People brag Jesus up so much, that I can't see him being involved in something so trying on the nerves.

This rock meaning Peter's confession that He was the Christ.
Jesus sure built an horrific church on Peter if the RCC is understood to be it.
It would be wise for you to get out of that corrupt and abominable mess you are in.
Horrific Church? Like how bad? Oh yeah, we murdered millions and tortured billions and every single Priest is a child molester; the Pope is an anti Christ and we worship statues.
Now I gotta sleep. After I count Protestant denominations and worship my statue of Mary.

Goodnight Tiger. I pray some good can come out of our heated exchange tonight. You're obviously passionate about your faith..

You are the authority to say this to me?
Really? Who are you?
Have I not pointed out the many verses which say dead people sleep?
BUT YOU HAVE NO ANSWER SO YOU MAKE A SNIDE ATTACK.
TYPICAL CATHOLIC.
You're right, I did make a few snide remarks today. That's not how I want to convey the Catholic faith. Sorry if I insulted you, Tiger.

Its my understanding that 'sleep' is a figure of speech and not literally speaking. I know the word is mentioned quite a bit in scripture, but the concept of literally sleeping, was never taught in Christianity to my knowledge. I believe the Church teaches its Purgatory. But I honestly never really dove into it.

Do you think Christianity began in 400 AD, when the Roman Catholic Church established the NT Canon?
Or do you believe Christianity began shortly after the Bible was published on September 30th, 1452 - and all you fundies were then able to read Revelation on your own!!
Or was Christianity finally started in the 20th century upon the emergence of the born again movement and the 'Alter Calls'?

Soul sleep is unbiblical, Marge.
I thought we went through this with you a few years ago. Do you remember when I had to practically beg your so-called "brothers" and "sisters" to straighten you out? They finally came through and told you to cut it out. Now you're at it again.
Stop letting yourself be tossed about with every wind of doctrine. Just because someone posts something anti-Catholic and tickles your ears, doesn't mean you should align yourself with them. I know that's what all of you do, but it's obvious and stupid. Be different from the other fundies, have some integrity.
**********
Have some integrity...good advice. Since none of us have been 'over there', we should refrain from quarreling about mysteries that have not been made manifest to us.
I Thes. 4:15 For this we say to you BY THE WORD OF THE LORD, that we which are alive, and remain, shall not prevent them WHICH ARE ASLEEP....16...AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST...
It is not 'obvious'...
KayMarie
Hey Kay Marie I know I should just stick to Scripture but we both know they can't 'see' it so sometimes I use my own words to try to explain it to them and sometimes use the wrong word.

Anyway you can correct me anytime:)

Oh don't make me feel that I have to explain the atrocities the RCC have committed through history.
You do seem to exaggerate and attribute words and ideas to me.

I have a list of the ten worst popes.

Number 15 is ...
Pope Alexander VI 1492-1503.

Pope Alexander VI had a special place in Hell reserved for him in the circle of lust. On Halloween night of 1501, he was said to have organized and participated in the “worst orgy ever in the Vatican”.

While sex with promiscuous women while unwed and sworn to celibacy and a life devoted to God may be forgivable in certain circles, his other most awful sexual conduct would be frowned upon by just about any member of our currently civilized society.

Alexander VI also was known to fornicate regularly with his two sisters and his daughter. For the crime of incest, Alexander VI is surely damned to the core and quite prodigiously ‘evil’.

Try reading Acts 10. Cornelius sent for Peter as God had instructed. While up on a roof Peter denies God three more times regarding what is clean and what is unclean. In fact Peter considered the Gentiles to be unclean. Do you remember? But to his credit Peter finally goes with the men Cornelius sent to bring him.

Cly, I have asked you repeatedly that when you quote me to post my entire post. Again you did not post the entire post and thereafter went about making statements that make no sense.

Your response, "'Peter was a vessel; Paul was a vessel; Mary the Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ, was just a vessel'" End quote.
Thank you. You are proficient at stating the obvious. Let me ask, was Peter, Paul or Mary anything other than a vessel used by God to further His kingdom? Hey, that was a group at one time...Peter, Paul and Mary.

How do you manage to undo this authority that Jesus Christ Himself gave the Rock, Peter?
what happens if Peter used the keys to appoint Clement as Bishop;Linus as Bishop and passed the keys unto them? Does Christ say,'wait a second, I didn't mean you could do THAT with the keys!!
Several verses later in Matthew Jesus call Peter Satan. Is Peter Satan? Matthew 16:23, "But he turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me. For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man."

So is Peter Satan or not? Jesus called him Satan. Do you believe Jesus or not?

Eight and nine are ...

8. Pope Sergius III 904-911
In seven short years as Pope, Sergius III was bad the minute he was made Pope. He took the Papacy through murder and while in office, lived quite contently unmarried with a concubine by the name of Marozia. While his political affiliates may have enjoyed his murderous tendencies for the sake of gaining control of the papacy, Sergius’s concubine may have rivalled him in true potential for evil. Marozia personally assassinated Pope Leo VI who followed Sergius just seventeen short years after Sergius left the Throne of Peter in order to claim the throne for Sergius’ and her son, John XI. Wicked.

9. Pope Damasus I 366-384
Individuals who lived to see Damasus’s rule saw a bitter day: women and children were bought and sold as sex slaves to increase funding for the church at Damasus’s design. Those who opposed the tyrannical rule of Damasus would be tortured and literally burned alive after their lands were seized and used for church designated purposes. Worse still is that the women forced into prostitution were not always simple subjects of Rome, but female priests and nuns themselves. So much for serving in humility before God…
While some light could be said to come out of this, there were forty-four bishops who abhorred the acts of Pope Damasus I and had found him guilty of adultery on many counts. Unfortunately, the office of the Pope was a strong central figurehead and Pope Damasus I weaselled his way through being convicted of the crimes that he was known to commit on a regular basis. After the charges had passed, all forty-four bishops were murdered at the order of Damasus I. What could be done? Nothing. Damasus I was also the first among Popes to instill the concept that the papacy was a supreme office of God, using the Petrine text in the Holy book of Matthew to support his claims. Nothing like divine intervention eh? Among the populous these heinous crimes went without retribution. For his adulterous behavior, the public commonly referred to him as “Auriscalpius Matronarum” which means “ladies’ ear scratcher” in Latin. It’s a shame they didn’t name him “constituent back-stabber”.

The Priest likely gave up like most of us do, when we confront a 9/11 conspiracy fanatic.
Nothing we tell them will change their mind. We can show them letters from the terrorist to their mothers (hypothetically)- explaining that they are going to be a martyr by flying a plane into the building on this exact date at this exact time, and they will not believe it. Why? Because people thrive off secret conspiracy crap.
You won't ever admit you're wrong and that you added to Johns Prophecy by teaching that he's talking about the Roman Catholic Church. We showed you his words in bold plain writing, what will happen to you for doing that, and you STILL will not accept it.
As long as you can control sacred scriptures with your mind, nobody can tell you otherwise!
"You are Peter, and ON THIS ROCK"
Nope, thats not what he meant.
"This is my Body"
Nope he didnt mean literally
"If I am delayed, no how to behave in the household of God, which is the Church of the living God, the Pillar and Bulwark of truth"
Nope, the Church isnt the pillar and bulwark of truth, the Bible is.
Sola Scripture is convenient for those of you who wish to design your own christianity. You simply can reject and accept anything you see fit. Such mentality could only have come from the Devil..
Catholics are forever trying to sell to the world, the idea that Christ, a Jew, and His 12 Jewish apostles, during the time that Christ was on earth, established the Roman Catholic Church, that everyone knows, that even as of today, is for Gentiles and not Jews!!!!

Quote: After excerpts from the second volume of the pope’s book on Jesus made the rounds last week, featuring his rejection of the idea that “the Jews” killed Christ, the full text adds another point with important implications for Christian/Jewish relations -- in effect, that Christianity “must not concern herself with the conversion of the Jews.”

The comment comes in Benedict XVI’s book Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week, the full text of which was released today.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Since the man of God is "thoroughly furnished" by all scripture, inspired of God, unto good works....what else is necessary????!!!! How can he be more "thoroughly furnished"????!!!!

Quote: The keys to the kingdom of heaven:

The image of the keys is probably drawn from Is 22:15–25 where Eliakim, who succeeds Shebnah as master of the palace, is given “the key of the house of David,” which he authoritatively “opens” and “shuts”

As someone who is catholic and was raised in the faith, I find this truly offensive that the Pope would make a statement like this. It is making me seriously consider leaving the church. As long as popele believe in God and the holy trinity, why does it matter whether they believe as catholics, methodists, lutherans, etc? I think Benedict has gone too far with this statement and I do believe it is going to hurt the catholic church in the long run.
Didn't Benedict retire?
