How did I know you would answer like that? :):)
I already told you in another thread but you wouldn`t listen. Too self-centred? :):):)
Yes, I do ask people why they are as they are. It's called discussion, you might try it sometime.
I have been discussing things with you quite long now, don`t you see I devote so much of my precious time to your posts? Do you really need more? So greedy for other people`s interest? :):):)
Religion has caused so much suffering in this world. Stop being blind to this. For what? For something intangible and unproven? Hence my allusion to negativity.
So what? Do I need to give up my religious beliefs because there were negative events connected with religion in the past? Is it foretold/ordained I will follow negative attitudes too?
Seanus, be resonable, for God`s sake ... :):):)
I asked you about church. I went to church for years if you must know.
And you lost the way and look for directions.
Pawian, don't take it personally,
Of course not. You, either. :)
MANY others have been unable to stand up to scrutiny or say why they are Catholics. For me, they'd be as well be describing any Christian denomination.
I already told you in another thread but it is obvious you wouldn`t listen.
What does your heart have to do with the Bible? I have great heart on many matters without reading a book.
:):):) This self-appraisal of yours is really amazing.
There are many religious people who actually can say why they follow this or that religion.
And they tell you about it? :):):) They haven`t given up yet? :):):)
They must be people of great enduring faith.
This is how you can tell someone deeply religious and conscious of their choices from someone who blindly follows some rituals and repeats phrases they don't understand.
Nobody`s perfect. :):):)
Have you ever talked to a Jehovah Witness? Each of them can give you a whole lecture on why they follow this faith.
I cannot give a whole lecture. I have some limitations. That is why I am not a Witness, and am a modest Catholic boy instead.
That view is closer to agnostic than Catholic.
Let it be so. Whatever you say. :):):)
As far as description is concerned, most Christians describe God as merciful, almighty, just, all-knowing, full of love, wise etc.
Thanks for reminding me. :):):)
There's no need - they willingly talk about it without asking.
That`s good. There is no need for people to hide their convictions.
