Yeah-Protestantism was the sand.
The Church is the rock.
No. Jesus is the Rock, and she(he) never knew Him which is why she now belongs to you people, and thank God, we need no malingers such as you people to drag His Holy name thru the mud

He us the Way the truth and the Light
Salvation is through HIM and Him alone
CONFESS with your mouth and believe. HE died for and became sin for
us
Paid our debt in full as only the Unblemished Lamb could
He rose from the dead conqueiing death
All the rituals,and other dogmas are,extran
You guys crack me up.

Here's the 'brain-straining cognitive dissonance' JS speaks of:

When you all "confess with your mouth", that's it, good to go, no question. You're saved.

When the Apostles confessed with the direct authority of Christ, they, on the other hand, had to write it down so you all could check it out yourselves.

Why don't you all hold yourselves to the same standard you'd hold the Apostles to and write down your "confession"?

Divorce doesn't place one in a state of grave, unrepentant sin.
Divorce and remarriage without an annulment precludes you from Communion (in the strict construct of Canon Law).
Plus, the priest would have to KNOW that you're divorced and remarried sans annulment in order for him to even begin to consider withholding of the sacrament. BTW, the communicant situated as described is the one who has primary responsibility to abstain from presenting themselves for Communion, not the priest to withhold it.
Do catholics fast on wednesdays and fridiays before getting communion on sundays?

<quoted text>why people would wish to mock others who believe the Bible is Gods Holy Word is beyond me, this is something that only satan would use against the Christian. It certainly is not Godly in its purpose, that is for sure.
So, it's now "mockery" to ask a minister (GIF) to supply the Biblical basis for Sola Scriptura?

Wow.

OK, then give me ONE Christian Commentator who believes as you do.

Romans 15:4

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.

Those who would learn the things of God, and be assured of them, must know the Holy Scriptures, for they are the Divine revelation.

The age of children is the age to learn; and those who would get true learning, must get it out of the Scriptures.

They must not lie by us neglected, seldom or never looked into.

The Bible is a sure guide to eternal life.

The prophets and apostles did not speak from themselves, but delivered what they received of God, 2Pe 1:21.

It is profitable for all purposes of the Christian life.

It is of use to all, for all need to be taught, corrected, and reproved.

There is something in the Scriptures suitable for every case.

Oh that we may love our Bibles more, and keep closer to them! then shall we find benefit, and at last gain the happiness therein promised by faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the main subject of both Testaments.
We best oppose error by promoting a solid knowledge of the word of truth; and the greatest kindness we can do to children, is to make them early to know the Bible.

I don't believe in a god that favors me, or a devil that favors others. I refuse to fall into your pattern of thought.

Christ Church is Gods People; not catholic, protestant or other wise.
We were call Followers of The Way, Jesus being The Way.
The Bible God's written word!!!! was God breathed and is, was, and will always be the authority on earth that we; "THE TRUE CHURCH OF THE WAY FOLLOW' "JESUS BEING THE ONLY TRUE WAY; TO THE KINFDOM OF GOD."
YOU WILL NOT GET IN ANY OTHER WAY.
PRAYING TO MARY, PRAYING TO DEAD SAINTS, WILL BENEFIT YOU NOTHING YOUR PRAYING TO THIN AIR.
THE ONLY ONE YOU ARE TO PRAY TO IS GOD THE FATHER; IN THE NAME OF JESUS .
John 14
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
I DON'T SEE MARY'S NAME THERE, "JUST SAYING"
Mary's prayers to God can not be refused. I will ask her to pray for me. You choose to not avail yourself of this tremendous blessing. Just you-n-Jesus, right? You said the magic Jesus words, so you've got heaven in the bag.

Anyway, so what you are saying is that there is no way to distinguish with certainty who is a "true believer", who belongs to "the church"? It's just a hodge podge collection from all different religions?
Then why didn't *they* write the NT and compile the Bible?
Why did the Catholic Church write it, and why do you stand there denigrating the CC while clutching the Bible to your chest?

Don't you think you are being a bit inconsistant?

look closely at the 15th verse, we find that Peter [stood up] and began to speak, not a sign of primacy back in those days.as Dan well knows, right Dan. and lets compare that with jesus when He spoke at a synagogue.

luke chapter 4 reads.

And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.
.

notice the difference between our Leader and that of Peter. Peter stands up yet Jesus sat down.

that was how Authority worked in those days.

but you knew that, right Dan? lol

Matthew Henry (GIF's a member of his fan club) apportions Acts 1 as I do. V. 12-14 as one unit, V. 15-26 as one unit.

http://www.christnotes.org/commentary.php...

This dude does likewise:

http://ncbible.org/resources/actscomm01.html

V 12-14 he places at John mark Mother's house. Maybe a nice place, but no room for 120 people.

V 15-26 he indicates Peter speaking to a gathering. Not the collection present in V. 12-14.

This person frames "In those days"

http://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/p...

15. And in those days. The interval of ten days. Were about a hundred and twenty. This was the number of disciples at Jerusalem, but not all who were then disciples.

Is this enough?

Witness of the Scripture
45Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuses you, even Moses, in whom you trust. 46For had you believed Moses, you would have believed me; for he wrote of me. 47But if you believe not his writings, how shall you believe my words?

This young man believed that if he drank the blood of another human, he (as a vampire) would have eternal life.

The judge's words in the case were, ""You hoped for immortality but all you have achieved is the brutal ending of another person's life and the bringing of a life sentence upon yourself."

Well one I am not an author of the bible

Two I accepted Jesus as Lord and was baptized as an adult and in that church they had us write a witness..But that part was not necessary for salvation ..heart and soul connecting to Jesus is necessary

It is only through HIM we are saved ..Nit through any Saint..Nit through the CC or the Baptists..THROUGH..Jesus.

No connotrtions necessary. HE MADE THE SACRIFICE..NO ONE ELSE.

Three actually I am writing here.

The gospels DO NOT say people have to write it down down if they are saved.

We say the scripture was written or where did the CHUFCH get it from to compile it..

V 15 presents Peter standing up to speak in front of a large gathering of people.
