You're isolating that verse and manipulating it for your conspiracy Christianity.
pssst under your criteria you shouldn't say the 'The Lords Prayer' more than once a week... If that!
Lol
What I quoted was not a verse...it was verses..I did not manipulate it...I quoted it verbatim from Scripture...

It clearly shows the Catholic teaching on prayer is not sourced on Scripture...

lets see you prove this statement.
Can you imagine preston, JESUS, who relied on the scriptures of the Old, and by the way everlasting covenant of HIS Jewish people,would not expect that His Apostles would NEVER write down the things they saw and heard from His own lips? How ridiculous to use that ploy that Jesus never left a manuel or wanted a book.DAN and all the Catholics should know better,they have a zillion books on the subject of Christ,who are they trying to kid?

The fact that you said that the Pope's statement is making you 'seriously consider leaving the church', just reinforces why it does matter whether people are Catholic, methodist, lutheran, etc. Spiritual relativsm is not new, you and those like you, who believe that the truth of what the Church teaches is somehow subject to whether you agree with it or not are exactly why the Pope is saying what he is saying. He's not saying something new, it's what the Church has ALWAYS taught! Your comments are just proving the points that the Pope made in the homily he gave at conclave before his election: http://www.oecumene.radiovaticana.org/en1/Art...
You would do well to read this and anyone else who may be guilty of "being tossed to and fro by every wave of doctrine"... Eph. 4:14
You must be kidding! The only true church, hahaha! You people are so full of yourselves. If jesus was here today in flesh he would undoubtably walk past the doors of the catholic church with his followers just as he did with the jews! God help you and your pope (dope)! Anyone this arrogant has no right to be pope! The only true god is in heaven with his son Jesus not in any building or city regardless of how holy you think it is! The church has always taught they are the only true church for the same reason the jews said the same thing control and fear of losing it! Get a clue!!!

Besides ox, I asked you to show me where the CC puts sacred tradition above sacred scripture. The Hail Mary (although its based on sacred scripture) is not sacred tradition.
The prayer call the Our Father is in Scripture....Mt 6:9-12

Mt 6:9 ¶ After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Show me the Hail Mary in Scripture as is the Our Father.......

The Bible teaches "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God"..
Catholics say....that is bunk...the truth of the matter is, Mary was not a sinner!!!!!
In the Constitution Ineffabilis Deus of 8 December, 1854, Pius IX pronounced and defined that the Blessed Virgin Mary "in the first instance of her conception, by a singular privilege and grace granted by God, in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the human race, was preserved exempt from all stain of original sin."
The Fathers call Mary the tabernacle exempt from defilement and corruption (Hippolytus, "Ontt. in illud, Dominus pascit me");
Origen calls her worthy of God, immaculate of the immaculate, most complete sanctity, perfect justice, neither deceived by the persuasion of the serpent, nor infected with his poisonous breathings ("Hom. i in diversa");
Ambrose says she is incorrupt, a virgin immune through grace from every stain of sin ("Sermo xxii in Ps. cxviii);
You've pretty much proved you're irrelevant on this forum. But I'll play along to your stupid word play (and btw ox, the way you toy around with sacred scripture is nothing short of a sin)

"All have sinned" would not include Jesus Christ nor Mary nor any infant.
Now please don't do this with our Holy Book. It does not belong to you and you've got no business trying to teach on it. Ok?

Horse puckee:
Catholics consider their "traditions" "catechism" "magnastrium" above the Bible....proof....their teachings contradict the Bible..
I have had one staunch Catholic tell me that the Bible is only a reference book...authored by men...
The Bible says "what God has joined together, let no man put asunder"...

The Catholics "put asunder what God has joined together" as a routine matter...it is called annulment...

annulment: 1.(Law) a formal invalidation, as of a marriage, judicial proceeding, etc

Note...For a marriage to be invalidated...there must be a marriage!!!!

You and Dan both are like trying to nail jello to a tree. You don't stand firm anywhere or hold firmly to anything except what the men running the church today tell you too. Your following men. Your CONVICTION is to them and an ever evolving church that has perverted the church of scripture.
The Catholic Church has never veered from scripture. Ever.
No Pope, Bishop or Priest has any authority to go against scripture. Everything that was revealed from the Apostles concerning scripture is done. This is why 2,000 yr later, the Catholic and Orthodox look so much different than you 40,000 +. We have not changed you have!

The so-called 'church of Christ' looks like any other fundie sect that's popped up in the last 200 yrs. You guys cherry picked your own religion based on private interpretation of the Catholic Bible.
Rob mentioned another group who tried to build a tower to Heaven. Do you remember them from the Old Testament?

Thanks for proving my words...Catholic teach Mar y was sinless...which is opposite to what Scripture says!!!!!

According to your teachings...babies are born with original sin!!!! You don't know that????

Quote: Original sin may be taken to mean:(1) the sin that Adam committed; (2) a consequence of this first sin, the hereditary stain with which we are born on account of our origin or descent from Adam.

From the earliest times the latter sense of the word was more common, as may be seen by St. Augustine's statement: "the deliberate sin of the first man is the cause of original sin" (De nupt. et concup., II, xxvi, 43). It is the hereditary stain that is dealt with here. As to the sin of Adam we have not to examine the circumstances in which it was committed nor make the exegesis of the third chapter of Genesis.

The question of this thread is....
Why must Catholic theology deny the word "Church" to all other denominations?
What real world evidence do we have to justify such claim?
Are Catholic societies more just?
More educated?
Less violence?
Do Catholics commit fewer crimes?
Do Catholics demonstrate a lower rate of alcohol and drug abuse?
Are Catholic Priests -- with supposed mystical powers direct from Jesus -- more moral than other clergy?
It's been 1600 years. What are the facts? Where is the historical real-life evidence?


Before you attack 99% of America's Founders and the majority of Churches in the USA today...
Please tell us... WHERE'S THE BEEF
They have no proof and they never did. You see its all about control to ensure their followers stay faithful they make rediculious claims that have no merit whatsoever! Its all about controlling their flock of foolish men and women who believe they're better than everyone else! This is the first sign that you should avoid catholics at all costs! They themselves are false profits that have nothing to offer except spiritual death and zero enlightenment! I would have no faith before I joined such a selfish order. It's unfortunate, their selfish nature prevents them from ever being acknowledged as the one true church!

Great post, Troy. Thanks for the link, as well.
God bless.
Troy is a fool and the catholic church is just as corrupt as ever! Their statement alone shows just how flawed and detached from gods ways they truly are! May God help you find your way threw the dark because you are in the dark my friend. Just because you claim your the best doesn't mean you are!

I do not believe in any Catholic authority, however, my church, Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) are taught NOT to judge other religions! Many good and godly people can be found in each of them. One has no "God Given" right to judge them, even when beliefs differ. This is what we need to do, especially as fellow Christians - does not the Bible say: "Judge not, least ye be judged!" ?

Um, ugh.. Duh, I don't see Christ ordering anyone to compile a Bible. Do you?

Don't you think that this is why the New Testament wasn't even written until 30-50 yrs after Jesus Christ died??

in your previous reply, you asked the question(rhetoric, of course) about any of his siters not being with mary. now I cant prove this of course, but one sister might have been there with the name of Salome. and we do know that this name is also given as the mother of james and john, and allegely a sister of mary[which I dont agree with] according to rc tradition[ In Roman Catholic tradition Salome is identified with Mary, mother of James and counted as Mary Salome among the Three Marys.]

but I do believe that this salome was a very good friend of mary, hence my opinion(which is all that it is)that mary named one of her daughters after this good friend

The holy bible belongs to all whom receive its intended purpose just as Jesus saves those who believe in him you fool! How dare you tell someone they have no business teaching the bible when you have no idea what a quarter of the scripture means and that's obvious based on the fact that your a catholic!

Ooh, I wouldn't announce your Mormon faith on this forum. They'll surround you like a pack of wolves and pounce on ya.
Catholics however, would enjoy your company and would respect your religious views.

You are correct sir! No one has the God given right to judge any religion unless its the catholic religion! It's obvious they are not the one true church based on that comment alone! I wouldn't go to a catholic church unless I was looking for spiritual death and I wanted to have someone else pretend they could forgive me for my sin! Imagine that a priest forgiving me that's as useless as believing the pope could actually bless me and I would actually prosper from it!
