Stop being a goat.
Cute. And, since when are you the boss of me?
Again explain the miracles if it's only symbolic or if gnostic BS is true.
I never have attempted to explain actual "miracles", and the only ones I count are the ones where, for example, from time to time a person is
riddled with disease and then becomes "whole and well." I believe there are unseen forces that some people can tap into, and some things happen
that seem "impossible". Not my job to "explain" them. I also have personal experience with being "guided" or "spoken to" by something much
more than "coincidence."
How can the Eucharist be true but Protestant and gnostic positions be true too?
The Eucharist is a ritual of remembrance. It's not "true." Do you actually experience that wafer as a bit of raw flesh? Does the wine taste like
blood? No. and no. No one tastes actual flesh or wine in church. They eat a wafer and sip a bit of wine. Get real. Besides, it's disgusting.
You don't think you are accountable for what you know?
I am very much accountable for what I know. You aren't making sense. And you don't know squat comparatively. It isn't about "age", dude, it's
about EXPERIENCE and STUDY, and even practice. Decades of it.
The fact that you know about these miracles also makes you culpable.
Culpable of what? Of knowing about mysterious things that defy explanation according to current "knowledge"?
Calumny after calumny shot at the Catholic Church to justify your lack of action on discovering the truth.
Aside from your infatuation with your new word "calumny", this sentence points out nothing that makes sense to me.
discovered the truth. CHURCH is NOT IT. Ritual is not it, either. Nor is reciting antiquated verses that you don't even really
understand just because the person you are giving your OWN power to says you're supposed to.
I still see you ignoring the question about the miracles but rather choose to condescend because of age difference.
I'm not ignoring the question, I'm saying that NO ONE KNOWS everything. No "religion" can be the "right one." They are ALL wrong to some degree
or another. I have as much right as anyone to come up with my own understanding of it. And I have, apparently, more brainpower and better critical
thinking skills than LOTS of people.
I don't need to pay anyone or listen to anyone else's authority on matters of my own spirituality.
I don't need to be "schooled" by you or
colbe or anyone else. Mind your own soul's business, you don't get to mess around with mine.
THAT is the truth.
