Pope Francis tells 3 million young people at World Youth Day to rebuild the Church of Christ. http://wydcentral.org/francis-incites-3-milli...

That Church of Christ has 3 million Christians in one place, not 30 or less under one tent.

If Pope Francis desires to do the will of God, he will repent all the false doctrines of the CC and tell people to repent and do whatever Master YHWY Y'shua said to do. Master Y'shua said to repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand. God winked at ignorance in the past, but now commands all men to repent and believe His Son. His Son never said to 'hear the Pope'. Even Mary said: 'Do whatever He tells you to do.'

Belonging to a small Church doesn't prove you're right, but neither does walking along the broad pathway that leads to death!

What Church has been for here for all the ages? The one he started and said will not fail.

Do you think have 3 million young people sleeping on a beach waiting for the Vicar of Christ to speak and pray with them is not a sign Jesus has kept his word?

You listen to yourself. You are your Church. You read a Bible one man made 40 years ago.

PaPa Francis:

Dear friends, never forget that you are the field of faith! You are Christ’s athletes! You are called to build a more beautiful Church and a better world. Let us lift our gaze to Our Lady. Mary helps us to follow Jesus, she gives us the example by her own “yes” to God:“I am the servant of the Lord; let it be done to me as you say”(Lk 1:38). All together, let us join Mary in saying to God: let it be done to me as you say. Amen!

Interesting that PaPa couldn't manage to tell all those people what Christ did for them, but instead spent his time telling them what they should be doing for someone else.

And he of course throws in a predictable comment about Mary for all the women in attendance. That probably got them to cry and wave their arms around.

What nonsense. They already know what Christ has done for them. They would't be there otherwise.

"Blessed" Mary, you don't follow the Bible do you, was the first to say yes to Jesus. She is the first Christian.

If they already knew what Christ had done for them, they wouldn't go anywhere near that worthless clownshow.

Hey, I'll tell anyone that Christ died for their sins, was buried, and resurrected for their justification if they'll trust what was done for them and quit trying to work for something that is a free gift to start with.

Not many show up though.

You mean "I already said the sinners prayer, what else do you expect God?"

"James you lied when you said faith without works is dead."

"Oh yeah Jesus. I can feed the hungry only if I want to. You punched my ticket."

There isn't the first Catholic that actually believes what I posted. Even your boy Mike confirmed it when he ran to James 2. That's SOP for any unsaved person who rejects the finished work of the cross.

Every good Catholic (and for that matter, Church of Christ'er) desperately wants their works added to what Christ did. I suppose that's what people mean when they say that they want to be more "Christ-like" but I never can find an exact list of things (let's call them "works") that will let the flesh add to what happened at that cross.

Even your pope admits that he is doesn't know if he is in fact going to heaven, while I can absolutely state without any doubt that I am going to heaven.

So what are you doing sitting around all day on Topix? Get out there, sell out everything you own, and feed them poor people. You're in the royal priesthood as Hebrews says. And you yourself said that your priests and nuns have "given up everything to serve the Lord, 24/7/365."

Since they and you are both in that royal priesthood, shouldn't you all be of the same mind and of the same body in regards to serving the poor? You aren't like Ananias and Sapphira, and intend to hold a little something back, are you?

So William here you are at the tail end of 2,000 years of Christian history but in these latter days you think you have come across something that will blow everyone away. 2,000 years of theologians, holy men and women and ordinary folks have poured over every word even every letter in Scripture but yet you think you know best above all these billions of Christians and you alone will be making it to heaven mainly because you plan not to lift a finger to help the journey along.

My best advice is to get yourself a copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, start at page 1 and see how centuries upon centuries of people like you and me have struggled to answer the very questions you now face. You may be able to find a free downloadable pdf copy.

I am "helping". I am preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. You just read it earlier and never picked up on it, preferring instead to talk about the Catholic church and it's supposed magnificence.

Looks like my works outweigh yours.

You need the Church to help you understand. The Bible tells us that. It is hard to understand and it is not for private interpretation.

The Bible does not contradict itself if you read in context.

How can I sell everything and give it to the poor if I have a family? Marriage a family is a vocation. But I still give what I can to poor.

1 Timothy 5:8
But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

Matthew

“[But] take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them;a otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father.

How can you stand up and preach what you think is the Truth when the guy in the Church across the street is telling their congregation something completely different? The other guy thinks they are as right as you are.

You can be leading people to eternal damnation based on your personal opinion.

Quotes from Marcus Grodi,a former protestant pastor., who has hosted The Journey Home program on ETWN and many of them are on youtube.

Just a few of the many reasons he realized he was not preaching the truth.

Revelation 14:13
And I heard a voice from heaven saying, "Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord henceforth." "Blessed indeed," says the Spirit, "that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!"

*For years, as a Calvinist preacher, I recited this verse in every funeral graveside service. I believed and taught sola fide and discounting any place for works in the process of our salvation. But then, after my last funeral service as a minister, a family member of the deceased cornered me. He asked, with a tremble in his voice,“What did you mean that Bill’s deeds follow him?” I don’t remember my response, but this was the first time I became aware of what I had been saying. This began a long study on what the New Testament and then the Early Church Fathers taught about the mysterious but necessary synergistic connection between our faith and our works.

* Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

Ever since my adult re-awakening (read “born-again experience”) at age 21, this Proverb has been my “life verse.” It rang true as a guide for all aspects of my life and ministry, but then during my nine years as a Presbyterian minister, I became desperately frustrated by the confusion of Protestantism. I loved Jesus and believed that the Word of God was the one trustworthy, infallible rule of faith. But so did lots of the non-Presbyterian ministers and laymen I knew: Methodists, Baptists, Lutherans, Pentecostals, Congregationalists, etc., etc., etc ... The problem was that we all came up with different conclusions, sometimes radically different, from the same verses. How does one “trust in the Lord with all your heart”? How can you make sure your not “leaning on your own understanding”? We all had different opinions and lists of requirements. A verse I had always trusted suddenly became nebulous, immeasurable, and unreachable.

Go to Amazon and take at look at how many Bible concordances, dictionaries, multi-volume commentaries, books and Bible translations are available today...hundreds upon hundreds...yet you alone have the answer. Even Biblegateway has over 40 English versions of the Bible...yet you alone have the answer.

And as for the "supposed magnificence" of the Catholic Church, the universal Church of Christ, even though I've only seen it in photographs, Michelangelo's Pieta is answer enough to your bashing attempt.

You may have good intentions but you are preaching the Gospel of William. Who gives you the authority? You are not a successor to the apostles.

You want to be the a shepherd instead of a sheep.
