They tortured, imprisoned and murdered in the god's supposed name for centuries.

If they are saved and being rewarded with eternal bliss ... any god that rewarded them would be in dire need of mental help.

You said just the other day the "the Word ( the bible ) was God". Why any Christian would listen to an idol (paper and ink) worshipper is beyond me.

The bible doesn't say the bible is sufficient.
The bible doesn't even say bible.
The bible doesn't have an insipred table of contents.
The Catholic Church decided what books made up the bible.
St. Paul was referring to the OT when he said this to St. Timothy because the NT wasn't written yet.
St. Paul says oral traditions are just as important.
The bible doesn't say all oral traditons were later recorded in the bible.
sola scriptura debunked.
The Bible doesn't mention cats either, but the absence of any verse mentioning them can hardly be considered to "debunk" the idea that they exist.

So if that's your claim, the words Christianity and Islam are not an issue at all ... as the father was Jewish and the son was Jewish.

I'm glad we agree!

<quoted text>what am I leaving out? I mentioned that the words "full of grace" are only mentioned twice in the NT and I gave the Books where they might be found.
again in the Book of Acts(concerning Steve) and in John concerning Jesus. may is never mentioned in that type of respect.
NEVER did mary ever give a testimony such as steven gave, nor did she live the life of Jesus. I never read that she ever laid hands on someone and they were healed. HAVE YOU? she had NO fruits such as the Apostles conveyed to people.
all she did was leave he young child alone in a large city. those fruits don't qualify her to b e "full of grace", in leaving Him, she qualifies as a disgrace according to our times and our Laws.
mary was a mortal woman, nothing special about her, she just happened to have had the correct bloodlines which made her available to God to use as a surrogate mother and so God used her in that fashion.
and I think God that in spite of her failure, he sanctified her with the Holy Ghost on the 50 th Day.
Like I said, every single debate should begin with sola scripture because you've decided that everything about Mary needs to be spelled in the 27 Books that made it into print. Right?

All you need to do is show me where Jesus Christ or His Apostles commanded such a thing, and I'll move down to Ohio and you can be my Pastor. lol

The bible and the bible alone, and my private judgement of the meaning of the bible is contrary to every Christian witness for the first 15 centuries. Even Luther was inconsolable when he realized what he'd done.

I don't know where I read it but it seems as if the Angel of the Lord meant Jesus..though of course the Hebrews did not know Him as,such.
RoSesz:

To me, there seems a lot of room in which to consider the term "angel of the Lord".

Perhaps the problem we have with the term is that in today's "modern" world, there isn't much room for angels in general. But for those who are aware of their presence, they are obviously at work.

I find, for myself, they work best in my dreams, so that I might reflect upon truths. They are for me messengers of God, and often I think they are in doing God's Will, aid me not only in mercy, but obedience to God.

Just last week, I was asking God's forgiveness for sin. I immediately went to sleep, and two angels were present in a dream/vision, and listened to me, which gave me greater understanding in the hope in Christ.

Somehow, I consider them always near.

Oh, heck no!
I'm talking about the one buried by the pyramids. It's been there since the end of the last ice age...before the first Egyptian dynasty. It can be located in the "circles, and not the triangles.
They tried to drill there once and hit an object that the drill could not penetrate. I believe THAT was it.

In the narrative, an angel of God is described as appearing in the bush,[7] and God is subsequently described as calling out from it to Moses, who had been grazing Jethro's flocks there.[1] When Moses starts to approach, God tells Moses to first take off his sandals, due to the place being holy ground,[8] and Moses hides his face.[9] Textual scholars regard the account of the burning bush as being spliced together from the Jahwist and Elohist texts, with the Angel of Yahweh and the removal of sandals being part of the Elohist version, and the Yahwist's parallels to these being God and the turning away of Moses' face, respectively[10][11]

When challenged on his identity, Yahweh replies that he is the God of the Patriarchs - Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob -[12] and that he is Yahweh.[13] The text derives Yahweh (&#1497;&#1492;&#1 493;&#1492;) from the Hebrew word hayah (&#1488;&#1492;&#1 497;&#1492;), meaning he who is he, or I am that I am;[11] the Kabbalah takes this to mean that Yahweh himself is equal to his name.

I think you are digging a put for yourself here.

Spiritually minded people are going to find the scriptures abundantly profitable. Its as simple as that.

Those who aren't spiritually minded but use the scriptures, may(or may not) come to understand much. And scriptures can and often begin the process of having a personal relationship with God, if they are searchers for Truth.

This makes scripture sufficient.

We must remember ignorance of scripture is ignorance of Christ.(St. Jerome).

Don't need 27 books to know every thing the Bible teaches about Mary the mother of Jesus. The Scripture that teaches about her, using her name, are in the gospels, Acts, and Romans....

Hi, Aretha 123, I thought you'd like it!
Yes, that's what I said, it didn't change. We were taught that the Blessed Mother died. We're well aware that at times there's a difference in theology between Catholic and Orthodox teaching on the same dogma, but usually not quite as different as you like to make out. I've also seen plenty of misinformation about Catholic teaching on Orthodox sites. It's a shame. The Orthodox I've known in the past were not haters, but then there are some in every group. I think you had a run in with a group of Catholics who wouldn't touch the Orthodox with a ten-foot pole. We do consider you schismatics, you broke from the Church, not the other way around, but some people take it too far and seethe with hatred. What a pity, huh?
I don't hate the Catholic Church. I have been honest about how I see almost all the Catholics posting here v Catholicism and the Church. Also when I see something inaccurate said about the Orthodox Church or beliefs I will post. If I say something about Catholicism I try to accurate and put time in reading. Or if I have read something that contradicts what was aid I usually will make a comment. I would agree wholeheartedly that I am much more accepting of the Born Agains, Protestants, Evangelists, Nondenominationals, Pentecostals here and I know that is upsetting to those who then think I am not defending the Theotokos or Baptism or the Eucharist. I know most would not understand but that is actually rock hard strength in my beliefs because I can listen and engage without having to attack, which never works. All this screaming back and forth and no one here has ever changed their position.I also have said that I respect Anthony and some of the newer Caths and I think one older Cath here (cant think of their names)I don't see my changing my perception of other Caths.
Pentecostals here
