!

There is nothing in the Bible about praying to saints -- thus it is only your opinion. God's word does not support your opinions.

John 16:23 "...whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it to you."

Nothing about asking saints or the 'virgin mary'. The pope and Roman Church have OPINIONS & traditions of MAN. The inspired Bible does not have opinion.

Mt 15:9 "But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."

Such is the history of the harlot in Rome.

let's break this down so you'll know from where non-roman cultist's are coming from:
the RCC's "mary" is NOT the Mary from the bible; it's the ancient 'godess' ashtroth, which is actually associated to a demonic principality and that's why pagans are compelled to worship it.
the 'eucharist' is NOT the Body of Christ, but it's a roman/pagan ploy designed to keep the masses in bondage to roman dependency.
if you care to specify the "other beliefs" the RCC has that are in opposition to what the Bible teaches, i'll be happy to explain why those of us who are jealous for the Truth are "disrespectful" of those doctrines of demons as well.
don't thank me, just repent:-)
So it doesn't matter to you that the Eucharist was taught; explained and defined hundreds of yrs before Rome legalized Christianity? When the Apostles and their Disciples wrote about what Jesus Christ commanded in the Eucharist, Pagan Rome were killing Christians. In your brain, you think pagan Rome influenced the Eucharist??

Not just the eucharist predates the RC but also nuns or vestal virgins were from Rome not the Bible. Also IHS came from the Greeks all the way back to Babylon, not the Bible.

if the eucharist isn't strictly a roman/pagan institution, why is it that only a catholic priest can do the hocus pocus necessary for the 'transubstantiation'(also completely pagan/roman terminology)?

Jesus explains what He was talking about in latter verses when His disciples asked Him about eating His flesh and drinking His blood; "the flesh profits nothing; My WORDS are SPIRIT and they are life" Jesus

you're one confused hombre! if you don't take direction from men and you don't confess Jesus as God,
Jesus isn't "God" - so please stop promoting this untruth.

You are correct. Since Jesus never wrote anythign down, why do we even listen to the second hand sources?

BTW - I utilize teh teachings of Jesus, as scribed by other men. This is true, and more than I can say about the whole of Christianity, who prefer to disregard most of what Jesus taught, and ont he flipside use everyone and their brothers as sources.

You are confused.

Why do you prescribe to what men devised?

Well, first and foremost - if you had used the correct Wiki-link, you may have gottenthte correct information.

But you chose to skate on by with some nonsense link to the "Byzantine" bible.

You will first need to learn to research correctly, before you can pat yourself on the back.

Stephen COMMENDED his spirit to Jesus...while JESUS WAS GIVING HIM A STANDING OVATION...
I HARDLY BELIEVE THAT YOU COULD CALL THEM "NOTHING"
The "spirit" you speak of is His breath: no more, no less.
That spirit is the word PNEUMA. The same spirit God breathed into Adam's nostrils when he became a living soul.

Judgement has not been completed and Judgement Day has not come yet.
Those who die have perhaps not been judged yet so how can they be consigned to Heaven or Hell until judgement has been passed on Judgement Day?

<quoted text>while you are paraphrasing this part of a song that david wrote, it still remains ONLY a song. yet you choose to beleive that when Jesus spoke of that rich man and a man NAMED Lazarus , is ONLY a Parable. and I like Oxbow dont beleive it is "just a parable". I also dont beleive like you do ,that Jesus is a liar, and doesnt mean what He says.
and I must admit that I am perplexed when Marge calls you a brother, when your belief and that of the other sda's on this forum believe that we who worship the Lord on Sundays Services have received the "mark of the beast", when that "mark" hasnt been given nor forced on anyone at this time of the Christian era.
I have never given credence to marge being very intelligent since she first popped onto this forum, but to the others on here you arent fooling anyone, and that includes Clay.
Nasty comment there Preston.
The Mark of the Beast will not happen until we are forced by LAW to keep Sunday. Get that straight. You believe a lie.

I am not even TRYING to fool anyone. But I believe you must have enopugh of an IQ to read the passages I quoted and come to the conclusion that death IS a sleep.

OK Oxbow, What you say is that Jesus appeared in Heaven when He died.

How was it he told Mary in the garden not to touch Him (three days later) BECAUSE HE HAD NOT YET ASCENDED UNTO THE FATHER?

He did not ascend until ascension day: some 40 days later.

Do the math.

Correct---there is nothing in the Bible about praying to saints! Catholics DO NOT pray to saints, so it matters not! I/we as Catholics use "intercessory" prayer, asking others to pray for us, just like you "fundies" do! The difference is that we believe that the "Communion of Saints" encompasses those that are alive and here on earth, as well as the Saints that have gone before us marked with the sign of faith in Jesus Christ. These are not "man-made" opinions" like you Protestants have "invented, concocted and created" in the last 400 years since the Reformation..... Intercessory prayer, regarding the Saints and the Virgin Mary is "Catholic Doctrinal TRUTH" that was passed on by the Apostles over 2000 years ago----the Sacred Traditions that were taught by Jesus, to HIS Apostles, and proclaimed in the Early Church........TRUTH (both oral and written) IS APOSTOLIC, authenticated and verified by Jesus Christ HIMSELF and was made "manifested" ONLY in and through His One (and ONLY one) True Catholic Church. Again---Jesus NEVER wrote anything down, Jesus NEVER handed out bibles, nor did Jesus EVER say that the (written word) the bible(which never existed until 397AD) is the ONLY Source of TRUTH in which God the FAther, chose to transmit His infallible and inspired word. THE CHURCH CAME FIRST, then THE BIBLE 400 years after the death of Christ. APOSTOLIC ORAL TRADITION (the unwritten word) was the ONLY WORD taught by the Apostles in Jesus' first Church at Antioch, followed by the Churches in Pauls letters to Ephesus, Corinth, Thessalonica, Galatia, and on and on.....You need to get a TRUE HISTORY LESSON, instead of reading your "21st century (modernistic fictitious bible only history book of legends, myths and sola scriptura "editorial rif-raf, that you "fundies" just (make-up) as you go along!!! The TRUTH, has, is and will (always) be in Jesus Christ and His One True Apostolic Catholic Church (the bride of Christ)

Join the Tiger Lily in showing what you perceive to be an error in the infallible Word of God...
Can't you read Oxbow?
I have explained countless times that the word of God says Jesus did not ascend to Heaven for 40 days or so after He was crucified.

The Bible is infallible but you have to properly UNDERSTAND simple logic for it to be of any use to you.

The dead await a resurrection. They SLEEP in the dust of the Earth.

The thief still waits until the Second Coming.

There are 24 Elders in Heaven along with Moses and Elijah.

There is ample evidence that they are special resurrections.

<quoted text>if Jesus rose from his tomb in 3 days, rising on the Sabbath (Saturday), he would of been placed in the tomb on a Thursday or possibly a Wednesday. Mark 15:42-43 says that Jesus was crucified on the day before the Sabbath. If the Sabbath mentioned was the weekly Sabbath, then that lends toward a Friday crucifixion.
Lots of debate on this subject, jethro. There were High Sabbaths or Ceremonial Sabbaths and that leads to a variety of days of the crucifixion.

It still places Jesus on Earth days after His death and not in Heaven with the thief.

There is evidence in scripture that Moses' grave was never found.
Perhaps God visited him as He did many times.
Elijah was seen going up to Heaven in a fiery chariot.
The many "Mary" visitations are NOT of the real Mary who is waiting for the voice of the Archangel to awaken her.
