HOJO,
Maybe if I say it enough times, you will get it....
The authority is NOT in the church, but IN Christ JESUS!!!!!!!!!!
There is a message here, if you will just open your heart!
Maybe if I say it "one more time" TO YOU that you just might get it.....although I doubt that you will........because you have been PROPAGANDIZED systematically (since the Reformation)--falling into (half-truth, half-heresy) bible only distorted teaching by being "duped, deceived and totally misled by this "false interpretation" of Gods Word that you "fundies" just "make up" on your own..... Sola Scriptura is nothing more than an offshoot of 17th century "editorialized heresy", which has plagued the TRUTH of the TRUE Spoken and Stated words of Jesus Christ HIMSELF, for over 2000 years. I lived this bible only "half-truth, half-heresy" (so-called Christianity for over 35 years before the Spirit of God, through His Son Jesus Christ, led me out of this "bible only bondage" of judgmental, condemning, false and perverted "fundies"teaching which has "absolutely NO BASIS of ANY biblical or historical truth to back up ANY of its "man-made--personal opinionated teachings. It will repeat it again to you Truth!!
Listen, read it carefully and comprehend what was written, believed, taught what was, is and will always be the TRUTH of the TRUE Word of God, from over 2000 years ago!



Jesus Christ IS the Church! The "AUTHORITY of the ABSOLUTE TRUTH of Jesus, is in HIS CHURCH!..HE and HIS CHURCH are one!..The TRUE Word of God, is "only" in His Son Jesus and the AUTHORITY is found "only" in HIS (Universal-Catholic) Church (Paul said so) when he calls THE CHURCH (NOT in the bible alone)....... the pillar, pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH (I Timothy 3:15...... Jesus is the TRUE Bread of Life, come down from heaven!..... HIS TRUE BODY AND HIS TRUE BLOOD is in (ONLY) in the Eucharist (John 6:47-59) ONLY recognized, ONLY given and ONLY manifested in and through His One (and only one) True Apostolic Catholic Church.......... Without HIS TRUE BODY AND BLOOD, you CANNOT have eternal life!!---Jesus HIMSELF, said it!
You bible only "fundies" can twist, manipulate and distort the "true interpretation" of the bible,(all you want), and pervert the "true meaning" with the same "half-truth, half-heresy" lies (over and over and over again--(as you always do)......... HOWEVER,.....your bible only opinionated "lies" (that you fundies are so famous for) will NEVER change the TRUTH of over 2000 years of the TRUTH of TRUE WORD OF GOD "only revealed, only taught and only manifested in Our Lord Jesus Christs One True Catholic Church (the Bride of Christ)

You seem to believe. SELF is,all important ..based on some thing ...self alone ..self with God ...self as,in only what your SELF accrues,materially in this,life??
Seld is important, and if you really dig deep into the subject, Self is why you do the things you do. As for "all important", I guess one could say that is true in some extent.

You require free will and personal thoughts to actually perform any task or speak any thought, and without Self's involvement, you really are just a person who is unable to do anything.

Unless, you have some sort of evidence that shows you are doing these things without it and "God" is your puppeteer. Do you?

If not, then stop lying about it not being important.

<quoted text>And belief in Him..repentance to Him..Eternal life WITH HIM
Belief = action of Self
Repentance = action of Self
eternal life with "Him" - occurs when we die, so it is supposed.
RoSesz wrote:
<quoted text>YES,each self has to relate to GOD ..... u cannot relate to Him for anyone else,..it vice versa,...

You really don't know what you are talking about, or you do, and knowingly reject these teachings of Jesus that speaks directly to this.

Which is it?
RoSesz wrote:

More actions by Self. Unless you think you are a puppet? Are you?

Then I really shouldn't be talking to you, but to "God", whom you say is "using you".

What I have been wondering recently...And,not sure how your Church handles,this,.
I agree,that if we,sin against a,person ...say stealing we should make it up to them ..call it penance or restitution .
As kids,..yes,we,got priest,who gave more,penance ..some less,..we,liked the less,.
But as,an adult ..why is,saying prayers,penance ..
Just curious,.
Shouldn't a,prayer be heartfelt communication...not punishment???
Does your Church give prayers,like his,as,penance ???
What makes you think the prayers of a penitent are not heartfelt communication? They most certainly are, and if not, they should be. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is above all a healing sacrament. We confess our sins and the priest offers spiritual, and sometimes practical, advice where appropriate. We are there because of our sorrow for offending God and desire to be reconciled to Him. Penance is but one expression of that sorrow. It is not to be viewed as a punishment.

Define "our Church"...
Good luck - as there has been many definitions to this entity, yet all seem to be different.

In an RCCers eyes, it is the Roman Catholic Church, and doesn't include Protestant or Orthodox churches.

In the Orthodox view - it includes them all.

In the Protestant view - it only includes Protestant denominations and churches.

IMO - it is the believers in Jesus, but wait a minute - most of Christianity doesn't believe in many of Jesuss teachings, so it must be still soemthing else.

Like I said - good luck!

There is "no bible unity" with you bible only "fundies" because (since the Reformation) you have DIS-UNITED into 42,000 contradicting of splittered, fractured and divided ----RELATIVE TRUTHS of God's Word--who can't agree on ANYTHING except attacking, condemning, ripping and judging the faith and Salvation of over 1.2 billion Catholic Christians (world-wide)-------AND------- Jesus Christs HIMSELF and HIS One True Catholic Church. How can you have "bible unity" when you have over 42,000 RELATIVE TRUTH (personal opinions) of Gods Word. There is ONLY ONE TRUTH of Gods Word---(not 42,000 contradiction of HIS WORD. That is "exactly why" there is ONLY ONE TRUTH OF Gods Word!!!!! It is been proven, authenticated and verified over and over and over again by (the vast majority of )highly accredited Church Historian and Apologist authors and writers (both Catholic and Protestant) and THAT ONE TRUE TRUTH of GODS WORD has, is and will always be grounded and manifested in JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF--in and through His One True Catholic Church----(and none other)!!!!!

Our world as we know it is self destructing....

THEIS PROPHECY HAS ALREADY BEEN FULFILLED

FROM AD 70...1948,,,Israel RETURNED

Luk 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

THESE PROPHECIES ARE IN PROGRESS NOW

Luk 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

Luk 21:26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

THE EARTH IS CONVULSING FROM THE SIN UPON IT'S SURFACE
THERE ARE EARTHQUAKES, VOLCANIC IRRUPTIONS, STORMS,
TORNADO'S, AND THERE IS NO PEACE...

NOTE

Luk 21:27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

Luk 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Don't worry about it, Roseez. That is his parroted message. He says about two things continually: "Why don't you believe Jesus?"
But he never says what he is talking about. I don't think he knows what he believes.
KayMarie
LOL

"That is his parroted message."
- no its not, it is Jesus' message that you refuse to acknowledge.

"He says about two things continually: "Why don't you believe Jesus?""
- this is only one of the two things.
- the other, since you aren't paying attention - "to know yourself is to know the kingdom of God." Another statement by Jesus you refuse to accept.

Please don't lie about me, it shows the kind of person you really are.

"But he never says what he is talking about."
- that is because you probably skip right over my posts. I've trued to explain everything I post in the most easiest way for you Literalist to understand. And yet you still state lies about me.

You are why I left Christianity, I couldn't stand people lying about others. They did it so well in Catholicism, and now I understand that they do it across the board - even within your sect.

"I don't think he knows what he believes."
- There you go again, thinking incorrectly and without substantiating your opinion.
- I know exactly what I believe.
- I also know that you don't believe in what Jesus taught, and that you lie that you do.

Jesus renamed Simon, Rock. Without a doubt the dumbest thing you've said to date.
Psalm 62:1 For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.
* So verses like this are now null and void and the Rock has been renamed to Peter?
*Christ is the Rock ALL OVER SCRIPTURE but He renamded it to Simon...really Clay?
Jesus to Simon: "you are rock, and upon this rock I'll build my Church"

Acts 1:15 "in those days, Rock stood up among the believers (a group numbering about 120).

Acts 2:14 "then Rock stood up with the eleven and raised his voice and addressed the crowed....'listen careful to what I say"

Acts 2:38 "Rock replied, repent and be baptized everyone of you"

Acts 3:6 "then Rock said,'silver and gold I do not have, but what i do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk"

Yes, I'm pretty sure Jesus named Simon Rock, and I proved it with scripture.

You realize your "end of the world" cult is a minority Christian view, right?

Your particular cult is barely 100 years old. Back in the middle ages, you would have been burned at the stake as a heretic by your fellow Christians.

Of course he does, because you, like many so-called Catholics, can't seem to find goodness in people, so you automatically go to the negative and make unfounded comparisons of people.

Yep - the double-talking liars of Catholicism.

To give you facts, the serpent is a symbol in many cultures, and mean many different things, including fertility, >>>gaurdians of sacre places<<< and other meanings.

But you seem to go with the negative.

People like you are why the world is always "out to get" another person - especially if they are not like you.

Michael said it before - "because they don't believe like you" is a perfect explanation of Catholicism.

Prestons interpretations of the Bible says I'm going to eternal hell for being Catholic. He's not afraid to tell me it either. So no, I do not believe the Holy Spirit has anything to do with his interpretations. I don't think he's a legitimate Minister, no matter how many verses he's memorized either. He backs off on you want guys because you're polite to him and you have a common enemy. That's a wolf in sheep's clothing, Sera.
You are lying again. what I say and I will say it again.

JESUS SAYS UNLESS A MAN IS BORN AGAIN, HE WILL NOT ENTER HEAVEN.

I believe that YOU are not Born Again and all of the constant lying that YOU do is proof that you are not Saved.

as for Nick and Sera, their Love for the Lord is evident and is on display for ALL to see and that is what I go by.

as far as verses memorized, I cant hardly get John 3:16 correctly, But I do know what the Bible is telling us, and that is what is important.

So fine, if you want to publicly take him serious for that. I don't. And I know at least have the non Catholics don't.
Just because someone is not orthodox doesn't mean that I cant respect them. I know what he believes about my church but as a person he respect me as a human being and I respect him.He can say what ever he believes about my church. He has that right.I don't feel the need to defend my beliefs.In his eyes he is correct. In my eyes I am correct. In Gods eyes its ALL UP TO HIM NOT US.
