Miss ... or hit ... theology.

If Elohim is waiting for the perfected Jews in Olam Haba .... which god is waiting for the Catholics, Muslims and Protestants, to make their giant leap into their individual eternal "states?"

Gotta be honest Rose, I'm very confused with your post. My point to the St. Peter-in-Rome-denying protestants is that you cannot claim St. Peter was in Iraq when he writes Babylon and then say Babylon in Revelation refers to Rome.
That WAS,MY POINT ..possibly the,BABYLON ROME idea,comes,from.YOU GUYS,saying Babylon IS ROME regarding Peter

..IMO

Babylon in Revelation could be the,USA, or any powerful decadadant nation..or institution..or City .
And,Babylon earlier means,BABYLON.

NEITHER BEING ROME,..

Just a thought ...

I wonder if Gerald Gardner made it to the Summer lands. I hope if he is there, that the "place" is full of homosexuals tormenting him until he chooses a fast entrance back to earth to escape them ... at least for a while.

I suggest he needs to learn a lesson from the goddess that she loves everybody ... including homosexuals.

I am no expert on the State of Israel. But I think we here in the U.S., get pure propaganda about it.

In general, I think its coming about was due to the decline of the British, who wanted to keep it as a territory, but WWII weakened Britain to much. I think the U.S. had little to do with it. As I remember the U.S. even repelled Jewish immigrants. They had a hands off attitude, I think very similar to today.

I was in the Persian Gulf during the Yom-Kippur War, strictly observing on a ship. And I suspect that even though we sold arms to Israel, it was more for profit, than prophesy.

Certainly there are groups that are pro and con concerning Israel today here in the U.S. But I think the lack of information in the news makes most of the people ignorant and easily led in one direction or the other by those in control of the government/media.

what a comeback on your ideology.

first Peter writes that he is in Bablyon , and later Jesus tell JOHN about the city that sets on seven hills and that city engages itself in false religious doctrine that is devilish.

and many scholars are convinced that the word "whore: can be translated into the word "idolatress". and it certainly is indicative of your church with ALL of its idols present in your church.

The Lost Book of the Bibles.

Reprint of the 1926 ed. Published by World Pub. Co., Cleveland.

From the “The Lost Book of the Bibles, by Bell Publishing, New York, comes the following………..

The Apostles’ Creed.

It is affirmed by Ambrose,“that the twelve Apostles, as skillful artificers assembled together, and made a key by their common advise, that is, the Creed; by which the darkness of the devil is disclosed, that the light of Christ may appear.” 1 Others fable that every Apostle inserted an article, by which the creed is divided into twelve articles; and a sermon, fathered upon St. Austin, and quoted by the Lord Chancellor King, fabricates that each particular article was thus inserted by each particular Apostle:-

“Peter.- 1. I believe in God the Father Almighty;
“John.- 2. Maker of heaven and earth;
“James.- 3. And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord;
“Andrew.- 4. Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary;
“Philip.- 5. Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried;
“Thomas.- 6. He descended into hell, the third day he rose again from the dead;
“Bartholomew.– 7. He ascended into heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
“Matthew. 8. From thence he shall come to judge the quick, and the dead;
“James, the son of Alpheus.– 9. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy Catholic Church;
“Simon Zelotes.– 10. The communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins;
“Jude the brother of James.– 11. The resurrection of the body;
“Matthias.– 12. Life everlasting. Amen” 2

Archbishop Wake says:“With respect to the Apostles being the authors of this Creed, it is not my intention to enter on any particular examination of this matter, which has been fully handled, not only by the late critics of the Church of Rome, Natalis Alexander, 3 Du Pin, &c, but yet more especially by Archbishop Usher, 1 Gerard Vossius, 2 Suicer, 3 Spanhemius, 4 Tentzelius, 5 and Sam. Basnage, 6 among the Protestants. It is suffice to say, that as it is not likely, that had any such thing as this been done by the Apostles, St. Luke would have passed it by, without taking the least notice of it: so the diversity of Creeds in the ancient Church, and that not only in expression, but in some whole Articles too, sufficiently shows that the Creed which we call by that name , was not composed by the twelve Apostles, much less in the same form in which it now is.” 7

Rabbi Wise USED the Christian religion of Harry Truman to have Harry sign the papers so Israel would become an earthly STATE.

The Rabbi knew that the bible message from the perspective of the faithful Jews was simply about the Jewish people going to their homeland in Olam Haba in the hereafter ... but the Christian President Harry Truman thought that an earthly State had to be in place before "Jesus" would return to earth.

Rabbi Wise lived up to his last name. What a cunning Jew!!!

Rabbi Wise in Harry Truman's office, thinking ahead ... "That stupid Christian President thinks I believe in Jesus, but I know different. I don't even believe that the first messiah has yet come to earth. But if he will sign those papers that give us land now owned by the Muslims, I'll let him think whatever makes him happy."

YOUR POST #502548
Did you identify the pope Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger? The Rat who protected pedophiles is Wisconsin No, you did not. Here is your post #502548 in it's entirety.
The pope said:
"It is true that the Muslim world is not totally mistaken when it reproaches the West of Christian tradition of moral decadence and the manipulation of human life."
"It is deplorable that homosexual persons have been and are the object of violent malice in speech or in action. Such treatment deserves condemnation from the church's pastors wherever it occurs."
"Many people today lack hope. They are perplexed by the questions that present themselves ever more urgently in a confusing world, and they are often uncertain which way to turn for answers. They see poverty and injustice and they long to find solutions. "
"Yet if we refuse to share what we have with the hungry and the poor, we make of our possessions a false god. How many voices in our materialist society tell us that happiness is to be found by acquiring as many possessions and luxuries as we can! But this is to make possessions into a false god. Instead of bringing life, they bring death."
"The authority of the pope is not unlimited;"
"The cardinals have elected me, a simple and humble worker in the Lord's vineyard. The fact that the Lord can work and act even with insufficient means consoles me, and above all I entrust myself to your prayers."
“It is theologically and anthropologically important for woman to be at the center of Christianity. Through Mary, and the other holy women, the feminine element stands at the heart of the Christian religion.”
“If in my life I fail completely to heed others, solely out of a desire to be 'devout' and to perform my 'religious duties', then my relationship with God will also grow arid. It becomes merely 'proper', but loveless.”
“Listen to the voice of the earth...”
"the prevalence of a selfish and individualistic mindset which also finds expression in an unregulated capitalism"
AntonyMN said, quote, "Do you think the Muslims are wrong when they criticize us for abortion, rampant fornication, pornography, Hollywood, 60% divorce, high crime rates, etc?" End quote.
Are the Muslims perfect in their humanity? Do you believe killing Christians with car bombs is the solution to abortion, rampant fornication, pornography, Hollywood, 60% divorce, high crime rates. The Muslims kill their problems. Remember the World Trade Center? If a Muslim has a problem with a wife...they kill her. If the woman has an abortion...they kill her. Rampant fornication...kill them. Porn....kill them. Divorce...kill them. The Muslim answer.....MURDER....DEATH.... KILL....KILL...KILL.
AnthonyMN said, quote, "Do you know what malice is? Do you wish to physically harm homosexuals or hope they suffer?" End quote.
Do YOU know what malice is? Is it malice to to point them to the Bible so they can come to know homosexuality is a sin not an alternate life style? I believe it is MALICE not to tell them.
AnthonyMN said, quote, "And his "feminine" comment refers to the nature of women and motherhood as being caregivers, compassionate, empathic, etc." End quote.
Really? I don't think so. Is he saying men are not caregivers, compassionate, empathic, etc? The pope said women are at the center of Christianity. He does NOT say Christ is the center. He declares women are the center. In particular Mary.
I can read black print on white paper. No need for a PHD.

Christians are certain that "Jesus" loves only Christians.

How funny!

That's comparable to stating that the pope loves ONLY Protestants.

I suggest that an "honorable" Jewish Rabbi would be in a temple teaching Jews how to be good and faithful Jews.

Silly people make of religion whatever pleases their emotional STATES of stupidity!

All is fair in war and religion.

The Protestants and Catholics came to America under the pretense of following the will of "god."

They forced the Native Indians off their lands and forced them to convert to Protestantism and Catholicism.

So why blame the Jews for using their religion to attain the lands that were owned by the Muslims?

It seems that all is fair if ya use your religion to con others into believing that what you do is for a HOLY reason.

A History of Religious Ideas, by Mircea Eliade.

At the first ecumenical councils, only certain representatives of the “Pope” participated. That title was adopted by Siricius (384—99), who thus proclaimed himself the “father” and not the “brother” of the other bishops.

Wow. You should compete on Dancing with the Stars. Truly miraculous that a narcissist like you can keep his stories straight. I mean,since you're an apostle (for sure better than St. Peter), hasn't Jesus already told you directly what they meant? Why do you even need a bible?
