THAT SHOULD NOT BE SEEN AS ANTI ANYTHING.....it's pro Jesus
Yes!! I have said "all along " that the Catholic Church is the One TRUE Church, that Jesus Christ initiated, formed and established in Matt 16:13-21 over 2000 years ago....However-- It is not the only Church, but it is the one TRUE CHURCH with the FULLNESS of the Faith and the FULLNESS of the TRUTH...... Every Protestant Church that came after the reformation "rejected" many of the TRUTHS that Jesus handed down to His Apostles and were taught for the first 1500 years such as the Eucharist, 7 books of the bible, some of the Sacraments, etc....Protestants remain our bothers and sisters in Christ.However..Our lord led me out of my bible only church after 35 years and into a "full communion of Faith and Truth, growing each and every day at Daily Mass, the Eucharist, the TRUTH of the bible, the Sacraments (especially Reconciliation) and confession and the blessed Sacrament with adoration and prayer. I as a Catholic Christian, have chosen to worship, grow and adhere to that FULLNESS of Faith,(each day) in and through Our Lords One True Catholic Church....in which no other Church can provide that that overabundance of completeness in growing in the faith of Jesus Christ!!!

Even at the time of the schism ..when they excommunicated y our bishop ..or did they.

I'm trying to find out if this,power ...which I did learn and believed .

Rests,in EACH priest it ordains..sinful ..or alternative ...or considered heretical

Do they still turn wine and bread into blood and body ..

Did the Church of England bishops,and priest . Retain this power ..plus,..ordination power ....since they had been..CATHOlic..And,did they pass this on...theoretically until today ..

What about Luther and the other clergy who became REFORMERS.

His is not he first time I've wondered on this .

Do you do see,us,as,brokers,and,sisters in Christ ..Good .

But no matter how much you love going to CHUrch etc

Can we,agree that 'THe,CHURCH does not save anyone ..no Church.

I BELUEVE with my every fiber ..That it was the HOLY Spirit that so mercifully moved me to seek Christ..as my LORD AND SAVIOUR .

The CATHOLIC CHURCH gave me the knowledge of Christ ..the Trinity ..

But it was nit until much later I came to full FAITH ..

IT'S JESUS,

And,what I read here at times,..makes me feel with some of you ..it's he CHURCH.

And the insistence that nothing changed since I learned ..really makes
Me wonder on a lot of things,my memory not being one of them.

Things,were different ..

Not he point today .

Jesus,His blood ..His,taking our Sin on the Cross saves us,.....

ALTAR CALL… ARE YOU REALLY “SAVED”?
“First, we must clarify the question. No one is ever saved "as a
result" of an altar call. We are saved only as a result of the
GOSPEL. The question, as too often asked, betrays an awful
misunderstanding of this most important point. But with that
clarification made, we may pass over this question very quickly.
If and when God truly saves a man during the time of public invitation, then we all say "Amen!"
“In all fairness, it is important to observe that the practice was NOT born in the apostolic Church. It is NOT FOUND IN THE MINISTRY
OF JESUS, His apostles or even the church of the post-apostolic
period. We do see Jesus and the apostles "inviting" men and women to Christ and to be saved, but NEVER by means of this particular method. "Invitations" they give, to be sure! But not altar calls. The altar call is "old fashioned" in only a very relative sense.“
“It is old fashioned to us at this end of the twentieth century,
but it first AROSE MORE THAN EIGHTEEN CENTURIES AFTER CHRIST.”
(a made up concept)
http://www.biblicalstudies.com/bstudy/ecclesi...
ALTAR CALL
The modern altar call has its beginnings in the efforts of
American evangelist Charles Finney in the early 19th century.
The Altar Call,was in respect to the ALTAR which was to be the central table where the Communion is blessed,and depicting the CENTRAL heart of the Christian experience.You are perhaps right in the fact that such a term was not used in the Early Church,but conversion is what the Altar Call is focused on. The decision of sinners who are challenged by the Holy Spirit to REPENT.Most Prt churches have a Table which is set before the congregation,covered by a clean cloth cover. That of course may be in response to years of tradition,but it helps the people of God to focus on the Holiness of God,the sacredness of the things of God.

The Altar is used for Communion,but it is a Table which represents the Mercy of God as well. Many churches have a chair that is the Mercy Seat as it were.But the Table or altar as it is called by most prots,is the center of Christian respect for the Mercy of God,and the Holy Communion that is done as a memorial for the Death of our Lord.

I always thought that the Altar was a railing as we see in the RCC,but the Altar was even a large Rock mass that served like a table for the sacrifice of the Lamb in the Levitical practices.The Prots focus on salvation,and helping the visitor to realize that a decision must be made to follow Christ.Every Church considers that which is set up at the front of the building as the central altar,where souls are saved by the Mercy of God,which is through the death of our Lord on the Cross,on Mt.Calvary.

Oh really!!! The devil believes in Jesus Christ and I sincerely doubt if he is saved!!! You keep "cafeteria style" cherry picking your bible verses such as Acts 16:31 and again (as always) "making them mean ONLY what YOU want them to mean"!!!! It is "no wonder" that you have absolutely (no idea) as to what you are talking about, which comes as (no surprise) to ANY of us Catholics who "know the TRUTH" of the TRUE INTERPRETATION of the Bible and what TRUE Salvation is all about!!!
You got my curiosity...how does one attain the status of being saved in the Catholic denomination???

And its still not the,altar call itself that saves,..probably not often
But it's,possible,a msn can go through any motions or rituals,..in any Church
And,still not have Jesus in their hearts,..

It's,Jesus,who is our High Priest ...not telling minister ..or priest
It's,repentance ..it can be brokenness,

It's,belief in Our,Lord,as,Saviour ...

Tell me...yes or no...is the following a lie...it comes from the NABre pope approved Bible:
Church: this word (Greek ekklsia) occurs in the gospels only here and in Mt 18:17 (twice). There are several possibilities for an Aramaic original. Jesus’ church means the community that he will gather and that, like a building, will have Peter as its solid foundation. That function of Peter consists in his being witness to Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of the living God. The gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it: the netherworld (Greek Had&#275;s, the abode of the dead) is conceived of as a walled city whose gates will not close in upon the church of Jesus, i.e., it will not be overcome by the power of death.

There is a thread for you very narrow-minded Catholics,you want that than you should leave.This thread has been here for years,and people of all backgrounds and faiths have come on here.If we all thought alike,than out of boredom with each other,there would still be in-fighting.
