Catholics can't learn Protestant universal truth. They are "geared" to only learn Catholic universal truth.

Humans in religion expect others to come their way to in turn learn universal truth.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Religion teaches that Satan is not afraid of biblical scriptures.

Not afraid at all. In fact "his" image is very difficult to remove from human psyches.

That's why I never allowed an image of a devil into my brain-farts ... EVER.

The Woman’s Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred objects … by Barbara G. Walker.

Exorcism

The Roman ritual of exorcism is surely one of the silliest survivals of medieval superstition and credulity still extant, though the church has wisely relegated it to a dusty back shelf and rarely permits its use. Still, it is officially held that demons possess people, and that certain priests must be assigned the function of exorcist. According to the ritual, the exorcist is adjoined not to believe in “superstition,” yet in the same sentence is incongruously directed to discover any “magical spell, sorcerer’s symbol,” or “occult documents” that might have caused the possession.
Interestingly, one of the alleged signs of demonic possession is the same sign that Saint Paul took as a sign of divine possession: speaking in tongues.“When the subject speaks unknown languages” or understands unknown languages, demonic possession is indicated.
The exorcist’s first concern is for his own safety. At the invocation, God is ordered not to remember the sins of the exorcist of his assistants, and the possessed “should be tied down, if there is any danger of violence.” The demon is commanded to “do no damage” to anyone. However, since demons are defined throughout as disobedient, recalcitrant, and perverse, one wonders what can be the use of such commands. The demon is also said to answer questions falsly; yet the exorcist must ask it all sorts of questions about its name and antecedents, the numbers and names of its companions if any, its reasons for possessing the victim,“and other questions of the same kind.” In other words, the “possessed” person is encouraged to be highly creative in inventing responses.

During the course of many long and tiresome addresses to the demon(s), to God, to angels and archangels, to saints, and in fact to almost everyone except the subject himself, the invasive spirit is commanded to surrender, to go away, to leave, to give in, to desist, to take flight, to get out (twice), to retire (twice), to go out (four times), to depart (six times), to give way (seven times), to be uprooted and expelled, and to be put to flight now. Yet all these dismissals are interspersed with rhetorical questions showing that the creature is not dismissed: Why do you stay? Why do you resist? Why dare refuse? All the foregoing commands are bolstered up by the Mysteries of the Incarnation; the Suffering, Death, Resurrection, and Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ; the sending of the Holy Spirit; the Last Judgment; the name of the Judge of the Living and the Dead; Our Creator; God the Father, God the Son; God the Holy Spirit; the faith of the Holy Apostles; the blood of Martyrs; the purity of the Confessors; the pious and holy intercession of all the Saints; the Word made Flesh; and the strength of the mysteries of the Christian faith, not to mention assorted Cherubim and Seraphim, Powers and Virtues and Dominations of Heaven, and much more. One would think that all this heavy armament would be effective. In fact the demon is told that “it is impossible for you to refuse to obey.” And yet, one little demon can hold out quite well against all these superpowers, it seems. The creature hangs on, and must be told again and again to depart. Exorcism seems at best a creaky vehicle for God’s intercession.
The ritual is kept up until the exorcist sees “signs of liberation,” which, however, are not described. The directions include that demons often produce a false appearance of liberation, as if “the subject of Exorcism is not possessed at all.” How this is to be distinguished from the real thing is never made clear. Apparently, the ritual of exorcism is virtually interminable, going on until everybody is tired of it and/or the victim-hysteric-performer runs out of ideas for outrageous things to say or do. Then, he or she is either pronounced cured, or relegated to psychiatric ministrations that probably should have been applied in the first place.

Yes indeed ... Theologians taught me that they were all liars that knew nothing more than non-human animals.

It took me 70 years of my life to completely escape their manipulating clutches.

You and your nonsensical spiritualty are still grinding away in the hopes that you can lead others to your supposed "enlightenment."

BWAAAGGHHH!!!

When I first came on threads of Topix forums ... the Catholics and Protestants were continually threatening each other with being possessed by evil demons.

Now they have toned it down in the pretense that those in their religions are nice to each other.

Frauds!!!

You can't BE nice to each other and at the same time believe others are possessed by EVIL while YOU are the essence of HOLINESS.

Stupified religious addicts!

Until he joins your Catholic religion, he can't be wise and saved as are you ... RIGHT???

You expect too much of him. He "simply" can't BE a favorite of Jesus if he's a Protestant.

Hahahahahaha

Thankfully I never bought in to the idea that if I followed a specific religious doctrine, by a god, I would be perceived as holy, while others that followed their own religious doctrines that differed from mine would be evil.

THAT was always a very SILLY "concept" to me.

Jehovah's Witness to a Catholic ... "You are in an evil cult and I know universal truth."

Catholic ... "You ought to be burned at the stake for spreading such blasphemy against GOD."

J.W.... "Let Jehovah-God be the judge."

Catholic ... "His name is NOT Jehovah."

J.W.... "It was, before the Catholics deprived him of his rightful name."

Did YOU open the Bible, read Matthew 23:9 and make a DELIBERATE choice to DEFY the very command of Jesus Christ, and obey the pope instead?

YES. You did!.
Funny thing. Catholics believe that the Pope is "Christ Among Us".
How disgusting. Vile, even.

Jehovah's Witnesses believe that they should pray directly to Jehovah-GOD.

OH WELL ... Maybe Jehovah favors them and will disown the other Christians.

After all ... it really should be left up to the one god ... shouldn't it???

In your most feigned "humble" moods ... you all admit that "GOD" will make the final judgments.

So then tell me why you feel such an urge (as in urgent) to preach at each other???
