Dumb animals ... HUH!!!
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>

From the book—Banting—A biography, by Michael Bliss.

Banting saw one of the rare sights of the Great War; a mass of cavalry galloping to the attack. They soon turned and retreated in the face of German fire. Banting watched as their leader, now riding behind his men, was thrown headlong from his horse by a shell that seemed to explode directly under them. The horse got to its feet, started galloping away, then stopped and returned to its rider. The horse stood perfectly still, while he slowly climbed into the saddle. When he grasped the reign, the horse galloped off.“I stood and watched him go……hurdling shell holes, ditches and the debris of war.” He always remembered, and was fascinated by the intelligence the animal had shown.

You are absolutely correct! But scripture also says that "the Word was made flesh" and you must ask yourself the original Word of God (the ten commandments)was in the ARC of the Covenant and the New Covenant "Word of God" was in Mary's womb, not yours not mine no anyone else's. So, the only logical conclusion is that, NO, we are not all ARCs of the covenant because we do not, did not and never have ever held the "Word of GOD" who "became flesh in our wombs.
That's funny.
We have the word thanks to Mary. We never heard it before.
Is that more catechism?

Where are you finding info that God actually said: thousands,shalt not EAT of it.
Where are you finding info that the serpent touch the tree...
You are quite ignorant. The "serpent" IS the [Keeper] of the tree and all medical and scientific information. The serpent/snake/feathered serpent[ENKI] is the chief "engineer" in charge of all such information. He is the one who "ordered" Adumus to existance. Your deity is an assumed deity from the bowels of "EL"...A lessor god to Anshar and even Any of Enki. Enlil-Ekki's brother Is your deity by the assumed name of YHWH or El Shaddai.
Why do you think your "deity" was so jealous of other gods? He was extremely jealous of Enki and Marduk...that's why!
Who do you think it was that said "let us create him in our own image"?
It was Enki and Ninhursag!---not your make believe trinity!

Most devout believers are too frightened to put that thought out into the universe, as my guess is, they really don't want to die, just in case their "god" WILL change his mind and fry them in hell rather than the ones at which they keep pointing.
After all ... Jehovah ... the one and only god ... according to theology ... created good AND evil.
It keeps them on tenterHOOKS.

Anything to avoid the questions.
No god ever appointed such a failure as the Roman Catholic Church.
Just a simple look at history proves that much.
TRUE Gospel?
Question: Where in the TRUE Gospel is Mary the queen of Heaven?
Where in the TRUE Gospel is Mary sinless?
Where in the TRUE Gospel say that Mary ascended into Heaven in bodily form? The Romanist church just made up this stuff over the years. The last was in the 1950s I believe.
Like God waited almost 2000 years to tell you Romanists that Mary flew up to Heaven in human form?
Your Pope prays to Mary. Mary is now another savior. And the Gospels are rendered almost meaningless.
No wonder Romanism is such a failure after so many centuries.
True Gospel? Not when you keep making stuff up to take the focus off of God and put it on yourselves and your self-created gods and saints.
So how has that worked out for what was once the most powerful institution on the planet? Is the power and prestige growing, or is Romanism today a laughing stock?
Tell me about your church.

Surely you can do better than these heretics, eh?

The absolute authenticated TRUTH has, is and will CONTINUE to be as it has for over 2000 years) in the faith and salvation of Jesus Christ and His One (and only one) True Apostolic Catholic Church..... Our Lord "confirms it" in Matthew 16:13-21 and TRUE Sacred Church History "re-affirms it" over and over again by the (overwhelming vast majority) of accredited Apologistic Historian authors and writers (both Catholic and Protestant)........ In the historical writings of the biographical lives of the Saints and in the Church Historical manuscripts of Apostolic Succession since the beginning of the Church, Jesus began HIS CHURCH by appointing St Peter (as the 1st Bishop)as HIS "earthly representative" to lead HIS CHURCH, until HE (Jesus)returns for the second time!!!...... You see June, it is all historically documented---with "nothing to argue about"!!!!
YES!
It is quite hysterically documented!

From the book … Black and Free … by Tom Skinner … comes the following.
The young Negro argued that while the white man would teach the Negro to love his neighbor, to love God, to have patience, to be humble, he would teach him only while he had his foot on the black man’s neck. He would preach to him about love while denying him the right to a decent job. He urged the Negro to obey God’s word while raping his women. He was telling him to love God and country although his home was burning, his family shot and his property destroyed.
Sounds like typical Mississippi rhetoric ta me sis.

Oh yes, I'm sure there will be a reasonable explanation from the pulpit gang of bible-bangers concerning why the god didn't kill us outright to prove it's existence.

Maybe it just wants people to have faith in its existence, as faith is mysterious rather than proof-positive.

Apparently this god hides its knowledge on purpose to keep humans in dark dungeons while IT sucks up all the light and perfection for itself.

Stupid dogmas.

The Catholics did not only vilify the dogmas of the Jews. They vilified the dogmas of all religions that came before them, and didn't foresee that the Muslims and Protestants would come after them ... literally and figuratively.

The Progress of the Intellect: As Exemplified in the Religious Development of the Greeks and Hebrew, Volumes 1-2, by Robert William Mackay.

But the serpent had many varying meanings. A serpent ring was a well-known symbol of time; and to express dramatically how time preys upon itself, the Egyptian priests fed vipers in a subterranean chamber, as it were in the sun’s winter abode, on the fat of bulls or the year’s plenteousness.

A feathered serpent deity has been worshipped by many different ethno-political groups in Mesoamerican history.

The Woman’s Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred objects … by Barbara G. Walker.

Serpent

The Middle East used to regard the female serpent as the embodiment of enlightenment, or wisdom, because she understood the mysteries of life. In Arabic, the words for “snake,”“life,” and “teaching” are all related to the name of Eve—the biblical version of the Goddess with her serpent form, who gave the food of enlightenment to the first man.

The Woman’s Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred objects … by Barbara G. Walker.

Leviathan was the Hebrew name of the great Serpent god called Lotan or Lawtan in northern Canaan, Ladon in Greece, and Sata or Apep in Egypt. Ladon was the guardian of the holy fruit of the Tree of Life in Hera’s garden, and his appearance in the Garden of Eden seems to have been copied from a similar image.

They are Christians ... NOT Jews.
The people of thexworld have been deceived even before the advent of Jesus.
The early Egyptians understood that you had to love your neighbor as yourself...no deity required...and they survived peacefully for thousands of years on that premise(for the most part)...until the incursion of abrahamism and then Romanism(barbarism) into their empire.--over 3000 years...then came Moses/Solomon/Joseph...and Islam to finish the burning and destruction of knowledge.

My guess is, that Jew will be so impressed with your ability to label heterosexuals as evil sinners that he might wet his invisible self.

I already answered that last time. You're an idiot.
You're not at all interested in what Catholics really believe.(in fact, I don't think you're interested in what Protestants do either.lol Scary)
God didn't ask Joseph to take Mary as his wife so they could be romantic and procreate. Joseph was old. He already been there done that.
Joseph was asked to be her Husband so he could provide for Mary and Jesus.
You have responded to my question...you have prattled about my question...you have danced all around my question...but you have never answered it!!!

When a husband takes unto him his wife......does that mean that she remains a virgin...forever!!!!!????

The Bible clearly says that an angel of the Lord told him "fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife" and it says he did "and took unto him his wife".

The answer is obvious...the truth is staring you in the face....

Of course she could not have remained a virgin...after Joseph took her to wife...

Your quotes of Mary are from three little children. Mary didn't say it. Three little kids said Mary said it. And THAT'S what the Catholic Church teaches about Fatima, in case you're interested in truth. Mary is our spiritual Mother. If anyone is in need of a spiritual Mother, its you.
you do not understand enough about scripture to dive into Marian doctrine. Its best to stay away until you can learn more, otherwise you risk offending Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Tell me, does Heaven have a King? If so, who would be the Queen? You can't tell me there is a King with no Queen. lol
If God is a King and Mary is his Queen, then in what why would Mary NOT be a goddess?

The King and his Queen had a son named Jesus, but before Mary was officially His queen.

Here's where it gets strange. Jesus is part of the Holy Trinity, being one with the Father.

Wait!! Now Queen Mary has a problem, in light of the definition of the Holy Trinity.

No matter, I get it. Based on what you are told, how can you NOT worship Mary?

Mary is both the Queen of Heaven and Mother of God, who lived as a human, but was forever sinless just like Jesus.

WOW, IT GETS EVEN CRAZIER!!! The Apostles and their students somehow forgot to mention any of this.

How is it possible?
