Bob M. work for the township and could hardly read, but boy that man could Preach. my Pastor worked for the B&O RR and no man could preach as good as he could. My Mentor worked in a lab and was the second best Preacher that I have ever heard.My first Pastor was an electrician, and few could preach as good as he could Preach.
and I feel certain that all of the Christians can testify of Preachers that they know, that are Godly men that had occupations and still are great Preachers.
cont
, when God anoints someone to preach you know they are going to preach.
Pastor Sere, has been attacked many times, the devil doen't want him in the pulpit.

Michael--you wouldn't know the truth if it came "directly from
God Himself"! For someone who claims to have the truth, your defiance and rebelliousness toward the Catholic Church only confirms that your only sources of "so-called truth" are from rebel anti-catholics like yourself, who will exaggerate and say or do "anything" in order to spread their anti-catholic "snake oil venom"! You are "fooling no-one but yourself with your "National Inquirer" "junk news"!!
* The Catholic Church "continues to grow" each and every year, 1.5% in 2012 while "every Protestant Church continues to decline
* Thousands upon thousands of Protestants are leaving their "relative truth" Christianity and coming to the TRUTH of the RCC
* The seminaries are at the highest level in over 40 years. Overflowing in both major and minor seminaries in Mpls-St.Paul and in many other dioceses around the U.S.
* Vocations to the convent of (young) Nuns have increased to the
highest level since 1980.
Furthermore---vocations of both priests and nuns are overwhelmingly
orthodox, dedicated to the teachings of the Church and the bible
HOJO says.....

...vocations to the convent of (young) Nuns have increased to the
highest level since 1980.

MICHAEL says.......Well! then isn't that good news? Were you hoping I would say it was bad news so you could keep on attacking me and everyone else non catholic?

A good news story! New fresh recruits. A boost that the church desperately needs.

Now you will be mad at me because I agree with you.

<quoted text>where did you find this gem of info that Joseph had been married for over 50 years when he married Mary?
common sense tells me this, either you are lying or your info is a lie.
this would have made jospeh over 70 years old, and no doubt to feeble to walk all of the distance down to egypt.
dont people like you have any common sense or did the nums beat that out of you idiots.BTW, I HATE STUPIDITY
Why don't you do some research yourself. Catholic encyclopedia on line is a good beginning. Yes Joseph was up in age, during this time in our history it wasn't unusual for people to live 100+ yrs. It may have something to do with the calendar at that time.
I do no lie for this is a sin.
there is not much written in scripture of Joseph. the last was when Jesus escaped from Mary and Joseph, they searched for him for 3 days and found him in temple preaching to the high priests there. Why they didn't look for him there first, I don't know. Anyway this is the last of him in scriptures. It's believed he past away after that but what better way to go than to be close to Mary and Jesus.
Joseph was a Just, God fearing and loving man. When the angle came to tell him about king Herod and his scheme to kill 2yr old and younger boys through out town, the angle told Joseph to get out of town. Joseph did just that, he went to Northern Africa, when the king was gone and no more killing of the children, an angel appeared to Joseph again to tell him he could go back home. This is when he packed up his family again and went to Nazerath (my sp,is bad, i know).

Hate is a horrible thing. You can hate brocolli, spinach, etc. but one should not hate another one of God's children. If you hate stupidity, perhaps you shouldn't look in the mirror.

Show is "undeniable documentation" that it is NOT Jesus Christs TRUE Church! You can't! We know it and you know it! Therefore, discussion debate and argument is over! So--- we, as Catholics, on this forum, along with the other 1.168 Billion Catholics around the world, will continue to follow the overwhelming majority of "documented, historical, biblical and recorded TRUTH from the Early Church Fathers, Lives of the Saints, and the Historian Apologist authors and writers (both Catholic and Protestant) that confirm it IS IN FACT Jesus Christs One (and only TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church!--You my friend--can do and believe what you want! Your loss---is our gain--in the TRUE Gospel and historical teachings of Jesus Christ.

But the CC will, because Christ said so." what book states this as fact? would like to read it,see what he says exactly.
Jethro,

...... you and I and many others on this forum were born by CHANCE into this belief, however we used our own conscience to get out.

.... There was no bolt of lightening, no big foot coming out of the clouds squashing me, life is good! Those still in the church SHUN anyone who leaves just like AMISH people do.

Catholics have to remember, when they donate money, some of it is funding evil. Its better to throw that money away. Collection plate money subsidizes court costs to defend the sinners in the clergy. From Boston to LA, and right around the world, catholics such as STAR C, ANTHONY, REGINAM. HOJO, CLAY, CATHOLIC MOM....are not only paying the meal tickets for the clergy, they are paying for the felony crimes that the evil ones have committed.

We know right from wrong, we treat everyone as equals, and we don't fund any evil.

What God wouldn't like us?

I will hold tight onto my hard earned money, and donate it to causes that I KNOW only do good.



At least the investors from Wall STreet are honest about its greed and lust.

pretty stupid to think that and/or teach that false beleif. jesus is in heaven sitting on the right hand of God, not in ssome piece of grain.lol
"Aposolic Succession"
no such animal. there is no succession of any person being a Apostle. that office is reseerved only for those of us who have seen the resurrected Christ, pope benny hasnt, nor have any of your leaders of this false religion, Jesus would never appear to any of you catholics until the time comes when He destroys your false religion.
Authoritative Teaching, rooted in Apostolic Succession.
lol. no Aposlte has ever taught that mary was sinless, this false lies came much later after the death of those who could call your teachers lairs to their face. this false doctrine began to show its face around 1854 or thereabout.Rom 3:23 KJV) For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; and this incluedes mary who was part of the human race before your cult elevated her to the office of queen of Heaven,
I could go on and speak about every lie that you have said on here but one day, God himself will speak and then you along with all catholics will find out how they have been deceived and you who deceive them will face a even greater punishment.
Don't forget, you're basing all this on a lie.(scripture alone)
To me, I see Jesus Christ clearly starting a Church with authority given to it from above. THAT is Biblical.
You see Jesus giving a Bible for individual determining on His ministry. THAT IS NOT Biblical.

You can't convince anyone Chuck. You're not an authority.
Its like Canada trying to convince America, that the word 'Union' in the Constitution means 'Mexico too'.
The Bible wasn't given to everyone for 'figuring out their own Christianity.
Its ridiculous to come along 1800 yrs later and change things, based on a word written 2,000 yrs ago.

Since the Apostle Peter wrote ...
2Pe_3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that
==> one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
1400 years then is less than a day an a half...in God's timing.
Yet you Roman Constantin-es believe you control God's word and His eternal plan of Salvation..
Your arrogance is beyond explanation.
Your religion is not even dry behind the ears.
"1400 yrs is less than a day an a half..in Gods timing"

Then the Pentecostal religion is only 25 minutes old? lol

So you think Christ let Christianity get all messed up by a Roman Emperor (btw, you've given nothing to support this)?
Jesus quietly waited for some letters from His Apostles to be printed in 1450. Then He waited a few more hundred yrs for some sect to see 'born again' in one of those books. THEN Christianity finally was revealed?
I don't know what to say anymore. I'm dumbfounded you not only get people to believe this fantasy, but you believe it yourself!!

The real kicker is: no where in the Bible does Jesus mention such a scenario. He only mentions a Church that even the Devil himself will not topple.
He says nothing about a set of Books that people will read to determine their own Christianity.
Yet, you've convinced yourself that He did??

You, Regina, Anthony, HOJO, etc are not priest either so why should we listen to you. Who are you, see where your logic leads no were.
The Holy Spirit uses whom He will and He does need your permission StarC.
You should pray for wisdom, and ask God in the name Of Jesus for a clear revelation of His Holy Word.
Catholics on here aren't preaching the Bible how we see it. At least, not in determining the Ministry of Our Lord. You can trust that we will always be in communion with the Bishop in Rome.

And a Catholic in Africa - whom I've never met - will share the same faith as me, and the same bread and wine. This is how Jesus Christ set up His Church.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't you believe in Sola Fide and Hank does not?
One of you are leading people down the wrong path.
Salvation is pretty important. The eternal destination of our soul is at stake! You might want to make sure you don't send someone down the wrong road.

I still think it would be interesting if the Pope came here.

He has allowed a lot of hate to brew up over the years.
Allowing his colleges to abuse children and fellow priest under him. He enabled them to continue hurt innocent children,

(but the heck with them, as long as the church continues on we will just shut our mouth and hide the truth from the world, if the victim says anything we will punish him and make it look like it was his fault for enticing the abuser, is that the way you think Regina).
If the pope came on this forum, ReginaM. would lead the catholic brigade in posting 100 times an hour to the pope telling him how good she has been, how often she goes to church, that she knows all the scriptures and canon laws, that she bakes muffins in with her church group and the non catholics are stuck in sola scriptura..........and the pope would say,.....SO!
