\\Pope Alexandar VI 1492.

Wikipedia
The reforms decreed at Lateran V (1512-1517) had only a small effect\\

This is BEFORE the Council of Trent, which is the beginning of the Counter-reformation.

Glory to Jesus Chist!

\\so have you read "Byzantine Theology: Historical Trends & Doctrinal Themes,"?
---john9346 on 5/4/16
\\

I may or may have not. I've read several works by him.

He and his father-in-law, Archpriest Alexander Schmemann were well-respected theologians, but are not necessarily the Universal Solvents.

What is your point?

Now please, answer my original question.

As Jesus said, if Satan is divided against Satan, how long can his kingdom stand?

\\But the leaders who cared more for money and power refused to be corrected.\\

Please name one who did, giving his place and date.

\\The Latin word for "Book" is Libros, not even close to biblio.\\

That's the Spanish plural, from the Latin LIBER.

\\ We depend on the Word of GOD. \\

So did just about every heretic since Arius.

Some, like Marcion or Luther, tried to decide on their own authority what books were truly Canonical. Marcion, for example, accepted only St. Luke's Gospel and St. Paul's letters--none of the OT, or even Acts.

Luther claimed that Esther and James weren't really inspired.

It was indeed the Bishops of the Apostolic Succession that stood together and said they were wrong.

I've read several of FR. Meyendorff's works.

Which ones have you read all the way through?

\\Sir, tell us, do you disagree with Mr. Meyendorff,?
---john9346 on 5/3/16\\

Why don't you answer my question first? And it's FATHER Meyendorff.

Read a good basic book on Orthodox Christology first, such as Abp. Dmitri's DOCTRINE OF CHRIST. This must be believed before other teachings make sense.

The Pope DOES NOT wear a crown.

David, if you're talking about the papal tiara, this was retired over 50 years ago, and the custom ceased.

Why are you and others fixated on this?

Christ is risen!


Holy Spirit Left Me
  
Notice that kathr never actually answered my question.

Trav never does, either.

Another thing they judge me for is not quoting Scripture.

So here is one for them:

Titus 3:10
A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject,

Let them say what they will. I will no longer respond.

Henceforth, both are dead to me.

Christ is risen!

\\Do you believe that a false apostle who serves Satan is a valid teacher?
---Samuelbb7 on 5/2/16\\

I would say it depends on what he is teaching--or she.

john9346, are you reading Fr. John Meyendorff and other Orthodox writers to find out what they say, or to merely cherrypick quotes taken out of context?

Christ is risen!

In other words, Trav, you know nothing about what you were saying when i asked my questions.

As far as the use of Latin, everyone was speaking English 2000 years ago, right?

Christ is risen!

kathr, your frequent misspellings (such as "sacriment" for "sacrAment"), claims that things are in the Bible that are in fact not there at all, and getting historical facts wrong all work together to give a strong impression that you simply do not know what you're talking about.

Now I'll ask YOU a question: Where in the Bible is "accept Christ into your heart as personal Savior?" Or even the word "Bible", for that matter.

When you answer either of these, I'll answer your objections.

Until you do, you're dead to me.

Explain Bible History
  
\\Sir really??, the NT was given to us by Jews. Did you not know this?
---john9346 on 5/2/16\\

Luke was a Gentile.

Christ is risen!

Trav, you seem to know more about Catholic things than I (who am Orthdox) know.

How much does it cost in American currency to escape Purgatory?

How much does it cost to go to confession? I assume that's what you mean by "an audience with the priest." If I'm mistaken, please explain what you do mean and the price.

How much does it cost to receive Communion and for the other Sacraments and ministrations?

Of course, I remember from my old days as a Baptist before I got saved, pastors NEVER asked for money, and visiting evangelists were NEVER offered honoraria. Is that still the rule among Protestants?

Christ is risen!


Is Saving Faith A Work
  
Samuel, ANYTHING involving the word "do" is by definition a work.

josef, as someone else pointed out, the Father doesn't believe. He KNOWS.

\\when the USA set the line for forever. As the Berlin Wall.
---Nicole_lacey on 5/2/16\\

Bad analogy, Nicole.

The Berlin wall fell. The border between the USA and Mexico was set by international agreement.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

jerry, the first Africans were captured and sold into slavery by mahometan Africans.

Christ is risen!

\\Now please show me the book, a book in the bible, where God established the Catholic priesthood with all its rituals.\\

I've already dealt with this issue, David.

Please see my previous posts.

BTW, I'm Orthodox, in case you've forgotten.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
