Pity she has so much confusion in her life.

On the contrary, her life is filled with great peace. Why not ask her yourself!

The program will air live in another 10 minutes. It is a 'call in' program and the phone number will be listed on the screen. You can imagine there are many callers. You can also email the program - journeyhome@ewtn.com. Those questions are also addressed life tonight.

Thankfully our justification (standing before God) is not based on being a member of the correct denomination, but it is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone as we have it in the Scripture alone.

Amen.

Better that my ex-Roman Catholic, Jesuit-trained, Calvinist-by-the-grace-of-God, reformed-through-His word husband call in.

He knows of what he speaks.

For the next several months I read the writings of those men who had learned the Christian faith from the very mouth of Christ and the Apostles.

If those writings are not of the men who wrote the Bible, then just exactly what has she been led to believe about the patriarchs??? Which of them heard anything from the very mouth of Christ???

I began to familiarize myself with the culture and time of the Apostles and realized that Christianity in its earliest days was not Bible centered (indeed most of the NT was not written yet and later was not available for the masses) but Tradition centered.

Yep --- she's been fully indoctrinated in the faith --- she has the jargon down --- hurry up and baptize her before she wakes up.

I learned that when the early Christians went to Church their services were not sermon centered but centered around the Eucharist, the Lord’s Supper, which was not seen as a symbol but as the actual Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

But that must have been only in those churches that only had Tradition, because those churches that had Bibles would have known that the "Soul" and "Divinity" part is nowhere in the Bible. Maybe a sermon or two on that in her new faith wouldn' hurt.

Got it on live streaming audio, but I’ll probably have to get one of the Highly Technical Teens to download the mp3 for me, if it’s extremely interesting.

That's just what I wondered. Do you suppose she really believes that? Maybe this is what they're trying to sell now -- that this is written somewhere deep in the vaults of the Vatican Library.

Or will be one day.

Amen. Amazing how it's all there in Scripture for those with ears to hear.

As I said from another post, it’s nice to know Catholics can still get so much love. After all there have been many Mormons here lately that have been getting more LOVE and attention than us.lol

Not from me. 8~)

Trinitarian Christianity is a great and Godly distinction -- one which should give our LDS friends considerable pause.

You wrote: “The “plain words” of Jesus Christ were...
“Do this in remembrance of me.” No wizardly incantation, no magical elevation in height, transmogrifies the bread and wine into the actual body and blood of Jesus Christ.”

The word is “anamnesis”. It is poorly translated as “remembrance”. Like so many other words, anamnesis, means much more than what it is translated as.

Here is a good point about anamnesis: “In Scripture, the only other time when anamnesis is used, besides the Last Supper narratives in the synoptic Gospels and in First Corinthians, is in the sacrificial context of Hebrews 10:3 :
“But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance (anamnesis) again made of sins every year.””

Keep reading Hebrews 10 and you will discover what the writer of Hebrews is telling us...

"But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified." -- Hebrews 10:12-14

"One sacrifice" for the sins of His people, not a perpetual mass of offering, over and over and over as if the first one had not taken effect.

You have been redeemed, Vlad. Rejoice. The offering was accepted by God. You have been acquitted of your sins by Christ standing in your place and taking on the punishment for every one of them.

I just said the Bible does interpret itself. Men compare Scripture with Scripture and thus learn God's meaning. God gave us ears to hear and quickened minds to understand in order to rightly discern His word. Some will get it right, by the grace of God, and some won't.

So that's all that Jesus Christ left us in the Scriptures? A riddle? A mystery to be solved by some and misunderstood by others?

Sorry. My Redeemer is far more provident and caring than that. He left us an authoritative guardian in the form of His Church, whose teaching on the true meaning of Scripture is there for any who wish to avail themsleves of it. He didn't just say "go figure".

And if the Catholic Church isn't right, then who is? You? Benny Hinn? Ken Copeland? The Methodists? The black dude in the storefront down the mall? I don't know of anybody who thinks their understanding of Scripture is incorrect. Everyone believes that their own meaning is the true one.

History has shown us clearly over the past 400 years that your recipe for understanding Scripture simply leads to a confused proliferation of customized churches. Clearly , the Bible doesn't interpret itself. That is utter nonsense.

Jesus Christ is not a God of confusion. He didn't create a dozen, two dozen or two thousand Churches. He created one. God is one and there is one Church based on one truth.

and forget every word these men wrote was supposed to be founded on Scritpure

Ironically, that itself is not found in Scripture. That contradiction should concern you deeply.

You mean that you never accept prayers from anyone?? Or that you never ask anyone to pray for you??

You just read scripture??

There are Holy Scpripture references in thos Early Fathers threads also. Too bad you didn’t check it out.

You don't "get it" at all.

It is not "as if the first one had not taken effect".

It is the first one, made present to us in our time. When a Catholic goes to Mass, it is literally equivalent to being transported back in time to Calvary, because Calvary is eternally present in eternity, and so are we.

(The same is true of the Orthodox Divine Liturgy.)

And if you understood Hebrews 9 and 10, you'd see that. And if you read the fathers, you'd see that they believe it too.

You wrote: “Keep reading Hebrews 10 and you will discover what the writer of Hebrews is telling us...”

And that’s the same sacrifice WE’RE talking about. What is presented on the altar at Mass IS THE SAME SACRIFICE as on Golgotha. It’s not a new sacrifice. It’s the same sacrifice.

“”One sacrifice” for the sins of His people, not a perpetual mass of offering, over and over and over as if the first one had not taken effect.”

One sacrifice offered up again just as the Bible said it would be: Malachi 1:11. “For from the rising of the sun even to the going down, my name is great among the Gentiles, and in every place there is sacrifice, and
there is offered to my name a clean oblation: for my name is great among the Gentiles, saith the Lord of hosts.”

“You have been redeemed, Vlad. Rejoice. The offering was accepted by God. You have been acquitted of your sins by Christ standing in your place and taking on the punishment for every one of them.”

I know. That’s EXACTLY why I believe in Christ and His Eucharist.

I noticed how you completely ignored anamnesis. You didn’t know about that did you?

But that was said to the Apostles who He commissioned, and those who would go on to write scripture. And she says she didn't get her new faith from any of them.

typical response, the ‘lack of intellect’ of the convert

Today there is more emphasis on "feelings", "traditions" and "emotions", than on good, objective study. Saying one has become a Catholic because the Church is based on "tradition" is kind of a silly reason in my mind.

Thank you so much for sharing your insights and thank you for the excellent Scripture choices!

We ought to meditate on Jesus' Name, i.e. Word of God

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and [they] are life. - John 6:63

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. - Matt 4:4

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. - John 1:1

And he [was] clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. - Revelation 19:13

She has written a blog post about her upbringing and her accusations against her and James’s father for sexual abuse. I have no idea what to make of it. Apparently this accusation has torn the family apart.

http://www.catholic-convert.com/2009/02/18/patty-bonds-her-father-her-mother-and-her-brother-james-white/

I’m still confused after reading some posts at her blog, why she blames her brother. If he didn’t know, and if there’s no proof, I’m not sure what he is supposed to do. But I ache for the entire family. Someone is lying, not sure who, and people are using this to torch James White. I’m not sure Patty

from one of her latest posts entitled “Protestant bloggers need to stop!”
http://abbaslittlegirl.blogspot.com/2010/05/protestant-bloggers-need-to-stop.html

wants her information to be used in quite that way. The blog that I found her piece from was a baptist forum trying to discredit James White over the Ergun Caner situation, saying that he isn’t interested in the truth because he sided with his dad in this situation... It’s preposterous to say the two situations (Caner’s proven lies vs Patty’s allegations) are equally provable.
