That's why you continually see them with dead Jesus' on crosses in their churches and homes--just hanging there, dead. Jesus is not the "Eternal Victim", He is the Eternal Lord of Lords and King of Kings! Jesus told us in His word that His ONE time sacrifice is finished, completed, over. The Lord Jesus Christ is back in heaven where He came from waiting on His enemies to be made His footstool, not hopping up to enter a piece of bread.

... and what Oldjg says about Christianity means???
Nothing. He is just some guy that looked at the scriptures and designed his own version while ignoring the writings of the folks that walked with the Apostles, and taught the faith as they heard it.
Doesn't that alarm you in the least? Or are you too filled with pride to understand anything outside your box??
Folks who walked with the Apostles? What folks? Do you believe those folks or do you believe Jesus? Or do you listen to your cracker when it talks to you? What does the magical cracker tell you?

My Madonna

I haled me a woman from the street
Shameless, but, oh, so fair!
I bade her sit in the model’s seat
And I painted her sitting there.

I hid all trace of her heart unclean;
I painted a babe at her breast;
I painted her as she might have been
If the Worst had been the Best.

She laughed at my picture and went away.
Then came, with a knowing nod,
A connoisseur, and I heard him say;
“‘Tis Mary, the Mother of God.”

So I painted a halo round her head,
And I sold her and took my fee,
And she hangs in the church of Saint Hillaire,
Where you and all may see.

Well the 'cracker' as you wish to call the Body of Christ, doesn't verbally say anything. But it definitely helps us to recognize people like you.

Read Luke 24:13-35 . This 'cracker' is what Christ established to help us understand the scriptures.

Sheep dip.....Your Bible must have this teaching missing:
"And Jesus saw, as he passed on his way, a man who had been blind from his birth. Whereupon his disciples asked him, Master, was this man guilty of sin, or was it his parents, that he should have been born blind? Neither he nor his parents were guilty, Jesus answered; it was so that God’s action might declare itself in him."
Change "blind" with "down syndrome"...
And...it does not change nor make ineffective: For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God..

I'm never 'backed into corner' sir. I always have my fellow Catholics who'll automatically believe the same faith as me. And I trust if I error on my statements, that they'll correct me. That's why we're Catholic. We share the same faith from the Apostles. Its this continuity that no Protestants can claim - as their faith changes from generation to generation.

Anyway, I confronted your false teaching on my own. I was not backed into a corner.
Besides in your world of Sola Scripture, its literally impossible to be backed into a corner. Each 'Pope' dictates their own Christianity. Who are you to say Preston is wrong? Or 7th is wrong??

Limbo? VATICAN CITY | Fri Apr 20, 2007 2:21pm EDT

(Reuters)- The Roman Catholic Church has effectively buried the concept of limbo, the place where centuries of tradition and teaching held that babies who die without baptism went.

You folks buried limbo so why would there be a need for a priest at a moments notice. I mean really, you said the priest can change bread and wine into flesh and blood, right? Well, taking care of this kid should be a snap.

One day you folks will bury the false doctrines of transubstantiation, mary sinless and forever virgin, holy water, rosary beads, salvation by baptism and many others. It is just a matter of time.

Why not attend a church that already has buried those false doctrines and worship God and not a cracker.

The Arrogance of Faith, by Forrest G. Wood

To appreciate fully the meanings of scriptural terms and references, one would need to go back beyond the fourth-century Latin Vulgate edition of the Bible prepared by St. Jerome, or the twenty-seven books on the list that Bishop Athanasius of Alexandria compiled in the year 367, which were to become the New Testament, and study not only ancient Greek and Hebrew texts but northwestern Semitic writings, especially Aramaic, and even some of the lesser-known languages of biblical times such as Akkadian and Ugaritic.

So what you are saying is that the priest(mortal man) has authority over Jesus. And the priest calls Jesus down to what? spill His blood again??? At the Passover supper didn't Jesus say to His apostles,'Do this in remembrance of me'. Remembrance is defined as power as remembering.

From what I studied of history, I believe that bible-users are those seeking to caught harm to others.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>

The Bay Colony, in making sodomy a capital crime, did not follow the English statute but instead adopted the language of Leviticus 20: 13.

Section 8 of the 1641 laws was thus a word-for-word translation of a Hebrew law more than 2,000 years old: "If any man lyeth with mankinde as he lyeth with a woman, both of them have committed
abhomination, they both shall surely be put to death" (Whitmore, 1890, p. 55). Astonishingly, this phraseology was to remain on the books of at least one American state-Connecticut-until some 46
years after the Declaration of Independence.

Some Catholics like to believe this although the books of the Bible (actually a scroll at the time) were long in use as we read in early Christian letters.

Who wrote the NT books and when?

www.datingthenewtestament.com

We do not get the Bible from the RC no matter how many times you repeat this. Just the opposite is true - the RC kept the Bible from everyone. That's what part of the inquisition was about. The NT specifically came from the GREEK ORTHODOX who fled West in 1453 after Islam destroyed Constantinople.

Jesus was reading from the OT Law & Prophets long before the RC claims on the canon.
