Jesus certainly said this - except that Jesus was not speaking about the catholic church. It is plain as day that Jesus was speaking of himself being the son of God. the corruption of this essential truth is so heretic that no wonder the wob will be judged and found wanting.

The gate of hell means death

The fallacy teaching of the Vatican has lead countless layman to believe that that verse means corruption or trouble or dismay and that the catholic see will stand and carry on forever

On the contrary

Death does not prevail on those who are in Christ Yeshua not on those that trust in man posing as the rock

I hope that all those people who believe that this signifies the start of the end of days, start living with Gods pure love in their hearts, without prejudice for ANY of his creations. To receive and give love unconditionally rather than living by the bible, a damaged doctrine that has been tampered with by Popes, Kings and Emperors over a thousand years. THIS IS GODS BIGGEST TEST OF FAITH some who call themselves Christians but take the word of man over the light of God are in for a HELL of a shock.

Pope Benedict XVI is to be admired for this decision. It was absolutely appalling that John Paul II did not resign when he became incapacitated. When he gave his last public address to the crowd in St. Peter's Square, he had to be wheeled to the window, and he drooled incomprehensibly as he attempted to read his message, before his hangers-on had to wheel him back. It reminded me of the ailing Leonid Brezhnev who had to make a final appearance atop Lenin's tomb, in Nov. 1982, a few days before he died.

If there is anything that can be said with certainty, it is that the Roman Administrative Infrastructure will endure.

There is no need to be scared. We need a pope who will have the moral and administrative skills and energy that the papal office requires.

Besides a church is not a building anyways, but a gathering of two or more believers.

Matthew 18:20 (KJV)
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

So a church can be anywhere believers gather.

I would not hold my breath waiting for "the Return of our Lord Jesus." What we need is a pope with the competence to lead the Catholic Church in resolving the various crises that it faces.

M. C. Williams says: To receive and give love unconditionally rather than living by the bible, a damaged doctrine that has been tampered with by Popes, Kings and Emperors over a thousand years.

Do you have a copy old enough to compare with later manuscripts to prove this happened?

Other than a comparison of the Masoretic Texts with the Dead Sea Scrolls, which helps with the OT only, probably not.

If the pope becomes incapacitated, the College of Cardinals assumes responsibility for the administration of the Catholic Church.

Pope Benedict's decision reveals great courage and humility, and demonstrates his priorities. As the visible leader of the Catholic Church, he's more concerned that the Church is led by one healthy and vigorous than frail and ailing. His decision shouldn't be surprising to those who have noticed his physical decline in the past couple years. It's not likely he'd even consider stepping down without great confidence that his successor will be well-qualified and prepared to accept the challenges the position presents.

Be assured that the Church leadership will not be faltering in leadership...or in its teachings. And I hope that doesn't shock or disappoint you too much.

Pope Benedict is stepping aside to allow another more vital, strong, and likely, younger individual. I'm thinking it may prove to be a very good, and humble, thing to do.

Hey Timothy, I saw that you commented on the 400th anniversary of the 1611 translation..if I may ask, what is the size of the print? Is it jumbo?
I'm thinking about getting it , I also have the interlinear bible, but the English print is quite small. Hope to hear from you, thanks

Edit: it does not include the puesdoprigrifical writings of the apocrafer does it?

OT, does cover even what the Messiah wanted to say, for he says in Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Jot or Tittle is Hebrew and thats OLD TESTAMENT for laws. Really if you follow the Bible, the messiah teachings follow the Old Testament quite closely.

Jesus/Yeshua/Messiah is known as the word, Jesus/Yeshua/Messiah is also known as love, so as humans we are to do our best to follow the word as true love stems from that.

In his exit interview, they told him he would have to agree not to sign with another organized religion for three years.

Brian,
be assured they do. They likely already have a strong idea whom the next pope will be.

Raulito says:
AC,

"And Peter was not a papa, he was married and never went to "rule" at Rome"

St. Ignatius (105 a.d) wrote to the Christians in Rome "Not as Peter and Paul do I command you, they were free men, I am but a slave..." Letter to the Romans. Written while in prison in Rome.

The letter makes no sense unless Peter had exercised some form of leadership within the Church of Rome, at least 30 years before.
