If you believe in heaven and hell, then God and Satan must be working together,Gen.3:19 in the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken, for dust you are and to dust you will return.
(Growing old is our punishment for sin)Romans.6:7 for he who has died has been acquitted from sin.
God bless.

KayMarie says.........America did not start wars in other countries...she went to the aid of Europe when they were being destroyed by Hitler. She went to the aid of Asian countries that were being attacked by communism.
Michael says........Really!
below the list of wars the USA has been involved in.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wars_inv...
.....How many countries in the world like america today? Not many. How many american lives and the trillions in costs have been lost not counting millions of innocent men, women and children in often needless conflicts.

----------
Other countries are jealous of America's luxury, and her status. The Arabs would wipe us off the map if they could.

You still believe a lot of fables. Wikipedia is not a great study, and everything in it is not 'gospel truth'.

Many of those 'many wars' were simply INTERIOR bouts with marauding Indians. There was cruelty on both sides. America settled those, AND brought them to an end. That is why that you and I have as much Indian blood as any other kind. It is why that this country came to be called The Melting Pot...the UNITED States.

If you don't like it, there are lots of other countries...

What on earth makes you think Protestants,have no good,works. One example

http://www.samaritanspurse.org/

These,folks,at every disaster ...in some really bad places,like,Darfur ..in Texas US, HAITI..THAILAND...
working now in Christmas,boxes,for thE poor ..rebuilding after the bombing in Texas,..after the tornadoes

My local crisis,Pregnancy center ..

For two .

Many many organizations,missionaries..ma rtyrs,..spreading hope ..God ..material goods..bibles.

You think only Catholics,do good works,??

The thing is,GOOD,WORKS,..NOR ANYTHING WE DO can have us,work our way into heaven .

Jesus,paid the ONLY PRICE for sin that SATISFIED the perfect Justice requirements of God ..

He said IT IS,FINISHED ...

If we do good it is,from.love for HIM.or FOR OUR NEIGHBORS...

Romans 5:12 That is why ,just as through one man sin entered into the word and death through sin,and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned.
(That's why we will grow old and then die,ones dead,)

Being married to you I thought I knew a depth of love that was the truest and deepest one could ever know.
But then after I got sick I found that there is a deeper love.
A love that does not fade, but blooms in the face of suffering.
A love that will stay by her husband's bed side every day for weeks despite, the pain and fear, when he is on the edge of dying.
A love that will rise without complaint in the middle of the night no matter how exhausted to help her husband.

All of the good works that Teresa did CANNOT 'save' her. Jesus died to 'save' all who would believe in Him.

We are called to 'good works', and there will be rewards/crowns for those.

If we could have been saved by doing good things, Jesus' suffering would have been unnecessary. Isaiah said that "all of OUR righteousness is as filthy rags..."

who="Hermeneutics Smutics" Pope Paul VIs 1968 Encyclical Humanae Vitae brought out the procreative dimension more explicitly:
Each and every marital act must of necessity retain its intrinsic relationship to the procreation of human life....This particular doctrine, often expounded by the magisterium of the Church, is based on the inseparable connection, established by God, which man on his own initiative may not break, between the unitive significance and the procreative significance which are both inherent to the marriage act.
St. Thomas Aquinas and the Council of Trent explain that the goals of the marriage are two: the primary goal is the procreation and education of the offspring; the secondary goal is the mutual support of the spouses, either psychologically or as a remedy for concupiscence (Summa theologiae, Supplementum, Q. 67, a. 1, ad 4th; Catechism of Trent, Part II, VII, 13-14).
Pope Paul VI in his encyclical "Humanae Vitae" stated, "Each and every marriage act must remain open to the transmission of life (No. 11). The Holy Father continued, "This particular doctrine, expounded on numerous occasions by the Magisterium, is based on the inseparable connection, established by God, which man on his own initiative may not break, between the unitive significance and the procreative significance which are both inherent to the marriage pact" ("Humanae Vitae," No. 12).
Historically, procreation has been a central, if not the central, purpose for marriage. Justin
Martyr of the second century felt that the desire to procreate was the only thing that legith a sense of human and Christian responsibility."[154]
----------
In our current 'imagined' freedom, we are committing national suicide. Having two children barely replaces ourselves. Many have one, or none. Over fifty million abortions has destroyed our armed forces. We don't have the means to protect ourselves. It has reduced us from a mostly white Christian nation (I'm not racist) to something that looks like a third world country, over-run with refugees from everywhere.
Our Social Security program that once allowed seniors and those otherwise deprived, to stay out of the 'poorhouse', was SPENT by Congress, with a promise to repay. It must have been quite a sum, because interest rates at the time were over 20%. They put PAPER IOU's in 'safe' places, and never repaid.
When SS was instituted there were about 30 young people paying into the system to each one person who was dependent on it. Now, abortion has changed that rate...there are about 3 young people paying in for each dependent.
To make it worse, illegal aliens are feeding off the system, and they say that SS is going broke...but they are blaming that on senior citizens.

Ahhh the famous lock box ...

Children diagnosed with ADD etc receive a salary from Disability ..I'M ALL FOR A,SPECIAL PROGRAM TO EDUCATE THESE,CHILDREN ..But an INCOME ...make a,no sense ...

My understanding was,Disability REPLACES. lost income,from people,who

I know,a,lady worked 20 years,had carpal tunnel. And arthritis,to the point things fell out of her hands ..Denied for 8 years ..finally I told her ..call your Senators,office ..She found an advocate and finally got it .

Another lady she has been on it for decades,for depression..,
I'M DEPRESSED at this craziness,..You can also be a,drug addict ..alcoholic. total disability ..I can see it as a,temporary thing ..a few,months,Rehab .

John Stossel did a report . Showed the drug dealers,waiting out side the places where they got their checks ..NOW,they get money directly .

Both Islam and Christianity should lead their people to a lower crime rate. Yes.
The largest Christian country on the planet only 300 yrs ago (France) is not even Christian anymore. And the least Christian one, Argentina, is the largest. Things change. Religious affiliation doesn't guarantee anyone will resemble that religion they preach.
The only important thing (and I believe its the will of God) is that everyone gets a chance to make a choice.

If the shoe fits ... I suggest people wear it.

A baby to a family that is already starving becomes a headache FOR the family.

How do you expect them to feed another child, when they haven't enough for the ones that they already have in their families.

For those who have plenty, I say good for them if they take in more ... but otherwise "knock it off" with the sanctimonious nonsense, that more babies are all peaches and cream to those who are already starving.
