  • I Stand With Israel Petition

    We want to send a strong, encouraging message to President Donald Trump concerning the importance of the nation of Israel in relation to God’s Word. Mr. Trump has already made strong statements supporting Jerusalem as Israel's capital and the nation's right to exist and defend herself. Let’s be sure to support President Trump in his decision and encourage him to follow through on his affirmations concerning Jerusalem and the Promised Land. Our goal is to deliver a petition of 1,000,000 signatures to President Trump. Read our Petition!

    • The very last chapter of the last book of Eusebius (Penguin). What history do you dispute? I am saying Constantine created Byzantine Church (prior to him, the Church was persecuted). This Byzantine Church became Eastern Orthodoxy, and out of that church came Roman Catholicism (thanks to that the First Among Equals called the Bishop of Rome became the Pope), and the schism was complete in 1054 A.D.
    • Your history is a bit off there. As for reading Eusebius The History of the Church.... there's ten books. Which last paragraph?
    • Brother Daniel It says the Lord will put an end to sacrifices in the (middle of the week, Daniel 9:27)the end of sacrifice was Jesus crucifixion, leaving 3 1/2 years to complete the week.  The next 3 1/2 years the gospel only went to the Jews, after their rejecting of the gospel & the stoning of Steven 3 1/2 years later which completed the week,  the gospel went to the gentiles.  God bless
    • While I wait for those paragraph numbers, here's some I'll share with you. I'll also provide paragraph numbers and links. 494 At the announcement that she would give birth to "the Son of the Most High" without knowing man, by the power of the Holy Spirit, Mary responded with the obedience of faith, certain that "with God nothing will be impossible": "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be [done] to me according to your word."139 Thus, giving her consent to God's word, Mary becomes the mother of Jesus. Espousing the divine will for salvation wholeheartedly, without a single sin to restrain her, she gave herself entirely to the person and to the work of her Son; she did so in order to serve the mystery of redemption with him and dependent on him, by God's grace:140   As St. Irenaeus says, "Being obedient she became the cause of salvation for herself and for the whole human race."141 Hence not a few of the early Fathers gladly assert. . .: "The knot of Eve's disobedience was untied by Mary's obedience: what the virgin Eve bound through her disbelief, Mary loosened by her faith."142 Comparing her with Eve, they call Mary "the Mother of the living" and frequently claim: "Death through Eve, life through Mary."143   http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/p122a3p2.htm#494   she's serving the mystery of redemption and her son and dependant upon him all by Gods grace. Doesn't sound like she being called a saviour.   Judas: As I am writing this you replied...... 993 talks about the resurrection.  But I think I found what you were talking about. There is one part that if you ripe it out of context you can make it sound suspicious. So let me do some underlining so nothing important gets missed here.    967 By her complete adherence to the Father's will, to his Son's redemptive work, and to every prompting of the Holy Spirit, the Virgin Mary is the Church's model of faith and charity. Thus she is a "preeminent and . . . wholly unique member of the Church"; indeed, she is the "exemplary realization" (typus)510 of the Church. 968 Her role in relation to the Church and to all humanity goes still further. "In a wholly singular way she cooperated by her obedience, faith, hope, and burning charity in the Saviour's work of restoring supernatural life to souls. For this reason she is a mother to us in the order of grace."511 969 "This motherhood of Mary in the order of grace continues uninterruptedly from the consent which she loyally gave at the Annunciation and which she sustained without wavering beneath the cross, until the eternal fulfillment of all the elect. Taken up to heaven she did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold intercession continues to bring us the gifts of eternal salvation . . . . Therefore the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix."512 970 "Mary's function as mother of men in no way obscures or diminishes this unique mediation of Christ, but rather shows its power. But the Blessed Virgin's salutary influence on men . . . flows forth from the superabundance of the merits of Christ, rests on his mediation, depends entirely on it, and draws all its power from it."513 "No creature could ever be counted along with the Incarnate Word and Redeemer; but just as the priesthood of Christ is shared in various ways both by his ministers and the faithful, and as the one goodness of God is radiated in different ways among his creatures, so also the unique mediation of the Redeemer does not exclude but rather gives rise to a manifold cooperation which is but a sharing in this one source."514 http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/p123a9p6.htm#969 Judas speaking: Paragraph 969 I think is the one that brings the concern. The wording can be misunderstood in the way that Protestants do. But here's the problem with understanding 969 as to say that Mary is a redeemer, Paragraph 970 (the very next paragraph) says that she or any other created being can not be a redeemer or take the place of Jesus. Paragraph 970 completes refutes the Protestant understanding of 969. I will concede that the language used in 969 is difficult to understand, especially from the outside looking in and having anti-Marion biases in place (biased comment is not ment to be insulting. I'm Canadian so natural I would have a bias towards Canada on global issues we all have biases). But the language used in 970 is plain and straight forward. Side bar: sorry for the formatting. Something is gliching with my phone. Cheers and God Bless
