Wow. Yeah, he said essentially the same thing you said, like it was singing to his ears. The BIG difference between you and the pope is that YOU came on here stirring up trouble by mocking him when you were wrong in what you were mocking him about.
You still won't admit it. You're one of the more stubborn bigots I've ever come across. But you have no problem with bigotry as long as its directed at the Catholic Church. Kay, you talk a good game, but your heart is far from God.
**********
Bigot? You Catholics certainly are nasty. My Protestant parents, ministers and teachers told me that Jesus leads us to holiness speaking.
I DID write that I was mistaken on that verse...but of course you didn't see that one...

BTW, saying "you Catholics" is a classic bigoted statement.

Why were you miserable and lonely? Do you think that every Atheists is miserable and lonely? Maybe you think most of us are just too stupid to realize how miserable and lonely we are.
When I attended church, the feeling that if I forgot to ask for forgiveness for one sin, god would send me to hell to be tortured forever, was a pretty miserable feeling!
No, I don't think everyone who does not know Christ is miserable. But I do think you are lonely and empty and unfulfilled. That is the way Christ created us. We are created with a 'void' that only He can fill. Sounds as though you were in a church that did not understand the GOSPEL and the mercy and forgiveness of Christ. That is too bad. I can certainly understand why that would give you a bad taste for C hristianity. But what you must come to grips with is that that the 'feeling' you got(whether this is what the church taught or not) is not consistant with the scriptures. So it would be an unfortunate choice to reject Christ and Heaven because of a "feeling you got".

The bread and wine do not turn into the literal body and blood of Christ.
Catholics oftern say thier view is supported by Luke 22: 19,20, where Jesus told the disciples that the bread and wine are His body and blood.
BUT notice that Jesus was 'physically present' with them when He said this. OBVIOUSLY He intended His words to be taken figuratively.
Jesus often used figurative language. In fact, at the end of His upper-room discourse, He acknowledged this: "These things I have spoken to you in 'figurative language'(John 16:25. This is consistant with His intended meaning of the Lord's supper: "do this in rememberance of Me" Luke 22:19.
Jesus came to earth and took on human flesh. That human flesh is not omnipresent. When Jesus walked this earth as a man He was subject to the limits of physical flesh.
As theologian Millard Erickson notes, "To believe that Jesus was two places at once is something of a denial of the incarnation, whih limited His physical human nature to one location."
Not brave enough to address my posts directly? That's ok, I know you're struggling with it.

who="Aviela" Hello Blacksheep. JW do not believe in the trinity. The word trinity is not in the Bible. The trinity belief came from the pagans. You cannot kill God. Jesus is the son of God. The Jews killed Jesus because they said he was a blasphemer calling himself son of God. None in Bible times ever thought he was God.
**********
So JW's are Jews?
KM
The Bible draws attention to the fact that there are Christians who are Jews spiritualy and who make up "the Israel of God.

"look into His face"?!?!?

I was brought up in the church.
I know, it wasn't the right church.
They didn't teach the true gospels.
I didn't really give myself to god, I need to try harder....
I've heard all the excuses. It is bs. Pure bs.

"And non-Catholic Christians, like yourself, believe is something very close to this in terms of our justification before God through Christ Jesus. For, as St. Paul says in Scripture, "In Christ, we are made into a 'new creation'." Now, clearly, this does not apply to our form our "physical properties", since we don't look any different; and the world does not see any obvious physical change in a person when he or she becomes a believer in Christ. However, according to the words of Scripture, we know that a metaphysical change HAS taken place that the former sinner has been re-created in the image and likeness of Jesus, and is now a new creation. Ergo, the metaphysical substance has changed. Truly, wholly, entirely, and substantially. And this is all we believe when it comes to the nature of the Lord's Supper (the Eucharist)."

Bigot
: a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance
You didn't just make a mistake about the verse, your hatred and disdain for the pope and the Catholic Church was the reason you posted the insult of the pope to begin with. And it was out of ignorance that you didn't know what the verse was.
And still even now, you obstinately refuse to acknowledge the motivation for your post. Yes Kay, you are an ignorant bigot. And it is not a Christian attribute. You talk the talk, but your behavior is shameful.

**********

Self portrait, Anthony? You know NOTHING of what I am. But you announce your wicked imaginations against me with out shame BECAUSE you have to defend the CC. One would think that they are 'god' to you.

Here's the feeling that I got... I was sick to my stomach after I read:

When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property.(Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)

I was certain that the christian/jewish/muslim god was modern mythology, but after reading that, I could not imagine my parents would believe in such a god! Parents who taught me that slavery was wrong! Parent who taught me that murder was wrong! Parents who taught me to take responsibility for my actions was right! Then to read that!

Then I read about Lot and what he did to his daughters!!

Do you mind me asking what teachings you didn't like? Was it the trinity, burning in hell forever? Give all your money to the pastor, folks speaking in tongues? Sounds like you are searching for truths but haven't found satisfying answers. I don't mind answering your questions if you let me:oD ...seriously give me a chance. Just don't call me the *B* word:o)

who="preston" lets see some of the "proof" that you supposely have about President Obama being a communist. I am certain that it would have come for the National enquirer, which would be your speed.
and I am not rich, nor do I pretend to be. Bob seger would consider me UMC.lol

'nor do I pretend to be'? You've mentioned your income a number of times.

I don't read the National Enquirer. If you can't see what is going on, you are willingly blind.

Wrong again, as usual 4GVN, which is "nothing" new to any of us Catholics on this forum...... Deception, lying, and distortion of the truth is a "monopolistic trait" " from which you and other bible only Protestants have become "experts" at, as you attempt to deceive others while you "foolishly" are deceiving yourselves!!
Defend it??? YES!!! Against people like you and other condemning,judgmental, anti-catholic bible only "bashing" Protestants whose "main purpose" is to provoke, instigate and incite arguments, hatred and anger on this forum against the personal faith and Salvation of other Catholics and against Jesus Christs One True Apostolic Catholic Church.

You're angry that one of "those CATHOLICS" called you out for your shameful behavior. If I was a protestant, you'd have admitted it a long time ago. That's fine Kay, I know what you are, and your response tells me you know it too.
