The fact that you indentified them as frauds so long ago tells me that you have a pretty discerning eye when dealing with people like confrinting and his wife. I have never seen people throw out so many accusations and so much slander while being so obviously ignorant of the facts. I think they have some real deep issues.

You ask a question that has one confirmation of a decent answer Clay.THE BIBLE told me so! We can confirm our faith in Christ through the written Word,it confirms our faith,and when we come up with some weird doctrine,go to the Bible and look for it there,if it is not there don't receive it into your s p i r i t.We play it much safer as we allow the boundaries of Holy Writ through the WORD to confine us to the real truth.

By the way we should not add to the Scriptures,even if it is only meant for REVELATION. For no one has the authority to change the Bible in its present form.Who has that right? If the RCC started to tear out segments of Scripture,would you accept that? If any institution of Christian endeavor tries to change the Word of God or add to it with another book or segment,they should be admonished and kept from doing so.If we want to share some spiritual nugget from some other source than the Bible,just read it and enjoy it separately,do not try to incorporate it into the Bible.

The Bible stands alone as the Inspired Word of God,honor it as such.If Clay your church wants to carry the Book around with holy reverence that is wonderful,but do not on the other hand try to diminish its majestic message and power in the Living Church by mocking those who choose to live by it soley and as the only confirmation of Christian doctrine!

I never lied about the nun. You didn't prove any thing. You repeated the assumptions of others about what I said...NOT what I said. That is where you made the lie.

After your statement the other week that you're "not a trouble maker", I find I'm less offended by your lies than your intentional effort to make this nun, the pope and Catholics in general look bad. You have made several posts that in the end didn't have the effect you were looking for and it shined a light on the fact that you are indeed looking to stir up trouble.

Would you stop the kkk from burning a cross on public property? Most people would, since most people know it is a symbol of hate. You are not smart enough to realize that your cross is a symbol of hate as well.
I wouldn't stop the klan from doing anything most of those guys carry guns and its better to call the police than get shot. I hate the klan and the black panthers and the skin heads and anyone else who is racially motivated.
As for the cross at worst you could make the argument that we use it as an idol. It is the everyday reminder that Christ came and died for everyone's sins. The crucifix can be the symbol of his death and the empty cross the knowledge he ISN'T DEAD HE IS ALIVE AND IN HEAVEN. Every time you see the cross hear us pray read the money of our country see people going to church or hear the church bells ringing remember two things Jesus is alive and nanny nanny boo boo you don't have to like it.

Wrong the time frame insicated he was born later october or early September. Count 6 months back from the time he was crucified. He was crucified in the middle of the week the last 7 years of the time determined on Daniles people. he would have been 33 and half years old at the time of the crucifixion.

Couple clarifications.
I don't 'mock' people who choose to live by the bible alone.
However, if one is going to trash the Catholic Church based on Bible alone.. Then I'll gladly point out the lie of sola scripture.
You're smart enough to see the baseless doctrine of sola scripture, right Pad?
Look, I'll acknowledge many peoples being led to Christ by using the only resource they got. The Bible. Christ doesn't forget about the victims of Martin Luther. He loves everyone of us.
People who venture into challenging Catholics on Christianity, are getting into a fight they cannot win. Its much better if they just try and be the best
Christians they can be by studying scripture.

That's why it saddens me to see a few on here who would have been better off just being a Christian. Now what do they do once they been exposed to the lies of Sola Scripture and Sola Fide? Well, we can see what some are doing....they're playing stupid.. Acting like they never heard what they just heard. Being ignorant.

Can you answer these questions:

If Christ started a Bible as His sole source of authority on His teachings, please provide a verse explaining this.

Since you and others reject the Catholic Churchs claim on how the Bible came to fruition, could you for once offer an alternative scenario?

If it is suppose to be Sola Scripture as Christs will, then who's interpretations are valid?
If it is to be sola Scripture, wouldn't you think the Apostles would have already explained those letters??

I have had enough of it,I am glad that in heaven snow is not one of the features of our eternal reward.

Well I don't get out in the snow anymore like I use to Pad.
Though I love the snow, and watching the kids skate and slide and having fun in it.
My thing is camping,boating and fishing. I don't hunt however couldn't shoot an animal.
I have had people from the States come up here in July and wanted to know were all the snow was LOL, I just told them they had to go a little farther north.

The Vietnam vets
Vietnam Vets were often treated Badly and unfairly due to the unpopular nature of the war.
The Vietnam Vets
The decision to enter the Vietnam War was at first received with much support from the Australian public. However, it soon divided the nation with the introduction of conscription. As media coverage soon began to show the true nature of the war, Australians began to change their minds. They felt that the war was unnecessary and the mood soon turned sour. In 1969 Prime Minister Gorton made the decision to stop sending troops into Vietnam, and by 1972 Australian troops were pulled out altogether. The reason that Vietnam Veterans were received and treated so badly is that the war was undesirable and Australians did not want to associate themselves with it.

veitnam vets. Cont
Canada as well didn't enter the war because they didn't trust the reasoning for the Vietnam War given by the American Government.
The American soldiers believed in their government and served bravely to protect those back home. They were unaware of the media coverage of sit-ins by students with 'Love Not War' signs everywhere. It was the first time in American history that the a high percentage of the people of the U.S., used freedom of speech against the war that they felt was unnecessary and the media did a great job of propaganda showing pictures of soldiers crying, holding children, bodies of American soldiers, and then in another media coverage showing the ugly side of what the American soldiers were doing. The soldiers were simply doing their duty and no one could understand the horrors of what these men were going through. They saw their friends blown to hell and wondered when their own number would be up. Many of them became drug addicts, alcoholics just to survive.
