Had Jesus lived, he would have encouraged the building of more synagogues ... NOT Christian churches.
When you find time.....please edict and correct Strong's Greek Lexicon...would appreciate it...

Then do the same for the English dictionary: synagogue:
house of God, house of prayer, house of worship, place of worship - any building where congregations gather for prayer....

This is also saying a synagogue is a church!!!!!! Plus it says a church is a synagogue!!!!!

Deny it and have all the temper tantrums you want, but you really don't know what you're talking about. Homosexual men were responsible for almost all of the abuse cases in the comprehensive independent report, not pedophiles.

If you are going to advertize Rome..
JUST DON'T STOP AT THE FIRST VERSES PRINT ALL the truth
~~~
Rom 1:15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.
Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Rom 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Rom 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
I'm not advertising Rome, I'm defending her against your attacks with the words of St. Paul who praises her and her faith.

Can you tell me where your Pennsylvania pentecostal compound is mentioned in the bible?

Peter himself the chief of the Apostles, the first in the Church, the friend of Christ, who received a revelation not from man, but from the Father, as the Lord bears witness to him, saying,'Blessed are thou, Simon Bar-Jona, because flesh and bone hath not revealed it to thee, but my Father who is in heaven'; this very Peter,- and when I name Peter, the great Apostles, I name that unbroken rock, that firm foundation, the great Apostle, the first of the disciples, the first called and the first who obeyed."

The truth: 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.
The Catholic bishop of Antioch wrote letters referring to the Catholic Church as a well established entity by the turn of the first century.

Not one iota of evidence exists of anyone referring to the Southern baptist denomination of protestantism until almost 1900 years later.

Sexual orientation is an adult attraction to other adults, About.com adoption expert Carrie Craft explains. Pedophilia is an adult sexual attraction to children. Yet, myths that link gay men with child abuse continue to circulate, especially in the wake of the latest priest-child abuse scandals.

If a synagogue is the same as a church, why do Christians not go to synagogues to pray and worship the supposed Jewish god?

The Jehovah's Witness are about a hundred yrs old. I don't think Christ was referring to them.
Come to think of it, how old is the Pentecostal movement?

At least as old as the day of Pentecost. It started in the Upper Room in Jerusalem.

Two men walking along the railroad crossing at Howe Springs and Bannockburn roads in Florence County have died after being hit by a train, according to Florence County Coroner Keith Von Lutcken.
The 22- and 28-year-old men were hit from behind just before 6 pm Thursday evening, according to Amtrak officials.
Lutcken says the men appear to have been struck from behind.
Officials say the Amtrak train was traveling from New York to Savannah.
About 133 people were on the train. They were not injured.
The railroad crossing was shut down while emergency crews were on the scene, but has since reopened.
The victims both lived in Florence and their names will be released Friday morning.
The accident is under investigation by CSX, Florence County Coroner's Office and the Florence County Sheriff's Office.
The incident is under investigation.
~~~
These young men ...While attempting to avoid being hit by one train...stepped into the path of another going in the opposite direction.
They were caught between the two trains and there was nothing left to identify of their bodies, but their library cards and billfolds.
How very tragic
Please pray for their loved ones
Your god could see the train coming and he did nothing to prevent the tragedy ... so all went according to his will.

You best stop complaining about the will of the god that according to theology created evil. He's probably on the same level of mental abilities as are you. Sarcasm intended

Are you indicating that the Jews (faithful to Judaism) came up with the word Christian so that Catholics could branch OFF of Judaism with a new sect???

How ludicrous.

Don't spend too much money in there! We'll be fishing Everett Bay (by the casino) and off Moccasin point. Stayed at Bayview lodge several years ago, nice resort. Nothing like being on the lake with your sons, dads, brothers and nephews enjoying a few beers and each other's company.

Thought for the day:

During these serious and troubled times, people of all faiths should remember these four great religious truths:
1. Muslims do not recognize Jews as God's Chosen People.
2. Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah.
3. Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian world.
4. Baptists do not recognize each other at the liquor store.

Of course it is.

My guess is, within ten years, the Catholic hierarchy will bend to the pressure put upon them from all sides and agree that to be homosexual is now okay with "god."

It wasn't long ago that Catholics OWNED black slaves and preached that blacks had no souls, were on the same level as other animals and that god ordained slavery.

Many things have changed. For instance, the pope no longer preaches that heretics and witches must be burned at the stake to please "god."

That god needs to be pulled out of service by people refusing to believe in such a horrible image.

But you SO idolize that word "salvation" ... that's all that matters to you.

(11) He proves the unrighteousness of man by referring to many types of wickedness, from which (if not from all, yet at the least from many of them) no man is altogether free.
(m) To a corrupt and perverse mind, by which it comes to pass that the conscience, having been removed by them, and they having almost no more remorse for sin, run headlong into all types of evil.

So you refuse to retain the knowledge of God in you mind and have become every whit reprobate
There is not neutral stance...
You evidently are choosing to be lost worlds with out end...
Would you please post some scriptures that don't agree with your stance on issues.

I'm SURE they exist, as that bible is a book that has been USED for all purposes.
