There is no question about it that all devotees in their personalized cults are there because they believe they will be rewarded with utopic bliss forever and ever.

If all religion was true ... all believers in all sects (sections) WOULD be rewarded with utopic bliss.

Some humans started religious lies and others caught on and kept on promoting the same lies as being based on universal truth.

You can't all be preaching supposed universal truth ... so I suggest that all of you are simply repeating lies.

To teach children that they are born as wretched broken sinners and expect them to feel good about their selves is ludicrous.
I suggest they should be taught that they have the ability to be kind, but that because we are born with a will to survive, our natures are based on selfishness.
Only then will they feel that their selfishness is natural and not evil ... as is taught by religion.
The best for which we can strive is to try to be less selfish and somewhat more considerate of the feelings of others.

They do not believe in "live and let live". They claim to be the only REAL church.

Did you hear the one about Catholics “worshiping” statues?

Against idolatry appear throughout Scripture (e.g., Numbers 33:52, Deut. 7:5, 25, 9:12, 12:3; 2 Kings 17:9-18, 23:24; 2 Chron. 23:17, 28:1-3, 22:18-25, 34:1-7). In 1 Corinthians 10:14 St. Paulwrote,“beloved, shun the worship of idols (Romans 1:18-23). God condemns the sin of idolatry, whether in the form of worshipping statues, or stock options, or sex, or power, or a new car, any thing as an idol. But He does not prohibit religious images provided they are used properly. For example, in Exodus chapter 25 God commands Moses to carve statues of angels.“The LORD said to Moses ... you shall make two cherubim of gold; of hammered work shall you make them, on the two ends of the mercy seat. Make one cherub on the one end, and one cherub on the other end; of one piece with the mercy seat shall you make the cherubim on its two ends. The cherubim shall spread out their wings above, overshadowing the mercy seat with their wings, their faces one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubim be.... There I will meet with you, and from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim that are upon the ark of the testimony, I will speak with you of all that I will give you in commandment for the people of Israel”(Exodus 25:1, 18-20, 22; cf. 26:1).

This shows clearly that there are circumstances in which religious images are not merely permissible but actually pleasing to God. Another example is the rather humorous incident described in 1 Samuel 6:1-18. In Exodus 28:31-34 the Lord commanded that Aaron’s priestly vestments be adorned with images of pomegranates. In Numbers 21:8-9 He commanded Moses to fashion the graven image of a snake that would miraculously cure poisonous snakebites (a mysterious foreshadowing of the cross of Christ [cf. John 3:14; 8:28]). And in 2 Kings 18:4, when the people began worshipping the bronze serpent, the King immediately destroyed it. What once was a legitimate sacred image had become an object of idolatry.(A cautionary tale for anyone tempted toward superstition or idolatry). And notice what God told Solomon as he constructed the Temple:“’Concerning this house which you are building, if you will walk in my statutes and obey my ordinances and keep all my commandments and walk in them, then I will establish my word with you, which I spoke to David your father. And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake my people Israel.’ So Solomon built the house, and finished it.”(1 Kings 6:12-12-14). This statement is important because the Temple contained a vast number of statues and images including angels, trees, flowers, oxen, and lions (cf. 1 Kings 6:23-35, 7:25, 36). Solomon’s decision to include these religious images came from the gift of wisdom God had blessed him with (cf. 1 Kings 3:1-28). And far from being displeased by such images,“the LORD said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication that thou hast made before me: I have hallowed this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually”(1 Kings 9:3). Obviously, God would not have blessed Solomon and “hallowed” his temple filled with statues and images if He did not approve of them — further proof that images can be good when used to order our minds toward God and heavenly realities. Remember too that St. Paul called Christ “the express image” of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15). The Greek word here for “image” is eikonos, from which we derive the word “icon.” Just as we keep pictures of our family and friends to remind us of them, we also keep statues and images in our homes and churches to remind us of our Lord, Our Lady and the Saints. Additional passages to study: John 14:9 Colossians 1:15 Hebrews 1:3 1 John 1:1-3 -

1 Corinthians 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
1 Peter 2:8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
Nice, u didn't add the important verse....verse 9.

1 Peter 2:

and
“A stone that will make people stumble,
and a rock that will make them fall.”
They stumble by disobeying the word, as is their destiny.g

* But you are

“a chosen race,

a royal priesthood,

a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may announce the praises” of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light."

Fundies would not be able to read the Bible if the First Christians called Catholic had not given it to them.

"If the Catholic Church discourages Bible reading, the Pope, the thousands of Catholic Bishops, and the many millions of Catholic lay people, are not aware of it. For the Popes have issued pastoral letters to the whole Church, called encyclicals, on the edifying effects of Bible

reading. The Catholic Bible far outsells all other Christian Bibles

worldwide. In fact, it has always been thus. The very first Christian Bible was produced by the Catholic Church – compiled by Catholic scholars of the 2nd and 3rd century and approved for general Christian use by the Catholic Councils of Hippo (393) and Carthage (397). The very first printed Bible was produced under the auspices of the Catholic Church – printed by the Catholic inventor of the printing press, Johannes Gutenberg. And the very first Bible with chapters and numbered verses was produced by the Catholic Church – the work of Stephen Langton,

Cardinal Archbishop of Canterbury. It was this perennial Catholic

devotion to the Bible which prompted Martin Luther – who certainly

cannot be accused of Catholic favoritism – to write in his Commentary on St. John: "We are compelled to concede to the Papists that they have the Word of God, that we received it from them, and that without them we should have no knowledge of it at all."

Music, Cheer, Prayer...More than 50,000 altar servers give Pope Francis a warm welcome

2014-08-05


" Pope Francis took a break from his vacation to meet with more than 50,000 altar servers in St. Peter's Square. After making several rounds in the popemobile to greet the crowds, the Pope led the Vespers and prayed with the youths while speaking in German.

A group of altar servers also had the opportunity to ask the Pope some questions. Everything from the meaning of being an altar server, to time management and how to deal with teasing from their friends and peers. "

Possibilities:

A. The teaching that the Sacred Infallible Word of God is bunk....it teaches opposites...
B. You are wrong as sin..the Word of God is Sacred Inspired and Infallible.

My vote is for "B"...

“My comment on CHRISLAM , is that it seems,more in tune with a belief system not glorifying Christ above all as,SAVIIUR . This muddying of beliefs does sound dangerous. And I agree on that”.
I agree with this part 100%. It’s not dangerous for those who have a strong foundation in Christ but, for those who don’t, I love to study “end time” prophecy. I don’t know everything, that’s for certain but that’s where I’m coming from. There is no fear in trying to understand the end times. It’s intriguing, motivating and, for lack of a better word, awesome. IMO, the development and evolution of Chrislam will tell the story. The concept of Chrislam is not new but, it is becoming more known.
I do not think the Pope is pushing Chrislam because he, at some point will deny Christ. The Pope is trying to find common ground with the three major religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Compromises will have to be made.
I’m not trying to judge Muslims, Catholics or anyone else. I know that’s not my job nor within my ability. God will judge the hearts of all mankind, including me. I’m just intrigued by the way the world is going as compared to scripture. IMO, Israel’s return to their land promised to their fathers, is no coincidence. If it is not a coincidence, its prophecy fulfilled. I don’t believe satan can change anything our sovereign God said will come to pass.
I too am taken somewhat with end time prophecy, but admit I don't understand a lot of it
..Babylon could mean us , we fit the description.

I was answering your post re Pope Francis

Is the Pope promoting a,one world religion , I don't think.so, at least I don't see it now.
IF any holy man calls,for compromise in belief as Christ as the Way , then they more so fit the description. Or if they insist on detriment to Israel , which is fulfilling prophecy I.agree .

I don't belief Radicals,will ever find common ground ,but aiming for peaceful respect without giving up our belief in Our Saviuir is nit a bad thing , imo . If it stops,some killing, good for him ..
Though I actually do nit see God in the men who want annihilation of Israel or subjugation of women..they flat out want power and are misogynist ,,imo ...nothing to do with the God of Abraham .Jews may have been patriarchal , but did not mutilate their women religiously ....
I'm sure there are those perverting the faith anywhere, but one RELIGiON in this,age SAYS it's god wants violence, I don't see any compromise with these proponents of genocide ...
It is,quite possible that there are many who truly worship with a,peaceful heart in all three,religions......if these,folk can worship and live side by side with others , God bless them ., but not by our Faith be diluted,

Blessings,

Three persons in ONE GOD.
JESUS IS GOD ...THE FATHER IS GOD..THE HOLY SPIRIT IS GOD.

So...you do not believe the Catholic dogma of the Trinity

The Trinity is the term employed to signify the central doctrine of the Christian religion — the truth that in the unity of the Godhead there are Three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, these Three Persons being truly distinct one from another.

In this Trinity of Persons the Son is begotten of the Father by an eternal generation, and the Holy Spirit proceeds by an eternal procession from the Father and the Son.

Yet, notwithstanding this difference as to origin, the Persons are co-eternal and co-equal: all alike are uncreated and omnipotent. This, the Church teaches, is the revelation regarding God's nature which Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came upon earth to deliver to the world: and which she proposes to man as the foundation of her whole dogmatic system.

Repeat: the Persons are co-eternal and co-equal: all alike are uncreated and omnipotent.
Repeat: God's nature which Jesus Christ, the Son of God,

You did not respond to the question regarding the Catholic teaching that Christ is the incarnate Son of God...why???
