Jethro8--if your posts were (really) true catholic history,(as you claim), the Catholic Church wouldn't continue to be the largest Christian Church in the world, year after year (as it has been for over 2000 years)-NOR would it be growing "each and every year" at a rate exceeding 1.5% per year, so you see, there is "nothing valid" as to what you claim to be true...... It is all anti-catholic Protestant "hack" sources of "distorted and heretical "editorialize opinionated deception"----basically "fraudulent" (misrepresentation of fact). Or better yet termed "bible only" attempts to "re-write" and spin the TRUTH of over 2000 years of TRUE Apostolic Church History--------- by "desperate and frustrated Protestants" who cannot come up with ANYTHING biblical or historicall TRUE to back up their contradicting and inconsistent sola scriptura "man-made beliefs!!

If you do not believe that Christianity exist...why are you fighting against it..
If there is nothing there...why are you coming against nothing?
Do you usually chase parked cars...it guarantees that you will get

Gif - no where in the poster's post does it say that the poster thinks Christianity doesn't exist.

I have no interest in a game of Bible verse warfare with someone who is also not authorized to determine sacred scripture..
For the record. Breaking bread is the Holy Catholic Mass and all that surrounds it. Its the pinnacle of the day. We observe Sunday because Our Lord rose that day per the teachings of the Apostles and their Disciples.(Acts 20:7)
John's Disciple, Ignatius of Antioch:
"If unto this day we live after the manner of Judaism, we avow that we have NOT received Grace"
'if those who'd walked in ancient practices (Jews) received this newness of hope, they'd no longer observe Sabbaths, but would fashion their lives after the Lords Day, on which OUR LIVES also rose with Him'
'It is monstrous to speak of Jesus Christ and practice Judaism. For Christianity didn't believe in Judaism, but Judaism in Christianity.
Bishop Ignatius wrote this as a valid ordained Bishop from the Apostles.
Justin Martyr, "on the day called SUNDAY, all who live if the country and cities gather together... "
7th, you been shown your errors and shown how new and strange your theology is. If you choose to kick and scream in denial until your last breath its up to you.

Romans 11:11-24

King James Version (KJV)


11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.

12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?

13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:

14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.

15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?

16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.

19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.

20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:

21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.

24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?

Rom 14:6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.
Rom 14:7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
Rom 14:8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.
Rom 14:9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
Rom 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

Rom 3:26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

Rom 3:27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

You're asking me to accept your interpretations of sacred scripture; to accept your opinion that Our Lord Jesus Christ installed a certain canon of Books as His teaching authority on His will.

Therefore all I ask is that you provide a verse where Jesus tells us which Books to follow; who's interpretations are authoritative; Where do the Apostles command that the Bible is all that's established about Christianity?

If this was taught, then God as my witness, I'll leave the Catholic faith today and pick one of the 45,000 Sola Scripture organizations to join.

You people are starving for the Holy Eucharist. Just like in Luke 24: 30-31, you can not understand Scriptures until you partake in the Holy Eucharist.

And you would question the supposed first pope just to declare someone else to be wrong? You would declare the Word of God to be false rather than admit the failings of the CC?

I didn't write the book of Acts...and when Peter preached to the house of Cornelius, they all spoke with tongues. All of the Apostles AND MARY THE MOTHER OF JESUS spoke with tongues...as well as many others.

My 'preaching' is simply telling what the Good Book says.

OK Protestants, let's stop with the Catholic-bashing. While there may have been a legitimate reason to explode into separate churches during the time of Martin Luther, those days a long gone, and any reason or justification to remain separate now is very questionable. Were there many in the Church that were corrupt and unfaithful? Of course, always have been, and always will. Is that an excuse to leave it? No.

Undeniable facts. Jesus established one church. That's how God rolls, and always has. He did not make two tribes to be the priesthood, he made one, the Levites. There is only one priesthood, one moral authority, one God, one Church. All ancient records confirm this. The word "catholic" was used in the 1st Century, as was the Eucharist and everything else.

In Martin Luther's days, they didn't have the means to confirm much of this. So a lot of nonsense erupted that is proven untrue now. Modern evidence confirms more than ever that the Catholic Church, or at the very LEAST, the Orthodox Church, had it right.

What really irks me is that most Catholics are not Catholics, and many Protestants are more Catholic than Catholics. And yet, what irks me even more, is that far ... FAR more protestors are out there in front of Planned Parenthood, or at the Walk for Life, then evangelicals. Why is that?

And guess what? Even the Catholic philosopher Peter Kreeft acknowledges that Protestants DO have something going, they have the Holy Spirit, and that is why Latin Americans are leaving the Catholics and going Protestant in great numbers. He admits this. A Catholic.

So, does that mean we should remain divided? Or try and unite the Holy Spirit and the One True Church again? More than ever, in this day in age, we must unite. That means putting aside your pride and your hubris. That means Catholics better stop saying they are proud to be Catholic, and start calling yourself Christians, as that is what you really are. And that means Protestant or Evangelicals need to stop with the misinformation and lies you keep spouting about your Brothers and Sisters in Christ.

Just like in Luke 24: 30-31, you can not understand Scriptures until you partake in the Holy Eucharist.

Then tell me why that the Eucharist Only crew REJECTS THE SCRIPTURES?
KayMarie
The same reasons why you reject Jesus.....

- prefer to believe and trust the men who gave you your belief
- prefer to only follow what men have presented as the correct belief

Not too hard at all to answer, if honesty is used.

Unfortunately, you don't recognize the Self aspect of these choices.
