Then stop making claims such as (paraphrased)- that inspiration has stopped with the last of the Apostles.

You do realize this statement suggests that you believe that no other person has the ability to express "God" in written form, just because they are not an Apostle.

You have limited "God" and the HS - because OTHER MEN TOLD YOU THIS.

The Church
- faithful followers of the teachings of Jesus
- no organization or ruling organization - it is available to all followers
You and all of Christianity has failed, because you don't believe in all of Jesus, your fist qualifier, yet not complete or "Full".
You put too much faith in men.
How can fallible men define an infallible "God"?
- Your last answwer leans on the HS, yet you agree that the HS still inspires men, but not enough for them to write more details about "God".
Why do you limit "God" and the HS?
Do yo honestly think "God" has been defined?
I believe in "all of Jesus" which has been shown to us. No way is that all there is to Him. Fallible men can define aspects and traits of an infallible God because we still have a reflection of God's Image in us.

And yes, the HS has inspired people to write more details about God. Of course. I gave you a link to a great example of this.

You are projecting.

I do not know how many times I've stated, I believe in ALL OF WHAT JESUS TAUGHT.

Turning and twisting what I've stated to fit your own mind, is wrong, deceitful and just plain "un-Christain".

I guess you keep forgetting that Christianity limited what Jesus taught, not me.

Take your unfounded discourse elsewhere - you really shouldn't make up false things about others.

It's a good idea for the 2000 year old apostolic faith to be taught from childhood. Do you just hand your kids a bible and say "have at it!"?
My oldest is mentally handicap and my youngest son has acknowledged he is a lost sinner, repented, and has received Christ by faith and later was baptized. Reads his bible and goes to youth group at church.

On like your parents with you, I had nothing to do with my son's salvation.

I believe reading about Jesus in the Bible is good. And it is also helpful to learn about Jesus the Savior from those who are qualified to teach about Him, rather than rely solely on my own intellect as I peruse the Bible to know Him. If all you need is a Bible, then why have a preacher or go to church?
Why indeed. Apparently chuck is an infallible interpreter of the bible and acts as a combination of pope and magisterium when teaching his children from (gasp!) childhood....

This organization has a finite teaching - with no room to add or remove.
You've stopped. Just be honest and admit it.
If you accept other teachings, then guess what, you aren't Catholic, but only in your own mind.
In fact, you would be considered a heretic if you utilize non-canonical works.
Just ask Regina and Dan.
The works of the Early Church Fathers/Saints (for example) aren't canonical.
He would not be considered a heretic for reading them, lol.
The writings he linked to are private revelation and he's perfectly at liberty to read and consider them.

So you don't have a preacher teaching "bible", he/she just says "be good to each other, pass the coffee and donuts"

What is the image of "God"?

Where did this image of "God" originate? With whom?

Please list your sources.

It's not in the canon, so Catholicism doesn't accept it to be a legitimate gospel. You'll have to provide information or sources that agrees with your opinion that it was inspired and useful, whereas the Gospel of Thomas is not.
- my source is from one of teh 13 Apostles, whereas yours is not.
- my source, as your logic holds, is of one of the Apostles, yet it is considered heresy by your team.

Which of the above is more valid and useful than the other? Yours? I don't think so.

The Catholic faith has been defined - through their Catechism.
If you don't believe this, then you really are ignorant of Catholicism.
What "infinite" teachings does Catholicism have?
How did they come to exist as "infinite", since you think they are not finite? Please porvide the citation or specific statement by "God".
Perhaps the word "inexhaustible" should be used instead of "infinite" when refering to Catholic teachings.
God is infinite.
The Church teaches about God.
Therefore the Church teachings about God are inexhaustible.

I said *public* revelation (revelation meant for the public at large, meaning revelation for everyone universally) stopped when last Apostle died.

Private revelation by the HS happens all the time, and yes, people do have the ability to express God in written form, and yes, even if they are not an Apostle.
People express God through art as well.
Do you have a favorite piece of art?

Did you know that the dude who first proposed the Big Bang Theory, Georges Lemaitre, was a priest, astronomer and professor of physics at the Catholic University of Louvain?

Interesting, huh?
After Galileo, the Catholic Church found some reality. They are a great benefactor of science today. So yes, interesting.

But even the pro-science Catholic church doesn't talk about the science of God, just faith in God.

You know why of course. Sadly, many don't.

John 10:34-36
New International Version (NIV)

34 Jesus answered them,“Is it not written in your Law,‘I have said you are “gods”’[a]? 35 If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be set aside— 36 what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said,‘I am God’s Son’?

Jesus specifically states he is not "God", but we are all "sons of God".

Yep - I agree.

If the catholic church had all the true answers then everyone would be catholic. Less than 18% of the world population are baptized catholics and less than half of those don't even practice their faith.

BUSTED!

I never said he couldn't read them. He has every right to believe as he chooses, it still doesn't change the fact that inspiration is "not dead" with others. Nor does it resolve that others can be inspired and write about "God".

But you and Catholicism dismiss many non-canonical INSPIRED documents as heresy.

Twisting my point around to fit whatever means you want it to, will not change what you continually dismiss - "that the non-canonical texts are inspired". Please stop doing so.
