by faith I love your theology…..Kill em all, and let god (Roman Catholic Church) sort them out.
Arnaud-Amaury wrote to Pope Innocent III, “Today your Holiness, twenty thousand heretics were put to the sword, regardless of rank, age, or sex.” The permanent population of Béziers at that time was then probably no more than 5,000, but local refugees seeking shelter within the city walls could conceivably have increased the number to 20,000.
How can a organization call itself Christian and commit such atrocities?
This is one of the reasons I reject Roman Catholicism, most of the Protestant Churches, and even Latter Day Saints for their Meadows Mountain Massacre.
You will know them by their fruits.
The Albigensian Crusade or Cathar Crusade (1209–1229) was a 20-year military campaign initiated by Pope Innocent III to eliminate Catharism in Languedoc, in the south of France.
The Crusade was prosecuted primarily by the French crown and promptly took on a political flavour, resulting in not only a significant reduction in the number of practicing Cathars but also a realignment of the County of Toulouse, bringing it into the sphere of the French crown and diminishing the distinct regional culture and high level of Aragonese influence.
Once again Smalls takes a protion of the story and paints with a broad brush.
The French crown prosecuted and reported what HE did.
So now all Catholic's want to kill everybody?
remove the timber from your own eye Smalls are filled with hate and lies.

“”When I say Hebraic studies I mean idioms, phraseology, types and shadows and ancient customs and practices”".
Can you list a few of each?

by faith is a Hack for the “Roman” Catholic Church.
He is a excellent writer & debates well. However, is final authority, his only source of church history, doctrine, or even history in general is the “Roman” Catholic Church. He will consider any other information. Check out his previous posts at: http://www.theblaze.com/user/by-faith/.
Discussing anything with by-faith is a waste of your time. He’s been blinded. His god is the “Roman Catholic Church” . It’s his only and final authority. Be warned.
More free education for you Smalls

Could you explain your statement: “The church that Jesus established was lost upon the death of the last apostle; there was a ‘falling away’ (apostasy) as Paul predicted, and would be restored in the ‘latter days”. With scripture?????

If the Pre-Trib Rapture is correct, then why didn’t the early church believe it? or Teach it.
Also, the doctrine originated with Margaret McDonald in 1830. The theory was promoted by the Friends Church (Darby).
How do you explain this: Prior to 1970, if you asked most Christians from any denomination about the Rapture Theory, then wouldn’t even know what you were talking about. Let alone believe.
This whole Rapture Theory got going when Hal Lindsy’s Book Late Great Planet Earth came out, and the people at the Dallas Seminary started promoting it.
Personally, I believe that you get your Hebrew studies from YouTube video’s. If you had studied Hebrew & Greek on your own, you would not be promoting the false Rapture Theory.
I suppose the first person coming along performing miracles, and blowing lightening out his eyes, smoke out his rectum, and offers to fly you away to safety, you’ll jump on the chance. Have a nice trip.
God’s Elect puts on the whole armor of God, and knows that Satan, anti-christ, demons, and other powers of darkness, can’t hurt them.

I see your still YouTube preaching THERAPTURECOMES.

You sure like leading with your chin.
Your about to be clobbered concerning Latter Day Saint theology.

Put your Armor on. The real serpent can’t touch you.
January 9, 2014 at 6:56pm
You know…because the Bible is so clear and easily understood.
Your correct- But you have to let the Bible interpret itself. You can not add to it, or take anything away. That’s what the 27,000 different forms of Christianity do
-add to or take away.

“” To them, going to church was just saying meaningless prayers and doing rituals. There was no movement of the Holy Spirit.”"
So true so true…………

Another case of a group interpreting the Bible for their own use. Serpent?
The Serpent is just another name for Satan, Lucifer, Dragon, the little rock, and the phony anti-christ (instead of Christ) who arrives at the end times. Whom, almost everyone except God’s Elect will worship.
If your a Christian, and one of God’s Elect, you do not need to fear the Serpent or Satan. You have power over him, and his followers, and they know it!
If you want to play with snakes, lizards, scorpions or what ever, go a head. But your Spiritual Armour listed in the Book of Ephesians is not for them.
Stop listening to others including, Hollywood, churches, preachers, prophets, bishops, traditions of men, and read the Bible.
Small voice, I stopped listening to my Bishop, then, my dog ran off, my girlfriend left me and the river ran over it's banks and flooded my house....No, wait.....that was just a county song.
How about I just stop listening to you?
Seriously, though, I believe you are completely right about the true meaning of Ephesians (and especially Mark 16:18).
The real serpent is unfortunately not so easily caged, and without Christ his poison will harm us terribly.

Men work skirts and dresses for thousands of years. If I remember right, the first Westerners to wear pants were the Roman Calvary around 200-300 AD. Pants are better than skirts when fighting from a horse. Romans learned that east toward Persia when fighting Mongols.
What we have here is a combination of Religion and Culture. Not just Religion.
We do the same thing here in the West. Except not with clothing, but with Pagan customs, that we have incorporated in our theologies. Examples would be bunnies, baskets, eggs, trees, holly and mistletoe.
We say a women should not wear Men’s clothing in Church. But, when that command was written, Men wore skirts! Pants never existed!
Things are always more complex when you take a honest look at them…..
Many many years ago I was a Trustee in a Seventh Day “Baptist” Church. I used to be a real fanatical promoter of the 7th day Sabbath. Promoted my Church every where I went. Then one day the Lord told me to read the 4th Commandment. I mean really read it. It wasn’t long after that I had a life experience similar to that of Job. For almost a year, I could read nothing but the Book of Job. Read the book of Job, prayed, and ask myself what had happened. The Lord made it clear to me then, that He was in charge of my life, not me.
Lot’s of Church promoting people on the Blaze, but not much from the Holy Spirit.
Your an exception…

Watch out for By Faith. He can twist anything. He’ll do his best to overwhelm you with questions and Roman Catholic propaganda from Roman Catholic Web Sites. He’s better than the communists and liberal at offering disinformation.
Don’t waste your time with him.
January 8, 2014 at 8:37pm
Don’t get into a argument with By Faith. He’ll just try to get under your skin. try to get you upset. He’s a sharp writer, and knows how to twist things. The Roman Church is his god. By Faith is real good that trying to over whelm people with endless questions, trying to get you frustrated and off balance. Most people have learned to ignore him. Don’t let him get to you. All his facts come from the Roman Church, which has done their best to white wash their side of history. Read the latest account of the Spanish Armada on a Catholic Web Page. It’s been so whitewashed it’s hilarious. The truth is GOD sent the Tempest to chastise the Roman Catholic Church. Let em whine…….. stay away from By Faith.
January 8, 2014 at 8:25pm
Your wasting your time with By Faith. He and his friend Gita are Roman Church hacks. They troll the Blaze for Roman Church converts. Lot’s of cut & paste. Abusive in nature, and then always screaming they are being persecuted by others. All of their information comes from Roman Church sources only. If you try to prove a point, they will say your documentation is false, and only their documentation is true. Spewing Roman Catholic dogma, and never even considering other historical sources. You can’t discuss anything with them. Most people just ignore them. It’s a waste of time to communicate with closed minds. Their “god” is the Roman Catholic Church. Those with the gift of discernment will not find the presence of the Holy Spirit. Stay away from them.

If any of you had bothered to read all of my posts posted here and below, then you would know.
1) Mary remained a Virgin or
2) Mary enjoyed relations with Joseph and had additional children or
3). The children were Josephs children from a previous marriage, and his first wife died, then:
Non of the choices above matter to me. Whether it’s option 1,2, 3, or a combination of options. It makes no difference to me. To me, none of the options above “de-grade” Mary in any way. For me, Mary is still the Most blessed of Woman, and the Mother of Our Lord. All these little arguments just take everyone’s eyes off Jesus.
Studying the Eastern Orthodox Churches, and I am very impressed with what I am finding. Be free. Think for yourself. Don’t listen to the name callers.
