23When Jesus returned to the Temple and began teaching, the leading priests and elders came up to him. They demanded,“By what authority are you doing all these things? Who gave you the right?”

24“I’ll tell you by what authority I do these things if you answer one question,” Jesus replied. 25“Did John’s authority to baptize come from heaven, or was it merely human?”

They talked it over among themselves.“If we say it was from heaven, he will ask us why we didn’t believe John. 26But if we say it was merely human, we’ll be mobbed because the people believe John was a prophet.” 27So they finally replied,“We don’t know.”

And Jesus responded,“Then I won’t tell you by what authority I do these things.

Confrinting--As a former bible only Protestant, I know the bible as well, if not better than you and can quote one verse after another just like you! The difference is that you "list a bunch of verses" ---"make them mean" ONLY what you want them to mean" and then "attach" your own "distorted, pervertedand vindictive" personal opinion to them and call it truth!!The FACT is that you have not only (REJECTED) the TRUE INTERPRETATION of Sacred Scripture, but have (INTERJECTED) you own anti-catholic "personal opinion" where-ever it "fits your heretical animosity" against the TRUE, SPOKEN AND STATED WORDS of Jesus Christ HIMSELF, in the Gospels!!---Lets start with Matthew 16:13-21. These are Jesus Christs OWN EXPLICIT words regarding His (on and only) Universal Church. His Church where he appoints Peter as His earthly representative, to LEAD HIS CHURCH...... You, Confrinting, have become an "expert" at "bible verse -burger flipping" with a cafeteria style of Christianity, that "picks and chooses" ONLY what you want to believe, only what you want to hear and only keeps your Protestant (bible verse (shakey) pyramid) from "tumbling down"! God has not appointed you as a minister of the faith in Jesus Christ when you (continually) go so far as to beligerently "reject Jesus Christs OWN SPOKEN WORDS in the Gospels! Lets move on the John 6:47-59 regarding (again) Jesus Christs EXPLICIT SPOKEN WORDS regarding HIS true body and true blood in the Eucharist. Your "entire (half-truth, half-heresy) ministry" is based entirely upon "attacking, condemning and passing your personal opinionated "hate-filled judgement against Jesus Christ Historically and biblically PROVEN One True Apostolic Catholic Church. You do not speak for God!!
IF and that is a big IF you know the bible so well why do you not know that James the half brother of Jesus was the head of the Church in jerusalem. why do you not know that. you certainly have been shown that numerous times on this forum

He made you a minister??? I find that impossible to believe!!!
But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
Ministers teach and are not silent!!!!!!

One day Percy a housework-challenged husband decided to wash his Sweatshirt. Seconds
after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to me,'What setting do I use on
the washing machine?'

'It depends,' I replied.'What does it say on your shirt?'

He yelled back,' OHIO STATE !'

Your words are the second most asinine I have seen on this forum!!!!

Nobody...saved or otherwise...knows for certain what gopher wood was!!!!!

gopher wood:(Christian Religious Writings / Bible) the wood used in the construction of Noah's ark, thought to be a type of cypress (Genesis 6:14)

gopher wood: a kind of tree or wood (as used for building), apparently the cypress:-- gopher.

wonder who would know the jews or you.

The Jewish Encyclopedia believes it was most likely a translation of the Babylonian "gushure i÷ erini" (cedar-beams), or the Assyrian "giparu" (reed).[3] The Aramaic Targum Onkelos, considered by many Jews to be an official translation of the Hebrew scripture renders this word as &#1511;&#1491;&#15 12;&#1493;&#1505; (qadros) i.e., cedar[SEE THIS}.

The Syriac Peshitta translates this word as &#1829;&#1834;&#18 33;&#1808; (‘arqa), box wood.[4]

The Cypress tree flowers March through May. It is found all across Israel. The Cypress was brought by the Jewish National Fund at the end of the nineteen century. It was planted to break the wind around many orchards.

I don't know because I may be wrong but I have such an uneasy feeling about President Obama for some reason.

Could it possibly be that he is an anti-Christ covertly? I'll be praying about this man that God will pull back the veil and let me see if there is something about this man that Christians should be concerned about. I just got this feeling after he was elected for a second term. I sure hope I'm wrong though.

You need to read more.
the NT also says scripture is sufficient for all Chruch issues.
Care for the verses?
No sir, the New Testament does not say its sufficient for all Church issues. That's ridiculous and you know it.

the problem here is that everyone except me and a couple others are trying to out do each other in bible knowledge,no one is really trying to solve the mystery of the churches belief and if a god does truly exist.from what i have seen here is no one has the answer,i have my theory just you have yours,i believe that the one god theory is wrong,no just entity exists,if he does,where did he come from? why did it take billions of years before he decided to create man/woman? was he busy creating life else where before us? there are a lot of people who believe aliens did actually visit this planet going back 5000 yrs and more,there are credible drawings dating that far back of strange objects in the sky,and strange looking beings,and there is the painting of the maddonna with child,in the upper right corner next to the sun there is a flying object in the sky in the painting,which was done thousands of years before man considered being able to fly,and the giant carvings in south america that can only be seen from the sky as actual legitamate patterns dug right into the mountain top (can't remember the name of the mountains) how can you explain it? they hasd primitive tools back then,all hand tools,and the pyrimids so well carved out stones you can't slide a piece of paper between them,all done by hand and moved how? the stones weighed tons,how'd they do it? these are credible because you can see it,touch it,it's undeniable.but when it comes to god/jesus we have nothing to support the scriptures/bible,no evidence whatso ever,why is that? and is there any proof out there god actually exists??

Monday's (Feb. 11) surprising announcement by Pope Benedict XVI that he was resigning from the papacy struck some observers like a bolt out of the blue.

And a few hours later, an actual bolt of lightning struck St. Peter's Basilica, the centerpiece of the Vatican and one of the holiest sites in Christendom, NBC News reported.

Was the lightning strike, coming just hours after Pope Benedict's announcement, evidence of God's wrath, or some ominous sign from above? Perhaps, but it was more likely the natural result of a rainstorm that was passing over Rome at the time.

Lightning often strikes religious symbols, because they are usually placed high in the sky and are, in many cases, the highest thing around. Coupled with the fact that they're often made of metal, lightning striking religious statuary or other icons seems quite normal.

Brazil's 130-foot "Christ the Redeemer" statue atop Rio de Janeiro's Sugarloaf Mountain, for example, has been struck by lightning several times since it was completed in 1931.

Secular objects are also often struck by lightning. Airplanes are struck by lightning frequently, and the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and other tall buildings have all been hit.

St. Peter's Basilica is the tallest dome in the world at 448 feet (137 meters) from the floor to the cross that was added to the very top by Pope Clement VIII in the 16th century. A lightning rodpoints skyward from the top of that cross — it's likely that this is what was struck by lightning Monday.

JETHRO:if it is a sign from a god it is a warning sign,it's telling the church to start fresh and new, and be what it is meant to be, a place of worship that men,women,and children don't have to fear.confess their sins to the world and start anew.
