If a creator created the universe, the creator was there to service or punish all humans through all human history.

Just suppose that as some scientists claim, humans were on earth 40,000 years ago ... "that is just one estimate to make my point."

Christians believe that the creator never sent a legitimate savior to earth during all that time.

If that is true, then the creator didn't want humans to know about salvation until the last two thousand years.

That puts the creator in a position of absolute neglect of his own supposedly beloved humans, as for 38,000 of those years he left them without hope of any help whatsoever.

Religion is stupid!!!

Having faith that others deserve hell and you deserve heaven probably is the same as having faith in the beliefs of other religions, as most of them DO believe that others deserve hell.
For instance Muslims teach that all others than Muslims will burn in hell ... and Christians teach that all others than Christians will burn in hell.
So your faith is valid and sadly in dire need of refreshment.
June:

I think I understand what you mean. And I agree.

The point is don't have faith in one's own beliefs,(or other's beliefs). I think doing so begins a process of idolatry in the mind. Various devotions/rituals arise to reinforce the strength, and a false self-confidence.

We all do it to some degree, and when we catch ourselves falling into that mode of thinking, generally it is because the conscience is disturbed, and one becomes aware that "something" is wrong. Generally speaking, I think it(idolatry) occurs most often when a person does things out of a bad habit, rather than spontaneously....

In similar fashion it is better to become congruent(psychologically speaking) to establish peace within oneself.

You aren't an authority on truth, the bible or what makes a person a Christian, so your opinion of me is meaningless.
Jethro doesn't believe the bible. Why would you amen someone who talks about God but doesn't believe in God?
Anthony, are you sure you want to cross paths with me again.

You are not an authority on the Bible either Anthony, I have never claimed to been.
You do not believe the bible either , even though you say your religion gave us the Holy Scripture .
Why does your church discourage people from reading God's Holy Word Anthony, when Jesus told us to search the Holy Scriptures .
Isn't that going against God???
Everything Jesus told us to do the catholic church says not to do.
He told you not to build idols your church's are full of them, Jesus said to pray to god alone in His Holy Name you say to pray to Mary and other dead saints.
to add insult to injury the statues of Mary, are large while the idol who is suppose to be Jesus is a baby small and helpless
Except the one on the Popes staff, it depict Jesus as a corpse, rotting and decayed.
Jesus knew not decay, just like the Bible says .Acts 2: 24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:

26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:

27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

Been there --and done that for over 35 years! It is ALL YOURS!! You CAN HAVE IT!......... I'll continue to remain with 2000 years of the PROVEN Historical and biblical TRUTH of Jesus Christ and His One (and only one) TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church----which is the FULLNESS of the FAITH and the FULLNESS of the TRUTH in Jesus Christ HIMSELF and the Eucharist!!
Many Protestants are becoming Catholics. Great is the spirit of deception that is enveloping the globe. Just another sign of the times.

Even if as the creationists believe, that humans have only been on earth for six thousand years ... that would mean for the first four thousand years (according to Christians) the creator chose not to give any other group of believers a REAL savior.

By clinging to such a belief, Christians depict the god as a bungling vindictive idiot.

who="Hermeneutics Smutics"I love that verse. I was not aware of that. I will commit it to heart and it will give me much peace.I am improving.Praise God!May Christ and His Angels cover your Niece with their peace and blessings.Christ was with me long before I knew what a Church was.Christ was with me before I knew Him.Thanks again for the verse.This may just be my favorite.

**********

Good thinking. God's Word is true and POWERFUL. It is alive. He revealed Psalms 73:26 to me: "My flesh and my heart fail: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever."

He has kept me for many years with those words.

What you said ...you are right..I did not find Him in any church.
I learned about Him as A,Catholic .
But found Him as He spoke into my soul..on my knees in my own bedroom..
No candles..No statues. Just a confluence of things drawing me close.
And after many years when I was going my own way ..sinning ...
Who would wan5 such as me ..THE SPIRIT calls ...And calls ...And by Gods mercy we are able to a answer ...because He thinks I matter to Him .
How great is that!!!!! Amazing Grace indeed..

Thank you for you testimony

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That sav’d a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev’d;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ’d!

Thro’ many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promis’d good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call’d me here below,
Will be forever mine.

When we've been there ten thousand years,
Bright shinning as the sun;
We've no less days to sing God's praise,
Than when we first begun.

I suggest you cut the poetic bullsh*t and give me a straight-fore-word yes or no answer to my question.
Do you believe as an Atheist I will go to hell Robert?
Be careful how you answer that question.
If you answer "Yes" ... it will mean that you do believe a god favors Catholics.
And if you answer "No" ... it will mean that you believe being a Catholic is of no benefit to believers.
June:

Actually, last night, I read your question, but was to tired to give an answer....

I am sorry if I disappoint you, but I hope if not now, then in the future you might understand my response.

It is part of my beliefs that I do not judge others. And so what you are asking me to do is to judge you. I am not qualified.

I think you, as everyone tries to apply their ethical standards in as correct a fashion as they understand. So the question remains are they correct enough for God? And that is between you and God.

Most people have this innate sense of searching for the Truth, and until they find it, they are not at peace within themselves. Yes, there are temporary truths we find along the journey in life, and these are small consolations, which are like shade in the hot sun....

You have bonded yourself to that self-serving system of belief.

There are many systems of belief in other religions, but you are not bonded to them so you vilify them.

Why does that matter? Here is the Spin Brother's post: Jethro doesn't believe the bible. Why would you amen someone who talks about God but doesn't believe in God?

Jethro doesn't believe the bible - and either do muslims

Why would you amen someone who talks about God but doesn't believe in God - why would the pope kiss a book of those who reject Christ.

Want me to add your name to the Spin Brothers? lolol

Out of charity I avoid commenting on your feeble-minded and ignorant posts to spare you the embarrassment. I'll usually only address you when you're either attacking me or throwing out another whopper of a lie about the Catholic Church.

I am not an authority. The Catholic Church is. All I do is correct your errors regarding the Catholic faith and history.

I do believe in the bible. It is historical fact that the only reason protestants even have a bible is because of the Catholic Church. I don't believe in your version of the bible, especially because you have no authority to teach the bible and also because you are barely literate and are a menace to biblical truth.

The Catholic Church never, ever discouraged people from reading the bible, they only discouraged people from reading BAD TRANSLATIONS of the bible.

We have no idols in our Churches.

We don't pray TO Mary or the saints, we ask them to pray to Jesus for us.

We show Jesus on the cross to remind us of His sacrifice and because St. Paul said we are to preach Him crucified.
