<quoted text>The Episcopal Church,which is both catholic and reformed at the same time. holding onto catholicity of the early church all the while seeing this through the enlightenment of the Reformation.
Some of the primary differences of the Episcopal church are rejection of the idea that the Bishop of Rome (Pope) has primary authority over the Church Universal.... look it up yourself if you doubt this and be sure to read the article i posted about the two churches joining forces.
If they deny the authority of the Pope, then they aren't Catholic.

Please don't take my word for it. Ask if they think they are interchangeable with the Roman catholic Church.

Its only CHRISTIAN history. You know that Jews, Muslims, and all others have their religious books of history, but I am sure you don't believe all that they say.
Outside the bible there is no recorded history by anyone in the entire mediteranean during that era of a miracle man named Jesus.
Wouldn't you think of the thousands that were supposedly miraclized there would have been hand me down stories throughout history...nothing!
Nothing in the writing of Pontius Pilate about a Jesus, or crucifixion yet christians claim he was at the scene! Nothing outside the bible about King Herod slaughtering young boys trying to kill Jesus..........nothing. Nothing about virgin birth, miracles, crucifixion. The only logical answer would be that no one recorded anything at that time because these stories had not yet been invented until the gospels were written decades later to ad foder to the create the whole story. St Paul the first early writer never mentions virgin birth, miracles, jesus family....because these stories had not yet been created until the gospels hobbled them together.
The catholic fathers first saw the scriptures about 150 years after Jesus supposedly died. 150 years!!
.... Imagine today that we found out for the first time about the civil war, 150 years after it occured, and no one else recorded anything about it at all.........impossible Dan!
It mentions people and places that existed.

Its history.

Can you cite the "writings of Pilate" that you mentioned? I wasn't aware of their existence.

Try googling "non biblical references to Jesus".
I am not saying there wasn't a man named Jesus, just as St Paul mentions at least 15 men named Jesus in his writings. I am saying outside the bible there is no evidence this man was the son of God. The scriptures only claimed he said he was the son of man.

Only christians claim Jesus was the son of God. Much of the writings of Josephous have been deemed fraudulent. Thats not a good start is it?

Remember Jesus was supposedly born a Jew. Jesus is suppose to be the son of God, yet Jews do not believe in sons of God. Why then would Jesus claim to be the son of God practice his faith as a jew, if jews do not believe in sons of God.

Only christians believe Jesus to be the son of God.........no one else from the entire mediteranean from 4 BCE to 30 AD every mention man/god jesus, or his family, miracles etc.

..........World's Biggest Stock Broker
The Catholic Church, therefore, once all her assets have been put together, is the most formidable stockbroker in the world. The 'Wall Street Journal' said that the Vatican's financial deals in the U.S. alone were so big that very often it sold or bought gold in lots of a million or more dollars at one time.
Therefore, the Vatican was, and still is, the most redoubtable wealth accumulator and property owner in existence. No one knows for certain how much the Catholic Church was, or is worth in terms of dollars and other currencies, not even the pope himself.
That is the true situation borne out by a Vatican official who, when asked to make a guess at the Vatican's wealth today, replied very tellingly, "Only God knows."

Simply cite an independent news or financial source.

My mistake. There are no references by pilate about anything that I know of found to date. I think there was something a few years ago that was found but wasn't legible.

Yes there are people and places mentioned, but even today there is much contraversy about Nazareth being a city/town/village that according many sources never existed in the first century.

Shouldn't christians know more about Jesus? No one knows his date of birth, what he looked like, what he did for a iving, the most important event on the christian calendar the date he died is not recorded.

We know much about Julius Cesaer who lived around 100 BCE. We know his date of birth, his date of death, all what he did throughout his life, from many sources, and we even have coins today that show his facial appearance that were made back in his era.

Jesus we have nothing.

Not recognizing the authority of the Pope renders them not Catholic.

Don't be a sorehead. Just admit you're wrong on this and move on.

It's Anthony's fault you didn't look for the passage before you popped off and that you didn't read it once he supplied it.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
This is "John" - not Jesus.

Do you have a citation from Jesus that supports that he said this, or are you just taking "John's" word for it?

Not only is this not Jesus, we, as of today, still do not know who the "John" truly was....so in essence, it is just second had news that men want you to believe.

Ok..so you know the context I'll help you.

Ok kids, back up your stuff your parents will be here soon.
Yes, correct I know the context, and here John calls Jesus "God", not Jesus calling himself "God".

Fail.

You tell me Anthony about the churches financial holdings.

Are they just breaking even?(lol)

FACT:

The Catholic church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence. She is a greater possessor of material riches than any other single institution, corporation, bank, giant trust, government or state of the whole globe.

check it out......no avro manhattan in this story.

I know you will be dropping a big envelope into the collection basket on sunday. Good boy Anthony! I am surprised the church bank hasn't sold their gold bars by now. Gold is down to $1435 an ounce. A huge drop from just a month ago..........

..........we need more money! they scream.
