thank you.
I gotta admit, your following quote is troubling:
"Clay, repent and receive Christ by faith, and stop trying to please God with keeping certain rules and doing good works...you'll never make it"
I don't get it. That doesn't seem like something the Apostles would tell people. If that is your motto, its not good. I believe that mentality ushered in the problems our society has today. Everyone seems to boast they're 'saved' while hustling money and pimping hoes.
If you were to tell your niece that, and she turns from the Eucharist, you are going to be held responsible for that. This teaching of yours is against Jesus Christ. Its new and strange, Chuck.
**********
You don't understand him, Clay. Salvation is a GIFT from God. Jesus said that if we BELIEVE on Him, we SHALL be saved.(Greek word interpreted 'shall' actually means 'must' or 'will have to be'.
In other words, if you believe Him, you 'will have to' be given life. Someone on here said the other day, that one will not know until after death, whether they will enter heaven. John wrote that, "these things are written (so) that YOU MAY KNOW..."
Anyone can tell you ABOUT the gift...but ONLY He 'gives' it. No one else can do/afford it.

What is "believing"?

Does belief to you mean a simple mental acknowledgment that He is who He says He is?

Or is it possible that truly believing in Him, as Jesus Himself said (and the apostles), means hearing Him and actually DOING what He says?

When an artist paints a picture, the last touches are often "brilliant", and very small but "absolutely" necessary. The New Age movement offers different views of a picture, but lacks in "absoluteness", and the picture is unfinished.
There is harmony, contrast, color, may be more complex, or simple, informed, or uninformed, in New Age, and so it appeals to a broad spectrum of minds and spirits as one "enters" the picture.
Sorry if my opinion offends?
BTW - you never specifically stated what is being thrown out of any "New Age" philosophies.

You claim there is, but only gave a metaphoric analogy of something.

Please provide specific subjects that New Age philosophy "throws out".

Thanks!

Your opinion doesn't offend, but is an incomplete thought. It actually sounds biased toward only your belief. But in fact, there is at least one flaw to this thinking.
If we were not all biased to our own beliefs, we wouldn't BE on a forum defending our own beliefs.

From my perception the "naked" truth is that I don't know even if absolute truth exists.

Maybe we all exist in a holographic universe of our own mental creation ... or not.

YES!!!! It is the same "repeated TRUTH" over and over and over again! For us Catholic and Jesus Christs One True Church, The TRUTH doesn't change!......... It has, is and will continue to remain the same TRUTH as it has for over 2000 years!!..... For "bible only Protestants"(since the Reformation)---"relative truth" editorializing the interpretation of the bible with each persons opinion" is what keeps you "fundies" bickering, arguing, and fighting among yourselves!!..... Each one "has their own (relative truth) where each person decides for themselves is the truth)....... That is why for Catholics, there is nothing to discuss, nothing to debate, nothing to deliberate! The TRUTH for us Catholics (never changes) Daily Mass, the bible (OT & NT) readings, the eucharist, the 7 Sacraments,(baptism), Confession, the Adoration Prayer Chapel and the PROVEN HISTORICAL AND BIBLICAL TRUTH of Jesus Christ and His One (and only one) TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church (the bride of Christ)

You are still a very devout Christian, and from my perception, you are here to defend your specialized version of Christianity.

From what you glean from biblical words, do you believe that the god that serves Christian appetites, is offended by homosexuality?

1John 5:13 - St. John is certain not that his readers will make it to heaven, but that they are filled with the living presence of Christ. His readers are assured that they *possess* Christ, not that they will persevere in His grace until the end. If you go on reading the rest of the chapter you will see that is what he is talking about. This is a prime example of the DANGERS of taking scripture out of context and forcing it to fit one's conclusion.
1Cor
8He will keep you strong to the end so that you will be free from all blame on the day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns. 9God will do this, for he is faithful to do what he says, and he has invited you into partnership with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Many Christians believe that miracles come their way. But from what I've observed, they don't believe that the one and only god would bless a Muslim with a miracle.
For those who want to see, there is a huge amount of greed by the Christians in that picture.
And the reverse is the same for the Muslims. They seem certain that the one god only blesses them with miracles.
no he only does miracles for the protestants,or was that baptists? no maybe Methodist? or was it Mormons?....anyone have gods cell phone number so i can call him and straighten out this mess?

Keep in mind that the supposed creator of your worship (if he existed) would be the same creator that created the Grapple tree.

If that doesn't repulse you ... nothing will.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>

The Grapple Tree (Harpagophytum procumbens) of South Africa produces a fearsome fruit called the “Devil’s Claw” which has been known to kill a lion. The fruit is covered in fierce hooks, which latch on to passing animals. In trying to shake the fruit off, the animal disperses the seeds but at the same time, the hooks sink deeper into the creature’s flesh. If the animal touches the fruit with its mouth, the fruit will attach itself to the animal’s jaw, inflicting great pain and preventing it from eating. Antelopes are usually the victims.

You my friend--are "oblivious to the truth"!!
It is called "transubstantiation" ! Jesus' REAL PRESENCE in the Eucharist. You need to interpret the Scriptures as the Early Church Fathers (correctly interpreted) them in 397 AD and as the Early Christians "lived out" their person faith and Salvation in Our Lords REAL PRESENCE (the TRUE BODY and BLOOD of Jesus HIMSELF!

Back in my old hiking/climbing days, some of my fellow hikers were eager to get to the "top", others were casual, but for me, I always got distracted about half-way up admiring the beauty, and lagged behind.
When at the top of the mountain, I would mention this, or that, which I saw on the way up, and the others always looked puzzled. I would look out over the vista and then we would go down. And I would still lag behind.
There's a lot to be learned from nature- if you take the time... and when you look-see, and when you hear-listen.

"transubstantiation" is either a lie or you are a cannibal and a vampire.

Either way you are a pathetic excuse for a human being.

There is nothing in the Bible to support your insane cult of the dead.
Your religion is a disgrace to the True God and the teachings of Jesus.
