The confidence trick that a god that once loved only the Jews would turn Catholic ... escapes your mentality.
As you keep preaching your nonsense ... you learn nothing about the con-games of the masters of con ... who were and are, the theologians.
I do not know of this Jewish teaching you rave about that says God only loved them. I do know of books that tell where God refused to destroy others despite wishes for it. I do know that it is said by their prophets that they were punished because they did not hold up their end of the bargain. I do know that Jews believed they were a people set apart. I do know that it was prophesied that all would be saved through the Jews. I do believe a new covenant was set up. I do not know of this claim that all Jews would go to hell. I do know that Josephus the Jewish Historian referred to the Christians as a Jewish Sect. I do know that the church specifically protected the Jews from the beginning. I do know that not everyone found it easy to practice. I do know that the Jews werent exactly fond of Christianity. I do know that you did not bother to read what I provided and continued to bellow while proclaiming you were not answered. I do know that you hate all religion and I do know that your opinionated theories and irrelevant rhetoric devoid of intelligence is the utopian solution for all to live in a world where everyone smiles and waves like a prom Quen on a float. I used to wave back to them and ask them for them phone numbers. It was Heaven. ;)

Interesting....
Jesus said it is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. So, if the flesh profits nothing why would we have to eat Jesus' flesh in order to live forever?
Are you implying that Jesus's sacrifice on the cross, His actual human body dying was of no profit?

John 6:60 - as are many anti-Catholics today, Jesus' disciples are scandalized by these words. They even ask, "Who can 'listen' to it (much less understand it)?" To the unillumined mind, it seems grotesque.

John 6:61-63 - Jesus acknowledges their disgust. Jesus' use of the phrase "the spirit gives life" means the disciples need supernatural faith, not logic, to understand His words.

John 3:6 - Jesus often used the comparison of "spirit versus flesh" to teach about the necessity of possessing supernatural faith versus a natural understanding. In Mark 14:38 Jesus also uses the "spirit/flesh" comparison. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. We must go beyond the natural to understand the supernatural. In 1 Cor. 2:14,3:3; Rom 8:5; and Gal. 5:17, Paul also uses the "spirit/flesh" comparison to teach that unspiritual people are not receiving the gift of faith. They are still "in the flesh."

John 6:63 - Protestants often argue that Jesus' use of the phrase "the spirit gives life" shows that Jesus was only speaking symbolically. However, Protestants must explain why there is not one place in Scripture where "spirit" means "symbolic." As we have seen, the use of "spirit" relates to supernatural faith. What words are spirit and life? The words that we must eat Jesus' flesh and drink His blood, or we have no life in us.

John 6:66-67 - many disciples leave Jesus, rejecting this literal interpretation that we must eat His flesh and drink His blood. At this point, these disciples really thought Jesus had lost His mind. If they were wrong about the literal interpretation, why wouldn't Jesus, the Great Teacher, have corrected them? Why didn't Jesus say, "Hey, come back here, I was only speaking symbolically!"? Because they understood correctly.

I suggest that if a deity exists and has been watching the confidence tricks of all theologians ... nothing good will come to them.

If any group is rewarded, it should be the ones that refused to believe that the gods wanted humans to kill by order of the theologians.

Religion has been the nastiest of all confidence tricks ever played on others ... EVER!

I hope when I die that I will simply sleep forever.

I certainly don't want to have to go through another round of harassment from theologians claiming they know truth while killing each other to prove their points.

Such ignorance is NOT bliss, and if a deity foresaw the mess of ignorance and suffering on earth and went ahead to create humans, it's one sick psychotic monster in DEED!

Religion is bunkology.

Are you so stupified as to believe that a deity waited eons of time for you to post these words as the only truth in the universe???

How gigantic IS your ego to feed itself such ridiculous nonsense???

If there just happens to be a deity, why would anyone be rewarded for believing that their religion is the only truth in the universe?

What type of monster-god would reward such brain-waves as being worthy of special treatment???

Even when I was under the spell of religion, I never believed that I was special to a god, and furthermore, I never desired to be special to a god.

What type of mentality would think so little of other humans???

I want you to consider that question, and as Mrs. Brown states ... "TINK about it!!!"

Catholics wrote the mythology that Jesus said ... "blah, blah, blah......"

And you invested all your FAITH in their confidence trick.

Not one word on earth has been claimed to be the handwriting of the supposed master of wisdom ... "Jesus."

I suggest that is because it was just another myth among many many savior myths.

Because He told us too. He even showed us how to do it. Paul received this from the Lord and passed it on to the Corinthians. John and Peter showed Ignatius and he wrote about it. Bartholomew and Jude showed the Armenians. Andrew showed the Greeks and Ukrainians. Thomas showed the Indians... Those Churches believe as they were taught too. And they also wrote.
Therefore "the flesh profits nothing" couldn't possibly unravel the Eucharist. I don't see how you people come to that conclusion on John 6:63 anyway. You have to be really bold and ignorant. you have to have a pre determined conclusion I think. You simply need to do away with the Eucharist so you do. Thats what it comes down to do. Its a Bible buffet. Pick your theology!

Same with sola fide. What happens if someone thinks they are saved after their third divorce. They lived as an unrepented adulteror.(Their interpretations of scripture trumped those of the Church.) Yet, "faith alone" saved them in the end.
One Evangelical side teaches that sola fide is not biblical. The other doesn't. I can't understand why they think this is ok. Marge even said 'as long as we use the Bible for our argument, its ok'. What?? If that's not Bible idolatry, then what is?
So the,woman at the well COUKD not possibly have been saved because,she,HAD lived,a bad,life. And,was,married 5 times???

The,prodigal son 'was,he,saved...what if he,had,relations,in living his,profligate,life,...oh but he,didn't get remarried...so God COUKD forgive Him..but not a,person remarried...

Yes,sir THE RCC can limit GOD..UNLESS, they pay for an annulment ???from the,RCC..???

Sorry but to me that's,the highest form again of chutzpah..

God CANNOT FORGIVE unless your Church puts,a stamp on it ...

There,are the type,of things,that believers,have a,hard time,with .....the,CHURCH over God thing.
Can you not see that

Most of us believe,you folks,are,true,believers in Christ...but you limit the Cross and put your Church fathers,doctrines above it.

Same with the,whole LIMBO belief. Now those,babies are,released,or were,never in limbo because the Church says,so...

As,far as,I know,the SINS..OF MEN AND WOMEN.....we're,taken to the Cross...it is,finished..ONE SACRIFICE BY ONE PERFECT LAMB slain ....

When posters punch negative icons, it's because what they read hit raw nerves.

And that is GOOD.

Irritation can make you look in the mirror to find why what you read is so upsetting to you.

I suggest that even if a deity existed, it would not find that your religion is special. That naughty hypnotic trance just exists in your deluded brain.
