The god of the Jews so loved the world he sent his only son to earth to be murdered because the god couldn't figure out any other way to communicate Christian LOVE to his followers.

You are idiots and choose to BE so!

Read my statement again; "I don't know a single Catholic who has never received the blood of Christ."
Tell me what you think this means.
Anyway you want to slice it....it does not change the facts:

If I have told you once, I have told you a dozen times. The first, most basic rule, in the art of lying, is not to tell a lie that can be easily proven as such...

You first make a statement about the blood of Christ...you then deny having said such...I show you your own words that proves you said what I say you said...and for that I am an idiot!!!!?????

But for that ONE word "salvation" there would be no Christians on earth.

And THAT is the truth.

They were the same ...except of course the apocryphal books.
Which even the Jews did no acknowledge as pure scripture.
But the ones I looked at read the same ...weird huh??
The Jews also do not acknowledge Christ. That's why those books are not in the Jewish canon, they point to Jesus as the Messiah and to Christian practices (e.g., praying for the dead). That's also why protestants use that same OT, although why they would want to disavow Christ as the Messiah is odd. The Church who compiled the canon of Scripture uses the Septuagint.

Christian ... "As long as he gives me salvation, I'm able and quite willing to worship a Jew."

"Would you worship a Jew otherwise?"

"HELL NO ... but he's got what I want."

"Isn't that a shallow attitude?"

"Of course ... but I must worship Jesus the Jew, or I can't be saved. It's as simple as THAT!"

You keep on trying to protect the image of an institution that was based on crime and lies from its beginnings.

Jews used many variations of scriptures and to this day fight about who are the real Jews ARE "concerning the correct religion."

All religion is about right-fighting ... who has the best chance of being blessed with eternal bliss in an afterlife ... blah, blah, blah.

If you for one moment thought he wasn't going to give you salvation, would you worship a Jew???

I suggest you be honest with your self ... if not with me.

God wants us to sing the psalms. The psalm addresses the angels. The angels are in heaven. Your dead dog is not in heaven.
You first say: We're addressing the angels.

Now you say: The psalm addresses the angels.

Which shows you trying to extract your foot from your mouth...

I see Psalms speaking of angels.......but none that shows Psalms speaking to angels....where are you reading?????

Who didn't see them as authentic? Caiaphas?

The official Jewish canon came after the crucifixion. Luthers and your KJV Bibles were decided by the very same men who killed Our Lord.

Read the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Qumran Jews had Tobit and Sirach in their collection, just like the Catholic and Orthodox Churches do.

You guys on not have enough Bible to even be Sola Scripture.

What would Jesus Christ say to all the Christianities out there today?
Its amazing. Our Lord was crucified; His Apostles killed as well, to bring the faith to the world, only to have some idiots with their highlighted Bibles undoing what they died for!
The Bible is a Catholic Book. The Protesters want to claim it as their own, but it ain't.
Right now, someone is doing a Bible study in the basement of Maplewood Community Center,(MN) trying to figure out the latest revelation of the faith to them via the Holy Spirit. They come to a different Christianity than OldJG. Even though OldG did the same thing (via the Holy Spirit). That's madness. That perverts the sacred scriptures.
The Bible is NOT a catholic book...Your church began in 1054 remember....

The early Christian church debated the status of the Apocrypha / Deuterocanonicals, but few early Christians believed they belonged in the canon of Scripture. The New Testament quotes from the Old Testament hundreds of times, but nowhere quotes or alludes to any of the Apocryphal / Deuterocanonical books. Further, there are many proven errors and contradictions in the Apocrypha / Deuterocanonicals. Here are a few websites that demonstrate these errors:

That is not entirely true. The Jews had no set Canon nor a notion of one. Christians were quoting from those books to bolster support that Jesus is the Christ. Furthermore many references to those books can be seen in the writings in the NT. The Septuigant had those books included and it was what the Apostles used. The Ethiopian Jews still accept those books today. It was at the council of Jamnia in AD 90 that certain Jews decided what would be included. Before that time they were accepted as scripture. Furthermore Christ celebrated Hunukah found in Maccabees and its still celbrated today. It is not accurate to say Jews as in All do not accept them. Finally as Regina said they did also reject Jesus. Today some Protestants are rejecting Paul as scripture. Protestants often condemn each other to hell each of you proclaiming your own personal gospel. Luthers new Doctrine was never taught before him. His bible was missing books which protestants now accept for 200 years. He rejected James calling it an epistle of straw. He rejected revelation, he rejected Jude. I really dont see how any Protestant can randomly decide which books should be included or not since your authority is your personal interpretation of scripture alone and the bible never had an index of which books are scripture and that it it alone and the personal interpretation of each individual is the truth. The Church is the ground and pillar of the truth. The Apostles taught and appointed others. Paul tells Timothy not to lay hands on or ordain just anyone to quickly. One Protestants in here said that meant to beat them up. WOW! No Paul says to remember what you have learned and from whom you have learned it. Scripture says to obey those who are over and do not give them grief. Protestants disregard this. The Apostles put people out. You say all believers are the church. False teachers and apostles cannot exist in your fancy free world where each individual picks their truth and proclaims their authority to do so often passing out judgment cards to others proclaiming your truth is higher.
