The book was written to the Hebrews you moron. These people were not saved. They were Jews who were going back to Judaism. They had never accepted Jesus. Your reasoning is called reductio ad absurdum, in which a premise is disproved by showing that it logically leads to an absurdity.
Also, you like to pick on women. In my neck of the woods men who pick on women are sissies. Are you a sissy. Just say yes. It is obvious. For me it would be wonderful to see you face to face and talk to me like you talk to her. Get me boy!!!
OLDJG,

It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit,

"enlightened"....mea ns to have received the knowledge of the truth....

"have tasted of the heavenly gift"......this is a more personal experience, OLDJG....

What is this heavenly gift????

You have a wife???? And you gave her a car???? You probably talk to her like you do Marge. You are a worthless, spineless low-life who loves to pick on women. What does the Bible say about bums like you. I think they lined up to stone a prostitute and when a man stood up to them they ran like little girls which is exactly what you would do over here by me boy! Comprende

Too much power and wealth results in corruption.
Even "perfect teachings" on morals can't change that reality.
Even "perfect teachings" couldn't protect the children.
And Protestants use the CC "holy book."
Say goodbye to reason -- and believers can justify anything.

....,We now know this is the second money laundering Vatican bank scandal since 1985.

.....When Bernie Madoff was laundering money catholics were OUTRAGED!

....... When the Vatican bank does it catholics don't get mad at the church wrongdoing, they lash out at those that report this vital information.

What NT dates are you referring to and we all know that John, Peter and Paul witnessed Christ --- however the teachings of Jesus were the unwritten and orally past on to His Apostles...which were taught in the Early Churches beginning in Antioch, then Ephesis, Corinth ,etc.(Acts 2)......... Please show us (in the Bible) where Peter, James and John PUT the Bible together, as we know it today!!........ Documented,and authenticated recorded writtings by the ( overwhelming vast majority) of Church Historians confirm that the actual Bible, New Testament, Canon of Scripture etc. wasn't even compiled, formulated and put together until 382 AD..........It took over 350 years to gather and interpret the letters, documents, parchments, and manuscripts from the Apostles by the Early Church Fathers in 393 and 397 AD ( Who Put the Books of the Bible together) forming the canon of Scrpture!!!---There was no Bible "as we know it today" ( for the 1st 1500 years of the Church, until John Guetenberg invented the printing press in 1440 AD.......... You "really" need to read TRUE a Church History instead of relying upon a 21st century anti-catholic historian to "re-invent the wheel " or in this case "re-writing church history" ignoring 1500 years of the TRUTH of Jesus Christ and His One TRUE Historically and biblically PROVEN Apostolic (Universal) Catholic Chuurch!!!!
....What would God think about all the scandals and corruption going on in your church? He would be shaking his head in disbelief, yet you act as if nothing ever happened.

I bring the bad news. Bad news is what people like to read about.........but Only when its about someone else.

Chuck,

regenerated.......paliggenesia

new birth, reproduction, renewal, recreation, regeneration

hence renovation, regeneration, the production of a new life consecrated to God, a radical change of mind for the better. The word often used to denote the restoration of a thing to its pristine state, its renovation, as a renewal or restoration of life after death

It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit,

who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age

and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.

Regenerated means rebirth. It does not mean enlightened.

I think you would agree that folks all over sit in churches every Sunday and hear the gospel, even believe it...taste it but never ever but their faith in Christ.

Jesus was born of The Virgin Mary.
Both without carnal intercourse.
Catholics insist that Mary retained her virginity. 3 things:
1. Jesus was not caesarian born = vaginal birth cannel = Mary is no virgin.
2. Jesus had named brothers. No mention of their adoption. Important.
3. Mary / Joseph not legally married if it was never consummated by sex.
Buddha was baptized.

Buddha died - His coffin opened by supernatural powers - He ascended to Heaven.
Jesus' tomb was opened - He eventually ascended to Heaven.
Buddha was to return to Earth to restore order.
Jesus was to soon have a second coming.

Its religion that keeps the mobs from overthrowing corrupt governments?
You just keep on changing your TUNE Robert and you might one day be believe-able.

When you were an Atheist your tune was that religion was based on fear.

Now your tune is, that religion keeps governments from being corrupt.

The following book is based on a married couple who were Protestants and decided that Catholicism was the "only" way for anyone to attain "salvation."
>>>>>>> >>>>>>>

ROME SWEET HOME by Scott and Kimberly Hahn … our journey to Catholicism

Foreword

All conversion stories are different—like snowflakes, like fingerprints. But all are dramatic. The only story even more dramatic than conversion to Christ’s Church is initial conversion to Christ himself. But these two dramas—becoming a Christian and becoming a Catholic—are two steps in the same process and the same direction, like being born and growing up. This book is an excellent illustration of truth.

Chuck,

I would say that you would have to look at what is being tasted (for lack of better wording)....

It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit,

Look at what the scriptures say.....

those who have ONCE been enlightened.....

who have TASTED the heavenly gift.....

who have SHARED in the Holy Spirit.....

This is up front and personal.....

What are they NOW experiencing and receiving???

They are receiving the spiritual blessings of being in Christ!!!
