I suggest you just stop plagiazising other peoples work and posting it on here.
Nothing you post comes from your only thoughts but what others have written.
Its not anyone elses fault but your own that you have become a bottom feeder, feasting on garbage rather sitting at the Lord's table and feast on the banquet He has set before us .
You made your choice June, you can still change your mind, we serve a loving forgiving God.

Your self-serving Christian philosophy makes claims of truth as does the philosophy of all preachers in various religions.
If you were a Muslim, you'd be preaching Islam as the only truth on earth.
It's unfortunate that you don't want to see that issue from the outside in.

Since you are an atheist, you are preaching it as the only truth on earth.

The difference IS, I am joking and YOU are serious.
You honestly believe that you and "Jesus" had and have the same beliefs.
How funny.
The truth is - I could care less what you think others believe.

IMO it is because of your own insecurities within your own life.

From my perspective - I don't believe a life-long "Christian" can't just automatically jump the train and believe like you do, because we all already know, you don't even have any proof to what you say or believe.

And being a "Christian" for so long as you have, I highly doubt it would take more than just a post saying "I am an Atheist". In fact far from it.

IMO - your ruse is all for yourself. When you can start being honest that you don't know what is to become of us, then I will begin to drop my speculations about you still being a so-called "Christian".

Until then.....go and push your mantra and love for Jehovah to some unsuspecting apologist - as your tactic doesn't work on me.

I went to our men's Bible study last night. We are studying Samuel and we came across this verse. It's a prayer from Hannah 1 Sam 2:
There is none holy like the Lord
for there is none besides you;
there is no rock like our God.
**I thought of catholics with their claim about Peter being the rock and now you post the samething...funny stuff.
Hannah gets it...why don't catholics
Matthew 16:18
And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

<quoted text> You are very wrong. Christ founded the Holy Catholic Church . Saint Peter was the first pope. It's in the bible and history books.
The Bible supplies no evidence that Peter ever reached Rome; rather the contrary. The Roman Catholic claim that Peter was in Rome from 42 to 67 A.D. is soundly discredited by the following facts:

The apostle Paul was saved about 37 A.D. "After three years" he visited Peter at Jerusalem. Gal. 1:18. Then Peter spent some time in a missionary journey to Lydda, Saron, Joppa and Caesarea. Acts 9:32-42; 10:1. Next mention of Peter is in Acts 15, that he spoke at the conference held in Jerusalem, of which incident Paul wrote in Galatians 2:1 that "after fourteen years" since his first visit to see Peter he "went up again to Jerusalem." It is now about 54 A.D. and Peter is still in Asia Minor) where Paul "withstood him t the face" for his inconsistent walk. Galatians 2:11-14.

More proof against Peter residing in Rome is to be seen in that Paul, writing to Christians in Rome, made no mention of Peter and when writing from Rome about 64 A.D., he made no mention of Peter in any or his epistles. During Paul's last days there, about 67 A.D., he wrote , "Only Luke is with me." 2 Tim. 4:1.

Bible scholars are generally agreed that Peter wrote his first epistle in 64 or 65 A.D. He wrote from "Babylon." 1 Peter 5:13. There was no reason to make this name an allegory, as though in meant Rome, in Italy. Peter, being sent "to the circumcision" (Israel, Gal/ 2:9), had many such to minister to at Babylon where many Israelites lived ever since the nation went into captivity there about 600 B.C.

Significantly, we know of no writer in the first two centuries of the Christian era who wrote of Peter sojourning in Rome. To think that "history," either secular or religious, supports this tradition is pure deception. Only the Bible contains inspired history and is therefore unquestionably accurate in all its information about Peter.

It should be clear then to all who humbly desire the truth that the persistent claim of the so-called "Roman Catholic Church" that it is founded on Peter as its "rock" foundation and "first Pope of Rome" has no biblical support whatever. Christ's true church contains all who are saved (Acts 2:47), so it is universal (catholic) but not "Roman" nor "Greek" nor "Protestant." It has no earthly distinction other than that it began in Jerusalem. It is the body of Christ." Ephesians 1:22, 23. Laying aside traditional surmisings about Peter let us rather make sure whether we shall arrive where Peter now is, in heaven above. Eternity is coming! Please read 2 Peter 1:10 and 1 John 5:9-13 with 1 Cor. 15:1-5.

Yes I do preach the idea that I don't know if life continues after death, as being the one and only truth on earth.

You believe the afterlife of eternal bliss is assured for YOU. And from my perspective ... that takes an awful lot for granted. You not only insist that a creator exists, but also that it exists to love you and reject others who don't believe they way YOU believe.

The AUSCP as are the many others that have sprung up in the past 3 years. The ACP in Ireland, Wales, Australia, England are reform groups of catholic priests expressing their views of the direction of the catholic church. One issue is, they want reform in the Papal office. They also support and standbye the more than 40,000 nuns in america who are under investigation by the Vatican.

These roman catholic priest REFORM groups have caught on very quickly. Time will tell how many more countries will adapt to their causes and concerns.
I thought you protestants thought reform was a wonderful thing. You all are constantly doing it.

To suggest that you don't know if you are saved, shows DOUBT, and doubt will result in rejection by the supposed God ... so doubt is a NO-NO!!!

You must be certain that the god believes you are the stuff of salvation ... period! That is how the theologians caught you in their web of lies. And that is what still holds you in their web of lies.

You left the Church because you wanted to be on the pill, you said so yourself. The pill is an aboertifacient and nothing will change that either.

I suggest that all devout Christians are certain that Jesus sees "truth" the same way as does each devout believer.

It can't BE any other way. If they thought that Jesus disagreed with them, they would have to conclude that they were wrong. And that would mean that their religion let them down.

It's as simple as that.

Each and every Christian ... "Jesus lives, and he thinks exactly as I think."
