Jews would not have had Catholic rituals.

The fact that the word "apostle" thrills you ... is only because you believe that Jewish apostles left Judaism for your Catholic religion ... which is very silly indeed.

It's theolo-unlogical flatulence.

Do you honestly believe that had Jesus lived, he would have left his position as a Jewish rabbi to become a follower of Catholicism???

HONESTLY???

Keep in mind ... you are on candid camera, and that that scenario would be somewhat comparable to your pope leaving to join the Protestant religion.

I'm sure as long as they believe their savior receives the right message, they won't be too concerned about whether they do or don't pronounce the r.

Nonsense.

They had Beano in the first century.

If you are USING the KJV bible, how do you know what scriptures are all about in the Catholic bible???

Only Martin Luther was brave enough to use the lie-filled Catholic bible for both of his religions.

The Protestants pray that their KJV that was based on the Catholic bible managed to filter out all of the evil.

Stupid heaven hogs.

Being raised by a Christian mother and a father who believed in reincarnation and both believed in the plain old word God, I never had any fancy titles for a god.

Had I been raised as s polytheistic Hebrew, I would have had a surplus of titles for my gods.

I was short-"changed."

Just read a great thought.

Jesus,Taught such a,simple salvation..

For God sent His,only begotten Son, that He who believes,has eternal life..

So simple a child understands....

Man has,made salvation utterly complex, with theology , ritual, exclusionary practices,..it defies the simple teachings,of Our Lord.

Shame,on us

..we forget Jesus,was,preaching, not to the authoritarians, priests,Pharisees,of His,day

but to the masses.who followed Him..who heard,Him tell of heaven and of the Father....

He,did not teach confusion, technicalities, or anything like it.

Um, not really. Judaism is filled with "theology, ritual, and practices", and as a practicing Jew, Christ participated in all of it.

"Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus — The Smackdown"

I can’t help but think, in the midst of all this, that this hating-religion-loving-Jesus thing is the logical consequence of Protestantism. For a 21st-century Protestant looking at a thousand-something churches, I imagine there is an immense temptation to say “It’s all a wash. I will follow Christ, not a religion,” and be done with it.

So onto the first bit of silliness — the idea that Jesus came to abolish religion. Unforgivable. He literally said the opposite:“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.” What were the Law and the Prophets? Judaism. What is Judaism? A religion. What did Jesus specifically say he was NOT going to abolish? That’s right. A religion.

This is made apparent not only in the words, but in the actions of Jesus Christ. Whether you believe in the sacraments or not, there is no doubt that Christ established ritual. It’s one thing to ignore Christ’s statement to “eat my body.” It’s another to ignore his command to “do this in memory of me.” Christ commanded that we have ritual. The early church followed this ritual, they obeyed his command to “do this in memory of me.”

Does the mere Christ-follower-religion-hater obey Christ’s command to eat his body and drink his blood, and to do it in memory of Him? I do not mean ask whether they believe in the True Presence of Christ in the bread and wine, I simply mean to ask whether they follow the ritual Christ established at all? If not, it would seem that to be a Christ-follower is to ignore the commands Christ bids you follow. And there’s more of this Christ guy being ridiculously religious.

He established a priesthood in the Apostles. If that word freaks you out, I’ll rephrase: He gave certain men very distinct roles.

Christ gave them the power to forgive sins:”If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have been retained.”(John 20:23)

He gave men power to make decisions concerning doctrine:”I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”(Matthew 18:18)

He built a Church:“And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”(Matthew 16:18)

He called men to the sacrament of Baptism. These are not things available to the mere Christ-follower, unless he truly believes that whatever he binds on earth will be bound in heaven, and all the rest. So knowing that Christ so clearly established a Church, with rituals, with priests, and with sacraments, our man’s statement “What if I told you Jesus came to abolish religion?” can only be answered with,“What if He told you you were wrong?”
