  1. well when you get into the book of Revelations there is plenty of Global warming-- but nothing man could do anything about ~~~
  2. they didn't at the time-- but the cold fact is that every Christian should have shouted Crucify Him-- because with out his death on the cross and shed blood we would all be headed to hell--- good point- he was actually crucified on thursday- that year it was a high Sabbath hence the breaking of the legs of the other prisoners-- and when you count from Thursday you actually get 3 days and three nights with out having to make excuses when some on tells you the math isn't right for a good friday!~~~~
  3. I would immediately reverse the gift so I didn't have it anymore~~~~
  4. another significant point of disagreement is that Bible Churches admire a young Jewish girl named Mary for her obedience to God, and the Roman Church worships her as the traditional Queen of Heaven (actually predating the Birth of Christ), and they pray to her so she will put in a good word for them with Jesus~
  5. I wish for my Catholic friends and family they could see the Temple Veil torn asunder and look straight at the simple saving love of Jesus--- He says "Come unto me all ye who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest"-- he is the Sabbath, he is the rest- you don't have to jump through Roman Hoops and wade through centuries of pointless intellectual thought about who God is and what he wants to see God in heaven-- just come to him as a little child-- your eternity depends on it
  6. concerning matters of doctrine and salvation-- I would say that is a very good idea-- interesting History maybe- but not something to save souls
  7. We know that Jesus gave all authority to Peter to determine what was right or wrongand who would or would not be allowed in heaven in Matthew 16 18And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. That is where the Roman Catholic Church says it gets its Apostolic authority. Oh wait, they must have stopped reading there--- the disciples Came to Jesus= regular believers and he gave them the same authority-- plus he said if 2 or 3 are gathered in his name- he is there- not the name of the Roman Church~~~~ Matthew 18 18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
  8. Not only is Scripture a way to know God, but so is Sacred Tradition as we see in 2 Thessalonians 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Oh Wait---- 2 Thessalonians was penned around 53 AD or so---- so any Sacred Tradition introduced after that isn't Tradition-- Its addition~~~~~~~~
  9. when I used to ask questions I would get a nine paragraph answer explaining the unexplainable- when a simple 2 word "trust Jesus" would have been a better reply
  10. There are many non- biblical Books and Guides for a successful Christian life-- but with out Biblical authority its not wise to stake your eternal existence on them-- but this is one of my favorites Canasta Rules These are the Canasta rules as defined by "Hoyle's Rules of Games". Overview Your goal is to beat your opponent by scoring more points. You score points by melding cards, and making as many canastas as possible. A canasta is a meld of at least seven cards of the same rank. Each player starts with 15 cards in hand. Yours are visible at the bottom of the window. Both players take turns in drawing one card from the stock, and discarding one card on the discard pile (in that order). Both players take turns in drawing the first card. After drawing a card, a player may meld cards if (s)he wants to. Cards are melded in columns of at least three cards; e.g. you can meld three Kings, or four Fives. You cannot meld sequences like Four-Five-Six. Once a card has been melded, it cannot be taken back into the hand (except with the Undo meld option). When a player has melded his cards, he ends his turn by discarding a card. At that point, his melded cards are checked to see if they conform to the canasta rules. Discarding a card is not necessary if the player can go out by melding all of his cards. Instead of drawing a card from the stock, a player may take the entire discard pile. However, this is only allowed if he can directly meld the top card. A hand is over when one of the players has no cards left in his hand, or when there are no cards left on the stock. The scores of both players are then computed, and a new hand is dealt. A player can only finish a hand when he has at least one or two canastas, depending on the setting of the corresponding option. A canasta match is over when one of the players reaches 5,000 points.
  11. The Bible says that creation itself is a witness to the creator God-but that doesn't help it also says the Devils believe in God just believing in God is only a first step- and most people do not take a second step---- but to understand the deeper things of God a person needs to have the Hoy Spirit indwelling them--- that is why there is so much disagreement on what scripture means and so many different "Religions of denominations"-- there are not a lot of true Christians around- but many "Christian Club" members
  12. Okay-- This gets my "BEST PROFOUND STATEMENT OF THE WEEK" award- Thank you John D
  13. any issues with mental health? some times that can cause people to be standoffish~
  14. as a Roman Catholic I know you think a Church is defined by its Organizational affiliation. There is NO one church organization that can guarantee Heaven by membership in that church. My comment was related to a true biblical church which maybe a local group of believers or maybe an affiliation of like minded churches. A Bible church adheres to the teaching that salvation is by grace alone ( not earn or accumulated grace) but real undeserved grace. Faith alone in Jesus blood and repentance from sin is sufficient to gain permanent immutable salvation. Because so many Protestant denominations add to that I doubt that they can be considered True Bible Churches. AS far as Sola being a man made doctrine- that is a false Roman Catholic dodge. They know that if the Bible is the sole source of authority 90% of their dogma has to be taken out with the trash. To say I want to play the game of religion but I'm not impressed by the rule book so I am going to add to it is just like saying, I want to play baseball-- but I am going to bring my trap gun to the game and shoot clay pigeons out of the air to score runs--- just plain silly- any clear thinking person can see that
  15. Yes, I will elaborate. First,as you mentioned in your leading statement the RCC derives its authority from scripture- church tradition, and the dictates of the magisterium ( is that spelled right? my spell check has no idea what I am talking about). A true Christian church ( I am excluding almost all modern protestant churchs) derives its authority exclusively from the Bible ~ yes Sola Scriptura which the RCC mocks. Second- A true Christian knows salvation is accomplished in a one time event where the convert throws his(or hers) entire eternal future on the Mercy of Jesus Christ based on his finished sacrifice of shed blood on the cross and the validating seal of forgiveness and triumph over death, his resurrection from the dead. Where as the RCC says the salvation is by grace which is dribbled out drop by drop in the various sacraments until you have accumulated enough grace to be acceptable in Gods eyes- Those two sources of authority and methods of salvation are mutually exclusive and there is no middle ground--- they can not be put into some cosmic ecumenical blender to come out with some "religion" that everybody can be happy with. I am not debating Church authority- I am saying Biblically The Roman Catholic Church is not Christian. In short I am also saying that the RCC and the true Christian Church preach contrary methods of salvation
