Your heart, mind, and soul has been so infected and polluted with lies regarding the TRUTH what the Catholic Church actually believes and teaches, that (in your own desperation) you will say "ALMOST ANYTHING" and --MISQUOTE "any bible verse" in order to keep your "vindictive hate" heated up" against Jesus Christ HIMSELF and His One True Catholic Church.

READ THE WORD OF GOD FOR YOURSELF...

Mal_3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not;

Eze 23:28 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will deliver thee into the hand of them whom thou hatest, into the hand of them from whom thy mind is alienated:

Eze 23:29 And they shall deal with thee hatefully, and shall take away all thy labour, and shall leave thee naked and bare: and the nakedness of thy whoredoms shall be discovered, both thy lewdness and thy whoredoms.

Eze 23:30 I will do these things unto thee, because thou hast gone a whoring after the heathen, and because thou art polluted with their idols.

You are confusing pride, with "CONVICTION", which is a product of spiritual insight, discernment, perseverence and firm belief. Again, the Eucharist is a gift of Gods Grace from Jesus Christ HIMSELF.....By accepting the Eucharist everyday and proclaiming it as the TRUE BODY and Blood of Christ (in which non-catholics REFUSE to believe it) is (in no way) using it as a weapon. Just because Catholics believe it and Protestants "refuse to" has absolutely (no relevance what-so-ever) in your claim that I am using it as a weapon!!(Everyone has that choice)...It's like saying "I accept and proclaim Jesus Christ every day as Lord and Savior and you say" I don't"!! so how is that using "what I profess" as a weapon........ It is a proclamation of faith...... Sorry Seraphima but you are WRONG!! If I am incorrect, I will take it up with a priest, not with someones "opinion" on this forum, which is "loaded with personal opinions" most of them anti-catholic!!!
There is this story about a monk who tended to talk a lot to his brother monks about how he fasted more strictly and longer than all of them.His teacher advised him to break the fasts very publicly in front of his fellow monks in order to break his pride.....

THERE SHOULD BE NOTHING BETWEEN A PERSON AND GOD
2000 years ago, Jesus Christ left us HIS ONE TRUE (Universal-Catholic Church and HE told us (in Pauls letters to Timothy 3:15 that the TRUTH has been placed, vested and remains IN HIS CHURCH,(not in the bible alone) "as the pinnacle,pillar and foundation of the TRUTH, with Bishops, priests, elder and deacons (Acts 2)
To you I (Jesus) give you Peter and the Apostles, the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Jesus IS THE SAVIOR that intercedes for us between a person and GOD HIS FATHER! For over 2000 years Peter, the Apostles (and those Bishops that follow them, were appointed (BY JESUS HIMSELF) to lead Jesus' One TRUE CATHOLIC CHURCH...... If you can't understand this Confrinting, it is because you are so infected with hatred, animosity and vindictivness against the TRUTH of over 2000 years of the Catholic Church and "especially" against Jesus Christ HIMSELF, that you "continue" to be blinded to the TRUTH!! NO ONE can help you lift the "scales" off of your eyes, except Jesus Christ HIMSELF and by the power of the Holy Spirit!! Otherwise you will "continue" to remain on the "outside of the TRUTH" looking in!!!!

READ THE WORD OF GOD FOR YOURSELF...
I've read it!(countless times) Why don't you seek the TRUTH and read the TRUE INTERPRETATION of what the bible actually says, means and proclaims from over 1600 years ago by the Early Church Fathers (who wrote it and correctly interpreted it), in 397AD. HOWEVER, I know that you "won't do that" because you would rather live in world of "private judgment Christianity" (by attacking the faith of other Christians--"especially Catholics") in which your "personal opinion" is the final authority!!!!!!

True, if bow before any image that I believe is a god or believe Mary and the saints are gods/idols/divine, then I'm going to hell. That's why I would never think of these things or people as gods. I confess there is but only one God and I worship Him in the Holy Trinity.
The sad part is, I know you are aware of this, but you believe you found an 'out' by taking the first commandment out of context. You've convinced yourself God can be jealous of Mary or an image of Mary holding the infant Jesus. Absurd!
Let your pride and arrogance and words stand before God someday. Oh wait, you're so arrogant, you believe you don't have to stand before Him. You're good to go. You did an alter call and became saved for good!
You might need your yellow highlighted KJV in the next world to show Jesus how He is wrong about your scripture interpretations!!

Clay...please try to understand that an 'altar call' is not a quickie mind change...nor is it a license to live any way you wish.
I've seen alcoholics, drug addicts, prostitutes, etc. changed in that meeting with Jesus (not a preacher...they only present the Word which brings about the awakening or 'new birth'...if one believes the gospel when they hear it).
Thankfully, I was young enough that I had not been caught up in such issues, but when I had that experience, it changed me. I instantly had such joy, and such an awareness of His plan for us (purity/holiness) that I did not see serving Him as a sacrifice, but a privilege. I met a REAL LIVING SAVIOR, and He is still real to me.
My 'church' is not a 'government' that makes me obey 'laws'...it is a fellowship of other believers who are to help each other follow Him.

God is love and infinite Mercy. There is no doubt non Catholics would experience this too. Remember, its not we Catholics who say you're going to Hell... Its you evangelicals that say we are! I believe God meets you where you're at. The born again experience is definitely felt by non Catholics when they turn towards Jesus... I myself experience this all the time. I'm going to mass in about 15 min, and I'll encounter the Lord in the Eucharist.(Luke 24: 13-35)

Jesus did not go around the Priest, he fulfilled the need for them, he rendered them obsolete. He was the Last sacrifice ever needed to satisfy the Justice to pay for the price of Sin.
That is why no Temple will ever be built again, It is Finished.
No priests no sacrifices ever again needed for Jew or Gentile if we believe through faith in Christ Jesus our High Priest then we are all sons of Abraham we are all Jews God's chosen people, he has grafted us into the vine and those born Jews culturally who reject Jesus they are pruned and cut off the Vine.

You know one thing I noticed on this,and another CATH. PROT board years,ago

Both have very odd ideas,about the other .

The altar calls I saw,were yes,...people coming to Christ ..it also served ....since it was a small congregation ..as,getting direction..a,public acknowledgement of needing guidance or a,rededication..

Communion is,not like eating flesh .

Things like that ...

It then in the middle,ages,things,spread soy Jews sacrificing babies.

I truly believe that there are true Christians in a Catholic and non Catholic Churches ..ones who love Jesus,above all..

Catholics in this age have real bible study ..not just CATECHISM.

Maybe we could,all see we have a,Saviour in common and let the Spirit do His,work on those seeking Jesus truly ..

The,rest well there are CINO in every Church ...And practices NOT IN COMMON

AND THAT WILL NOT CHANGE EVER

Just my opinion

A project to rebuild the Temple of God in Israel is now being started. With Divine Guidance and Help the "Temple" will be completed. Jews will be inspired to conduct themselves in such a moral way that our Maker will see fit to pay us a visit here on earth. Imagine the warm feeling that will be ours when this happy event takes place. "THIS IS MY GOD" is the book that was the inspiration for this undertaking. God will place in the minds of many person in all walks of Jewish life the desire to participate in this work. Executive talent, Administrations, and Workers on all levels are needed. All efforts will be anonymous. GOD will know those desiring to participate.

The above advertisement appeared in the Washington Post, on May 21, 1967---before Jerusalem was liberated. The caption letters were 72 points - one inch - high. The ad occupied a space of eleven by eight inches.
Although the ban on visiting the Temple Mount is in effect it has not stopped those in Israel for thinking about the realization of a long lost dream, the rebuilding of the Temple. Once the city of Jerusalem was retaken this was no longer a pipe dream. Time magazine reported:
Since the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in AD 70, Conservative and Orthodox Jews have beseeched God four times a week to 'renew our days' as they once were---a plea for the restoration of the Temple. Although Zionism was largely a secular movement, one of its sources was the prayers of the Jews for a return to Palestine so that they could build a temple ... Learned Jewish opinion has long debated when and how the temple can be rebuilt. The great medieval philosopher Maimonides, in his Code of Jewish Law, argued that every generation of Jews was obliged to rebuild the temple if its site was ever retaken, if a leader descended from David could be found, and if the enemies of Jerusalem were destroyed.(Ref. 7).
LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS DAY AS IT HASNT COME YET!
Isaiah 2:3
Many peoples will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths." The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
I think so too ..when?????

Will that be the sight of he ABOMINATION???? Not by Jews but by Anti Christ ...???

BILLY GRAHAM’S GRANDSON: EVANGELICALS ’WORSE’ THAN CATHOLICS ON SEX ABUSE

AUSTIN, Texas (RNS) The Christian mission field is a “magnet” for sexual abusers, Boz Tchividjian, a Liberty University law professor who investigates abuse said Thursday (Sept. 26) to a room of journalists.

While comparing evangelicals to Catholics on abuse response,”I

think we are worse,” he said at the Religion Newswriters

Association conference, saying too many evangelicals had

“sacrificed the souls” of young victims.

“Protestants can be very arrogant when pointing to Catholics,” said Tchividjian, a grandson of evangelist Billy Graham and executive director of Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment (GRACE), which has investigated sex abuse allegations.

Earlier this summer, GRACE spearheaded an online petition decrying the “silence” and “inattention” of evangelical leaders to sexual abuse in their churches.

Mission agencies,“where abuse is most prevalent,” often don’t report abuse because they fear being barred from working in foreign countries, he said. Abusers will get sent home and might join another agency. Of known data from abuse cases, 25 percent are repeat cases, he said.

The Church allowed? you are wrong on that point.
According to the John Jay…..[did your these protestant churches allow it??]
Literally every denomination and faith tradition has its share of abuse cases, and some of the worst involve non-Catholics. Every mainline Protestant denomination has had scandals aplenty, as have Pentecostals, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Jews, Buddhists, Hare Krishnas -- and the list goes on. One Canadian Anglican (Episcopal) diocese is currently on the verge of bankruptcy as a result of massive lawsuits caused by decades of systematic abuse, yet the Anglican church does not demand celibacy of its clergy.
