All Praise and Glory belongs to you, you alone are worthy.
Her supposed "gentle" heart, guided by her supposed "gentle" brain ALLOWED HER to be certain that Jesus loves only those (such as her) who worship him ... but will reject all others (the majority of the world's population)... because they don't believe in HIM."

GREED is the game played by those in religion.

The name of the game is ... if you mentally convince your selves that you own a savior that personally dotes on YOU, you are AHEAD in the game.

Selfish FOOLS!

Most importantly because it's the Truth. May God bless you June:)
Every fool in every religion believes that truth is owned by his/her brain-cells.

Your blight is nothing new. It's simply a form of arrogance wrapped in your hypnotic self-induced trance.

You are vain enough to believe that a Jew would disown other Jews to in turn FALL for your Christian blasphemy.

I for one will never reply to her again.
Scriptures are simply words USED by VAIN people.

If you believed that a creator loved everybody without scriptural strings attached, you would not WANT to USE those scriptures.

It's your GREEDY NEED to believe you are special that holds you in religious bondage.

I don't celebrate Christmas. Far too much blood was spread over the earth because of the belief in Jesus as a savior of ONLY Christians ... First Catholics and then Protestants.

Religion is BUNK!

If you can't be kind without religion, you certainly won't be kind when it owns your brain-cells.

The right-fighting of Catholics and Protestants on this forum is just a slight example of such egregious stupidity.

For if we are still practicing Judaism, we admit that we have not received God’s favor…it is wrong to talk about Jesus Christ and live like Jews.

Well I certainly agree on the fiction part .
What better way for either Religious,Jews,...or zealots...or Romans,..though it sounds,more like it comes from religious people who hated Christ
With good reason the Jews didn't believe that Jesus WAS the Jewish messiah.

But in your Christianized hypnotic mental state ... your mentality is too dumbed-down to understand WHY.

Yes His death is more important.
Do you believe (within the theology) that Jesus converted to Catholicism by his own will before he died on the cross... or that he did so after he died on the cross?

Catholics teach on one hand that Jesus was a Jewish Rabbi known as Rabboni (Supreme leader of Judaism)... yet on the other hand they teach that Jesus chose to be baptized by the Catholic Saint John in the river Jordan before Jesus died on the cross.

There is a huge lie living in your presence. I suggest you take a look at it and you will SEE!

I understand why you will ignore my question, as all other Christians on the forum have also ignored the same question. You don't WANT to think about it, as it will rock your boat, causing your boat to cap-size.

Everything in the Bible, even Jesus himself says he was an observant Jew.
He taught in Jewish Temples. If he ever claimed to be a god, that NEVER would have been allowed. The Jews were passionate about "one God." The Messiah was never, ever taught to be a god.
Yes, the Catholics stole their religion and then killed untold millions of Jews on behalf of their immoral god.
ONLY the Catholic church could have created a Hitler or a Mussolini. Protestants are too disorganized.
When the Jews wouldn't follow Martin Luther's new religion, he also became a hater of Jews, and to a certain degree, that rubbed off on his followers.

However, the Catholics put more gusto into their hatred of Jews than did the Protestants, because Protestantism came earth in the sixteenth century, in an era when the Christian religion was so divided within itself that the laws by necessity were changing to try to stop the Christians from killing each other.

In early Christianity it was the Catholics against the Jews, and that became the reason for centuries of slaughter by the Catholics that were given full power over all other religions in the Roman empire to follow their own wills.

The popes ordered the tortures, the imprisonments and the murder of any group that dared to disagree with Catholic doctrine. And the Jews were left at Catholic mercy ... which was never intended by the ex-Jew Catholics to be forthcoming.

To preach for all those centuries that a Jew named Jesus worked in their confessionals forgiving sins of Catholics would make any Jew on earth grit his teeth at the audacity of such preaching.

I hope that the Jews don't hold grudges ... because if they do ... the Catholics best beware that the tide of brutality might turn and go the other direction.

I suggest that when the Jews watch the pope blathering about love of Jesus, they sneer at his audacity to mention the word love in the same sentence as the word Jesus.

I'm not a Jew, and it makes me wonder how the popes pulled the wool over so many people's eyes for so many centuries without the tide turning in the other direction.

Of course because of the Catholic holdings the power, those that dared to question were immediately silenced and referred to as "heretics" ... offenders of "GOD" ... blah, blah, blah.

The history of all religion is VILE and nothing of which to be proud.

Even the idiot-nudist Gerald Gardner USED his new Wiccan religion to vilify homosexuals because of his own homophobia ... as he maintained that the goddess curses homosexuals.

I suggest that all humans are bullies by nature ... but religion gives bullies self-perceived JUST reason TO bully and they took and still take full advantage of the USE of words in those man-created BOOKS to keep on bullying.

There is no bully with the POWER of a religious bully ... as the bully always preaches that the god ordains the bullying.

"God says that YOU are going to hell, and 'I' am destined for heaven! SO THERE!!!"

While Christian-preachers believed that they were busy serving "god" by burning people at the stake, they were using the same bible to preach that homosexuals and prostitutes, et cetera were offending "god."

Such insanity was rife in religion, and still exists in many mindsets today.

I suggest that if religion was based on anything good whatsoever, people would never brag about their abilities to be fortune tellers concerning a supposed hereafter.

I don't know what will occur in the next moment ... much less if anything out of the ordinary will occur after I die.

And I won't join a religion to in turn pretend that I DO know the answers to such mysteries.

Religion is based on a whole lot of anxiety and stupidity.

Having been caught under the spell of religion, I fully understand that it brings a sense of security in the idea that a creator exists as a pal when in need of comfort.

But I never understood the mindset of people in religion who could believe that a creator would love them and reject others.

That was a thought I was "thankfully" never willing to entertain.
