Really! Which False prophet started the church of Christ?
How is it unbiblical to follow the scriptures? I'm assuming when you say unbiblical you can present scriptures to justify that statement..... So.... How is it unbiblical to follow the scriptures and scriptures only?
Point out some examples of your worship, church government, practiced baptism etc. from the first century church we read about in scripture.
Also, why don't you point out some things the first century church did that the church of Christ does not do or vice versa.
You're just an apostate morphed out version we were warned about in the NT.- If not the church of Catholics, who is?
It's a good start to ask questions. Way to go!

It is not so much un-Biblical as it is illogical.
.
In saying you follow "the Bible alone," you assume a fact which, by stating "Bible alone," you have formally rejected.
.
It is contradiction in terms.

Yawn...Protestants bearing false witness seems almost to be part of the faith of one. Time Magazine sums it this piece well.

PREJUDICE.
THE FAKE OATH.
Passed from hand to hand under tables, slipped under doors, sent anonymously through the mails, an old and notorious piece of anti-Catholic propaganda turned up last week in scattered cities and towns, mostly in the South. Part of a spreading anti-Catholic campaign against Presidential Candidate John F. Kennedy, the document purports to be the oath of the Knights of Columbus, a 1-million member-fraternal order of Roman Catholic men (Kennedy is a member). Sample quote from one version of the fake oath: "I do further promise and declare that I will, when opportunity presents, wage relentless war, secretly and openly, against all heretics, Protestants, and Masons, as I am directed to do, to extirpate them from the face of the whole earth." This fraud, like the bogus Protocols of the Elders of Zion used against the Jews, has been spread by bigots for almost half a century. It first turned up in a congressional election in 1912 in a lunatic-fringe tract mailed from Aurora, Mo. The following year, a congressional committee investigating unfair election practices condemned the oath as a fabrication. At that time, the false oath was read into the Congressional Record, a fact that present day bigots cite to lend it an air of authenticity. Ku Klux Klanners circulated it against Al Smith in 1928. It turned up again last spring during the West Virginia primary battle between Jack Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey. A scattering of clergymen have recently quoted it in sermons, and it has been printed in newsletters of Southern Baptist Churches in Rainelle, W. Va.; Phoenix, Ariz.; Greensboro, N.C.; and Knoxville, Tenn. One clergyman of the Nazarene Baptist Church, W. L. King, who quoted the oath and refused to retract when its fraud was pointed out to him, last week was charged with criminal libel in the magistrate's court at West View, Pa. Full text of the actual "obligation" taken by members of the Knights of Columbus' top Fourth Degree: I swear to support the Constitution of the United States. I pledge myself, as a Catholic citizen and a Knight of Columbus, fully to enlighten myself upon my duties as a citizen and conscientiously perform them entirely in the interest of my country, regardless of all personal consequences. I pledge myself to do all in my power to preserve the integrity and purity of the ballot and to promote respect for law and order. I promise to practice my religion consistently and faithfully, and to so conduct myself in public affairs and in the exercise of public virtue as to reflect nothing but credit upon our Holy Church, to the end that She may flourish and our country prosper to the greater honor and glory of God.(Time magazine, August 29, 1960, p.15)

We/as Catholics--ALL know Our Lord and HE knows us, as we accept Him each day as personal Savior, have a personal relationship with Him, receiving His TRUE body and TRUE blood "each day" at daily Mass in the Eucharist, listen to, hear, read and follow His word (every day) worshiping , HIM---- again--each day at Daily Mass,---- in the FULLNESS of the FAITH and the FULLNESS of the TRUTH--in and through His ONE TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church
The ONLY we know about you Confrinting--is that--you can list bible verses, and not much else!!!
And Jesus said, "why do you put a Priest in between our personal relationship?"

"Don't you trust me?" Jesus asks.

LOL...This thread produces some real pieces of art. ;0 Just after saying it seems bearing false witness is part of the protestant faith you re-inforce it. Not worth a response.

That's funny, and largely true.

I recall that you predicted his election. Once again Michael, you were right on target.

And when the new Pope said in his introduction speech -- "Tomorrow I want to go pray to the Madonna" -- I knew the changes had begun, again exactly as you predicted.

Deeply profound point.

e.g. Bible alone says John the Baptist is greater than Jesus.

Matthew 11:11 -- "Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he."

Evidence of corruption, money laundering, child abuse, cover-ups, etc.

Believe me, Anthony and ReginaM. are lurking on this forum everyday.

A certain poster said he was leaving this forum and Anthony/Regina said "so are we". Problem is the poster that said he was leaving, never left, leaving Anthony/Regina out in the cold never to be heard from again.

I didn't respond furhter, because I think your statement has no merit.
But what can one expect from one who is dishonest with theirself and others....and then make up things about someone else and claim it to be true.
Care to try again? Maybe starting off with an apology for being a false witness to others will help?
You are just too much!!!!!

You are too kind!!! What a blessing!!!
Thanks, again, and again, for proving my words to be undeniably truth!!!

You don't even know the definition of "believe".....so you really cannot be expected to know much about anything else....

Clay, honor your new Pope and embrace the love that he called for.
There were many false prophets eons before Martin Luther, so calling him "the Grand Dad of false prophets" is mean.
I'll try and not sound mean.

Say, from what I'm reading about Pope Francis, its going to be tough for you guys to hate this man..

He refused a vehicle perk, driver, house and chef for being ArchBishop of Buenos Aries. Opting instead to take the bus to work, live in a small apartment and cook his own food - which he bought by himself from the local market down the street..

Oh no.......

"The Vatican Revealed to Own Europe’s Largest Gay Sauna"

http://www.edgedallas.com/index.php...

"Cardinal Ivan Dias, the head of the Congregation for Evangelization of Peoples, 76, lives just yards away from the sauna, where gay men meet anonymously for sex (but you knew that)."

"In addition, there are 18 other Vatican apartments on the block, many of which priests call home."

Plus, he never took up arms against the USA in WW2.

Other than being a socialist who has advocated land distribution, free healthcare, etc., I like the guy.

His austere lifestyle (typical Jesuit) is an example that the entire Vatican should follow.

Just because he's the anti-Christ is no reason to dislike the man :o)
