Romans 10:9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
Confess and Believe is a choice Mikey...You may not be a catholic anymore but you are still think like one.

....If Christianity/Islam relied on conversions only to grow the faithful numbers, Christianity/Islam beliefs would have died out centuries ago.

I agree. Snake handling is just plain dumb.
You KNOW that despite what the Bible says, the faithful will die -- just like the unfaithful -- when handling poisonous snakes.
If the Bible were correct and no believers died from the practice, it would be the greatest verse in the Bible.
But alas, reality tells us the Bible is just plain wrong.
Many fine people of deep faith have die because the Bible is just plain wrong.
Or maybe god said.... "Oops, I didn't know good people would kill themselves because I wasn't clear."
Oops.
Everyone's going to die somehow, right? Might as well be from a deadly snake bite. It's probably not anymore painful than any other violent or prolonged death.

The verse these folks chose for their new religion actually reads like this:

[Jesus said to the apostles]
"18 They shall take up serpents; and if they shall drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them: they shall lay their hands upon the sick, and they shall recover."

He didn't actually say the snake would not bite them, did He?

Religion and Traditions have absolutely nothing to do with a relationship with Jesus Christ. Your post tells us you were a confused little catholic who had religion.

I posted this but like your friend June you ignore it. Read it this time:

9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.

*the individual has to confess and believe...this is a choice and has nothing to do with family or have you were brought up.

So you suppose Job was talking about Mary? You are the dumbest person on this forum. Mary is nothing more than a filthy sinner saved by grace. She was married had many more children after the birth of Jesus. She had lots of sex with Joseph her husband.
Matthew 1:24-25, 24 " Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: 25 AND HE KNEW HER NOT "TILL" SHE HAD BROUGHT FORTH HER "FIRSTBORN" SON: and he called his name Jesus."
What does "till" mean? What does the statement "firstborn son" mean? Let's put it like this. I am the first born son in my family. I have siblings. Can they claim the term "first born"? How ignorant are you that you cannot understand black print on white paper?
So the first born child can't be called first born unless a second child is born?

Consider this verse:
Acts 8:40
But Philip was found in Azotus; and passing through, he preached the gospel to all the cities,*TILL* he came to Caesarea.

Does that mean that after Philip got to Caesarea, he stopped preaching the gospel?

And this one:
Romans 8:22
For we know that every creature groaneth and travaileth in pain, even *TILL* now.

Does this mean that after this was written, all the creatures were pain-free?

And this verse:
[Jesus said to the Church at Thyatira]
25 Yet that, which you have (the Faith), hold fast till I come.

Does this mean that Jesus was asking them to abandon the Faith after He had come?

Arrogance encourages readers to believe that they are ALL following divine will ... and that those who disagree with them are evil.

Muslims that dare to read words in the Qur'an will then kill other Muslims who glean different meanings from the same words.

Placing high value on the self's meanings from what humans have been taught to believe are divinely inspired words, is an ancient very bad habit.

Because they were taught by the theologians that if they don't preach the gospel of "truth" at others, the others can't be "saved."

That is why we see the continual fighting between Catholics and Protestants on this forum.

They use the same scriptures to imply that each other is evil.

Your anger is obvious. She makes you angry. That's control.
Does Jesus teach that you should become angry? Of course not.
God or not, Jesus was a wise dude. Why not listen to his words? Like what did he say were his most important teachings?
Is it just a delusion, or do Jesus' own words matter?
Ramen
First off, I am not angry at all. Nothing June says has made me angry.
Secondly, Jesus Himself became angry and violently threw the riff-raff out of the Temple because they were dishonoring His Father's House.

The Beatitudes, as recorded in the books of Matt and Luke, are the words we are supposed to try to live by. These proclamations were revolutionary, and still are.
Btw, Jesus preached this on the sermon on the mount. Some of these He repeated at the sermon on the plain, as recorded in Luke.

They don't want to see their own religion as dirty or evil. That is why they always point outward at others as being the evil ones.

BIBLE QUIZ 101...
Was Jesus' first sermon on a plain or a mount?
MAT 5:1,2: "And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying...."
LUK 6:17,20: "And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people...came to hear him.. And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples and said..."
The Bible is full of contradictions that only delusional reasoning can resolve.

~~~

The Bible does not teach that we are born again through baptism..

WATER. Baptism COMES AFTER THE FACT.......IT IS OUR outward manifestation before the world that we are born again.

WATER Baptism is US.....showing the world that we have...believed in our hearts and.Confessed with out mouth

that

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD, AND

THAT WE ARE NO LONGER INTEND TO SERVE SIN...

THAT WE HAVE BECOME FELLOW CITIZENS WITH THE SAINTS..OF GOD.

IT IS AN OUTWARD SHOWING

BEFORE THE WORLD THAT

(WE HAVE CHANGED MASTERS)

WE HAVE EXPERIENCED AND INWARD WORK OF GRACE.

Eph_2:19 Now therefore ye/WE are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

Joh 17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Joh 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
Joh 17:18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
Joh 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

NOTE ***(JESUS PRAYED FOR US)

Joh 17:20 *** Neither pray I for these alone, but --->for them also which shall believe on me through their word; <---

Joh 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

WATER BAPTISM IS SHOWING THE WORLD THAT WE ARE STRIVING TO BE ONE WITH THE FATHER FROM THAT MOMENT ON.

I agree!

Devout believers read some words in a book that they are certain are divinely inspired ... then they maul snakes to try to become masters over the snakes, and then the snakes do what snakes do and kill the humans.

Humans are masters of ignorance.
