Hail, Mary! Full of Grace. The Lord is with thee; Blessed are thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us sinners, Now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

The government’s got it wrong.

For a while now, there has been a push to redefine what freedom of religion means.  Freedom of religion comes from the following:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Here’s what people seem to think it sa...

ON another blog discussion about SCIENCE and GOD, the discussion sometimes turns solely towards religion, something that does not interest others.  

 

So, in an effort to continue the discussion, I’ve created this forum.

 

A fellow JUser posted the following:

 

I believe baptism is no longer necessary for salvation, for we already have salvation.

 

To which I asked: Why do you believe that Baptism is no longer necessary for salvation?  ...

I want to apologize up front to Lula and KFC and others for leading them astray of my (our) true intentions. But according to the master and atheist being what they are ... the cat is out of the bag … so what the hell. I am not going to apologize because I really, really, believe in my second hand god. Without further ado, I will let my pagan boss speak for all of us, hahaha.

Catholics in England were forbidden to practice their faith openly during the years from 1538 to 1829. This song was developed to communicate their gift of faith in coded lyrics. The 12 days run from December 25 (Christmas) to January 6 (Epiphany). The "true Love" refers to God. The repetition of the melody signifies God's continual renewal of His gifts.

Well Mother always used to say “the proof is in the pudding” and that is how I see Religion in any form. So, if the Catholic Church (the only Church of Christ?) has been unable to prove their elevation of Jesus to God status in over two thousand years … what in the world are you guys going to prove now? Absolutely nothing is what but that is ok... I finally figured this out. Logic will not even dent your armor as well we know and proof is meaningless to people who don't ne...

Actual History is chockfull of the rise and fall of religions for millennia … many Ages. And they all have the following in common. Whenever they became week enough to lose control of the majority of the sheeple, they are replaced with a new Messiah and a new message just as the Christians have done with the ‘old Jewish’ religion when that too lost its strangle hold on the world of Man due to its barbarism as perceived by man in a new Age. Anyone who lives in a future tim...

How many of you believe you can do whatever you want, break the commandments of Almighty God, and after death will still go to Heaven?

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) teaches:  "To die in mortal sin without repenting and accepting God's merciful love means remaining separated from Him for ever by our own free choice. This state of definitive self exclusion from communion with God and the blessed is called "Hell". CCC 1033. 

In the lesson of St. Matthew's Gospel...

On another blog, a fellow JoeUser asked the following questions and made the following comments:

 

I am irritated with the closed-mindedness of organizations with causes. If there is only one way (YOUR way) to reach God … why are there so many divergent paths and religions making the same claim? What makes you think it is even conceivable that a paper trail in excess of 2000 years could contain much resemblance to the original fictions?

I am sure you have heard of the test t...

Since I last wrote, a whole lot has changed for me.  My brother did contact me, and we talked at length about what I read, where I was at in life, and stuff like that.  One of the things we talked about is getting myself to the point of forgiving my mother.  I have forgiven others that hurt me, but I have struggled in forgiving her.  Why?  Because there is nothing more that a woman wants than a strong bond with her mother, and she robbed me of that.  I opened up to ...

Many weeks ago now our Pastor preached  the Sermon on the Mount.    Since I've been doing much studying along these lines the last few months I decided to put my notes from his sermon down here along with some of my own thoughts. 

I believe there are two ways, two crowds, two behaviours that eventually lead to two destinations. 

According to a recent poll 98% of people believe (think) they are going to heaven.  Well that would mak...

Most everyone is familiar with the story of the shepherds watching over their flocks the night angels came to announce the birth of the Messiah.   He would be born in a little town of Bethlehem. 

Shepherds.  Flocks.  Sheep.  Lambs.   Metaphors abound using these terms in scripture. 

Shepherding was a big part of everyday life for the Jew.  Biblically speaking, the writers of scripture frequently used shepherding imagery depic...

CHAPTER 13 The angel of the Lord showed Nephi a vision of the future.  In the vision, Nephi saw the many nations and kingdoms of Gentiles that would someday fill the earth.   Within the Gentile nations a “church” was formed, which was the great and abominable church that was also prophesied of by John the Revelator.  This “church” sought to enslave the hearts of men. Torturing people and binding them down into captivity.  The “church&rd...

Time to be honest.......Islam....the religion of "peace" has sanctioned the murder of a woman. The Iranian government has given the go ahead to execute this lady because of alleged adultery. I am sick of people calling Islam a religion of peace when it sanctions the wholesale slaughter of their citizens because of stuff like this. In the mean time, the whiners come out and SPEAK OUT against the Christian faith for encouraging morality. "Yeah, but remember the cruscades....that was done by Christ...

I have often read in this blog, as in many others, about the Christian belief that Jesus died for humanity's sins. Frankly speaking, it sounds illogical to me. Really, what does this mean? Does this mean that Christian's sins have already been forgiven, or that they would and "should" be forgiven whatever they do? Does this mean that Man is not accountable for his deeds and that religion or life, as a whole, is that meaningless? Does this mean that a Christian can rape or murder, or the do the g...
