    Bingo....UNAUTHORIZED? And who determines the authority, the CATHOLIC CHURCH? Had your prideful soul pegged to perfection. The Pope could not have been any clearer or more unambiguous. "....not everyone, can understand (nope it takes the SPECIAL PEOPLE) but only those who are qualified to understand them with informed intelligence (the scriptures were not meant to be understood by the lay person, like Peter a fisherman? Really?) The depth of the divine scriptures is such that not only the illiterate and UNINITIATED have trouble understanding them (and this from a source that was propagating a FLAT EARTH).....

    But what do the scriptures declare? "This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior (not the POPE, but God saves); WHO WOULD HAVE ALL MEN TO BE SAVED, AND COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH." -- 1 Tim. 2:3,4.

    And are we the Layperson not to be sanctified in that truth? Where does that truth come from? "Sanctify them (sanctify whom? The People) by your truth. Your word is truth." -- John 17:17. A most difficult thing to be sanctified in the WORD when it is prohibited from your possession...no?

    So by your intellectually dishonesty you are claiming that only the Catholic Hierarchy had access to the Latin language and were capable of translating the many existing copies of original manuscripts written in GREEK? Really? Of course you must also ignore the scriptural truth, "You (every Christian) too (also) living stones (just like Christ) built as an edifice of spirit, INTO A HOLY PRIESTHOOD, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Christ (the High Priest of the order...not the POPE)." -- Heb. 4:14-16.

    Or, "You, however, are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people he claims for his own to proclaim the glorious works of the ONE who called YOU from darkness into light." -- 1 Peter 2:9. And Rev. continues along the same line confirming that all CHRISTIANS are priests that need no Hierarchy to go before the throne of God through our Advocate, Christ Jesus, ".....Who has made US a royal nation of priests in the service of his God and Father." -- Rev. 1:6

    You know, dealing with Fundies like yourself is useless. Unlike you, Catholics are generally more open-minded about the nature of God and Salvation. I feel sorry for those who are so closed that they can't accept others. You have never proven your original point. However, it is the responsibility of the Church to ensure that all translations of the Scriptures are as accurate as possible. It is very difficult to ensure an accurate translation, even from one modern language to another (I am in that business), but to translate from the ancient texts? The Church has the responsiblity to ensure that beleivers are getting accurate translations...

    You again forget that Jesus Himself told Peter that he would be the Rock of the Church, and that Chuch is the Catholic Church. Now, we regard Protestants, even radical, closed-minded Fundies like yourself, as fellow Christians who are to be saved so long as they are seeking Christ/God with good will. Sadly, most Fundies have too restricted a view of God's love to extend similar consideration to others...

    The Story of the Malakand Field Force - An Episode of the Frontier War - Winston S. Churchill - Google Books

    Wnston Churchill
    The Malakand Field Force, 1897

    "Indeed it is evident that Christianity, however degraded and distorted by cruelty and intolerance, must always exert a modifying influence on men's passions, and protect them from the more violent forms of fanatical fever, as we are protected from smallpox by vaccination. But the Mahommedan religion increases, instead of lessening, the fury of intolerance.
    It was originally propagated by the sword, and ever since, its votaries have been subject, above the people of all other creeds, to this form of madness." [......]

    Churchill and his opinion about Islam/that Passage had come up in the Europe section TODAY and I remembered how RELEVANT it would be to this string.

    24107, quoter of David Duke et al, complaining about bigotry!
    It's hard to have ANY discussion where you don't Gratuitously dump jooos/bigoted joootubes in.
    Pushiness of Islam v Christianity IS the TOPIC here.
    Please see if you can be as tactful/Topical.

    Re: Which Religion is more "pushy?" Christianity or Islam?

    Today, clearly it's Islam, but Christianity has had the "advantage" of being effectively neutered by decades of largely secular society. In time, Islam will have the same thing happen and then it will be all bark and no bite like Christianity.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I love how you ALWAYS edit your posts minutes after I have already quoted you to add in some extra shots.
