    Robbie George posted a Facebook warning about this:

    As Maggie Gallagher has pointed out, if Donald Trump is elected president he will lock in Obama’s countless gay and transgender mandates and initiatives throughout the agencies of the federal government and in the armed forces by giving them the validation of a Republican administration. He has never promised to repeal or remove a single one–even the ones unconstitutionally imposed on the states. Nor has he made concrete promises to protect religious liberty and the rights of conscience which are so dramatically under assault around the country. Establishment Republicans who have been dying to surrender on these and other social issues will be delighted. Trump will be taking the Party in precisely the direction they want it to go. Getting the stuff they don’t like (and are embarrassed by in their social circles) out of the party platform next time will be a piece of cake.

    “Rosaries, scapulars, holy water, crucifixes, statues”
    First off not everything is in the bible.
    John 21:25New Living Translation (NLT)
    25 Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written.
    2 Thessalonians 2:15So then, brethren, stand firm, and hold fast the instructions which ye have been taught, whether by word or by our letter
    …and the list goes on, ad nauseam.”
    The list of God will always go on He has no limits.

    “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man”
    .1 John 4:6 which says, “We are of God. Whoever knows God listens to us, and he who is not of God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.”. This is very powerful one should read and meditate on these words not just gloss over them.

    No one is forced to be celibate—because no one is forced to be a Catholic priest. Priests freely choose to embrace the commitment of celibacy for the sake of serving God’s kingdom in a heroic way. In regards to celibacy of church leaders, in 1 Corinthians chapter 7, the apostle Paul teaches, “An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs — how he can please the Lord. But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world — how he can please his wife— and his interests are divided” (1 Corinthians 7:32-34).
    “Infallible men”…
    Yelp! He sure did, John 20:21 “Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.”
    How did the Father send them? Matthew 28:18 ” With all power from heaven” That’s how.
    John 14:16 “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever.” That means then and now not just one generation, or the doctrine of infallibility forever.

    Salvation dispensed through sacraments…
    the sacraments of the, Eucharist is not a symbol 1 Corinthians 11:27 Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord.How can one be guilty of a symbol?

    2 Samuel 12: 13,18 The child died punishment for sin even when forgiven
    Rev 21::27 nothing with the stain of sin shall enter heaven
    Hebrews 12 : 22,27 The spirits of just men made perfect
    1 Corinthian 3: 13,15 For
    “Church leaders forbidden to marry…”
    It’s in the Bible why priest gave up marriage for the sake of God” kingdom. For example,
    .Matthew 19:12 12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.
    1 Corinthians 7:32-35
    King James Version (KJV)
    32 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:
    33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife
    • Why priest don’t marry.
    Mark 10: 28 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.
    29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s,30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

    cont..
    I Corinthians 3:11-15 may well be the most straightforward text in all of Sacred Scripture when it comes to Purgatory:
    For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any one builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble—each man’s work will become manifest; for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. If the work which any man has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If any man’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire.
    No Christian sect I know of even attempts to deny this text speaks of the judgment of God where the works of the faithful will be tested after death. It says our works will go through “fire,
    Matthew 12:32New International Version (NIV)
    32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.
    Here Jesus was speaking to thousands of Jews who believe in the concept of purgatory.
    2 Maccabees 12:46Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA) Book of the origional bible that was tossed 46 It is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, that they may be loosed from sins.
    This book on the bible was accepted by all Christians for 1500 years until Lutheran and his followers tossed

    “Nor do I accept your fallible interpretations” I agree with I wouldn’t accept my interpretations either. However I gladly accept the interperations of the Church founded by Jesus because we have his promise that he will lead the holy Spirit to guide it of which the gates of hell will not prevail.
    …”or man-made (catholic) traditions not found in the 1st century church.”
    “Priests offering sacrifices for sin” priests never offer sacrifices for sin in the way you think. and believe…Hebrews 10:11
    Indulgences remitting punishment for sins”…
    Those who attack the Church for its use of indulgences rely upon—and take advantage ignorance.
    Which of these myths do you adhere to ?
    Myth 1: A person can buy his way out of hell with indulgences. Myth 2: A person can buy indulgences for sins not yet committed. Myth 3: A person can “buy forgiveness” with indulgences. Myth 4: Indulgences were invented as a means for the Church to raise money. Myth 6: A person can buy indulgences. Myth 7: A person used to be able to buy indulgences.
    “Christians praying for souls in purgatory…
    In Matthew 5:24-25, Jesus is even more explicit about Purgatory.
    Make friends quickly with your accuser, while you are going with him to court, lest your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you be put in prison; truly I say to you, you will never get out till you have paid the last penny (Matthew 5:25-26).

    for the ten thousand’s time I believe 100% of 1 Corinthians 12:6
    However I don’t accept your man made fallible interpretations.

  • [-1] July 20, 2016 at 2:02am

    cont,
    I, unlike you, didn’t insert private interpretations…what I did do is question your assertions regarding the Holy Spirit (Gifts of the Spirit) which Scripture clearly states…
    “God empowers them all in everyone”…
    Ans this is not a bible quote

    “EVERYONE…ALL BELIEVERS…
    NOT just the ones YOU want to believe (apostles, prophets, teachers).
    So the bibie got this wrong? repeat Luke 10:16 “He that hears you hears me; and he that despises you despises me; and he that despises me despises him that sent me.” Again It’s too obvious These church leaders were given full authority.

    “Every word of Christ which is received in the heart by faith, comes accompanied by this Divine breathing: the Holy Spirit, and without this there is neither light nor life”
    Ans Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved …

  • [-1] July 20, 2016 at 2:01am

    cont
    Ephesians 1:13 ‘In Him you also, when you heard the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your Salvation, and Believed in Him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit.’
    Well then accept the truth of Jesus’ church
    saved John 14:7 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. So truth is a person! To deny the truth is to deny Jesus. What did Jesus tell Pilot John 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. So truth is obviously an important commodity. So what does Scripture say is the ” pillar and ground of the truth”? “? In 1 Timothy 3:15 hmm it reads the pillar and ground of the truth.” is what the Bible? NOPE. ” But if I tarry long, that you may know how you ought to behave yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.” So the Bible says, the word of God says it’s the Church not scripture. Therefore, the final authority is God’s Church. So the Church founded by Jesus Christ is an singular visible authoritative church. Think about this, for the Bible to have authority the Church has to have authority. How do we know the Bible has no errors? How do we know which books are suppose to be in the Bible? Because the church tell us so.

    1…Think about this…
    ‘For the Bible to have authority the Church has to have authority’
    Anyone who believes a structural building has more authority over the Word of God than God himself is deceived…period.
    begreen – Jul. 17, 2016 at 7:55pm
    Ans The church is not a building for your info COLOSSIANS 1:24 NKJ
    24 . . . the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church

    2…
    ‘Only the author of the Bible has that right. That is the Catholic Church’
    GOD is the author of the Bible…NOT the catholic church.
    Ans Jesus said My Church Matthew 16:18-
    18 And I tell you that you are Peter,[a] and on this rock I will build my church”
    Anyone who separates the Word of God from the Church, the Body of Christ, creates his own church in his own image

    John 1:1 ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God’
    The word does not denote bible
    2 Timothy 3:16 ‘ALL SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of GOD, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness’
    Ans Look up profitable it does not mean everything.

    It is the Word of God that saves…NOT the words of some earthly sinful man.
    Ans nowhere in the bible does it say by simply hearing the word of God you will be saved.

    ‘From the start your quote is false’
    LOL, is that so…Well, unfortunately for you, it’s NOT my quote, it’s YOUR quote. Go on, read the post YOU wrote that contains YOUR false quote…
    “begreen – Jul. 17, 2016 at 7:55pm”
    LOL I see now how why you are so confused in all your silly man made belief . You have a serious problem when it comes to comprehension .Best you get help and reread very carefully.
    ————————————————————————————–
    ‘For all the other bible parts you pointed out,
    i believe in all of them as the inspire word of God’
    Yet you failed to address even one of them directly.
    “How about YOU answer a few questions first….”
    So you gave up trying answering my questions by presenting silly questions and answering them yourself. Note
    “Who gave YOU authority..?”
    Did Christ give YOU the keys..?
    Are YOU infallible..?
    NO..?! Then suffice it to say that YOUR private interpretation(s)…or lack there of, mean nothing, afterall…did you not clearly state that your own quote was false..?!”
    Obviously you are lost in space. If stupid could fly you be a jet.

    Jonny-Blaze “: So a serial rapist and murderer can accept Jesus before his death sentence and be whisked off to heaven where he can hang out with victims he violated and butchered! ”
    Incorrect is why the CC teaches purgatory as it is written. 1 Corinthians 3:1513Every man’s work shall be manifest; for the day of the Lord shall declare it, because it shall be revealed in fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work, of what sort it is. 14If any man’s work abide, which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15If any man’s work burn, he shall suffer loss; but he himself shall be saved, yet so as by fire.
    Note the day of the lord is judgment day. As by fire and be saved? Won’t be saved in hell or suffer in heaven so what the heck is this other place? You can call it what ever you want the catholic church calls it purgatory.

    “Such a letter would gradually be accepted as authoritative as it was an instance of inscripturated Apostolic Tradition.”

    Gradually be accepted? By what authority did these or any other bible scriptures were added to the books of the bible? By the way there were also many books by popular opinion were not added in the same process. What was the process in was not some gradual circumstance.

    “As I already said, quoting Bible verses at people who don’t think your god is real is meaningless.”
    IAm I to listen to your man made fallible view point over God’s? Hardly.

  • July 19, 2016 at 12:49am

    blinknight your reasoning is not logical what you are advocating is that right or wrong can be reversible like both christian and non christian at the same time. Illogical dude big time in fact.

  • July 19, 2016 at 12:40am

    TheGrtDcptn “‘The scriptures are not to be expou ( nded by any one’s private spirit’” From the start your quote is false . Now for the right one ” (2 Peter 1:20) It means, No prophecy of scripture is made by private interpretation: NOTE the bible says interpretation not SPIRIT!
    Further you failed to reply to the bible verses I laid out for you. So go back and read God’s word as of the need of having life in you by receiving His body.
    Also for all the other bible parts you pointed out,
    i believe in all of them as the inspire word of God but I don’t believe in your man made fallible interpretation..
