You have every right to mourn the death and loss of your beloved husband.
But I take umbrage at your preaching that Nick is in heaven ... because I am fully aware that you believe in hell for the majority of the world's population.
And that belief to me is very VERY nasty.
I don't believe that my family is in hell for not belonging to your Protestant religion.
If you want cruel ... I suggest that you think about all the people in other religions that DO believe that your Nick is now in eternal hell for not belonging to their religions.
On the other hand ... I believe that wherever Nick is ... he's at peace.
Now do you get my drift???
WITCH!!!

4.... Great indeed is Our trust in Mary. The resplendent glory of her merits, far exceeding all the choirs of angels, elevates her to the very steps of the throne of God.[1] Her foot has crushed the head of Satan. Set up between Christ and His Church,[2] Mary, ever lovable and full of grace, always has delivered the Christian people from their greatest calamities and from the snares and assaults of all their enemies, ever rescuing them from ruin.

Comforting Arms

Dr. Stephen Davy

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.(Matthew 5:4)

There is a vivid memory etched in my mind—a day when one of my sons hugged a tree in our back yard. The tree had a "ladder" of nails driven into it, and he used them for climbing. I was about fifty yards away, watching and admiring the athletic prowess of my son, as he hung from the first branch eight feet from the ground. But his foot slipped off the nail and I saw his body swivel around to the other side of the tree.

As he held on to the trunk with one arm and wrapped a leg around the tree, he yelled for help. I began walking toward the tree, but in his moment of distress, he didn't wait for me to arrive. Typical of the very young, he hadn't yet discovered that sometimes it hurts more to let go than to hang on, so—he released his hold on the branch. He slid down the trunk and skinned himself on every nail protruding from the tree. A long bloody gash stretched from his waist to his chest.

He hit the ground, immediately bounded up, and came running. His feet were moving so fast that he even fell once as he ran. When he reached me, he leapt into my arms and began to wail. I just held him and hugged him, because I knew he was experiencing more pain than he had ever felt before. Although I am not a great father—in fact, sometimes, I'm not even a good father—I did what comes naturally to any parent witnessing his child in pain... I comforted him.

Why is it that we think God will do any less for His children? Why is it that we think God groans when He sees us coming to Him in pain? We assume He is thinking, "Oh, no... you're hurt again?" If we, as fallen, sinful, earthly parents can comfort our children in times of distress, whatever the cause, how much more will our perfect heavenly Father comfort us in our distress—whatever the cause?

The word for comfort in Matthew 5:4 is not sympathy, which means to feel with, or empathy, which means to have experienced the same thing and feel with, but a combination of two Latin words which mean to put strength in; to infuse with power.

This means that God doesn't just pat us on the back when we are in mourning; He gives us what we need to endure the pain of sadness. It's as David said in Psalm 138:3, "On the day I called, You answered me; You made me bold with strength in my soul."

Have you fallen from any trees lately? God will lift you up—blood, tears and all. So go ahead ... wail to Him in your sorrow; cry to Him in your distress; jump into His arms of healing.

Your Father is waiting to hold you close to Him. Then you will learn what Christ meant when He said, "Blessed are those who mourn ... for they shall be comforted."

The bare fact IS that anything you take from a Christian bible was first meant to make out that Catholicism was universal truth.
The Catholics compiled all the data in the new testament for their own USE to hold against others as heretics.
You were not supposed to horn in on Catholic dogmas and twist them to your own advantage, and try to make out that the Catholics were and are the heretics.
Martin Luther took full advantage of the Catholic bible in that VERY way.
Dishonesty will get you nowhere.

You were wrong in claiming Ignatius first used the term Christian.

Acts predates Ignatius' letters and claims the term was used decades before its writing.

And you are wrong about Luke being a Catholic, since that term first was used by Ignatius in the surviving record, and history records the actual rise of the Catholic church much later.

Pretending does not make it so, child, any more than pretending I'm a Protestant makes me one.

Strange how that works, eh?

How many times have you been told that there is "NOTHING" to argue about----NOTHING to debate and NOTHING to discuss...... The"fullness of the Truth and the fullness of the faith".. Has, is and will ALWAYS be firmly grounded and manifested in Jesus Christ (in and through) His historically and biblically "proven" One True Apostolic Catholic Church-----as it has for over 2000 years...... Arguing, debating and discussing ANYTHING historical or biblical with bible only Protestants, agnostics or atheists is a "total waste of time".-------That is the only reason why non-Catholics have come on this forum---to argue, debate, discuss and "desperately try to disprove" 2000 years of the FULLNESS of the TRUTH and the Catholic Church established by Jesus Christ Himself with one of their 42,200+ contradicting bible only.
....How! Many times have you said 42,201...nothing to discuss!
... How! Many times have you said protestant man made contradicting! Nothing to discuss.
....How many times have you said half truths bible only! Nothing to discuss.

....Why doesn't Liam respond to your posts? Why doesn't Anthony/Regina, Dust storm have dialogue with you?.
...Nothing! To discuss, could that be the reason?

These are the tricks people play.

Martin Luther needed the Catholic bible to start his new religion

Had Martin just claimed that a god was telling him these new ideas, people would have laughed at him.

He was a very cunning operator. He took words written by Catholics for Catholic use only ... and twisted the words in such a manner as to turn the words AGAINST the Catholics.

How was that for being CUNNING???

And the Catholics committed the same atrocity against the Jews.

You're right, I'm wasting my time. I mean no one receives salvation when they are 3 months old because of their parents' faith. You got to have salvation if you're in the discussion about losing it eh Tony....have a good day
