But you're still uneasy and have doubts about whether you've made the right decision in abandoning the faith Mike. Why?

Here is another one that USES scriptures for VAIN-glories.

All preachers are of the same mindset. "Follow me! I preach truth straight from the holy God ... and all those other preachers preach lies from the devil."

Preachers of religion were and are of the same mind-SET. They believe that the people of the world can't get by without their sermons.

Observe the arrogance of the supposed Buddha.

As a militant atheist/agnostic spending night and day on this board trashing the Catholic Church while remaining silent about protestantism, it tells me life isn't so good for you. If it was, you'd either walk away from here laughing and go enjoy it OR at least be an equal opportunity Christian basher like all the other atheists. No, I think you're hiding something. I think you're a bit worried and have real doubts of your atheism and that when the time comes you'll regret walking away from the faith. And I think this trash talk is really an effort to justify what you did and an attempt at convincing yourself you've done the right thing.
Prove to me I'm wrong Mike.
..,What trash talk (lol).??? I post catholic statistics from the official roman catholic directory/Vatican statiscum. Are you stating that these well operated operations are giving us wrong information?

......I post from solid Catholic organizations and you deny them.

...I have stated there is no writings from the entire Mediterranean, outside the single agenda driven NT that a man/god named Jesus lived and died

...... Can you give me a few stories from 4bce to 30 ad, outside the bible that a Mary/Joseph, 12 apostles, John baptist, man/god Jesus lived?

.....something is terribly wrong!

Joh_14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
JESUS SAID
Joh 10:1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
Joh 10:2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
Joh 10:3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
Joh 10:4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
Joh 10:5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
<quoted text>
God has revealed Himself to EVERYONE. Please read Romans 1:18-20, 18 "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse."
It is amazing how the born-agains Protestants like you and fundie catholics like hojo are almost exactly alike.

A belief in a small-minded, unjust, angry little god.

Maybe it's more about yourselves, than anything about a creator of all things?

Either way, you have both faithfully blinded yourselves to a greater Universe.

So according to that dogma the Buddha believed he had to reincarnate in many lifetimes of his own suffering to release humans from the bondage of suffering.

The Catholic theologians taught that Jesus (Ihcuc) only came once to suffer for humanity and the next time he comes he won't be crucified. He will just come to take the "repentant" sinners to Catholicized "heaven."

Had theologians used the term philosophy ... humans would never have taken the dogmas as being trustworthy, and that would have spared humanity all those religious wars started by the theologians.

lol. We know you post Catholic statistics. But you're a militant atheist/agnostic. Why aren't you an equal opportunity Christian trash talker like all other atheist/agnostics? Why are you hiding the fact that you're obsession with Catholic bashing stems from your insecurities about your abandonment of the faith?

Trash-talk is minor stuff. When preachers of religion start claiming that you are EVIL is when you better run for cover, as you might find your self burning to death at the hands of those who believe they know a servant of god from a servant of the devil.

If these preachers decided they would leave religion ... they would suffer from horrendous withdrawal.

I hope truth with a small t is okay.

I almost want to see her posts again to know she is alive and at least physically well.

In my own way, I bonded with her and empathized with her, as I had also suffered the confusion of religion for most of my life.

If your car is blue, but someone argues your car is red, you don't get angry at that person because you KNOW the color of your car.

Deep inside, they know their beliefs are irrational and in some case, completely absurd.

Thus they get angry and feel you are being hostile and hateful, because they have doubts.

100% true.

What must one do to be saved?

----------
One is to BELIEVE in one's heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, and confess this with their mouth (the 'confession' or testimony declares that Jesus''work' accomplishes our salvation).

Faith is believing, and that faith provokes the confession of what we believe. Confession is our part of the covenant...like signing a promissory note.

"The power of life and death ARE IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE." That move makes a change in one's heart.

God made man in His image. God brings things into being BY SPEAKING.

If religion was based on truth, they would not fight, as they would all believe the same.

They fight because they all want to "believe" that they know truth.

If you don't know if you will be saved, why would preach at others how they can be saved?

Are you THAT idiotic???

On one hand you preach that "GOD" makes the final decision and so it is out of your power, and then you proceed to use scriptures (compiled by Catholics in the new testament) to claim that you KNOW how to be saved.

I'm NOT saying anything at this point. Is this Kay or confrinting?

Many protestants here, particularly the fundamentalist type, are saying that Catholics are non-Christian un-saved pagans, then in the very next breath they say if a person professes per Romans 10:9 is means they're saved.

Since I and every single faithful Catholic I've ever know has professed per Romans 10:9 countless times (at every mass in fact) and is exactly what the Catholic Church teaches, how they make such a contradictory statement? Is it bigotry? Are you double-minded?

You hate anyone not catholic making you a militant, apologist catholic. That is why most of your posts are to protestants trying to bait them into arguing your Catholic church nonsense.
