Your judgements are only human but with God all things are possible. The believers left violence behind because they became born of the Spirit but the world did not give up violence.

MT 3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits fit for repentance:
MT 3:9 "And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham for our father: [or for that matter the RCC or any denomination as your inheritence] for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham."

And I have no doubt He is able to cause them to live for two thousand years.

Of coarse the truth is God does not consult with any one as to what prayers to answer. Mary knew that.
JN 2:3 "And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus said unto Him, They have no wine
JN 2:4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with you? My hour is not yet come.
JN 2:5 His mother said unto the servants, Whatsoever he says unto you, do it."
If she were alive today she would say the same thing, "Whatever He says to you, do it."
You are greatly mistaken.. Catholic' HONOR our Mother Mary!!!
Worship is for God ALONE!!
God commands.. "Honor your MOTHER and Father!"

Jesus MUST HONOR Mary his mother; God COMMANDS IT! IF..
If Jesus did NOT Honor Mary his mother he would be sinning.. IF..
garya123 If Jesus was to SIN then Jesus would not be Perfect he would NOT BE God!

Catholic's Honor Mary our Mother because we are her Children!!
garya123 All IN The Body of Jesus are Children of Mary.. It is Just this simple!

You are NOT Mary's Child Tis true.. BUT..
But HONOR to the Mother of the KING, is a direct Honor for the KING!!

I don't expect you to honor Mary as MOTHER but to reject her is a slap in the Face of Jesus!

Scriptures PROVE Mary is NOT your mother!
This is PROPHESY!!
Scripture PROPHESY!
Luke 1:46
And Mary said:
“My soul glorifies the Lord
47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
48 for he has been mindful
of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
holy is his name.
50 His mercy extends to those who fear him,
from generation to generation.

garya123 The "From Now On" tells you Mary's Generations started at the "From Now On"!

From now on all generations will call me blessed!!

garya123 Only the Catholic peoples have roots that go back two thousand years to Mary and her Prophesy!
Only the Catholic is in HER GENERATIONS!
Only the Catholic is IN Mary's ancestral family tree!
When Mary spoke "From NOW ON" her family started!!

I am in Mary's family.. Mary is my MOTHER/ Grand Mother but still mother!
Mary is my MOTHER so Jesus is MY BROTHER!
Jesus is MY BROTHER so God is my FATHER!

garya123 Mary can't be your mother you are protestant you are IN PROTEST against the Holy Catholic Church.. You are OUTSIDE if outside you CAN'T be INSIDE at the same time!!
You can't trace your roots back, two thousand years to Mary.. The best you can do is trace your roots back to, is the "re-formers" back 500 years then you can't trace your roots back further!

You are NOT in Mary's GENERATIONS/ Ancestry!
garya123 Jesus cannot be your brother, God cannot be your father.
Because Mary CAN'T be your mother!. It is just this simple!
To say different, you will have to reject the PROPHESY as just another lie from Jesus!

The PROPHESY PROVES "Mary is my mother!"
The PROPHESY PROVES "Mary can't be your mother!"

Now I must assume you mean; Protestants!!!
There was NO Protestants for the first Sixteen Hundred years!

Jesus said this Prophesy!.. In scriptures.. "I am always with you to the very end of the age"!
Knowing as we do... Jesus cannot be meaning any man made protestant churches because; There was NONE when Jesus spoke this prophesy!!

Jesus is ALWAYS WITH His Holy Catholic bride.. He would not leave his LOVE for thousands of man made bodies!
Ephesians 5:25
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her

Only the Catholic Church has roots back to Jesus and his Prophesy!
Catholic's believe the scriptures!

Arrogance is a taking upon oneself, a conviction of self-importance.

"The Church is not a set of man made beliefs, it's the way one lives their life."

The 2001 edition, successor to his 1982 first edition, which took a decade to compile, identifies 10,000 distinct religions, of which 150 have 1 million or more followers. Within Christianity, he counts 33,820 denominations.

"Scriptures ALONE is a LIE it produces "DENOMINATIONS!!!!"
It sends souls to Satan!


I reply... You asked for "Where can 33,000 Protestant denominations can be found!!
I pointed you to "World Christian Encyclopedia" so now because I showed you it instantly becomes.. "Idiotic"!
Yes ... the list is. Many of those are not Christian.
You simply are regurgitating a very mis-informed source... blind leading the blind is not new.

All protestants and protestant churches are made by men.. ALL..
All showed up at least.. Sixteen Hundred years AFTER Jesus formed his one holy Church! All are opposed to Jesus and his One Church!!!
I am going to respond as politely as possible... for your rantings here are getting tiresome.

Making your posts looking like something from a circus doesn't add any creditability or any more noticeable.

Honestly Julian, I don't think even catholics would agree with you that there is no antichrist. Even your priest would not agree with what you said above.

John wtote, "Children, it is the last hour; and just as you have heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have risen; from this we know that it is the last hour." 1 John 2:18

God being omnipotent has nothing to do with it. Neither does the trinity. I think you may be confused about these terms my friend.

It has become obvious to me that you do not read mine or other people's posts. Twice I have quoted scriptures from the New Testament to show you that the true church of the New Testament was called church of God, church of Christ, body of Christ, bride of Christ, church of the firstborn. The church of the New Testament was never called catholic.

I will post the scriptures one more time. Please address them.

16 Salute one another with an holy kiss. All the churches of Christ salute you. (Romans 16:16)

28 Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. (Acts 20:28)

2 To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, (1 Cornithians 1:2)

Sometimes the Catholic church is mistaken and I have no problems pointing that out. However, when you discuss these issues with a priest (off the record) you get a very different view. Even Protestant ministers admit that their academic world in the seminary does not transport very well to the folks in the pews that expect to hear a more traditional view of God which always implies that somehow God is not really omnipotent.
A truly omnipotent God has no adversaries, otherwise God is not omnipotent.

The antichrist has to do with the evil folks among us (mere mortals). This is just another term to define the evil,in MAN. Another term in the long list that includes Satan, Lucifer, demons, etc. It is allegoric prose Katie and must be taken as such.
