Wiccans are a crafty bunch in deed.

They welcome Christians into their cults, but when the Wiccans land behind bars, they don't want a Christian minister or priest preaching at them.

How funny and how transparent are their aims.

what other kind of lies have you been exposed to?
Yes I know. For $29.99 you can become an ordained minister who's recognized by the State of MN. I know someone who's doing it to perform their sisters wedding next summer. And the funny thing is, you can't say anything about it. They are as legit as anyone else who reads a bible and ordaines themselves.

You are simply arrogant enough to believe that your SELF aligns to the highest knowledge available to all humans.
You are right - my apologies.

Let me correct it.....

"to know yourself is to know the kingdom of Quetzalcoatl"

Is that better?

Oh I see now. Just because you don't think of yourself very highly in regards to being respectful and helpful to others, you have to include me in your projection.

uh-huh, sure.

My Self does align with "the highest knowledge to all humans".

Are you jealous?

try your best to learn and not depend on spam.
You only call Clement and Ignatius' letters 'spam' because they contradict you. You're not alone though, they contradict all of Protestantland and every man made doctrine y'all introduced after 1600 AD. If short, you've got no choice to ignore them if you want to save your reputation.

Wiccans don't have to abide by those rules.

They can just say "I am a witch, and let my will be done."

I suggest your religion is too much like "work" and that is why so many Christians are joining Wicca.

And besides ... the Wiccan goddess loves everybody.

I suggest that that is why Wiccans want their own preachers adorning them in prisons.

Which Wiccan in his her right mind wants to be informed that if he/she doesn't become a Catholic, or a Protestant ... the no-name god will reject them and they will have to spend eternity in hell?

THAT is a step backwards in the realm of mythical belief.

Everyone has to pay their dues to get into the positions people are in.

Inclusive of a priest converting to Wiccan.

a. The priest may not be qualified in Wiccan ceremonies in order to take that hat.
b. More than likely, the priest is very unknowledgeable in Wicca, which would also negate his ability to perform his duties in a role like that

With just these two characteristics - showing how priest would be disqualified to what you would expect - shows that you didn't think rationally and logically before you posted.

You really should do more research, instead of thinking what you know is accurate.

Sour grapes will make you a preacher with more threats of hell and damnation for others ... but it's all been done before. And today the Muslims are even more proficient with their threats than were and are the Christians.

Christian Villagers in Syria Face Dilemma about Taking up Arms

Mon 18 Nov 2013

“Will we arm ourselves against the nearby Sunnis? To get to us they have to first pass through all the neighbouring Alawite villages, and if they do manage to pass through and get to us, we won’t be able to fight them with the limited weapons we’ll have.”

“If we’re fighting the Alawite villages it means we’re fighting the whole government, and no matter how strong our weapons are, we can’t stand up to that. And we have to ask ourselves another question: who among us will carry these weapons? Who will willingly give them to their sons?”

His interjection finally calmed the debate.

When I was under the spell of religion, I believed the one god loved everybody equally.

I think there is a lot of conflict within a person. It stems from a period of time as a child, when without understanding, one processed information. Such information must be re-examined, as experienced when understanding develops.

However that lack of understanding when one is young, is not an excuse, merely a phase in developing experience and thought.

There is a then a need to unify, which often people become conflicted in, or do not seek to unify, and remain under-developed as mature human beings....

In the theocratic Muslim countries, Christian missionaries and their children as comparable to sitting ducks in a pond surrounded by duck-hunters.

And they are as hated by the Muslims, as would be expected, when they keep insisting that Islam is a false religion.

Until we rid the earth of religion ... the killing will not subside.

Religion is based on power plays.

You are an example with your blathering of SELF-dogma at every turn of the pages in your gnostic gospels.

One of the most underhanded humans with which I conversed on the threads of these forums was not a Christian, but rather was a Wiccan self-proclaimed witch.

Theology is all about blathering nonsense and that includes YOUR theology.

Muslim religion is a false religion made up by people who haven't a clue who God is..

Do you expect others to unify to Catholicism, as did your pope when he expected Anglicans to come running back to the Vatican to kiss his ring and other parts of his self-perceived holy body???

It isn't according to your theory - "religion is based upon greed".

What you say above is not.

It sounds more like YOU CHOSE to believe what you thought religion is supposed to be.

Religion by its division, can not unify.

The arrogance of each preacher in each individual cult makes it a certainty that religion stays divided.

The fact that the Christian religion alone has split into approximately 38,000 divisive groups ought to make it plain that religion is based on nothing but right-fighting egos, ever waiting and eager to attack those with different opinions.

Then why do you think religion rejects this needed component, yet promotes it throughout?
