Wacky theology

God wants us home in his realm of perfect creation. That is why he allows hell and evil and the devil to exist.

Hey Oldcly, Sola Scripture makes more sense than ever before. Thank you.

Who is this "we" you are referring to? The Roman Catholic church? You and they are so full of it. You and they are a part of satan's deception. FYI here are the first TWO paragraphs from the website I referenced in my quote listed above: http://christiananswers.net/q-eden/sola-scrip...
The sixteenth century Reformation was responsible for restoring to the Church the principle of Sola Scriptura, a principle that had been operative within the Church from the very beginning of the post apostolic age.
Initially the apostles taught orally, but with the close of the apostolic age, all special revelation that God wanted preserved for man was codified in the written Scriptures. Sola Scriptura is the teaching, founded on the Scriptures themselves, that there is only one special revelation from God that man possesses today, the written Scriptures or the Bible.
He, like you, are bible idolaters.

He says: "the 16th century reformation was responsible for restoring to the Church the principle of sola scripture, a principle that had been operative within the Church from the very beginning of the post Apostolic age"

What?? First of all, that's ridiculous. There is absolutely no evidence that sola scripture existed prior to the 16th century. Then he says the reformation restored the principle of sola scripture? What principle? Y'all made that idea up.
YoungJG, you and him have nothin in common with the 16th century sola scripturist anyway, nor the 17th & 19th century sola scripturist.

Given the fact of how the bible developed; historical fact, scientific fact, archeological fact; it should be blatantly obvious there needs to be more than just scripture. It took an authority outside of scripture to declare,'these writings are inspired'.

And for the life of me, I can't understand why you all continuously misrepresent the Catholic faith. Why do you do that. Why do you need to do that?
Look in the mirror and ask yourself why the pastors you follow have to misrepresent us.

From the book … The Invasion Within … The Contest of Cultures in Colonial North America by James Axtell.

Like their Jesuit rivals, the best English missionaries quickly caught on to the need to employ homely metaphors to adapt the novel Christian tale to native experience. The classic argument for God’s existence from design took the form of “a great Wigwam,” built not by “Racoones or Foxes” but by a “wise workman.” A native basket woven of black and white reeds was made to assure the Indians that God heard their prayers as clearly as Englishmen’s. Satan was already known to the auditors as Chepi, the matchemanitou who tormented them with misfortune by day and frightening appearances at night.

Let's debate theology.
From your perception ... did Jesus stay faithful to Judaism ... or did he choose to deny the religion to in turn become a Catholic???
To us, its not necessarily two separate religions. To you it is. But you're atheist, so who really cares if one or the other is wrong in your eyes.. A faithful Jew would tell you to your face that your going to eternal hell.

So yes, in my perception, Jesus stayed faithful to Judaism by picking up the cross and getting sacrificed at calvary.

You are dishonest Robert. You know full well that the Catholics believe that Jesus was baptized by John in the river Jordon into Catholicism. If that were not so ... all Catholics would have stayed faithful to Judaism.

The Baptism of the Lord
In submitting Himself humbly to the baptism of St. John the Baptist, however, Christ provided the example for the rest of us. If even He should be baptized, though He had no need of it, how much more should the rest of us be thankful for this sacrament, which frees us from the darkness of sin and incorporates us into the Church, the life of Christ on earth! His Baptism, therefore, was necessary--not for Him, but for us.

I am really sorry. I don't understand.

Yes. Jesus was baptized in the Jordan by John the Baptist(the greatest of all prophets, because he saw the whole of prophecy fulfilled in Jesus)

But no..., Catholics do not believe Jesus was baptized into being a Catholic by John the Baptist. You will be very hard pressed to find even one extreme-extremist Catholic who would believe or write down something like that.

However, Jesus(as you write, and I agree) is an EXAMPLE) of going down in death, and rising again, for Christians in his baptism by John, to fulfill the Will of God, and to begin His ministry....

Belief in Osiris, Isis, and Horus later spread to the Roman Empire, until believers began to be persecuted under Christianity.

Five centuries before the supposed birth of Jesus, the Greek historian Herodotus traveled to Egypt. There he witnessed an enormous festival, held every year, in which the Egyptians performed a drama before tens of thousands of people, representing the death and resurrection of Osiris. This story is so ancient that it can be traced back to pyramid texts written over 4,500 years ago.

As far as we can tell, Osiris is the original story of a dying and resurrecting god. The story spread to Ancient Greece in the story of the god Dionysus, then to Ancient Rome in the story of the god Mithras, and then to Christianity in the story of the god Jesus. Along the way it appeared in several cultures under various names.

You are either very dumb or very obstinate ... or maybe both.

You were once a Protestant, then a Catholic, then you dabbled in Buddhist ... then you were an Atheist and once again you are a Catholic.

That bespeaks of a man who is totally confused concerning what to believe.

I was in religion and then became an Atheist because all religion made no sense whatsoever to me.

We have a choice. We either accept that all religion is based on lies ... or we believe that the religion to which we personally belong is the only one that preaches truth.

I finally accepted that all the theology I was taught as a child was based on lies, and that is when I cut all the ties that previously bound me to some of the mind-SETS of theologians.

I now believe I am whole and relatively decent ... just as I am.

Surely you jest!

Observe, as the Catholics took the image of Rabbi out of Jesus.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>>

To the Christian disciples of the first century the conception of Jesus as Rabbi was self-evident, to the Christian disciples of the second century it was embarrassing, to the Christian disciples of the third century and beyond it was obscure.

The beginnings of this de-Judaization of Christianity are visible already within the New Testament.

Dear John preached that Jesus considered the Jews as enemies that "according to Jesus" needed to be slayed.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >

Although such beasts are unfit for work, they are fit for killing. And this is what happened to the Jews: while they were making themselves unfit for work, they grew fit for slaughter. This is why Christ said: "But as for these my enemies, who did not want me to be king over them, bring them here and slay them".

And the Catholics referred to their new anti-Semitic testament as the HOLY BIBLE!

"Kill the Jews and become faithful Catholics. Then the God that used to favor the Jews as his chosen few, but now loves ONLY Catholics, will LOVE YOU."

What a lot of nonsense. And what a lot of bloodshed followed the nonsensical teachings that were preached as being based on truth.

You know nothing about Jews and Hell.

Sadly, you don't even care. You really should learn more about Judaism, but it might test your faith. So you slander Jews willingly.

No problem. Those dang Jews killed Christ anyhow, and in your immoral world, collective guilt and collective punishment make sense.

Not to moral people, but to you and your sick god, it does. Sick.
