I am offended that two people here and one person said twice "praying over a bucket of milk", this shows their mocking bias. If Louise Pasteur was a
professed atheist, oh how they would laud his discoveries. And Pasteur discovered more than the process of Pasteurization folks.
This is the point, again. Louise is an an example of a scientist (microbiologist) who is/was faithful to God in a powerful way, he was very devout.
God directed Pasteur to his discoveries. Since all good things come from God, some of this good is realized by "science" AND a small amount of God's
truth is professed in man-made "religion."
Remember for the time ahead, the fullness of God's revelation is only found in the "Faith", there is only one Faith, Roman Catholicism. Everything
one knows of Christ less the Old Testament prophesies came from her. God is going to show every soul on the earth this fact personally very "soon" to
enlighten and change hearts, hoping His children choose for Him.
May the Two Hearts J+M keep you safe neno,
I apologize - I didn't mean to offend you, I meant to reinforce the point that Science and Religion are two different fields of endeavor, that answer
entirely different questions, and are NOT mutually exclusive, but rather complimentary, in that together they cover a wider spectrum of inquiry,
neither of which is qualified to answer for the other.
One does not ask a science question of a preacher and expect a scientific answer any more than one asks a religion question of a scientist and expects
a religious answer. they are not structured the same, as they investigate entirely different fields.
We do, however, differ on a few things you touch upon. "The Faith" is no more bound to a single church than "the world" is contained within the
boundaries of Italy. I have "The Faith", but am in no way a Roman Catholic - I detest Empires, especially those made by Roman Emperors.
I am not a Catholic, and so I know nothing of Jesus that originated with Roman Catholicism. They were latecomers to the scene, long after Jesus had
already died, resurrected, and ascended. Catholic dogma was promulgated solely to consolidate the power of the Empire, and has nothing to do with
Jesus or God at all - it has all to do with the power structure and hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church/ Roman Empire.
God does not "hope", God WILLS, and It IS - i.e. "Light BE, and it WAS".
I thank you for the sentiment and attempt at blessing, but I have One Spirit that protects me, and no need of "two hearts" to do so. After what I've
seen, done, experienced, and survived these past 53 years, I am convinced that Spirit does an excellent job, and can see me through to the end without
any further assistance.
Thank you all the same, though.
