Are you not aware that Satan has been winning souls ....to Satan...in the name of Christ.
Muslims also have a devil with the title Shaytan that they worship as REAL. And according to the Muslims he already has your soul in HIS GRASP simply because you are not of the Muslim faith.

If I were to put faith in the reality of Satan, it would only be fair of me to also put faith in the reality of Shaytan.

If YOU try being that fair, it will confuse your loyalties LIE ... RIGHT???

Wow! Liam YOU ARE QUOTING SCRIPTURE!

out of context, but still...
yeah. I don't think Catholics can handle the scriptures, so best they leave them alone ...

LOL! keep doing that and someone will accuse you of being one of them there ... "sola-scriptura" dudes ...
Catholics could quote scripture verses all day. So what? You'll reject the meaning... then when we leave, your fellow protestants will reject your rejection. Lol. You don't know what the Bible is, where it came from and how it should be used. Now go read Revelation with the other residents of the compound and use your orphan Annie secret decoder ring to figure out the real Christian teachings; God secretly hid it just for 20th century American SDA members.

Yeah yeah, only you have the real truth. Nobody can understand scripture but your leaders. What an insane approch to the Words of God and Christ.

Protestant-debater ... "Jesus and God are on my side of the debate. They Both LOVE me."

Catholic-debater ... "Jesus and God are on my side of the debate. They both LOVE me."

New Age Spiritual Leader ... "Jesus' spirit only thinks what 'I' think, so I'm certain that Jesus' spirit would not take into consideration what either one of you believe as being at all worthy of spirit's attention."

And you know nothing about me. While I have read that first century Christians were killed at the hands of others claiming to be Christian, it's been awhile and I cannot provide the link. I was wrong in calling those christians "catholic", therefore insulting all catholics. That was wrong.
However, you cannot deny the church has a bloody past.
History is filled with bloody conflicts. Humankind is bloody. The 20th century was the bloodiest era in human history. Our country is guilty of the massacre of 50 million innocent babies in just the last few decades. How will history judge the USA? How will people 1000 years from now judge you being a proud citizen of the USA?

Yes, the Catholic Church did some questionable things centuries ago, and we had a few scoundrel popes at the helm. Some questions to ponder; what part did your ancestors play in it? Are you a first generation Christian or are you a descendant? What Christian group were your descendants part of before the reformation? With no internet, no UN, no international cooperation to condemn atrocities, no way of combating aggressive religious movements (like jihadist Islam for example) other than by the sword, how would it be dealt with?

I forgot to ask; what source do you have to support your idea that Christians were killing other Christians in the first century? I've never seen any respectable scholar propose such a theory.

That's what I want to know. They wrote em and they quoted em ... so WHAT?

I write what some "might" refer to as poetry, and I quote the words, but although you might read the words, you might or might not agree on the meanings OF the words.

Example ...

Christian theology in a nutshell

"Dear Jesus ... though you ARE a Jew
I still love you, it is true
Now get busy and erase my sin
And be at heaven's gate to let me in
I am worthy of your love
I am ready for heaven above
I don't believe other Jews are saved
But you dear Jesus, it's you I crave
Now run your errands for me today
And get busy for my stay
When you will worship me forever
As your very worthy treasure

I watched your video, Liam.
Lame to say the least.
History written after the fact BY THE AGGRESSOR, is not truly history.
-
Case in point:
Consider American History for instance:
White man Murdered and tortured the Native Americans and called them Merciless Indian Savages.
That is what is written in the history books of this country.
It is even written in the Declaration of Independence that they are "Merciless Indian Savages."
-
But I ask you: Would someone in American history - who was protecting themselves and their property - be called a MERCILESS SAVAGE ... if his/her skin was white?
No.
-
History is written by the victor - which is usually the aggressor.
-
White man was the aggressor in American History; very little History is extant from the Native Americans.
-
Rome was the aggressor in Roman Catholic Church history 'or' "Christian" History; very little history is extant from True Christians.
-
go figure.


I gave you a nice video with the writings of Justin Martyr. You say "history written by the aggressor is not truly history". Well that sums up how the fundie brain operates.
Never mind, people, that Justin Martyr and many of his students were executed by the empire in 160 AD...... he was the aggressor according to guest!

Clement of Rome ( 3rd Bishop of Rome), studied under Peter and Paul; martyred by being tossed over the side of a ship. A normal Christian might be interested in what this man wrote.

Ignatius, Bishop of Antioch, studied under John; fed to the lions. Do you dismiss his writings because Ignatius was on the "winners" side.
Man, you are fascinating, guest.

There is no doubt that when the Puritans used the Bishop's Bible to manipulate the words and ultimately publish the KJV ... they lead the people astray in the idea that the words were inspired DIRECT from a HOLY GOD.

No doubt about it whatsoever.

Can't ya just picture the god that used to love the Jews NOW sitting in a Protestantized heaven and saying to the Puritans ... "I give you my WORD that what I now inspire you to write is the whole truth and nothing BUT the truth. You can count on ME.

The Jews couldn't count on me. The Gnostic-Christians, including the Catholics couldn't count on me, The Muslims can't count on me ... but you Puritan-male-Protestants will now be given MY undying devotion. YOU will be rewarded with the REAL universal truth. Just keep your minds open, and I will do the rest.... AMEN."

Religion is bullshit from one end to the other.

The Puritans believed that the one god inspired them to write ONLY universal truth. That was their PROMISE to other gullible humans that lapped up the arrogant mental vomit as being GENUINE manna from heaven.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>

In the second page of the King James version of the bible the words read as follows......

THE BIBLE

THIS BOOK REVEALS THE MIND OF GOD, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers.

ITS DOCTRINES ARE HOLY, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable.

READ IT AND BE WISE, believe it to be safe, and practise it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you.

The Catholics stole words from the Jews and the Pagan religions and re-vamped (as in vampire) them to their own dictates, and claimed that a god and a savior inspired them to write a new book titled "the HOLY BIBLE" which was supposed to be a BRAND NEW TESTAMENT from the same god that at one time loved only the Jews.

If you people don't wake-up ... the onus is on YOU.

You can SEE the lies, but you are so BUSY defending the lies that you continue to give your EGOS FULL REIGN!!!

Image of Jesus

Make of me what you will ... I can be a Catholic still
Or I can be faithful to Judaism too
You make the rules 'cause you are the fools
A Protestant I can be in this minute
Camouflage comes and goes with the finite
Dreamland is never far away
As glimmers of fantasy lead your way
Playtime is over but still you play
With the image of Jesus both night and day
Someday maybe you will learn
To stand in line and take your turn
In the present you don't want to be
Your desire is bliss for eternity

Universal truth has been awarded to me
Others will be lost if they dare to flee
From all the wonderful messages I can give to thee

Theologians come and go
Teaching, training, high and low
Their messages loud and clear
Ring the bells that saints are here

But time will tell that they were full
To the brim of naught but bull
I suggest the remedy
Is plain for those who want to see

I'm a Protestant it's true
But I can be a Catholic too
Islam might be my next choice
Or Buddhism, if I hear the voice
It matters not which one I choose
As the only god will not refuse
My devotion day by day
With that one god I'll always play

Meant (of course) as sardonic humor
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>>

I swing those scriptures to and fro
High-de-High and away I go

I demand I own the truth
You are just a useless sleuth

Judgment day is coming soon
I've been advised that you are doomed

I preached and preached that you would go free
From the devil's grasp if you listened to me

But you ignored my prophetic vision
You choose the path of lost derision

God knows best, but I know too
That God loves me and the Devil loves you
