Star C says...and I can't believe it!!...The large number of those converting to Roman Catholicism comes despite the sexual abuse scandal that has rocked the church over the past few years.
MICHAEL says.....you actually NOW believe there was a sexual abuse scandal in your church???
I told you 89 times about these scandals and NOW! for the first time you are admitting it. Thank you Michael!
150,000 new catholics converting!! There are currently 68,000,000 catholics (151,000,000 protestants in america)
150,000 is a .22% increase. Not even 1/4 of 1%..75% or 510,000 catholics in america die each year. of the 68 million catholics.
Can you imagine how fast the catholic church would disappear without family hand me down infant indoctrination? Its obvious with your .22% number catholics die at 3 times that rate.
Another example. 1965 there were 179,000 roman catholic nuns in america. Today less than 57,000. Where have all the deeply religious roman catholic women gone?
I bring factual information, that you should know. Factual information, you don't want to know.
LOL, I didn't write the article.[get with it will ya!]

You are in the minority… lol Atheist 1.6% Agnostic 2.4%

Your numbers are incorrect.

The Roman Catholic Church traces its history to Jesus Christ and the Apostles. Over the course of centuries it developed a highly sophisticated theology and an elaborate organizational structure headed by the papacy, the oldest continuing absolute monarchy in the world.

The number of Roman Catholics in the world (nearly 1.2 billion, 2013) is greater than

that of nearly all other religious traditions. There are more Roman Catholics than

all other Christians combined and more Roman Catholics than all Buddhists or

Hindus. Although there are more Muslims than Roman Catholics, the number of

Roman Catholics is greater than that of the individual traditions of Sh&#299;&#703;ite and Sunni Islam.

The Godhead is true. The Catholic's Trinity is not.

Are you Crazy??????

The Pope is NOT the second person of any trinity.

He is the successor of Peter. Period! Pope Peter appointed by Christ HIMSELF!!

Not intended to start a war....but....

Lust: epithumeo, to set the heart upon, i.e. long for (rightfully or otherwise):--covet, desire, would fain, lust (after).

Does it not depend on what, or who, he lusts for?????

Does not a man desire his wife??
Do we not desire to follow the teaching of the Word of God???
Do we not set our heart upon the love of God???

Mark 14:1 Now the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread were only two days away, and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were scheming to arrest Jesus secretly and kill him.
Acts 12:3 When he saw that this met with approval among the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Festival of Unleavened Bread.
Acts 12:5 So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him.
Yeah how did the term Easter get in there ?
Most Christians know that the Infallible Word of God has the term Easter in there because the Holy Spirit inspired men to put it there!!!!!

On the contrary, Oxbow. Have I not quoted MANY verses?

Why do you continue in your error when there are OVERWHELMING numbers of verses proving sleep after death?
Then a resurrection.

1 Thessalonians 4:

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are <<asleep>>, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which <<sleep>> in Jesus will God bring with him.

15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are <<asleep>>.

16 For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
And many of them that <<sleep>> in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.(Dan. 12:2).

And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.(John 5:29).

I said he was fed the wrong Gospel by a man who had no authority to teach him he was saved simply by believing on Jesus.
I'm sure he thought his suicide wouldn't factor into his salvation.
And please Kay, condemning people to hell (especially Catholics) is your husbands Ministry. He, like Rick Warren, hasn't the authority to determine sacred scriptures. If he is teaching people something contrary to what is Christ's will, then he'll need to answer to it. Its that simple.
God does not decide who goes to hell!!!! The individual, while he lives, makes that determination. God only provides the accommodations!!!

You are "blind" to the TRUTH of Apostolic Church History! The Catholic Church has been "in place" beginning with Jesus Christs 1st Church at Antioch (Acts 2). You have told "many times: that the word Catholic was referred to,m beginning in 060AD and has been referred to "continuously" for over 2000 years. When Jesus (the Word) initiated His One (and only one) True (Universal) Church--there was "only one" Universal (WORD) Church at that time and it was Catholic which means Universal. In the Gospel reading today (the book of John) Jesus "specifically said" that many healings, activities and events that occurred and performed by HIM were not mentioned in this book. So why does the word "Catholic' have to mentioned in the bible, just like the word "trinity" or the Apostles creed or many other words. You, jethro8 are so "stuck" on your anti-catholic (editorialized opinions), that the "reality of Church History" after the book of Revelations, has (again) "blinded you to the TRUTH of reality"! The Bible is not, nor ever has been, the source of ALL TRUTH, in which God chose to transmit HIS infallible and inspired words of TRUTH!! This is "exactly why" it is a waste of time, to deal with bible only historically and biblically "blinded buffoons" such as you!!!
