When your god sits a Muslim on his right side, are you going to correct god and tell him that is YOUR place to spend eternity???
If you think "I" am wicked, just wait until you try ordering your god around up there in the sky. You ain't seen nothin yet!

You are witnessing the "bashing bible" in action. The bible isn't in itself, to blame... it is the entity that utilizes it.

I don't believe that any religion can guarantee I will be rewarded with eternal bliss in an afterlife ... so it's nothing personal when I won't join your specific cult.
I don't believe that those in any religion can know the future ... so it's nothing personal when I don't believe that your cult knows the future.
I do understand however that you take every remark that doesn't agree with your religious beliefs personally, because you are certain that I have offended your god.
Well, when you stop offending other people's supposed gods, I will stop offending yours ... and if and when THAT miracle occurs, there will be total silence on all religious FRONTS.

I agree. Except not everyone has to agree with me, nor do I think you offend, or am I personally offended by your beliefs.(Of course, most on here do not have experiences in common.)

Thats a done deal with me.... Kind of a pre-requisite.

You don't mean--"SMOKEY CAMP" do you?
Who knows what a god that created evil will do to these right-fighters when they arrive in the hereafter for their "expected" rewards?

It makes me wonder if Jehovah agrees with all of them, or none of them, or some of them?

Rumor has it that Jehovah can be a REAL hot-head ... and it seems he did at least at one time seem to favor only those who practiced Judaism!

I'm not surprised at your reply, but I never said everyone who is not in His Church, nor am I choosing for God. That's what you are reading into it. This is one reason why I don't like communicating on these message boards.
I don't believe that at all. I don't think you are intelligent enough to not be caught up in your lies...that's more likely the reason you have suffered any disdain.

You're most welcome! Robert was very generous in his response saying that those personal attacks against him give him an opportunity to practice virtue. He holds no animosity against his accusers. Nevertheless, I know he believes in God and am not afraid to take his back when he's being attacked. Too many people don't want to get involved, but I don't go for that nonsense. That's why there's so much evil around, everybody's afraid to speak up.

<quoted text>no he didn't as I said peter never was in Rome, study the writings of Paul and you'll see peters name is not there as far as any church goes.
I agree...and I can give you all the verses in the bible that can prove that as a fact if you know the history timeline of the church.
Either the bible is lying, or the CC is...simple as that.
Most of it is from Paul's own writings.

From my perspective, a creator that would allow suffering in his creation could never be trusted, as the suffering would BE for the creator's bullying enjoyment.

"But I was assured if I worshipped you, you would reward me with eternal bliss."

"And you believed those lies??? You will now get what I choose to give you ... not what you demand of ME. I am NOT your play-thing as you thought was the truth when you were on earth. How do you like those "apples?"

Yes. I was aware of this as well.
I think this thread is tame, because on others, there are people wildly out of control, and this one is "tame", and they(seeking to be out of control) get a certain rise out of the newcomers, but old-timers keep their cool. And so the thread stays pretty calm when "they" leave.
Its sort of like learning who you can talk with, without some sort of serious tirade....So those interested in sharing, do so with a certain caution.
Unfortunately, I didn't practice that certain caution. Now I know better. There's only one reason for any non-Catholic to be on this thread...and it has nothing to do with sharing. They have an agenda, a goal that they will accomplish no matter how they have to do it. They have no boundaries and will say anything. God help the person who objects.
Over the years I've seen Catholics literally run off this thread by these vicious animals. They lied about them, took their words out of context, hounded them mercilessly. They want free reign and when they don't get it they make the worst sinner look like a saint in comparison. You can't tell me about this bunch, I've seen too much here. Maybe it is tamer, but only just. I fear there are a lot of Napoleon complexes at work here, lol. You can always tell.

The proof, I think, is overwhelming, especially in the case of 2 Peter. I've often posted a list I compiled in about half an hour of qualified authors who hold 2 Peter bogus or even go so far as to say it is all but universally held so in at least critical scholarship. I won't post it again. But here's the permalink:

As for Peter instructing someone to write it, that is a common apology. But the letter is widely recognized as dating deep into the 2nd century, which forbids that, as does its heavy reliance -- it's copying wholesale -- from Jude, also a 2nd century pseudograph.
But I get that it doesn't matter to some folks. The community to which you belong and the comfort you derive from your faith outweighs problems like this.
I think you are absolutely correct...most noteworthy, is that you have taken the time to research it extensively. However, your effort is unappreciated by the "induced" subjugates.

The entities that wrote the bible and claimed it was truth from a god ARE to blame.

From my perception theologians of all religions were and are truth-less wonders.

I always go back to your Catholic belief of how you will be saved and others will go to hell.

I don't respect your belief, nor do I respect your slovenly laziness of staying in such a belief.

So I hope you have that straight in your own mind. I am NOT in any way, shape or form on YOUR SIDE!

I don't pretend to respect beliefs that I don't respect.

What God lacks is convictions- stability of character. He ought to be a Presbyterian or a Catholic or something- not try to be everything.

The same is true in Pagan traditions. Wicca etc. use "ritual for the same reason. The "wizard" has little or no need for the practice of ritual.

Words have the ability to stir and manipulate emotions.

Concerning what we choose to believe, the onus is on us.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >

The following is one part Thomas Moore’s poem…..”Farewell but Whenever”, also called “The Scent of the Roses.”

Let fate do her worst, there are relics of joy
Bright dreams of the past which she cannot destroy;
That come in the night-time of sorrow and care
And bring back the features that joy used to wear.
Long, long be my heart with such memories filled
As the vase in which roses have once been distilled.
You may break, you may shatter the vase if you will,
But the scent of the roses will hang ‘round it still.

"Dusty" is one of the most hateful religionists I have ever encountered.
Regina is not all that far behind in the race.
Neither can discuss anything in a rational manner.
There are two Jesuit idiots in Georgia that also are in contention for first prize in the "winners circle"... and a couple of lesser contenders in Cali. that must surely be registered in the race.

The Roman Catholics live and base their whole whole religious existence upon a lie...
They condemn others, rave and rant about the importance of their
Eucharist ....THEY TEACH THAT COMMUNION KEEPS THEM SAVED....YET THEY
IN THEIR HALF HEART ED FACADE TAKE A BLOODLESS COMMUNION...
THERE IA NO SUCH THING AS A PART TIME CHRISTIAN...AND MORE THAN THERE IS
A PART TIME PREGNANCY...
THEY ARE PROXY CHRISTIANS..
the pope is between them and Jesus...
then comes the saints
then Mary stands in there some where..as mediator...
their protocol chain is not scriptural
The Bible says
1Ti_2:5 For there is one God, and
one mediator between God and men,
the man Christ Jesus;
They claim to be the Bride of Christ yet they have a whole line of little gods between them and Him...that they bow before in their mass.
It's called spiritual adultery and fornication...
Being an ex Catholic of 40 years, I can verificate (new word)the absolute truth in your words.

I witnessed it, in person, I lived it, and at that time in my life, I have been known to physically attack anyone who argued against this false religion to which I was a member of....but never again!!!!
