A customer says:
The one class of religions are those which men have invented, in all of which man saves himself by ceremonies and good works; the other is that one religion which is revealed in the Bible, and which teaches man to look for salvation solely from the free grace of God

You forgot the part about how the one class of religion which men have invented is also the one that collected and decided which books would go in the bible.

Kind of an awkward situation for you there.

I'd rather appreciate the author of a book than the publisher, but then that's just me.

Don't-cha just love it when these pinheads come out with "Catholics and Christians?" Just astounding here in the 21st century! Of course, they forget that fundamentalist bible-thumpery is barely 150 years old.

Subset versus set.

M, are you suggesting that Catholicism is not a sect of Christianity?

While Fundies are trashing Catholics here (interestingly it's never the other way around), they seem to forget that the reason they don't see a Gospel of Peter, Gospel of Thomas, Gospel of Nicodemus, and at least a dozen of "Gospels" when they open up their bible, is because the Bishops of the Catholic Church voted on which gospels were truly divinely inspired back at the Catholic Church's synods of Carthage and Rome.

Again, it's an awkward fact that they don't like to look straight in the eye while they're in the middle of a bigoted fundie rant against Catholics.

Irony. It's sad

Is this a cage match? Because for me, that would make a big difference on who would win.

I'd pop for that Pay Per View!

I guess you think Christianity is the first type of religion, in light of James 2:24.

"Sola fide" is no more scriptural than "sola scriptura." It's GRACE PLUS FAITH PLUS WORKS (Eph 2:9-11).

"Insinuating" would be a better word...

ROFL, Really??? Kevin Bold has never trashed or spread his hatred against Proetestants? Short memory I guess...

But as I said, I'd rather celebrate the author as it is God's word. Last I checked, it wasn't Catholics that wrote the wisdom found in the book.

So again, why is it that you don't find the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Peter, the Gospel of Nicodemus, and a dozen other "gospels" in your bible? If the Catholic Bishops at Catholic Church's synods of Carthage and Rome had voted to include them, and maybe not Mark and Matthew, that's what you would be finding in your bible today.

The person to whom you're responding must not know that the early Church was Catholic.

Macheath, nothing awkward for me. Those books were rejected by christianity a looooong time ago and wre rejected as nothing truth at all about them and that the catholic Bible is the only that has them in it.

A customer says:
Macheath, there is no proof of anything that the Catholics were ever a part of anything and it is not able to prove it existed because Jesus NEVER gave the Catholic Church anything to show they were in charge of anything. The Catholic Church likes to pretend to be in charge but it is not truth.

A customer says:
The Catholic Church has a person working, working, working, the rest of their lives and then even after death hoping that someone will pray them out of purgatory and the only thing about that is, purgatory is hell and there is no escape from that. That one place keeps many people in the Catholic church partying and marrying and divorcing all the days of their lives only to wake up in hell
