Thank you Robert. The Inquisitions were started by the Catholic Church to PREVENT chaos and wrongs committed by Catholic majority countries. The Church felt it would be wise to see a fair and easy approach to the matter.
The Spanish Inquisition was the one that receives the spotlight because of the sometime brutal approach by the Spanish Monarchy. It got out of hand, prompting Pope Sixtus to write to the Spanish Monarchy:
"Many true and faithful Christians, on the testimony of enemies, rivals, slaves .... Have without any legitimate truth, been thrust into prison, tortured and condemned, deprived of their goods and handed over to the secular arm to be executed to the peril of souls...setting a pernicious example and disgust to many"
Clay
Peace

I am quite tired of seeing the same throwing of stones, concerning the time of the Inquisitions....There are so many factors, in a society that is foreign to us, and a time when records were not kept(or "lost", that there is little hope of going over and over it again and again with the same people....Apparently the only one really keeping records was the RCC....

It seems to me more likely that the stone-throwers are judging first before the facts, and prefer to build a case against the RCC in order to destroy it:

(Reminds me of the woman caught in adultery, and Jesus said he who is sinless, let him cast the first stone. But in this case they throw stones....)

But the stone throwers, especially to follow the leaders of their movements, with their own interpretation of Jesus Christ, to promote a sort of cohesion within their ranks.

(I view it more like groups of people grumbling and mumbling in the wilderness wanderings of the Jews in the O.T., against Moses and God.)

You are incapable of opening your mind. You never read anything for a balanced view. You close your mind and immediately seek to find anything anti-catholic to spam the thread with.

If I may?
I researched a few years ago on how people lived back in Christ time and what kind of houses they lived in.
The kind of houses they lived in were two stories.
They had the upper room that they lived in.
On the bottom level,they actually kept their best animals there.
Because they were afraid someone would steal them.
Mostly lambs that they used for sacrifice.
So,it is possible that animals could have been in the same room that Jesus was born in.
I tend to think that it was in one of those bottom levels of a home that Jesus was born.
There would have been a manger there.
More than likely,a woman living in the home would be a midwife and was there to help with delivering baby Jesus.
Who knows? It could have been one of Josephs families homes they were staying.
That's just my opinion,going by the research on how people lived back then.
Karen I showed a picture of the cave where He laid in. it was either a natural cave or dug out of the hillside.when the muslims took over they almost destroyed it, however wiser people took over and saved it by placing blocks at the entrance so they couldnt ride their horses in it and destroy it.

The antiquity of the association of the site with the birth of Jesus is attested by the Christian apologist Justin Martyr (c. 100 – 165 AD, who noted in his Dialogue with Trypho that the Holy Family had taken refuge in a cave outside of town:

Joseph took up his quarters in a certain cave near the village; and while they were there Mary brought forth the Christ and placed Him in a manger, and here the Magi who came from Arabia found Him.(chapter LXXVIII).

Origen of Alexandria (185 AD - circa. 254 AD) wrote:

In Bethlehem the cave is pointed out where He was born, and the manger in the cave where He was wrapped in swaddling clothes. And the rumor is in those places, and among foreigners of the Faith, that indeed Jesus was born in this cave who is worshipped and reverenced by the Christians.(Contra Celsum, book I, chapter LI).

Peru might be nice.
Or stay here and hate America. Who knows, the great Vatican dream of destroying this country may still come to pass.
Then there will be statues of great Catholic leaders like Mussolini and Franco on every street corner. Freedom of religion will be destroyed, no more trial by jury, or women's rights, and Sunday Mass will again be mandatory.
I heard a rumor, take note, it is only a rumor,

But I heard tha around teh 25 of December, that a star is going to appear over Washington,

You see Clay you can not deny what the catholic church has done, because their history is still being written. They haven't stopped the killings and torments and rape of the children.
To make it worse your Pope the present one, stated, in some societies, sex with children is tolerated.
Does it make it right "NO" and for a man to rape a child by force
we are talking "SODOMY" here Clay think about it and have your Pope justify it by saying its acceptable in some societies.
God have mercy on his soul.
You sick, demented and foolish woman. The Pope never justied any of what you claim. Apparently it is your Christian duty to lie and slander.

Sorry to late to beat that horse that the Pope didn't know; because he already confessed that he did. He covered it up and let it continue D.S.

Jesus DID say it was necessary, but He also seems to make exceptions, such as the Good Thief.

Rob, have you truely considered the possibility that Jesus 'does not make exceptions' but perhaps there is a flaw in the understanding of what the 'GOSPEL' truely is and what part if any, baptism has in ones salvation. And perhaps there is a misunderstanding of what 'born of water' truely means. Is it possible that it is not in referance to water baptism at all?

You call me demented D.S. are you serious you following the teachings of a denomination that okayed and covered up the torture murder and rape, for eon's that is still going on to this day.
Either the POPES ordered the torture and murders, or he knew about them and covered them up a.\ In any case he is guilty of crimes agaist humanity. The vatican should be dismantled brick by brick,
the name catholic church should be erased from everything associated with God because it is an abomination to HIS HOLY NAME.
It is the Church of Lucifer.
It is the reason so many people have turned away from God; and have painted all Followers of Jesus and associated us with the catholic church.
I am not catholic or protestant not Islamic.
I am a follower of Jesus Christ I follow 'THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE..

I have seen pictures like this before, FOL. I am not sure but I think our Pastor's daughter brought them to our church once along with some of scriptures from the lost sea scrolls.
Or to a prayer meeting can't remember now it was long ago. Its understandable, the manger would be hollowed out of the wall of a cliff as was Jesus's tomb. Its nice to see places where Our Savior walked and talked and lived among people.

you could never converse on my level, I can and could use words that you have never heard of, let alone know what they mean.

in a debate, the person who can make their point and that conclusively is the person who can prove his point beyond reproach.

how many names have people like Orville who has called me a "demon" have you reputed to be accurate?

but with people like him you agree with because I have showed that he isnt what he seems to be , just like you.

Bible Verse Of The Day

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

1 Corinthians 10:13 (KJV)

The Secret of Spiritual Consistency
November 25, 2012
God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ ...—Galatians 6:14

When a person is newly born again, he seems inconsistent due to his unrelated emotions and the state of the external things or circumstances in his life. The apostle Paul had a strong and steady underlying consistency in his life. Consequently, he could let his external life change without internal distress because he was rooted and grounded in God. Most of us are not consistent spiritually because we are more concerned about being consistent externally. In the external expression of things, Paul lived in the basement, while his critics lived on the upper level. And these two levels do not begin to touch each other. But Paul’s consistency was down deep in the fundamentals. The great basis of his consistency was the agony of God in the redemption of the world, namely, the Cross of Christ.

State your beliefs to yourself again. Get back to the foundation of the Cross of Christ, doing away with any belief not based on it. In secular history the Cross is an infinitesimally small thing, but from the biblical perspective it is of more importance than all the empires of the world. If we get away from dwelling on the tragedy of God on the Cross in our preaching, our preaching produces nothing. It will not transmit the energy of God to man; it may be interesting, but it will have no power. However, when we preach the Cross, the energy of God is released.“... it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.... we preach Christ crucified ...”(1 Corinthians 1:21, 23).
Wisdom from Oswald Chambers
To those who have had no agony Jesus says,“I have nothing for you; stand on your own feet, square your own shoulders. I have come for the man who knows he has a bigger handful than he can cope with, who knows there are forces he cannot touch; I will do everything for him if he will let Me. Only let a man grant he needs it, and I will do it for him.”
The Shadow of an Agony
AMEN

Heck, Im used to this stuff going in one ear and out the other with you bigots.
By the way, The Inquisition was established by the Church to PREVENT wrongs committed by catholic mobs in various parts of Europe. It was a fair approach to the chaos of the time.
Clay
Peace

It seems to me, that some have to keep up their view of the Inquisition in order to justify their hatred of Catholicism. It would be a betrayal of the foundations of their church and belief system to objectively look at the facts....Of course they can say the same of the Catholic.

Logic and reason in presenting facts and observations of that time in history are of no effect. The anti-Catholic bigot will not do so, nor change beliefs. And to expect another result would be insane. The bigot will of course only look at prejudiced material, so they will not be aware, nor understand....They act on fear, prejudice, pressumption.

But in a way, getting out the facts and observations may not be fruitless to those whose minds are not informed....
