Ironic! You who preached we must keep our definitions inviolate, and sacred, and yet you yield to conflating fate and pre-destination.
A bit disingenuous of you.
Sorry to be abrupt.
Romans 8:28,29
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate, to be conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be the firstborn of many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called, them he also justified; and whom he justified, them he glorified.
I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you are saying here. Fate and predestination are synonymous, and your quote from Romans seems to be saying the same thing.

Regardless, the main point is, if the future is knowable, then free will cannot exist. Therefore, if God is omniscient, then there is no free will.

Wholly human ..wholly divine.
And it's a,mystery did sure.
And your reply tells me you dud nit read either of those..
There a 're several.
Legally He is the first born of Joseph ..as his adopted.
Physically He US Mary's son
And yes please don't start the arguments again on that..anyone.
ON if she US his mother
All these genealogy sites,say He is the DIRECT DESCENDANT IF DAVID...through Mary as His MOTHER.
And Joseph as His adopted father.
And they are NOT JUST CATHOLIC ONES.
One actually is,Jewish

**********

Mary and Joseph were both Jewish.

America's laws (until recent ones) have been based on Judeo/Christian
Principles, and at least one state (maybe all of them) says that the "resident father is the legal father". I am familiar with that one.

Joseph was not a legally adoptive father; he was called by God to, "take Mary to wife". Legally, then, by Judeo principles, Joseph was the legal father.

Mary doesn't hear your prayers.
We Pray to the Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus.
We can go directly to God ourselves, Jesus only being our mediator.
A just man is a saved man: his faith counts as righteousness.
Why do Catholic forget about faith; you can not please God without it; without faith you tie the hands of God to move in your life.
'FAITH , THAT GOD THE FATHER HEARS OUR PRAYERS;
FAITH, THAT GOD THE FATHER WANTS US AS HIS CHILDREN TO GO TO HIM AND SIT AND TALK TO HIM.
WE DO IT IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.
WHY WOULD YOU GO TO ANY OTHER, AS A SAVED SINNER, WHEN WE STAND BEFORE GOD AND PRAY, HE SEE THE BLOOD OF JESUS COVERING US; NOT OUR SINFUL FLESH.
IT WAS JESUS' BLOOD NOT MARY'S THAT WASHED MY SINS AWAY.
MARY IS A REDEEMED SINNER. HER SAVIOR IS JESUS, THE RISEN LORD.


As do we pray to God alone. Not that it matters,…..can you explain Rev 8:3??
While your added it explain Rev 5:11-14 too.

The role of our Blessed Mother and other Saints is to bring followers for her son The Christ!

To deny that Saints and others are not with Christ, is to deny Christ’s promised.
To the thief on the cross “today you will be with me in paradise.’

SO YES, SAINTS HEAR OUR PRAYERS!!!!!!!!!

The new 21st century churches can not go around changing rules.
We go by what the Apostles were taught by Jesus himself.

Your interpretation of the Bible does not count! Sorry!

Are you a person that posits from a world-view that the Bible is wrong/outdated, or there is not good/evil, or ??? I ask so that I can better answer your questions.

There are a lot of dynamics in the question, and probably I can't give a short answer. But I will think on it. But in the broad sense evil entered the world, and Adam by choice turned from God.

I suppose it depends on whether one believes Adam was more like a pawn, under the influence of his desires. So in that sense we are all like him....

Sorry for the discontinuity of thought there....

Think, man; THINK! The tree was the tree OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF 'GOOD' AND 'EVIL'.
Adam knew God (good), but he had no knowledge of 'evil': pain, sorrow, thorns, hard labor, death, etc. He quickly felt them (notice how that the knowledge of 'shame' caused him to try to hide from God? Or did you notice how that the 'knowledge of evil' caused them all to start the 'blame game'...even to blaming God?'It was that woman that YOU gave me!').
Adam's body was so perfect that it took 930 years to kill it, but just as God said, Adam died in the same day in which he ate of the tree.(God's 'days' are equal to 1,000 years.)
God gives us choices. What are you doing with yours???
KayMarie
But as I pointed out before, Adam was not immortal to begin with, because God kicked him out of the garden before he could eat from the Tree of Life and become so. So Adam would have died anyway. So eating the fruit had no discernible consequence than highlighting God's injustice in punishing the innocent for the "sins" of others. And what was the "sin"? Knowledge.

PS - Prior to eating from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, presumably Adam could have known neither, and thus could not have known God was good. Nor, for that matter, could Adam have known that disobeying God was "evil".

Peter was not elevated to a position above any of the other apostles..

So in modern times, if we as a nation promote abortion(which I believe is evil, and you may( I hope) agree), aren't there going to be negative consequences for our nation as a whole, and this will move down to all the individuals within the nation?(We just project this problem back in history for the Jews in the O.T.)
I think yes.
Ready for the rumble
One could speculate that this COULD be the case, but one could also look at it in other ways.

Abortion is a way to control population, like the supposed "Great Flood" was, but at a much lesser degree.

The abortion subject is off-topic, and personally, I think it is a bogus example, because many abortions are done with clear indicators of why they should be done. Just because someone doesn't agree with those decisions, are in truth, just opinions, spoken with biased through their religion or personal beliefs.

If there truly was a "God", and those who promote such, then why doesn't this "God" intervene. As it is stated by the so-called "Christian" team members, "He" is omniscient and omnipresent, and all-powerful, yet he can't stop abortions.

So when they die - they must all be dying because they are all part of "His plan" to do so.

Hmmmm....another conundrum.....

Maybe, you can explain how it is that the Church is the true church of Christ. Do you mean to say that Christ established the RCC? Historically and ideologically, I think not. Before Constantine the RCC did not exist. The Early Church did exist and it existed with many bishops, not one was a pope. Jesus' mission was with the Jews, not the Gentiles. The RCC is a man-made institution. Please explain this true church of Christ.
How do you figure,'Before Constantine, the RCC did not exists?
For once, I really wish one of yous would provide something to back this up. Please... I'm on my knees begging the fundies to seek truth and not slander.
I've listened to you guys throw the 'Constantine' accusation my whole life. The last 3 yrs I been pleading with the people on this forum to state why they believe he started the Roman Catholic Church. Is it because you see the title 'Roman' and assume he must of installed that title when Rome legalized Christianity"? Is it because he called a council and asked that order be brought?

Clearly and irrefutably, Catholic teaching is the same before Constantine and after. We have tons of documents from the Church pre 313 AD and post.

You guys are only interested in conspiracy scenarios about the Church that Christ started. I find so many of you deliberately ignoring truth and spreading propaganda and slander about the Roman Catholic Church, yet oddly, referring to yourselves as 'Christians' in the same breath.

Peter original name was Simon or Simeon, Christ

promised to confer the primacy upon him and give

him an Aramic surname,“Kephus,’ or Rock of which

Petros is the Greek and Petrus the Latin

translation.

So Peter is the rock.
Jesus is the foundation.

"Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona ... Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church." (Matt. 16:17-19).

Acts 5: 12 - 16 [PETER’S SHADOW]
12 Now many signs and wonders were done among the people by the hands of the apostles. And they were all together in Solomon's Portico.
13 None of the rest dared join them, but the people held them in high honor.
14 And more than ever believers were added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women,
15 so that they even carried out the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and pallets, that as Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on some of them.
16 The people also gathered from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing the sick and those afflicted with unclean spirits, and they were all healed.

There is ample evidence in the New Testament that Peter was first in authority

among the apostles. Whenever they were named,

Peter headed the list (Matt. 10:1-4, Mark

3:16-19, Luke 6:14-16, Acts 1:13); sometimes the apostles were referred to as "Peter and those who were with him" (Luke 9:32).
Peter was the one who generally spoke for the apostles (Matt. 18:21, Mark 8:29, Luke 12:41, John 6:68-69), and he figured in many of the most dramatic scenes (Matt. 14:28-32, Matt. 17:24-27, Mark 10:23-28).

On Pentecost it was

Peter who first preached to the crowds (Acts

2:14-40), and he worked the first healing in the Church age (Acts 3:6-7).
It is Peter’s faith that will strengthen his brethren (Luke 22:32) and
Peter is given Christ’s flock to shepherd (John 21:17). An angel was sent to announce the resurrection to Peter (Mark 16:7), and the risen

Christ first appeared to Peter (Luke 24:34). He

headed the meeting that elected Matthias to

replace Judas (Acts 1:13-26), and he received the

first converts (Acts 2:41). He inflicted the first punishment (Acts 5:1-11), and excommunicated the first heretic (Acts 8:18-23). He led the first council in Jerusalem (Acts 15), and announced the first dogmatic decision (Acts 15:7-11).
It was to Peter
that the revelation came that Gentiles were to be baptized and accepted as Christians (Acts 10:46-48).

As far as the Jews knew at that time Joseph was his legal father.

I would reprint those whole sites here as I know,you don't click on links But too long and complicated a bit.

If you like Google

Messiah s Toledot

JESUS THE only possible legal messiah

Both explain the differing genealogists In the bible.both are true.

No inconsistency is the point ..And these 2 people marrying was not by any means coincidence Kay..

Adam was not immortal to begin with, because God kicked him out of the garden before he could eat from the Tree of Life and become so.

THE BOOK OF GENESIS CHAPTER 3: VERSES 22-23 BARES OUT THE FACT THAT...IN ORDER FOR ADAM TO LIVE FOREVER HE WOULD HAVE HAD TO CONTINUALLY EAT OF THE TREE OF LIFE...

SAW TO IT THAT HE DIDN'T.

Gen 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:


Gen 3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

Gen 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

IN REVELATION...A TREE OF LIFE IS MENTIONED.

Rev_2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Rev_22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Rev_22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

UNTIL THEN JESUS CHRIST IS OUR SPIRITUAL TREE OF LIFE...

WE INGEST HIM INTO OUR SPIRITS AND ARE BORN AGAIN...OF THE SPIRIT.

-->WHEN WE PERSONALLY ACCEPT THE FACT AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT

Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and

-->the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. <---

AND RECEIVE HIM AS OUR PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOR ...



Joh 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
J
Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Joh 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

18 And I tell you, you are Peter [Greek, Petros—a large piece of rock], and on this rock [Greek, petra—a huge rock like Gibraltar] I will build My church, and the gates of Hades (the powers of the infernal region) shall not overpower it [or be strong to its detriment or hold out against it].

Your interpretation does not count, its the Apostles that were taught by Jesus that’s what counts.

20th century churches are false churches started by mortal men.
Jesus can have but ONE Spouse as it says in Eph 5:23-32.

<quoted text>
THE BOOK OF GENESIS CHAPTER 3: VERSES 22-23 BARES OUT THE FACT THAT...IN ORDER FOR ADAM TO LIVE FOREVER HE WOULD HAVE HAD TO CONTINUALLY EAT OF THE TREE OF LIFE...
SAW TO IT THAT HE DIDN'T.
Gen 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Gen 3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
Gen 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
Nowhere in there did it say that Adam would have had to eat from the tree "continually", but regardless, it does reinforce what I said, namely that Adam wasn't immortal to begin with. Adam was going to die, and he did. Fruit or no fruit.

It's also interesting that God refers to himself in the plural.
