BREAKING NEWS!! BREAKING NEWS!!

It has been decided by men, in reference when Jesus said, "I'm coming back", that it was implied that this return will only occur when the person dies and at that moment.

Jesus will be coming to your "acceptance party" and will be "in the clouds".

Sooooo, now that we've closed this open issue, everyone can go home now!

YEAH TEAM!!

As for the verses from Revelation you posted. Yes, that is Mary. Who else "gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron"?(verse 5)
There are no heretics - according to "God".

Why do you try to mislead others with these tales?

UNLESS.....

You do have a listing of religions that "God" has specifically rejected and also has called them "heresy".

Do you?

And what is this "destiny of the soul"?

You seem to know what will happen to others.

How? I have no idea.

But you will claim it repeatedly.

How is it that you know what happens to the soul, whereas other's and their theories are incorrect.

Lay it on me GiF.

The whole thing can be boiled down to this:
Is there such a thing as absolute truth?

Gotta run for now.

"As for ourselves, let each one of us dig down after the root of evil which is within one, and let one pluck it out of one's heart from the root. It will be plucked out if we recognize it. But if we are ignorant of it, it takes root in us and produces its fruit in our heart. It masters us. We are its slaves. It takes us captive, to make us do what we do not want; and what we do want, we do not do. It is powerful because we have not recognized it. While it exists it is active. Ignorance is the mother of all evil. Ignorance will result in death, because those who come from ignorance neither were nor are nor shall be.[...] will be perfect when all the truth is revealed. For truth is like ignorance: while it is hidden, it rests in itself, but when it is revealed and is recognized, it is praised, inasmuch as it is stronger than ignorance and error. It gives freedom."

"Ignorance is a slave. Knowledge is freedom. If we know the truth, we shall find the fruits of the truth within us. If we are joined to it, it will bring our fulfillment."

I believe we established that Jesus gave Peter alone, the keys. There is no logical reasoning you can offer.
moving on...
Clement knew the Apostles personally, He heard the Gospel verbally from their mouths. How come you don't teach anything like him or any other Apostolic father?
I pray you're not THAT arrogant to believe, your interpretations of the Gospel are superior to Clement or Ignatius.
Again....you are saying the pope approved NABre is a farce!!!!

It say: Except for the plural of the verbs bind and loose, this verse is practically identical with Mt 16:19b and many scholars understand it as granting to all the disciples what was previously given to Peter alone.

This is what you sound like.....

Picture yourself in a cathedral in 451 CE - with a bunch of other bishops. You are all mulling about - whispering this and that to each other, knowing who is not with your viewpoint and knowing who is.

But you look around, and you look for Jesus, or "God", or the HS, and not one of these entities are present.

So you take you seat and when the announcement is made, to determine the divinity of Jesus, you look attentive.

Okay, so you are geared up and ready to make a decision on a person's divinity, without ever knowing this person, but only have second hand information.

How is is that this person can make a decision on this - 400 years later?

**********

Why can't you be honest and admit that fallible men cannot determine the characteristics of an infallible "God"?

You've placed to much credit with men, instead of "God".

It just irks me to think that just because Mary gave birth to a savior, she thought she was god's first encounter of the same kind.

She wasn't you know. Some believe that god is a philanthropist, but actually, I have it on good authority that he was a philanderer ... spreading his invisible semen here and there to create other sons of gods that were supposed to save other believers.

I wouldn't trust him. Dr. Phil says that past behavior indicates future behavior.

"Absolute truth" - occurs only when one dies.

Up until then, it is only speculation.

marge, if our Church is over 2000 years old and yours is only 100 or so years....how can you say we added, if we had the original Bible first??? You guys DELETED what you didn't like and changed it to fit your own agenda.
**********
Just another lie, Star. Our church has been around since Jesus. We've been persecuted, and chased from place to place, but our different names simply came about when groups re-located.

To name a few....
If you are a Methodist, your religion was launched by John and Charles Wesley in England in 1744.

If you are a Unitarian, Theophilus Lindley founded your church in London in 1774.

If you are a Mormon (Latter Day Saints), Joseph Smith started your religion in Palmyra, N.Y., in 1829.

If you are a Baptist, you owe the tenets of your religion to John Smyth, who launched it in Amsterdam in 1605.

If you are of the Dutch Reformed church, you recognize Michaelis Jones as founder, because he originated your religion in New York in 1628.

If you are a member of the Churches of Christ your church began near the beginning of the 19th century in New England. Abner Jones, Barton Stone and Alexander Campbell were some of the most well known originators of your religion.

If you worship with the Salvation Army, your sect began with William Booth in London in 1865.

If you are a Christian Scientist, you look to 1879 as the year in which your religion was born and to Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy as its founder.

***One of these is your church, Which one?

If you belong to one of the religious organizations known as "Church of the Nazarene," "Pentecostal Gospel," "Holiness Church," "Pilgrim Holiness Church," "Jehovah's Witnesses," your religion is one of the hundreds of new sects founded by men within the past century.

If you are Roman Catholic, you know that your religion was founded in the year 33 by Jesus Christ the Son of God, and it is still the same Church.

LOL, Four Square pentecostal, your church is a new church started in 1922 by a women. Nice try tho!

That shout “Come up here” is the Rapture of the Church. From that moment forward in the Book of Revelation, never again is the Church mentioned as being an earthly institution.

All Christians are Mary's spiritual children. She was the very first Christian.
I would sooner stab hot needles in my eyes than go back to the baptist church. Doing so would be like moving from a palace into a stick hut.
Not trying to be mean, I'm Just Sayin.
I am glad your happy where you are, Mary is not my spiritual Mother.
I resent the fact you would even make a claim that she is.
She is not God's Mother either, so you didn't learn much when you left the Baptist Church.

Many religions have found the way to justify their behavior by obscuring Biblical verses like you just did.
Jesus birth was prophesised in the Old Testament. The focus was on him not Mary.
In the New Testament the focus was still on Jesus. Everything happen around him not Mary.
All the verses you posted talk about Jesus not Mary, even tho she is mentioned it is not about her.
Prayers and statues of Mary are a bad thing.
Everything I posted is in The Holy Bible!! Why would you think it is to justify?

BIG D, if you remember the days when you went to Mass, Jesus is the CENTER of our Holy Mass!! All Catholic know that ITS ALL ABOUT JESUS!! We honor Blessed Mother as Jesus wanted, when dying on the cross he said "Behold your Mother" that's what we do.

Is that what you do to justify your living in sin by breaking Jesus rule that says, "whoever divorces his spouse and marries another commits adultery"???? People on this board from different faiths are also justifying their sin, LTM, OX, and you. And still call themselves Christians.(wonder who else)

Honoring and having 3 dimension picture of our family in heaven is not a sin. its only a sin if be we believe they are gods like old pagan Rome.
Blessed Mother Mary is not a god.

That means when you trusted them to know that truth, you gave complete credit to the men.
