Bye for now.
You are not going by the teachings of the apostles that walked the earth with Jesus , not by a long shot StarC.
You are going by the teachings of the false prophets and teachers that have creeped into the church as Peter warned they would.
Thats what is wrong with just oral teaching and not the written word. What is written can't not be change, but what is taught orally can be changed by whoever is telling the story,.

You are taught the religious teachings of corrupted men who were not after the truth of God, but power and money , and sex.
StarC, what you have been taught is not the truth, the Bible says so not me.

THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS ESTABLISHED IN THE HEARTS OF HIS TRUE BELIEVERS..
THIS IS THE REASON THAT THE APOSTLE PAULE WROTE..
Rom 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
Rom 10:9 -->That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.<--
Rom 10:10 ==> For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. <==
Rom 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

GOD DID NOT ESTABLISHED A PHYSICAL KINGDOM ..IN ROME..
JESUS DID NOT LIE WHEN HES SAID...
Joh 18:36 Jesus answered,--> My kingdom is not of this world:
if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.<---
Joh 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king.
To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world,
that
I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

Why do you lie about others?
Read the Gospels! EVERYTHING that Jesus said, exclaimed, quoted and expressed is "highlighted in red"!... You can say,twist, manipulate and "spin" it anyway you want--like most Protestants do with the Bible, but Jesus (clearly and explicitly) "said it" regarding His One True (Universal-Church--AND---FURTH ERMORE----over 2000 years of PROVEN and VERIFABLE Apostolic Church History (CONFIRMS IT).. 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!!!!!

This Evening's Meditation
C. H. Spurgeon

----------

"And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither."—Revelation 11:12.
ITHOUT considering these words in their prophetical connection, let us regard them D as the invitation of our great Forerunner to His sanctified people. In due time there shall be heard "a great voice from heaven" to every believer, saying, "Come up hither." This should be to the saints the subject of joyful anticipation. Instead of dreading the time when we shall leave this world to go unto the Father, we should be panting for the hour of our emancipation. Our song should be—

"My heart is with Him on His throne,
And ill can brook delay;
Each moment listening for the voice,
'Rise up and come away.'"

We are not called down to the grave, but up to the skies. Our heaven-born spirits should long for their native air. Yet should the celestial summons be the object of patient waiting. Our God knows best when to bid us "Come up thither." We must not wish to antedate the period of our departure. I know that strong love will make us cry,

"O Lord of Hosts, the waves divide,
And land us all in heaven;"

but patience must have her perfect work. God ordains with accurate wisdom the most fitting time for the redeemed to abide below. Surely, if there could be regrets in heaven, the saints might mourn that they did not live longer here to do more good. Oh, for more sheaves for my Lord's garner! more jewels for His crown! But how, unless there be more work? True, there is the other side of it, that, living so briefly, our sins are the fewer; but oh! when we are fully serving God, and He is giving us to scatter precious seed, and reap a hundredfold, we would even say it is well for us to abide where we are. Whether our Master shall say "go," or "stay," let us be equally well pleased so long as He indulges us with His presence.

The Church did not write the title of the thread. That was written by a nominal "Catholic" with extremely poor reading skills. If you read the link, it's not what the pope said at all.
.
That deals with the title of the thread being "an attack on Protestants."
.
Maybe you really DID mean the title of the board.
.
"Topix Catholic Forum."
.
If you read that as an attack on Protestants, you are so divorced from reality that I have no idea what to say to you.
.
Prayers for the conversion of the Jewish people do not constitute an attack. We have a belief about what we belief to be the Truth.(Doesn't everyone?) We belief Jesus to be the Fulfillment of Jewish Messianic Hope.How is it an attack to hope and pray that the Jewish people would come to see that as well? Seeing as we see them as our elder siblings in belief in ONe True God, you claim that this is an "attack" seems wilfully distorted.
.
The term "defective" as applied to theOrthodox faith is in the context of Apostolic authority. Is there any lack there (any defect?) It's a valid question, and a term I imagine they would apply to US.(Personally, I have never heard it applied to the Orthodox, and I will have to look it up. I see it applied to any community lacking a bishop, or to the Anglican communion, which was founded by a murderer, but never to the Orth. I could have it wrong. I'll check.)
.
Choosing to see the examination of a "defect" in Apostolic Succession ("defective") as "an insult" or an "attack" is a tad precious, but that's you, on a regular basis.
.
Perhaps you could discuss all this with the people you "lead," missy.

First, I am not sure it was written by a Catholic at all as many articles on these forums are not they are simply articles about the church. What is clear though is the author took liberties on what was said.

Here is the actual document from which the author garnered the statements and rephrase in his own words.

This was an interfaith document to the Bishops.

I would not expect anything rational or reasonbable coming from Mike or FM they are two atheists with an axe to grind.

As Valentine's Day approaches, are you sensing the hesitancy?

Are you tired of looking through cards that don't reflect what your dating relationship or marriage is really like? Or, are you dreading the day coming and going and you might not receive a card at all?

Many women I know don't look forward to Valentine's Day because they feel it shines a spotlight on what is wrong in their relationship or what is just plain missing in their life. Whether you're single or married, I feel for you. And in some ways, I can relate.

As my 20th Wedding Anniversary approached, I found myself agonizing over picking out the right card for my husband. After 20 years together, so many of the cards out there didn't sound like reality. A funny card seemed too trite after 20 years. A romantic card filled with all the things I said to him the first few years of our marriage sounded too gushy. The spiritual card sounded too serious. I ended up choosing reality and gave him one that talked of his support and friendship and about him being there through "life's challenges." I had to laugh when his card to me also mentioned the word "challenge."

My card hunt got me thinking about God, whom Isaiah 54:5 refers to as my "Heavenly Husband." What kind of card would I pick out for Him after 20 years together? Would I get him the card that says "You're my Knight in Shining Armor"? I've written books on how He truly is our Perfect Prince. It's true He's never let me down and like the cards say "I can't imagine my life without Him." Or would it be more appropriate to choose a card that talks about "weathering the storms together" and knowing that through it all His love has been there? I know that every perfect line I read in a greeting card is true of the Perfect Love, the Lord Jesus. In fact, picking out a card for Him would be quite easy.

But what if God were picking out a card for you or me? What if He wanted to express His sentiments to us after "all these years together"? You know, He already has...in several places throughout Scripture:

•God has given us the romantic card: "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving kindness" (Jeremiah 31:3).
•He has given us a card about sacrificial love: "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:13).
•He has given us a card of encouragement and support: "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you" (Hebrews 13:5).
And I can't help but think He would love to give us a funny card that reminded us, in spite of our actions at times, that He's never lost His heart for us.

To be honest, God would have every right to give me a card that said "In spite of the mess you've been most of your life, amazingly, I'm still here." Yet, instead of boasting on Himself, He would probably continue to dote on me instead, saying something like: "My eyes still see you as precious as the day you were born."

In Psalm 139:17 David, the Psalmist, sang: "How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand...."

How much does He love you and me? He has said, in so many words, "let me count the ways."

It's obvious to me that when it comes to a relationship with God, He's the shining star. He's the One who "puts up" with us. He's the One who patiently endures the relationship. He's the One who never gives up. He's the One who is committed to the end, who has secured our happily ever after with His own life. He's the One.

Amen

Ezekiel 28:16–17

and I destroyed you, O guardian cherub,
from the midst of the stones of fire.
An angel means ‘a messenger’. Cherubim and seraphim are specific

creatures that we often call angels. Michael, the Archangel, is a

title for the highest messenger who is as God. That’s what that means.

When it says, the Lord Himself comes down from heaven with the voice

of the Archangel it means the Lord comes with the voice of the

greatest messenger. Directly from the Greek, that’s what it’s saying.

And if you go to Daniel 12:1 it says: At that time shall Michael stand

up, the great Prince that stands for the children of thy people.

For instance, the Bible says that Jacob wrestled with an Angel, and

then later it says he wrestled with the Lord. Well, he wrestled with

Christ. Jesus was the one. One reason I know that is that the Bible

says No man has seen the Father at any time. So if Jacob saw the Lord

he must have seen God the Son, and that would be Jesus. The Bible

tells us that Michael is the one who resurrected Moses in the Book of

Jude. So if He’s the resurrection and He’s raising the dead when He

comes down from heaven, Michael the Archangel is another title for

Christ.

only the sda thinks that Michael is Jesus. are you outing yourself.

Most Christians are amazed to learn that SDA teaches that Jesus is Michael the Archangel, but Ellen G. White said He was Michael, so if they changed this, they'd need to reject her as "the spirit of prophecy" and they'd not be the remnant church! So now they hold He's both God the Son, and Michael. In fact, Ellen G. White DENIED the deity of Jesus, who in 1903 said,“The man Christ Jesus was not the Lord God Almighty”(ms 140, SDA Commentary V, p. 1129). Yet, modern SDA claim to believe in Jesus' deity and the Godhead in their official statement of faith (SDA Believe,# 2 and 4).

It makes a great difference "who" Jesus really is, for 2nd Corinthians 11:4 warned there'd be those who'd teach another Jesus, preach a different gospel, and have another spirit. These marks identify cults, who invariably attack the Doctrine of Christ. Early SDA's denied Jesus' deity saying He was only an archangel. Their Commentary, volume 5, pg. 1129, cites Ellen White as saying...“The man Christ Jesus was not the Lord God Almighty.”

SOURCE: Ellen G. White (1903, ms 150, SDA; Commentary V, p. 1129)

John 1:1-3,14; 10:33; 1st Timothy 2:5; 3:16; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 7:4; Revelation 1:8; 15:3, 16:5-7; and 17:14--all show that Jesus is Almighty God. Ellen G. White is a LIAR! The REAL Jesus is the God-man Christ Jesus. He was never an Archangel! He's not God-angel-man. Clearly, SDA's have a different Jesus, a false Jesus. It is important to note that Jehovah's Witnesses (JW's) teach the same false doctrine, i.e., that Jesus is Michael. As with

if michael is jesus, which the sda satanic follower claims, why does this verse indicate otherwise. since we know that jesus is more powerful than satan and aint afraid of him.

Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

been telling you people for 3 years that this kook is a sda and belongs to the devil and when he opens his mouth, more and more satanic sda knowledge comes from him.

now you know why the sda cultist hates me as he does.lol the devil cant stand to be mocked and exposed for what he is.

this verse in thess, is meaning that an archangel is[accompaning] Jesus, along with Gods trumpet. using your reasoning that Jesus is an archangel, we could assume that Jesus is also a trumpet.lol
