The ABRAHAMIC.... physical circumcision of the male
meant that when the sperm was past from the circumcised male into the

The act of generation;.... the seed of the man passed through a divine
covenant made between that man and God .
The female conceiving in the womb, to begin the formation of the
embryo of a special covenanted person
which person would be ...a descendent in the
covenant of Abraham ...Israel
From my perspective it was all religious man-created rumors.

I was not asking about the practice of infant baptism. Your twin Spin Brother Anthony does the samething. Does a 3 month old become a member of Christ without acknowledge of Christ as Savior...without acknowledge Christ as the Son of God...without acknowledge Christ by faith?
That's all I asked.
**********
Performing a physical health measure to an infant (circumcision) is in NO way the same thing as baptism.
Baptism is a mater of the Spirit, and involves a relationship of the person and God.
Doctors might perform that first surgery...but NO PERSON can perform that 'surgery of the heart'. God said, "I" will put a new heart in you."

Baptism is another ridiculous ritual.

The idea that if men did not baptize a baby it would go to purgatory or hell was a teaching of those stupid men who caused needless worry and stress on already stressed-out parents.

THE LORD REBUKE YOU
I already tempted your supposed god several times to strike me dead at that moment if the god lives so that it would prove to all of you one way or the other ... and nothing happened.

That ought to have been a "sign" to you that your religion is a joke.

Why do think your supposed god passed up such a chance to show you that "he" lives???

OH Wait for this story! It ought to be a dandy.

Still diverting, huh?

Since most of the regular Catholics on this forum have avoided the questions, I figured you, an Orthodox - another one of those "true churches" - or in the least, one of the originals - could answer it accurately and correctly, for all of the Catholics, Protestants, and any other posters, including me, on the forum.

But yet you failed again.

Admit it - you are fraud, just like every other so-called "Christian" here.

Yes - a fraud who hides from honesty.

Unlike your husband, who has expressed his honesty when confronted with the "tough questions", you still have a few things to learn. Take some pointers from Herme, it seems he is honest enough to be secure in his faith, whereas you aren't.

Tiger, you SDA people are simply reading the Bible and determining your own religion.
I often say, you guys need to seriously provide Book, Chapter and Verse where Christ says everything about His ministry is spelled out, in less than half of His Apostles written documents.
If you could somehow show that, then i would consider that Christianity indeed got the wrong day for the last 2,000 yrs. And you SDA Bible scholars must have uncovered the secret hidden meanings in the Bible, once it was published in 1452.
Clay, are you saying the Bible is invalid for instruction in righteousness?
The fact that the Bible proclaims a seventh day Sabbath seems to elude you.
Nothing compares to the Bible for authority as God's word.
So many of those who succeeded Christ wrote articles which were in error when compared with scripture.
Much of it came from corrupt popes and bishops.

God will reveal the truth to those who really seek it.
Those who reject God's word as in the scriptures will never find the truth and will wander from precept to precept written by those who were also deceived.

If the Roman Catholic Church were indeed apostolic, it would follow what the apostles practiced, not what was introduced maybe centuries later.

Christ kept the seventh day Sabbath and so should all Christians.

Posting rubbish like a strip tease, or other nonsense is just more false witness. All you did is post inflammator information and from the link you posted it warns of the author who wrote it. The pellegrinnis always go shirtless for their acts. I wonder if it was a gay circus everyywhere else they performed? I guess thats why all the Orthrodox Patriarchs were so fond and had so much respect of of Pope Benedict, none of which you have ever exhibited, but then your knowledge of your so called true church has been shown lacking on several occasions.

In 1990 the Pellegrinis left Italy for a great experience in Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus in the U.S.A, which has exposed them to work in front of 10.000 people per show. At the same time they were requested in the play offs season (NBA) to perform before each game. In 1993 the participated to the Festival of Monte Carlo winning the special jury price “Loews” and were chosen to display at the Gala Bal de la Rose in honor of Princess Caroline. From there they had a 4 year contract in one of the most prestigious places to perform, the famous” Lido de Paris”.

After 4 successful years in Lido de Paris, The Pellegrinis had an incredible decade working in the most known Variete and Dinner shows in Germany, such as Friedrichstadpalast in Berlin, Tiger Palast Variete in Frankfurt, Apollo Variete in Dusseldorf, and every Christmas they displayed In various Palazzo Dinner shows. During the same period in 2002 they were invited to perform at the Warsaw
International Circus Festival where they received, as special guests, a unique price to their career , and in 2003 they were requested to perform at the 15th annual Arnold Schwarznegger Classic Fitness expo (U.S.A.).

In February 2006 they were chosen to perform at the closing ceremony at the Winter Olympic Games in Turin, and that same year in June they participated to the first International Festival in Moscow, where they won the Gold Medal. After winning all these important competitions, in 2008 they had the honor to being invited, for the second time, to the most famous Circus Festival worldwide, the Festival of Monte Carlo where they were the First price winners of the prestigious Golden Clown.

The Pellegrinis also participated in several TV shows such as Star in der Manege in Munich Germany or Le plus grand Cabaret du Monde in Paris France. Moreover they displayed in several Galas for famous presentations like new Caterpillar and new BMW cars. In October 2010 they participated to the German TV show “Das Super Talent”.

In December they had the honor to perform in front of the Pope Benedict XVI at his weekly audience in the Vatican. As in their usual show, they took off their shirts, so they did it also in front of the Pope, and this generated the media from all over the world to talk about these “4 brothers who tore off their shirts in front of the Pope”. Italy, Germany, France, Russia, Australia, England , U.S.A. with Abc news, and even on the Washington Post. The Pellegrini Brothers since September 2009 are successfully working in the Famous Dinner show “Fantissima” in the amusement Park Phantasialand in Brühl- Köln (Germany).

Question: Which is the Sabbath day?

"Answer: Saturday is the Sabbath day.

"Question: Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?"

Answer: We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church in the Council of Laodicea, transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday."- Peter Geiermann, C.S.S.R, The Converts Catechism of Catholic Doctrine Third Edition.

"And where are we told in the Scriptures we are to keep the first day at all?

We are commanded to keep the seventh; but we are nowhere commanded to keep the first day...

The reason why we keep the first day of the week instead of the seventh is for the same reason we observe many other things, not because the Bible, but because the church has enjoined it." -Anglican -Isaac Williams- Plain Sermons on the Catechism.

"The Bible commandment says on the seventh day thou shalt rest.

That is Saturday.

Nowhere in the Bible it is laid down that worship should be done on Sunday."- Episcopal-Philip Carrington, Toronto Daily Star, October 26, 1949.

"There was and is a commandment to keep holy the Sabbath day, but that Sabbath day was not Sunday. It will be said, however and with some show of triumph, that the Sabbath was transferred from seventh to the first day of the week... where can the record of such a transaction be found?

Not in the New Testament absolutely not... of course, I quite well know that Sunday did come into use in early Christian history...

But what a pity it comes branded with the mark of the sun god, ADOPTED AND SANCTIONED BY THE PAPAL APOSTASY, and bequeathed as secret legacy to Protestantism."- Baptist Dr. Edward T. Hiscox,-a paper read before a New York ministers' conference, Nov. 13, 1893, reported in New York Examiner, Nov. 16, 1893.

And the early church with the apostles observed the Sabbath, no wonder Paul says, "For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works...

There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also ceased from his own works, as God did from his.

Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief." - Hebrews 4:4,9,10,11.

And by the way the Sabbath start from evening to evening, that is from Friday evening to Saturday evening.
WHY?

Because a day in the Bible start from evening to evening, that is why in Genesis 1 after each day of creation it say "...and the evening and the morning..."... this day and that day...who are we going to follow? God or man's commands? Think about this.

Thank you for responding.

"And I will admit that I do not have the answer that you seek."

This is the honesty I was looking for, which you could have stated right from the beginning, but instead, you decided to drag it out to the level we did. But you did manage to reach a spot in the discussion that did allow you to dig deep inside your mind and admit this statement. I'll retract my comment and apologize for doing so. Though it was a strong word to use, you can see how it does apply to those who are not dishonest.

I agree, you should learn what you 'practice'- many do not, and you openly admitted your lack of this knowledge.

Although I do ask some "tough questions", they really are very simple to answer - if one is truly an honest person.

I do wonder, how and if you don't know those answer, how can you legitimately be a so-called "Christian"?

Like I've said in the past - to believe in someone - partially, like Jesus (as "Christians" do), and claim he is complete within those "half-teachings", then that person is not only lying openly to others, but more importantly lying openly to themselves.

A fraudulent character is then revealed.

Do you think that lying is acceptable in religion?

Thanks again for responding.

Do you know there is talk amongst psychologist, about diagnosing religious fanatics as having a certain level of mental illness? I think I saw one story about it here on Topics last week.

There is a point where a guy like me just throws in the towel because I'm dealing with mind boggling ignorance from you.
Keep Saturday Holy if you want. I could care less. As a Catholic I'm going to continue gathering with my breathern on Sunday to celebrate the Holy Mass like the Apostles commanded; the day the Lord rose is Sunday. Sunday was established long before the Council of Laodicea proclaimed it official.

People like you forced the Church to hold council because you go around preaching false Christianitys. Then, when the Church publicly reaffirms certain teachings at these councils (like Sabbath worship), you turn around and stab them in the back, saying: "see everyone, the Roman Catholic Church just invented another doctrine Blah Blah".

I thoyght this deity was supposed to have changed it's mind about the sacrifice and murder of the OT at the advent of Jesus. I got worse rather than better....the cathaholics being the absolute most dispicable example in history.
