You need to post the contradiction to prove your point.
But this is the route you took, I merely asked you to tell us the role of your church in tribulation time and you decided to skid all the way to your point of the ever increasing number of denominations.
Post the question to cowboy and I'll prove to you that the interpretation we have is the same.
If HOJO asked me, I would be obligated to tell him the truth, and at that time, he might reconsider and add me to that list of people on here that he doesnt like.lol

Have you checked out the King James Bible it restored Jehovah's name almost 7000 times. We all know satan wants God's named blocked but its not going to happend. You will hear about his name whether it makes you cringe or not.

This is very very important LTM, because Jesus clearly started a Church that He promised to protect from the gates of Hell. Thus, the Apostles clearly started a Church and those they ordained wrote much about Bishops, Priests and Deacons and the Magistrium that was started by the Apostles.
So, where did this Church that Christ promised to be with til the end of the world, go?
please answer
NONE : of the 42,000 earthy church are the true church of Christ.
that said I believe a realm of God's true church sits in every denomination .
You don't get it Clay , God's church is a denomination, or is it swayed by every doctrine, it is taught and lead by the Holy Spirit.
God reigns from Heaven on earth.
He sees all and knows all.

I think she is upset because i do not care for her religion,and being an honest person,i had to say/speak the truth on how i feel about jehovahs,nothing personal against her,like i said she is probably a great person,but i don't agree with her religious beliefs,espeacially when people are allowed to die needlessly in a belief that can not be 100% proven it is true.

<quoted text>jethro, what clay saidd to you was true.
avie was speaking about me and to me. she seems to think that because I call her church a satanic cult, that is being nasty.
I call it the truth.
she doesnt like it because I speak anout my no good nephew who wont even visit him mom nor help to take care of her. and her other son died last year of Liver problems, so except for cathie, she has no one else to help her.
and the Bible speaks very clearly about not helping and taking care of widows and orphans
then in that case if you call someone elses religion names,then you should not get upset when someone trash talks your beliefs,if what you say is what you call "the truth".

Clay we are still here, you just dont wish to join us.

when Jesus said you must repent and be Born Again, so the person that does that is now part of His church.

nothing else is required or asked of you than that.Avie asked me what the "theme" of the bible is because she thought that I wouldnt know,and in fact she didnt know until I told her.

from Genesis through Revelation, there is a Scarlet thread, and that is Blood. it took the shedding of Blood for adam and eve to be covered.

it takes the same shed Blood of Jesus to cover our sins. the sprinkling of warer will not and can not do that. Only His Blood.

BTW, I have always preferred to preach out of the OT. once when i was first starting, my pastor spoke about how young ministers wouldnt Preach out of Psalms. so when I got up to preach(with knees knocking) I told the church to turn to Psalms and I Preached that morning about the kine in Basham

I don't understand what worship is?
Anti-Catholic Protestants like 4GVN don't have any logic!
It is all based upon vengeance, animosity and (ingrained) vindictiveness toward the Catholic Church and the fact that "each Protestant" is (all over the place) when it comes to rationalism and (in particular) when it comes to the TRUTH of Church History and the TRUE interpretation of Sacred Scripture...All bible only (rationale) is predicated and supported by a "pyramid of bible verses" that is based upon "relative truth".(what each person thinks is truth--becomes the truth for them). This is why there continues to be a growing list (each day) over 42,000+ inconsistent) Protestant denominations) As one bible verse (what I think) interpretation after another is disproved, the Protestant "pyramid" begins to "crumble" and it leads to another denomination of "relative truth" which has little or no truth at all.. BEEN THERE!! DONE THAT!!--for over 35 years! This is why, it is a "total waste of time" to play the Protestant "question and answer"--merry-go-round-- circus (game) with ANY of them! Protestants are not here to learn "anything" about the TRUTH of the Catholic faith--- except to spread their anti-catholic "heretical bible only distortion,condemnation, judgement and vengeance against the Historical and Biblical TRUTH of our PROVEN Catholic Faith and against Jesus Christ HIMSELF manifested in His One True Apostolic Catholic Church. God is not, has never been and will never be the author of Protestant "relative truth" (half-truth, half-heresy) Christianity that is "infected" by confusion and chaos!!

I give my opinion based on my Biblical knowledge, and it is up to you or anyone else to accept it or reject it.

I am not responsible if you accept it and get saved, and I am not responsible if you choose to not accept His Mercy on your soul.

it all lays on your shoulders not mine.my shoulders are not broad enough to bear your sins and others.

One of the JW's told me that they don't celebrate Thanksgiving.
She said a neighbor brought her some turkey on Thanksgiving day and that she accepted it.

One would think that they would not be allowed to accept it because it was part of Thanksgiving.

she isn't even spell right God's name has no vowels , if she was to be honest she has no knowledge at all.

Well to be honest I lost a sister to blood transfusion she got tinted blood.
She got Hepatitis C , suffered 15 years before she past on.
In 1985 I had an operation, I had to be tested for a year or more
For H-C and HIV, scary time.
H-C can lay dorment for years before it will raise its ugly head many people could be walking around with it and don't know it.
If I was going to have an operation now I would get the Doctor to take several pints from me before hand.
They will do that now over a period of a couple of months, they like me at the blood bank I have O positive I can give my blood to anyone.

You told me? Sorry I missed your post I was enjoying some yummy garlic bread.

Have you made the peace with your nephew or are you still bitterly angy at him? You know what Jehovah says: if you cannot forgive others he will not forgive you.

You don't get to decide what Catholics believe. I see allot of finger pointing towards us; people telling us what we believe instead of asking us. How many posts start out,'Catholics think that...
Catholics believe in ... Catholicism is..'
you guys hate what you think is the Catholic Church, not what IS the Catholic Church.
what i say about catholics are based on their man made pagan/christian traditions,what they/you believe in is found nowhere in the bible/scriptures,catholocism is a baby religion it's only 2000 yrs old,and created by a pagan emporer and about 100 learned men. who put the two religions together to keep the people of the empire happy. don't understand why it's so hard to understand with people,it is not gods/jesus' church or religion.there's plenty of history to prove it and nothing that states otherwise.there is not one passage anywhere in the bible or scriptures where jesus says his church is the catholic church,only man says that.and that is meaningless.
