Soooo...since Jesus was available to make these decisions, men chose themselves - over Jesus - to make the decisions.
Gotcha.
Why do you believe men?
Because their decision making on teachings couldn't have involved their opinion, because we're talking about Jesus Christ as being the actual head of it all - in Spirit.

...and yet, you only believe what men have given you, placing teachings that ae attributed to Jesus into a waste basket.
BTW - Jesus didn't start a church, men did upon what Jesus taught - utilizing all that he taught, not just what the men you believe beleived, but all of his teachings.
Pls remember, it wasn't until 300 yrs and later that men chose on what you are to believe, if you wanted to be a follower.
Please provide a citation to where "God" has stated that any religion, other than Catholicism, is heresy.

I don't. I believe in what Jesus taught.
I'm sorry you don't.
I don't think you understand...

Ok, you believe the Gospel of Thomas and Jude are written by the Apostles.
Why?
For starters, the quotes from Christ sound nothing like the quotes from Christ in the New Testament canon. And there is no trace of those writings being composed by the Apostles.
If your religion (or whatever) was the true one.. Then Christ would have saw that it prevailed. It would have flourished and been taught as truth.

There are no requirements placed on anyone regarding marriage. Any Catholic can be married of they so choose. I am God's servant and I'm married. There is no requirement for me to be a priest in order to serve God in a manner that pleases Him.

I grow up in tiny place which i simple mist.
My emotion which is much more come out with tears and sadness is just Christmas.
Father mother and child is something which your Creator created as alive cell walking trough Earth.
Church is institution but family is day as Christmas
in us Christians make much more sense fill that love as well meaning of life.

Christmas for me is not Commercial holiday as well never make me happy decoration toward drunker day or similar like that.

I never think about Christmas as necessity that i need have build within myself to become depend as materialistic just sense as real meaning of family.

Family is first moral and holy creation.

Systems and deference organization between us humans are organize to become depend on materialistic base.
Economy and finance are materialistic.. toxic mind.
''Desire to have'' control you as well can destroy you.

We have to much things on this planet where we destroying our healthy life meaning as body as well spiritually too.

"Because their decision making on teachings couldn't have involved their opinion"

- does talking in circles make you feel comfortable?

Really Clay? Is this your stance?

Please cite the citation that shows the Jesus was involved "in Spirit".

You do realize that if this is the case, then Jesus has the ability to "be in Spirit" in anyone at anytime, right?

Thus, for all you know, Jesus is telling me to tell you to use ALL of his teachings and not just the ones he told those individuals in 325 CE. He is telling me that they all got it wrong, and he tried and tried to get them to include, not burn or destroy hos other teachings.

Really?

The voice of Catholicism? I think not.

A voice to help give followers an understanding of the people associated to Catholicism? I think so.

*watches as would-be followers now turn around and walk the other direction*

Hey Herm, glad you're back on board.
I'm more intrigued by the Orthodox faith everyday. I think we had yrs of stereotypes separating us. But that's another Topix thread...

Don't mind Bob, he doesn't represent Catholics very well. The act he's got is unnecessary.

Back up for a second..
Can Jesus be 'in Spirit' in anyone at anytime?

Of course He can. He is God.

Is He in Spirit with everyone on this thread?

Yes.. To an extent.

If Jesus is telling you (in spirit) that all other Christians before us got it all wrong, then Jesus Christ is a fraud. He never was God. He never guided the Apostles and their Disciples to truth. He left some hidden puzzle for future New Agers to uncover!
To me, that belongs in a Dan Brown novel...not reality in Jesus Christ and who He is.

Which suggests that anyone can be telling the truth of what they believe to be true.

Which is actually, get this - Self.

Or you can believe in stories from about 1900 years ago that were written by unknown authors,(the earliest manuscripts in human hands are the Codex Vaticanus and Siniaticus, which are only 1500 years old) and by those men who had the first issues scribed.

Or you can believe that the Jesus story is another take on a previous more ancient story of symbolism.

Or you can believe that the Jesus story is like many other cultures and their "redeemed-redeemer".

Or you can be Catholic, and think you are right and everyone else is wrong.

Who really is the one being dishonest about their arrogance?
