nothing in those words indicate a belief in a doctrine of OSAS as you have tried to say that I have posted the likes of that doctrine in the past.
SO I WILL REINTRATE MY WORDS AGAIN TO HELP YOUR FEEBLE AND CARNAL MIND.
IF I STAY SAVED WHEN I DIE, I WILL ENTER INTO HEAVEN, HOWEVER IF MY LIFE IS SIMILIAR TO WHAT YOU LEAD WITH YOUR FILTHY MOUTH, CHANCES ARE POOR AND SLIM AND SLIM JUST LEFT TOWN.
Well, to be such a "know so" sort of feller you sure have alot of "if's" to deal with.

But yet you believe what men have decided.

Hmmmm....a bit of a conundrum is what it sounds like.

A paradox for the uninformed.

What are you going to do about it? Remember, your choice determines your salvation.....'member?

Why don't you believe Jesus?

By the way - I wasn't asking your opinion besides "Paul", I was asking why do you think "Paul" was more enlightened than Jesus.

Again, you've failed to answer honestly.

"I haven't looked at the link yet," - Of course you hadn't. It isn't in the prescribed literary basis of the men you follow. I understand.
"but I've heard about some crazy things in the 'book of Thomas'"
- You have? Like what? Do you always believe everything you hear, without researching it? You know, like your religion?
- if you had, you wouldn't be a "Christian".
<quoted text>
Of course there is.
"In the other four gospels, Jesus is frequently called upon to explain the meanings of parables or the correct procedure for prayer. In Thomas saying 6, his disciples ask him, "Do you want us to fast? How should we pray? Should we give alms? What diet should we observe?" For reasons unknown, Jesus's answer is found in saying 14, wherein he advises against fasting, praying, and the giving of alms (all contrary to Christian practice of the time), although he does take a position similar to that in Mark 7: 18–19 and Matthew 15:11 that what goes into the mouth will not defile a person, but what comes out of the mouth will. This is just one example in Thomas in which the hearer's attention is directed away from objectified judgements of the world to knowing oneself in direct and straighforward manner, which is sometimes called being "as a child" or "a little one" through the unification of dualistic thinking and modes of objectification.(For example, Sayings 22 and 37) To portray the breaking down of the dualistic perspective Jesus uses the image of fire which consumes all.(See Sayings 10 and 82).
The teaching of salvation (i.e., entering the Kingdom of Heaven) that is found in The Gospel of Thomas is neither that of "works" nor of "grace" as the dichotomy is found in the canonical gospels, but what might be called a third way, that of insight. The overriding concern of The Gospel of Thomas is to find the light within in order to be a light unto the world.(See for example, Sayings 24, 26)
In contrast to the Gospel of John, where Jesus is likened to a (divine and beloved) Lord as in ruler, the Thomas gospel portrays Jesus as more the ubiquitous vehicle of spiritual inspiration and enlightenment, as in saying 77:
I am the light that shines over all things. I am everything. From me all came forth, and to me all return. Split a piece of wood, and I am there. Lift a stone, and you will find me there.
In many other respects, the Thomas gospel offers terse yet familiar if not identical accounts of the sayings of Jesus as seen in the synoptic gospels.[67]"

<quoted text>
"all scripture is inspired by God" - I think it has been said a couple of times.
Unless, you don't think men can't determine "God's mind"?
I personally think they CAN'T.
So somewhere along the way man was able to get in the way of the inspired message God intended us to have?

Also, you seem to believe our infinite creator couldn't deliver us a message we could understand. How can you limit Him so?

Your getting awfully close to exceeding Preston on the meter he's had a comfortable lead on for a while.

BTW,
It looked like you sent me to a link full of other links - after checking it more closely - you did.

Clay---just curious!! How often do you go to the Cathedral of St. Paul! I often go there from the West Minneapolis area for prayer intentions, Mass, prayer and confession!.... A number of years back, 3 of my children went to and graduated from St Agnes School, before Providence Academy was built. Always enjoy your comments. You have more patience than I do with these bible only editorializing "fundies"! Would like to meet up sometime! Thanks and Gods Blessing to you and your family during this season of Lent!!

You told Clay to use "common sense" respective to a scriptural matter. What you call "smart alec", I call "reading your post".
You persist here in appealing to my "common sense" instead of simply adhereing to scripture, which you do "all the time", except when I ask you to provide it. Bible verses all day untill I ask for them. Then, you refuse to do it.
Again, for the final time, when is wine actually not wine even when the Bible calls it "wine"?
The passage in question is excerpted below. While you're finding where "wine" actually isn't "wine" when it says it is, I'd also like a citation that tells us that the guests are "already drunk". I can't seem to find that here.
Best of luck.
----------
Jesus Changes Water Into Wine
2 On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3 When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him,“They have no more wine.”
4 “Woman,[a] why do you involve me?” Jesus replied.“My hour has not yet come.”
5 His mother said to the servants,“Do whatever he tells you.”
6 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.[b]
7 Jesus said to the servants,“Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.
8 Then he told them,“Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”
They did so, 9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 10 and said,“Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”
11 What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.
Wow Dan, Dan, Dan, What can I say with all the evidence and Bible scriptures all the testemonies, you are still in denial of what the Gospel of Jesus Christ .
You have accepted the lie as truth, and truth as a lie.
There is not much else to say to you, however I wish you well and pray God will free you from the religeous bondage the catholic church has snagged you in.

Exactly, all 9000 think they are correct and the other 8999 are wrong. Which is why I left Protestantism behind. Everytime I went to a different church depending on the denomination the standards, measures, morality, virtue, dogma, rituals changed.
Each denomination claims theirs is right and the others wrong.

Saint Peter is sitting at the Pearly Gates when two W.Va. Hillbillies and two Tenn.
Hillbillies arrive.
He looked out through the Gates and said, "Wait here, I will be right back."

St. Peter goes over to God's chambers and tells him who is waiting for entrance.

God says to Peter: "How many times do I have to tell you, you can't be racist and
judgmental here.
This is heaven. All are loved. All are brothers.

NOW! Go back and let them in!"

St. Peter goes back to the Gates, looks around, and lets out a heavy sigh.

He returns to God's chambers and says "Well, they're gone."

"Who, the W.Va Hillbillies or the Tenn. Hillbillies?" asked God."

No, The Pearly Gates."

Jesus had the power to save in person. Someone posted several verses that highlighted this point within the past day.
Also, no one could say for certain that the thief had never been baptized. Everyone always assumes he had never been.
We are under the rules established after Jesus' resurrection when the church began at Pentecost. And, Paul informs that there is one baptism. The Eunuch saw much water and after confessing he believed with all his heart that Jesus was the son of God he was baptized (Acts 8:34-39).
What is the one baptism? Why?
The One baptism is the immersion into Christ that all Christians can experience in the Spirit. The baptism for the remission of sins as you can see is practiced in different ways by the many kinds of Christian circles or congregations.But the One baptism which cannot be done with human hands or exercised by human effort is the Baptism into Christ through His Spirit.

Jesus spoke of it when He told the disciples that they had to be willing to drink of the cup he drank from,although He asked if they would be willing to drink from the same cup of His suffering.It is a baptism of His death into the grave which could not keep Him there permanently,HE AROSE!

It is a baptism because we are immersed into His Spirit in baptism,His death.Paul wrote of it,that we are buried with Christ.That is the O N E baptism we all must share in,that which cannot be done by human effort,but only that we submit to in order to follow Christ.We first through baptism follow Him to the grave,where our sins are buried,and no more.

We are resurrected in the hope of our eternal reward with Him in first this life as a believer,but after death we rise at the twinkling of an eye incorruptible. Resurrection is two-fold for us,we are spiritually resurrected from a life of sin in baptism(not a human doing),and we rise again with HIM spiritually to live for Him in this life.But our second resurrection is after we die physically,being His we are later raised by His powerful hand into ETERNAL LIFE, or Life everlasting.

WASHINGTON, DC (AP Feb 20,2013)- Sources close to the White House have learned that
Barack Obama is planning to run for the office of Pope when the College of Cardinals
convenes to elect a successor to ailing Benedict XVI at the end of this month.
Calling on the promise of Equality for All, Obama is said to firmly believe that the
time has come for a non-Catholic to occupy the Vatican's highest office.
Foreseeing a looming citizenship issue he states that he has discovered an Italian
birth certificate that proves he was born in Rome before he was born in Kenya. "That
Hawaiian birth certificate never has been worth what I paid for it anyway", he
noted.
Continuing, he concluded, "And there's no way that a handful of cardinals could be
more expensive to buy than 10 million voters in Michigan."
Further questions should be directed to Obama's Papal Campaign Manager, Abdul Azeem
Khan.

We shall ever be plagued by the garbage of denominationalism. It seems that people forever look at the church as their source of salvation.It is the fault of bad teaching many churches spew on that subject.

The Bible gives the final word on salvation and living the life as a believer,it is from Matthew's gospel to Revelation. The greatest encouragement to anyone seeking Christ is to point them to the Word.Christ was called the Word,and the Bible is the written Scripture of what Christ wanted to convey to all of us.How sad that MANY centuries had to go by with great misinformation,but we have His Word,and it still can give to anyone the truth about Christ,His Father,and what it's all ABOUT!

Like I said, you guys instilled a perception in your minds about the CC.
Now, if I walked into a Pagan church where they were actually worshiping false gods, I would feel uneasy. But that's based on factual data. They worship false gods!
Your uneasy feelings is based on what you THINK we do. Or worse, what you WANT to think we do.
Its a bit childish to look at a beautiful image or statue and think it somehow offends God. I mean, you really really have to submit to a lot of ignorance to subscribe to that
You, as most Catholics, do not study the Bible!!!!

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
