comment Christianity certainty and other religions certainty
Re: "if there was an answer to this, there would be...exactly one religion or zero religions". Not necessarily. People's beliefs are constantly getting disputed and shut down by other beliefs. Rarely does that change the person's belief. Chances are, they'll say in their head "I just have a lack of knowledge and understanding to back up this debate. They should speak to so-and-so [enter belief specialist(s) here].", and their faith sustains them.

You don't think it would be your fault if you shot up a school? Seriously? What happened to your conscience? And I didn't say it was the baby's fault.. And I don't want to repeat myself.

You misunderstood me. Men have free will. Men of God can be inspired by the Holy Spirit. These two things are not contradictions. You can think of being inspired by the Holy Spirit as a self willing act of asking God to motivate the things you do and say. This comes in relationship with God.

I wonder if I should move all of these comments into the answer.

Who made you? By your understanding, it would be God's fault if you went and shot up a school? No, it would not. God gave you your own free will, just like A&E had theirs. That is the consequence of being born into a world of sin, death, and disease. Jesus came to free us from sin, and exampled this in healing diseases, illnesses, and raising people from the dead. To who wrote the bible: They were indeed men, men of God, influenced by the Holy Spirit.

Do you not think that the unfathomable God of the universe could not make His own book?

That is not correct. God does not cause that to happen. It is the result of the decision that Adam and Eve made. If you are going to blame someone, blame them. God is not at fault.

Why is it fair when one person does drugs and their babies come out deformed? For such a child to live a happy life, they must learn to forgive the actions of their parents. That's reality. And when they find forgiveness in the Lord, it makes that much easier. We are forgiven so we can forgive.

But a "day" to God is a thousand years (2 Peter 3:8), and Adam lived to be 930 years old. And men after, up until the flood, lived roughly that age, but not exceeded 1000 (to my knowledge).

It wasn't "wrong". They had no knowledge of right and wrong yet. They knew, however, with the general knowledge of an adult, that they were going in opposition to their maker and provider. God gave them life and abundance and they went in opposition to God out of selfishness. You are actually lucky, because they probably had thought that when God said "in the day that you eat of it, you will surely die" they probably interpreted that as a literal earth day, and thus made the decision to kill everyone in the world since no one would have been born.

@Jonathan You are not inheriting their sin, you are inheriting the sinful nature that they became.

comment What is the Catholic view of the rapture?
In the rapture, its not the "good" that are taken up.. as there are none that are good (Romans 3:10), its those who are in Christ. And the remaining will endure a 7 year tribulation, as described in Daniel and Revelations, in which they can choose to accept Christ.

comment What is the Catholic view of the rapture?
"...we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord..." 1 Thess 4:15 (Amplified) - obviously Paul is talking about the end of times, and by "we" he means those in Christ. I doubt he meant that he would still be alive at "the coming of the Lord"

comment Faith without reason?
@MarcGravell Have you read Daniel? I think all the amazing prophecies coming true that can be shown through our own history counts as concrete evidence, no? And what about what God in the whirlwind says to Job? There's no way Job or any man could've known about some of the things God says to him. Just some examples.
