Interesting, reincarnation may have been part of Jewish belief?
He has gone home now, but I highly recommend his ministry. I recall hearing him on a recorded broadcast one time as he described visiting a foreign country where people lived on a river and had no variety in their diets, because fish was all they had to eat. His voice then broke as he went on that "...and some people don't have enough to eat AT ALL."
Quite a contrast to the "Profit-Driven Church" who preach a gospel of gaudiness and flash...(shades of Matthew 6:5 ff)
Obligatory disclaimer for the intellectually-minded: he won a fellowship in philosophy at Cambridge (as in Oxford and Cambridge) at age 24 under Ludwig Wittgenstein (yes, *that* Wittgenstein. Incidentally Catholic theologian Elizabeth Anscombe *also* studied under Wittegenstein.)
Second disclaimer: while I'm on the subject, Jonathan Edwards ("Sinners in the hands of an angry god") *finished* his college degreee at Yale (as in Harvard, Yale, Princeton) at age seventeen, first in his class.
I am so Joyful and at Peace by God's grace to be a Christian. My Lord Jesus Christ shows me that glorified bodily resurrection is my future state and eternal existence in constant intimate relationship with Him!
Just what is it that people are looking for with signs anyway?
Signs, well, actually miracles, for unbelievers are understandable. It is a witness to men about God. It can convict unbelievers that God is real. Jesus used miracles to bring men to Himself all the times. But read what He says about people looking for signs. It's easy to do a keyword search on the word sign on somewhere like the Biblegateway.
But believers should already have that *God is real* already covered. What do they need signs for? I can't think of a *sign* that modern day believers look for that can't be counterfeited by the enemy.
Anyone who claims to be a believer who is depending on signs to validate some work to determine if it's from God or not is leaving themselves open to spiritual deception.
Agreed! Many Think Gideons fleece was a good idea but was it really? Just because it is in the Bible does not mean it was God's will. Maybe Gideon had fear and doubt issues. These to me are the opposite of Faith.
Wow, how about interior locution? Does it exist or is it only a Catholic teaching? I do not see too much problems with it IMHO.
4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men.
7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8 To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines.
There are the gifts of knowledge and wisdom given by the Spirit. I don't know if that is what the Catholic church recognizes or labels as interior locution or not.
See Mark it is all about the relationship. I had Interior locution once in my life. I have a daily moment to moment relationship however.
As I noted before.
I agreed with your many excellent points in that post.
Yup. Derek Prince was more than a little British! LOL.
I have no opinion about it. I have not experienced it and the Church has not ruled in its favour. I will let the Church deal with its handling.
While there is abundant evidence for God throughout the universe, there is NO evidence whatsoever for a ¨Satan¨ outside human experience. I believe it´s a product of the mind, and that it undermines monotheism.
I think Mother Theresa embraced this concept. Now I am going to tell you what to do MarkBsnr. Hold on tight to your Catholic Traditions But, Take a leap of faith and try to exercise building your intimate, moment to moment, in the now relationship with The Lord Jesus Christ. MadDawg can give you some help. I have seen fruit on FR from you of a high level beatitude, Blessed are the peace makers. No need to leave the Church to find the Lord. You do not have to do what I tell you to do however. The choice is yours. :)

A very holy lady who will be recognized as a saint one day.

I am a great believer in and a worshiper of Almighty God, Creator of All, and Saviour of the world. I don't believe in:
MadDawg can give you some help.
He certainly has in the past.

Ah, I must protest somewhat. My fruits are a tad unpalatable to some, and my peacemaking abilities tend to run towards the Samuel Colt arena.
No need to leave the Church to find the Lord.
Very good. I would find it rather difficult to believe that having gone through some trouble to Create it, He would expect us to abandon it.
You do not have to do what I tell you to do however. The choice is yours. :)
You do understand that this simple statement sets you apart from legions of harpies who, rather emphatically, insist on just that. Tremendous sentiment and I pray that others may see your original post and at least consider it.
It seems our Lord believed in a “Satan.” I’m not sure how that relates to your canon of investigation,but it’s pretty strong for most Christians.
The sheep hear his voice . . . the sheep follow him, for they know his voice (John 10:3-4).
Glory to God in the highest, and peace to his people on earth.
Lord God, heavenly King, almighty God and Father,
we worship you, we give you thanks, we praise you for your glory.
Lord Jesus Christ, only son of the Father, Lord God, Lamb of God,
you take away the sins of the world: have mercy on us;
you are seated at the right hand of the Father: receive our prayer.
For You alone are the Holy One,
You alone are the Lord,
You alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ,
with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father. Amen
I confess to Almighty God
And to you, my brothers and sisters:
That I have sinned through my own fault,
In my thoughts and in my words,
In what I have done and in what I have failed to do.
I ask Blessed Mary, ever virgin,
All the angels and saints,
And you, my brothers and sisters,
To pray for me to the Lord our God.
Ping to post. This may be germane to your discussion. Let us separate the Christian from the pagan.
