    Jun 12 2013: I am sorry that you feel this way. Yes, i do agree that Catholicism's Dogma have severely hindered the message of Jesus Christ's true message. But the pure message is just that and if a person were to read the bible themselves, instead of being led by one person's interpretation, then that person will be shown the light of truth. Of course the Old Testament is taken from the Torah, it is the foundation of the religion. It chronicles God's chosen people and the course of their lives with Him at their side, even through the Babylon invasion and the rebuilding after. ONE, why would the Jewish people concoct a story about the Savior coming to Earth and then admitting crucify Him, makes no sense. TWO, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of letters documenting Christ being seen walking among the people after His crucifixion. THREE, i dont know what the Catholic church has done to get under your skin, but let it go. Their dogma makes for great movies, but there is not much truth in their procedures when it comes to biblical truth about Jesus Christ.

        Jun 12 2013: The Roman Catholic Religion was put together so all the sects of christianity that formed back then would stop killing each other, like Al Qaeda on Tweek and Steroids. I agree that many atrocities have been made in the name of Christianity, and my heart weeps at this because of the fools that perpetrated the lie. Once again, look at the foundation of the Catholic church, Peter. Their foundation isn't with Christ but with a person whom they thought would be a rallying point. Like many of the other sects of Christianity that based their salvation on what a single human being has interpreted. And, All Christian religions originated from Christ and the Original 7 churches, not catholicism.

      Jun 12 2013: that's why i prefer agnosticism because i don't have to listen to interpretations of people. and i do believe that it's only people's interpretations that build one religion. jesus christ did not invent christianity, his followers did.

        Jun 12 2013: I must apologize for i am not well versed in the ins and outs of agnosticism. The only thing i know the is the most important revelation to take from the bible is that believing in Jesus Christ and his life, as accounted to us in the bible, is the one key to salvation and entrance into Heaven, when it happens.

        Jun 12 2013: I agree Cheyenne, that there are many different interpretations of the same information.

        Jonathan,
        You say... "everyone else's interpretation and guidelines and everything else that they made up is false."

        Are you aware of how this idea continues to divide and seperate people in our world?
