). Apostolic succession is “read into” those verses that the Roman Catholic Church uses to support this doctrine (2 Timothy 2:2; 4:2-5; Titus 1:5; 2:1; 2:15; 1 Timothy 5:19-22). Paul does NOT call on believers in various churches to receive Titus, Timothy, and other church leaders based on their authority as bishops or their having apostolic authority, but rather based upon their being fellow laborers with him (1 Corinthians 16:10; 16:16; 2 Corinthians 8:23).

What Scripture DOES teach is that false teachings would arise even from among church leaders, and that Christians were to compare the teachings of these later church leaders with Scripture, which alone is infallible (Matthew 5:18; Psalm 19:7-8; 119:160; Proverbs 30:5; John 17:17; 2 Peter 1:19-21). The Bible does not teach that the apostles were infallible, apart from what was written by them and incorporated into Scripture. Paul, in talking to the church leaders in the large city of Ephesus, makes note of coming false teachers. To fight against their error does NOT commend them to “the apostles and those who would carry on their authority”; rather, Paul commends them to “God and to the word of His grace”(Acts 20:28-32). It is Scripture that was to be the infallible measuring stick for teaching and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17), not apostolic successors. It is by examining the Scriptures that teachings are shown to be true or false (Acts 17:10-12).

Was Peter the first pope? The answer, according to Scripture, is a clear and emphatic “no.” Peter nowhere claims supremacy over the other apostles. Nowhere in his writings (1 and 2 Peter) did the Apostle Peter claim any special role, authority, or power over the church. Nowhere in Scripture does Peter, or any other apostle, state that their apostolic authority would be passed on to successors. Yes, the Apostle Peter had a leadership role among the disciples. Yes, Peter played a crucial role in the early spread of the gospel (Acts chapters 1-10). Yes, Peter was the “rock” that Christ predicted he would be (Matthew 16:18). However, these truths about Peter in no way give support to the concept that Peter was the first pope, or that he was the “supreme leader” over the apostles, or that his authority would be passed on to the bishops of Rome. Peter himself points us all to the true Shepherd and Overseer of the church, the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Peter 2:25).

The Word of God is what you want it to be.

Using delusion to "prove" a delusion is....

Delusional.

Face facts, if your god wanted to be clear, then there wouldn't have been so many rebellions, schisms, and denominations. This god would have led the CC away from the many mistakes and corruption , which led to the many breakaways.

Or maybe you just happen to be part of the minority of humanity - 5% to 10% at best - who have it right.

In which case, your posts should make more sense. You would have no need to spend your time here "debating" Born Again loonies.

Here are the facts. My God is the one true God.

My God has never called for any human being to murder or torture another human being.

Start with a moral God and go from there.

The others claim to know a god who according to the Bible - gets angry and jealous and killed well over a million humans based on unchecked emotion.

How absurd.

You want them to take it up (within the theology) with the god ADONAI who favored the Jews as his chosen few???
