First the Pope kisses the Koran. Now another Pope is embracing Atheists.
I am only an Agnostic, but I hope to be loved and embraced by CC followers here ASAP.

I had to laugh at your comment about ending prayer to the noodle monster with "ramen."

LOL

Funny - IMO - the only "love" I've felt, has come from non-Christians.

And now the Catholics are to embrace other beliefs?
- "Hard-line Christians/Catholics" - uh-uh.
- "New Age Christians/Catholics" - uhm - when?
- any "Christian" - I'll believe it when I see it occurring

I find it hard to reconcile they will, because they can't even accept what Jesus taught, yet should accept people for what they personally believe?
- Damn that Pope is making a leap of faith that most Catholics find horrendous or unable to do.

.....that's what you-u-u g-e-e-t-t!!.....when you place men in charge of defining "God".

Why is it that it is always the protestants trying to tell Catholics what they, the Catholics, believe, and always getting it wrong?
There is no foundation

for Catholicism in the scriptures....In the

Old or New Testament....

Peter was a Jew...sent to the Jews... THE Circumcision...

The Apostle Paul wrote...PAUL WAS SENT TO THE GENTILES...

READ IT FOR YOURSELF!

Gal_2:9 And when James,(the brother of Jesus) Cephas/PETER, and John, who seemed to be pillars,

perceived the grace that was given unto me,

they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship;

that we should go unto the heathen/GENTILES

and they unto the circumcision/JEWS.

~~~

Jesus is the Rock of our salvation.. PETER DOES NOT QUALIFY

Psa 95:1 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.

Psa 95:2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

Psa 95:3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

Why is it that Catholics can't accept what others say or believe, all the while never accepting these beliefs?

How can a person choose "correctly" if he or she never had your god's dogma drilled into their heads?
If so, then they can follow the moral compass that is part of everyone's conscience.
God will deal with them with fairness I am sure.

So Jesus had no soul/spirit while in Mary's womb?
If Jesus had no soul/spirit while in Mary's womb, then when did His spirit unite with His flesh?
Or are you saying Jesus never had a soul/spirit?
Confusing, huh?

Christianity will always be confused, until they realize that what is used is incomplete.

this argument from you catholics was settled some time ago on this forum. Egypt WAS NEVER considered "Wilderness" rather it always was spiritually considered "sin". why don't you act like you have some intelligence instead of asking stupid and ignorant questions?

Wrong!! it is you that only believes a portion of what Jesus teaches! I have confronted you about it more than once and you, as usual, you "ignore the words of Jesus Christ HIMSELF" that confirms (in the bible and throughout centuries of TRUE APOSTOLIC CHURCH HISTORY, regarding what the Catholic Church has believed and taught for over 2000 years. Lets (again) begin with Matthew 16:13-21 regarding Jesus Christs (OWN SPOKEN WORDS) regarding His One True (Universal-Catholic) Church. Then how about John 6:47-59 regarding the Eucharist (AGAIN --JESUS' OWN SPOKEN WORDS)(JESUS' own TRUE body and TRUE blood) "for unless you eat my body (which is real food) and drink my blood (which is real drink) YOU CANNOT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. The One (and only one) TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church,(historically and biblically proven) has, is and will continue to proclaim, preach and acknowledge the TRUE Gospel and the TRUE EXPRESSED WORDS of Jesus Christ as they have for over 2000 years!!!!
Hojo - "Wrong!! it is you that only believes a portion of what Jesus teaches!"
- No I don't. If you say that I do, please post all of the teachings that I accept by Jesus.

Hojo: "I have confronted you about it more than once and you, as usual, you "ignore the words of Jesus Christ HIMSELF"
- No you haven't. All you have done is rant and rave how Jesus only taught what is in the NT - gospels ONLY ATTRIBUTED to individuals - whereas there is nothing by 'Jesus Christ HIMSELF".

You are lining a sheltered repetitive life. No wonder you won't believe in all of Jesus - you are trapped by men.

I understand that dismay. It makes you angry at almost everyone. I sympathize with you for your disenchantment.

No worries - astonishment is right around the corner - waiting for you to acknowledge it.

If I may use June as only example - she would be an example of how religion has caused someone to live a sheltered life for 70 years. And in the end - realize it was all :just in her mind"....as it is with everyone.

Breaking out in honesty is quite hard to do with so-called "Christians" - and you are no different.

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.
<quoted text>
How? Do you have a secret decoder ring that I didn't receive?
How do you quantify certain fallible men as part of this, when they are indeed fallible? Unless you think "God" inspired only a handful of men many centuries ago and has not inspired others since?
Please post the citation that shows "God" has revealed to us, "absolute truth".
- I'm not sure you really understand the discussion, because "God", as per your Bible, hasn't been seen by anyone since - supposedly the OT.
<quoted text>
True. It is relative to our subjective minds.
BTW - that would be Self - not "God".
One could then say - Self is absolute.
<quoted text>
Yes - Self.
<quoted text>
Yes - Self again.
You do understand that anything you or anyone does - is by a choice made in their mind. Not "God".
If you employ "God" into this, then you have taken away free will.
I highly doubt "God" has any control over my actions. If "He" does, then It is unknown to me and everyone else. This same action applies to everyone.
Just to keep you honest - Please post the citation that shows "God" has revealed to us, "absolute truth".
Why you are at it, as you seem to have a first-hand account of "God" that no one else has, answer me this - because no one else has....
- Where has "God" stated that a specific religion is heresy?
So if something is absolutely true, then there is a such thing as absolute truth. Something unchanging and existing outside of mankinds minds. Something that exists outside of the universe since it is not tangible and is not an object in said universe.

No, I didn't get that from a secret decoder ring. And no, I don't have some special exclusive knowledge of God. I have read many books by folks much more enlightened than I and have learned from them.

Your other questions, I believe I have already answered.

For one nothing. You have already showed me you are brainwashed And yes if you break one you have broke them all But you can not keep them all because it would be against the governments laws. And go to jail You keep justifying what is right in your mind.as I said you can not keep ten laws much less 613 how much pork did you eat today when was the last time you kept the sabbath of his feast days. that's what i thought....

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
Why you mad bro? By your logic, we can say that Jesus (divine) did not suffer for our sins on the cross. By your logic, it was Jesus (flesh) that suffered for us. Gee, I wonder why his whole body and soul were resurrected? When did they come together to become body(flesh) and soul(divine)? It makes no sense that you believe that there are 3 persons in one God and then in the next breath say that Jesus' flesh was separate from His divinity.

This was your post yesterday to me Clay:
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
Just because you experience the Holy Spirit at your alter call does not give you the keys (pun intended) to be an authority on sacred scripture. I'm sorry you thought it did. But I'm sure you're smart enough to look around and see the 40,000 different sects who thought the same thing.

BTW, there are two prominent Evangelical Born Again communities in the Twin Cities who teach different 'dogma' on the nature of God. More on that later.
