<quoted text>First lets try to be accurate. did not say I waited for anyone.How can you read Scripture accurately when you cannot even read me accurately.Second, you have the pride and arrogance, sikr. to have no respect for the Holy Spirit's work with the first church and to assume that the Holy Spirit speaks only to you. lso there is nothing arrogant about loving Giod and the Word of God so much that you study it continuously.I do not need to be Borfn Again. You again in arrogance, think you know my spiritual condition.The Holy Spirit dopes not just guide us in reading the Bible. e guides us in being better Chrtistians by understanduing the history of His church and the people he worked through to preserve it. Gos is very very deep my friend and worthy of myuch meditation and study. Yiou do not need to school me.
Well Herme, in the above post you stated and I quote “I do not need to be Born again. Now you are stating that you are a born again. Now who is deceiving whom? There are many examples of your double-minded comments in the last couple of days. Creditability sir, you just don’t have any. I think that would make you a wolf in sheep’s clothing. IMHO of course.

Idfiot I do not need to be Born Again because am already Born Again. Is this too difficult to understand? Go read another pamphlet or a web site that explains all you need to know about the Bible.You are just a bunch of scattered accusations and smart remarks that have no root.You use catch phrases like "wolf in sheeps clothing". You are incapable of an original thought or even a little bit of analytical thinking. You miss subtklety. You do not understand what is implied.After you get a dictionary and lok up all these 3 syllable words come back with some new insults.
For any verse you do not know its writer, his style , his emphasis, the surrounding culture, the language, the history.You could not read a stop sign coprrectly.

My exact quote was: ".I do not need to be Borfn Again. You again in arrogance, think you know my spiritual condition" n other words MY SPIRITUAL CONDITION IS THAT I AM ALREADY BORN AGAIN."So then misreading my quote,, you call me a liar. Go away.

That clown hates dogs, but makes excuse for child molesters.
It's sad that 96% of Roman Catholics give the other 4% a bad name.
The 96% lied, deceived and covered up these worst of sins.

As you know when priests leave the seminary (there aren't many today) they get placed into a diocese where they usually spend the next 50 years sharing living quarters with other clergy from the diocese. They live together, they socialize they are all friends of each other. They all know who the alcoholic priests are, who the lazy priests are and who the ones who have been caught doing unthinkable things to kids.

That other 96% are just as guilty as the priest/bishop who committed these most serious crimes.

Philadelphia is now the template, of how the coverup clergy are going to be treated. The Roman catholic Monsignor in Philly just got sent to prison for 3-6 years for covering up for dozens of molesting priests in Pa.

Right this minute clergy around the country are shaking in their boots..........WHO IS NEXT!!

The twisted part of this whole thing is Catholics themselves are virtually silent. They too, are responsible for much of what has gone on, for not demanding answers. Their sins are UNforgiveable.

<quoted text>This is a huge theological question and you are right to ask it. If there is a God, an omnipotent God at that, why is there suffereing and why do bad things happen to good people and innocent people.Sometimes in response we are forced to swallow such stupid sentiments in their times of grief and loss.There are various ways that it has been answered. One is that suffering happens for no reason. There is no meaning to suffering. However we can give suffering meaning through elevating our relationships with God and with others.Another is The ... theological conclusion God could have been all-powerful at the beginning, but he chose to designate two areas of life off-limits to his power," Kushner says. "He would not arbitrarily interfere with laws of nature. And secondly, God would not take away our freedom to choose between good and evil.
One thing is certain. We can find comfort in the account of the raising of Lazarus from the dead.By the time Chruist arrived there, Barabas had been dead for three days.When Christ saw ararus' sisters crying, Jesus wept. The people said "How he must have loved him". But Christ knew He was going to resurrect arabas.Jesus wept because of the pain He felt for others' suffering. I do not pretend to have the answer to this question.
I continue to explore it with faith and love in a loving God that suffers with me.
Herme. You just gave the catholic texbook answer.

However, long before Jesus was a twinkle in the eyes of St Paul came other religions all around the mediterranean sharing standard ideas of gods and their man/gods who taught basically the same elements of their faith, that christianity copied and teaches today....

Other previous pagan beliefs worshipped their miracle working walking talking God man, they had prophecies that came true, they described demon possession, forms of baptisms or initiations, a sacrifical meal, taught of a heaven and hell, and promised eternal salvation if you believe in only them.

Christianity is not the creator, or inventor of most of their own core beliefs. Most christians are not aware of this.

Christianity hobbled together, cherry picked customs and traditions to create their faith that were practice by others over 1,000 years before the Jesus story was created.

I thought you knew all this?

THINK ABOUT THIS: If pagan beliefs that were practiced thousands of years ago could have COPYWRITES put on ALL their customs, traditions, and elements, christianity would have never started, because they just copied their traditons, and customs from others.

Thats not very good is it? Christians believe everything about their faith is UNIQUE. WRONG!

Christians need to turn the clock back before 2,000 years ago, and learn about all the other pagan beliefs that came long before, practicing basically the same things christianity copied from them.

If God created the heavenS and earth, and you believe God is in heaven, where was God before he created the HEAVENS?

What was the purpose of God, before the universe was created when there was nothing? What did God do if there was nothing? Why would there be a need for a God if there was nothing?

What was the purpose of the holy spirit and the purpose of Jesus before when there was nothing?

What ever answer you give, if I asked 1000 other christians they would all give different answers than yours.

Why do you waste so much time hailing Mary on you're rosary, when Mary didn't know what a rosary was, because it wasn't invented until the 11th century.

You need to get out of that thin air in Australia and move North, YES! move above the equator where most educated civilizations live.

It is difficult but I am determined to forgive them. I ask Jesus to forgive them too.

However, I will never forgive their leaders at the Vatican for not letting the world know about Mary's threat at Fatima until it was too late.

Imagine if the world had known about her demands and was given the opportunity to show more devotion to Mary's sacred heart!!! WW2 could have been averted. But the Vatican kept Mary's demand a secret until after WW2 had begun and millions of Chinese had already been killed.

Which leads us to the biggest mystery in the Universe....

Why does Jesus seem to hate poor Chinese peasants so much? What did they do to Mary?

goodness confront...
I hope you're not referring to Catholics when you say people on here have no respect for the bible!
Please please understand, we Catholics call the bible 'the word of God' too. It is completely entwined with every Catholic Mass and every prayer we do. There is so much scripture in a catholic or orthodox mass, your head would spin, confront.
But never were these books thought of as a literal- word for word- verse chapter verse type authority on Christianity.
The authors of the New Testament were not the only people in the history of the world ' inspired' by the Holy Spirit!
Does that make sense?
~~~

I personally believe that the Bible (rightly divided) is the only

inspired word of God.

that it is the standard.... by which all Christian activity

....both Spiritual

and

physical should be measured.

I also am adamant in my belief that all other additions (editing s) that cannot be (with out question )validated by the word is conjecture .

Therefore I do not accept the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church

which cannot/does not meet the required standards (is not founded upon)

the truths of the Bible.

I TAKE FOR MY RULE AND CONDUCT THE (WHOLE) BIBLE (RIGHTLY DIVIDED) AS THE WORD'S OF GOD

AND BELIEVE IT TO BE INSPIRED BY THE HOLY GHOST...

WHAT IS PRESENTED...(TO ME)... THAT HAS NO ... FOUNDATION FOUND IN THE

SCRIPTURES,

I ADAMANTLY REJECT.

I have over 60 years of Bible study to my credit...

How long have you studied the Bible?

Many of us have also told others here that the Holy Spirit guides us in our Bible reading, Herme; they called us liars.Personally, I feel when we know HE is guiding us, those who call us liars are the liars themselves; the romanists claimed we were lying.
