Simon Magus and the gnostic books were rejected by those early Christians.
The Catholic apocryphal books are not much different really, added only later in 1545.
Why do you believe those men were accurate?

Yawn. You can't stop being an idiot. Catholic is an adjective, describing everyone of those Churches in communion with the Apostles.
you're the prime example why the laity have no business forming their own Christianity by reading scripture verses. Its not possible to get anymore lost than you Ox.
go pull someone elses ponytail.
From the Catholic Encyclopedia:

The combination "the Catholic Church" (he katholike ekklesia) is found for the first time in the letter of St. Ignatius to the Smyrnaeans, written about the year 110.

Iggy wrote this several ears after Christ declared that He would build His church!!!!!!

Plus...the seven (7) churches Christ referred to in Rev were not referred to as "Catholic" "catholic" or otherwise...

1. The ostuary as the website said was just of a common name at the time. Others were also found earlier.

2. We are told Jesus appeared in a physical new body and did eat. Wasnt it Thomas who put his hands in Jesus' wounds?

Heavenly bodies as Jesus had after his resurrection, not some disembodied spirit or soul.

Luke 24:34-43 Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon. And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread. And as they thus spoke, Jesus himself stood in the middle of them, and said to them, Peace be to you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. And he said to them, Why are you troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit has not flesh and bones, as you see me have. And when he had thus spoken, he showed them his hands and his feet. And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said to them, Have you here any meat? And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. And he took it, and did eat before them.

The first Christians who were there witnesses this as they did the miracles of Jesus confirming the virgin birth as Mary said.

This is one way we know the inspired books. another is that they are all in harmony.

Do more research. Some doctors are warning that vaccinations cause the allergies in the first place.

I had many allergies when a child due to this vaccination schedule but thankfully grew out of it, or maybe was healed by God :) no allergies today!

Apostolic Succession Debunked

In the episcopate of Nicholas I (Nicholas the Great), bishop of Rome AD 858-867, documents known today as the pseudo-Isidorean Decretals appeared on the stage of history. Contained in this fortuitous discovery were letters allegedly written by “popes” prior to Nicaea (AD 325) and from Clement 1 to Miltiades. All are blatant forgeries!(They had to be, for there were no popes and no papacy in that time frame.) The Donation of Constantine was shown to be a deliberate forgery in AD 1440 by Lorenzo Valla.

Protestants did that, too. Protestants also slaughtered the American Indians, and hung people falsely accused of witchcraft in Salem.

No they did not. Rome has the neurotic empire. Now stop spreading lies.

Says you. Actually the Puritan Protestants allowed the Natives to live in the colonies protected from Spain out west. It was only after this the treaties were all broken, by agents of Rome in Washington DC, Mary Land. The Jesuits continue to persecute the Natives still today.

I'm not interested in any cult propaganda essays you post.
Gimme something from a normal source.
I wasted time last week reading one of your stupid pamphlets. It was filled with so much slander it wasn't even funny.
If my kid got caught us in one of your silly cults, I would bust the door down with a sledge hammer to rescue him.

And I/we Catholics will "give you" the SAME answer! Where in the bible does it say that "every word, every phrase, every sentence, MUST BE IN THE BIBLE in order for it to be true!!...Furthermore--- Church History, records it, other disciples, followers and Christians "proclaimed the word Catholic (or Universal, or One Church)----(IN THE EARLY CHURCH) beginning in 070 AD and (even in the Churches that Paul wrote to :Ephesus, Thessalonica, Corinth, Phillipi, ect. by Apologistic historian authors and writers that confirm it: both as Catholic and Protestant.--Send your "editorial opinions" to the New York times, L.A. Times, or the Mpls Star/Tribune, ect. Jethro8, and then you can "argue the word "Catholic" with the other bible only Protestants, whose bible only opinions have as much credibility as the "hog-wash" that it is printed in the National Inquirer.----There has, is and will (continue) to be "ONLY" (one truth) and that is in Jesus Christ and His One (and only one TRUE-Universal "Catholic Church"!!!

Just more or the "same old" "bible only" Protestant "Propaganda" that can be "dug up" in some "obscure and remote" anti-catholic sources!......There (has, is and will ALWAYS BE) ONLY ONE TRUE CHURCH, and ONLY ONE TRUTH---and it is in Jesus Christ,(in and through) HIS biblically and historically PROVEN Apostolic Catholic Church---confirmed, proven and verified for over 2000 years!! NOTHING more to discuss, NOTHING more to debate, NOTHING more to argue over, NOTHING more to contemplate, NOTHING more to deliberate over!-----"Anything other Christianity is either "relative truth or half-truth, half-heresy Christianity of which bible only Protestants have "mastered the art" of editorializing and self-opinionating their own 42,000 "contraditing" interpretation of the bible.
