Acts 10:43-45 – To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.
And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Notice that NO HANDS were laid on these gentiles that received the Holy Spirit. Did they lay hands and people receive the Holy Spirit yes sometimes they did, did they have to? Apparently not.
Also notice how one receives the forgiveness of sin!!! “Whosoever believe on him
“, that came from Peters mouth your first Pope, and yet the RCC still teaches one must confess to a priest.
I think Ill go with the example of people believing having sins forgiven and getting the Holy Spirit in one shabang, none of this having to have hands laid on you and confessing to a priest, all tools the RCC has used to control men throughout history.
If you dont think so, ask yourself why they murdered thousands to keep the Bible OUT of the hands of the rest of the world.

Freunlaven – Do you believe that the Roman Catholic Church was the first and original church?

The laying on of hands in Hebrews chapter 6 is speaking of the old practice on the great day of atonement in Jewish tradition. The priest and the sinner laid hands on the sacrifice as it was going to take away the sin of the sinner or make atonement for their sin.
It had nothing to do with the transference of the Holy spirit into an apostle or the establishment of apostolic succession. That is why it states “let us go on unto perfection” and then in 6:3 states and “this will we do if God permit”
He is talking about leaving the old Jewish traditions.

She is the principal and I guarantee she gets the most problems / complaints from the blacks and that is why she said what she said. Her frustration slipped out.
I'm a retired teacher and I can fully understand how she felt.

wow I had no idea, what country in Africa is run by whites and using force to take their resources?

You are correct Christians did not, but the Jews did and that was over 6k years ago, and guess what? It was still between women and men.

Wrong, SCOTUS has already ruled an officer is not there to protect you from crime and does not have to do so. He does not HAVE to engage by law. If you are that scared as a cop its time for you to find another job.

I hope the cars he hit head on are ok, poor people. They are the true victims!!

You cannot spread disease unless you have it. Unvaccinated does not equal diseased. People vaccinated can carry the disease and not have symptoms, some more science for you. So who do we lock up first? Clean people or vaccinated carriers?
 April 13, 2015 at 2:53pm
So you are all for quarantining the recently vaccinated? Since they CAN spread disease for up to a week after getting the vaccine. That came from my doctor and many others btw

Stop comparing gays to blacks. Show me a black man that chose to be born that color and then we can talk. As long as there are gays who chose to be that way you have no rights as a “race” because you are not one.
Btw if your born gay, wouldn’t bisexual people gross you out like it does straight people, as it is totally foreign to gays? But noooo they team up with other deviants because they know it’s all a choice.

Jim S – That is EXACTLY what states rights were all about, people living under laws THEY choose to live under. So yes, welcome to America.

Its always easy to pick out roman catholics by what they preach, the same exact lie I was told for 9 yrs of RC school. They dont even know real church history. They actually believe the Roman Catholic church is the same thing as the Catholic church. Sheeeeshh
My favorite thing is when they claim some superior position over a break off protestant denomination, when they were the FIRST break off from the catholic church. LOL
Hey when you break off from 80% of the known church, you are the one splitting away RC’s sorry but you were the first and biggest break off that ever occurred in church history it all revolved around power. Look it up.

The first canonization of the Bible did NOT include the extra books, it included exactly what is in a King James protestant Bible. The catholic church was made up of 5 churches at that time. Then the ROMAN catholic church split off from the other 4 churches and decided to go it alone and has done nothing but implement controlling rules since its inception.
That is where papal supremacy comes from and indulgences and a few other things they used to control their people.
BTW they did tell people not to read the Bible and it was done for sometime. My own mother would not read her Bible because her church taught for years that lay people are not to read the Bible.

Your a perfect example of why the people are turning on cops. Instead of dealing with this cops bad behavior you inadvertently defend him.

She will be the first person to scream that we should not judge all blacks based on the actions of a few in Furgeson, and continue to judge all whites based on the actions of a few cops. The purest example of racism I have seen in a long time.

Militant – All the bishops of the 5 churches at that time had to confirm what was going to be considered scriptural. So having the bishop in Rome confirm it was nothing exceptional. It wasn’t until the great schism that Rome tried to assume power. Roman bishop had an honorary position and nothing more, that is why 80% 4 out of 5 churches separated from Rome at the great schism. If those odds were reversed RC’s would point out how most of the church of that time agreed with them, but since they were clearly in the minority, they don’t like to mention that fact.
The primary causes of the Schism were disputes over papal authority — the Roman Pope claimed he held authority over the four Eastern patriarchs, while the four eastern patriarchs claimed that the primacy of the Patriarch of Rome was only honorary, and thus he had authority only over Western Christians — and over the insertion of the filioque clause into the Nicene Creed.
If you cannot see the error and flaws in the RC church I am sorry. But I spent 9 years in Catholic school and my entire family is RC. I am well versed in what they believe.

Damo – you seem to miss the difference between Catholic and Roman catholic. Once you understand that we can continue this conversation.
Sola Scriptura does not deny that other authorities govern Christian life and devotion, but sees them all as subordinate to and corrected by the written word of God.
What I said in no way contradicts sola scriptura. Maybe you should study a bit more before you make comments
