I suggest that the search for truth has no special time of year.

If you want to praise your image of a savior ... those in church are there for you.

I don't disrupt your church service, but when you come on a forum, you should expect other opinions that disagree with your Catholic dogmas.

Microbe Hunters by Paul de Kruif … published 1926

Leeuwenhoek discovered the human sperm, and the cold-blooded science of his searching would have been shocking, if he had not been such a completely innocent man! The years went by and all Europe knew about him. Peter the Great of Russia came to pay his respects to him, and the Queen of England journeyed to Delft only to look at the wonders to be seen through the lenses of his microscopes. He exploded countless superstitions for the Royal Society, and aside from Isaac Newton and Robert Boyle he was the most famous of their members. But did these honors turn his head? They couldn’t turn his head because he had from the first a sufficiently high opinion of himself? His arrogance was limitless—but it was equaled by his humility when he thought of that misty unknown that he knew surrounded himself and all men. He admired the Dutch God but his real love was truth:

<quoted text>Yes He can and is, He is God.
Was Jesus being deceitful when he said that the Father was in heaven when in fact He dwelt on Earth? Was he putting on a show whenever he fell to his knees in prayer...pretending that there was a higher authority? Who was Jesus referring to in his last words that contained "why have U forsaken me?!" as he looked into the heavens? Himself?! Jesus spoke of himself sitting at the right side of the heavenly throne alongside the Father...who is this "Father"?! Jesus said that he does not serve his own purpose but the purpose of the Father. Jesus said that the judgment is carried out according not to his own will but the will of the Father. And Jesus said that he was himself promised his own heavenly kingdom for his sacrifice...being that he was to be "king" and his followers shall be his as a sheppard gathers his flock. THESE ARE EXAMPLES OF CLEAR DISTINCTIONS BETWEEN THE POWER OF GOD AND THE POWER OF JESUS AS 2 SEPARATE ENTITIES...ONE HAVING SOVEREIGN SUPREME POWER AND THE OTHER GIVEN POWER FROM THE ALMIGHTY TO CARRY OUT A PURPOSE...AS JESUS STATED THAT THE ONLY POWER THAT HE HAS IS WHAT WAS GIVEN TO HIM BY THE FATHER!!! U should polish up on comprehension skills if U can't understand and point out CLEAR DISTINCTIONS between 2 characters in a story. Let's use some logic....it would be like me saying "I'm my daddy's son AND I'm also my daddy!!" Does that sound right?!? Really think about how this could be possible!...but don't ignore the above examples I've given which could be found in the scriptures that clearly differentiates the boundaries of the 2. One is without bounds and the other is bound by the power of the other!

Philosophers kept changing the theologies in all the religions.

Liars ... one and all!

Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase & Fable by Ivor H. Evans … First published 1817.

Epact (Gr. epagein, to intercalate). The excess of the solar over the lunar year, the former consisting of 365 days, and the latter of 354, or eleven days less. The epact of any year is the number of days from the last new moon of the old year to the first of the following January, and used in determining the date of Easter.

You can rename yourself, make up a new title and give yourself a different designation of ANYTHING you want, but you my friend are "nothing more" than an (offshoot, extention or a branch) of the Protestant Reformation----------a rejector, a rebel, a defiant perpetrator against the Bibllical and Historical TRUTH of the ONLY TRUE CHRISTIAN CHURCH that was established, formed and initiated by Jesus Christ HIMSELF, over 2000 years ago. Over 2000 years ago, Jesus left His Apostles, disciples and followers HIS CHURCH----(not a bible). The CHURCH--HIS One True Universal Apostolic Catholic Church (came first)---then the bible---over 350 years later in 382, 393 and 397 AD which was the Canon of Scripture from the Early Church Fathers who gave us the bible, which you 21st century modernists Protestants interpret or better yet (mis-interpret) to your own "demise and destruction". In I Timothy 3:15 Paul in His letter to Timothy tell us that "THE CHURCH",(not the bible alone) is the pillar, pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH". There is ONLY ONE TRUTH, not 42,100+ contradictin, inconsistent and conflicting (personal opinionated) "relative truths" and that ONE TRUTH, has, is and will always be grounded and manifested in Jesus Christ, in and through His One True Apostolic Catholic Church (the Bride of Christ)

Chronology of American Religious History: 1600 - 2004

December 25, 1789 During the first Christmas under America's new Constitution, the Congress was in session. This fact may seem odd today, but at the time Christmas was no t a major Christian holiday. As a matter of fact, Christmas had a bad reputation among many Christians as a time of un-Christian excess and partying. Between 1659 and 1681, celebrating Christmas was actually illegal in Boston and anti-Christmas sentiment in the North prevented the day from becoming a national holiday until 1870.

In world war II, many Germans protected Jews from Hitler's reign of terror.

Anne Frank and family was just one example of such bravery on the part of Germans.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>

Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl.

There are a great number of organizations, such as “The Free Netherlands,” which forge identity cards, supply money to people “underground,” find hiding places for people, and work for young men in hiding, and it is amazing how much noble, unselfish work these people are doing, risking their own lives to help and save other. Our helpers are a very good example. They have pulled us through up till now and we hope they will bring us safely to dry land. Otherwise, they will have to share the same fate as the many others who are being searched for. Never have we heard one word of the burden which we certainly must be to them, never has one of them complained of all the trouble we give.

They all come upstairs every day, talk to the men about business and politics, to the women about food and wartime difficulties, and newspapers and books with the children. They put on the brightest possible faces, bring flowers and presents for birthday and bank holidays, are always ready to help and do all they can. That is something we must never forget; although others may show heroism in the war or against the Germans, our helpers display heroism in their cheerfulness and affection.

Disgree--fine!! But if you chose to disagree, it does not warrant, condemning, judging, attacking and ripping the faith of other Christians, the Churches they worship in and the Salvation of those who you disgree with. If you are that bitter, hatefilled and antagonistic then go live what you believe (or don't believe) on your isolated island of agnosticism, atheism or whatever you call yourself!!!

Einstein fled Germany because he understand what was going to befall the other Jews that chose to stay behind.

They waited too long after the writing was on the wall, and millions of them paid the price for trusting that Jehovah would come to their rescue.

However, their Jewish (imaginary god) was nowhere to be seen, as the trains took car-load after car-load of faithful Jews to the death-camps to reap their rewards for being HIS chosen few.

Religion is BUNK!

I didn't put a creator on trial as supposed did the Jews in the death camp. I just simply stopped believing that a creator exists.

Again and again, it is plain that the early church fathers preached that rather than coming to earth to preach Judaism as the only truth, Jesus, after being raised as a Jew, ultimately turned AGAINST the Jews and Judaism.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>

But at any rate the Jews say that they, too, adore God. God forbid that I say that. No Jew adores God! Who say so? The Son of God say so. For he said: "If you were to know my Father, you would also know me. But you neither know me nor do you know my Father". Could I produce a witness more trustworthy than the Son of God?

Within the theology ... had the Jews believed that Jesus was faithful to Judaism, they would have died FOR him. Make no mistake about THAT issue.

They would not have allowed anyone to kill the one they believed was THEIR messiah.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>

If, then, the Jews fail to know the Father, if they crucified the Son, if they thrust off the help of the Spirit, who should not make bold to declare plainly that the synagogue is a dwelling of demons? God is not worshipped there. Heaven forbid! From now on it remains a place of idolatry. But still some people pay it honor as a holy place.

John Chrysostom
