I can't think of a better way to die than to just be struck dead instantly.
Having spent a great deal of time as a volunteer in long-term-care facilities, I conclude that spending years with somebody or other wiping your bum and cleaning up your vomit, et cetera is not something I would wish on anybody.
But ... according to believers, it was all part of god's divine and wonderful plan.
YUCK!!!
No. But we all do it don't we?!
Why? Because we are folks, and we love folks-especially the ones we are closest to! We harbor no disrespect to gender nor sexual preference or age either when it comes down to our own. Love is Love...and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt, you understand what I am saying too! You are no different than I!

Perhaps you should revisit the account of Genesis then.
Your deity os a failure when you have any understanding of hindsight.

Try explaining what you mean. This is unclear...

At the risk of being called a rude arrogant individual who hates your deity and you I stated that you should read and contemplate the story of Genesis.
Your deity was happy with the creation of the angels and said it was good...your deity was happy with the creation of the world and mankind and it was good...yet 1/3 of heaven revolted against the arrogant authority of your deity and it's actions, and mankind was a total failure, and your deity has punished it from it's inception since it's creation. It is the "creator" who was omnipotent and new the result of it's creation who is to blame for the failure and atrocious recompense for "imperfection" who is to blame, not the unknowing ignorant "creation".
Your deity is a narcissistic torturer who deserves no respect nor admiration.(if the story could even be considered as true).

GOD is here with us, omnipresent and is real to all of us who choose to follow HIM..........

HE constantly reveals HIMSELF to those who seek HIM earnestly, and HIS son Jesus is anointed to make the presence of God (HIS FATHER) real to those who choose to to receive HIM in HIS True body and True Blood, in the eucharist, in and through His One True Apostolic Catholic Church.
If an when you prove your deity exists, then we may proceed to the other semantics.

So far you are on losing ground, How about you try to level the "playing field" first.
Don't try to spew rhetoric in the name of a deity you can not even prove exists...we will laugh at you as the joke you are......

It's proof enough for me as well as the other 1.168 Billion Catholics around the world, including all Catholic and Protestant Christians on this forum......... Sorry--but your rejection of God becomes "your loss"!!!!
It seems you prefer to live in fantasy.
I have to live in reality.
That is the "real" world.---it is called "life" or reality.

You may have a psychologist that will let you swim in your fantasy while I and others chip in to support you, but I am the one who allows and supports your fantasy,,,so don't forget that fact.

Me and others are the ones who keep the "real" world running while you and your fantasizers live in your dream world.
Some day you will have to pay up or die....personally, I don't care which you choose.

Ah yes, rhetoric! You my friend are "filled up to the top" with contradicting rhetoric, claiming that "He" will laugh at me when YOU don't even believe in "Him"....... When it comes to contradiction, confusion and chaos, you and June deserve each other!!!

Sorry to disappoint you but "that last laugh" is on you Black Thunder, not only because of your own "inability" to prove that God (doesn't) exist, but also because you chose to "reject" HIM and HIS gift of Salvation, faith and eternal life in Jesus Christ, in and through His One True Apostolic Catholic Church.

The title of the thread is that the RCC is the only true church, nithing more nothing less.
If some of you want to turn it into a proselytizing venture, you will be put in your place for it...that is what you are trying to do.
June you will put us in our place???

Dramatic. A touch maybe?

You know you will read about God here. And your book knowledge ..well I for one now,skip over ..it is nit relevant.

Your whole persona tell us you 're angry with the God you dint want to believe in.

But He still love s you and has so much patience..He is waiting with open arms for you to reach out to Him..

So you come around people who talk about Him.. that's,great..show a something may be calling you to be here.

The Matchless name of Our Saviuir Jesus Christ should be on your lips as you pray for peace from y our troubles

You are not going to answer me....and both of us know why...it says plain as day that every human being who has the capacity to known their actions or lack of are sins, are sinners.
And we both know that Christians led by the Holy Spirit know that the Word of God says Mary was a sinner...same as you and I...but Catholics ignore this Scripture and teach opposite to it.
This is not a Catholic and a Protestant both being led by the Holy Spirit and disagreeing on Scripture...It is a Catholic trashing the Word of God to follow a false teaching by his religion...and a Christian doing what Christians do...follow the teaching of Christ.
You want another??? How about Mary being taken unto wife by Joseph, per Scripture, and the idiotic teaching that she remained a virgin???!!!!
Ox

I have come to believe the things of Mary ..what difference does it make to your own belief..what they believe.

Do you really think A,CATHOLIC is going to change how they feel about her from words on a forum?

All of these, questions will be answered in heaven..as long as they believe that Salvation comes through Jesus Christ..They and you can ask Him and speak to His mother ..if it's that important to go find her and ask about her marital relations when you get to meet that dear saint.
My guess is ..you won't ask.

I'd rather ask her about the early life of her Son ..was,he the sane as other babies.

The rest has no bearing on eternity imo..as long as she is nit worshipped as Lord..

You said, quote, "The Catholic Bible has both the Old Testament and the New Testament; therefore, Abraham and Moses is part of our Catholic history." End quote.
Abraham and Moses are part of your Roman Catholic history? Really? Neither of these men ever heard the words "Roman Catholic".
You said, quote, "We only give respect and honor to Mary because Jesus gave respect and honor to His mother.....and Jesus is the person we imitate and follow." End quote.
In what verse of the Bible does Jesus call Mary "mother"?
<quoted text>
Your quote, "Abraham and Moses is part of our Roman Catholic history." End quote.
My response, "Abraham and Moses are part of your Roman Catholic history?"
Your response, "Neither Moses nor Abraham ever heard of the word "Christian" as well." End.
Brilliant. Totally brilliant! HA HA!!!!
So, answer the question. Were Abraham and Moses Roman Catholic's?
You said, quote, "We only give respect and honor to Mary because Jesus gave respect and honor to His mother.....and Jesus is the person we imitate and follow." End quote.
My response, "In what verse of the Bible does Jesus call Mary "mother"?" End
Your response, "Are you saying that Mary is NOT Jesus' mother? Are you saying that Christ broke the commandment that says "honor thy mother and thy father?"
Is your brain fully functional? Apparently not!
<quoted text>
First....Abraham and Moses ARE NOT Roman Catholic. Period.
Second....did Jesus ever call Mary mother or mom. Ever?
<quoted text>
Strange? Have you ever called your mother ...... mother? Or do you always call your mother......WOMAN? Just wondering.
Scary? Scary is your ignorance and worship of a woman called Mary.
<quoted text>
How many times in recorded history did Jesus call Mary .....mother?
Ah I see, you want me to admit that Jesus isn't documented calling His Mother 'Mother'. He's only documented calling her 'Woman'.(and 'Woman' was a highly respectable title in those days btw).
The Bible say that not everything Jesus said or did is recorded. Not to mention, simple logic tells us the same.
The first 30 yrs of Our Lords life is barely mentioned. That's something you Bible worshipers can't acknowledge..

Stupid stupid doctrine. A baby does not HAVE a soul. It becomes a soul when it takes its first breath.
1. Man is made from the dust of the earth and becomes a living soul with the breath of life from God which is the spirit.
2. Fallen man is “mortal.”
3. Fallen man does not have an “immortal soul.”
4. It is not possible to communicate with the dead.
5. Death is a painless, unconscious sleep.
6. Jesus Christ died, was buried, and then rose from the dead.
7. Jesus Christ will resurrect believers at His Second Coming.
Job 4:17 The Bible calls man mortal.
Revelation 16:3 "Every living soul died in the sea." Souls can die.
Ezekiel 18:4 God said,“The soul that sins, it shall die.” Again, the soul can die!
Exodus 1:5 “Seventy souls” went to Egypt. Souls are people.
Acts 2:41 “Three thousand souls” were baptized. Again, souls are people.
1 Peter 3:20 “Eight souls were saved” in Noah’s day. Again, souls are people.
1 Timothy 6:16 God “only has immortality.” Man is not immortal.
2 Timothy 1:10 “Immortality” comes only “through the gospel.”
Romans 2:7 Christians “seek for immortality.”
1 Corinthians 15:53 At the end,“this mortal” shall “put on immortality.”
This just proves that the RCC doctrine is a big bunch of falsehood.


So you do or do nit believe that The baby has a,soul in the womb.
He knit it there.

And if the poor things life is ended ..That soul is with Jesus.

Prove the deity exists, then we might actually have some reasonable discourse to discuss.
Until that happens, there is no point nor reason to carry on with the semantics, is there?
~~~

You just contend long enough that He does not exist.. you will stand before Him...Just as sure as you exist..you will face Him...

Heb_9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

It is THEN that you will rue the day that you have made the decision to deny Him...
