Talking to someone here is like talking to them anonymously on the street. But here, we can revisit them and try to reason with them, and when they respond we can find out more about their belief system and compare it to the Inspired Scriptures. There's nothing cowardly about it at all.

It took me about 5 hrs to convert an anti Catholic co -worker to Catholicism. The funny thing is, I didn't even try. I just answered his questions. I gave him helpful links. I showed him where his minister was being untruthful in his false accusations about Catholicism.
My co worker is not an ignorant man.
He came back the next day and said he's going to be received into the Catholic Church.
The Holy Spirit did it. Once someone quits playing stupid and inventing conspiracy scenarios to help their ideology (this has no place in Christianity)
The Holy Spirit is allowed to work into your lives.
Right now, you guys shut the door on truth with your own arrogance.

well, your co-worker didn't read his Bible, now did he? or did he even look at church history?

go to this website and type in "him who sent me" - you will get a number of verses:

Seems to me this is a good verse for Catholics, who should seek to please the FATHER and not man. Jesus sought to please only the Father in Heaven and not some "self appointed" Father here on earth.

-
We don't know if God got bored one day.
-
I don't think he created us to watch us suffer. I do believe there is a reason he has allowed this to go on for so long. I think the faith part is in our allowing ourselves to trust him.

You see me *hiding* behind ... "call no man father"?
no.
I see me standing up and *obeying* a direct command of Jesus.
It was a literal command..

The term "father" denotes authority, eminence, superiority, a right to command, and a claim to particular respect. In is in that sense it is used here. In this sense it belongs eminently to God, and it is not right to give it to men.

But....the Catholics say, "What does God know??? As a matter of fact, calling the pope Holy Father, is acknowledging his authority, eminence, his superiority, his right to command, and a claim to particular respect."

Likewise the Catholic Church is either 100% truth in teachings or completely a lie.
1. They can trace their roots directly to the Apostles. They have the early Church writings to prove it.
2. Christ promised the gates of hell wouldn't prevail and He would be with His Church until the end.
3. They established the Bible and authoritatively decided on the authenticity of the canon in the 4th century. The Bible is in effect, theirs to safeguard and interpret. You would have no knowledge of a NT if it were not for them.
Therefore, the Holy Spirit either guided them for a moment or two. Then left for 1200 yrs until one o you guys were revealed the true meaning Christianity. Or, Christ was serious when He promised to be with His Church until the end of time.

The Jewish Bolsheviks in Russia & the Jewish Russian Mafia are about as violent as it gets.

Jew Lazar Kaganovich created the Holodomor genocide in Ukraine with 3 - 12 million dead Ukrainians.

Jew Genrikh Yaogda created the Gulag system with 4 - 18 million enslaved & imprisoned with millions dying!

It is good to assemble ourselves together for the hearing of Gods Word but then search the scriptures to see if it be so.

First you mean, pretend certain things exist prior to searching the scriptures.(sola scripture)
Then, convince yourself that the Church who gave us the scriptures are the 'Whore of Babylon'.
Then pretend the early Church fathers got it 'all wrong' when the Apostles verbally explained the faith to them. THEN, pretend Jesus Christ (although He never commanded a Bible be written for Christianity) waited until the printing press was established in the 15th century to bring His real Ministry to the world!
Then voila! You're are set and can open up your own storefront church and declare yourself a minister and authority on sacred scripture!

Don't forget that during those years the Catholic church KEPT THE BIBLE from the people. The church MURDERED *heretics* for the SIN of owning a Bible.

Hebrews 9:6 These preparations having thus been made, the priests go regularly into the first section, performing their ritual duties, 7 but into the second only the high priest goes, and he but once a year, and not without taking blood, which he offers for himself and for the unintentional sins of the people.
***The Epistle to the Hebrews speaks of
the high priesthood of Jesus by comparing his death and entry into heaven with the actions of the Jewish high priest who went into the Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle once a year with a blood offering for himself and for the sins of his people.
**Check this out Clay:
Hebrews 10:12 But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, 13 waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. 14 For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.

Ah it all makes sense now. You brought up 'Priests' a couple hrs ago, knowing you were going to bash me over the head with scripture verses showing why Christ didn't want Priests (like the Church apparently wrongfully assumed from the first century on).
Sorry Chuck. I care what was actually taught by the Apostles. I'm not interested in what some guy has to say about it, 2,000 yr later. There is more to the faith then what your un authoritative opinion is. The NT isn't verse chapter verse/ word for word instructions.
What did you spend all weekend consulting with your elders on some traps? Lol

*Bash* you *over the head* with scripture? What cruel and inhumane treatment! You'll live. I can imagine what you would be saying if it were PRIESTS who quoted scripture.

But then we know they won't stoop to that ploy, as they can't compete with someone who has actually READ the Bible.

CLAY: "There is more to the faith then what your un authoritative opinion is."
-
Clay, there IS more to the Catholic Faith. But it was ALL ADDED YEARS AFTER Christ and The Apostle's deaths. It was ADDED by MERE MEN. The Holy Spirit didn't "add" all that to the Catholic Faith. MEN did. MEN added it because they didn't understand what Christianity is. They had to *figure out* things that Christ never talked about. Holy Spirit didn't give that to them.

It was *finished* when Jesus SAID it was finished.

No Chuck, I honestly don't know what your agenda
Is with this verse.
Are you saying there is no need for a Priesthood?
Are you saying the Apostles didn't need to ordain Bishops and Priest to carry on the tradition of the Eucharist??
That eventually, their writings would be printed so you guys can figure everything out yourselves?
-
-
No, Clay.
Their "writings would be printed" so eventually we could know the TRUTH rather than the LIE.
This is what Christ meant when he said "The gates of hell will not prevail." He meant that the Word of God would ALWAYS be preserved so mankind would KNOW what the TRUTH is.
I can't imagine what the world would be like if the Bible had NOT been preserved.

I don't blame you. I wouldn't do what Jesus instructs us to do in the Bible either.
I suggest the Jefferson Bible. The values of a great man, minus the mysticism, often used to hide the values maybe.

Jefferson Bible? The one where he removed a huge chunk of the written word?
-
Do you think he was a good *editor*? or do you think he was rather arrogant for believing he had the right re-write what had already been published?
-
Jefferson was a slave owner and in fact, fathered children with his slave girl named Sally Hemings. I would think that would really mess with a president's head KNOWING your own children are born into slavery!? Jefferson wrote lofty documents speaking about freedom, and yet he owned SLAVES!

Owning slaves is not Christian! And, his documents on FREEDOM denied WOMEN the right to vote. Jefferson wasn't about freedom. He was about WHITE MALE SUPERIORITY and separating themselves from British rule, even while he denied women and Africans and Native Americans the rights he believed White Male Property owners deserved! AFTER having stolen that property from the Native Americans. Such hypocrisy.

He created Angels, and heavenly beings, why would he need to create animals and humans? I don't know. Why does anyone create anything? A beautiful piece of music, or art. I guess we are God's art. I don't know. I'll have to give some thought to that.

RCC origin...continuated..
For the first 280 years of Christian history, Christianity was banned by the Roman Empire, and Christians were terribly persecuted. This changed after the “conversion” of the Roman Emperor Constantine. Constantine “legalized” Christianity with the Edict of Milan in A.D. 313. Later, in A.D. 325, Constantine called the Council of Nicea in an attempt to unify Christianity. Constantine envisioned Christianity as a religion that could unite the Roman Empire, which at that time was beginning to fragment and divide. While this may have seemed to be a positive development for the Christian church, the results were anything but positive. Just as Constantine refused to fully embrace the Christian faith, but continued many of his pagan beliefs and practices, so the Christian church that Constantine promoted was a mixture of true Christianity and Roman paganism.
been saying this all along,it's obvious,what he did and i can't understand why people can't see it? or is it that they are just plain ignoring it because of the fear the church put into people for 2000 yrs?
