For those who believe that the human species came from outer space and brought wisdom to earth ... I suggest if humans were wise, they would not fight over who a god loves and why the god loves only certain people.

I also suggest that if humans originated in other spheres, dimensions of existence ... so did all the other animals such as the dinosaurs.

Picture them coming to earth on their own space-ship ... if you will.

I didn't quote her as saying "it was a Catholic thing". I didn't directly quote her at all.
I summed up what she said to the best of my memory. I think your earlier post said it well. You went back and found the exchange.
She thinks that - since its in the news more about Catholics - that we have more of an issue than anyone else, including the Orthodox. I call that misguided ignorance. I don't believe you have any evidence showing how its a Catholic issue. The only thing you got is lopsided media reporting.

So what I was saying, is if you're going to rely on that, then there is a lack of a truthful approach to your posts about this issue

Religion teaches negativity ... with the exception of course of the new age Pagan religions that teach a goddess loves everybody, which is also as silly as it gets.
That means that serial killers can kill as many others as suits them and they will not be harshly judged by the goddess. That means that those who used and use their religious beliefs to torture and kill others are also loved by the goddess.
Religion is BUNK!
I suggest we take all the gods and goddesses out of the picture and try to be as kind to each other as our selfish human nature allows.

I had to have a serious talk with God on the issue of "confession" a couple of days ago.
Being raised a non-Catholic, I find it "easier" to go directly to God for confession and repentance. I also know, when God is working with me my penance, and know his forgiveness.... And I go hastily to God for both.
I am a bit reluctant to go to a priest for "confession". But consider it one more of reconciliation with God and believers. In a certain sense it is a ritual, but all things carry this aspect. We tend to "ritualize" our confession to God.
I try to remember James 5:16, when it comes to confession. It is "harder" to do, but we must go to those we have offended and ask forgiveness. It is best to give forgiveness to others before asking God to forgive one's own sins....
Thank you Robert and God's blessing on you.

I'm doing pretty good for an old fossil, thank you. God has blessed me.

I do not believe that Sola Scripture has complicated matters...matters which existed before the compilation of the Bible. If only one 'church' were allowed to exist in this world, that 'matter' would still be a problem.

The CC has been in existence for a long while, but it has not been without internal problems. WHY? Because it is administrated by men...who are in different stages of understanding.

Many Protestant churches are not different at all...just have different names due to location, and/or the families that built them.

Jesus prayed that we might all BE one, not that we might all join one group. I have Christian brothers and sisters (who agree in spirit with me) all over the world. Their churches have different names; some don't baptize in the same way, or have some other minor differences.(Sprinkle, submerge, etc.)

'The fact is that sola scriptura does not avoid "wild teachings" contradiction and inconsistencies, regarding doctrine and bible interpretation.'

Yes it does! If your church does not use the Bible alone your in the wrong church.

Hojo...there have always been people who come up with strange interpretations. The Sola Scripture was instituted to help avoid some of this. The idea is that doctrine's must not disagree with what is written.
People STILL come up with some pretty wild teachings which can generally be corrected by a closer and more complete study of what the Bible presents.
Hundreds of years as a best-seller for which men will die (and by which the live godly lives), has authenticated it.
KayMarie
"the Bible....as a best seller"
- this should actually be....

"The Bible - the only book GIVEN TO THE MOST PEOPLE."

One should not have to pay for the Bible.

If you do, then you have partaken in a "profit of of God and Jesus" campaign, placing money as the superior aspect of the transaction.

Religion should not cost anyone anything, but unfortunately, religion spawns greed:
- Religious goods selling
- Manufacturing and the selling of crosses
- Selling bibles
- Selling Eucharist supplies/wafers to churches
- Selling flowers to churches
etc..etc...etc...

The next time you think money isn't heavily involved with religion, just think of the payouts the Catholic Church has made to the victims of child abuse that they cover-up with those settlements.

As I started the post with repeating what seems to be something you like to say openly - "the Bible....as a best seller"
- is completely based in greed.

My suggestion to you - boycott the selling and buying of religious items.

You BELIEVE a god has blessed you, and will curse other in a hereafter.

It makes you HAPPY to BELIEVE that you are not going to be cursed, while other evil souls WILL be cursed.

Your religion suits you to a T ... and that is nothing for which to BE proud!

Actually, Jesus said that 'if you WILL not forgive (others), My Father WILL NOT forgive you'.

So, if one will not forgive others, they keep their own blessings 'bound up'. Jesus said (NOT just to Peter),'Whatever you bind on earth is bound in heaven'. Those who keep others 'bound' by their unforgiveness' are themselves 'bound'.

Jesus said to 'agree quickly with your adversary', because when you appear in court the judge will "throw the book at you".

Want to STAND in God's presence INNOCENT and forgiven? Then forgive others, and settle the matter BEFORE THE JUDGE has to do the job.

Why would anyone need a witness?
- To ensure the person isn't lying?
- to ensure the person is speaking truthfully?
- How is that another person can discern these two differences?
- what benefit is had, when a witness is present?
- what exactly does the witness do, afterwards?

What exactly does the person do afterwards?

Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

For my pardon, this I see,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing this my plea,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Naught of good that I have done,

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Glory! Glory! This I sing—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
All my praise for this I bring—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

JESUS SAID

Mat_15:17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?

Mar_7:19 Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?

Rom 4:4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

Rom 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

Rom 4:7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

I understand why so many Christians are flocking to modern Paganism to a new belief that the goddess loves everybody unconditionally.

The thought of hanging out with Christians that believe they are saved and others will spend eternity in hell makes my skin crawl.

To be honest I'd rather commit suicide than to belong to an organization that is full of such arrogance. And I am serious.
