They ignore...completely... For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
They have added the Priest, Mary and all the "Saints"....so they got lots of mediators!!!!!
Of course they ignore the parts of the Bible with which they disagree.

Who doesn't?

But if you truly love Jesus Christ, you will listen to him - rather than listening to man. One should listen to and pay heed to the words Jesus said that WERE recorded. If you can't obey a direct command from Jesus ... then why even worry about stuff that no longer exists - because it was NOT recorded and preserved by Holy Spirit?

I would think a person who prizes common sense would would realize God has left us adequate information, and if we listen to it - and not ADD to it - it is sufficient.

You should know this: ALL that WAS preserved, by God's Holy Spirit, is adequate for the Christian believer. True Christians realize this, and listen to Christ.

Jesus said it - he meant it. and he said it for a reason. You ignore his direct command when you call a priest 'Father'.

Don't you wonder why very little of you protestants (or protestants of the original protestants) have an issue with this?

Normal people see why Jesus said it and who He said it towards. They were not His Apostles or Bishops and Priests.

You're isolating this sentence for your own personal vendetta against the Holy Catholic Church.

This is why we rely heavily on the sacred tradition of the Church and the writings of the Apostolic fathers. Because common sense tells us the Apostles explained this stuff already. If you wanna really know what was taught, go to the Church fathers writings.
If you want some dudes opinion - 2,000 yrs later on what was taught, go to Confrint and 50,000 other private Popes. I'll take Ignatius of Antioch or Clement of Rome before Pat Robertson any day.

"Call no man you father." JESUS said it, I believe it.

yeah. right. Church *tradition* is what got the church into the mess it's in now. For hundreds of years the *tradition* of the church was to PROTECT PEDOPHILE PRIESTS - that is until the mess got so big and vast and WORLD WIDE that secular authorities had to step in - because it was OBVIOUS that your leaders would NOT DO A THING TO STOP IT. But, instead (as per church 'tradition') they moved the priests to new 'hunting grounds'.

So again, how does Mary tell us we are saved?
At Fatima, Mary says -- "You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pope Pius XI."
Devotion or worship? What does it matter, because she tells us if it's not enough, millions will die in WW2.
It's absurd. Devotion or else? Worship or else?n What's the difference?
This is zero difference. MARY CLEARLY SAYS DEVOTION TO HER SAVES SOULS.
Don't believe me. Believe the Catholic Church and every Pope since 1917.
Oops, I forgot the spin --- you are not "required" to believe it or to trust every Pope since 1917.
You may have overlooked...
"While coming closer to us, the Angel said:‘Do not fear! I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me.’ And kneeling on the earth, he bent his forehead to the ground. Prompted by a supernatural movement, we imitated him and repeated the words which we heard him pronounce:‘My God, I believe in Thee, I adore Thee, I hope in Thee and I love Thee. I ask pardon for all those who do not believe in Thee, do not adore Thee, do not hope in Thee and do not love Thee.’
http://www.fatima.org/essentials/facts/1916ap...

‘When you pray the Rosary, say after each mystery: O my Jesus, forgive us, save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who are most in need.’

1.. Show me the post where I called you a liar.

Hint... those posts don't exist.
Clay... your spiritual superiority has made you into a fool.
Now show me the post #'s, because inspite of what you think, I can't have them removed.
You need help, and maybe the delusion that your church sells is perfect for you. But here we can back up our claims with facts. This is not the place for deluded fools to validate their delusions.
Sorry to sound so harsh. Show me the posts where I wrote what you claim and I will gladly apologize. Otherwise, this is the real world, not your RCC La La Land.
Post 426849 Free: "Why Clay, Why? Why are you not comfortable with the reality of your faith, so you are forced to lie"

same post 42689 Free: "However, only one of these may have been from African decent...one Pope,(maybe) does not equal 80%. Get a grip clay"

(keep in mind i never said 80% of our Popes were from Africa)

post 426970 Free: "Now you should understand why i call you out on your own deceptions - like 80% of our Popes were dark skinned of African decent" "Im here for you, stop doing what you say others are doing (lying)"

KEEP in MIND I NEVER SAID 80% of OUR POPES WERE OF AFRICAN DECENT! Thats sill to even think that.

post 426842 I said this: "I believe about 80% of our Popes had dark skin. We already had an African Pope but I forgot his name, it was like a thousand yrs ago"

Thats all I said there bud. And I still stand by it. Allot of our Popes had dark skin. They were full blooded Italian.

Ya know, i feel like im stooping to a level unbecoming of me. Its way to childish and I don't feel comfortable as an adult playing these stupid games.

Nonsense!!!! Quoting Scripture at random that has nothing to do with the Bible teaching, as you say, to pray to Mary and the dead "Saints" is ludicrous to say the least...
Christ, from Scripture, taught us to pray to God the Father, in His name...
Show me Scripture that says Christ said "When you pray, pray to Mary, my Mother"....or Pray to the "Saints"...You can't because it is not in there....
Bottom line....you are following teachings not based on Scripture...but...to a Catholic...it don't matter...da pope said it...and that's that!!!!

We had a dual Catholic/Lutheran fish fry last Fri for lent. It was great fellowship between Protestants and Catholics.
I think Luther and Calvin would puke their guts out if they could've foresaw the disaster they created, by opening the door to sola scriptura.

That's not true guest. The Pope can never go against scripture. In a sense, he can't even 'privately' interpret scripture. Nothing he says can go against Church teachings. If he does, we are obligated to publicly rebuke him like Paul did to Peter. Saint Thomas of Aquinas and numerous others in the 2,000 yr history have publicly rebuked the sitting Pope for going against Church teachings.

There is no scripture that shows Timothy calling Paul 'Father'. Timothy didn't write any of the New Testament.
It would be completely legal and normal if he did, since Paul referred to him as his son. We can base this on tradition and early Christian writings that it was appropriate to call Priests and Bishops, such as Paul,'father'.

Boy, you guys sure have allot of scripture verses to hide behind.

Don't you think at some point, you're going to need to prove that sola scripture exists? That Jesus commanded it? That the Apostles taught it?

I don't think you'll be able to smuggle your highlighted Bible into judgement day to show God your verses that you went 'all inn' with.

I'll tell you what, you give me verse chapter that says the Bible is all that's revealed about Jesus Christ and His Ministry. Give me a verse that says we need a Bible to be the sole pillar of teaching on Christianity; the only truth revealed by the Apostles?
Otherwise, there really is no need to go further with you fundies.

He teaches Mary's is a mediator...that is against Scripture...
He teaches Mary is a virgin evermore...that is against Scripture..

I cannot believe that it would be heaven for them ...If they were
