Re: Is the Pope slamming Islam for what the Vatican and Chri

For my money the Reformation completely invalidates the entire Christian project. Even if you accept that the Protestant reforms are the likely and valid truth of God's revelation, this leaves millions of Catholics over 1000 years from Constantine to Luther in the wilderness of hell. On the other h...

Re: Was seeking God more pleasant before literalism?

Matthew 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. Luke 17:2...

Re: Embrace Judeo-Christian culture and values! Is this poli

Always good to find a mind that sees 20/20.

Just found this on the ten commandments if you have the time.

Embrace Judeo-Christian culture and values! Is this politici

Embrace Judeo-Christian culture and values! Is this politician serious? https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=H2ED8A8RXeY The apostle’s creed shows that Christianity is based on having to embrace barbaric human sacrifice and the notion that the guilty should be forgiven if a suitab...

Re: Was seeking God more pleasant before literalism?

In fact I have considered changing many times but then I've come to realize that at the core, all religions are basically the same, it's only all the window dressing that differs. So I'll stay where I am as far as churches go, and carefully choose where I put my faith. I guess that's why I don't sa...

Re: Was seeking God more pleasant before literalism?

If you follow the teachings of Jesus as most Christians say they do then you would know that Jesus says to look within ourselves for God and that his laws are written in our hearts. I do. Unfortunately, you're following old wives' tales. Jesus Christ never said this. Nor does any other part of the ...

That's good to know. I'll know to double-check in the future. :)
Thanks. I tend to use too many commas and confuse even myself.

Re: Is the Pope slamming Islam for what the Vatican and Chri

"First, the RCC's position is not based on "human sacrifice," It is completely based on the human sacrifice of Jesus. To say that God was the one to die on the cross would be silly as we all know that God cannot die. Take Jesus' death and sacrifice out of the apostles creed and there is not Christi...

Re: Was seeking God more pleasant before literalism?

What else could someone be seeking when seeking God other than his laws and rules? Why, a Person, of course. Not a "big, flying guy," obviously: that would be childish. But a Supreme Entity with a consciousness, will, identity, purposes, characteristics and qualities of His own, one with Whom one c...

Re: Was seeking God more pleasant before literalism?

Good logic. To get around all that I guess that most would have to define God as I do and that is just as the best set of rules to live life by. We cannot seek a real live God as he is absentee but we can analyse what some think he said, as literal or not and determine of those laws are worthy of a...

Re: Was seeking God more pleasant before literalism?

Upon reflection, it occurs to me that the header of this post is oddly worded. Firstly, if "seeking God" has any point at all, it would only be on the assumption that God exists. Otherwise, there's no value in "seeking" what is simply not to be found, or that which to find would be inherently to su...

Thanks buddy.

You had me thinking of just one of two (sharing) love.
