Top 2 replies by catholics when they can't debate:
1 - Protestants have 40,000 different sections
2 - You are no authority on scripture
The thing is, those two things are true.
And to be honest, I've never witnessed such a lopsided debate like what takes place on this forum.
I'm not preventing you from worshiping God based on your understanding. I'm only interested in correcting your misconception about Catholicism.
I see with my own eyes that God works within Protestantism. You have a Bible, you have the ten commandments... you must be getting some graces by praying and obeying the ten commandments. But no Chuck, you're not an authority to dictate the Ministry of Jesus Christ. He already established His Church. He didn't just give us a Bible to figure out our own idea on His Ministry.

Mary is in the Bible a surprising amount, beginning the OT.
Catholics don't rely solely on the Bible to understand their Christian heritage and faith. So it is not a big deal that there is not a Bible verse that says:
"Mary is in heaven and can hear your prayer."
Most protestants won't believe anything that is not explicitely and clearly stated in the Bible. So, I was just asking for Biblical proof that Mary is not in heaven and can't hear us.
(Since protestant religion is Bible alone and nothing else.)
Got it. Thanks for explaining.

Here's what we know. No one can prove who Mary actually was, yet alone where she is today.

So it stands to reason that no one can prove where she is not.

To me it's very, very ironic.

First -- the Catholics took the Jew's Holy Book, twisted what the Jews taught, and made it their own.

Now -- the Protestants take the Catholic's Holy Book, twist what the CC taught, and made it their own.

Do you see the irony?

We as Catholics "don't have to sell" ANYTHING!! True Apostolic Church Historian authors and writers, including Apologist history authors and writers, both Catholic and Protestant (for over 2000 years) have PROVEN, VERIFIED and AUTHENTICATED over and over again that the Catholic Church, has, is and will continue to be the One True Church that Jesus Christ HIMSELF formed and established. It is "modernistic (bible only) fundies" who keep trying to manipulate, spin and editorialize the TRUTH of TRUE Church History to make it mean ONLY what they want it to mean.
NABre: Jesus’ church means the community that he will gather and that, like a building, will have Peter as its solid foundation. That function of Peter consists in his being witness to Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of the living God.

From your pope approved Bible...you are saying it is a farce...the pope is a dope for approving it!!!!

Pope Francis’ Sermon Sparks Debate:‘Even the Atheists’ Have Been Redeemed ‘With the Blood of Christ’
May. 23, 2013 11:33am Billy Hallowell

Atheist activists have long touted the notion that one doesn’t have to be religious to be considered a “good” person. On Wednesday, non-believers’ claims were given some credence when Pope Francis endorsed this view during Mass. Regardless of theological perspective, the pontiff said that “doing good” is a universal value that unites all of humanity. He also said that “even the atheists” have been redeemed “with the blood of Christ.”

Following the Vatican Radio report recapping Francis’ words, numerous media outlets highlighted the contents of his sermon. As a result, speculation and conversation will likely mount regarding what, exactly, it all meant.

Was he saying that non-believers, too, will inherit salvation? Or was he speaking more generally to the fact that all of humanity was saved by Jesus Christ’s actions on the cross? And then there’s the main question he attempted to answer: Are atheists really capable of being “good”?

As for this latter query, Francis made it clear that, in his view, it is possible for non-Catholics — and even those with no faith at all — to do good. Using the Bible (Gospel of Mark), Francis noted that even Jesus’ disciples assumed that only they could act in accordance with God’s will, because they possessed the truth.

But Jesus corrected them and told them to allow a man outside of their group be free to act in a positive fashion.Vatican Radio explains:

Wednesday’s Gospel speaks to us about the disciples who prevented a person from outside their group from doing good.“They complain,” the Pope said in his homily, because they say,“If he is not one of us, he cannot do good. If he is not of our party, he cannot do good.” And Jesus corrects them:“Do not hinder him, he says, let him do good.” The disciples, Pope Francis explains,“were a little intolerant,” closed off by the idea of possessing the truth, convinced that “those who do not have the truth, cannot do good.”“This was wrong ... Jesus broadens the horizon.” Pope Francis said,“The root of this possibility of doing good – that we all have – is in creation.”

Everyone, in Francis’ view, is a part of the human experience and has an inherent potential for goodness.

“The Lord created us in His image and likeness, and we are the image of the Lord, and He does good and all of us have this commandment at heart: do good and do not do evil. All of us,” Pope Francis said, going on to provide examples.“‘But, Father, this is not Catholic! He cannot do good.’ Yes, he can. He must. Not can: must! Because he has this commandment within him.”
Pope Francis Comments About Atheists, Redemption and Goodness Raise Eyebrows, Spark Conversation...

Here, Francis made a plethora of important statements. To begin, he claims that, regardless of whether they accept the notion, atheists, too, have been redeemed by Christ. The very definition of redemption is,“to buy or pay off; clear by payment,” thus it appears he is speaking here about sin and goodness — issues pertaining to Christ’s crucifixion...

Beyond that, Francis calls everyone, regardless of religious views, to do good and to find common ground. Rather than railing against one another, the Catholic leader wants to see people from all perspectives come together to work for humanity.

Rather than cutting non-believers out of the mix, it appears he’s taking extra steps to make them feel welcome — a noticeable departure from other past leaders.

Keep asking the questions that many are afraid to ask and be honest with answering.

May I ask - what are your answers to these questions?

I ask, because "your teachers and leaders" are men, just like all of those through history.

You would not have a belief if it wasn't for these men, unless you arrived at your belief in some supernatural way, in which I doubt.

Honesty is the best policy.

So Jesus had no soul/spirit while in Mary's womb?
If Jesus had no soul/spirit while in Mary's womb, then when did His spirit unite with His flesh?
Or are you saying Jesus never had a soul/spirit?

You are trying too hard. The Holy Spirit breathed God's Word into Mary. Her flesh clothed Him with a body of flesh. He was never without a soul/spirit.

Why you mad bro? By your logic, we can say that Jesus (divine) did not suffer for our sins on the cross. By your logic, it was Jesus (flesh) that suffered for us. Gee, I wonder why his whole body and soul were resurrected? When did they come together to become body(flesh) and soul(divine)? It makes no sense that you believe that there are 3 persons in one God and then in the next breath say that Jesus' flesh was separate from His divinity.

*********

Pedro, when your tooth aches, your whole body aches, and your spirit/soul feel depressed.
When Jesus suffered on the cross, His whole being 'suffered'. That physical body BELONGED to Jesus, and, as a result of His Presence in it, it was resurrected immortal.
When people allow Him to dwell in them, and die in faith, they too will be raised in an immortal body.
God is creating us to be an immortal body (if the 'clay' yields to Him)...and He is not finished with us yet.

So you and I agree that Mary gave birth to Jesus' entire Person, not just his flesh.
