Yes!! There is ONLY ONE TRUTH!
Why were there three popes trying to rule at the same time, if a god was supporting the dogma of only one pope?

Greed was their aim.

Yes!! There is ONLY ONE TRUTH! Not 42,000+ personal opinionated PROTESTANT "relative truths" (what each person decides for themselves is the truth).
That's what the born-agains say.

You have much in common. Both full of...... truth :o)

It's impossible for people to agree on the meanings of words, as the people take their own meanings from the words.

That is why Catholics don't even agree with other Catholics and likewise Protestants don't agree with other Protestants on the meanings of the words.

Yet they all read the same words from the same book.

When you people stop fooling your selves, you will stop trying to fool others.

I have NEVER said Catholicism is superior and have NEVER said it was perfect! What I did say is that it is the ONE and ONLY Christian Faith and Church that possesses the FULLNESS of the FAITH and the FULLNESS of the TRUTH.... Jesus initiated and established HIS ONE TRUE CHURCH--to save sinners, of which we all are!!!!
OK, the Catholic church is no better or worse in God's eyes than any other denomination, right?

I see how you have been posting that point over and over.

You are so honest with yourself!

Your religion has morphed you into a very dishonest person ... who claims to KNOW the one and only truth.
All religion was and is theory.
Not theory, faith.

There is a difference. Please look it up.

The bain of religion is how some confuse the two.

Note the word "destruction" and then you will understand that the job of the theologians was to terrorize followers.

They taught you that only through their ability to know what the gods expected from you were they allowed to give you insight into how your sins would be forgiven BY the god.

Instilling fear in you was ALL a scheme to control you.

If there is one god (according to Catholic and Protestant and Muslim theologians) is his name still Jehovah ... or did somebody change it when he wasn't "looking?"

So now that you are a Catholic you believe that a god favors you above all others on earth.
That is what the Catholic theologians HOPED you would believe.
I seriously wonder if you read peoples posts before you type. How else could you believe this man is a Catholic?

“This is partly based on my own theological understanding of how I believe the Church in its wholeness should be conceived as One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic, encompassing different traditions rather than as a series of squabbling fiefdoms each imagining that it possesses the totality of what the true Church is."

I wonder what so many here find so troubling about that statement?

You still don't know the difference between faith and theory.

You really should study the difference. It might open your mind.

Then you wouldn't be like most of the "I know the truth" crowd of which you are a part.

"I do believe the Roman Catholic Church was started by god, but its the god of this world, Satan"
With a statement like that, it doesn't sound like you fully converted yet. Satan is no god. There is only one God.
And I'm sorry you let slander, propaganda and deception shape you view of the Catholic Church. I'm certain that any serious Christian would join the Catholic Church if they could see the truth. The truth of course, destroys Protestantism and folks like you could never stomach being wrong about the Bible.
Peace
I'm sorry clay, but I'm not a protestant .
I am a born again christian though. Plus it was the catholic teaching that made me come to my conclusion.
the rcc, puts people "mostly lost " into bondage, with vain repetitious prayers, and rituals tha are worthless. One "man " forgiving another man, mary worshipping, prayers for the dead, and most of all taking the only name given, by where we must be saved, and turning it into a vanilla wafer.

That's the biggest scam going. It saddens me to know so many who are caught up into the demonic driven deal. Plus satan is a god "little g " of this world, but you're right about one thing, there is only one God "big G "
Peace.

I noticed that after I posted it, but then I thought "Catholics and Protestants are both the same, as they both believe that a god lives to lavish love on only their own cults.

Ox, please, enough is enough. This isn't a game. Just believe whatever you want. At this point, nothing will sway anybody here.. All you guys are staunch sola scripturist. That is the theory you're going "all in" with. It doesn't matter I guess, that you all come to different truths based on scripture.. In the end, we all stand before God and we will be judged accordingly.
For once you are right. This is not a game. My question has nothing to do with being a staunch solo scripto (new word)...it has nothing to do with theory.

It has to do with you not answering my question..Which was/is "Why are you not answering? It will reveal the truth.... Something that catlicks avoid like he plague...

Your denomination teaches Christ is the incarnate Son of God...the redeemer of the human Race...why do you not believe what your vatacan teaches????

God Bless you great testimony. Thank you for sharing it.
Thanks for your response. I've not really given my testimony yet, but only trying to show that God is real. As you already know, it's up to others to decide.

I realize, that I offend many, and that's ok.
The truth is the truth.

I don't believe I'm on the path to Heaven, I believe I'm going to Heaven. I'm already there according to God :)

I believe once a person has "truly "been born again that they are forever sealed in the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I would even say 90% of "christians " don't understand this, and continue to try and earn grace, or put others under bondage.

My soul is saved and sealed. My flesh is just as filthy as it was the momment before I met this God. There will come a day when even it will be put right, but that will also be a work of God, and not of man.

I've not read many post, but glad to meet you.

I cannot respond Sun night -Fri night, for a few weeks due to my job, and being inside a secure location, where no electonics are allowed. Atleast not for me, but the prisoners have plenty of access.:)

The world we live in. Lol
Nice to meet you.

It's ok June. I made a mistake myself back in. 1989, when I said that instead of this. Lol

I am neither of what you've listed. I am a child of God.
awaken by this God.
Saved by this God.
sealed by this God.

It's not becouse I'm good,becouse I'm not. It's becouse He is good.:)

Most religion is NOT based on truth, but lies. Most "christian " religions, turn truth into a lie.

What theory do you put your faith and trust in, if you don't mind me asking?
Evolution? Not micro, but the kind that says rocks and slim and lots and lots of time, and here we are kind of evolution, which seems would take even waaay more faith to me.

Just know sitting inside any "church "makes one a child of God, like sitting in a garage makes one a car :)
