If only these theological wizards would agree, I might have faith that I could follow any one of them and would be assured of finding eternal bliss.

But as their bickering shatters my faith in the idea that through their words I will find enlightenment, I perceive it's quite unlikely that a deity gave them wisdom.

The brahmins preach quite the dogma. I just wonder about their sermons claiming that others in their groups are "untouchable."

There's something quite unsettling about the issue.

It smacks too much about the theological teaching that being holy is the opposite of being evil.

Now it happens that inconsistencies and puzzles in science are like oxygen to my blood! My entire philosophy of science is predicated on the motto that anomalies are gateways to discovery.

Theology 101

"Well, now that my physical body has died, I'm here God. How are you going to judge me? Am I holy, or am I evil?"

"You're evil, so you must burn in hell."

"Don't I have any day in court?"

"NO ... I am God ... I have the final say."

"Then you're a bully. On earth I could hire a lawyer and at least have a chance of being set free."

"The devil is my lawyer, so shut up and get busy burning."

"Now I know why I should have been a modern Pagan. The goddess that loves every body would never have treated me this way."

"I am God, and I did away with the goddess years ago. She was nothing but a subservient female that got in my way."

"I want to go back to earth."

"You can't. I am the god of the Jews, and I rule all of the universe."

"PLEASE ... HAVE MERCY ... I DON'T WANT TO BURN FOR ETERNITY."

Nothing is allowed to register in their thinking but their religious indoctrinations.
It applies to those in all cults who believe they will be rewarded with bliss and ONLY bliss for behaving comparable to trained seals on earth.

Agreed. I'd take lonely too.

The big theological question for the Catholic church is:

... what happens to all the poor souls who were condemned to the old version of Hell? Do they get a transfer?

What does the catechism say?

who="Clay"
thank you.
I gotta admit, your following quote is troubling:
"Clay, repent and receive Christ by faith, and stop trying to please God with keeping certain rules and doing good works...you'll never make it"
I don't get it. That doesn't seem like something the Apostles would tell people. If that is your motto, its not good. I believe that mentality ushered in the problems our society has today. Everyone seems to boast they're 'saved' while hustling money and pimping hoes.
If you were to tell your niece that, and she turns from the Eucharist, you are going to be held responsible for that. This teaching of yours is against Jesus Christ. Its new and strange, Chuck.

Someone who belongs to a group known worldwide for molesting boys, I don't think you are in a position to accuse anyone of 'pimping hoes'.
We have an occasional wreck...but it's not wholesale, and most I've known are SAINTS.

Mt 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
blasphemy: vilification (especially against God):--blasphemy, evil speaking, railing.
vilification: a rude expression intended to offend or hurt;
For the sake of your soul, I pray that God will not view your vomit in the same light I do...
A delusion should at least be reasonable.

How is it not blasphemy by claiming the Creator of the Universe is somehow "jealous" and "envious" of its own creation?

If you had a fish tank, would you ever have reason to get jealous and envious of your fish?

Of course not. It is equally unreasonable to claim God get jealous and envious of us.

And compared to God, we humans are much, much lower than your fish.

Get it yet? Stop the blasphemy!

Jesus said

Mat_7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

______

Luk 13:22 And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.


Luk 13:23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,

Luk 13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

Luk 13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:

Luk 13:26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.

Luk 13:27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

Luk 13:28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

Luk 13:29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.

Luk 13:30 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.

~~~Jesus said......that you that claim to be first (the one truly apostate Church) will be last

God is not jealous OF us, but jealous FOR us. He objects to anything that wounds us or reduces us from the good plans He has for us.

Oh I doubt that once the sinners start burning that the devil would allow god to heal them back up again.

For instance when they cast Joan of arc into the fiery pits of hell, and all those centuries later canonized her as a saint, she would have been quite unrecognizable, and would scare the be-jeepers out Jehovah.

If the god is not jealous of you, that means he doesn't give a rat's ass whether or not you flirt with other gods or goddesses, as he has high self-esteem.

If you have personalized your god, wouldn't you want the god to be jealous of you???

After all, if the god said "Go ahead and believe in Allah, I don't care one way or the other" ... wouldn't you be confused and offended by such an attitude?

Yes my son takes the Eucharist and is Baptized. He is ten, and I'm not sure if he's sinned yet.

you told me to repent, come to Jesus and don't worry about following certain rules or doing good works to please God.. "you'll never make it".

Chuck, that sounds like it came straight from a demon. I would encourage you to re-think your position. Its wrong.

I will make it and I'll do my best to worship and please God.
