Christ has warned us, “Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many”. — Matthew 24:4-5. One of the deception of today, is tongue speaking. The experience which the disciples went through has been perverted by professed Christians. Christ had commissioned the disciples, to preach the gospel to all the world, beginning at Jerusalem. They were to preach, teach, and convert souls, not by their own strength, but through the holy...
I think it's been made quite clear that the powers that be have been trying to divide us for years. They've done the same thing with races like white and blacks, whenever cops are involved, they have to bring up the race, (as if that was important to begin with) Or they end up talking about the motive's of the lunatics. Even if you found out the motive, they still broke the law. It doesn't make it less or more heinous of a crime
People act as if if they weren't Muslim, they wouldn't have...
By now you have no doubt heard about the horrific attacks against members of America's LGBT community committed by one of your own on American soil.
My challenge to you is:
Will you condemn these attacks as being backwards and barbaric, in a genuine manner of reconciliation, WITHOUT trying to deflect the blame from Islam? In other words, can you admit that there are verses in the Quran that can be used to justify homophobic terrorism?
Secondly, will you condemn those verses?
My theological positions:
Apostolic succession, celebration of same-sex marriages, rejection of abortion and euthanasia, importance of the liturgy and tradition, women pastor or priest, liberation theology, anti-capitalism, pro-life culture, mysticism, asceticism, seven sacraments, feminism, monasticism, veneration of saints, chastity before marriage and embryo protection and primacy .
Do you believe in God (or a supreme being higher than yourself)?
If you don't, then how come? What is it that you believe as far as this is concerned?
If you do, then how come? What do you call him? IS God a "him" or a "her"? And how many are there according to your belief?
Dear respected Christian/Catholic members.
As per the thread title, I am interested in your views as to which would be a better fit for the situation of Jesus (alayhi salam/peace be upon him).
Let me give you a recap of Islamic beliefs regarding Isa bin Maryam (Jesus the son of Mary);
He was born of a miraculous birth without a father through which not only was he given a high status as a Prophet, but his mother too as a woman, Islam reveres 4 women above all throughout humanity and...
I'm talking about something that innovates the way we live our lives. The teachings of Jesus represent an innovation of the Old Testament. For instance where the OT preached 'an eye for and eye' Jesus preached to turn the other cheek. He offered the beatitudes 'blesses are the poor in spirit, blessed are the meek, etc'. He condemned divorce for any reason other than sexual immorality. He said never to swear an oath. These were all things not found in the Old Testament.
Muslims claim the...
Mary Magdalene, “Apostle to the Apostles,” Given Equal Dignity in Feast
VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis has raised the liturgical celebration of the memorial of St. Mary Magdalene to the dignity of a feast, the same rank given to the liturgical celebration of the Apostles, the Vatican announced on Friday.
The decree, signed by Cardinal Robert Sarah, Prefect of...
Recently I was told a lie. It was made clear to me that this was a lie. I was then told to believe the lie. I argued for some time, expressing my disdain for the command. The order was repeated, I hesitated further and then set out to comply with the command.
The result as of this morning is I now believe the lie. The curious thing, I know it to be a lie. The issue this created can be illustrated by the following example:
Your deity gives you a piece of paper with typing on it. They then...
I read an article a while back (trying to find the link) that talked about how a "religious degree" is basically worthless. It went on to point out that bible colleges or "universities" charge outrageous tuition fees, make you research the same crap you already knew from growing up in church, they are biased toward their particular beliefs and in the end give you a piece of paper that grants you a title for your name.
That same degree does not teach you to perform surgery, become an...
