King James Version
And God spake all these words, saying,
I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
Thou shalt not kill.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's

Exellent post, Hrrmi. Jesus did not come to legislate from without but to change one person at a time from the inside out.

4GVN good friend
Purgatory is more a process than a place and is described in I Cor 3:11-15
"For other foundation no man can lay, but that which is laid; which is Christ Jesus. Now if any man build upon this foundation, gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay stubble: Every man's work shall be manifest; for the day of the Lord shall declare it, because it shall be revealed in fire; and the fire shall try every man's work, of what sort it is. If any man's work abide, which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work burn, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved, yet so as by fire."
If you are any man, be you a man in Christ, or not in Christ, your work shall be revealed as through fire....But be thankful, if you are in Christ, as you shall be saved....Unless you do every work perfectly in Christ it will be burned away as by fire(the Holy Spirit).
These verses were explained by the Fathers of the Church
•St. Ambrose (commentary on the text, and Sermo xx in Ps. cxvii),
•St. Jerome,(Comm. in Amos, c. iv),
•St. Augustine (Enarration on Psalm 37),
•St. Gregory (Dial., IV, xxxix), and
•Origen (Hom. vi in Exod.).

...God, of course, knew WWII Was going to happen, but He respects our free will and even allows evil to interact in our lives in order to bring out the greater good in humans.
according to Clay, God knew what was going to happen on Sept 11, 2001 when two loaded planes crashed headlong into the two world trade centre buildings killing over 3,000 innocent americans. On the same day God witnessed another plane crashing killing all in Pennsylvania, and yet another plane crashing into the Pentagon.
Clay says......God even allows evil to interact in our lives in order to bring out the greater good in humans.
THAT NEVER HAPPENED ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001. WHY CLAY?
Michael...actually, Clay is right on this one. God created man and gave him dominion over every living thing. If man does not protect his guard post, havoc results. God gave us instructions for living well. If you lie, cheat and steal, things are not going to go well. If our Policemen do not do their job, the thieves and liars will get by FOR A WHILE.
Billy Grahams daughter was asked the same sort of questions about the Columbine shooting, and hurricane Sandy. She said, "You've been telling God that you don't want Him in your schools...no prayer, no Bible reading.
And God is a gentleman...He's letting you have it your way."
Certain things are required of man that he might live in peace.
Honor God...keep His sabbath.
Honor one's parents.
Do not lie, cheat and steal.
Pray for those who rule over you (even the Babylonians).
The law is not made for good men...good men will be a law unto themselves. Good men are to enforce God's laws for the lawless man.
But i good men fail at their guard, evil ones will slip through.
Certain men today are threatening to kill the Big Satan (us), and the Little Satan (Israel). Our ruling government has declared that these men have a peaceable religion...even though they are cutting off the heads of their own women, and calling it 'honor killing'.
If someone doesn't wake up, blood will be shed, and IT WILL NOT BE GOD'S WILL, OR HIS FAULT.(Certainly He could prevent it...but He would have to make robots out of us...or just wipe us out.) He put us here to do a job, and to learn some things.
Don't blame God when you/we don't do OUR job that He is given us to do.

You're going pretty easy on yourself Kay. You said when your child is truly repentant they don't get punished. If your child does the same thing again, do you punish them then?
Read my post. I told you that CORRECTION is in order for continued offense.

2 Thessalonians 2:1313 But we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you [a]from the beginning for salvation [b]through sanctification [c]by the Spirit and faith in the truth.
Heb 12: 14 14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
Rom. 5:3–5 But if our unrighteousness [a]demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? The God who inflicts wrath is not unrighteous, is He?(I am speaking in human terms.)
Rev 21:27 27 and nothing unclean, and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those [a]whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

So tell me Robert,'How many of your sins did Jesus die for?" How many did He take upon Himself and carry to the cross. Was Jesus payment enough? Is there more to be paid? Can we in any way add to the sacrificial payment that Jesus made? And what did Jesus mean when He stated that "IT IS FINISHED?" If you want an honest dialog, please answer these questions.

Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary
22:34-40 An interpreter of the law asked our Lord a question, to try, not so much his knowledge, as his judgment. The love of God is the first and great commandment, and the sum of all the commands of the first table. Our love of God must be sincere, not in word and tongue only. All our love is too little to bestow upon him, therefore all the powers of the soul must be engaged for him, and carried out toward him. To love our neighbour as ourselves, is the second great commandment. There is a self-love which is corrupt, and the root of the greatest sins, and it must be put off and mortified; but there is a self-love which is the rule of the greatest duty: we must have a due concern for the welfare of our own souls and bodies. And we must love our neighbour as truly and sincerely as we love ourselves; in many cases we must deny ourselves for the good of others. By these two commandments let our hearts be formed as by a mould.

I'm sure I would have no trouble locating a good mental health practitioner in Sault Ste. Marie. When would you be available for an appointment?

Come on LTM. I told you what we believe, so you need to stop violating the 9th commandment to imply some stupid notion that we worship statues.
This is utterly ridiculous. I question whether or not you're actually serious about Christianity when you bare false witness like you do... Over and over and over again.
Catechism of the Catholic Church, section two:
2. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a graven image....

I could never consider such a religion who solely functions based on falsehoods they believe about another religion.

I try to keep lying, prideful, wrathful and envious ignorant bigots out of my businesses, they tend to offend my other customers who are decent and respectful. If you weren't such, I would gladly have you as a customer.

I could never get my mind around praying for the dead.
......If someone was bad, and sinful and now dead, what does praying do for them? Really? If 100 people pray for a dead soul is that better than 1 person praying for them?
If someone lived a good clean life and died, whats the point in praying for them?
When you pray for someone, how is that recorded? Does God read your mind that you are praying for them?
Its all rediculous!
makes no common sense......

Are your future sins already forgiven if you decide not to repent after you commit them?

You have nailed the progression, Confronting.To Spock I add a whole plethopa of "self help" books that were centered on me me me.A whole slew of psychologists followed with this slant and the people ate it up.With this self examination and sin fell by the wayside. It hurt your self esteem to talk about sin.So the emphasis was on how good I am and if do something wrong it is the fault of my childhood. Then we had the "I am a victim" movement-a victim of my prents, a victim of society, etc.
No personal accountability.And we see where this had led us.

have you noticed when she is caught in a lie, she uses her eyes or something else, as her excuse,
rather than admitting that she lied and was caught in her lies.
if I had to be that deceitful, I wouldnt be on this forum, since there are some that arent as ignorant as her and gif.still trying to be nice as you mentioned(sic).
oops, that is from that dead language, excuse me.lol

..Its my understanding, that Mary is a powerful powerful intercessor.
...Battle of the intercessors!
..Muslims believe with all their hearts, according to the Quar'an 39:44 that ALL intercessors belong to ALLAH exclusively.
Clay says Muslims are wrong! Muslims say Christians are wrong?
Michael says, who really gives a shite!(lol)
