There is a Greek CATHOLIC Church as well as a Greek Orthodox Church. Not all "Orthodox split with Rome". Some did then came back. One (Maronite) never left.

Well i don't think you can call them Orthodox if they are in communion with Rome. They'd be Catholic. But from what I hear, the Liturgy of the Eucharist is exactly the same in your Mass as say the Byzantine Catholic. Pope Francis remarked to Bartholomew I awhile back (if I remember correctly) "put all the theologians on an island and the schism would end". I'm paraphrasing that.

In what years were the Greek and RCC one church? There was no RCC until the fourth century, so please prove the churches were the same.
Have you ever heard me say the earth is only 5,000 years old? You're acting like an 8 year old with your assertions and accusations.
There was no RC until the 4th century?? Where you'd get that idea? Like i said.... i dont think you know what "RC" means. When i say the Orthodox helped compile the Bible, I mean the Catholic churches of the east, before they split. Hey man, it is confusing...and i dont know everything about it. Like i told Sera, i just learned that every Orthodox church has a Catholic one too....
I do know this: If people are going to debate which Church Jesus started; and who compiled the Bible etc, then it could only be between Catholic and Orthodox. Protestants have no horse in this race. And the very new "Bible only evangelical born againers" definately have no claim. Catholics and Orhtodox have a rich history dating to the Apostles....... LOADED with artifacts, archeology, documentation of their existence in every decade since Christ. You all have 93 yr old Billy Graham. You see what I'm saying? There is no evidence of people who shared your interpretations ever existing. Do you really believe the Roman Roman Pope silenced y'all for 2,000 yrs? If u think that, rent room from guest at her compound....I heard she makes killer omelets.

Oh, you are so right, there is plenty evidence that you are LOADED with pagan rites and rituals, and even kept records of such - which Jesus would NEVER support - and that your church murdered anyone and all it could find that did not do as the pope told them to do.
-
Once again, for the those who care to really understand that Christ will not support that sort of institution ... evidence and history is of no spiritual value when it is Pagan, because THEN - in that very instant - it has ceased to be Christian.

Truth comes from the Bible alone. Not from the mouth of one who would compromise with paganism in order to win converts, which is what the pope truly has done. Time and again, pope after pope.

I told him that Jesus didn't have a desk and then he comes back and says Jesus didn't and wasn't a Preacher. everyone who knows ANYTHING about Jesus knows that the First thing that he did was quote the words of Is. concerning himself and the Anointing of the Holy Ghost upon Him.

If there is "anything Pagan" of which there is not and of which there is "no proof", then you bible only Protestant fundamentalists have captured and inherited these so-called rituals ( as well) such as Christmas and the Christmas holidays....Idnorance of the TRUTH of TRUE Church history is one of "your greatest Protestant virtues" like it is with most anti-Catholic bible verse (spinning) make-it-up-as-you--go" editorialists!!!!

There is no evidence outside your church that proves Peter was your pope. You may live in the largest compound on the planet but that doesn't make it the "only true" compound. Even your eucharist evolved into what it is today. Why would that be the case if Peter had taught your popes how to conduct the ritual in the first century? Why no indication of Linus being more than a helper to Paul in scripture?

I don't know everything about your history but, you obviously do not know everything either. Your church's secret teaching by Peter just say Peter's real teachings of Christ weren't good enough.

Quick Fact Details:
Formed: The exact date of the beginning of the Roman Catholic Church is indeterminable. While the belief system recognized as Christianity is in place by the first century, institutional structures developed over time. Nor is it possible to distinguish Catholicism as a separate tradition until it can be differentiated from other Christian traditions (most notably, Eastern Orthodoxy and Protestantism). Scholars recognize a variety of significant institutional, theological, and cultural markers in this development: 325 Council of Nicea. The first post-apostolic ecumenical council of the Christian community at which Church leaders formed a creedal statement of belief recognized universally.
381 First Council of Constantinople. This council amended and ratified the Nicene Creed, resulting in the version used by Christian churches around the world.

440-461 Pope Leo I. Many historians suggest that Pope Leo is the first to claim universal jurisdiction over the worldwide Church, thus initiating the rise of the papacy, a uniquely Roman Catholic structure.
451 The Council of Chalcedon. This is the first occasion of an institutional division within Christianity, as those who did not adhere to the conclusions of the Council (referred to as Oriental Orthodox) separated.
1054 The Great Schism. Though the Eastern and Western branches of the Church had long been divided over theological, cultural, linguistic, and ecclesiological disputes, the separation was formalized in 1054, thus creating the first large-scale division within Christendom.
16th century The term "Roman Catholic" is not generally used until the Protestant Reformation, and some historians see the Council of Trent (1545-1563) as a centralizing movement within Catholicism that enhanced the authority of Rome.

Sacred Texts: The Roman Catholic Church includes in the Old Testament several deuterocanoncial books that Protestants rejected. The New Testament is the same as that used by Christians everywhere.

You cannot produce any post here in this forum where I have ever said any thing derogatory about you...or to you... NOT ONE.......My objective here is to confront with the word ..

Any one that spends their time ranting against the Bible and attempting to replace it with their own conjecture needs a SPIRITUAL TRANSFUSION OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS..

JESUS SAID
Mar 1:14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
Mar 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand:

repent ye, and believe the gospel.

IF YOU HAVEN'T OBEYED the WORDS OF JESUS .. HAVE DONE YOUR FIRST WORKS .you are not a Christian....

SO WHATEVER YOU DO ..is moot.....

JESUS TOLD PAUL ON THE DAMASCUS ROAD....WHAT THE PURPOSE OF HIS CALLING WAS

Act 26:15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.

Act 26:16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;



Act 26:17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now now I send thee,

( GOD'S PURPOSE HAS NOT CHANGED EVEN THO THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS ATTEMPTED TO CHANGE IT...)

Act 26:18 To open their eyes,

and to turn them from darkness to light, and

from the power of Satan unto God,

that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and

inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

Even the pagan name Pontifex Maximus was dragged through history until it became the title of your popes. Your pagan title is never mentioned in scripture.

Your vicar of Christ has evolved into what it is today.Christ's Words never change. Why does your church have so many drastic changes throughout it's history if it were really following the secret biblical teachings of Peter?

the catholics on this Forum have been told that Peter was in Babylon for years, yet they don't accept what the Word of God and Peter himself says.

they will try and change the word of God to suit their false irreligious system, by claiming that Babylon was a code name for Roma, yet they are silent when we tell them that Jesus is going to destroy Mystery Babylon which sets on seven hills. and then they try and claim that that mystery Babylon is Jerusalem. and then we tell them that it cant be Jerusalem since Jerusalem cant be seen from the Sea.

some day, it might sink into their heads that lies cant be proven to be the TRUTH.

Those in self-idolizing cults appreciate the savior-myths, as they can preach (for instance) "Jesus said' that only Christians are God's favorites ... while Hindus say that "Krishna said" that only Hindus are the gods favorites.

Of course the monotheistic Jews went right to the source and used the term "Jehovah-GOD said" that only Jews are his chosen few.

The self-indulgent games people of religion play are worth the STUDY!
