Some of us are believers that do not choose to practice any religion. Religion is not mandatory to go to Heaven, actually I think it makes the fact that one will make it to Heaven even more likely. Religion is something man came up with as a means to control the people. Catholics were the first to really take it to an extreme. Man chose the books of the Bible, leaving out all books written by woman and all books that didn't say what they wanted the people to know about or believe. I see no point in dealing with a "middle man" like a church or religion. One can have a relationship with their God directly, no need to use a religion that doesn't tell you the truth anyway.
nice...

And what, may I ask, is your relationship to Christ?

Aside from fable, I have never found any documentation that puts Peter and Paul in Rome at the same time either.

God and I can handle evil without some middle man. The church alone is not the only way to know God either or to praise him. And if not for JESUS.....not religion, no one would know of God. Like I said, you CAN believe without religion. I believe in God and in Jesus and his resurrection.....I DO NOT believe religion serves God and HIS interest, at least not ONLY HIS interest.
So then...from Ge 1:1 until Christ was born of Mary...no one knew God!!!!????

There IS only ONE Abrahamic GOD ... and unless you are inferring that he is fickle by serving your Christian religion ... he is faithful ONLY to the Jews and Judaism in its purest form.

That was the original Abrahamic theology ... that no man (or woman) if they are "wise" ... should break ASUNDER.

There is no argument, there is nothing to discuss and there is nothing to deliberate, because the TRUTH of Gods Word has been revealed as TRUTH over 2000 years ago and we as Catholics "already know" where that TRUTH of the TRUE WORD OF GOD, is, has been and will always be and it is in Jesus Christ, the WORD OF GOD "made flesh" that HE gave us in Matthew 16:13-21, which is manifested in and through HIS One TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church...... It is "most definitely" NOT in your Protestant (man-made" bible only "half-truth, half-heretical" 42,000 (RELATIVE TRUTH) opinions!!! Keep, tying to convince yourself, truth, but it will be to no avail,(as you desperately --keeping "bible verse (spinning in circles) because the fact is that even (the majority) of your other 41,999 other self-opinionated "fundies" don't agree with you either. You, truth, are like Peter before his true conversion to Jesus Christ!
YOU FISH---and CATCH NOTHING!!!! That is until hPeter, eventually came to (his senses) and to the TRUTH of the TRUE WORD OF GOD, made flesh, when HE appointed Peter (to be HIS (earthly representative) over 2000 years ago, to lead HIS APOSTOLIC CATHOLIC CHURCH, until HE (Jesus) returned for the 2nd time!!!! Get it yet truth!!!!
So then...you are saying your pope is a bald face liar...he approved the NABre which states: Church: this word (Greek ekkl&#275;sia) occurs in the gospels only here and in Mt 18:17 (twice). There are several possibilities for an Aramaic original. Jesus’ church means the community that he will gather and that, like a building, will have Peter as its solid foundation. That function of Peter consists in his being witness to Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of the living God.

It do not say one thing about the Catholic church....which is a denomination...which Christ never built!!!!

Without the knowledge of those theologians & priests how do you know that what you believe as truth and not satan slipping these ideas into your head. Some yrs. back there was a guy named Son of Sam, he was a mass murderer and said the voices in his head (he said was God)told him to kill those people. do you think this guy could tell good from evil?
Religion is not a "middle man" but a vessel to carry us through. Lets start to think outside the box for once.
One can belief what ever they want, this is still America isn't? Truly happy to hear of your belief in God and that you understand the resurrection stuff. religion does not serve God but could be in place as a service to God.

AWWWWWW hojo ... you know as well as do all others that you believe you speak FOR GOD.

But remember that the Jews that broke away from polytheism (belief in many gods) were the ones to start the one-god dogma. And they had first and rightful dibs as claiming they were Jehovah's ONLY chosen few.

It wasn't polite of the Christians and Muslims to HORN in on the emotions of the one god and try to get him to commit adultery with them ... when he was already totally invested in marriage ONLY to the faithful Jews.

Isn't religious theology FUN hojo???

The "ALL???" Is that a fancy name for your preferential imaginary deity???

I wonder what the first hairy humans in their imaginary fantasies used for a title?

Why don't you prove to me that your "ALL" exists ... while the Abrahamic God Jehovah does NOT exist?

There never has been one shred of evidence (except in imagination gone wild) that a creator exists.

Yet humans keep having faith that the figmented gods and goddesses of their own imaginations are REAL.

These humans are not willing to wait until they die to find out what (if anything) occurs after death.

What a shame that humans are so impatient, they choose to fight in defense of their own religious dogmas ... while vilifying the dogmas of others.

Until humans admit they are not fortune tellers, the nasty games that prove nothing ... will continue on and on and on.

Thanks for your efforts (and those of Marge), but it's unimportant. Maybe just say a prayer for her conversion to a more charitable frame of mind and heart.

I am so busy with work and so on,that I barely can get on here anymore.Had much to catch up on,since I spent 6 weeks on Medical.My bones are getting tired,am 65,and it is starting to show.By the way I agree with your post here.It is so true that in all Christian circles there are those who cheat on their wives,live in sin,and bring shame to the rest of us.
God is still on the Throne,and He will take care of His own. We are made righteous through our High Priest who is the O N L Y ONE that was Spotless,pure from sin,and there was no guile to be found in His mouth. In the Person of Jesus the beleiver has the grace and the opportunity to walk in righteousness and truth,so when we do that,we are in HIS standing,no longer ours.
When we walk in our own strength we are in our own standing,and there is no spiritual dynamic of His Person to stand with us.The High Priest of our own soul is Jesus Christ alone,and He not only stood in the Holy of HOlies as it were before His Father,He was the supreme sacrifice,the LAMB of God,so in H I M we have our being as true sons and daughters of the Most High.How do we share that with humanity? Well, with much cost,we must L I V E it,because our actions will prove louder than our words that we belong to the Righteous ONE who laid down His life for ALL!
I share these things not because I am a know it all,but to plant a seed in the mind of those who read so that they will not seek eternal truth from other men,but from Jesus the Christ Himself who is the T R U T H! If people continue to reject,they are missing out on the greatest event known to all human life,the Resurrection of Christ in their mortal bodies!
It is never easy to follow Christ,but His YOKE is placed upon us,that is light,because Jesus carried the weight of it,while we are joining Him in bearing the YOKE.His Burden is light,His Yoke is Easy,and Jesus carries it with us,that is why we are able to bear it.You have encountered that in your life HS.and that is a living testimony of who and what He is both in your life,and to others who view it!Take care.Have to get ready for work.DAN!

Is that really what you meant to say, Dan, that all those sinful people are reflecting badly on you??

Naw nothing like that at all.

Hollywood is about all we have left and Canada has an eye on it like a hungery wolf.
