Try not posting after hitting the crack pipe. Maybe each of you will find a real church. It proves only one thing that I heard many years ago. The devil will follow you right into church and sit right beside you and try to convince you to leave. Only here the Devil and his disciples got their asses booted out in the name of The Lord. Haha keep up the good work Joel
How does he get his hair to look like that?
Q: "How does he get his hair to look like that?"
A: Caviar oil, imported of course.
BTW, I don't trust ANYONE who smiles all the time, the guy just creeps me out.
Did anybody read they were from a cult and had done this to another church not just him so seems to me they were trying to start things at different churches just almost like what happened in the church in the news. Just because some doesn't believe what others believe doesn't give any of you all the right to bash someone and call them a liar. So you don't believe in God but this doesn't make Joel a liar just goes to show maybe you all might be. Would you like it if everyone said bad things about you cause of you beliefs. No you would probably be ready to fight its his belief so stop bashing he has a right to what he believes.

It only makes sense:
Anti-christ school system
what else could we expect?

If gay marriage is ok, why not polygamy? Why not incestual marriage? Why doesn’t everyone just marry everyone else? Then we could all share in our partner’s estates. We could all marry one another and be 1 big happy family!
Gay marriage is absurd in it’s premise. You are legally able to leave your estate to anyone you desire, even a total stranger or a pet. No one is forbidden to visit anyone in a hospital etc. These arguments for gay marriage are a farce.

If you cannot see how gay marriage injures you and society as a whole, then there is no help for you.

Perfection is performed by the blood of Christ, not by Catholic ritual. The Bible does not mention purgatory because it does not exist. Who decides who goes to Purgatory? And who decides when and how one will get out of Purgatory? Is it decided by some fruitcake wearing a cone on his head?
The word is clear, there is no Purgatory. Purgatory like the indulgences is just another way for the Catholic “church” to get rich off of the spiritually ignorant.
 November 5, 2014 at 4:13pm
Taking Catholic teaching seriously isn’t possible to anyone who knows even the basics of the Word of God.
Just like the Catholic indulgences many Catholic families have paid all their inheritance to pay a loved one out of purgatory. I personally know of a family whose son was declared “in purgatory” by some wacko priest. The family sold their business and paid it to the “church” to pay their son out of purgatory, one joint at a time. This doctrine like most Catholic doctrines comes from hell and requires $$$ to be saved.

Understanding Catholic is ignorant in itself. Studying to “understand” false unscriptural doctrine is the depth of ignorance.

[On August 24, 1572, Roman Catholics in France, by pre-arranged plan, under Jesuit influence, murdered 70,000 Protestants within the space of two months. The pope rejoiced when he heard the news of the successful outcome. (Read Great Controversy, chapter 15 for the details.) [If you don't have a copy, write and we'll send you one.] “Catholics say only 30,000 were slain. Protestants put the number at 70,000. We prefer the latter figure. If there were 70,000 Huguenots [French Protestants] in Paris the night of the massacre, so much the more justification for the slaughter . . . We have heard ring out many times the very bells that called the Catholics together on that fatal night. They always sounded sweetly in our ears”–Western Watchman, Nov. 21, 1912 [Roman Catholic].

Actually, all they have to delve into history and they will know better than to waste their time on the catechism.

No, that was his left over Catholic teaching. The Catholics supported, welcomed, and blessed Hitler.
You do not live up to your screen name. May God have mercy on your soul for spreading lies about His Church.

So, all you have proven is that Luther also retained some Catholic error in his belief system. Whatever Luther or anyone else believes Mary is NOT co-redeemer with Christ. Praying to Mary is not scriptural, therefore it is wrong. The word of God is true and every opinion that opposes scripture is simply incorrect. Mary is not co-redeemer, she couldn’t even save herself.
November 3, 2014 at 3:18pm
Praying to anyone but Christ most certainly is idolatry. Mary’s “healing presence” is not indicated in scripture, therefore believing in it is unscriptural. Mary is NOT co-redeemer with Christ as many Catholics believe… this is blasphemy.

Which He did not instruct. Jesus was clear that the elements were symbolic representatives and not His actual flesh and blood. Jesus is received through faith, this reception is symbolized through communion.. Nothing can be added to the death of Christ upon the cross.
 November 3, 2014 at 3:09pm
The “Blessed Mother” was never abandoned by protestants, only put into her proper role. Mary is still celebrated at Christmas and called blessed in Protestant Churches. The Catholic church attempting to make Mary “co-redeemer” with Christ is unscriptural and blasphemous.
Those who were “massacred by the thousands” actually fell at the sword of the Catholics, this is recorded history.
Did you just say Protestants “put” Mary into “her proper role”???
How do Protestants “celebrate” Mary at Christmas? Why do Protestant churches call Mary “blessed”?
 November 3, 2014 at 3:05pm
This is not true. At least he didn’t believe that we could purchase salvation like his teachers believed.
 November 3, 2014 at 3:04pm
IF Luther was an anti-semite it was no doubt from his residual teaching of the Catholic “church.” The Catholic leadership openly blessed and supported Hitler in his evil.
At least Luther saw the truth of the false cult of Catholicism and stopped kissing the Pope’s ring and praying to the “virgin” Mary who was no longer a virgin.

It is amazing that someone would deny the “church” selling indulgences, when this is historical fact.
The inquisition is also historical fact. The Catholic church backing, supporting and blessing Hitler is also historical fact.
The “church” claiming that any man is the equivalent of God on earth is blasphemous. Only Christ is the redeemer of mankind, and Mary (or no other person) is co-redeemer.
Christ said plainly that He was the way, and the only way. Mary couldn’t even save herself, let alone anyone else.
Praying to statues and dead people is a form of idol worship. Scripture tells us that we have one advocate, the Lord Jesus Himself.
Any teaching that deifies man or humanizes God is a false cult. Catholicism is only one of many false cults on the earth.
"It is amazing that someone would deny the “church” selling indulgences, when this is historical fact."
Yes, bad bishops did bad things and one of them was to sell indulgences. Does the Catholic Church do this today? No. Do most people know what an indulgence is? Probably not. So why do people stay away from the Catholic Church? Could it be that there are religions out there that are more anti-Catholic than they are pro-God?
"The inquisition is also historical fact."
There were multiple inquisitions and some of them were fact/historical. The most popularly discussed inquisition was held by the Spanish royalty after the Muslims were purged and the kingdom was brought back under control of the Spanish Queen. Muslims had gone underground and were fomenting sedition; to root them out the royalty used the church to inquire of people who claimed to be Christians (with the government) and those who were spies among the people. The church went along with the inquisition because they believed there were heretics among the population passing off their own brand of Christianity as the true faith. That there were excessive means used to discover who was or wasn't a heretic is not disputed; just that these excessive means were commonplace is disputed. They were not prevalent but people who get their information from movies, blogs, and myth might believe they were.
"The Catholic church backing, supporting and blessing Hitler is also historical fact."
Prove it; cite your sources. My understanding is that this myth was started by a play script; a fictitious piece of art but was never rooted in fact. After the war, many Jews came forward to praise and thank their Catholic saviors who, at great risk to themselves, saved more Jews than any underground secular movement ever did.
"The “church” claiming that any man is the equivalent of God on earth is blasphemous."
Whom are you referring to? If you mean the Pope, the Catholic Church has never claimed he is equivalent to God. That's usually the claim who don't know any better or just like to spread rumors. The Pope is Christ's Vicar on earth; he runs the Catholic church but he is NOT God.
"Only Christ is the redeemer of mankind, and Mary (or no other person) is co-redeemer.
Christ said plainly that He was the way, and the only way. Mary couldn’t even save herself, let alone anyone else."
Jesus is God Incarnate, the Christ, and Our Savior. Mary is His holy mother. We pray for Mary's INTERCESSION not for salvation by her; Mary has a special bond to Jesus in a way never before, since, or will be shared by another human being.
"Praying to statues and dead people is a form of idol worship. Scripture tells us that we have one advocate, the Lord Jesus Himself."
You're right; praying TO statues and dead people is a form of idol worship. Catholics use statues to remind us of saints that have gone before us; these saints are regular people who led extraordinary lives in God. During their lives, God used them to work His Miracles and after they died, God worked more miracles through their intercession. Think of praying for the intercession of saints as a gigantic prayer circle. When you invite your friends to pray for a special intention, you do the same as Catholics do when they ask the saints to pray for their special intentions.
Yes, Jesus is Our Savior and Catholics pray to Him every day; every day we celebrate our communion with Christ by receiving the Holy Communion - Christ Himself. Then, at the end of Mass, we are told to go out and spread/preach the Word carrying Christ within us as we go.
"Any teaching that deifies man or humanizes God is a false cult. Catholicism is only one of many false cults on the earth."
Catholics do not deify any man; not the Pope - no one. Catholics do not humanize God; we believe in Jesus as God Incarnate meaning two natures in one person (God and man.) I pray you learn more about the Catholic Church before you continue to spread your false belief that we are a cult. We are the true church of Christ, established over 2,000 years ago, and with an unbroken line of succession from Christ Himself.
Truthranger, not one thing you listed is true! LOL. The “Church” did not ever sell indulgences…some wayward priest or bishop may have but if you think your preacher(s) is without fault, then please submit his name so we an all worship him!
You have a twisted version of events that took place at the Inquisition…but not surprised by your revisionist history!
The Church never supported Hitler and did more to save Jews than any country or organization in history at that time.
The Church does not claim any man to be equivalent to God, that IS blasphemous and also is a lie!
Mary is co-redemptrix only so far as she fully cooperated with God by her free will in the plan of salvationl…do NOT make the mistake of saying this means she saves us, that is also blasphemous and a lie.
Mary was the very first to recognize her Son as Savior in the Magnifcat. And do not be silly enough to think she saves herself…or anyone else.
No one prays to a statue!! LOL…Is merely a physical reminder to aid our hearts through our sense of sight!!!!!!!!! We have prayers FOR the dead, we can also ask the dead to pray for us…because they are fully alive with Christ and so they can and do pray for us.
Poor non-truthranger….you have so many misconceptions pounded into your little head, I have no think maybe you are a hopeless case, but then again, through Jesus, anything can happen. I have witnessed many hardened hearts turn when they truly were interested in seeking TRUTH at all costs.
