I was using language a non-Catholic would understand....
I mean what is the point of using a "foreign" language/concept unless to communicate?
So to the Catholic I would say Purgative/Illuminative/Unitive ..., which are state of the soul on its journey....
Pilgrims Progress, by John Bunyon to the non-Catholic would consider the soul on its journey as well....
There are a lot of similarities....
I like that Colossions 1:24 verse....It really shows that we need to participate in our sufferings toward the Church....
Ok, but I have not seen many protestants on a journey. Salvation is not a process its an event. How someone who claims to be a preacher can say sanctification has nothing to with any suffering is beyond me. However nothing will ever be satisfactory for 4bdn because the view of sanctification/justification are not the same. For him/her its all done. The do not understand the churches teaching on grace. It will always boil down to what Paul and James were saying. That was a major shift. What do Catholics know they are the whore of babylon and those early Fathers were all daft according to those in here. I am done with them, but its useless to talk about purification from someone who claims they are completely pure. Its all done. They read some words one day and thats it.

"For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, resulting in sanctification." (Rom 6:19)

For you know what commandments we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality.(1 Thess 4:2-3)

Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also vessels of wood and of earthenware, and some to honor and some to dishonor. Therefore, if a man cleanses himself from these things, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work.(2 Tim 2:20-21)

The one who says, "I have come to know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.... if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us.(1 John 2:4-6; 4:12)

Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and let the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and let the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.(Rev 22:11)

Romans 5:3-5 And not only this, but [we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; 4 and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; 5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us (What!?) Suffering? Tribulations? Does what!?

2 Thessalonians 2:13

But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

Now, Clay, you have borne false witness against me, by accusing me of violating the 9th commandment, and according to your Catholic Commandments as printed on this web site, that would be:
9. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife

Now, I never! First of all, my neighbors wife is really not my type! and second the reason she's not my type - is I prefer the company of a man.

Furthermore: as per your question, I ask the same of your church members -- and ... you might well ask your church hierarchy the same question.

But, look at THESE commandments while considering the Pedophile priests and those (church hierarchy, all the way to the Pope) who covered up for them.

7. You shall not commit adultery

they rape children and then LIE about raping children?

I don't get it. I told you what official Catholic teachings are concerning the ten commandments. Yet you ignore it, and post a web page with 'catholic' in the title, and say "look, there it is, I told you so"
You're a con artist.

1. Are you aware pedophilia is no more rampant in the Catholic Church, then YOUR church!
Bingo you worthless fraud.

2. Why do you single out the Catholic Church?

3. If we're not the Church that Christ started, then who is?
You can't answer that without looking stupid. So I'll let you come up with another cult pamphlet to post.

When you're interested in actual truth instead of cult deception then come talk to us.

I'll promise you the same thing I promised Confrint.

I'm willing to leave the Catholic faith tomorrow, if you could somehow persuade me that the Church is wrong and you are right.

But here is the kicker: you're not allowed to use deception. I will look into whatever you tell me... If it doesn't check out, I can't follow you.

Example: if you say 'sex abuse scandal'..
and my research shows its the same numbers in YOUR church as mine and in YOUR family as mine- statistically speaking, then I'll dismiss you.

If you say "Catholics worship statues".. And I - being Catholic - knows this is not true- I will dismiss whatever cult you're trying to get me to join.

If you speak truth, then it should be a piece of cake to get me out of Catholicism
Your move.

If any of ya could come up with a religion that DIDN'T rely on falsehoods about another Church, I would take you seriously.
The fact is, you guys only exist because you stole the Catholic bible and put a false label on it. Then you turned around and smacked the Catholic Church over the head with it using your 40,000 interpretations.
Heck, if I left Catholicism, I couldn't reasonably choose one of you over the other. You all can't function without lying about the Catholic Church!

Signs of a cult:
-
Every cult has a single powerful human leader. In fact, all cult leaders will proclaim themselves a god on earth. Do you recall Jim Jones? or Charles Manson? They both proclaimed themselves to be Jesus Christ. Did you know the Pope does this as well? Listen to what the Pope's of Rome have to say in that regard

"The Pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ, he is Jesus Christ himself, hidden under the veil of flesh." Catholic National July 1895.

"For thou art the shepherd, thou art the physician, thou art the director, thou art the husbandman, finally thou art another God on earth." Labbe and Cossart's "History of the Councils." Vol. XIV, col. 109

The title "Lord God the Pope" is found within a gloss of Extravagantes of Pope John XXII, title 14, chapter 4, In an Antwerp edition of the Extravagantes, the words, "Dominum Deum Nostrum Papam" (Our Lord God the Pope) can be found in column 153. In a Paris edition, they are found in column 140.

"The pope is the supreme judge of the law of the land ... He is the vicegerent of Christ, and is not only a priest forever, but also King of kings and Lord of lords"--La Civilta Cattolica, March 18, 1871.

I dont know I would go with anyone? ;-) However the Mantra on this thread is Catholics are not Christians. You do realize Preston doesnt believe God hears prayers of Catholics and but of course the Church is the Whore of Babylon. However his understanding of Justification/sanctification is not the Catholic understanding. I have no desire to speak with him. In his mind he is this great preacher and Apostle. Fine,but is foolishness to argue with a fool who exhalts himself in imaginary victories. The reality is he has withstood nothing nor swayed anyone as he constantly boasts about everything. Sorry, but the guy is a complete loon and I have no intention of feeding his Narcissism or giving him the attention he so desperately needs. I shook my sandals of him long ago.

But let’s say salvation was a done deal. Is our sanctification instantly accomplished? Some Protestants say Catholics don’t understand the difference between justification and sanctification. They say justification is instantaneous, and sanctification is a lifelong process. Even granting this, the final step into heaven would require us to be perfectly purified and made completely holy through Christ’s grace, since the church in heaven, where "nothing unclean can enter" contains holy and perfected people (cf. Matthew 5:48; Hebrews 12:14, 23; 1 Thess 5:23; Eph 5:26f; Rev 21:27). So we DO "need to be purified" according to Scripture (cf. Mal 3:2-3; 1 Peter 1:6-9; 1 Cor 3:12-15; Hebrews 12:29), and Christ's one sacrifice is the application of that final purification and sanctification necessary for heaven -- which Catholics call "purgatory."

The cult leaders word, or teachings of the cult become absolute truth over shadowing the Word of God. In fact, ALL cult leaders declare their traditions are above the Bible. They must do this because the Bible exposes them. They need to make the Bible appear fallible so as to ingrain the thought process that makes man’s word appear superior to God’s Word. What does the Vatican say about their tradition?
-
"The Pope has power to change times, to abrogate laws, and to dispense with all things, even the precepts of Christ. The Pope has authority and has often exercised it, to dispense with the command of Christ." - Decretal, de Tranlatic Episcop. Cap.

"...the church is above the Bible, and the transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact" Catholic Record of London, Ontario Sept 1,1923.

"The authority of the church could therefore not be bound to the authority of the Scriptures, because the Church had changed...the Sabbath into Sunday, not by command of Christ, but by its own authority." Canon and Tradition, p. 263

(82) As a result the Church, to whom the transmission and interpretation of Revelation is entrusted, "DOES NOT derive her certainty about all revealed truths from the holy Scriptures alone. BOTH SCRIPTURE AND TRADITION MUST BE ACCEPTED AND HONORED WITH EQUAL SENTIMENTS OF DEVOTION AND REVERENCE. Catechism of Catholic Doctrine Page 31

"The Scriptures indeed is a divine book but it is a dead letter, which has to be explained, and cannot exercise the action which the preacher can obtain." -Our Priesthood, p. 155

They also state that the Bible is a…

"...A dead and speechless book." -Roman Catholic booklet entitled “Question Box”, p. 67

"The doctrines of the Catholic Church are entirely independent of Holy Scripture." -Familiar Explanation of Catholic Doctrine, Rev. M. Muller, p.151.

Each cult uses force to coerce its members into submission. Most cults today will use high pressure tactics to get people to not only join them, they also resort to extreme measures to make them stay. They do this mainly because they know the loved ones of their converts would eventually reveal their hidden evil agenda to them causing them to leave the cult. Is there evidence to support the fact the Roman Catholic church tries to use force to convert people to Catholicism?
-
"For teaching faith contrary to the teaching of the Church of Rome, history records the martyrdom of more than 100 million people ." Brief Bible Readings p. 16 Harvest Time books

"There was no village of the Vaudois valleys but had its martyrs. The Waldenses were burned; they were cast into damp and horrid dungeons; they were smothered in crowds in mountain caverns, mothers and babes, and old men and women together; they were sent out into exile in the winter night, unclothed and unfed, to climb the snowy mountains; they were hurled over the rocks; their houses and lands were taken from them; their children were stolen to be indoctrinated with the religion which they abhorred. Rapacious individuals were sent among them to strip them of their property, to persecute and exterminate them. Thousands of heretics" or Waldenses, "old men, women and children, were hung, quartered, broken upon the wheel, or burned alive and their property confiscated for the benefit of the king, and Holy See."-Thompson - The Papacy and the Civil Power

"The Catholic Church has persecuted ... when she thinks it is good to use physical force she will use it... Will the Catholic Church give bond that she will not persecute?... The Catholic Church gives no bonds for her *good behaviour*." -Western Watchman, Dec. 24, 1908 (emphasis added)

"On August 24, 1527, Roman Catholics in France, by prearranged plan, under Jesuit influence, murdered 70,000 Protestants within the space of two months. The Pope rejoiced when he heard the news of the successful outcome."-(Roman Catholic publication) The Western Watchman, Nov.21, 1912

Foxes book of Martyrs reports Rome killed over 500 MILLION Christians during their prophecied attack on Christ and His bride.
-
The reason Rome killed these Christians is widely known. Even recently,(March 12, 2000) the Vatican admitted they did this to Christians thinking they were doing God’s will just as Jesus predicted they would think.

John 16:2-3, "They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me."

They thought their forceful methods would bring many into the church. It’s true, they did bring people in, but those people were weak and fearful of Rome torturous acts and they denied Christ merely to save their lives. Sadly, Jesus said in Luke 17:33, "Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it." Many went to Christ-less graves simply because they chose to do as Rome demanded over what God commanded. However, there were many that will see a better resurrection because they trusted the Jesus of the Bible and exposed the Antichrist of Rome all the way to their graves.

continued from previous post:

And by the way, for those of you that think it’s impossible for Rome to kill 500 million Christians during its 1260 year prophecied reign. Which was from 538ad to 1798ad. Let’s do the math shall we? If they only killed HALF of the 70,000 as that article said they killed every two months, that would actually equate to, Rome killing only 210,000 Christians each year. Or, 2,100,000 every 10 years, or 210,000.000 every 100 years. But history proves, and Rome admitted, to killing for 1260 years. So, if we are gentle in our math and state Rome killed only 210,000 a year, even though they admitted to killing twice that already in writing. That would equate to them easily killing well over 2,520,000.000 innocent people over the course of 1260 years. And that’s not counting those they killed spiritually. So, the next time someone shows you historic evidence that Rome killed a mere 500 Million during their 1260 year first prophecied reign, it will seem a bit more easy to believe now won’t it?
