How funny your are in your garb of Gnostic "secret" knowledge.
If it's a secret ... you can't know it any more than can others ... unless of course you are SPECIAL and have been given messages in secret that others can't hear or know.
WOW! You have a high opinion of your self.
If you were to examine any of my posts - I've not once - stated that it is secret. That would be the Catholics and Protestants placing a label on information and knowledge that has always been in plain view for them to read. Plato for one was around alot earlier than Jesus. Hindu texts - same thing.

There is no secret......oh wait....it is....to the followers of Christianity there is....BECAUSE....their leaders refuse to show and explain them to those followers. SO sort of - it is a secret to those people.

Event the Gnostic gospels have been around to the public since the 70s....so that is no secret.

Again - there isn't any secret....people just like to label things in this way, to scare others.

Fear - a very visible aspect of Christianity to keep their followers enveloped in that belief.

Yeah right. The inqusitions never happened? What a dolt.
Rev 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

You bible only "fundies" have a "convenient way" of inserting the word "Catholic" into the book of Revelations (whenever and wherever) it (neatly) fits your anti-Cstholic Protestant propaganda" fictitious and man-made beliefs......Bible only anti-catholic bashers are like St Peter before he has his true conversion to Jesus Christ!......"You---just like Peter---keeping (fishing) and continue to catch NOTHING!........

You 42,200 contradicting and inconsistent Protestants (bible only's) are the ONLY ones that "perspire and sweat" with each one of your fictitious bible verse "man-made" conflicting self-interpreting doctrines---who have never--nor will ever ---agree on what is the True interpretation........Protesta nts sure know how to "dish out" the attacks on the faith of other Christians (especially Catholics) who don't agree with their " man-made"-----make-it- up-as-you-go-----editorialized interpretation of "each bible verse" -------however-----since todaysCatholics are no longer "sitting passively" and putting up with this "fictitious"bible only ----(hot air)---nonsense of yours --- your bible only boat of confusion, chaos and contradiction begins to " sink" faster than the rate of which the Titanic went down!!!!!

Who knows what u believe... judging from your previous barrage of slander propaganda articles, you'll believe anything- so as long as it trashes the Roman Roman Roman Roman Catholic Church! And btw, you know nothing about the Catholic Church in Rome. If you knew, you'd be Catholic . Err i should say: if you ALLOWED yourself to know.
Im not doubting that our Scriptures sparked something in your heart, and you became a better man as a result.....but I don't get why u now think your an authority on the Sacred Scriptures; why are YOUR interpretations the 'Word of God'??

Here's some Bible history.
-
The Bible states, about Holy Spirit:
http://biblehub.com/niv/hebrews/10.htm
15The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says:
16“This is the covenant I will make with them
after that time, says the Lord.
I will put my laws in their hearts,
and I will write them on their minds.”

-
Here's your church's history:
-
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad_extirpanda
So, hojo, YOUR Church's spirit is NOT Holy for IT has said the Laws are written by the Pope, and HIS laws were torture and murder heretics!
-
TWO different concepts, here.
-
If I had not read some of the history of the Catholic church AND the Bible and realized the utter contrast of the two ... I would likely still be Catholic.
Until you come to the TRUTH of TRUE Salvation in Jesus Christ in and through His One a True Catholic Church------from over 2000 years of TRUE Apostolic Church History ---AND---the TRUE interpretation of the bible from the Early Church Fathers in 382,393 and 397 AD "who wrote the bible"-----Who correctly interpreted it--------These 21st century modern day"hack historian" author sources of yours will CONTINUE to "dupe " you bible only's further and further into the doldrums of more and more chaos, confusion, distorting of TRUE Church History , more Protestant Lise and more anti-Catholic deceit!!!!

The catholics killed Christians and Jews in the first century. Why doesn't historical fact ever fit into your "truth"?
Oh boy. I think your "historical facts" are twisted. Here is what a Catholic and disciple of the Apostle John had to say: "wherever the Bishop appears, there let the people be; as wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church. It is not lawful to Baptize or give communion without the consent of the Bishop, therefore whatever has his approval will be pleasing to God, thus will be safe and valid".

As someone who is catholic and was raised in the faith, I find this truly offensive that the Pope would make a statement like this. It is making me seriously consider leaving the church. As long as popele believe in God and the holy trinity, why does it matter whether they believe as catholics, methodists, lutherans, etc? I think Benedict has gone too far with this statement and I do believe it is going to hurt the catholic church in the long run.

Since Catholics claim to have preserved the Scripture -is there any conflict here between Scripture and Church Father instruction?

No conflict at all, Yon. They equally flow in harmony. Even though the Church came before the Bible and it took the order of Bishops of the Catholic Church to come up with the list of Books for the Bible, the Sacred Scriptures are just as important as Sacred tradition.
But lets keep it real, the Bible doesn't interpret itself. So no matter what, for protestants, JW'S, and all other sects in between, It STILL comes down to your interpretations. If it don't jive with what the Apostles verbally communicated, then its not the word of God, it's 'the word of Yon'.

I don't preach to anyone - unless you think asking questions and asking others to support their belief is preaching.
In your more honest moments, you have admitted that you didn't know if Jesus even existed.

Then, in your following posts, when preaching at the Catholics and Protestants about what THEY believe, you insist that they don't know what Jesus said and that you DO know what he said.

I've also suggested to you directly - that you only left religion about 5 years ago. You refused to admit this truth, even when you have expressly stated it yourself .
I've never disagreed with you or anyone else about when I left religion.

I'm 75, and I left the last remnants of religion behind when I was 70.

You say there is harmony and the church came before the Bible, why then weren't the words of the Church Fathers and Sacred Tradition considered Scripture before anything written and now called New Testament? Show us the harmony please between the Sacred Tradition instruction on Baptism and Scripture.
