For a "protestant," you sure support the Roman Catholic church's theology.

As to your link, wonderful. Now read my post again.

That is a later version of the Nicene Creed, not the first, or even the second.

The first Creed contained no reference to Mary whatsoever. That was in 325 CE. Mary wasn't even an afterthought then.

The Roman catholic church is an evil institution bent on destroying everything in it's path. It's dark history, since it broke from the REAL Church Started by Jesus and the Apostles {Orthodox}, proves this fact. Patriarch Kyril of Moscow will still not allow a Roman Pope on Russian soil until they quit their murdering of Orthodox Christians in the Ukraine and the Carpathians. Catholics still kill Orthodox in the Carpathians of Ukraine. The True story of Talerhof Catholic concentration camp at link below

The priest Mikhail Shuvar was beaten severely by Catholic Thugs in Ukraine which led to an early death for him from his injuries.

David.....

Ac 1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.

Your "prayer" says "mother of God"!!!!!!????

There is no Scripture that says: Mary the Mother of God.!!!!!!

I cited any apologies I could find. I found the JPII apologies and cited a news article on it.
Stop lying and simply cite the Vatican II apology to protestants that you can't seem to link me to, despite your claims that it's "easily located".
Just "easily locate" it and cite it.
Stop lying? Dan, why so angry?

OK, another quick search...

"it is no longer the Church's goal to try to convert Protestants to Catholicism. Instead, the Church recognized the status of Protestant communities, apologized for contributing to Christian disunity and the mistakes made during the Counter-Reformation"

Here's an idea. Ask your priest this simple question.

"During Vatican 2, did the RCC apologize for contributing to Christian disunity and the mistakes made during the Counter-Reformation."

Then you can call your Priest a lyer too :o)

And continue being willfully uninformed.

PS -- before Dan starts the twist again, that was a quote by an editor for Catholic Insight (COPYRIGHT 2004) correcting misconceptions in a new book about Catholicism.

I hope Dan is able to learn from this Catholic Insight copyrighted material.

I also hope Dan will stop calling me names because that hurts my feelings.

If Dan takes issue with a link, I hope he will do a little more research. Even if one cares not to take the time to find the exact quote from the actual text of Vatican 2, many, many references paraphrasing the text are easily found.

Jesus loves the truth.

Clay, once again you take something simple and confuse it.
Duh!!!!! The word catholic means "universal."
Most Protestants defend the fact that Jesus started a UNIVERSAL church -- not the RCC.
Yes, Methodists use the term "catholic" in their creed -- but they do so with the traditional interpretation of "universal."
No Protestant believes Jesus stated the Roman Catholic church, except maybe your phony protestant friend.
THINK Clay!!! If they acknowledged the RCC as the only true church, then they wouldn't be Protestants would they!
DUH!!!!!!!!!!
Check your facts. They do.

Martin Luther: "we must concede to the Papist, that they have the word of God, we received it from them and without which, we would have no knowledge of it at all"

Pssst free, papist are the RCC.

Also my ex neighbors were Methodist (started by John Calvin) they do not deny the lineage from Pope Benedict to Saint Peter. True Protestants do not ignore basic history 101. although they deny the Papacy itself.

Your evangelical buddies invented something about 'Catholic' with a small c - separate from Roman Catholic. They like to re- write history like they do Christianity.

You become so-called 'born again'. Right?

Once saved always saved. OSAS. Right?

You can never lose that salvation, no matter what you do. Right?

Clay, you keep contradicting yourself.

Start here and work backwards -- they wouldn't be Protestants if they were talking about the RCC as any kind of "only true" church in the eyes of Jesus. They are simply acknowledging an historical reality.

As for your mythical Methodist friends, how do they deny the papacy itself, yet somehow as you claim accept "the lineage from Pope Benedict to Saint Peter?"

Take your meds.

as far as the Last Supper, I disregard any lies taught by your church, concerning the actual Words of Jesus. ANY IDIOT KNOWS THAT HE WAS SPEAKING SPIRITUALLY, WHICH IS WHY YOU ARE A CATHOLIC AND I, ON THE OTHER HAND AM SAVED.

I don't know, Preston. Used to I might have thought that He was speaking spiritually too. But now after your convincing description of those holes opening up in your belly and that water flowing out on your bed from those holes keeping the bed dry, is all giving me doubts...

THE ONLY GUARENTEE IN LIFE IS DEATH!! I DON'T HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS AND NIETHER DO YOU OR ANYONE ELSE! I DON'T PRETEND TO EITHER NOR DO I PRETEND TO BE BETTER THAN YOU!

IT'S EASY TO REVERT BACK TO MY SELFISHNESS AND HARD TO ADMIT MY WRONG DOINGS BUT I DO AND I SEEK FORGIVENESS AND TRY TO CHANGE! I'M NOT PERFECT AND I DON'T BELIEVE ANYONE IS GUARANTEED A SEAT IN HEAVEN BUT I CHOSE TO LIVE RIGHT BC ITS RIGHT NOT BECAUSE I WANT ANYTHING IN RETURN!!!

It sounds like you and clay have it all figured out so why argue. Maybe your right and obviously you believe you are! IT'S not that Christians believe they are guarenteed anything its we have faith in our God and believe in his promises! We also fall short daily but we chose to dust ourselves off, ask for forgiveness, and move forward trying to do better! We are not as perfect as you apparently or your church! But thats ok I'll take them over your type of beliefs any day!

There is nothing humble, selfless, or loving about the statement your pope has made! I hope someday he realizes its not the church thats important. Its how you live, act, and treat others that brings you to salvation! Walking in the footsteps of Christ is not creating tention between his children! It's not about whos better its about walking in Love no matter the situation or obsticle! Remember Jesus said the least will come first not the powerful, not the Pope, not the one with the biggest ego or church! So think what you will and good luck!

Long Live the Pope, the Successor of St Peter Our Rock!

Christ alone is our mediator. Paul clearly points this out in 1 Timothy 2:3-6.

"This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony borne at the proper time."


The Roman Church claims to found itself upon ONE verse in the Bible:

Mt 16:18 "And I say also to you, That you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."

Nowhere does it say there would be a Catholic Church.

Jesus is the rock the church / Christianity is founded upon.

Mk 12:10 "And have you not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:"


Peter's remains are not in Rome since he never went to Rome. In fact his grave has been found in Jerusalem. The End.
