guest and the jw may not think so, but i think I know.
I think that I know where the "true church" will be and also where the cc wil be, But I dont think that they are one and the same.imo.so how could I tell him and still be civil about it?
or can a person be civil and truthful at the same time? it does present a problem, but one that God could work out

Robert,just so you know,I am not condemning her.
Just trying get her to understand.
that God has more than one name and that her insisting that we should call our Lord a certain name is not right.
Only God know's her heart.
Full of Love good friend

I can see by your writing, that you are not hostile towards Aviela and her understanding.

It is very difficult, perhaps impossible to change another person's understanding. A friendly discussion will yield a better end...

Since God is outside of Creation, God is before and after all Creation, and beyond infinity in time, the name we use as God is of little importance. Language is going to be long forgotten before Creation ends....

God's Name is beyond our language.(We cannot capture God in our concepts, and hold Him captive in our thoughts by a name we give to God. This is idolatry.) And if a person depends upon their salvation on knowing God's Name, then their salvation is beyond(based in concepts of language) as well, rather than on God....

As you insist on pushing the total ban on statuary for those "who love the Lord", please tell the board what you and your fellows use instead of coins for currency. Coins contain the engraved relief images of US presidents and other things, and are thus unworthy of you.

Anxious to hear what work-around solution you've found for this.

Thanks in advance.

On second thought, all US currency incorporates graven images; paper money employs engraved images of US presidents and other things used to print the notes.

So again, let us know how you and your fellows work around this issue.

Thanks

<quoted text>
The difference is that we (Catholics anyway) do not claim that God can be scientifically proven in a lab- nor has the Church ever claimed God to be anything other than the mysterious, supernatural creator of all things.
Its you guys that turn and and demand us to prove God in a science lab - when that is not even our claim.
When science proves something to be true or false they have to back it up with evidence and facts. I am sure you are aware of this. As you know we could not exist today as we are, without ongoing medical science.

..... What would a God do about that? What would a God do about asteroids that will AGAIN one day crash into our planet destroying everything as we know it, and the cycle will start all over again as it has in the past.

There is no physical evidence that there is a God. That is why it is called a belief, and science is called a work in progress that brings us truths about ourselves that we can all verify with certainty.

Since the beginning of makind people have believed in their own Gods. Thousands of them. Single Gods, double headed gods, triple headed gods/goddesses, 3 persons in one God etc. In 2013 you just happen to be in a time in our history that you believe in the God of your choice, and as time progresses Gods will disappear and other Gods will take their place, as long as people have FEAR. Fear is the main contributor of why there are Gods.

Today science will provide you clean drinking water, food, your computer, tv, automobiles, your heat and your light.

What will your God do for you today?

Dan says..........Coins contain the engraved relief images of US presidents and other things.

Michael says......that is true, and we know when we look at these images they are very close resemblances of the people they depict.

.....statues/pictures of Mary or Jesus are just made up images that have been purposely engrained into your mind so you belief in your mind when you see one of these icons, that you believe you are looking Jesus or Mary.

If I showed you a statue of a man that was short, balding, with a hunchback and said to you Dan, this is Jesus, you would retrieve the image engrained in your mind and shout "this is not Jesus"

You have been brainwashed into believing that certain images, depict the real person. That is wrong, and the coins and dollar bills we have today and those that go back thousands of years, depict actual people and places that actually existed.

The church has conditioned your mind to expect Jesus and Mary to physically appear a certain way, just as we have been conditioned that Santa Claus is ALWAYS BIG, JOLLY with a white beard and red suit,......... no other substitute will do.

Its all in your mind....and the catholic church has planted it there.

How on Earth would Clay or anyone know if anyone actually worships Mary?
Statuary or artwork is not more "idolatry" than a protestant church or person festooned with a cross.
The Bible doesn't forbid statuary anyway. You say so yourself:
"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.'"
Put the tract down and think.
Hey Dan it's been awhile, how are you?

You don't think praying to or bowing to Mary is a act of worship?

...The bible writings are crystal clear. No graven images! How can catholics dipute these writings, especially! when THEIR OWN CATHOLIC FATHERS WROTE AND RECORDED THESE WRITINGS IN THE FIRST PLACE?

makes no common sense!

What if you should disassemble a watch, place all the parts into a box (no parts missing,) close the box, tape all sides so no parts can fall out, and begin shaking, I mean shake it up good.

How long before the watch will be fully assembled again?

<quoted text>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).
http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/Cults/arm...
So Armstrong was a SDA, that explains a lot. My brother-in-law use to listen to him all the time. They have magazines he left it at my house once, Nancy my friend told me his teachings were not creditable her husband was my Pastor so I didn't read any more of his stuff.
I couldn't remember his name though ,
I am going to read up and do some studying on the 12 tribes of Israel , my interest has been peaked.
I will go to the church library and get some books on it.
The Pastor who knows a lot on this subject is very elderly now and sick, I miss his teachings a lot.
But he is always up for talking on this subject God Love Him.
