I suggest that those who have everything to hide, have nothing WORTH giving to others.

I don't pretend to have answers to what remains mysteries.

I'm a fool ... but not THAT much of a fool.

I can't know what happens until it happens ... and that my concept of truth.

I always avoid prophesying beforehand, because it is a much better policy to prophesy after the event has already taken place.

Next you will admit in feigned humility that we are ALL sinners ... and then when I ask if you are an active sinner, why you are preaching at me how to not be a sinner ... you won't answer.
I've asked countless questions of you preachers and you ignore my questions again and again.
And that is because you have everything to HIDE.

<quoted text>YES you have a point,but remember this June it is not what is taught from the Scriptures,and is the reality of who the Lord Jesus is! In fact, it is all human nature in regards to division,and self will,pride and the doctrines of men. Much of what Christians bicker over is their practices,and how they perceive what Christ meant here and there. Not that they all are wrong in their thinking,but that they do not recognize each other with the respect Christ would give to all in the same circumstances.
Naturally I agree,but when we are dealing with men of God who are anointed, and what they say or said brings challenge to the Body of Christ,we all have the right to confront it,and to discuss what was said. I do not believe that there is salvation outside of my Lord,who gave His life as a ransom for many.Jesus is the only One who laid down His life and went to the Cross for all humanity.He is not a religious system,or organization.He is the Son of the Living Father,2nd Person of the Godhead,God Incarnate.There is no salvation in theologies that are formed by human reasoning.

It takes no human reasoning to conjure up what Jesus did,and what the Father accomplished as the only salvation for us all. We Christians have no other ism to follow or be part of,for we know that our passage to eternal life is through the Lord Jesus Christ,a PERSON,not a religion.

When I suggested that if a creator exists to have created non-human animals that must suffer it would be of the character of a monster ... some religious philosophers on this forum suggested that maybe non-human animals don't suffer from physical pain as do humans.

The lengths to which devotees will go to protect the image of the supposed creator as being loving and kind is astounding.

If non-human animals don't feel pain ... why do think that vets anesthetize them FOR pain before operating???

Idiots abound!

The men "anointed" EACH other as men of God.

The Dalai Lama was anointed by other men in the Buddhist colony to believe HE is the reincarnation of the previous dalai lama.

Anointing is another one of those poetic words that move devotees to believe they are chosen of one or another GOD.

Our Christian walk just isn't in a church there pal. We got to live it every day and try and be a light to sinners....I didn't say me and pusherman were gonna go out and party or commit sins together did I......He is my friend and I want to be a light to him. I don't want to condemn him or anyone else to hell cause I once was a sinner to and I sure wouldn't have wanted anyone to condemn me to hell. Well I am just glad that God is my judge and not man.
And you shine like the sun in my life..
I am very happy to know you and have you in my life.

You are begging me to trust your KJV scriptures that were passed off as literal universal truth by a king who wanted his name on the book in trade for giving in to the Puritans who simply wanted a new bible that they could call their own and no longer have to use a Catholic-approved bible.

It ain't gonna happen ... you parasite.

I will NOT believe that you are destined for utopian bliss while I will spend eternity in hell for not being a Protestant.

I've seen your type all my life ... and their words also held no power over me.

I live by the same FAITH that I preach ... Having just returned for the doctor this week ..He said..My health is excellent,
I am at present..... helping one of my sons build a room on his home where my wife and I will spend the rest of our days....it is 16x30...
I have food and shelter and my needs supplied...
In revival at the Church I pastor we are seeing souls being saved, healed blessed and encouraged.
God has kept his word for my wife and I over the 62 years of Marriage and pastoral work together
It is not my purpose to please any one here....but to confront them with the word of God
Some I admonish get insulted ...others react in other ways as you have noted...
but
Jesus said about His word...
Joh_12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
I pay no attention to the name callings and personal attacks....I just count them as occupational hazards.... I am whom God says I am...What others say don't faze me...
I don't give any one control over me...that I would react angerally to their remarks.
If I did then I would be out of control....
You are very out of control and react quite angrily whenever I remind you that you have no authority to infallibly interpret scripture and do not speak for God.

If anyone on this board needs to be "confrinted" with scripture, it certainly would be you, and I think your wife ought to be the one to do it.

I'm sorry I didn't respond to your post to me about the pope's sermon Dan, but I found your criticism to be petty and frankly a bit childish. If we Catholics can endure the countless televangelists and Internet protestant preachers who call themselves "prophets and apostles", I would hope someone as mature in the faith, as I assume you to be, would be able to look beyond a title given the pope by his own congregants.

You certainly have never attempted to confront me with scriptures.....You have only attack me personally and tried to convince me of your man made inventions, and conjured up conjecture.

Question ...
Why do you attempt to persuade men to follow a religion that cannot guarantee eternal life.

you religion is like your game of Bingo...It is a cruel game of Chance...

Are you referring to one that represents your religious cult (that you call a church)

I would not want one of your sodomize-rs to lay their filthy hands upon me.

I experience that as a child already....from a religious person ...a wolf/predator in sheep's

presenting himself as a sheep. I have had enough of that kind of religion,,,

.Your would have one of your perverts that you refuse defrock

or even admit exist.... filthy partakers of homosexuality smelling of cigars and reeking of wine .

You have some nerve attempting to present a religion that protects perverts in priest garbs.

while claiming to represent God's Holiness....

seriously the original

I had the same problem this morning....

I consider, your posts, quite becoming a person seeking a Christian life. And so I welcome you, in His Name.

Sharing your faith on this forum, will be quite challenging at times, if you extend your time on here.

Each has their own intentions, sometimes hard to ferret out. And it is a challenge at times to do so. Yet I find it a good way to express one's faith.

My one piece of advice is not to believe, or take at face value what everyone writes.

You're a slippery preacher who's very adept at redirection and smoke screens. The issue is, and will remain, YOUR authority to judge whether Catholic teaching is scriptural and true. In the years you've been here never once have you established your authority. Until you do, you are no more to me (or any other Christian) than a trained monkey who knows how to cut and paste verses on the Internet.

I don't need to confrint you with scripture passages showing you to be an ignorant bigot, who is probably only second to Preston when it comes to hypocrisy, being judgmental and bearing false witness. One would hope that after reading the bible for 60 years you would be able reflect on your own sins and deal with them and try to be more Christ like. It's sad that you may never come to realize this.

Jesus is not at all fussy! All ya have to do is believe in him and your sins become white as the driven snow.
