Most of those that make this erroneous claim have in fact NEVER even studied the law in-depth.
How funny you are as you stand on your pedestal of nothing but fluff.

You might claim that you are not in the Catholic religion, but I suggest that the Catholic indoctrinations are still very much in YOU.

<quoted text>marge we are all guilty of(inserting foot in mouth at times). But you must know that illness and suffering comes to every household,some are attacks from Satan,and some are even tests from God.Most are the result of these bodies that wear out with age and much usage.
Personally I tend to believe that we all being of the same physiological makeup are bound to suffer ailments that we have no control over.It seems to fall of the Just and the unjust,the good,the bad the ugly as it were.So basically unless we have a profound insight as to where an illness comes from,it is better never to relate them to our spiritual condition.
I made the same judgment at times years ago,but I am convinced that only the Holy Spirit will reveal to the affected people what they are dealing with and for what reason.Yes the Enemy does attack our physical bodies,but God always uses that as a test to try our endurance and to CALL upon Him for help.We can in Jesus' Name speak against afflictions,and to ask that By His Stripes He will heal us.
We really do not have the last word on what God requires as faith in any given prayer.I make it a practice to never judge a prayer,unless of course a Christian is seeking the aid of a shaman or an occult practicioner,as in spiritism.
Pad says..........I made the same judgment at times years ago,but I am convinced that only the Holy Spirit will reveal to the affected people what they are dealing with and for what reason.

Michael says.....If 75% of mankind does NOT believe in the holy spirit, how would God affect their lives who seem to live no differently and suffer and recover from the same ailments as those who do believe in the holy spirit?

If christians believe that ONLY their pathway is right, why would God allow all the NON christians (the majority of mankind) to exist and peddle their beliefs if they are not most righteous?

REALLY ... then within the theology no-one NEEDS to pray to Jesus, or even acknowledge Jesus ... RIGHT???

Now, I'll also USE a scripture to make ME feel powerful.

But Jesus cried, and said: He that believeth in me, doth not believe in me, but in him that sent me.

God is my "final judge" regarding heaven---NOT you, not Confrinting, not Oxbow or "any other" bible only Protestant Propagandist. I'll continue to remain "true to my faith and salvation in Jesus Christ, in and through His One True Apostolic Catholic Church, with Daily Mass, the Eucharist, the TRUE WORD of God, the Sacraments and Confession with absolution. You can do and believe what you want--and that includes every bible only preacher on this forum!!
HOJO says....God is my "final judge" regarding heaven---NOT you.

Michael says.......If there was a way of knowing before hand that YOU HOJO were not going to make it to heaven what would you say about God then? Would you speak out?

Fear is what grips you. Fear of not doing exactly what your church teaches. Doesn't matter about all the scandals, the lies, deceit and coverups over the centuries, the burning of heretics or making them just mysteriously disappear. NOPE! doesn't matter to you, your church and its leaders can do no wrong.

Its obvious you are not about the truth, but only about appeasement.

.....very sad!

since God made the condition of salvation as simple as believing His Son, then i'd be VERY concerned with whether i believe Him or not - DUH!
Yes you would ... because you don't trust your image of a god to not punish you. And you don't want to spend eternity in hell, as your religion teaches is based on truth.

Religion placed a horrible blight on humanity.

Thankfully at least the other animals are religion-FREE!

You just contradicted yourself.

If (within the theology) god has all the power, then god has the final SAY. After all, Jesus was SENT by his father, Jesus did not send his father. Now that shows where the REAL power lies.

However, the Jewish father-god would not send his son to teach anything other than pure Judaism. You ought to wake up and recognize that issue.

Religion is silly!

What is the real purpose of prayer? Do people actually believe that praying to God is going to make God change his mind about what he has already set forth in his divine plan?

Christians are taught God created a divine plan for each of us. He figured it out, said it was a good plan, put the plan into operation. Ever since everyday BILLIONS and BILLIONS of prayers are beamed to Mary, Jesus, Holy Spirit, God the father, for the living, for the dead, for the sick, to change the weather forcast, pray for a safe trip, pray for a child, a grandchild.........etc.

I would believe God thinks, whats with all the man made prayers being mumbled by millions of people wanting me to change my divine plan to suit their own selfishness?

I never pray, I figure things out for myself. If it doesn't work, it wasn't meant to be.

Did you ASK to be created? Did you ASK to be born into a Christian religion? Did you ask to be ignorant, and arrogant with your haughty attitude that those who don't believe in Jesus will be lost to salvation?

DID you ASK permission, or were given the free will to be so stupid?

really where? I want to make this perfectly clear....I believe that praying to the Theotokos is a powerful prayer. But not as powerful as praying straight to Christ which is what I choose to do. Is that clear enough for you? Now I have to run and clear the cat litter box. Adios

<quoted text>And you would do good to look at yourself before making comments to nick like this. You are in NO position to tell Nick ANYTHING..Preston has been a true friend to us and was there for us when we needed Christian prayers and love. Where were YOU...He was the very FIRST person to personally email me to offer his support and HELP if I needed it. Where were YOU? Your actions and other Catholic's here have turned me away from your church big time.The Protestants here have showed us more love and support than any of you. Faith aside,a true Christian shows their faith,lives their faith. Has compassion for someone in spiritual needs. It doesn't matter what your faith is a TRUE CHRISTIAN is just there for you.And I will also add Confrinting and his wife were also a huge help to me. And since we are on the topic of ignorant human beings,whats your opinion of what marge said about nick and I going through the suffering now because we pray to dead people? Don't see you correcting her about that.So before you even think about trying to correct Nick, correct yourself.
I most definitely prayed for Nick and you. In fact, I pray for everyone on this forum from time to time. But like Preston said, my pray is to dead people. lol.
He's only friends with people who don't cross his path or agree with his biblical interpretations. You don't question him when he preaches a false gospel. So you guys are cool with each other.

As for me defending Marge? Of course I'm not defending her unguided theology. She's as ignorant as they come. Her saying something like she did about you and Nick is sick. I only defended her when your friend Presume said she is not a Christian and she's going to hell. That's all. He was correct in calling her out on her fanatic theology, but that's it. I'm sick of being told I'm going to hell by Confrint and Preston as if they take some delight in it. They aren't pastors called to preach the gospel and you know it.

I have never once in this forum ever claimed that those who did not believe in Jesus were lost in salvation. NEVER. So if you are going to correct ME personally get your facts right. Now if you want to make that statement about what the Orthodox church says,thats a horse of a different color.
