Your term is much different than non-Catholics.

How are Catholics 'born again'? In other words, what is the difference between a Catholic 'born again' so-called "Christian" and someone who is of another denomination?
Clay wrote:
<quoted text>Frankly, I question whether or not you're born again in the way Christ wills.

As I question you and the Catholics. Jesus tells us to "know yourself" - whereas Catholics rbuke what Jesus stated.
Clay wrote:
<quoted text>I see you falsely accusing me and other Catholics;

Accusing you of what? I accuse you directly of not believing in all of what Jesus taught. This is a fact.

I do undetstand your concern with other non-Catholics and their accusations, so maybe there are items that you could "examine within" to help resolve your anomosity.

"to know yourself is to know the kingdom of God."
Clay wrote:
<quoted text>I see you undoing the Eucharist;

The Eucharist is symbolic - that will never change, no matter how often people refute it. Understanding it is something completely different. So far Christianity has it all wrong.
Clay wrote:
<quoted text>I listen as you pick apart the Church using their scriptures against them.
The so-called "Church" - as related to the RCC or Orthodoxy - has never been defined, and if it is, it was only defined by men.

Using texts to "pick apart' a creation of men, is really irrelevant.

Maybe it is time you turn toward "God", instead of men.
Clay wrote:
<quoted text>The fact that any of you still experience the profound grace of God even though you undid virtually everything the Apostles taught is not do to your man made doctrines, but due to the infinite love God has for you.

Considering Christianity only uses less than six of the original 13 Apostles, you are sitting in the same room as those you admonish.
Clay wrote:
<quoted text>I'm in awe of Gods profound Mercy.

But you'll turn a blind eye to his "mercy" when "He" allows a young girl gang raped multiple times, or when children freeze to death when trying to get home on Christmas.

You see only what you want to see - what men place in front of you.

BTW - that would also be Self.
Clay wrote:

Uh-huh. Sure.

Through honesty, I've reserved to say where I [my spirit] will end up, BECAUSE I DON"T KNOW!!
But that doesn't mean I don't like to believe it will be in some sort of "paradise", because that would be untrue. I want to beleive we all go to someplace special that is "pure love".
But alas, since I have not died, had any NDEs, or anything, I guess I have to just wait, just like everyone else, but being honest in the manner of what I have said - I don't know.
Again, those who tell you there is a place, are only using their Self to formulate a fantasy, and in truth, they have no idea where they will be going either.
Being honest and saying you don't know is most truthful and the best policy.

..... How can anyone with common sense born into their particular belief by chance only! have answers to after death knowledge if no one has come back to verify their results?

Almost all religions teach the same thing. Scare the hell out of their followers to keep them believing and in the herd. Some say there is a Jesus, some say Allah, some believe there is a Sasquash, some say there is a bigfoot, or lockness monster some say others. Until one of these spirits in the sky, or invisible monsters from the woods actually appears to all of us, I will continue to sit on the sidelines and not endorse any religious belief or made up monster from the wild.

........its common sense!

They lie and continue to lie that we say it's ok to sin.
We warn saved people could get sick or even die with no rewards in heaven if they continue to sin.
Never does the Gospel say a Saved person could lose their salvation.
Pick now whom you shall serve.

The question of OSAS is true or not true, is a difficult question to answer. In a sense we are "trying" to answer for God, which puts one in jeopardy of breaking the first commandment.

Jesus died for all..., these words in the Bible, also have been variously interpreted.

A lot of the issue comes to one's world-view, of what being "saved" means. Does one get a front or back row seat, or standing room only in heaven...?

Perhaps the more emphatic we are with our answer to the question of OSAS, the less truth exists. Instead it may remain a mystery, or a paradox of faith and hope in Jesus Christ.

Chuck has always used the Scripture to verify what he believes is sound doctrine.

therefore he walks in the "light' that he has received. and I have no problem with that, so why should you, a catholic who doesn't believe in being Born Again as chuck and I do, mock his beliefs?

Col 1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

by him all things consist.
NOTE AGAIN
Col 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
Col 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

From my perception Jesus didn't write anything because Jesus didn't exist.
All savior myths were stories told by men for men.
Women were too busy cooking meals,(if there was any food available)... cleaning house and washing diapers and trying to survive the birth of the next babies who would grow up and repeat the same suffering for the men of the hierarchies.
again I can't argue with you hear, you could be right, there could of been a person named Jesus (very common name there)and he just claimed to be the son of god, in other words the worlds first religious nut, and he could of been asked questions on which he told stories of ones he heard growing up, we really don't know much about his childhood except that it is believed he killed someone when he was at a young age, now if that is true why didn't he receive the punishment that every murderer received back in those days? I think what is hidden in the vaults of Vatican city are the stories/legends told of his days as a youth,and more, why is it allowed to be hidden? gods words were meant for everyone, not a select few, again reasons I doubt their validity, the true church would share the truth, and that is the last thing they do. since most everything in Vatican city is stolen property, I don't understand why nothing is being done to have the things returned to it's rightful owner? most everything came from Israel, the Israelis have a large enough army to go to Vatican city and reclaim their property. this seems to be the era where everyone wants a war, so why not have a war for a true worthy cause....and until some truth pops up I believe that the real writer or starter of the scriptures was a man called Jesus and penned under the name of mosses, and added himself to the book, when he felt the time was right. and there is the possibility that god was an alien from another planet that visited here, there is some very compelling evidence out there written many many years before any body thought of organized religious groups, and we also know that man was here at least 30 million years ago, the bible states other wise, there are physical facts to prove the possibility of an alien race being here, and not one bit of proof of the single god theory people believe in today.

VATICAN CITY (Reuters)- The Vatican has recalled its ambassador to the Dominican Republic and relieved him of his duties pending an investigation, after local media accused him of pedophilia, a spokesman for the Roman Catholic Church said on Wednesday.

The Dominican Attorney General later announced that a special prosecutor had been appointed to investigate Archbishop Josef Wesolowski, who has been nuncio, or ambassador, in the capital Santo Domingo for nearly six years.

Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said the Holy See had started a probe of Wesolowski and that he had been recalled "in the last few weeks," specifically over the pedophilia accusations.

"He has been relieved of his duties and the Holy See has begun an investigation," Lombardi said when asked about allegations against Wesolowski in the local media.

Wesolowski could not be reached for comment.

Weeks after his election in March as the first non-European pontiff in 1,300 years, Pope Francis announced he wanted the church to root out sexual abuse of children by priests and ensure that abusers are punished.

Monsignor Agripino Núñez Collado, a church official in the Caribbean nation, told reporters the Vatican acted as soon as the pope had been informed of Wesolowski's alleged "missteps."
JETHRO: I posted this because I'm curious to see how franny handles the situation......the molesting scandal is a very well known fact of their guilt all around, that it's not worth talking about any more, but as I said I'm curious to see what Fran does about this guy.

Or you seriously telling me that 'as long as Chuck uses scripture to verify what he believes is sound doctrine' its ok with you? Even if its opposite of what the Apostles and the Lord taught... its ok with you? You're a piece of work.

Did Jesus say "search the scriptures" to figure out what the heck we think His teachings are? Of course not. He started a Church; a teaching Magisterium that would protect truth from generation to generation. In fact, they were doing just fine until you fanatics stole their scriptures and undid the most sacred teachings of the Lord. Its been a doctrinal disaster since.
Like I said, I am in awe of the power of God and His infinite Love for humanity. In spite of everything the protestants did to the Holy Scriptures, God still blesses you when you sincerely pray. God is indeed good.

Hi Thomas, I'm not positive of my own salvation.. although I humbly believe that if I died today i would be with the Lord. I need to endure til the end like Christ says. I think I can do that as long as I stay close to the Sacraments

btw, nobody is talking about child sexual abuse stuff today, how come you're on here.?!?

We are to set an example to the world of what He did for us.
If we straddle the fence,what will others think of us?
They would call us hypocrites.
We cannot live like the devil and get by with it.
Then why do you only believe in a small portion of his teachings?

You are a hypocrite.

Why do you believe men?

Where does "God" specifically state which texts are "His" inspiration and which are not?

When you can stop lying to others, then maybe you will be ready for what Jesus actually taught.

It means much more than a mere mental assent, or an intellectual acknowledgement of Christ as Saviour. The biblical meaning of "believe" necessitates obedience. To believe means to accept the fullnes of Christ's teaching and to act on it. Read St. James's epistle.

But since you asked, in the least you are questioning that which you don't know.

Since it won't be found in the Bible that it is a personal relationship, maybe you can direct me - within the Bible - where I can find where "God" specifically states which texts are inspired and which are not, so I can make sure I am following "God" to the letter.
