Doesn't have to be! All throughout Church History from the year 050AD, with Ignatius, EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE knows (without a doubt) that Paul was speaking of Jesus Christs One (and only one) Universal Church as being Catholic.
WRONG!!! catholic meaning UNIVERSAL...NOT the catholic church of today...the word catholic meaning only ONE UNIVERSAL CHURCH....if you drop the pride you will see it...

Do you believe like Preston that your bible is God in the form of paper and ink?

Silly. But His Word is still powerful when it is spoken. "Faith comes by HEARING, and HEARING COMES BY THE WORD OF GOD."

I'm quoting Preston's exact words. He said "the Word (bible) was God". Far more likely that he's worshipping paper and ink than we are icons and statues.

I agree with you Regina. I think you're telling the truth.
Although I admire the Orthodox faith and I think Herm and Sera are passionate Orthodox... I thought it was ' interesting' they'd bring up the abuse scandal- implying its not equally a problem in their religion as ours. I guess that was red flag that they may not be as interested in truth as we all hoped.
Clay The last many many posts were all on theology. I talked about abuse long ago in terms of the hierarchy needed to change, so why are you using that. I guess even theological, historical and philosophical arguments get met with "you don't want the truth"
" you are picking on the church" "you are prejudice". Regina by the way Thomas was opposite of apophatic. If you guys cant run legitimately with the big dogs, just be yourselves and speak from the heart.None of you have ventured far out of the Catholic bubble of info.

No, Thomas was not the opposite of apophatic. Not sure where you picked that up from, but it's incorrect.

From Question 3 of the Summa: Since we cannot know concerning God what He is, but what He is not, we cannot consider about God in what way He is, but rather in what way He is not. First therefor it is to be considered in what way He is not; secondly in what way He is known by us; thirdly, in what way He is named

St. Thomas's approach is therefore apophatic. But there is an element lost on those who overemphasize this. St. Thomas, following the Fathers, particularly St. John Damascene, lays out a threefold manner in which we speak of God and apply
words to Him.

The "big dogs"? LOl...okay, Herme, whatever you say.

Preston said his bible is God. I assume he worships it. That is certainly closer to idol worship than venerating an icon or statue.
**********

Do you mean that you would choose an icon or statue rather than the Bible???

I can easily prove my Diety exists. That's why I'm Christian. Grant it, I can't prove it in a science lab... but I can't prove love in a science lab either.
I can prove that you're an idiot for stressing about somethin that supposedly doesn't exist! You do really believe God doesn't exist... right?
You can not "prove" your deity exists, but you still boast about its attributes. That is the problem, and why I call you on it.
I do not believe "YOUR" deity exists. The evidence is unsurmountably against the supposition or posit.

You don't seem to be able to "prove" anything, That's why I don't believe anything you say.

When you people stop threatening me with the wrath of your invisible deity, I will stop calling you on it.

Just who the hell do you arrogant derps think you are that you can get away with such nonsense anyway?
If you threaten me with something(anything) you had damn well be able to PROVE it or I will drag you through the mud with your accusation.
Have your deity strike me dead this very minute if it has one ounce of actuality attached to it, or shut up with the accusations and inuendos.
I am sick and tired of you and others BS in this respect.

Face it Black dude, you guys offer equally bizarre scenarios on the origin of human beings. In fact, you guys basically deny the spirit and love as we believers understand it. To me, thats you failure.
Your reply is nothing more than deflection in answering the reality of the situation.
Grow up.
You are not talking to sunday school children here, we are rational adults. We will surely make fools of you if you proceed with such nonsensical rhetoric.
"Black dude"?
Are you attempting racial defamation with your slur?
It surely wouldn't surprise me any. Just look at your character and extremely limited capability of rational thinking.
You are dispicable

In Orthodox theology, apophatic theology is taught as superior to cataphatic theology. While Aquinas felt positive and negative theology should be seen as dialetical correctives to each other, like thesis and antithesis producing a synthesis, Lossky argues, based on his reading of Dionysius and Maximus Confessor, that positive theology is always inferior to negative theology, a step along the way to the superior knowledge attained by negation.This is expressed in the idea that mysticism is the expression of dogmatic theology par excellence.

Catholicism was/is apophatic? LOL You missed a whole movement of the Cath Church that in the end failed called Scholasticism.

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.
Ignatius did not use the words Roman Catholic. He may have used the word.....catholic.....universa l. But never Roman Catholic. NEVER!

You have history and archaeology on your side? Really? Real Christians trust the Bible. Real Christians not Roman Catholics. Do you understand FINALLY!
