Allow me to correct -- "native" slave labor.
But I have already agreed with Dan. I was wrong.
Most of the gold adorning the Vatican came from happy, unionized natives who always wanted to be miners. The Vatican was appreciative and honored their labor by seeing that they were paid top dollar.
The funding to build the Vatican came from unsolicited donations in quantities that can only be considered a divine miracle. Under no circumstances were indulgences ever sold. No promises were ever made. All giving was out of love, never out of fear.
Catholics love La La Land.
Can't cite that either?

Wait a second. You're demanding that God reveal to you in the NT, an example of a musical instrument being played at worship, then you'll accept playing and creating music for him?
How about just using His gift of logic?
Too many examples of people finding their sinful fate by implementing their own logic rather than following the commandments of God. I highlighted MANY examples of this for you earlier this morning.
I'm not demanding anything of God.

I'm not sure I why you would sling this one at me. It has nothing to do with anything I said.
Saban, to use the Holy Scriptures like that is a sin. You guy throw these verses around like snowballs.
You said you thought we were the only one's that followed the NT pattern for worship. The Bible doesn't say getting to heaven is a democracy and the most popular wins. I just thought a reminder of what Matt. 7:14 says would let you know I will never care what men think or even if I'm among the least popular. If we're so different, we may be doing something right.

Show me the scripture proving I contradict scripture to allow my children to hear, believe, repent and confess before their baptism.
Peter gave directions the day the church came into being. He's not contradicting Jesus' earlier words at all he's just informing us how to be baptized. Ignore him if you think he lied, but I'll follow his instructions and in doing so I'm following Jesus' instructions too.
John 3:5.

Do you deny baptism until your children can perform an act to your satisfaction?

The instrument to be played is the heart in which we must pay close attention to the words.

come on. how many times have I said that a person has to look at teh spsiritual side of things.
one thing is certain, you have been locked up but now since saban is here, your tue colors have resurfaced, Havent they?

for me, I could care less if your church plays instruments or not, I love old time music acapella, my wife always sings without being accompanied with an instrument. where I differ with your false religion is over your lack of knowledge concerning Baptism.

you and your buddy come on here and say that you receive the Holy Ghost when you are Baptised and yet there is no mention of any person in the NT receiving Him at that time, but your campbellite cult says that it follows the NT and the NT only.

LET GOD BE TRUE AND ALL MEN(CAMPBELL, STONE ETC) LIARS.

you should ask other cult followers that, but for the Born Again Christian, we got Saved by the Blood of the lamb, and that had nothing to do with any church membership.
I got Saved in my moms church, but attended it very liitle in over 30 years, and my mom prayed many years for me to get Saved and when i did, she never said that her church was to be my church and in fact, God led me to another church,the following week, and that bothered my mom not in the Least. she was just glad that I was going somewhere. however we still went to church together many times. and I will not forget when God told me to invite her former Pastor when I got Saved to come and Preach at the church that I was Pastoring as He told me that it would be the last time that we three would be in church together, and it was as she died three weeks later.

a church in and of itself has no Saving Power, God gives us salvation, a Church nurishes us and helps us in our Holiness Walk with Him but not if we attend cults, those cause people to go to hell. and a person can be as nice as can be and very sincere, but they also can be sincerely wrong, and i am using Hank as that kind of a person that is being mislead and is misleading others down that path into hell.

Well, not very serious. You reduce it to bread and wine when Christ in John 6 said clearly that we are to partake of His Body and Blood.
Your rejection of Him in this regard renders it a mid-meeting snack, or represents you being "in communion" with ..... bread.
Dan, it is the symbolism that we are to remember, the fellowship that we as Christians are to share with one another.

It can not be literaly His Body and His blood for a few simple reason. first His body was not broken in the first place(you catholics do know that right)and the same with the Blood, it had not be shed yet for the sins of the Whole World, so why make them symbols of something that had not happened yet.

he had supper with His friends, simple as that. and he had more to eat that just bread and wine to drink, yet your catholicas are silent on that matter, why is that?

that was a very special time for all of them, I have no doubt about that. they were about to lose their best friend on this Earth, and that is what we are to remember, He is our best friend, and what he ate and drank that day isnt important. and no church or any other cult such as yours actually eat the type of food that comes from the same storehouse as what they ate that day, so you are getting nothing out of that ritual that you take often, seldom or not at all.

and since we cant partake of food that is grown in that cocuntry, it then remains that something more is being offered up by the Lord for us to do, AND THAT IS TO REMEMBER WHAT HE WAS ABOUT TO GO THRU.

AND THAT MIGHT BE WHY HE SAID FOR US TO PARTAKE [IN REMEMBRANCE OF HIM]

Good news. The RCC has what it claims as "approved miracles," several samples of Eucharists that supposedly changed into then blood and/or flesh of Jesus.

In the early 1970's, the RCC conducted tests on one such "miracle" Eucharist and found it to be human heart tissue. How amazing!(Who was murdered?)

With such amazing information, the RCC can now conduct 21st century forensic tests -- such as DNA -- to prove to the world that these Eucharists are not complete frauds, but that the DNA from different samples match, along with other miraculous findings that we could only expect from Jesus' DNA.

RCC -- put up or shut up on these supposed "approved" miracles.

No "one true" church would ever need cheap, sleazy tricks to sway the faithful ..... right?

Thanks for your reply. I am not sure what your view means for atheists, cultural Christians and those ignorant of the faith?
