Both Catholic and Protestant churches are FALSE. Like it or not, the Catholic religion (Sun Paganism) has roots in every protestant church around. Because they flooded and influenced all churches back during the roman empire times. Churches are intentional and unintentionally misleading people away from GOD. Not to Him. Some may have it right that Salvation is only found through a personal union between YOU and GOD. But they have it wrong as to HOW.

Churches are all for one thing. MONEY. There is always some vain character trying to start a church. Draw people in. It becomes a social club every time. You cannot find GOD this way. Jesus didn't do it. And He did not promote this concept a bit. The disciples all relied on LITERALLY receiving the SPIRIT of GOD to guide them through inspiration. And THAT is what Jesus was telling us to do as well. Not run to a church and expect a human preacher to save us all. THAT IS WRONG.

The protestant churches are the only kind of institutionalized churches that mean well. But fall very short still. The Catholic church just flat out MEANS TO DECEIVE YOU. They have you thinking you are following Christianity. But in action, you are fulfilling the requirements of their Sun religion. And all the sun symbols in the church and throughout culture are proof. Research and study it if you dont believe it. What's worth more? Taking the time to learn the TRUTH? Or foolishly following what a church tell you?

Just remember there are two paths to Heaven The REAL ONE, and the FALSE ONE. Jesus described the difference in detail. The false one will be easy and popular. The real one will be neither. Which path are you on? I guarantee that MANY of you are on the wrong one. So you better stop and think about what you are actually doing with your life. Because the ONLY WAY you are going to get on the right path is to NOT follow your own will. Because our will ALWAYS leads us into temptation and riches. Our desires hunger for those things. GOD places no value on anything in this world except necessities. And the world is making our bellies FAT. We are spoiled and undeserving. And only until we let go of all of that and clean the slate, we will NEVER know GOD 1 single percent.

Just go ahead and keep going the way you are going. You will be SHOCKED when you die.

Your traditions have done away with Christ's communion and replaced it with a ritual your
holy fathers named the eucharist. Your popes even claim there is only salvation through their church and their eucharist. The traditions the apostles gave to us do not include one eating His flesh and the priests drink His blood. That is the tradition of men that go directly against Christ.
How can anyone take Christ's communion any other way then Christ commanded and still call it Christ's? How does that happen?
John 6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
John 6:55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
John 6:56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
1 Corinthians 11:25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
You sir are WRONG. The Scriptures are NOT referring to sacraments. He is referring to receiving the Spirit of Christ within us. Rituals do NOTHING but make us look STUPID. It is through the surrendering of our own will. The full humbling of our lives and ourselves that we receive the Spirit. Hence, we "eateth and drinketh the flesh and blood of Christ". We give up this world. We take all the junk we bought and the things we hourde and get rid of them. We change our focus. We must walk away from the things we love in this world. If we have a loved one that keeps us from Christ, we hate them and walk away. We lose our love for them. Not in the worldly sense. But the point is that we remove ourselves from the world and the things in it that keep our focus wrong.

If you have to sell your BIG house and many cars, you do it. If you have to quit a busy job. You do it. If you have to live in poverty to focus on GOD, you do it. You PROVE to GOD that you have tossed out your own will. Then He will fill you with His. Literally. Most people do not understand this. Because we are living in times where the masses have been brainwashed to follow false religions. Christ was NEVER about religion.

The bible is an allegory. That is why Christianity is mixed with what you would deem paganism.
jesus/gesus is the anti-Christ and the Christian god was stripped of his power. He is the devil.

For those who actually "read" God's (true and perfect) Word (The Holy Bible), we have read all of the signs that God gives us in order to discern from where the end times antichrist/beast will come out of.--- i.e. All roads lead to Rome.

because malachi is allegorical for two separate beings, the fallen masculine always planting himself in front of the divine feminine (true creator), two separate languages are used to interpret the true meaning of malachi.

ayerveda is a lifestyle of maintain purity of the temple,(physical body) and mind/soul.

mala, in ayerveda, means feces or more indepth what is left after all that is good has been stripped away.(as the ox has been stripped of ability to create life)

chi represents the dragon, Living spirit and the savioress Kuan Yin.
Kuan Yin is often depicted riding upon the back of the dragon or as sitting upon the moon.

Rome, the home of the roman catholic church, true wh--e of Babylon, represents all of Christianity.

6 pointed star of david
or
6 pointed star of the divider (david meaning divider)

66 books of the divider

666 the balance of king Solomon's books at the end of each year.

6 the number of the devil
6 divided is 3
the trinity

The Roman Catholic Church, clergy, know that the bible is allegory.
Other denominations coming later were due to the corruption of perception due to saul/devil and the anti/Christ, gesus. the lineage of david/line of division

if it is allegory, it is not the word of any god, but the word of man...

but then we all really knew that already, didn't we..

this false god was disproven long ago, just as all the previous man made gods were before it...

Jesus has laid out the most difficult moral standards to ever uphold. Just because you atheists don't or can't do it, do not try and insult his teachings and those committed to them.
no, like your god telling you you can own slaves, that you should kill those who don't believe as you do in his name (that is where the muslims terrorists, who worship the same proven false god as you get the idea, you know...), to subjugate women...

do you need more?

jesus clearly stated he was not a son of any god, that would have been heretical to him...his brother and the rest of his ministry after his death even sent missionaries to paul's congregation to tell them of this heresy they were being taught...

you are in the cult of paul a man who never even met jesus... a cult wholly created by man...as they all are.

but i digress do you renounce the god of the bible and these horrid morals he taught?

No, he did not. Gesus did not forbid slavery.
When a man and woman get married the woman's hand is always held by the groom by His left.
This is symbolic of the sacred marriage between the divine feminine and masculine. However, the Divine Feminine's former androgynous partner was stripped of power because he became corrupted.
Jesus damns all those on his left to hell, which is a continuation of the Christian gods command that females never be free.
because Christians know longer know about the androgynous state of the creator they believe they are worshipping the true god and that the true creator is a fallen angel. Plus, they don't realize that the true creator is Feminine in nature.
Love your enemies turn the other cheek, ect came from the Divine Feminine.

Eve translated from Hebrew (Havvah) means Living One and Mother of All Living Things.
Yahovah or Jehovah, god of ruin and destruction.
the Hebrew name of Havvah indicates that she is the alpha and omega , the beginning and the end, never changing.

Wow, what an ignorant and deluded fool.
Firstly, the law of the OT does not in any way apply as a binding covenant for those who've received Christ. Also, the slavery in the Bible is not an institution based on racial stratification but rather a mode of bondage to repay debts to those you owe.
Prove that Christians are commanded to kill those who don't believe, deluded fool. Jesus clearly commanded us to merely wipe the dust off of our feet to those who reject the gospel.
Jesus not only confirmed that he is the son of God, but that he is God himself incarnate in the world to save the world of its sins.
Paul doesn't contradict Jesus's message, so how are those who've received Christ in the camp of a "cult"?
so you denounce the god of the bible...good to know...some christian you are...

again you show you know nothing of the bible...it clearly states that if your slaves have children, you OWN those kids...

you need to read your own cult book instead of going of websites that tell you waht to say or what you learned in sunday school as a small child...

jesus wasn'tr the son of your god, as your god has been proven false...and even he didn't say he was the son of god! you are in a cult you don't even know the first thing about...(like most of you cult freaks...)

seriously, little girl you need to learn at least the basics of your cult's theology before you even attempt to discuss this in public...

so far all you have succeeded in doing in denouncing the god of the bible (as you should as a moral human) and proving your the mindless cult fodder they all dream of...your suicide vest awaits you...

What divides Catholics and Protestants?

1) the right to a divorce.
2) the right to birth control

Real simple.

If Catholics want more true, honest followers, they will let people have these rights without faking or lying about it.

So what's it gonna be Pope?

You want honest converts and followers or are you happy with those born into your faith and they blatantly disregard two of your most obvious "rules"?

What a scam!
