Why don't you go play with someone else's Bible? How about the Mormons or Muslims. They got a bible too, ya know?
Catholics follow the word of God- both written and oral. In fact, the CC told you the writings were the word of God, and now you stab them in the back with it.
And to boot, you only follow whatever you see in our written scriptures! You don't even follow what the Apostles taught about their writings! That its very bold of you.
It seems to me, Tiger, if you were really interested in what the Apostles taught when they explained their writings, you'd go to the writings of their students. None of you will dare venture there. It would destroy the SDA cult if they considered what the Apostles actually taught. Fundamental Christianity completely relies on ignoring what the first Christians understood.
Here is what the Disciple of John said about the Sabbath
"For if we live after the manner of Judaism, we avow that we have not received grace. If then those who had walked in ancient practices attained unto newness of hope, no longer observing Sabbaths, but fashioning their lives after the Lords day (Sunday), on which our lives ALSO rose with Him and through His death.....how shall we be able to live apart from Him?
It is monstrous to talk of Jesus Christ and still practice Judaism. For Christianity did not believe in Judaism, but Judaism in Christianity"
Ignatius to the Magnesians
The Ten Commandments were given to the Jews but it can be proven that each and every one of the Ten Laws was already in force way before Exodus.
SDA’s do not keep “sabbaths”(Ceremonial sabbaths).
They were a shadow and were nailed to the cross as I explained earlier today.

Ignatius’s writings are not considered to be inspired.

Prove to me that the Lord’s day is Sunday.
To me, from the Bible, the Lord’s Day is the Sabbath, not Sunday.
In regard to the Sabbath, Christ says, "The Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath."
Not A Sabbath, but THE Sabbath.
He says also, "The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath." Mark 2:27, 28.

He does not say, the Sabbath was made for the JEWS, and a Sabbath for the Gentiles, but "THE Sabbath was made for man." --All mankind.

Some may think that our first day, is in reality the seventh, but this is settled when we examine Matt. 28:1, and Luke 23:56, & 24:1, where a plain distinction is made between the two days.

Matthew says, "In the end of the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week," etc.

Luke says, "And rested the Sabbath day according to the commandment. Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning," etc.

Now your turn Clay...

Purgatory proclaimed a dogma by Council of Florence "If they have died repentant for their sins and having love of God, but have not made satisfaction for things they have done or omitted by fruits worthy of penance, then their souls, after death, are cleansed by the punishment of Purgatory; also ... the suffrages of the faithful still living are efficacious in bringing them relief from such punishment, namely the Sacrifice of the Mass, prayers and almsgiving and other works of piety which, in accordance with the designation of the Church, are customarily offered by the faithful for each other." Council of Florence (1438-1443)
*Notice: faithful still living are efficacious in bringing them relief from such punishment.
-so sinners here can pray for relief of punishment but the sacrifice of Jesus Christ cannot keep a person out of purgatory.
-if this isn't a doctrine from Satan himself, I'll buy you a watch.

Limbo Eliminated; Status of Purgatory in 'State of Limbo'
By Raoul Thibodeaux, Avant News Staff Writer
Rome, Italy February 12, 2006

The new catechism of Roman Catholic doctrine that did away with Limbo and was approved by Pope Benedict XVI in the middle of December 2005 threw the state of Limbo into a state of chaos. This catechism changing the eternal residence for those souls included in both the Limbo of the Fathers (limbus partum) and Limbo of Children (limbus infantium) by moving them straight to Heaven has left many souls wondering what happened and why.

“Operations in Limbo have been running smoothly for the last eight centuries and then, out of nowhere *POOF* everybody is gone,” said Micah Herschisinger, the former Director of Operations in Limbo who, prior to the new catechism, was responsible for the eternal care of approximately 6.4 billion souls of unbaptized and aborted infants and the 72 righteous Hebrew prophets who lived before Jesus Christ was born.

Whadda bout it Catholics???? Why is not Christ sending anyone to purgatory??
A. He forget there is a purgatory?
B. No one ever told Him there is a purgatory?
C. There is not purgatory to send any one to?

And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

New Age Spiritual Leader:
I was not specifically saying that you were fearful of a decision to walk away from prior Christian beliefs.

I was generalizing. But I think, that "leaders and followers", may have feared for their own and other's salvation, the release of non-orthodox Nag-Hammadi(gnostic) writings, as opposed to accepted Christian writings(canonized). It is of course based more on a sense of insecurity.
Why would anyone worry about another person? Are those "leaders and followers" so perfect that they can "cast that first stone?" I think not.

No religion is required, still, huh? You only need you - to make the right choice for you - given that moment's circumstances and as long as your choice doesn't affect anyone else negatively.
- Of course the caveat is - if the choice is to do something good, then that is a good thing - because it was done through a form of love or kindness and one could very well help thousands with just one kind gesture.

People are insecure because they are dishonest with themselves. They are afraid to admit the truths that exist, only because it causes them to go against with only what they have only been informed of.
- their insecurities are of their own making - yeah June.....Self.

As for this portion of your response, and BTW - thanks for responding!.....
"the release of non-orthodox Nag-Hammadi(gnostic) writings, as opposed to accepted Christian writings(canonized)."
- the "release"?
+ You do realize, after 325 CE, Constantine and his "harem of bishops" put out an edict to suppress and destroy any texts that was not approved by the State - the NHLibrary texts are those texts that the 4th State of tyranny wanted destroyed, burned - GONE, so there wouldn't be anymore dissension within those specified ranks and the followers of the fledgling religion. They couldn't have people thinking about themselves, no way - they wanted them to "Need the Church" and all of its supposed glories.

They weren't released, they were rediscovered after 1500+ yrs of being hidden in a cave, which was originally done to ensure the information was to be conveyed....showing how wrong Christianity is today, and also showing how men have determined what you are to believe.

So called "Christians", in general live a ruse that they were fed too believe. Plain and simple. All of who deny this, are only lying to themselves and others.

<quoted text>Christianity is not immune to learning through time what works and what does not. Most of us operate on an assumption that we have knowledge enough to know truth from falsehood. IMHO it is the collision of this assumption with reality, that we often discover we lack sufficient information to make wise decisions.(It is a source of dismay and disillusionment.)
Christianity should not be changing its belief from century to century. One would not have to if one believes in all of what Jesus taught, and not just the piddly beginner level "parables" that men of many centuries ago, could only figure out.
- Unless, those men of centuries ago, had an agenda to control people, in a certain way. Looky-there - they succeeded.

The Word of God (Jesus) said the bread is His body, the wine His blood and that we must eat it to have eternal life. The written Word says the same thing. Neither Jesus nor the bible say it is just a symbol.
Now who's really ignoring the bible?
SBC embraces the teaching of Christ on the matter, and our beliefs do not show a contradiction in the Bible...we do not drink blood nor eat the flesh of humans..

Per Scripture:
The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.

symbolic: Of, relating to, or expressed by means of symbols or a symbol. Serving as a symbol.

My turn? Its still your turn Tiger.
Catholics go by what was taught from the Apostles. We do not go by whatever we interpret from their writings, 2,000 yrs later.

You SDA people simply saw the Sabbath references in the Bible, and decided to start 'Christian-type' religion based on what you saw. That's no different than the Born Agains and Pentecostals. Your theme is The Sabbath.

Ignatius' writings are important. He knew the Apostles personally and was a validly ordained Bishop by the hands of John or possibly Peter.
A serious Christian would be excited at the insight this man would have on their faith. But not the SDAs. You need to ignore it, because it destroys your 19th century Sabbath cult in seconds.

Anywho, its still your turn Tiger. Where does Christ command a Bible be produced to be the authority on His Church. That's all I ask.

WORLD YOUTH DAY BRAZIL 7.22.2013

The Pope will leave Rome's Fiumicino airport at 8,45 AM on Monday, July 22nd. After a roughly 12

hour flight he will land in Rio de Janeiro at 4:00 p.m. However, the official welcoming ceremony with

president Dilma Rousseff won't be held at the airport, but at the Guanabara palace out in the

city.

Then, the Pope will take some time to rest at the residence of Rio's Archbishop. During his first

day in Brazil no public meetings are planned, so that Pope Francis can recover from jet-lag.

On Wednesday, the Pope will travel by helicopter

to the Nuestra Señora de Aparecida shrine, which is about 120 miles from Rio. There he will

celebrate Mass and have lunch with a group of young seminarians.

On his way back, the Pope will also visit the San Francisco de Asis hospital, where AIDS patients are treated.

On Thursday July 25th, the Pope will receive the 'golden keys' to Rio and will bless the

Olympic flags. Then he will visit the Manguinhos slum, where over 50,000 people live. At 6:00p.m.

the Pope will attend his first massive gathering with young pilgrims in the Copacabana beach.

On Friday 26th, he will confess some of the youths and will later meet with a group of young Rio

prison inmates. In the evening, he will lead a moving Way of the Cross ceremony along the streets

of Rio, where he will pray for the youth and all the challenges they face.

On Saturday, July 27th, the Pope will attend a meeting with politicians and entrepreneurs at

Rio's Municipal Theater. In the evening, he will celebrate a prayer vigil with more than one million youths.

On Sunday, Pope Francis will end the meeting with an open-air Mass. It's there that he will announce

where the next WYD will take place.

Finally, before taking a flight back home, the Pope will meet with Latin American bishops or their representatives.

The Pope's plane will land in Rome on Monday July 29th at 11,30 a.m. With such a tight schedule, Pope Francis and his entourage are expected to take a few days off to recover from the long trip.
