If you Protestant bible only "fundies" will stop telling "lies" about what the Catholic Church (actually believes and teaches), we Catholics will stop "telling the TRUTH" about you bible only Protestants!!!!!!
~~~

So you believe What Adam and Eve believed.... that conjecture takes

preeminence over God's word....

You are in for your own rude awakening just as they experienced...

only your separation from God will have no ending...

You deny Him now ...it will be eternal with no redeemer to bail you out.

You have already reject Him...

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.

Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

Joh 1:5 And

the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

___

YOU EVIDENTLY HATE THE LIGHT...

Joh 3:19 And this is the condemnation,

that light is come into the world, and

men loved darkness rather than light,

because their deeds were evil.

Joh 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light,

neither cometh to the light,

lest his deeds should be reproved.

Joh 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light,

that his deeds may be made manifest,

that they are wrought in God.

Roseze! This verse reminds me of what you'd been saying;

Deuteronomy 30:4
Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens, from there the LORD your God will gather you and bring you back.

I never denied the Divinity of Christ..

You deny the truth taught by your own vatacan: Christ, Jesus - The incarnate Son of God and the redeemer of the human race....based on Scripture...

You call God a liar...He said of Christ:

Mt 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Mt 17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

Mr 1:11 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Mr 9:7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

Lu 3:22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.

Lu 9:35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

Hold on now. You've said Christ was not God in the past. That would eliminate His Divinity.

Yes, the Catholic Church teaches that Jesus is the Son of God, but they also teach He is God the Son; One being with the father. To say otherwise would eliminate His divinity.

Would you believe!!!!!!

ROME – In an effort to modernize one of the oldest practices of the Roman Catholic religion, the Vatican is offering indulgences–a reduction of time spent in purgatory–to those who will follow Pope Francis next Monday on Twitter and other social media during World Youth Day.

Indulgences were one of the key contentions that sparked the Protestant Reformation during the 16th century through the efforts of Martin Luther, a monk who served the Roman Catholic Church in Wittenburg, Germany. As Luther began studying the Scriptures after he was appointed as Chair of Biblical Theology, he became consumed with a passion to discover what it meant to be a Christian. In the Catholic Church, he had seen men trying to earn their way to Heaven, but as he read the Bible, he realized that salvation was through faith in Christ alone.

“I think I’ve found the truth at last,” the classic film Martin Luther depicts Luther as stating to a Church official.“By faith man lives and is righteous, not by what he does for himself, be it adoration of relics, singing of masses, pilgrimages to Rome, purchase of pardon for his sins, but by faith in what God has done for him already through His Son.”

Following the revelation, Luther began to challenge the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church, compiling a list of 95 thesis where he asserted that Catholic doctrine contradicted the Scriptures. He was later summoned to appear before a meeting of the Church, and was declared a heretic and excommunicated.

The offering of indulgences has continued throughout the ages, and has evolved in a variety of ways–including the Vatican’s latest addition to the pitch, to grant a reduction of time in purgatory to those who complete the exercises “with due devotion, via the new means of social communication.” The offer is only one of a number of accepted tasks, and the social media proposition was presented to in order to include those who could not attend the pilgrimage event in Brazil in person, as outlined from a document released by the Vatican.

If Oreilly had actually investigated thoroughly history and studied history he would have come to the historical conclusion that Jesus died on the cross and rose again.
It is a Historical Fact.
So many great minds have come to this conclusion this is a historical fact and they cannot deny it.
One example is SIMON GREENLEAF and American the father of Modern day Evidential Law one of Harvard's greatest professors when challenged by his students to test the facts of history in light of evidence became a believer. He came to the conclusion that the evidence was undeniable Jesus Rose from the dead it was a historical fact.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Greenleaf
Like most Roman Catholics O'rielly is being politically correct he is trying to please men all be it conservative but never the less non believers.
I really don't think so ..I think he is trying to prove there are facts
OUTSIDE scripture That prove Jesus lived
Which secularists debunk ALL THE TIME ..

I did not read his other books,..But I think he is going o be scorned on these interview,shows, those,people hate GOD

DIDN'T one of the greatest books come at Jesus from NON BELIEF.

SOME folks out there do not think he existed . I've read their posts .

But I will read this and watch before I decide :)

If you want to read "SOMEHTING" get the book by Simon Greenleaf,
The Testimony of the Evangelists Examined by The Rules of Evidence Administered in Courts of Justice, reprint of the 1874 edition,(Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 1984). ISBN 0-8010-3803-0
Simon Greenleaf, "The Testimony of the Evangelists," reprinted from the 1903 edition as an appendix in John Warwick Montgomery, The Law Above The Law,(Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship, 1975), pp. 91–140 & 149-163. ISBN 0-87123-329-0
Then get Lee Strobel's Case for Christ which will bring all sorts of Historians with huge credentials to the table that show Orielly the Politically correct right wing pandering conservative he is.
He would not be able to articulate the Gospel as revealed in scripture as his faith is in the RCC the institution not Jesus.
Anything that Gets,Jesus among he masses,showing He existed in the first place is,good,IMO

Right wing?? He is more right an left But gives,all opinions,an airing ..
Please,font tell me you approve of he leftists,who kill babies,every day and bring us to socialism???

Show me where they teach that Christ and God are one God...show me the Holy Trinity showing God and Christ are one God......

Show me where they say the very definition of Saviour is wrong:
soter: a deliverer, i.e. God or Christ:--saviour.

Do you know what "or" means??????!!!!

Show me where they say God is lying in the Scripture I showed you...

I'll put my Faith, hope, Salvation and any judgement that Our Lord has for me in HIS HANDS and not in some (anti-catholic) "snake oil" judgmental Protestant preacher like you Confrinting. You do not speak for God and NEVER WILL until you come to TRUE SALVATION in Jesus Christ........ I have heard bible only condemning (hatefilled) ministers like you for over 35 years as a sola scriptura Protestant, until God Our Father, through His Son Jesus, being led by the Holy Spirit, released me from this "bible only BONDAGE" of condemning of other Christians (especially Catholics) and led me to the TRUTH of the TRUE INTERPRETATION of the Bible, along with 2000 years of the TRUTH of TRUE CHURCH HISTORY, manifested (in and through Jesus Christs One True Apostolic Catholic Church.

He is definitely not the author of the RCC that has at its head leaders that encourage its congregations to sacrifice Jesus on a weekly basis contrary to his very words that declare it is finished he is the last sacrifice and as the the alter was broken and curtain torn we know it is not needed anymore. Yet you contradict his word in your sects your denominations false gospel on weekly basis which is plain to see for those who choose to open their eyes. On that and that alone I can declare the RCC not to be the one true church, because the simple explicit teaching of the Bible contradicts RC teachings out right.
We all agree your sect the RCC is not the one true yadda yadda that apparently has slipped by you unseen or you choose to ignore that fact as well. LOL
What you are too zealous as was Judas to zealous to see is that you belong to one of the 42000 denominations that you condemn.
BTW Baptists, Alliance, Lutherans, Calvary Chapel Mennonite Brethren etc. etc all agree on the essentials all have the same faith same Gospel and can and do worship in unity and love.
Just because one denomination has a focus on over seas missions or likes to worship with a band and another with and organ does not mean we disagree on that which matters and in all other things Paul in the word of God declares there is liberty.
In God's garden his Church there are many flowers of many shades and colors but all get their energy from the Son of God all point to his light.
If you wish to stick with your cookie cutter man made sect so be it.
As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.
I like that about the flowers,

And THey change their own teachings all the TIME...with New dogma..encyclical,..bowing to science on evolution ..That one shocked me ..
