But you can speak for catholics that pull doctrine out of a hat like a magician and his rabbit

Thank God protestants have the sure revelation of the scriptures as their authority..not old men with “visions “ of sugar plumbs dancing in their head with the queen of heaven flying with them


WELL PUT. THX.

You're kidding. Right?

No.

The RCC claims to have WRITTEN the Bible

No it doesn't.

the NT contains almost 8,000 verses. That would be a workload of 4 verses a year to interpret. They couldn't manage that?

So, where's your interpretation of each verse, or are you just a stone thrower?

Nice job of not answering the questions, BTW, as is typical when trying to pin down any Catholic on what the Catholic Church actually teaches.

Look it up for yourself. Catechism of the Catholic Church

I thought you were joking.

If we agree that the word "emissary" refers to an ambassador or representative, you think Gabriel was "Christ's holiest emissary?" More than Paul? More than John the Baptist? More than Luke? More than the apostle John? More than Peter?

Did Gabriel risk his life for anyone? Did Gabriel preach the Gospel to heathens hoping to kill him? What did Gabriel suffer to be Christ's emissary?

What did Gabriel do that would make you call him "Christ's holiest emissary?"

Yes. Apparently, if I mention a year ago that my doctor wants me to have one glass of wine at dinner, or participate on a thread about which are good, inexpensive table wines, I am invariably drinking when posting, ever after. The actual truth is that all alcoholic drinks make me sleepy, and I can rarely tolerate them. But some will not let the truth stand in the way of vicious innuendo.

But, we cannot fix a oenophobe, and it isn’t our job anyway.

. . . I am now beginning to understand that Protestants, or at least Calvinists, really don’t believe the beatitudes or being charitable applies to them.

They are taught that the needy among us are “children of satan”, “goats, or “tares”. Love your neighbor does not apply.

Sometimes, it's still shocking to see the lengths of

UNMITIGATED FALSEHOOD; BEARING FALSE WITNESS; OUTRAGEOUSLY ABSURD TO IRRATIONAL ASSERTIONS; ETC.

Which folks of the Roman Catholic et al rabid cliques are willing to habitually go. Fascinating . . . if one can get over the pathetic and sad aspects.

I GUESS IT’S YET FURTHER DOCUMENTATION that Roman Catholic dogma etc. is so rubbery and flexible as to fit whatever the poster wants it to fit, at the time.

Are your politics separate from your religion? Is your religion separate from your finances? Is your religion separate from your vote? Do you keep God in a compartment where He cannot influence the rest of your life?

So, why do Catholics so consistently and predictably vote Democratic and support liberal pro-homosexual and pro-abortion candidates like Kerry, Kennedy, and Pelosi?

How Christlike is it to condone murder and mockery of marriage and sexual perversion?

Didn't Christ regularly tell people to go and sin no more?

Catholics who attend mass weekly, unlike the huge numbers of liberal protestants, do not vote for CINOS, do not contribute to CCHD, do not support abortion under any circumstances, do not support gay marriage, do not support the use of embryonic stem cells, and do not vote for those who do.

I suspect you already knew that, but could not resist the calumny.

You’re a bit behind the times about the Catholic Church and its alleged relation to Scripture.

According to your Catholic compatriots, the Bible was written by the *church fathers* and since all the authors of the NT are considered Roman Catholic by default, therefore, the Catholic Church wrote the Bible.

This is the perfect scripture in which to rightly divide God's Word. Read it and then compare it with 1 Corinthians 10:1-3.

Christ was speaking TO THE JEWS. It is in the Dispensation of the Law.

Paul was speaking TO THE JEWS. About the Dispensation of the LAW. He is comparing the Dispensation of the Law and the Dispensation of Grace. Jew and Gentile. Israel having the blessings under the Law, but warning against pride. The blessings of Gentiles in the Dispensation of Grace but the warning against pride. Admonishing Christians against pride and idolatry as had befallen Israel.

The Jews ate the same spiritual meat, and drank the same spiritual drink: for the drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.(1 Corinthians10: 3,4). Again, under the Law.

We are not under the Law. We are in the Dispensation of the Grace of God.

It’s rather distressing the way the Vatican Institution as represented hereon keeps shoving such elastic, rubbery, mangled junk in Proddys’ et al’s faces.

The poor hungry and meek do not represent the God of their wrongly formed mind because of John Calvin, so they think the poor hungry and meek lack the grace of God because they are not like Calvin-who was a devil in disguise.

lol. Your post shows no understanding of John Calvin.

From his commentary on II Corinthians 8:15, Calvin writes,

"...God has enjoined upon us frugality and temperance, and has forbidden, that anyone should go to excess, taking advantage of his abundance. Let those, then, that have riches, whether they have been left by inheritance, or procured by industry and efforts, consider that their abundance was not intended to be laid out in intemperance or excess, but in relieving the necessities of the brethren. (297)...

Calvin, like Paul and Peter and John and Luke knew that the sermon on the mount was not a prescription for salvation, but a description of the Christian life, once renewed by the Holy Spirit to accomplish the good works of Christ within them.

Very clever. You must not be the average Protestant.

The Catechism is put out by the Church. It shows up on numerous sites, but is the same document.

Since it appears to bother you so much, feel free to access the same document here Catechism of the Catholic Church. I hope having it at your "official" source makes you feel better.

Like the Protestants the Catholic Church burned to death, or tortured to death in the Inquisition?

People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

The Roman Catholic Church history is an abomination and a stain on the history of Christianity. The corruption that existed in the papacy for so long, the sale of indulgences, the suppression of knowledge because it contradicted church teaching (Galileo for example), just to mention a few....

The only reason it has changed is because of the Reformation. As people actually began to read and understand the clear teachings of Scripture, they saw what a farce the RCC had put up and were leaving it.

It forced the RCC to make changes in itself that would NEVER have happened otherwise.

And to try to claim that an organization with that kind of history is what Christ established on earth to represent Himself is to spit in Christ’s face. Jesus would NEVER condone the behavior that ran rampant in the Roman Catholic Church throughout most of its history. He would never condone that kind of sin and deception.

Of COURSE it doesn’t Judith Anne. Because you think you are in the Dispensation of the Law. And you are NOT. You are living in the Dispensation of the Grace of God. That’s what rightly dividing is about. KNOW YOUR DISPENSATION. You can eat and drink the “body of Christ” until you burst, it’s not going to save you.

And you know this how?

I worked with a lot of Catholics who were VERY faithful in their attendance, easily going beyond weekly attendance, often more than once a week, some of which were KofC and still voted as liberal as they come.

When asked why, they couldn't give a decent answer.

How can you seriously expect us to believe, considering Catholic voting block history, your statement to be true, much less that you know the voting habits of all Catholics well enough to be able to make blanket statements like that?

Why is the Catholic Church so silent about these politicians?

You obviously need someone to educate you. That whole YOPIS thing isn't doing so well.

Are you involved in any type of small group Bible study?

Do you have time to regularly read your Bible?

I am assuming that if you do these things your mind is turned on and your seeking to understand the Word of God better. Why would a priest do a better job thinking for you than you?
