Or IS it?

USCCB - (NAB) - January 18, 2009

Reading 1
1 Sm 3:3b-10, 19

Samuel was sleeping in the temple of the LORD
where the ark of God was.
The LORD called to Samuel, who answered, “Here I am.”
Samuel ran to Eli and said, “Here I am. You called me.”..............

Reading II
1 Cor 6:13c-15a, 17-20
Brothers and sisters:
The body is not for immorality, but for the Lord,
and the Lord is for the body;
God raised the Lord and will also raise us by his power...............

Gospel
Jn 1:35-42

John was standing with two of his disciples,
and as he watched Jesus walk by, he said,
“Behold, the Lamb of God.”
The two disciples heard what he said and followed Jesus..............


This is the message proclaimed from the pulpits at ALL the RC churches in America this weekend. Who writes this stuff anyway? Could it be the Word of God?

I don't understand your problem with any of these verses. Can you explain what it is that bothers you about them?

I'm confused. What is the issue here?

It helps to elaborate more.

The point is..........so many people claim that the RC Church is not Biblical and Catholics don't believe in the Bible. No one believes us when we say that the Church is very Biblical. Got your attention, didn't I?

They are only part of the "liturgy"
The "sermon" is referred to as the "Homily"

I for one do not believe the RC church is "unbiblical" nor do I meet people who state that. What may be the difference is... Evangelicals take issue with the papacy being coequal to the Bible. In a thread I wrote some time ago... I outlined the "basic" differences between Evangelicals and the RC church, and most people would find we are very close to doctrinal uniformity.

Here is a short list of doctrinal differing issues... outlined after the JDDJ (Joint Declaration of the Document of Justification)
1. Evangelicals hold to sola fide (justification by faith only in Christ alone) while official Roman Catholic doctrine teaches that justification also involves human effort and merit.
2. Evangelicals teach that the new birth is not dependent on water baptism while Roman Catholic doctrine teaches that water baptism is a “sacrament of regeneration.”
3. Evangelicals affirm sola scriptura (the Word of God alone is our final authority for doctrine and Christian life) while Roman Catholic doctrine teaches that church tradition and the authority of the pope sustains equal validity with the Bible.
4. Evangelicals hold that all believers are priests with immediate access to God through Jesus Christ while Roman Catholic doctrine teaches that the clergy, saints, and the Virgin Mary are also mediators whom individuals need to approach God.


Certainly these are significant differences.... but of the issues ... NONE will keep you from salvation, from an Evangelicals perspective. This is the link to my previous post. If you have any questions or wish to to have a civil discourse... I'm all fingers!
