You wouldn't be trying to contradict Scripture with Scripture, now would you, Marge?
Stop forming a conclusion and cherry picking verses out of context to fit said conclusion. Proof-texting is dishonest, Marge.
Not everyone who says Lord, Lord....
Even the demons believe.....
Doesn't the CC do the same thing?

On the face of it, the Bible is loaded with uncertain context and contradictory scripture. What is metaphor, what is not? This allows for "cherry picking," as you say.

This is undeniable fact, based on historical REALITY.

For example, BOTH SIDES in the American Civil War used the Bible to justify their cause.

Well-meaning, god-fearing men found in the Bible support for two completely opposite sides of a fundamental human rights issue.

Imagine how many fewer wars there would have been if all imaginary god communicated with better clarity?

He is denying God,not because he sees no proof of, but because he can't see him.The same applies to air-wind-electricity.....
Answer the question: Tell me...what was there before our universe came into existence...
Thats the dumbest statement I have heard all year! Congratulations Oxbow!!

We can prove air-wind-electricity. We can prove how they are created, and how they work. Yes we can't see the electricity running through the wires in the wall, but we ALL know its there. We can't see gravity, but we ALL know how it works.

Prove to me that God exists? Explain why all the previous Gods worshipped by your previous ancestors are not the right Gods but yours is?

Its all wishful thinking. wishful thinking!

Question for Catholics...

Flesh has blood....But flesh with its life, which is its blood, shall you not eat.

So....why does not the flesh of Christ, which you say you eat, have blood!!!!!

Why are you ignoring Scripture that teaches against cannibalism?????

Correection...

"... if all imaginary gods communicated..."

btw...

On which side was the CC during the American Civil War anyhow?

The Vatican was one of the only international entities to officially recognise the South.

Yet a short time before the war, the CC officially denounced slavery.

Religions look out for themselves first.

2000 BCE.....JETHRO: these dates are not written in stone (no pun intended),there could be something out there that has gone undiscovered,so picking one is not easy an not exact,plus as i said before the catholic church has to open it's archives so the world can find out what they are hiding,and try an find a clue as to what was in the books they burned.there actions dictate to me they don't want the truth known.because the catholic church is not the true church of jesus/god.Unless a passage is found where jesus states a name of his church (which he wouldn't)no one can claim with absolute certainty their church is the true church. and we still have the problem "does god truly exist?" can't prove that either with absolute certainty.
Try IFA.-10,000+ yrs ago according to archaeologists. It has been said that all religions probably are derived from this.

EXACTLY!

The bible is the book of confusion.

Thousands of christian beliefs ALL using the same holy bible, and inspired words, to prove their own conflicting doctrines.

To this day educated theologens around the world disagree with each other over terminology of bible meanings.

Educated religious translators argue with each other over Greek and Hebrew writings with no clear winner in sight.

Wouldn't an educated person like REGINA M. believe that God would make sure his words were crystal clear to all?

The fighting goes on today, in regards to the meanings of the bible.

Its been a catastrophic failure to educated mankind........and a crutch for those that live in fear.

It is called "transubstantiation" ! Jesus' REAL PRESENCE in the Eucharist.

...only in your mind and millions of others it is perceived this way.

In truth and honesty - it is a manufactured wafer and wine. But the illusion of the ritual is much more appealing and happier for you when you are participating.

I understand hojo, you need to follow others, instead of taking responsibility for your beliefs.

Your "anti-catholic" hate, hostility and vengeance is getting the "better of you" jethro8. You, my friend, are beginning to say and do "anything" in order to keep your "dillusions, heretical comments and vindictive slander "heated up" against Jesus Christ and His One (and only one PROVEN to be True) Apostolic Catholic Church. Sorry----but none of us Catholic, here on this forum as well as the 1,168 Billion Catholics around the world, "aren't buying ANYTHING that you are selling!! Again--you are wasting your time with your bogus "personal" attacks against Jesus Christ HIMSELF His One True CAtholic Church
Hojo - you are starting to sound like the guy who the so-called "Church" sends out to a person who they suspect is controlled by a demon, just before an exorcist is to take place.

Some think these are immortal..until the end.
Most likely fiction. But then Jesus said John could live however long He wanted Him to.
Never heard of that fable,
Yes i see what your saying and how it relates to those other verses you posted.

Jesus replied,“If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? As for you, follow me.” 23So the rumor spread among the community of believers that this disciple wouldn’t die. But that isn’t what Jesus said at all. He only said,“If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?”

EXACTLY!! That is "precisely" why I left my Protestant "bible only" Church, which divided on three different occasions over a 20 period, because they "couldn't agree" on bible interpretation. It is called "relative truth" Christianity (what each person decides for themselves is the truth"!(Start a new denomination). NO AUTHORITY, NO HEADSHIP, NO ABSOLUTE TRUTH! The Bible (in Pauls writings gives us the ABSOLUTE TRUTH, and THE AUTHORITY, in I Timothy 3:15, where Paul calls "THE CHURCH ( not the bible alone) as the Pillar, Pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH.---LTM --you can begin to look no further that over 400 years of the Protestant Reformation if you want to find the reasons for "church division", "disgreement of teaching", and "starting up a different denomination" ----Since the 16th century there are now over 42,000+ contradicting, inconsistent and conflicting Protestant bible only denominations of "relative truth" doctrines of belief----(each one)editorializing their own "personal (bible interpretation) opinions. There has, is and will continue to be only ONE TRUTH,--NOT---42,000+ conflicting "relative truths" of the word of God and that TRUTH is (as Paul says in I Timothy 3:15, in the One True Catholic Church established, formed and founded by Jesus Christ HIMSELF!!!
ROME/VATICAN and the BODY OF CHRIST are about as polar opposites as Hell is from Heaven. a casual review of history and current affairs back this up better than any arguments pro or con that could possibly be submitted here.

nuff said, end of discussion!
