What happens if someone in your congregation disagrees with your interpretations?
Do you
A. Show them the door.
B. Try to reason with them and get them to see things your way.
C. If they insist their Biblically correct, do you scream 'damn it, I'm the authority here. You accept my interpretations or get out... And by they way, you'll be going to hell now"
Im just saying. I read those scripture verses and I don't agree with you. They couldn't have been children of Mary.
If you had not been brought up to believe the lies that you have been told and were able to [think] for yourself(a trait that you admitted that you dont do) then you would know the Bible and those who walked with jesus said they were his siblings.

There's none so blind as those who will not see.

Psalm 69:8
8 I am a foreigner to my own family,
a stranger to my own mother’s children;
Psalm 69:8
8 I have become estranged from my brothers
And an alien to my mother’s sons.
Now how can any EDUCATED person, twist Psalm 69:8 around to make it mean something else?

The scriptures also state, Jesus was the FIRST born son of Mary. That means more sons to come.

Catholics are locked in a dilema. They believe ONLY what their church teaches them, not whats in their hearts.

I'm not lying. I never lie on here. I don't need to lie on here.
I'm asking you for some logic here. Did Mary not tell her other children that their brothers dad was God?
No Preston, Mary did not have other children. No Protestants believed that either until a couple hundred yrs ago.

You'll exclaim these "truths", but yet you don't seem to acknowledge them to be true:
- men created the Bible
- men chose what texts were to be selected
- religion is man-made
- "thought to be inspired by God" - not afraid to admit the "Self" involved, but refuse to acknowledge it is "Self".
Why?
Not being honest with yourself?
Almost all religious beliefs from before 2,000 years ago that were practiced in the mediteranean, used the same Customs, traditions and elements of belief that christianity adopted for themselves thousands of years later.

There is very little UNIQUE about christianity, that wasn't practiced 1,000 years before.

If all these pre-christian beliefs could have put copyrights on all their customs, and traditions, christianity could have never started.

Elders...

1 Timothy 5:17-18

17 The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor,~~~~~especially those whose work is preaching and teaching.~~~~~

18 For Scripture says,“Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,” and “The worker deserves his wages.”

Paul and Barnabas had disputed such a claim, but were unsuccessful in convincing the brethren and the matter was not resolved as it should have been.

So what did they do?

Acts 15:4-6

4 When they came to Jerusalem, they were welcomed by the church and the apostles and elders, to whom they reported everything God had done through them.

5 Then some of the believers who belonged to the party of the Pharisees stood up and said,“The Gentiles must be circumcised and required to keep the law of Moses.”

6 ~~~~~The apostles and elders met to consider this question.~~~~~

Bingo!

Even Clay's own Bible reads "brothers and sisters."

Q: Why would Clay's own Bible read "brothers and sisters?"

A: Because replacing with the word "cousins" would make some Bible verses sound absurd.

The word brother and sister did not mean biological in the time of the Bible. It meant just about anybody in a whole range of relationship to the person.
This is why the Catholic Church from its earliest possible inception, safely taught Mary being ever virgin. The Orthodox and all the first Protestant Churches also teach that Mary was ever virgin.
Only recently did the cult of born agains - without authority - took it upon themselves to teach scriptures that do not belong to them in the first place.

Now, why an Atheist and a radial bigot would care about this Catholic teaching is beyond me . Don't believe it. Who cares?

Wrong!

The first Christians were the Nazarenes, who accepted the virgin birth but not any perpetual virgin. That was found only at Rome's Church (east & west)

Better question is, why would Rome create this false doctrine? They take the mother & child worship from previous Simiramis & Tammuz, but these were not virgin.

Originally Rome did not advocate the perpetual virgin Mary. It wasnt until later they invented this elevating Mary to godlike status i.e. the Queen of Heaven.

Ok...if the New Testament; the 27 books you apparently agree are scriptural, came 50 yrs after Constantine...how do you explain the evil wicked Catholic Church determining the books you now hold in your hand?
Are you saying the devil determined sacred scripture??
~~~

As one said in a former post you Constantine-Catholics are always

attempting to place some implication of a sort

when you are faced with the truth.

You always have some foolish retort.... in you attempt to put/add words

into a post to distort the truth.

Te results being that you never learn any thing other than that which you have been brainwashed to believe.

I have always been given the option to question what I have been told

and measure it by the Bible..

You evidently are incarcerated, and bound with no free will to examine what you have been taught...

WHEN THE DOOR IS OPEN TO TRUTH... AND THE LIGHT IS ON

You are a slave/subservient to TO Constantine-ism... with no freedom

or option of thought.

how come Babylon is also called roma, but when the Book of revelations speaks of babylon igoing to be destroyed, they aint the same. lies and more lies coming from your church and you are afraid to admit it, since that means that all you have been taught .is of no value when it comes to your salvation.

Nope, sorry. These verses do not call the Blessed Virgin Mary the mother of anyone but Jesus. You non-Christians are always trying to interpret books you know nothing about. Maybe it's best if you just stick to the writings of your cult and leave the Christian scriptures to the Church from whence they came.

Nice try, though.

The first verse starts out:“Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James”.... It is thought that Jude was probably being humble because he did not believe that his own half-brother, Jesus, was the Messiah during His earthly days (nor did his other brothers - John 7:5).
You're saying Jesus's own brothers not only thought He was a liar, they thought their Mom was a liar too.
And Joseph never explained that their brothers real dad was God??
I see why this protestant belief is only a couple hundred yrs old.
Got any other shockers you uncovered hidden in scripture?
