CC re 2 Tim 3:15-17 that you quote….back the truck up and add 2 Tim 3:14 into the context….St Paul encourages Timothy to keep what he has been taught because of who taught him. 2 Tim 3:15-17 mentions no connection of works to salvation, nor of the self-sufficiency of good works, only that the scriptures equip him for good works…just as air is necessary for life, it is not the only requirement..food and water are also necessary. Scripture does not state that it is the only thing needed for salvation, nor that is is self-sufficient. The rest of what is needed for salvation is in the Magisterium and the sacraments – this is why you need to go ‘extra-biblical’.

CC re “flavour” – why the desire to obfuscate one’s true identity? how can one have a ‘truthful’ exchange if one party hides their face? to say it doesn’t matter which faith one belongs to shows a lack of understanding of faith. when someone attacks my Catholic faith, i kinda like to know who it is. my point in the context of my original post is that one ought to examine themselves before pointing fingers at someone else. Although I do get tired of Catholic bashers by times, I am not surprised by it. Christ told us that we would be reviled and have all kinds of calumny thrown at us. The fact that the evil one has infiltrated the Catholic Church is no surprise, nor is the fact that he is concentrating his efforts against the Catholic faith in particular – he is trying to take down his largest threat first. Also, I am not attemping to change the topic at all – I am responding to what Rap posted – he opened the door. The defense of my religion is an obligation given me and all Catholics by the Lord. Some non-Catholics have been used to getting away with whatever calumny they wish to commit against Catholics, and don’t like it when we do stand up for our faith. Do we condone sexual abuse of children..of course not. Do we want to be rid of this plague? of course we do. Does your faith tradition have its own problems, too? More than likely. We are all sinners. To label my Catholic faith as ‘satanic’ isn’t very godly either, and I will defend it against detractors.

The Eucharist is not pointless nor evil…Jesus commanded believers to commemorate His sacrifice in Luke 22:19 through the Eucharist…so, if non-belief is rebellion and deserving of eternal damnation, and if opposition to God is satanic, then you have condemned yourself, because you don’t believe in nor commemorate the Eucharistic sacrifice which Jesus commanded that we remember and keep. Fortunately for you and for many, Jesus’ sacrifice is still being commemorated in the Catholic Church in observance of His command, and He awaits your approach to His table, to the Feast of the Lamb, His living presence.
 March 21, 2015 at 4:16pm
and to which ‘flavour’ of Christianity do you profess to belong, so that others who may wish to bash your religion can pick it apart and denounce it as a cult? or are you not an equal opportunity basher?

Why is allowing sharia law into the US even an issue? separation of church and state as the dems like to say…US law should prevail..anything else is borderline sedition…you live in the US? then you live by US law, there is no other
true, but Now you got folks from different parties talking about the folks from various religious groups of folks who are doing terrible things to folks who are other folks, and in general, folks are suffering, but it's pretty random and our folks shouldn't bother thinking about bad folks because our folks need to be thinking about our poor folks, minority folks, and folks who happened to find themselves on us folk's side of the border……yikes!

See the song “He’s my son” by mark Schultz. God doesn’t put these precious little ones here for us to change them, they are perfect in His creation. He puts them here to change *us*.
It does if you can harvest them for a crab louie salad.
As we all sit and watch and do nothing but cry and moan
its the morphine talking.
It would't make any difference if both houses voted it down or defunded it. Obam would do an executive order cancelling them out. Congress is a gloryified name for gophers. With the NSA spying Obama has all the dirty dirt on all that he feels might buck him.
Like Barry does't have any dirt in his past. Let him dig up dirt.
Congress should demand that Barry give LEGAL PROOF of what his LEGAL NAME IS for the history books........legal name changes on paper !
His legal last name was not "Obama" on his orignal birth certificate because his mother was NOT married to his father because his father was currently married to his second wife. His grandma screwed up with that Hawaiian birth certificate. And Barry's mother would have been crazy to give him his father's last name at birth, that is IF she could
How are you going to stop Obamacare? Did you miss the part in the Bible that says Joseph then moved into be taxed by the Romans?
Lets hear it for big government, cheers.
Is Rush adopting the Obama, "The other side tells me this in private" phoney baloney arguments? It defies logic that a progressive/liberal/Democrat would say anything to Rush Limbaugh that was not some kind of lunatic threat. Just as I don't believe for a second that President Obama would speak to anyone that would give a differing opinion on any subject.
You aren't going to stop Obamacare, and you should embrace it.
WHY should we "embrace" being taxed by the "Romans"?
How does that help?
doesn't care Health Plan. It means a 100 million jump in costs for Delta Airlines - Whoa - what ever happened to "it will be cheaper" ??? No wonder no one wants this bill.
All those wonderful people in Congress & in Unions have waivers; the average person is going to get "screwed" badly over this Obama
Well I guess you just aren't the Christian you thought you were, because Joseph moved in to be taxed by the Romans. And I'll give you a hint, that's why Jesus liked the tax collector.
TIM... i am EXACTLY the Christian i think i am.
I'm just not the Christian YOU think that I think i am.
I don't want to diss Rush, but when he says, “I have a lot of Democrats privately telling me they would love to be able to stop Obamacare..." I'd ask, "how many is a "lot", three maybe? Ten?" How many is a lot?
Yes, maybe there are 10 or 15 registered Democrats in the country who disagree with the idea of providing health care to their children up to age 26 under their current plan (which is now in place) and disagree with the idea that insurance companies can refuse coverage to newborns who with a "preexisting condition." Or adults. Far more likely than not any adult who has been to a doctor at any time in his or her life, especially anyone over 40 has a preexisting condition: high blood pressure, bad knee, migraines, or basically anything you've ever been treated for that might recur.
My recommendation? Keep your job. As you know the Republicans have several alternatives to Obamacare that they are promoting under the banner of defunding and replacing Obamacare with something better and far more fair to insurance companies and to all Americans in this great country.
Little needs to be said about the Republican alternative to Obamacare, an alternative that would protect you from being dropped from your insurance when you get sick or refused insurance because you lost your job and have high blood pressure. Republicans are aggressively promoting our alternative although -surprise! - the MSM doesn't cover it.
It is high time these congressmen and women search deep within themselves and beg God for the courage to vote for and defund Obamacare. I can't help but wonder if they are being called by God to sacrifice their political 'careers', if need be, and risk being political martyrs who will go down in the history books as American heroes who defeated the Progressive agenda in our time. As for fearing administrative repercussions, if they do the right thing God is on their side, so who can truly be against them? Are they going to worry about the one who can destroy the body, or the one who can destroy the soul? They were elected by the people to be the voice of the people, and to be guardians of a nation founded Under God which is the greatest nation the world has ever seen. Pray for our congress, that they will not allow this nation to squander the freedom God has given us.
Your not even a moderate democrat.... you are fully blown brainwashed by the the left and the 'MSM' your so confident in. Your sophomoric sarcasm is dully noted. I know this wont wake you from your brainwashed sleep but obamacare is just a means to an end for the progressive, left, socialist, communist, anti-American agenda. Decrease Capitalism, hence personal prosperity, keep all people 'eeeeequal'. equally needy and reliant on government, which will increase power and control for the leftist elites. Im sure you dont ever wonder why the left wants all that power........Do you really think obamacare is there for the good of the people? Do you really think the leftist want more power and control for the good of the people?
wake up dinklehead!
@ TWPANDHALFGOLDENS "They were elected by the people to be the voice of the people, and to be guardians of a nation founded Under God which is the greatest nation the world has ever seen. Pray for our congress, that they will not allow this nation to squander the freedom God has given us."
I agree with you, BUT the problem is much more systemic then you can imagine. Consider for several decades that the bomb throwing, cop killing, America hating, God-hating radicals of the 60's have control of the teacher unions and teacher colleges and dictate all public policy; worse with every generation - now we have school children where LESS than 10% believe in ABSOLUTE right and wrong! These amoral, unethical, blown by every wind of doctrine types, end justifies the means are the judges (who have no problem with Sharia), the police (who can't see the murder of a white can be as racially motivated as murder of a black), the military (who is being corrupted to accept deviance and perversion as normal - who the government made up of people put through the liberal education indoctrination machine to make a willing tool of the state now define our Founders as extremists!)
I could go on and on - nothing is isolated - its all connected GET TO THE ROOT:
MOST IMPORTANT MOVIE EVER MADE ON AMERICA. PERIOD
Watch and share with everyone you know:
Agenda: Grinding America Down on-line FREE
OBAMACARE is nothing that it claimed to be. BEFORE IT, we had 85% of AMERICANS covered, 15% not covered but able to receive care at Emergency Rooms.
Some how, the GOV. had become involved in Health Care, (several decades earlier) and this ridiculous HMO stuff began.
WHY do we need a 3rd party? I've asked them and they say the Dr's wanted it (for billing/ etc) but when I ask the Dr's they say: WE were forced to use them. SO rising health care costs are attributed to: 3rd Party Payments; Fraud; (Theft); Government Cronyism. The Hospitals who have made it without GOV. intervention are excellent examples of how a real Hospital can be run...without Staph Infections, without $60 band aids, without operation errors.
Insurance Companies who have to compete across state lines regulate themselves. the profit Margin is very low (like Grocery stores) and depend upon volume but Politicians (Obama types) have made them the BOOGIE men just so THEY (Obama types ) could gain CONTROL of 1/6th of our ECONOMY and total control of the people. It's also part of the WRECK AMERICA - from every angle so his Muslim Brotherhood can more easily take over. BTW: Assad is SHI'ITE and REBELS are SUNNI...Obama is SUNNI.. and while I detest Assad, I would just bomb his palace and be done with it. but NONE OF OUR TROOPS over there. HELL, VA. is giving out bonus's while our Vets are hurting. go to DON'TFUNDIT.com and sign petition/donate. We only have 30 days to stop this

"How are you going to stop Obamacare? Did you miss the part in the Bible that says Joseph then moved into be taxed by the Romans?"
Hmmm... I guess you completely missed Jesus' whole POINT in his "render unto Ceasar" statement? Ever wonder why the gathered crowd "marvelled" at a statement so obvious?
The Pharasees were attempting to entrap Jesus into saying something they could arrest him for, something like don't pay your taxes to the Romans. Jesus' followers were known to be rather cranky about Roman taxes, so they tried to entrap Jesus with a question about paying taxes to the Romans. Jesus pointed to the image of Ceasar and replied, "Render unto Ceasar that which is Ceasar's. Render unto God that which is God's." In this statement, context is EVERYTHING. You see, to Jews of that time, Israel was STILL God's country, even though occupied by Rome. To their view, there was nothing in Israel that belonged to the Romans except the things they brought with them. Everything else in Israel belonged to God. Jesus was even pointing directly at the Roman coin when he said that, basically saying in effect, "Rome doesn't have the right to tax the people of Israel because we belong to God, not Rome," without uttering the words that would get him arrested. THAT was why the crowd "marvelled".
Republicans need to use a tactic that is being used by Obama!!!
When dealing with the funding of Obamacare, only fund the few, and I mean few, things in the law that can be agreed on. This needs to be done with exact wording, so as to not allow the moneys' to be used for the entire law. Then, go on every network and tell the American People that you are funding Obamacare!!!! Otherwise, defund it!!! Impeach Obama!!! Check Biden for sanity!!!! Then, throw him out!!!
MODERATEREPUBLICAN! It's a joke!!!! "RUSH LIMBAUGH REVEALS WHAT ‘A LOT OF DEMOCRATS’ ARE ‘PRIVATELY’ TELLING HIM!"
It's a dig on OBama! But that's ok, I don't think The Blaze got it either!!!!! Maybe this will help!
There is no coverage for pre existing, You have to get a denial letter, fill out forms and submit to a state run exchange. And in California all that meant was to be put on a waiting list. No one ever mentions that little detail in the media. So much for that fact.
The 26 year olds had no such waiting lists, they go right on because they need those votes. They know those kids weren't going to find good jobs with benefits any time soon.
When I was 17, I had a good job, with full healthcare, paid vacation and sick day. But were under barry's economy now and in California the unemployment for teens is over 30%.
I like Rush. But on the same show yesterday he spoke of how conservative personalities often will not even acknowledge other conservative personalities because it is aiding the competition.
Not sure whether to applaud Beck for not playing that game and recognizing success and intelligent thought regardless of who it is, or to criticize Limbaugh for refusing to acknowledge Beck. He’ll have Levin on his show, but won’t utter Becks name.
Ticks me off just a little, but Rush is a master at what he does. Can’t hate him for that.
What in the hell do Jesus and the bible have to do with ObozoCare? When you start injecting religion in to a debate that has NOTHING to do with religion you lose all credibility.
If the obamination of obama care gets passed and people realize what an obimination it really is, all those
smug liberals in congress will end up losing their jobs they fight so hard to keep, Do they really think we want to keep them in office after what they've done to us?
Still a little time to come clean and say it's a horrible sham to American society and vote it OUT.
All those who are afraid of losing their jobs, I will help do all I can to get you out of office ASAP.
so....they'd send this nation down the tubes rather than do the right thing.. all to save their own briskets? ... tell me, fellas.... did telling Rush grant you absolution?
Not a Cajone....haha
Now my fathers/mothers SSI is not coming in......and my friend as a Vetaran and a gun owner has to under go drug testing because he said the wrong thing at the VA.......the VA will is the leader in Obamacare because they are Government.
Also we know how much Obama cares about our veterans.......Like the 88 yr old Vet who was beaten and killed.
So now we got war ships going to Syria.......I wonder if they will be treated like the 88 yr old Vet when they get back........Take their guns and beat them to death...!!
I don't know what kind of Christian you're talking about folks being, and I don't much care, but you are factually wrong on two counts.
One, Joseph and Mary did not go to Bethlehem to be taxed, they went to be counted as part of a census, because Rome had a residency system similar to the modern Chinese hukou system, where you have to maintain official residency in the city assigned to you by the government (where you were born, unless you get permission to move permanently). Yes, the census would be used to allocate taxes, but they did not go to Bethlehem to pay tax, they went to be counted. This is what it says in the Bible and confirmed in multiple non-biblical sources. Two, Jesus loved the tax collector specifically because the tax collector turned (dedicated his life) to Him -- furthermore Jesus loves everybody, but the point was that the tax collector was saved because he gave himself to God.
I offer this advice in love -- you might want to make sure you know what you are talking about before you criticize other people.
Bottom line is women want the Government OUT OF THEIR BODIES......!!
Obamacare will OWN YOUR SOUL....!!
Obamacare will follow you anywhere you go.....!!
The DMV will never go away......Women hate DCF.....DCF will never go away....!!
Obamacare will own YOUR SOUL....!!
Lets talk about Democrap Lawyers who own strip clubs.....Where young girls sell their bodies to pay off SCHOOL LOANS........While Democrap LAWYERS push Obamacare on women....!!
Obamacare will OWN YOUR SOUL.....!!
RUSH IS RIGHT.....!!
I wonder if history will look back at the first half Afrikan-American presidents greatest achievement as a dismal failure?
Come on folks - all these Democrat business owners that are going to pay big time for insurance shouldn't complain. They got caught up in that "Hope & Change." Obama told them when he walked into Joe The Plumbers yard "That everyone needed to spread the wealth." He also told us he was going to "Fundamentally Tranform America." Most only heard what they wanted to hear1
The easiest way to tell Rush is lying is if he speaks or writes something. Then he's lying.
@RabidPatriot - Rush often illustrates absurdity by being absurd.
Yes, he is MOCKING OBAMA! Unfortunately, the liberal turds are blinded by obama's greatness, so it goes right over their tiny heads.
@Jakridge says my "sophomoric sarcasm is dully noted..." I think you meant "duly noted." Dully is an adverb that means Intellectually weak or stupid. Don't ya hate it when your snarky comment makes you look intellectually weak or stupid because your command of the English language is relatively poor? I occasionally make mistakes for sure, but at least I know what the words I use mean. Your lack of understanding of the words you get from a thesaurus is duly noted. I suggest you chose your words more carefully in the future, and look them up in a dictionary, unless you want to appear to be a dullard.
Anyway, you've misinterpreted my post. The Republican idea for healthcare, which you seem to have no understanding of, originated with the very conservative Heritage Foundation (now run by Jim DeMint), and was proposed by the devout conservative George H. W. Bush, although it didn't get any traction at the time. That's the Republican health care proposal and one that I support. Republicans like me are all about "repeal and replace" and the Jim DeMint Heritage Foundation proposal is one that I think you'd support too if you had a clue.
Rush Limbaugh is full of shit.
Its time for the Dems to do whats best for the nation and the people , if it a sacrifice so be it !
