If the Catholic Church is not the one started by Christ, then which one of you 42,000 are?
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
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.

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

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 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.

I dont have to forgive him, he has done nothing to me, but he is a low life scum bag not to take care of his mother, as the bible tells him to do. of course, your book probably left that part out since it interferes with the seperation that your chuch enforces on you kooks.

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

guess that your religion aint very pure, but of course we already knew that.

Actually, Marian doctrine is so deep rooted in scripture, that Evangelicals can't see it. You guys barely scratch the surface of scripture. Do you guys even study the Old Testament? Do you read the writings of the men the Apostles ordained?
You need to do those things to be a serious Christian.
Right now you fail to see things cuz you're so fixed on verse chapter verse of the New Testament. Heck, you think its all that's revealed about Jesus!
That tells me you don't have a clue.

I'm not trying to challange you. The word of God should be discussed in a peaceful manner. Its what the scriptures say. What I know is that the Jews stopped using Jehovah's name because they came up with superstitious idea that his name was too holy to use in conversation and I haven't met many Jews who are fond of Jesus. And so I don't know the point you're trying to make.

no hipocracy here,i just do not believe what the vatican/pope believe,that the catholic is the true church,and i show the history of the church which catholics close their eyes to that proves that point.how can you have a true church when you can't even prove a god exists.

The Watchtower;

1.Zion’s Wt, 1/15/1892, pg 1355, reprint...“battle” is definitely marked in Scripture as October, 1914.

2.The Time is at Hand, 1908, pg 101...the “battle of the great day of God Almighty”(Rev.16:14) which will end in A.D. 1914, with the complete overthrow of earth’s present rulership, is already commenced.

Millions now Living Will Never Die, 1920, pg. 89, 90Therefore we may confidently expect that 1925 will mark the return of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the faithful prophets of old...."

FROM AWAKE Magazine;

Aw, 5/22/1969, pg 15If you are a young person, you also need to face the fact that you will never grow old in this present system of things......all evidence in fulfillment of Bible prophecy indicates that this corrupt system is due to end in a few years.

....as a young person you will never fulfill any career that this system offers.

If you are in high school and thinking about a college education, it means at least four, perhaps even six or eight more years to graduate into a specialized career.

But where will this system of things be by that time? It will be well on the way toward its finish, if not actually gone!

They blamed other religions for setting dates and called them false prophets. 1.Light 1930, pg 47,
They have been prophesying particularly since 1918, and everyone knows that their prophecies to date have not come to pass; and that alone is strong evidence that they are false prophets

They blamed others,lol.

Paradise Restored 1972, pg 353,354, Jehovah, the God of the true prophets, will put all false prophets to shame either by not fulfilling the false prediction of such self-assuming prophets or by having his own prophecies fulfilled in a way opposite to that predicted by the false prophets.

False prophets will try to hide who they really are.

on my other forum, when the talk is about God, it is L_rd, and why should that bother any chriatian if they or anyone else feels that God and His Name is Holy. and they show that respect to His Holy Nmae.

guess that you havent had a close experience with God that will mkae you feel that the floor should be removed becuase you cant get low enough and humble yourself in His Presence.

I meant to say isn't a denomination.
God's Church, which Jesus Christ HIMSELF initiated, formed and authenicated in Matthew 16:13-21 was, is and will always be His biblically authenticated (one and only) Apostolic Universal (referred to as Catholic in 045AD). This is the same Church that His Apostles taught in Antioch (Acts 2) which had Bishops, Deacons, Priests and Elders (also Acts 2). It is the same heirarchical, authoritative, visible Church that Paul referred to in his letters that he wrote to the (visible0 Churches in Philippi, Galatia, Ephesis, Thessalonica, Corrinth,and on and on. This is the same Church that is referred to over 30 times in the New Testament.--The Catholic Church is NOT a denomination, because it is the (one and only) True Church that Jesus (HIMSELF) initiate and formed! Denominations began with the Reformation and the dividing fracturing, and splintering that followed Martin Luther.

1.Luther (eliminated some original books of the bible)
2.Zwingli (eliminated and rejected the Eucharist)
3.Knox (threw out some of the Sacraments)
