Why is the Catholic Church
Not mentioned in the prophecies,
And letters,
You know what I think?
I think that the cathaholics are the "Archons" that we were all warned about by the Coptic Gnostics.
Just listen to the way they talk and act toward everyone.
Read about them in the Nag Hammadi library. It is quite revealing.
They destroyed all the writings(or so they thought), but these were found around 1945.

ROMAN CATHOLIC'S WORSHIP THE VIRGIN

THE worship of the Virgin Mary throughout the Roman Catholic Church, is one of those things which there is no denying,
Oldgee,

Your post should never start out with:'Roman Catholics worship Mary' or 'Roman Catholics do this and that' Roman Catholics believe in blah blah'..

You have an opportunity to ask Catholics what we believe. There are some very good Catholic posters on here. They can answer your questions and provide links for more info if you're interested ...
There really is no excuse for you anymore. If you were sincere in your faith, you'd be careful about violating the Commandment about bearing false witness.

So instead of starting your post of with false accusation, why dont you simply ask us: "Do Catholics worship Mary"
No Oldjg, we don't. Worshipping Mary would be against the commandment of God. We simply strive to treat her exactly like Our Lord did. He honored His father and mother. So to do we.

ROMAN CATHOLIC'S WORSHIP THE VIRGIN

Again, where haste is any object, she is the party with whom it is expedient to deal. We are told by Alphonsus Liguori-a great favorite, by the way, with the late Cardinal Wiseman-that prayers will often be more speedily heard in invoking her name, than in calling on that of Jesus Christ
Such then, reader, is a glimpse of a subject that might be extended to a volume; assuming that you are satisfied, we have only to ask you whether the infatuation and the impiety here manifested, be not equal to anything of the sort that has ever been brought before you? Say if darkness be not essential to the Popedom; and whether the spirit of prophecy has not most correctly designated it "a kingdom full of darkness!"
Would not the spread of the Sacred Scriptures be utter destruction to this, as well as its other tenets? Again then, we ask, is it a wonder that the priesthood should cherish such an aversion to the Word of God? But is it not, in very deed, a wonder that Protestants should be so indifferent to the presence and the spread of this most impious system in the British Isles? Is it not passing strange that while it comprises so much that ought to fill all good men's hearts with grief and indignation, that they should be so apathetic, so little disposed to make adequate efforts for its check, and its overthrow? Does not Popery combine all that I, is most destructive on earth, with all that is insulting to heaven, and is it not strange that it should be viewed, not only with indifference, but even with complacency, actually finding advocates among so called Protestants, and receiving imperial endowments from the exchequer of a Protestant state? Is it not dreadful that this system, both at home and abroad, should be petted and pensioned by the Government of England? Are not these things meet subjects for a lamentation.
Three pages of (typical) "anti-catholic lies of "distorting, twisting and misrepresenting the truth" which is about the (only) thing that we Catholics can expect from you bible only "fundies". You Protestants will (dig up) ANY KIND OF DECEIVING articles (in your own desperation) in order to keep your anti-catholic hate, hostility and vengeance "heated up" against Jesus Christ HIMSELF and His One True Apostolic Catholic Church........ For over 2000 years, hypocrites, bigots, liars, deceivers of the truth and heretical ministers and preachers, like those of you on this forum, have COME AND GONE ----YET------Jesus Christ and His One True Catholic Church-----LIVES ON and will continue to LIVE ON, just like Jesus HIMSELF, said it would in Matt 16-13-21!!!!!----You "fundies" deceive NO ONE but yourselves!!!

Are you trying to unseat the RCC?
:o)
Shame on you!!
Since you seem knowledgeable, where does "God" specifically state which texts are "of His inspiration" and which are not?
Do you know?
Thanks!
Umm, I don't think God ever specified which texts are inspired. But the definition of inspired is loose. The men that wrote out the text did so with the intent of explaining the events that should be recorded. So their inspiration while writing was God. Some people think that "inspired by God" means that God put the words into your mind and U write them. Not necessarily because the term has been used so loosely even to describe the Sunday morning sermon, which is just the pastor teaching the word according to his own understanding while the congregation see this as God sending these words to the pastor. Staying on track here, I haven't yet run across any passage in the Bible where it is written that God specified which texts are inspired, still depending on your definition though. We can assume that all of the texts are inspired by God if we look at it because they were written in honor of God and often times by the command of God.

Hey, I noticed when the real questions, I mean the really goooood questions are asked, the conversations come to a halt. Then gets started back up with jibberish (spellcheck) that steers away from these questions. I'm not denying God's existence one bit but if we are to consider the will of God, the god who has revealed Himself to the prophets of old, then we must ask questions when we see our religious authorities perverting and twisting what has already been revealed to us concerning the practices of worship of God. I say, if U worship God, then the manners of your practices should coincide with what was written historically.

Koresh and Jones labeled themselves "God". Slight difference from the Catholic Church, not that facts are useful to you.

The Fullness of the Faith is only in the Catholic Church
2000 years ago Jesus Christ gave us the "fullness of the faith and the fullness of the Truth" in His One True Church! The Catholic Church IS that Church! The Catholic Church is appreciative of the gifts that Jesus has given us. He IS the Eucharist. He gave us the Church. It is HIS bride. He instituted all of the sacraments and they are ways that we receive His grace. Mary is his mother. She is the mother of God and she points us to him. Through the communion of saints we are able to appreciate and model ourselves after those who are already in Heaven.
The idea of the fullness of the faith really struck me later when I was listening to a speaker. I can't recall who the speaker was in remember his exact words so I'm paraphrasing here. He said protestant churches are like going into a voided setting (some don't even have a cross) that is half-empty with little or no historical or spiritual reverence or significance. It is a social hour of a couple of bible verses, with a song "leaning of the everlasting arms", followed by coffee and donuts and that's about it for the week!! The catholic church is like going into the throne room and seeing the KING surrounded by all these beautiful tapestries and paintings. The floors are made of gold and the walls are build of precious stems. You realize that everything there is made by the King and for the King! You are not losing focus on the King by appreciating his works. In fact, they help you appreciate and love him more and find reverence and HIS real presence.
When we are in the presence of God we are "down on our knees" in front of him---in humility and in prayer from His glory and not necessarily looking at anything on any walls focusing on HIM.... As a former Protestant, it is a good comparison for what the Catholic church is in relationship to God, Jesus Christ and His Church. Everything she gives us is from God and there to help us get closer to God, to grow and nurture in our faith.
The fullness of the TRUTH and the fullness of the FAITH in--the sacraments, confession, Eucharist, the magisterium, Mary, the saints--are all reasons why I'm Catholic because they are gifts from God that help us focus on Him and bring us closer to Jesus Christ HIMSELF that is manifested ONLY in and through His One True Catholic Church---not the only Church--but the One True Church.
There is no Catholic Church. There are Catholic church buildings. There is a Catholic denomination...its the largest in the USA.

Christ never built any denomination/s...

you wrote
Is The Roman Catholic Church the only true Church founded by Jesus Christ?
The simple answer is YES, that Jesus Christ founded the Church which began at Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost and continued in the lives of those who truly belonged to Him and put their faith in Him, no matter what their relationship was to any particular leaders in the visible church structure.
The visible Church is the expression of Christianity from what it was in the days of the apostles – a family of royal priests who knew God personally who were the people of God recorded down through history.

Your concept of God.... must be that he lives in the sewer...
If the Roman Catholic Church with all of it's debauchery and evil is the
only true example of the Holiness of God on the earth....and
they are the only representation of God here...
Then what kind of cesspool can we expect a roman catholic heaven be like?
My Bible does not say Christ built a Church. It does say He built His church...as in: a calling out, i.e.(concretely) a popular meeting, especially a religious congregation (Jewish synagogue, or Christian community of members on earth or saints in heaven or both):--assembly, church.

I can respond respective to Catholicism.

First, the Church teaches that private revelation isn't a basis for doctrine in and of itself.

Second and more essential, Smith's revelations are predicated upon the notion that the Church established by Christ 2,000 years ago fell completely away from his teachings within a century or so of his death, and that a "restoration" is required.

More problematic still are subsequent teachings of Mormonism that are contrary to the precepts that Catholics and other Christian denominations, such as belief in the supreme God as almighty, eternal, and unchanging. Mormons revelations from the "gods" aren't earmarked by similar clarity from their self-described "prophets".
