Cute.
According to your beliefs David Koresh is in heaven. No? Why not?
so we agree the saints Paul spoke of were folks like you and I so why aren't they on the catholic saint list?

Do you think someone who denies Christ 3 times is a better Christian than say a Christian of today?

This concept of *first* means a lot to you, doesn't it, Clay?

"...Muslims conquered Jerusalem and slaughtered thousands of Catholics."

But YOU seem to forget that Catholics were there *first*- in the Holy Land - murdering and fomenting war throughout the region! So, just who was *first*? Does Constantine ring a bell?

<quoted text>
They were tired of the Catholic Church *first* murdering their people so they fought back.

"This was the final straw for the Church..."

The final straw for the native people of the region - 300 years AFTER Constantine *first* waged war in God's Name - came in the form of Muhammad who created Islam to fight back against the Catholics who had been shedding innocent blood there *first*- for 300 years.

I've posted these links before, but you ignore them; look at the birth dates of these two individuals to see who was born *first*:

No. There is no comparison! The Catholics have been at it 1500 years longer since they were there *first*.

<quoted text>
They fought back against the Catholics who *first* did the slaughtering! It's instinct to fight back against murderers; it is the *first* thing normal victims do.

<quoted text>
They fought back against the religion that had *first* been killing and murdering in God's Holy Name.

<quoted text>
Maybe the priests went missing because they had *first* molested altar boys?
Ok, I didn't ignore your links this time. I read them and I didn't see anything that backs up your baseless opinion that Muslims were retaliating against Catholic violence, before the Crusades.

I didn't see anything about Constantine waging war on behalf of Catholicism either. Did he go to war? Yup. for religion or politics? Politics.
Against Muslims? No.

You're nuts Guest.

Hey Jethro, sorry I was not clear.
I don't think offering opinion backed by links -- all relevant to the board topic is "bashing" anyone.
If the complainers don't want facts and opinion 100% on board topic, they really should not be here. All their talk of "bashing and hatred" is just one more form of denial. For example, if you were to post this link:
http://www.nydailynews.com/news/world/pope-be...
It addresses your statement directly and is 100% on board topic.
But the whiners will cry "hatred."
No problem. The Pope is welcome to forget diplomatic immunity and to allow a full and independent investigation. The whiners will be vindicated and the world will move on.
I am told that will happen when pigs learn to fly.
Oh My and here Peanut aka as ReginaM was concerned about the Baptist just a day or two ago. Looks like she better consult with Pope Benny first on how he is going to deal with his brother before she cast stones at others. Oh My My My !!!!

Peanut let us know what kind of advice he gives will you PLEASE ?

I agree that we don't know, but the precepts you hold says HE IS. So you're not really OSAS are you?

My theology says he's not, unless he was somehow able to make things right with the Lord before the flames got him.

There was another protestant poster here, disciple I think, who changed his mind about OSAS. I hope you consider it.

You have no way of knowing how many, if any, Catholics use this Bible.
It is pope approved...are you saying the pope does not speak for the church?????
It's approved for private use only...it's not approved for the Mass and is not the translation from which the Church teaches.

Do you have something written exclusively by Jesus?

Do you have anything, with him saying - "I am God."

Why do you have to mislead others?

Why don't you beleive Jesus when he stated:

(3) Jesus says:

(1) "If those who lead you say to you:‘Look, the kingdom is in the sky!’
then the birds of the sky will precede you.
(2) If they say to you:‘It is in the sea,’ then the fishes will precede you.
(3) Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and outside of you."
(4) "When you come to know yourselves, then you will be known,
and you will realize that you are the children of the living Father.
(5) But if you do not come to know yourselves, then you exist in poverty, and you are poverty."

You do believe what Jesus said, right?

"Since Wednesday, museums and businesses in the Holy See have been declining credit card and debit card purchases following a decision by the Bank of Italy that is reportedly linked to concerns over inadequate money-laundering controls.
Cash machines have also been shut down after the Italian central bank refused authorization for Deutsche Bank’s Italian unit to continue operating services it provided within the Vatican’s walls."

Actually "folks like you and me" means they were human beings subject to sin and temptation like us. They were not like you and me living the same comfortable and carefree 21st century lives.

When was the last time someone held a gun to your head and told you if you admit to being a Christian he'd pull the trigger? Pretty easy feeling secure in your faith while sitting in your comfy chair with no threat to your life isn't it?

Christianity 101 for Fun Facts:

John 8:58 - Jesus is talking about the Spirit.
"I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!"

Strike one.

Luke 10:18
"He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven."
- nothing to do with Jesus.

Strike two.

Why did you think that these passages had anything to do with Jesus being "God", when they clearly have no bearing at all.

How many catholics on here have posted about being sick or ailing from something! LOTS!
How much faith do catholics really have in their own system? They all know about Lourdes/Fatima that if you suffer from some ailment all you have to do is show up dip the withered limb in the fast flowing water stream and you will be healed. Don't forget to throw your cane on top of the HUGE pile of canes already there.
I don't see a mass exodus everyday at airports with sick ailing catholics, with signs to Lourdes/Fatima saying "ALL FLIGHTS ARE BOOKED SOLID"
SEATS ARE AVAILABLE! first class and coach!
Can you name those Catholics that have being sick or ailing of something? You said 'Lots' so it won't be that difficult to name them.

I’ve been to Fatima and there were plenty of people there!

May 2, 2012 -“an average of 5 million visit Fatima yearly.”

No, not to many….LOL!

Yes, where you stated, "I think it is Church's teaching".

If it isn't, they why make an opinion that it is.

You Catholics seem to be riding the RCC wave on the seat of your pants. Do you always "think" the RCC is teaching something that they don't?

It is obvious with "Jesus being God" - which is false also.

Why don't you believe Jesus?

More importantly, why do you believe men?

What kind of proof do you need?

Or are you going to use my point, against me, but not taking it to fact with yourself?

Do you see how clueless you are?

Do you see how dishonest you are becoming?

Why do you believe in false doctrines when they have been proven by their own words that they are untrue?
