It's really silly enough that the modern Gnostic Christians believe their kindred spirits were the first Christians ... but when the Protestants try to claim that THEIR kindred spirits were the first Christians ... that is beyond ridiculous.

I don't agree with hojo that the Catholics would know universal truth if it stared them right in the face ... but I do believe that the Catholics were the ones to change the Greek word Ihcuc into the word Jesus in order to start their own religion totally foreign to Judaism.

The first consideration that I offer on the subject of the senses is that I have my doubts whether man is provided with all the senses of nature. I see many animals that live a complete and perfect life, some without sight, others without hearing; who knows whether we too do not still lack one, two, three, or many other senses? For if any one is lacking, our reason cannot discover its absence.

Well then John the Baptist didn't have a religion ... so why are Catholics and Protestants still fighting over who Jesus favors?

You people are just looking for a fight.

[Human Beings Have No Knowledge]

The wisest man that ever was, when they asked him what he knew, answered that he knew this much, that he knew nothing. He was verifying what they say, that the greatest part of what we know is the least of those parts that we do know; that is to say that the very thing we think we know is a part, and a very small part, of our ignorance.

That word "apostle" only thrills you because you believe the Jewish apostles converted to Catholicism.

If you thought they had converted to Gnostic Christianity, you would be repulsed by the word "apostle."

Of COURSE it's up to a Protestant to tell you that you are not a child of God unless you become Protestant.

Who else on this forum cares enough about you to want you to be saved???

:)

OH WAIT ... I forgot the modern Gnostic Christians. They want you to become "spiritual" by listening to the wisdom of Jesus "THE" Christ ... that you can only learn from them.

Personal Sin

2014


Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips ...—Isaiah 6:5


When I come into the very presence of God, I do not realize that I am a sinner in an indefinite sense, but I suddenly realize and the focus of my attention is directed toward the concentration of sin in a particular area of my life. A person will easily say,“Oh yes, I know I am a sinner,” but when he comes into the presence of God he cannot get away with such a broad and indefinite statement. Our conviction is focused on our specific sin, and we realize, as Isaiah did, what we really are. This is always the sign that a person is in the presence of God. There is never any vague sense of sin, but a focusing on the concentration of sin in some specific, personal area of life. God begins by convicting us of the very thing to which His Spirit has directed our mind’s attention. If we will surrender, submitting to His conviction of that particular sin, He will lead us down to where He can reveal the vast underlying nature of sin. That is the way God always deals with us when we are consciously aware of His presence.

This experience of our attention being directed to our concentration of personal sin is true in everyone’s life, from the greatest of saints to the worst of sinners. When a person first begins climbing the ladder of experience, he might say,“I don’t know where I’ve gone wrong,” but the Spirit of God will point out some definite and specific thing to him. The effect of Isaiah’s vision of the holiness of the Lord was the directing of his attention to the fact that he was “a man of unclean lips.”“He touched my mouth with it, and said:’Behold, this has touched your lips; your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged’”(Isaiah 6:7). The cleansing fire had to be applied where the sin had been concentrated.

Wisdom from Oswald Chambers

When you are joyful, be joyful; when you are sad, be sad. If God has given you a sweet cup, don’t make it bitter; and if He has given you a bitter cup, don’t try and make it sweet; take things as they come. Shade of His Hand

Proverbs has much to say about fools. They despise wisdom (Proverbs 1:7, 22, 10:21, 23:9); they are right in their own eyes (Proverbs 12:15); they are deceitful (Proverbs 14:8) and scornful (Proverbs 10:23, 14:9). The wise are also given instruction on how to deal with fools in Proverbs. Instructing a fool is pointless because his speech is full of foolishness (Proverbs 15:2, 14) and he does not want wisdom and understanding (Proverbs 18:

Both Psalm 14:1 and Psalm 53:1 read,“The fool says in his heart,‘There is no God.’” Some take these verses to mean that atheists are stupid, i.e., lacking intelligence. However, that is not the only meaning of the Hebrew word translated “fool.” In this text, the Hebrew word is nabal, which often refers to an impious person who has no perception of ethical or religious truth. The meaning of the text is not “unintelligent people do not believe in God.” Rather, the meaning of the text is “sinful people do not believe in God.” In other words, it is a wicked thing to deny God, and a denial of God is often accompanied by a wicked lifestyle. The verse goes on to list some other characteristics of the irreligious:“They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; / there is no one who does good.” Psalm 14 is a study on the universal depravity of mankind.

Many atheists are very intelligent. It is not intelligence, or a lack thereof, that leads a person to reject belief in God. It is a lack of righteousness that leads a person to reject belief in God. Many people do not object to the idea of a Creator, as long as that Creator minds His own business and leaves them alone. What people reject is the idea of a Creator who demands morality from His creation. Rather than struggle against a guilty conscience, some people reject the idea of God altogether. Psalm 14:1 calls this type of person a “fool.”

The Church IS the foundation and pillar of truth IF and ONLY *IF* it REMAINS in the TRUTH! The Catholic church did not remain in the truth - from right out of the starting gates when it IGNORED Jesus' command to "Call No Man Your Father." And she ordered the murder and torture of heretics. THAT is NOT TRUTH! You can't go directly AGAINST what Jesus said and still call it TRUTH!
-
Catholics take too many scriptures out of context and then twist them to suit their purpose. God knows they are doing this and that they HAVE done this since day one. And they even took it upon themselves to execute heretics! Talk about taking stuff out of context!
They thought themselves qualified to do God's job!

Of course not! There would be no way to write everything down - and then who, really, would like to hear about his daily hygiene and such?
BUT ... and this is the IMPORTANT THING .... what WAS written down, was God-breathed, and what was NOT WRITTEN DOWN, as part of the BIBLE, WAS NOT GOD-BREATHED. Therefore: the stuff the popes said ... is NOT GOD-BREATHED.

Not by a long shot - just the opposite in fact! they tried to hide it from the people to keep them from reading it and learning from it, that the Catholic church was not the true church. the RCC MURDERED & TORTURED people for reading the Bible!

Did I say John the Baptist did not have a religion as in: Belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers regarded as creator and governor of the universe? Or did I say the denominations of Protestants and that of the Catholics, had not yet made the scene??

The Bible does not teach Christ favors anyone...and I see no fighting over who He does favor...
