Go ahead....be my guest....but, when you get there you will still find that my info was not from Webster but from Strong's Lexicon defining the Greek word for church as found in Scripture.
Nothing will change that fact...
I'm sorry if I offended you by saying you quoted Webster when it was Strong. A nice sit down study with Strong's Concordance to determine the differences between the church and the Kingdom should prove eye opening!

Don't any Catholics read their pope approved NABre Bible...

Here is what it says about the word "church"...

There are several possibilities for an Aramaic original. Jesusí church means the community that he will gather and that, like a building, will have Peter as its solid foundation. That function of Peter consists in his being witness to Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of the living God.

Does anyone see this saying one thing about any Christianity denomination????!!!!!

Fasting is a good thing. We should keep it to ourselves and it can be anytime.
I don't know why there would be a specific date set aside for it. I've not read anything about the Ash Wednesday either.
What would a good Catholic consider to be "adding to the Word of God?" Is there an example you could give me?
Adding to the word of God? I don't know what you're saying. Are you saying when Catholics go to Ash Wednesday Mass and receive the ash on our forehead - to remind us of our human mortality and to begin the 40 days of fasting before Easter, that we are adding to the word of God???
surely you see the significance of 40 days of fasting...

consider Daniel 9:3 "I turned to the Lord God, pleading in earnest prayer, with fasting, sackcloth and ashes"

"that day they fasted and wore sackcloth, they sprinkled ashes on their heads and tore their cloths"
Maccabees 3: 4-7

That is not the current thread...this is:
basileia, properly, royalty, i.e.(abstractly) rule, or (concretely) a realm (literally or figuratively):--kingdom,+ reign.
Does not show "church" as one of its definition.....I am not surprised!!!!!
I'm surprised you chose to ignore those two short questions. One was my asking you whether Jesus is a King? If so, what does He rule over?

If you're not comfortable answering the questions that's OK. We all know the answers to them. Therefore there is a Kingdom in place, currently.

It was the confession Peter gave that is the Rock upon which Christ would build his church. The confession, not Peter.

And....evidently no Catholics study their Encyclopedia!!!!

Here is what it says about "church"...

The term church (Anglo-Saxon, cirice, circe; Modern German, Kirche; Swedish, Kyrka) is the name employed in the Teutonic languages to render the Greek ekklesia (ecclesia), the term by which the New Testament writers denote the society founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Does anybody see this talking about any Christian denomination????!!!!

Wearing sackcloth will be very uncomfortable.

The question about "adding to the Word" can be best framed within the following scriptures:
1 Cor. 4:6
Prob. 30:5-6
2 John 1:9
Gal. 1:8
Can you give me an example or two of these warnings coming to fruition?

One more question. When I do not participate in Ash Wednesday and the 40 days of fasting, which scriptures am I violating?

Catholicism is so deep rooted in scripture its beautiful.
I advise you to check our claims against scripture. I also advise you to read the writings of the first Christians to see what they understood about Christianity. You'll see a remarkable similarity to Catholic teachings.

I have much respect for the writings of many of the early Christians. There's quite a bit we can learn from their writings. Many of those early writings help us prove to atheists the validity of scripture.
I am however very wary of any of the teachings found within any writings that contradict scripture. We're warned that if even an Angel tries to teach you something that contradicts scripture to ignore it. I don't think the Spirit would've allowed that to be said unless it was A WARNING OF WHAT WOULD EVENTUALLY HAPPEN. HEED THAT WARNING.

Great post, Saban fan.

*A WARNING OF WHAT WOULD EVENTUALLY HAPPEN. HEED THAT WARNING.*

Absolutely! Just as Jesus himself WARNING his followers to Call No Man Your Father ...

God will NOT be MOCKED and they are directly mocking God and His Son when going against the words of Christ.

http://bible.cc/galatians/6-7.htm
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
