I was raise on the Catholic propaganda, it was when I finally read my bible instead of taking man's word; that the Truth of the Word and Jesus' shed blood set me free.
Let me give you an example: up until 1930, all of Christianity was against the use of contraption, believing that God is the author of life and we should not prevent life from entering into this world. Sex is the method that God has for bringing life into existence. Therefore, it should only be done within the sacrament of Holy Matrimony by a man and woman, who formed a covenant bond that should not be broken. Contraception has opened the doors to recreational sex outside of marriage.
This is the world that Protestantism has condoned by forming their own Christianity based on what they interpret in the Bible. This is what happens when you remove the Church.

Less than 100 yrs later, not one Protestant sect opposes contraception and countless others redefined Marriage to allow same sex couples.
Jr high students are given condoms and sex is taught as being ok to do before marriage.

Wake up people.

Divorce in a sacramental marriage IS NOT recognized by the Catholic Church.
Divorce IS recognized by protestant communities.

**********

We understand. The Catholic church thinks that IT makes a sacramental marriage...thus no divorce.

It DOES, however recognize divorce of Protestants...who, they say, weren't married to start with. When such people want a Catholic marriage/partner, they can divorce with 'church' approval.:(

I like Alex Jones, he's so kind. He's a deacon now. He and his wife were die hard pentecostals until they found the truth in the Catholic Church. Every once in a while EWTN airs their conversion story: "No Price Too High: Dinner With Alex Jones". In fact, he's doing a bible study series for them now.

In these fantasies Jesus has never been dressed as a Jew, but always as a Christian.

Jesus was born a Jew to Jewish parents, He is called the "KING OF THE JEWS". all who receive Jesus are Lord and Savior are adopted into the family of God Jesus is His first born only begotten son." So all who are born again have a Jewish heritage June. Salvation is from the Jews.
God never turned His back on anyone. Jew or other wise.
We who believe in Jesus are called Christ followers or followers of the way.
Jesus being the way. The first Christ-followers were Jewish.

Well considering "propoganda" is used to persuade others into the belief, it is.

Shoot you only use a portion of what Jesus taught.

If you use all of what he taught, it is no longer propoganda.

who="June VanDerMark" At one time in America those who were black could not hire a lawyer.
Because black people were not allowed by the white Christians to read and learn, they had no rights. And white Lawyers would not ever dream of taking the case of a black person, as they were terrified of those in religion such as the members of the Ku Klux Klan.
Now, many of these racists are simply jealous that black men and women have become lawyers and can assist those of their own race to have a taste of white "justice."

**********

Are you black? The blacks who claim to be avenging Travon Martin are no better than the white plantation owners who once enslaved them.

White people have learned, and have made strides toward helping black people.(Did you ever hear of affirmative action?)

I never owned a slave. I never even frowned on one. My family has never mistreated one.

How can REASONABLE black people justify the current black-on-white violence that goes on today.(Read: White Girl Bleed A Lot).

No, I am not black. I am white.

Hate results in more hate. The whites started the hate against the blacks by enslaving them and treating them in horrible ways.

So the hate from one race against the other keeps on going.

Beside that ... whites hate whites and blacks hate blacks.

There's enough hate in humans to keep hate going forever.

They get zapped when they do their alter call and misuse their grace from God, thinking they were just called by Him to preach the Bible and form a Christianity based on that. But what's the first thing they do after the euphoria of the alter call subsides? Trash the Catholic Church. That's a red flag that the 'Bible only' route is letting unholy influence dictate their new religion.
-Baptism eliminated
-Eucharist mocked and re- taught to mean opposite of what Christ taught.
-Confession mocked and eliminated.
-The Mother of Jesus Christ reduced to 'any ol lady that happened to say yes' if it wasn't her, it would have been someone else down the street.(I'm sure Jesus likes to hear that one)
-faith + works reduced to just 'faith'.
-scripture alone.
I'll stop there. But seriously, the fruits of demonic influence can be seeing. Contraception, abortion and same sex marriage are synonymous with Protestantland. Its started with a couple lies from Luther and blew up into a chaotic doctrinal mess.

*******

Clay, you are scary. I fear for one that will mock other Christians just because they don't see it their way. Protestants in general LOVE GOD, they love holiness, and they worship God, not a man.

'Christian' is exemplified by loving kindness. Love your enemies certainly is not characterized by hateful name calling, and mockery.

Please show more respect for HIM, even if you disagree with people.

THE EUCHARISTST

"I have no taste for corruptible food nor for the pleasures of this life. I desire the bread of God, which is the flesh of Jesus Christ, who was of the seed of David; and for drink I desire His blood, which is love incorruptible." St. Ignatius of Antioch ("Epistle to the Romans," c. 105 A.D.)

"Heretics abstain from the Eucharist and from prayer, because they do not confess that the Eucharist is the Flesh of our Savior Jesus Christ." St. Ignatius of Antioch ("Epistle to the Smyrneans," c. 105 A.D.)

"Not as common bread nor common drink do we receive these; but as we have been taught, the food which has been made into the Eucharist by the Eucharistic prayer set down by Him, and by the change of which our blood and flesh is nourished, is both the Flesh and Blood of that incarnated Jesus." St. Justin Martyr ("First Apology," c. 150 A.D.)

"If the Lord were from other than the Father (and thus capable of performing miracles), how could He rightly take bread, which is of the same creation as our own, and confess it to be His Body and affirm that the mixture in the cup is His Blood? When, therefore, the mixed cup (wine and water) and the baked bread receives the Word of God and becomes the Eucharist, the Body of Christ, and from these the substance of our flesh is increased and supported, how can they say that the flesh is not capable of receiving the gift of God, which is nourished by the Body and Blood of the Lord, and is in fact a member of Him?" St. Irenaeus ("Against Heresies," 189 A.D.)

"He (St. Paul) threatens, moreover, the stubborn and forward and denounces them, saying 'Whosoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of the Body and Blood of the Lord'(1 Corinthians 11:27). All these warnings being scorned and condemned (lapsed Christians will often take Communion) before their sin is expiated, before confession has been made of their crime, before their conscience has been purged by sacrifice and by the hand of the priest, before the offense of an angry and threatening Lord has been appeased,(and so) violence is done to His Body and Blood; and they sin now against their Lord more with their hand and mouth than when they denied the Lord." St. Cyprian of Carthage ("The Lapsed," 251 A.D.)

"He Himself, therefore, having declared and said of the Bread,'This is My Body,' who will dare any longer to doubt? And when He Himself has affirmed and said,'This is My Blood,' who can ever hesitate and say It is not His Blood? Do not, therefore, regard the bread and wine as simply that, for they are, according to the Master's declaration, the Body and Blood of Christ. Even though the senses suggest to you the other, let faith make firm. Do not judge in this matter by taste, but be fully assured by faith, not doubting that you have been deemed worthy of the Body and Blood of Christ." St. Cyril of Jerusalem ("Mystagogic," c. 350 A.D.)

"The bread and the wine of the Eucharist before the holy invocation of the adorable Trinity were simple bread and wine, but the invocation having been made, the bread becomes the Body of Christ and the wine the Blood of Christ." St. Cyril of Jerusalem ("Catechetical Lectures," 350 A.D.)

"Perhaps you may be saying:'I see something else; how can you assure me that I am receiving the Body of Christ?' It but remains for us to prove it. And how many are the examples we might use! Christ is in that Sacrament, because It is the Body of Christ." St. Ambrose ("The Mysteries," 390 A.D.)

Why not ... when your "god" commits abortions. The proof of god's murder in the womb is when fetuses come out of the as dead babies???

You need to know something. The 'pill' showed up in the middle of last century, but contraception was no stranger. My mom and dad had fifteen children; they opposed contraception. Mom had German measles during one of her pregnancies, and the family doctor offered an abortion (over 70 years ago). My parents decided to trust God, and my sister is quite well today.

My parents were God-fearing PROTESTANTS.

But lots of folk we knew used some of the known contraceptives of the day.
