Where can we read all the writings from 'evangelicals' after the bible was written?
Oh and Anthony, you know we agree with some of the early writings outside the Bible and disagree with others, we don't have to go through that again do we?

Roman Catholic Infallible Teaching #4.... Jesus hates orphans.

Jesus wanted the RCC to enjoy diplomatic immunity ---
because Jesus didn't want them to get in trouble for child abuse at orphanages on three continents (at least).

Or, Jesus has nothing to do with these RCC clowns and doesn't hate orphans.

Yep, that's probably more likely, but don't tell any Catholics here that.

The evangelicals have always been Sola Scriptura.
Anthony do you believe the O.T. Scriptures point one to Christ?
Give me some examples of the writings of sola scriptura evangelicals from the time immediately after the bible was finished until, oh, about 500 years ago.

meanwhile, you and Michael bring up child sexual abuse EVERY SINGLE DAY, but your normal?
And don't ask me why Benito gave the Church their own bank account. How do I know?
Probably, because any income the Church compiled doesn't belong to Italy. Silly.
Does the Pentecostals have to turn their income over to Obama?? well, not yet anyway.
Not their own bank account dummy, their own bank.

And diplomatic immunity too.

Now calm down, stop obsessing about sex and try to make sense.

Two points to that. Either there is a helluva lot more catholics opting out of their marriages or the church has found a way to make some money on the side.
Yesterdays news was the Vatican is NOT accepting credit cards on Museum tours anymore $$CASH$$ ONLY. Why? Because the government of Italy has decided the catholic church has not got their MONEY LAUNDERING scandals under control.
Imagine a church laundering finances? Its not just the MOB anymore.
Catholics will blame me again for this bad news story........(lol)
Jesus was cash only too, so they'll just call it tradition.

So again, "only tradition" and certainly nothing to do with running a dishonest bank.

Just kidding.

We've never gone "through" it. The problem you have is that you want us to believe there were sola scriptura evangelicals after the completion of the bible, but you've never produced one shred of evidence. Here's your chance.

Although its not a couple rock bands..silly.
Its a whole culture shift in moral standards that - although always around in some capacity - was never on the level that began in the 60s and you know it.
Vatican II accelerated everything bad thats NOW going on in the church.

Conservative catholics of the day did not WANT change. Did not want VATICAN II.

Nuns divided up right away. Old nuns versus young nuns. Old school habits versus new casual look. Those stuck in the convent with little education,versus new younger nuns wanting an education and being able to work in society to help the poor, not stuck in dingy convents cranking out communion hosts, repairing priests ripped vestments, and cleaning toilets.

Priests mired in pre-vatican II policies versus new priests taught in Vatican II ONLY policies.

Today! 2013, nuns fighting with the vatican over the rights they were given 50 years ago in vatican II. Priests around the globe forming unions, upset with being treated badly by their bishops and wanting Vatican II policies to stay in place as they were taught. The pope wanting to turn back to pre-vatican II.......and catholics caught in the middle.

ITS A REAL CAN OF WORMS!

MICHAEL says........cash transactions are good! Money under the table. No paper trail. The vatican is catching on.

Jesus had no job according to scriptures. A late 20s something guy, just tripped around with 12 guys roaming big city downtown cores asking "hey buddy spare some change for a coffee"?

.....I forgot they only had wine back then.

There were Sola Scripturists before the N.T was complete, again I ask if you think the O.T. points to Christ?

And here's one writing we agree with;

Clement of Rome (?- 110), "And we who through his will have been called in Christ Jesus are justified, not by ourselves, or through our wisdom or understanding or godliness, or the works that we have done in holiness of heart, but by faith, by which all men from the beginning have been justified by Almighty God, to whom be glory world without end. Amen." (First Clement, 32-33)

I just don't see these 'news stories' that you do. In fact, you gotta google pretty hard to find them. Then if you do, its nothing written by anyone of importance..
It doesn't appear to be anything out of the norm either. It appears to be typical of any group of people; athletic, political, educational, or religion!
I think you just really really wanna see chaos in the Church and you'll do anything to spread as much trash as possible even if its not worthy enough for a story.

Huh? There was Sola Scripturist BEFORE the NT was complete?

I like how you cherry pick Clement of Rome. Maybe you can read his other writings too.

Very clever! You are trying to take a term coined in 1869 and use it in 30! You are very clever indeed!

Dr. Thomas Bramwell Welch, a physician and dentist by profession, successfully pasteurizes Concord grape juice to produce an "unfermented sacramental wine" for fellow parishioners at his church in Vineland, N.J., where he is communion steward. His achievement marks the beginning of the processed fruit juice industry.

Yes of course the OT points to Christ. That's not the issue. The issue is which early Christians believed the same as today's evangelicals. St. Clement certainly didn't. This piece is something that the Catholic Church believes, but he wrote a lot of other things that you vehemently disagree with, so he obviously wasn't an "early" evangelical by your standards. Do you think you can pick certain paragraphs from their writings and claim they're evangelicals when you disagree with everything else they wrote? I don't think so. What else do you have marge?

..... You tell us you know everything there is to know about your church but when it comes to scandals you pull back into your shell like a frightened turtle head.
Did you not know this is the SECOND money laundering scandal the vatican bank has been involved in since the 1980s? Are you OK with that?
....Doesn't bother you at all. UNBELIEVABLE!
No I did not know about a money laundering scandal. My guess is its another 'story' you uncovered on that internet thingy. lol

And pleas cite a post where I claimed to 'know everything there is to know about my church'.

That's ridiculous.

I'll tell you one thing: I never came across people like you and Free Mind - who are so oddly obsessed with another group of people. Its very weird.
I could never imagine going on a Muslim themed website and posting unfavorable things about them...12-15 times per day!!
And 3/4 of your posts are about child sexual abuse too! Another very bizarre angle on that.
Eh, you aint Catholic...so what? Nobodies forcing you to go to Confession. I don't see the rationale of trying to drag as many people away from the Church as possible. Im guessing you're very insecure about the path you've chosen and somehow need to justify this path by bashing the Church to which you once belonged...hmmm
