BlackSheep,I have in the passed been very clear in my opinion of the RCC Doctrine.
I do believe there is a realm of God's true church in every denomination. People who truly love the Lord, and because of scandles of sex abuse are painted with the same brush.
The Shame for the sex abuse in the Catholic Church , starts at the very top the vatican and the many Popes.
The priests and Nuns who abused and the Popes who covered up the abuse, is mind blowing to say the least.
My heart goes out to the [Many Nuns and Priets who really wanted to serve the Lord and were really called to do so.
At harvest time the sheep and the goats will be seperated.
Are you aware LTM, that the abuse scandal was horribly exaggerated by your side in an attempt to smear the Church and paint it as evil?
You got suckered into it cuz you're also a bigot and want to believe thing that discredit the Church.

Your own family has as many pedophiles as the Church. Whatever church you attend on Sundays, has as many - if not more.

This is why many on here call you (and others) liars. Because you ignore these basic statistics and pretend the child sexual abuse is a catholic thing.
It tells us you are not at all interested in truth.
That, and along with your constant anti catholic pamphlets you post, tells us you have another agenda and it does not have anything to do with Jesus Christ, because it involves deception.

Always trying to dodge the responsibility and blame. "Our holy, god selected, beautiful church is only as evil as you nasty, godless family." What a stupid thing to say.

As I said before, my family did not and has not covered up for a bad uncle. It has been proven that many in the rcc knew what was going on and tried to hide it.

Clay I agree sex abuse is not only in the catholic church.
The sex scandle however was started by catholic's themselves who were abused.
Decades of abuse by the Catholic brothers and sisters were reported but were sweep under the carpet and covered up by the catholic church.
People are just now starting to listen, and bring to account the many priest and sisters who have abused children in their care.
I do believe as I have stated because, what has happened inside the catholic religion has nothing to do with God its about power and greed.
My problem IS with THE Popes in the catholic church who stand up on a platform and point fingers at people who are not living up to what the catholic church has ordained they should, and allow (YES ALLOWED AND COVERED UP AND LIED ABOUT) the scandless behavior with in their own rakes.
THEN HAVE THE NERVE TO CLAIM THEY ARE THE ONLY TRUE CHURCH OF CHRIST, THERE ISN'T ANY DENOMINATION IN THE WORLD CAN MAKE THAT CLAIM.
BUT ONE THING I DO KNOW CLAY GODS TRUE CHURCH SITS IN EVERYONE OF THEM.
NOW TO BE FAIR, CHILD ABUSE IS WORLD WIDE I AM SORRY TO SAY, ITS EVERY WHERE, CHILDREN ARE MORE THEN LIKELY TO BE ABUSED BY A FAMILY MEMEBER THEN A STRANGER.
THAT FOOTBALL COACH, WHO WAS ABUSING YOUNG PLAYERS, AND HE WAS SEEN DOING IT AND THAT FELLOW COVERED IT UP ALSO.
MY OWN HOME LIFE WAS LIKE THAT CLAY ITS TRUE AND MY DAD WAS A PREACHER, I TRUST VERY FEW PEOPLE CLAY TO THIS DAY.
JESUS CAME TO SAVE THE WORLD CLAY, JESUS DIED FOR THE SINS.
OF THIS WORLD. JESUS HANDS ARE TIED IF A PERSON DOES NOT CONFESS THEIR SINS. THE LEADERS OF YOUR CHURCH HAVE BEEN CAUGHT, LYING AND COVERING UP THE CRIMES AGAINST THE INNOCENT CHILDREN (CATHOLIC CHILDREN) I SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE ABUSE, AND YOU FINED FAULT WITH ME, AND PROTECT THE ABUSERS.

Because Of Love

December 9, 2012— byAnne Cetas

Our Daily Bread Radio is hosted by Les Lamborn

Read: Luke 2:1-7

[Mary] brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger.—Luke 2:7

Bible in a Year:
1 Timothy 1-3

I received some nice Christmas gifts last year—ski pants, a bracelet, and a Kindle reader. But what I enjoyed the most were the gifts of time with people: playing with nine grandnephews and grandnieces from out of state; having a niece and her husband and their 18-month-old daughter attend our church’s Christmas Eve service with us; visiting with a retired co-worker and his wife who are suffering with some health issues; celebrating the season with long-time friends; reading the Christmas story with loved ones. These were all special gifts because of the love we share.

God the Father, because of love, sent a gift to this world 2,000 years ago. Jesus was wrapped in swaddling cloths and laid in a manger (Luke 2:7). The shepherds knew He was an amazing gift because an angel announced His birth to them in the middle of the night while they were in their fields (vv.8-14). They rushed to see Him and then couldn’t help but share the news of this Gift with others (vv.16-17). Yet many later rejected Him, and He was crucified for our sins and buried. But He rose from the tomb and now offers salvation to all who receive Him.

Thank You, God, for the Gift You gave—because of love.
Because of love God sent His SonFrom heaven’s throne to earthTo rescue us from sin and death—A Gift of priceless worth!—Sper
God’s gift to the world is the life-giving Savior

They had the Book of Tobit inside their Bible.
You're telling me that - although the Jews considered the Bible the pinnacle object; most Holy book on Earth; whatever is in the pages of the Book is considered the Word of God- yet Tobit was only mixed in with it somehow? Not part of their Cannon.
Also, do you realize different Jewish communities had different Canons.
The early Christians also had their own Canon.
And Luther removed some of those books at the expense of his soul.
We are talking about the 'Dead Sea Scrolls'. They did not find a 'bible'. You really need to try to learn something of the subject if you wish to try to defend a particular view.

Planned Deception Or Ignorant Deception
In the Garden of Eden Satan deceived Eve with cunning ingenuity. "Gen 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:" Then with elusiveness Eve deceived her own beloved husband without knowing what she was doing. "Gen 3:6 ---, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat." Even today, Satan deceives his followers and they in turn deceive other people. Same as Eve deceived Adam; most of these people deceive their own loved ones without knowing what they are doing.

Satan told Eve that they will not die. He also said that they will become like God if they disobey him. Even now the false preachers are doing the same thing. They are preaching to the people that they are saved from hell (meaning that they will not be punished, or they will not die a spiritual death), while they continue to live in sin (disobedience to God).

They misinterpret the meaning of grace as a special privilege which is given to those who claim the name of Jesus Christ for their salvation. But the grace of God is given to the obedient believers in order to overcome sin. Grace is the power of Lord Jesus Christ that rest upon a believer in order to strengthen him/her at the weak point of the believer. "2 Cor 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." But the grace of God is neither a license to continue in sin nor a guarantee of admission to heaven.

They are false workers come under the pretence of good godly workers. "2 Cor 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." Some of them are possessed by Satan. They purposely twist the Word of God and lie to the people as Satan lied to Eve. Some of them are like Eve, without knowing they serve the cause of Satan. God says that their end will be destruction.

They do not know "the Salvation according to the Bible." They preach false deceptive salvation. "2 Pet 2:18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. 19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage."

Sorry I didn't get the author's name.

Herme, I didn't read Orvilles comment to Preston that is why I didn't comment on it.
In all honesty Herme alot of nasty stuff has been said by all of us, myself included to others on here.
He has been perscuting Orville, and confrintig and his wife, about things that happen eons ago, dragging up trash from the past, and posting their personal life on this board.
Sooner or later people will strike back and if Orville said that, it wasn't right but hey Preston has reaped the fruits of his labour.
He has spread nothing but Malice, and strife on here, about everyone, he can't help himself.
My post today wasn't direct at him personally, but he took it personal why Herme??
What come off our tongue, is what is buried in our hearts,
James 3 warns us to tame our tongues, I wonder how many men and woman have taken a tongue lashing from Preston, and made to feel less then a worm.
I see no love, or forgiveness in Preston which are the gifts of the Holy Spirit Herme, yet he claims he is anointed to preach Gods word, yet he bears no good fruit.
WHICH IS LOVE, FORGIVENESS, JOY , PEACE.
Yet he try's to recruits others to agree with him in his quest to spread strife, and malices, and discord, even with those he has spoke against before he started on me.
He started on me because I happen to agree with a post someone he didn't like wrote.
Someone he was at odds with, and now is friends with probably.
Who knows.
Just because we don't comment on something that someone has said doesn't mean we argee with what ones says.
Every day is a new day Herme another chance to start over.
To be grateful for God's Grace and Mercy, to wake up and remember everything bad thing from the day before is just to much for one person to hold in their mind, but to remember it from years ago wow . Makes a person ill after awhile Herme.
LTM, You are right about all of us posting things here that go against what we are supposed to be.I know I have done this.Try to get back to posting what you usually do about the Word and Christ.I for one appreciate those posts.

I visited several sites from where you stole your materiel. I say stole because you, like so many others 'christians' didn't give credit to the authors you take from.
I noticed that a lot of them started out with something like: " The commands were given by Moses", purposely leaving out, "And God spake all these words, saying,"Now these are the judgments which thou shalt set before them."
moses did not make up these laws, your god did and god never rescinded them. jesus told you not to remove on jot or tittle from the law.
Side note: I noticed that you like to yell, too. There is no need to yell.
I truly do not understand you. I went through all that for you. I wanted to answer what you asked. Yelling? I klnow I used headings in caps.Sometimes my caps stick. If I was angry with you I would have not gone through that trouble.I really did take the time for you and do not understand why you come back with attacks. I will know not to do that for you next time. thought you were sincere.Also I do not need to steal. I have written many academic papers when I have used the format for citing resource material. I did not know this site was so academic.Aslso I usually paraphrase and rewrite what I find. It seems to me you do not have a sincere heart. Thats ok. I have learned from my experience.
It is very clear what Christ said.He said it in His own words and I quoted Him. If you dismiss Peter, Paul, or anyone else as legitimate carriers of Christ's message then that is another issue altogether.You are hardly a student of Mosaic law or hristian theology.I thought that I gave you a very thorough exposition of both.I will not be mean spirited in return.I wil continue to study and learn.

Why do you quote paul? Didn't god and jesus give proper advice?
This is quite a intriguing way to make an argument.A teacher (Christ)teaches his immediate followers with the explicit purpose of carrying His teachings into the world.He commissions tham. At the time of His ascension no less. His disciples accept Paul. But the disciples and Paul say things which contradict ones argument. Therefore go to a last resort. Does the Bible say that Christ said it out of His own mouth?hich is really an argument that they wrote down in the Bible eveything that Christ ever said.
And an argument against what the Bible says whuich is that Christ commissioned them to carry what he taught into the world.Now we are far from logic and analytical thinking which is supposed to be the atheist's strength.

I think you're wrong. You should try putting down the propaganda pamphlets and picking up some actual historical records.

I will agree, they didn't find a Bible like the one you have sitting on your end table.(duh)

Parts of the Books of Tobit and Sirach were found amongst the other Old Testament writings found in the cave.

Listen, as Im sure you know, there was no official Jewish canon until 100 AD. And that was only done so in response to the growing Christian influence. The official Jewish Canon did not include the 7 books we have - because the Jews were looking to distance themselves from Christians. Its safe to say the Apostles considered the 7 books inspired as did some Jewish communities in the time of Jesus. As proof in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Luther also wanted to distance himself from the Church. He succeeded in removing books from the Bible because he lied. People bought into his opinion that the Jews didn't have those 7 books in their canon. Of course, we know there was no Jewish canon until 70 yrs after Jesus died. Oops.

One thing for certain 4gvn. Nothing presented to you will ever change your mind. You will not admit any error in your theology.

If we say the Jews around the time of Jesus had no official canon, you will simply plug your ears and believe they did. Your faith is formed by complete ignorance.
Ignorance doesn't wash your hands my friend.

Luther had no authority to dictate what was inspired and what was not. Your KJV is not the whole Bible as Christians should have - thanks to the wicked priest.

Did the Catholic Church add books to the Bible?

YES THEY DID.

They added 27 books to the Bible in the 4th century.

You accept the Church's authority to establish a Bible, but you later change the meaning of the Books and added titles and concepts that did not exist.

Your religion is so simple...you're shown evidence and you simply ignore it.
"no problem, Im going to Heaven no matter what"

Don't be so confident. Your sola fide is quite new. Its foreign to all known Christians prior to this man Luther. If that ain't alarming to you then nothing will be alarming.

Again, don't accuse me of trying to dodge responsibility and blame. Im just pointing out the hypocrisy of the bigots.
They sensationalize this topic for personal gain. Then when we Catholics show them independent statistics showing this evil is actually LESS in our Church than any other institution, they accuse us of deflecting responsibility. THIS after we already stated to hang the guilty and imprison the ones who helped cover it up. Amazing but expected when considering who we're dealing with....Ignorant Bigots.

Nope, not at all. There is no evidence of a god, so why would I believe in one? You, as in all belivers, try convince the world that there is at least one. I use the bible to prove that man created the religion.
You like Paul because Paul tells you that you do not have to follow god.
Why would a god majesty up laws for a small group of People? Laws that he knows they cannot follow. Then changet the laws for that same small group that he knows they cannot follow.. Then change the laws again for the rest of the world?
My role here is to show the world these flaws.
Think of it like this. Some supreme being makes some impossible laws for Buford, Wyoming, the rest of the country has no clue what is going on in Buford, Wyoming, therefore they cannot follow the laws and must be sent to hell. This supreme being decides to send someone to radically change his laws. What are the chances for belief? For thousands of years, these people were told to follow these laws and now a stranger is going to tell them something different? Still the rest of the country hasn't a chance, they haven't be given the laws again.
Does that make any sense to you? It shouldn't.
Then another guy comes along and changes all the laws again! The time the rest of the country is invited, but they are not given the son or the miracles, only the words of People they have been fighting with for thousands of years.
It is pretty silly, once you take a step back and examin would you have been taught to believe!
TBS

At last....

You write,"There is no evidence of a god, so why would I believe in one? You, as in all belivers, try convince the world that there is at least one. I use the bible to prove that man created the religion."

Answer: Because you deny the evidence, you deny God.
Belief in one God, is against the way human beings rule on this earth. Human rule is religion. Belief in One God, is Truth. So in part you are correct, the Bible proves man created religion, and the laws that arise out of them....

You write, "My role here is to show the world these flaws."

Answer: Sounds like a Napoleonic Complex....Your "logic" and reasoning skills are very simple( Originally, I tried to use logic, then philosophy with you, and you could only accuse me of redirecting issues, and IMHO you will do in the future with anyone. This proved to me the futility of writing on an educated level with you.), lack of knowledge of the Bible is shallow(You take out scriptures and use them as you see fit. Everyone sees it. But the argument goes away when you quote the Bible in the first place, as an Authority greater than your own....), and your understanding limited(Here I tried to communicate with you concerning faith. But your denial to enter in a discussion, merely displays the shakiness of your faith in a no-god system, view of the Universe, or whatever you believe....) In other words, "Stop trying to be like God, and tell people how to think. You obviously don't have the skills. And you are not Moses....

Finally I would commend you for having us self-examine our beliefs, it lends to our better understanding. You might try a bit of it on yourself....
