EARLY CHRISTIANS - 2nd Century

"The primitive Christians did keep the Sabbath of the Jews;...therefore the Christians, for a long time together, did keep their conventions upon the Sabbath, in which some portions of the law were read: and this continued till the time of the Laodicean council." "The Whole Works" of Jeremy Taylor, Vol. IX,p. 416 (R. Heber's Edition, Vol XII, p. 416).

It's not scary at all! I don't believe that there is a god TO strike me dead.
And I thought that was the excuse you'd have for this supposed god not striking me dead. I prayed a very sincere prayer and NO answer was forthcoming.
So you honestly think God answers every prayer YES. LOL.

That is your version of the contrived story...history may very prove otherwise when the "unburned" versions of the

Then, the real "demons" will be revealed!

Please keep up the prayer time. We once had a relative who was confined to an institution. He recognized no one. The doctor was making arrangements to 'throw away the key'.

We had a prayer time set for 6 p.m. Some family attempted to visit, but were denied. The doctor said that it was useless.

They returned to their motel room, but at ten minutes after 6, the doctor called the motel, telling them to return. The next morning they left that hospital with our relative, who soon returned to work, driving a truck.

There is nothing honest that comes out of either of their mouths. From the beginning they tried pretend under different names and they were exposed. Herme had a hissy fit when I exposed them, because I could smell the dishonesty. They both lie when they say it doesnt matter what people say as it doesnt bother them. Clearly they are both bothered so add that to the list of lies. Then when information is posted on the facts on abuse which neither of them can back their claims the non liar of the group wonders how you can buy candy coated information posted from secular news sites but clearly performers who helped with a charity are doing a strip tease for the pope because they took off their shirts which they always do and yes in part for the saftey of the incredible stunts they perform. They did get alot of publicity though with headlines like Pope Gawks at topless dancers. lol So stupid, but people who want to malign the church will use anything they can and the people who want to believe it will eat it up.
Herme has a problem with the Orthodox church saying it is the true church. Apparently she doesnt as she has said it, but hey the Protestants wont say anything as long as they are goading Catholics they are buddies. lol They are idol worshipping, Mary Worshipping Heathens who talk to dead people and have nothing but homos in their church because if they listened to Gif their buddy who attacks the church daily then he is attacking their beliefs, but hey doesnt bother Gif nor Hermetics. Lots of Orthodox would call Herme a heretic no problem. Oh yes he is an expert on the faith that is why he posts uncredible and unsourced links, some of which are obviously Protestant. lol
I posted links concerning talks, what was discovered and agreed upon. I asked them to read what their Patriarchs were saying. They did not bother. I posted links on very good discussions on problems which Herme said he would read. He never did, he just went off and twisted and distorted and made up what he wanted throwing a tantrum and saying poor me the Catholics are picking on me. Like the true shcolar he is he couldnt answer. I posted Orthodox links. He threw deeper tantrums. He blasted Fr. Dye and then apologized for a conversation he inserted himself into and attacked it as anti-Orthodox. The discussions were on disagreements with no hostility all of it came from him. Noone attacked the Orthodox but he felt a need to attack the Pope and belittle the discussions because he already has his own truth and there is no room for more. BOth of them are disingenous people and neither of them is honest and clearly not knowledgeable nor have any room for seeking any clarity. The protestants dont care nor do they believe the Orthodox has the true church. I could go into the Orthodox problems alot but what fruit? Herme has already proclaimed he doesnt have to listen to a Patriarch and he wont. He has proclaimed he doesnt want unity. Therefore he does not want what the leaders of the two churches recognized Christ in saying he prayed that we be one. Abortion to the truth.
Dustie you need to dust the lies off of yourself and go to confession.Everything you claim on this post is all lies and twisted.The only people on this forum that are throwing hissy fits are you catholics. And if you want to talking about someone using more than one name try pointing the finger at your buddie.She had three names all at once attacking me at the same time..How nuts is that....Post what ever you want about the orthodox church I wanna know whats going on...Post away Baby! And hermi and I never said that WE believe the Orthodox believe they are the true church. WE said that the Orthodox believe this to be true...okie dokie...hope you got it right this time.....one more thing...everything you say about us is what YOU are feeling....YOUR easy to read!

Sera, you did say that the abuse is a Catholic thing, "that's why its in the news" if I remember your words correctly.
Look, I really ain't interested in he said she said. I know what you are about and I don't feel the need to go back two months to publicly rebuke you. Ill let your conscience be between you and God. He knows if you're deliberately trying to smear the Church with deceptive tactics. He knows if you really said the abuse problem is a Catholic thing and now you deny saying it.
Just leave it at that.

Many people have prayed and prayed and prayed for a "god" to take them home and relieve them of their horrendous suffering.

A woman recently shared with me how her husband had suffered severe bouts of depression over the years and threatened to commit suicide on more than one occasion.

When he found out he had cancer all through him he was relieved, because then he COULD die and escape his severe emotional suffering.

I observed a man trapped in his useless pain-manufacturing body for over twenty years, praying a god would take him home.

Merciful god??? I think NOT!!!

No that was not your intent. You posted that video to Hojo under the headline, "Does this look like the true Church, lol!"
Your intent was to smear the CC by making it look like the Pope and Cardinals were participating in something inappropriate. That's why you headlined it in a mockery fashion- even using the 'lol' abbreviation to show you were 'laughing out loud'.
Well, then the intent was absolutely appropriate!

So you are certain your prayers were answered, and yet the prayers to save all those babies from starvation every day are ignored by the same god???

You are a selfish fool!

Also, you teach that Constantine changed the Sabbath to coincide with the pagan Sun god worship. That's not true.
I wish you Jehovah's and SDA would be more mindful of the serious implications that comes with deliberately spreading falsehoods. You're religion is not of God because you rely on deception in order to exist.
we talked last time about this. you completely ignored the evidence I provided that showed Constantine could not have changed the Sabbath. Christian writings 200 yrs before him clearly shows he didn't.
**********

Jesus did some of His best work on the Sabbath day, and declared that He was Lord of the Sabbath. He said that man was not made for the Sabbath, but the Sabbath was made for man.

Paul later says that we are not to let anyone judge us concerning 'holy days', or of the sabbath days.

Rom 14:4 Who art thou that judges another man's servant? to his own master he stands or falls. Yea, he shall be held up: for God is able to make him stand.
Rom 14:5 One man esteems one day above another: another esteems every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.

Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
Col 2:17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

Worship God EVERY DAY, and don't condemn others if they don't "do it like you do".

Jesus said, "I did not come to condemn the world."

I don't like links ..But I know about the Eucharist ..glad they do water the wine.
The O P was posting about in Ireland the priests were opposing
A new legal limit fir alcohol ..in case they could not get home after mass.
This seemed dilly to me. As I never saw them gulp it down like water.
Which then to.me brought up.the question ..I know they have wafers left over and keep them in the tabernacle..ok do what do they do with leftover consecrated wine. Must they drink it themselves.I'd that why they worried over lowering the limits..
And twice I asked CatHolics to comment..not give Mr Red printed links I can't were or a video discussing the benefits of the Eucharist
The second poster finally made his point ..as if the wine and bread are changed in substance why w would it be alcoholic at all.
Now we both know it still.tastes like wine..But I was curious ad his question for him actually made a bit of sense sort of
Ok, the priest normally prepares enough so that it will most all be consumed. Provided there is any left yes they consume it. We believe it should be treated with respect. There are protestant churches who also consume any remaining. Now the priest may invite others to consume remaining if there is too much. However on this very thread Kay Marie accused a server of hiding behind a curtain where she thought nobody would see and gulped the wined down. lol

Now what this new limit is I dont know nor do I know the reason it is opposed. I just dont want it to evolve into a Catholic bashing session where its see its WINE! Its not the blood of Christ! They Drank Grape Juice or Priests dont put water in it because they are all alchoholics. The accusations are endless.

I merely posted the links for further clarification of how Jews used wine at passover. The 4 cups. Adding water as well. I know that many people do not know the Jewish traditions or Catholic ones.

Dr. Hahn gives one of the best presentations on the 4th cup I have ever heard. I gave you the transcript on it (red) sorry not my choice, but if scroll over it then it turns blue or video. Whether one chooses to believe it is symbolic or becomes the precious blood of Christ spiritually in a way we cannot fully understand. The significants of the 4th cup and the events transpiring that night are brought out. My hope was that you would consider it and reflect on it as Dr. Hahn as a militant anti-catholic approaches it with a respectful view and how he as a Protestant viewed it.

Going through the motions, showing up at mass once a year and not understanding the faith, history or deeper understandings and knowledge of the teachings of the Early Fathers can lead some people to say they are Catholic or were a Catholic. Understaning why you believe something or the reason why something is believed one has to put in some effort. Many misconceptions can occur by others, but if I wanted to know for sure what a church taught and why I would go to a credible source of that church not go out and listen to the opinions of vast field of misinformation.

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.

God is only showing to all of us how great is His mercy. He doesn't have to do your bidding to prove Himself alive.
