Clay, as the Bereans did, we are told to compare scripture with scripture: verse by verse: line by line.
When we do this, a pattern appears. We discern the meaning by comparison.
You on the other hand have just a catechism which has changed many many times.
Just proves that you are not in any way in a church endorsed by God.
Interesting.

Who's scripture do you use for that?
Who's interpretations do you use?

I have 73 Books in my Bible and you only have 66.
Looks like I have more of Gods word to beat you over the head with.

"For if he were not expecting that those who had fallen would rise again, it would be foolish to pray for the dead. But if he was looking to the splendid reward that is laid up for those who fall asleep in godliness, it was a holy and pious thought. Therefore he made atonement for the dead, that they might be delivered from their sin"

2maccabees 12: 44-46

Not scripture you say. Says who? What authority determines this?

Wow, have you got a short fuse!
All I did was ask a question and you jumped down my throat.
I don't know what your problem is.
In answer to the question you asked Anthony.....no, a divorced Catholic cannot remarry in the Church.
See how easy it is? Ask a question, get an answer. No histrionics. No drama.
You take what I have said and assume that I am the one with the short fuse.Sorry my question was an honest one and it was for Tony and not for you.Please leave me alone...and I will leave you alone...I know you well enough to know what your intentions were with that Orthodox question as I now know what your intentions are now.I stated in the question to Tony that it was an honest question.I have no intentions of wasting my time fighting with you...

The act of legitimately speaking in tongues was. Just because someone says its a language does not mean it is. Its never been proven that the new Pentecostal movement is doing anything other than gibberish. Its not too hard, Preston, to figure out if an actual language is being spoken or a 'ga bla googy ga de jebudie doo doo'
Sadly, self induced convincing is the culprit here.

When you learn to speak in the 6.000 known languages of man AND all the languages of angels (don't know how many), then we will consider you an authority on the subject.

My Church .My Church. My Church. My Church is the True Church. My Church follows Scripture, Your church does this which means it is not True. My church does this which means it is better than yours. And don't tell me that Scripture tells us to defend our faith. Read this holistically in terms of Christ's message. This is about pride. This is not about Christ. Who will win the debate. It is about Christ. Christ was the one Who suffered on the Cross, It is not about you,

I'm a little surprised the Orthodox allow 3. I never knew that. Why?
The Catholic Church views marriage as a Holy Sacrament. So it can't be undone. Like our first Communion and Baptism. If we renounce those things, its a sin.
There's no question people get their marriage annulled through the Church and often there is no valid reason for it. The couple either lies about the circumstances of the marriage or the investigators don't do a good job checking it out.
In some cases, members of the Church turned a blind eye while investigating the annullment.(The Kennedys benefited from this). But the truth in the Catholic teachings remain the same, even if her own Bishops break it.
Devorce anulment call it what you wish...the Orthodox church at less acknowledge that the marriage took place and was disolved.....its about truth isnt it...

Please except my condolences, I am sorry to hear about your daughter.
For a person to get to the point of suicide, the pain must be unbearable.
My daughter tried just last year, in fact she was dead when the paramedic's got to the house, they were able to revive her.
My 12 yr. granddaughter found her and thought she was just passed out drunk.
They had to fly her here to Sudbury, it wasn't the first time she tried to kill herself.
We are not to judge a person, because only God knows what goes on inside a person to drive them to such desperate measures.
Only man condemns another not God.

who="Preston" as I have said numerous times, my friend Tom was praying one night and began to speak in tongues. the woman that he was praying for/with, understood what he was saying as it was in her native language which was Vietnamese.
however saying that, I do agree that some of this phenomenon is not as accurate as what Tom had told to me. So, If God was able to do that in Pentecost, He still is able to do it today. He hasn't changed, only people change or try to change His Word.
and I thought of this yesterday, if you or I were there on that very Special Day, someone would have been speaking to us in English, so we would have known what had happened, just as those visitors heard
**********
You are right. Scripture declares that all of them heard IN HIS OWN LANGUAGE.
KayMarie
All language has characteristics within the language. Some - like Spanish, German and English - can easily be identified as a language by a foreign ear. Others can be identified by breaking down the pattern, correlations between words and sentences. There has to be a structure.

At no time since the invention of audio recordings, has ANY Pentecostal group proven to be speaking in tongues.

Nobody said anything about Him being a drunk. Drinking wine in moderation does not turn one into a "drunk". And they would have had no cause to accuse Jesus of being a wine-bibber had the "fruit of the vine" not been fermented.
Jesus drank alcoholic wine. He miraculously changed water into alcoholic wine. He gave His disciples alcoholic wine at the Last Supper.
The verbal gymnastics you teetotalers need to go through to avoid this truth is astounding.

Are you telling me that your Eucharist wine is fermented???

But why 3? Who says 3 is the max? You have to admit, Jesus was quite clear about Marriage.
I'm not being a jerk, I'm genuinely interested in this. I didn't know the Orthodox position until today.
What's the Orthodox position on contraception? Just curious. I know most of Christianity was opposed to it until about 80 yrs ago. Now, only the Catholic Church (I think) stands against it.

She had three major operations by the time she was seven years of age ... and neither her emotional, nor her physical suffering was going to end ... so she ended it herself.
She believed she was going to the "light."

With The Eagle.
I long with the eagle, on swift silent wing
To glide o’er the earth and of freedom to sing
Released from the bonds of this earthbound plight
To master the grace of his effortless flight
To ravish the glorious sunrise unfurled
From high on a cliff, at the top of the world
To observe far below, life’s dramas unfold
To hold in your grasp nature’s mysteries untold
Silence descends as day draws to a close
Westward the sun hangs in hazy repose
Suspended within a rosy-hued sky
The eagle is solemn, with watchful eye
Though my body be bound by earthly ties
In mind and spirit with the eagle I rise
To ponder the drama of life far below
Wild and free with the eagle I go
**********
I found your poem in some Else's post, and wish to comment. The poem is good, by the way.
Do you feel that God let you down when you lost your daughter? If so, I have a word for you. There IS a future, and there IS a God in heaven Who cares for you...AND for your daughter.
Your daughter made her choice, God did not make that decision.
However, Jesus said that, "NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD". The world would tell you that all is lost; that your child is lost.
But the Bible declares that, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved, AND YOUR HOUSE."
The Greek word translated 'shall' is stronger than the English, and says, MUST, or WILL HAVE to be saved. You CANNOT believe in Jesus, and NOT be saved. Likewise your house (family); your daughter.
There is hope of salvation for her...and you...if you will simply believe His Word. You SHALL (MUST, WILL HAVE TO BE) saved.
Blessings...

Amen KayMarie, very nicely put, God's love and Mercy endureth forever.

I asked my Dad when I was little if we are to pray for the dead, he said no, he was right, the above does not belong in the Bible.

The other sixty-six books determines and confirms this.

There is "no such thing" as MY CHURCH!!!! It is HIS CHURCH!!! JESUS CHRISTS CHURCH!!!! In Matthew 16, Jesus tells us that upon this rock, that He will build HIS Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it......The Church that Christ refers to has, is and will always be HIS CHURCH.,,,,,, HIS One TRUE Apostolic (Universal-Catholic Church)-----confirmed, verified, authenticated and Proven in Sacred Church History for over 2000 years, as (HE is the vine, we are the branches).

Not one time has it been proven Kay. You'd think just once, one of ya might luck out and form words that make up an unknown language. I saw a great documentary on this. It was easy for the investigation team to break down the audio to see if they were really speaking in tongues. They were not in case after case. Its self induced trickery is all.
I believe it can happen, just like on Pentecost. But you'd need the Holy Spirit in ya. To be honest ma'am, judging by the false accusations towards Catholics by you two, I don't think you're speaking in tongues.
