........Catholics believe the concept of a TRINITY was theirs and theirs only. Long before the Jesus story came many man/god beliefs too had trinities including women trinune Gods.

.......Not much UNIQUE about christianity. Most of their customs/traditions were practiced long before Mary screamed I am pregnant!

The Trinity did not come from Greek philosophy.

However, I think its great your challenging the evangelicals on this dogma.
Because they claim sola scripture; bible alone as the sole source on Christianity. They take the bible literally. And they throw out lots of Catholic teachings because its not explicitly spelled out in scripture.
So its amusing to see them defend the Trinity dogma. And you to pick it apart. BOTH of Yous are using sola scripture to do this.
Did I say amusing or sad?

You're confusing places for the wealthy to go and die, as hospitals.
Royalty always had a nice place for them to die.
Are you wealthy Jethro?
If not, your family would have dumped you in the wilderness to die.
The Roman Catholic Church created hospitals for the poor, sick and dying. Its what the world has to this day because the Church taught them the value of EVERY human life.
I the commend the church if what you say its true. But from what I experienced Catholic churches charge for their medical care. They've never treated me for free. I'm still paying hospital bills.

Actually, it's not what the Bible says.
"Catholics worship statues!" People still make this ridiculous claim. Because Catholics have statues in their churches, goes the accusation, they are violating Godís commandment: "You shall not make for yourself a graven image or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: you shall not bow down to them or serve them" (Ex. 20:4Ė5); "Alas, this people have sinned a great sin; they have made for themselves gods of gold" (Ex. 32:31).
It is right to warn people against the sin of idolatry when they are committing it. But calling Catholics idolaters because they have images of Christ and the saints is based on misunderstanding or ignorance of what the Bible says about the purpose and uses (both good and bad) of statues.
Anti-Catholic writer Loraine Boettner, in his book Roman Catholicism, makes the blanket statement, "God has forbidden the use of images in worship" (281). Yet if people were to "search the scriptures" (cf. John 5:39), they would find the opposite is true. God forbade the worship of statues, but he did not forbid the religious use of statues. Instead, he actually commanded their use in religious contexts!

All other man/gods that came 1,000 years before the Jesus story had statues too. Many of them also worshipped their TRINITIES.
Thats rightttt!

So tell us, do you think prayer should be allowed in public schools?
Why do you say "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas"? Isn't Jesus the reason for the season?

Your buddy, the atheist, called her a slut. And not one of your objected except for Karen.

Fundies have a way of twisting everything a Catholic says.

I'm still waiting for Aviela to acknowledge that not one Catholic here has called her a cultist. Nor have we made any other disparaging remarks about her beliefs.

Do you think she's a cultist *except* for when she makes derogatory comments about the Church?

<quoted text> Clay, the average 15 old in the kingdom hall knows more about the Bible than than Pope. I've tried to listen to what the Pope has to say and I've yet learned 1 thing from him, all he seems to do is take tours around the world and wave his lil hand. Years before I got baptised and learned the Bible I noticed his pattern. He says a few words here and there and people roll on the ground crying like he's the messiah. No one on earth should be worshiped like that. Especialy if he isn't walking on water.
Our current Pope is one of the best theologians in the world. You probably have a difficult time following his words because he is that good. The Bible is vast. Catholicism is vast too, because much of the Catholic faith derives from the Old Testament. Jews would understand our Mass before an evangelical would. Its 2,000 yrs old and wonderfully reveals the Old testament flowing into the New.

btw, every summer I take a moment to talk with the JWs when they stop by. I do quite well too.

its also funny the Slut post mysteriously disappeared a few months later.
I remember quite well how no evangelical on here spoke up to defend Our Lords Mother.

Someone implied Mary was an ugly woman. Lets see if any evangelical defend her.

"...... the "Statue of Liberty" is nothing more than a mammoth idol of the Hecate goddess. In Ptolemaic Alexandria and elsewhere during the Hellenistic period, she appears as a three-faced goddess associated with magic, witchcraft, and curses. Today she is claimed as a goddess of witches and in the context of Hellenic Polytheistic Reconstructionism."

"She closely parallels the Roman goddess Trivia."

Thank you.

What has the Pope done for me lately?

Nothing I know of. Although he prays daily for us and we do the same for him.

But the Papacy has carried the faith from the Apostles to our generation. Remember Aviela, we had no New Testament until the 4th century. And it was a Pope who put the stamp of approval on it. Thus giving every one - including JWs - a Bible.

Karen spoke up, she was the only one. She saw his post and knew what his game was. He still plays it. Recently he called Jesus a jerk or some such thing. He pushes the envelope hoping for a response and then denies he said it based on the way he phrased the sentence. Karen caught onto that, too. Now he'll do it again because we brought it up. I'm telling you, ignore them. They're going to try everything to get you to respond to them, even going so far as to pretend they really want to 'discuss' something. Some of the fundies fall for that. The think they're truly "seeking" God and they try to convert them, LOL! All those two are interested in is barking and braying :):):)

Any thoughts about that?
