Jimmy Pattison is nobody's fool. He gets rid of the business employees that he judges aren't performing up to his standards.

But God just sits back and watches the scripture-users fight and fight and fight ... and God does nothing to make the liars shut up.

I suggest God is far too lenient. However he does have a plan, but rumor has it that it unfolds in the hereafter.

Isn't it ironic that YOU Ox , are using the same New Testament ( cannibal -lingo) that the many of the "fallen away" Early Christians used when they "'rejected Christs (own spoken Words) when He said " This is my Body (which is REAL food and this is my blood which is REAL drink". For unless you eat my body and drink my blood "which is REAL" you CANNOT have eternal life! This only goes to show every one of us Catholics how the heresies, lies, and distorting of the TRUTH of TRUE history and biblical mis-interpretation of Sacred Scripture is "repeating itself" in in the "21st century " bible only Protestant contradicting and inconsistent "man-made" denominations!!
Cannibal: A person who eats the flesh of other humans.

Cathlics say they eat the actual flesh of Christ....your catechism and encyclopedia say they do...you say you do...facts that cannot be refuted..

Plus the Bible teaches not to drink blood....you guys ignore this: Then the LORD said to Moses,“You must never eat or drink blood—neither you nor the foreigners living among you.'

I wonder about those angels in the sky. They are supposed to be helping the god give miracles to humans on earth.

The other day a car (out of control) just missed a woman who was walking ... and no doubt that meant that for that woman the angels created a miracle. However the same car ran over a few other pedestrians killing them outright.

God gets those angels to work in mysterious ways.

Sarcasm intended.

YUMMY! Don't knock it until you've tried it.

The cannibals call human meat "long pig."

By the way, the cannibals thought that those who killed and didn't eat the meat were wasteful.

And:

Ac 15:20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.

That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.

As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication.

Catlics ignore the teaching of the Bible not to drink blood....they are proud to say they do so every week!!!

leaders "father." In doing so we follow Paul’s example: "I became your father in Jesus Christ through the gospel" (1 Cor. 4:15).
The apostles, fulfilling Jesus’ will, ordained bishops, priests, and deacons
and thus handed on their apostolic ministry to them—the fullest degree of ordination to the bishops, lesser degrees to the priests and deacons."

Rose, what the hell is wrong with you? Do you really think a faithful Catholic would NOT refer a non-believer to a priest in order to be received into the Church? Are you still unable to grasp the concept that Catholics believe part of becoming a Christian, part of the process of accepting Christ includes receiving the sacraments? And that for one to receive the sacraments they become part of the church?

Sorry, Anthony. One of the things we Protestants believe is that our speech should be pure...and certainly when talking to a lady (even if she believes differently).

Yes, I know that 'hell' is a place, but you used it as a swear word.(Scares me.)

Those who idolize their religious dogmas often preach about the evil on earth ... yet they choose to keep bringing more babies into life on the same earth where they preach that evil thrives and multiplies.

And many are certain it is "God's will" that they be fruitful and multiply.

They love to tell their stories and hope others will take notice and praise them in the notion that the stories are based on absolute truth.

Humans are pathetic animals "in deed."

A hundred bible verses showing St. Peter's authority and your only comment is regarding one, and even that one you get wrong.

"If we go to Acts 15, we read that there was a lot of debate in the Church about whether Gentile converts needed to be circumcised. After the debate, Peter "rose" and declared that circumcision was not necessary. James was not even in the picture at this point. Peter made an authoritative decision about the doctrinal question, and no one questioned him. In fact, after Peter spoke it says "all kept silent." When you read the Greek phrase, it is in the aorist tense, which means the silence was the effect of Peter's definitive teaching.

After Peter settles the issue, Paul and Barnabas speak in favor of Peter's teaching. Only then does James come in. A few things about James' discourse. First, James was the bishop of Jerusalem during the council, and it is common for a bishop to speak in favor of the pope's teaching at a regional or ecumenical council. This is what James does. He agrees with Peter's definitive teaching. Second, James begins speaking, not about the doctrinal issue, but about whether the Gentiles should obey the Noachide laws. At the end of James' speech, he says "it is my judgment." The Greek here (ego krino) means that James was giving a personal opinion about a pastoral issue, and recommends that the Gentiles obey the laws of Noah so as to more easily fraternize with the Jews.

"So we see that Peter is the one who rules definitively on the question of doctrine, and all kept silent. His bishops then spoke in favor of his teaching, acknowledging that Peter was indeed the authority in the Church. No one questions Peter's judgment. Then we have James who speaks in favor of Peter's teaching by giving an opinion on a pastoral issue. Hardly a challenge to the authority of Peter. You should also point out to your friend that Acts 15 disproves the doctrine of sola Scriptura. If Peter would have relied upon the Scriptures, he would have concluded that Gentiles had to be circumcised, since all the Patriarchs and prophets were, the apostles were, and even Jesus was. But Peter, by virtue of his authority, decides the issue as the chief shepherd of the Church (and the decision was not based on the Scriptures)."

Most likely it's part of some gnostic text written several centuries later. It's a distraction only for anti-Christian atheists/agnostics such as our dear deluded friend Michael.
