In Christ Alone lyrics
Songwriters: Getty, Julian Keith; Townend, Stuart Richard;
In Christ alone my hope is found He is my light, my strength, my song This Cornerstone, this solid ground Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace When fears are stilled, when strivings cease My Comforter, my All in All Here in the love of Christ I stand
In Christ alone, who took on flesh Fullness of God in helpless Babe This gift of love and righteousness Scorned by the ones He came to save
?Til on that cross as Jesus died The wrath of God was satisfied For every sin on Him was laid Here in the death of Christ I live, I live
There in the ground His body lay Light of the world by darkness slain Then bursting forth in glorious Day Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory Sin?s curse has lost its grip on me For I am His and He is mine Bought with the precious blood of Christ
This is a day for all evangelicals to celebrate..Luther stood up for the truth of the scriptures.. it is a day for all that believe
Thanks for your Biblical pings.
AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!
Is this the pot calling the kettle black? One unbeliever calling another one as a defense ?
Protestant doctrine embraces evil.
Catholic doctrine rejects evil.
And of course, there are sinners whose actions run counter to doctrine.
With your logic we would have to conclude that Jesus’ moral teachings were incorrect because most of his audience rejected his moral teachings.
Protestant doctrine embraces birth control and gayness and divorce.
Catholic doctrine rejects all three. And I follow these doctrines.
Since when is posting a quote spreading false information?
Sounds like the Obama defense.
The loons and liars I was referring to were Luther and Calvin.
None of the other apostles argued with Paul calling himself an apostle, what’s your issue here?
“Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither BY MAN, but BY JESUS CHRIST, and GOD THE FATHER, who raised Him from the dead;). Galatians 1:1.
Did he really claim that?
then Luthers followers can do the same
That's what you get when you follow men, like Catholics do.
When you compare your life to Scripture and the standards set therein, you see whether your life matches up to God's standards or not and don't depend on feelings. The conscience can be deceitful. God's word never changes.
and so naturally the non-stop reformation began, creating millions of popes - each man his own.
It is simply beyond the comprehension of Catholics that people don't blindly follow other men. They have this *pope* mentality that they don't realize others don't have.
We follow Christ, not any man who sets up himself as such or is elected by another group of men. The old boy network is alive and well.
That's funny coming from a church which has given us the Inquisition and priests preying on little boys and nothing being done about it without outside pressure to, and a big block of Democratic voters.
What is it with Catholics not being able to grasp the idea that every man is equal to every other man, CREATED EQUAL?? Do Catholics also, by this standard, reject the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution? Every man is his own captain, responsible for his own ship. If I didn't know better, I would think Catholics are not comfortable with freedom of any kind...perhaps the reason they don't understand that democrats take freedoms AWAY...and just keep voting them in. Or perhaps they DO understand that, and just want to be controlled in everything they do. Tell them what to do, and they will follow, smiling all the way. Give them their freedom to decide, whether in politics or religion, and they coil into a fetal position in a corner, confused and afraid to move.
Sounds like Calvinists to me. Yes, there was an aggressive and vengeful Protestant Inquisition. Yes, there are a significant number of abuse victims whose plight is denied daily by Protestant apologists. And yes, those paragons of Christian faith, the Protestant Rev. Jesse Jackson, the Rev. Al Sharpton, Jimmy Swaggart, the Rev. Wright, and the like all conspired with other Protestants to elect those Protestant pillars of virtue Bill Clinton and Barak Obama.
Why don't you get off your high horse and visit any military cemetery and see how many Catholics are buried there. I have a suspicion that you never served a minute and don't know anything about the Catholics who served so you could spout that nonsense. While you are at it why don't you check the percentage of Catholic soldiers that fought for the Union as compared to the percentage of Confederate soldiers that were Catholic.
Silly us. We keep forgetting that Catholics are perfect.
And the Roman Catholic Church gave us priests raping children, and your tithes are paying the damages.
What does this have to do with every man being created EQUAL? Catholic soldiers/Protestant soldiers, all who have given their lives for the freedom we enjoy are to be honored. But that freedom comes FROM GOD. Not man. And our salvation comes FROM GOD. Not a religious institution. You need to get off your high horse. Are you now reduced to going to military cemeteries and counting Catholics as opposed to Protestants?
Wrong again. Our rights come from God, our freedom comes from the blood of the soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen who have fought, bled and died to secure them. If freedom came from God all would be free.
Silly Gamecock, you forget that the Catholics have assured us that it wasn't rape - the sex between the boys and the priests was all very legal and consensual at the time! Moreover, all those poor innocent doe-eyed priests were seduced by organized gangs of demonic 14 yr old boys harboring secret agendas!
What man does with that freedom is up to man. They may be like-minded and come together to form a great nation of free men. Who fight and die to protect that freedom from the enemy. Or they may reject that freedom for greed, ignorance, power, glory, or religions of men. They may be born into a system that has been corrupted for years, yet if they have freedom in their hearts, their souls cannot become enslaved by evil men. And then there are those who live in a free society, given by God, and secured by patriots, who reject that freedom as coming from God and instead look to other men to guide their destiny.
How dare Catholics bring up the subject of sexual abuse by Protestant Clergy. Even though all churches are victimized by wayward clergy who hide within their ranks and even though it is equally bad in scope and higher in scale, it doesn't serve the anti-Catholic agenda. The victims of Protestant abuse must be re-abused over and over again by the silence of their church members for the advancement of the reformation.
Hey, who's complaining? Not me! Perhaps you'd like to post a thread or two on the subject? You never know - it might make you feel better about the amount of
rape paedophila ephebophilia abuse consensual activity between male priests and male minors that has taken place within your own church.
I don't feel good about the abuse of children by anyone, but to pretend that sexual abuse by clergy is exclusively a Catholic problem is beyond naive, it is evil. It selectively ignores the victims of Protestant abuse and thereby tacitly condones it.
Since it is not the policy of any church to condone the practice why do you? Do you have something to hide or do you just think that the kids need to take one for the good of the reformation?
Sounds like Obama defense, since this is really not very complicated. You are scaring me. Since when my quotes qualify as FRoman Catholic????
You are quoting me as a "Roman Catholic" and I am not a Catholic. Hello! I don't care if you quote me, in fact the more the merrier, thank you very much, but at least have enough gray brain matter to put me in the RIGHT CATEGORY (hint: how can an Agnostic be a Roman Catholic???). Is that too much to ask for?
I will tell you what: if you continue to include me as a Roman Catholic, I will list you on my home page as an Atheist. How's that for you?
I feel your pain, haven't you realized yet that to the malignantly anti-Catholic the truth is irrelevant.
Thomas Jefferson was a believer. He believer with all his heart in a Creator. You must be confusing Thomas Paine with Jefferson. Didn't go to school that day? :)
I mentioned him in order to illustrate the fact that quoting Jefferson as a "Catholic" is as misleading as quoting me as a Catholic.
I know this is not too difficult.
Must be. But it could be worse. I tried to make it simple enough for a 5 year-old to comprehend, so I didn't expect a snag! But, I was wrong! :)
As I said, it was a sincere question. But your only point was that no one argued with him about it....so I still have no reason as to why he called himself that...
Matthias was an apostle by having the lot fall to him, even Judas was called an apostle, it seems to me that Paul took it upon himself to say he was an apostle. Doesn't seem right.
That would not make his writing less, just that he is a self appointed apostle..
The thread is an open thread, boatbums. Besides, if you read #8, it pretty much answers your question, so what's the point of it?
Even Gnostics and Mormons praise Jesus. Does that mean, one can not raise objections to that on an open thread? Change the thread to a reformed Caucus and pat each other on the back without interference. Ask RnMomof7 why she made it an open thread.
Protestantism declared war on Christianity nearly 500 years ago. Although they no longer take up arms against the Church or destroy relics and religious art the warfare has not stopped. Today it is a campaign of lies, mistruths and innuendo. Instead of spreading those lies through a pillow case with eye-holes they use the anonymity of the internet. In every war, truth is alway the first casualty.
I just wonder if posting FReeper's quotes on someone Homepage is within Religion Forum rules. Especially if a FReeper is listed as belonging to one group when he is not.
[RM: Gemecock quotes me on his Homepage as a "FRoman Catholic" and I am not Roman Catholic]
I’ve seen posters quoting other posters on their own profile pages for both ridicule and rememberance.
Thank you, RM. That's fine. My objection is not that he quoted me, but the fact that he has me identified as a Catholic, which I never was. It would be like identifying an English writer as an American author. I am not Catholic, so quoting me as a "Catholic" is beyond ridicule. It's actually misleading.
My objection was that he has me listed as a "Roman Catholic" poster, which is a lie.
But, if that's allowed, then I can quote you or him on my homepage under the rubric "famous FR Atheist quotes," or as 0bmama supporters, right?
Is that perspicuous enough for you?
Why on earth would you think I would possibly know or care what you have on your homepage? Your postings are bad enough, I have no desire to find the motherlode.
NL has taken many non-Catholic Christians to task for what he calls "trolling" on the Catholic threads in order to lie about their doctrines and disparage Catholics. He calls them haters and bigots, now they're "Pauliwogs" who bastardize the Bible. It seemed hypocritical for him to carry on so much about his beliefs being offended by posters who lie in wait with their evil motives and pounce at every opportunity they have. If such behavior is so repulsive to him, that he would turn around and do exactly the same thing is questionable.
I know the thread is open, but if you would look back on the path the posts took in an honest way, you would see that those who screamed and complain the loudest are guilty of exactly the same offense. NL response was that he was answering the lies about the teaching of Rome, and up to that point nothing of the kind had even occurred.
rampant divorce - and annulment$ for a price. Kennedy, Cuomo, etc.
rampant homosexualism - lawsuits galore against Rome.
rampant promiscuity - it got Madonna started.
RAMPANT LIBERALISM - 54% of Catholics voted for Pro Abortion Barry.
Paul repeatedly said in the beginning of each of his epistles that he was an apostle of Jesus Christ. Rom. 1:1;11:13; 1 Cor. 1:1;9:2;15:9; 2Cor. 1:1;12:12; Gal. 1:1;2:8; Eph. 1:1; Col. 1:1; 1Tim. 1:1;2:7; 2Tim.1:1;1:11; Titus 1:1. Even Peter speaks of the Lord speaking through prophets and the apostles in 2 Peter 3:2 and Paul specifically in 2 Peter 3:15. Paul called himself that because Christ appeared to him and comission him to be one and to take the gospel to the gentiles.
It makes no difference to me if it's Natural Law criticizing the Reformed or the Reformed attacking Rome, the principle of an open forum applies, period.
Here is an interesting thing: Alex Murphy makes and receives posts. But if you go to his Homepage it says his account has "banned or suspended."
It did nothing to stop it, but I didn't really expect it to. I don't care for rank hypocrisy and I hope you aren't a fan either.
No I am not. But I also don't engage in activities if I don't expect any results.
And quoting Paul is not valid for me to find where God said Saul, who he called by a new name Paul, but I want where in scripture He calls him an apostle..
