RESPONSE:
Why do you ignor the fact that the first christians DID have something written down. It was called the old testament. And had Jesus Himself gone against the teachings of the scriptures His followers would have rejected His message and His claims. The scriptures were and are GOD'S WORD, and God has the final authority and say on all matters of faith.
Perhaps you have heard this before Clay......"Jesus loves me, this I know....For the BIBLE tells me so."
I would also disagree with your belief that everyone looked to Clement and Ignatious as haveing the SAME credibility as the Apostles. The Apostles were given sign gifts to PROVE that they were empowered by God to do His work. That can not be said for those who followed.
And AGAIN you are casting doubt on the phrase,'Word of God'. You have given us YOUR definition and it is quite without merit or basis.
Your view of the word of God (the scriptures) is not in agreement with the scriptures themselves.
So perhaps it would clear things up a bit if you would tell us exactly what your view of the scriptures really is.
Do you believe that the bible IS the word of God?
Do you believe the bible CONTAINS the word of God?
Do you believe the bible is LITERALLY true?

Was the pope chosen by man or by God? Is it a bloodline that must be followed just as it is for one to become President? Are saints chosen by man and then acknowledged and accepted by God to become like God? Will your sins be forgiven if U confess them to another man? Is to eat the body of Christ and to drink his blood symbolic of cannabalism? Does praying to Mary, Mother of God, grant mercy when it comes to sin? Is Jesus really God? Jesus said the Almighty Father that dwells in Heaven was God and that His will shall be done. Why do Catholics call Mary "God's mom" if she was just the human vessel that ushered in Christ into the world who clearly stated throughtout his ministry that God was his father and not himself? I have plenty of questions for Catholics because the confusion and obvious contradictions of Catholicism are misleading and can set in motion an entire movement of rebels once it is found out that the Church was just using their ignorance of TRUE knowledge about who God is to keep them all under hypnosis in order to maintain their status over the masses and keep the Holy Roman Empire alive and well.

2000 years of TRUTH AUTHENTICATED PROVEN Church History, disputes EVERYTHING you have posted. Go read the Catholic Catechism, the Encyclicals and the Apologists Historian authors and writers, who know 50 times more than you will EVER KNOW about the TRUTH of TRUE Apostolic Church History. It is a "waste of time" discussing and debating this subject with bible only "buffoons" like yourself who have a pre-determined anti-catholic "editorial" agenda. You people just "throw ANYTHING out on this forum" hoping that (something)----(ANYTHING) might stick!!! Go argue with your other 42,000+ contradicting/inconsistent Sola Scriptura "desperatos" who "have never" nor "will ever" agree on ANYTHING except attacking our Catholic Faith (grounded in Jesus Christ) and attacking the TRUTH of TRUE Biblical Interpretation and TRUE Church History that has existed for over 2000 years and will CONTINUE to remain the ONLY TRUTH that Jesus Christ initiated and passed on to His Apostles in and through His One True Catholic Church!!!

a group of men choose the pope,has nothing to do with god or jesus,if it did there would be no reason for a vote on a new pope god would tell them right away who it is,but they do it this way because vatican city is a tourist trap and the church owns all the stores in the area so thjey drag it out as long as possible to make money.nothing divine about the whole thing at all.

Oh, you mean like some new "gig, idea or editorialized opinion" that "springs up, surfaces, and changes every (single day), depending on which way the (ever changing) "fundie" biblical or historical (relative truth) "wind happens to blow"!! You bible only believers have been doing this (inventing, making up and rewriting of Church History) since Martin Luther came on the scene over 450 years ago. Want proof!!! Just look at ALL of new bible only denominations that have and are "still" being concocted each and every day (42,000 contradicting hodge-podge Protestant "man-made" (cults) in which ALL claim to have the truth!!------YES--(as you say) "something interesting, something new" -----so that you can continue to be religiously and spiritually ENTERTAINED. The fact is that the Historical and Biblical PROVEN TRUTH of Jesus Christ message of faith, salvation and hope, which has, is and will CONTINUE to be in Jesus Christ and His One (and only one) TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church, was initiated over 2000 years NOT to "entertain you", but to lead you to the TRUTH, which you continue to "reject"!!

You, jethro8, can continue to rely upon your anti-catholic (relative truth) sources of heresy, hypocricy and distortion of the TRUTH of TRUE CHURCH HISTORY....... I/we as Catholics will continue to follow, adhere to and remain with the Historical and biblical TRUTH of over 2000 years of "existing" (indisputable and fundamental TRUTH)of Jesus Christ and His One True Apostolic Catholic Church which is an original, actual and obvious reality of FACT!!

Really? Which Books? Did they endorse 39, 46 or 5? Did the first Christians under the Apostles have Tobit, Kings or Maccabees?
I would like to know your opinion.

Yes i believe the Bible (all 73 Books) are the word of God. I also believe that title 'word of God' has been taken unto a level that was unimaginable to the authors. You people ran off in a rabid frenzy causing terrible ignorance to your brain. You used this title 'word of God' to undo what the Apostles taught about the bread and wine. And you feel justified because - after all - you were able to form your opinion based on.... the word of God.

I'm not disagreeing on the 4 Gospels. But you said 'per Jesus Christ' the 4 Gospels are Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. I don't think Christ named the Gospels (nor any Book in the NT)

(FURTHERMORE--you refuse the SPOKEN, STATED AND EXPRESSED words of Jesus (again) in John 6:47-59 when Our Lords says "for unless you eat my Body, which is (real food) and drink my blood which is (real drink)--YOU CANNOT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE!!
As a "confirmed bible only infidel, Confrinting, you "do not speak for God" and NEVER WILL until you come to the TRUTH of TRUE SALVATION in Jesus Christ and "turn away from the sin" of condemnation and judgement of other Christians (especially CAtholics, and the One (and only one) TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church formed by Jesus Christ _HIMSELF!!
~~~

You are not being truthful

....I know you cant it is impossible....

I KNOW YOU HAVEN'T VERIFIED WHAT YOU ROMAN CATHOLICS TEACH FROM THE BIBLE

BECAUSE

WHAT YOU TEACH

AINT IN THERE.

SO YOU COULD NOT HAVE GIVEN ANY REFERENCES...FROM THE BIBLE

QUESTION..

WHY DO YOU LIE ON GOD?

All liars will have their part in the lake of fire.

____

ALL YOU CAN POST ABOUT IS THE COMMUNION OF SAINTS..".YOUR EUCHARIST "

THERE ARE 27 BOOKS OF TEACHINGS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT..

WHILE COMMUNION IS IMPORTANT...IT IS NOT THE ONLY SUBJECT THERE.

And

Since you Roman Catholics receive Communion to keep yourselves saved,

not discerning the Body of Christ..(if you are a willful sinner

You drink the cup of the Lord, unworthily.)

in your ignorance...you become ... guilty...of the body and blood

of the Lord,

You drink damnation to your selves.

~~~

The Bible says...(King James Translation) reads

Co 11:27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

1Co 11:28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
1Co 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
1Co 11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
1Co 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
1Co 11:32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

The Geneva Bible 1599 reads..

1Co 11:27 Wherefore, whosoeuer shall eate this bread, and drinke the cup of the Lord vnworthily, shall be guiltie of the body and blood of the Lord.

1Co 11:28 Let euery man therefore examine himselfe, and so let him eate of this bread, and drinke of this cup.

1Co 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh vnworthily, eateth and drinketh his owne damnation, because he discerneth not the Lords body.

1Co 11:30 For this cause many are weake, & sicke among you, and many sleepe.

1Co 11:31 For if we would iudge our selues, we should not be iudged.

The (Douay translation ) reads

Co 11:27 Therefore, whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord.

1Co 11:28 But let a man prove himself: and so let him eat of that bread and drink of the chalice.

1Co 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily eateth and drinketh judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Lord.

1Co 11:30 Therefore are there many infirm and weak among you: and many sleep.

1Co 11:31 But if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

Walking into the church, sitting down, and attending the service is not "studying". Getting up afterwards, going to the local public library and then look up that which was discuss for veracity, is studying.

- where are his teachings
- why he taught what he did
