You are really angry that there are people who believe in a really Holy never failing God.
How funny that (within the theological blather) you are so arrogant as to believe that YOU have staked Christian claims on Jehovah's out-look!

:)

I suggest that (within the theology) Jehovah has other ideas.

Beatification is not only a silly ritual of your church, it is a complete waste of major money that could have fed and COULD feed a lot of starving people.
Beatification does not cost a penny, silly women. Google Catholic Charities, we feed plenty of starving people.
Thanks be to God.

lol. you always post a reply and it never has anything to do with what is being discussed. so why are you so ignorant. I remember just a few days ago, you called me a moron.

THE DISCERNMENT IS ABOUT KNOWING THE SPIRIT OF ANOTHER PERSON AMONG OTHER THINGS

it has nothing to do with the Holy Scriptures!

What Is Spiritual Discernment? Spiritual discernment is calling on the Holy Spirit to lead or give direction on a matter

UH HUH!
You want me to buy into the idea that you can be Catholic and humble all in one package???
Dream on!
People that place high value on their own religious cults can not BE at all humble. Their urge to protect their own religious dogmas keeps them fully loaded with arrogance, and right-fighting attitudes.
It's taught in Catholic church one needs to be humble. I just said I was told I was humble which i guess I am, just telling what I was told and thought, wow what a nice compliment.
Have you heard of the 7 deadly sins? This is what we don't want: greed, lust, gluttony, pride, sloth, wrath, envy. I think what you describe as attitudes isn't that at all. When you believe in something so deeply it's human nature to fight back to protect your beliefs. No arrogance, no dogmas.
Like if you have children and someone bad mouths them, wouldn't you fight back to protect the children even if you knew what was said maybe correct. Of course you would fight and if you found out what was said is true and doesn't fit your style, wouldn't you correct that child in private.

Whats with all the Jehovah stuff? Is it true this name in in bible more times than Jesus name? Are you a witness June? What about JW prediction, 1976 the world will come to an end, yr. 2000 the world will come to an end. It did come to an end for some, those that passe away. But I don't think this is what was meant. do you know? knower of all.:)

I remember when our family would go to mass. My mother, father and the other catholics in the church would give that long, cold, catholic dead stare at people in church that only went on Christmas and Easter, making them feel unwelcome.
I couldn't wait for christmas and easter masses. I knew what was going to happen everytime.
Now we know where u got all your hatred, must run in the family.

Hey Anthony MN, did Jesus say.....I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me shall not hunger. John 6:35
Let's say you answer yes....if so, did Jesus literally mean you will never hunger for another meal the rest of your life? Have you been hungry since you last ate the transubstantiated body of Jesus?
If so, why? Apparently Jesus was not being "literal" when he said, "I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me shall not hunger."
1. Bread
I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me shall not hunger. John 6:35
2. Light (Anthony MN, was Jesus a "literal" light like a bulb?)
I am the light of the world; he who fallows Me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12
3. Gate (Anthony MN, was Jesus a "literal" gate?)
I am the gate; if anyone enters through Me, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. John 10:9
4. Good Shepherd (Anthony MN, was Jesus ever a shepherd?)
I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for His sheep. John 10:11
5. Resurrection and Life
I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me shall live even if he dies. John 11:25
6. Way (Anthony MN, did Jesus become a direction like North, South etc.?)
I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me. John 14:6
7. True vine (Anthony MN, did Jesus become a vine?)
I am the true vine, and My Father is the vine dresser. John 15:1
His disciples knew He was speaking metaphorically in these examples.

The only time His disciples left and followed Him no more was in the bread of life discourse in John 6 when Jesus emphatically and repeatedly insisted His flesh was real food and His blood real drink and that we must eat His flesh and drink His blood to have eternal life. The teaching was too hard for them to accept. I guess it's to hard for you too.

Far too many people have already committed suicide because the arrogant mental self manipulation of their own religious mumbo-jumbo drove them insane.

However ... it's your choice to keep on winding yourself up in your own mental tightrope, or to in turn set your self free and take life as it comes.

Metaphor is only handy for those who don't want to take scriptures as a course of taking the words in the literal sense ... as in "carnal sense."

It's the game played on self by con-artists that know no better.

"It is simply a practice of measuring all 'doctrine' by the scriptures."
I've asked a thousand times who the authority is in protestantism that gets to measure the doctrine. The only answer I've ever gotten is "the Holy Spirit tells me." Why does the Holy Spirit guide protestants to conflicting truths? If every protestant gets to decide for themselves, how can anyone know the truth for sure?
----------
It is like any other 'ism' when investigated by man...there are various 'opinions'...and then there is the truth. A first grader would have a different definition of ecology, for instance, than a college graduate who specialized in the subject.
You will tell me that Catholics all say the same thing. True, to the extent that you have a memorized catechism. Mormons, J.W.'s Islamist, and all other 'religions' are the same way. However, get any one of you into a discussion that is not memorized, and you have as many different positions as any one else.
Many religious people are like parrots and monkeys (repetitious and laughable). They spout what they have memorized, and say, "I think...", but they do not know what the Bible really has to say. Thus all the different 'opinions'.
That is why Jesus said, "IT IS WRITTEN".(Go thou, and do likewise.:)
Jesus said that the Holy Spirit, "when He is come, will guide you in ALL TRUTH." Do you believe Him (the Truth)?
KayMarie
Yes, I believe Him.

As I said, no one, not even you is this latest attempt, has been able to give an answer. I'd ask that you try again:

Why does the Holy Spirit guide protestants to conflicting truths?

Two bible scholars, people who have studied the bible for many decades, believe the bible teaches two different things. Who decides?

Speaking of being out of one's mind, anyone who thinks they can pick up a bible, study it for a few years and then think they speak for God is out of his mind.

Do you really think that the Apostles were unchanged after three years with Jesus? They were still human...but they were GODLY men, who preached a life-transforming gospel.

Never implied they were "unchanged". They remained sinners even after 3 years with Christ.

I suggest you don't pick on Michael for recognizing the hypocrisy in what used to be his, and is now your religion.

The hypocrisy is plain for anyone that wants to see.

My father was raised by strict Catholic parents, who chastised him when as a boy he went to them for "help." They told him that they never wanted to hear him say such things again about a "man of GOD."

They believed the priest and dissed their own son as a liar.

It's quite human to want what comforts the self.

Men on their thrones felt all-powerful as the looked down on others as being offenders of gods and at their selves as being servants of gods.

THAT is religion in a nutshell.

They are not conflicting truths because not one of us knows the mind of God. He is leading and although it may seem in conflict His ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts than ours. We as human beings can only see the beginning of the parade but God sees the whole parade. We are to wait on the Lord. He will reveal His plan to us in due time. We are called to trust and obey.
