<quoted text>That's one of the misconceptions taught by Christians and Catholics. One could live a life of good deeds while not praying and worshipping God and still find favor and would be considered worthy of eternal life. It is when a good person DENIES God and CURSES the existence of God and His name that renders a persons good deeds worthless. Listen, according to the scriptures this is the only sin which God will not tolerate or overlook...but given His revealed nature He may forgive someone that is sincere in their repentence. And remember, "repent" means to turn away from sin and not "to ask forgiveness"...so, like I was saying, we don't have to be praying day and night rigorously (but if we choose to practice, proceed in His name), just as long as we don't CURSE His very existence because to do so we would be cursing our own.
Seriously no one has any evidence or proof (its just your belief) that what happens to you when you die is no different than what happens to me and everyone else. IF there really is a loving God I can't believe he would create Billions of people then sort us out like some kind of game...... your good your bad, you are good you are bad.

Fear is what motivates people to believe. Fear of failure, fear of an eternity of fire. Religious leaders learned long before the name Jesus was ever mentioned, that instilling FEAR can make people do just about anything you want them to. Marketing 101.

Wrong again!

You tell me what I posted is incorrect? All facets of life have good and bad, and we learn from both good and bad, when people don't want to hear or know about the bad, or do anything about the bad, then that is where the problem lies.

I have no issue with the church. I can't see how preachers of the faith can honestly stand up every sunday pointing their fingers at everyone sitting in front of them telling them how they are to live their lives and be good, while all this crap has been going on behind the scenes for centuries committed by them.

You want to clean up the mess in the church? SPEAK OUT ABOUT IT. We do that with everything else.......but for some reason religious people have this built in FEAR that we can't.

that is what is SAD!

All one has to do is GOOGLE Catholic sex abuse (pick any country) hundreds of abuses pop up. GOOGLE (any city) catholic sex abuse and they pop up for any city in america over 5,000 people.
Doesn't this confirm there has always been a perverted sub culture within the catholic clergy? I mean really!! the evidence is there and its crystal clear.
Some of those priests might be completely innocent of molestations, but there are huge cash benefits in it for those who win the cases in court.

Crystal clear is a phrase that has lead many a judge astray of how scenarios actually unfolded.

I suggest that the smell of money has a strong odor.

Many people in and not in religion were put to death by judges that didn't know truth.

HOJO says......Michael!! Your vindictiveness, hostility and hate against the Catholic Church.
Michael says.....Ever read any of your own posts you make towards protestants with your name calling and insults?
You live in a little bubble. You hate protestants, I read your posts, you hate liberal catholics, you hate the american catholic nuns because many of them have higher educations than their bishops and they spend too much time helping the poor and not speaking against abortions. You live in a tiny little bubble world.
Thats it! You are the bubble boy.
Wrong again Michael, which is "nothing new' to me or any other Catholic on this forum. I don't hate ANYONE! I dislike the "innappropriate, condemning and judgemental (actions) of those persons (like yourself) who is on this forum for "one purpose--and one purpose only. To spread their anti-catholic hostility, defiance and vengeance against Jesus Christ HIMSELF and the Catholic Church that HE initiated over 2000 years ago. This is just your own "bogus opinionated" way of attempting to undermine those of us Catholics who believe, follow and adhere to the TRUE TEACHINGS of Jesus Christ, in and through HIS One True Catholic Church. Protestants on this forum and around the world, our are brothers and sisters in Christ and unfortunately, YOU Michael, have "rejected" both of these Christian beliefs, by your OWN hate for the Christian faith!!!

Which rituals or beliefs didn't you like when you were a Protestant that finally "guided" you into Catholicism?
June

Seriously, I must laugh.

Most all Protestant rituals developed out of the RCC, or as a reaction to the RCC....Then time went on and all got muddled. And most got be-fuddled, like me. Then the search began.

My journey started in time, and went backwards to find the "old ways", the old path, as Jeremiah wrote. Those are the best....(Jeremiah 6 16 "Thus says the LORD, Stand you in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it, and you shall find rest for your souls....)

Man is a Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion - several of them. He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself and cuts his throat if his theology isn't straight. He has made a graveyard of the globe in trying his honest best to smooth his brother's path to happiness and heaven.

When Art Linkletter asked a little boy about five years old what he was drawing, he said he was drawing a picture of God. When Art said he thought people didn’t know what God looked like, the little boy replied,“They will when I’m done.”

Well, if you go farther back than Catholicism, you'll find Judaism and then you can worship Jehovah ... the ONLY god in the Abrahamic religion.

I understand that YOU idolize the Catholic church fathers such as John Chrysostom, who was a Catholic VILE HATER of Jews.

And I understand that you are certain YOU will end up in heaven, while the unfortunate ones end up in hell.

I suggest that if by chance a god did exist that loved the Christians when they killed each other on his behalf ... the god is indeed malicious.

Religion's child

Aware of light and yet condemned to grope

Through dark regression's cave, told she must find

Life's purpose in that blackness, without hope,

Denied the luminescence of her mind

Until, at last, she finds the darkness kind,

Religion's child--a babe once bright and fair,

Curls up, silences her mind, and recites her prayer.
