lol. Now that is the funniest thing you ever uttered on here. You honestly think there will be a point when any of you guys say, "gee sola scripture really wasn't taught".
Heck no. You're going to your grave holding on to that false teaching that you consciously know is wrong.
Its called ignorance Ox. And you guys can't exist without it.

So your "its in scripture" is nothing but hot air.....know why?? Because there is no such....

Sorry. You have quoted something from somewhere, I know not....
NABRE
John 1:1
"In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God."....
John 1:14
"And the Word became flesh
and made his dwelling among us,
and we saw his glory,
the glory as of the Father’s only Son,
full of grace and truth."
Thus, the Word was God and became flesh.
There is nothing of Hellenistic Philosophy, except the use of Greek as the language, nor is there any reference to Proverbs.
Word was God....Was in this case "As the definite or prepositive article (to be distinguished from the postpositive article — as it is called when it has the force of a relative pronoun, like the German der, die, das, examples of which use are not found in the N. T.), whose use in the N. T. is explained at length by Winers Grammar,§§ 18-20; Buttmann, 85 (74ff); (Green, p. 5ff). As in all languages the article serves to distinguish things, persons, notions, more exactly, it is prefixed"
and since the word "Was" has no modifer....
"to substantives that have no modifier; and those that designate a person or a thing that is the only one of its kind; the article thus distinguishes the same from all other persons or things...."
In short The Word was God, means the Word was God....
Similarly if we say, The Word is God, it means the Word is God.
It does not mean was becoming, or is becoming....

And...you are not answering my question..

Quote: If Christ be God....why did He say:
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Why did He not know of "that day and hour"????

Oxbow

This is the first time you asked....

But it is obvious. There are about 100 trillion connections in the human brain. When God emptied himself out to become a human, he necessarlily limited himself to the human brain. And so the time and date of everything and events in the universe cannot be held in a human brain.

You are an ex-Catholic and yet, you continue to visit these Catholic threads. For a long time now, I have been reading many of your posts and I have no doubt about your true motives.
You keep coming back in order to:
1- Bash the Church in an attempt to keep others from possibly joining the Church and therefore add to the number of haters of the Church. You do this in order to mitigate the guilt you feel for abandoning the true Church (you do know in your heart that Catholicism is the truth but you have chosen yourself over God).
2- You seek sympathy from other haters such as yourself because you want to be perceived as a victim and the Church as a monster. Of course, you do this in a futile effort to validate your contempt for the Catholic Church.
“I don't care what anyone says”
There you have it. You have decided that you WILL NOT listen to the truth because you are too proud and rebellious.
I can only feel sorry for you. You have chosen the path that leads to destruction.
Like other Roman Catholics here -- all "bashed" by "haters."

I see your problem.

How dare anyone dispute the claim of 'one-true' spiritual superiority? It's crazy -- they ask for historical, real-life evidence beyond 'because we say so.'

Great Catholic post above. It speaks pointedly to that Catholic perfect teaching thing.

You're a bit incorrect. I come here to try to understand how in the world I ever believed in some of the obvious nonsense grown men teach! All I can come up with was I was a kid, my Dad was dying and I was very vulnerable. Needed something to cling to. I WILL listen to truth if I find any here. As for me choosing the path that leads to destruction - are you saying all non-Catholics have chosen that? If you are, you are way out of line. There are many, many pious and good non-Catholics. As I've said countless times before, when I was young I never questioned. Now I surely do! I will state true motives any and every time. I haven't a thing to hide. In fact, I have a few nice memories. Do you honestly believe your church has the "fullness of truth?" It does NOT. I don't think you're a bad person for believing it, I just think your religion is in error in many ways.

More - Do I come here to keep others from joining? Hell, no! I'm a truthseeker and a realist. Believe what you want. Some of the stuff I see posted here makes me realize some folks are just stuck on stupid. THEY are the ones who will not consider TRUTH. When a person refuses to open their mind and consider alternate viewpoints, it's called "brainwashed". They are the ones to feel sorry for.

You and the RCC are horrible, wicked and downright cruel with your gay-bashing. Responsible for countless acts of violence against them. And you feel justified, don't you? You should be ashamed of spreading your hatred/homophobia. Look what it does to people!

Ex-Catholic here.

Imagine! They believe the world media, banking authorities in the USA and EU, greedy lawyers for orphans and deaf children -- are all plotting against them.

We are here trying to destroy the Church.

Harmlessly goofy, but with a creepy side too me thinks.

We just need to accept their spiritual superiority -- as displayed here every day :o)

Look LTM, here's yours and the buffoon Oxbow's problem; you both claim the bible and only the bible is your rule of faith, then you both claim to be led by the Holy Spirit unto all truth when you read it. He says the Holy Spirit guided truth he gets from the bible is that Jesus is NOT God. How can you say he's wrong when it's the "Holy Spirit" telling him this?

"The preaching of ministers should be examined by the Scriptures".
By whom??? Under who's authority? Who determines who has such authority?
"Every preacher should expect his doctrines to be examined in this way, and to be rejected if they are not in accordance with the Word of God".
But according to you people, every person is their own authority to interpret the Bible. Who decides who's interpretation is wrong and who's is right?

Yes, according to the Second Secret of Fatima.

About that many died in World War, all ordered up by Jesus.

"You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pope Pius XI."

Creepy stuff.

I am a follower of Jesus Christ..

Since Benny Hinn is evidently standing between Anthony and God...

That means He is closer to God than Anthony is.

I don't see Benny Hinn attempting to claim a franchise or a monopoly on the Kingdom of God...even though He was raise as a Roman Catholic.

He ministers healing to them as well as the protestants. All that attend his meetings.
