WHY WAS IT THAT YOUR POPE
DID NOT SEE A BURNING BUSH AS MOSES DID?

NOT LIVE
BY THE BIBLE THAT YOU CLAIM YOU WROTE?
It's YOU
that does not live by Bible teachings, when was the last time you had Holy Communion? As Jesus ordered!!!????

Our first Pope, Peter was present when God sent the Holy Spirit ..... On the day of the Pentecost, when our Church started.

Acts 2:1-47

When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven.

Acts 2:1
When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place.

Had the Catholics created their own personalized god rather than trying to steal the emotions of the Jewish god, they might have set a precedence for the Muslims and the Protestants to also create their own images of gods.
Instead, all of the dumbed-down factions tortured, and killed each other over who the one god loved.
And to this day they keep on with the insanity in the name of universal LOVE.

June,

What made you come to the conclusion the the Catholics were the first Christians? As a non-believer (and since you reject all religion the charge can't be made that you are partial to Catholicism over protestantism), there must be some body of evidence that caused you, a self-professed realist, to conclude that the Catholic Church was the first Christian Church.

There WERE no Jewish apostles to recommend Christianity as the upcoming religion.

That was all ex-Jew Catholic lies.

Imagine such a stretch of imagination ... claiming that John the Jew of the old testament hundreds of years later landed as a Catholic saint in the new testament.

That's comparable to claiming that the Jesus of the new testament landed hundreds of years later as a Mormon saint in Joseph Smith's "Restored gospel of universal truth.".

It's the same story CON-veniently told by the Protestants.
"Jesus would NEVER consider being associated with Catholics ... because the Catholics were and are far too evil. That is why Jesus waited for the Protestants to arrive on earth to bestow on them the one and only universal truth."
And you have your own personalized story. Jesus doesn't approve of any religion. He travels lite in spirit with you wherever you choose to take him.
Silly indoctrinations for silly people.
By the way, which "God" do you believe is Jesus' real father???
OH never mind ... No matter which title you "hang" on him ... he LOVES your HOLY spirit that is aligned to his HOLY spirit.
BWAAAGGHHH!!!
Jesus practiced Judaism. He preached and Taught about Freedom from ALL RELIGIONS. Religion was Bondage unto self, SELF is where you had to be Free..
He didn't practice Catholicism. He wasn't Catholic..
Kingdom Of God/Heaven is within you..

What source supports "So when Jesus chose to leave Judaism as being a VILE religion"?

The Bible is the result of the Holy Spirit inspiring men to write Scripture...none of which were Catholics...because there were no Catholics until about 400 years after Christ ascended..

The Athanasian Creed says in part "Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the Catholic Faith" which is a lie per Scripture...

Quote:
But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.

And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

About.com Catholicism
Christ's Baptism Foreshadows Our Own:
At first glance, the Baptism of the Lord might seem an odd feast. Since the Catholic Church teaches that the Sacrament of Baptism is necessary for the remission of sins, particularly Original Sin, why was Christ baptized? After all, He was born without Original Sin, and He lived His entire life without sinning. Therefore, He had no need of the sacrament, as we do.
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.
Many of the Fathers of the Church, as well as the medieval Scholastics, saw Christ's Baptism as the institution of the sacrament.

If you have any doubt about that issue ... ask the Jews in Israel if any of them converted to Catholicism because your pope "visited" them.

I suggest they will tell you that they were not impressed by his religion OR his "visit."

According to ALL Christian theology ... Jesus left his position as a Jewish rabbi ... beause he thought that Judaism AND the Jews were VILE ... period!!!
Within the theology ... had he placed any value on Judaism, he would have corrected the wayward Jews such as the first Catholics and Gnostic Christians and said ... "Come to me and learn how HOLY Judaism can BE in its true ESSENSE."
But because the Jesus-myth was created by the Catholics ... the story WENT that Jesus wanted the Jews slayed for not joining the Catholic religion as did Jesus.
Comprehension June..
He never denounced Judaism..
He taught his "own church" Spiritual Freedom from bondage.. He spoke of a deeper meaning and purpose to life..
Show me verse and chapter where he denounced Judaism..
He was definitely upset what they had turned His Fathers House Into..

You can bet that pope Francis didn't visit Israel to tell the Jews that their religion was and is based on universal truth.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>

The primary declared purpose of Pope Francis’s visit was to meet in Jerusalem with the head of the Christian Orthodox world, celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the first meeting of reconciliation between the two separate (and for most of history, mutually hostile) strands of Christianity.

No I not arguing it at all. I've not seen your explanation before and I'm just curious as to how an atheist who has no horse in this race can come to the realization, yet these protestant evangelical fundamentalists seem incapable of it.

Lies of omission are lies ... period.

For instance ... within the "captivating" theology ... when was Jesus' mother Mary baptized into the Catholic religion??? Was it before Jesus became a Catholic saint ... or after???

Silly nonsense.

She would lived as a Jew and died, having been totally faithful TO Judaism.

Per wikipedia and most history scholars, the Church was called Catholic well before St. Ignatius called it such in AD 107. Why are so many non-Catholic sources admitting it and you can't?

Ignatius was Catholic
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>

There is something called Judaism and there is something called Christianity, and true Christians will make sure that what they believe and what they do, is in fact Christianity and it's not Judaism. That is explicit and unambiguous for the very first time in the writings of Ignatius around the year 110 or 120 B.C....

This version of the Catholic Bible is also known as the Ignatius Bible since it is published by Ignatius Press.

>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>

An important milestone into development of Christian self-consciousness or Christian self-identity will be the emergence of the word "Christianity." This word appears for the first time in the writings of a church thinker of the early 2nd century of our era named Ignatius, who lived in Western Asia Minor, modern day Western Turkey
