That's the ticket! Now you're catching on. Historically, all Christians were Catholic until the reformation.

Here, this should help:
http://www.catholicscomehome.org/who-started -...

But do invest in a good history book as well.........JETHRO:this is a lie, the only christains that were catholics came from rome,the home of the pagan/christian church.if all christians were catholics,why did they keep feeding them to the lions in the arena,or for target pratice? why did they forcefully drag them away and beat the church ibto them? thousands of christians killed because they did not want to follow the church,including it aleged leader of "the church" jesus,he was cruxified by the same church we're expected to believe was of his creation,lmao,the church/herod ordered the killing of male babies to stop his coming,(which is not really true),people had to be starved,whipped,tortured,burne d at the stake,and just out right killed for no reason,all this sanctioned by god and his church...knowing all this how can anyone make such a rediculous statement that all christians are catholics,need the hip boots when regina slings the sheep dip around.

I didn't misread what you said. Bub says the scriptures you sometimes preach on, were on his mind the whole day. That's called 'thinking alike' and not divine guidance from the Holy Spirit.
The reason I say this is because the Holy Spirit wouldn't direct you to preach something different than the first Christians. Plus, you are not in unison with the other pastor down the street. That's not guidance from the Holy Spirit. The Apostles were together in one fold, they didn't preach opposite of each other.
You and Bub think alike. Just like the same things are on the mind of me and my buddies all day.(usually its fishing)
You really don't know who God is do you Clay or the power of the Holy Spirit.
Do you know why Judas wasn't forgiven, think about it.
Peter denied Jesus, Thomas doubt Jesus, Judas betrayed him.
Peter and Thomas asked for forgiveness. Judas didn't why did he believe Jesus wouldn't forgive him also.
With all the sins we humans commit against God and man,[were Judas's sins worse then ours??] yet God in all His mercy and love forgives This sinner {ME].
Every soul is precious to God Clay.

John 6:37

King James Version (KJV)

37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

Jesus knew Judas wouldn't come to Him yes He could have force him, but God wants us to go to Him willingly not by force.
Judas misunderstand Jesus he had Judas was one thing in mind, and Jesus had another purpose, that is the way it is with many people.
We say we love Jesus but want it done the way we want thinking we know best.
Judas in all his aguish of see Jesus who I believe he loved, hung on the cross was to much, and he hung himself instead of asking Jesus for forgiveness.
He really didn't know Jesus because Judas had his own agenda going on, he missed the truth spoken by Jesus and never learned the truth.
Would Jesus have forgiven Judas, yes I believe Jesus would have.

James 4

King James Version (KJV)

4 From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?

2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts

Michael says......Interesting that catholics claim their religious faith and love of God is the MOST important entity in their lives, yet today less than 1 in 4, 25% of american catholics attend mandatory sunday mass, and fewer than 1% thats right 1%! of roman catholics attend daily mass that is offered in every city in america..........and I thought catholics religious belief, and faith in God were Job 1! Its obvious most catholics are not truthful of what they say.
Catholic HIPOCRICY!
Catholics here paint a much more benign vision of Hell than when I was a kid, so I'm guessing that's the updated Vatican line too.

Less fire and brimstone. Less fear. So fewer go through the motions maybe?

Deep inside, I think most humans are in touch with reality and harbor a suspicion that much, if not all of their religious dogma is imaginary.

Otherwise, wouldn't there be about a 90% DAILY church attendance.

They won't admit that sensible theology would require that to follow Jesus they would have to be perfected Jews ... NOT perfected Christians.

By indicating that a Jew became a traitor to Judaism to become Catholic ... they couldn't be more disrespectful if they tried.

Q. Is masturbation a mortal sin? If it is, why?

Masturbation is the deliberate stimulation of the sex organ in order to derive sexual pleasure. As such, it is an act of recreation rather than re-creation and is ordered toward self rather than toward God.

When people own bibles, they take from the words in the bibles whatever aligns to their own choices of belief.

That is why there are approximately 38,000 denominations of Christianity.

Arrogance is a very busy task-master.

From the book,“A History of Christianity,” edited by Clyde L. Manschreck,(volume 2) comes the following…

In one of our American communities, a congregation called itself The Church of God. They could not agree among themselves and having split asunder, the split called itself, The True Church of God. They, in turn divided and the new group called itself The Only True Church of God.

(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.
Two questions....

1... Why does it bother you if others who disagree with your beliefs can attain the same happiness in afterlife?

You seem to go for the more angry and vengeful God -- one who "lovingly" creates, while knowing all the time that over 95% of its own creation is to be punished for all eternity. There is only one way I can see that making sense to anyone.

2... Do you feel angry and vengeful sometimes?

History says maybe they have.

With ghettos and the wearing of insignias, Hitler was following a historical Christian precedent set by a previous Pope. Martin Luther was an early Hitler favorite too. For his first 10 or more years in power, Hitler used major Christian denominations and they used him.

There were few complaints and last I heard, the CC is still raking in the money from their old Hitler pact.

who="Michael"...... Christianity doesn't come from Jesus and a big bang. It comes from the accumulation of legends, story tellers, and theologies by people who believed in a Jesus.
.....The origin of those ideas wasn't Jesus. The origin were the myths, legends, philosophies, prejudices, literature, superstitions, and primitive cosmology of ancient western cultures that lived 1,000 years before the story tellers made up the Jesus story.
.....read and learn about the beliefs that came long before Jesus. Its all part of our human past.

**********

Michael...at first you were upset with the 'church' that hurt you, but more and more you are casting doubt upon God Himself. Do you not realize that the devil labors to counterfeit all that is good?

When I found Jesus (or He found me, and invited me to follow Him) I didn't read about Him in a book, nor did my society convince me that I should believe this way. When I was put on crutches (four or five months the doctor said), and one week later I danced off of them, never to see them again, it was a result of touching Him. I've had many personal experiences, and I've known many other people who have experienced Him. No way could some twisted form of religion have done such things for us.

Quit fighting Him, and 'somewhere' you will find Him...

He also said that Jesus was *not* like us (and he did not mean in sin). Yes, he is redefining Christian doctrine. I know how much it hurts you to disagree with another anti-Catholic, but you are either a Christian or you're not. If you're going to apply your personal opinion to Christian teaching, making a few tweaks here and there, then you are not a Christian. There's no in-between. Take a stand for Christ or join the ranks of the unbelievers. It matters that much, Kay.

So you claim to have the exclusive handle on Christian doctrine

Your ungodly religious society always claims to have all the answers...

You religious society has prove by it's idolatry and various other ungodly practices and it track record over the centuries...that the handle (IT CLAIMS )it has upon Christianity is nothing more than myths fables AND conjecture..

If I were you I would be ashamed to own any connection to a
group that has spawned all the sins below across the earth.

Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers
,
Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Throughout history Christians have committed every crime in the book and more.

I doubt that they could learn of NEW crimes.

And from what I have studied, those in the religions before Christianity were also as brutal as the Jews, Christians and Muslims of the one-god dogma.

Humans are selfish animals, and religion never has improved human nature.

He does not turn anyone away, regardless of their color or their sin, if they wish to come to Him.

You are attempting to turn this forum into a Tabloid forum

just as the Roman Catholics have attempted to do to Mary the Mother of Jesus by exploiting her sexual activity

They demand that they and those who believe as they believe are the only ones that the one god will accept into his kingdom.

Their selfishness is totally out of control.

It's ironic that when they offer their religious beliefs to others they believe they are offering others LOVE ... when the draft they are laying on the table is the idea that they know the only narrow path to bliss in an afterlife.

They are totally arrogant ... but they don't see it ... and what's more ... they don't WANT to see it.

Christians should NOT be teaching that a faithful Jew would support Christianity and be unfaithful to Judaism.

THAT is tommyrot.

You lie each time you make such foolish statements. You know it ... yet you just keep on lying.

Such is your pride in what you preach.
