Here's my question for you; Why do you think you have the authority to declare the old guy in your congregation who died last month and who was "saved" is in heaven (even though you have no clue about his personal life) and then turn around and mock the Catholic Church for declaring someone in heaven?
Fyi I think he is in heaven..by His actions he reflected Our Lord.He was humble and tried to make up for things in the past that were less than what they should have been.

Do you think God is waiting on the Church to let him in??

We believe saved people go to heaven .. That is what Jesus said .

It is ultimately up to Him to decide ..Nit us and not the Church

It's not the fact if the pope is in Heaven or not, it the fact that it's total crap that he is interceding. If he is, give me proof besides the cardinals and bishops decided he was...thanks.

*I rest my case Tony...bishops/cardinals said pope john is interceding from Heaven...you bought it. They can't prove it but you bought it. Why..because you're like the Branch Davidians. They too believed what their leader tells them.

Rom 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
Rom 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Rom 10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

confrinting:

I agree with Paul, but not with your conclusions.

I can say, that I accepted Jesus Christ, when I heard him say to me, "Peace, peace I give you. Not as the world gives, I give to you."

If someone has the peace given by Jesus Christ, then they have heard His message. They may not understand what it entails in their life in living in this world. And because of this, one is inclined to sin, because of the nature of the flesh, but in repenting of sin, on learns obedience to God.

In learning doctrine, I think it best to have heard His message first, but there is merit in hearing doctrine without understanding it, as it becomes a guide to God's Way.

The Catechism(Teaching) is one such guide. It is not perfect, but a guide nonetheless.

So it is more important to first hear the Message of God.

I think he is too. That's what it means when the Church recognizes a saint.

What's hypocritical to me is people like Chuck who have no problem declaring a fellow congregant in heaven as soon as they die, but bashes the Catholic Church for doing it.

And what were the revelations Hojo?
Further appearances were reported to have taken place on the thirteenth day of the month in June and July. In these, the woman asked the children to do penance and Acts of Reparation as well as making personal sacrifices to save sinners. The children subsequently wore tight cords around their waists to cause themselves pain, performed self-flagellation using stinging nettles, abstained from drinking water on hot days, and performed other works of penance.
The second secret included Mary's instructions on how to save souls from hell and convert the world to the Christian faith, also revealed by LĂșcia in her Third Memoir:
"I have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart.
These are lies from Satan Hojo.

I just read an interesting "truth", I would like to share with you, and others on her, and I am paraphrasing a bit here. Perhaps you might meditate on it....

"The Immaculate Law of God is God's Love."

It comes from the Psalms, "The law of the Lord is perfect, it revives the soul."

Proof? The nuns prayed for another dying nun to Bl. John Paul asking for his intercession before God and she was cured of an incurable disease. That's crap to you.

And when your fellow pew warmer intercedes by praying for a sick congregant, and they get better, that's not crap.

Very good. Man's problem is that we want to accept His forgiveness, but haven't learned to show forth His love to others.

The thing is that He showed how His love works when He forgave us.

.....YOU ATTEMPT TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT
THE SUBJECT IS
( personally I do not believe the Roman Catholics ever compiled it)
WHY DID THE ROMAN CATHOLICS CLAIM TO COMPILE THE BIBLE AND
THEN SET ABOUT TO DISCLAIM IT?
WHY DO THEY NEED A SCRIPTURE (from the Bible)TO GIVE
CREDITABLE/validate...
TO the books ...THAT THE SUPPOSEDLY CANONIZED THEMSELVES?
confrinting:

Canonization is a process. And the Bible became a "closed" book in the process.

The other side of this issue is the deist's argument, that God created the world, and stepped back, and did not "interfere" with it.

I think the Bible is closed, although there are some factions that desire to eliminate books within it.

I do not think God created the world and stepped away from it.

Ms. Rose, I am inclined to think, from reading your posts, that you are a gentle soul. And I thank God for the grace of kindness that He has bestowed upon you. AS to your post above, think of it this way: Lets say a soldier at war lays down his life to save not only our freedoms but also the lives of his entire fellow soldiers. He comes home less an arm or a leg or both. Everyone knows he is a hero, yet they (the USA) commend him with the medals to show that he will eternally be recognized as a hero. That is exactly what the Church does with saints. Though everyone recognizes that the person merits the opportunity to be received into the Kingdom of Heaven, the Church is just outwardly, in a human sense, commending them with the title of "Saint in heaven".

Peace be with you sweet child of God!

I very much agree with you. The more we meditate on the simple things in Bible, the more illuminating they become in our lives. Thank you for your insight.

God is the Healer.

I tend to think it takes time, and experience in our lives to become like simple children in Christ. We need time to understand our experiences, and they are all connected by God's Love.

Catholics don't even know the definition of "saint"...

SAINT

A holy person, a friend of God, either on earth or in heaven, De 33:2

It is sometimes used of the pious Israelites, as Ps 16:3; 34:9

Nothing is more frequent in Paul than the name of saints given to all Christians, Ro 1:7; 8:27; 12:13; 15:25,31; 16:2 In this acceptation it continued during the early ages of Christianity; nor was it applied to individuals declared to be saints by any other act of the church than admission to its membership, till various corruptions had depraved the primitive principles.

The church of Rome assumes the power of making saints; that is, of announcing certain departed spirits as objects of worship, from whom the faithful may solicit favors-a notion worthy of the dark ages in which it originated.

To you, yes. But it's not.

And you do not have the knowledge base to distinguish what is fiction and what is not.

Now go read a good, non-Christian scholar whose written something intended for a general audience.

In that regard, as before, I'd recommend Ehrman.

He studied under Metzger at Princeton (I think Metzger was a believer, though I don't understand how that could be.) Ehrman teaches along with Tabor at UNC, one of the finest schools in the country in this field. And Ehrman is perhaps the best there is -- today.

I did not say that. Your confusion has reached a critical point.
I meant that Christ is not confined by your church heretic interpretation of the Bible where you claim that Mary is the mother of god and/or her spouse.
Mary is a descendant of Adam and Eve therefore a sinner just as you are.
