I'm puzzled. I get that way sometimes when I meditate on Gods word.
In the Bible Christ told a man whom He had healed of his infirmities to go and sin no more. I'm puzzled as to why Christ would tell someone to sin no more knowing full well that everyone that is in these flesh bodies eventually will sin again.
Scripture even tells us that if we say we don't sin then we are lying.
Why would Christ tell a man to do somethign that He knows full well a mortal is incapable of doing? I'm puzzled.
perhaps Tony, Jesus knew his heart and maybe this man had a sin in his life that only Jesus knew about and for that reason, He spoke those words.

after all, it is difficult, very, for a man that cant get around to do very much wrong to anyone.

Praise be to the only name given where by we must be saved, Christ Jesus :)
The fundamental Christian starts off with a false premise. They believe a group of Christians first read the Bible, then formed a church based on those set writings from the Apostles. This group saw Matthew 16:18 and supposedly decided to make Peter the first Pope and so on and so on. That's your scenario on the inception of the Catholic Church. The truth is the truth. First came the Catholic Church, then came the Bible. The Church was in place even before the Jews decided on an official Jewish canon of scripture.
The Christian canon was stamped in the 4th century at the council of hippo. This fact destroys sola scripture and sends fundamentalism in another tailspin. The fundie does the only thing they can do when presented with truth. Ignore it. Pretend Jesus commanded you to privately interpret scripture in order to figure out His Ministry.

Regardless, we should all pray for peace in the Holy Land this Saturday at the urging of Pope Francis.

None of the Catholics answered me when I asked why Catholicism needs to have Mary remain avirgin even after she gave birth to Christ? She would never get to enjoy the gift of pleasure of sex and it seems that that would be unfair for God to force Joseph to take her to wife and then never allow Joseph to render """due benevolence""" to Mary either.
Now why does the RCC need for them both,Mary and Joseph to remain sexless with each other?

Why make a tabloid subject OUT OF MARY THE MOTHER OF JESUS...

WHY FOLLOW THE SAME PASTTERN OF the dirty minded old men that the Roman Catholics have followed in exploiting the intimate life of Mary the Mother of Jesus...and her husband...

I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND...

HOW THAT DRAGGING MARY (the mother of Jesus )THROUGH TABLOID

EXPLOITATION of her sexual behavior CAN BE EDIFYING...it appears to be diametrically apposed to respect or reverence.

WHY DRAG HER THROUGH THE FILTH OF YOUR CARNAL MIND?

Would you like the world to exploit your personal intimate behavior?

WOULD YOU APPRECIATE IT AND DEEM IT TO BE AND ACT OF LOVE, and REVERENCE?

WHILE PRESENTING SUPPOSED LIKENESSES OF HER SACRED HEART...WITH ICONS

THEY REVEL IN THE DISCUSSION HER SEXUAL BEHAVIOR AS IF SHE WAS A COMMON PROSTITUTE..

"without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.""
Jesus's sacrifice on the cross is what made baptism salvific. If the cross took care of everything, everyone would automatically be saved the minute they're born.
When we read the story of Abraham and Isaac in Genesis 22, what happens? Genesis 22:11-13, 11 "But the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said,“Abraham, Abraham!” And he said,“Here I am.” 12 He said,“Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him, for now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me.” 13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him was a ram, caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son."

God intervenes and Isaac is spared. But God did not intervene when His only Son was on the altar called the cross dying for you and me. Why? God loved us so much He gave His only Son for us and in Hebrews 9:22 God tells us why His Son had to die. Hebrews 9:22, "Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins."

Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."

The greatest exchange in human history took place at the cross. Jesus took our place. He paid a price we could not pay. Sin had separated us from God. Our only way back to God required a perfect sacrifice. Jesus Christ, a perfect lamb without blemish or defect paid in full the sin debt we owed to God by dying on the cross. His blood is the only bridge we can cross that will finally end this separation.

Our response.....

Romans 10:9-10, 9 "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved."

1. If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord
2. And believe in your heart God raised him from the dead
3. YOU WILL BE SAVED.
4. For it is believing in your heart that you are made right with
God
5. And it is confessing with your mouth

The rcc doesn't *need* Mary to be ever virgin. But since she was, we are required to accept it.
And its not just the rcc who believes it. Its all of Christendom- including the first generation of protesters. The last couple hundred yrs saw many strange doctrines introduced by the fundies because they thought every little sentence of our Bible was to be taken as the only deposit of the Christian faith... and their private interpretations were the will of God.
What a disaster!

God did not call Joseph to be her husband so they could enjoy the 'pleasures of sex' like your homosexual community understands sex. Josephs calling was a chaste and Holy calling. He had to protect the most Holy ark that bore forth the word of God made flesh. Its unthinkable that a devout Jew like Joseph, would consider it ok to have sex with this ark, when his ancestors were dropped dead for touching another ark that brought forth the word of God.

The word "Christ" stems from Judaism. The word "Jesus" stems from Catholicism.

I suggest that the ex-Jew Catholics jumped the Jewish gun and wrote an unnecessary new testament that Jesus was the new messiah. The faithful Jews did NOT agree. The Catholics were interlopers that morphed Judaism off into Catholicism in ORDER to do away with Judaism as truth and claim that Catholicism was the new truth brought to earth by the supposed Catholic supporter ... Jewish Jesus.

Question: Why do some Jews not eat fish with meat, or fish with dairy?

Rabbi Ari Enkin

********

Although modern-day medicine and science may beg to differ, the sages of the Talmud were under the impression that eating fish and meat together is extremely dangerous to one’s health. In fact, in those days, there was actually a dermatological condition which was believed to be caused by eating fish and meat together. As such, the rabbis prohibited the consumption of such mixtures, a practice which continues to this day. This ban applies to fowl as well.

The World’s Sixteen Crucified Saviors … Christianity before Christ, by Kersey Graves … first published in 1875.

and finally these twenty Jesus Christs (accepting their character for the name) laid the foundation for the salvation of the world, and ascended back to heaven.

1. Chrishna of Hindostan.
2. Budha Sakia of India.
3. Salivahana of Bermuda
4. Zulis, or Zhule, also Osiris and Orus, of Egypt.
5. Odin of the Scandinavians.
6. Crite of Chaldea.
7. Zoroaster and Mithra of Persia.
8. Baal and Taut,“the only Begotten of God,” of Phenicia.
9. Indra of Thibet.
10. Bali of Afghanistan.
11. Jao of Nepaul.
12. Wittoa of the Bilingonese.
13. Thammuz of Syria.
14. Atys of Phrygia.
15. Xamolxis of Thrace.
16. Zoar of the Bonzes.
17. Adad of Assyria.
18. Deva Tat,aud Sammonocadam of Siam.
19. Alcides of Thebes.
20. Mikado of the Sintoos.
21. Beddru of Japan.
22. Hesus or Eros, and Bremrillah, of the Druids.
23. Thor, son of Odin, of the Gauls.
24. Cadmus of Greece.
25. Hil and Feta of the Mandaites.
26. Gentaut and Quexalcote of Mexico.
27. Universal Monarch of the Sibyls.
28. Ischy of the Island of Formosa.
29. Divine teacher of Plato.
30. Holy One of xaca.
31. Fohi and Tien of China.
32. Adonis, son of the virgin Io of Greece.
33. Ision and Quirinus of Rome.
34. Prometheus of Caucasus.
35. Mohammud, or Mahomet, of Arabia.

These have all received divine honors, have nearly all been worshiped as Gods, or sons of Gods; were mostly incarnated as Christs, Saviors, Messiahs, or Mediators; not a few of them were reputedly born of virgins; some of them filling a character almost identical with that ascribed by the Christian’s bible to Jesus Christ; many of them like him, are reported crucified; and all of them, taken together, furnish a prototype and parallel for nearly every important incident and wonder-inciting miracle, doctrine and precept recorded in the New Testament, of the Christian’s Savior. Surely, with so many Saviors the world cannot, or should not, be lost.

Correct. All faithful Catholics believe and profess per Romans 10.

But "believing" is an action, a continuous effort, not just a one time event. The bible says that one can reject their salvation, turn away from God and be condemned. It also says that we are justified by works and not by faith alone.
