    So, in your church, if you have a disagreement with your preacher or elder on a faith matter...What do you do?

    “It’s the same as we do here on FR; but a bit more private.
    First; determine as to whether the P/E disagrees with the churches/denomination’s PUBLISHED stand on the matter...”

    And this is why since the 1500s, the Protestants have been in a constant state of schism, devolving and falling away, disunited from Christ’s Church, breaking up into thousands of disparate pieces. There is no argument on their part for being “...one, holy, catholic and apostolic church”.

    “Could you give the scriptural foundation Ignatius used for this ? “

    ” 2 Thessalonians 2:15, “Stand firm, and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter.”

    “1 Thessalonians 2:13: “And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God...”

    Here we see Paul putting oral tradition on the same level as written tradition. It seems such a leap for many modern day Christians, but when you think about it, our first Christians had Jesus Christ first, then the Church, then the Bible. So, it many spiritual sense as it is commanded of us and logical sense.

    So, in your church, if you have a disagreement with your preacher or elder on a faith matter...What do you do?

    You are ignoring that sola scriptura is not scriptural. This is because it refutes itself. This is foundational to the very core of lies that is protestantism.

    The point must be deflected away from, as nobody has a substantive answer, and it rocks protestantism to its very core.

    On the other hand, Christ’s Church is one, holy, catholic and apostolic. Compared the the many, vain, divided and rejecting of Truth breakaways.

    “He has been asked repeatedly to produce the official RC evidence for this doctrine and rebut the argument that Scripture only ever describes the Church as masculine.”

    Scriptural evidence as to why you are incorrect.

    (CCC 796) The unity of Christ and the Church, head and members of one Body, also implies the distinction of the two within a personal relationship. This aspect is often expressed by the image of bridegroom and bride. The theme of Christ as Bridegroom of the Church was prepared for by the prophets and announced by John the Baptist (Jn 3:29). The Lord referred to himself as the “bridegroom” (Mk 2:19). The Apostle speaks of the whole Church and of each of the faithful, members of his Body, as a bride “betrothed” to Christ the Lord so as to become but one spirit with him (Cf. Mt 22:1-14; 25:1-13; 1 Cor 6:15-17; 2 Cor 11:2). The Church is the spotless bride of the spotless Lamb (Cf. Rev 22:17; Eph 1:4; 5:27). “Christ loved the Church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her” (Eph 5:25-26). He has joined her with himself in an everlasting covenant and never stops caring for her as for his own body (Cf. Eph 5:29): This is the whole Christ, head and body, one formed from many… whether the head or members speak, it is Christ who speaks. He speaks in his role as the head (ex persona capitis) and in his role as body (ex persona corporis). What does this mean? “The two will become one flesh. This is a great mystery, and I am applying it to Christ and the Church” (Eph 5:31-32). And the Lord himself says in the Gospel: “So they are no longer two, but one flesh” (Mt 19:6). They are, in fact, two different persons, yet they are one in the conjugal union,… as head, he calls himself the bridegroom, as body, he calls himself “bride” (St. Augustine, En. in Ps. 74:4: PL 36, 948-949).

    Sure it does. Early Church leaders and bishops, put much thought into the inspired Word of God. Christians agreed on this, except for several branches in heresy. Christianity, agreed on the canon, for the most part. Differences were worked out in Councils, with not much resistance and vast agreement. Then, after 1,500 years or so, there was suddenly disagreement to suit the needs of those inventing their own religions.

    “Some of the hostility was not surprising, for some of it came from well-meaning Protestants who simply do not have a good grounding in Christian history or the Catholic Catechism. Many of these well-meaning folks, unfortunately, have sat under the teachings of less-than-careful Bible-church preachers and pastors who approach Catholicism with a cluster of flawed categories that make even a charitable reading of the Catechism almost impossible.”

    I believe the aforementioned writer has refuted extremely well, those questions that were relevant to what he wrote on. He was bombarded with many questions, many which were not relevant to what he had previously written.

    To ignore or omit is not to accept a contrary notion.

    Your question: “James insists that Christians must keep the OC Law, but Peter and Paul disagree. Please tell me the official RC church position on this conundrum. “

    Your debate is not with the Catholic Church but with God. God’s Word does not contradict itself. Any attempt to do so should be reconsidered. There may be different audiences at different times, ad thus different things stressed. However, in totality, The Word of God stands as Truth.

    Specifically regarding the Catholic Church and the issue you question :

    CCC 121 “ The Old Testament is an indispensable part of Sacred Scripture. It’s books are divinely inspired and retain permanent value, for the Old Covenant has never been revoked “

    The Old Covenant has been surpassed, but not revoked. The New is the source of all salvation even for those who adhere to the old. Jesus came to fulfill.

    Great post. Worth a repost.

    This is not a forum to school you on the absolute truths of Catholicism. I have purposely avoided citing the writings of renowned Catholic theologians like Augustine, Aquinas, Newman Benedict (after whom colleges and universities have been named and their writings form part of the standard theological curriculum even in Evangelical colleges.).

    I have tried to present in summary form those Protestant theologians who after years of study and scholarship, some trying to prove that Catholicism is wrong, actually ended up converting to Catholicism. In fact the preeminent Lutheran theologian of his times, Rev. Richard Neuhaus not only converted to Catholicism, he became a Catholic priest.

    But all this is of not avail. DeprogrammerLiberalism attempts his hand at playing internet theologian with disparate scriptural quotes as do many of the others whose singular tact appears to be to let loose waterfalls of scriptural quotes. From this premise they argue that Catholic doctrine is wrong, or worse that “their” interpretations of scripture is the correct one.

    What these Bible Christian don’t appear to understand is that is exactly what proves my point. This is why we Catholics have Petrine authority and a Catholic Catechism, and a Catholic Mass, and a Catholic veneration to the Mother of God that is for all, in all nations, and for all times.

    Despite written historical references by the early Church fathers, and the Synod of Rome in AD 382, a full eleven centuries before the heresy of Protestantism and its thousands of variants washed ashore, and whose beliefs have been vindicated by some of the greatest theological minds known to making, we still have amoreperfectunion naively telling us that he is still “waiting for a list of authoritative traditions.” The answer is easy.

    We have several traditions such as the Catholic sacraments. These traditions complement scripture as do ritual and practice. We have Petrine authority. We have the Catholic Mass. These are cogently explained in the Catholic Catechism, but if you don’t care to spend serious time reading this, there is not much we can do here.

    Deprogrammerliberalism captures the sheer shallowness of Bible Christianity by supply a menu of scriptural quotes, and providing us with “his” definitive interpretation of these passages.

    Here’s an example of sheer nonsense. He tells us:

    “Why would Jesus say, “For God so loved the world” - past tense? Why would He not have said, “For God so loves the world” - present tense? Would it not make more sense, if God does indeed love the world?”

    It does not occur to Deprogrammerliberalism that when we discuss God doing an action from outside time, we are often stuck with either using past tense or present tense when really God’s actions are not past, present or future, they are all of them and none of them.

    But this is what happens when Bible Christians don’t have an Augustine or Aquinas or Newman, or the early Church fathers. They rush to third-rate bloggers for a quick cut and paste argument.

    metmon; smvoice, elsie;and wvkayaker essentially keep telling us that they are unable to make the intellectual leap between the personal lives of saints, sinners, random utterances of individuals, and official belief.

    We are speaking here of the latter. Formal beliefs. Billy Graham may be a nice and honorable man, but his heresy is no different from Joel Osteen or David Koresh in their failure to admit to Catholic belief based on scripture, the sacred oral tradition (John 21:25); and ritual and practice and most of all revelation in the Church’s choosing of God’s authentic written word against the gnostic writings.

    elsie apparently expects the Nicene Creed to contain all the elements of belief. So she writes:

    “Nothing in there about Mary except and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, Nothing in there about Canonizing ‘Saints’”
    You may now understand the rut of Protestantism.

    The dogma that saints are to be venerated and invoked as set forth in the profession of faith of Trent (cf. Denz. 1867) has as its correlative the power to canonize. . . . St. Thomas Aquinas says, “Honor we show the saints is a certain profession of faith by which we believe in their glory, and it is to be piously believed that even in this the judgment of the Church is not able to err” (Quodl. 9:8:16).

    But now at least we know where wvkayaker “cult theory” is coming from. He writes:

    “It is a group of people indoctrinated into the “traditions” that have been told to ignore what they see in Scripture.”

    “Group of people!” “indoctrinated!” This is beyond breathtaking. Thus all the great Catholic thinkers, and Protestant scholars are just a “group of people’ who have been “indoctrinated”?

    May be you should go down this illustrious list of Catholic converts that include Judge Robert Bork, Judge Thomas, Robert Novak (Jewish). But here’s an A-Z List of CONVERTS to Catholicism.

    I repeat this is not a place to offer Bible Christians a comprehensive schooling in Catholic theology. So here’s a work below (under $15 on Amazon) written by a former evangelist who converted to Catholicism.

    It is written by Dave Armstrong (a former Protestant campus missionary) and is aptly titled: “A Biblical Defense of Catholicism.”

    You may try reading and absorbing this before you again keep posting blogger’s versions of scripture.

    “But catholics don’t worship Mary....... “

    That is correct. However, we can’t stop the illiterate from being illiterate, and thinking otherwise.

    “Catholics will still worship Mary.”

    People who state this are either uneducated, ignorant, or bearing false witness.

    ” We just do not worship her like Catholics do.”

    That statement is bearing false witness as it is stated clearly, by authoritative Catholic sources that Catholics do not worship Mary.

    The question that remains, is, “does your religion have a line of succession from Christ to the Apostles, to their Successors, that is unbroken? This is the only church that can claim to be the original church initiated by Jesus Christ.

    “A Catholic woman I knew who was a worshipper of Mary”

    Either the Catholic is in error of Catholicism, or somebody is bearing false witness against her.

    “Could Bruce Jenner ever be pope?”

    No. But he could lead a mega church or a simple gathering in a house.
