See that you all follow the bishop, even as Jesus Christ does the Father, and the presbytery as you would the apostles; and reverence the deacons, as being the institution of God. Let no man do anything connected with the Church without the bishop. Let that be deemed a proper Eucharist, which is [administered] either by the bishop, or by one to whom he has entrusted it. Wherever the bishop shall appear, there let the multitude [of the people] also be; even as, wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church. It is not lawful without the bishop either to baptize or to celebrate a love-feast; but whatsoever he shall approve of, that is also pleasing to God, so that everything that is done may be secure and valid.

NABre: Jesus’ church means the community that he will gather and that, like a building, will have Peter as its solid foundation. That function of Peter consists in his being witness to Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of the living God.

From your pope approved Bible...you are saying it is a farce...the pope is a dope for approving it!!!!

That's about the size of it, isn't it?

How many do you think would actually start looking at their church's history and beyond all that quagmire of rhetoric to even find any semblance of "truth"?

Have the Attitude of Christ
1Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? 2Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose.
3Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. 4Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.
5You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.
6Though he was God,a
he did not think of equality with God
as something to cling to.
7Instead, he gave up his divine privilegesb;
he took the humble position of a slavec
and was born as a human being.
When he appeared in human form,d
8he humbled himself in obedience to God
and died a criminal’s death on a cross.
He was not God...

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

If you feel comfortable trashing your Catholic Encyclopedia and your pope approved Bible....and in do doing call your pope a dope...be my guest!!!!

NABre...

Rather, he emptied himself, aking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross.

Catholic Encyclopedia quote: Christ..the incarnate Son of God the redeemer of the human race...

Make sure you eat allot of it because when cancer and Alzheimer's And Parkinson's disease Sits In we don't want you to suffer to much....Why do you think he cast demons into swine and drove them off a cliff he knew they Only had one use And that was to clean the earth.....They are not fit for consumption.



The creator knows what you should eat or not eat he made you....

And you know when he says you shall surly die if you do this or that he don't mean right away but he is taking days months and years from your life This goes back to those mean old nasty laws you are so scared of......Did you get my link of the beast colors you know the ones from the roman catholick church seems they left the blue out because they represent the law.

Good news during the thousand year rein you will be taught the law by people like me and you will come to love them As I do...Or guess what you will not be there...he will not allow heaven to become defiled like this earth......

Cool thanks allot.Can I ask you Did you understand the name thing....I will try and explain it.One of the oldest text is the dead sea scrolls wrote in Aramaic.A form of Hebrew.when it comes to the creators name It read YHWH In short Yahweh. First you have to understand this is not a translation In almost every king james If it has A concordance See God And or Yahweh It says that the words lord god baal were added to his name because the divine reverence of his name was believed to be to holy to be spoken so Mortal man changed his name Making him A god.Nothing Makes him A god but man.But People do not get this I think to understand this you must be called and chosen ....Most people have never even heard of this name.And it is in every concordance around. And he even says you will cause them to forget my name any who hope you understand it...

I am thankful that I are not a Catholic!!!!!

(CNN)-– American atheists welcomed Pope Francis’ comments that God redeems nonbelievers, saying that the new pontiff's historic outreach is helping to topple longstanding barriers.

“The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone,” the pope told worshipers at morning Mass on Wednesday.“‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone!”

Atheist: One who disbelieves or denies the existence of God or gods.

The Word of God says: He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Ya. I did/do understand that. All combinations are prefixed and/or suffixed to denote the particular "holding" of that name at any given point. Most folks will think that another "god" when it is actually one and the same base, but in different duty or time.

Well kinda but what i am saying is The creator Is not A god At all he is Yahweh your heavenly father But what better trick for satan to play on the world by having the world worship A god that could be satan her self yes I believe satan is a woman I was once married to her lol......Thanks And May the creator bless you.Even though people may not agree least they can do is stay civil...but you do not see that much...Just like marge she knows i do not eat pork so she try's and hurt me by saying bacon bacon bacon....This Is the difference between righteousness And evil.
