Funny...when I look up the definition of "take heed" I get - listen and pay attention.

The Closet

A woman takes a lover home during the day while her husband is at work. Her 9-year old son comes home unexpectedly and he sees them so he hides in the bedroom closet to watch.

The woman's husband also comes home. She puts her lover in the closet, not realizing that the little boy is in there already.

The little boy says,'Dark in here.'

The man says,'Yes, it is.'

Boy:'I have a baseball.'

Man:'That's nice.'

Boy:'Want to buy it?'

Man:'No, thanks.'

Boy:'My Dad's outside.'

Man:'OK, how much?'

Boy:'$250.'

In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the lover are in the closet together.

Boy:'Dark in here.'

Man:'Yes, it is.'

Boy:'I have a baseball glove.'

The lover, remembering the last time, asks the boy, How much?'

Boy:'$750.'

Man:'Sold.'

A few days later, the Dad says to the boy,'Grab your glove, let's go outside and have a game of catch.'

The boy says,'I can't, I sold my baseball and my glove.'

The Dad asks,'How much did you sell them for?'

Boy:'$1,000.'

The Dad says,'Itís terrible to over charge your friends like that! That is way more than those two things cost. I'm taking you to church, to confession.'

They go to the church and the Dad makes the little boy sit in the confessional booth and closes the door.

The boy says,'Dark in here.'

The priest says,'Don't start that shit again; you're in my closet now.'

"...one can be good without a god..."
one could possibly be a good human to other humans without God, but what good could they possibly be to their Creator when they neglect and disrespect Him???
"and it repented God that He made man upon the earth" - God, prior to flooding all humanity accept for one family who didn't forget about their Creator

..."be good without a god"? LOL

A human being can do SOME good things because GOD (not god) put His Spirit into mankind...He breathed life into man and man became a living soul...therefore man has some of God in himself, and is capable of doing good things.

But Adam yielded his 'will' to Satan's lie ('you shall be as gods'). Therefore man's 'will' is colored to do evil.(Natural men STILL WANT TO BE SUPREME.)

How sad that a living soul would choose to defy his maker and do evil things! SO ungrateful.

Simply put, the more man chooses/obeys God, the more GOOD that he accomplishes.

who="jethro8"we have free will? so we don't have to follow the book of rules alleged to be the words of a god on how we are suppose to live and pray to him? and nothing bad will happen to us if we do this? if we freely choose not to believe what is written? if heaven exists we will still be allowed to go there? like I posted a few minutes ago, I keep hearing from religious people say god has a plan for us, if that is true how can we have free will? if our lives are already mapped out for us by some great plan by a god?

Did that Jewish pope mean that you would go to heaven, or to Olam Ha Ba where the faithful Jews reside???

Rumor has it that before you invest too much faith in something useless, it's very important to "know" the details.

The Muslims agree with you. It's really silly to believe that humans could be good without fighting over who the one god in the sky loves and who he will burn in which hell.

Stick a fork in it. I'm not lying when I clearly say 'forgive me if I represented your views wrong, Preston'
Besides, a 'lying accusation' from you means nothing, as you're not interested in truth to begin with.
Don't blame Catholics because of the enormous challenge it is to keep track of the Biblical understandings of all you guys.
If God and Mary combined DNA to bring forth Christ in the flesh, then Mary had to be pure and without sin. FULL of Grace.

Then, if Mary was not 'fully human', Christ was not fully human...and you have no hope.

Within the theological mish-mash, is that why he will take away a wish of humans to go to heaven and override their free will with his own will to in turn send them to hell for not believing in him???

According to many Jews, the real messiah hasn't come yet as the conditions haven't been right.

Many Jews believe the messiah will come for the first time, and the Christians believe the messiah will come for the second time.

Apparently the god is a real jokester, as he likes to confuse devout believers by giving them totally different information.

Muslim child dies and awakens to his fate in the afterlife.

The one god is waiting to judge him, but isn't certain how to do it, because the one god is expected to judge Jews, Muslims and Christians all at the same time.

Muslim child ... "Hello Allah ... am I in paradise."

Big difference.
Theology is the study of all religions, and you fail that test, because your will to discredit other religions as false and credit only your own as truth is all concerned with favoritism and nothing but.
June, you fail at even defining truth.
i can define Truth; it's not a thing, but a Person:

"I AM the Way, the TRUTH and the Life" Jesus

anyone who wants to can Know Jesus through His Word and His Spirit.

please don't hate us like cain hated abel, just cuz we choose to trust in the Sacrifice of Christ for our righteousness:-)

and if you and your new girlfriend June are wrong, then what?

I don't think you've ever seen a Christian on this forum say they are perfect. As far as what you are, no one ever said that either.
Maybe you have low self-esteem.

Do you have a life like June? Nothing to do but go on a public forum and tell folks there I no God?

to believe that religions are false is not bigotry, but it's knowledge & understanding. to discriminate against people for being religious is bigotry.

i believe that all religions are false, including yours which i believe is the most evil and vicious of them all - self-righteous humanism!

You're right, you shouldn't waste your time with me. You guys already had your chance. Yrs ago, I sought to NOT be Catholic anymore. I listened to many different protestant sects. You all failed miserably because I caught you lying about Catholicism. Upon further study, I caught you changing the word of God.
You don't teach the same Christianity as the Apostles. You only read the documented writings that the Catholic Church said is sacred scripture. Then, you apply 21st century thought, language and culture to form a theology based on yer private interpretation.
The jig is up. Its over, we exposed your Biblical recklessness.
Should have become Orthodox if you were searching for the Truth...

ALL Christianity is just a slight different version of the Pagan Roman Religion of Paul and Constantine.
There is little difference between Catholics and Protestants. Both believe the same mythology, you just hate each other over assinine details.
You both believe in a Zombie God that knocked up a little girl to give birth to himself so he could kill himself to be happy.
You clowns simply threw a yarmulke on Zeus ad Hercules.
ROFLMAO
And folks like you and June have nothing going on in your lives so you come on a public forum to tell us how you feel. Thanks

Someone earlier asked you how are you holding up? What's wrong little buddy? You want to talk about it?

i'm pretty sure tha we're on the same page KayMarie, but i would go a step further to say that even man's attmepts at doing good/God's will, apart from being born-again of the Spirit of God, are as filthy rags as far as pleasing God is concerned.

apart from God (i.e., His Spirit working in us) we can do nothing good/of eternal consequence:-)

There 'is One God', is what the Bible teaches Ox, of course we no longer worship HIM in the flesh but in the Spirit.

Scripture says: Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

Are you standing there before me and the world, goggle-eyed, flat-footed, bat eared, and saying that God, in the flesh, was dirty...needed to be cleansed from all filthiness?????

And are you saying that God, in the flesh, was an adulterer, a fornicator, unclean, and full of lasciviousness..
