June, know what gets me? Just what is a "blessing"? Just a good wish? I have no idea what a "blessing" supposedly does.
----------
Our words are powerful. "The power of life and death is in the tongue."
Parents curse their children by telling them that they 'will never amount to anything', or other such nonsense. The children are wounded by such declaration.
It is better to declare goodness to your children (and everyone else)...THAT is a blessing. Our society does a lot of blessing when we say, "Have a good day." We are blessing others that way.

A simple "good-bye" is a contraction of a blessing: "God be with you."

I suggest that the term spiritual foundation is an oxymoronic term.
You don't believe that the spirit of the Muslims or those who are not in your cult ... is connected to the spirit of the creator.
That is not a fair way to play your moronic games of rightness!!!
Not even CLOSE!

The Jewish term TEMPLE existed before the bible.
And long before that, people worshipped gods and goddesses in the Jungles ... without the problematic male-created words compiled in books to in turn confuse them.
Again, I will point out that pope Leo X and Martin Luther USED the same words in the same bible to point at each other as being antichrists ... and you people choose to learn nothing from their stupidity.
Jesus founded the Church. He didn't found another Jewish or a pagan temple.

.....If by chance you were born into a loving Muslim or Jewish family, your entire logic about Jesus would be reversed......and you would be posting your love of Allah or God almighty with no Jesus story.

....Interesting that being born in a certain location in our world MORE often than not determines who and how you worship.
....religions and religious beliefs compete with each other for superiority, just like Ford competes with Chevrolet.

"Muslims Convert to Catholicism: Millions Each Year!

Jesus instead of Jihad - Every year six million Muslims convert to Christianity

Http://plinthos.blogspot.com/2013/03/muslims-...

Two million converts in Russia, 250,000 in Malaysia, 80,000 in Algeria

In Algeria, there were approximately 80,000 Muslims who were baptized, which prompted the country's government to enact laws against Christian proselytism. In these years, Moroccan media continued to report the baptism of tens of thousands of citizens. People see war and crisis zones in Islam and they decide for Christ, as the representative of an evangelical community in Sudan said.

In Malaysia, according to the Mufti of Perak, 250,000 Muslims have submitted officially to the authorities the application for change a of religion to Christianity. Such a change is only allowed for members of ethnic minorities. On the number of Malays who were baptized in secret, there is no information."

Thanks be to God !

OH! whats the point in God coming back to judge everyone if you have already punched your ticket?
At what exact moment in your life did YOU determine you are going to heaven?
When Gif closes your casket for the last time you will be going where everyone else is going. Back to mother earth.

In June of 1947 He invited me to believe in/follow Him. I did, and HE punched my ticket. He has promised NEVER to forsake me. All I have to do is stick with Him.''

If I die before He returns, they will put my body in the earth...but it won't stay there, because He has promised to take me back with Him when He comes back.

Maybe King James the first and his Puritan liars omitted to write it in there.
The Catholics were also very adept at leaving Jewish ideas out of the new testament that they thought would agree with Judaism's lies.
And the Jewish theologians that compiled the monotheistic god dogma omitted to write that their ancestors, the Hebrews, believed in multiple gods.
All theologians preferred and still prefer their own lies to the lies of other theologians.
It was from them you learned your lies and how to try to defend the lies against other theological lies.
I suggest that none of them knew what, if anything comes after death of physical bodies. Nary a ONE.
But they were dishonest, and they taught you to also be dishonest.

You are fibbing StarC. Catholic's lay claim to a lot of things but it doesn't make it true.
I thank the Catholic Church for nothing. It is a false Doctrine.
The angel of the Lord greet Mary with Hail same thing as saying hello. Lk 1:28
Rev.8 :3-4 C hapter 8

We have already seen what occurred upon opening six of the seals; we now come to the opening of the seventh, which introduced the sounding of the seven trumpets; and a direful scene now opens. Most expositors agree that the seven seals represent the interval between the apostle’s time and the reign of Constantine, but that the seven trumpets are designed to represent the rise of antichrist, some time after the empire became Christian. In this chapter we have, I. The preface, or prelude, to the sounding of the trumpets, Rev. 8:1-6. II. The sounding of four of the trumpets.

Seventh Seal: Prelude to the Seven Trumpets

8 When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. 2 And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets. 3 Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand. 5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake.

6 So the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

First Trumpet: Vegetation Struck

7 The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth.[a] And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.

Second Trumpet: The Seas Struck

8 Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. 9 And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

Third Trumpet: The Waters Struck

10 Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.

Fourth Trumpet: The Heavens Struck

12 Then the fourth angel sounded: And a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night.

13 And I looked, and I heard an angel[b] flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice,“Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”

She doesn't WANT to entertain such thoughts. She wants to be IMPORTANT and live forever slathered with eternal love ... while she is certain that others that she perceives are evil ... deserve eternal hell.
You can't get THROUGH to religious devotees that hold such benevolent impressions of their selves.
They first have to believe they are on an equal path with all other human and non-human animals in order to want to burst their own superior attitudes that they hold of their selves.

----------
LOL Humility is a godly characteristic. Hell wasn't my idea...and God didn't prepare it for men. It was intended for the devil and his co-horts. Too bad some humans fall into that category.
I'm not happy to see any one go to hell.

We are NOT equal to the animals. I love animals, but they are not equal to humans.

Kay did you know if you click " reply" The quote comes up without having to copy and paste?

The library is open to the public, not 'hidden', of course you'll have to go to Rome, what are the chances of that? lol.
Or you can go to New York when they are displayed there....(what are the chances of that.

Not gospel? Says who? The founder of your 20th century church?
Believe The Church that Jesus started, not man/women made up churches.
