If God revelaed God as three distinct persons, then it is easily possible....All things are possible with God.
If one of the three distinct persons of God became a man, then a man may pray to God, and God may reveal His Will to the man.
No ifs about it...the Son of God, the second person in the Holy Trinity, came into this world as Jesus Christ. Lived about thirty years, was crucified, died, was buried, and rose again on the third day. Is now seated at the right hand of God...

He was, as the Bible says the Lamb of God: The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

The about Scripture says, emphatically, that Jesus is not God...

In the video
Notice that the day of observance is Sunday.
The Eucharist is the real presence of Jesus Christ and not a symbol.
You see that the Catholic Mass in 155 AD is the same Catholic Mass that we have 1,900 yrs later.
Where did Justin learn this from?
Well, we know Paul preached to hold steadfast to your traditions(2thess 2:15)and instituted the Mass(1cor 11:23-25).
Paul is also clear that whomever partakes in the Eucharist unworthily will be guilty of profaning the actual body and blood of Our Lord.(1cor 11:27)
Justin Martyr likely learned from someone who walked personally with the Apostle Paul and was ordained a Bishop by him.
Very nice video, Clay, thanks!

Here are some excerpts from St. Justin Martyr's First Apology, 155-157 B.C.

I'm not an authority on Catholicism. Even so, if I state something I 'think'( but its outside of Church teaching ) its ok because I'm not serving in a teaching capacity but rather, I'm on a debate forum. Of course, I have a hunch I'm correct in the teaching, otherwise I wouldn't bother stating my opinion on it.
I wouldn't say Catholics 'fly the RCC wave by the seat of our pants'. Rather, I would say we have true faith in Jesus Christ and the Church He started.
You conspiracy 'Christians' have no true faith in Christ. You seem to think He was lying when He said, "I will be with you always until the end of the world".
You think He meant, "I will be with you sort of... but you won't really know my true will until a Bible can be printed and handed out to the regular folks, then you'll figure out on your own what I want"
Even more bizarre.. "some gnostics will come along and use part of this Bible, and add some other weird books and say its me talking....But don't worry, because THEY will have the correct faith, so listen to them"
heehee

Of course, uh-huh - Catholics always add qualifiers....and never an honest statement about the truth that men have given you what you believe.

"I'm not an authority on Catholicism. Even so, if I state something I 'think'( but its outside of Church teaching ) its ok because I'm not serving in a teaching capacity but rather, I'm on a debate forum."

What you state is an expression of "Self". Which is not in any religion, but exists.

"to know yourself is to know the kingdom of God".

Nowhere does it say, to know a certain religion is to know the kingdom of "God", now does it?

*sighs*

Jesus is probably saddened too.

Wrong again. You don't accept ALL of what Jesus taught.

You have little faith in Jesus.

Why do you think you are not lying?

No conspiracy at all. I'm trying to spread the word of Jesus, and you refuse to accept it.

Don't put any onus on me with lies and distortions.

I don't think he was lying at all.....especially if he is Spirit, and I become Spirit when I die.
- "I will be with you always until the end of the world".
+ even when the world ends - he and I (and everyone else) is still Spirit.

Have you ever felt (the flow of the excitement in your body) "astonishment" before?

You actually begin to see "the kingdom of God's" in probably the right way.

The Scripture says...plain as day "Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh."
However,we both know that they are not, literally, one flesh. You cannot face this truth, because, to do so, you would have to admit the same logic applies to "I and my Father are one".
I showed you the teaching on this matter by the Catholics....they teach Christ is the Incarnate Son of God....not God. I showed you that the pope approved NABRE, on Joh 10:30, does not teach that Christ is God. Several Scripture that shows God saying that Christ is His Son...etc etc...
Oxbow

The Bible is not a book on logic, based on logic. And to jump from one scripture and then to another and presume you can do so, applying logic, is an intellectual pride.

The Bible has literal, figurative, and spiritual in natures with some overlapping....

No one can define God.

It is not a sin to try and understand God, rather to presume you can by logic.

Actually, I don't think its funny at all. Ellen white (inventor of the SDA idea) told you the Roman Catholic Church decided on Sunday in the year 362 at the command of Constantine.
Well, not so. Christians observed Sunday hundreds of yrs before that, for good reason too. Its what the Apostles taught.

Now you know what I am thinking? Hmmm....you sure need to wrassle in your arrogance, Clay. You have no idea what I am thinking.

Unless you are psychic, then you aren't a Catholic. You've shown you aren't, so that dangling thread is cut.

Do they teach you to be arrogant in mass nowadays, or is this your Self taking the reigns?

Funny thing is, you'll probably divert from that question too, with some off-topic rant about me, AND NEVER tackling the truth head-on.

When you want to address my post, I will respond:
Mt 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Does that mean that a man and woman whom God has joined together are the same person????!!!!! Is that person the man...or is that person the woman???!!!!
Spirit.

It fits all of Jesus' parable.
