Then I suggest you start accepting that within your theology the spirit of god is half good and half evil ... and that you take the evil portion for your self ... just for a change of pace.

1 Cor 2:14 The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.

Awww now I suggest that you don't pretend to be humble at this late date, especially after claiming that you jumped from Protestantism into Catholicism as being the better "option" for you.

Are you a natural person?

What exactly is the meaning of "natural" as it is used in this passage?

To me it basically says:

"The human (natural person) does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him......etc....etc....."

The passage speaks that spiritual things are not known to humans. One must be Spirit in order to acknowledge and understand them.

So back to my original questions......

"Are you a natural person?"

Let's you and I play "throw the scripture" at each other.

You can play the evil part of the Lord, and I'll play the holy part. Won't that be FUN?

And then again if they started discussing who knows the religious truth, they might bring out their guns and go at it as they still do today in other countries of the world ... all in the name of LOVE of course.

But if these three clergy people were very, very religious, then they wouldn't have to say a thing...."Silence is golden.", they were not James Bond, "Man with a Golden Gun.", going around the world....

Do you mean holy people?

You are almost being as gracious as the evil side of your Lord when according to the Catholic church-fathers Jesus claimed that all who wanted to be saved MUST be of the Catholic faith.

Imagine a Jew claiming that all who want to be saved must be of the Catholic faith.

Now that is humorous in deed!

Preachers believe it is their duty to preach. You should know ... the Jew-hating golden-tongued John Chrysostom being one of your favorites.

But Preacher Preston considers me the MOST ignorant Christian. That entitles me to some humility....

The Protestants won't talk with me anymore. And Catholics think I am just not in line.

It makes me happy, no pretense. Just free to walk the mountains with God.

My mother was one happy women to finally get a wringer-washer so she could stop scrubbing clothes on the scrub board.

She knew that the supposed dreamed-of "good old days" were actually not so good at all ... not for women, or for men who had to labor from early morning to late night simply to survive..

I sometimes wonder if a preacher believes it is their duty, right, or obligation to preach.

I think the best preachers bring their humanity, and not their ideas. When a preacher thinks, they get caught in their own sense of reality..., and try to project it to the crowd. So I could not be a preacher....

John C...., What do I think about him? Not a whole lot, because I know so little about him.
Just a few random bits of writing by him....So he can't be a "favorite"....
