Christ really was a humble man; actually, He DEMANDED very little - I cannot remember any reference in the NT where he demanded anyone to bow down before Him. That’s enough to make me want to bow down before Him.
I said “Christ really was a humble man; actually he DEMANDED very little -” In the scripture, Christ TOLD THEM (not demanded) that they would have to eat of His body and drink of His blood, a hard saying in that time - a mystery containing the sacrament of bread and wine (the Passover) and a whole lot more, reading and obeying the Word for another thing and incorporating this into our lives. (I will be observing Passover next month at a Christian Passover supper, when it is time for Passover.)
How is that initial statement worthy of name-calling by you?
I am not a Roman Catholic. Many people do not choose to be Roman Catholics; why does that render them targets of name-calling by you?
I know you surely mean well. There are Church of Christ people who mean well. There are Greek Orthodox who mean well. There are a Baptists who mean well. There are Mormons who mean well - and most of them think any of those who aren’t in their club are going straight to Hell. . and they are as adamant in that belief as you are in yours . . I cannot be all those things to please all those different sects; there aren’t enough hours in the day or years in a life.
So - relax is what I think would be a good thing to do.
I’m about half way through the anthology of her letters. Yes, you’re right, it’s interesting to see how she thinks. She disects things, cuts right through to the ultimate meaning. Interesting that she read Aquinas for 20 minutes each night before bed!
Amen you too. I am hoping to go to one of Cumbie’s seminars if he gets to NJ or Eastern PA.
he’s a laff riot. Seriously, his CD’s are really good, esp. for Baptists. Pass the grape juice.
Actually, when asked by the young man, the scriptural reply was” repent, and be baptized.”
The New Testament never uses the phrase “ accept J.C. as your personal saviour.” That terminology comes more from the 20th century and Americanized Tent revival meetings.
Catholics are closer to 6th chapter of Gospel of John than other denominations.
Catholics don't understand the 6th Chapter of John...
You should come down to sunny Florida :-) Ill be attending The Florida Catholic Mens Conference on April 19th. The featured speakers are Bishop Galeone, Michael Cumbie, Scott Hahn and Tim Staples.
