I was talking about the words Peter spoke.
Do you read and study Bible scripture?
You have no idea "what peter spoke" -- all your sources are bogus. In fact, peter herself is a man made entity.

I saw a few minutes...airport closed since yesterday...didn't know,we gave millions, but not surprised...the media talks about Gaza,folks killed while the terrorists,lob rockets Willy Billy into Israel ....,and hide behind non combatants and in mosques , if there really are ANY. Disgusting ..but the UN blasts the Israelis ...awful ...

Since when do we negotiate with terrorists, which is who controls things. But then it's,Kerry speaking for this administration..actually surprised he goes,near anywhere with conflict ...

It is a very personal decision. I went to Catholic school in Hong Kong and I am going again in America. I believe that the Catholic teachings are the only true teachings because I am a Catholic. A Lutheran or a Baptist would think differently. But for me the Catholic church is the one true church.

You wouldn't know what interpretation is correct because you don't read the Bible. It's how church leaders keep their lies and legends goiing .
So please tell me " what do you know about ANYONE else's faith and salvation and commitment to Jesus Christ other than your own ability ( or inability) to quote (or better yet mis-quote and misinterpret Sacred Scripture (right along) the the rest of your other 42,200+ contradicting and inconsistent "self-appointed Bible Only interpreting "hack" preachers, ministers and self-proclaimed experts????????..For your information, being a former bible only Protestant for over 35 years---I grew up reading, studying and researching the bible:----2 years of confirmation bible study. One year of bible school, 4years bible University study , 2 years of pre-theology bible and Church history research and later 7 years of bible study fellowship --so it is obvious that you are talking through your Protestant " Martin Luther monocle"----in other words : a You have absolutely " no idea" as to what you are talking about which is " no surprise " to ANY of us Catholics who know the TRUTH of the TRUE interpretation of the Bible which came in 397 AD from the Early Church Father " who wrote it and interpreted it!!!!!

Seems to me they do more than cherry pick ..especially GIF...on any subject ..it's enlightening .
I just got a new bible that was Chronological..very interesting especially for the OT, seeing the order things happened..lot of timelines and other information...
Unfortunately not large print
http://www.amazon.com/Chronological-Life-Appl...
Anyway HOJO ..just a thought.....your first Church was either horrid as you seem to hate it, despite that it taught you love for Christ ....I am grateful for what the nuns taught me about Him
And I don't hate the RCC.
....the
Non Catholic churches I went to didn't mention CATHOLICS at all, except a few questions to me personally by a few,people, and no one put it down...I am really dumbfounded by what you say about whatever Church you were in
I know,folks,on this board don't like the RCC but it's topix and the headline attracts it , I guess.
But I never heard a,sermon that even mentioned Catholics, even the ones I wAtch on TV ..so I can't imagine from your posts what on earth services you went to ...I'm really curious.
Do your old friends throw,rocks,at you for now being Catholic? Do you constantly repeat your set phrases,AT THEM ...or is it just here you have no respect for others,who believe .
35 years is among time to stay among hateful folk ...it's puzzling ....again only going by your posts you really hate that Church ...
To clarify your comments: I DO NOT hate the Bible only Church that I was connected with for over 35 years--despite what you might think....In fact--I am thankful for being raised in my bible only Church because the more that I studied sacred scripture (along with researching and studying over 2000 years of Church History, the more I begin to come to the knowledge and realize the TRUTH of The TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ and that HE was the one who initiated, formed and authenticated ONLY ONE TRUE (Universal) Church and it was Catholic!!!
In addition, my family still attend that bible only Church in California and whenever on a visit, I will attend Church with them----however---always making sure that it does not interfere with worshipping Jesus Christ at both daily and Sunday Mass.......The main difference is that the Catholic Church is the ONLY CHURCH that possesses the Fullness of the Faith and the Fullness of the TRUTH in Jesus Christ (only in and through) HIS One TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church---which open up to the Fullness in "growing in the faith and Salvation of Our Lord...

No!!! From Sacred Tradition that comes from Christ and the Apostles through BOTH the written and the Oral a Tradition 2Thess 2:15 which has been entrusted to the Church that Jesus built upon the rock of Peter ( Matt 16: 18,19, ITim 3:15. the ineffable wisdom of a God is made known through this Universal Church Eph 3:9-10..........and that Church which Jesus HIMSELf formed and initiated was Catholic

.....I am sure catholics sit right beside you Evrey Sunday in church that don't follow all the doctrines. Cherry pickers.
....Cherry pick he says!!!...Hahahahahaha!
It is up to them to ( personally) deal with their OWN rebellious and defiant nature in going against the TRUTH of the teachings of the Catholic Church...It is one thing to be a Catholic ( in name only),,,It is another to be commited and faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church that Jesus Himself handed down to His Apostles and to the succeeding Bishops that have followed Him during the at past 2000 years.........There is always the inconsistent and self-interpreting (man made) Protestant Church (down the street) that they can join and "do whatever they want......

And I must add that for any priest to blatantly accuse a child of child molestation should be immediately defrocked. I am so sorry this was done to you.
Priests aren't there to accuse anyone of anything. You should go to your bishop with this.
....Never stated I was molested. Focus on what I said.

Gal 2:11But when Peter came to Antioch, I had to oppose him to his face, for what he did was very wrong.
11. Peter—"Cephas" in the oldest manuscripts Paul's withstanding Peter is the strongest proof that the former gives of the independence of his apostleship in relation to the other apostles, and upsets the Romish doctrine of Peter's supremacy. The apostles were not always inspired; but were so always in writing the Scriptures. If then the inspired men who wrote them were not invariably at other times infallible, much less were the uninspired men who kept them. The Christian fathers may be trusted generally as witnesses to facts, but not implicitly followed in matters of opinion.
You think because Paul rebuked Peter, then Peter wasn't the first Pope?
Listen, oh ignorant one, we have never..ever made a claim that our Popes are untouchable because they are Popes..
Francis could technically be publicly rebuked by Cardinal Dolan if he messes up.. This has happened to Popes in the past. This reply is not for you btw. You are one of the most ignorant human beings I've ever encountered. This reply is for anyone else who you might lead astray by misusing Sacred Scripture. We've explained a thousand times what "infallibility" means. Yet, you continuously misrepresent our teachings as if you never heard anything. This is ridiculous what you do. Its just like a conniving little demon. The bottom line is : when it came down to a final decision on matters of faith and morals, Peter didnt error and neither did his 266 successors.

I am sincerely glad to hear that as your posts,make that church sound awful.Seriously.

I am grateful for the nuns that taught me about Jesus and His life. Despite what anyone thinks, I don't hate your new Church..I posted a long post to USA which says what I believe regarding the RCC. I believe many Catholics love Jesus dearly ...but that does not mean others,do not believe in and love Him as,much.

I believe God uses us all to spread His word. And we should be closer. Some of my family is Catholic also.

Again glad you don't hate your old Church

Your "own personal" confession of faith parallels the words of St Peter in the book of Matthew when Jesus asked the Apostles "who do you say that I am". Peter proclaimed Jesus as the Messiah and Jesus responded::: "flesh and blood has not revealed this to you except my Father in heaven.....Yes---Lin!....Flesh and blood has not revealed to you Jesus Christ and His One True Apostolic Catholic Church (except) if it had not been for Our a Father and Christs Father in heaven"...As-former bible only Protestant The "Spirit of a God through His Son Jesus has blessed you with Spiritual insight and revelation of the TRUTH of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ manifested in and through His One True Catholic Church

You too HOJO.

I really feel that should persecution come in our lifetime, there will be no distinction made among denominations. Maybe then we will find what we,have,in common beliefs.

Some,of us can relate, at least in real life to a,shared belief in CHRIST ...I hope so .

I agree. They promote Peter and say nothing about the Words of Christ. This somehow makes sense to them.
Do you think the Catholics were given a canon of Scripture and after careful study, decided that Peter was the first Pope etc etc? You have to get it out of your mind on what Scripture is. Its difficult for me to understand why you all believe as if the apostles simply handed out a few of their writings. Nowhere in the Bible is the protestant approach to the Bible taught. And the funny thing is: even under your verse verse verse microscope, Catholicism still passes with flying colors.
"You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my Church". From there on, Simon was no longer called Simon, he was called Rock. In the Book of Acts we read "Peter stood up; Peter spoke". It never says "Simon (who's faith is like a rock) stood up".
