June you are so off the mark, and so much in denial that you can't hear or see the truth, nor do you want to that is a fact.
Bitterness does that to people.
'GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON TO DIE FOR THE SINS OF THE WORLD. people keep posting that one verse but we must read on to get the whole truth.
John 3:16 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
If you do not believe in God, you have tied His hands.
Without faith you will never please God.
And God will not move where there is no faith.
God didn't shut you out you shut God out.
Now your crying and want Him to do something.
You have not because you ask not, because if you asked it would be,
turning to God in faith believing in Him to move in your life and knocking down those walls rebellion.
You don't want to give God the satisfaction, what it really comes down to is your pride.
'REMEMBER PRIDE BEFORE A FALL, THE REASON SATAN WAS BOOTED OUT OF HEAVEN PRIDE SILLY STUPID PRIDE.
THIS IS WHO YOU SHOULD BE MAD AT.
Isaiah 14. 12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
Your theology IS ... "GOD loves only those in my religion, and I love him because he reserved all his love for ME.

And ... to hell with others!!!"

<quoted text>Hey Clay, the catholic church is closing a church in the next town over were our friend goes and she and the members in that church are pretty upset about it.
And those who are assured GOD loves only them enjoy rubbing salt in the wounds of those they are assured that GOD doesn't love.

How can we tell that YOU are Protestant?

Poor Detroit ...

What's the use of having all that money in Rome if nit to support the poor CHURCHES.

But one church is in prime development areas ..worth lots to the Dioceses .

According to your theology Jesus loved his father who reserved hell for misfits.

You don't seem to have any problem whatsoever following that same concept.

Well I would be upset too. It sucks that the Church has to close. But there aren't enough Priests right now in some cases. The fact is, you do not know why they are closing that particular Church. You're only speculating.
They are closing because the membership is way down and they can not afford to keep it open so they are merging this church with another Catholic Church.My friend is upset because this is a church she has been going to all her life and the other church is further away.

You and the rest of your Roman Catholic cronies are nothing more than a sanctimonious self-centered self-serving southbound end of a northbound horse. What comes out of the horse has far greater value than what spews out of your mouth. You and your kind would not know Jesus if he fell on you. You think He is a cracker!!!! Go back to your statue and mary worship and quit interrupting the REAL Christians on this forum with your mumbo jumbo.
Amen!!!

Within the Catholic theology Jesus "couldn't" run away. His father sent him to save only those who were Catholic.

The Catholics wrote it in the new testament and stated that the whole book was based on truth.

The faithful Jews are still waiting for the "messiah" to come for the first time, as THEY believe that Jesus was not the real messiah.

Even though you find it especially pleasing to your selfish desires, your Protestant theology is not the only theology on earth.

If all the icons for you were positive, would the people posting icons still bother you???

I understand that when people disagree with what I post, they will slam the post with negative icons.

I'm just pleased that they are reading my posts that in turn irritate them, because maybe my words will plant a seed in their brains that theologians lied to them in order to attain a following.

There is one original and it's Catholic. Then came the Gnostics and countless other protestors.

The Catholics were the first to come up with the word Christian and the Jesus myth.

Ignatius was Catholic.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>

An important milestone into development of Christian self-consciousness or Christian self-identity will be the emergence of the word "Christianity." This word appears for the first time in the writings of a church thinker of the early 2nd century of our era named Ignatius, who lived in Western Asia Minor, modern day Western Turkey

How the Jesus Myth was created

This Awareness indicates that even the New Testament is assembled from patterns related to stories taken from earlier sources, such as Zoroastrian, Mithrain, Krishna, Buddhism, and Egyptian, and others, in which many verses are literally paraphrasing earlier writings, and many of the stories attributed to the story of Jesus, were lifted directly out of these other writings. The story of Jesus at the well, as one which was taken from earlier writings. This Awareness indicates that it is of importance that entities realize the origins of the Bible did not come from the pen of God, but came from the earlier writings in different cultures and nations at the time these Hebrew priests put this work together. This Awareness indicates that these countries who were plagiarized then became labeled as heathen,- nations whose philosophies were heathenistic, but this was only after their stories had been stolen.

OH STOP IT!!!

Do YOU hate Muslims and Hindus because they don't belong to your system of belief???

Don't be so silly.

If you were raised as a Muslim, you would RIGHT NOW be preaching Islam.

Well my point was..why have a rich Rome at your head ..if not yo help out the,faithful .

I'm sure there are still special collections that go right to the VATICAN.

And the CC is rich ...at its head ..km sure that is,NOT how Christ envisioned it.

Our church herd fell on really hard times.
We met in the meeting hall And rented the Church
A los supported and housed a Haitian church .

Got merged with a home CHURCH later ..to make badly needed repairs .

If you love your congregation..You do what is needed

All the riches and money will.mean nothing when Jesus comes

If they lose souls ..I pray that won't happen..And I believe
If the souls have truly been saved ..they cannot be lost .

But what of those who because the Churches closed to make
up for lost Diocese money ...eh o now can't go go confession

Or take the Eucharist ..

Just wondering what the CC theology is in that .
