Chapter-7 prayer

Prayer is sorta unusual. if you say your prayer is answered could you prove that some God intentionly anwsered it or could it just be a assimilation of events that happened conscientiously to your personal benefit.

praying for the dead. people say they have come back from the dead then wrote books about it the books later turned into movies and thus created a fad where it is cool to "live twice" A individuals belief on this is subject to how much they trust and value the opinion of the person that they are trying to relate to. but truth be told before the publicity these people had they could have concocted a story just to have thier own greedy 15 minutes of fame.

Praying for the dead. i find it pointless to pray for the dead due to how they have no relevance to use. they have a purpose (may be insensitive) but thier purpose is to reporduce everything else is wanted but unnessacary. its a fatal flaw people like to believe that the person they once knew would still be there but if push came to shove then thier dead they no longer exist. and we cant prove off a book that they do exist later after death. Death means to cease to exist. to end. once a life is ended thier is no more.

Chapter 5-Blue book.

The four marks of the church.

Mark 1*(ONE)-the church is one, everything and everyone is united through the functions as one body and the people are like cells each with a individuail job.

Mark 2-(HOLY)-given to nthe church by the HOly Spirit itself.

Mark 3-(CATHOLIC)- meaning universal, along with unity everything has a meaning and a purpose to go with the

Mark 4- (Apostolic)-this has to do with Christ choosing his twelve apostles. God choose the twelve for a reason, each different and sometimes despised person. he showed it this that anyone has the potential to go and follow something they believe in (right or not) all it takes is will power and thing ive learned is faith is different for everyone but is extremely fundamental in any religion-based relationship regarding things un-proven. religion is a made up cooping mechanism that people use to boost their own self-esteem. We all are capable but religion is when we tell ourselves we can 'do better'

Chapter 7- Parousia, The Last Things.

the last things are Death, Judgment Heaven and Hell.

This (under the belief that we have a afterlife) is everything our soul can do without having a body.

Pariosia- this is the second coming of Jesus not the rapture but where he chooses the faithful and gives them the eternal life they have been craving.
