The Pope has diplomatic immunity. He's a head of state.

Total fabrication without merit.
Prove that I am wrong or keep to your Self.
You move.

Incorrect.
I made the statement, but you think it is a fabrication. That would now place the onus on you to prove I am wrong.
Besides, I already provided documentation that show I am correct.
Live with it Anthony.
Go hug a pedophile priest if it makes you feel better, but don't tell them where you got teh document from, because it is supposed to be "Confidential" and "eyes only" - per the Vatican.
What a loser.
Demanding people make your own argument for you?

Playing the scandal card?

Name calling?

Looks like Anthony hit a nerve on your"Self".

A letter written by Ignatius of Antioch to Christians in Smyrna around 106 is the earliest surviving witness to the use of the term Catholic Church (Letter to the Smyrnaeans, 8).
By Catholic Church Ignatius designated the universal church. Ignatius considered that certain heretics of his time, who disavowed that Jesus was a material being who actually suffered and died, saying instead that "he only seemed to suffer" (Smyrnaeans, 2), were not really Christians.
The term is also used in the Martyrdom of Polycarp in 155 and in the Muratorian fragment, about 177 .
In summary: Christ found His church (Christian communities of members on earth or saints in heaven or both).
Today we refer to that as Christianity...which identifies denominations that follow His teachings...which excludes the Catholics...they teach from "traditions" and the "magnastiurm" and the"catechism" which they freely admit are not based on Scripture..
Men, not Christ, founded the catholic denomination.....(Denomination : A large group of religious congregations united under a common faith and name and organized under a single administrative and legal hierarchy.)
You've done enough damage to our Holy Bible. Now you want to venture into our writings from the Apostolic Fathers?

Whaddabouit....Full of Love?????
I really thought, for a minute, you asked me for an honest and frank answer, because you were genuinely interested in the truth.
Ro 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Does this verse say Christ is God and God is Christ?
Is there something about my question you don't understand??
I went to bed Oxbow,that is why I hadn't answeed you.

I wasn't feeling too good last night.

Oxbow,I am not going to argue with you about this.

I have posted scripture after scripture showing that the Lord Jesus Christ was God in the flesh.

The whole Old Testament points to Christ.

He was the cloud that the children followed in the dessert.

He was the burning bush.

He was the Rock that moses struck.

The Holy Bible say's that No man can see God and live.

By being manifest in the flesh,we could see Him.

If what you believe is true,then please explain to me how it is that both God and Jesus is the First and the Last.
The Alpha and Omega.

Revelation 2:8
And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write;

These things saith >>the first and the last,
>>>which was dead,
>>>and is alive.

Did God die????

Isaiah 44:6
Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was,

>>>>>and which is to come, >>>>the Almighty.

22:13
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last

Please explain these verses.

That is all I ask.

I may not be here tonight because we are under an ice storm watch and if it hits,we will lose our power.

I look forward to your answer to my question.

I didn't mean to get into your personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Its funny, but Catholics acknowledge the work of the Holy Spirit throughout the world. Its you guys who deny His work in us...
'We're not saved; we're not properly born again; we're pagan; we worship statues and Mary; our Pope is the anti Christ; we changed the Bible; we added books; we're all going to hell...'
I think its odd that you guys get ticked when I say "you're on the outside of the Church, looking in."
Or I point out the dilemma lifelong Protestant Ministers face when shown the truth in Catholicism.
And BTW, I was relaying the testimonials I've read from former ministers who've came into the Catholic Church... the agony they dealt with concerning their careers and the congregations they've built up. The lifelong friends they lost due to their conversion. The ridicule from family. Its tough. I wouldn't want to face that decision. Many just embrace ignorance and continue on with their life.
Clay,I would never say that you all are going to hell.
That's not my place to do such a thing.

John 1 KJV
1 In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,

>>>>and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

That is true. It has been used many times in the past 10 years.

The question is:

Is this power "from God" being used for high moral purposes and to save souls?

Dan, this is the question you can't face. Humanity has heard all of the spin -- "we thought we were doing the right thing" etc...

Not to be disrespectful, but what are more prayers going to do?

...Religious people have prayed BILLIONS of prayers already for years regarding abortion and nothing has changed. Why?

You want to help? Start a committee with others and start adopting these kids instead of just talking about them.

Why are there more people today interested in "dog rescue" than child rescue?

A new form of action is needed. Talking/praying will change nothing.

From the bearer of God's Perfect Teachings.....

"We thought we were doing the morally right thing."

Even after decades of evidence, the RCC still "thought they were doing the morally right thing."

The morally right thing .... for whom?

Perfect teachings on morals = 99% looking after your own reputation and people, and maybe 1% for the victims?

Amazing how "religion" can blind people to morality.

Catholics aren't 'saved' according to common Evangelical thought. Therefore we're destined for hell.

Amen Preston what you said is very true, I had a hard time trying to figure out why I didn't fit into this world, I never was suppose to. God had other plans for me.
When I was born again, it was like someone turned the world right side up.
And that is true of the Apostles in the first century,they turned the world upside down,we know that being changed by the LORD through His Son,and in the power of the Holy Spirit,makes that difference that we can turn the world upside down as well.Christians are suffering for the Lord in many countries,martyrs are being sent to the Lord daily,and the countries where Christians suffer persecution are going through upheavals.The Christians are salt and light,we are making a difference.

I like what Preston posted that you responded to,it is about conversion,and not to a church,but to HIM who died at Calvary.The church is the creation,not the CREATOR!
