Did Jesus subscribe to the view of "traditions" handed down orally???

----------
What Jesus says about tradition:

Mat 15:2 Why do your (Jesus') disciples transgress the tradition OF THE ELDERS? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
Mat 15:3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment OF GOD by YOUR TRADITION?
Mat 15:4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
Mat 15:5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou might be profited by me;
Mat 15:6 And honor not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment OF GOD of none effect by YOUR TRADITION.

Mar 7:2 And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashed hands, they found fault.
Mar 7:3 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands often, eat not, HOLDING THE TRADITION of the elders.
Mar 7:4 And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.
Mar 7:5 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not your disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?
Mar 7:6 He answered and said unto them, Well has Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honor me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
Mar 7:7 Howbeit IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, teaching for doctrines the commandments OF MEN.
Mar 7:8 For laying aside the commandment of God, YOU HOLD THE TRADITIONS OF MEN, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
Mar 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well YOU REJECT THE COMMANDMENT OF GOD, so that you may keep YOUR OWN TRADITION.
Mar 7:10 For Moses said, Honor thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
Mar 7:11 But you say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou might be profited by me; he shall be free.
Mar 7:12 And ye permit him no more to do anything for his father or his mother;
Mar 7:13 MAKING THE WORD OF GOD OF NONE EFFECT THROUGH YOUR TRADITION, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

Mark 7:10 identifies Moses writings as scripture which they were to obey.

You ignored my question to you AGAIN.
Within the Abrahamic theology ... do you believe that Jesus would want you to be a Catholic, a Protestant, a Muslim ... or a Jew???
That's a simple question.
I would suggest ... a Jew ... wouldn't YOU?
----------
I didn't see that question.
Jesus would want me to be a follower of His. As He is Christ, that would mean He wants me to be a REAL Christian. Christ-ian (like).
Like Himself.
KayMarie
So within your warped estimation of theology ... Jesus the faithful Jew would want you to be a REAL Christian ... which to you means Protestant???

You're a fool to your own folly!

You make a mockery of all Jews the world over.

That is comparable to claiming that the pope wants you to be a Protestant rather than a Catholic.

Silly people and their silly self-serving dogmas.

<quoted text>Oh my goodness..... You sure don't know my purpose. Maybe you should look in the mirror to see if your nose has grown. The Church does not go by *its*. You need to know that what you post about the Church is very wrong, She is a wonderful place . She never judges others unlike you. I love my Church because she is the only place to receive Christ through the Eucharist. I love to visit Christ during Eucharistic Adoration, which is a great experience. I live surrounded by farmers, the priests families are farmers. Farming is very hard work and its not a sin to call what animals leave behind. I know farmers that are so holy and deep into their faith. Yep, they call animal droppings by the real name and no one comes close to the farmer's holiness Christ loves them and me very much.
So what does the farmers swearing have to do with you posting that you know priest that swear using the BS word in its true form?

Within the crazy theology ... faithful Jews would have no desire to kill Jesus ... unless he had the urge to branch away FROM pure Judaism.

The only ones that would WANT to kill him, would be the ones who refused to follow him and his pure undefiled Judaism ... and that would be the Christians ... who immediately changed the religion to one that was totally foreign to Judaism.

All those centuries of Christians slaughtering Jews as "Christ-killers" was meant to take the focus off the REAL criminals ... the break-away Jews ... who in turn were the first to call their selves Christian.

You went to a Catholic grade school that followed the Roman rite mass and Roman missal. This is because they belong to the diocese of Rome. Hence, Roman Catholic.
If you grew up in North East Minneapolis and attended St. John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Church, you would NOT be Roman Catholic. Do you understand that now, Rose? Not wouldn't be ROMAN Catholic. Nobody in that Catholic Church calls themselves Roman Catholic. But they are just as true as the other 23 Catholic Churches. Got it now?
You need to start embracing things you learn instead of clinging on to lies.
----------
But the Vatican is at Rome. Votes for Pope take place there...Rome is HEADQUARTERS OF THE CC.
23 Catholic churches??? Are you saying that Protestants aren't the only ones who are divided?

It was not by chance that the term temple was changed to "church."

It was not by chance that that the term Rabboni for Jesus was changed to just PLAIN Jesus.

It was not by chance that the name Simon Barjonah was changed to Peter ... the first pope ... although the Catholics did make a big mistake by stating that the first pope was a Jew. That meant that a supposed faithful Jew became Saint Peter of the Catholics.

Mother of Jesus ... Mary ... became a Catholic saint.

Lies everywhere ... in plain sight ... for those that WANT to see!

let me spell this out to you one more time and then the subject will be closed on my part. NO PRIEST OR MAN OF THE CLOTH SHOULD BE SWEARING IN FRONT OF THEIR MEMBERS OF THEIR CHURCH. Their are suppose to set an example for their church. They are suppose to live as Christ like as possible.They are the teachers, leaders of their flock.The are suppose to spiritually guide us and how can they do this for us if they are just swearing up a storm living a common life as you and me.

The Church didn't change from Roman to something else. The official name was never Roman Catholic Church. Roman is an adjective describing the diocese of Rome and the rite. If you grew up in the West, you most likely belonged to the diocese of Rome.(but now a days that's not always the case). Don't you remember the Roman missal with the Roman Mass??

This is why it makes zero sense when fundamentals try to pass the Roman Catholic Church off as a separate body.'the Whore of Babylon' also makes zero sense. Fundamental arguments that the ROMAN Catholic Church corrupted Christianity and the ROMAN Catholic Church banned the Bible and the ROMAN Catholic Church deviated from the word of God. Roman Roman Roman Roman. Lol
What about the Maronite Catholic? Orthodox Catholic? Syrian, Oriental, Ethiopian, Ukrainian, Coptic Catholic??
Like Roman, those are adjectives describing the same Church, the Catholic Church.

By the way, when men are hung by the neck until death, they automatically ejaculate.

Apparently it was a foresight by the creator and thought by hairy ape-like humans to be a special part of the creator's plan.

It is confusing. I'll agree to that.
Catholicism for the Catholic was once really really simple. You went to Mass and received the Eucharist. Now you're being challenged on every little inch of your faith. There is no stone that the fundie hasn't looked under. Like pesky little demons, they try to undermine every little aspect of your faith in an attempt to prove the Church wrong. Its very rewarding for me to see the CC pass every little test with flying colors. The fundie does not win on one single point.

The Pope is the sitting head of the Catholic Church. His diocese is Rome. So although you belonged to the diocese of New York and obeyed that local Bishop, you still (along with that Bishop) followed the diocese of Rome.
I hope I said that correctly. I'm not a scholar on this stuff. If another Catholic sees it differently, I'll welcome the info. I wouldn't feel ashamed because I know two Priests who see it differently. Regardless though, the official title of the Church is NOT Roman. Its Catholic.
