Until you Roman Catholics stop your idolatry....and lying about it
I will proclaim the obvious.
Telling me you don't.... is like attempting to comvince me that the pope is not catholic.
I don't think you know how interesting your post is. Its not interesting in a good way though.
It really does explain who you are. Honestly, it saddens me more than you'll ever know. I can't explain it. If I try to, I'll end up making you feel bad and I don't want to go there.

Let me just say... I have never encountered the level of ignorance displayed here in all my life. But in the same breath, I see a man who truly has a conviction for his belief in Jesus Christ. That's why I don't understand how you can be this way towards the Bible.

That sounds very petty and arbitrary to me.
Please explain as only an expert can.
Thank you in advance.
Thank you for being respectful of my self proclaimed title as Expert.

Now as an Expert I will de-load your question before providing the logical conclusion based on facts of evidence available.

First when you postulate a Creator you need to be able to define the attributes such a Creator must possess.

Next you insert an arbitrary number of galaxies. Just an FYI, it would take you 32,000 years to count to a trillion, so unless you know someone that is over 32,000 years old, how would you be able to prove it?

Last I don't agree with your premise that caring for something is petty.

So you ready to engage in a rational exchange of ideas?

If YOU were all-knowing and all-powerful, and could make trillions of stars and planets in such a massive universe...

Then you made your greatest creation, HUMANS...containing trillions of cells...so that you would have someone with whom to fellowship...

You would care about every aspect of your creation. What we breathe, He provides. What we eat, He provides. EVERY need we have, He provides.
HE cares for us. Too bad He doesn't get the desired fellowship from some humans because they are TOO FULL OF THEMSELVES.

THERE IS ONLY ONE DOOR TO HEAVEN ...THAT IS JESUS...

Joh 10:1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

Joh 10:2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
Joh 10:3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

Joh 10:4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

Joh 10:5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

Joh 10:6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.

Joh 10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.


Joh 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

Joh 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Joh 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

Now that you mention idolatry ... rumor has it that Jehovah is not at all pleased that the first Christians, who were Catholic brought a savior into the minds of people to compete with his self.
After all. Jehovah is the Jewish LORD and Elohim is his father.
One god and two saviors is practising idolatry according to any "mythical" standards.

According to Billy Graham that nonsense about people having to be Christian is "old hat."
He's starting to make more sense as he prattles along with his theology.
As a Jew, Jesus would not be allowed in heaven.
Silly people!
Jesus is King of the Jews, Salvation therefore is from the Jews.
God called forth a nation, the Jewish nation, not a denomination.
All who receive Christ as Lord and savior are grafted into that true vine and are adopted into the family of God. which means we are adopted into the Jewish nation.
You are full of hate for God, and all that belongs to God,(JESUS BEING GOD IN THE FLESH) "JESUS IS IN HEAVEN"
You are spiritually dead, so to talk about the things of God with you is fruitless, there is no possible way you could understand .
I pray for your lose soul may God have mercy on you ,'IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.'

The Jews didn't need any new testament or another savior. They were already saved according to their own specialized myths.

On a serious note then: The Vatican has all of these parish priests exposed for their sexual crimes against innocent children they were entrusted to shepherd and train up in the ways of the Lord. The Vatican comes up with a 'brilliant' solution: 1) rather than removing the perpetrators of the sexual abuse, you simply move them to another parish and what? hope they don't get caught the next time. 2) to address damage control you erect billboards and sign s,and take out ads in newspapers telling former Catholics,'come back and we will welcome you with open arms', Come on!! How stupid do you think people really are? People don't want to attend churches were their family members may be at risk. Trust has been broken. Integrity has been stripped away. The veil of deception still remains. And what about the innocent lives of those children (some now adults) whom your priests committed those sexual crimes against? Did you think your 'hush money' to the victims will undo the grievous physical, emotional, social, financial and spiritual WOUNDS they must now bare (some for the rest of their lives)? Lastly, what about the gospel message? Don't you think that the Vatican's solutions and their priests actions have mocked God and His Word and branded those Catholics who are seriously embracing their belief and walk with the Lord? Not to mention those currently in seminary. How does the Vatican justify and rationalize this? How will priests now address their contributions to society's ills from their pulpits? These are grievous WOUNDS committed against God, man, local communities and society at large! They cannot be swept under the rug.

I stand corrected.

There number of galaxies in the observable universe is only about 100 billion.

http://www.physics.org/facts/sand-galaxies.as...

As for counting, a smart guy like you should know how that can be done with computers.

I am glad you are open to an exchange of rational ideas.

Please go back to my original question -- do you believe there is a Creator of the Universe who cares if humans are Protestant or Catholic or Muslim, or Hindu, or Jew?

If so why and based on what evidence?

Those that do not have the capability to know right from wrong have no accountability to what they can not understand...

Adam and Eve only became accountable for sin ...when they became knowledgeable to what sin was....This transpired when they received the knowledge of GOOD AND EVIL of good and evil, by disobeying God and ingesting the forbidden fruit...

Those that have all the mental facilities and disobey God are held accountable...They willfully do ... what God has forbidden...

Heb_10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

Heb 10:27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

Heb 10:28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:

Heb 10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

All people created theologies that would assure they were blessed with the most prestigious after-lives possible.

Most of them just don't want to share the blessings with those of other religious "persuasions."

Mythical greed is the name of the self-ingratiating game.

They will either avoid to answer these questions ... period ... or they will avoid them by posting more biblical scriptures that they cherry-pluck from their buy-bulls that they believe reinforce the idea that a JEW died on a cross to save Christians.
