I agree with your posts here.
I'm not expecting any one to believe me, and my personal experience, although I do I have witness to the occurrance who was with me.
And of course, you should beleive what works for you, or for your own comfort zone.
And I do know what you mena on getting fooled. I think we've all been down that road before.
IMO - Christianity misuses this "comfort zone" that people fall into, for their own bidding - to acquire followers.
I would bet that if those men who chose the "Christian" beliefs and what they are, hadn't done that, many of what men and women beleive today, probably would not be the same as in the past, and they would probably be doing their own thing. And you probably wouldn't even have the many kinds of religion that exist in society.
If religion was based on truth, people would all agree, and there would only be one belief.

Gee, looks like all the non-Christians who think the saints are dead are badly mistaken, quite wrong, badly deceived, and greatly err. Oh, well, their loss.

Jesus said unto her, "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he dies, yet shall he live. And whosoever lives and believes in me shall never die." (John 11:25-26)
Note that?

I am the RESURRECTION !!!!

If you are resurrected you PUT ON immortality.
Whoever is resurrected in the FIRST resurrection puts on immortality. Until then, they sleep.

KJV. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Sincere Catholics often bow down before a statue of a SAINT and devoutly pray, even though the saint is DEAD. But the Roman Church doesn’t teach that they’re dead.

Even though the idea that man’s soul is naturally immortal is a PAGAN one. All the ancient pagan religions, without exception had the idea that the soul, or man’s essential being, was immortal.

That non-biblical concept, inherited from Babylon was a common thread running through them all. In Egypt for instance, the pyramids were great monuments, great houses for the dead to hold their immortal spirits.

But the heathen idea of man’s soul being naturally immortal comes from Egypt and Babylon and Greece, not the Bible whose teaching directly contradicts it.

See such verses as 1 Timothy 6:15-16, Ezekiel 18:4, 20, Ecclesiastes 9:5, Psalm 6:5; 13:3; 115:17, John 11:11-14, Ephesians 5:14 etc.

So true, marge.
Catholics teach that some are in Heaven without having been resurrected as these verses teach us.

Children of the RESURRECTION.

Somehow that word is meaningless to Catholics.

But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him.

Some refer to it as the rapture, but since the word rapture is not in the Bible...use the description ...Catching Away..

You can cite all the loop holes that have been presented by your Religious system...

But

The word of God has set the standard which must be adhered to..

Jesus said

Joh_14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

If you think Peter is the giver of life and you attempt to come by him..

JESUS SAID

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.

“The use of temples, and these dedicated to particular saints, and ornamented on occasions with branches of trees; incense, lamps, and candles; votive offerings on recovery from illness; holy water; asylums; holydays and seasons, use of calendars, processions, blessings on the fields; sacerdotal vestments, the tonsure, the ring in marriage, turning to the East, images at a later date, perhaps the ecclesiastical chant, and the Kyrie Eleison are all of pagan origin, and sanctified by their adoption into the Church.”— An Essay on The Development of the Christian Doctrine John Henry “Cardinal Newman” p.373.

“It has often been charged… that Catholicism is overlaid with many pagan incrustations. Catholicism is ready to accept that accusation and even to make it her boast… the great god Pan is not really dead, he is baptized”— The Story of Catholicism p 37.

“It is interesting to note how often our Church has availed herself of practices which were in common use among pagans … Thus it is true, in a certain sense, that some Catholic rites and ceremonies are a reproduction of those of pagan creeds…”—(The Externals of the Catholic Church, Her Government, Ceremonies, Festivals, Sacramentals and Devotions, by John F. Sullivan, p 156, published by P.J. Kennedy, NY, 1942).

In early 2012, the Roman Catholic Church embarked on a campaign inviting the huge number of members who had left the church over the years to "come home". This invitation is based in large part on their false claim that the 2000 year history of the Roman Catholic Church has been one, long, holy picnic. You can listen to a few excerpts of them making these false claims of theirs on their Catholicscomehome.org site in a separate window.
For several years now, I have been puzzled as to why so many otherwise well-informed Roman Catholics seem incapable of appreciating how contrary to the teaching and example of Jesus the behavior of their church has been over the centuries, and how false their claim is to faithfully represent Jesus. But then it came to me, as I watched the news of a Nazi war criminal being extradited from the U.S.A., where he had been living for years, back to Europe to stand trial at long last for horrible crimes against humanity. This man had children who were crying out against their father's extradition. To them this man was a wonderful father. His war crimes meant nothing to them. I see the same phenomenon happening with Roman Catholics. Although some of them may be able to view the actual history of their church objectively, for a great many others, the only way they can view their popes and bishops is as "Holy Fathers" and "successors of the apostles".
But how can Roman Catholics insist on viewing their church as truthfully representing the teaching and example of Jesus Christ when - instead of setting an example of loving others, it has a many centuries old record of doing the very opposite, i.e. promoting contempt for all kinds of people ?
7 ) Today it's homosexuals and females who dare to exercise control over their own bodies.

6 ) Before them, it was the Jews,(which led to the Nazi Holocaust, in a country that was 98% "Christian").

5 ) Before them, it was "heathen savages".

4 ) Before them, it was women accused of being "witches".

3 ) Before them, it was questioning Catholics (or "heretics") for whom the Church created the inquisition.

2 ) Before them, it was Moslems, which inspired its military "crusades".

1 ) Before them, it was the "schismatics i.e. the Eastern Orthodox Christians.

Who gave you the authority to teach that the whore of Bablylon is the Roman Catholic Church? Do you tell your students that the Catholic Church at Rome, put the Book of Revelation in the Bible? Of course not. They would obviously question why you said you're the authority to teach them.

What do you tell your students when they ask, "Tiger, how come Jesus never commands that a Christian Bible be established to rule His Ministry?" and 'Why do you teach that the Bible is the pillar and bulwark of Christianity, when the Apostle Paul says its the Church?"

Shut up kids, I am the authority to determine that!!

Repent Tiger before you're held into account for adding to the Book of Revelation. I mean this with love and not as an insult.
