How can you believe this distorted trinity belief? A child will not even fall for it.
Wow
You mean when Jesus was baptised Aviela a voice from Heaven said this is my beloved son in who I am well pleased.
God the Father's voice, God the Son in the flesh Jesus, God the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove.
All in one place at once, The Holy Trinity which you deny wow Aviela. wake up.

Why did he just not say I'm going to send myself and sacrifice myself. Why did Jesus tell satan: Stand behind me it is Jehovah you must worship. Why didn't he just say I am Jehovah worship me?
It takes more BLIND faith in the trinity than it does to believe Jehovah and Jesus are not the same beings. I for one don't think Jesus' intentions was to confuse the masses into thinking he was his father. The Jews in his days new he wasn't God. Jesus did not lie when he said people were going to believe strange teachings after his death.
Aviela I think you are confused, big time.
You a have been told the gospel of Jesus Christ, and enough scritpure to prove Jesus was God in the flesh.
You are without excuse, I will not try and convince you any longer.
You are even mixing Bible scriptures up, which is ok if you are a first year Bible student but your not.
You have made up your mind your right only the Holy Ghost can convince you other wise. and open you understand to the Holy Gospel of Jesus.

I don't understand what worship is?
ah that's it. Maybe I have been worshiping that marble image and didn't know it!! not!
God clearly meant creating statues and worshiping them. He clearly meant putting images in place of Him as a deity. That is what would make Him jealous.
God did not mean we couldn't use our artistic ability to create an image to further Glorify HIM.
Like I said, this was all already explained to you.
Your opinion is set.
Now YOU need to start explaining your logic.
Why does an image of Christ in Marys arms make God Jealous?
Why do you accuse Catholics of worshiping it, even though we testify how crazy that is?
Then explain to me exactly where is the line between veneration and worship? Do ANY catholics in all of the world EVER cross over that line? Is Mary ever 'worshipped' like God?
The literal Greek translation of the 2nd commandment does not say 'putting images in [lace of Him as deity'. The literal translation is 'Thou shalt have no other gods in My presence.'
Why do you think man's artistic ability in making images or icons somehow 'further glorifies Him.
If someone made a statue of Clay that looked nothing like Clay would you be pleased? Do you KNOW what Jesus looked like? And why do you feel that you need an image to 'hesp' you remember to worship God? Does He posses lso little of your heart and mind that you are always forgetting about Him?
And again you are ignoring the instructions regarding graven images. The scripture clearly says not to make unto thyself 'any graven images'. But why would you care what scripture says? You only care what the RCC says.
But someday you will give an account to God( not the magisterium) explaining why you chose to disregard His very detailed instructions.

What church does Armstrong belong to, I don't watch T.V. evangalists either.
he died a few years ago. I think the name of his ministry was worldwide church of god.

here are some views of that statement about the lost tribes which they now reject as being untrue

10. British Israelism/Anglo-Israelism.(und er Armstrong)-- Views the "lost ten tribes" of Israel as the key to prophecy. Claims that "Judah" and "Israel" always refer to the two separate nations, and that inhabitants of Great Britain are of the tribe of Ephraim, while the inhabitants of America are of the tribe of Manasseh.(Armstrong never did explain how a Britisher, by immigrating to the U.S., moves from the tribe of Ephraim to the tribe of Manasseh.) Claims that white Anglo-Saxons are the chosen people of God.

British Israelism/Anglo-Israelism.(und er Tkach)-- Late-1995, the church officially rejected the doctrine that the Anglo-Saxons descended from the tribes of Israel

The doctrinal foundation of the Worldwide Church of God was adopted from the Seventh-Day Adventists through the Church of God-7th Day. Armstrong added the Identity of Modern Israel theory which he obtained from J. H. Allen and the Jewish Feast Days

this is like the jw's"Also, the Holy Spirit is not a person, but an active force emanating from God. " marge would go bonkes on this statement.Armstrong taught that a believer could lose salvation by disobeying what Armstrong declared to be "God's command through His chosen Apostle." He wrote, "Do you want to let resentment against God's government over you NOW disqualify you -- snatch you from God's GRACE and PURPOSE for you, and cast you into a lake of fire?" (Dear Brethren Letter, May 2, 1974, p. 7).

Wow
your statement is false and even achild would know that. at the time of the earthquake, a roman soldier uttered these words. TRULY, THIS WAS THE SON OF GOD

and i think it was tony curtis who said them.

you will redicule the bible now but some day, you will meet russell in hell and hate him for all eternity for the mess that his lies bought to you.

.....Well, Christmas and New Year's has come and gone.

Ps:.....It was comforting to see that Pope Benedict XVI, while flying around the world, looked out of his window and gave his blessings.

Now, everyone everywhere, regardless of creed, will be drinking Holy Water the rest of their lives.

then they are truly blessed people. i said what i did because noticed it happening when i go to my mothers grave,i saw the same people there for awhile,one i'll never forget a young woman (25-30) lost her baby,every time i went to see my mom she was there reading a chldrens book to her child,then one time went and she was not there and i haven't seen her since,and it's been over a year now.an elderly lady who's husband is next to my mother,came all the time to see her husband,then stopped,in this case though i think it is because she can't get there anymore,she was in her late 80's early 90's,so the g/f and i look after his grave for her,she was a nice woman,her granddaughter use to allways be with her.anyway i notice it a lot people most likely stop coming because of the pain,to know that they'll never see that person again,and the fact they are buried in the cold ground,it may get to bother people and could one reason they stop going.or they themselves passed away.

That's one interpretation.
Hojo chooses another interpretation. Hojo chooses to embrace a "church" that uses DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY as a barrier against truth and justice for thousands of orphans and deaf children.
Hojo rejects what Jesus said about those who harm children.
Hojo embraces a different view of "perfect morality."
PS --- a "church" that also uses DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY as a barrier against EU and USA bank examiners as well. This is a unique RCC interpretation of Jesus' last act as a free man on earth.
..the united nations should vote on stripping the church of this immunity,for it's not right,only the catholic church has it? no other church does? wonder how much it cost them to bribe people for the immunity.

OK! Then quit your "babbling" about the word Catholic not being in the bible! You, jethro8 continue to "make things up" as you go along to fit your anti-catholic hostility and vindictiveness against the Historical and Biblical TRUTH of Jesus Christ and His PROVEN One True Apostolic Universal (Catholic) Church!
other way around buddy,i don't have to make things up,all i have to do is read church history,that you and other catholics ignore,i've asked you and many others have asked for undeniable truth about the stupid,vitican statement,yet you supply no answers,you just talk chibberish,you reapeat yourself over and over again how anti-catholic we are,and you offer no proof to back your claim and the vaticans,because you CAN NOT

Your response above is BOGUS and BUSTED!!
like i told you,constantine most likely told his group of men not to put every word in the bible, which they didn't, they burned books,why? what was in those books that he did not want the world to see,the fact that he is creating a false religion?,which he did,gods word was meant to be preached not written down,but the apostles chose to write them down,and CAN YOU prove that every thing they wrote is not in the bible?? i can.there are many books the men have stated that they are not inspired books,how do we know this? did jesus/god say so? why is the gospel of mary not there? the church holds her as an equal to god,so why leave the book out? why take out the book of ruth,thomas,sumarian and many others? we don't have the whole truth in the bible only part of it because of this.especially the part about books being burned by a pagan emporer.

You may have convinced yourself that Catholics create these statues to worship as a deity, but that don't make it truth. You can't ignore 1 billion testimonies and STILL falsely accuse us. That's violating the 9th commandment on your part.
i have witnessed people bowing to these idols and praying to them,strictly forbidden,but the church changed the commandments without authority in order to make money."“You shall not make for yourself a carved 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, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God,.....funny how you don't see this in the catholic version of the commandments,simply because of "MONEY",You shall not make for yourself a carved image or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath. "you going to say this does not apply to the iodols made by catholic owned factories?"

Who then, is the true Church?
Whatever group it is, has the protection of Jesus Christ on faith and moral teachings. He promised to be with them until the end of time. He promised a visible Church, not a hidden secret one, and the gates of Hell will not bring it down- and neither will a handful of screwed up Priests.
I found that Church and I ain't about to call Christ a liar. This is called real faith in Jesus, Jethro.
All other Christian groups were started by some guy or girl with a personal take on the New Testament books.
Not the Catholic Church. It was started by Jesus Christ. No? Then where did that Church go that Christ was talking about?
jesus is the head of the church where he is present so is his church,since he is a spirit so is his church it is sitting in his fathers kingdom,and he sits in the chair of the true church for no man is perfect enough to take up such a position,if you read mathew like POPE HOJO does"16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven" he is giving him the keys to the church which lies in heaven. can you think of another interpratation to that statement? to me it makes sense jesus is handing him the keys to his church in heaven (if the one god theory is true).

You're saying Jesus is handing Peter the keys, so Jesus can build His Church..... in Heaven?
That lacks logic.
