He's right, the people God called to be the 'true church' are the 'true church'. We are common day evangelists trying to get you to get you saved eternally through Jesus, why don't you believe Jesus, why do you follow man-made rituals instead of following Him?
Oh, you mean "once saved always save"! This is just another one of your "fundamental distortions, twisting and manipulation of the TRUE interpretation of the bible by some self-interpreting fundamentalist "hack" preacher. As a former Protestant that was raised as a bible only "fundie" NO-WHERE in the bible is there "any" biblical truth to this this nonsense of yours.......We as Catholics all know there is eternal Salvation in Jesus Christ however (as Paul instructs us) " it is a process of "running the race, fighting the good fight and keeping the faith". AND as Paul concludes---"not everyone finishes the race". Please don' try and dupe cradle Catholics with this OSAS Protestant mulatkey ,,, Salvation comes through Jesus Christ. Through His Church and not guaranteed to everyone except by Gods Grace. Many have excepted Christ with good intensions and fallen away, turning their back and rejecting Jesus'
offer of Salvation. Paul also is definitely clear on this !!!!!

No, none and not one Roman Catholic church is Christian.
Did Rome re-write this history as well? The book of Acts was written by Luke not Ignatius.
Acts 11:25-26, 25 "So Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, 26 and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. For a whole year they met with the church and taught a great many people. And in Antioch the disciples were first called Christians."
Christians, yes. Roman Catholics, absolutely not.

Hi oldg,
I know you think we Roman Catholics aren't Christian, but I was wondering if you believe these guys aren't too:
Latin Catholics, Greek, Armenian Apostolic, Syrian, Ethiopian, Ukrainian, Byzantine, Maronite, and many other eastern Catholic and Orthodox Christians?
How about Lutheran, Methodist and Anglican. Are they Christian?
Who is a Christian and why do you single out the Catholic Church in Rome? I asked you this before but you ran away.

Every sect your pope controls is non-Christian. Why? Because they are guided by and follow the rantings of your pope and not the teachings of Jesus Christ. PERIOD!

The Roman Catholic church IS the Roman Empire wrapped in a cloak of Christianity. This began with your founding father Constantine. There was nothing Christian about Constantine or the Roman Empire and there is certainly nothing "truly" Christian about the Roman Catholic organization you call a "church".

Who is a Christian?

John 3:3-7, 3 "Jesus answered him,“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 4 Nicodemus said to him,“How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?” 5 Jesus answered,“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you,‘You must be born again.’ "

Acts 16:25-31, 25 "About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them, 26 and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken. And immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone's bonds were unfastened. 27 When the jailer woke and saw that the prison doors were open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself, supposing that the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul cried with a loud voice,“Do not harm yourself, for we are all here.” 29 And the jailer called for lights and rushed in, and trembling with fear he fell down before Paul and Silas. 30 Then he brought them out and said,“Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” 31 And they said,“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.”

Ephesians 2:8-9, 8 "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast."

Yeah but i listed many who don't follow the Pope (Orthodox sects). Yet they believe in the things we do.
It sounds like to you, the Deacon Oldgee, that nobody prior to the reformation was Christian? Except for the Apostles, but not their students i presume.

Seriously, don't run away like a chicken. Don't shove our Bible verses in our faces and run. Be a man and justify your radical theology.

My God does not need a bank.
My God does not use diplomatic immunity to cover-up child abuse.
My God does not believe the child should be punished for the sins of the father.
Do you think THAT is moral?
Of course not.
Proof. Even you believe your god is immoral. But you have been programed since early childhood, Sad.

Like i said, i don't enjoy participating in your psychological gimmick. I don't know what's going on internally with you, but your misconceptions about what we Catholics believe is second to none. And the fact that people take time to clarify certain misconceptions to you (even a Catholic Priest did) and you completely ignore it, shows you have some other 'issues' that have nothing to do with sound theology or science.

I have set you straight on this matter...days ago.....take your crs pills
Still no answers? Let's try again.
What languages did Jesus use when He spoke during His ministry on earth. Hebrew? He was a Rabbi. Aramaic? It was a commonly used language in the area at the time. Latin? The Romans were the secular authority. Other languages? I don't know and neither do you. Whatever languages He used, His words might have been written and translated into a number of languages before they were written in Greek and then in Latin. They were eventually translated into a variety of other languages including English.
It's true that I am thoroughly unfamiliar with Koine Greek. It's also true that I trust the English translations of the Bibles that I use, and have no need to translate the English into Greek, skipping Latin in the process, so that I can translate it back into English with a meaning that is different than the meaning provided by the experts who translated the Bible into English from Latin in the first place. You evidently find it necessary to change the expert English translation you already have before you will accept the Bible. Why is that?

If the Catholic church father Ignatius came up with the word Christian, I suggest that he had the only rights to the word Christian.

All other supposed branches can't grow off that tree, unless Ignatius gave them permission ... which he no doubt did NOT.

But then the same should hold true for Judaism. The faithful Jews did not give the break-away Jews known as Catholics permission to use their word Judaism to create the word Catholicism. So the Catholic {{{branch}}} was stolen from the Jews and it is therefore a false branch.

And if we go back further in thought, we will see that the monotheistic Jews branched off of polytheism ... so it's plagiarized branch was also rotten.

And if we could go back to the start of man-created religion, I suggest that the root of the first tree was created out of imagination.

And there you have it ... religion HAS no roots other than IN imagination.

But as much as you preach about Ramen being kind of heart, you still have not addressed the issue of why such a kind-hearted god would create a realm where all of his animals must suffer in order to try to survive and reproduce more animals to suffer in order to reproduce and suffer ... and on and on and on.

Until you stop hiding your god's intentions behind your fancy words that he is all kind and loving ... I suggest you aren't being forth-RIGHT with us.

I suggest that it didn't pay to put your god on a pedestal, as both he and you are "bound" to take the fall that always follows the pride.

What don't I understand.I understand that even YOU can't explain it, because it's gibberish, sorry.

What you call a psychological gimmick is a great term for what the CC does to skate around its mystical claim of "perfect teachings."

It takes a real psychological gimmick in order to believe that opposite views are somehow the same.

Show us one example of CC teaching before 1800 or 1900 which states that Protestants can be saved?

It's a CC psychological gimmick that you can't explain away. Why not? Most Catholics don't even try. Because historical fact -- major church councils and Papal Bulls -- are well recorded. To say they didn't mean what they said hundreds of years ago only works in a delusion.
