But that does not take away from the fact that still there are issues,that most likely will never be resolved by us on this planet concerning "Whose Church is the only one.",and the good reason for the fact that we are aware of each other,YET at the same time appreciate each other as well in Christ!
It pains me to see the Chaldean Church in Syria being in the middle of radical Islam's war,you I am sure agree?And I see those brothers and sisters in Christ as being one with them in their suffering,and pray for our Lord to sustain them,and keep His Angels round about them to protect them from the ravages of Islamic fury!
They're in a bad spot for sure.

<quoted text>Michael,what happened to June? Oh you are going to take her place once again? Well that's good.
You assume too much about God Michael,especially for someone who claims he does not believe in Him anymore.
If a Scientist has a formula that he alone created or discovered,and he alone has a patent,I doubt that no matter how many other scientists show up to claim they created or discovered the same formula,they will be able to steal the true rendition or original from the Scientist who discovered it!
You must think God is an Idiot,He created the heavens and the earth,all the planets,He created all that is seen and unseen,and ONLY HE can be given the full credit for what He did.You think that everyone has all the right stuff together to piece the God of their understanding? You claim we all argue and that our argument destroys this fragile world,but the truth is,the misconception and the lies of who and what God is destroys whole nations,Not God,nor His willingness to meet with all of us,to reveal His true character of Love.To give us Hope to look forward to His plan to restore life and order.Faith calls out to Him to act and to give us what we need the most to help not just ourselves but everyone around us.
Michael you go on and on about trying to undermine faith,and at the same time you attack us claiming we dissect God.
And where do you stand in all of this? You must have quite a bit to tell the Creator yourself,I suggest you try it sometime,and stick with it for more than one minute,hour,or day,or even a week!
Pad says.....you must think God is an Idiot,He created the heavens and the earth,all the planets.

Michael says,.......If you first claim that I don't believe in God then you claim I think God is an idiot. Make up your mind!

What is the purpose of the other planets? What is the purpose of the rest of the universe and trillions of gaseous stars? If God created the heavens, where was God before that? Do you know? NO! Now you sound like me.

If you believe God is the creator of all, and God can destroy all, and if God doesn't like me why has God allowed me to still be here telling my stories that offends you?

By far the vast majority of believers were BORN into their faith, just as your grandparents before. They didn't find it. Most believers are so because of family-hand-me-down tradition regardless of whether one is a Jew, Muslim, Catholic, protestant etc. Everyone believes their way is right, everyone has ancient books that they use to try and prove their own conflicting doctrines.

Is there an almighty God? I don't know and neither do you.

Christians share a sacred meal with their God—Pagans did it first

Eating the Flesh of the God

The notion that the meal involved eating the God's flesh was not new with Christianity. Of the Roman God Liber (aka Dionysus, or Bacchus) Christian father Firmicus Maternus writes that
his followers believe "he was intercepted and killed," and his murderers, "chopped his members up into pieces and...devoured them." An event which his worshipers celebrate in "recurring sacred rites celebrated every two years," in which, "They tear a live bull with their teeth, representing the cruel banquet at which the God was eaten. "

I agree that she was filled with the Holy Ghost as the Bible says that she was there in the Upper Room on the Day of Pentecost, when the Holy Ghost filled ALL of the believers including the Brothers of Jesus.

But I don't agree that All Ministers are filled with the Holy Ghost. there are many that have never Experienced that Spiritual Blessing from God.

unlike marge, I know that this doesn't occur at the time of Salvation, when at that time, a person receives the Spirit of Christ.

The Catholic Church does not "force people" into the Church to become Catholic.......New Converts to the Catholic Faith are leaving their bible only Protestant Churches by the thousands, and are "freely" coming to the FULLNESS of the TRUTH and the FULLNESS of the FAITH in Jesus Christ (in and through) HIS (historically and biblically PROVEN) One TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church. The Catholic Church continues to be the ONLY CHURCH that grows "each and every year" by 1.5% per year and their is "good reason"! The TRUTH of the TRUE FAITH continues to "teach the TRUTH" as it has for over 2000 years since Jesus HIMSELF initiated and established HIS One True Catholic Church!!

The problem is you guys give more respect towards a gold chest that brought the word of God to us than you do the woman who brought forth the word of God made flesh, Jesus Christ.

"What is the definition of idolatry?"
Answer: The definition of idolatry, according to Webster, is “the worship of idols or excessive devotion to, or reverence for some person or thing.” An idol is anything that replaces the one, true God. The most prevalent form of idolatry in Bible times was the worship of images that were thought to embody the various pagan deities.
From the beginning, God’s covenant with Israel was based on exclusive worship of Him alone (Exodus 20:3; Deuteronomy 5:7). The Israelites were not even to mention the names of false gods (Exodus 23:13) because to do so would acknowledge their existence and give credence to their power and influence over the people. Israel was forbidden to intermarry with other cultures who embraced false gods, because God knew this would lead to compromise. The book of Hosea uses the imagery of adultery to describe Israel’s continual chasing after other gods, like an unfaithful wife chases after other men. The history of Israel is a sad chronicle of idol worship, punishment, restoration and forgiveness, followed by a return to idolatry. The books of 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 & 2 Kings, and 1 & 2 Chronicles reveal this destructive pattern. The Old Testament prophets endlessly prophesied dire consequences for Israel if they continued in their idolatry. Mostly, they were ignored until it was too late and God’s wrath against idol-worship was poured out on the nation. But ours is a merciful God, and He never failed to forgive and restore them when they repented and sought His forgiveness.
In reality, idols are impotent blocks of stone or wood, and their power exists only in the minds of the worshipers. The idol of the god Dagon was twice knocked to the floor by God to show the Philistines just who was God and who wasn’t (1 Samuel 5:1-5). The “contest” between God and His prophet Elijah and the 450 prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel is a dramatic example of the power of the true God and the impotence of false gods (1 Kings 18:19-40). The testimony of Scripture is that God alone is worthy of worship. Idol worship robs God of the glory that is rightfully His, and that is something He will not tolerate (Isaiah 42:8).
Even today there are religions that bow before statues and icons, a practice forbidden by God’s Word. The significance God places upon it is reflected in the fact that the first of the Ten Commandments refers to idolatry:“You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me”(Exodus 20:3-5).
Idolatry extends beyond the worship of idols and images and false gods. Our modern idols are many and varied. Even for those who do not bow physically before a statue, idolatry is a matter of the heart—pride, self-centeredness, greed, gluttony, a love for possessions and ultimately rebellion against God. Is it any wonder that God hates it?

In a nutshell - if you are Jewish, it would mean something.

Could you be a bit more expository on this? Are you saying that there is God the Father, God the Holy Ghost, God the Spirit of Christ, and God is Jesus?

Don't get mad! I just want to hear how you tie this all together....

Stop lying. I never stated this. But you are correct, they are nothing but thoughts from men.

I asked you and your ilk where "God" specifically states which books/texts are "of His inspiration" and which are not.

Your team is trying to claim what is only in the Bible is inspired. I disagree. I think all texts are.

This is what I am stating. Your version twists it to a point that my point loses its meaning.

It appears you are trying to be misleading, Pad. Why?

Don't you believe "God" inspires everyone - or is it just a handful of characters from 1800+ years ago?

None needed as to the claim of "we left as the RC was corrupt".
If one reads up on protestant theology and history (even in a cursory manner), the common denominator is simply this-one guy interprets scripture his own way, gets people to follow him, and there's your denomination. Without fail, every single denomination in Protestantism (starting with Luther) follows this script.
No matter what denomination you look at, you get the one guy at the beginning who started it with his personal take on scripture.
