According to the first ones to mention the word Christian, The one and only Abrahamic God did NOT want the faithful Jews to continue teaching Judaism as HIS one and only favorite religion.

There is no such thing as a demoninational church in God's Kingdom.
Exactly! Luther started denominations in the 16th century Reformation and you "fundies" have expanded your denominations to
to over 42,000 contradicting, chaotic and confused "inconsistent "man-made"denominati ons. The WORD OF GOD (made flesh) in Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit who reveals the TRUTH, does NOT contradict HIMSELF with 42,000+ conflicting "relative truths"..... You bible only "fundies" are ALL OVER THE PLACE when it comes to "ANYTHING" that is TRUE. Each one of you have "your own editorialized (opinionated) interpretation" of the bible that is a "hodge-podge" of "WHAT I THINK" is true------ half-truth, half-heresy Christianity! God is not, has not, nor ever will be the author of your bible only contradicting, confusion and chaos!!!!

So, according to Catholics, Jehovah said ... "Let there be NO more Judaism preached on earth! I no longer favor the Jews as my chosen few. I now favor only the Catholics, and I want my son Jesus to work for the popes in the Catholic confessionals."

YEAH RIGHT!!!

At least when Martin Luther married his honey-bun nun, he no longer had to pretend he was celibate.

<quoted text>Catholics teach we are born with original sin. Only the Blessed Virgin is Immaculate. No one else.
And where does Jesus fit into your picture? Was HE also sinless??? Jesus comes before the Theotokos in our church.

<quoted text>==========
First of all out of civility I did not mention that the Orthodox consider the Immaculate Conception as an innovation of Catholics and a heresy.
Second of all, Sera was referring to John Chrysostom. He is recognized by the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church as a saint and as a Doctor of the Church.Hardly a blasphemer.
Chrysostom comments on Matthew 12:46-49:
"That which I was lately saying, that when virtue is wanting all things are vain, this is now also pointed out very abundantly. For I indeed was saying, that age and nature, and to dwell in the wilderness, and all such things, are alike unprofitable, where there is not a good mind; but to-day we learn in addition another thing, that even to have borne Christ in the womb, and to have brought forth that marvellous birth, hath no profit, if there be not virtue.
And this is hence especially manifest. "For while He yet talked to the people," it is said, "one told Him, Thy mother and Thy brethren seek Thee. But He saith, who is my mother, and who are my brethren?"
And this He said, not as being ashamed of His mother, nor denying her that bare Him; for if He had been ashamed of her, He would not have passed through that womb; but as declaring that she hath no advantage from this, unless she do all that is required to be done.
For in fact that which she had essayed to do, was of superfluous vanity; in that she wanted to show the people that she hath power and authority over her Son, imagining not as yet anything great concerning Him; whence also her unseasonable approach.
See at all events both her self- confidence and theirs. Since when they ought to have gone in, and listened with the multitude; or if they were not so minded, to have waited for His bringing His discourse to an end, and then to have come near; they call Him out, and do this before all, evincing a superfluous vanity, and wishing to make it appear, that with much authority they enjoin Him.
And this too the evangelist shows that he is blaming, for with this very allusion did he thus express himself, "While He yet talked to the people;" as if he should say, What? was there no other opportunity? Why, was it not possible to speak with Him in private?
(Homilies on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, 44)
Regarding John 2:3-4, Chrysostom comments:
For where parents cause no impediment or hindrance in things belonging to God, it is our bounden duty to give way to them, and there is great danger in not doing so; but when they require anything unseasonably, and cause hindrance in any spiritual matter, it is unsafe to obey.
And therefore He answered thus in this place, and again elsewhere, "Who is My mother, and who are My brethren?" (Matt. 11,48), because they did not yet think rightly of Him; and she, because she had borne Him, claimed, according to the custom of other mothers, to direct Him in all things, when she ought to have reverenced and worshiped Him.
This then was the reason why He answered as He did on that occassion....And so this was a reason why He rebuked her on that occasion, saying, "Woman, what have I to do with thee?" instructing her for the future not to do the like; because, though He was careful to honor His mother, yet He cared much for the salvation of her soul
(Homilies on the Gospel According to St. John, 21)
I always hatched idea that she as a woman ..was no the instigator of he visit ..She KNEW He was special ..But the brethren ..thought something wrong (whoever we believe said brethren to be)
Jesus was embarrassment to some of them..they wanted him home .

We know she was THEre ..But ..I don't think we can assume she was going to interfere ...though ..as a mother ...She knew in her heart He was not safe .

Only my opinion....But of ALL people ..She knew His origin...

Anybody who believes that those monks are celibate ... say "I." And then I suggest you quick run to church and ask that your fibs be forgiven.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>

In January I traveled to Gaden-Shartse, my monastery in
southern India, to ask my question. The vow of celibacy
I had taken three years before when I was ordained
allows for no sexual act (wet dreams are the exception-they
occur in sleep and are unwilled). Masturbation clearly
breaks that vow-and monks, I learned, did it. "But no
one speaks about this," one monk explained. "The young
monks get up and wash their sheets and say nothing."

I suggest that humans are sexual beings, and it is unnatural to expect that they won't have sex.

They masturbate, I was told, while
trying to go to sleep.

Still Hojo where do you get we are to point anyone to a church?
Jesus HIMSELF established "a" CHURCH---- HIS CHURCH in Matthew 16 and Paul tells us in I Timothy 3:15 that THE CHURCH (not the bible alone) in the pillar, pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH. Paul continues: "If there is a dispute (he says) "take it to the Church" (not the bible). It is quite clear that Jesus, Paul, Peter, the Apostles --ALL of them-----direct us to "a" Church, and it is Jesus Christs biblically and historically PROVEN One True Apostolic (Universal-Catholic) Church that has been "the pillar, pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH- for over 2000 years ---proclaiming--the TRUE GOSPEL and the TRUE DOCTRINE of Jesus Christ--in and through HIS ONE TRUE CHURCH. There is ONLY ONE TRUTH---not 42,000 contradicting, conflicting and inconsistent bible only (man-made) self-interpreting (relative truths) based upon what each one of the 42,000 bible interpreters "think is truth"!!

Every person that believes in the myth of salvation, is certain that he/she is "without a doubt" saved and others are doomed to end up in hell.
How funny that humans don't see the arrogance that motivates such self-centered thought.
There you go again, making false conclusions.

You really need to learn the differences between:

Every person
Some people

....it will help you better understand that beliefs are personal and may or may not be the same as another.

We already know that Christianity hawks many versions, you have hojo's version, then you have Dan's version, and Regina's version, and even Herme and Sera's version, your version, my version, and every other 42100 sect's version.

Not "every person" has the same "salvation" result as much as you want to think they do. You have been short-changed in your learning of these statements.
