My point is, that if Billy Graham now believes that Atheists are saved, according to your Christian theology ... that makes Billy Graham an Atheist ... an outcast from heaven ... blah, blah, blah.
Other Christians see his heresy ... so why don't you? Are you "spiritually" blind?

Do you think they say point blank that Catholics are to pray to Mary?

I said show me from the catechism that we are supposed to worship Mary. I am not interested in 19th century articles. Can you SHOW ME FROM OFFICIAL CHURCH TEACHING THAT WE CATHOLICS ARE TO GIVE MARY WORSHIP?? If you cant, then you need to apologize for bearing false witness..
I have shown you several websites that show the pope kneeling and praying to an idol of Mary...one of these is the Catholic Herald....clearly showing the popes not following the teaching of the Bible...since they don't follow the Bible...there is no cause to think they would follow the Catechism...whatever it teaches...on whatever...or whoever!!!????

Sorry, Anthony....I am going to have to disagree with you here.....
From the Word of God:
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.
When Peter said, "Moreover I will endeavor that even after my death you may often have occasion to call these things to mind."
Wouldn't this have been a perfect time to name his successor???
Clement was a disciple of Peter. He wrote this. You're free to disagree with him, but are you not concerned that you may be relying on your own judgement and not the apostles?

Anthony,
Good question.....
When an apostle performed the laying hands on to a certain individual that individual could perform miraculous gifts......
Could that individual perform the laying hands on to the next individual (ie, passing the power on to the next person???)
Yes. Consider the fact that all of the ancient Churches have Sees that were founded by the apostles and have direct lineage by way of ordination (laying on of hands) up to this very day. Ask any Eastern Orthodox or Oriental Christian.

It's also very important for you to realize that apostolic succession was only rejected after the reformation as the adherents knew they have broken from the apostolic Church.

Ok.....
The promise was for the apostles......not the other 120 in the upper room.....
WHY???
IMPORTANT.....all of those baptized 'with' the Holy Spirit spoke in the other languages and all who spoke in those other languages were Galileans
~~~All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues (languages) as the Spirit enabled them.~~~
~~~Utterly amazed, they asked:“Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans?~~~
Everyone baptized 'with' the Holy Spirit that day was from Galilee and the twelve apostles were all "men of Galilee."
“Men of Galilee,” they said,“why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”.
Now, what was the purpose of baptism 'with' the Holy Spirit???

----------
Act 2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of FIRE and it sat upon each of them.
Act 2:4 And THEY WERE ALL filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them (ALL the 'audience' that witnessed the event), Repent, and be baptized EVERY ONE OF YOU in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and YOU shall receive the gift (PROMISE) of the Holy Ghost.
Act 2:39 FOR the PROMISE IS UNTO YOU, AND to your children, and to ALL that are afar off, EVEN AS MANY AS THE LORD OUR GOD SHALL CALL.

When Peter preached to the Centurion (Roman), Cornelius and all of his family received the gift of the Holy Ghost. Act 10:42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.
Act 10:43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
Act 10:44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.
Paul asked the Ephesians (not Jewish apostles):
Act 19:2 ... Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.
Act 19:3 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism.
Act 19:4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.
Act 19:5 When they heard this,(I) THEY WERE BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS.
THEN:
Act 19:6 And when PAUL HAD LAID HIS HANDS UPON THEM, THE HOLY GHOST CAME ON THEM; AND THEY SPOKE WITH TONGUES, AND PROPHESIED.

HAVE YOU RECEIVED THE (GIFT OF) HOLY GHOST SINCE 'YOU' BELIEVED ???

Easy. The very same way that Elijah, Jacob, Abraham, Noah, Issac, David, and all the rest were "saved".
See how easy that was.

It was TOO easy:

All of the ones you named BELIEVED in and followed God. Atheists do not believe.
One is saved by FAITH (believing in God).

An apostle is a messenger..

Messenger: a person who takes messages from one person or group to another or others...If that messenger is given that position by God or by his employer...he is still an apostle...

lol, I who am an Apostle knows what this office is.

however a heathen like you can only depend on google to instruct you.

a Apostle is one who has seen the Resurrected Christ, who has been Chosen by God Himself, to Preach the Word to heathens like you .

SO YOUR LINK IS NOT NECESSARILY THE COMPLETE TRUTH.

a messenger might take messages from some group BUT THAT DOESNT MEAN THAT GROUP REPRESENTS GOD. OR HAS BEEN CHOSEN BY GOD.

I THINK THAT IT IS FUNNY THAT YOU NEED SOME LINK TO GIVE YOU SOME KNOWLEDGE AND THAT IS YOUR PROBLEM, you only know part of the Truth, WHICH IS WHY YOU STILL ARE NOT SAVED AND WE SEE THAT CONSTANTLY,

that you remain a heathen, and boy if you do to to a church, they would love to read your ignorance, and run you out of their church.

BUT HEY, DONT WORRY, marge and her church of two needs members like you. byob!

The Catholic Herald is not official Church teaching. They are a newspaper in Britain with 21,000 subscribers.
I asked you to provide evidence from official Church teaching that says we are to worship Mary. If you can't, you need to apologize for bearing false witness. From the catechism Ox... Go.

That goes for Confrint too.

jealous are you?

and the year was in 1984 when I first stepped into a pulpit,I know you don't know what that is since they are not needed or used in catholic satanic services.

I have only been in one catholic church and that was the stinking place I have ever stepped foot in. is that to get you catholics used to the smell of hell?.

why would a catholic church property have a jail on it? your clergy have to lock the little boys in it?

and dont say no church property has a jail on it. I showed pictures of it several years ago on this forum, which is why your church will not live in infamy, Jesus will DESTROY it someday

Miss it did ya KayMarie?
The point is that if one can be saved without Christ, then it stands to reason that all CAN be saved in a dissimilar way.
NOTHING is impossible. Remember?
