- Because God created man in His own image. He wants nothing but our love. It is because of us that we have war and famine.
Why would you have a child if you know that one day that child will face difficulties. If you know that your child will face difficulites, what is the point of having a child in the first place?
- I thought the same thing for a time and thought that 'eating of the apple' was just a metaphor for sinning in general. But you didn't write the Bible, you weren't there at the time. How would you know?
- Err, yes they did. Satan bribed them into eating the apple so they can become like God. They fell into sin.
The Bible is not a storybook.
but the bible never said anything about an apple , that is just what poplular society has put in children storys to make it easy to comprehend...if you want me to tell you what it symbolizes i will. but i wont go there if it is not needed
but may i suggest that when we are done, that we edit our posts to avoid conflict with the moderators
- What are you talking about?!? Purgatory is reparation for our sins on Earth. Prayer may shorten the length of time spent in Purgatory, but no ammount of money or prayers from Priests will release souls.
Think of your soul as a white shirt. Sin as a mustard stain. And purgatory as the washing machine.
You sin and you now have the mustard stain on your shirt. You go to confession (which is free of charge) to have the mustard wiped away, but the stain is still there. Pugatory, washes away the stain so you may enter Heaven.
- The infallible teachings have been around for 2000 years, (not all though.) One of them is the teaching of Purgatory which will stay as it is until the end of the world.
- Catholic Church > Dstates. If the Catholic Church declares a Dogma (infallible truth) I'm going to believe it as truth. Again, Purgatory is one infallible Dogma.
- Ok...who said the Catholics worshipped Mary? Who is telling you these lies? We honor Mary for being the Mother of God. Only God deserves worship.
- No, just don't degrade the Church or the Bible.
