Born and Raised into Catholicism,

and honestly the only Positive thing that came out of it was the 10 Commandments.

Started leaving it in my mid 30's and was totally gone in early 60's, it took a lot of years but I made it and with some help from 2 others (quite out there people) who left too.

One can never go wrong in life following the 10 Commandments.

My Father was a Roman Catholic but I've never paid much attention to the ten commandments.
I'd rather just,
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you and
love thy neighbor as thyself and honor thy mother and thy father.

My father was an atheist to the very core, and yet he had more love in his little finger for his fellow man, than most Christians have in their entire being, and I am assured that he is now at rest in Christ Jesus, who said to the Pharisee, the whole law is fulfilled in these two commandments, "Love God with your whole body, with all your mind and with all your soul and love your neighbour as yourself." If you do this you will inherit everlasting life.

It was the Logos God from whom all things originated, it was through Him, by Him and for Him that all things were created and without Him, not one thing was created that was created.

So, how can you say that you love God and yet hate your neighbour who God has become, so in actual fact the whole law is fulfilled in that one command, "Love your neighbour as you love yourself and do unto them, only that which you would have done unto yourself.

Do you impose these laws on the society around you; "Do not harm me or mine, do not kill me or mine, do not steal from me or mine, do not bring false accusations against me or mine, do not have sex with my partner, etc, etc, etc.

If you break the very law that you impose of the society around you, you have passed judgement on yourself.

On your father, my father "confessed" in the last 3 months of his life, I spent t that time with him to get him thru to the end, that he Never believed. He could NEVER ever mention this during his marriage and life. He had sisters who claimed being catholic and most of them were nasty nasty women.

As for dad and love, he didn't know the word and if he ever said it, I never heard it. He was an alcoholic all his life, so he never knew who he was nor did any of us know. Pretty tragic for all.

I can't quite call myself an atheist but I sure do question it all and have listened to some good scientific lectures at Cal Tech.

I too am Keen on science, and in most cases, I find that the scientific results, reinforces the truths as revealed in scripture, such as the order of creation, the fact that the planets of our solar system were created before our sun burst into life and light, and that Life had begun to evolve on earth before the sun was created, etc, etc.

Peace to all believers.

Jaminheslth,

It’s even more positive if one considers that as being the 10 Predictions. All of those ‘shall nots’ are an indication that at some unspecified time in the future these various things will no longer occur. God cannot lie so it must be true. Furthermore time is not limited to this mortal life so this is also a promise of the life to come. This is a little too much for longtime Christians to consider….:)

It's actually simpler than that. Just follow the golden rule: Treat others as you would have them treat you.

And what a wonderful world that will be, when all follow the new covenant brought into the world through Jesus?
Peace to all believers.

I personally don't see how following the 'Golden Rule' is so simple and the answer to all the worlds problems, not everyone has the same morals and unfortunately some individuals actually enjoy being treated badly/abused etc: and therefore treat others according to their own tastes.
