• The Antichrist

The Bible doesn't say the "little horn" is a man, but rather that it would have "eyes like the eyes of a man" (Daniel 7:8). When Paul used the expression, "the man of sin," in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, he was simply referring to the "little horn" with its "eyes like the eyes of a man." Yet that same horn is called a "beast" in Revelation 13:1, and the Bible clearly tells us that a beast represents a great kingdom (Daniel 7:23).

All of this -----"I don't believe" malarkey of yours--- is nothing but "your own personal opinionated uncertainty!!!--It is ALL-MAN MADE by New Age, himself!!!! If you don't believe (quote) "that men have the ability to discern what God can or cannot do" ----then how can you "a self appointed- mans opinion" conclude that yours is the truth!! You, therefore, are putting yourself "above God". The Early Church Fathers,(through the prayful communion --- inspired direction of the Holy Spirit, formed the Canon of Scripture in 382, 393, and 397 AD,took over 350 years to compile, discuss, ponder,translate and prayfully discern the truth of the documents, letters, parchments, manuscripts from the Apostoles.-
Yes!!-----I/We as Catholic believe-ALL what Jesus taught---but not what you Protestants "think HE taught" by using each one of your "self-apppointed" 42,000 contradicting and inconsistent beliefs to arrive at some "hodge-podge" conflicting interpretations of the bible...... The TRUTH of the TRUE interpretation of the bible (has not changed) since 397 AD. Your 42,000 self-appointed (relative truth) popes --have not, nor will ever change the FULLNESS of the TRUTH that has existed for 100's of years in and through Jesus Christ and His One True Catholic Church!!!
Just for your notes:
- I do not place myself above "God" or any deity - known or unknown.
- you DO NOT believe in ALL of what Jesus taught, otherwise, it would be included in the Bible, and other formats that are considered "inspired truth". Stop lying about this, because it only shows your dishonesty more and more.
- I'm not a Protestant, so please stop claiming I am.

You definitely have a problem being honest.

• The Image of the Beast

Some seek to identify the papacy as the beast of Revelation. However, Daniel 7:24 clearly tells us "the fourth beast is the fourth kingdom". Then what was the papacy's Roman empire? The holy roman empire.

Rev 13

sea beast = holy roman empire

Then what is the 'image' of the holy roman empire?

Rev 13

Following the sea beast rose the beast from the earth.

sea beast = old world order

earth beast = new world order

Rev 17

Understand Rev 11, 13 & 17 all go together for this period of history. The earth beast is then found in chapter 17 as the '8th head'.

sea beast = 7th head

earth beast = 8th head

Oh I see, you've figured out Revelation. Nicely done.

I'll also imagine that you have confirmed these with biblical scholars and others, so you can be justified in your explanation.

Please provide citations.

Your comments are just a "typical bible only distortion of the TRUTH"which have absolutely no basis of biblical OR historical truth to back up these "so-called truths"--which in fact, are nothing more than anti-catholic heresy and false teaching. Where do you "fundies" come up with this "ridiculous idea" that every word, every phrase, every sentence MUST be in the bible in order for it to be true. Show us these exact words!! If you want to refer to lying or not telling the truth, start with this and yourself!!!--- Where in the bible (specifically) does it say everything that Jesus taught or said (is in fact) in the bible!! NOWHERE!!! That is because (the oral teachings) of Jesus which by Church tradition, were the traditions--that Paul speaks of in 2 Thess 2:15(the unwritten word) handed down by Jesus(to the Apostles)--- in the Church----which came first).---The (written word) the bible --came over 350 years after the 1st Church in Antioch---Acts 2!! You, New Age, continue to "blow the same old (bible only) smoke" that twists, meanders, turns and eventually (evaporates) into thin air!--

POPE ADMITS 'ACTUALLY IAM THE ANTICHRIST'

At a press conference in Rome this morning, Pope Benedict XVI has officially confessed that persistent rumours that he and most of his predecessors are Antichrist are in fact true.

This shock revelation vindicates centuries of campaigning by evangelical groups in the US and Northern Ireland.

It has emerged that for at least five hundred years successive popes have all been working behind the veil of holiness to further the purposes of Satan on Earth.

When this began is uncertain, though historians agree that it must have been before the time of Alexander II Borgia, whose pathological feasting, gambling and whoring are now seen as classic examples of displacement activity by a man who could not come to terms with his dual role.

Protestants from Cromwell to Ian Paisley have consistently asserted that the Bishop of Rome was the human personification of Satan, but now the present incumbent has finally put his hands up and declared ‘Yup, fair cop, you’ve got me banged to rights.’

Benedict apologised ‘whole-heartedly’ to Catholics across the world for having pretended to be the Vicar of Christ when in fact he consorted nightly with the hell-born spawn of Beelzebub.

However, he insisted he had not known the truth until shortly after his election as Pope in April 2005.

‘I was stunned when the Keeper of the Keys told me this in a private briefing – it certainly isn’t what I came into the priesthood to do.

I thought I was one of the good guys’ said the German-born pontiff and former Hitler Youth member.‘But there’s no way to resign from the post and, well, I assumed if it was OK for the great John Paul II, it must be OK for a humble tiller in the fields of the Lord like me.’

In his early days, Benedict said, he was amused to see even non-Catholic MEPs rise up in anger when the Reverend Ian Paisley denounced him as Antichrist in Strasbourg.

‘I stood there thinking, if only you knew,’ he said.‘But really I was a complete fraud and I’m glad that it’s all out in the open at last.

Life-long celibacy is bad enough, but kissing the anuses of demons every night.......

Of course this will be denied by the RCC followers.
But the Bible is very clear on the papacy in Revelation 13 and in Daniel.

Fundie-mental-ists:

Must roll around on the floor, muttering magic words in order to be saved a/k/a altar call.
----------

Worship the bible.
----------

Believe the bible is the one mediator between God and man.
----------

Are justified by faith in their ability to privately interpret scripture -- alone.
----------

God has entrusted His revelation to every individual.
----------

The individual can interpret that revelation any way he pleases, it's all good.
----------

The bible first, Jesus second.
----------

If Jesus wasn't mentioned in the bible and they were told about Him orally, the way the first Christians were, they would reject Him.
----------

The bible is the sole rule of their faith and the head of each of their 40,000 plus ecclesial communities.
----------

Contrary to the commandments found in said bible, lying is perfectly acceptable, even encouraged, especially when it's about the church founded by Christ - The Catholic Church.
----------

Fundie-mental-ists are generally inbred to the hilt. Is it any wonder they’ve rendered Christianity totally unrecognizable during the few short years since they’ve existed?

CATHOLIC CHURCH AND ITS EMBODIMENT OF PAGAN IDOL WORSHIP: BABYLON

1) The Pope's attire is modelled after the attire of babylonian priests of the god dagon ((dag - fish, on - sun.)

“The two-horned mitre, which the Pope wears, when he sits on the high altar at Rome and receives the adoration of the Cardinals, is the very mitre worn by the priests of Dagon, the fish-god of the Philistines and Babylonians.”
...- The Two Babylons ; Alexander Hislop; p. 215

In their veneration and worship of Dagon, the high priest of paganism would actually put on a garment that had been created from a huge fish!

The head of the fish formed a mitre above that of the old man, while its scaly, fan-like tail fell as a cloak behind, leaving the human limbs and feet exposed.”
- Babylon and Nineveh, Austen Henry Layard, p. 343

2) Nations subdued by Babylon had to kiss the ring and slipper of the Babylonian god-king. The same powers and the same titles are claimed to this day by the Dalai Lama of Buddhism, and the Pope of the catholic church.

3) Adopting december 25th as date of Christ's birthday.
Nimrod, who was born on December 25th, the High Sabbath of Babylon, was the founder of Babylon and the city of Nineveh. In the history of mankind, Nimrod stands unequalled for his symbolism of evil and Satanic practices. He is credited for having founded Freemasonry and for building the legendary Tower of Babel, in defiance of God's will. The story of Nimrod is found in the book of Genesis 10: vs 8-9).


4) Solar disc and cross of Horus.
A priest of horus would wear the cross with all points of the same length.(See picture)

5) In ancient times the representatives of Horus would be carried. As you can see to the left, they had fans which were made out of pecock feathers (hay that looks like a news station logo) the fan is made to look like an eye. This eye is the all seeing eye of Horus/Osiris. To the right, the Papacy has the same ritual....

Give your glory and Praise to God HOJO, the truth you seek is in HIm not the cahtolic church, they are totally blinded by self image, greed and power. Wanting all the glory that belongs to God
Yes!!! In fact every day (without fail) at Daily Mass, with the daily 3 readings) Old Testament, The Epistles and the Gospel of Christ.... In addition, prayer and bible reading from 1-2am Mon-Wed-Fri and 4-5 am Tues-Thurs (ALONE) every day and every week in the Adoration Prayer Chapel---in communion with God Our Father and His Son Jesus...... You see, LTM, as you yourself so "blindly" fails to see----(which as no surprise to me or any Catholic who knows the TRUTH), is that Jesus Christ IS, HAS been and will ALWAYS be the center, the source and the acknowledged presence in the Catholic Church as the origin, the beginning and the end, as well as the purpose and the summit of mine (and every Catholics) Salvation...... Jesus Christs One True Catholic Church, has, is and will (continue to be) as Paul speaks of in I Tim 3:15 as the Church (not the bible alone) is the pillar,pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH. Our Lords One True Catholic Church is manifested in Jesus HIMSELF.
To further enlighten you, my wife has spent every day for the past 16 years in the Adoration Prayer Chapel (growing and being nurtured in her faith in Christ---from 2-4 am --7 days a week (in prayer-fasting-and bible reading. Of course--(none of this) will mean "anything to you LTM) because we are in the FULLNESS OF THE FAITH in Jesus Christs One True Apostolic Catholic Church-(the bride of Christ!-You see, LTM--the fact is that (like most bible only believers)------- "YOU DON'T SEE!"

You refuse to believe that the Holy Spirit could precisely preserve God's Will for Christian's lives without the church of Catholic's approval. All while paying to maintain your memorials to men that are headstones of human history. Your mantras, rituals, ceremonies, catechisms, creeds, manuals and disciplines, none of which are biblical are simply shrines to Apostacy. What is not understood about the church being the people, the Christians, not the power. Remember the Tower of Babel designed to "make a name for ourselves" (Gen. 11:1-9)? Yet, Catholics invest their money in ungodly distractions and worldly profane idolatrous displays such as opulent, ornate cathedrals, basilicas, and shrines. Religious relics that serve as monuments and memorials to men.(Acts 17:24-25, 29) The church is not for men's glory. Your Bishops THRONE on a raised platform highlights the absurdity of the perverse display put on of one that was intended biblically to be a servant of the flock. Forcing a sprinkling or pouring baptism on innocent infants, worshipping Jesus' mother, inventing new positions of influence never biblically hinted to within the framework of the church Jesus died for, having nuns, and the expectation of them and priests both to abstain from their natural tendencies to raise their own families and from enjoying their created body to its fullest as if such would be sinful.
Honestly, I cannot think of any group claiming Bible-based Christianity that has its anchor set further from sound biblically-based theology than the church of Catholics. From what I can tell it has replaced Christ's church's true intention for the worship of itself by its members as it 'acts' the part of the Holy Spirit. The false-teaching my Bible warns me about (2 Cor. 11:13-15, Deut. 4:2, 2 John 1:9, 1 Cor. 4:6, Gal1:8, Col. 2:20-23).

Of the two of us, which used scripture (trying to find God's opinion on the matter)?

Frankly, I don't care who's the most popular. In fact, it may be in my best interest to be least popular. Matt. 7:14

Folks didn't like Jesus too much either. The most 'religious' refused to accept his teachings back then too. In fact, they got rid of him because he didn't go along with the traditions and wasn't quite the fancy, powerful King they expected. He wouldn't have fit in too well with your shrines and costumes.

Your opinion means nothing to me. But, if you could start proving some of your church of Catholic's perverse actions have scriptural authority I could be convinced.

FYI - I'm noticing accuracy is not very important to Catholics but just for your information the statement you made doesn't make sense. I presume you intended to say "Quite frankly, I COULDN'T care less." That is if you intended to say you don't care.

Words mean things.
