Such B.S. She admitted on video that she was building convents to train more nuns to be saints for "god."

That money was meant to feed the poor, and those babies, children and adults were starving to death in her "care" as she preached that suffering was the kiss of Jesus.

When she was dying she had the best of care in a hospital.

I used to admire her, until I realized that she it was all about serving her religion and not the poor people that surrounded her and died on a daily basis.

"Mother" also thought very HIGHLY of her self, as she took on the title of "Superior General."

Well than he has joined billions of others who have experienced the same,someday though he will meet the ONE he scoffed so much with his entertaining comedy and typical anti-God opinions.As if George Carlin was uniquely different from all the rest of the scoffers in this world? Sorry,June he was not.Should I say may he rest in peace?
I hope if there is an afterlife that George Carlin is being rewarded for exposing the lies in religion, and that he and the goddess are having a high time reminiscing about the stupidity of preachers that thought they knew truth yet could never agree.

The real point of this discussion was,..can we as believers sin..even grievously...And be led back into repentance by the HOLY SPIRIT.

That passage that was quoted from Hebrews seems to say the can't.

You don't quit preaching, so why would you expect that of others?

<quoted text>
You have been duped....
The story of the prodigal son is the last one on redemption. The first was the lost sheep. The second was the lost coin.
I stand on what I have spoken and reinforced by what thus saith the Lord. when Jesus spoke the Parables, it was for the Jewish people to first understand. any teacher of the Bible realizes this. consider Father Abraham. when Jesus spoke of him, the jews knew him, first.

But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

this might help you in your misunderstanding.

Points of Interest from the Story:

• Typically, a son would receive his inheritance at the time of his father's death. The fact that the younger brother instigated the early division of the family estate showed a rebellious and proud disregard for his father's authority, not to mention a selfish and immature attitude.

• Pigs were unclean animals. Jews were not even allowed to touch pigs. When the son took a job feeding pigs, even longing for their food to fill his belly, it reveals that he had fallen as low as he could possibly go. This son represents a person living in rebellion to God. Sometimes we have to hit rock-bottom before we come to our senses and recognize our sin.

• The father is a picture of the Heavenly Father. God waits patiently, with loving compassion to restore us when we return to him with humble hearts. He offers us everything in his kingdom, restoring full relationship with joyful celebration. He doesn't even dwell on our past waywardness.

• Reading from the beginning of chapter 15, we see that the older son is clearly a picture of the pharisees. In their self-righteousness, they have forgotten to rejoice when a sinner returns to God. Bitterness and resentment keeps the older son from forgiving his younger brother. It blinds him to the treasure he freely enjoys through constant relationship with the father.

Questions for Reflection:

Who are you in this story? Are you a prodigal, a pharisee or a servant? Are you the rebellious son, lost and far from God? Are you the self-righteous pharisee, no longer capable of rejoicing when a sinner returns to God? Maybe you've hit rock-bottom, come to your senses and decided to run to God's open arms of compassion and mercy? Or are you one of the servants in the household, rejoicing with the father when a lost son finds his way home?

Second try...

Aunt declared: No pope has ever declared a doctrine on faith and morals that is in error. Even the bad ones...

That is a lie...

Example: This is Catholic dogmaw....
Adam’s sin is transmitted to his posterity, not by imitation, but by descent.

Here is what God said:
And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

God said not one word about Adams's posterity...not one.

It's all about you. You are simply influencing your self.

If all of you right-fighters knew truth from the one and only god, there would be nothing to fight ABOUT.

You know it, and I know it.

You simply get a huge HIGH out of preaching!

you ddidnt ask this question of me but I can answer it very easily.

If the Holy Spiit is leading a person to repent, then the answer is yes.

Now Yesterday, I spoke of a man who had been spoke to by the Holy Spirit and he refused the call to Come.

and yet I said that he had got Saved just before he died.

was he again wooed by the Spirit? I don't think so. I believe(and this is only my opinion) that he had to come forward on his own, with Faith believing. For the Bible says, that without Faith, it is impossible to Please God.

It had been over 40 year(I think) since God had first spoke to him, and the Bible says that it is not His will that any should perish but that ALL come to repentance. I do believe that this would have been his last chance since he died right after that, and thru me, the Spirit spoke to him telling him that God loved him
