HOME  Why its a mistake to give the Catholic Church support via membership or donations

 

Roman Catholic - Lies and Insincerity 

The Pope being the as opposed to a Vicar of Christ is totally unbiblical. When Christ told Peter he was the rock on which he would build his Church that does not imply Peter was given any authority to be supreme authority in the Church. A rock could mean biggest and best support and biggest friend of the Church. It could mean a spiritual father but not a spiritual authority. Roman Catholicism is scary in how it reads more into Bible texts than what is there. Pope Francis's opinion on any matter be it religious or whatever means no more than yours or mine. He has no right to speak in such a way that he hopes people will do what he asks just because he thinks he is head of the Church. The Church has no right to say he is its rock for that makes it as big a fraud as he is.

The Church has no right to be taken seriously in its teaching or to require you to take it seriously. It is pure evil how it says you should be damned forever if you reject its teaching.

What this cult says and does

To doubt what God has revealed is to call God a liar. Itís a sin when it happens wilfully. To doubt is to think you might be wrong. If you wonít let yourself doubt that shows that you have a neurosis and are mentally ill about religion and are afraid of the truth. If you really believed, you wouldnít be afraid of the truth or afraid of doubt.  To doubt what God has revealed is not to call God a liar for God being God cannot lie but to wonder if he really revealed it. The Church doesnít want you to know if it made up its doctrines while pretending they were from God. Banning doubt is necessary if you want power over others through religion.

The worst lie is how the Church says all the Bible is inspired and from God so "if anyone receive not as sacred and canonical the said books entire and with all their parts as they have been used to be read in the Catholic church, and as they are contained in the Old Latin Vulgate editionÖ let him be anathema" Council of Trent. Vatican 1, 1870 repeated this teaching, so the Church "accepts and venerates all the books of the Old and New Testaments, since one God is the author of both, with equal piety and reverence".

Why this is Bad

To suggest you know or believe God cannot lie and that you would be able to doubt his veracity is ridiculous.

What this cult says and does

The Church likes to have nobody saying anything critical about it

Why this is Bad

To let dishonesty like that thrive would be criminal. The notion some have that we should criticise everything we want to except religion is ludicrous for religion tries to make people afraid to think for themselves unlike everything else so it should be criticised more than anything

What this cult says and does

Though we can do good works without God inspiring them and helping us to do them, only good works done with the help of God (grace) are efficacious for salvation. God even helps us obtain the gift of faith which is why we describe it as a supernatural gift from God enabling us to believe all he has revealed to his Church

Why this is Bad

Anybody can have a feeling or thought or inspiration and imagine it is from God. Student priests are certain that God has given them the grace of a vocation to the priesthood and the next time you look they are convinced they were wrong! To say that God is inspiring your thoughts and feelings when you know day by day you could be inspiring them yourself is total dishonesty and arrogance. It is the stuff out of which madness is made. It is not God these people are reaching out to, it is what they want God to be. Itís idolatry.

What this cult says and does

Christ founded one, holy, Catholic and apostolic Church which is one in faith

Why this is Bad

Two people believing the same thing does not make them one in faith.

John and Mary believe that Jesus rose again. John believes because he feels it. Mary believes it because she mistakenly thinks all scholars believe in it. They only share a conclusion but not the faith. John trusts his own feelings and Mary trusts the scholars or what she thinks they teach. John and Mary are not one in faith or trust. They are inventing their faith and nobody agrees on why they believe. Each person invents a faith anew for themselves that just happens to look like the faith of others. This is proven from the fact that it is not evidence that causes faith for few agree on the evidence and it is only interpretation based on what they wish to believe. They say faith is God showing them the truth but we know from the previous discussion that they know and we know this isnít true. It is really what they guess and feel God is telling them that causes their faith not evidence or God. Itís of human origin. If it wasnít believers would believe for the same reasons for God would be helping them see what the evidence actually says. There is no real faith without evidence and you know you cannot truly believe that John stole the cashbox unless you have evidence that it must have been him and nobody else. The faith and faith content each person chooses is just a random selection. It only coincides with what others believe for the sake of handiness or of fitting in with the crowd or because they happened to have had the same tastes. The Christian has no right to take his faith seriously. Bigotry is at the root of it when he does. He may do nice sweet ecumenical things but the basic attitude is still bigoted.

What this cult says and does

We proclaim the message of Christ in its fullness

Why this is Bad

You hide nearly all of your nastiest doctrines in books that few read to fool your sheep who then think you are great for you hide your true colours. Jesus talked a lot about Hell in the gospels, he told the Pharisees and scribes exactly what he thought of them and the apostles did the same. Yet you go about all sweetness and light. For example, how many Catholics know that oral sex is a sin and that Christ taught that exorcism should be performed often for demonic possession is very common (Matthew 12:45) or that saints were canonised in the past because of the extreme torments they inflicted on themselves? Even your own complain at your preferring popularity over teaching what your God says must be taught.

What this cult says and does

There is no faith without evidence for faith is accepting that the evidence says something is likely to be true. As scripture says faith is the evidence of things unseen (Hebrews 11:1).

Why this is Bad

But nearly every religion claims that reason and miracles support its teaching and the Church only pays attention to miracles that say what it wants to hear. For example, UFO miracles, spiritualist miracles, and even most Catholic miracle claims are all dismissed without even being investigated decently or at all! It does not believe in miracles it only uses them to bait converts. There is no evidence so there can be no faith. It is just feeling when it is not faith.

What this cult says and does

Welcoming people to the sacraments and Communion (the sacrament of unity with God and with one another!) who havenít made peace with others

Why this is Bad

Jesus said that if you offer something to God make amends to your brother first and a promise to do that isnít good enough (Matthew 5:23,24). The Church totally ignores the command of Jesus that a sinner who wouldnít repent and who got a few warnings must be ostracised and expelled from the Church if he or she ignores a warning from the Church. He didnít say what kind of sin but just ďif you have something against your brotherĒ, so he certainly wanted adulterers and homosexuals barred. Also Paul the apostle wrote that sex outside marriage is a sin against the Holy Spirit for unlike other sins it is a sin against the body which is his Temple (1 Corinthians 6:13-20). This implies that such a sin is the worst sin of all and sanctions bigotry against people who are sexually liberated so no wonder Paul put a curse and an excommunication on a man living with woman in Corinth in the hope that Satan would torment him (1 Corinthians 5). The Church spent nearly all of its existence persecuting and stirring up hatred against others and heretics so it must have been hypocritical all that time. Before Vatican II you wouldnít let Catholics attend Protestant funerals!

What this cult says and does

The sacrament of the sick forgives the sins of the dying and saves them from everlasting damnation in Hell

Why this is Bad

Such is the fear of dying without a priest among Catholics that we can be sure that this doctrine has killed many who found themselves in a serious car accident through sheer fear and made their suffering worse for no priest was available or could make it quickly enough. No caring parent would teach their child that Catholicism is true. This faith puts faith before people.

What this cult says and does

Encouraging Mortal Sinners to praise God and pray and come to Mass

Why this is Bad

Unrepented mortal sin is rejecting a relationship with God so how can this be sincere? Mortal sin rejects God and so it rejects his people too. They might be accepted as friends but they are rejected in so far as they are his people. So the Church wants sinners to become hypocrites and claims that this is good! What kind of conversion will result from such hypocrisy? Why should such converts be believed when they say they repent? They went to Mass to fellowship with people who they reject as brethren in God!

What this cult says and does

The sacraments have the power to make us holy and cure our sinful inclinations

Why this is Bad

They donít work too well. People that donít get them are often better than those who do. Priests are just spiritual quacks.

What this cult says and does

Disobeying the moral teaching of the Church leads to much suffering

Why this is Bad

You assume that contraception is bad and that divorce is bad to give two out of several possible examples. You then look for the bad effects and condemn them to people for having these effects. What you are really doing is forgetting or obscuring the good. You are making it look like you condemn them for the bad effects while even if the bad effects didnít happen you would still be condemning for they are not the reason you are condemning at all. If they were, you would be looking at the effects and then deciding rather than assuming they are wrong and then trying to bend the evidence to back you up.

What this cult says and does

The Church is infallible and never changes its doctrine

Why this is Bad

Then why do you embrace ecumenism since Vatican II while the popes and councils rejected all ecumenism before then? Ecumenism is either each religion coming together to work towards becoming one Church and each one wants itself to be that Church or it is religions agreeing to differ and be separate but friends categorising one religion as good for salvation as another. Either interpretation denies the Catholic claim that it is the one true Church.

The Church says that there has been no revelation since the apostles died and that Catholics must believe this to be Catholics. Yet she claims to be infallible but says this infallibility is not revelation or inspiration but just protection from error.

God must be revealing new things to stop the Church making errors. Infallibility is claiming new revelation and the Church knows it. Infallibility the main doctrine of the Church contradicts itself.

What this cult says and does

We believe in venial sin, sin that does not reject a relationship with God but which just damages it

Why this is Bad

God is good without limit so he hates evil without limit so he finds all sin hateful without limit so venial sin cannot exist when it is that offensive.

What is terrible is how a religion can say people go to Hell forever for some sins when it arbitrarily decides what sins these will be! That is evil in the extreme.

What this cult says and does

Capital punishment should only happen very rarely for even today there is so much corruption and innocent people could be executed on trumped up charges

Why this is Bad

The God you say wrote the Bible commanded it for nearly everything in the Old Testament and then in a day when guilt was not as easily or surely proved as today and God left a nation who he said was disobedient and stubborn and inclined excessively to evil to administer it Ė a corrupt nation!

What this cult says and does

We are obligated to accept the Bible as the word of God for he is its author

Why this is Bad

But you know it contradicts itself and only to read it is to see how silly it is. For example, Jesus said that he couldnít be using the Devil to cast out demons for if Satan did that he would have no kingdom as if Satan needed to possess people to have a kingdom! (Mark 3:24). The gospel claim that the Pharisees and scribes who had been planning to get rid of Jesus for years used false witnesses who could not get their stories straight to convict him is totally absurd for they had plenty of time to plan it well and coaching isnít difficult. Itís a damn lie.

What this cult says and does

God commands that babies be baptised which makes them members of his Church and obligated to learn the true faith

Why this is Bad

Nobody has the right to indoctrinate vulnerable children. They can be taught right and wrong and what consoles them without Roman Catholicism. They should get a broad non-dogmatic instruction and helped to find what spirituality or non-spirituality works for them. Such conditioning as required by the Catholic God is child abuse. It gives the faith an unfair advantage and causes bigotry because the children know nothing else

What this cult says and does

God feeds us with his body and blood at Mass, but you cannot receive if you are guilty of serious sin that you havenít repented

Why this is Bad

You say it is the power of God that changes the person so what do we need to eat his body and drink his blood for? This is magic not religion. God taught in the Old Testament that pagans praying to idols was silly for the idols couldnít protect themselves from harm and the Catholics worship vulnerable bread that is thrown out when it gets stale as God! Jesus said that to be sure you are really genuinely good, you must pray in secret and do good discreetly and here we see a rite that contradicts this. In the parable of the Pharisee and the Publican, Jesus said God rejected the Pharisee for he thanked God that he was better than the publican. The Pharisee wasnít claiming to be perfect for if he was there would have been nothing to thank God for. The message of Jesus is clear that going to communion is acting like the Pharisee.

What this cult says and does

God is not a God of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33)

Why this is Bad

Then why is nothing about your religion simple? If you have to prove for example that there is nothing stopping any intelligent and careful person from believing in the divine origin of the papacy, to choose one of several possible examples, it takes you books and books to prove it. And even then most scholars laugh at your efforts. If the pope really is the rock the Church is built on that will be plain and all that effort wouldnít be necessary. Occamís Razor says that it is only deceit that requires too much effort to make it look plausible. Its only a religion that is simple and straightforward that can be Catholic that is intended to suit everybody including the questioner who is not very theologically literate

What this cult says and does

The Church does many good works

Why this is Bad

The evil man does some good as he does evil for he sees that evil is good under the circumstances. We do not praise good that involves harm but we condemn it for refusing to be good enough. The Bible condemns good that comes from sources that refuse to be better (James 3:8-12; Mark 10:18). The works of the Church are just telling God that the Church will do good on its terms not on goodís terms so its not good in intention but rebellious. What about the Church spending millions on Churches, on producing saints and investigating miracles, on fighting on public relations, taking money off the poor and starving in Africa to build churches and support priests while Christ told the rich man to give all he had to the poor? The Church answers that he was trying to break the manís attachment to material things but you donít need to ask for all the wealth to be given away for that and he did say afterwards of the rich in general that it is easier for a camel to get through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to turn to God! How terrible it is for the Church to refuse to save the lives of the starving and claim to be Christís Church. You claim to have the right to bring the whole world into the Church. You say that it is your chief duty and the supreme good work to win souls to honour God. And you let them die. Are you going to preach to corpses and convert them?

What this cult says and does

Catholics should die for their faith if necessary but we know few would!

Why this is Bad

Then most are hypocrites for they would refuse to die for their faith though they claim the right to say that God uses suffering to make people better people. That is approving of the suffering and it is fanaticism and vile to say things like that about people over a belief. They need proof to have the right and they selfishly turn their backs on the fanaticism of dying for God to propound a fanatical assessment of other peoples suffering!

What this cult says and does

The Catholic Church is holy and produces many saints

Why this is Bad

How could the saints canonised by such a dishonest Church which they supported in its dishonesty be real saints despite the miracles they do to show they are saints? The top thinkers of the Church must know that the religion is deception and untrue or at least that there is nothing believable about it so what does that say about the rest of the clergy?

What this cult says and does

Racism is a sin and racists hide their prejudice by making it look like something else

Why this is Bad

Then we must take the nasty doctrines of the Catholic Church as evidence that it is a nasty religion cloaked in sweetness. We have no other way of judging people but by their teachings and works. You donít consider a Muslim who stones his wife to death because his religious beliefs tell him to be anything other than a monstrous murderer. Belief is no excuse for evil.God does not live in babies until they are baptized for they have original sin.

God rejects the babies because of something Adam chose for them! How ridiculous and uncharitable. Baptism heals original sin and the tendency to sin, it is the new birth, we become a new creation and like Jesus and our old sin-loving nature is changed

You know that is a lie for most baptised people fall away and those that donít tend to follow their own version of Christianity and accordingly are heretics

What this cult says and does

The Church teaches that marriage must be entered into with the greatest caution. Confirmation is when you confirm your baptism and the vows made for you. Confirmation is making an eternal commitment to the Church. Marriage is only making a commitment to a person for life. Confirmation intimately unites you with God. It is like a marriage with the Holy Spirit.

Why this is Bad

Curiously the Church teaches that great caution is necessary for marriage though it teaches that confirmation as a member of the Church is more important it does not advise such caution! When have you heard of confirmation candidates being left free to opt out of the rite? When has the Church let them read books against the Church so that they can hear both sides and decide?

What this cult says and does

Capital punishment is never justified except in extreme circumstances to protect lives

Why this is Bad

The Bible which you say is the word of God commands capital punishment by stoning for adulterous people and gays and heretics and says God said it.

What this cult says and does

We believe that the worst thing possible is being part of a false religion

Why this is Bad

Then why do you pray with and ďrespectĒ other religions? You only tolerate what you consider to be not too bad or what you donít care much about.

What this cult says and does

We love Protestants and want them to go to Heaven.

Why this is Bad

Then why are they barred from confession? Protestants are religious free thinkers and could hold that they need to go to a priest for forgiveness

What this cult says and does

Homosexual desire is disordered, but we are not saying homosexuals are disordered.

Why this is Bad

Of course it is saying they are disordered and sick. If John has the flu and is a sick man then the homosexual is disordered.

What this cult says and does

When we say the pope is infallible we mean not that God inspires him more than anybody else but that God doesnít let him err when he studies and comes to a conclusion that he teaches officially to the Church

Why this is Bad

You say infallibility is not inspiration but inspiration must be involved if God is able to help the pope reach the correct conclusion!

What this cult says and does

Sex is a language. It tells the person that you want to be with them forever and give yourself to them forever. That is why sex outside marriage is wrong.

Why this is Bad

If so then why do you allow husbands and wives to separate or to remarry after the husband or wife dies? When a husband has sex with his wife then he is saying to her, ďI give myself to you but only as long as we get along and you donít cheat on meĒ.

What this cult says and does

Divorce is an unnatural sin for husband and wife are closer than father and daughter and you cannot divorce your father. Your wife is still your wife after a divorce so divorce cannot dissolve marriage.

Why this is Bad

Then you let an unbaptised married couple divorce and remarry if one of them was baptised after the wedding and they want to part.

What this cult says and does

We forbid divorce for the sake of the children

Why this is Bad

Then why do you consider unmarried couples to be free to go and break up despite their children? Why do you say such relationships must end?

What this cult says and does

Divorce is sinful for you canít promise to take somebody for life and then marry somebody else before they are dead

Why this is Bad

Then why do you allow a baptised person who is married to an unbaptised person to just leave and marry again though you consider the first marriage valid? Of course you believe in divorce. Hate the sin but love the sinner. Our Lord taught us that we should hate sin so much that we should gouge our eye out if it leads us to sin - a metaphor to picture how bad sin was.

If you pretend that the sinner is separate from the sin then how can you be a fair judge of character? Sin reveals the kind of person a sinner is. To hate sin is to condemn the sinner and hate the sinner.

What this cult says and does

Jesus said if your eye draws you to sin gouge it out reflecting how much we should hate sin

Why this is Bad

Thatís bad for us. If we love our neighbours as ourselves we will soon be in the madhouse with all the sin that goes on. Even if we do not judge our neighbour we must live in terror at the thought that they might sin. If sin is as serious as the Church says and as dangerous it makes sense to detest even a tiny chance that somebody might sin.

What this cult says and does

For grave reasons the husband and wife may restrict sex to the infertile period to avoid children but contraception is forbidden for it makes the child an accident not someone to be welcomed

Why this is Bad

If contraception does that then so does this infertile period method

What this cult says and does

Jesus said that you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and mind which is the greatest commandment and the second greatest is loving your neighbour (Mark 12:29-31)

Why this is Bad

So God comes first and loving neighbour second. Then why are Catholics not urged to leave jobs that lead them into sin against God or to leave workplaces that forbid them to pray? You are not putting God first if you sell condoms which he forbids if you are an employee in a shop. Would it be right for you to support a religion that says people will burn in Hell forever for using condoms and that a rapist using a condom sins more than one that does not and that a man should give his wife AIDS rather than use a condom and then sell them? You are vile if you think it would be

What this cult says and does

Contraception makes adultery and fornication easier for it tries to avoid conception

Why this is Bad

The natural method you advocate could do that too.

What this cult says and does

Conception must always be open to life, the infertile period method leaves it up to God to create a life if he should so wish for conception is slightly possible. Let God plan your family.

Why this is Bad

Then why bother with the method if God is trusted that much? Why are you trying to make it harder for him if you trust him?

What this cult says and does

We allow natural family planning when it is necessary to protect the health of the mother but contraception can never be allowed for it seeks to prevent God creating life

Why this is Bad

If sex is for creating life then natural family planning is wrong as it is hoping new life will not be made. When even you agree that family planning is needed for human welfare, you should permit contraception for it is more reliable. If it is all right to have sex while not wanting a child then it is all right to use contraception. To say natural family planning is right and condoms are bad is as silly as saying brushing your teeth with toothpaste is a sin but cleaning them with lemon is not.

What this cult says and does

Abortion is wrong even to save the motherís life because the baby is innocent. Though you can kill in self-defence this is not self-defence and so not allowed. The baby is not doing any harm.

Why this is Bad

We are allowed to kill unjust aggressors even if they are mad as long as it is self-defence. They are innocent. The Church does not really believe this argument about abortion. It is obviously stupid.   Animals are conscious living beings and should be put to sleep when they get too old or sick

Some human beings have so much brain damage that they have the same consciousness as animals and the Church forbids their being put to sleep. The Church says that one is better alive than dead for one has nothing in death. At least when one is alive one has something no matter how much suffering is faced. This reasoning is hypocritically not applied to animals.

What this cult says and does

We must be kind to animals

Why this is Bad

Then why do you gorge on meat from animals that lived in torment and died in torment too?

What this cult says and does

The greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart and soul and mind and strength and the second greatest is to love your neighbour as yourself

Why this is Bad

So loving a dying baby is not as important as loving God but is of secondary importance. This clearly puts belief before people. The Church is not open about this implication so it gets the loyalty of the people by manipulation.

What this cult says and does

Love your neighbour as yourself is a moral rule of the highest wisdom

Why this is Bad

The rule is useless in practice.  People can't agree on what loving your neighbour as yourself is.  Disputes and disagreements are the fabric of life.  Even Jesus believed that love did not mean being sweet but could mean being rude for people's good - he called the Pharisees names.  He upset people by rioting in the Temple.  He broke his mother's heart by going to the cross and endangered his friends.  The rule is just false advertising.   Oversimplifying morality the way Jesus and the Church did with the rule is arrogance and irresponsible and actually uncaring.  Take the rule, Respect life.  To keep the rule we have to keep people who are in the worst of agonies and who are dying alive as long as possible even if it means making their pain worse.  We can't give a dying patient morphine to ease the pain of cancer for the morphine will hasten death.  And then if we deny the rule we end up opening the door to a culture of death. 

What this cult says and does

Saying that God is good and will do what is right but that we must pray

Why this is Bad

Prayer does not change God for he does what he sees is best and we donít always get what we ask for. It does not change us either because what we need to change is our bad attitudes. If prayer helps us change our attitudes, then it is us that changed them not prayer for prayer is not necessary for that. Many people are happy without prayer. If atheism didnít make people happy it wouldnít have any followers. People can pray in vain for years to be delivered from feelings of depression and hatred. It follows that prayer in itself is useless and so is God. Many people have got false comfort from prayer and have ended up worse off. God didnít cause this comfort so the idea that God comforts you in prayer is promoting self-deception. Modern psychologists and therapists have changed many lives without advocating prayer while people praying day and night still havenít improved much. There is nothing better than a person who has made themselves into an improved version of themselves. They might enjoin psychiatrists and counsellors but they use them to help themselves. Religion by insisting on prayer and fellowship with God to change you wants you to think that the end result when you change yourself for the better has little to do with you. Itís evil and not the way to proper satisfaction with your achievements. We must believe in the Bible miracles but we are not required to believe in the miracles of Lourdes and Fatima and others approved by the Church.

What this cult says and does

Miracles are signs from God that our religion is true. We have to believe in the Bible ones but the ones that took place since are optional.

Why this is Bad

So the modern miracles are better verified because of modern science than the Bible ones and it is the hearsay in the Bible from long ago that we are required to believe in! That is a dishonest double-standard. The Church says that no apparition can request anything that might do harm for it is not certain if the apparition is from Heaven or has some unusual cause and yet it accepted the appearances of Mary at Lourdes in 1858 despite her making Bernadette eat plants at an infectious dump and demanding that the people drink from the spring!

A miracle is a miracle, if one should be believed all should be believed. Scientific investigations take place of modern miracles so they should be more believable and more obligatory to believe than the Bible ones from a pre-scientific age!

What this cult says and does

No genuine miracles take place outside of the one true faith or religion

Why this is Bad

You canít know that for you donít investigate most of your own reported miracles and none outside the fold! You are lying. You are manipulating the evidence.

What this cult says and does

God hates sin

Why this is Bad

Then why did he protect the Virgin Mary from original sin in such a way that she never sinned of her own free will and kept sin-free her whole life and not protect us like that?

What this cult says and does

There is no place for violence in religion

Why this is Bad

Your Bible God commanded it a lot especially in the first five books. Jesus caused a riot in the temple on purpose. He refused to walk away from the violent death he knew was coming to him.

What this cult says and does

Venial sin does not mean a break with God but mortal sin does and deserves Hell forever

Why this is Bad

The difference between the two is often arbitrary. Forbidden sexual thoughts are mortal sins while not making a contribution to help the starving live is not

What this cult says and does

We are made holier the more good works we do and God enables us to really deserve Heaven

Why this is Bad

The Protestant doctrine that we are saved once for all and do good works just for gratitude is far nobler

What this cult says and does

Mortal or serious sin deserves everlasting torment in Hell. Those who die in such sin will be punished forever.

Why this is Bad

It is only dying in mortal sin that condemns you to Hell not mortal sin. It can be forgiven before you are dead.

What this cult says and does

The souls in Purgatory cannot help themselves Ė they need us to pray and sacrifice for them so that God can accept this for their sins and let them out quicker.

Why this is Bad

The spirits there are being abused for God is not letting them purify themselves by doing good and by praying. He is ignoring their efforts.

What this cult says and does

Belief in Hell is not vindictive

Why this is Bad

They canít explain how God and the saints can be happy with people suffering in Hell but they say it is possible for it happens. This answer is a copout and therefore uncharitable. No two people believe exactly the same thing for the same reasons. There are as many faiths as people so why do Christians choose a faith that teaches the existence of Hell? Does it not show that they want it to exist?

What this cult says and does

Saying that those who die in serious or Mortal Sin will go to Hell to suffer forever

Why this is Bad

That is just plain hatred after the hypocrisy we have found this cult to be guilty of. You need proof before you can accuse anybody of deserving a hellish eternity and they have no proof and then they expect people not to slander! If you can condone Hell you can condone anything. For that reason alone anybody who defends the doctrine or believes in it is evil. That Christians find it distasteful to try and condone God sexually abusing a child and acceptable to have a God who lets a boy of eight years old pay in Hell for sexually touching himself shows that there is an undertone of malice in the doctrine.
