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.

Vrede

Conjecture is the result of a suspicious mind. It pains me deeply.

I am not involved in today's modern news. Although I still seek out modern scientific discoveries. I have pretty much put history as regurgitated modern news as well. More supposition than fact. More conjecture....

Then where did the folks,from Olam Haba, go after the resurrection when they walked in Jerusalem ...presumably united with their souls,in Resurrection bodies.
For us,our RESURRECTION bodies come when JESUS comes..but our souls?
Who did John see??
The thief was,to be WITH JESUS,...so does that mean Jesus,is,in a,place that is,NOT heaven...called paradise??? That doesn't make sense..
Where are the martyrs under heavens,altar and singing saints seen BEFORE the tribulation by John.?? In heaven
Just saying ..I believe Jesus,opened heaven..with mansions,He promised to the apostles and the saints...

It is good to ponder on one's death. And it is better to take care of today's problems than worry about after death....There are, it seems to me, different places within God's Kingdom for us to be. And the closest we get to God is through Jesus.

It would seem to me, that most are "raptured", and return with Jesus.

Focusing on Jesus, as one's daily bread. Our prayer was given to us by Jesus....Our Father who Art in Heaven.....

So when Ted Kennedy died is was an excommunicated catholic?
Good question..I don't think so because he applied and got an annulment against his wife's wishes ..got remarried as a Catholic..despite being liberal for Choice issues , I believe .

One has to assume he,confessed about killing Mary Joe...and God does forgive, yet he was VERY LIBERAL....for women's "choice"

To HIS CREDIT
I have to say the Pope when Kerry was,running(I think ) made a,point that
pro choice politicians should not be ,allowed communion.and told Catholics in essence to vote the least likely to be for murdering babies

It made a,difference at the polls THEN..since then the American Catholics vote liberally at least half of them do...allowing for more murders...and the pro-choice pols got elected .....

When Christians,join TOGETHER we CAN make a,difference .....

Not that I know of. I'm also not aware that he had an abortion or assisted in giving a woman an abortion. I do know that he was visited by a priest several times during his last days and we should assume he made a sincere confession as that would have been required to receive Last Rites and absolution. He was a disgrace to the Church (as are Pelosi and Biden and other pro-abortion Catholics), in spite of the opinions of some weak bishops, but God is merciful and He gives us all an opportunity to repent before we face judgement.
My question for the OSAS protestants out there is; How do you respond to pro-abortion protestants who say they're OSAS?
People can SAY anything ..Pelosi and Biden SAY they are,Catholic ...had an honored,seat at the Popes,mass.

The one thing I'd think any practicing Christian can agree on should be abortion..promoting it is,wrong..period ...but also not in the heart of a,person who has,Jesus, in his,heart.

Can a,woman be forgiven for having an abortion...Yes..as,He forgives...and the worst crime of abortion is,the damage it does,to the mother imo ...the babies,are cruelly murdered ..but with Jesus,....mom is,another story. Despite what the movement wants,to project..

Biblical truth? No. Tango Bravo truth? Sadly, yes.
Why doesn't the Bible address this "mystical" Mary you speak of? Why is the Bible, the Word of God completely silent about the "Roman" Mary?
Tango Bravo wrote:
<quoted text>
If your version of "scripture" doesn't mention the mother of Jesus at all you have a very poor version.
OK, Tango Bravo, provide a BIBLE translation that describes Mary as follows:

1. Perpetual virgin
2. The queen of heaven
3. The mother of God
4. Assumption into heaven
5. Immaculate conception
6. Co-redeemer
7. Mother of the church
8. Sinless
9. Co-mediator

That's a stupid analogy. Adults have free will, an egg and sperm do not.
Of course it exonerates the Church, but we do it for pastoral reasons in order to bring them to repentance and to renounce their error, not as some sort of condemnation to hell as is so often the case in protestantism.
When you guys throw someone out of your community they go down the street to the next protestant community or start their own with new rules. Shameful.
So a,woman who has an abortion...swallowing the lies..is excommunicated..but pro abortion politicians are NOT ..those voting AGAINST the pain Legislation trying to restrict it at least to 20 instead of 24 weeks...that was just this,past year...all those,libs,...saying babies,feel no pain at 24 weeks.....an abomination much worse than some desperate woman or child who commits,a grievous,sin to be sure ..but SHE'S EXCOMMUNICATED???? And they aren't ???

The,pols are responsible if they vote to keep those late term abortions,legal ...EVERY last child killed gruesomly....and for every one of them..they have helped lead the mother to sin..

I read what you said on the bible hub, Marge..the part about ascension was confusing..I'm not sure what you believe..but as,Kay just wrote...the faithful were resurrected when JESUS went to claim them..one can assume they are not still walking around..and are in heaven with Him.
He told the thief he would be with Him in Paradise that day ...God is,Father Son and Spirit ...so it's,possible the thief was the first to enter heaven of the SOULS redeemed by Christ's death ..
At the time He spoke of no one ascending they hadn't but did after Him.
Moses and Elijah WERE on the mountain however ...I'm not sure how that worked ..but hope I get to ask in light of Jesus saying ..no one had ascended..they may have come from Olam Haba.
Mysteries of Our Lord ..who is awesome
----------
Moses and Elijah WERE on the Mt. of Transfiguration with Jesus, and they were 'transfigured' with Him there.
The Bible doesn't say that the dead saints, who arose and walked about Jerusalem when Jesus ascended, went up with Him. It does say that departed saints are 'under the altar' in heaven and they were told to rest a little while longer. Apparently they were not at liberty until their fellow servants and brothers were there...and the whole church (body /bride of Christ) was complete.
Rev 6:9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne.
Rev 6:10 They cried out with a loud voice, "O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?"
Rev 6:11 Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been.
Moses and Elijah may be part of that group in verse nine.
Joh 3:13 "No one has ascended into heaven except he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man." Paradise (the bosom of Abraham where Lazarus was) was apparently in the earth, and the righteous dead were there. It was 'in view' of hell. The rich man could see Abraham and Lazarus, and they could see him.
The New Testament tells us that 'the dead in Christ will rise first (from the grave), then we which are alive (and they) will be changed (to the glorified body) and will be 'caught up'(raptured) together to meet Him.'
Did not Jesus free the souls in Olam Haba??

Jesus,did ascend soul and body..but what of souls who died in Christ ..the thief is,with Jesus ...Are they not also??? Their SOUls ..the mansions,...at the time JESUS,said none have ascended ..he had not YET arisen..

I think He opened heaven or maybe a,part of heaven until the end when we,are,all resurrected ...

So what, they can say what the want, things will not change.
Why do you care?

Priest will remain celebrate, even though we have many converted ministers that are married. They will be replaced when they retire.

Birth control if fine if it's done by "natural means" that will not change.

Women clergy will not happen, Jesus choose men to continue HIS Church.

Divorce Catholic that have remarried can go to Mass, but can not receive Communion.
That will never change.

The Pew questioned people by phone.
They should try going to Mass on Sunday and do the survey.
It's a wonder they came out with those results...

The survey you posted...

"A combination of landline and cellphone random digit dial samples were used. In order to increase the number of 18-to 33-year-old respondents in the survey"

LOL!!

You do not answer the questions and begin the second grade name calling to alter the conversation. The fact remains you have no answer for the questions asked. The "Roman" "mystical" Mary you venerate (worship) is not contained in the pages of God's word, the Bible.

Here is a list which describes the "Roman Catholic" "mystical" non-existent Mary. This "Roman Catholic" "mystical" Mary does not appear in any Bible. If she does PUT UP OR SHUT UP. I am from Missouri.......SHOW ME.

Regarding birth control
"The Catholic Church is not oppose to birth control when it is accomplished by natural means, by self control. She is opposed only to birth control by artificial means, by the employment of pills, condoms, IUD's, foams, jellies, sterilization, non-completion of the act of sexual union—or any other means used to prevent conception from resulting from this act, because such means profane the marital embrace and dishonour the marriage contract. God slew Onan for practising contraception (Gen. 38:9-10); the word "onanism" derives from Onan's

deed. In fact, up until the Church of England's Lambeth Conference of

1930, which accepted contraception and thus broke with the Christian

tradition, contraception had been considered wrong by all Christian

churches. The Catholic Church does not feel free to change the law of

God, as do Protestants.

"Why do Catholics worship Mary as though she were a goddess, when it is clear in Scripture that she was not a supernatural being?

Catholics do not worship Mary, the Mother of Christ, as though she were a deity. Of all the misconceptions about Catholic belief and practice, this one is the most absurd. Catholics are just as aware as Protestants that Mary was a human creature, and therefore not entitled to the honours which are reserved to God alone. What many non-Catholics mistake for adoration is a very profound love and veneration, nothing more. Mary is not adored, first because God forbids it, and secondly because the Canon Law of the Catholic Church, which is based on Divine Law, forbids it, strictly forbids adoration of anyone other than the Holy Trinity. However, Catholics do feel that Mary is entitled to a great measure of exaltation because, in choosing her as the Mother of Redemption, God Himself exalted her, exalted her more than any other human person before or since. Catholics heap tribute and honour on Mary because they earnestly desire to be "followers of God, as a most dear children." (Eph. 5:1). Mary herself prophesied: "For behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because he that is mighty, hath done great things to me: and holy is his name." (Luke 1:48-49). Catholics know that every bit of the glory they give to Mary redounds to the glory of her divine Son, just as Mary magnified God, not herself, when Elizabeth blessed her.(Luke 1:41-55). They know that the closer they draw to her, the closer they draw to Him who was born of her. In the year 434 St. Vincent of Lerins defended Christian devotion to Mary this way: "Therefore, may God forbid that anyone should attempt to defraud Holy Mary of her privilege of divine grace and her special glory. For by a unique favour of our Lord and God she is confessed to be the most true and most blessed Mother of God." Today 75% of all Christians still hold to this same view."

Paul NEVER mentions Mary in any of his writings? If Mary was so important to the early church, as Roman Catholics suggest, why doesn't Paul address her importance. In fact Paul does the exact opposite. He NEVER mentions her. NEVER.

Apparently Mary was not very important to Paul was she?
