And indeed a sharp difference between and in between Calvinism and
Catholicism is whether yours a Belief in God to come to rescue you or
whether yours a a Belief of God to come to tell you to share with other.
And not because of what looks wealthy or because of what looks poor: but
because of experiencing in Faith God can give all and take all and not
in Faith for wanting more of God for being poor as experience in so many
other Churches cos exactly the Opposite: God gives us ALL and God even
can give Intelligence as well as Knowledge AND I know that.
And in knowing who I am I know I am Catholic by Faith eventhough no
Religion: I have rceived criticism for hardly visiting other Churches
and I explain I onky can be where I Feel my Fate in Faith as that is

how I AM JEW

us the lack of solidarity and understanding among nations.God was there
to teach us how people´s indifference towards other human
beings´grief is one of the worst sins ever.!!
