Not judging sweetheart...just stated the obvious. thanks
Do you call all guys "sweetheart?"

Maybe we've discovered the problem. Don't fight it. You need to be OK with how god made you.

Whatever, why not show us your god's love, as Jesus taught?

Why not? Because you are a pretend Christian.

Hope that helps. Now its time to grow in your faith, instead of attacking the majority of humanity who doubt you.

Ready, set, GROW!

It's not that simple.
Don't you have to choose the right god?
And isn't that based in large part on where you are born?
Or maybe any god will do. Is that it?
It's not that simple - yes it is

Don't you have to choose the right god?- there is one God

And isn't that based in large part on where you are born?- Stupid question...not worth responding

Or maybe any god will do. Is that it?- No

I keep trying to impress on these Christians that if they were born as Muslims, they would be praying to Allah.

Maybe they will allow it to by-pass their Christian indoctrination, but it will only occur when they are ready and willing to open their minds to new ways of perceiving.

I'm not sure. Here's some info about it:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower_of_Babel
i have read this site before it's of no help except it gives a detail of it's size 5000+ cubits high,have no idea how high that is in feet,or metric. but being that large there should be remnants left behind like the great pyramids,the sphinx,yet there is nothing,that's the thing about this theory, nothing to prove authenticity to the bible as being true. i really don't think it is.if you read the site you posted you'll find there is a similar story in the book of sumarian except names are different.

The "Free Will" fallacy.....

My son’s favorite color is “red”. As fine of a choice as any color and one could say my son “used his ‘free will’ to choose ‘red’”.

At a basic level I cannot argue – it was his choice and no one compelled him to do it.

At another level though one has to ask,“What made him choose the color ‘red’?” Did he “choose” to “choose” the color “red”? Did he magically decide before he was born that “red” was the color in his future life he’d pick as favorite and thus act in his “free will” in advance of his birth?

If so, back “heaven” or wherever his “soul” came from, what made him want to choose to choose “red” as his favorite color?

Rather confusing isn't it.

The point is, at some point back in his history, whether by God or by nature he was “wired” to think “red” was his favorite color.

He did not choose, and thus exercise his “free will”, it was somehow chosen for him. The small child had no real choice that “red” would by fate become his favorite color.

The concept of Free Will predates how we now know humans learn.

Thus, we have a real dilemma, because it makes no sense in today's world.

That's why if you Google this term: "The Fallacy of Free Will,” you will find many, many discussions.

If Jesus lives, he IS the great attacker of other people's faith. ONLY through him can people be saved. THAT is the Christian MOTTO!

They learned it from their study of the supposed master of division ... or more to the point ... the Catholic men who wrote the nonsense about a Jew named Jesus who favors only Catholicism.

Religion is bunk!

Just think...you are your friend June would never have felt attacked or judged if you never would've come on this forum but you did because you have nothing going on in the both of your lives. Hours and hours on a public forum arguing about the existence of God...pathetic lol...I feel sorry for the both of you.

A closed mind comforts them maybe.

Actually, there are many religious people whose faith is deep and strong. So they don't get angry if others disagree. They KNOW others will disagree.

But most here are posting in anger, because reality is stronger than their faith.

There are gods to serve all religious believers ... or there are no gods to serve anybody.

THAT is only fair.

This morning I felt a strong sensation that a dear friend from long ago had passed away, and about one minute later I received a call that he had died at 6:30 A.M this morning.
Some things are beyond explanation by rational means.
I see you completely dodged my assumption...but I am right eh June.lol

I'll bet he believes in God now if he didn't before.

Agreed!
The bottom line is: Mary is in Heaven because her Son is Jesus Christ- God made manifest. If anyone of us could spare our own Mothers from death and bring her to Heaven, we would. We can't do this of course, but certainly Jesus Christ can and did!
its tough for anyone to ignore the Marian apparitions in the last 150 yrs, as Mary attempts to bring people to her Son. What a great asset we have in our spiritual Mother Mary. "Woman, behold your son, son behold your Mother" wasn't just a saying directed towards John, it was directed towards all of us and is proven by her repeated intercession - especially in the 20th century.
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Salvation has nothing to do with who was your mother!!!!!

Since you have no idea how to obtain said Salvation...it is a safe bet you ain't saved!!!!!

I was joking about being excommunicated. Actually, I quit the church. I had a run in with a priest that refused to perform his sworn duties. He refused to baptize by infant son because my wife and I were not married by a priest. So to hell with them.
baptism is symbolic of our decision to be married/one with Christ. why were you trying to baptize an infant which couldn't possibly understand enough to make that decision?

when Jesus says upon this rock i'll build my church,where do you see that he was referring to the catholic church? and when he was talking to peter they were not even in Italy at the time,and again why would a Jew build a church of christian/pagan beliefs? and in a foreign country he's never been to? and wouldn't the true church be the first church ever built?......... Jesus, the aleged founder of Christianity, was the poorest of the poor.Roman Catholicism, which claims to be His church, is the richest of the rich, the wealthiest institution on earth. How come, that such an institution, ruling in the name of this same itinerant preacher, whose want was such that he had not even a pillow upon which to rest his head, is now so top-heavy with riches that she can rival - indeed, that she can put to shame - the combined might of the most redoubtable financial trusts, of the most potent industrial super-giants, and of the most prosperous global corporation of the world?
