Jesus is God(the Word) John 1
The Blessed Virgin Mary is the Mother of Jesus
Therefore....The Blessed Virgin Mary is the Mother of God(the Word).
The Holy Spirit is the Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary(Luke 1:35)
(What God hath joined together, let no man put assunder.)
*[1:1] In the beginning: also the first words of the Old Testament (Gn 1:1). Was: this verb is used three times with different meanings in this verse: existence, relationship, and predication. The Word (Greek logos): this term combines God’s dynamic, creative word (Genesis), personified preexistent Wisdom as the instrument of God’s creative activity (Proverbs), and the ultimate intelligibility of reality (Hellenistic philosophy). With God: the Greek preposition here connotes communication with another. Was God: lack of a definite article with “God” in Greek signifies predication rather than identification.

The above is from the NABRE of John 1:1.....Show me where it teaches Jesus is God....

You say you have Jesus but reject His Church?
You'd agree that Christ started a Church. Right?
If its not the Catholic Church, then who is it?
Not all of you 42,000 could be the correct one.
If I'm new to Christianity, I'm going to find out which Church was there from the beginning. Then and only then, would I be in the correct group.
All others can and do experience Christ, because He is love. But you do not have the fullness of His teachings.. you only have some of it. And that is by using the books that the Catholic Church says is the Bible.

"Simple, if one priest was caught, how many of his superiors had to know what happened and they chose to cover it up."
His superior is his bishop. The bishop wasn't covering up, he was simply following the prevailing treatment course for anyone who was accused of sexual deviancy in those days. Most of the bishops during that time were advised by the psychological profession to send him to treatment and once he received a "clean bill of health" from the experts, the bishop re-assigned him. We know now, AFTER THE FACT, is was the wrong thing to do and those criminals should've been kicked out of the priesthood and turned over to the authorities.
But the axe you have to grind with the Catholic Church isn't really just about sick abusing priests now is it?
Thank God, God was there the guide them! Had they not followed man and stayed with God, they would not have fallen into this trap!

It is all man's fault! The RCC has no responsibility at all!

It will be that way for the next 2,000 yrs too. This is the reality when you're involved in spiritual warfare. Thankfully, the Church is infallible in her teachings on faith and morals so we will always have that unbreakable pillar to guide us.
you left out popes,the church had a lot of bad self indulging popes,you have to be kidding when you say the church is infallible in it's teachings? in lies yes i would have to agree with you there.

Explain.

First, the abusers and those who protected the abusers, must be brought to justice. You cannot demand forgiveness, whilst committing the crime.
Second, the catholics must admit to the crime, the cover up and do their best to make amends. So far, the catholic church has cried that they do not have the money to pay the victims; then they turn around and buy the crystal cathedral for $58 million!
The catholic church is not asking for forgiveness.
wow,i knew they bought the church didn't think it was that much though,pretty good for a church that says it's bankrupt,also they spent 2 million on a new church somewhere in the midwest,can't remeber name of the state.there is no way they can declare bankruptcy,with all the gold and silver statues,and assorted objects they have that are considered priceless,sell one statue and they could rebuild the oh lets say haiti from the ground up,and with 1.6 billion+ members donating money every week to the church,and throw in the money they are making from all realestate holdings,and idol sales,they are very well off,their just not going to admit it,and lets remember a lot of victims were paid from an insurrance policy the church had just in case they got caught at molesting children. by taking out this policy that basically says they knew they would get caught one day of the wrong doing like in past indiscretions they were caught for.

...Is the church that dysfunctional that it can't learn from its mistakes?......and according to you, the same mistakes will continue for another 2,000 years.
What a poor track record. Is no one in the church correcting mistakes as they happen?
UNBELIEVABLE!
they sweep it under the rug and hope no one notices,and what makes you think the church will be around another 2000 yrs? islam is allready blowing up their churches,3 so far as i have read about,could be more.

The prayers are to God. We believe in intercessory prayer.
JETHRO:if this is what your doing to are defying god,no one except jesus can interceed on your behalf the bible clearly states that 1 timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one "mediator" between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;....to break this rule is to defy god,so in essence catholics defy god every time they pray to anyone outside of jesus.

You could easily find it for yourself (Second Secret of Fatima), but here's another one for you to run from.
How does an individual claim diplomatic immunity unless invoked by an institutional authority.
Roman Catholic Church 101...
Q... What institutional authority uses diplomatic immunity to keep individuals from testifying in court cases involving sexually abused orphans?
A... Jesus only appointed Church, Perfect teachings on morals.
You can find that too if you tried.
But somehow, they never lift a finger to find the actual facts. Shocker!!!!!!
I asked you to cite the quote from Mary. Find it and cite it.

Find and cite the instances of diplomatic immunity and who it's extended to.

Just back something, anything up with a fact. Once.

The Catholic church does NOT follow Jesus.
Oh bigoted one, the first Church is all that matters. Christ promised to be with them til the end; the gates of hell will never prevail against it; its built on rock;
I don't care what they eventually called themselves.. its the same structural organization in an unbroken line. And you have to admit, the Catholic Church - despite having all their first Popes murdered; upwards of 70 million martyrd since Christ; scandals in the clergy; tyrants and kings waging war against her; countless bigots like you spreading lie after lie ..... and they are still here.
When will you learn? You have the biggest disadvantage known to man, Guest. You're going up against Jesus Christ and the Church He established. You can't win!

Dan....Catholics pray to Mary...
Excerpt:
Prayers to Virgin Mary
From the Church's beginnings, prayers to Virgin Mary have held a place of honor for Catholics.
Here are some of the most fundamental and majestic.
These prayers prayers to Virgin Mary take varied forms. Most of them combine:
Prayers to God, modeled after the faith of Mary.
Meditations on the Incarnation, Mary's unique role in salvation history, or her perfect examples of virtues like faith, humility, and charity.
Prayers to Mary, asking for her help and protection.
Like all prayers to Saints, our prayers to Virgin Mary rely on the Saints' special power to intercede for us before Christ and the Father. But since Mary has a unique role in salvation, and a unique relationship to the Trinity, our prayers to the Blessed Virgin also rely on her special power of intercession.
NOTE: "PRAYERS TO VIRGIN MARY''PRAYERS TO MARY' "our prayers to the Blessed Virgin (TWICE SAID)"
We pray to her for her intercession on our behalf to God.

God gets the worship. Pray for intercession.

Nothing new here, Oxbow.

You might learn something!!!!...... The problem with you Jethro8 is that your "bogus heretical history writers" are (permanently) stuck on as much "anti-catholic hate & hostility" as you are and will "dig up" as many "myths and history legends" ---they can "make up" and will "SAY AND WRITE ANYTHING" in order to distort and twist the truth of TRUE CHURCH HISTORY.---- "BLOWING (contaminated & perverted history) SMOKE" is about the only thing that you Protestants, atheists and agnostics can rely upon , in order to keep up their vindictive hearts, minds and souls (heated up) in attacking the REAL TRUTH of the Catholic Church.
your early church fathers were nothing more than learned men put together by a pagan/christian emporer named constantine,they were not assembled by jesus or god to create the catholic religion,if it were it would be in the scriptures and you find nothing.anything that puts a bad light on the church you deny as being "bogus heretical history writers",are you going to tell me the crusades never took place? you going to tell me they didn't use sadistic tactics to get people to follow the church? you going to deny the abuse cases? or the money laundering for the mafia? which they were found guilty of,also comitted bank fraud themselves,they killed in the name of god,would gods actual church really do that? i don't think so,people would willingly follow gods true church without the threats of violence,the church used starvation,torture,inprisonmen t,even death threats,and the actual killing of people to get them to follow the church,that's unexceptable behavior for a god that supposedly created us out of love,wouldn't you agree?......they are guilty of crimes of unimaginal proportions,there is factual mulitiple sources that support the history i posted,you have posted nothing,that supports your belief that the catholic church is the church you state is mentioned somewhere somehow in the book of mathew which you constantly mention,yet the word catholic is not in there,and your excuse is that not every word is not written,if it is not written how can you take it as truth and factual? nice attempt of dodging the truth,the real truth is your church is of pagan/christian origin,how could it be anything else? all dates used are of pagan origin,they changed the sabbath,they changed the commandments for profit from the sale of idols/statues. which is clearly against gods wishes,it says so in the very bible the church itself put together but do not follow, how come? do as we say, not as we do,that definately applies to the church. it does not practice what it preaches. as i have posted many times 1 timothy clearly states there is no mediator between man and god except jesus,yet the church teaches confessing to a priest (who in reality is just a man)will absolve you from your sins,that's a lie if "timothy" is to believed,wouldn't you agree? and the most obvious fact is why would a jewish king create a religion opposite of his own? and why build it in a country he never went to? "MY CHURCH" that is all he states in the bible,nowhere do you find the word catholic or it's traditions mentioned in scripture,it is all of mans creation,to make the church so grand people would believe in it,that's how p.t. barnum became rich. and lets look at what you posted here,hojo:It is ALL recorded" jethro,here to contradict yourself,you say all is recorded but many many times you state not every word is written,which is it? is all recorded or not?

Only a couple 'bad Popes' Jethro, not a lot.
Perhaps 3 out of 265, and only God knows if they were truly bad and not the victims of vicious rumors.
But, lets just say they were really bad... that's less than 1%.. if 10 were corrupt, that's around 3%

Now, if you say the Church lies in her teachings, I ask which ones?
You can't provide any evidence because its not there. However, all Protestants need to lie to prove the CC wrong. That's exactly why I know I'm in the correct Church. You guys rely on deception in order to function as a religious group.
