If God through Grace gave us the gift of salvation, and He inspired man to write the Holy Spirits, It only stands to reason that God wanted His children to understand His written word.
That teaches us the word's of salvation through His son Jesus Christ.
To walk around ignorant of Gods Holy Word is not only neglectful on the part of many christians it is right down laziness, and sinful.
Your church fathers lied to you when they told you , you can't understand God's word because God says you can, He also said he would teach us.
If God can inspire mere men to write it God can inspire mere men to read and understand His word.
Without God man can do nothing, with God all things are possible.

Your soul (the 'person' that sets you apart from others) is the most precious thing you own. Jesus says that a man's soul is worth more than the whole world; if you owned the whole world, you could not afford to purchase your soul. That is why He alone can do that, and that is why nothing in this world is worth dying for.

So you are now changing it up, to say...."the soul is the most precious"....."is worth more than the world."

Trash the Bible....it isn't needed anymore, once you have come to conclude this.

This is the confusion that Christainity conveys to its followers.

Why does "God" require man to get "His" word to each person?

Why did "God" only appoint Middle Eastern people to promote "His" word, when during this time, the Americas and those people, had other beliefs going on at the same time, with very similar characteristics in their "saviors" [Quetzalcoatl]?

"If God can inspire mere men to write it God can inspire mere men to read and understand His word."
- so you don't limit "God's inspiration" to just a handful of men - or do you?

"Without God man can do nothing, with God all things are possible."
- Wrong again, unless you live under a rock and know nothing of the world today.
- Men have done plenty without "God".....namely travelling to other planets, computer technology, and lots of other things. I even think baseball and football was created by men, without the help of "God".

Are you really this secluded from society - or do you just put on this act for others?

Does it take sole credit for all the idols as well? The holy 10 say thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images. Have they been wholly ignorant of that one commandment? If so ... God says He winks at their ignorance, so repent and bring down those graven images.

The catholic churches records have been miffed since the first catholic quit going to church centuries ago, and every catholic divorced does not go back to the church married in to have the priest rub out his name on the record book.
You can't reverse or disolve a sacrament.
The latest american statistics indicate less than 25% of Roman catholics attend mandatory sunday mass.
Imagine a huge corporation and only 25% of the employees go to work when required? You would be out of business in a hurry.
One only has to look to western europe to have their eyes opened up of catholics bailing out of their church.
The bleeding is profuse.
A belief in the absurd requires validation by others, the more the better.

Thus, the Vatican inflates the numbers and believers such as hojo embrace those numbers without question.

But when you give links that dispute those numbers, ESPECIALLY credible RCC links, then hojo sees that as an attack on the validity of his faith.

Point being -- truth and reality are not welcome by some who look to the spiritual realm for comfort. Truth and reality kick away their crutch.

For those who need constant validation, maybe becoming a eunuch would do the trick.

Why did "God" allow Led Zeppelin to write "Stairway To Heaven", when knowing that when the song is played backwards, it seems to promote Satan and otehr evil ways?

Did "God" miss this one, and for the past 30 years, just decided to let it go and not try to stop it from occuring?

Why don't you think "God" is not creditted for this song either?

Your logic is skewed. You lack knowledge to differentiate what exactly what "God" can or cannot do.

2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

2Co 5:18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

2Co 5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

2Co 5:20 ==> Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. <===

Wow.

Are you now saying you*do* worship the Bible?
.
I was just poking fun.
.
The last time a Catholic (think it was Clay) asserted that we (Catholics) do not worship saints, "you" (was it Kay Marie?) posted "Yes, you do. You say you don't, but you do."
.
I thought that was completely outrageous.

Then I saw you deny that you worship the Bible, and I figured the same reasoning must apply. No?

The Bible is the single-most valuable item a man can own. Call that worship if you will. Yes, I said, "you say you don't, but you do" simply because that is the way that you present saints, crucifix's, Pope's and other Catholic items. CC's infer that we are un-Christian because we respect the Bible...thus declaring their dis-respect of it.
You think that is outrageous?

good friend

I want to remind you that the Mass which is said everyday, about 1/2 of it is devoted the Word. And that the entire Mass is based on scripture. And the CC encourages all to read the Bible.

A Catholic does not disrespect the Bible, or a Bible reading person. Rather the opposite is true....

It becomes a problem when the Bible is made equal to being God, and taking pride in one's knowledge of the Bible. It is a sin of presumption, and breaking the 1st Commandment(O.T.).

You are mixing what the Church teaches vs. the fact that there is sin in the Church. Admittedly there were/are a lot of bad players in the CC. It reminds me of Jesus telling the Jews to listen to what the pharisees teach, but don't necessarily follow the bad one's example.
I believe the Catholic Church teaches perfection because she teaches what the perfect teacher teaches. The prefect teacher said there no perfect people.
Same old spin.

Bottom line... Jesus did not suffer and die, only to have his deed cheapened by disgraceful acts by His sole appointed authority on earth. That would be foolish and arbitrary.

That also CLEARLY demonstrates a lack of divine guidance.

I do not think the highest power in the universe is foolish and arbitrary.

You do.

So which of us has more respect for the highest power in the universe?

God is in the process of perfecting man AND destroying evil. He COULD destroy all evil with just a word. But 'there is none good'; there is some evil in everything/man. If He instantly destroys evil, it would leave no man standing. Besides...we are tested through such evils as you mention. Will we feed on His Word, and be perfected, or will we feed on evil...showing that we are unworthy of Him?

Why don't YOU believe Jesus???

where is it written in the Bible..
Book chapter nd verse please.
Where does it say "in the bible" that every word, every phrase, every sentence MUST BE IN THE BIBLE, in order for it to be true.
Book, chapter and verse please!!
Where does it say "in the bible" that God chose to transmit His divine infallible word ONLY IN THE BIBLE! Book, chapter and verse please!!!

You said the GOP used to get vast majorities of the Cuban vote, but not recently. What was so extreme and disrespectful about Romney's campaign? I can only guess that it was his hard line on immigration. So if you consider GW Bush's large percentage of the Cuban vote and the fact that he was softer on the illegals, one can really only come to one of two conclusions; Either the GOP lost because of Romney's immigration stance, in which case they better change it if they want to win nationally, or, the Latino's voted for Obama because he's a minority, like them. With a very similar skin color, BTW.
As I said, you will never get beyond your simplistic 'skin color' thing, no matter what I say.

I guess in your mind, that explains the Asian-American vote too.

Deep.

Funny you bring up GWB. Leading up to the election, I didn't hear his name mentioned once by any Republican. That didn't occur to me until now.

Backward reasoning. One's Word is who/what one IS. The worst thing one can do to you is to reject your word when you are telling the truth. God says NOTHING but Truth...and to reject that, is to reject Him.

Few are proud of their Biblical knowledge. Generally the opposite is true. FEW people read/know it as they should.'Taking pride' in one's knowledge is sinful...but NOT KNOWING the Word is worse. "Study to show yourself approved UNTO GOD, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightfully dividing the word of truth." II Tim. 2:15

I've even known some dummies who said they would not read the Bible, so that they would not be held accountable for what they knew. "He that knows to do good, and does not do it, to him it is SIN."
