The whole question, therefore, concerns simply the purpose of God in the
mission of his Son. What was the design of Christ’s coming into the world,
and doing and suffering all He actually did and suffered? Was it merely
to make the salvation of all men possible; to remove the obstacles which
stood in the way of the offer of pardon and acceptance to sinners? or, Was
it specially to render certain the salvation of his own people, i.e., of
those given to Him by the Father? The latter question is affirmed by
Augustinians, and denied by their opponents. It is obvious that if there
be no election of some to everlasting life, the atonement can have no
special reference to the elect. It must have equal reference to all mankind.
But it does not follow from the assertion of its having a special reference
to the elect that it had no reference to the non-elect. Augustinians readily
admit that the death of Christ had a relation to man, to the whole human
family, which it had not to the fallen angels. It is the ground on which
salvation is offered to every creature under heaven who hears the gospel;
but it gives no authority for a like offer to apostate angels. It moreover
secures to the whole race at large, and to all classes of men, innumerable
blessings, both providential and religious. It was, of course, designed to
produce these effects; and, therefore, He died to secure them. In view of
the effects which the death of Christ produces in the relation of all mankind
to God, it has in all ages been customary with Augustinians to say that
Christ died “sufficienter pro omnibus, efficaciter tantum pro electis;”
sufficiently for all, efficaciously only for the elect. There is a sense,
therefore, in which He died for all, and there is a sense in which He died
for the elect alone. The simple question is, Had the death of Christ a
reference to the elect which it had not to other men? Did He come into the
world to secure the salvation of those given to Him by the Father, so that
the other effects of his work are merely incidental to what was done for the
attainment of that object?

"When atheists are presented with critical reasoned arguments, they often
respond with either personal insults, twisted logic and reasoning, along
with semantics with excessive detail of complete speculation presented
as truth, to deviate from the critical argument at hand, and talk at
cross purposes to evade it."

You are the stupid one, Hoss, if you don't know that each religion and each denomination of each religion has different beliefs on many subjects.
You might believe that Jesus was Messiah and Son of God, but every Jew, every Moslem, and every Hindu will deny it. Christians make up only 1/3 of the Earth's population, so 2/3 of the world says you are wrong.

I just researched it.
That's the Calvinist view, but Calvinists are only a small group within Christianity. Most Christians believe he died for the whole world.

I don't care who you are, or what religion you voluntarily subscribe to

which say that you don't have to do something that some other human
has told you to do, unless you have first agreed to obey and follow what
that human says that you must do.

It's just that simple, Kemo.

Following Judaism is my choice. Why? I have done much research on different religions. Judaism is the only one that makes sense to me. Christianity is so
complicated it gives me a headache. Islam is too arbitrary and unjust.

God gave us the Torah. That tells us what to do. Matter of fact, it also tells Christians what to do.It's in your bible. Unfortunately, you folks have abandoned much of it. I suspect you will pay dearly for that when the time comes.

For your information here is what the Qur'an says about JESUS' Messiahship:

“When the angels said: ‘O Mary! Indeed God gives you glad tidings of a word (His saying, ‘Be’) from Him, whose name is the MESSIAH(CHRIST), Jesus the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and in the Hereafter, and of those nearest to God.” (Quran 3:45-48)


It's dishonest to talk on behalf of the Muslims If you never read the Qur'an as you once said..... I recall you said that your Judaism was so weak that there were books you were not permitted to read and this included the Qur'an,so you should not what the content of the Muslims FAITH is As for the Hindus no one care If they believe Jesus is the Messiah or not since they are polytheists and cow worshipers, but the Muslims are not. So consider this and apologize to every Muslim for misinterpreting their book.

JESUS IS THE MESSIAH IN ISLAM this is why the Arabs has the Dome of the Rock Mosque in Jerusalem. Of course it should not take that much brain to understand that what you see actually with the Arabs in the SUNNAH of the Prophet is not Islam but a counterfeit to the original one centered around JESUS being the Messiah in fulfillment of the prediction about the Messiah, prediction found in the Torah of Moses which goes like this:

A New Prophet Like Moses

15 “The Lord your God will raise up for you the MESSIAH(Christ), a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear, 16 according to all you desired of the Lord your God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.’

17 “And the Lord said to me: ‘What they have spoken is good. 18 I will raise up for them, the MESSIAH(Christ), a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. 19 And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him.

16 according to all you desired of the Lord your God in Horeb in the day
of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my
God, nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.’
17 “And the Lord said to me: ‘What they have spoken is good. 18 I will
raise up for them, the MESSIAH(Christ), a Prophet like you from among
their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak
to them all that I command Him. 19 And it shall be that whoever will not

Deut. 18:15-19 New King James Version (NKJV)
Garbage. I have read parts of the Koran and the related commentary.
The Moslems call Jesus a prophet, not a messiah.
Exactly.

You might believe that Jesus was Messiah and Son of God, but every Jew, every Moslem, and every Hindu will deny it. Christians make up only 1/3 of the Earth's population, so 2/3 of the world says you are wrong.
“When the angels said: ‘O Mary! Indeed God gives you glad tidings of a word (His saying, ‘Be’) from Him, whose name is the MESSIAH(CHRIST), Jesus the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and in the Hereafter, and of those nearest to God.” (Quran 3:45-48)
It's dishonest to talk on behalf of the Muslims If you never read the Qur'an as you once said..... I recall you said that your Judaism was so weak that there were books you were not permitted to read and this included the Qur'an,so you should not what the content of the Muslims FAITH is As for the Hindus no one care If they believe Jesus is the Messiah or not since they are polytheists and cow worshipers, but the Muslims are not. So consider this and apologize to every Muslim for misinterpreting their book.
A New Prophet Like Moses
15 “The Lord your God will raise up for you the MESSIAH(Christ), a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear, 16 according to all you desired of the Lord your God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.’

The whole question, therefore, concerns simply the purpose of God in the
mission of his Son. What was the design of Christ’s coming into the world,
and doing and suffering all He actually did and suffered? Was it merely
to make the salvation of all men possible; to remove the obstacles which
stood in the way of the offer of pardon and acceptance to sinners? or, Was
it specially to render certain the salvation of his own people, i.e., of
those given to Him by the Father? The latter question is affirmed by
Augustinians, and denied by their opponents. It is obvious that if there
be no election of some to everlasting life, the atonement can have no
special reference to the elect. It must have equal reference to all mankind.
But it does not follow from the assertion of its having a special reference
to the elect that it had no reference to the non-elect. Augustinians readily
admit that the death of Christ had a relation to man, to the whole human
family, which it had not to the fallen angels. It is the ground on which
salvation is offered to every creature under heaven who hears the gospel;
but it gives no authority for a like offer to apostate angels. It moreover
secures to the whole race at large, and to all classes of men, innumerable
blessings, both providential and religious. It was, of course, designed to
produce these effects; and, therefore, He died to secure them. In view of
the effects which the death of Christ produces in the relation of all mankind
to God, it has in all ages been customary with Augustinians to say that
Christ died “sufficienter pro omnibus, efficaciter tantum pro electis;”
sufficiently for all, efficaciously only for the elect. There is a sense,
therefore, in which He died for all, and there is a sense in which He died
for the elect alone. The simple question is, Had the death of Christ a
reference to the elect which it had not to other men? Did He come into the
world to secure the salvation of those given to Him by the Father, so that
the other effects of his work are merely incidental to what was done for the
attainment of that object?

As I recall, in ancient Israel, the system of animal

of sin to the animal that was sacrificed.

In Christian theology this was an objet lesson that

I'm sure Andrew is talking about the "scapegoat", as described
in Leviticus 16.

"But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive
before the Lord, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat
into the wilderness."

Not unlike the concept of the "sin-eater". And of course Christians regard the sacrifice of Jesus
as accomplishing the same thing.

Animal sacrifices are gifts to the deity. They have nothing to do with sin or guilt. How do I know? Those same sacrifices were made by the ancient Romans, the Vikings and other ancient religions, always as gifts. Judaism merely inherited them.

Animal sacrifice was a gift to a deity.
Right. In hopes of appeasing that deity's wrath.

"All its fat he is to remove, as the fat of a lamb is removed from the
sacrifice for peace offerings; and the cohen is to make it go up in
smoke on the altar on top of the offerings for Adonai made by fire.
Thus the cohen will make atonement for him in regard to the sin
he committed, and he will be forgiven."
(Leviticus 4:35 Complete Jewish Bible)

But I am glad you admitted that you don't believe what hundreds
of millions of other Jews around the world believe, and what it
says in the Jewish Bible.

I can safely say that you are not a practicing Jew. You may
call yourself one, you may celebrate Jewish festivals and holidays.

But that doesn't mean you're a Jew.

It is obvious that if there be no election of some to everlasting
life, the atonement can have no special reference to the elect. It
must have equal reference to all mankind. But it does not follow from
the assertion of its having a special reference to the elect that it
had no reference to the non-elect. Augustinians readily admit that the
death of Christ had a relation to man, to the whole human family,
which it had not to the fallen angels. It is the ground on which
salvation is offered to every creature under heaven who hears the
gospel; but it gives no authority for a like offer to apostate angels.
It moreover secures to the whole race at large, and to all classes of
men, innumerable blessings, both providential and religious. It was,
of course, designed to produce these effects; and, therefore, He died
to secure them. In view of the effects which the death of Christ
produces in the relation of all mankind to God, it has in all ages
been customary with Augustinians to say that Christ died
“sufficienter pro omnibus, efficaciter tantum pro electis;”
sufficiently for all, efficaciously only for the elect. There is a
sense, therefore, in which He died for all, and there is a sense in
which He died for the elect alone. The simple question is, Had the
death of Christ a reference to the elect which it had not to other
men? Did He come into the world to secure the salvation of those given
to Him by the Father, so that the other effects of his work are merely
incidental to what was done for the attainment of that object?

Jesus is the Messiah. Jesus is Son of God. You won't find that in the Old Testament. Matter of fact, one of the commandments reads "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me." That means there is only ONE divine being-God Himself.
Jesus does not fit the description of the messiah foretold in the OT.

The OT forbids the making of images of God, but you do that, too.
The OT forbids using God's name in vain. That means "Goddamn" is forbidden.

The truth is told in your Book of Matthew. Jesus said:"I come not to destroy the laws of Moses and the prophets, but to fulfill them." He never abandoned Judaism, but you have. You include the OT in your bible, but you don't follow it. You have abandoned the Kasruth dietary laws and circumcision.

The whole question, therefore, concerns simply the purpose of God in

Was it merely to make the salvation of all men possible; to remove the

to sinners? or, Was it specially to render certain the salvation of

Jesus said it at the last supper. At Mass, the priest, as he crosses his hands
over the bread and wine, says "LET THEM BECOME the Body and Blood of
Jesus..........".

The simple truth of Mass says that the "substance of the bread and wine" become
the "substance of the Body and Blood of Jesus" all the while remaining under the
visual, taste and texture of the substance of bread and wine.

I don't know what happened at your church, but it's my understanding is that the
"wine" must consist of some *minimal* level of fermenting. I understand the
term is "mustum".

Statement by the National Conference of Catholic bishops on the use of low
gluten hosts at Mass

In the November 2003
BCL Newsletter...
The Use of Mustum and Low-Gluten Hosts at Mass
The Secretariat for the Liturgy has increasingly received from bishops and
pastors inquiries regarding priests, deacons and the faithful who are unable to
consume consecrated wheat hosts or consecrated wine at Mass. Over the last
twenty years, both the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the
Sacraments and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith have frequently
addressed the special needs of such people in their reception of Holy Communion.
As recently as June 19,1995 (Prot.N. 89/78) Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Prefect
of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, wrote to all presidents of
Episcopal Conferences regarding the use of mustum and low-gluten hosts for
priests, deacons and the faithful in the celebration of Mass.

Bobbo is engaging in his "No True Scotsman" version
of Joshism. Catholics have a tradition of being
The True Church, dating bac to the possibly spurious
appointment of Pope Rocky I, by Josh hisself. The
non-Catholic eastern Orthodox claim that too, and both
branches of the pre-schism church point fingers at each
other, mumbling "schismatic!" and "heresiarch!" under
their breaths as they blow the filioque controversy up
to immense proportions, when we all know it was about
the still solvent, still defensible Eastern empire's
imperator wanting the church headquarters in his backyard,
without any kibitzing by a pope still living in Italy, and
being obligated to protect his holy seat from whatever the
next group to threaten the Papal States. In the 11th century
that would have been the Normans, who defeated an alliance of
Byzantines and local forces loyal to the Pope and the German
("Holy Roman") emperor at Civitate in June 1053 CE.

Long after the E-W schism, Duncan's beloved "reformers"
denounced the Pope and the church hierarchy in favor of
some kind of return to the "primitive church" of the
first couple of hundred years of the movement, though
not every Protestant church shed itself of "Popish"
trappings like ornate sanctuaries, vestments, bishops,
etc. Some even went so far as to downplay the early church's
eschewing of accumulated wealth and embrace of the poor, in
favor of the idea that worldly prosperity was an outward sign
of election by their ghod, denoting the elect who would be
saved! (Following Beza, if not Calvin.)

Millions clung to the Whore of Babylon, though. They think
they are Christians. When I was one of them, I thought so.
I'm neither a "cult member" nor a Christian, now, but I well
remember the self-satisfied jerks on both sides of this cosmic
quibble: the Anglicans in the Protestant Ascendancy and their
Scottish Kirk allies who thought that a Papal bull declared
by the only English pope authorized them to steal Ireland, or
at least what they thought were the best bits from the Irish;
the Ulster Scots who, having had some bad years on their
stolen land, moved to America to become the "Scots-Irish,"
with the additional impulse of continuing in Presbyterianism
when under pressure to conform to Anglicanism; the Calvinist
descendants of the Puritans who were the new England WASP
bluestockings determined to outlaw fun. On the other side,
the ultramontanist "no salvation outside the RCC" Catholics
of the pre-Vatican II mindset (there are still a few around)
who expected grown people to hand the moral car-keys to
church authorities. The history of Protestant anti-Catholicism
in the US, from the actual outlawry of priests in some of the
colonies to the Know-Nothing movement to the KKK and down to
the mistrust of Al Smith and Jack Kennedy when they ran for
President, when Protestants who backed the same policies
would have been unremarkable explains some of the Catholic
"circle the wagons' attitude. But Duncan's theological
forebears really did want immigration by Catholics quashed,
and considered allegiance to Rome tantamount to treason.

This is where Bobbo's "Jack chick tract" level of anti-Catholic
ranting comes from.

I'd say "a plague upon both or all of your houses," myself,
but I don't want to persecute anyone, or hurl anyone into
a lake of fire. I just want the state to be neutral among
religions, and between religion and non-religion. Fire-eaters
like Duncan may choose to run around with bigotry disguised
as theological purity installed in their craniums like malware
on a PC, but, man!, what wasted energy in maintaining oneself
as a little ball of hate!

I don't believe in a ghod, but if a loving one as described by
many sects actually existed, what would it do with these assholes
so committed to the version they have dreamed up for themselves
who supposedly created souls inherently unworthy of being saved,
"just because?"

Both Catholicism and Calvinism are weird. One finds oneself
hoping that, when Great Cthulhu does rise from his slumber, that
he eats the "elect" last. :) *

As for incredulity about transubstantiation leading to
atheism, rather than church-shopping for a sect with
less ridiculous claims, blame the various dogmawallas
who push the "you have to believe all of it" attitude
on people who would otherwise be "Caeteria Catholics"
or selective believers in other faiths. Once doubt
about omething significant pops up, it isn't a far
journey to examine the whole house of cards. For me,
it wasn't any of those "mysteries" of the liturgy or
sacraments, it was the problem of evil, and the inadequacy
of theodicy.

I did toy with the idea that there might have been a creator
that was less than omnipotent, and due to his being "underpowered"
made a hash of building his universe. In that case "evil" is a
bug that tech support hasn't got a fix for yet. Occam's razor
sent that theory to the bit-bucket, though it has resonance in
various works of science fiction and fantasy.

Oh, and if he ever existed, Josh didn't die for anybody.
He may have been anointed at some time in his life, but
so have many others, including myself. I'm no "christ,"
or I'm as much of one as he would have been. it's just oil
people. You heat it in a pan and saute food.

Kevin R

* for the benefit of the hard-core TULIP aficionados and
the sedevacantists reading the group, this is a "joke."
I don't ACTUALLY think "the elder ghodz" as described by
H P Lovecraft in his fiction are real entities.

You're the one crashed our party. We're here to talk to other atheists
about how Christians try to teach Genesis as science in public
schools, and things of that nature.
Think about it, Kev. If you atheist have nothing, which is what you
wrote above, then your words are still meaningless, because everyone
would have a different interpretation of those words.

The Secretariat for the Liturgy has increasingly received from
bishops
and
pastors inquiries regarding priests, deacons and the faithful who are unable to
consume consecrated wheat hosts or consecrated wine at Mass.
Why are they unable to consume such things? Because it doesn't change
into the Blood of Christ. I was lied to by the Church. So I quit.
No, you were not lied to by the Church.
A member of the Satanic Roman Catholic cult told you a lie, just like they
tell everybody who joins their cult.

It's a spiritual consecration.

John 6:54-56New International Version (NIV)
54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise
them up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is real food and my blood is real
drink. 56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in
them.

Your sheer ignorance did you in.

I gather you never connected the dots between the "passover lamb fully consumed"
and the "New Lamb of God" in Jesus. I gather you also never connected with the
Eucharist prayers where the priest says "and so Father, we bring you these
gifts. We ask you to make them holy by the power of your spirit that they
become the body and blood of your Son, Jesus, at whose command we celebrate this
eucharist."

You see, we are Christians in something you never had - our Faith.

The Bible says don't worship graven images, and the churches and
cathedrals all have a statue of a "lamb" over the altar that everyone is
expected to bow down to every time they enter and leave or cross from
one side to the other.

The whole question, therefore, concerns simply the purpose of God in the
mission of his Son.
Redemption form slavery to sin.
If you're no longer a slave to sin why do you pile on the pork chops,
lie on the newsgroup, and spread rumors that people are gay?
A slave has no choice. Atheists have a choice but make a bad one.
I'm 115 lbs and don't lie on newsgroups. When we stand before God we'll
see what he says about gluttons and liars. I'll mention that I quit his
church because the archdiocese let it slip they were lying about the
wine turning to blood with their actions with alcoholic Fr. Bryan.
Anything to hang onto a priest during the ongoing priest shortage, eh?
You quit the RCC because they lied to you about wine turning to blood?
None of the other lies were enough? I'm genuinely curious, because I
grew up in the Church of England, and quit when I was 7 because nobody
had a good answer for the problem of evil.

Except there's a proposal that says that the net energy of the
universe, positive and negative combined, is zero.

I've posted this to Andrew, and to Earl (silly me, thinking that
Earl would actually read it). Footnotes by Hawking et. al. are
illuminating.

If the Creator is omniscient, omnipotent and omnibenevolent, then evil

Honestly, this is pretty basic stuff.

That is a good question. The problem many have in understanding
this issue is that they have a very narrow and limited vision. They
don't understand that in the big picture evil will be a thing of the
past, and that in all future ages there will be harmony and peace.

Since God is omnibenevolent, He *must allow* disobedience and
rebellion. Otherwise He would be a tyrant. So that's what is being
played out here now. It is permitted only on a -temporary- basis.

The rebellion started long ago, in Heaven. You may read about it

Not necessarily.
Oh? I can assure you that if I were omniscient, omnipotent and
omnibenevolent, I wouldn't allow evil to happen.
If you wouldn't *allow* evil to happen then you would
be a tyrant, and tyrants are -not- omnibenevolent.
*Human* tyrants are not omnibenevolent because they are human and
therefore fallible.

Your god is supposed to be all-knowing and infallible. He does not make

Do you know the meaning of the word "omnibenevolent"? In what case
would allowing evil to happen be any kind of good?
That is a good question. The problem many have in understanding
this issue is that they have a very narrow and limited vision. They
don't understand that in the big picture evil will be a thing of the
past, and that in all future ages there will be harmony and peace.
Scant comfort for those who are victims today. When Hutus in Rwanda
were burned alive in their churches, do you really think they died happy
in the thought that "in the big picture evil will be a thing of the
past, and that in all future ages there will be harmony and peace"?

You are as monstrous as your god.

Evil "happened" when man disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden.

God allowed man the choice to either obey or disobey Him.

If God had not given man the free will to either obey or disobey Him,
we would all be like mindless robots, unable to love or to respond to

*sigh.

So let's get this straight. God's omniscient, so it already knew the
outcome ahead of time. Knew it all along, and allowed it all to
happen.

And you're ok with that.

Says absolutely everything I need to know about your character.

Would have been absolutely trivial to design people incapable of evil;
heck would have been absolutely trivial to design systems where
hurricanes don't wipe out millions of people, and yet we have these
things happening.

If I were omniscient and omnipotent, I would have foreseen all these
things and designed otherwise... you know, because that would be the
right thing to do.

If you were omniscient and omnipotent, and you didn't... what would
that say about you?

Honestly, think more before you post.

You're goddamned right I'll talk back to him. I'll start with the
injustice of having two people only a few days old who wanted to be more
like their parent (what child doesn't?) eating a fruit they were told
was wrong to eat before they even knew what the word "wrong" meant,
because that knowledge was conferred by the fruit, and then attributing

Eve herself admitted to the serpent that disobeying God would be wrong.

"And the woman said to the serpent, 'We may eat of the fruit of the trees
in the garden, but God said, 'You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree
that
is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.'"

Eve obviously understood the command not to eat the fruit, and the
negative consequences there would be if she ate it.

The whole question, therefore, concerns simply the purpose of God in the
mission of his Son. What was the design of Christ’s coming into the world,
and doing and suffering all He actually did and suffered? Was it merely
to make the salvation of all men possible; to remove the obstacles which
stood in the way of the offer of pardon and acceptance to sinners? or, Was
it specially to render certain the salvation of his own people, i.e., of
those given to Him by the Father? The latter question is affirmed by
Augustinians, and denied by their opponents. It is obvious that if there
be no election of some to everlasting life, the atonement can have no
special reference to the elect. It must have equal reference to all mankind.
But it does not follow from the assertion of its having a special reference
to the elect that it had no reference to the non-elect. Augustinians readily
admit that the death of Christ had a relation to man, to the whole human
family, which it had not to the fallen angels. It is the ground on which
salvation is offered to every creature under heaven who hears the gospel;
but it gives no authority for a like offer to apostate angels. It moreover
secures to the whole race at large, and to all classes of men, innumerable
blessings, both providential and religious. It was, of course, designed to
produce these effects; and, therefore, He died to secure them. In view of
the effects which the death of Christ produces in the relation of all mankind
to God, it has in all ages been customary with Augustinians to say that
Christ died “sufficienter pro omnibus, efficaciter tantum pro electis;”
sufficiently for all, efficaciously only for the elect. There is a sense,
therefore, in which He died for all, and there is a sense in which He died
for the elect alone. The simple question is, Had the death of Christ a
reference to the elect which it had not to other men? Did He come into the
world to secure the salvation of those given to Him by the Father, so that
the other effects of his work are merely incidental to what was done for the
attainment of that object?
