<quoted text>show us the verse and post the complete sentence in greek to prove your words.
as I have said, only two places in the NT are the words' full of grace" appearing and neither is in reference to mary.
and kecharitomene is not the phrase used referencing Steven and Jesus as I have told Dan on this forum. that word means highly favored and mary was, to be chosen to be used by God as a surrogate mother for Jesus is a tremendous blessing.
steven was "full of grace' on the day that he was stoned to death. but he was not a sinless person as Jesus Himself was and is.
steven was a sinner saved by Grace, like every Born Again Christian
John 1:14

And the Word was made flesh, and came to dwell among us; and we had sight of his glory, glory such as belongs to the Fatherís only-begotten Son, full of grace and truth.

The Christians that idolize word-images won't try to answer my questions.
In reference to Catholic theology ... why would Peter the first pope who supposedly followed the counsel of Jesus create a "Christian" community ... if Jesus was a faithful Jew to Judaism???
WHY???
This is where your thinking is in error - Jesus never taught Judaism, he only used it as a reference....and even then, only referred to parts of the OT/Torah.

Jesus, if you were to read all of his teachings, you will find that he teaches about the transcendence of the "Spirit".

Nothing more, and nothing less.

Per the Greek word that is translated into "grace"...
charis: graciousness (as gratifying), of manner or act (abstract or concrete; literal, figurative or spiritual; especially the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life; including gratitude):--acceptable, benefit, favour, gift, grace(- ious), joy, liberality, pleasure, thank(-s,-worthy).
Add the word "full" in front of any of these definitions...and you will see the truth that you cannot accept...
<quoted text>
This word, "kecharitomene" may be Greek but does not appear in any Bible I have ever read. Strong has no number for this word. This word only appears in what we call Roman Catholic bibles and was mis-translated from the Latin Vulgate.
The word used in REAL Christian Bibles is G5487 - CHARITOO, which when translated has these meanings.....
to make graceful, charming, lovely, agreeable, to peruse with grace, compass with favour, to honour with blessings
The word CHARITOO only appears in the Christian Bible in two places. This word applies to the expressions captialized and in parentheses.
Luke 1:28, "And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou (THAT ARE HIGHLY FAVOURED), the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women."
Ephesians 1:6, "To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein (HE HATH MADE) us accepted in the beloved."
If a Roman Catholic has issues they should locate a real Bible and read it. Not the Roman Catholic version of their so-called bible.
King James's guys translated right, but St. Jerome got it wrong. Gotcha.

Question: "Is the Bible truly God's Word?"
Answer: Our answer to this question will not only determine how we view the Bible and its importance to our lives, but also it will ultimately have an eternal impact on us. If the Bible is truly Godís Word, then we should cherish it, study it, obey it, and fully trust it. If the Bible is the Word of God, then to dismiss it is to dismiss God Himself.

John 3:5 relates Christ teaching the necessity of and matter of (water) Baptism.
Matthew 28 18:19(below) relates Christ teaching the Form of Baptism:
18 But Jesus came near and spoke to them; All authority in heaven and on earth, he said, has been given to me; 19 you, therefore, must go out, making disciples of all nations, and baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost,
All this is IN the Catholic Encyclopedia you excerpted. Very lazy, Ox.
Not lazy...can't find the Scripture you are quoting....

I am looking in: Baptism

One of the Seven Sacraments of the Christian Church; frequently called the "first sacrament", the "door of the sacraments", and the "door of the Church". The subject will be treated under the following headings:

The word sin came from archery and didn't have any association with evil and a devil until Christianity got a hold on that word to defame it.
Originally the word sin simply meant in archery to "miss the mark."
While you're Googling the etymology of "sin", work on the "Catholics wrote that John the Baptist was a Catholic" thing I asked for.

So Jehovah told you to preach your version of Christianity, and told you direct that he would save you for your efforts?
You are nuttier than a fruitcake.

He saved me first, then told me to preach HIS version of the Gospel. Salvation IS A GIFT.

Um, they get Confirmed. At age 13-14.

Maybe you'd best be silent, then.
Confirmation is not a choice. It has nothing to do with accountability, and the church decided the age.

JESUS SAID ...
Joh_14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
Joh_15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
~~~
Jesus did not deviate from the fathers commandments as Adam and eve did..
when the brought the curse of sin upon the earth...
The evangelical church has striven to keep God's commandments and take the Church back to it's original relationship with God, as it was in it inception...(it"s birth at Calvary's cross)
The Roman Catholics have chosen to keep God's commandments
if it fits
their ungodly agenda...and strengthens their assumed dominion
...as the one truly apostate religious system on earth..
It has it's own book called the Catechism..they Catacize converts
instead of buiding faith in Jesus that comes by hearing God's word.
Their dynasty in Rome is their first love....and Christ Jesus GOD ONLY SON
is
relegated some where in MIDST OF
their Lil gods such as Mary Joseph and patron
saints..ETC..
THE FORM OF GODLINESS RELIGIOUS RITUAL AND CALISTHENICS CANNOT BE FOUND
IN THE BIBLE...
SO THEY MAKE AN ALL OUT EFFORT TO DISCREDIT IT .
Their hope of eternal life with Christ as faithless as a game of bingo
If their number comes up they are saved...
Yet thy claim to be God's only true apostolic church...
Is it no a wonder that the earth is in the condition that it it is with
over 2 billion souls that have no certain hope of eternal life?
40,000 competing protestant denominations disagree as to what "take the Church back to it's original relationship with God, as it was in it inception..." means.

Your problem is you villify the witness of all those who were taught by the apostles and who were actually IN the Church after it's inception. I suggest you read what they said.

You don't find it slightly illogical that a benevolent deity would otherwise hold an infant accountable for "sins" when it has no concept of what that is, nor the consequences of it's actions, unless you sprinkle magic water on it's head?
For that matter, do you consider the idea of being held accountable for the actions of long dead ancestors "justice"?

WHERE DOES JESUS TEACH ..BEING CONFIRMED.?.

More similar to our baptism.
the ones getting confirmed speak fir themselves ..thing is its done at a certain
age..saying the words by rote ..and possibly boy by heart belief
Even if the confirmed have the best intention
You cannot be taught true burn again belief ..by my experience anyway

Its like confirming their baptism

I AM a seeker of truth. You, on the other hand claim you were called by a god of the Jews to preach your own version of Protestantism.
I want you to tell me exactly WHEN this god called you to his service.
That should not be too much to ask of such a proud servant of a god.
To claim yourself as a "seeker of truth", but in another breath consider yourself an "Atheist", I think you are confused.

If still a seeker of truth, and since you haven't found what is true and what is not, and only base your "conclusions" on subjective evidence, you really aren't an Atheist at all, but an Agnostic.

This is where the honesty begins, because I know you don't know any of these questions:

Where did we come from?
If we came from somewhere else or not, who created us?
Is there a "God"?
Is there a soul?
Did Jesus exist?

All of these questions are still unproven as I write.

What say you "Agnostic June"?

The Bible is one book, written by one author to one people. The Bible was written by God thru human hands to those born again.
To those not "born again" the following Bible verses apply. These are not my words but the Word of God. Amen.
I Corinthians 1:18, "For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."
II Corinthians 2:15, "For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing,"
II Corinthians 4:3, "And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing."
II Thessalonians 2:10, " and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved."
Book Chapter and verse that says the Bible is one Book.
Show us Book, chapter and verse that tells us which Books are Biblical?

Sounds like you're another Bible worshiper like Confrint and Preston.

Ironically, y'all been accusing us of idolatry for 3 yrs now and this whole time you were the guilty ones!

So baptism removes "original sin"? Really? If so, who do you keep on sinning after your baptism if the sin is removed?
The term ďoriginal sinĒ deals with Adamís sin of disobedience in eating from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and its effects upon the rest of the human race. Original sin can be defined as ďthat sin and its guilt that we all possess in Godís eyes as a direct result of Adamís sin in the Garden of Eden.Ē The doctrine of original sin focuses particularly on its effects on our nature and our standing before God, even before we are old enough to commit conscious sin.
Yeah, I know what Original Sin refers to.

"......its effects on our nature and our standing before God, even before we are old enough to commit conscious sin." is instructive as it explains why we Baptize infants instead of making them wait as you do, until they can perform an act to your congregation's satisfaction.

It's odd that this omnipotent deity can only seem to communicate with humans via Iron Age technology. You'd think that it could simply communicate with everyone directly. And yet everything is filtered through humans who purport to speak for it. Come to think of it, that's how most other religions work too.
