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

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.

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!

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!

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.

Revelation 17 and 18.
Revelation 17
1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
Nero didn't reign over the kings of the earth.
Seems you have believed Jesuit lies StarC
At that time Rome was the super power, Nero was emperor.! Duh!

Homework for Tiger Lilly

THIS IS THE TEACHING OF THE APOSTLES THAT WALKED THE EARTH WITH JESUS!!!!!!!

Not a private interpretations like yours, a person with no authority!!!

*[17:1–6] Babylon, the symbolic name (Rev 17:5) of Rome, is graphically described as “the great harlot.”

*[17:2] Intercourse…harlotry: see note on Rev 14:4. The pagan kings subject to Rome adopted the cult of the emperor.

*[17:3] Scarlet beast: see note on Rev 13:1–10. Blasphemous names: divine titles assumed by the Roman emperors; see note on Rev 13:5–6.

*[17:6] Reference to the great wealth and idolatrous cults of Rome.

*[17:6b–18] An interpretation of the vision is here given.

*[17:8] Allusion to the belief that the dead Nero would return to power (Rev 17:11); see note on Rev 13:3.

*[17:9] Here is a clue: literally,“Here a mind that has wisdom.” Seven hills: of Rome.

*[17:10] There is little agreement as to the identity of the Roman emperors alluded to here. The number seven (Rev 17:9) suggests that all the emperors are meant; see note on Rev 1:4.

*[17:11] The beast: Nero; see note on Rev 17:8.

*[17:12–13] Ten kings who have not yet been crowned: perhaps Parthian satraps who are to accompany the revived Nero (the beast) in his march on Rome to regain power; see note on Rev 13:3. In Rev 19:11–21, the Lamb and his companions will conquer them.

*[17:16–18] The ten horns: the ten pagan kings (Rev 17:12) who unwittingly fulfill God’s will against harlot Rome, the great city; cf. Ez 16:37.

Jews, Christians and Muslims all say that there is one god. Yet they continually fight over who the god loves.

Just like little children fighting over who daddy or mommy loves best.

Silly people!

Mary is dead and you know it. She has not yet been resurrected.
We pray to God in the name of Yeshua.
Jesus is our ONLY mediator.
Why go through another mediator?
Praying to Yeshua Jesus is far more comforting than praying to Mary who cannot hear us.

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.

The assumption of Mary was invented by the RCC to explain the Rosary and why they are to pray to her.

We've been thru this before The Way was never a "Church" it was a way of life for those that believe. NOT A Church!!!

The Roman soldiers had no authority to name Jesus Church.

Saint Peter, the Pope had the authority given to him by Jesus.
