One day Percy a housework-challenged husband decided to wash his Sweatshirt. Seconds
after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to me,'What setting do I use on
the washing machine?'

'It depends,' I replied.'What does it say on your shirt?'

He yelled back,' OHIO STATE !'

And they say blondes are dumb....

gopher wood:(Christian Religious Writings / Bible) the wood used in the construction of Noah's ark, thought to be a type of cypress (Genesis 6:14)

Thanks for proving my words!!!!

Neither you, nor anyone else can show me the proper noun "Church" in the following.....you can't, because it ain't in there...the noun "church" is....

Mt 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against

Nor can you nor anyone else show me "Roman Catholic church"....."church " as in Scripture....

wonder who would know the jews or you.

The Jewish Encyclopedia believes it was most likely a translation of the Babylonian "gushure i÷ erini" (cedar-beams), or the Assyrian "giparu" (reed).[3] The Aramaic Targum Onkelos, considered by many Jews to be an official translation of the Hebrew scripture renders this word as &#1511;&#1491;&#15 12;&#1493;&#1505; (qadros) i.e., cedar[SEE THIS}.

The Syriac Peshitta translates this word as &#1829;&#1834;&#18 33;&#1808; (‘arqa), box wood.[4]

The Cypress tree flowers March through May. It is found all across Israel. The Cypress was brought by the Jewish National Fund at the end of the nineteen century. It was planted to break the wind around many orchards.

I don't know because I may be wrong but I have such an uneasy feeling about President Obama for some reason.

Could it possibly be that he is an anti-Christ covertly? I'll be praying about this man that God will pull back the veil and let me see if there is something about this man that Christians should be concerned about. I just got this feeling after he was elected for a second term. I sure hope I'm wrong though.

You need to read more.
the NT also says scripture is sufficient for all Chruch issues.

No sir, the New Testament does not say its sufficient for all Church issues. That's ridiculous and you know it.

the problem here is that everyone except me and a couple others are trying to out do each other in bible knowledge,no one is really trying to solve the mystery of the churches belief and if a god does truly exist.from what i have seen here is no one has the answer,i have my theory just you have yours,i believe that the one god theory is wrong,no just entity exists,if he does,where did he come from? why did it take billions of years before he decided to create man/woman? was he busy creating life else where before us? there are a lot of people who believe aliens did actually visit this planet going back 5000 yrs and more,there are credible drawings dating that far back of strange objects in the sky,and strange looking beings,and there is the painting of the maddonna with child,in the upper right corner next to the sun there is a flying object in the sky in the painting,which was done thousands of years before man considered being able to fly,and the giant carvings in south america that can only be seen from the sky as actual legitamate patterns dug right into the mountain top (can't remember the name of the mountains) how can you explain it? they hasd primitive tools back then,all hand tools,and the pyrimids so well carved out stones you can't slide a piece of paper between them,all done by hand and moved how? the stones weighed tons,how'd they do it? these are credible because you can see it,touch it,it's undeniable.but when it comes to god/jesus we have nothing to support the scriptures/bible,no evidence whatso ever,why is that? and is there any proof out there god actually exists??

Monday's (Feb. 11) surprising announcement by Pope Benedict XVI that he was resigning from the papacy struck some observers like a bolt out of the blue.

And a few hours later, an actual bolt of lightning struck St. Peter's Basilica, the centerpiece of the Vatican and one of the holiest sites in Christendom, NBC News reported.

Was the lightning strike, coming just hours after Pope Benedict's announcement, evidence of God's wrath, or some ominous sign from above? Perhaps, but it was more likely the natural result of a rainstorm that was passing over Rome at the time.

Lightning often strikes religious symbols, because they are usually placed high in the sky and are, in many cases, the highest thing around. Coupled with the fact that they're often made of metal, lightning striking religious statuary or other icons seems quite normal.

Brazil's 130-foot "Christ the Redeemer" statue atop Rio de Janeiro's Sugarloaf Mountain, for example, has been struck by lightning several times since it was completed in 1931.

Secular objects are also often struck by lightning. Airplanes are struck by lightning frequently, and the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and other tall buildings have all been hit.

St. Peter's Basilica is the tallest dome in the world at 448 feet (137 meters) from the floor to the cross that was added to the very top by Pope Clement VIII in the 16th century. A lightning rodpoints skyward from the top of that cross — it's likely that this is what was struck by lightning Monday.

JETHRO:if it is a sign from a god it is a warning sign,it's telling the church to start fresh and new, and be what it is meant to be, a place of worship that men,women,and children don't have to fear.confess their sins to the world and start anew.

Preston, you're not allowed to determine if Saban is saved or not.
Even under the criteria set forth by the born again movement, Saban would be covered, because in his heart he chose to be baptized. He chose Christ by going to the Baptismal fountain. The initial act of choosing Jesus Christ; or choosing to be baptized came before the water was poured...it couldn't be any other way unless his uncle tackled him and forced water upon him.
His heart sought and accepted Christ when he initially decided to be baptized.

Catholics are different, our parents bring us to Jesus. And their faith and commitment initiates us into Christianity like the Jews at circumcision. Are we automatically saved at 3 months? Of course not. Nobody is automatically saved as long as you have free will. You can lose your salvation anytime you want.

Question for Catholics here. If the Pope is the RCC chief and has total authority over the RCC and he decides to resign,why can't he appoint his own successor instead of having itdone by the Cardinals? If youhave total authority over the RCC, don't he have authority and say so over who he wants to succeed him?
JETHRO:that's the million dollar question,the RCC believes the pope is suppose to be gods/jesus' eyes and ears on earth (vicar of christ) so he would be told by god directly on who to select to replace him,but it doesn't work that way because he is no more of a holy man than i am,he is a corporate figure head that's all,their history proves it is not a true holy place,such a place would not have to do what it has done to get people to believe it is really a holy place,the true church of a god would take care of his children, not brutalize them like they have for 2000 years,they do put on a good show,but that's about all they can really do,instead of buying the crystal church for i believe somewhere around $50 million,they could of used that money to help out a lot of people who are dying of starvation,disease,and brutality,it does not make sense.if it truly is gods aledged church it would act like it is,but it doesn't,it does the opposite.it can't be denied,the history is there.

TO MY GOOD FRIEND POPE HOJO:you stated the mud slinging and harshness going on here was started by a protestant,agnostic,athiests and michael,not exactly true,second post by a catholic named tony who is from arizona:Elizabeth wrote:
As someone who is catholic and was raised in the faith, I find this truly offensive that the Pope would make a statement like this. It is making me seriously consider leaving the church. As long as popele believe in God and the holy trinity, why does it matter whether they believe as catholics, methodists, lutherans, etc? I think Benedict has gone too far with this statement and I do believe it is going to hurt the catholic church in the long run.
The fact that you said that the Pope's statement is making you 'seriously consider leaving the church', just reinforces why it does matter whether people are Catholic, methodist, lutheran, etc. Spiritual relativsm is not new, you and those like you, who believe that the truth of what the Church teaches is somehow subject to whether you agree with it or not are exactly why the Pope is saying what he is saying. He's not saying something new, it's what the Church has ALWAYS taught! Your comments are just proving the points that the Pope made in the homily he gave at conclave before his election: http://www.oecumene.radiovaticana.org/en1/Art ...
You would do well to read this and anyone else who may be guilty of "being tossed to and fro by every wave of doctrine"... Eph. 4:14......JETHRO:SOUNDS A LITTLE HARSH TO ME,WHAT DOES EVERYONE THINK?

It most likely is a coincidence. However, if it is a sign from God, it is not an angry sign.. People around Rome were sad that day and worried about the future. Electricity coming down from the 'Heavens' to the Vatican would signify a jolt of energy. Nothing was damaged and no one got hurt.

The timing of it just hrs after the Pope resigned is interesting to say the least.

He resigned.
He doesn't have "total authority" over the RCC. For instance, he cannot introduce doctrine on his own, etc.
if the pope does not have total control of the church,how could he be the vicar of christ? he is suppose to be able to speak to god directly, and everything he says and does is done with the blessing of god.is this just a ruse? he is not what the vatican council says he is?
