Refrain (sing twice after verses 4 and 6)
We are one body, one body in Christ;
and we do not stand alone.
We are one body, one body in Christ;
and he came that we might have life.

When you eat my body and you drink my blood,
I will live in you and you will live in my love.
When you eat my body and you drink my blood,
I will live in you and you will live in my love.

Can you hear them crying, can you feel their pain?
Will you feed my hungry, will you help my lame?
See the unborn baby, the forgotten one,
they are not forsaken, they are not unloved.

I am the Way, the Truth, the Life, I am the Final Sacrifice,
I am the Way, the Truth, the Life;
he who believes in me will have eternal life.
I am the Way, the Truth, the Life, I am the Final Sacrifice,
I am the Way, the Truth, the Life;
he who believes in me will have eternal life.
(to Verse 4)

I have come, your Savior, that you might have life,
through the tears and sorrow, through the toils and strife.
Listen when I call you, for I know your need,
come to me, your shepherd, for my flock I feed.

At the name of Jesus ev'ry knee shall bend;
Jesus is the Lord and he will come again.
At the name of Jesus ev'ry knee shall bend;
Jesus is the Lord and he will come again.

On the rock of Peter, see my Church I build.
Come receive my spirit, with my gifts be filled.
For you are my body, you're my hands and feet.
Speak my word of life to ev'ryone you meet.

Php 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Since Scripture was inspired by the Holy Spirit, are you not calling Him a liar???
The keys to the kingdom of heaven:
The image of the keys is probably drawn from Is 22:15–25 where Eliakim, who succeeds Shebnah as master of the palace, is given “the key of the house of David,” which he authoritatively “opens” and “shuts”(Mt 22:22).
Whatever you bind…loosed in heaven: there are many instances in rabbinic literature of the binding-loosing imagery. Of the several meanings given there to the metaphor, two are of special importance here: the giving of authoritative teaching, and the lifting or imposing of the ban of excommunication. It is disputed whether the image of the keys and that of binding and loosing are different metaphors meaning the same thing. In any case, the promise of the keys is given to Peter alone. In Mt 18:18 all the disciples are given the power of binding and loosing, but the context of that verse suggests that there the power of excommunication alone is intended. That the keys are those to the kingdom of heaven and that Peter’s exercise of authority in the church on earth will be confirmed in heaven show an intimate connection between, but not an identification of, the church and the kingdom of heaven.
So says your pope approved Bible...it says nothin' about the "New Israel!!!!!
Why was the Apostle Paul so concerned about his Jewish friends?

As without Jesus, he knew they were lost.

Romans 10:1-4

10 Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved.

2 For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is NOT based on knowledge.

3 Since they did NOT know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did NOT submit to God’s righteousness.

4 ~~~~~Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.~~~~~

Spiritual.....

Spiritual.....

Spiritual.....

When God set the Israelites apart from all other nations, He wanted every one of them to be His people not just on a physical level but also on a spiritual level!!!!!

Old Testament Israel was a physical thing WHEREAS the CHURCH is a spiritual thing.

Now, who is the New Israel???

The New Israel,(Jesus' church,) is a spiritually defined people with whom God deals with mainly on a spiritual level (NOT a so-called church here on earth, physical but SPIRITUAL.)

Spiritual is definitely one way to describes the Catholic Church. But the proof of the Church also being a Davidic Kingdom with a hierarchy established by Jesus Christ is not only found in scripture, but historical fact too. Many of you seem to think there was various groups of elders with Bibles in their hands. And that's how Christianity spread. The truth is that it was and is a hierarchy; a infallible teaching magisterium. The keys were passed to the next generation after the Apostles died. Actually, it is believed that John was still alive while Clement held the office of Bishop of Rome and wrote with authority to the Church in Corinth. Either way, a person should really look into what actually happened after the Apostle departed. They left us with a visible hierarchy not a set canon of Books for elders to decide what the Lords ministry is. It stayed this way unchallenged for a millennium and a half.

What else do you expect Catholics to believe?

Within the theology, it's a given that Jehovah didn't start any Catholic or Protestant church.

The mythical Jesus was used as a PROP by the Catholics, simply to start a new religion.

You are a professional scripture manipulator.

However, even you, ought to someday start realizing that Protestantism does NOT align to Judaism, and that "within the theology" the ONLY god in the Abrahamic religion practices JUDAISM and nothing BUT Judaism.

Clay,
I have studied Catholicism for many years.
Some writings that I have read include Augustine, Aquinas, Bonaventure,Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Spellman, Kung (exiled but brilliant) Kempis,Congar,Hildebrand,Rahne r,John Henry Newman, Schillebeeckx,Merton,St John of the Cross,etc.
I studied in Adult Independent Study with a Franciscan sister for 1-2 years.(cant quite remember) She gave me much material on St Francis and we studied from a book "Christ Among Us" and a giant book "Catholicism".
I attended Catholic Mass for about 3 years.
I continue to read and learn.
In order to spot the lies in one's own religion, one must study all other religions with an objective attitude.

Otherwise your own religion will keep feeding your ego with the silly notion that YOU own truth.

Assyrian clay tablet points to 'Sodom and Gomorrah' asteroid

A Cuneiform clay tablet which for over 150 years defied attempts at interpretation has now been revealed to describe an asteroid impact which in 3123 BC hit Köfels, Austria, leaving in its wake a trail of destruction which may acccount for the biblical tale of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Within the Abrahamic religion ... that would be the first book written by the Jews that started the one-god dogma.

Even the Jewish literature that came after that first book, would have taken the literature off track to a different form OF Judaism.

And I have no idea which book was the first one-god dogma book of the Jews, because at one time, the Jews believed in the existence of many gods.

Why would any god in its right mind destroy the earth, if it believes that the humans caused the problems?

If the god was that angry, it could just get rid of all the humans, and leave all the other animals to keep on with THEIR daily suffering, as special entertainment FOR the god.
