I used Claypool because I'm a huge fan of Bassist Les Claypool from the band Primus. Later I just used Clay. I didn't think I would be on here for two

Michael says (lol) what does that mean? when the bible says something it does!(lol)

Michael says. The bible states many times that Jesus had brothers. It is clearly written for christians to read. The catholic church denies they are brothers of the Lord, that they are actually cousins, other christians claim they are brothers of another mary and even other christians claim Joseph was married before and they were step-sons.

When you tell this multiple answer info. to a non-christian what do you think they say? They say christians can't seem to agree aon anything the bible says.

BUSTED!

lets not forget the talking snake and donkey stories right from the bible.

I just wonder if that talking donkey was one of the farm animals in the nativity scene that all catholics own? Interesting!

inquisition Continued
Modern times
By 1500, the Catholic Church had reached an apparently dominant position as the established religious authority in western and central Europe dominating a faith-landscape in which Judaism, Waldensianism, Hussitism, Lollardry and the finally conquered Muslims al-Andalus (the Muslim-dominated Spain) hardly figured in terms of numbers or influence. When the institutions of the Church felt themselves threatened by what they perceived as the heresy, and then schism of the Protestant Reformation, they reacted. Paul III (Pope from 1534 to 1549) established a system of tribunals, administered by the "Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Universal Inquisition", and staffed by cardinals and other Church officials. This system would later become known as the Roman Inquisition. In 1908 Pope Saint Pius X renamed the organisation: it became the "Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office". This in its turn became the "Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith"[11] in 1965, which name continues to this day.
Functional role
In practice, the Inquisition would not itself pronounce sentence, but handed over convicted heretics to secular authorities for the punishment deemed fitting by the Church.[12] The laws were inclusive of proscriptions against certain religious crimes (heresy, etc.), and the punishments included death by burning, although imprisonment often for life or banishment could be used. Thus the inquisitors generally knew what would be the fate of anyone so remanded, and cannot be considered to have divorced the means of determining guilt from its effects.[13]
Purpose
The 1578 handbook for inquisitors spelled out the purpose of inquisitorial penalties:... quoniam punitio non refertur primo & per se in correctionem & bonum eius qui punitur, sed in bonum publicum ut alij terreantur, & a malis committendis avocentur. Translation from the Latin:... for punishment does not take place primarily and per se for the correction and good of the person punished, but for the public good in order that others may become terrified and weaned away from the evils they would commit.
NOTE
I would not have cut and pasted the above,,,
But
I am sick and tired of the denial of History of the
ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH...BY ROMAN CATHOLICS HERE IN THIS FORUM
AND BEING CALL A LIAR EVERY TIME THE SUBJECT IS BROUGHT UP.
Your "distorted and twisted" anti-catholic sources of TRUE Apostolic Church history are not the "blueprint" for my own or ANY other Catholics personal faith and Salvation in Jesus Christ--in and through His One True Catholic Church. You are "not" a liar Confrinting---only a perverter and a false misrepresenter of the TRUTH of TRUE Church History and a Protestant heretic in falsifying what the Catholic Church "actually" believes and teaches!!

So little of Jesus Christ's life is documented. Even in the Gospels we are only told of moments of His life during the last 3 yrs. I have no idea if He was the captain of His high school soccer team or not.
How did a guy who was seemingly anonymous; put to death; all but 1 of His Apostles were killed too; and most leaders of His early Church were also killed.... Yet, people signed up to replace the fallen Bishops and Priests the next day, knowing they too would be killed. How did people like me come to believe in the Christ 2,000 yrs later?
Answer: The Holy Spirit.
Today is the feast day of St. Andrew Dung-Lac.
He was a Catholic Priest who was beheaded in Vietnam 150 yrs ago, along with 117 other Priests.
These men went to their deaths for spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Every religious belief in the history of mankind had martyrs.

The Muslims that flew the planes into the WTC martyred themselves.

Put your own head on the chopping block if you are that strong a believer? I dare you.

If anyone today in america claimed they were dieing for some religious belief whether setting themselves on fire or some other form of death, I would believe everyone would say......they are crazy.

What say you?

The Inquisition is still going on in the Catholic Church. In fact, almost every Religion has some sort of Inquisition. Including yours.
If a guy stood up in your compound and said "your a fraud, Pentecostals are not speaking in tongues, you suck Confrint!!"
You *might* have a mini trial with other elders of your cult, on what to do with this guy. If he says he's sorry, you might let him stay. Or you could make him pack his bags and leave the compound.

But as far as the Inquisition in the Catholic Church during medieval times? The Church was surrounded by people attempting to overthrow her. War was everywhere (it was medieval time!)

Murders were extremely rare. I read one article where thieves would lie and say they were heretics, just so they could go to a Catholic courtroom and end up in a prison where they were fed good.

Shall we talk about what you people did to innocents during the Salem Witch Trials?

Michael says........Scriptures claim 3 wisemen riding camels from miles away followed a light in the sky and pinpointed a cave bringing gifts of gold, myr and frankencense to the NEW BORN MESSIAH. Could you follow a star and locate a Cave 8 miles away? I don't think so. Just tall tales clay.
Sounds important to me.
King Herod decides he wants no part of this baby Jesus the messiah, so he decides to kill all male infants trying to kill baby Jesus, but at the Nick of Time the family escapes to Egypt.
Nothing in world history records such an event.
Right from the get-go the news was out there......according to christian ONLY writers.

Pad--you continue to rely on your anti-catholic "pot of propaganda" to bail you out of any discussion. That my friend is the "only thing" that is clear to you. You continue to have "no idea" as to what you are talking about, which is "no surprise to ANY of us Catholics who know the TRUTH of Church History. If you have "any knowledge" of apostolic Church History---of which you obviously have "none" you would know that statutes in Churches were icons used in the Churches (before the bible was put into print in 1440 by Guetenberg who invented the printing press. Icons were a part of the worship in the Church as partitioners were given a "visible idea" as to what Jesus or His apostoles looked like...... Catholics "DO NOT" worship idols, never have and never will,despite the ongoing "lies" that are spread by bible only Protestants,(like you) who rely on "Protestant Propaganda" in order to keep their bible only "leaking" boat from sinking!!
if no apostle taught/preached in a church how can you have apostolic church history? name one apostle that preached in a church? not a pope (a pope is not an apostle) but one of the original apostles that traveled with jesus...you talk about true church history how come you never mention how the church got people to believe in it when it started 2000 yrs ago? how people were beaten,tortured,killed if they did not believe,how come you never speak of that TRUE HISTORY??

I hope these wisemen weren't bitten by any of the farm animals at the cave or stable. OH! I forgot there were no farm animals there. The pope has just confirmed that teaching. Disgregard.

Now that the church found out that Jesus was actually born years earlier, does that mean too that the 3 kings had to leave their location 4 years earlier than before?

All the events in christianity now move back 4 years.

All religions have a Spirit guiding them. After all, people are seeking something SPIRITUAL when pursuing God.
So, what kind of Spirit causes Muslims to blow themselves and innocent children up,'in the name of God'? It isn't the Holy Spirit, its is an evil spirit.

Melissa Miller, 41, of Port St. Lucie, was blowing her horn and going 100 mph in a 30-mph zone on U.S. 1 in Fort Pierce at 1 a.m. Tuesday, told officers God told her to do it.

JETHRO:I posted this and no one responded to my question,is she telling the truth? did god speak to her and tell her to do what she claims? is it because everyone here knows god does not speak to people? if he doesn't that blows a lot of bible stories.also the myth of his existence.

Y'know, Kay, I also felt it was a tad snide.
.
(It took him 2000 years to discover that?")
.
Ifit was NOT snide, please feel free to explain what it WAS.
.
You seem to feel you are being attacked unfairly.
.
You could just own up to the fact that it was a bit snide.
.
This is something that always comes up in scripture courses in seminary, that we have to be careful about the scenes we have playing out in our heads, such as the magi bringing their gifts for Jesus as hhe is laying in th emanger.
.
This scene (familiar to all Catholics, as it is the common manger scene) is a mixture of Luke and Matthew, and it is good that we recognize it as such, as the two different infancy narratives have DIFFERENT things to tell us.
.
The pope encourages Catholics to become more famailiar with what the scriptures literally say, and meditate on THAT, and for this, you criticize him.
.
It really makes me wonder.
.
If I am blessed, by God's mercy, to be welcomed into the kingdom of Heaven, and God tells me at that point that I had it all wrong, and that the Baptists had it all right, I will have two choices:
.
A. Disgust that the Baptist faith was the correct one, and that I had it wrong, and feeling anger over that,
.
or
.
B. Joy at having Truth revealed to me.
.
Personally, I would choose B.(I have no fear of being condemned because "my faith got it wrong," because I strive to live what I believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ calls me to, as best I can. I may be judged guilty on how well I lived that ideal, but I fear nothing on whether it was "right" or "wrong.")
.
My impression of many on this forum is that, if blessed to arrive in Heaven were told, "Welcome in. to the comapany of the Blessed, united in the Holy Eucharist, which Catholics so often offered for your salvation, for that has been granted,"
.
you, and many like you would have the options of:
.
A. Disgust, because those damned Catholics were right.(Yuck! Can't we go somewhere else?!),
.
or.
.
B. Joy at the revelation of God's Truth.
.
.... many of you would choose A.
.
And I think that is truly sad.
.
Your hatred of all things Catholic leads you to mock the pope, and be snide, EVEN when he is saying something YOU YOURSELF AGREE WITH.
.
And even sadder is that you cannot see how sad that is.
.
