  1. this is the biggest idolatry in Christianity and it gets me mad everytime I hear someone worshiping her
    as soon as I say something about that they all get angry at me. but you talk about Jesus in a bad way and no one says anything. you talk about Christians in a bad way and they all insult you, shows how much they don't know God/Jesus

    I wonder really what Mary would say if she were alive in this generation.
     
  2. the reason for removing books mainly has to do with contradiction in scripture.

    there's an old testament book in the catholic bible where it says that praying for the dead will make God forgive the sins of the dead.
    while Isaiah says: Isaiah 8:19-20
    19 And when they say to you, “Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter,” should not a people seek their God? Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living? 20 To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

    or from another translation:
    19 When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living? 20 To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn.
     
  3. Idolatry will NEVER be permitted with God.
    if you go soft on them Smelly it's up to you.
    as for God and His saints, they will never go soft on idolatry, in any form, human or statue.
     
  4. ramsey have you ever thought that they are there for a reason,so you can work out what spirit is talking in the bible.?and which spirit is talking through people.if you lose the knowledge even of a false spirit,how can you compare.?there are lots of contradictions in the bible as it is,maybe we need these books to understand.i,m catholic and will say what catholics do is wrong,but many are asleep,prodestants dismiss God by what they have done,and yet they say,they see.
     
  5. there are contradictions in the Bible ?
    never knew that

    can you post some of your contradictions please? we'll do our best to help you with them =)

    this is why I am neither catholic nor protestant nor anything. I do not want names.. I am like the Apostles :)
    I was a catholic for 19 years
    then an evangelical lebanese girl started preaching to me :D it was great :) I was very receptive LOL since I wasn't really a Christian nor was I doing anything that catholics did :p I was pretty ignorant xD
    then I started to read the Bible and started wondering..
    then one day I was in the shower (lol) and I said to myself.. hey wait I don't need to have a name! I can simply be a Christian :)!!
    yay
     
  6. maybe them 66 books is a sign for you.666.the bible has 73.7 stands for God and the 3 is for christ.stop being so judgemental,most catholics have never read a catholic bible.and there is a passage in daniel about keeping these books locked until the end.
     
  7. i,m christian but with 73 books.
     
  8. I'd like you to read all 5 books of Moses and then read every reference for idolatry in the old testament then tell me in your own words what did the LORD of Hosts do to His own people when they started with idolatry :)

    Have a good night mikey
     
  9. i don,t do the catholic things,but i won,t cut the bible by 7 books neither.
     
  10. i don,t watch or get swayed by others,i keep my eyes open.what they do is there business,some are used to take all from truth.
     
  11. The Holy Spirit leads us into all truth, never will contradict God's Word, and will never lead us into idolatry. I don't belong to a denomination, myself, (well I go to an Evangelical Free Church) but I know there are many good ones out there that are true to Jesus Christ, the Author and Perfector of our faith, our only way to God, the object of our worship, the Son of God, who is One with the Father.
     

  12. Can you please show these? How can God contradict himself?
     
  13. why would God contradict himself.?he wouldn,t.but people my contradict God.all before me were liars and theives.God can,t be contradicted there,or does this not suit your needs.?
     
  14. You said the Bible has contradictions. The Bible is God's word, right? Therefore that would be saying God contradicted himself.

    I'd be good with just showing where the Bible contradicts itself.
     
  15. Thank you my friends for maintaining an intellectual and mature conversation. :)

    "Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another. He who tends the fig tree will eat its fruit, And he who cares for his master will be honored." Proverbs 27:17-18
     
  16. if Jesus says don,t kill,God says don,t kill.both are the same,then why in the old testament do people kill at God,s will.?that is a contradiction in itself.so like Jesus said all before me are liars and thieves.
     
  17. There is a difference between murder, and justice. The innocent, and the guilty. Taking a life illegally, and taking one lawfully. Think of the differences we have in today's society. Accidental death, manslaughter, murder, self-defence, death penalty, etc.. God is Sovereign and we are to obey God, just as His people Israel were to obey Him, many times they were commanded to carry out God's justice on those who acted wickedly. And in the new covenant we are to preach the gospel to those who are ignorant of their act of idolatry, that they may turn instead to Jesus and live.
     
  18. did God tell moses to kill that soldier?did God tell samson to kill all them people.God is the judge and he is more than capable to do what is right.but to tell people to kill,is against his command,so we know that cannot be true.
     
  19. sorry but i disagree.people kill and use God as a alibi.
