The words of Jesus, in the New Testament, especially in the
Gospel, paraphrased and highlighted in "RED" indicating that Jesus HIMSELF, stated and spoke these words. No doubt, no question, no debate, as to the TRUTH here, that these were the "expressed words of Jesus Christ. Yes-----"MY body is real food and MY blood is real drink" says Jesus in John 6:47-59.---- Confirmed over and over again for over 2000 years of proven Church History.---------I'll stick to the TRUTH of Jesus Christ and His teachings, in and through His One True Apostolic Catholic Church. You, jethro8, can believe what you want!!--Your loss and our gain, as 1.168 Billion Catholics around the world.
Confirmed over and over again for over 2000 years of proven Church History..JETHRO,not confirmed and proven,wrong choice of words,it's been repeated over and over for the past 2000 yrs of "catholic only" church history,to drill it into your brain until you start to actually believe it is all true when you can not honestly corobborate anything.as far as the new testament goes,i don't put much stock in it because it's all hearsay books,and authors are not really known. nothing is undeniably factual.

If that were true 'alan" why then do we have some many religions who worship idols of animals, trees, other humans , satan worshippers etc.
Then you have people who worship the unseen God. you also have people like you who don't believe in anything.
So your argument is irrelevant.
I went to a catholic school for 4 years, taught by nuns. Dont tell me I dont know whats going on, I do know LTM. They brainwashed an entire population. Ever seen God? Ever had a dead human come back from the dead? Ever seen God? ever seen Jesus, Mother Mary, anybody from the Bible? NO! Why, because its a story, a fable like all the other stories humans have told over the ages. But, for some reason this Bible story stuck. Its just for the better. It makes sense that a simple stoy of a Guy that walked on water.......Discussion over, the God seed has been planted. Nothing else matters.Go pray.....

You will not see a lot of words in scripture. One is 'Trinity'. Yet, people accept it. And folks on this thread have been arguing about that meaning for a couple days now.
Another is the word Bible. Where does that word appear in the Bible?
So if you're going to make the statement that all of Christianity should be found in the books, I would ask you which books? Who's Bible? Why is it 'the Bible'? Who said its the Bible?
Does Jethro say those books are the Bible?
Does Jethro agree with someone else that says those books are the Bible?
I'll wait for your answer..
we will never know exactly what was or was not in the books of the bible/scriptures since we do not have access to them all,the word bible does not appear because it was not suppose to be written,but where does it come from? "the so called true church".christianity would not be found in all books since it is a creation of mans.was jesus a christian? or was he into judism? or any religion? he told his followers to go among the people and spread his "words" not my fathers catholic words,protestant words etc.just his words,so is religion really suppose to be apart of god? or jesus?he is king of the jews,not king of catholocism and so on,to be a follower in god you are suppose to believe in him,not some fancy dressed up buildings along with fancy dressed up men,calling themselves holy men.can you actually prove it? no you can't.due to the stupidity of man,we will never know the truth,books were burned,why? why not preserve them for future study,what did they hide from the world? one church was built a spiritual church,and it is universal,but it's not here on earth,if it truly exists at all.so far no one has proven that god does truly exist,we are grasping at light because we are afraid of the dark.

I am just pointing out to "you" and all Protestants, atheists and agnostics how "all of you" (hatefilled anti-catholics) use "any dirt you can dig up" to further your vengeance, hostility and rage
by purposely and conveniently "overlooking" the all of the "same immoral degredation (killing, sexual abuse and any and all sinful actions) of "your own failed religious and non-religious organizations and denominational beliefs". Jesus established, formed and initiated His Church---"to save sinners"! Just because some of its followers stray and commit sin, doesn't mean that Our Lords One True Church was not founded by Jesus Christ HIMSELF, to teach His infallible TRUTH..... Since the Reformation (Anti-Catholic bashing) has been the (desperate ploy) that the majority of "antagonistic" non-catholics use, in order to (unsuccessfully support) their own (half-truth)(half-heresy) "failed beliefs".
The other 1.168 Billion (faith-filled) Catholics around the world, "know the Truth" and that is why the Catholic Church continues to grow (each and every year) "up 1.5% in 2012 while ALL OTHER Protestant groups continue to decline in numbers (the majority of those converting to the TRUE FAITH and Salvation in Jesus Christ and His One (and only one) TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church---historically and biblically PROVEN for over 2000 years!!
stop using the same speech you have been given for thousands of posts,and simply answer my question,you condenm others who killed catholics and yet you stay silent on the needless,senseless killings of the catholic church,so tell me how many people did the church kill because they would not follow the church? this 1.5% growth you speak of are in third world uneducated countries,not happening in the u.s or europe,or other well educated countries,the church is taking advantage of the fact that these poor people do not know the true church history.if they did,you wouldn't have your 1.5% growth.why do you think the pope went to central america not to long ago? that's where your growth is.

Was just reading about his book "100 Biblical Arguments Against Sola Scriptura". The table of contents 'alone' is enough of an argument, and this is just one chapter!:
E. The Alleged Perspicuity of Scripture and the Necessity of Authoritative Interpretation (40-53)
40.“Desert Island” Minimalistic Christianity Is Not the Biblical Norm
41. The Historical Wisdom of the Church Is a Better Interpreter than Any Individual or Denomination
42. False Assumptions Can Lead Biblical Exegetes Astray, but the Church is a Sure Guide
43. The Bible Itself Teaches that it Can be Misinterpreted
44. Perspicuity and Denominationalism are at Odds
45. Protestantism is Radically Contradictory in How it Harmonizes and Systematizes “Plain” Scripture
46. The Bible Teaches that Biblical Interpretation is Inherently Necessary
47. Jesus Reveals Hidden Scriptures to the Disciples at Emmaus
48. Sincere Study Alone Does Not Guarantee Correct Interpretation of Scripture
49. Sola Scriptura Means It’s Always the Other Guy’s Problem
50. The Bible Never Lists Its “Essential” Teachings
51. The Bible Asserts that Its Teachings Have to Be “Opened”
52. Many Things in the Gospels Are Difficult to Understand: John 6 for Example
53. In the Old Covenant, Authoritative Teaching Authority Was Constantly Exercised

You're in the group that could be classified as 'too stupid to be Catholic'.
Hence, you're a victim; easy prey for cult leaders.

People on the outside of this thread may think I'm being to harsh.
But you and I both know what an ignorant Ideologue you are.
You been treated with the utmost respect for yrs. Yet, you ignore truth and continue posting propaganda and slander. Lies LTM!
You wine because Regina and others aren't nice to you anymore. Yet, you announce that you'd like to take down the Catholic Church brick by brick. You say you see the door to Hell when you look at the Vatican.
Respect you want? Well, maybe the first time you spew your garbage...but not the 700th time.

I am not as arrogant as your Pope to make such a claim.
The Holy Spirit gifts individuals 'PEOPLE' not a religious denomination. that is why I don't belong to one because I belong to Jesus.
That is what you don't understand, Clay.
Also if you look back over the posts from Preston, myself, confrinting, FOL, many of the other born again christians we are posting the same scriptures to you catholic's to prove where you are wrong in the catholic churches doctrine.
We agree on these scriptures and the whole Bible as Gods Holy Word.
It has total authority over anything man says.

The popes word or the catholic church has no creditablity to be calling it self the Only True Church of God.

A sure guide?

Terrorism called the Inquisitions? Galileo? Diplomatic immunity from justice for orphans -- thanks to Mussolini.

The church is a good church, but history and reality tell us that there is nothing perfect, no superior guidance, and plenty of faults.

2000 years after the supreme sacrifice, and only about 5% of humanity practice the "perfect message?"

90% of those had it drilled into them from early childhood.

Why not just try to avoid being comedy club material for a few decades and then start back in on being spiritually superior?

95% of humanity doesn't buy into the RCC's "perfect teachings" baloney -- and 90% of those had this drilled into them since early childhood.

We see their perfect teachings in action. Mexico City is the largest RCC-majority city on earth.

With it's RCC values, Catholic Mexico is a big narco-country today.

But what can we expect from a totalitarian RCC value system that brought us Hitler, Franco, and Saint Mussolini?

I really didn't mean a personal attack. And I don't think you're really stupid- as in IQ level.
And also, you seem genuinely loving towards your family and individual people in general.

For some reason, you embrace slander towards my faith. Propaganda essays filled with deception; false accusations against the CC.
When you say the Vatican is 'the door way to Hell' its incredibly insulting to me.

Your comments are based upon NOTHING other than first "one opinion", then "another opinion" and just more and "more additional opinions" all (laced with more of your (bogus) anti-catholic distorted church history. You don't put much stock in "ANYTHING" Catholic that is supported over and over again with bounified, abundant and (proven) Church History for over 2000 years. If there is "any hearsay" regarding Church History, it comes "directly" from your Protestant heretical "hack" historian writers, who will write or attempt to "debunk "anything" against the TRUTH of Jesus Christs historically and biblically PROVEN One True Apostolic Catholic Church.

Your understanding of the Bible is flawed. So is Prestons, Confrints and every other non catholic on this thread.
Can you get close to Jesus Christ by just reading Holy Scriptures? Yes. God is love. To read the Scriptures is to look into the mind of God. Its positive and good. Jesus won't reject someone like LTM opening her Bible and praying!
The issue is that you guys are using those very same scriptures without any authority to teach on it. You're over stepping your bounds. Your embracing incredible ignorance along the way.
You can't argue with the Catholic Church on Scriptural meanings. Its pointless. You can't prove them wrong because the scriptures were given to them to safeguard and teach.
This truth may make your blood boil, but oh well. Truth can't be compromised.
Notice the colossal doctrinal mess you are all in. Nomads in the world of sola scripture...
