You didn't answer the question - yet again.

Why do you want people to die?

BTW - if you will look at the world we live in, there are many changes that are occurring - many of whcih are focussed on a change to how we perceive and think things should be.

So - for this "consciousness change" - and to be more encompassing in the world, people are leaving these old beliefs and realizing that as information is uncovered, the old beliefs are not as true as the followers think.

Are you saying that Jesus' Flesh profits nothing? Wasn't His Flesh sacrificed for us on the cross that we might be in heaven one day? Is our salvation "nothing"?
**********
Can't you see it? Jesus said that 'the flesh profits nothing'. Then He proceeded to lay His flesh down; requiring His Spirit to overcome the flesh. He then arose in the victorious, eternal spiritual body.
He was displaying what God plans for all of us if we will deny our selves (flesh) and follow Him, walking in the spirit. He will raise us up in a glorious body like His own. The flesh is much like the cocoon from which a butterfly emerges...just another stage in His creation process.

When Jesus said "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing", He meant that unless you recieve His words on a spiritual plane you can't accept them since your thinking is merely carnal...of the flesh. He meant that it takes faith to accept His teaching.

I can't believe you actually think Jesus' Flesh profits nothing.
And I can't believe you actually think that Jesus' Flesh was somehow at war with His Spirit.

You have wedding ceremonies in the pentecostal community no? Your preachers have certain requirements for the couples, i.e., he verifies they aren't married to someone else, they're sincere in their desire to wed, etc.?
Why do you believe a pentesoctal preacher can make certain determinations and the Catholic Church can't? And quit making assumptions as to someone's guilt before you know the real story. No one exonerated anyone, people are turned down in their anullment applications all the time.

The Pentecostal preacher does not consider a Catholic marriage to be invalid.

So I'll reask - "what do you mean by "unreasonable"? As how you posed the question:

What else that Christ promised us do you find "unreasonable"?

- first off, you'll have to post what you find to be "reasonable" and why - of the things that Jesus promised.

I make this statement, because he basically promised this:

"to know yourself is to know the kingdom of God", but yet you don't accept this very reasonable command.

You really aren't very clear in what you are trying to ask, or you are, but hoping others won't understand that you are actually avoiding or deliberately not posting all the details you have used to form your question.

You are starting to sound spurious.

Marge doesn't think it's possible for the bread and wine to be His flesh and blood. She said it's "unreasonable". Chuck likewise. He thinks Christ wasn't capable of clarity in His speech, so he wants to tell us what Christ REALLY meant when He said it was His body 6-8 times.
Maybe you should just move past the 'literal' words and attempt to understand their meanings.

Flesh is flesh. Jesus resisted His flesh to death. He said that if we would follow Him, we would 'deny self'(flesh). He did not struggle to 'save' His flesh.

I understand it just fine, thanks.
How is partaking of His flesh and blood somehow mutually exclusive from believing in Him?
It isn't.
If you believe in Him, I'd assume that you would take Him at His (oft-repeated) word that we are to partake in His body and blood for salvation. This isn't the case with protestants and I don't understand why that would be. It's "black letter scripture" and you all treat it as throwaway lines.
You construct an entire theology reliant upon one line in Timothy, and then turn around and disabuse the direct, repeated and emphatic words of Christ on this matter. Doesn't compute.
"How is partaking of His flesh and blood somehow mutually exclusive from believing in Him?

It isn't."

- How is accepting only part of his teachings, still considered as "the fullness of Jesus"?

It doesn't.

How do you not understand this Danny?
Do you think Jesus' time on the cross - was "murder", an "assisted suicide" or some other act?

One needs to realize what specific action is taking place because of this occurrence. If one does not represent it correctly, then one goes on believing in somethign that may not have really happened in the way they learned.

If one is to use the Gospel of Judas as an "inside process" to what actually happened - it actually appears the following occurred:

a. Jesus chooses his followers
b. Judas volunteers to do Jesus bidding
c. Jesus acknowledges Judas as "greatest of them all"
d. Judas completes his Master's bidding
e. Jesus is sent to the cross to die

"Assisted suicide" seems to fit this with the most plausibility.

But if we take the allegoric meaning of his "resurrection and the 40 days afterwards, Jesus shows the world that when he died, our Spirit still lived and if we as humans continue to love each other without hate, we too can achieve what he tried to show us.

Why don't you believe Jesus?

And you are sounding pedantic.

"Basically", I believe it's your burden to establish that Christ in fact promised or offered "to know yourself is to know the kingdom of God" as a prime directive or command. I would ask you to establish this premise first prior to demanding my response to your questions about it.

As to what I would find "reasonable" in context of my discourse with Marge, I'm sure that Marge finds it within reason that Christ can save her from her and the rest of mankind from sin, could change water into wine, could raise Lazarus from the dead, Himself be resurrected from the dead, is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent etc.

Given all this, she now proclaims (sans rationale) that it's "unreasonable" for Christians to believe that He can be fully present in the Eucharist, despite His repeated promise that He would be and His repeated instructions for us to partake in Him in that manner for our salvation.

After all the posts you have made - I get to agree with you on this one.

:o)

You've just explained the Self.

Why do you not believe Jesus when he tells us to know it, even when you plainly know that is what he is talking about?

A: Because you've chosen [Self] to accept what men have given you.

Men don't have the answers - but your Self does.

Yes, like Jesus said, "soon."

Some of the original Apostles must still be alive today too.

Sorry Charlie, if the Bible was given to us by our creator, yet we the creation can't agree on what the heck it means (see this board), then something is amiss.

Your belief is just as invalid.
