Samuel, you are not sharing a pizza.

You are not asking them to pray for you and themselves.

If you are having an operation you are not asking someone to share the surgery and pray to Jesus together. No sharing.

//It helps me to know they are praying for me.//

WHY?

Do you have to have a number of requests to Jesus before He can grant the request?

If yes, what is the number?

BTW, my complain is that you are judging all people who do what you CONSIDER wrong, but do the same thing in a different way.

I believe Jesus in Mark 12:26-27

Or do you believe Jesus was speaking symbolically here as well?

Do you think Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were alive when Jesus was walking on earth?
---Nicole_Lacey on 9/10/18


Nicole_Lacey

I asked them to pray for me. Because we are to share with our friends when we are in trouble. It helps me to know they are praying for me. I pray for my church and my family every day. I go straight to Jesus to do so.

I am sorry you thought I was judging you. I meant is was not proper in my view.

Jamess 5:16

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

First the saints are dead. What the state of the dead is up for debate. But that Peter is dead is a fact. The Bible does not condone speaking with the dead. That is also a fact.
---Samuelbb7 on 9/10/18


Samuel: Have I ever asked a friend or family member to pray for me? Yes.//

Why? Did you think Jesus wasn't listening to you? Serious, I am not getting smart.

I truly believe Protestants want is both ways. You want to dictate how Catholics can communicate to Jesus.

BTW saying we can't ask a Saint or the Blessed Mary because you believe they are dead doesn't mean you are right.

Anywho, because you THINK they are Dead thus I shouldn't communicate in that route.

As if Jesus CAN NOT hear my request. But He CAN hear your request as you request it THROUGH another person. ???

//I did not get on my knees to them//

Disagree with our posture? Which the posture is DIRECTED to God not the Saints. Matthew 7:1
---Nicole_Lacey on 9/10/18


Not sure exactly what you mean by "expert."
---Johnny74 on 9/10/18


Dear Cluny.

Have I ever asked a friend or family member to pray for me? Yes. I did not get on my knees to them or ask them to answer my prayer. I asked them to pray to Jesus for me.

But then also they are alive and not dead.

Samuel: I never called you a witch.//

Sorry you thought that, I was speaking to Kathr and put the initials (OT) by the name.

I did ask you if you thought the witch brought up a demon looking like Samuel?

Going against the Narrator of the Bible who tells us the witch brought up Samuel.

//It says Saul perceived or thought it was Samuel.//

Noooo, The Narrator first said it was Samuel and Saul back up the Narrator. Do you believe the accounts of the Bible or not?
//In Hinduism they say they do worship the statue but the god the statue represents.//

I don't practice Hinduism so why tell me about their beliefs?

Cluny answered you but you won't answer him.
---Nicole_Lacey on 9/10/18


\\Why pray to saints when we are told to pray to our High Priest Jesus.\\

Do you mean you NEVER ask othre people to pray for you, Samuel?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 9/9/18

Cluny, NO we don't ask dead people to pray for us..can't you see the difference here? You've said this before and were rebuked then too.

Those asleep in the Lord, AKA DEAD in the flesh, DO NOT COMMUNE WITH THE LIVING ...THOSE still alive in the flesh. Or are you too going to play stupid and give some stupid analogy when the Issue with Saul going to a WITCH to summon Samuel is why God killed Saul. It was forbidden then and NOW. If the practice was ok, then Israel would have had soothsayers and Saul would have gone to one of them.
---kathr4453 on 9/10/18


Micah 5:12 And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thine hand, and thou shalt have no more soothsayers:

Seeing the Orthodox and RCC or Catholic Church practices these things openly, these things God has CUT OFF, and rebuked , would show that only those who continue to practice are a CULT in KNOWING disobedience to God. Another description of Mystery Babylon ...an abomination to God.

And they brag about it......

Dear Nicole I never called you a witch. I am sorry you got that impression. I was referring to the Witch of Endor spoken of in the Bible.

A servant of Satan cannot call up the dead. They can only summon demons. If you read the passage. It says Saul perceived or thought it was Samuel. The passages also says gods came out of the ground. Where those real gods? Or demons who claim that because there is only one true GOD.

In Hinduism they say they do worship the statue but the god the statue represents.

Why pray to saints when we are told to pray to our High Priest Jesus. 1JOhn. Hebrews.
---Samuelbb7 on 9/9/18




Nicole, you can play dumb here, but one day when you stand before God, He will read back all your very words, where you won't be able to play dump, UNLESS YOU ARE Mentally challenged.......where in cases like that, .....I'm not sure what will become of the truly ....well......

It's not that you can't read or write...and you were given a free government education for nursing school. So with that, I don't believe the Lord is going to fall for your analogies, like many here don't fall for them either.

Kathr: you continue to twist scripture to support worshiping graven images, and praying to Mary,//

Here we go again.

1. I ONLY worship God.

2. I NEVER used Scripture to support worshiping creatures or graven images.

3. I KNOCKED down your crazy claim that I was worshiping a statue just because I was kneel or looking at the statue by using Scripture.

It has not pass me that you or your friend hasn't or CAN'T ADDRESS Number 21:8-9 every time I use it against you all.

You dance, jump, or scream around those passages

//I never gave my daughter Jesus statutes, Mary dolls, or dolls of Saints.//

So I guess you DID give her other GRAVEN IMAGES?
---Nicole_Lacey on 9/8/18


Nicole, you continue to twist scripture to support worshiping graven images, and praying to Mary, as though she can hear you. THAT IS THE ISSUE you want to change the subject here.

I already told you once, I never gave my daughter Jesus statutes, Mary dolls, or dolls of Saints. Nor did I ever teach her that prayer beads are scriptural, or repeated words are prayer. What exactly is a HAIL MARY anyway? Is there magic in those words?

This is scripture YOU don't believe. Also scripture has no POPES or any doctrine about any power transferred down from Peter, again another NOT IN SCRIPTURE NONSENSE you believe.

Shall I go on?
---kathr4453 on 9/3/18


Kathr: Again you have been warned. No excuses. It will be judged.//

WOW. As you were lying on me we have established some facts about you.

Well the facts seem to be discovered because you refuse to answer one question and admitted another question.

1. You DON'T believe everything in the Bible.

2. If something in the Bible DOESN'T match you logical thinking you will change words and it's meaning.

3. You allowed your daughters to have graven images, but no one else can have graven images in their home.

Not for thee but for me.

Interesting.

Kathr: Saul DIED because he disobeyed God and went to a witch to summon the dead...WHICH IS CALLED WITCHCRAFT.//

WHO is arguing that point? BACK UP YOUR BLASPHEMY STATEMENT!

You are claiming the witch didn't bring up Samuel but a demon.

Even though the Narrator of 1 Samuel states it was Samuel the witch brought up from the dead, and Saul recognized the person to be Samuel NOT a demon as you are claiming 4 thousand centuries later!

You KNOW better than the Narrator and everyone who read these passages are wrong!Jews and Christians alike.

//So what is your excuse for your practicing witchcraft?//

Are you calling me a witch?

You are rich!

Samuel (OT) is a demon and now I am a witch.
---Nicole_Lacey on 9/3/18


Well it was no secret that David was getting the Kingdom since God already told David he was.

Regardless, Saul DIED because he disobeyed God and went to a witch to summon the dead...WHICH IS CALLED WITCHCRAFT.

So are you also going to excuse witchcraft in your daily worship because it too is in the Bible. So what is your excuse for your practicing witchcraft?

Again you have been warned. No excuses. It will be judged.

WAIT A MINUTE!

Samuel and Kathr, are you both claiming the witch brought up a demon and NOT Samuel to Saul?

Please answer yes or no.

So the Narrator of 1 Samuel is lying to us which means you believe the BIBLE is LYING?

Because the Bible STATES via the Narrator it was Samuel and that Saul KNEW it was Samuel. 1 Samuel 28:11-19

So the Narrator's story of Saul asking the Witch to bring up Samuel is a lie?

Instead the witch brought up a demon pretending to be Samuel AND the Narrator DOESN'T want us to know it was a demon?

A demon told Saul that David was getting the Kingdom?

If you believe it was demon and not Samuel you both are sad.

MY BIBLE DOESN'T LIE TO ME!
---Nicole_Lacey on 9/2/18


Samuel, I'll have to agree on that one. Luke also confirms the dead , whether those that were in Abrahams Bosom or those below, cannot communicate with the living. It was asked and suggested, and totally shot down. So a witch, totally separated from God in every way, also knowing God cannot hear the the prayers of sinners as scripture states, did not as well hear any request from the witch. Also seeing supposedly Samuel in clothing ...ghost clothing, is interestingly, seems to parallel people today who say they saw this or that, dressed in Civil war cloths, etc, is all demonic.
---kathr4453 on 8/21/18


Kathr can't help herself. She enjoys debating me as I enjoy debating her.

Once and awhile we stop talking to each other, but sooner or later we renew the flames again. :D
---Nicole_Lacey on 8/20/18


On Samuel. The wicked witch cannot call up the ghost of a servant of the Lord. Who is asleep in the grave. Nor do gods come out of the ground.

The Devil predicted that Saul and his sons who were fighting a larger more powerful army without the help of the LORD would die.
An Atheist could have made that prediction. Much less the Intelligent fallen angel.

To Kathr4453:

In Christian fellowship and by what THE LORD'S admonishes us in GOD'S WORD, (and I'm the one to recognize and should apply this and in obedience to THE LORD when in reference to someone that over and over keep on refusing to accept GODS' TRUTH:

As THE LORD said: "Let the dead bury their dead" Luke 9:60 . . . don't waste your words and energy with someone that openly rejects THE TRUTH and even adulterated It - in serious judgment they are, but they won't listen to admonitions - share it with those who have been touched by GOD'S SPIRIT and in humbleness to receive it!
---Melody on 8/19/18


Kathr, I quote more from the Bible than anyone on CN.

I judge little of other people because I don't think I am God. I follow Jesus in Matthew 7:1

I believe Jesus in John 6. You all don't believe Jesus and make excuses so that you don't have to convert to the Catholic Church or the Orthodox Church.

No matter how clear Jesus is in John 6 you all have to make dumb, ridiculous, strange, made up insert words NOT in the chapter to stay in your comfortable denomination.

You want to choose your KIND of Christianity to your liken. And if you get tired of that denomination, no matter there are over 30,000 other denomination. You all want to mold your Christianity as you wish not as Jesus commanded.
---Nicole_Lacey on 8/20/18


"For there's ONE GOD AND ONE MEDIATOR between GOD and men, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST" Timothy 2:5 . .

Over and over again those who won't accept GOD'S WORD in totality and still not in commitment unto THE LORD, they keep on making up their own 'assumptions' of why they communicate with idols and for whatever their reasons given - they are under rebellion of what THE LORD says in HIS WORD: HE forbids communicating with anyone that have passed away, and by doing this, they don't recognize the spiritual danger that they are and put in them by a pagan religion - a spiritual from the dark possession away from THE LIGHT that is CHRIST our LORD!
---Melody on 8/19/18


"Every WORD OF GOD IS PURE: HE IS A SHIELD unto them that put their trust in HIM'.

"Add thou not unto HIS WORDS, lest HE reprove thee, and thou be found a liar". Proverbs 30: 5,6.

"He that turns away his ear from hearing The Law (and which greater than GOD'S LAW/Precepts/Commandments?) even his prayer shall be abomination".

"Whose causes the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: But the upright shall have good things in possession". Proverbs 28: 9

In according to everyone's conscience before THE LORD - apply it!

Melody, only those Born Again and have the Indwelling Holy Spirit KNOW and are convicted about such things.

Nicole, well, will never see these things as long as her pride stands in the way, making excuse after excuse why it's ok in her eyes. She seeks out truth from her church and pope, not 100% on the Word of God. Satan has blinded her eyes on this truth. And of coarse her heart and conscience have been hardened against the truth. They have spent hundreds and hundreds upon hundreds of years justifying their belief here, and programmed with the excuses she uses to rationalize away Gods will.

Kathr: why are you "communicating" with the dead.//

I believe Jesus in Mark12:27/Luke 20:38 He is not God of the dead but of the living.

Or do you think Jesus was speaking symbolically here also?

//King Saul did and he suffered//

I thought Samuel was DEAD to you?

The witch didn't rise Samuel from the dead. Samuel asked why you disturbed me not raised me from the dead. Also Samuel knew what was going on with Saul and what would happen to Saul in the future. 1 Samuel 28:16-20

If DEAD how did he know that info?

BTW, your nasty witchcraft comment isn't true.

We don't ASK to see Mary or the Saints when we pray to them nor do we ask them to speak BACK to us. We ASK THEM TO SPEAK TO GOD!
---Nicole_Lacey on 8/19/18


Kathr4453:

Sometimes we have to apply GOD'S WORD exactly as THE LORD applied it, even thou it might sound rough: What did HE say about those who constantly are despising (not your own words) but GOD'S WORD about their voluntary twisting and denial of those things in which they believe? - idolatry: "Don't give the pearls to the . . . for if so, they'll throw back at you"!

Ok Nicole, if you say pray means to "communicate", then why are you "communicating" with the dead. THIS is exactly what King Saul did and he suffered awful consequences for his disobedience. That has not changed in Gods eyes. Witchcraft is witchcraft ....so what witches are you going to to communicate with the dead? OR are you all just witches and into sorcery yourselves?

Why do you all blatantly disobey God?

I am surprise being from the UK you don't know what the word 'pray' means?

'Pray' means communication NOT worship.

David in my understanding there is the denominations in the world.

Then there is the true church which only Jesus knows. They Love GOD love others and walk in love. Those know the truth. Many just follow what the like and tickles their ears.
---Samuelbb7 on 8/17/18


Our Apostle Paul says we need "faith working through love," in Galatians 5:6. So, when people tell me about faith, I listen for if they talk about this.

My opinion, Nicole, is that each person's own personality and character has a lot to do with how he or she understands his or her faith's official beliefs. No matter how well you know official ideas of faith, your character has much to do with if and how well you live the way God wants.

David, I totally agree with your statement. One thing, is when we speak TRUTH, as revealed to us BY GOD, it is also accompanied by the Holy Spirit. It's the Holy Spirit who is speaking to us or through us. This I believe is what is meant by insulting the Holy Spirit of Grace.

So the unforgivable sin is actually rejecting the very words of God. This also seems to be reiterated in Hebrews 10.

BUT no independent Words apart from the scriptures have any anointing of truth. Jesus said MY WORDS ARE SPIRIT AND LIFE. Totally agreeing with your ststement.

WE have an unction from the Holy Spirit to discern truth from lie. Again 1st John.

Even 1 John reiterates ...and these three witnesses......

Truth either brings conviction or anger. ---kathr4453 on 8/16/18

True,....if it is the Truth.
But just because you believe in something, that does not make it the Truth.

I do not believe in God because others believe in God. I believe in God, because God reveals himself to me. Our Truth about God, must comes from God, else we will never know the Truth.

I once thought I could show folks here on CN the Truth, by using the Bible, but discovered it to be a fruitless endeavor. The Lord called those wise, who do what he tells them to do, but the Church today, believes we are fools.

Yes. I can be an expert about another faith from the outside. But only by reading what those on the inside say. I am often attacked for being a Seventh day Adventist. Much of what others say are false about us. But I have talked with critics who make good points.

But the majority have never read what we teach. I know that happens to members of the RCC also.

Also not all members of a denomination believe exactly the same thing on everything. It is sad but true. Many do not listen to others. In happens in politics also. People make a straw man or woman enemy and don't listen.

Those who love others need to listen.

Our own bias does cloud another person's faith.---Nicole_Lacey on 8/11/18

Nicole
Not just faith, but we are biased about everything we believe. Bias is a tool Satan can use to separate us, a tool which causes us to hate. Look at politics in America. It has caused a hatred in this country, the likes I have never seen. Religious beliefs are not much different.

Its very difficult, for most, to argue their point without getting emotionally involved. Even if you are right, and they are wrong...the mind becomes closed when the wall of hate goes up.

I do my best to keep it down, but I can not control what Satan puts into the hearts of those of whom I may disagree.

---Melody on 8/15/18


Scripture clearly says no one can come to the Father except THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. We pray to the Father THROUGH JESUS. So why would anyone think that can pray through Mary? Or that Mary is the mediator between God and man? So yes, prayer is also a form of WORSHIP. Communing with the Father is worship....and to commune with Mary is false worship.

It is witchcraft for Christians to summons the dead. Why Catholics think they are exempt from this is beyond me.

Melody: Nicole: You are very quick to make assumptions of other people beliefs that are based in The Bible//

Sweetheart, the Catholic Church reads more Scriptures out loud DAILY esp. on Sunday than Protestant Churches. Your Preacher only reads couple of verses on Sundays.
And worst than that he choose which verses he wants you to hear about. Not the Catholic Church. The CC makes sure the we hear the WHOLE Bible and not what the Pastor wants to preach about.

So why do you ALLOW your Pastor decide what to preach about?

Plus, you DIDN'T ANSWER my question.

If you DON'T KNOW just SAY so, but don't ATTACK me because you DON'T have a clue what age a child has to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.

KarenD: One only needs to study a religion's own material to know what they believe//

Yet no where in the CCC does it state we worship Mary or idols.

David, you explained it beautifully. Our own bias does cloud another person's faith.

Why people try tell me what the Catholic Church believes when they are too lazy to read the Catholic Church's Catechism?

Debate us on the actual teaching of the Catechism, not your own wrong made up ccc.

That's like a Russian telling me U.S.A has 53 States.

Because an ignorant American told him we have 53 States thinking PR, Guam and U.S. Virgin Islands are States.

No
I believe our beliefs create a bias, a bias which does not allow us to fully understand an opposing faith. I too am biased, biased by the teachings of Jesus Christ, which I believe to be the New Covenant.

Others are biased, because they believe Paul was given a Newer Covenant, one which seemingly voided the covenant Jesus taught. Which is why Paul said what he did in (1 Corinthians 1:17).

HOWEVER that doesnt mean you have to agree especially if its against scripture, but unless you've read their sources and been around them then you dont know them.

Yes. Lots of people have degrees in Theology and have studied various religions. One only needs to study a religion's own material to know what they believe and if their beliefs are Biblical or traditions of man.

"Are you a faith expert"?

My own understanding about it, and if it's there a right answer to that: "Faith comes from hearing, and hearing from GOD'SWORD" . . . first of all: In order for us to have the true faith that only comes from our LORD, there have to be a beginning into that: Have we experienced being Born Again/saved through total and sincere repentance from our sins before THE LORD and accepted GOD'S GIFT to us sinners, by THE LORD becoming our own Personal SAVIOUR AND LORD? - then . . . and because of that: GOD'S SPIRIT within our heart, will start implanting in our spiritual hearts that kind of faith that HE desires from us and into spiritual maturity . . . Amen!
