You don't own words. As do you, I can also manipulate words to suit my desires.
I just don't do it in the guise of leading others to the one and only god ... that according to theology ... just happens to be a Jew.

You sure manipulate facts. Why not words?

Yes ... and he serves ONLY Jews ... not Catholics and Protestants.

Mythology is very silly ... but they all want to believe that one or another deity finds them irresistible.

makes no common sense!
I'm sure it doesn't to you, since you're too thick to understand that Christianity didn't/couldn't exist at the time of Christ's birth.

The rest of us aren't afflicted similarly.

Do you believe that another savior other than Jesus is coming in the future? Or do you believe that Jesus is the last one needed to come to earth with the absolute truth given to Catholics?
The Jews were the chosen few. Why would they have needed a savior ... especially one that would bar them from heaven unless they were Catholic?
Ask a Jew on why they believe they need a savior.

They believe they do and that he hasn't come yet.

Of course, genuine penitence is required. Didn't mention that, but didn't know I had to.
Who's "forcing" anything? You go to confession-they don't go to you.
You're equating forgiveness with absolution.
God forgives the sin.
The priest provides absolution (removes the penalty).
Nope!

Everybody is in a mad rush to be saved.

It's strange that no body wants to be lost ... and yet ... according to all of the Abrahamic theologians as they pointed outward at evil ... everybody who didn't believe as they believed were going to be lost to salvation.

That means everybody is lost.

I'll go for THAT theology ... as it creates a level playing field with no animosity involved.

If you are lost and I am lost ... then we're all in the same "boat." No hard feelings whatsoever.

Isn't it nice that we all get along so well?

You go for it. If you find one, I'd appreciate having the name of the person, so I could have a chat with him/her and found out what's missing.

Not very nice comments about 80 year old women who dedicated their entire lives to the church sacrificing having a loving husband and children only to be slammed by the very church they help build.
UNBELIEVABLE! "
You can't read, and I'm the one in "denial". Yeah.
Having been called out, of course you revert to the "Godwin's Law" of Catholic discussion, the sex scandal.
Dumbass. You were better off parroting June's posts. at least she remembers what she writes.
Its in all the news media around the world today........Pope Francis tells nuns around the world to not act like old maids or spinsters.

I know your single news source is always accurate and the rest of the world is wrong.

What are you going to say next? That the sex abuse scandals by catholic church leaders has not been going on for the past 17 centuries?(lol) Its all there right in your own church canon laws and papal documents and this clearly shows there is a perverted sub culture within the catholic clergy.

UNBELIEVABLE!.........thanks for reading my posts

I get cranked up when I have to run down rabbit holes.

Michael just lies, and I know that, but I can't believe I'd be subject to dissertations on theology from someone who doesn't know (or pretends not to know) that Judaism teaches about a messiah.

C'mon. I mean, really.

All these christianity stories of miracles, sons of god, eternal salvation, baptism, holy meal consisting of blood and flesh were all told by mythical gods 1,000 years before the Jesus story. Didn't you know that?.

...and you thought everything taught in christianity was first time UNIQUE..........you have been duped.

read the history of religions below..........and learn Dan, the core teachings of christianity are old hat.

You were wrong. Not the rest of the world. Just you.

Find me a wire service report where he calls them old maids vs. telling them not to act like old maids and we'll talk.

Dumbass. You were better off parroting June's posts. at least she remembers what she writes.
......The core of Christianity—the worship of a miracle working, walking, talking godman who brings salvation—was also the core of other ancient religions that began at least a thousand years before Jesus......HELLO!

.....What you'll learn is that ancient cultures around the Mediterranean shared standard ideas about Gods and their powers and place in the universe—and that Christianity simply adopted those ideas and applied them to Jesus and made him their own.

......Ancient people knew godmen did miracles. The first Christians thought Jesus was a godman, so they told stories about Jesus doing miracles. They even had Him doing the same miracles as the other godmen.(lol)

.....Heaven, hell, prophecy, daemon possession, sacrifice, initiation by baptism, communion with God through a holy meal, the Holy Spirit, monotheism, immortality of the soul, and many other "Christian" ideas all belonged to earlier, older Pagan faiths. They were simply part of ancient Mediterranean culture. Along with miracle working sons of God, born of a mortal woman, they were common elements of pre-Christian Pagan religion. Mithras had 'em. So did Dionysus, Attis, Osiris, and Orpheus. And more.

And they had them generations—centuries— before Jesus was a twinkle in Saint Paul's eye.

sorry for the bad news. The Jesus story was just a warmed over version of the many that came before.

......and you beleived everything about christianity and Jesus were UNIQUE.

....The only reason christianity carries on today is because of family-indoctrinated-tradition ..........very few people find the faith on their own. You become what mom and dad wants you to become........just like them.(lol)

To get one's mind around the idea that Jews would have believed they needed a savior, would be equivalent to Catholics not being satisfied that Jesus is THEIR savior and that the new testament implies that another savior is needed to serve ONLY protestants, barring the Catholics from salvation unless they then become Protestants.

Hahahahaha
