RE: the Real Presence, his/her comments were also true. Belief varies as to details and use of "transubstantiation" to describe it, but a belief in the Real Presence is indeed a feature of Anglican Community theology
Thanks.

Just kidding, but you shure have the same mentality as he.

Why don't you go back and re-read what I wrote and answer with something that is related, because your above post has nothing to do with what I initially posted.

Except you did divert from answering with a citation - very well....most "little half-Christian wannabes"....do, because they haven't a viable answer to retort with.

You can always tell an "anti-catholic" but you can't tell him much!!! HOW TRUE, HOW TRUE! Dialogue, discussion and debate are a "total waste of time" with you or any heretical non-catholic who has "grounded his "so-called Christian faith" in the rejection of over 2000 years of the historical and biblical AUTHENTICATED TRUTH of Jesus 'Christ and His One True Catholic Church! Just "make it up" as you go along New Age! It is called "relative truth" in its "finest hour"! We'll just wait for "hour number two" in order to get the next "dose of bible contradiction, confusion and chaos!!!! You, my friend can have it!! IT IS ALL YOURS!!!
Funny thing is....you continue to say I reject the Bible, but haven't given any proof to such nonsense.

All I've stated is the Bible is incomplete, and while you think it is complete, it isn't.

It is only complete, because men have stated such.

Why do you oppose "God's" inspiration of other people?

Why all this hate? Doesnt YOUR denom have any "dark secrets"? Is your church composed solely of saints.

In reality your church, the catholic church, my church, they all contain a whole mixture of people. Also the clergy too, some good some bad.

But instead of praying for unity, and acting with charity you want to tear down the CC, the church Jesus founded. Why is that!!!! rant over

NOW! back to the debate.
Sorry to hear your bad times Jethro - I hope they get better for you.

"Restraining order"
- doesn't sound like a relationship that can be amended. Bummer, you talked very highly of her. It is kind of sad that some people have troubles dealing with personal issues, that are not theirs or have the ability to give support to those in need of the extra help.

You see to be a strong gent. I have faith in that you can make the right decisions going forward and if anything, learn from all of this to make yourlife even better than before.

BTW - I've taken you off of the "prayer list" and handed that request directly to Jesus in order to help you....*winks*.....

Why go throught he middle fundamentalists and Catholics. You can deal directly with Jesus.

:o)

Cheers and best regards and peace to you and your family,

Both Church and Bible are necessary.
The Church puts the Bible into motion. The Mass; the Sacraments; the Eucharist are all bringing to life the sacred writings of the Apostles and the teachings of the OT prophets.
The NT didn't launch the Catholic Church.
It launched your particular church and 40,000 others, however.
Well, Clay, you are partially correct. The new testament did not start the Roman Catholic Church. Nor did it start Jesus' church. Jesus himelf started His church (a called out group of believers) by calling them to follow Him. When they did, they became a part of His church. The same call is issued to this day, and His church is built the same way. Each time someone chooses to "follow Him' They become a part of His church. Jesus did not call us to come follow the Church.

EXACTLY!! God inspired the Apostles and inspired (countless numbers) of the (other) followers of Jesus Christ and His One True Church that He initiated in Matt 16:13-21. God's "divine inspiration" was His "supernatural influence" which conveyed the "truth" of His message of Salvation and the Catholic Church. i.e. People such as Polycarp, Ignatius, Juatin Martyr, Irenaeus, Agustine, Jerome, Cyprian, Lactantius, Clememt of Alexandria, Origen, Tertullian, and on and on throughout over 2000 years of the Catholic Church!! You've got it right, New Age, when you speak of Gods "inspiring" of other people.

So Jesus started a 'group of believers' with no particular doctrine; who read some of the writings of His Apostles and convince themselves that the Holy Spirit just guided their interpretations, but none of them really agree with each other??

Boy 4gvn, that doesn't make much sense.

Imagine for a second if the Catholic Church and her teachings are valid, and it is indeed the very Church that Christ started and guided to truth for the past 2,000 yrs. Imagine the Eucharist is exactly what the CC says it is and all the Apostolic fathers agreed it was...
Here you are, devoting so much energy to (potentially) be going against the very will of Jesus Christ. Wow.
My excuse on judgement day (if I'm wrong) is that I merely followed the Church that was there from the beginning - 266 Popes ago. I followed the group who created the New Testament and I trusted that Jesus Christ was not lying when He promised to be with them til the end of the world and the gates of hell wouldn't prevail against it.

But you? If you're wrong what are you going on say?
'I discovered some things in the New Testament that the previous Christians got wrong.'?

You people need the Eucharist. You need that spiritual nourishment before its too late.

Romans 10:9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.

***Nope...Clay says not enough, we need the eucharist

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world,[i] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

***Nope...Clay says not enough, we need the eucharist

1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, 5 who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, 9 obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

**Nope...Clay says not enough, we need the eucharist (look Clay your first pope doesn't mention baptism or eucharist)

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes

*****Nope...Clay says not enough, we need the eucharist

You can cite every verse in the New Testament if you want.

You're looking at the menu without ever ordering the meal.

However Chuck, I do not doubt that you experience Christ by only reading and praying.

Remember, we Catholics don't deny Jesus presence in your community. You guys deny Jesus in us.
You guys are still a doctrinal mess. Heck, you can't even agree if you got a doctrine...

You need the Eucharist. Christ said He abides in you and you in Him if you eat His flesh. Paul and all the Apostolic fathers instructed us how this is possible.
