The Protestant "propagandist" (vultures) are out in full force today. Just like you LTM,-----all of the vengeful, hostile and vindictive "FUNDIES" have wasted "little time" in spreading their anti-catholic "venom" on this forum about the Pope and the Church.

Sorry to disappoint you LTM, but you "really should get a grip" on the TRUTH of "reality" and the TRUE historical and biblically Truth of Jesus Christs One (and only) True Apostolic Catholic Church, that has, is and will (continue) to be the FULLNESS of the Faith and the FULLNESS of the TRUTH!---"Desperate "hate-filled anti-Catholic heretics, hypocrites and bigots like you, Confrinting, 4GVN, Michael, jethro8, justachristian and others have "come and gone" for over 2000 years---YET----the One True Apostolic Catholic Church established by Jesus HIMSELF----------LIVES ON!!!---(and will continue to LIVE ON!!

Hogwash!!!!
ekklesia, a calling out, i.e.(concretely) a popular meeting, especially a religious congregation (Jewish synagogue, or Christian community of members on earth or saints in heaven or both):--assembly, church.
Better yet, define the Kingdom.

Is Jesus ruling and in charge now?

If not, when? If yes, to whom does He rule over?

The Church's relationship with the Muslims. "The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind's judge on the last day." (CCC, par. 841)
Now the Catholic Catechism says Muslims worship the same God as Christians.
Any one see a problem with this statement?
Why because Muslims reject Jesus as Lord and savior so clearly they don't recognize the same God as Abraham as they deny his seed Jesus the Christ
One more big Reason the RCC is not the one true church revealed in Scriptures its a sugar coated lie.

No, I don't see a problem with that statement at all - because it is apparent that they both are NOT worshiping the God of Abraham at all.
-
I am totally amazed at how Muslims say they are one of the THREE Abrahamic Religions - NOTHING could be further from the truth! yet everyone simply accepts it as fact...... Abraham had ONE religion, not three! Just because they are DESCENDANT from a SON of Abraham (Ishmael), does NOT mean they are practicing the RELIGION of Abraham.
They.
Are.
NOT!
This is simply the Black Sheep of the family going out and *doing their own thing* and smearing the good name of their Father Abraham, and claiming they are still an upstanding member of the 'family' while waging war with those who actually continue to practice the Religion of Abraham.
-
Jesus pointed out this hypocrisy when he said:
http://niv.scripturetext.com/j ohn/8.htm
The Children of Abraham

31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said,“IF you hold to my teaching, you are REALLY MY DISCIPLES. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

33 They answered him,“We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”

34 Jesus replied,“I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. 37 I know YOU ARE ABRAHAM’S DESCENDENTS. Yet you are ready to kill me, because you have NO ROOM FOR MY WORD. 38 I am telling you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and YOU DO WHAT YOU HAVE HEARD FROM YOUR FATHER.”

39 “Abraham is our father,” they answered.

“IF YOU WERE ABRAHAM'S CHILDREN,” said Jesus,“THEN YOU WOULD DO THE THINGS ABRAHAM DID. 40 As it is, YOU ARE DETERMINED TO KILL ME, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. ABRAHAM DID NOT DO SUCH THINGS. 41 YOU are DOING THE THINGS YOUR OWN FATHER DOES.”

“We are not illegitimate children,” they protested.“The only Father we have is God himself.”

The Children of the Devil

42 Jesus said to them,“If God were your Father <clipped>

43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because YOU ARE UNABLE TO HEAR WHAT I SAY. 44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a MURDERER from the beginning, NOT HOLDING TO THE TRUTH, for there is no truth in him. WHEN HE LIES, HE SPEAKS HIS NATIVE LANGUAGE, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! 46 Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? 47 HE WHO BELONGS TO GOD HEARS WHAT GOD SAYS. THE REASON YOU DO NOT HEAR IS THAT YOU DO NOT BELONG TO GOD.”
-
But, this "Abrahamic" lie, which has been spread the world over, is not unlike the RCC lie that Peter was the first Pope.

The followers of Jesus actually follow what Jesus said and call no man their Father.

"HE WHO BELONGS TO GOD HEARS WHAT GOD SAYS. THE REASON YOU DO NOT HEAR IS THAT YOU DO NOT BELONG TO GOD."

If you must respond, do so with a blessing, and not a curse. She NEEDS a blessing, and no curse you could pronounce would make her worse than she is, so it is pointless.

You too Hojo. Glad to have been here with you. I actually don't live in Plymouth, but in a smaller northern suburb of Minneapolis. My parish is one of the largest in the state and my family has 3 generations going there since 1967. You may be able to figure it out, but I'll avoid saying it here due to the unstable characters sliming up this board. I'll keep you in my prayers. God Bless.

Clay, this post should be a big hint to you.

This fellow is Church of Christ, and they believe they are the only ones who will be going to Heaven, as they were directly established by Christ in he apostolic age, and were in hiding for 1600 years.

Fon't waste your time. He doesn't want an understanding of the Catholic faith and our basis in Christ; he eants to try to prove that you are wrong and he is right.

Probably a good idea Rob!..... As a ex-Protestant, I know (too well) the "Protestant game" and the "anti-catholic "build up" of hostility and vengeance which has brought them to where they are. We both would agree that "no one" will change this (Reformation thinking) except through Prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit --manifested in Jesus Christ. Thanks for your response!

During the tenor of this Pope the church has been riddled with scandals and many of the MOST HOLY of catholics defying the church.

Most catholic nuns in america in turmoil with the vatican., with no end in sight. Priests forming UNIONS wanting more say. Sex abuse scandals right around the world. Cardinal Gomez from LA, stripping Cardinal Mahony of administrative duties..........catholics not going to church, using birth control and all the while the Pope is screaming calling THEM! sinners.

Its obvious this Pope has failed in bringing continuity to the followers.

Maybe the next Pope will have a different approach and not be referred to as the ROTTWEILER as so many have called him.

Interesting times ahead.
