Many of the Old Testament slaves were members of the wicked and sinful nations.
These slaves were given to the Israelites for their immorality.
When you understand slavery in the Old Testament, come back and we will talk about it....

Purging is the final act of sanctification of suffering. They say that it was all done and absolutely nothing is required of you. Sin just disappears and Christ made a sacrifice for never ending sins. However the bible doesnt say that. The traditions engrained by Luther, Calvin and Zwingli and their continued variations do.
Most and every Protestant on this thread has no idea what the Church teaches, nor what the council of Trent said nor do they care. Paul Never, Not once Ever! Uses Faith Alone together. HOwever James does when he says, "NOT by faith alone."

but if everyone depends on the knowledge of your church fathers who lived 1800 years ago, then we will remain as they were and not according to what the Bible tells us according to Daniel 12:3-4

and if you think that purging is what God is calling sanctification, you havent even learned from them.

Sanctification is a growing process,and it is a Blessing certainly not any suffering involved, and not some time spent in an unknown place made up by unknown people at some unknow time.
Sanctification is the act or process of acquiring sanctity, of being made or becoming holy. "Sanctity" is an ancient concept widespread among religions, a property of a thing or person sacred or set apart within the religion, from temple vessels to days of the week, to a human believer who achieves this state. To sanctify is literally "to set apart for special use or purpose," figuratively "to make holy or sacred," and etymologically from the Latin verb sanctificare which in turn is from sanctus "holy" and facere "to make."

now throw out some of your garbage in your hissy attitude, that only you possess, thank God for that.

4GVN good friend

Thank you, on agreeing with me....

I desire to answer your questions, and I am not quite sure of what issue you have....To me it seems you think of the RCC in one way, and others in the RCC think another, concerning the RCC. This comes down not to belief, or the strength of one's convictions, and proving to self or God of one's righteousness.

It is about loving one another....

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....

I like:

But if this charge is true (that she wasn't a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her fathers house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father's house. Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst.(Deuteronomy 22:20-21 NAB)

It shows that the bible was written by men to control other men. They didn't want fathers to get a virgin bride price for soiled goods.

You posted a cult link this morning falsely accusing the Catholic Church of removing parts of the ten Commandments. Then, LTM bought into it. I proved the Catholic Bible has the same amount as yours. I showed the catechism stating the commandments how they were given, removing nothing. I testified that I learned the Commandments in Catholic grade school exactly like the book of Exodus shows... Thus you are now guilty of violating the 9th commandment and creating a victim in LTM.

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.

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:

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.
