If there is one religion to make peace
we all have a lovely life.
Unfortunately our life is rotten to the core.

You're just paraphrasing 'original sin'.

Once you get beyond the fact that each of us is capable of much harm, you see that each of us is also capable of much, much, more.

The propblem happens when you give up on yourself ...

my name in Topix is not congenial .
I had posted a thread about the arival of POPE.
No one had taken care of my critical views.
I care more for the people who are as ignorant as me than the intellectuals who are aplenty

Original sin? To me it sounds like when your computer gets a virus that says, "Antimalware2000 has found 124 threats to your PC that need to be eliminated now." You're scared into thinking that something is there when it isn't (besides the virus). Original sin has to be one of the most supertitious things about my old religion.

The Catholic Church has to be the whore of Babylon, lol just look at the Pope, he just looks evil to me.

The present Pope is a nice CEO to sing the song of Epithalamium

way to preach it brother, but not only yourself but given up on the one true GOd and His teachings of brother love. "For their is no greater love, than to give you life for your brother" If God loves you and forgives you, then why cant u love and forgive yourself"

And im going to catch it from all the catholics out there. But in my religion we believe that the Catholic church is the antichrist. they not only have their own bible,not inspired by God. BUt upon the Popes hat in Latin are the words. God here on Earth. He is calling himself God,they worship idols. Statues of mary,jesus etc the list goes on. they changed the Sabbath day from Saturday to Sunday. And thats from the first pope constantine. In order to opease the public. And the catholics will agree to that. THey persecuted thousands upon thousands who where not of their faith. Sounds like the muslims dont it. THey pray in repition where the Bible clearly states not to do that. They call their Priest Father. and Jesus says you will not call anyone father but me..thats enough for now.

Well maybe in the old days, the Christians thought of you as the anti-Christ and that is why they slaughtered you.

The ideas of a fun day out were different in those days.

Seems to me there is a lot of dogmatic idea in your religion, friend? And also a lot of misunderstanding about the Catholic faith.
