I wonder what changed the mind of religionists to show them that they cannot just burn people to death anymore.
I betcha that they were bummed out - just a wee bit!
:o)
So Catholics and Prtestants, why are we not still seeing people burned and tortured anymore? Did your religion change its view on heresy?
Theologians wrote from their cruel own assessments what a god wanted them to do to other people ... and they followed those words to a T.

Now Christians want to pretend those words don't exist and that a god never commanded the killing of others.

They lie through their teeth.

Why people even desire to belong to religious groups that teach such horrible dogmas is beyond me.
I was under the spell of religion for most of my life, but I created a belief of my own that the one god loved everybody without conditions put upon the love.
At least I wasn't trying to grab all the supposed love for my self while claiming that others deserved to spend eternity in hell.
Religion is BUNK!
"THE SPELL OF RELIGION" Exactly!

Just as I thought....you have no testimony...because you are not saved.
AHEM ... excuse me ... but is "god" not supposed to judge who is and who is not saved???

It seems that you have tripped over your own judgment on the way to wait for god to judge.

By all means, please take my presence here as gospel that I am committing blasphemeth against yours or any other God. Now does that mean I must be killed for it? Am I to suffer for all eternity? Is that righteousness? Is that mercy? Is that love?
Is that how your all powerful and everliving god delivers his message?

Or for my sins is he going to create another holocaust. He is the creator after all.

Like I said earlier, membership in the church is falling,(i.e. donations), so you have to go with the flow during these times to survive.
Considering - per Anthony and Clay - "the Pope is infallible", so his teachings are not in error.

So what would you attribute to arriving at an answer?
Since you don't believe in the Self, then please remove "free will" from the list of answers, or any other aspect of your character that has to do with free will.
Thanks!

"Answer to WHAT??"
- Your statement to me involves a conclusion you made. How did you come to that conclusion?
My conclusion is that your opinions or my opinions of what self should be, are of no value to others unless others agree with those opinions.

So when you keep posting the word self ... I don't know what you believe that accomplishes other than to cause more confusion.

Drinking and Praying: Proposal Could Tip Irish Priests Over Legal Limit

Both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland want to lower the legal blood alcohol level for drivers. Priests are afraid it might affect their ability to motor around after Mass.

Bad Blood: Priests in Ireland are concerned that lowering the legal drinking level for drivers might leave them stranded after Mass.

The job description for a Catholic priest doesn't include a lot of perks -- perhaps one reason that their numbers are shrinking rapidly across the Western world. In Ireland, though, the gig might be further complicated by a new proposal to lower the legal blood alcohol limit for drivers. Priests there are speaking out against the proposal because it could render them legally drunk after performing Mass.

Why is it that you are drinking the actual blood of Christ....and the priests in Ireland are not... they are drinking wine that could get them arrested for DUI???!!!!!

Aunt refused to answer that question....you want to have a go at it????

People who commit crimes or offenses against humanity are not automatically excommunicated, Ro.
Church teaching never required killing anyone. Did people do it? Yes, but not in accord with Church doctrine or dogma. They rationalized their actions via the Church. Bad actors.
The Church is made up of the people who commanded the killings.

Please stop twisting history to be a flavor that sits well on the palette.

It really shows how ignorant you really are to your organization's history.

God made people who are homosexual. That orientation is not "reprobate" nor are those who possess that orientation.
You equate 'God gave them over to a reprobate mind', to 'making them homosexual',etc?

So God made them sin?

"God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."

If the Roman Catholic Church is the only AUTHORITATIVE and PROVEN TRUTH, believing, worshipping and adhering to the TRUTH of Jesus Christ's ....One True Catholic Church..

The whole earth is going to hell in a hand basket.

Jesus might as well not have died, and Heaven will have very

few occupants..

The Bible says

Rev_21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Rev_22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

according to the above scripture

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC (so called )

CHURCH JUST DOES NOT QUALIFY.....

I DID NOT MAKE THE RULES...GOD DID

AND NEITHER OF US CAN CHANGE THEM...

Lying is part of Christendom.

a. They refuse to accept all of what Jesus taught, yet claim they are in the "fullness of Jesus". They lie.

b. They exclaim the Bible is true in all regards, but we can blatantly see that some of the Bible is not, as they refuse to acknowledge certain "laws" within the Bible are invalid, so they lie about it and avoid those texts altogether, so they don't have to continue to lie about the passages.

Just ask any so-called "Christian" this question:
- Is the Bible true and without error?
