I can't find your article on BCN.
BTW, can you give me book, chapter and verse where the angels are singing at Jesus's birth?
Who's really adding to scripture Kay?
**********
Easy: Luk 2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
Luk 2:9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
Luk 2:10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
Luk 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Luk 2:12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
Luk 2:13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Luk 2:14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Luk 2:15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
Note verse 13. Todays BCN.
Cute...you call me Sapphira, but "I" am making trouble?

The pope said the angels were not singing. My bible doesn't say they were singing. Your KJV doesn't say they were singing.

Yes, Sapphira, you are stirring up trouble.

I don't see anything about singing here. Perhaps you misunderstood Anthony's request.

According to the pope's research, there is also no evidence in the Gospels that the cattle and other animals traditionally pictured gathered around the manger were actually present.
Pope debunks Christmas myths

He also debunks the claim that angels sang at the birth, a staple theme of Christmas carols.

The book, which is being published in multiple languages in time for Christmas, is the third in a series by the pontiff. The previous two volumes dealt with Jesus' adult life and his public ministry.

Alessandro Speciale, Vatican correspondent for the Religion News Service, told CNN the pope was not so much aiming to debunk myths as trying to show that the Jesus depicted in the Gospels is a real historical figure, who walked on earth and talked to people like anyone else.

But while the book points out that the Gospels do not support the presence of animals at Jesus' birth -- a detail apparently added in later centuries -- the pope does not suggest they should be thrown out of the Nativity scene, Speciale said.

"The pope is a traditional man and he doesn't want people at all to change their traditions," Speciale said.

The Vatican quotes Anthony Valle, a professor of theology, as saying the pope has been open to scientific inquiry in his own study of Jesus' life.

"The pope is not against the historical critical method at all, in fact, he uses it, he appreciates it," Valle said.

He sees the pope as using "both faith and reason" in his efforts to bring the life of Jesus closer.

Monsignor Philip Whitmore, who translated the book into English, said the pontiff used his writing to explore "the inner meaning of the infancy narratives, showing how they pick up on Old Testament themes and develop them in new and unexpected ways."

"The pope helps us to understand the world where Jesus was born. Caesar brought peace to the Roman Empire, but this tiny child brought something much more wonderful: God's peace, eternal life, an end to sin and death," Whitmore added.

"Anyone who's wondering why Christmas came to be such a great celebration in the West can find the answer right here. The pope explains how the birth of Jesus changed history forever."

Most Protestants have the misunderstanding that whatever a Pope says even if he prefaces it with an opinion is changing the gospel. lol Yet, their ministers very very often say in my opinion, you may disagree etc. Scholarly work is of no importance.
According to at least one protestan source albeit biased against the church the Pope was merely saying that he believed the Angels spoke not sang and that it was believed that their voices were like song. He did not say it never happened nor was it in the gospel. That would be a fair statement, but since I have not seen the exact quote forgive me for not trusting secular and protestant tabloids as we have seen them so accurate so often in here. ROTFL
I have no problem with "Hark the Herald". I love the idea that they were singing, but it's sad to see sola scriptura protestants blasting the pope when they're following an unbiblical tradition of their own. lol. Hope you have a blessed Advent.

Just another example of the Born Again movements undoing of sacred scripture based on their limited and ignorant understanding.
Also, what do you care? You're an Atheist.

Michael says...How does it become clear Clay? Why put away your modern english bible? Is the bible wrong when it states..

1) "brothers of Jesus sons of Mary"

2) Is the bible wrong when Paul says "JAMES THE BROTHER OF THE LORD"

3) Is the bible wrong when it states Jesus FIRST born son of Mary. That means more children.

4) Is it wrong when it says is this not the son of the carpenter and all his brothers are with us.(lol)

5) Brothers are mentioned James, Joseph, Jose, Judas,

Catholics are caught up in this perpetual virginity of mary and the only way they try and save face is to state the BIBLE IS WRONG!
Thats not good!

excuses excuses excuses!

Clay says.....

All of Christianity for the first 1,800 yrs. Including Orthodox and Protestants understood Jesus had no blood siblings.

None of these people lived when Jesus supposedly lived. If Jesus lived his entire life a JEW wouldn't the Jews know best? They lived with him.(lol)

Catholics are hell bent on this perpetual virginity of Mary and are caught up and painted into a corner.

I have never seen so many twists and turns to make the story anyway you want it to turn out the way you want it.(lol)

hojo,you may not worhip an idol of a calf,or a god that is foreign to the LORD our God,but any statue of Jesus is clearly breaking the first commandment.Jesus is G O D,is He not?Any image of Him is a false representation of WHO and what He is as being part of the Godhead,and that most of all He is the fulfilment of the Godhead,B O D I L Y.

That even moreso should not allow the people of God to make an image of the Fulfillment of the Godhead Bodily.The RCC has broken the first commandment and continues to do so every time it produces images of Jesus,Mary and anyone else that is connected with faith in God,the ONLY ONE who told His people to never make a graven image of such things or of people that represent the Living God.

I know all the arguments of statues that Catholics attempt to use to validate their breach of the first commandment of God.But that is sad and no matter how many centuries and years have gone by,the RCC still disobeys the LORD,God of Israel with the production and selling of i m a g e s that falsely represent Yeshua,Adonai ha Moshiach. If a church institution cannot get past the first commandment without disobedience,how can they be the only true and Apostolic church?

Hey jethro8,
According to followers of the Catholic Church, Jesus gave them every authority to do whatever they wanted to do and whatever happens to strike their fancy at the time -- and no-one is allowed to question this. They can even torture and murder heretics in Jesus' name if they so desire, because Jesus himself gave the Pope the authority!
-
Imagine that! The Pope AND his ardent followers - can do acts of horror that would most certainly make the Devil proud and claim that Jesus authorized them to! Then they can turn around (sometimes immediately and sometimes years later) and say "OOPS! we made a mistake and the individuals who did *those things* were evil and most certainly non-Catholic."
-
Yet they claim an UNBROKEN chain of popes going back to the time of Peter himself.(And everybody knows that some popes were so evil they would make even the devil blush.)
-
So. In an unbroken chain of popes - how can some be deemed as non-Catholic AFTER they are dead and buried, and yet at the same time, claim that there is an unbroken chain of popes?
-
Catholicism is nothing but double-think. It has to be. And because the truth is not in them. They can't handle the truth.
the apostles did not have eternal life and either do the popes,why is that? wouldn't it make sense to keep them alive to spread the true meaning of gods word? well the popes couldn't do it,but the apostles could of since they were in jesus' presence,and from 1st pope linus to date,none of them ever spoke to either jesus or one of the apostles.they use some truth,but it is twisted and turned to coincide with paganism.

You were stirring up trouble like you always do, in this case, it was mocking the pope when you were ignorant of the facts. When someone is always in the attack mode they tend to have their blinders on. You should pray a little before you toss out the next insult.

REGINA M. says......According to the pope's research, there is also no evidence in the Gospels that the cattle and other animals traditionally pictured gathered around the manger were actually present.

What research?? The only writings about the virgin birth are in the gospels. Can't you read them and decifer what they say? No jews, no one from the entire mediteranean, no writers, scribes, statesmen, government officials, soothsayers, or philosophers ever mention the birth of a Jesus.
There is no other sources of information to do "RESEARCH" about the birth of Jesus.

The popes research...(lol)

The whole story about Jesus is just a christian tradition. Much like any other religion that has their action figures and characters and stories about them. Stories that you wouldn't believe, just like your stories that they don't believe.

TRADITION with a lot of fiction.....

As to animals in the Nativity scene, though they are not specifically mentioned, WOULD NATURALLY BE IN A STABLE.

One sideline Protestant group is protesting Christmas,too, by saying that He was not born in a stable.

They say that the word "inn" means 'guest room', so Jesus was born in the 'guest room'.

One only has to read more carefully to see that "there was NO ROOM in the INN (guest room)".

There is a war on against Christianity, and Christmas in particular.(An old pagan holiday???)

A whole host of angels praising God in the sky would be music to me.

Not Biblical? Examine every one of the items used for the Christmas celebration, and you will see that each of them 'fits' the scripture. Even the colors (red and green) were what John the Revelator saw when he saw the throne of God.
