How To Spell Christmas
  
TO sandr5737 on 11/23/07

What ignorance! Christmas is the winter solstice celebrated by the pagans and the Roman Catholic churh which incorporated it into the Western calendar to win pagans to their faith!

Yeshua (Christian: Jesus) was born on Tishri 15. We know this as a fact because the Bible tells us the feast being celebrated when the high priest Zechariah was in the Temple. His wife was Elizabeth, cousin to Miriam (who would be mother of Yeshua haMachiach, Jesus the Annointed one, Christ (in Greek). Read your bible, use a Jewish calendar, and it will give you the whole picture.


Holiday Party Drink
  
What is wrong with this picture?

The Greek dichotomy between body and spirit where Christians are taught that pleasure in the body is contempt in the spirit.

G-d gave us wine and drink. Would He give us a bad thing? There is NO sin in a drink. Drunkenness as some have pointed out is the sin. Those who teach otherwise are of a deceiving spirit, of the anti-christ.

As a Messianic Jew I know, as I was taught and by culture, that there is no sin here. Why you Christians have to make a big deal about something that is meant for joy, to warm the spirit (NOT to get drunk) is a mystery to me.


How To Get The Holy Spirit
  
To say that recieving the Holy Spirit at conversion is "Baptism of the Holy Spirit" is incorrect people!!.The Baptism in the Holy is and operation of the Spirit distinct and separate from His work of regeneartion.. Just as the Spirit's sanctifing work complements His regenerating work, so the baptism in the Spirit complments the regenerating and sanctifying work of the Spirit.

The moment of conversion a person recieve the Holy Spirit. Not the baptism of the Holy Spirit.


Name It And Claim It
  
No its not! This is a man made teaching! We don't name it and claim it! God will give us what we ask if it is part of His will. This is a lie from the The Word Faith Movement. They is absolutely no Scriptures that teaches "Name it and claim it". All these Word Faith Movement advocates teach is Money and wealth.

The Apostle Paul said, "For the love of money is the root of all evil." Timothy, 6:10.


Explain Parable Of The Pearl
  
Ryan.Let me explain it further.The Parables of the hidden treasure and the peral teach two truths: 1). The kingdom is a priceless treasure that is to be desired above all else. 2) The kingdom is to be acquired by giving up everything that would prevent our being part of it.

Selling all means that we must transfer our whole heart from other interests to the one supreme interest, Christ (Rom 12:1).


Is The Pope The Real Deal
  
" I was a Catholic for 37 years (even did good in Parochial school) and then I got "Born Again"." (X Catholic person)

Oh, I am so happy for you! But One question: Are Roman Catholics Saved or are they all doom to hell?

"I hope Catholic's find the REAL Jesus."

They alreadly believe in the Real Jesus, the Son of God who became flesh (born of the Holy Virgin Mary) [John 1:1, 14), who died and rose again three days later and ascended into Heaven according to Scriptures.

False Teachers In The Church
  
"...Mass, Real Presence, and Baptismal regeneration, these beliefs were later developments by the early church fathers who btw had different points of view on these matters." (lee)

Yes, I can see that you have not study the Early Church Fathers nor Church History. Protestant Scholars such as J.N.D Kelly will not agree with you on this. If one study the Early Church Fathers, they all believe in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, Baptismal Regeneration, etc. This is something so air-tight that even Renowned Protestant Historian/Scholar admit this in His Book (Early Christian Doctrines, pg 196-198, pg 194-195, etc). Maybe others who have not study the ECF's will follow your teaching.

Is Halloween For Christians
  
No its not. This Holiday is satanic in Nature (and has a Pagan origin) and should not be celebrated by blood wash Christians. Does anything in Halloween honor God?


Was Martin Luther A Good Model
  
Samuel:

Jesus Christ, the Holy Apostles, and the Early Christians all use the Septuagint. About 300 of the 350 quotation in the NT comes from the Septuagint, which is attested by scholars. Thus, The Eastern Orthodox Church has traditionally use the Septuagint as her official OT Text.

Second, since the time of the Holy Apostles, Christians always accept the Deuterocanonical books as Scriptures. This has been proven and admit by Renowned Protestant Historian J.N.D Kelly ("Early Christian Doctrines" page 53). Protestants use a OT canon put together by some Christ-hated Jews in 90AD in the council of Jamnia and then reaffirm by Martin Luther 1500s years. The Majority of Christians today accept these books as Scriptures.


Was Martin Luther A Good Model
  
When the Church in the 4th Century, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, told us which books belong in the Holy Bible [OT and NT], they did not told us it was 66 books (Council of Rome: 382 AD, Council of Hippo: 392 AD, Council of Carthage: 396 AD). Jews in 90AD [there was no Jewish Bible during Christ' time] decided that they will only accept the Hebrew Scriptures [39 Books] of the OT and rejected the NT. So if you wish to listen to Jews, reject the NT too. Why listen to Martin Luther? He took out books from the Holy Bible.

But, even in Ancient Times and today, not all Jews accept only 39 Books in there OT, but follow the Deuterocanon Books as Scriptures as well [The Ethiopian Jews] (cf. Encyclopedia Judaica, vol. 6, p. 1147).


Type Of Church You Attend
  
"Church traditions [did not] came before the Bible" (Trish)

Yes, it did, because there was no NT Scripture for at least 30 years or so after Jesus ascended to Heaven. The Apostles past down the Holy Traditions by mouth, some were written down in letters [2 Thes. 2:15]. Scriptures is part of Holy Tradition. It was through the Church, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, that gave us the books that belong in the OT and NT in the 4th Cent. Reject the Church, reject the Bible!

All 33,000+ Protestant Churches say that ["I have the Holy Spirit, I do not need men to teach me"], yet they all can be correct. One will have to wonder why your interpretation is the correct one. That is why Protestantism is so corrupt!


Type Of Church You Attend
  
Darlene. O.k, please post a quote from me that I said I was "Catholic"? I have never said I was. You accuse me of being Roman Catholic with no support whatsoever! I am a Eastern Orthodox Christian, not a Roman Catholic Christian as you falsely claim I am.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

One has to be very naive to believe the Early Church defended agaisnt the Gnostics and Arius merely on Scriptures. The Early Christians always submitted to the Authority of the Church (the Holy Apostles' Successors [Apostolic Succession], and the teachings of the Fathers) down the generation (Tertullian, Prescription against the Heretics,33[A.D. 200], Origen, Commentary on Matthew (AD. 244), Irenaeus, Against Heresies,4:33:8(A.D. 180), St. Basil, Holy Spirit,10:25, etc).

For the Fathers they were "convinced of the futility of arguing with heretics merely on the basis of Scripture. The skill and success with which they twisted its plain meaning made it impossible to reach any...conclusion" (Early Christian Doctrines, 41).

Lee:

Yes it did. Even Renowed Protestant Historian J.N.D Kelly and other Historians and Scholars will agree that the Early Church defended agaisnt the heretic Arius, Gnostics, and others using Scriptures [although this proven to futile because Arius always twisted the plain meanings of Scriptures] and Apostolic Succession, meaning "The Church has always believe "X" because this what was delivered by the Holy Apostles, there Holy Successors and the Fathers". This is something Saint Irenaeus in His "Against Heretics" talk about [agaisnt the Gnostics]

I guess you have not study the Early Church Fathers and read the documents of the Seven Ecumenical Councils.

"The Traditions we are to hold fast to are those taught by Jesus [...]2Thess,2:15" (Darlene 1)

Nice interpretation, except 2 Thes 2:15 does not say that, neither does any other Scriptures. Here is what Saint Paul said: ""So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter" (2 Thess. 2:15)

Some people, in error, approach the Bible with the idea that they will depend on the Holy Spirit alone and they will discover all the hidden truths of Scripture. Spiritual teachers of the Church are given by the Lord to help us to correctly understand and obey Scripture. We must read Scriptures through the Living Tradition of the Church.


Honor Mother And Father
  
There are lots of ways we can honor our parents [Ex 20:12, cf. Saint Matthew 15:5-9). We can visit them and spend time with them [talk to them on the phone] . Remembering them on there Birthdays or other days of importance. Taking care of them when they sick or in need of money or shelter. I agree that "lip service" is not enough, but this doesn't mean it is wrong. Being thankful and telling your parents how much you love them and cherish them is important. Although, "actions speaks louder than words".

There is a Chinese proverb that says, "When you have children, you understand what you owe your parents."

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

"Ramon, Because Arius did not agree with the majority he was branded a 'heretic'" (1st Cliff).

Arius, that old liar and serpent, was branded a heretic simply because his teachings was not present in the Holy Scriptures nor was it ever taught by the Church. The Church prove him wrong through Apostolic Succession ("The Church always believe "X") and Holy Scriptures.

1st Cliff, you know my position in this. We have discuss this before. Why do you wish to discuss this again? You reject certain books in the Holy Bible, It is futile to discuss anything with you. You are a Arian, and deny the Bible is 100% True.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

"I also find it interesting that the early church was NOT anti-Semitic as was the RCC, Luther and Calvin, and that even the Apostles in the book of Acts KNEW God was not finished with Israel....as well as Paul in Romans 11." (Kathr4453)

With all due respect, are we talking about the Roman Catholic Church? I am not sure why you are talking about the Roman Catholic Church, since this was not part of the discussion. Maybe I miss something? You do realize that many Non-Catholic [even today] are Anti-Semitic? I think pointing figures at the Roman Catholic Church is unfair.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Are Churches Keeping Us From God
  
Mark V:

Why don't you want learn what our Ancestors taught? There were many things all the Early Church Fathers [1st-10 Centuries] held in Communion. You said there were not infallible, yes, but you also use tools to help you study the Bible, and they not infallible, are they?

"With the help of the Spirit I am capable of reading my Bible with the tools that are available to someone who wants to learn the Truth."

The writings of the Early Church Fathers is one tool we Christians should read and be enlighten by the Great Men [and women] that protected the Apostolic Faith from heretics. How they interpreted Scriptures is very important [versus what modern-interpreters said].
