"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.
Should I decide to want a new Bible to keep or give for a gift.

Sorry nit going to steal it or print it myself ..

Sane with a Cross as a gift..

Unfortunately the sold my local Christian store I loved to browse in.

So I must use Amazon...they are real funny like that about wanting to be paid

<quoted text>It simple Dusty....the catholic church is an abortion from the truth...the bride of frankenstien...and if you want I can post you a link of more than a handful of evil popes.Hows that for me being honest and yes In this post I am smearing the catholic church which is aready smeared from its own doings.Thank you very much and have a nice day! And yes, I already know by posting this post that I have sinned and that it is not Christian of me.But when you have an enemy as yourself,you must fight fire with fire.
You sinned alot before this. Bless those who curse you. Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those trespass against us. I forgive you. I will pray for you and I pray for Nick too as I do not need to pray in public to be seen. I pray that God leads the leaders of the church to unite in truth. The hate is coming from your end not ours, but at least you acknowledge your sin while at the same time vowing to do it more. Good stuff!

I just found out that a most kind and gentle man committed suicide.

He was a wonderful husband and a wonderful father to his children, with no financial difficulties, no health problems, didn't suffer from depression, loved the outdoors, skiing, et cetera ... had no enemies whatsoever ... yet he left others behind to always wonder why.

From my perception he cared too much about helping others and in so doing, way over-extended his self.

First off Sera - I asked you to answer, not some website.
http://oca.org/questions/sacramentconfession/...
The arrogance of Christianity.....
QUESTION:
Canít I go to God, who already knows what Iíve done, and confess?
ANSWER:
Yes, one can confess directly to Godóbut refusing to confess in the presence of a priest implies that one can also be oneís own spiritual physician.
Just another fallacy created by men to control men, or to deceive them into thinking they "need the Church".
I think you forgot the part of the equation that states....
"My life is between me and God."
"one must have a personal relationship with 'God'".
Your version negates both of these statements.
*sighs*
sorry to have disappoint you.Would an invite to dinner make up for it.

Actually I wish there were NO abortions as it would be better for all involved.
But as there will be women having abortions, I trust the women to make their own decisions, and I will strive to keep the clinics open for those who decide that abortion is what makes the most sense to them in their specific situations.
You can pretend that you are working for a god if it so pleases you and you can believe that a god is offended by abortion. I don't happen to agree with your opinion.
From my point of view it is all important to do everything in my power to keep the women alive, and keeping the clinics open is the best solution concerning the issue.

Jealous of hermi's friendship with confronting? Look in the mirror before judging others with your PERSONAL attacks..in fact I do believe that's what this isreally all about.You catholics are jealous of the friendship that hermi and I have with the protestants here. Its not really the attacks to your church.Thats the excuse you make but the really truth is JEALOUSY..they don't attack us because we respect them.We know what they believe about certain things in our church like icons etc.We do not take it personally nor have the need to defend our belief.Thats what an open dialog is all about.its not about bullying name calling and p---ing in the wind about my church is better than your church.There are faults in all of MANS doings.

<quoted text>Clay you said Sera said "it is a Catholic thing". She corrected this. She replied that she said she believed there was more abuse in the ath Church cause thats what you see on the news.( posted the number) You basically called her a liar and claimed she said it was a "Catholic thing" I posted the link. What does it take for you to admit it and not twist.Now it was your "interpretation".
.
I don't care to Prestonize these discussions. I mean, we are all adults here. The issue at hand isn't whether or not it was a direct quote. The issue is what Sera was trying to imply. So in that respect, I totally stand by my original accusation that she believes its a 'Catholic thing'. Now you've clarified on her behalf, that she is saying child sexual abuse is more of a problem in the Catholic Church then the Orthodox Church, because its plastered on the news more.
Well, that's STILL a reckless position from you. Its STILL an irresponsible statement. I see it as combining slander with your defense of the Orthodox Church.

For a man called of God you certainly have a difficult time answering questions regarding things of God!!!
Do you agree with the teaching of the Catholics and the SBC:
Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself human nature with its demands and necessities and identifying Himself completely with mankind yet without sin...
And: The Catholics:
Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God...redeemer of the human Race..
I am neither catholic nor do I belong to the SBC. my beliefs are that of a definite SECOND WORK of GRACE, and which is that of the Holiness Movement, which follows a very close Walk with the Lord.

you have been told time and time again, that Jesus is God.

so that makes you a heretic of the First degree, in which the Bible tells us what to do with people like you. therefore I am not going to respond further to you about this silly game that you wish to display on this forum.

feel free to call me a coward all that you wish, the honest people on it know that I am not afraid to voice my opinion backed up by the Lord's Word.

now go back and play with your crayons again and don't eat any. if the electric goes out in your nursing home, those crayons will provide light the same as a candle would.

GOD DON'T SEND ANY ONE TO HELL...THEY MAKE THE OWN CHOICE TO GO THERE themselves...JUST AS YOU HAVE..and defend you choice against freedom...

You are the one that has chosen to receive eternal punishment as apposed to believing upon the Lord Jesus Christ, and entering in to His rest..

You alone have decided the fate of your soul...

You have been expose to The Love of God and evidently have chosen to rail upon Him...for some insane reason..

You will have hell pay and no on but you will be responsible for what you have opted to do.

I wish the situations in the lives of women were such that they didn't feel compelled TO have abortions.

But since they do feel compelled to have abortions for their own personal reasons, I want the clinics to stay open so they don't have a desperate need to perform the abortions on their selves, et cetera.

Is that more clear to you?

I will pray for you. Far from jealous, but your hypocrisy and lies were noted and proven long ago. So are you an infidel or not? Have you checked with the confrinters? Are you dead to the truth or is that just Catholics? Or do select Orthodox get a Gif pass?

I worked with victims and offenders for 22 years.I have done abuse investigations. I have dealt with institutional and family cover ups. I have dealt with institutions with wonderful anti-sexual abuse policies that few followed and the hierarchy devised to protect themselves.Deal with that for 22 years and then tell me my caution is reckless. I did not sat I believed the sexual abuse is worse in the Cath than Ortho Church. I said it is worse than other Churches.You think you know about sexual abuse in institutions? You think you know about policies and cover ups? How many offenders have you dealt with? ow many institutions? How many victims? Also I never ever defended abuse in the Orthio Church by referring to the Cath Church. That's your and Storm's practice.Is there no shame in misquoting and rewriting history?
