Can't ya just hear those Christian feet stomping in temper tantrums?
"Jesus IS GOING TO SAVE ME and take me to heaven, and THAT IS THAT!!!"
It's far easier to find you throwing your own tantrums on Topix. Years spent, hundreds if not thousands of posts reflecting your pathological obsession with Catholicism (and the sound of your own voice).

And all this time I was taught the priest drank the blood of Christ!!!! I have never heard of a priest suffering from bloodcoholic...so you must be right!!!
Now I can see why so many priests are alcoholics...there is a Catholic alcoholic retreat a mile from my house!!!!
Priests don't become alcoholics from drinking the Eucharistic wine.

That's silly. I don't know how you guys convince yourselves the Holy Spirit is guiding you to scriptural truth, when none of you agree on very key Christian teachings.
The Catholic Church does not error on scriptural teachings.
Someone has to be protected from error, right? If it ain't the CC, then which one of you 45,000 are the lucky ones?
Christ promised His Church would be protected from error. So I'm sticking with the Church who was there from day one. Yours was started a couple hundred yrs ago and they do not teach the same as the Apostles. Be careful of that fact Ella.
Your comment lets me know that either you have not read the Word of God or you lack understanding of the Holy Spirit and why he was sent to us.

History shows that the pagan Roman empire persecuted Christians who called themselves Catholic. Can you cite any historical references of Christians who referred to themselves as Southern baptists or even protestant?
Horse apples:

CHRISTIANS

A name given at Antioch to those who believed Jesus to be the Messiah, A. D. 42, Ac 11:26 It seems to have been given to them by the men of Antioch as a term of convenience rather than of ridicule, to designate the new sect more perfectly than any other word could do. They generally called each other "brethren," "the faithful," "saints," "believers;" and were named by the Gentiles, Nazarenes and Galileans. He only is a real Christian who heartily accepts Christ as his teacher, guide, and master, the source of his highest life, strength, and joy, his only Redeemer from sin and hell, his Lord and his God. They who rightly bear Christ's name and partake of his nature, and they only, shall finally share in his glory.

Ain't no Catholics here!!!!

Does anyone notice that although Jesus is depicted in theology as a Jew, in all paintings, he doesn't wear a kippa (flat head covering) as do the Jews, but rather has garb depicted of a Catholic saint?

Those Catholics were determined to wash the Jew out of Jesus.

Impressive indeed to have survived and thrived for 2000 years despite being attacked on all sides and even from within. How long did the Roman empire last?
Some other religions have lasted thousands more years than Christianity and are still going strong. Your religion is not special ... except to you and those of like mind.

Those in polytheistic religions simply created new gods. The Catholics had no choice, if they wanted one god and they only believed in the existence of one god, they had to try to make a Jewish god into one that served only Catholics.

And that's going to extremes.

Theologians preach that the creator is beyond human understanding.
If that is true, then I suggest they admit that they don't know even if a creator exists.
That admittance would be based on truth.

Brilliant, June. Just brilliant.

One's religion is special to an adherent of that religion and likewise to other adherents.

Profound.

Once a theologian claims he knows that the universe was created ... not a word of his religious theories can be trusted after THAT first lie.
There is no humility in the claim of theologians bragging that they know what is totally beyond human ability TO know.
They are all self-glorified trouble-making fortune-tellers, and nothing more.

Christ did no such thing!!!!!
The history of the Romans persecuting, Christians, and not Catholics is well documented and you know it: Excerpt:
In its first three centuries, the Christian church endured regular (though not constant) persecution at the hands of Roman authorities. This experience, and its resulting martyrs and apologists, would have significant historical and theological consequences for the developing faith.

Logic says: you can't prosecute Catholics that are that there!!!!

Theology number two

And Jesus preached in the Jewish temple ... "Before you can follow in my footsteps, you have to first follow the Catholic faith, and if you ask me why ... well, it's because the Catholics wrote the theology to suit their own wills and they wrote it that way ... so don't blame me."

You don't even know there will be a "big day", yet claim it to be truth.

According to NDEs, the only judgment that occurs, is a "being of light" ASKS a question (in some form):

"what have you done with your life?"

or

"How do you think your life went?"

As you can see, it isn't "God" or Jesus judging us, it is ourselves.

The power of Self.

Why don't you believe Jesus?

....we should believe you, but theologians are full of crap simply by your say so?

Anything else you "believe" the creator would or wouldn't be supportive of?

What does that have to do with the proven historical record I showed you regards the Christians, not Catholics, because thee were none, being persecuted some three hundred years after Christ declared He would build His church!!!!!
