You've been duped Clay to think that a sinner, a flawed man, would be the head of Christ's church. Makes no sense whatsoever. Christ's true church is all who are born again christians and they all have the keys.
AMEN chuck.
The keys of heaven belong to born-again Spirit filled Christians.
Who are the church of Christ.
Without the BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND FIRE; WHICH IS THE BAPTISM OF JESUS; NOT JOHN THE BAPTIST.
NO ONE CAN ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
THE BIBLE CLEARLY SAYS "YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN : JESUS SPEAKING"

Century after century of torture, imprisonment, and murder ... all the while preaching love as the answer.

OH stop being so silly by pointing fingers "outward." The Protestants were every bit as cruel as the Catholics.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>
From the book,“A History of Christianity … volume 2 Clyde L. Manschreck, Editor, comes the following………
Through a consistory of six clergymen and twelve laymen, Calvin enforced piety and rules of conduct more in the spirit of the Old than the New Testament. His overall rule was “to glorify God and praise him forever,” and the practical means of achieving this was strict discipline. He could not tolerate anything that seemed to dishonor God of the elect, and he punished drunkenness, profanity and divergent views with severity.
(18) Fines were assessed for not attending church, adulterers were sentenced to death, dancing was punishable by imprisonment, a child was beheaded for striking his parents. And a critic was beheaded for placing a placard on Calvin’s pulpit.
Oh god june-ism; are you the only one who can tear the Catholic'
and speak against their religious teachings.
I see now you have one set of rules for you, and another for everyone else.
Your the biggest hypocrite on here .

I've been on threads of forums dealing with those in religion since 2006.

In that time, I have been threatened continually with hellfire and damnation by Christians who claim they love me.

They use their bibles as battering rams, wanting me to join up with their cults so that I will be saved as they believe they are saved.

Why a god would love that type of behavior is a mystery to me ... but then even squid love their own.

Pronouncing the Name of God
Nothing in the Torah prohibits a person from pronouncing the Name of God. Indeed, it is evident from scripture that God's Name was pronounced routinely. Many common Hebrew names contain "Yah" or "Yahu," part of God's four-letter Name. The Name was pronounced as part of daily services in the Temple.
The Mishnah confirms that there was no prohibition against pronouncing The Name in ancient times. In fact, the Mishnah recommends using God's Name as a routine greeting to a fellow Jew. Berakhot 9:5. However, by the time of the Talmud, it was the custom to use substitute Names for God. Some rabbis asserted that a person who pronounces YHVH according to its letters (instead of using a substitute) has no place in the World to Come, and should be put to death. Instead of pronouncing the four-letter Name, we usually substitute the Name "Adonai," or simply say "Ha-Shem" (lit. The Name).
Although the prohibition on pronunciation applies only to the four-letter Name, Jews customarily do not pronounce any of God's many Names except in prayer or study. The usual practice is to substitute letters or syllables, so that Adonai becomes Adoshem or Ha-Shem, Elohaynu and Elohim become Elokaynu and Elokim, etc.
With the Temple destroyed and the prohibition on pronouncing The Name outside of the Temple, pronunciation of the Name fell into disuse. Scholars passed down knowledge of the correct pronunciation of YHVH for many generations, but eventually the correct pronunciation was lost, and we no longer know it with any certainty. We do not know what vowels were used, or even whether the Vav in the Name was a vowel or a consonant. See Hebrew Alphabet for more information about the difficulties in pronouncing Hebrew. Some religious scholars suggest that the Name was pronounced "Yahweh," but others do not find this pronunciation particularly persuasive.
Some Christian scholars render the four-letter Name as "Jehovah," but this pronunciation is particularly unlikely. The word "Jehovah" comes from the fact that ancient Jewish texts used to put the vowels of the Name "Adonai" (the usual substitute for YHVH) under the consonants of YHVH to remind people not to pronounce YHVH as written. A sixteenth century German Christian scribe, while transliterating the Bible into Latin for the Pope, wrote the Name out as it appeared in his texts, with the consonants of YHVH and the vowels of Adonai, and came up with the word JeHoVaH, and the name stuck.
I follow hat you are saying and have read it before Guess my point would be if im not mistaken the bible come from the dead sea scrolls wrote in Aramaic a for of Hebrew It reads YHWH In short Yahweh This is not a translation So somehow he got the title god The very thing he does not want you to worship.but yet the world worships him as a god....why does the world worship him as a god when he is not.I'm not trying to be smart it just dont make any sense to me and he even says you will cause them to forget my name

Go look it up Clay you Catholic's are a bunch of lazy people.
We have shown you a number of time the truth of the gospel Jesus preached yet you call us lairs.
You say you gave us the Holy Scriptures but persecute us for hold true to its teachings.
You are nothing but a brain washed individual holding on to traditions taught belong to the catholic church.{Not The Teachings About The Kingdom Of God.}
The traditions taught in the Bible was in regards to the wedding between a Husband and His Wife, and how Jesus used it to explain the church as the Bride of Christ 'HIS HOLY PURE RIGHTIOUS CHURCH'
JESUS IS THE BRIDEGROOM AND THE CHURCH IS THE BRIDE.
WHEN JESUS COMES BACK HE IS COMING FOR A PURE HOLY CHURCH. WHO MASTER IS THE KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS.
THAT LEAVES THE CATHOLIC CHURCH OUT IN THE DARK.
YOUR CHURCH WORSHIP MANY god's AND A goddess, the statue you bow to and pray is not Mary the Mother of Jesus .
Go read the Bible yourself you lazy man. You expect everyone to be responsible for your salvation they aren't you are.
So Jesus is coming back to over 42,000 different brides?
Jesus is a polygamist?

Again, where in the Bible does Jesus Christ say all Born Again Christians have the keys so "Whatever you bind on Earth, shall be bound in Heaven, Whatever you loose on Earth shall be loosed in Heaven"?

Lets keep it real Chuck, you guy desperately need to remove Peter as the head Apostle, because you logically know that IF Christ His Church up with an Earthly head, then the generation had one as well. Hence, 266 later, we have Pope Francis.
You also know, that IF Peter used his authority to establish his successor, it would pose a terrible problem for the born again movement.

**Help me understand this Clay. If Peter is the rock and head of the church, it would contradict every verse I posted above. You've been duped Clay. There is no earthly true church.
The only one who's trying to dupe me is you. You can't answer my question?
'Where in the Bible does it say the keys Christ gave Peter are the Gospel?
I don't find anywhere where Jesus instructed a Bible be established as the authority on His Ministry either. While you're scrambling around looking for someone else's essay to help ya, answer that one too.

Yep you must be right. You don't get to go to heaven, because you don't believe that the "soul" transcends.

You just get to be "nothing".

It is well known that Jesus meant here simply that if anyone values any human relationship more than a relationship with God, they cannot be His disciple.

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."

Those in religion want to make me appear as egotistical for not believing in religion. But we all know that they only place faith in their own religions, while putting down the religions of others as nonsensical and even as evil.

I at least had the humility to back away from the idea that I could know anything about what occurs after the death of physical bodies.

I don't know and that is because I can't know what I don't know.
