From your response NASL, it sounds like to me that you are making fun of the "power of prayer."
If you are not then please forgive me.
God answers prayers on His own time....not on our time.
Believe me, if you knew what I have been through since 2012, you would understand the "power of prayer."
Some of my prayers have been answered last year.....some have not been answered yet from last year.....some are being answered now for this year....
We put our cares, concerns, worries, etc. in God's hands and we keep our eyes focused on Him.
"God answers prayers on His own time....not on our time."
- How is it that you know what "God" does and doesn't do, but no one else has this keen ability.

You must be have a special gift of "inspiration" that the men who wrote the Bible did.

WOW!! You are going to be famous!

Or....you can be honest and admit that you don't know what "God" does or doesn't do, and just leave it at that.

Funny - this is a choice you get to make.

Well?

"Because the Church’s teachings are clear, Francis will spend his precious time and energy showing a side of the Church that people, especially the MSM, hasn’t paid attention to: that the Church is not a museum of the perfect, it is a field hospital for sinners." -- Fr. John Zuhlsdorf

Hmmm, interesting that Fr. Zuhlsdorf should call the Church "a hospital for sinners". I agree and always have.

Mat 16:13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
Mat 16:14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
Mat 16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
Mat 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Mat 16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Mat 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Mat 16:20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.
Mat 16:21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

(5) And I say also unto thee, That thou art (l) Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the (m) gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
(5) That is true faith, which confesses Christ, the virtue of which is invincible.
(l) Christ spoke in the Syrian tongue, and therefore did not use this
discourse to distinguish between Petros, which signifies Peter, and
Petra, which signifies a rock, but in both places used the word Cephas:
but his meaning is what is written in Greek, in which the different word
endings distinguish between Peter, who is a piece of the building, and
Christ the Petra, that is, the rock and foundation: or else he named him
Peter because of the confession of his faith, which is the Church's as
well as his, as the old fathers witness, for so says Theophylact. That
confession which you have made, shall be the foundation of the
believers.
It appears you and others have failed to believe Jesus here too....

"Mat 16:20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ."

And what do we hear day in and day out - "Jesus Christ this" or "Jesus Christ that".

Odd.

It appears that your texts don't either, yet you will claim the opposite.

Please post where "God" specifically states which texts are "of His inspiration" and which are not.

It isn't that hard of a task Anthony, why do you keep avoiding to post this information, all the while continue to divert away from it?

Hi Regina,
Good to see you on here, too.
Wife and I have had it pretty rough since 2012....too much sadness and sorrow.
I would appreciate your prayers for comfort.
I too have thought of you and many others on here. Hope you and the family are fine.
You've got them, Hank.

Its like this: if a husband says to his wife 'I love you but I'm not coming home tonight on our anniversary, I'm partying with my friends. Btw I also got a girl pregnant'
He may very well love his wife, but he didn't do anything to show it. Protestants man-made doctrine of faith alone via sola scripture made people think that all they needed to do was believe; have faith and they're saved.
That analogy I used above (from relevant radio) should be clear to you.... That woman will still love her husband but the doors will be locked when he returns home.
In your example, the man does not love his wife. He loves himself! If he loved his wife ,he wouldn't be with his buddies or have a girlfriend!

There must be two or more scriptures in the Bible

In order for a doctrine to be established
Matthew 16:13-21...

there must be another witness...

Matthew 16:13-21...

Has no other scriptures in the four Gospels to validate it..

and the way the that the Roman Catholic translates it makes it even

further from any truth.

The question at the beginning of verse of the verses...WAS

about Jesus asking

Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

This made Jesus the focal point (THE SUBJECT) of the discourse..

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH

HAS TWISTED THE CONVERSATION

TO MAKE PETER THE SUBJECT...AND ELEVATED PETER TO A POSITION

...THAT THE BIBLE DOES NOT SUPPORT...

NO SCRIPTURE CAN BE FOUND IN THE OLD OR NEW TESTAMENT TO ESTABLISH A PHYSICAL DYNASTY ON ROME..ITALY..

JESUS DISCLAIMED SUCH A KINGDOM/DYNASTY

JESUS SAID..TO PILATE

Joh_18:36 Jesus answered:

My kingdom is not of this world.

If my kingdom were of this world,

my servants would certainly strive

that I should not be delivered to the Jews:

but now my kingdom is not from hence.

Jesus established a SPIRITUAL KINGDOM...

The sin and debauchery of the ROMAN Catholic Church IS FURTHER PROOF

THAT

it is not the custodian ( upon earth ) of the KINGDOM OF GOD...

1Co_6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

1Co_6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

~~~

1Co_15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that

flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

Gal_5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

ALL THE ABOVE SIN IS FOUND WITHIN THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH.

WHEW-WHEW!!
She is sure to be physically healed now!!
:o)
When the doctor's say the disease is gone, I'll be sure to come back here and let you all know that your praying worked, okay?
You know Regina, in truth, I'd rather have read a response from you that stated something like the following:
"Hey New Age - sorry to have read about the ailment that has befallen your wife. Please keep her comfortable and continue to be positive with her, because whatever length of time she has with us on this Earth, help her to stay happy, content, cheerful, and most loving. This will allow you both to have the quality time you need."
I've already shown the forum where praying for someone to heal without medical help - FAILS.
Are you saying I should do the same? Just pray to "God" to heal her, all the while, just watch her die in front of my eyes?
I think not and I think most will also agree, that "just praying" will not heal her.
But thanks for the well wishes, as I know she, a "Christian" understands your empathy, as do I. Thanks!
Like you and others, we are on different sides of the statements that this forum conveys. Using logic and reason, faith and belief, I can say without hesitation, I do appreciate everyone's wishes, as they are said with sincerity and hope, and are said only to see a good result. These are things that I do take to heart and understand quite well.
I may be the 'bad guy' to some,'spawn of Satan' to others, or even just plain ol' "goofy', but in truth, I am no where near any of those things. I can say, through honesty, that I've probably helped probably hundreds of lives, and I will continue to strive to help others to stay a steady course in their life and on THEIR path - as we each have our own.
The crosses we bear in life are our own. Make them your own, but also understand them so you have the ability to remove them from your life.
Honesty is the starting point. Praying will allow you to acknowledge them, but acting upon them will require your effort.
Peace and light to you and yours.
Sorry to hear about your wife's illness.I know how you feel and what your going through. Live each day a day at a time and make her feel as if she was a queen! Pamper her and give her all her wishes if possible. Tell her a million times a day You Love Her and you are so Blessed to have her as your wife .Stay strong for her even when you feel defeated for her strength will come from You. Try to Stay positive and laugh as much as you can.Never let her see you upset.(I go outside if I want to cry)Just make everyday count! That's what I do for Nick. We keep you and your wife in our thoughts and daily prayers.

Peace
Appearances can be deceiving.
I think there are a lot of humble people on this thread. But their writing skills tend to make them misunderstood.
So I have to put the question to you directly, "Is it better for a person to be humble and contrite, or be educated "correctly" regarding Scripture?" I want you to think about it, with respect to Isaiah 66:2....
Is it not the one who listens and hears the Word of God, the one who is humble? Be careful, that your perceived mission in life walks by the most humble, and humbled person(s)....
Peace
READ ISAIAH 66:2 IN IT'S CONTEXT

Isa 66:2 For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

Isa 66:3 He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine's blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.

Isa 66:4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

NOTE
Isa 66:5 Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word;

Your brethren that hated you,

that cast you out for my name's sake, said,

Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they

shall be ashamed.

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH DOES NOT TREMBLE AT THE WORD OF THE LORD..

BUT RATHER HAVE ATTEMPTED TO REPLACE IT WITH THEIR OWN AND CALL US THAT

PREACH THE TRUE WORD OF GOD..

SOLA SCRIPTURIANS...

Php_2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation

with fear and trembling.

When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness.

slaves to sin.....free from the control of righteousness.....NOT UNDER GOD'S CONTROL....WHY???

Because you were slaves to sin....

What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? Those things result in death!

Slaves to sin result in death (spiritual)

But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.

Set free from sin.....slaves of God.....

Benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is?

Eternal Life.
