Even the polytheists who could fire gods and create new gods by their own wills taught those that they burned in the flames that it was in deed an honor to be sacrificed in such a manner to the gods.

Even little babies were sacrificed as honors to gods.

If that is sanity ... what is insanity?

Humans often want to believe the self is “all that.”

A snake that had its head chopped off managed to open its mouth and chomp on to its still-wiggling body.

Rumor has it that those who had their heads chopped off by the guillotine would move their eyes back and forth for a brief time after “losing their heads.”

Gory stuff HUH???

We humans don’t want to admit it but we like to fantasize about gore and suffering
.
If that were not true, humans in religion would never have compiled literature of burning hell-fires in hereafters, and in turn fantasize how others would burn in those flames.

We are ghouls … not servants of “holy” gods!

What Ray Charles saw in his fantasies was anybody's guess. But my guess is, he pictured his "future" self in heaven and others in hell.

The words "SAINT Augustine" would have been planted in his brain-cells ... BIG TIME.

Some admirers labeled him as "The Godfather of soul."
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>

Charles started to lose his sight at the age of five and went completely blind by the age of seven, apparently due to glaucoma. He attended school at the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind in St. Augustine from 1937 to 1945, where he developed his musical talent.

In this modern age of science, I suggest that it takes a wretched ghoul of a human to want to fantasize that others will go to eternal hell and self will be rewarded with eternal bliss.

There is no question about that in my mind.

Even as a kid, they couldn't feed me that crap, as I simply would NOT follow their LINES of such wretched teachings.

Admit it to your selves Catholics and Protestants. Picturing others suffering in hell THRILLS you.

If it didn't, you wouldn't put your faith where "in good conscience" it does NOT belong!!!

Unlike China or Japan, Catholicism in Korea was not introduced by a colonial or foreign power. Korean scholars learned at the beginning of the 17th century about the teachings of the Gospel, which were spreading in China, and undertook travels to the Jesuit missionaries there in order to study it.

They returned to their country to promote the faith, and it spread so quickly that only a few decades later, when a Chinese priest managed to enter the country, he found a well-established, though ostracized, group of Catholics numbering in the thousands.

My error. Sorry if it seemed otherwise.

I was just trying to, in the shortest way, link the idea of predestination, OSAS, fate, and destiny, into something intelligible. And have come to an impasse.

I think there is a link, or a set which overlaps between those who believe in predestination, and OSAS, but they may have nothing in common in other beliefs.

It is just that I think of predestination in rather negative terms, so it is rather difficult to write with objectivity on the subject. It gave rise to Calvinism in non-Catholic churches, and Jansenism in RCCs.

I resist but must use the hyperbole of Hitler and the Germans believing they were predestined by God to rule Europe/ the World. So I see it as a very slippery slope to believe in predestination by God.

In the end though it is God Who predestined us to be one in Jesus Christ, and through Him have everlasting life. It is for this reason that I think not of a person being predestined to be saved, but that they must conform, and be transformed into the image of Jesus before God, which is acceptable to God, and makes us one with Him. It remains a choice of the free-will given by God to each person.

I am sorry if this offends you.

Peace

I do not agree with your opinion at all and it clearly is a novelty to Christianity as it has been known. It would even be Novel by the reformer standards. Yes I have heard this theory you propose as an opinion largely from the Protestants of late who use to try to justify their divisions which they know well exist, but it defies all logic and what Christ said. God is not the author of confusion and division.

I read today an article about the Pope warning his own clergy of not being hypocrites when it comes to poverty(poverty, obedience, chastity). And the growing gap of the rich and poor, and those leading a Christian life to break the traditions which keep the poor oppressed by traditions. I applaud this. It is a recognition that something is wrong.

For you, this may not be a good opinion, that I have, to which you disagree. So let us reason, not from the view of a hierarchy, but rather that God deals with each person through Jesus Christ. In other words not from chaos, but rather the unity one has with other Christians. The need for some monolithic hierarchy is not needed, with perhaps the exception of keeping records of what transpires....

In a sense, then, the religious art, the landholdings, and all other things held by the RCC, this Pope has said is hypocrisy, and a tradition which men have kept, going against what simple Christianity demands.

It is just something for you to think on. It is perhaps quite counter to what and how you think....

The history of Christianity in Korea is unique in that it was not founded by Western missionaries. Korean intellectuals in the late 18th century heard about it through literature that had arrived in the country from China and developed their own community.

The Catholic Church has been growing rapidly in South Korea, doubling in the past 25 years to account for about 11% of the population of 50 million. About 100,000 Catholics are added every year.

I suggest that Christians and modern Pagans are jealous of each others supposed saviors.

Christians don't want to believe that Pagans can be saved. And Pagans don't want to believe that Christians are the only ones that can be saved.

Amazing selfishness in the guise of holiness.

I suggest that you keep knocking on your own door of stupidity.

What you believe has no appeal for me, just as what a Muslim or a Hindu, or a modern Pagan believes has no appeal for you.

The Jealousy of "MY savior is real and yours is false" is what drives the emotions in all those stuck in religion.

As a child I didn't WANT Jesus to love only those in the Protestant religion.

And my little Catholic friends didn't WANT Jesus to love only those in the Catholic religion.

So, we cut to the CHASE and refused to believe the religious preachers.

We were not jealous over the attention of a supposed savior.

Catholicism was introduced by Catholics missionaries.

Pope John Paul II kissed the Qur'an, while at the same time he had his missionaries preaching at Muslims that their religion of Islam was EVIL from the devil.

All religion teaches that we are born ill, and must learn through religion how to be well.

I suggest we should teach children that they are born whole and ARE well just as they are.
