You have made your own "god". The True God will give you just what you want. You get mad that He sends people to hell for disbelief yet you just said that you would be fine to not be in his presence. Why get mad then? Isn't that what they (and you) want?

Check out the thread that I started on Zoroastrianism and then get back to me. That is only a small part of it, though. I will get back to you on the rest.

Not interested...but thanks.

Use the Holy Spirit (Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Gentleness, Meekness) to find out who God really is........

My point was that Zoroastrianism (which is a B.C. religion) is very similar to the Catholic and Protestant form of Christianity. There is a reason for this.

I'm finally starting to understand WHO Babylon is. You have to COME out of her!

The Holy Spirit will lead you into truth. NOT man.

Again, you have made your own "god". God is much more than love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, meekness! You ignore the other parts of Him because it doesn't make you feel good. This is idolatry.

Since no liar can inherit the kingdom, you might want to give some thought to the lie you posted:

The benefit according to UR: Live TODAY as you choose, to your own liking, do nothing different...for God's "got you" in the end!

So I gather, after you came out of ZOROASTRIANISM, you've arrived? To "where" exactly? To.... all will be saved?

And you're here telling to come out of something that I'm not "caught up" in, in the first place? Which part of, I don't do religion........do you not understand? You ask me a question earlier, your question: Betsey, what do you know about the history of Christianity? My reply: To be honestly...not much!


All roads don't lead to Rome, muchless Heaven..........

No, CantWait2Leave. That is why Jesus had to come in the FLESH to show humans just who his Father was! You will KNOW them BY THEIR FRUIT! The Old Testament guys had no CLUE! And neither does Christianity!

He HATED what the Pharisees did to the people under them. They terrified everybody into following God and they put burdens that killed men's souls! He was VERY angry with the religious. He told them they were going to Gehenna (hell), which they did in 70 A.D. Their centuries-old kingdom crumbled.

The religion of today is NO different. In fact it has gotten worse........

But according to what UR believe it's no lie, everyone "gets in", and that IS a lie.

I am still learning, Betsey. And it's not just about Zoroastrianism. The Greeks had their version of ugly gods and hells, too.

My mom and dad tried to tell me some of this stuff when I was little. They both KNEW that it was a mangled mess out there, but I was too scared to listen, and I just trudged on and on like a good soldier.

But, my burden got to be too great, and I didn't want to turn on whatever it was that was the Good News, so I didn't. I COULDN'T!

Something has just driven me, and I'm learning as fast as I can. So, no, I have not arrived. Not until I'm dead.
