YEAH ... Lightning strikes to kill humans was also easy for the gods. They really took that killing of evil humans as serious stuff. Sarcasm intended.

But why the gods had to be so cruel to other animals that never sinned is a REAL mystery to those who care to question the stupefied religious dogmas.

Death by lightning for giraffes, elephants, sheep and cows

Lightning represents a significant hazard in the natural world and animals large and small may be killed during storms. The death of elephants following lightning strikes has been reported and Spinage (1994) discussed two individuals in Uganda that died this way. Norma Jean, a circus elephant, was struck and killed by lightning in Illinois in 1972 (more on that case here; it includes a photo of Norma Jean’s tombstone). There are also cases where wild deer have been killed by lightning, also rhinos (the image above, by the way, shows an Australian cow that apparently survived a lightning strike. Story here)[below: sheep killed by lightning. Read on].

Very true. Thank you.

Y'know what...if there was any tangible proof that your church was what it claims, it would have been presented and displayed for all the world to observe as undeniable evidence.
THAT has yet (for 2000 years) to be seen or proven.
Can't come up with the proof given 2000 years ---OUCH!

But never mind. According to the modern preachers of Christianity, God no longer allows the devil the privilege of burning souls for eternity.

Apparently now God just keeps the evil souls at arm's length and no longer allows them to feel his love, and that new attitude of God has put the devil out of work.

God has apparently become a lot nicer through the years. He's mellowing out with "time."

Maybe in another couple hundred years, he will be able to completely retire, and not feel a need to deprive any more human souls of his love.

Jesus told us we can 'know' who is Christian and who is not by their fruit and your catholic religion is not of truth Hojo. nor your teachings or tradtions, all are against or opposite the written Word.

We all received Jesus (the Word) before we started preaching the Truth, myself I only read the Bible after I was Saved(received Jesus).

The Lost Doctrines of Christianity

The Secret Teachings

Ancient writings were discovered in 1945 which revealed more information about the concept of reincarnation from the sect of Christians called "Gnostics". This sect was ultimately destroyed by the Roman orthodox church, their followers burned at the stake and their writings wiped out.

You are correct. Jesus was a Jew. And his immediate followers were and remained observant Jews.

They were neither Catholic nor Protestant.

Now you can pretend you don't have a religions, but the author of James wrote that God liked religion.

Odd that, eh?

So time for The One Who Knows' disclaimer regarding that claim -- I think the FCC requires it:

WARNING: This statement may not be true in all states and countries and may be dangerous in the hands of anyone who isn’t generally considered a nut and not taken seriously anyway. It does not apply to the Internal Revenue Code’s exemption of certain religious institutions from compliance with obligations related to reporting income and paying taxes thereon, the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of religion, and various and sundry provisions of the US Code and the codes and constitutions of the states, commonwealths, and US territories that provide exclusions from civil or criminal regulatory schemes for religious institution and their principals, agents, employees, and members or that bestow affirmative benefits thereunto. It also is not applicable for purposes of taking advantage of any administrative decisions, rules, or regulations intended to benefit religious activities, including but not necessarily limited to those applicable to governmental funding of faith-based charitable activities, or to any local or municipal codes or regulations exempting religious institutions from zoning and similar obligations. Nor does it apply for purposes of interpreting any case law of any court that limits governmental intrusion into ecumenical affairs or applies a privilege, shield, or other protection for those activities. Further, application of this statement when interpreting literature, as well as reference materials, such as dictionaries, encyclopedias, concordances, and similar intellectual works, may cause erroneous results. Additionally, it is inapplicable to interpreting the writings of James, who didn't get the "Christianity Isn't a Religion Memo" and therefore errantly wrote about religion in the New Testament.

OK. I made that FCC thing up.

Nut.

It was not a sect.

There were many Gnostic groups with varied belief sets.

And no one got burned at the stake that I am aware of, at least not when the church, in the 4th century, sought to suppress the Gnostic writings.

And it is from that effort to suppress those writings that the Nag Hammadi library likely survived, buried in the desert rather than destroyed as ordered.

British Court Charges The Mormon Church With Fraud Over Its Teachings

By JacobSloan on February 10, 2014 in News

If organized religions solicit money from the public while propagating factually untrue claims, do they amount to illegal marketing scams? A British legal challenge is putting Mormonism to the test, the Telegraph reports:

A British magistrate has issued an extraordinary summons to the worldwide leader of the Mormon church alleging that its teachings about mankind amount to fraud.

Thomas S. Monson, President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been ordered to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London next month to defend the church’s doctrines including beliefs about Adam and Eve and Native Americans.

To which Gnostic "group" do YOU belong???

>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>

From the book,“The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire,” by Edward Gibbon,(Coyright 1963, by Frank C. Bourne … comes the following…….

The Gnostics blended with the faith of Christ many sublime but obscure tenets, which they derived from oriental philosophy, and even from the religion of Zoroaster, concerning the eternity of matter, the existence of the two principles, and the mysterious hierarchy of the invisible world. As soon as they launched out into the vast abyss, they delivered themselves to the guidance of disordered imagination; and as the paths of error are various and infinite, the Gnostics were imperceptibly divided into more than fifty particular sects, of whom the most celebrated appear to have been the Basilidians, the Valentinians, the Marcionites, and, in a still later period, the Manichaeaens. Each of these sects could boast of its bishops and congregations, of its doctors and martyrs; and, instead of the Four Gospels adopted by the church, the heretics produced a multitude of histories, in which the actions and discourses of Christ and his apostles were adapted to their respective tenets.
