Lol. What an imagination you have!
I can't debate your imagination.(Smile) But its not a pretty picture.
To tell you the truth, the reason I am smooth, is that I have had to have a lot of work done by the Lord.(Not to complain, but I need a good "lickin" by the Lord. I was a bit to headstrong, and always wanted things my way. The Lord chipped away, and smoothed out the rough spots. And is still working hard on me. I am still a bit to tough, to my liking as well.
In no way do I consider myself at the end of getting taken to the woodshed. In fact, when I go wrong, which is much to often, I get a bit anxious, if I am not looking to the woodshed first.
Theology limited

Maybe your arrogant attitude comes from the evil well of Jehovah ... NOT the holy well.

If you keep that picture in mind, your arrogance will frizzle to a frazzle of its own accord.

I suggest YOU do the work, and stop being so lazy as to believe a god should be expected to do the work for you.

I don't know about your first line.
How is it that your satan became so evil, and 1/3 of his angels revolted if there was no "evil" involved in the very creation of "heaven" if it was a perfect creation.
How is it that Noah and his family(god's choice to repopulate a new perfect world), after destroying ALL life on the planet, immediately became sinners.
The same with Lot and the preceding destruction.
Something wrong with this picture.
Is revelations going to be a repeat of the previous mistakes, or does your deity just like to annihilate humans?
Yeah something is wrong, man can't be God no matter how hard they try. God gave man everything, a beautiful planet to live on supplied all our needs, man wasn't happy they wanted to be like God or a god. remember free will.
Satan wasn't happy being the most beautiful angel, with all the power and love God gave Him he wanted to be above God, and because he became full of pride lead a revolt in Heaven.
Remember free will.
Pride God hates it, it was the first sin committed and it was in Heaven.
God doesn't make mistakes, if man had of listen to God when He said 'THOU SHALL NOT DO' we wouldn't be in this mess.

Is there something wrong with believing you know the MIND of a god???

If there IS, you best stop preaching that you know, because it might just be a bad habit.

NUMEROUS POPES DECLARE MARY SAVES SOULS

Leo XIII, Jucunda Semper, 1894: "When Mary offered herself completely to God together with her Son in the temple, she was already sharing with him the painful atonement on behalf of the human race ...(at the foot of cross) she willingly offered him up to the divine justice, dying with him in her heart, pierced by the sword of sorrow."

Pius X, Ad Diem Illum, 1904: "Owing to the union of suffering and purpose existing between Christ and Mary, she merited to become most worthily the reparatrix of the lost world, and for this reason, the dispenser of ALL favors which Jesus acquired for us by his death ...

Benedict XV, Inter Sodalicia, 1918: "To such extent did Mary suffer and almost die with her suffering and dying Son; to such extent did she surrender her maternal rights over her Son for : man's salvation .. that we may rightly say she redeemed the human race together with Christ."

Plus XI, 1935, in a prayer to close a jubilee, we find the first use of the word Co-redemptrix by a pope: "O Mother of love and mercy who, when thy sweetest Son was consummating the Redemption of the human race on in the altar of the cross, didst stand next to him suffering with him as a Coredemptrix."

Plus XII, in a radio broadcast in 1946: "Mary, for having been associated with the King of Martyrs in the ineffable work of human Redemption as Mother and co-operatrix, she remains forever associated with him, with an almost unlimited power, in the distribution of graces which flow from the Redemption."

John XXIII, Vatican II's Lumen Gentium, 1965.

Paul VI, Christi Matri. "The Church ... been accustomed to have recourse to that most ready intercessor, her Mother Mary ... For as St. Irenaeus says, she 'has become the cause of salvation for the whole human race"

John Paul II, Mother of the Redeemer, 1987.

Pius IX, Ubi Primum, 1849: "For God has committed to Mary the treasury of all good things, in order that everyone may know that THROUGH HER are obtained every hope, every grace, and ALL SALVATION. For this is his will, that we obtain everything through Mary."

Leo XIII, Supremi Apostolatus, 1883: "O Mary, the guardian of our peace and the dispensatrix of heavenly graces."

Plus X, Ad Diem Illum, 1904: "It was granted to the august Virgin to be together with her Only-begotten Son the most powerful Mediatrix and Conciliatrix of the whole world. So Christ is the source ... Mary, however, as St. Bernard justly remarks, is the channel, or she is the neck by which the Body is united to the Head... through which ALL spiritual gifts are communicated to his Body."

Benedict XV, In a decree on Joan of Are: "In every miracle we must recognize the mediation of Mary, through whom, according to God's will, every grace and blessing comes to us."

Plus XI, Miserentissimus Redemptor, 1928: "Confiding in her intercession with Jesus, "the one Mediator of God and man, who wished to associate his own Mother with himself as the advocate of sinners, as the dispenser and mediatrix of grace."

Plus XII, Superiore Anno, 1940: "As St. Bernard declares,'it is the will of God that we obtain favors through Mary, let everyone hasten to have recourse to Mary."

John XXIII, see Vatican II, Lumen Gentium.

Paul VI, see Lumen Gentium.

John Paul II, Dives in Misericordia, 1980, quoting Lumen Gentium, "In fact, by being assumed into heaven she has not laid aside the office of salvation but by the manifold intercession she continues to obtain for us the grace of eternal salvation."

I still say a hail mary at times. But now I think of it as asking a mother to speak to her son. I ask Jesus to talk to my mom if she is there. I pray she is.

I dont think its a wrong thing. We ask people to pray for us all the time. But As a child growing up..I equated Mary with her Son. And I dont think that is something she wanted

What I cannot understsnd is being judged for telling about My own childhood in a Catholic school. Thats silly imo

Mankind did NOT create "God's" heaven...God did, according to the book. All iniquity(sin) transgression has come from this very instance of corruption. There was NO other source from where it could have initiated except the creator.

Of "Lucifer was "perfect", he would have never become evil. I had to have been inherent in his entity.

At first it might seem that if God created all things, then evil must have been created by God. However, evil is not a “thing” like a rock or electricity. You cannot have a jar of evil. Evil has no existence of its own; it is really the absence of good. For example, holes are real but they only exist in something else. We call the absence of dirt a hole, but it cannot be separated from the dirt. So when God created, it is true that all He created was good. One of the good things God made was creatures who had the freedom to choose good. In order to have a real choice, God had to allow there to be something besides good to choose. So, God allowed these free angels and humans to choose good or reject good (evil). When a bad relationship exists between two good things we call that evil, but it does not become a “thing” that required God to create it.

Perhaps a further illustration will help. If a person is asked,“Does cold exist?” the answer would likely be “yes.” However, this is incorrect. Cold does not exist. Cold is the absence of heat. Similarly, darkness does not exist; it is the absence of light. Evil is the absence of good, or better, evil is the absence of God.
