I don't love "Christians". Please correct your thinking.
I'm only here to help them see what honesty is all about. You too, since you fail to see this trait as one that can bring success.
So if you stick with this angle, you'll be safe in all future posting to me.
Are you suggesting then that you DON'T know the meaning of the word LOVE???

The Christians believe they love others when they preach how to avoid ending eternity with suffering in hell.

You apparently don't care enough to LOVE others in such a DEEP way.

I'm just spoofing you ... as you try to spoof others into believing you are indeed a divine spiritual leader.

I'm not here to preach at others how to love, because the truth is, I believe that word love ought to be debunked as anything resembling kindness.

"EWTN To Open West Coast Studio at Christ Cathedral Campus!
EWTN Global Catholic Network has begun construction of its first West Coast television production facility located on the campus of Christ Cathedral in the Diocese of Orange, California. EWTN hopes to begin using the studio to transmit news, televised Masses, and inspiring stories of faith to its global audience by the end of the year. A joint announcement of the new facility was made at the annual Napa Institute gathering in Napa, California on July 24 by EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw and the Most Rev. Kevin Vann, Bishop of Orange.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange acquired the former Crystal Cathedral in November 2011 and took possession of the property in September 2013. Shortly after moving onto the campus, the Diocese began an extensive renovation to restore the 34-acre campus and its seven buildings to their former magnificence - upgrading them to modern earthquake and energy efficiency standards in order to accommodate the unique needs of a large and vibrant parish, Diocesan Pastoral Office and Catholic school. As part of the renovations of the campus, the Diocese has worked to develop the capacity to share its events, liturgical celebrations, news and other topics of interest with audiences throughout Southern California and the world.

“As we transform the Christ Cathedral campus into a dynamic and inspirational center of Catholic worship and outreach, we are blessed to partner with EWTN to share our community’s energy and faithful witness with the world. EWTN’s partnership will profoundly benefit our Church, enabling us to share the love of Christ with millions across the world in multiple languages from the Cathedral campus, here in Orange County,” said the Most Rev. Kevin Vann, Bishop of Orange."

Faith and hope that swelled in your brain-cells in the hope and faith that others will see that you are a divine spiritual leader.

The word love is another MATTER, that I suggest should be held up to the light as being nothing more than selfish desires.

It's possible that the confusion of religious hyperbole has caused many people to depend on alcohol or pot or hard drugs such as cocaine, in order to find some mental relief from the worry of burning in hells taught by the theologians.
Theologians were paid to preach and write more and more junk. So as time went by, most everything human was labeled as being a SIN ... and offensive to GOD!
JUNKOLOGY!!!
I don't believe that a creator exists to give a rat's ass one way or the other.

To clarify your comments: I DO NOT hate the Bible only Church that I was connected with for over 35 years--despite what you might think....In fact--I am thankful for being raised in my bible only Church because the more that I studied sacred scripture (along with researching and studying over 2000 years of Church History, the more I begin to come to the knowledge and realize the TRUTH of The TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ and that HE was the one who initiated, formed and authenticated ONLY ONE TRUE (Universal) Church and it was Catholic!!!
In addition, my family still attend that bible only Church in California and whenever on a visit, I will attend Church with them----however---always making sure that it does not interfere with worshipping Jesus Christ at both daily and Sunday Mass.......The main difference is that the Catholic Church is the ONLY CHURCH that possesses the Fullness of the Faith and the Fullness of the TRUTH in Jesus Christ (only in and through) HIS One TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church---which open up to the Fullness in "growing in the faith and Salvation of Our Lord...

hojo won't move on unless he changes his brain-cells for new ones ... because he has dedicated his self to preaching that those who are not Catholic will be rejected by Jesus and God to eternal suffering in hell.

hojo is dutiful and seems certain that he has tremendous faith in his own ability to spot universal truth. Enough faith "in fact" to move mountains.

I feel nothing but empathy for those priests.

Had my father stayed in the Catholic religion, he might have also ended up with a nervous breakdown. However, when a priest told my father that those who were not Catholic would burn in hell ... my father left the church and it's horrible memories of molestation and lies to go elsewhere for more lies fed to him by the men of the Rosicrucian Order, who in turn taught him that reincarnation was the ANSWER to the "secret" knowledge.

My poor father was a good man and a kind man, without all of that nonsense confusing him and constantly milking him of his hard-earned money.

I suggest you would believe that if hojo joined your Protestant faith it would be a definite step forward for HIM ... RIGHT???

However hojo would believe that to step back into his Protestant faith would be a step backward for him.

Do you get the picture???

Concept of the word "improvement" is located in the "individual" mentality of the religious devotee.

I haven't formed an opinion with regards to speculative physics. I simply don't know enough in the matter.
Here's the thing, though. Energy organizes into matter, matter organizes further as it cools, properties come out depending on atomic structure, which becomes more organized when combined into molecules, and so on. The physics of the universe is both unpredictable (what you're calling chaotic) and organized via whatever rules of math it follows.
Hidingfromyou

Peace

I can understand having not formed an opinion on the chaotic(multiverse) or symmetric universe.

But in a sense doesn't this hamper the ability of a materialist in whatever they do? They do not know if there is beauty or chaos?

Whereas a person that has decided one way or the other operates more efficiently, being unimpeded by doubt.....

Living a holistic lifestyle, or single-mindedness, seems overall better to me. At the faith level, there is no need to be dualistic in one's mind.

Still I understand the lack of knowledge to form an opinion on the nature of the universe is rather widely held by all.

Having been caught for so many years under the hypnotic spell of religion, I can relate to the confusion far more than an Atheist who never went through the confusion by being bombarded from all sides with conflicting religious dogmas.

Children have no defense when the parents and others they adore and respect teach them that a creator definitely exists and in turn has all the power to accept or reject human behavior, and to in turn reward or punish that behavior.

But I survived it and I overcame it on my own terms.

FREE at last to be ME ... human and whole ... just as I am.

You never fooled me. You are here because you believe you are a divine leader of spirits and can assure others that they are safe in your care with your gnowledge of all things spiritual.

It's easy enough to imagine any scenario to protect one's believe in deities. You can simply imagine them out of the universe - demonstrating your claim has some merit is entirely a different matter.
I rejected your description of faith and we never came to an agreement there. For me, faith is the thoughtless, blind acceptance of belief. Hence, your faith remains unchanged in the face of evidence from contemporary science and despite lack of evidence on your part.
Faith, hope and love are observable phenomena.
Hidingfromyou

Back at you..., some atheists have blind acceptance of belief as well.

Contemporary science does not prove nor disprove God. It is your willingness to accept as a supposition(though you may think otherwise, but some might call it blindly) God does not exist which limits a potential within yourself that you reject.

If you were a bit softer, perhaps agnostic in your atheist view, then what?
