No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.

My reason for being here, is, to defend my idea that all religion is trouble-making nonsensical gibberish.
Well when a church makes the claim as the tile in this forum it better be able to defend that claim....and no to the second part of your post. I agree with some things from both sides on some things I don't from both sides.

Whatever tends to weaken love to God, or love to the brethren, tends to defeat the end of the commandment. The design of the gospel is answered, when sinners, through repentance towards God and faith in Jesus Christ, are brought to exercise Christian love. And as believers were righteous persons in God's appointed way, the law was not against them. But unless we are made righteous by faith in Christ, really repenting and forsaking sin, we are yet under the curse of the law, even according to the gospel of the blessed God, and are unfit to share the holy happiness of heaven.

I am so glad that you found the Truth. I understand why those parents could not believe that a 'holy man' would do such things.
I read about Catholic nurses who used a basting instrument, and squirted water into a woman's uterus to 'baptize' an dying infant, so the poor thing would not go to limbo. All the while I was told that all babies went to limbo.?????????

[QOTE who="Liam" We are on the front lines in the reality of Spiritual warfare. Its difficult enough as Catholics to be surrounded by people who hate you. They wanna see your Church exterminated for blasphemy. They want the Pope humiliated and stripped of his vestments. They mock us whenever possible; would spat on us if had the opportunity; they bear false witness, mock our devotion to Mary, ridicule the Blessed Sacrament, flip the sacred scriptures against us; they put us on trial in the court of public opinion, hoping others will also turn against us!
I love it! This could only be the Church that Jesus started. Glad to be a part of it!
We Catholics are fighting a real battle, and we got you bible waving knuckleheads undermining us at every turn. Like our annoying little brothers who won't shut up. You wanna pick apart our sacred scriptures as if God's suddenly revealing it to you after 2,000??

More nastiness for LTM from St. Justin Martyr, one of the NASTY BOYS in the early Church who was taught by the apostles.
"And we afterwards continually remind each other of these things. And the wealthy among us help the needy; and we always keep together; and for all things wherewith we are supplied, we bless the Maker of all through His Son Jesus Christ, and through the Holy Ghost. And on the day called Sunday, ALL WHO LIVE IN CITIES OR IN THE COUNTRY GATHER TOGETHER IN ONE PLACE, and the memoirs of the apostles or the writings of the prophets are read, as long as time permits; then, when the reader has ceased, the president verbally instructs, and exhorts to the imitation of these good things. Then we all rise together and pray, and, as we before said, when our prayer is ended, bread and wine and water are brought, and the president in like manner offers prayers and thanksgivings, according to his ability, and the people assent, saying Amen; and there is a distribution to each, and a participation of that over which thanks have been given, and to those who are absent a portion is sent by the deacons. And they who are well to do, and willing, give what each thinks fit; and what is collected is deposited with the president, who succours the orphans and widows and those who, through sickness or any other cause, are in want, and those who are in bonds and the strangers sojourning among us, and in a word takes care of all who are in need. But Sunday is the day on which we all hold our common assembly, because it is the first day on which God, having wrought a change in the darkness and matter, made the world; and Jesus Christ our Saviour on the same day rose from the dead. For He was crucified on the day before that of Saturn (Saturday); and on the day after that of Saturn, which is the day of the Sun, having appeared to His apostles and disciples, He taught them these things, which we have submitted to you also for your consideration."
(NOT INDIVIDUAL GATHERINGS OF CHRISTIANS IN HOME CHURCHES)
So the,ONE,PLACE,they met was,never in a,persons home that was,offered ..??? Really ..it does,not say that Anthony .

The,earliest meetings,WERE,IN HOMES,..or they preached,in public ..the,disciples,stayed in these,hones,at times..

What's,wrong with admitting they did that ...

Sometimes,they also preached,in synagogues,.....But many meetings,WERE in homes,....I thunk that was,ACTUAlly the earliest practice ...

I suggest from what you have posted that if you were handed the position of pope, you would step right into the role as it being worthy of your full attention, and that you would have no problem whatsoever with being waited on hand and foot by servants that come to you at your beck and call.
June

The need to belong to a haughty religion is rather repulsive to me. And honestly, when people try the one-upmanship of their religion over someone else bothers me. But I only rub shoulders with commoners. I doubt if kings would tolerate me being pope(smiles) beaureaucrats would ignore me, and lower level officials would hate me....

I pretty much accept the who, what, and where I am. At this time in my life its enough. Being Pope, I leave to those who like to pontificate....I have to many problems of my own to deal with....

I think one needs to be informed. So the RCC has a rather extensive reading list from which to choose. This makes it hard for most people to filter and fathom what to read. And the Protestant would just stick with their own filtering(commentaries, and writings) on the Bible.

For me, it is good to see through time, what people have written on certain subjects. Namely, obedience to Christ, and the virtues one gains from that obedience.

I think RCCs look at Protestant's restrictions, as having to many branches pruned, so that there is no place for fruit to grow on the tree. And Protestants look at the big tree of the RCC and think it needs massive pruning....

But that is for each of us a personal decision with God doing the pruning....

Peace
