What broken relations?... I know for a fact that you are "talking out of the side of your distorted mouth" and furthermore, since this is just "editorial (hyped-up" phony news, you can bet that the rest of your comments, can and will fit neatly "into the trash can"!

Oh, I am sure that the liberal mainstream media as well as the bible only Protestants, atheists and agnostics on this forum are all "licking their chops" and will "make up, exaggerate or blow out of proportion AND AND ALL "trumped up" stories, in order to keep their "anti-catholic hostility, vengeance and hatred (heated up), against Jesus Christ and His One True Catholic Church..

It must have been the fifth ballot that the holy spirit actually got involved with the voting process, otherwise wouldn't all the cardinals be voting exactly the same way during the first ballot if the holy spirit inspires all of them the same?
Hey, its a vast improvement from the 5th C. when a conclave member was beaten in order to make sure his choice was "the correct one".

"Once the theological debate got underway, things went from bad to worse. When one side of the debate didn’t feel that things were going their way, a group of monks, accompanied by a gang of militia, proceeded to take over the debate by force. Threatening everyone with their life, they took a blank piece of paper and made the bishops all sign it. They planned to later simply put what they wanted on the blank section. After they got the signatures, they turned to their leading opponent, Flavian, and cried out,“Slaughter him!” Immediately a band of monks proceeded to beat the bishop so badly that he died a few days later."

Jesus Christ the Lord opened up the door to heaven (fact is He is the door)...

The Roman Catholic Church does not have the authority to shut that door

on any one..

Only by a man's own personal decision ....can he shut the door upon himself..by personally rejecting Jesus Christ as His personal Lord and Savior.

No other entity upon earth can make his decision for Him...or separate from the Love of God...

The Roman Catholic Church cannot separate any one from God's Love

neither can they have the authority EXCOMMUNICATE keep any one out of Heaven..

NO MATTER WHAT THEY CLAIM....

THE BIBLE SAYS

Rom 8:33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.

Rom 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Rom 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Rom 8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Rom 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Rom 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Rom 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

You already know the answer Saban. I know you do, because at least 4 or 5 people corrected you on it. you're choosing to ignore it and go your own route.
To be honest, I could care less if people choose to embrace sola scripture. I have a problem when they preach Christianity based only on that, and imply things about the Catholic faith using ONLY the Bible.
the Scriptures claim is that the Scriptures alone hold the "fullness of the means of salvation" because they teach the truth regarding Jesus (Romans 1:16; II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:19-21; 3:15-16).

Where within the scriptures is the church of Catholics or anyone heading up the church in the place of Christ, is given the authority to do the interpretation of scripture for us?

Where is that at?

Who has given them this authority?

Or, did they just TAKE that authority upon themselves?

You and I BOTH know the answer.

You've intercepted the church from Christ. Probably Satan's greatest work!

Who gives "the authority to translate sacred Christian writings"???? Do you have scriptural authority for your answer or just tradition of men that wanted the POWER?

Hey Rob, the five solo's might help you understand;

1 Sola scriptura ("by Scripture alone")
2 Sola fide ("by faith alone")
3 Sola gratia ("by grace alone")
4 Solus Christus or Solo Christo ("Christ alone" or "through Christ alone")
5 Soli Deo gloria ("glory to God alone")

First and foremost, none of those verses you provide say scripture alone. None of them.
Is scripture useful for teaching and correction? Yes.
Does Paul say its the ONLY thing or do you say it?

Also, Paul was speaking of the OT books.

So, how do you know the OT is to be inspired?

Attacking the messenger is the typical refute here by Catholics isn't it.

Paul instructed the Christians in Ephesus to “be not foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is”(Ephesians 5:17). The apostle told those saints that by reading his words they could understand those matters pertaining to Christ (Ephesians 3:3-4).

Is this not true today? We need the RCC to be the middle-man??

Additionally, the fact that the New Testament epistles were written to ordinary Christians, as Wayne Jackson pointed out, is true.

Is the following verse not speaking to me or to Wayne Jackson?

Every scripture is inspired of God, and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness. That the man of God may be complete, furnished completely unto every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

There is no scriptural evidence in the opinion you gave, but quite a bit of scriptural evidence in Wayne Jackson's writing... Think about it.

Frankly I don't understand what you're asking.

You want me to prove Matthew is scripture?

Do you not believe it is? If you don't, perhaps the method to be taken is for you to prove it is not.

Saban, the Church came first. It functioned for almost 25 yrs before one single line of the NT was written. It functioned for another 400 yrs before anything was officially labeled canon.
You claim to be a part of this 'church of Christ' group that was supposedly started by Jesus..

What on Earth did you guys do with no Bible for so long?

Well, you go ahead and chance it with people like Wayne Jackson.

His version of the Bible is a complete fantasy. Its a man made scenario and extremely hypocritical.

If catholics only knew what REALLY goes on at these conclaves. Are you paying attention CLAY and HOJO?

Today, I would believe once all the Cardinals are seated in the Sistine chapel and the doors locked and barred one cardinal would shout out. Who wants to order from MacDonalds? An hour later up through an unknown trap door comes a MacDonalds buffet with 115 McHappy meals.

Could I be wrong?
