Near-Death Experiences of Muslims

Many Muslims believe that the righteous are able to see visions of God after death and that the wicked see visions of hell. Except for these possible visions of heaven or hell, Muslims believe the soul remains in a kind of "soul sleep" until Judgment Day. When the Day of Judgment arrives, everyone is judged according to their deeds in life. Many Muslims believe that non-Muslims can attain heaven only after a period of purification in the fires of purgatory.

Wow, this is a profound statement that goes way beyond your own church's teachings.
"For Christianity, its either the Catholic faith or nothing. Any other scenario uses way to much ignorance and man made theories."
Neither you nor your antagonists can see it.
You each apply different standards to the other's interpretation of the Bible than you do to your own.
In today's world, why would any Christian tell anyone else who professes to love Jesus, and who lives) a moral life (as far as you know, that they are not Christian?
You claim to be a faithful Roman Catholic. Please show us - where does the Roman Catholic church teach such things?
Who teaches you such things? Pope Francis maybe? That must be it. Let's make those his words:
"For Christianity, its either the Catholic faith or nothing. Any other scenario uses way to much ignorance and man made theories."
Pope Francis
(Sorry, just having a little fun. Don't let others control you so much :o)
Its either the Catholic faith or nothing, for the revelation of truth. God works with all peoples. But the fullness of truth can only be one. Sorry, but the 50,000 protestant popes could not be the revealers of truth. Its been proving too many times how Protestantism has launched Christianity into a doctrinal chaotic mess. Truth has been twisted so often its sad

NOTE...NONE OF YOUR SAINTS.... BODIES (THAT YOU WORSHIP AND PRAY TO) HAVE BEEN REDEEMED...
===>THIS... INCLUDES... MARY THE MOTHER OF JESUS...WHOM YOU CLAIM
Confrinting---I see that you "continue" to (appoint yourself) as the "final judge" regarding the Salvation, faith and redemption of ANYONE and EVERYONE else's personal relationship with Jesus Christ, as you attack HIS faithfilled Saints, that have "all gone before us, marked with the sign of faith" in Our Lords One True Catholic Church.......... It is obvious that your OWN personal vengeance against Jesus Christ HIMSELF has TOTALLY corrupted, infected and decayed your heart, mind and soul....... The ONLY THING THAT YOUR MINISTRY CAN STAND UPON is to condemn and pass judgement against the faith of other Christians (especially Catholics). Your "smoke and mirrors" Quoting and misquoting of bible verses attracts (by deception) a handful of "non-thinking" hostile anti-catholic hatemongers like you, who you have "duped" to your "bible only" snake oil ministry!!......The TRUTH has, is and will ALWAYS be manifested and preserved in Jesus Christ and HIS One True Apostolic Catholic Church, despite heretical preachers like you, who have "come and gone" for over 2000 years---YET-----THE ONE TRUE CATHOLIC CHURCH established by Jesus Christ HIMSELF----------LIVES ON!!!----Because Jesus said it would in the Gospel of Matthew!!!!!

<quoted text>you don't remember very well.
I have quoted the Bible to Oxbore about one verse. and if you have problem with that, then you have problems that I cant fix.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
and Yes, the Bible is the Word of God, but don't let that bother you, no catholic believes that anyway.
the words from your homosexual priests and their pedophile cohorts carry much more weight than the Word of God.
and getting back to those secular achievements and what YOU perceive as great, here is what God Says.
for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.
NO SURPRISE THAT THIS VERSE AGREES(SPIRITUAL) TOTALLY WITH ME,
while you looked on the outside(secular)
Did you look up the word "secular" yet?

Theologians in ALL religions were busy myth-makers, paid to encourage people to follow their lines of enticing words.

The Aztecs had more than one "lord" as hoped-for saviors.

The devout Christians on this forum become angry at me for not believing in the words taught to them by their preferred theologians.
sorry, june but speaking for me and me alone, I want to say to you.

it is not my responsibility to MAKE you accept the Word of God. I would help you to understand His Word but Never would I force you to accept Him as your Savior.

that responsibility lies entirely in your hands, and the blood of your body and soul is not on the hands of those who have taught you better on this forum.

I for one will not give you a God Bless, if you choose to remain in darkness, Amen.

You can and do believe that YOUR religion offers the only truth to all people on earth.

But if you are HONEST ... you will see that all people who place high value on their own religious dogmas ... are in the same predicament as are you.

They have been lied to by the myth-making theologian who had NO right to teach that they knew truth ... but did so any-WAY they found possible.

It's how they earned their "keep."

You are one of the most vile sick human beings I've ever encountered. You are so far removed from Christianity that its difficult to identify the religion you preach.
Having said that, its still amusing watching you prove the catastrophe of sola scripture to you and your evangelical cohorts.
.. Mary is my spiritual Mother. I love her and respect her just like Our Lord Jesus Christ did. You do not understand the Bible. You do not understand what the Ark of the covenant that bore forth the word of God made flesh is. That most Holy Ark is Mary. Your twisted mind believes Joseph - a devout obedient Jew - would think its ok to have sex with this Holiest of Arks. This is why earlier Christians - who were also Jews- immediately realized that Mary was an untouchable Holy Ark.
You should also realize your words above greatly offend Jesus Christ as they would ANY of us, if someone spoke in that manner about our Moms.
Get help Ox.
Amen.
Evil despises what is Holy, and seeks to degrade and pervert it.
That's why oxie has such venom toward Mary.

That's not Catholic teaching.

I ask again. Where do you get that nonsense? Please give us one credible Catholic source.

You cannot because you are a troll. Muslim is my guess. Certainly you know little of Catholic teachings.
