Is this your way of telling me that you cannot locate anything in the Catechism to buttress your earlier claim?
Hissy fits typically let me know I won the point in question.
Your whole life depends on the catechism? Can you make decisions yourself without going to the catholic playbook?

If you DAN can't trust your own church leaders to lead good moral lives, the catechism is just another book of rules and regulations that YOU MUST FOLLOW, but many church officials don't follow themselves.........BUSTED!

When authorities in your church, had stated that others were not worthy, do you Dan, say the church authorities are WRONG?......

You have yet to answer that........I wonder why!

Why do you FEAR to question your church leaders Dan? Popes who believed and informed others that non catholics were not worthy. Embroiled in scandal after scandal, as if the catechism never existed.

UNBELIEVABLE!

HOW TO RECEIVE CHRIST AS ONE'S PERSONAL SAVIOR IS GIVEN (BY THE APOSTLE PAUL)
IN THE BOOK OF ROMANS...
IT READS..
Rom 10:6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven?(that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
Rom 10:7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep?(that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
-->.NOTE<--
Rom 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Rom 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
-->NATIONALITY OR EARTHLY CHURCH AFFILIATION MAKES NOT DIFFERENCE (ALL MUST COME THE SAME WAY ....NO ONE IS EXEMPT....NO ONE IS REFUSED)<--
Rom 10:12 --> For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
Rom 10:13 --> For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
The way IS SO EASY ...THE SUPER INTELLIGENT ....CAN'T COMPREHEND IT...
They attempt to figure it out...and since they cant ...they reject it
or try to earn it...
BUT A CHILD ..just accepts/receives it by faith ...
THEY CAN FIND IT EASILY..
~~~
JESUS SAID..
Mar_10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
Luk_18:17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.
...
Isa 35:8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness;
the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
Isa 35:9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
Isa 35:10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
Act_16:31 And they said,
==>Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. <--
What you have psotet I agree with however that does not answer in his question in it's entireity now does it.

God was the light on day one until the sun was created on day four as He will be in the new earth.

Oh, Please.

IF God WAS the *light*(of creation) why did He need to say "Let There Be Light" of creation?

Of course God is Light. He has always been light. But there has not always been *creation*- and that is where you fail.
-
There was a time when the universe DID NOT exist and God made it exist... Hence: Let There BE light (let there be the existence of light apart from God)... Let there BE The "Big Bang" (let physics begin) whatever you want to call it - before He created it, IT wasn't there.
-
And if he wants to call it LIGHT he can call it LIGHT.
But notice:
He DIDN'T call *it* GOD.
-
He didn't call it God for a reason. It is his *creation* and that is why he called it *creation.*
-
Therefore: On the PURELY PHYSICAL REALM ... HE did INDEED *create* LIGHT. He himself said so.

A more complicated Law of Physics is: E=MC^2 ... where "C" is the speed of light.
-
Now ... on Day One of Creation, when God said, "Let there be light." (Or, "Let there be a Big Bang.")... matter was moving MUCH FASTER than it is moving today - in fact, during the First Three Minutes of Creation - matter almost approached the speed of light. We don't know exactly how fast that was. We don't know how much time, from OUR perspective, it took for the initial expansion of the universe. We weren't there and we did not have the necessary tools to measure time. But there are theories.
-
-
E=MC^2 ... E equals M C squared - where E is Energy, M is Mass and C is the Speed of Light squared (or, multiplied by itself).
-
This we DO know, as per Einstein's Law of Relativity: TIME is relative to WHO you are and WHERE you are as it is occurring.
-
WE were not here during the first 5 *days* of creation. Therefore segments of THAT time are not relative to us. We cannot measure it - we cannot accurately conceive of it - we cannot call it anything else except what God chose to call it, and HE chose to call each segment a "Day".
-
From the Law of Relativity we NOW know that each of these segments were different lengths of time measuring into the Billions of Years ...
And from the Bible we know that a "day" to God, is different than a "day" is to us. Einsteins Law of Relativity describes this perfectly E=MC^2. It has even been proven in the *real world* when atomic clocks on satellites orbiting the EARTH must be recalibrated on a regular basis; since they are moving faster than the clocks on the ground they lose time. It is a fact that clocks on satellites mark time at a slower rate than clocks on the ground.

The earth has been allotted seven thousand years, the millennial week - a thousand years is but a day to God.
Creation was seven literal days with the 7th day Sabbath.
Science confirms as big bangism has been discredited. The entire universe is the biblical age.
When God created Adam and Eve, the animals, trees and the rest we are told they were fully grown and adult, not infants. The same is true of starlight, it was created visible. Still, we can date this event by empirical observation of supernova remnants. Total SNRs do not support bazzillions of years.

Also, here on earth big bangism has no foundation claiming earth was formed a molten mass. Baserock granites are said to be igneous from when the earth allegedly formed. Yet, granite cannot be heated to a molten state, recooled and remain granite having lost its crystalline inter-mix. Proving granite is not an igneous.
Granite also has radio halos with a less than one min/half life proving granite formed instantly, not over millions of years. This science was published.

Deacons don't perform baptism in my Diocese, nor do we immerse. Do they regularly in Tulsa (if that's actually where you're from)?
Deacons often do baptisms, or at least, we did back when I was a deacon.(I wasn't one for very long, though, and the guy who supervises the deacons is not letting them do very much, from what I hear.)

Immersion probably is not done very ofn here. More likely done by pouring, which is all I have ever done.

I just remember from seminary the prof talikng about the dying and rising of baptism, which is right there in the prayers of the ritual, goes much better with the practice of total immersion, which is an ersatz drowning.(This probably spoke much better to a desert people, who were rerely trained in swimming. It has been remarked that there is something funny going on with St. Peter jumping in the water. Did he know how to swim? It seems a bit odd ...)

Anyway ... only one parish that I know of (St. Bernard of Clairveaux, aka "Our Lady of Oral Roberts University" is set up for full immersion, and I don't know if they still do that.

Were I a pastor, that is what I would be doing with adults at the Easter Vigil, but that is not left up to me.(I travel for Hispanic ministry, and hit mostly the storefront places).

And yes, I am from the Diocese of Tulsa. You can find me on their website, and you should be able to figure out our website email convention if you give it a try. It is titleabbreviation.firstname.la stname@dioceseoftulsa.org.

That address forwards to the box I usually use.

If you have a doubt that I am who I say I am (I cannot really tell for sure if that is what you are saying or not), I encourage you to check it.

Just the opposite is found. When granite is heated and recooled it changes losing the inter-mix reclassified another mineral.

If they want to address the issue they will need to refute Dr Gentry in a published article since that is where his findings are, lab results & published science.

This will never happen however, since the evolutionary tards have no interest in the truth rather claim there is no god so stop using their work to try and support the Bible. Their theories have no proof.

Constantine issued edicts enforcing Sunday observance.

Starting as early as 321 AD anti Sabbath laws enforcing sun worship began. Before then Constantine had not accepted Christianity and so persecuted all of them.

"Christians shall not Judaize and be idle on Saturday, but shall work on that day; but the Lord's day they shall especially honour, and as being Christians, shall, if possible, do no work on that day. If, however, they are found Judaizing, they shall be shut out anathema from Christ." Council of Laodicea, c. A.D. 364

"The word Judaizing was used particularly after the 3rd century of the Christian Era, to describe Jewish Christian groups like the Ebionites and Nazarenes....The term was also used in Spain at the time of the Spanish Inquisition, when it was used to describe any practice which even felt Jewish, such as lighting of candles on festivals or observing the Saturday Sabbath."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judaizers

"Know you not, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey; whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness?" (Romans 6:16)

Whatever it *sounds* like to you, 7 day cycle, whatever... it doesn't matter. What matters is what it actually IS.

With "big huge explosions" comes "light" ..now as the universe (plasma) expanded it was a huge fireball (for lack of a better word) and hot plasma pushing outwards in every direction - expanding. The hydrogen and helium glomming together to form heavier atoms LONG before the first structures formed.
-
The first structures to form were quasars ... they are currently the most luminous objects in the universe and therefore emit *light* and with the presence of light comes a separation between darkness and light.
-
But the earth had not yet formed and neither had the sun so there could be no "planetary" rotation to mark the 24 hour days into "day" and "night". The universe needed to cool before it could form planets. Again, Hydrogen and Helium banged together for an unknown period of time until they glommed together to form the heavier elements.

God created the universe AND the physics along with it.
