We must also heed the warnings of Scripture concerning angelic beings: there are fallen angels who work for Satan who will do anything to subvert and destroy us. Galatians 1:8 warns us to beware of any “new” gospel, even if it is delivered by an angel. Colossians 2:18 warns against the worship of angels. Every time in the Bible when men bowed down before angels, those beings firmly refused to be worshiped. Any angel who receives worship, or who does not give glory to the Lord Jesus, is an imposter. Second Corinthians 11:14-15 states that Satan and his angels disguise themselves as angels of light in order to deceive and lead astray anyone who will listen to them.
"Do whatever he tells you."

Uh, huh, yeah, that's definitely satan leading people astray.

This is the type of inexcusable ignorance that comes from the born agains mouths. I could never ever entertain the idea of being an Evangelical born again. You simply require people to be stupid. I can't do that....

Gudalupe, Mexico 1531

Juan Diego comes across a lady upon a hill. He reports it to the Bishop and said he thinks its the Mother of Christ. The Bishop told Juan to go back and ask for a sign revealing her identity. Mary gathered some Castillian roses - that weren't even native to Mexico- but mysteriously were blooming in December no less. She put them in his cloak and asked him to open it in front of the Bishop. When Juan did this, the roses fell to the floor and the famous image of Our Lady of Gudalupe was on the fabric.

What makes this story remarkable even more, is the scientific tests done to the cloak. The image is not painted on with a brush. It was done in one stroke or one step. In 1933, biochemist Richard Kuhn analyzed the fabric and found that the pigments used were of no known source - whether animal, mineral or vegetable.

Seemingly overnight, Mexico went from indigenous to Christian.

Now, even if this story is exaggerated a little (and i know there is some controversy involved)....But did Satan really just convert a million people to Jesus Christ?? This is what i mean when i say, you guys require a complete lack of logic to form your faith.
"but they are not converted to Christ, they are worshiping Mary now" ugh
Did I also mention you require people to be ignorant?

You are the one that believes the fables about Mary the morher of Jesus..
Even to rob her of her Children and deny her the honor of being a wife and mother to them..
In your own selfish motive to worship her you place her in a position that violates her privilege of being a Biblical example of a wife and a mother, to all her family...
FOR SHAME

1Ti 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
1Ti 2:10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
1Ti 2:11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
1Ti 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
1Ti 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
1Ti 2:14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
1Ti 2:15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

1Pe 3:1 Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
1Pe 3:2 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.
1Pe 3:3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
1Pe 3:4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
1Pe 3:5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
1Pe 3:6 Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.
Its interesting that no known Christian group, prior to the 19th century, believed Mary had other children. None of the Protestant reformers believed it. No Orthodox believed it.
But the Born Agains decided she did. It seems they could not comprehend the Bible and decided to view it thru a 19th century mindset. They saw 'brothers and sisters' in the Bible and said "duh, it says right there that Mary had other children, how could everyone miss that for 1900 yrs?"
You prove that sola scripture and private interpretations of it are a complete disaster.

Only in the pedophile cadre

UNITED STATES
San Francisco Chronicle

David Wiegand

Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God: Documentary. 9 p.m. Monday HBO.

What did the Vatican know and when did it know it?

That's the first question posed in Oscar winner Alex Gibney's new documentary, "Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God," airing Monday on HBO. The second question is when did the church start covering it up?

While we have become aware of multiple cases of priests molesting children in recent years, the church received its first abuse complaint against a Spanish priest in the fourth century. In more recent times, Gibney contends, the Vatican knew about pedophilic priests for decades and engaged in a campaign to sweep the matter under the rug.

What was once seen as primarily an American issue is now viewed, sadly, as universal. Ever since the Boston Globe reported extensively in 2002 on the magnitude of the problem and the church's elaborate and highly effective campaign to cover it up, we have been given a steady stream of reminders in the media of what the church is doing to defend itself, how much it is costing the church to settle various legal cases and, most of all, how many lives have been affected.

Gibney gets to the big picture, but his real focus is what sets "Mea Culpa" apart from other films about pedophile priests: A group of men who, as deaf students at St. John's School in Milwaukee, were routinely molested by a deceptively genial priest named the Rev. Lawrence Murphy in the 1950s and '60s. It is estimated that he molested more than 200 children at the school before persistent complaints by the former students prompted the church to do what it did too often with pedophile priests: move them away in the hope the complaints would stop.

YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE FIRST PROTESTANT GROUP THAT EVER EXISTED.
Only a "desperate and reckless minister" such as you Confrinting, that is so "insecure" in his own irresponsible" bible only preaching, would make a "foolish statement" such as this..... Jesus Christ One (and only) True Apostolic Catholic Church, never has, nor ever will be connected to your Protestant Group of heretics...... There is "absolutely nothing" that makes the Catholic Church or its Doctrine (which is totally grounded in Jesus Christ) "be or have any part" of your "distorted and agtagonistic doctrine), the lies, condemnation, and judgmental beligerance toward the Catholic Church!! You and the rest of your other 42,000+ contradicting "protestant pot of preaching propagandists" have and will continue to remain" (On Your own), as half-truth Christians, that have "REJECTED" the FULLNESS of the TRUTH and the FAITH of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Its called KARMA. It always comes around.......and its biting the behind of the church right now.
KARMA is just another one of your anti-catholic "propaganda sources" that is grounded in Hunduism and Buddism which believes in reincarnation. It is also "loaded" in new age baggage" which parallel all the the "loaded diced" comments of more distortions, lies and exaggerated BS that you are "so famous for"! You, Michael, are becoming more and more "desperate" to spread your anti-catholic (hate and hostility) with each comment you make. Your antagonism and vengeance toward Jesus Christ and His One True Catholic Church, only "digs a deeper and deeper" hole for climb out of as you just continue to make a "fool of yourself" by spreading "more whoppers than burger king"!!

I don't make up the stories Anthony they come along as they do. Thanks to your church leaders themselves. The arch-diocese of Los Angeles just posted the stories of hundreds of priests that have been bad. Right on the arch-diocese website. I wonder what the followers will say when they start reading how big of FOOLS THEY HAVE BEEN for all these years, yet YOU again, keep defending these guys.
Catholics themselves are the reason these stories have gone on so long. Catholics themselves are culpable for much of what has happened always looking the other way and remaining ever SILENT never demanding accounability.
You get what you get.
Very sad.
I will always defend people taken advantage of, whether men, women or children......you should try it.

after they're caught with their pants pulled down ... it's kind o' hard to cover their backsides, don't you think?

people are screaming for transparency, and the Church now has no other choice.

Had they exercised good judgement rather than covering this up for CENTURIES ... it would be a whole different story.
