Thank you for your many responses.
I still haven’t found any non-Catholic able to explain any errors of the teachings of Jesus in the Catholic Church.
You may have your personal opinions that are contrary to the teachings of Jesus and His Catholic Church, but you haven’t provided any logical reasoning for your personal opinions. You may have many quotes from the Bible, but obviously no authority to back up your personal and sometimes contorted opinions.
Your postings seem to lack insight into History of Christ’s Church and you just seem to deny what you do not like. I hope that you would open your mind and try to understand things from a different viewpoint so that you can find the real Truth, I sense that you think you know the Truth, but from your postings I don’t think that you truly understand.
I did not deny that Jesus used symbolism and metaphor to teach in various parts of the Bible. When Jesus uses “Amen, Amen” (Latin for So be it)the statement is being emphasized as being very important and Jesus did not use metaphor or symbolism to tell us about and give us the gift of HIS BODY AND BLOOD in the Eucharist. He repeated it.
Why are you any different from the Jews at Capernaum? “But there are some of you who do not believe. Jesus knew from the beginning the ones who would not believe and the one who would betray him.” As a result of this, many [of] his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him. John 6
Tell me what is “magic thinking”? If you have faith in Jesus, you have to accept all of Jesus. You can’t pick and chose what you believe. It is difficult to follow Jesus and do God’s will and many are persecuted for their beliefs. You profess loudly, but do your actions reflect your beliefs.
As Jesus said many times: “Peace be with you.”
