Greek is not necessarily Greek!!!!
The definition of the Greek word from which "wish" was translated us: by implication, to pray to God:--pray, will, wish.
If you apply "pray to God", that still is no guarantee...for Divine reasons, God does not always give us what we pray for...
Since "wish" is also a definition of the Greek word from which wish was translated, this definition is also applicable: A desire, longing, or strong inclination for a specific thing.
A desire, longing, or strong inclination, is no guarantee....

Are you sure that you name is not "WET BLANKET"..

I BELIEVE GOD CAN DO ANY THING..AFTER ALL HE IS GOD...

THE BIBLE IS CHUCK FULL OF EVENTS ...THAT those such as you ...would have kept from taking place/happening if you could have. RIGHT?

THE BIBLE SAYS

Rom_1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written,-->The just shall live by faith.

Gal_3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for,-->The just shall live by faith.

Heb_10:38 -->Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

---
Psa 91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

Psa 91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

Psa 91:16 -->With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

~~~

You would destroy my faith if you could, would you not?...

The Bibles says..

Act_13:8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them,

seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.

Mat_17:17 Then Jesus answered and said,--> O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.

Mar_9:19 He answereth him, and saith,--> O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.

Luk_9:41 And Jesus answering said,--> O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither.

One of the things which is so difficult to come to terms with is the reality that when we bear anger and resentment and bitterness in our hearts, we erect barriers to God's grace within ourselves. It's not that God stops giving us His grace. It's that we say, "No. I don't want it". What is His grace? It is His love, His mercy, His compassion
On an even deeper level, this spiritual principle--do not react--teaches us that we need to learn not to react to thoughts. One of the fundamental aspects of this is inner watchfulness. Our watchfulness does not need to be focused on our thoughts. Our watchfulness needs to be focused on God
After all, if somebody says something nasty to us, how are we reacting? We react first through our thinking, our thoughts. Perhaps we're habitually accustomed to just lashing out after taking offense with some kind of nasty response of our own. But keeping watch over our minds so that we maintain that living communion with God leaves no room for distracting thoughts.
Wow Herme God just keeps blessing me this morning through you wonderful post.

"There is one universal Church of the faithful, outside of which no one at all can be saved."

Pope Innocent III, ex cathedra,(Fourth Lateran Council, 1215).

OK, who changed that long-standing infallible teaching and why?

How can something be a "perfect teaching" one day and an error the next day?

In the state of Alabama, Catholicism has grown overall from 3% of the population to 6% of the population in just the 8 years between 2000-2008 (FROM HISPANIC IMMAGRATION). It is indeed rapidly growing in the Bible Belt. That said, Catholicism is staying at about 25% of the population overall nationwide. Many Americans are leaving the Catholic faith, but right now, they are being equally replaced by Hispanics immigrating into the country. According to the recent Pew Report, about 10% of all Americans are former Catholics, and about 2.5%(about 6-7 million people) are converts to Catholicism....jethro the catholic growth is spurred by people from Latin america,under-educated and working minimum wage jobs because that's all they can do,of course they are not all like that,there are many who i know myself are here getting an education,but still there is your growth "HOJO" in the church,once they learn the truth about the church,they'll leave if they educate themselves and want to protect their children.
"once they learn the truth about the Church, they will leave"

What truth? How Pagan Rome established Sunday as the Lords day to coincide with sun god worship??

God help anyone who pulls souls away from the Church using that 'truth'.

Matthew 16:19 shows the kind of authority Jesus gave Peter. Whatever decisions he makes within the Church, Heaven will recognize as valid.
Acts 20:7 Shows the Apostles 'gathering on Sunday to break bread. This is also called the Holy Mass.
As I showed yesterday, the Apostolic fathers clearly show Sunday the day being the Lords day.
Your assertion that Pagan Rome changed it to be the Sun god worship day is a lie. Sunday is from the authority of the Apostles.
Do you acknowledge your error?
Clay, do some simple research.

How does it put the RCC in a favorable light when you keep spouting wishful opinion that is factually incorrect.

FACT -- until the Emperor mandated Sunday as the Holy Day, for the first three centuries, different Christian sects held services on different days, either Saturday or Sunday.

Try thinking for once.....

If they all met on Sunday, why did the Emperor need to issue a decree to have them agree on a single day?

Use your brain and stop fearing the truth.

WHERE DO YOU ABIDE...RESIDE..take up residence?

DO YOU ABIDE IN DARKNESS?

Joh_12:46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

DO YOU ABIDE IN THE VINE?

Joh_15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

Joh_15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

MOTE THE BLESSING OF ABIDING IN CHRIST JESUS..

Joh_15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

THE PURPOSE OF JESUS COMING...TO EARTH.

Isa 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me

to preach good tidings unto the meek;

he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,

to proclaim liberty to the captives, and

the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

Isa 61:2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and

the day of vengeance of our God;

to comfort all that mourn;

Isa 61:3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion,

to give unto them beauty for ashes,

the oil of joy for mourning,

the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;

that they might be called trees of righteousness,

the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

---

Psa 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,

that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;

his leaf also shall not wither; and

whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.


Isa_57:15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

Jas 4:6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

Jas 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Jas 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

Jas 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

This is what is called a delusion by psychologists.

Generally harmless, this can develop into something more serious.

But somehow I doubt if this one believes enough to become a eunuch. He probably just spends a little money on holy trinkets. Harmless.

Cathy the Catholic says:

another superstitious young woman from a 3rd-world catholic dominated region has seen an apparation of 'mary'. this thing said to abandon the Bible, The Father, Son and Holy Spirit and worship the queen of heaven only and to pray the repetitious and mind/heart numbing rosary.

since we catholics take these goulish apparations more seriously than the Word of God, let's do what the demon....er.....angel says!

oh 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart,

I will send him unto you.

Joh 16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

Joh 16:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;

Joh 16:10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

Joh 16:11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

Joh 16:12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

Joh 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Joh 16:14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Where are the words "Roman Catholic Church" in the Bible? Where is the word you so love, "transubstantiation" in the Bible? Where is the word "pope" in the Bible? Where is the word, "nun", in the Bible? Where are the words,"Holy Communion" in the Bible? Where are the words, "infant baptism" in the Bible? This is a short list of what you lay claim to.

Your Roman Catholic church is nothing more than a Babylonian hoax and perversion. Your "faith" as you call it is nothing more than a mix of every pagan religion in the Roman Empire at the time of Constantine.

Also, where is the word, "lent", in the Bible? HA, HA!!!
