It takes no human reasoning to conjure up what Jesus did,and what the Father accomplished as the only salvation for us all. We Christians have no other ism to follow or be part of,for we know that our passage to eternal life is through the Lord Jesus Christ,a PERSON,not a religion.
I'm sorry I didn't respond to your post to me about the pope's sermon Dan, but I found your criticism to be petty and frankly a bit childish. If we Catholics can endure the countless televangelists and Internet protestant preachers who call themselves "prophets and apostles", I would hope someone as mature in the faith, as I assume you to be, would be able to look beyond a title given the pope by his own congregants.

I don't believe that what you preach is based on anything but nonsense.
Next you will admit in feigned humility that we are ALL sinners ... and then when I ask if you are an active sinner, why you are preaching at me how to not be a sinner ... you won't answer.
I've asked countless questions of you preachers and you ignore my questions again and again.
And that is because you have everything to HIDE.

I had the same problem this morning....

I consider, your posts, quite becoming a person seeking a Christian life. And so I welcome you, in His Name.

Sharing your faith on this forum, will be quite challenging at times, if you extend your time on here.

Each has their own intentions, sometimes hard to ferret out. And it is a challenge at times to do so. Yet I find it a good way to express one's faith.

My one piece of advice is not to believe, or take at face value what everyone writes.

You're a slippery preacher who's very adept at redirection and smoke screens. The issue is, and will remain, YOUR authority to judge whether Catholic teaching is scriptural and true. In the years you've been here never once have you established your authority. Until you do, you are no more to me (or any other Christian) than a trained monkey who knows how to cut and paste verses on the Internet.

I don't need to confrint you with scripture passages showing you to be an ignorant bigot, who is probably only second to Preston when it comes to hypocrisy, being judgmental and bearing false witness. One would hope that after reading the bible for 60 years you would be able reflect on your own sins and deal with them and try to be more Christ like. It's sad that you may never come to realize this.

What the Bible says is true. But you hold to an additional belief that when one is Baptized in the Holy Spirit, one must speak in tongues,(perhaps as a sign?).

Trying to tie in speaking in tongues with prophesying,(having dreams, and visions), as a MUST, is apart from the Scriptures, and therefore a manmade doctrine. And one used, and abused by its followers.

(I know of a Pentecostal believer, that "practices" everyday, for 10 minutes, the babble, so that his tongue will not become "stiff". This is clearly not a religion based in God's Word, if such be its followers. As much as you complain of the RCS in practicing manmade doctrines.

(I expect no reply, as usual.)

Hi Robert, and yes, I am just trying to learn and grow in the grace of our Lord and savior. I want to do the best that I can to be Christlike. I don't want to argue with others because I want to be more like Jesus.

You know how it feels when you first repent and get saved. You love everyone and are filled with that love and want everyone to feel the love, peace, and joy that you fill. Well I think, sometimes if people are not careful they will let that begin to fade out. I call it, losing your first love or getting cold. I don't think we are supposed to loose that feeling but pray for an increase in it. Apparently some don't see it that way and in my opinion they are too prideful to admit it and repent.

Anyhow, thanks and pray for me that I may abound in the Word of God and his knowledge.

You need not broach the subject of any priest laying hands on me....

that brings out memories that I would like to forget...

A lot of Catholic priest across the world.....have laid hands upon children

but

one can hardly call it ordaining them...

Some of them evidently don't know the difference...and the church (so called )could care less...

Quite true. And yet some believe that one must go through priest, pastor, bishops, and teachers. But there is only one Person, King, Priest, Creator, and Sacrifice, through Whom one must believe and follow, Jesus Christ.

Those here to profess their own way of service to God as the way to approach God, are merely reflecting back the title of this thread. And that is why there are so many posts. For some on here believe more in their own belief, than in Christ.

Nice. Just more evidence that you are a sick and twisted Christian wannabe, have no authority and do not speak for God. You should be ashamed of yourself, knowing that there are offenders in your sect as well, even more according to statistics.

If you knew anything about the Catholic faith you would not ask these questions. As it stands, you will be held to account god you slander and false witness.
