The rush to baptism is what connects the child to a belief bigger than the person. Without it a person might never enter the Church and that would be a shame. It seems to me that if more people had faith in God through the Church teaching our world would be much better.
Jesus said the kingdom of God is within.( Individual )
Not a label to be marketed and sold to people looking for forgiveness.
W/out forgiving ones self, he could never know the kingdom of God.
Jesus spoke out against men like the pope.
Who is he to " sell " you forgiveness? God?
The Bible seems to me, to be a theoretical book with the morality of man Interjected to explain bad occurrences.
I wonder sometimes what is meant by this

Corinthians 2 : 13- 15

For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of
Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light, Therefore it is not
surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end
will be according to their deeds.

I think that is pretty clear don't you?

I like you, have a few family members who are catholic. Also some very good friend. They never promote their religion as the only true church.
It's almost hard to believe that Catholics here say we must be Catholic to be saved.
Yet YOU believe that (for example) Muslims must convert to your Protestant religion, as otherwise they won't saved by Jesus and God to Christian heaven ... which by the way is the worst place in the universe a Muslim would ever dream of going in his absolute worst nightmares.

And the Muslims want you to convert to Islam and spend eternity in Islamic paradise with 72 Islamic virgins at your beck and call.

I suggest that all of you believe you are wishing the best on others ... while according to each other, are wishing the WORST on others.

Hilarious comedy that even Shakespeare would probably envy.

Differences between the New World Translation and other translations.
Missing books. In their Bibles, the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches include books known by some as the Apocrypha. However, those books were not accepted into the Jewish canon, and it is noteworthy that the Bible says that the Jews were the ones who were “entrusted with the sacred pronouncements of God.”(Romans 3:1, 2)
Thus, the New World Translation and many other modern Bible translations rightly exclude the books of the Apocrypha.

All religion literature (regardless of which language) lacks any semblance of common sense.

According to those in the right-fighting religions ... the gods wanted only human-animals to fight over who should be saved and who should be rejected in a supposed hereafter.

That teaching, that caught on comparable to a house on fire, made humans far more dumbed down than other animals.

Example of plagiarizing:
A writer decides that he wants to create an Internet website to generate ad revenue. Instead of writing his own articles, he visits twenty other websites that have articles on the topic in which he is interested. He copies each of the articles, changes the titles and the authors' names to his name and posts the articles on his own website.
Not guilty...
Of course you are guilty. You use Martin Luther's ideas that he stole from the Catholic bible and you don't attach his name to anything you post.

And furthermore when you post scriptures from the KJV, you are using literature that was stolen from the Catholic's bible ... mucked about by men of the Puritan FAITH and authorized by King James I. Yet you don't sign their names on any of that literature that you claim WITH PRIDE was authorized in the first decree by Jesus and GOD.

You just take it for granted that because it's a bible you can plagiarize and at the same time be rewarded with HOLY blessings from above.

You are in deed a religious plagiarizer!!!

According to Christians Jewish apostles were the hierarchy that prophesized that Jesus was coming to earth to save the ones that believed in him. That would be the Christians.

The Christians taught that men of Judaism were Jesus' hierarchy.

How silly ... that devout Jews would be HAPPY about Jesus coming to earth to be a traitor to Judaism.

If you study the line-age (lineage) of religion on down through the ages, you will spot the lies in your own religion ... which is what occurred in my life.

It is true that the Catholic Church grew out of compromise with the pagans of ancient Rome. That is the beauty of this blessed Church. It opens its arms to new ideas
Then it should open its arms to the idea that all others are loved in equal portions by the god in the sky.

Yet its doors are closed to THAT idea.

Like them.
Mom and Dad want a child raised up in their own images.

I was fortunate that my dad had one belief and my mom another ... so I was conditioned to believe that the human ritual of baptism was not a necessity or a bonus to my supposed salvation.

Religious rituals are no-doubt fun for those who place high value on them ... but for those who didn't have them engrained in their psyches from childhood ... they have no meaning whatsoever.

You would do well to allow the thought in your mind that Protestant-Christians don't own the universe ... not should they dictate it's supposed religious meaning to those in other religions.

seems odd, you being catholic..
Did the HOLY SPIRIT of Jesus instruct you to post those words???

You found "spiritual" religion in prison, but I suggest "spiritual" religion keeps you in bondage in another sort of prison.

You are certain that Jesus and you are on the same wave-length, flying high above those in religion.

How arrogant to believe that you think the same as a savior of human-souls.

How VERY arrogant.

Let me clarify, I agree with you. Others on this forum do not share your belief.
God has His part in the salvation of man......

Man has his part to play in his salvation.......

WHY???

Because in the New Testament, Jesus has His COMMANDS that we MUST follow......

That's why it is called OBEDIENT FAITH.......

No, its not true Marge. I think you know that by now. The Jews still do not have a collective canon of Scripture. Most do, but that didn't come til after Christianity. If you two don't believe me, get a phone book, call a Jewish Rabbi, and he'll explain it to you.
The development of the Bible reveals that Protestants were wrong on removing 7 Books that God put in their. This fact destroys your entire theology.

Since the NT was translated from the Greek and Aramaic, I began looking into the meaning of Peter and rock. The word for Peter being Petros and rock is petra. They are both seperate words with separate meanings. It helped in understanding the conversation Jesus was having with Peter.

"The word petros for Peter in the Greek is in the masculine gender and the word petra for the rock is in the feminine gender. Petros and petra are two distinct words in the Greek. Petros is a shifting, rolling, or insecure stone, while petra is a solid, immov­able rock. In the English language the gender is not specified by the article".

From Strong's Concordance
http://biblehub.com/greek/4074.htm

4074 Pétros (a masculine noun)– properly, a stone (pebble), such as a small rock found along a pathway. 4074 /Pétros ("small stone") then stands in contrast to 4073 /pétra ("cliff, boulder," Abbott-Smith).

"4074 (Pétros) is an isolated rock and 4073 (pétra) is a cliff" (TDNT, 3, 100). "4074 (Pétros) always means a stone ... such as a man may throw,... versus 4073 (pétra), a projecting rock, cliff" (S. Zodhiates, Dict)

Will trace Barjona back later. No time now. I just love this stuff. It gives a better understanding of what Jesus was saying.
