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

Deborah you dont know what you are talking about. The initial decision on the books of the Bible did not include the apocrypha at Carthage in 397. So to claim that Protestants are wrong because they dont have all the books is ignorant.
Those books by most groups including Roman catholics are not considered God inspired words. So if you want to say you take information from those books to make decision about your eternity you can see why people balk at that.
BTW you do know that the ROMAN catholic church did not put the first Bible together, it was all 5 churches of that time before the schism. That is why the oldest Bibles are in Greek not Latin.
Look and see what teachings took place after the schism. Purgatory, buying indulgences, Papal supremacy and on and on it goes with teachings that allow the church power and control.
RC’s love to point out that protestant broke off from their church but forget that they are not the original church either and broke off from the Catholics, 5 churches, when they wanted to change the rules to assume power.
Dont even get me started on Peter and the first pope LOL

SO silly Roman catholics always want to scream they put the Bible together so they must be right. Well first off, you didnt. The Bible was put together while the church was one body long before the schism and creation of the ROMAN Catholic church. Second it doesnt matter, because if it takes a Bible to get saved then how did people in Corinth, Antioch and all the other places letters were written by the apostles, get saved without the book?
With a personal relationship with Christ which is what those letters taught. So go study church history, see when the Bible was put together and see when Roman Catholics started. Hint the oldest Bibles are in Greek not Latin.

Kidder – Except the ROMAN catholic church is no different than the protestants as it split away from 80% of the Catholic church at the great schism. 5 Churches made up the catholic church, Antioch, Israel, Egypt, Constantinople and Rome. 4 out of 5 became the orthodox church Ortho – meaning right or straight and dox meaning belief or way. THEY called Romes church the Roman Catholic church and it was an insult, as they would not let them be associated with the Orthodox church. They both excommunicated each other and there you have it.
SO the Roman Catholic church is a split off from the catholic church like all other churches and it went against the teachings of 80% of the known church at the time.
Now go look and see why there was a schism. You will see the church at Rome started to implement ideals that gave them power, and they have not stopped since that time.

How does one understand being a minority and develop tough skin by keeping his homosexuality secret for years?? Its not like you were born black and cant hide it, oh wait never mind you guys actually think that black and gay are the same thing.

Patty – And Joel Osteen did the opening prayer for her swear in and also wouldn’t comment on her when he was on the view. Some preacher!! I wonder what he has said about her since this blow up. You would think a person of his status would get some recognition when we spoke out against her, but I cant find anything on the web. I guess thats typical of Joel, never makes a stand.

Jim S – One more thing, stop using the divorce as an argument for them being hypocrites. The Bible is clear on who can get a divorce and still not violate Gods law. Just because someone is divorced, does not mean they have committed the sin of adultery. So unless you know someone that they married and know for a fact that their divorce was adulterous, you cant make that assertion. Thanks

Jim S – Sorry but you are incorrect. This man is an ordained and that means he is acting in a religious and church manner when preforming a wedding. If he was not ordained and just a JP I would agree with you. But by forcing him to preform a wedding against his will is the same exact thing as forcing a priest or pastor to marry homosexuals against their beliefs.
Who cares where the location is, that is irrelevant. He could be doing this at a lake in a state park and that does not mean he would have to consent to preforming homosexual weddings. He is an ordained minister and that never changes, period.
You cannot separate the business from the owner in a wedding ceremony as the person preforming the ceremony is the center of the ceremony, not the facility. My point is in the case of weddings, the man (pastor) is the business.
Now if they rented out their place and let anyone use it for weddings and let other people able to preform weddings in and tried to block the homosexuals from using it, I would agree. But in this case he preforms all the weddings and therefore he is the business.
JQ – what a stupid statement, your a better Christian and your a Jew LOL
So you follow the teachings of Christ and believe he is God? and your a Jew? Please explain.

That cop is about to give this guy the best one time tip he has ever received from any tax payer. Sweet, get the ignorant cop to read the law out loud and then break the law himself, best evidence for a law suit I have seen in a long time. Enjoy the free tax payer money music man!!

But the Catholic church did split and become the Roman catholic church, so no its not the same church from the beginning. Funny how roman Catholics always forget that.
Guess what, when it split it took on a whole list of new teachings that were not practiced before, doing exactly what you like to blame protestants for.
