This is the exact wording from the King James Version of the Holy Bible, the most widely accepted version of the Holy Bible.
The King James version is the most widely accepted version of the Holy Bible for Protestants. It is not the most widely accepted version of the Holy
Bible to the Jews, nor the Catholic Church.
Unfortunately, for all mankind, this verse is not only a lie,
No, this is your own opinion. To most God-fearing Christians who believe that their Lord and Savior is Jesus Christ, they do not view this verse as a
lie. They view it as the truth.
but has served to force Christianity upon people in the most destructive fashion imaginable.
Be specific. The Crusades are over. I know of no place where the Roman Catholic Church is "forcing" Christianity upon people through violent
means. Perhaps you have the Roman Catholic Church confused with militant Islam, which does attempt to force their religion on "infidels" through
This false teaching, initially attributed to Jesus by the Roman Emperor Constantine in 325 A.D., has been instrumental in the murdering of millions of
innocent people over the past 1700 years.
The teaching is false only according to your opinion. Secondly, the verse is from Holy Scripture - the Book of John to be exact. Provide proof - not
assertions - that Constantine wrote the Book of John.
How exactly does one verse advocating Jesus Christ as Savior translate into the assertion that this verse caused the murder of "millions of innocent
people"? Be specific. Name time, place, and peoples that were murdered by the Roman Catholic Church in the name of this verse.
You neglect to mention the great charitable works of the Church - the many hospitals, orphanages, schools, and other charitable institutions of the
Church. The Church is the sole religious institution that I know of that speaks openly against the evils of abortion. The Church is the sole
advocate for the poor, the oppressed, and the dispossessed.
Have you ever read about Catholic Charities? Do you know the kind of work that Catholic Charities does?
What about all of the nuns and priests that work in the prison system to help prisoners during their time of despair and need?
Many monks, priests, and nuns have given their lives in charitable and philanthropic work on behalf of the Church.
There are two sides to this story, my friend. You condemn the Church on one hand, and neglect to mention the great charitable works of the Church on
This same lie about the Pope being the most divine of all men and the Catholic Church being the ONLY path to God and Heaven is still being sold by the
Catholic Church today. They continue to threaten eternal damnation in Hell for anyone who rejects this horrendous lie.
Have you been reading Blavatsky, or what? She has the same opinion. But then, she also believes that Satan is a pretty swell fellow, too.
The Catholic Church, since Vatican II, has become more ecumenical than it was in prior generations. This, to the anger and dismay of hardliner
traditionalists within the Church.
Nevertheless, the Catholic Church - as with any other church or religion - certainly believes that the Church is the only route to Heaven. Just about
every religion believes the same thing - The Baptists believe that their religion is the best, as do the Jews, and Muslims. Big deal!
The Church has strong beliefs about eternal damnation. Just because you don't believe the Church, doesn't make it a "horrendous lie". The real
test will be when you stand before the Throne of God upon your death, and you must answer to Him as to why you rejected Him and tried to rip apart his
Church on Earth. What will you say to Him then? What if you're wrong? What if Jesus Christ is, in fact, the only route to salvation?
And, curious enough, what other route could there be? What other kind of Savior would you want? Jesus Christ was perfect in every way. He was a
healer, a teacher - kind, generous, loving, caring. He preached a Gospel of Truth. He cast out devils, healed the sick, raised the dead. And He
sacrificed Himself for the forgiveness of our sins. What more do you want? What more could you ask for?
and strengthen his ability to control people at the same time, he needed a rule book, A Bible, to eliminate any confusion and make sure people were
doing what he wanted them to do. Therefore, in 325 A.D. Constantine commissioned the writing of the first bible and Constantine also served as the
Editor of the first Christian Bible.
The bulk of the Bible in the form of the Old Testament was around long, long before Constantine was even born. The laws, rules, regulations, and
strictures of the Old Testament were in place long before Constantine was born. Just ask any Jewish Rabbi.
Much of the suppressed information pertained to the teachings of Jesus and others regarding the divine nature of all things, the all pervading nature
of God, the fact that everything consists of this God. They taught about the Holy Trinity actually referring to the Omnipresence of God, the
Omnipotence of God, and the Omniscience of God.
I think you would be hard pressed to find any Roman Catholic that would disagree with what you have stated above. How does this differ from Catholic
teaching exactly? Are you saying that the Catholic Church doesn't believe in the Omnipotence of God? Huh?
There was far more discussion about the divine feminine which Constantine’s Bible almost totally suppressed.
So who do you think Mary, the Mother of God, was? The Catholic Church has literally thousands of books written about the Blessed Mother Mary.
No, ladies and gentlemen, the Great Lie is John 3:16.
Your opinion. Without much support or facts to back it up, I might add.
Jesus and his more spiritually minded friends who believed in the ONENESS of GOD and the divinity of ALL people, including ALL men and women, would
have never have told the lie credited to him in John 3:16.
Bizarre. Are you saying that Jesus Christ Himself did not believe that He was the Son of God, capable of offering everlasting life, as the Savior of
mankind? I can assure you, that Jesus Christ knew that He was the only Son of God.
