How Was Christianity Maintained
  
My Father in law used to say. I am Roman Catholic not like these half way people.

We use Roman Catholic to differentiate between the church lead by the Bishop of Rome and those who are not under his leadership. I also live in Texas. Many Hispanics say Roman Catholic. But it is not universal as you say.

For instance to me the Seventh day Adventist church is catholic. Since we are of many nations and people throughout the world.

But we are not under the Bishop of Rome. Our High Priest is Jesus Christ.

Roman Catholics are indeed Christians. We disagree with the Theology.


Brother Sister In Christ
  
Nicole they are not twin brothers according to Latter day Saints doctrines. Just same Father different mothers.

Since GOD has multiple wives.

The Book of Mormon has very bad history.

American Indians are not Jews.


New Covenant With Israel
  
The problem in Galatians is that the Pharisee Christians wanted the Gentiles to keep Circumcision and add works to be saved.

The New Covenant has the law written in our hearts. Hebrews 8:8-10 The church is Israel.

The Ten Commandments are to be written in our hearts in Love. Christians obey because they are saved. They walk in love. Love fulfills the law. Romans 13. When you love you don't want to break the Ten Commandments.

Very good points Strong Ax.

Today we have leaders. They are titled Bishops in the Bible. Church leaders. But they are not Apostles since they didn't live as you say in the first Century.

Paul was an Apostle but by divine vision. No one can add to the Bible today.

That is one of the big mistakes many make. LDS included. They follow a Charismatic person instead of following Jesus and the Bible.

I have had Pentecostals tell me it is what they feel that counts. Not what the Bible says. This is true of other people in other churches. They follow their emotions.

Thank you John very good points.

There was a recent show on the History channel about James the forgotten brother of Jesus. It also spoke on the Ossuary.

Peter reported to James the Bishop of Jerusalem. Which was first. Long before there was a Church in Rome.

Sola Scriptura is what is taught in the Bible.

Scriptures Of The Early Church
  
The Early Scriptures used by Christians was the Old Testament. Jews were very literate people. Many heard the entire Bible read and others owned many parts of it. But Paul started writing and the Gospels were written about 30 years after the death of Jesus. That is historian best guess.

Mark is considered the first Gospel written and Galatians first letter written.

There is many places you can check this out. But there are some people out there trying to prove the Bible false who make many claims not backed up with facts.

Dear Monk.

We have always been Civil. Now you stated the Catholic and Orthodox. Which is more than many Roman Catholics do.

I will disagree a little. The Early church was catholic. Not Roman Catholic. I am sure you know that catholic means universal.

But the Roman Catholic came much latter. To me as the church gained power the Gospel was held but the leaders started substituting traditions which often enriched the leaders and hid the Gospel. But the Christian core held. But as the leaders built themselves up they failed to keep the Gospel pure.

Which is why the Reformers tried to bring the church back to the Bible.

Sola scriptura is based on the words of the Bible.


Mix Of Grace Law Or
  
No one is saved by works.

But no one who is saved will not work. All those who are saved will produce fruit.

Galatians 5:18-25 ... But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Ephesians 2. Love works.


God Of Old New Testament
  
It seems that some people here have trouble with the Trinity doctrine.

The Bible never uses the word Trinity. Since it is a theological term used by men to help describe the GODHEAD.

One GOD three persons. That the Trinity is true is easy to find. Hard to understand.

Many find a difference between GOD in the Old and New Testament. Me not so much. Jesus is GOD so when we look at Jesus we see who GOD is.

Monk you forget that the Jew understood them to be good books but not scripture.

Nor that many Scholars over the centuries looked on them as lessor. So not 1500 years of history.

By the way I have read them. I have a Catholic Bible that I have read. Plus a Second that I have only half read.


Mix Of Grace Law Or
  
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand, By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

This is the Gospel. Those who believe will love GOD and love others. Works happen because you love. They are part of the fruit of being filled with the Holy Spirit.


Christ Baptist Church
  
So true Mark. So true.

Hope you have a Happy New Year.

Let us keep our eyes on Jesus.

Seventh day Adventist are boring. We mostly name our churches after their location.

Do Prophets Exist Today
  
Lazano True Prophets only speak for GOD. They don't use anything but what GOD has told them and the Bible.

The Bible does not say there will be no more prophets.

Acts 2:16-18

1Thesslonians 5:20,21 Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things, hold fast that which is good.

What is true. Is you test prophets by the Bible. They must agree with all the word of GOD.

False prophets. Want you to believe them above the Bible

Also remember the main job of a prophet is to rebuke sin. That is never popular.


Without Law No Sin
  
Mark and Kathyr good point.

The purpose of the law is to define sin. Nor is the law gone because of Grace.

Romans 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.
2. The law does not save. Its job is to define sin. Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

Law tells us we are sinners. We are told how to be saved by Jesus Christ.

Paul and Jesus agree. When people teach they don't they are teaching falsely.


Christ Baptist Church
  
Monk and John good points.

If they took the images off the money people would still worship money.

When you ask a friend to pray for you that is not worshipping

But when you bow down to a statue and pray to that person hoping to get them to do what you want and that they will convince Jesus to do your will.

That is idolatry.

We only pray to GOD. Jesus Christ is our High Priest and he alone.

Agape


Without Law No Sin
  
We are saved by believing in Lord Jesus Christ.

But were to not live in sin.

1John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

What is the job of the law.

Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

So the law tells us we are sinners. But cannot save us. That is why the law points us to Jesus.

Galatians 3:24,25 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ,...

When we accept Jesus the law of GOD is written in our hearts. Hebrews 8.8,10

Romans 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.
