No!!I am just repeating what you bible only believers have been saying over and over again. Quote " If every word, phrase or sentence is NOT in the bible then there is no TRUTH to it"!

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!!!!!
hojo SAYS.....

....Read the Gospels! EVERYTHING that Jesus said, exclaimed, quoted and expressed is "highlighted in red"!...

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.

One thing I remember is a bright light(this was a hour or so after I looked on his face) and since I am on the subject of His face, it doesnt even look like the burial cloth that the rcc portrays as His burial cloth. Oops, another lie of the rcc I have exposed!!!

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.

1Co 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard,

neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath

prepared for them that love him.

1Co 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the

Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

1Co 2:11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of

man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the

Spirit of God.

1Co 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the

spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely

given to us of God.

1Co 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's

wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing

spiritual things with spiritual.

1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of

God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them,

because they are spiritually discerned.

1Co 2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself

is judged of no man.

1Co 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct

him? But we have the mind of Christ.

That should tell you ...that you should not be following Constantin's

fables and conjecture....His dogma, traditions, and lies while

including his pagan calisthenics and rituals in your worship.

Jesus said..

Mat_4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written,

==>Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.<==

Luk_4:8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Why do you serve other gods...

Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith...

Heb_12:2 --> Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Constantine is the author and finisher of yours.

You Roman Constantinians glory in the shame that Jesus despised and

display a corruptible man (a crucifix) 0f what supposed to be ... Christ

upon a cross every where you can.

==>THE CROSS IS NOT GREATER THAN HIS GRACE..

HIS GRACE ... that you do not share with any one but your own Constantinian cult.

Hey Jethro.

Without Constantine christianity would have split into more than the 42,001 christian doctrines we have today and eventually the strong would have muscled out the weak and eventualy flamed out.

There are so many versions of stories of what happened at Nicea, no one has any idea what the real truth is.

Remember these are the same clergy that stood up in the pulpit at every mass, the clergy who chastized us for our trivial sins, at the same time the worst of mortal sins were being committed by themselves.

Today the church has instituted many new safeguards. Good! But lets not forget, it wasn't the clergy that ever came forward, it was always the brave victims and their families. The only reason the church leaders are now apologizing and new safeguards is because they got caught.

If it wasn't for the internet we would know nothing about church scandals. If it wasn't for the brave victims and their families, there would be no safeguards in church and the behind the scene scandals would have carried on like they always have.

UNBELIEVABLE!

Constantine replaced Christianity with his own version which includes all

the pagan practices of the (SO CALLED ) ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH...

THE FACADE IN ROME IS A DUKES MIXTURE OF PAGANISM WITH A TAD OF

CHRISTIANITY...ADDED TO MAKE IT PALPABLE.... TO THOSE.. THAT ARE

WILLINGLY BEING DECEIVED.

I SAY WILLINGLY ..BECAUSE THE TRUTH IS THERE BEFORE THEM IN GOD'S WORD....THE BIBLE.

I saw your update on your wife. I'm glad Kay is doing good. I pray she'll be home with you soon.

Confrint, I do not find any evidence that Constantine did anything to influence Sacred teachings. It appears Catholicism was the same before and after 313 AD. If you say the crucifix was because of Him, you'd be wrong. The Crucifix (with the dying Christ depicted) was introduced in the 6th century. Regardless, I'm not sure why such a powerful reminder of Our Lord would offend you?
The cross (without the figure of Christ) was used at least as early as 211 AD.
I don't know why you keep preaching Constantinism. It seems people use it because they think its believable and they want to justify not being Catholic.
The problem is, you would have to believe Jesus Christ let His Church get infiltrated by a Roman Emperor... Who changed Our Lords will for 1500 yrs. I can't subscribe to that scenario. Its not faith. Its conspiracy Christianity!
