14And he said, The God of our fathers has chosen you, that you should know his will, and see that Just One, and should hear the voice of his mouth.
15For you shall be his witness unto all men of what you have seen and heard.
16And now why do you tarry? arise, and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.
AGAIN, THOSE ARE THE WORD OF ANANIAS TALKING TO PAUL, NOT JESUS TALKING TO ANANIAS.

NOT THE WORDS THAT JESUS SPOKE TO ANANIAS.
OVERRULED. INSUFFICIENT EVIDENCE.
now the words spoken to ananias from Jesus.
9:10 - Now in Damascus there was a disciple by the name of Ananias. The Lord spoke to this man in a dream. calling him by his name. "I am here, Lord," he replied.
9:11-12 - Then the Lord said to him, "Get up and go down to the street called Straight, and enquire at the house of Judas for a man named Saul from Tarsus. At this moment he is praying and he sees in his mind's eye a man by the name of Ananias coming into the house, and placing his hands upon him to restore his sight."
9:13-14 - But Ananias replied, "Lord, I have heard on all hands about this man and how much harm he has done to your holy people in Jerusalem! Why even now he holds powers from the chief priests to arrest all who call upon your name."
9:15-16 - But the Lord said to him, "Go on your way, for this man is my chosen instrument to bear my name before the Gentiles and their kings, as well as to the sons of Israel. Indeed, I myself will show him what he must suffer for the sake of my name."
Judgement in favor of the defendant, atemcowboy
Reconvene with a new judge. The previous judge is delusional with narcissistic visions of granduer.

"And I said: What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said to me: Arise and go to Damascus; and there it shall be told you of all things that you must do. 11 And whereas I did not see for the brightness of that light, being led by the hand by my companions, I came to Damascus, 12 and one Ananias, a man according to the law, having testimony of all the Jews who dwelt there, 13 coming to me and standing by me, said to me: Brother Saul, look up. And I, the same hour, looked upon him. 14 But he said: The God of our fathers has preordained you that you should know his will and see the Just One and should hear the voice from his mouth. 15 For you shall be his witness to all men of those things which you have seen and heard. 16 And now why do you tarry? Rise up and be baptized and wash away your sins, invoking his name."

The Lord told St. Paul to go to Damascus and do what he was told. Ananias told him to arise and be baptized and wash away his sins.

Case closed.

Defendent has the right to start his own sect of make-it-up-as-you-go-along Prestonianism, but Christians shouldn't buy it.

Catholics aren't Christians right Chuck? Lie and/or ignorance #1.
Lie #2 "He may ask you why did you believe you could receive My gift of salvation through the faith of your parents?"
We believe we are saved by God's grace, not through our parents faith.
Lie #3 "He may ask why did you go to a sinner for fogiveness of your sins? I accomplished everything at the cross so you can come right to the throne of grace."
The priest dosn't forgive our sins.
Lie #4 "He may ask why do you glorify Mary over Me? I was the one who suffered and died on the cross for you."
We don't glorify Mary. We don't glorify any creature. We glorify only God.
Lie #5 "He may ask why did you really believe that the Son of God, The Messiah comes in the form of a cracker?"
The Eucharist isn't a cracker.
Chuck, you may think you're being cute, and I don't know what kind of organization you've joined, but they're feeding you lies and I hope you're not putting your eternal soul at stake.
Right off catholic answers Tony...you guys are better off than I am. Biggest bunch of crap I have ever read.

Is the Catholic who confesses his sins to a priest any better off than the non-Catholic who confesses directly to God? Yes. First, he seeks forgiveness the way Christ intended. Second, by confessing to a priest, the Catholic learns a lesson in humility, which is avoided when one confesses only through private prayer. Third, the Catholic receives sacramental graces the non-Catholic doesn’t get; through the sacrament of penance sins are forgiven and graces are obtained. Fourth, the Catholic is assured that his sins are forgiven; he does not have to rely on a subjective "feeling." Lastly, the Catholic can also obtain sound advice on avoiding sin in the future.

Lie #4 "He may ask why do you glorify Mary over Me? I was the one who suffered and died on the cross for you."

"*Did you start your salvation when you were 3 months old at baptism?"

Changing the question Chuck? Your lie was that we believe we are saved by our parents faith.

"*To get true forgiveness, do you have to go to a priest?(if you say no, you better talk to other catholics)"

Your lie was that we go to a sinner for forgiveness of our sins. Our sins are forgivven by God.

"*Sure you do"

That's a lie. There is not one single teaching in all of Catholicism that says we are to glorify Mary over Jesus.

Again, you may feel secure in your new found organization with lots of people cheering you on, but the Lord knows who's lying and who's not.

This verse doesn't say who you're confessing to. But St. James tells us:

15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick man. And the Lord shall raise him up: and if he be in sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16 Confess therefore your sins one to another: and pray one for another, that you may be saved. For the continual prayer of a just man avails much.

You know exactly what I meant about the faith of your parents and you know it. We've talked about it many times.

telling a catholic they glorify Mary is the ame as telling an alcoholic they have a drinking problem. Both will deny it.

First of all, I recognize I'm setting myself up for a scripture bludgeoning from you.
BUT, you asked what my opinion is on the word 'knew' in Genesis.
To me, it doesn't have to mean automatic sexual relations. In fact, it doesn't have to mean sexual relations at all.
It COULD be implied as such and I wouldn't blame anyone if they thought that.
With Mary, it wasn't taught that she bore any child, but Jesus.... Regardless of how the Evangelicals have decided about words in scripture.
It was never taught Chuck.
Your church never told you; you mean .
The Bible says that Mary had other Child.

" HEY READ ALL ABOUT IT IN THE BIBLE
THE BIBLE SAYS MARY HAD OTHER CHILDREN."

So can you give a verse that says we are to confess our Sins to any priest? What you have quoted from the word of God contradicts RCC teachings apparently that went over your head. So you know a Priest is on who gave the sacrificial offerings in the temple, they are know more the curtain has been torn the temple demolished and the ultimate final Priest Jesus the Christ gave the final sacrifice every needed and stated as such on the CROSS and said.

IT IS FINISHED.

The old covenant is finished and over as well as animal sacrifices thus priests with them as well.

Your lie was the accusation that we glorify Mary over Jesus. You lack the Christian humility of admitting your sin of lying. If you prefer to follow an organization that feeds you lies about the faith of Catholic Christians, go for it. I will pray for you.

Are you no longer in Brazil?

James 5:16 - James clearly teaches us that we must “confess our sins to one another,” not just privately to God. James 5:16 must be read in the context of James 5:14-15, which is referring to the healing power (both physical and spiritual) of the priests of the Church. Hence, when James says “therefore” in verse 16, he must be referring to the men he was writing about in verses 14 and 15 – these men are the ordained priests of the Church, to whom we must confess our sins.
