What IS sad is that all of you right-fighters are so stupid as to fight over who tells the biggest lie.
I asked several times if you believe that Jesus baptized others into the Christian (Catholic) faith, and you all ignore the question ... because you know that a Jew would no more be baptized by a Catholic named John the Baptist than the pope would be baptized into Protestantism by a Protestant!
YOU KNOW THAT and yet you ignore that fact.
If Jesus had lived he would have been a faithful Jew to the end of his life and on into his resurrection. The word Catholic or Christian would not have entered his "mind."
And here you are ... like naughty children wanting your own way, insinuating that a Jew was not only baptized by a Catholic named John the Baptist who travelled from the old testament as Jew and landed in the new testament as a Catholic, to in turn baptize others as Catholics.
Surely you aren't so stupid as to believe you will rewarded for lies.
I HOPE NOT!!!
Your presentment of John the Baptist as a Catholic isn't actually a "fact", so I ignored it.

...and you wouldn'tbe able to do this, if YOU hadn't made a conscious choice to follow Jesus.
But you can't see this depth of your thinking, because you seem to enthralled with giving others credit for what you believe.
Maybe if you would accept all of what Jesus taught, you wouldn't be so brash to others with what you think you know and what you don't know.
Why do you follow men?

Okay - please put these teachings into "first" witht he others you claim are important.

Until then, you are only saying things that aren't completely true.
<quoted text>
Incorrect conclusion. I've accept Jesus in many more ways than you have.
Care to restate your stance - but this time, with more honesty?
<quoted text>
Ah-ha - another definition of a "Christian".
If you truly believe in this "24/7 belief of Jesus", then why do you reject many gospels and other written teachings by Jesus?
Maybe it is you who needs to rethink what they believe about Jesus, instead of implying others aren't believing at all.
Hmmmm.....sounds like you have some homework to do.

Again, there's nothing definitive concerning the disposition of unbaptized infants. Limbo was a theological construct to attempt to explain a state not subject to any punishments of Hell, yet lacking the perfect joy of being with God in Heaven.
It is possible that these souls are indeed in Heaven, as God shows them His mercy.

Although I'm not Catholic myself, I've known quite a few Catholics. Never yet seen or heard one worshiping a cross or a statue or a painting or anything meant to resemble the illusion they have as to how God looks.
I'm kind of tired of Catholic-bashing too. There are legitimate differences between Protestants and Catholics, but to say they are "deluded" or "of the devil" is misguided at best.

Had Jesus lived he would have been faithful to Judaism ... period.

Observe the lies ... let them sink in to your brains and you will see. Jesus would not have supported any form of Christianity OR Islam.

Christianity is based on nothing but lies, and that means that when you put words into an image of a dead Jew and pretend he is Christian or supports Christianity ... you are ALL LIARS.

You are "framing" a Jew to be a traitor to his own Judaism. And THAT is not honest. Not ONE BIT HONEST!!!

I've been splittinghairs since I arrived, and now you want to.

Let's make sure we get the split correctly.

Why don't you believe in all of what Jesus taught?

Why do you follow men?

Why do you think less than six of the original 13 Apostles were more enlightened that the others?

Why do you accept those writings only?

How is it that "Paul" receives more credit for his teachings than Jesus does?

Let's split the hairs on these....okay?

What you should be discussing is not whether Jesus baptized Christians with fire or with water or other stupid nonsense ... but whether Jesus (had he lived) would have supported a new religion other than Judaism.

And you KNOW the answer to that question. He would have died on the supposed cross SHOUTING "I've been faithful to my one and only Jewish god, and let no man say otherwise as he will be LYING!!!"

Just thank the Lord, Old G and Preston didn't introduce us to Christianity. These guys are modern day Scribes and Pharisees. They are too filled with pride to see outside of their man-made religion.
I also believe they undid too many teachings from Jesus Christ to be considered Christian anymore.
Baptism, Confession, Holy Eucharist, Faith + works, Adding scripture alone... its never ending with each passing generation.
both Oxbore and myself have showed that DAN lied about mary in which she was never said to be "full of grace" as those words are only used twic and never in context with mary.

so it is better that you learn from MODERN DAY SCRIBES and never learn the truth at all from your irreligious system.

please dopnt think that you are right b ecause you beleive the lies that you are told. some day, God is going to hold your chruch accountable and then death and destruction will follow and people like you will b e destroyed in your tracks.

Do you honestly think that Our Lord would let the devil prevail with regard to innocent souls.
That they coukd be anywhere but in His loving arms.
Since they were never BORN coukd He have them in stasis to be born somewhere else??
Or in a limbo where He is not.
Instead of waiting for the answers, I would suggest for you to go out and find them for yourself, because the responses you get from others who are bias in their belief, will NOT give you an honest answer.

Catholics praised those who died as martyrs for the Catholic church. Century after century they canonized them as saints.

They never canonized Jesus the Jew as a Catholic saint and my guess is, they were scared to go THAT far with their flamboyant words, as being superstition they probably believed that if he was real at all, he would put a curse on them for telling such a whopper of a lie.

Yet they were cunning enough to USE the image of that JEW to start a new religion.

Isn't it odd that they called all the others saints, but they never used the term Saint-Jesus, and yet he was supposedly the most important player in the whole GAME concerning the new "Christian" religion.

We've definitely proved you in error these last three yrs. Just because you're to stubborn to admit your error doesn't change the fact. Most onlookers would have converted to Catholicism a long time ago after reading the debates between you, Preston, Old Gee and the Catholics. In fact, I believe you three do more to HELP the Catholic Church than anything.
You can't believe you are right based on this following typical exchange:
Catholics:'Prove that Christ taught sola scripture as the authority on His Ministry'
Confrint:'all scripture is God breathed, and is useful for teaching'
You lost, Confrint. 2tim 3:16 does not say what well claim it says. Therefore your ENTIRE opinion on sacred scripture falls apart because you based it off a lie to start with.

**********

Catholics have proved nothing of the sort. Scripture IS God-breathed.
You haven't converted anyone on here.

You can insist that some early 'fathers' may have written some stuff, but accepting that as gospel would be something like accepting everything written on this forum as gospel.

It must agree with what IS written...and all of it does not.

Baptism, confirmation, and the Eucharist are celebrated as one sacrament by the Early Christians, and today the Eastern Catholics still follow this.
The Catholics in the West, however, separated the sacraments of baptism and confirmation because there were not enough bishops to give out all the sacraments. In the West, the priest baptizes and the bishop confers the sacrament of confirmation. In all three - Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist, the Holy Spirit is present.
Ok well Western Confirmation is more similar to what non Catholics do at BAPTISM

The recipient is able to say words of belief. As opposed to being baptized as an infant.

Does the Church still teach as they definitely used to that baby baptism washes away original sin..as in what we have from Adam And Eve.

Or does it wash away all sin..

Outstanding.
As if Mary could look into the mind of the "town gossip".
Please, KM.

Jesus was a grown man...not a 'kid'.

Mary should NOT have worried about the 'town gossip'. That is not finding fault...simply saying that if she was perfect, she would have known that THEY were wrong.

Not likely. Having been a Catholic, you get right into the discussions about what Jesus said and did, and your lies are as noted as the lies of others, who still continue to try in VAIN to make a faithful Jew into a traitor of his own religion.

Had he and his Jewish father been real, you people would all be cursed, and my guess is you would have nothing for a reward in any hereafter, even if a hereafter just happens to be the case.

For such lies, none of you deserve rewards.

That is my opinion.

And when you know better and you don't do better ... the onus is on you.

Had Jesus lived, he would NOT have supported the starting up of Christianity OR Islam. He would NOT have baptized any human on earth as a Christian. He would not have counseled Peter to become a Catholic pope, or to start a new Christian community.

You KNOW that is true!!!

You know it and I know it.

Luke 1:28.
She is called "full of grace".
She's given the name "full of grace" and in the Greek perfect tense, indicating that this permanent state of Mary was completed.
Remember Greek? You were very insistent on it RE: 2 Tim 3:16.
'St. Luke uses the perfect passive participle, kekaritomene, as his "name" for Mary. This word literally means "she who has been graced" in a completed sense. This verbal adjective, "graced," is not just describing a simple past action. Greek has another tense for that. The perfect tense is used to indicate that an action has been completed in the past resulting in a present state of being. "Full of grace" is Mary’s name. So what does it tell us about Mary? Well, the average Christian is not completed in grace and in a permanent sense (see Phil. 3:8-12). But according to the angel, Mary is.'
http://www.catholic.com/magazine/articles/hai...
**********
Neither verse calls Mary 'full of grace'.
KM
kekaritomene in its fullest and best translation means "highly favored", nothing else can be added to that.

Yes, the people of Antioch were the first to be called Christians. That is in the Bible. And the Bishop of Antioch (Ignatius) was the first person to use the word "Catholic". That is found in a first century historical document. So, history and archaeology is on our side.
perhaps your words are factual, however that doesnt mean they go together. many of us on here certainly dont beleive that roman catholics are Christians.

and your actions and the lies told on here are not indictive of a Christlike lifestyle
