Wrong!! I don't have ANY hate for the faith of non-catholics. For those who respect our Catholic Faith, I will return that respect!!Jesus,died to save,us..we,MUST be born again .
Do this,in Remembrance of Me is a good thing .he,did NOT SAY ..or else you are not Saved .
But ..it's,not salvation ..he made FAITH very simple .
Some places,I'm betting have NO PRIEST ..what then ??
Your faith believes,only a,Priest can have us,partake in the,Lords,Supper ..
So these,folks,..who heard the message ..But have no priest . Cannot break bread in Remembrance ..cannot be saved ..
Don't get me wrong ..your Church worship a in the way it sees best ..many Catholics love,Jesus .
But your beliefs,on how important your Church and clergy are ..well it boggles,THE mind .
However ..there is,NO bigger advocate against something
Than a former participant .
See,I don't hate Catholicism ..I just don't believe
The way you all put s o much faith in the Religion.
You really have a hatred for the,Faith of Non CATHOLUCS And put our faith down at every turn
That's your right ..it's,your talking points,..
But din t scope t every one to buy it ..
For those who chose to attack our (historically and biblically TRUE) CATHOLIC CHRISTIAN FAITH (of which many bible only Protestants have come on this forum--"for that purpose only" they will "feel the heat" in return!!--The difference Rosesz is that you believe in a "bible only" religion that has ABSOLUTELY no basis of biblical or historical truth to back up ANYTHING that it teach. Sola Scriptura was never believed or taught by anyone until the 18th century. It is nothing more than an extension of the Reformation---a "man-made doctrine of belief"! And of course it is your personal decision to believe what you want! HOWEVER, Jesus Christ left HIS apostles,disciples and followers HIS CHURCH---not the bible! There was no "written word" (no bible) until over 350 years after the death of Christ. It was the Early Church Fathers who forme and complied the Canon of Scripture, from the letters, documents,and parchments from the Apostles in 382,393 and 397. The Church came first and then the bible!! If you really think that the bible is the only way for salvation, then what about the Christians, who for the 1st 1500 years--didn't have a bible. In I Timothy 3:15 Paul calls "THE CHURCH (not the bible alone) the pillar, pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH! He follows this up by saying, "if you have a question, conflict or disagreement, take it to the Church for clarification. Jesus established an "authority" for Christians, here on earth and that authority for TRUTH,is in and through HIS One True (Universal) Apostolic Catholic Church. Jesus Christ established an authority here on earth to preserve HIS revelation and decide the Bible Canon--and that authority is in Our Lords Holy Catholic Church. If you
disagree, then tell me what authority determined the Bible Canon!!!
