Lucifer is the father of evil. We are all born into a world of sin. Even in Catholicism there is a rite of baptism to cleanse the evil and symbolize rebirth in Christ.
The Lord's prayer is a guidline, taught by Christ, how to pray.
I talk to the Lord as I would my own father. Just like I talk to anyone else.

Now you are contradicting yourself Joe. You keep doing that. Why did you say that satan is our father? He is the father of evil. We may be sinful, but we are not evil. There is NO WAY that satan can be considered our father. Our Father is God.

Jesus encouraged His followers to address God as Our Father or Abba. There are Bible verses that support addressing the Creator as a parent and teacher.
Galatians 4:6 (NKJV)– "And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out,'Abba, Father!'"
James 3:9 (NIV)– "With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father."
1 John 3:1 (NIV)– "How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!"
2 Corinthians 6:18 (NIV)– "I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty."
Ephesians 5:19-20 (NIV)– "Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Are you going to tell me that Christ was a liar?
Nope.
You are completely missing the point.
All I'm trying to say is that we must be forgiven and reborn through the acceptance of God's Sacrifice of His Son.
When Adam chose to rebel against his Creator, he lost his innocence, incurred the penalty of physical and spiritual death, and his mind was darkened by sin, as are the minds of his successors. The Apostle Paul said of pagan minds,“Since they do not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, He gave them over to a depraved mind”(Romans 1:28). He told the Corinthians that “the god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers so that they cannot see the light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God”(2 Corinthians 4:4). Jesus said,“I have come into the world as a light so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness”(John 12:46). Paul reminded the Ephesians,“You were once in darkness but now you are in the light of the Lord”(Ephesians 5:8). The purpose of salvation is “to open the eyes [of unbelievers] and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God”(Acts 26:18).

The Fall produced in humans a state of depravity. Paul spoke of those “whose consciences are seared”(1 Timothy 4:2) and those whose minds are spiritually darkened as a result of rejecting the truth (Romans 1:21). In this state of depravity, man is utterly incapable of doing or choosing that which is acceptable to God, apart from divine grace.“The sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so”(Romans 8:7).

Without the supernatural regeneration by the Holy Spirit, all men would remain in the fallen state of sin. But thanks to His grace, mercy and loving-kindness, God sent His Son to die on the cross and take the penalty of our sin, reconciling us to God and making eternal life with Him possible. What was lost at the Fall is reclaimed at the Cross.

“Acts 2:38”

<quoted text>Well thank you,I appreciate the fact that you think I am too far over the edge to be a Roman Catholic,tell that to whoever is in charge of your particular parish.If in fact we are all fools who are not RCs than we are fools for Christ,and ultimately we will answer to HIM.I needed saving,and your being a good Catholic does not save me.Now if you want to be really saved dkbrown13, just get serious with God our Father,and repent of your sins,give them to Jesus your Savior who is the Lover of your soul,and walk by F A I T H and not by sight!
Read chapter three of John's gospel and submit to the Master who told Nicodemus he must be born-again. Jesus loves you more than anything you could imagine.He is mighty as the Savior,and He is even mightier being Lord.His Spirit can change your heart and mind toward Him,so that you can be a good person who walks in His ways.
It is immaterial to me whether He will make you a good Catholic,or a good Christian,but more important is that you REPENT,go to Him and find out Who He really is as your Savior and Lord!
That would be the best Christmas gift you ever received this season.J O Y is from the LORD,who gives liberally to all who come to HIM.
You want to read the Bible, try reading Luke and after you read it then tell me that Mary is not the mother of GOD and also you can tell me why all the Miracles happen thru the Catholic church???
Better yet I will tell you. Have you ever asked someone high up for a favor and just before he is ready to give it to you, you tell him. "I respect you but I don't like your mother. do you think he is going to give it to you??
I have seen 3 Miracles with my own eyes, how many have you seen???

<quoted text> Now, I want to share something with you:
http://www.simpletoremember.com/vitals/Christ...
I don't celebrate pagan holidays because I am very aware of the true history and origins of these rituals. I hope you'll take a long look at this and ask Christ to open your eyes. I have a hard time sharing this with others because I was brought up to believe that all of these holidays were copasetic. The rite we have adopted as "christmas" always brought our family together for a warm and cozy celebration of, what I was told, is a celebration of the birth of Christ. Even Halloween was a big deal.
Now that I have been shown the Truth, I cannot, in good conscience, continue to celebrate these ancient Roman and Egyptian pagan rituals. Satan is very deceptive and has most of the world blinded by his twisted perversion of the Word of God. His minions are with us, influencing our world and religious leaders to the point where, otherwise good people, become his unknowing servants.
You will never see me tell people "merry christmas" or any other such nonsense.
Merry Christmas Joe!!!! Today and every day - celebrate the Birth of Christ. No pagan ritual, just joy in the birth of our savior.

So sorry that you consider that "nonsense".

We will be singing Happy Birthday to Jesus with our children as we do every year. We will pray for you.

Yeah. Okay. You obviously got stuck there. It is interesting that you haven't responded to the explanation I gave. I will try ONE MORE TIME:
We are ALL born into sin. We have to give up our old selves and be washed clean by the Holy Spirit.
By the way, my father's name is Jerry.
I have backed up everything I've said. You just can't get passed your interpretation of what I said concerning all men being born of Satan.
Adam and Eve were made in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26-27; 9:6). However, we are also in the image and likeness of Adam (Genesis 5:3). When Adam fell into sin, the result was every one of his descendants also being “infected” with sin. David lamented this fact in one of his Psalms:“Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me”(Psalm 51:5). This does not mean that his mother bore him illegitimately; rather, his mother had inherited a sin nature from her parents, and they from their parents, and so on. David inherited sin from his parents, just as we all do. Even if we live the best life possible, we are still sinners as a result of inherited sin.
Later.

None of this proves that satan is our Father. Being born with original sin and a sinful nature does not make satan our "father" by any means.
When you pray the Lord's Prayer (if you ever do that), who do you pray to? Our Father who art in heaven?...... or the other place???
Luke 11:1-13
One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.
"He said to them, "When you pray, say:
" Father, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.
And lead us not into temptation."
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Well done Mark.....thank you for posting the obvious traits one should have through his/her life. As you can see, most are common sense attributes that were written in order to help men to live peaceful lives.

(ME) Its NOT common sense, God will manifest the life of Christ in his people and will bless them with the fruits of righteousness in their hearts. I don't take correct for good that’s in my life, I know its God, not me. Look at the person who called Jesus good master, he replied, why call me good, their is none good except God. Jesus never robbed his Abba Father of anything. Also Jesus said, if you don't believe in me, believe in the words I do, they are of my Father. Another place he said the words I speak, are NOT mind, but him that sent me (God his Abba Father)

It is odd though, that I seem to live a very peaceful life in love, kindness and friendship, but I didn't need the bible to tell me to do so. Because I CHOSE myself to live the way I do.

(ME) No one can bear good works with out the Holy Spirit. To have the Holy Spirit, you must go to Abba Father and ask him in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to give his Spirit. Without the Spirit of adoption and God putting the Spirit of Son in your heart, you can not bear good works. If a Christian does good works, its NOT him or her, its by the finger of God. The peace you need is with God of the living through the precious blood of Christ. You may believe your sins of the old world are forgiven and if you sin to day, to know to do good and don't is sin. If I sin to day, all I have do is ask for forgiveness and I am forgiven. I can also forgive them that sin against me and/or if they owe me anything and can not pay.

So now you probably want to tell me, just because I was a RCC patron that I will not be with my Father when I die, huhYou really have an issue with other beliefs, don't you? Are you afraid I may be right and you wrong? Afraid that I have live a full and happy life and you can't because of your faith?

(Me) With out the Son of God in your life, you have NOT the Abba Father. Also faith without good works is dead, as the body is dead, without the Spirit. You are trying to get to heaven by the works of your own hands, that will never works, let God manifest his good works in you by his Holy Spirit in the life of Christ.

beliefs (Me) There is only one true belief, that is in the Lord Jesus Christ who God sent to be the Saviour of all sins of men. Jews and Gentiles, of the old world and believe in God who raised him from the dead and he sits at the right hand of God, until his enemies where destroyed and he did come the second time for salvation of the Jews.

It is generally agreed among impartial commentators that the collapse of traditional Christian moral and social values throughout Luther's Germany, was largely a consequence of his teachings, and especially his disdain for Reason.
In 1525 he wrote:

All of what you have written only tells me that you need someone else's confirmation that you are living the way you should. I don't
We live because we can. We make the choices to succeed or not, "God" doesn't. We make the choice to believe or not in what other men state, "God" doesn't.
Think for yourself.

(Me)We are commanded NOT to live bread alone, but by every word that proceeded from God‘s mouth. Can you truly say the Lord God Almighty has something to do with all these different gospels and all these different religions that deny the one that brought them.?????
What I am trying to say, weather you believe it or NOT, your family was Christians before the RCC and all these others in the beginning of this new world. You will never know, unless you read and study, as all men are commanded to do. That is why the women are commanded NOT be speak out in the churches of God our Father in the Lord Jesus Christ by the Holy Ghost, as it was in the law, for is a shame, and if they have any questions, ask their own husbands at home.
All Christians did walk in the same mind and Spirit of Christ at the beginning of this new world, but as all these different religions started up, he took it from them. They are given up the gift of the Holy Spirit of GRACE of eternal life, in NO other name, but the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ.
I will let you go, for we have nothing common in the body of Christ.
