You believe same of yourselves and/or your ministers.
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.

Since you are not, it really is irrelevant.

Peace

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....

Thanks for posting - it follows along with what the Pope wrote about yesterday.

Thanks! I wonder how many people will actually take the time to contemplate their own behaviors and thoughts.

Okay. It is.

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.
There ya have it...Constantine comes ta mind...

This "DRAWING" you are writing about.... What is being "drawn"? How is it "drawn". Where is it "drawn"? Can you be specific?

I ask, because, someone's attention, emotion, and body can be drawn in different ways through different means and different ends.

Bummer for you though, with the Pope being "infallible" and you "believe the Pope teaches infallibility", it appears that you have a new belief that just showed up as of yesterday....

You get to now beleive that Atheists and non-believers get to go to heaven and witness "God's" mercy too.

:o)

I wonder how you are going to handle this? Accepting I hope.

"This isn't a new teaching."
- I've been telling you this for years. Finally the Pope can justify my words. Thank you Pope Francis.

Hey Mike - isn;t it fun to watch Dan back-peddle?

I've stated that "this teaching" has been around for millenia - he continuously refutes my statements, and now he says that it's been around for years.

Well we know Jesus teaches it highly, and he refutes it, I wonder if he will continnue to refute it when I say it now - using the Pope as my reference?

These Catholics really don't know what they are doing.

There you go again....insisting taht I live by what Jesus taught, as I already do, but yet you post everyone BESIDES Jesus to promote it.

You are confused. Too much wine can cause dizziness and delusion, huh?

Why don't you first do what you are asking me to do?- "Show us by example that you live what Jesus taught"

a. I've post just one teaching by Jesus, that I know you haven't done. And I can post others.

Don't be stupid GiF, you really aren't that special, but only in your own eyes. That would be arrogance and ego.

Get over yourself.
