as a fellow human, i'm honestly on your side, but also as a child of God, i'm responsible to be truthful.<quoted text>
The Catholic fathers wrote that the apostle Paul stated such and such and that Jesus stated such and such. It was their JOB to create illusions so that you would follow their illusions.
And the answer is "NO."
I've studied most religions of the world, and have concluded that they are all self-centered in their claims of knowing truth ... while they at same time dis every other religion as being based on lies and continually point at each other as being evil offender of the gods.
It's a whole lot of childish nonsense.
I will wait, and if there just happens to be a hereafter, I will take it as it comes. I will NOT entertain the notion that there is a heaven and a hell, as I believe "that" is man-created junk.
Thanks for asking, rather than suggesting off the cuff that I will go to hell, as occurs with so many Christians.
may i suggest one other nugget for your consideration?
i understand that rome tried to hijack Christianity and use it as a means to control the masses and still does through catholicism to this day and that's why i say what i do against it.
since God is mightier than any king or kingdom of this earth, He's also able to preserve His testimony to all peoples in every generation. He's proved this through His preservation of the Jewish nation and He's done it as well through the preservation of the Bible, in spite of all the attempts throughout the ages to compromise and destroy them.
don't be mistaken that you are making a choice in what you believe and i can say from my brief experience talkng with you, that your choice so far is not objective and without prejudice:-)
