For me, I’m kind of open to anything now. In 2018 if you tried to tell me that The Nazis and The Vatican are in cahoots and built a giant bunker in Antartica to cover up that the earth is flat I’d be like “bro, maybe just stick to 911” but now? After seeing almost every government on the planet synchronise and oppress us as a team? There’s nothing too far fetched.

How about y’all?

Do you mind me asking if you’re Christian? I only ask because I struggle to see how you can be Christian but reject Catholicism. For example Jesus tells his disciples to listen to people’s confessions. If they forgive them they are forgiven, if not the sins are retained. That seems SO much like the Catholic idea of confession. Protestants don’t seem to have a good answer to this when their faith is based so heavily on “accept Jesus into your heart and you’re saved!!”

I believe that forgiveness of all sin I ever sinned or ever will sin has already been forgiven and the payment for my sins was completed by Jesus on the cross before He died. My acceptance of Jesus's offer of salvation is permanent and covers all the sins I committed before and after I accepted His offer. My sins were all "future" to Him on the cross, he knows them all, even the ones I haven't committed yet.

While I would ask forgiveness of my brothers and sisters in Christ if I sinned against them, my sins in God's sight are already all dealt with.

There's another component to this: salvation changes a person. We recieve a new life. Our old life was rebellious to God and could only sin, no matter how hard we tried (Romans chapters 1-7). Our new life has the ability to do God's will, please God, and not sin (Romans 8 and onwards). Jesus died for our sins, plural, and also died for our sinful nature, to give us a new life that is able to live without sinning. (All of us mess up from time to time, we own it before God knowing we are loved and forgiven, and we own it before our brothers and sisters in Christ so they can help us.)

Ok, but what if one of your brother or sisters doesn’t forgive you? Because it says

Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”

I believe this verse is talking about not individual sins but "the sins" ie "all sins" ie salvation.

So if a diciple says, based on the Holy Spirit, "your sins are forgiven you" then all your sins are forgiven - not because the diciple said it but because the Holy Spirit completed the work and the diciple can see that.

Read Acts 8:9-24. The apostles were very careful in what they did and needed to see genuineness. The Apostle Peter told the man (Simon) to pray to God for forgiveness. Peter didn't forgive him, but God could.

Because Catholisicm has a pope that claims to speak for God, when even me, who is not a Christian, knows that no one speaks for God.

So how TF you guys get hoodwinked into that shit is beyond me.

And the Vatican hoards more gold than a dragon, while still asking for donations to fund their churches.

Check out Confessional Lutheranism! I’m convinced it is the most biblically pure doctrine. The Catholic Church purified and cleansed by the Gospel.

Do you have an actual point to discuss?

Jesus as reality and/or tulpa is real and powerful 💝 The vatican is the rebranded caesarian roman empire.

No it isn't. Rome was sacked by the Goths. Catholicism was started by those Arian Goths. And yes, these were Hitler's Arians who were from what is now Sweden. You know, where the people all have blonde hair and blue eyes.

The pope is not blue eyed. Venetians. Swiss.

Swiss guard the pope. These are the facts.

The pope doesnt speak swedish. Speaks italian.

The pope is a puppet.

Swedes started it?

It's not until like 900 A.D that Nordics could choose to stay with the old Gods and get slaughtered, or embrace Christianity and not get slaughtered.

Sweden wasnt even a unified country when Jesus died

(Quick google search says Catholicism started around the death of Jesus, so even if you +- 600 years your theory dont make sense)
