The Horrible Vision: Only Too Real
Once again, let us recall the terrible and realistic description which Sister Lucy traces for us in her Memoirs:(1)
As Our Lady spoke these last words, She opened Her hands once more, as She had done during the two previous months. The rays of light seemed to penetrate the earth, and we saw as it were an ocean of fire.
Plunged in this fire were demons and souls in human form, like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished bronze, floating about in the conflagration, now raised into the air by the flames that issued from within themselves together with great clouds of smoke, now falling back on every side like sparks in a huge fire, without weight or equilibrium, and amid shrieks and groans of pain and despair, which horrified us and made us tremble with fear.(It must have been this sight which caused me to cry out, as people say they heard me.)
The demons could be distinguished (from the souls of the damned) by their terrifying and repellent likeness to frightful and unknown animals, all black and transparent.
This vision lasted only a moment, thanks to our good Heavenly Mother who, at the first apparition, had promised to take us to Heaven. Without this promise, I think we would have died of fright. Now since when did the orthodox take the bible like the *born again* protestants. I don't think they ever did.

I don't believe in the existence of a god. And the word "authority" is your projection ... not mine.
I am a learner, and learners do not claim authority.
On the other hand those in religion claim to have authority in the attitude of owning the one and only truth in the universe.
I suggest that you are all barking up the wrong tree.


.... People of religious belief can treat other people like crap and do whatever reprehensible things they desire (as often as they desire) but as long as they ask forgiveness and believe really, really hard, "grace" will keep them safe. Imagine!

How funny!
Catholic ... "I am saved and you are going to hell."
Protestant ... "NO, NO, NO ... I am saved and YOU are going to hell."
Jew ... "Neither one of you are saved, and you will both end up in the fiery pits of Gehenna for being so wicked as to not obey Jehovah's will."
....and all this self righteousness, simply because one is born by chance into one of these beliefs, and their belief is taught to them to be the right belief.

Anthony,
My wife had a very bad dat yesterday. Our little white Chihuahua got under the fence and ran away. She searched and search. Thank God a man called, found him, and read the number off the color.She doesnt really believe that everything on Cath sites are lies.
Sometimes the aging Bull in my wife's Spanish temperment gets loose and she starts charging everything in site.She really is a very kind, compassionate person. The best. Just very very passionate.
As for me , I get a lot of good stuff from Cath books and sites. Some of course I disagree with. A lot of good. But some I must admit seems to stretch things.Thats my judgment.Bad and goos. Same stuff in Orthodoxy and Catholicism- bad, good, extremists, revisionists. But we always have Christ.
Nick says......I get a lot of good stuff from Cath books and sites. Some of course I disagree with.

Michael says.......so what is it from catholic books you disagree with?

<quoted text>The "Protest"ants came alive as Martin Luther exposed the adoption and acceptance of pagan practices within the church. It wasn't to compete for power with the pope...it was a "protest" against the church and Martin Luther had enough backing to lead this so-called breakaway from practices such as the worship of other gods, i.e. Mary, St. Peter, St. Michael, St.Paul, etc. That's why they are referred to as the "Protest"ants. The entire movement was a protest and not one's own agenda for power, even though eventually it ended up as such.
Religion was and IS all about competing for power.

As a monk Martin Luther had no power. But as the leader of a new religion, he had an abundance of power.

The ex-Jews that started the Christian religion also pulled the same stunt. They had no power under the all-powerful Jewish Rabbis, but as leaders of the new religion, they held the power over others.

If a man named Jesus fed 5,000 hungry people, why wouldn't he have fed all the hungry people?

If a man named Jesus miraclized one blind man, why wouldn't he have created sight for all blind men/women/children?

....The pathway to truth lies in very careful study of reality, not the hopes and dreams of our fallible minds.

ďGodís Bullies,Ē by Perry Deanne Young.

In the name of Jesus and God, they had perpetrated all kinds of little cruelties on others and had meanwhile fooled themselves into thinking they could do no wrong because they were always carrying out Godís will.

Each new religion vilified the ones that came before it, and in turn, the ones that came after it.

Otherwise how could that one religion brag of owning a creator's TRUTH???

I suggest that it wasn't in Marin Luther's dictating mindset that religion should be separated from government ... but inadvertently, what he stated might have had some effect on the thoughts of others TO at least try to separate religion from government.

Reformation

At the beginning of the Protestant Reformation, Martin Luther articulated a doctrine of the two kingdoms. According to James Madison, perhaps one of the most important modern proponents of the separation of church and state, Luther's doctrine of the two kingdoms marked the beginning of the modern conception of separation of church and state.

Why does Earth spin?

.......Earth spins because of the way it was formed. Our Solar System formed about 4.6 billion years ago when a huge cloud of gas and dust started to collapse under its own gravity. As the cloud collapsed, it started to spin. Some of the material within this cloud gathered into swirling eddies and eventually formed into planets. As the planets formed, they kept this spinning motion. This is similar to what you see when skaters pull in their arms and spin faster. As material gathered in more closely to form a planet, like Earth, the material spun faster. The Earth keeps on spinning because there are no forces acting to stop it.
