The Church does teach that parts of Revelation can't be safely interpreted.
So why not start at the beginning Clay or doesn't your church know God lays it out in Genesis?

Genesis 37:9 Then he dreamed another dream and told it to his brothers and said,“Behold, I have dreamed another dream. Behold, the sun, the moon, and eleven stars were bowing down to me.”

No disrespect but you whole post is crap.
If there is anyone on this earth that Satan wants to destroy it's Israel..you know Clay, God's people. Israel is called God's wife.
Besides, under the false teaching of sola scripture, I'm as much entitled to my opinion as you. And you can't do anything about it because you're no authority on sacred scripture.
I proved to you that Mary would make as much sense as Israel in Johns prophecy. Dr. Scott Hahn - a Biblical expert beyond you or any other self proclaimed authority - argues that its Mary AND the Catholic Church (the new Israel)
If the Church is the new Israel, then you're in trouble, because you ain't in it, and you go through great trouble to trash it.

Persecuted means to oppress OR harass based on race, religion, gender or belief; to annoy. to persistently bother.
Now Mary, would fall into this category allot more than Israel. What do you think. Does Satan persistently annoy Israel?
Its Catholic belief that Mary is forever in confrontation with Satan.
Another great book is "The Miracle Detective" by ? Sullivan.(another former Atheist writer from Rolling Stone Magazine) He investigated countless purported aspirations. After interviewing the seers in Medjugorji, they explained to Him that wherever Mary goes, Satan follows. This is purported by others who encountered the Virgin throughout the 20th century. Satan hates her, he taunts and harasses her at every stop.
That is a really good book.

So as you read Revelation 12, it makes total sense that the woman is Mary? I doubt it Clay, you're not that stupid. Even if you have doubts you'll still say this, "I'll stick with the only authority out there, and that's the Catholic Church"....and this is called being brainwashed Clay. Just because they've been around for so long doesn't mean they got it right.
Comical...you're not sure but you believe whatever the church says..lolololol...yep you're a catholic!
Dang right I'm going with the Catholic Churchs teaching. You silly ignorant man, they are the ones who put the Book of Revelation into The Bible. You ignore that little fact.
But I suppose as long as you think its ok to teach Johns prophecy as fact, you can have at it.

Dr. Scott Hahn the former protestant now catholic is all of a sudden a bible expert. Was he an expert as a protestant?

I thought you said yesterday that you don't make fun of protestants with our experience with the Holy Spirit during alter calls? Now you say I'm in trouble...you're a liar Clay aren't you?

I guess you believe that Joseph Mary and Jesus flew out of Bethlehem in an airplane and their flight landed in Egypt and Pointius was the Pilate..

Okay - if you believe this.
How?
Wouldn't one be required to know the characteristics first, before they can write about them?
"all men fall short of the glory of God".
This passage, that many so-called "Christians" don't refute, but instead has been used against others who question the validity of "God". Yet, they can never seem to come up with viable refutations.....hmm...
You'll be the first in all of history to be able to discern "God" on your own - or through the help of "God", because so far everything written have been by men who haven't seen "God".
*whispers*
Your ego is beginning to show.
We were created in the image of God. And yes, "all men fall short of the glory of God" since sin and death entered the world. So the image of God was shattered in us. There is something quite wrong with mankind, and simultaneously there is something marvelously right and good. So while we love imperfectly, God loves perfectly. What are the characteristics of love? The fruits of the Holy Spirit:
joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, patience, mildness, faith, modesty, self-control, and chastity.

This is not something I personally made up, by the way.

Okay - explain to me where this "absolute truth" resides or exists.
If it outside an apart from humans, how is it that you are able to access what you think it is?
Still being honest is critical at this stage of the discussion.
Absolute Truth is the unchanging nature of God. We are able to know about it because God has revealed it to us.

Some might say, no, truth is relative. I have my truth and you have your truth, but your truth is not my truth. The question is then, is this absolutely true?
Is it absolutely true that each person has their own truth?

All the world has observed your ONE TRULY APOSTATE RELIGIOUS SOCIETY,

Luk 12:2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.

Luk 12:3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit
3 persons one God.

Mary Gave birth to Jesus the flesh ,but not Jesus who is God.
God is a Spirit, Mary could not have give birth to God the Holy Spirit because a spirit has no flesh.
God used Mary to come to earth in human flesh (Jesus) and walked among us.
Jesus is and was always God, and will also be God.
what is born of the Spirit is spirit
what is born of the flesh is flesh

Clay said, "What a phony. Even us Catholics would never deny that anyone of you born agains experienced the Holy Spirit upon your alter call. After all, God is infinite love and mercy".

**Now compare the one from today with the one from yesterday. Seems like you're a liar Clay. Get over to your priest and confess...lol

How is it God's grace if it's works based?
Grace has been defined as "the love and mercy given to us by God because God desires us to have it, not because of anything we have done to earn it"
CC does not teach that people earn God's grace.
As I posted yesterday, the salvation process begins with the gift of God's grace which convicts the sinner and prompts repentance. The person can choose to accept God's forgiveness and help to become more Christlike or they can reject God.
Jesus made atonement for sin and damnation and provided a perennial source of spiritual strength which aids people in their constant struggle against darkness and spiritual laziness.
At any time, a person can choose to reject God's graces and fall back into the swamp of sin and spiritual decay. Everyday everyone is tempted to do just that. So everyday we need God's graces, not just one time.
How do we receive God's graces? Through the Sacraments primarily, and also through prayer and through studying the word. Doing acts of charity help the individual and the community/world at large become part of the solution to this broken world. Our good deeds help us become better people which weakens sins attraction to us so that we sin less as we go along and are less likely to make the fatal mistake of dying in a state of rejecting God. Make sense?
In the Bible, the Christian life is compared to a race where one must hold fast to the end.

Pathetic!
I think you have a point.

Maybe not for them alone, but they all seem to think god exists for people who think just like them.

In short, every image of god put forth here is an exclusionary god -- the ones not like the believer are excluded from the goodies.

Imagine, the greatest mind ever and it only cares about a certain small class of small-minded humans!

That's absurd. If I were that god, I'd boil them just like the real God was boiled for our sins.

You need to study the Bible.

and cease your profane and vain babblings!

The Bible says

2Ti 2:14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.

2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2Ti 2:16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

(that is if you have one)

By Your rambling.... you prove.... how little you know about

God's word...

Why is it that you cannot stay focused on TRUTH,instead of FABLES .

__________
The truth about Israel is

Zec 12:8 In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.

Zec 12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

Zec 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David,

and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem,

the spirit of grace and of supplications: and

they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and

they shall mourn for him,

as one mourneth for his only son, and

shall be in bitterness for him,

as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

Luk_6:39 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
