Silly people!
One minute you preach that god knows what's best, and the next minute you believe you have to pray so that he does from your opinions what YOU believe is best.

Hermi, I truly don't understand why you would post a protestant website which uses the term "apocrypha" and denies the canonicity of the Septuagint in direct contradiction to Orthodox teaching.
It's common sense that what was compiled in the new testament was accepted by the Catholics who had full power over all other religions in that era.

Had it not been so, they would have trashed the book and started anew.

<quoted text>The Bible is NOT a catholic book...Your church began in 1054 remember....
The Church began at Pentecost in Acts 2:4 and it was Catholic!

The Church did not exist in Old Testament times but was constituted on the Day of Pentecost (arguments to support the day of Pentecost will be given below). It is distinct to this present time period. Several lines of evidence support this conclusion.
(1) Our Lord said:“I will build My Church”(Matt. 16:18). He did not say that He would continue to add to something already in existence, but that He would do something not yet begun.
(2) The Church could have no functioning Head until after the resurrection of Christ; therefore, it could not exist until some time after He rose from the dead (Eph. 1:20-23—note how these verses connect His resurrection, ascension, and session to His headship over the church).
(3) The Church could not have been an operating entity with functioning spiritual gifts until after Christ’s ascension. This is the clear implication of Eph. 4:7-12.
By a comparison of a number of passages, it seems clear that Pentecost marked the beginning of the church as a functioning body (the body of Christ) by the outpouring of the Spirit on that day.:

The Church is referred to as the "Catholic Church" as early as 55 A.D

According to the four Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles, about the year 33 C.E., the structure of the Church was set up by Jesus Christ before His Ascension and then the early Christian Church was born on Pentecost when the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles and disciples.

This same Church has referred to itself as the “Catholic Church” at least since 55 AD.(about 10 years after the last book of the New Testament was written), when the Greek term "Katholikos" (meaning universal) appears in the Letter of St. Ignatius of Antioch to the Smyrnaeans:

"Wherever the bishop appear, there let the multitude be; even as wherever Christ Jesus is, there is the Catholic Church." The Apostles of Jesus, and especially in Paul's writings refers to a hierarchical, authoritative, visible Church in the book of Acts with bishops, priests, elders and deacons. Paul also (in I Timothy 3:15) calls the Church, the pillar, pinnacle and foundation of the truth!! In 1054, the Orthodox Church divided, split and broke away from the Catholic Church. The Church that is described in Matthew 16:13-21 was (Universal--Catholic)!!

The reason there are so many Catholics on planet earth is not because they taught truth, but rather because they forced others to join their religion way back when. The choice was to join or be tortured and put to death.

The numbers didn't become high by honest means. Not even close.

You and mojo should team up. The only thing he can say in defense of Rome is, "there are 38,000, 40,000, 42,000 denominations". LOL LOL Hey cly, list these denominations or shut your pie hole. I will wait(but not hold my breath)for your reply. Get with mojo. He can be your resource for excess BOLOGNA. LOL
Since the Protestant reformation in the 16th century, there has been an on-going of dividing, fracturing, and splintering of one denomination after another, who "have never", NOR "will ever"agree on (anything) regarding the (true authenticated and proven) interpretation of the bible handed down by the Early Church Fathers in 382,393 and 397 AD.--Here is a partial list of the 42,000+ conflicting , inconsistent and contradicting "hodge-podge" of "personal opinionated" denominations since the beginning of the Reformation: 1..Luther (eliminated some original books of the bible)
2.Zwingli (eliminated and rejected the Eucharist)
3.Knox (threw out some of the Sacraments)
4.Wesley (each one rejected something to start a new denomination

I don't agree with Woody Allen. I believe if there is a god, the god is the ONLY source of evil. After all, the devil would be deader than a rat if the all-powerful god didn't approve of evil.

Theology is silly.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>

"If it turns out that there is a God, I don't think that he's evil. But the worst that you can say about him is that basically he's an underachiever."

I don't believe in life after death, but I'd like to believe in life before death. I'd like to think that one of these days we'll leave superstition and delusional thinking and Jerry Falwell behind. Scientists would like that, too. But for now, they like their grants even more."

Temper tantrums won't excuse your lies.

I don't belittle the Catholic religion any more than I belittle all other religions and you know it.

I don't play favorites with religion as I have no favorites.

Playing favorites is YOUR game.

The bible clearly indicates St. Joseph is not Jesus's father in the biological sense. It makes no such implication regarding the Blessed Virgin's motherhood of Jesus.

Your intense hatred of the Catholic Church is clouding your senses Preston.

Well, yes, we rejected many "gospels". And protestants accepted our decision, although they now deny it.

Scientists that have personal wealth don't need government grants, so they are free to express their opinions that a god does not fit into their scientific opinions.

Scientists that work in the vatican or those that depend on government grants must behave as "expected."

We all know that a "scientist" in the vatican dare not entertain or voice the idea that maybe the universe was not created.

We comprehend that the supposed scientist would be out on his butt post haste as the pope NEEDS his god to support his AIMS.

There is ONLY one TRUTH and it is in Jesus Christ, as it has, is and will continue to be (from over 2000 years), been grounded in Jesus' One True Apostolic Catholic Church...... and not in 42,000+ bible only Protestant "relative-editorialized truths" in which each individual (bible only)(personal opinion) is the final authority!!

The idea that you believe a Jew would willingly support Catholicism bespeaks of your ability to use "reason."

It makes as much sense that your pope would willingly become a Protestant as it does that a faithful Jewish rabbi would support Catholicism.

Such idiocy!
