has recorded it over and over and over again for over 2000 years. Your "continuous distorted "anti-catholic (bogus and superficial" history books, have not, will not or can EVER change the TRUTH, of Jesus Christ and His (conclusively factual)One True Apostolic Catholic Church.
PROVEN, VERIFIABLE, AUTHENTICATED and GENUINELY TRUE Church History
JETHRO:your right in saying it is your churches history,but that's as far as it goes,you have not shown any proof that jesus, a non-catholic,converted to catholocism, and called his church, the catholic church.where is this history? "Pope Benedict IX (c. 1012 – 1065/85)thanks to the political prowess of his father, who had managed to get the papacy reserved ahead of time for his son.".......you call this devine apostolic succession?? the chair is bought for him and that makes him the vicar of christ on earth? sure it does.

how do you figure that? jesus was not catholic,he never was in rome,and if it doesn't say it,it ain't so.hearsay B.S. is all that it is.it was rome that wanted him crucified,so i doubt he would build his church there,which again would not be a building,it would be spiritual in nature.it suppose to be a universal church,do you see a catholic church on mars?:) lol. couldn't resist.

As usual, New Age, you "continue" to have "no idea as to what you are talking about, which is (nothing new) to any of us Catholics...... Again--why don't you listen to, follow and believe the words of Jesus Christ HIMSELF (in the Gospels). Catholics always have, for over 2000 years, and always will!!!!!
Ah yes - the "RED LETTERS"....why didn't I think of that?

You don't understadn what I post, because you are Catholic. Correct. Your limited knowledge and limited acceptance of what Jesus has taught, has caused this.

Clueless.

LOL yes it would be very interesting if the Pope came on this thread. I think there would be a long line of all the people who want to hit the Pope Jethro.

Michael says......You might believe he said that, but you can't verify with any certainty that he did.
You can't verify the names associated with the gosples were the actual people who wrote them. Can you? That is just your leap of faith and belief, but doesn't make it true unless you can prove it.
Every belief outside of yours says different things. No one has yet shown to have the smoking gun of what the real truth is, maybe its yours and maybe its not.
Explaining the "red" letters to hojo is like explaining how a pitchfork works to a half-wit.....your efforts will be never end.

Your reply taken out of text again. This as a reply to LTM, so upset by the hatred on this thread.
You No AGE Spritual leader is no leader. You may be a manager since you don't seem to do anything for your self but request others do your dirty work for you.
You ask the Pope, You do the twitter. Stop pushing others to do you dirty work. And stop taking stuff out of context to suite your thinking. This is not right. Your probably one of them that pick and choose things out of bible to suite your thinking.
Simple game, just Trust in God...
Oh hi CG - I can see your "Catholic" dismay is festering so much, you just had to voice your frustration at me.

Not a problem, I'm here for you.

I can completely understand your frustations. Shoot, when I found I that the RCC was only teaching a portion of Jesus' teachings, I was like you....dismayed.

I fought the dismay with astonishment, and lo and behold - all of Jesus teachings have brough about a great change in me.

Hissing and huffing about me is off-topic. But hey, you can't see it this way. I know. It's tough to speak ill about the RCC, all knowing that it brings you comfort, but lying to yourself and others about it, is not what Jesus would want.

Skip the Pope - he'll never show up, so no worries anymore, k?

Thanks for responding.

You fundies make me laugh. So according to you, God gave a church for say 300 years. Then it was corrupted. Then confusion reigned for say 1300 more years. Until the protestants turned up with the one true doctrine.

Are you stupid or something? What a moron.

Or put it this way. Homo sapiens is around in its current for 100k years? So you have no guidance from God for 98,000 years. Followed by 300 years of the early church. Followed by 1300 years of the false RCC. Then enlightened protestantism. Does that make any sense to you? Why wouldnt God, a rational being, want to give people clear guidance. Please answer me this.

so he did appear and sat down but you never addressed the important part of my post which was "God told me that it was Jesus" and He told me that on the first time that I stepped into a pulpit to preach my first message.

teh important thing is this. your church and YOU are liars by saying that Michael an archangel, one of seven, Raephel being another along with gabriel, was Jesus Christ.

angels are [created beings], they can not create life as we know it, nor can they destroy it without permission of God. in the beginning the Lord spoke these words, "let us make man in our own image', He was not speaking to an archangel, but to Jesus, His Son.

Michael could not speak against the devil, and until God gives him the power, he on his own is powerlesss to stop satan.Yet Jesus speking of Himself, "said all Power is given unto me".

the bottom line is this. you belong to a satanic cult and you have been uncovered for all to see. and your hatred of me has done this to you.lol

Appearances of the "angel of the Lord" are often presented as theophanies:[2] in Genesis 31:11–13 the angel of God says, "I am the God of Beth-el"; in Exodus 3:2–6 the angel of the Lord who appeared to Moses in the flame of fire says, "I am the God of thy father"; compare Genesis 22:11; Judges 6:11–22. At times the angel of the Lord speaks in such a way as to assume authority over previous promises (see Gen. 16:11 and 21:17).

The following are examples of use of the term "angel of the Lord":
Genesis 16:7–14. The angel of the Lord appears to Hagar. The angel speaks as God in the first person, and in verse 13 Hagar identifies the visitor as a god.
Genesis 22:11–15. The angel of the Lord appears to Abraham and refers to God in the first person.
Exodus 3:2–4. The angel of the Lord appears to Moses in a flame in verse 2, and God speaks to Moses from the flame in verse 4.
Numbers 22:22–38. The angel of the Lord meets the prophet Balaam on the road. In verse 38, Balaam identifies the angel who spoke to him as delivering the word of God.
Judges 2:1–3. The angel of the Lord appears to Israel.
Judges 6:11–23. The angel of the Lord appears to Gideon, and in verse 22 Gideon fears for his life because he was in the presence of God.

Your version lacks historic fact, logic and faith- in Jesus Christ.
Conspiracy Christianity is un biblical. I gotta imagine, that it greatly irritates Jesus. He said he'd be with them always, til the end of the world. He didn't say "in 1400 yrs when the bible is printed, people will have access to my real ministry."

Let's see scripture not just your opinion.
Michael the Prince
Michael is mentioned more in Daniel than in any other book in Scripture.(See Daniel 10:13; 10:21; 12:1.) In all three references, He is called a prince—your prince and the great prince. Isaiah's prophecy about the Messiah (Isaiah 9:6) reveals oneof the key names he says that would apply to the Messiah is "Prince of Peace."
There is another verse in Daniel 8:25 where the "Prince of princes" is mentioned. Again, the cosmic conflict is being played out with Christ on one side and the devil on the other, with humanity serving as the battlefield. "Prince of princes" is actually the same term that is translated "prince of the host" in verse 11. This is similar to "Lord of lords" (Psalm 136:3), "God of gods" (Deuteronomy 10:17), and "King of kings" (Revelation 19:16). All these are titles of deity. He is even referred to as "Messiah the Prince" (Daniel 9:25).
Who is this being that the angels call the Great Prince? Let's let the Bible tell us.
Isaiah 9:6: "And his name shall be called …The Prince of Peace."
Acts 3:14, 15: "But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and … killed the Prince of life."
Acts 5:30, 31: "The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and
hanged on a tree. Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour."
Revelations 1:5: "And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth."
These verses clearly echo with three verses in Daniel in which Michael is called a "prince."
Is Michael Only One of Many?
Daniel 10:13 is probably the most difficult verse regarding Michael: "But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me." It appears at first glance that Michael is only "one of" the chief princes. This is an unfortunate translation in the King James. The word "one" comes from the Hebrew word "echad," which is also frequently translated as "first," as in the president's wife being called "first lady." (See Genesis 1:5; 8:13.) This changes the whole meaning of the verse to Michael being first of, greatest or highest of, to the chief of princes—again a reference to Jesus. The prince of the kingdom of Persia who withstood the angel was no doubt the devil who frequently appears working in the shadow of earthly monarchs such as the king of Babylon, the king of Tyre, and the Roman power (Isaiah 14:4, Ezekiel 28:2, Revelation 12:4). And remember that Jesus calls Satan "the prince of this world" (John 12:31).
Daniel 10:21 says, "But I will show thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince." Notice here that the angel refers to Michael as your Prince. Who was Daniel’s prince? In the previous chapter, we see the answer. In Daniel 9:25, Daniel’s Messiah is called the prince, which is another clear indication of Michael’s identity! So Gabriel is saying that Michael the archangel is Jesus, who knows all the truth of Scripture. Michael Stands Up
The final reference to Michael in Daniel is in chapter 12: "And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people." Notice here that Michael is not called a great prince but "the great prince." Is there any prince greater then Jesus? He is also identified as the one who "standeth for the children of thy people." This means that He intercedes, defends and even stands as a substitute. Who could this be other then Jesus?
