One is either in Christ or not in Christ .. there is only one body of christ .. the RCC claims non-catholics are not true Christians ??.. well .. it seems to me .. the RCC points a little too mucheth to itself .... no church can save anyone .. only a person can save .. the one who God sent .. Jesus .... all Christians should be pointing to him .. not their "church"

If the holy spirit is suppose to be guiding the decision process of the voting cardinals, why do all the cardinals not vote for the same cardinal to become pope?
Shouldn't their voting be 100% unanimous? Do some cardinals not get the memo from the HS?

......Joseph of Arimethea, who took custody of Yeshua's (Jesus) body, was Jewish.(Luke 23:50-52) and he laid the body in his own new tomb (Matt. 27:59-60). Therefore, Yeshua (Jesus) was buried in a Jewish cemetery. He was also buried according to Jewish custom/tradition of the time, buried before sundown.(John 19:40). Without doubt, Jesus died a Jew.

His aunt Elizabeth was a jew, as was his uncle Zachariah. Jesus was circumcised as per jewish custom.

Matthew 2:2 (Mattityahu 2:2)

..."Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the east and have come to worship Him."



Being a Jew is not only ones religious belief but its your heritage culture if born and raised in a jewish state. People born in Scotland are for ever scottish no matter what religion they change to or whatever country they move to.

Once a cultural jew always a jew.

Whether or not you consider yourself a Protestant, you still are, because you are not Catholic, and there isn't any other options in Christianity - only Catholicism and Protestantism.
Unless you have a word for the SBC belief. SBCism?
C'mon Oxbow, you aren't that ignorant, right?
BTW - to even call yourself "Christian" is a false label you've applied, too. One will have to beleive in all of Jesus to claim all of this title....and you don't.

during the ww2,and the 1st iraqi war, the jewish soldiers were asked if they would like to change theirs in case they were captured. this is a fact.

The bible stories were created to make square pegs fit in round holes.

The crucifixion as only told in the NT. Small crowd of people were given a choice who to crucify. Jesus or Barabas. 50/50 choice. Right? How would christianity have started if the crowd screamed Barabas instead of Jesus? Would the story then have been jesus lived for our sins?

.......50/50 chance and the crowd guessed right.....UNBELIEVABLE!

How do you know what really happened back then? The only stories about a miracle man jesus in the entire MEDITERANEAN during that era were told in the scriptures ONLY.

No jewish/roman writers, scribes, statesmen, or philosophers ever mention a miracle man named Jesus in all of their writings.

Can you verify with certainty that the 4 gospels were written by the names associated with them?

UNBELIEVABLE!

I am not dodging anything. You were taught to believe through family INDOCTRINATION what is written in the bible as fact. Yet it is only a belief otherwise it would be stated as a fact.

The first 300 long years of christianity and it was all over the map. So much for upon this rock. There were dozens of christians sects, cults, and beliefs each group with their own seperate sets of beliefs, rules, regulations fighting with each other burning down each others places of worship and most of them ONLY believing that their leader was a spirit only and never existed as a human.

If it wasn't for Constantine and his manpower to strong arm the weakest christian groups, official catholicism would have never got off the ground, and today, if it wasn't for family hand me down INDOCTRINATION christianity would probably have died out like all the man/god beliefs that came before.

I was raised a catholic, and soon believed that much of what was written, made no common sense, and today after 2,000 long years only 17% of the world is catholic, and what 4% and 42,000 protestant beliefs.

Christianity claims the OT and the NT form the bible. Yet christians disagree with so much of the OT yet it forms their religion....UNBELIEVABLE!

In 1945, more than 4,000 American GIs were imprisoned at Stalag IX-B at Bad Orb, approximately 30 miles northwest of Frankfurt-on-Main. One day the commandant had prisoners assembled in a field. All Jews were ordered to take one step forward. Word ran through the ranks not to move. The non-Jews told their Jewish comrades they would stand with them. The commandant said the Jews would have until six the next morning to identify themselves. The prisoners were told, moreover, that any Jews in the barracks after 24 hours would be show, as would anyone trying to hide or protect them.

American Jewish soldiers had to decide what to do. All had gone into battle with dog tags bearing an H for Hebrew. Some had disposed of their IDs when they were captured, others decided to do so after the commandants threat. Approximately 130 Jews ultimately came forward. They were segregated and placed in a special barracks. Some 50 noncommissioned officers from the group were taken out of the camp, along with the non-Jewish NCOs.

The official Dog Tag required the following information: Name, Service Number, Date of Tetanus Inoculation, Blood Type, Person to Notify, Religion. US Army Spec No. 34-18, dated 15 February 1939 called for production of a thin metal copper-nickel alloy identification tag (i.e. Monel).http://www.med-dept.com /dog_tags.php

Last Look: Savoring a Private Zion
By Debra B. Darvick
----------
Dog tags. When you get right down to it, the military's dog tag classification forced me to reclaim MY Judaism. In the fall of 1990 things were heating up in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. I'd been an Army captain and a helicopter maintenance test pilot for a decade and received notice that I'd be transferred to the First Cavalry Division which was on alert for the Persian Gulf war. Consequently, I also caught wind of the Department of Defense "dog tag dilemma" vis--vis Jewish personnel.

Then as now Jews were forbidden by Saudi law to enter the country. But our Secretary of Defense flat out told the King of Saudi Arabia, "We have Jews in our military. They've trained with their units and they're going. Blink and look the other way." With Kuwait occupied and the Iraqis at his border, King Faud did the practical thing. We shipped out, but there was still the issue of classification.

Normally the dog tags of Jewish servicemen are imprinted with the word "Jewish." But Defense, fearing that this would put Jewish soldiers at further risk should they be captured on Iraqi soil, substituted the classification "Protestant B" on the tags. I didn't like the whole idea of reclassifying Jews as Protestant anything and decided to leave mine alone. I figured if I were captured, it was in God's hands. Changing my tags was tantamount to denying my religion and I couldn't swallow that. In September 1990 1 went off to defend a country I was prohibited from entering. The "Jewish" on my dog tag remained as clear and unmistakable as the American star painted on the hood of every Army truck.
