UNLESS YOU CAN VALIDATE AND GIVE SCRIPTURE (book, chapter and verse FROM THE BIBLE BEFORE ALL OF US ON THIS FORUM that Sola Scriptura or bible only was the SOLE SOURCE that was taught and proclaimed in Jesus Christs 1st Churches in the NEW Testament (Antioch, Ephesus, Corinth, Galatia, Thessalonica, etc AND IT IS THE ONLY ONE SOURCE OF FOUNDATION FOR GODS WORD, THEN ALL OF YOUR BIBLE TEACHING AND PREACHING IS ZILCH.----JUST AS I THOUGHT, THERE IS "NO PROOF"!!!

Sorry, but CIB has been shown to be a joke many times and he lacks truth and credibility. If you think a guy who posts the inquistion killed more people than existed in Europe is a good debator then you really have no clue at all. Further he posted rubbish that 2 Popes denied that Mary was ever assumed and he was exposed yet again. He proof texted Cyril of Jersusalem who was not sola Scriptura and he copied a bunch of untruths from a ridiculous pamphlet which even many Protestants laugh at, but you ate it up. I hope you are proud of yourself. He said Catholics are not Christians. How sad for him and how sad for you that you would believe anything that comes from him.

Now Pad after making false assertions about the Journey home says these questions will never be asked.

The question is never asked,and will not be approached.
Since when does the Bible have to declare itself sola scriptura to satisfy anyone's belief?

Catholics have long asked Protestants how a doctrine which claims everything is found in scripture and scripture interprets scripture where does it say this? Where does the bible say which books are scripture? Where does the bible say or define scripture alone? It doesn't! Yet in here we often see Protestants demanding to show where it says the Roman Catholic Church is the church. First we explained the church is not properly defined as the Roman Catholic Church its not in any documents. You say we do not follow scripture or dismiss it. RUBBISH! ALL scripture is profitable or useful but its not nor has it ever been the only Truth. The bible itself declares that the church is the pillar of the truth and that the truth would come through the church. So how do we know what the church is when there many many people with false gospels and teachings? The Apostles were chosen. They were sent. They taught and ordained others. They didnt pass out books and sell mail order preacher degrees. They set up a hieararchy and said to obey them.

Since when does Jesus have to call Himself God in order to prove that He is in fact God? Ask Ox or New Age they have been asking you to prove it from scripture alone. Why do you even believe the books you accept are scrpture?

How is it that we should believe every man's account concerning historical Christianity?

We don't it is full of rebellion just as the bible is. If you notice the letters are often corrections. Plus we are told your evangelical fundamentalist churches were the real deal from the beginning yet there is no historical evidence in history or tradition which shows a church that believes or operates in the fashion you claim is supposed to be. As the Protestant convert Henry Newman said, To Know History is to cease to be Protestant.

you are certainly not a "holy" person as you have showen on this forum, nor do those words indicate that he is speaking about a roman catholic church, in fact, just the opposite as those here referred to are "born again" Christian.
Just as Christ "called" paul, he still calls people today to minister His Word, and your pedophile priests are exempt from that High Calling.
and while you spoke about me, lets looka t what the Bible says and it is this. "a body, thou hast prepared for me." now a egg from a woman in and by itself can not produce a child. a man semen also by itself can not produce a baby. it takes the semen and the egg to produce a child. and God is a spirit and holy, so He would not have impregnated mary, as He got very angry when the "sons of God" came down from heaven and took wives for themselves, and yet you and others believe that He would do that also with a earthly woman.
only my words are accurate, not your opinion, falsely as it is.
Jesus took on the "embryo" stage of human life, thereby insuring that He would be all man-all God. CANT BE ANY OTHER WAY.
if marys egg was used, then He becomes half man-half God, and that is just not possible.
Rejecting your "surrogate motherhood" theory does not make one unholy, nor does it make me any less a member of the same Church at Rome St. Paul was writing to.

Joh 19:24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

Ac 8:35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.
Ro 4:3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

Ga 3:8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.
Ga 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
Ga 4:30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.
1Ti 5:18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

Jas 2:8 ¶ If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
Jas 2:23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.

2Pe 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

I do not have to prove God's word to any one...The Power of the Holy Spirit will vindicate God's word Him Self...

The devil did not make any points when he attempted to do the same thing that you are attempting in the wilderness..

JESUS answered to him were ==IT IS WRITTEN...

I have given you WHAT IS WRITTEN from the New Testament and unless you repent and believe the gospel..

Jesus words were

Mar_1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.


Act_15:7 And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that

the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.

YOU EVIDENTLY ARE NOT SAVED..FOR YOU NOT ONLY DO NOT BELIEVE THE GOSPEL...YOU HATE IT..

2Co 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;

2Co 4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.

2Co 4:3 But if our gospel be hid,

it is hid to them that are lost:

2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

2Co 4:5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

2Co 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

2Co 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

The current Bishop of Rome traces his lineage back to St. Peter. Yes, I'm am member of that same Church. Those who were in that Church did not believe your surrogacy theory and they were indeed born again, as am I.

Against my better judgment I have to reply to this sleight of hand.

Put that verse in context you deceiver. Many of your Protestant brethren are claiming that it doesnt apply to them or doesn't really mean that but we know its Just ROMAN CATHOLICS being addressed here becuase all their was in ROme was INFIDELS! The city of over a million people. Paul writes before he even goes to Rome that he does not wish to intrude on the foundation of another. In scritpure we know that when the Apostles spoke of a foundation it was in relation to another Apostle or Christ. So who was this man Paul was talking about? As he would pass through? PETER!

Rose, Concerned has not gotten one single theological point correct. I am a 39 yr old catholic laity. I've only been into this stuff for a couple yrs, and I have no problem standing toe to toe with him. The man is so filled with pride that Jesus is not recognizable in him or anything he posts.

One of my biggest concerns with Protestantism is how they attach themselves to whatever charismatic preacher sways em. If the preacher is an articulate speaker or he moves them with his story telling skills, they say "look at him, he is called by God; the Holy Spirit is guiding him!"

Next think you know, your family is holed up in a compound with him and FBI agents are ready to storm the building.
The Bible warns us of men who'll come along and preach a different Gospel, or as I like to call it: a "conspiracy Christianity". That's what these guys are teaching. A conspiracy Christianity; a hidden secret Christianity or some other crap that didn't come to light because the evil Roman Church murdered billions and tortured everyone but those in the Church.

Nobody see God they will tell you how you can believe,
How many prophets abuse accuse rest prosecuted and judged and killed?

Many many they don't liked that someone know what they prepare.

Who they are?

-It is exist very low organization.
-It is exist very high organization
They can ruin life every person and every family.

Did they liked that you know?
no

Then you will have many documents over yourself if are you one of them like me.

If he worked at a government agency he would be in violation church/state and could be disciplined.If it were a private agency, depending on their guidelines he could address her spirituality with spiritual counseling without violating standards. However a counselor should be trained to do Christian counseling of any kind because this is a very sensitive area that could cause great confusion and harm if done incorrectly. There is training available and credentials available for both Christian Counseling and Orthodox Counseling.It would be unethical to do actual Christian or Orthodox counseling without such a credential.If he is just praying with her and this is therapeutic for her, this may be helpful in building therapeutic alliance/rapport for the counseling itself.The primary rule is "do no harm". As far as Topix goes, depending on economia canons re Caths and Ortho praying together may or may not apply, based on the person's belief.Hope this is helpful.
