You stated that the saints WERE removed from the Catholic Universal calendar. Did the devil remove them, or were they removed with the approval of popes. And if they were removed, that is a show of horrible disrespect if the popes didn't actually believe they were nonexistent to begin with.
I suggest you are being very silly ... just to try to prove you are right.
Just as I thought, you can't produce any documented evidence that any Pope removed a saint from the Universal Calendar because they thought they were nonexistent.

All you can do is promulgate silly theories in lieu thereof and call me names...just to try to prove you are right.

Thanks!! Glad to have had the opportunity to set the record straight about the Saints! St. Christopher, pray for us!

The Bible says..

Tit 3:11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
Yep. If someone doesn't buy your bullshit after two attempts then they are far to wise to join your cult.

"Whatever happened to St. Christopher? Is he still a saint?"
Before the 1969 reform of the Roman calendar, Christopher was listed as a martyr who died under Decius. Nothing else is known about him.

Was St. Christopher Real?

I’m glad you asked this question, because EVEN MANY PRIESTS AND RELIGIOUS EDUCATORS DON'T KNOW THE CORRECT ANSWER.****
St. Christopher is STILL a saint!!!
What happened in the 1960s was that the Church revised its universal calendar, the schedule of celebrations that are observed by the worldwide Church. Some saints’ days were removed, others added. This did not mean that those removed were no longer saints—only that the Church no longer celebrated their feast days everywhere. Individual communities and Catholics are still free to honor these saints and choose them as patrons. In fact, only a tiny percentage of canonized or recognized saints appear in the universal calendar. Many saints of religious orders are honored only within that order, for example.

You can be proud to have a powerful patron, intercessor, and namesake in St. Christopher. We know little about him historically—only that he died about A.D. 251—but that is also true of many early martyrs. We know they are in heaven, nonetheless.

Once again, thanks for the opportunity to correct you, June. It's always a pleasure!

Of course they created their own god, as did all myth-makers create their own gods and goddesses through the eons of time concerning religion.
Some certain Jews thought they were special and so they needed one god all their own. Previously Jews were polytheistic and believed in multiple gods.
You really need to be more objective concerning religion and as long as you stay PUT in Catholicism, you will subject your self only to what suits your Catholic lusts.
June:

My answer is in the form of a question:

If being a Christian is absolutely satisfying in all aspects, then why try to be objectively against it?

You are trying to make a false dilemma, but it seems more like a casual simplification....I am not quite sure. Good try.

So, if you only look objectively, the subjective is ignored. And vice versa. Ignoring the subjective is not being truthful or honest....

Fourth, "cherry-picking" you chop-up the scriptures, and leave off the context within which they are written. Thus, anyone, can interpret them, any way they desire.
Quoting Scripture from Ge to Rev that supports the same message is not cherry picking...it is the most basic of Bible Study practices..

Fifth, the way you ask the question, we return to the "ducks quack" issue. You conclude ducks don't quack because it is not written in scripture. Likewise, when you demand a yes or not answer from me, I can say the scriptures you use do not tell me ducks do or don't quack.
There is no ducks quake issue in: Why do you not answer my question???

There is no ducks issue in: Does the following verses teach that Christ is God??????

Your fifth reason also holds not water..

The reason you will not answer my questions is that you can see it will reveal the truth...and that you cannot accept...

You ARE of the world!!!
Your imagination can take you wherever you want it to take you, but when you come out of your state of hypnosis, you are still on earth as are all the rest of us animals.
June:

The flesh came first, and then the spirit. That is the nature of being a created "animal".

One cannot deny that they are born into the world, unless they are hypnotized.

If you are halfway between home and a destination, you can decide to go either way.

If you are both a creature in time and space, and have an eternal destination, then you can decide to go either way also. So choose to be a creature of time and space, and remain carnal, or a creature of eternal destination and become spiritual.

Do you think others animals ponder their own mortality?

Roll all you wish....

The Old Testament...

ISAIAH THE MESSIANIC PROPHET WROTE AN ALLEGORY ABOUT A TREE

Isa 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

Isa 53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

The New Testament THE APOSTLE PAUL... ALLUDES TO ISSIAH'S WRITINGS..

Rom 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel.

--->For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Rom 10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

Rom 10:19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.

Rom 10:20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.

Rom 10:21 But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.

The Psalmist David wrote about a TREE

Psa 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.


Psa 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

NOTE

===>Psa 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Psa 1:4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

Psa 1:5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

Psa 1:6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

IN ROMANS THE ALLEGORY CONTINUES

Rom 11:16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

Rom 11:17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

Rom 11:18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.

Rom 11:19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.
Rom 11:20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:

Rom 11:21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

So you think popes removed the saints from the calendar because they respected that the saints existed???

That would the same as removing the stories of Jesus from the bible ... because they respected that Jesus existed.

Because to be a died in the wool Christian is to believe that most of the "souls" in the world will go to hell ... while precious, special YOU will be rewarded with salvation and eternal bliss.

How many times do you need that explanation to understand that is WHY I never became a member of a Christian church of ANY flavor whatsoever?

The belief itself is horrible. If you don't see that, it's because you don't want to see it.

From the book “Weather Lore,” Reader’s Digest, Published 2007, comes the following…
Floods
Almost 5000 years ago, some scientists believe, a large asteroid or comet crashed into the Indian Ocean, producing a tsunami about 13 times as big as the one that inundated Southeast Asia in December 2004. That almost every culture throughout history has had a flood myth, of which Noah and the Ark is the most famous in the Western world, demonstrates the fear and awe that floods inspire in human consciousness.
"Almost 5000 years ago, some scientists believe..."

LOL - these proud-hearts will believe anything BUT the truth of the Bible, but they tweek it so that they can get their name on some 'new theory'!

hey June, if these "scientists" and drs and such told you to jump in a lake of fire, would you do it?

<quoted text>Why was Jesus called EMANUEL,God With us,in Lukes'Gospel?
Oxbow,I still do not know what kind of M a n,you are referring to Jesus,in that He was the Son of Man,yet the Son of God also.Manto men,is true,but the very fact that God in His Omnipotent power can take of His own Essence and beget a Son is something that requires some faith on our part,even if we do not have complete understanding.When we make that decision to see such things by faith,it is wonderful how the LORD responds with increasing our faith.Jesus is the Son of God,not just a man created to head a great cause for the glory of God,as no doubt many men in the Old Cevenant did.I am referring to Abraham,Isaac,Jacob,Moses,and the Prophets:Jeremeiah,Isaiah,Ezek iel and so on.
Jesus as a Man only would be limited to our humanity,of which has never seen God in His glory,yet Jesus was with the Father from the beginning,so He is a SON who knows His Father before all ages,NOT a Man only,but the glorious Second Person of the Godhead,He is the fulfillment of that Godhead bodily,yet He was total Man aswell,given all the frailties of our human existence.His suffering,and crucifixion was totally without restriction to his physical being,and He knew the abandonment of the Father,which was something we humans can barely fathom.
You have to be careful Oxbow you do not fall into the hands of a post-dated Arianism,which was refuted strongly by the early church.Saint Eusebius was known to have been a courageous debater against arianism,and he suffered for his stand.
We today not only have the Full Scriptures to define what the Godhead is,but we have also witnesses upon witnesses who have experienced the revelation of knowing that the Godhead is Father,Son and Holy Spirit,whether from a Catholic affiliation or Evangelical,and so on.Jesus is the Incarnate Son of God,by the Holy Spirit Mary received the Holy SEED,and through normal gestation and pregnancy,Jesus is God-Man.Son of God,Son of Man!It takes faith as well Oxbow,not human intellect totry and figure it out.
When you can answer my questions...get back to me....you will not...because you can see it will lead you to the truth which you cannot face...

Does the following verses teach that Christ is God??????


But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
Then, after speaking in many and varied ways through the prophets, "now at last in these days God has spoken to us in His Son":(Heb. 1:1-2).
For He sent His Son, the eternal Word, who enlightens all men, so that He might dwell among men and tell them of the innermost being of God (see John 1:1-18).
Jesus Christ, therefore, the Word made flesh, was sent as "a man to men." He "speaks the words of God" (John 3;34), and completes the work of salvation which His Father gave Him to do (see John 5:36; John 17:4)
And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

The supposed truth of your bible reflects back to you that YOU are loved by the one and only god that ever existed, and others are simply "out of luck."

The bible, as are all supposed ancient "holy" books, is a handy book for ultra-selfish humans.
