On February 24th 303 AD, Pagan Rome and the four Emperors that governed it, launched the biggest mass persecution in the history of Christianity. They leveled every Church in the empire; rounded up the Pope and every Bishop, Priest and Deacon they could find and killed them. They confiscated every piece of Christian scripture they could get their hands on and burned them. Christians by the thousands were slaughtered or imprisoned. No one in their right mind would have admitted they were a follower of Jesus Christ.
Unless there was something real burning in their hearts.
My point is that, Christianity should have ended in the yrs following 303 AD, but 10 yrs later, the very Empire that brutalized the Catholic Church for 300 yrs converted to the faith. How does that happen? Why would they decide to follow a poor defenseless homeless man who's been 'dead' for 3 centuries and apparently wasn't powerful enough to get down from the cross even though He said He was God???
Like I said, there was something burning then and it continues today and we call that the Holy Spirit.
Catholics are forever trying to sell to the world, the idea that Christ, a Jew, and His 12 Jewish apostles, during the time that Christ was on earth, established the Roman Catholic Church, that everyone knows, that even as of today, is for Gentiles and not Jews!!!!

Quote: After excerpts from the second volume of the pope’s book on Jesus made the rounds last week, featuring his rejection of the idea that “the Jews” killed Christ, the full text adds another point with important implications for Christian/Jewish relations -- in effect, that Christianity “must not concern herself with the conversion of the Jews.”

The comment comes in Benedict XVI’s book Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week, the full text of which was released today.

Great. Thanks for again making my point and this time - admitting you are trying to be nasty.

That is the exact opposite of what Jesus taught and the god you claim to follow. And you even say it is "fun" doing the opposite of what your god taught.

Is it coming to you yet?

Heck, you just wrote how it's fun to do the opposite of Jesus' teachings, and you are still angry at me for pointing out your hypocrisy?

The "fun" you are feeling is Satan.

Ok Tiger, what happens if I read my Bible (and I have my whole life) Confrint reads his Bible and you read your Bible and we all come to different conclusions. Now what?
You know this is the reality. If you put 5 people in separate rooms to read the bible, when they come out, who've got 5 different religions.
What if Confrint and I take a vote and decide you are wrong. Now what?
What if your grandkids undo your interpretations and now your Christianity is different than theirs?
Do you honestly believe THIS is the religion that Jesus Christ started and His Apostles went to their deaths to establish?
Show us how five different people could see five different messages in:

But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

I know yours is: It says Christ is God!!!!!! Which all can see is BS

You have the God given right to reject the Sacred Word of God...the Bible..
your right on both replies to my posts,i choose to believe what i see and know for a fact,and the fact is there is no solid proof a god exists and it can not be proven going by a incomplete book,there was something in the books the Catholics didn't want the world to know,and that must be,it would prove they are not gods church,and there is no definite dates concerning anything the bible,all dates are of pagan origin,can you explain why that is? and why nothing exists to prove that a god actually exists,everything mysteriously disappears,why is that?there to many inconsistencies that a god really is out in space some where,the stories of the bible mirror to many other stories that were written well before the one god theory was invented.and speaking of gods where did all the gods go from Greek mythology? and Egyptian gods,an viking gods? what happened to them? why are they so easily dismissed? the books burned by the idiotic pagan/christian church leaders may have something to do with it. show me something concrete for proof,find dates that stand alone concerning Jesus/god.as i stated before the greatest event in mans history and we have hardly no history at all,only one set of incomplete scriptures that were not taken seriously when first discovered.

I can provide plenty of Biblical evidence which says it is not conjecture. Through all of the Bible, it is clear that the promise is of a resurrectiom, not of a pass into Heaven when you die.

If only this was understood by Catholics, they would leave their church having been deceived by the "pillar of truth".

Tiger Lily:
When one passes from the temporal world, to the eternal world, which we term as death, then descriptions and metaphors often breakdown.
Our expectation and hope that Christ's Second Coming is soon, but likewise we hope it is delayed so that more souls should accept Christ.
Paul saw the "third heaven", the writer of the Book of Revelation saw the heavens as well. Does that mean it was a vision, or real or both?
After one dies, does one wait in temporal time, for eternal effects?
Much of scripture was written after visions. John in Revelation, Daniel: both were revealed history in dreams.
Read Daniel and you will see empires depicted as animals. Same with Revelation but the timeline reverses.
When one dies, one is unconscious in the grave.

Ecclesiastes 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

9:6 Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.

9:10 Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave,(Hebrew Sheol ) where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.

... until Jesus comes and awakens you from the dead.

Read and understand.

Prayers for the dead are based on the false teaching that man possesses an immortal soul.

Some believe that at death a wicked person's "immortal" soul is tormented in hell.

Friends and relatives then pray that the departed "soul" be spared some of its suffering.

However, the Bible says that the soul itself can die (Ezekiel 18:4, 20; also, compare the last parts of Genesis 2:7, 17).

In addition, Solomon says the human spirit (breath) returns to God, not to some place of punishment (Ecclesiastes 12:7; see Job 32:8).

God preserves the spirit (breath) until He can return it in the resurrection from the dead when eternal judgment—to either eternal life or eternal death—is determined (see Ezekiel 37:1-14; Revelation 20:14-15; 21:6-8).

There are absolutely no biblical grounds for the doctrine of the immortality of the soul.
God ALONE is immortal.

AN UNBROKEN HISTORY

"Jesus said his Church would be "the light of the world." He then noted that "a city set on a hill cannot be hid" (Matt. 5:14). This means his Church is a visible organization. It must have characteristics that clearly identify it and that distinguish it from other churches. Jesus promised, "I will build my Church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it" (Matt. 16:18). This means that his Church will never be destroyed and will never fall away from him. His Church will survive until his return.

Among the Christian churches, only the Catholic Church has existed since the time of Jesus. Every other Christian church is an offshoot of the Catholic Church. The Protestant churches were established during the Reformation, which began in 1517.(Most of today’s Protestant churches are actually offshoots of the original Protestant offshoots.

Only the Catholic Church existed in the tenth century, in the fifth century, and in the first century, faithfully teaching the doctrines given by Christ to the apostles, omitting nothing. The line of popes can be traced back, in unbroken succession, to Peter himself. This is unequaled by any institution in history.

Even the oldest government is new compared to the papacy, and the churches that send out door-to-door missionaries are young compared to the Catholic Church. Many of these churches began as recently as the nineteenth or twentieth centuries. Some even began during your own lifetime. None of them can claim to be the Church Jesus established."

Lets see... should we try Ox's criteria for salvation based on his private interpretation of the Bible?
-Deny that Jesus Christ is God.
-insult His Church that Apparently got His Ministry all screwed up.
-trash His Mother by saying she's just a vessel and if she didn't say yes to the Angel, someone else would have!
(If I was Christ, I wouldn't take to kindly to that.)
Now all I have to do is an alter call in one of those tent revival meetings then I'm saved eh?
don't need to wait until a tent revival, clay. My wife got saved on a sidewalk on the Main st in our hometown, over 31 years ago, and her salvation is still good today.

Yes, to all your questions.
Mary is not a god because she has no power of her own other than what other humans have.
Then why dies the RCC preach that subjects pray to Mary as the intercession to have prayers "relayed" in it's course to achieve it's destination?

"May we be assisted, we beseech Thee, O Lord, by the worshipful intercession of Thy glorious Mother, the ever-Virgin Mary; that we, who have been enriched by her perpetual blessings, may be delivered from all dangers, and through her loving kindness made to be of one heart and mind: Who livest and reignest world without end.

So much for the koran huh? God never came down and emphatically "approved" it.
Please show us all where your god came down and "approved" your book once it was finally composed. I can't seem to recall that happening either. Unless of course, you want to allude to what your bishops or papal decrees say. They were just men with an agenda...not a god.
