    I was baptized catholic as a baby. I was not raised in the church for whatever reason and I became lost. The last year I have had a strong calling of returning to the church. So here I am. I’m taking my daughters to mass for the first time. Reading the Bible and the catechism. It’s a lot to take in and your videos help a lot. Thank you father.

      Question of the week 35: 1/28/2023
      Hope you had a wonderful Sabbath, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Praise God and worship Him in His holy 7th day (completion of His 6 days creation). Reminding us that He is the Creator.
      Answer to Question of the week 34:
      Question was:
      Does God test our faith?
      ---------------------------------
      The answer is right in the Lord's prayer.
      >Matthew 6:13
      And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
      Bible gave us many examples that God has tested His people.
      Here are few...
      - Tree of knowledge at the garden of Eden - Adam and Eve broke 1st, 8th and 10th commandments (Stealing, Covetousness and wanted to be like God.)
      - Abraham was told to sacrifice Issac but God stopped him before it happened. - Abraham kept the 1st commandment (There is no other god...only Yahweh, God the creator)
      Abraham believed God that through Issac the promised seed (Jesus) will come. First coming of Jesus.
      - Job's faith was tested when Satan challenged God that Job would curse Him if His protection were removed from Job. Thus Satan was able to destroy everything Job had except his wife.
      >Job 1:21
      And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.
      - Daniel and Hebrew boys were tested under the reign of Babylon Empire.
      Daniel - Den of Lions (Daniel chapter 6)
      Hebrew boys - Burning fiery furnace (Daniel chapter 3)
      They rather die then obey man.
      All apostles and disciples were tested during the crucifixion of Jesus.
      We may ask "Why would God tests His people?"
      Because we have a free will. We make choices with what is in our hearts.
      Our hearts are deceitful. Is your heart truly with Him or just giving the lip service?
      >Matthew 15:8
      This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
      We will be all tested just before the great tribulation in the last days before the second coming of Jesus.
      We will be challenged to choose whom we worship. God the creator or the beast.
      >Revelation 14:7
      Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
      >Revelation 14:9
      And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
      Remember...
      >Romans 6:16
      Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
      =============================
      Question of the week:
      What is the reward when Jesus said,
      >Revelation 22:12
      And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Praise God and worship Him in His holy 7th day (completion of His 6 days creation). Reminding us that He is the Creator.
      Answer to Question of the week 33:
      Question was:
      Who is the originator of SDA (Seventh Day Adventist)?
      Hint: Genesis chapter 2 and 3.
      ------------------------------------
      As we are Christian (follower of Jesus), we must live by every word proceeth out of mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4)
      In the beginning, after 6 days of creation He created one more day to complete His work.
      Seventh Day was created...
      >Genesis 2:1-3
      1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
      2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
      3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
      As He blessed and sanctified the seventh day, it is included in His Ten Love commandments; commanding us to rest and worship on His holy 7th day.
      >Isaiah 58:13
      If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on MY HOLY DAY; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
      --------------------------------
      Adventist...The first coming...
      The meaning of Advent (Advent comes from the Latin word meaning "coming."): Advent is a period of spiritual preparation in which many Christians make themselves ready for the coming, or birth of the Lord, Jesus Christ.
      After Adam and Eve sinned, the message of 1st coming of savior was given to Adam and Eve.
      >Genesis 3:15
      And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
      THEREFORE, JESUS IS THE ORIGINATOR OF THE SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST.
      The Patriarchs and God's children have long waited for the first coming of Jesus. They were the first Seventh Day Adventists.
      They kept the Sabbath Day while they were expecting Messiah to come.
      >John 1:41
      He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.
      >John 4:25
      The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
      ----------------------
      The second coming...
      Jesus said, He will come again...
      John 14:3
      And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
      John 14:28
      Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
      ----------------------------------
      Jesus said,
      >Matthew 12:8
      For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.
      The Seventh Day Sabbath is owned by Jesus as we are too owned by Him.
      Keeping His holy 7th day is recognizing that He is the creator as it states in His 4th commandment.
      >Exodus 20:8-11
      11 11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
      What Jesus expect of us to do on these last days? Keeping His 4th holy 7th day Sabbath commandment along with other 9 commandments and expect His return.
      >Revelation 14:7
      7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
      >Revelation 22:12
      And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
      Are we doer of His word or just giving Him the lip service?
      >Luke 6:47-48
      >47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
      48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
      Are we believers of His word or just hearer?
      >John 14:23
      Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
      -Do we believe He is the Creator? If answer is yes, then we would keep His holy 7th day Sabbath. (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown)
      Those don't...Jesus calls them evil doers.
      >Isaiah 56:2
      Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
      -Do we believe He is coming again? If answer is yes, then we are an Adventist.

    I was born and raised catholic, went through a rough patch where I said this can’t be real and converted to Islam, stayed that way for almost a year, and finally went on to realize Islam was not the truth- Christianity is the truth, but I thought Catholicism ain’t it and became a Pentecostal Christian, I went back to Catholic Church today, and I just felt the presence of God. Catholicism is the truth and I’m glad to be catholic again.

      @Charles Adams Do you copy and post your comment? The Catholic Church is not a denomination. The non-denomination is the denomination of non-denomination.

    • Charles Adams
      Charles Adams Před 17 dny

      Read The Bible and you will know the many many flaws in catholicism. We do not need to confess to a priest to be forgiven, but to God. We do not pray to or through anyone- when Jesus rose from the dead the veil between man and God was torn. It says to call no man father (likely meaning church leaders) and catholics call the priest father. It says nothing about a priest not being allowed to marry- it actually says that doctrines of demons will say to not be given in marriage and abstain from certain foods (catholicm and islam), it says nothing about the pope, and the church founded by peter was not catholicism but the church of the apostles- catholicism began when the romans realized they could not stop christianity so they adopted it and made it their own by adding their pagan practices. If mary was to be so revered and praised and idolized- then it would say it. Jesus says no one born of a woman was as great as John the Baptist- mary was not as great as him- and neither or them should be idolized.
      Under the vatican is a painting of lucifer and there are idols all around (likely ancient romans idols). If catholicism was the “one true church” then it would never have this- it would be destroyed immediately. Remember that ezekiel had a vision where he looked inside the temple and saw wicked abominations and leaders worshipped idols. Follow Jesus Christ, not the catholic church. Do not join denominations.

    Religion is so new to me and I still don't get many things, so I am very grateful of how easy Fr. Mike explains Catholicism. Thank you! :)

      @Syphax Africanus well, you talk about a church, theologians who tried to make sense of the Bible for 2k years. No one believes in Greek Mythology because it was replaced by Christianity 2k years, not because you couldn’t rationally make sense of it (in a metaphorical way).

    • Lomu Habana
      Lomu Habana Před 14 dny

      @London Sorry but what Jordan Peterson says is a quite common description of the Bible by Catholic clerics and some more secular people alike. It’s nothing special.
      Just with the difference that JBP is intentionally vague HOW he actually believes, with things like: “Do you believe that Jesus really rose from the dead? Wel, I would need days to answer this!”. His typical over-complication/over-mystification.
      But yeah, Evangelicals are sometimes just nuts and believe that the earth is 6k years old. It is then understandable that some atheists/non-religious people have misconceptions about Christians.

      *Read your Bible* and stop letting them tell you about God through the Catechism or their doctrines. *Trust in Jesus Christ alone.* I used to be a Catholic too. Please read your Bible, ask your priests questions and *tell them to cite from the Bible ONLY to receive answers.*
      For example, why do we call you FATHER when the Bible tells me not to? *"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." (Matthew 23:9)* *Tell them you want an answer from the Bible ONLY to explain this.* If they cite anything else that is not from the Bible, then they are dodging the question and you are being deceived. God bless you!

      And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
      >Genesis 1:14
      And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
      Months were already established.
      >Genesis 8:5
      And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.
      >Genesis 8:13
      And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
      Days are determined by the phases of the Moon cycle.
      1st day of every month begins with New moon.
      So, when is God's New Year's day? March 21 (Abib) for 2023.
      Abib (also called Nisan), an ear of corn, the month of newly-ripened grain ( Exodus 13:4; 23:15); It began about the time of the vernal equinox (marks the beginning of spring), It was called Nisan, after the Captivity ( Nehemiah 2:1).
      On the fifteenth day of the month, harvest was begun by gathering a sheaf of barley, which was offered unto the Lord on the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
      On the 3rd day of creation;
      >Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
      On the 6th day, Adam and Eve, and all the creatures that God created were able to eat the fruits, grains and nuts.
      -------------------
      When the children of Israel (People of God) were under the bondage of Egypt for 430 years, they have forgotten what was established by God.
      He reiterated the timelines according His guidelines.
      >Deuteronomy 16:1
      Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the Lord thy God: for in the month of Abib the Lord thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.
      >Exodus 12:2
      This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
      >Leviticus 23:5
      In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the Lord's passover.
      >2 Chronicles 35:1
      Moreover Josiah kept a passover unto the Lord in Jerusalem: and they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month.
      >Ezra 6:19
      And the children of the captivity kept the Passover upon the fourteenth day of the first month.
      God has set every events according to His timeline with His Calendar.
      -Seventh day Sabbath
      -Flood
      -Birth of Issac.
      -Freeing 430 years of bondage the children of Israel who dwelt in Egypt. (Exodus 12:40)
      -Feast days (pointing to Jesus).
      -70 years of Babylon captivity.
      -70 years of Daniel's prophecy.
      -Birth of Jesus.
      -Death of Jesus
      -Pentecost.
      -Gospel open to the gentiles.
      -1260 years prophecy (Under the Papal power/dark age of Bible)
      -2300 years prophecy (Cleansing of the sanctuary - began atonement of Jesus)
      Date of Day of the Lord's return was not given.
      >2 Peter 3:9
      The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
      So should we dismiss God's calendar?
      Jesus said,
      >Matthew 4:4
      Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
      As we are children of God, should we not keep all His word?
      Nevertheless, we are using secular calendar (Gregorian) in tune with the world.
      Feast of the Tabernacle remains to be observed. Will be fulfilled at the 2nd coming of Jesus.
      Also,
      >Isaiah 66:23
      And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.
      ====================================================
      Question of the week: What does it mean when Jesus said,
      >Mark 3:33
      And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?

      Please be aware, a person must trust/believe in their heart ONLY on the following to receive the UNMERITED FREE GIFT of salvation (born again), and be forgiven of all sins (past/present/future). The gospel (good news) by which believers are saved:
      1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV) - "Christ (Jesus, God the Son who came as God in flesh) died (shed his blood) for our sins according to the Scriptures, He was Buried, and he Rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”
      God wants to Give the FREE GIFT of salvation to every person, BUT, there is ONE Condition: Trust ONLY on Jesus’ payment for all sins at the cross. Notice God describes what he did to pay for our sins, not what we do to earn salvation. This is a One Time Decision and ONE STEP. When a person trusts in their heart (Believes) ONLY on Jesus' payment for our sins at the cross, they are made Born again by God (made spiritually sinless); Forgiven of all sins-past/present/future, SAVED, and PERMANENTLY SEALED. All born again believers will leave at the Rapture.
      Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV) - “For by GRACE are ye saved through faith; and that NOT of yourselves: it is the gift of God; NOT of works, lest any man should boast.” (Faith ALONE Only on Jesus’ death (shedding of his blood), burial, resurrection ALONE, is required. GRACE means UNMERITED FREE GIFT. NO human effort or works can be involved in receiving or keeping salvation. Believing the New Testament Gospel of Salvation, plus NOTHING, results in Salvation.)
      Please be aware, Salvation is NOT received if we have any faith/trust for salvation on ANY Human Effort, such as Repenting of Sins, Confessing, Giving your Heart or Life to God, Praying, Turning from Sins, Confirmation, Asking the Lord to Come into your Heart, Verbally Calling, Loving the Lord, Following the Lord, Religious Works, Commandment Keeping, Mary, or Water Baptism, etc, etc.....
      IF we believe we are saved (made born again by God) based on faith PLUS ANY human effort, or by human effort alone, then we are Not under Grace (UNMERITED FREE GIFT), but are under the law (God’s commandments), Condemned, and Not saved.
      Romans 11:6 (KJV), “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace....”
      We Cannot be Saved with any Faith for Salvation on Water Baptism or any Works / Human Effort:
      1 Corinthians 1:17 (KJV) - “For Christ sent me NOT to BAPTIZE, but to preach the gospel; not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of NO EFFECT.”
      Faith Only on Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, not water baptism, must be the way of receiving salvation. Water baptism was for people (primarily Jewish) offered salvation and the kingdom on earth by the Gospel (good news) of the Kingdom, where a work under Old Testament law, water baptism, was required commandment keeping, which ONLY showed evidence of their saving faith.
      The thief on the cross was NOT water baptized, but he was saved. So, even when water baptism was commanded, which was under OT law, it was not required for salvation.
      We are NOT under OT law:
      Romans 10:4 (KJV), “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.”
      If we trust on any works or human effort for salvation, we will NOT be saved.
      Galatians 3:10 (KJV), “For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.”
      (We can’t continue in all things of the law (10 commandments), because we have already BROKEN the law, and are condemned by the law.)
      Galatians 5:4 (KJV), “Christ is become of NO EFFECT unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law (works); ye are fallen (separated) from grace (not saved).
      Romans 3:20 (KJV), “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight:....”:
      More Verses on HOW TO BE SAVED (BORN AGAIN):
      Acts 16:30-31(KJV) - “The Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.”
      (‘Believe’ for Salvation in the New Testament means trust in your heart only on Jesus’ (God the Son who came as God in flesh) death (shedding of his blood), burial, and resurrection.)
      Romans 3:28 (KJV) - “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law”
      Romans 4:5 (KJV), “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness”
      Once Saved Always Saved and Eternal Security for the Born Again Believer:
      We MUST Be Born Again (made permanently spiritually sinless by God) by FAITH ALONE; then we have Eternal Security, and CAN’T LOSE Salvation. Believing that a person can lose salvation means we incorrectly believe we can obtain or keep salvation, which includes leaving in the rapture, by HUMAN EFFORT. That means we approach God for salvation with faith on HUMAN EFFORT, and that means NO salvation:
      John 3:3 (KJV), “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
      Titus 3:5 (KJV), “NOT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit.”
      Ephesians 4:30 (KJV), “And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are SEALED unto the day of redemption.”
      John 6:37 (KJV), “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I WILL NO WISE CAST OUT.”
      John 10:28-29 (KJV), “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and NO MAN is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.”
      2 Corinthian 1:22 (KJV), “Who hath also Sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.”
      Jesus came as God the Son and God in flesh:
      Isaiah 9:6 (KJV), “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God......."
      Titus 2:13 (KJV), “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.”
      Colossians 1:15 (KJV), “Jesus is the image of the invisible God......"
      1 Timothy 3:16 (KJV), “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh."

      Question of the week 30: 12/17/2022
      Hope you had a wonderful and blessed Sabbath day, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Answer to Question of the week 29:
      Question was: What is First Love in this verse?
      >Revelation 2:4
      Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
      When we first learned about our savior, Jesus, our hearts overcame with joy and happiness and could not describe the sensations we felt as we can't hardly contain them.
      With that enthusiastic emotions we want to spread the gospel of Jesus to anyone we meet and to the whole world every moment of the day.
      We are in love with Him.
      This acts of caress needs time and effort and hard work. And remembering the things Jesus spoken to us.
      As the time passes that zealousness has fizzled out and started to tip our toes back into the cares of the world.
      Are we saying ourselves this?
      >Luke 12:45-46
      45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
      46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
      Proverbs 14:12
      There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
      So be ready!
      QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
      How can we revive the feeling of First Love back again?
      FYI: Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating this Feast of the dedication.
      Evening of 2nd day, Sunday (12/18/22) to evening of Monday (12/26/22). 8 days of celebration.
      >John 10:22-23
      22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.

    Thank you Father Mike. I love your videos because you do a wonderful job of helping me understand the Catholic Church. I moved from a Baptist church to the Catholic Church about 8 years ago. I am now 62 years old. I attended RCIA and my wife and I was married in the church even thought we have been married 37 years. She is a cradle Catholic. To make a long story short, we were happy with the church we were attending but then one day, while driving I heard a strong voice tell me, “Go to the Catholic Church.” I was shaken by this and went home and told my wife and brother. They asked me what I was going to do. I said it was probably my imagination and I then ignored it. Well about 2 months later the exact same thing happened only with more authority. Well, there was no ignoring it this time. My wife was excited to return to the Catholic Church and told me about the church and RCIA. The next Sunday we went to a Catholic Church nearby. When we got to the church a man was greeted people so I explained I was new and I asked him about RCIA. He said that the next session started Thursday and he also plans to attend as a helper in the class. Well he ended up being my sponsor in RCIA and his wife and him stood up with my wife and I when we were married in the church. We later encouraged me to join the KofC. I am telling you all this to show how God planned it all out and we are now in the original Christian church. I now keep watch for when God puts other opportunities and changes in front of me. Once again thank you. 🙏🏻

      @Wesley Nunez Matthew 23 does not say what you said. It says call no man father on earth. Now you are saying there are exceptions and that is correct. Jesus did not mean to never call any man on earth father. Abraham is not my biological father yet he is my father in the faith. Paul says he has become our father 1 Cor 4:16 and that does not put him above Christ. Paul's spiritual fatherhood come from Christ through the Gospel as does all fatherhood. Joseph being called Jesus's father did not put Joseph above Jesus.
      The Scripture in Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5 list more than 10 commandments. We list them as ten. The ten commandments have been labeled differently by different groups and all have dropped some of the Scripture. Catholics use the the commandment division done by St. Augustine. No the Catholic Church did not change the commandments or remove one. One can still look up the complete commandment in Scripture.

    • Wesley Nunez

      @William 2015 *I do NOT take everything the Bible says literally and caution others to do the same.* For example, Matthew 5:29-30 tells us to pluck out our eyes and cut off our hands if it causes us to sin. That is an exaggerated statement or claim NOT meant to be taken literally, a hyperbole. So, you can still call your biological father your father because we are suppose to honor our parents because it is a commandment from God telling us to do so. *However, in the context of Matthew chapter 23 it is warning the Disciples NOT to be like the Pharisees. When you address any man as your father, except your biological father, then you are inadvertently exalting them.* It is true that the Bible uses the word "father" to denote some responsibility or spiritual role, however, that depends on what the context of said passage is alluding to. For instance, "Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were." (Romans 4:16-17) The idea is that we receive our inheritance through faith in Jesus Christ and fulfill the Jewish Laws without needing circumcision among other things. Nowhere does it endorse me to call Abraham my actual father on earth. *The Bible never tells me to call anyone father or promote this idea.* Another passage is "For though ye have ten thousand instructers in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel." (1 Corinthians 4:15) Is the apostle Paul really my father? No, of course not. I know the verse after it, he calls Timothy his son. This means that he has taken up the responsibility of guiding those into the faith within the context of that passage. Scripture does NOT contradict scripture. *Jesus had a good reason for us NOT calling other men on this Earth our father (except your own father) to avoid placing others above Him. Also, God is our father in heaven too. The reason why I put so much emphasis on the Bible than anything else is based off this passage, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." (2 Timothy 3:16-17)* The Bible itself is a book of books collected over a period of time. These “books” were made from pieces of animal skins and papyrus. *The Bible itself does not promote the beliefs that Roman Catholics have put forth, and are NOT an inspiration from God.*
      I have other doubts to share with you regarding the Catholic faith (and much more):
      *Here are the Roman catholic 10 commandments:*
      1. I am the Lord your God: You shall not have strange Gods before me.
      2. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
      3. Remember to keep holy the Lord’s Day.
      4. Honor your father and mother.
      5. You shall not kill.
      6. You shall not commit adultery.
      7. You shall not steal.
      8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
      9. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife.
      10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods.
      *Here are the actual 10 commandments from the Bible:*
      1. I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt have no other gods before me.
      *2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.*
      3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
      4. Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy.
      5. Honor thy father and thy mother.
      6. Thou shalt not kill.
      7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
      8. Thou shalt not steal.
      9. Thou shalt not bear false witness.
      10. Thou shalt not covet.
      *My question is this: Why was 2nd commandment (Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image) from the bible NOT in the Roman Catholic's 10 commandments?*

      *Read your Bible* and stop letting them tell you about God through the Catechism or their doctrines. *Trust in Jesus Christ alone.* I used to be a Catholic too. Please read your Bible, ask your priests questions and *tell them to cite from the Bible ONLY to receive answers.*
      For example, why do we call you FATHER when the Bible tells me not to? *"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." (Matthew 23:9)* *Tell them you want an answer from the Bible ONLY to explain this.* If they cite anything else that is not from the Bible, then they are dodging the question and you are being deceived.

    Thanks, Fr. Mike. Half of my family is Protestant, so I love interdenominational dialogue! God has taught me so much through it! I want to have more dialogue with others, but I also want to make sure I’m solidly grounded in my Catholic faith. It can definitely seem like a battle at times! (Not a battle with my family members who have different beliefs lol; a spiritual battle for me to know why I believe what I believe as a young person).

      @D Burns Hey there! I got bored and was scrolling through these. The Catholic Church doesn't teach that we are justified by our works. There is nothing we could ever do to earn the grace of God. However, it is definitely good to do good works in response to the grace of God. I recently learned this from my priest in a homily, and it's actually something a lot of Catholics misunderstand. So, to recap, faith and works go together in that faith is a gift from God, and good works we do are a response to His grace in cooperation with His plan. Hope that makes sense! God's grace is so great, and there is no way that my own works could justify me. :) Praise the grace and mercy of God! As a few saints said, "All is grace." (That doesn't excuse those who willingly say "no" to God, though, and don't cooperate with His grace...just to be clear!)

      @Charles Adams You have been deceived by Protestantism. Worship however you see fit, but leave us alone. Many (including me and many Spirit filled Christians I know) have been saved through the evangelistic efforts of the Catholic faith and we do not need your Pharisaical vitriol that prefers to spew dissent and discord over rejoicing when someone is saved. You are like the Pharisees saying "but it is the sabbath!" rather than rejoicing when another is healed. May the scales fall from your eyes!
      "John spoke up, “Master, we saw a man using your name to expel demons and we stopped him because he wasn’t of our group.” Jesus said, “Don’t stop him. If he’s not an enemy, he’s an ally.” "

      Read The Bible and you will know the many many flaws in catholicism. We do not need to confess to a priest to be forgiven, but to God. We do not pray to or through anyone- when Jesus rose from the dead the veil between man and God was torn. It says to call no man father (likely meaning church leaders) and catholics call the priest father. It says nothing about a priest not being allowed to marry- it actually says that doctrines of demons will say to not be given in marriage and abstain from certain foods (catholicm and islam), it says nothing about the pope, and the church founded by peter was not catholicism but the church of the apostles- catholicism began when the romans realized they could not stop christianity so they adopted it and made it their own by adding their pagan practices. If mary was to be so revered and praised and idolized- then it would say it. Jesus says no one born of a woman was as great as John the Baptist- mary was not as great as him- and neither or them should be idolized.
      Under the vatican is a painting of lucifer and there are idols all around (likely ancient romans idols). If catholicism was the “one true church” then it would never have this- it would be destroyed immediately. Remember that ezekiel had a vision where he looked inside the temple and saw wicked abominations and leaders worshipped idols. Follow Jesus Christ, not the catholic church. Do not join denominations.

    As an Irish Catholic who turned 18, I was very close to converting to the Church of Ireland. I thought it was a welcoming church with more welcoming and Christian people. There are definitely hypocritical Catholics, but what made me stay with The Church was attending Adoration every Friday night 12am-1am. Every Friday as a young person, alone in the church, I felt the presence of Christ whilst praying in front of The Eucharist. That great spiritual experience is consolidated only through Transubstantiation

      Question of the week 35: 1/28/2023
      Hope you had a wonderful Sabbath, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Praise God and worship Him in His holy 7th day (completion of His 6 days creation). Reminding us that He is the Creator.
      Answer to Question of the week 34:
      Question was:
      Does God test our faith?
      ---------------------------------
      The answer is right in the Lord's prayer.
      >Matthew 6:13
      And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
      Bible gave us many examples that God has tested His people.
      Here are few...
      - Tree of knowledge at the garden of Eden - Adam and Eve broke 1st, 8th and 10th commandments (Stealing, Covetousness and wanted to be like God.)
      - Abraham was told to sacrifice Issac but God stopped him before it happened. - Abraham kept the 1st commandment (There is no other god...only Yahweh, God the creator)
      Abraham believed God that through Issac the promised seed (Jesus) will come. First coming of Jesus.
      - Job's faith was tested when Satan challenged God that Job would curse Him if His protection were removed from Job. Thus Satan was able to destroy everything Job had except his wife.
      >Job 1:21
      And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.
      - Daniel and Hebrew boys were tested under the reign of Babylon Empire.
      Daniel - Den of Lions (Daniel chapter 6)
      Hebrew boys - Burning fiery furnace (Daniel chapter 3)
      They rather die then obey man.
      All apostles and disciples were tested during the crucifixion of Jesus.
      We may ask "Why would God tests His people?"
      Because we have a free will. We make choices with what is in our hearts.
      Our hearts are deceitful. Is your heart truly with Him or just giving the lip service?
      >Matthew 15:8
      This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
      We will be all tested just before the great tribulation in the last days before the second coming of Jesus.
      We will be challenged to choose whom we worship. God the creator or the beast.
      >Revelation 14:7
      Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
      >Revelation 14:9
      And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
      Remember...
      >Romans 6:16
      Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
      =============================
      Question of the week:
      What is the reward when Jesus said,
      >Revelation 22:12
      And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

      @Wesley Nunez I wholly agree with you, which is why your comments are better-served towards those who broke from Christ's Church in the first place: the Protestants. God bless you

      @E *All I am saying is that we shouldn't put an emphasis on a church building or beliefs unique to certain denominations, BUT IN JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF.* It was never God's intention to divide us into different denominations. That is why He equipped His followers with the Holy Spirit. All I ask from anyone is that they focus on their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, NOT A BUILDING OR BELIEF PASSED DOWN FROM OTHER PEOPLE. Pure and simple devotion to God Himself (worshiped in Spirit and Truth). I will leave you alone then. God bless.

      @Wesley Nunez You are my friend as a fellow Christian. I see nothing in what I have said that doesn't marry up with that. I can disapprove with what you are trying to do still. Happily, Roman Catholics have more conviction in their Faith than to 'reconsider' their faith the way a Protestant seems so easily to drift from one church to another.
      I think I referenced this in another comment, my friend, but let me repeat for you: my countrymen were persecuted as far back as the 1600s to the latter 1980s for their religion. Protestants tried to convert us by way of the penal laws, which forbade Irish Catholics from having much by way of property or an ability to practise their Faith. I think that should tell you a thing or two about asking a Catholic to 'reconsider' his Religion
      I would commend your efforts, but I think they would be much better served if directed towards atheists or those who do not believe in Christ. As a Roman Catholic, I can assure you, The Church has already the path set out for me to be at One with Christ

      Hope you had a wonderful and blessed Sabbath day, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Answer to Question of the week 29:
      Question was: What is First Love in this verse?
      >Revelation 2:4
      Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
      When we first learned about our savior, Jesus, our hearts overcame with joy and happiness and could not describe the sensations we felt as we can't hardly contain them.
      With that enthusiastic emotions we want to spread the gospel of Jesus to anyone we meet and to the whole world every moment of the day.
      We are in love with Him.
      This acts of caress needs time and effort and hard work. And remembering the things Jesus spoken to us.
      As the time passes that zealousness has fizzled out and started to tip our toes back into the cares of the world.
      Are we saying ourselves this?
      >Luke 12:45-46
      45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
      46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
      Proverbs 14:12
      There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
      So be ready!
      QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
      How can we revive the feeling of First Love back again?
      FYI: Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating this Feast of the dedication.
      Evening of 2nd day, Sunday (12/18/22) to evening of Monday (12/26/22). 8 days of celebration.

      *Read your Bible* and stop letting them tell you about God through the Catechism or their doctrines. *Trust in Jesus Christ alone.* I used to be a Catholic too. Please read your Bible, ask your priests questions and *tell them to cite from the Bible ONLY to receive answers.*
      For example, why do we call you FATHER when the Bible tells me not to? *"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." (Matthew 23:9)* *Tell them you want an answer from the Bible ONLY to explain this.* If they cite anything else that is not from the Bible, then they are dodging the question and you are being deceived.

      Read The Bible and you will know the many many flaws in catholicism. We do not need to confess to a priest to be forgiven, but to God. We do not pray to or through anyone- when Jesus rose from the dead the veil between man and God was torn. It says to call no man father (likely meaning church leaders) and catholics call the priest father. It says nothing about a priest not being allowed to marry- it actually says that doctrines of demons will say to not be given in marriage and abstain from certain foods (catholicm and islam), it says nothing about the pope, and the church founded by peter was not catholicism but the church of the apostles- catholicism began when the romans realized they could not stop christianity so they adopted it and made it their own by adding their pagan practices. If mary was to be so revered and praised and idolized- then it would say it. Jesus says no one born of a woman was as great as John the Baptist- mary was not as great as him- and neither or them should be idolized.
      Under the vatican is a painting of lucifer and there are idols all around (likely ancient romans idols). If catholicism was the “one true church” then it would never have this- it would be destroyed immediately. Remember that ezekiel had a vision where he looked inside the temple and saw wicked abominations and leaders worshipped idols. Follow Jesus Christ, not the catholic church. Do not join denominations.

    Well, I am born in a Catholic family and a catholic.Actually I have many Christian friends we read Bible together and praise God. For me, whether Catholic or Christian, gather together with a humble heart, celebrating God is really important. We should learn from history that no more fighting inside between Christian or Catholic. Otherwise Satan will be smiling cause he is doing a lot of things trying to put Christians against each other. Glory to God. Peace In 2021. In the name of God. Amen.

      Gal 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
      EPH 2:8-9 (KJV) "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."
      Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
      Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
      Romans 3:9-10 "What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one"
      Romans 3:20-29 "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. But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Where is boasting then? it is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also"
      Romans 4:4-5 "Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness."
      1 Corinthians 15:1-4
      KJV
      1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
      2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
      3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
      4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

    This video showed up in my feed so I listened to it. I was raised Roman Catholic. We attended Church during the week as well so we practiced our Faith. My Dad was a lay minister and we were strongly tied to the Church. I would sit in the changing room while the Priests and lay ministers were getting ready for Mass cause my Dad was there as well, it was us 6 kids in all. I was married in the Roman Catholic Church along with three other of my siblings. As an adult, something started to happen when I attended Church around 2015-2016. I was attending Mass but when it was over, I was left dissatisfied, I wanted more. At this time, I would have gone through the daily Missal continually so I knew the context of the sermons, could memorize the entire Mass meaning the responses of the Priest and the replies of the congregation. I will go home after and continue to read the Bible, play worship music and watch other sermons online until I had my fill of the Word like an unlimited food buffet. There were certain Roman Catholic doctrines that were unbiblical to me, so I continued to struggle in Church but I continued to go because my roots were buried there and I did not want to leave. I did not want to offend my father either because he was Roman Catholic down to the cells in his body. Then one day, the Holy Spirit convicted me to be baptised as an adult, not out of necessity but as obedience to God. At first, I thought my mind was telling me this so I rejected that thought for about two years. Then my Dad died in 2018 and everything moved so quickly after. One day I fell on my knees and I cried out to God because I wanted to know the Truth in the Word. I told him I was already christened and the Church was not doing adult baptism unless you were entering the Church as a new believer and that baptism was done in Easter. Was I to lie and pretend I was a new believer and do a year long course to be baptised? When I had conversations with family and friends, the topic baptism would come up for absolutely no reason. I started to dream an image of one of my friends, two times, some times three times a week. I thought she needed prayer or counselling so I called her one day during the Covid pandemic to check in on her and she asked me if I wanted to be baptised 😳😳. I told God okay, if this is what you want me to do, I will do it because I want to be obedient to you. I want to add that all this time, gospel music played in my head like a radio while I slept, at times the music kept waking me up because it was loud.........Fast-forward to today, I teach my high school students the Word before every class. I now play the guitar and I sing on the Worship Team. I teach Vacation Bible Study and I attend Bible Study on Wednesdays. I also have worship practice on Thursdays and guitar lessons on Tuesdays. I have all the time in the World to raise my children as well, granted that I am also a full time teacher. I know this is all God's work because in all that we do, He will never encourage us to neglect our families. I am now Evangelical and I attend a full gospel Church. There is no more intercession for me through Mary or the Saints......... I intercede through the Son of God alone to my Father in Heaven. Not only have my spiritual gifts became revealed to me but the fruits of the Spirit have developed dramatically. There is a reason why Jesus passed the temples straight and went to the beach for fisherman. He wanted the simple of heart.....religion can lead to legalism. There are Roman Catholic doctrines that are unbiblical. My advice is to go into the Word of God, ask God to reveal the Truth and let the Holy Spirit be your teacher. You will see the Scripture literally rising out the Bible as the Holy Spirit gives you understanding. When you kneel in your prayer corner, you are going to feel the powerful presence of God and He will reveal everything you need to know. Play scripture in your homes during the day. During the night, pray with your children, anoint them and watch biblical cartoons with them. Sing worship with your family.......I sometimes sleep to the Psalms and Gospel. When you are spirit filled, you are a new creation in Christ. The attractions of the World are removed through your continued relationship with Jesus. I still thank the Roman Catholic Church for giving me a foundation, I still love their hymns but I left the Roman Catholic Church because how long could I remain stagnant in an environment? I was a soldier in God's army but it was time for promotion. I am now fulfilling God's purpose for me in the body of Christ. I feel the presence of God, I walk with God in all that I do now and there are no words to describe the feeling. Blessings to all here.

      Please be aware, a person must trust/believe in their heart ONLY on the following to receive the UNMERITED FREE GIFT of salvation (born again), and be forgiven of all sins (past/present/future). The gospel (good news) by which believers are saved:
      1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV) - "Christ (Jesus, God the Son who came as God in flesh) died (shed his blood) for our sins according to the Scriptures, He was Buried, and he Rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”
      God wants to Give the FREE GIFT of salvation to every person, BUT, there is ONE Condition: Trust ONLY on Jesus’ payment for all sins at the cross. Notice God describes what he did to pay for our sins, not what we do to earn salvation. This is a One Time Decision and ONE STEP. When a person trusts in their heart (Believes) ONLY on Jesus' payment for our sins at the cross, they are made Born again by God (made spiritually sinless); Forgiven of all sins-past/present/future, SAVED, and PERMANENTLY SEALED. All born again believers will leave at the Rapture.
      Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV) - “For by GRACE are ye saved through faith; and that NOT of yourselves: it is the gift of God; NOT of works, lest any man should boast.” (Faith ALONE Only on Jesus’ death (shedding of his blood), burial, resurrection ALONE, is required. GRACE means UNMERITED FREE GIFT. NO human effort or works can be involved in receiving or keeping salvation. Believing the New Testament Gospel of Salvation, plus NOTHING, results in Salvation.)
      Please be aware, Salvation is NOT received if we have any faith/trust for salvation on ANY Human Effort, such as Repenting of Sins, Confessing, Giving your Heart or Life to God, Praying, Turning from Sins, Confirmation, Asking the Lord to Come into your Heart, Verbally Calling, Loving the Lord, Following the Lord, Religious Works, Commandment Keeping, Mary, or Water Baptism, etc, etc.....
      IF we believe we are saved (made born again by God) based on faith PLUS ANY human effort, or by human effort alone, then we are Not under Grace (UNMERITED FREE GIFT), but are under the law (God’s commandments), Condemned, and Not saved.
      Romans 11:6 (KJV), “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace....”
      We Cannot be Saved with any Faith for Salvation on Water Baptism or any Works / Human Effort:
      1 Corinthians 1:17 (KJV) - “For Christ sent me NOT to BAPTIZE, but to preach the gospel; not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of NO EFFECT.”
      Faith Only on Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, not water baptism, must be the way of receiving salvation. Water baptism was for people (primarily Jewish) offered salvation and the kingdom on earth by the Gospel (good news) of the Kingdom, where a work under Old Testament law, water baptism, was required commandment keeping, which ONLY showed evidence of their saving faith.
      The thief on the cross was NOT water baptized, but he was saved. So, even when water baptism was commanded, which was under OT law, it was not required for salvation.
      We are NOT under OT law:
      Romans 10:4 (KJV), “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.”
      If we trust on any works or human effort for salvation, we will NOT be saved.
      Galatians 3:10 (KJV), “For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.”
      (We can’t continue in all things of the law (10 commandments), because we have already BROKEN the law, and are condemned by the law.)
      Galatians 5:4 (KJV), “Christ is become of NO EFFECT unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law (works); ye are fallen (separated) from grace (not saved).
      Romans 3:20 (KJV), “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight:....”:
      More Verses on HOW TO BE SAVED (BORN AGAIN):
      Acts 16:30-31(KJV) - “The Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.”
      (‘Believe’ for Salvation in the New Testament means trust in your heart only on Jesus’ (God the Son who came as God in flesh) death (shedding of his blood), burial, and resurrection.)
      Romans 3:28 (KJV) - “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law”
      Romans 4:5 (KJV), “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness”
      Once Saved Always Saved and Eternal Security for the Born Again Believer:
      We MUST Be Born Again (made permanently spiritually sinless by God) by FAITH ALONE; then we have Eternal Security, and CAN’T LOSE Salvation. Believing that a person can lose salvation means we incorrectly believe we can obtain or keep salvation, which includes leaving in the rapture, by HUMAN EFFORT. That means we approach God for salvation with faith on HUMAN EFFORT, and that means NO salvation:
      John 3:3 (KJV), “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
      Titus 3:5 (KJV), “NOT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit.”
      Ephesians 4:30 (KJV), “And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are SEALED unto the day of redemption.”
      John 6:37 (KJV), “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I WILL NO WISE CAST OUT.”
      John 10:28-29 (KJV), “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and NO MAN is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.”
      2 Corinthian 1:22 (KJV), “Who hath also Sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.”
      Jesus came as God the Son and God in flesh:

      Also you notice the person who is Roman Catholic that you were conversing with constantly said “the RC Church believes this verse to mean: x,y,z” so I guess anyone can interpret the verses anyway they want and call it doctrine based off of those comments. There will never be unity between Protestants and RC because the RC church gives itself way more authority than what it should have. God did not say that the early church at the time had the authority to interpret scripture as they see fit. There is only one way to read the scripture and that’s the correct way. It’s basically new age teaching “I believe the Bible says this so therefore it is true” If I trusted myself or some other sinful person to try to interpret scripture how they dreamed it up, I’d be full of wacky, heretical doctrines because a lot of the Bible is not so straight forward. That’s why there’s all these Cherry pickers, example : “Don’t judge” well you just skipped the context and the rest of the verse….but again somehow over time we started with Jesus having true authority to now anyone who serves in the church to have authority on what scripture says. This is also how cults are made. Big yikes.

      Hi. I hope you will accept, in genuine Christian love, this correction from the Word of God. For example, based on the Bible, I agree with Catholics agree that baptism is important, but if you say that baptism is necessary for salvation, you will pollute the message of Christ. Remember, the Apostle Paul wrote that if someone preaches a different gospel, they should be accursed.
      I hope that you consider the words of the Apostle Paul, "Whoever calls upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved." Can it get any simpler? If you call, you will be saved. The gospel of Christ is the same gospel, "Ask and you shall receive." It is not, "...ask and be baptized" to be saved. Jesus also said, "My Father will give the Holy Spirit to whoever asks of Him." Hence, by asking, you can receive the Holy Spirit, be baptized in the Holy Spirit, be born again, with the Holy Spirit bearing witness that you are saved (Romans 8.16). Jesus said, "This is eternal life, that you know God and Jesus Christ Whom He has sent." So, knowing God is eternal life and you meet Him by asking! Jesus Christ is the light of the world.

      “And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.”

      The word of GOD is the only truth. Catholic religion values tradition and superstition over the Bible. Do not be fooled.

      CATHOLICISM IS SATANISM There is one source of it all, past all of the “false gods” and all the light vs dark there is one source. The biblical Jesus did not exist. Not too many know that the Roman Empire created Christianity and the fictional personality called Jesus for political reasons. All part of The Hologram of Deception. The Council of Chalcedon introduced Serapis and Jesus in the same, artificially created spiritless creature. This creature was created in Memphis, Egypt, in 320 B.C.E. after the image of Ptolemy I. Lagi is called Soter (Savior). Does the Bible have the dates to reference? No, because it’s a story; History has dates. Is there any of the 3000 charters in the Bible in museums or have a grave site? Museums will only take Historical Facts. There is no indication in the Bible that Jesus was born on December 25. But the Solstice is facts. However, the True Christian footprint in our history is found with The Cathars, who the Roman Catholic Church murdered off during the Albigensian Crusades ordered by Pope Innocent the 3rd.
      They then hijacked Christianity and turned it into what it is today.
      The Cathars abhorred the belief that The Christ Spirit incarnated in flesh. To them, The Christ Spirit embodied all who underwent their form of baptism. They ministered to their communities through preaching and a sort of baptism: a laying on of hands called "Consolamentum" that was meant to elevate the regular Cathar to the level of perfection and allow the person to ascend to heaven or another way they put it, to escape earth which they believed was created by the god of matter- Satan. The Cathars would be considered pagans by the today's Christians, who in actuality are the ones who hold pagan beliefs that was implemented in their false religion by the Satanic Catholic Church itself.

      Read The Bible and you will know the many many flaws in catholicism. We do not need to confess to a priest to be forgiven, but to God. We do not pray to or through anyone- when Jesus rose from the dead the veil between man and God was torn. It says to call no man father (likely meaning church leaders) and catholics call the priest father. It says nothing about a priest not being allowed to marry- it actually says that doctrines of demons will say to not be given in marriage and abstain from certain foods (catholicm and islam), it says nothing about the pope, and the church founded by peter was not catholicism but the church of the apostles- catholicism began when the romans realized they could not stop christianity so they adopted it and made it their own by adding their pagan practices. If mary was to be so revered and praised and idolized- then it would say it. Jesus says no one born of a woman was as great as John the Baptist- mary was not as great as him- and neither or them should be idolized.
      Under the vatican is a painting of lucifer and there are idols all around (likely ancient romans idols). If catholicism was the “one true church” then it would never have this- it would be destroyed immediately. Remember that ezekiel had a vision where he looked inside the temple and saw wicked abominations and leaders worshipped idols. Follow Jesus Christ, not the catholic church. Do not join denominations.

      Gal 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
      EPH 2:8-9 (KJV) "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."
      Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
      Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
      Romans 3:9-10 "What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one"
      Romans 3:20-29 "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. But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Where is boasting then? it is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also"
      Romans 4:4-5 "Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness."
      1 Corinthians 15:1-4
      KJV
      1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
      2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
      3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
      4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

      Question of the week 35: 1/28/2023
      Hope you had a wonderful Sabbath, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Praise God and worship Him in His holy 7th day (completion of His 6 days creation). Reminding us that He is the Creator.
      Answer to Question of the week 34:
      Question was:
      Does God test our faith?
      ---------------------------------
      The answer is right in the Lord's prayer.
      >Matthew 6:13
      And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
      Bible gave us many examples that God has tested His people.
      Here are few...
      - Tree of knowledge at the garden of Eden - Adam and Eve broke 1st, 8th and 10th commandments (Stealing, Covetousness and wanted to be like God.)
      - Abraham was told to sacrifice Issac but God stopped him before it happened. - Abraham kept the 1st commandment (There is no other god...only Yahweh, God the creator)
      Abraham believed God that through Issac the promised seed (Jesus) will come. First coming of Jesus.
      - Job's faith was tested when Satan challenged God that Job would curse Him if His protection were removed from Job. Thus Satan was able to destroy everything Job had except his wife.
      >Job 1:21
      And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.
      - Daniel and Hebrew boys were tested under the reign of Babylon Empire.
      Daniel - Den of Lions (Daniel chapter 6)
      Hebrew boys - Burning fiery furnace (Daniel chapter 3)
      They rather die then obey man.
      All apostles and disciples were tested during the crucifixion of Jesus.
      We may ask "Why would God tests His people?"
      Because we have a free will. We make choices with what is in our hearts.
      Our hearts are deceitful. Is your heart truly with Him or just giving the lip service?
      >Matthew 15:8
      This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
      We will be all tested just before the great tribulation in the last days before the second coming of Jesus.
      We will be challenged to choose whom we worship. God the creator or the beast.
      >Revelation 14:7
      Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
      >Revelation 14:9
      And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
      Remember...
      >Romans 6:16
      Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
      =============================
      Question of the week:
      What is the reward when Jesus said,
      >Revelation 22:12
      And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

      @Joey Bag O'Donuts I know how Catholic church structured and their teaching. Man made traditions and doctrines with dead idol worship.
      Jesus did not found Catholic.
      He continued with His people, Jews/Israel, those accepted Him as their messiah they been waited since the beginning (Genesis 3:15). No more priests needed to continue sacrificial system as He is the final sacrificial Lamb.
      Done once and it seized.

      Hi Shefali it is so wonderful that you have been elected by God to be called to Him, to know Him and be saved. The bible tells us that we must be born again of the spirit to be saved and then baptised as a symbol of our faith. I recommend if you really wish to be filled with the Holy Spirit and come to see the truth of the kingdom of God to find a Pentecostal church, not a Catholic church. Jesus is the centre of our faith not a priest or the catholic pope. Start by reading the bible and praying to Jesus to be your Lord and Saviour ask Him to forgive all your sins and come into your heart. Read the bible. Start by reading the gospel of John. Then Matthew, Mark Luke Acts and so on thru the new testament
      Then read the old testament. If you wish to know what a verse means you can find extensive commentary online. You will find that Catholicism is a man made ritualistic "religion" that worships idols. We only worship God, our Lord Jesus Christ. I pray you have an infilling of the Holy Spirit and know THE TRUTH 🙏

      Question of the week 30: 12/17/2022
      Hope you had a wonderful and blessed Sabbath day, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Answer to Question of the week 29:
      Question was: What is First Love in this verse?
      >Revelation 2:4
      Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
      When we first learned about our savior, Jesus, our hearts overcame with joy and happiness and could not describe the sensations we felt as we can't hardly contain them.
      With that enthusiastic emotions we want to spread the gospel of Jesus to anyone we meet and to the whole world every moment of the day.
      We are in love with Him.
      This acts of caress needs time and effort and hard work. And remembering the things Jesus spoken to us.
      As the time passes that zealousness has fizzled out and started to tip our toes back into the cares of the world.
      Are we saying ourselves this?
      >Luke 12:45-46
      45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
      46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
      Proverbs 14:12
      There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
      So be ready!
      QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
      How can we revive the feeling of First Love back again?
      FYI: Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating this Feast of the dedication.
      Evening of 2nd day, Sunday (12/18/22) to evening of Monday (12/26/22). 8 days of celebration.

    I’m a catholic and I’m in 8th grade. I was never baptized as a baby because my mother had cancer and wanted to be there for my baptism but she sadly passed away and told my aunt to baptize me. ( my dad passed away before I was born) Because of family drama my aunt never wanted to speak to me and my guardian parents. Now I will be receiving my 3 sacraments this year😁 I go to a catholic school which has helped me understand my religion so much more.

      Question of the week 5:
      As per announcement last week, the Question of the day is now by the weekly bases.
      The answer to the question last posted on June 14th is ...
      Yes, baptism is necessary for the salvation.
      There are two types of baptism. With water and Spirit. The professed Christians need both.
      John 3:5
      Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
      John 1:33
      And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
      Jesus did no sin. But He chose to be baptized in the water in foreseeing some cannot be baptized in the water.
      There are some cases one cannot be baptized with the water such as those are on death bed but accepts Jesus as His Lord and Savior (in spirit).
      The thief on the cross; we do not know that He was baptized or not. But confess his sin and exclaim that Jesus is the Lord. (in Spirit)
      WHEN SHOULD ONE BE BAPTIZED?
      One should know whom you are baptizing into. Must be taught or having the knowledge of God.
      Matthew 28:19
      Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
      Jews already knew God, the creator and His word.
      Even to the gentiles...
      Angel was sent Philip to Ethiopian (Acts 8:26-39) to show Jesus is the messiah who Isaiah spoken of.
      Acts 8:26
      And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,
      Acts 8:34
      And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?
      Acts 8:36-37
      36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
      37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
      NOTICE that only eunuch was baptized not those servants with him.
      Acts 8:38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
      Also, the Roman centurion had knowledge of God and already received the spirit of God. (Acts chapter 10)
      Acts 10:1
      There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band,
      Acts 10:22
      And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee.
      Act 10:44
      While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.
      Today's question is:
      There is only one method of baptizing. What is that method?
      HAPPY SABBATH, everyone. Be blessed on His holy 7th day (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown).

      By GRACE only are we saved. God does not need humans help by praying with beads. By the blood of Jesus ONLY are we saved.

    Brother in Christ! :)
    I stopped on 0:37, and what catched my eyes was the phrase "that the church has the authority to teach us". Brother, honestly - this is the role and the authority of Jesus christ Himself. If He is a living Water, if He is the way the truth and the life, If He is who He claimed to be - then what may stop us from being taught directly from Him -through His Holy spirit? Thanks to our great God that He can pour out His spirit and fill heart with his presence for everyone who Has no will to continue this broken life without Him !!!!! Just seek him, and you will find, no matter what denomination you are part of (even if you are not in any of them😉🤗🤗) 💪 🙏

      Jesus talks to you through the Holy Spirit-conscience and King James-not through the church of the _Dark_ Ages and the Prince of _Darkness_ who invented it as a counterfeit form of Christianity, palming off satanic, Babylonian, pagan religion dressed up to masquerade as a Christian church. Why would you trust the authority of a church which teaches such blatant lies as Mary never lost her virginity when the Bible says quite the opposite? She lost her virginity after Jesus was born. Matthew 1:25. And Rome says that Mary was without sin but she herself rejoiced in her Saviour, and only a sinner needs one of those. Luke 1:47. (You're not saved from being immaculate.) Plus, she made a sin offering of two turtle doves, thereby acknowledging her guilt as a sinner like all the rest of us. Luke 2:21-24, Romans 3:23. If the Catholic "church" teaches you such obvious heresies, who knows what other lies they've been telling you under the guise of "Christianity"?

      Hi :)
      brother, I don't see any contradiction between the work of the apostols and the work of holy spirit in each heart that is open to God. Don't you think the apostols would be happy to see us (ordinary people) getting closer to spirtual level as theirs? They tried all of those years to lead people to christ, so that we would know Him better and privetly (yes, by "Him" I mean Jesus).
      The church is the believers, not the building that we have, not the name that we give to it, and not the leaders of it (they are part of it ).

      Question of the week 35: 1/28/2023
      Hope you had a wonderful Sabbath, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Praise God and worship Him in His holy 7th day (completion of His 6 days creation). Reminding us that He is the Creator.
      Answer to Question of the week 34:
      Question was:
      Does God test our faith?
      ---------------------------------
      The answer is right in the Lord's prayer.
      >Matthew 6:13
      And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
      Bible gave us many examples that God has tested His people.
      Here are few...
      - Tree of knowledge at the garden of Eden - Adam and Eve broke 1st, 8th and 10th commandments (Stealing, Covetousness and wanted to be like God.)
      - Abraham was told to sacrifice Issac but God stopped him before it happened. - Abraham kept the 1st commandment (There is no other god...only Yahweh, God the creator)
      Abraham believed God that through Issac the promised seed (Jesus) will come. First coming of Jesus.
      - Job's faith was tested when Satan challenged God that Job would curse Him if His protection were removed from Job. Thus Satan was able to destroy everything Job had except his wife.
      >Job 1:21
      And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.
      - Daniel and Hebrew boys were tested under the reign of Babylon Empire.
      Daniel - Den of Lions (Daniel chapter 6)
      Hebrew boys - Burning fiery furnace (Daniel chapter 3)
      They rather die then obey man.
      All apostles and disciples were tested during the crucifixion of Jesus.
      We may ask "Why would God tests His people?"
      Because we have a free will. We make choices with what is in our hearts.
      Our hearts are deceitful. Is your heart truly with Him or just giving the lip service?
      >Matthew 15:8
      This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
      We will be all tested just before the great tribulation in the last days before the second coming of Jesus.
      We will be challenged to choose whom we worship. God the creator or the beast.
      >Revelation 14:7
      Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
      >Revelation 14:9
      And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
      Remember...
      >Romans 6:16
      Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
      =============================
      Question of the week:
      What is the reward when Jesus said,
      >Revelation 22:12
      And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

    I thank the Lord for this video. I found myself asking why am I a Catholic. And then asking a deacon to be at my parish why they were catholic and I was told because of the Eucharist. Well yes, I adore the Eucharist but so does other Christian denominations. But the authoritative teaching of the gospel in the Catholic Church is why I am Catholic and will always be Catholic. And I thank the Lord that my husband is Catholic and we will raise our children, who are truly gifts from God, to be Catholic. You said it perfectly Father Mike. Jesus I Trust In You! May the Holy Spirit guide us. God, may Your will be done! Mother Mary pray for us! Amen.

      Question of the week 12:
      HAPPY SABBATH, everyone. The holy sabbath unto the Lord. (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown). Receive His blessing on His holy 7th day. (Isaiah 56:2)
      The answer to Question of the week 11 is...
      Question was:
      Can any man on earth overwrite (add or delete or change) God's word? If so, what are the consequences?
      Clear direction from God says no one can add or delete or change His word.
      >Deuteronomy 4:2
      Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.
      >Deuteronomy 12:32
      What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it
      Even in apostles' time already the false doctrine's men were seeping into Christianity.
      >Galatians 3:15
      Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.
      Consequences of anyone dare to revise the word of God will be at the last days is...
      >Revelation 22:18
      For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
      We are being judged right now according to our action.
      >Revelation 14:7
      Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
      This week's question is:
      What is speaking in tongue means to you?
      Please list the Bible verses to back your belief.

      Hi. I hope you will accept, in genuine Christian love, this correction from the Word of God. For example, based on the Bible, I agree with Catholics agree that baptism is important, but if you say that baptism is necessary for salvation, you will pollute the message of Christ. Remember, the Apostle Paul wrote that if someone preaches a different gospel, they should be accursed.
      I hope that you consider the words of the Apostle Paul, "Whoever calls upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved." Can it get any simpler? If you call, you will be saved. The gospel of Christ is the same gospel, "Ask and you shall receive." It is not, "...ask and be baptized" to be saved. Jesus also said, "My Father will give the Holy Spirit to whoever asks of Him." Hence, by asking, you can receive the Holy Spirit, be baptized in the Holy Spirit, be born again, with the Holy Spirit bearing witness that you are saved (Romans 8.16). Jesus said, "This is eternal life, that you know God and Jesus Christ Whom He has sent." So, knowing God is eternal life and you meet Him by asking! Jesus Christ is the light of the world.

      Question of the week 5:
      As per announcement last week, the Question of the day is now by the weekly bases.
      The answer to the question last posted on June 14th is ...
      Yes, baptism is necessary for the salvation.
      There are two types of baptism. With water and Spirit. The professed Christians need both.
      >John 3:5
      Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
      >John 1:33
      And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
      Jesus did no sin. But He chose to be baptized in the water in foreseeing some cannot be baptized in the water.
      There are some cases one cannot be baptized with the water such as those are on death bed but accepts Jesus as His Lord and Savior (in spirit).
      The thief on the cross; we do not know that He was baptized or not. But confess his sin and exclaim that Jesus is the Lord. (in Spirit)
      WHEN SHOULD ONE BE BAPTIZED?
      One should know whom you are baptizing into. Must be taught or having the knowledge of God.
      Matthew 28:19
      Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
      Jews already knew God, the creator and His word.
      Even to the gentiles...
      Angel was sent Philip to Ethiopian (Acts 8:26-39) to show Jesus is the messiah who Isaiah spoken of.
      >Acts 8:26
      And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,
      >Acts 8:34
      And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?
      > Acts 8:36-37
      36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
      37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
      NOTICE that only eunuch was baptized not those servants with him.
      >Acts 8:38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
      Also, the Roman centurion had knowledge of God and already received the spirit of God. (Acts chapter 10)
      Acts 10:1
      There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band,
      >Acts 10:22
      And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee.
      >Act 10:44
      While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.
      Today's question is:
      There is only one method of baptizing. What is that method?
      HAPPY SABBATH, everyone. Be blessed on His holy 7th day (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown).

      Question of the week 30: 12/17/2022
      Hope you had a wonderful and blessed Sabbath day, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Answer to Question of the week 29:
      Question was: What is First Love in this verse?
      >Revelation 2:4
      Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
      When we first learned about our savior, Jesus, our hearts overcame with joy and happiness and could not describe the sensations we felt as we can't hardly contain them.
      With that enthusiastic emotions we want to spread the gospel of Jesus to anyone we meet and to the whole world every moment of the day.
      We are in love with Him.
      This acts of caress needs time and effort and hard work. And remembering the things Jesus spoken to us.
      As the time passes that zealousness has fizzled out and started to tip our toes back into the cares of the world.
      Are we saying ourselves this?
      >Luke 12:45-46
      45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
      46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
      Proverbs 14:12
      There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
      So be ready!
      QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
      How can we revive the feeling of First Love back again?
      FYI: Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating this Feast of the dedication.
      Evening of 2nd day, Sunday (12/18/22) to evening of Monday (12/26/22). 8 days of celebration.
      >John 10:22-23
      22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.

      @Langley Believer you mean the bible that backs up the sacrament of confession and priests absolving sin through the power of Christ? Also, there is 0 way of knowing you're saved until you die, only God knows this, and you aren't God

    So i learned some reasons why not to be a Catholic, when i used to be one, for any interested Catholics.
    i had so many questions as a catholic. i couldn't get enough of the bible. When i learned about the amazing grace and mercy of Jesus, it was most profound, as i wasn't certain of whether i would make it to heaven.
    The circumcism spoken of the Mr Schmitz in the bible tells us, that it is the heart that is circumcised when we become believers.... no longer an outward physical act which doesn't necessarily change the heart... " For no one is a Jew who is merely one outwardly, nor is circumcision outward and physical. But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the HEART, by the Spirit, not by the letter (law). His praise is not from man but from God. 1 Corinthians 7:19
    Gods inspired Word IS the authority, not any church or denomination. The Catholic church has the most man-made 'authorities' ever. They have the appearance of righteousness, but the doctrines and rules made over hundreds of years are bizarre, different from different popes, burdensome stones around the neck. If questioning them, is there a biblical answer from the priest? or a church doctrinal answer? Hm.
    "The church teaches right and wrong." Yes Jesus taught us about right and wrong. i love His Word. And he said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.” Mark 7:20
    "Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world-the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions-is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever." 1 John 2:15
    "For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart." Hebrews 4:12
    Confession to the priest when Gods Words clearly says there is only one mediator, God Himself. When Jesus died, the curtain to the temple was torn in two. Only priests were allowed in temple. The torn curtain was a sign of direct access to all to our Great God and Father. "Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body,
    21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water..." Heb 19. Jesús told us how to pray, including "forgive me for my sins as I forgive those who sin against me", directly to Our Father. Yes, "confess your sins to one another" but that is one another, not the priest or the bible would say so. Plus the priests makes you do 100 hail Mary's or more depending on your sins? What? What would Jesus say about that? "For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus," 1 Tim 2:5
    Do you know what the bible says about taking communion? It could be a very bad thing to do. "Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died. But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged." 1 Cor 11:27. i was never taught this as a catholic.
    The rosary has a bizarre history. Many cults use beads. Study on this. "And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words" Matthew 6:7
    Do catholics know these commands from Jesus? i didn't. Do some know them and do them anyway?
    The pope - a representation of God? i don't think Peter or any apostle would attempt to be in such a position of pomp in an extravagant "castle" being served extravagant food and having servants to iron the robes... All the people that adore the POPE? He needs body guards? Doesn't that sound bizarre? Biblical? Where does the bible teach THIS? Churches need leaders but ... WOW. What an organization. Even with its own Vatican Bank with numerous scandals and corruption. Just doesn't sound biblical. Growing up catholic, i learned some parables in grade school. i never learned Jesus had brothers and sisters. Catholics i know are adamant that Mary and Joseph had no other children when the bible clearly states it. They get angry at the thought. We weren't told to look in the bible and read the scripture or the Psalms or Daniel or Revelations . . . once i did, i was in awe. i saw much in the catholic church that was contradictory. Jesus said, "But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9And do not call anyone on earth your father, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. 10Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Christ."
    Why did Jesus say this about His mother? Remember, Genesis and John 1 state that Jesus always existed with His Father - in the beginning. There is no "mother of God." Matthew 12 "46 While Jesus was still talking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, wanting to speak to him. 47 Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.” 48 He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” 49 Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. 50 For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
    i can't believe i went on this long. But yes. i do see the catholic church as a church of made up laws and regulations and guilt if you don't follow through. Take communion at least once a year on Easter? Hm. According to the verse above, 1 Cor 11:27+ that could be quite dangerous. Don't get me wrong, i love catholics. They love Jesus. i just think Jesus is amazing. So loving, wanting us to take our burdens to Him, to have peace, simplicity, and a relationship where we talk to each other all day long . . . no rules, no works - altho doing good comes naturally to a believer. The book of Hebrews is eye opening. Jesus has endless grace and endless mercy. Jesus is our high priest who brought us a new covenant. Hebrews 8. Fascinating. Gods blessings..

      Read The Bible and you will know the many many flaws in catholicism. We do not need to confess to a priest to be forgiven, but to God. We do not pray to or through anyone- when Jesus rose from the dead the veil between man and God was torn. It says to call no man father (likely meaning church leaders) and catholics call the priest father. It says nothing about a priest not being allowed to marry- it actually says that doctrines of demons will say to not be given in marriage and abstain from certain foods (catholicm and islam), it says nothing about the pope, and the church founded by peter was not catholicism but the church of the apostles- catholicism began when the romans realized they could not stop christianity so they adopted it and made it their own by adding their pagan practices. If mary was to be so revered and praised and idolized- then it would say it. Jesus says no one born of a woman was as great as John the Baptist- mary was not as great as him- and neither or them should be idolized.
      Under the vatican is a painting of lucifer and there are idols all around (likely ancient romans idols). If catholicism was the “one true church” then it would never have this- it would be destroyed immediately. Remember that ezekiel had a vision where he looked inside the temple and saw wicked abominations and leaders worshipped idols. Follow Jesus Christ, not the catholic church. Do not join denominations.

      Question of the week 12:
      HAPPY SABBATH, everyone. The holy sabbath unto the Lord. (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown). Receive His blessing on His holy 7th day. (Isaiah 56:2)
      The answer to Question of the week 11 is...
      Question was:
      Can any man on earth overwrite (add or delete or change) God's word? If so, what are the consequences?
      Clear direction from God says no one can add or delete or change His word.
      >Deuteronomy 4:2
      Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.
      >Deuteronomy 12:32
      What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it
      Even in apostles' time already the false doctrine's men were seeping into Christianity.
      >Galatians 3:15
      Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.
      Consequences of anyone dare to revise the word of God will be at the last days is...
      >Revelation 22:18
      For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
      We are being judged right now according to our action.
      >Revelation 14:7
      Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
      This week's question is:
      What is speaking in tongue means to you?
      Please list the Bible verses to back your belief.

      Question of the week 5:
      As per announcement last week, the Question of the day is now by the weekly bases.
      The answer to the question last posted on June 14th is ...
      Yes, baptism is necessary for the salvation.
      There are two types of baptism. With water and Spirit. The professed Christians need both.
      >John 3:5
      Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
      >John 1:33
      And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
      Jesus did no sin. But He chose to be baptized in the water in foreseeing some cannot be baptized in the water.
      There are some cases one cannot be baptized with the water such as those are on death bed but accepts Jesus as His Lord and Savior (in spirit).
      The thief on the cross; we do not know that He was baptized or not. But confess his sin and exclaim that Jesus is the Lord. (in Spirit)
      WHEN SHOULD ONE BE BAPTIZED?
      One should know whom you are baptizing into. Must be taught or having the knowledge of God.
      Matthew 28:19
      Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
      Jews already knew God, the creator and His word.
      Even to the gentiles...
      Angel was sent Philip to Ethiopian (Acts 8:26-39) to show Jesus is the messiah who Isaiah spoken of.
      >Acts 8:26
      And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,
      >Acts 8:34
      And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?
      > Acts 8:36-37
      36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
      37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
      NOTICE that only eunuch was baptized not those servants with him.
      >Acts 8:38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
      Also, the Roman centurion had knowledge of God and already received the spirit of God. (Acts chapter 10)
      Acts 10:1
      There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band,
      >Acts 10:22
      And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee.
      >Act 10:44
      While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.
      Today's question is:
      There is only one method of baptizing. What is that method?
      HAPPY SABBATH, everyone. Be blessed on His holy 7th day (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown).

      Question of the week 32: 1/7/2023
      Happy Sabbath, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Answer to Question of the week 31:
      Question was: When is God's New Year's day?
      God has established His calendar from the beginning.
      >Genesis 1:5
      And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
      >Genesis 1:14
      And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
      Months were already established.
      >Genesis 8:5
      And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.
      >Genesis 8:13
      And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
      Days are determined by the phases of the Moon cycle.
      1st day of every month begins with New moon.
      So, when is God's New Year's day? March 21 (Abib) for 2023.
      Abib (also called Nisan), an ear of corn, the month of newly-ripened grain ( Exodus 13:4; 23:15); It began about the time of the vernal equinox (marks the beginning of spring), It was called Nisan, after the Captivity ( Nehemiah 2:1).
      On the fifteenth day of the month, harvest was begun by gathering a sheaf of barley, which was offered unto the Lord on the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
      On the 3rd day of creation;
      >Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
      On the 6th day, Adam and Eve, and all the creatures that God created were able to eat the fruits, grains and nuts.
      -------------------
      When the children of Israel (People of God) were under the bondage of Egypt for 430 years, they have forgotten what was established by God.
      He reiterated the timelines according His guidelines.
      >Deuteronomy 16:1
      Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the Lord thy God: for in the month of Abib the Lord thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.
      >Exodus 12:2
      This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
      >Leviticus 23:5
      In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the Lord's passover.
      >2 Chronicles 35:1
      Moreover Josiah kept a passover unto the Lord in Jerusalem: and they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month.
      >Ezra 6:19
      And the children of the captivity kept the Passover upon the fourteenth day of the first month.
      God has set every events according to His timeline with His Calendar.
      -Seventh day Sabbath
      -Flood
      -Birth of Issac.
      -Freeing 430 years of bondage the children of Israel who dwelt in Egypt. (Exodus 12:40)
      -Feast days (pointing to Jesus).
      -70 years of Babylon captivity.
      -70 years of Daniel's prophecy.
      -Birth of Jesus.
      -Death of Jesus
      -Pentecost.
      -Gospel open to the gentiles.
      -1260 years prophecy (Under the Papal power/dark age of Bible)
      -2300 years prophecy (Cleansing of the sanctuary - began atonement of Jesus)
      Date of Day of the Lord's return was not given.
      >2 Peter 3:9
      The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
      So should we dismiss God's calendar?
      Jesus said,
      >Matthew 4:4
      Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
      As we are children of God, should we not keep all His word?
      Nevertheless, we are using secular calendar (Gregorian) in tune with the world.
      Feast of the Tabernacle remains to be observed. Will be fulfilled at the 2nd coming of Jesus.
      Also,
      >Isaiah 66:23
      And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.
      ====================================================
      Question of the week: What does it mean when Jesus said,
      >Mark 3:33
      And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?

      Question of the week 30: 12/17/2022
      Hope you had a wonderful and blessed Sabbath day, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Answer to Question of the week 29:
      Question was: What is First Love in this verse?
      >Revelation 2:4
      Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
      When we first learned about our savior, Jesus, our hearts overcame with joy and happiness and could not describe the sensations we felt as we can't hardly contain them.
      With that enthusiastic emotions we want to spread the gospel of Jesus to anyone we meet and to the whole world every moment of the day.
      We are in love with Him.
      This acts of caress needs time and effort and hard work. And remembering the things Jesus spoken to us.
      As the time passes that zealousness has fizzled out and started to tip our toes back into the cares of the world.
      Are we saying ourselves this?
      >Luke 12:45-46
      45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
      46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
      Proverbs 14:12
      There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
      So be ready!
      QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
      How can we revive the feeling of First Love back again?
      FYI: Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating this Feast of the dedication.
      Evening of 2nd day, Sunday (12/18/22) to evening of Monday (12/26/22). 8 days of celebration.

    Matthew 23:9
    King James Version
    9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

    • Bible Alone
      Bible Alone Před měsícem

      Call no man teacher.
      Third, a careful examination of the context of Matthew 23 shows that Jesus didn’t intend for his words here to be understood literally. The whole passage reads, "But you are not to be called ‘rabbi,’ for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren. And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. Neither be called ‘masters,’ for you have one master, the Christ" (Matt. 23:8-10).
      The first problem is that although Jesus seems to prohibit the use of the term "teacher," in Matthew 28:19-20, Christ himself appointed certain men to be teachers in his Church: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations . . . teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." Paul speaks of his commission as a teacher: "For this I was appointed a preacher and apostle . . . a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth" (1 Tim. 2:7); "For this gospel I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher" (2 Tim. 1:11). He also reminds us that the Church has an office of teacher: "God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers" (1 Cor. 12:28); and "his gifts were that some should be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers" (Eph. 4:11). There is no doubt that Paul was not violating Christ’s teaching in Matthew 23 by referring so often to others as "teachers."
      Fundamentalists themselves slip up on this point by calling all sorts of people "doctor," for example, medical doctors, as well as professors and scientists who have Ph.D. degrees (i.e., doctorates). What they fail to realize is that "doctor" is simply the Latin word for "teacher." Even "Mister" and "Mistress" ("Mrs.") are forms of the word "master," also mentioned by Jesus. So if his words in Matthew 23 were meant to be taken literally, Fundamentalists would be just as guilty for using the word "teacher" and "doctor" and "mister" as Catholics for saying "father." But clearly, that would be a misunderstanding of Christ’s words.
      i.) If you look at Matthew 23: 1-24, it is obviously the overall thrust of the passage is about assuming positions of authority in the Church to aggrandize one's self or stroke one's ego (the scribes and Pharisees occupying "Moses's seat" and then expecting people to call them "Rabbi", "Father", etc but doing nothing to "lift a finger" to alleviate the burden they bind on people's consciences / the obligations they impose. It is a discourse on SERVANT leadership ("The Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many") NOT a fastidious rant about religious forms of address or ecclesiastic titles.
      ii.) IF the typical Protestant interpretation of Matthew 23: 9 is correct, then it makes St. Paul a sinner and invalidates the divine inspiration of his epistles,
      "I am writing you this not to shame you, but to admonish you as my beloved children. Even if you should have countless guides to Christ, yet you do not have many fathers, for I BECAME YOUR FATHER IN CHRIST JESUS through the gospel. Therefore, I urge you, be imitators of me."
      cf. I Corinthians 4: 14-16
      Obviously St. Paul is not referring to biological paternity, but a spiritual one "through the Gospel". By preaching the Gospel to the Corinthians in his ministry, he became a FATHER to them, by their becoming "beloved children" of God. Besides this passage, Ephesians 3: 14-15 is also good,
      "For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom ALL FATHERHOOD in heaven and on earth is named,...".
      In other words, human 'fatherhood' (whether biological or spiritual) PARTICIPATES IN God's Fatherhood. At Matthew 23: 9, Jesus Christ is admonishing the scribes and Pharisees who had gotten such an inflated sense of ego that they believed, because they sat on "Moses's seat" deciding matters by interpreting Tanakh / the "Old Testament" and applying it to specific cases brought to them by the People of God, that they were CHANGING clear prescriptions laid down in Torah (e. g. setting aside the commandment to 'Honor father and mother" by a child claiming the support they were obligated to give to their parents they would give to "God" because they decided it was a higher purpose, etc) and substituting their man made rules, AS IF they themselves were the "Father" / YHWH.
      The passage is not about a literalist use of a title or form of address ("father") but about servant leadership. And when their fastidious Protestant interpretation so OBVIOUSLY contradicts I Corinthians 4: 14-16 where the Apostles St. Paul calls himself "father" by analogy to those to whom he preached the Gospel, you can be sure their interpretation is wrong because it sets two separate passages of divinely inspired sacred Scripture at odds with one another

    You know I keep struggling with my faith because I do disagree with certain things that the Catholic Church teaches. Yet, I keep seeing things and problems with other churches and for some reason I keep coming back to these videos. I keep coming back to the contemplation of should I be or not be a Catholic. I seriously don’t know why. I grew up actually believing the Catholic Church was wrong and I was very comfortable with that. Yet here I am again. This is probably the third or fourth time I’ve watched this video over the years. I have actually met with a priest and have asked questions and he was amazingly helpful. Honestly I feel like I am being drawn to the Catholic Church and I may just have to dive in head first with this one already. I am already in a place where I am turning my life around in so many ways that I feel like it would all be for not unless I do the same with my faith. I’m not completely convinced but I will be going to the church and discussing it with them further because literally nothing in my life is pushing me this way, or having any influence on me to do so but something about it just feels right and I seriously don’t know what but I have to know why.

      Hey, just do what you think is right. I’m a Methodist, but I love learning about the other denominations, when I do, it makes me feel like I should be understanding to what people think. There’s this CHclip channel called ten minute bible hour, and this guy has travelled to many churches to learn about their beliefs of Christianity, including visiting a Catholic Church and talking to one of their priests. In it, he listened and just was very respectful of learning about their beliefs and learning about the history of the church itself. So in my opinion, do what you think is right, it’s all anyone can do.

      Question of the week 23: 10/22/2022
      Happy Sabbath, people of God. Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      >Isaiah 56:2
      Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
      Answer to Question of the week 22:
      Question was: God gave us the guideline for dietary law - what is good for us to eat and what not to eat.
      Is God's dietary law still in effect?
      If not, please provide words from Jesus.
      Jesus said, "Man shall not live by bread alone but every word proceeded from the mouth of God." (Matthew 4:4)
      God created us in His own image. He knows our body and what is good for us to maintain and be healthy.
      Since we are the temple of God He gave us guideline what should be going into our body.
      >Leviticus 11
      1 And the Lord spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,
      2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.
      Clean beasts:
      >3 Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.
      4 Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
      5 And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
      6 And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
      7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.
      8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.
      From waters:
      >9 These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.
      10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:
      11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.
      12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.
      Birds:
      >13 And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,
      14 And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;
      15 Every raven after his kind;
      16 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind,
      17 And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,
      18 And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle,
      19 And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.
      20 All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you.
      Insects:
      >21 Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth;
      22 Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.
      >23 But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.
      24 And for these ye shall be unclean: whosoever toucheth the carcase of them shall be unclean until the even.
      >25 And whosoever beareth ought of the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.
      26 The carcases of every beast which divideth the hoof, and is not clovenfooted, nor cheweth the cud, are unclean unto you: every one that toucheth them shall be unclean.
      27 And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even.
      Contamination:
      >28 And he that beareth the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you.
      29 These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind,
      30 And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole.
      31 These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.
      32 And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even; so it shall be cleansed.
      33 And every earthen vessel, whereinto any of them falleth, whatsoever is in it shall be unclean; and ye shall break it.
      34 Of all meat which may be eaten, that on which such water cometh shall be unclean: and all drink that may be drunk in every such vessel shall be unclean.
      35 And every thing whereupon any part of their carcase falleth shall be unclean; whether it be oven, or ranges for pots, they shall be broken down: for they are unclean and shall be unclean unto you.
      36 Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is plenty of water, shall be clean: but that which toucheth their carcase shall be unclean.
      37 And if any part of their carcase fall upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it shall be clean.
      38 But if any water be put upon the seed, and any part of their carcase fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you.
      39 And if any beast, of which ye may eat, die; he that toucheth the carcase thereof shall be unclean until the even.
      40 And he that eateth of the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: he also that beareth the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.
      41 And every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten.
      Keep self clean:
      >42 Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination.
      43 Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby.
      44 For I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
      45 For I am the Lord that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.
      46 This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth:
      47 To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.
      Noah knew which of animals are clean and unclean. Clean category are for us to eat and unclean categories were created for cleansing the garbage of the earth.
      Only Clean animals can be sacrificed unto the Lord.
      So therefore people of God this application is for us also. Our hearts and bodies must stay clean in what we eat, how we think, how we act as we surrender all to Him.
      If you can control your appetite you can do all things as Christ is in you.
      Gentiles were unclean because they did not know the creator God and His laws. Gospel is open to them also.
      >Acts 10:28
      And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.

      Question of the week 21: 10/8/2022
      Happy Sabbath, people of God!
      Hope you are receiving blessings on His holy 7th day (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown).
      The answer to Question of the week 20 is...
      Question was: What is sins of omission and how to avoid them?
      A sin of omission involves not doing what is right or failing to do as Jesus instructed.
      Refusing to share Christ and gospel with others, neglecting to care for those in need, and avoiding praying for or correcting others are all examples of sins of omission.
      Examples from Jesus...
      >Matthew 25:42-43
      42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
      43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
      >Luke 10:30-35
      30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
      31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
      32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.
      33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
      34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
      35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.
      >Luke 6:9
      Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?
      Share Christ and His gospel with others.
      >Matthew 24:14
      And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
      Those don't...
      >Luke 11:52
      Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.
      Be a watchman for the wicked and the righteous...
      >Ezekiel 3:18-21
      18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
      19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
      20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
      21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.
      >Ezekiel 33:6
      But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand
      Love thy neighbor as yourself and keeping the Ten Love Commandments are the way to avoid sins of omission.
      >John 5:29
      And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
      >James 4:17
      Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
      If ye love me, keep my commandments. (John 14:15)
      This week's question is: Which of the law is nailed to the cross?
      BTW...The Feast of Tabernacle celebration starts at sundown 10/9/22 - 10/17/22.
      Remember, our home is in heaven. We are still in the wilderness.
      The Feast of Tabernacle will be fulfilled when Jesus take His sheep to His home.

      @Ken Shiloh Not by sprinkling. That is not baptism.
      Also, can infants repent and accept Jesus as their savior?

    • Ken Shiloh
      Ken Shiloh Před 4 měsíci +2

      Hi Nick. I encourage you that, if you struggle with your faith, you follow what Christ taught. Does that sound fair? First, remember that Jesus said to follow the Bible, not the traditions of men. That is, the Catholic church will want to lead and guide you. Yet, you cannot follow Christ and the Catholic church. Jesus said, "The Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth." He also said not to call anyone on earth your teacher - that is the job of the Holy Spirit!
      Consider this verse from the book of James, "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." Even a cursory reading of the book of Luke and you will see the Catholic leaders are just like the religious leaders, that is, the Pharisees, of Jesus' day. Jesus said that if your righteousness does not exceed that of the Pharisees, you will not enter heaven.
      Moreover, in Catholicism, there is no assurance of salvation. Are you going to let people who even admit they are blind, lead you? Yet, I can honestly say that, for the past 45, I have not had even one second of doubt that I know Christ and am bound for heaven - not even for a second! Yet, I am just an ordinary Christ. As it is written, I am seated in the heavenlies with Christ, filled with the Holy Spirit - Who is my guarantee of eternal life (Eph. 1.14-16) - in short, I am good friends with Jesus Christ. Have you not read, "This is eternal life, that you know God and Jesus Christ Whom He has sent"?
      That is, do not look at the Protestant or Catholic to lead you. Look to Christ. The Christian faith is simply a friendship with God, of being filled with the Holy Spirit, being born again! It is a relationship with God. Ask Him! Obey the Lord by allowing the Holy Spirit to fill you and lead you. Get to know your Bible. I recommend starting with the book of Luke and reading through or check out John 14 to find out what the Christian life is really like. It is not stained glass windows, rituals, and statues - I will tell you that much! Jesus Christ is the light of the world.

      Read The Bible and you will know the many many flaws in catholicism. We do not need to confess to a priest to be forgiven, but to God. We do not pray to or through anyone- when Jesus rose from the dead the veil between man and God was torn. It says to call no man father (likely meaning church leaders) and catholics call the priest father. It says nothing about a priest not being allowed to marry- it actually says that doctrines of demons will say to not be given in marriage and abstain from certain foods (catholicm and islam), it says nothing about the pope, and the church founded by peter was not catholicism but the church of the apostles- catholicism began when the romans realized they could not stop christianity so they adopted it and made it their own by adding their pagan practices. If mary was to be so revered and praised and idolized- then it would say it. Jesus says no one born of a woman was as great as John the Baptist- mary was not as great as him- and neither or them should be idolized.
      Under the vatican is a painting of lucifer and there are idols all around (likely ancient romans idols). If catholicism was the “one true church” then it would never have this- it would be destroyed immediately. Remember that ezekiel had a vision where he looked inside the temple and saw wicked abominations and leaders worshipped idols. Follow Jesus Christ, not the catholic church. Do not join denominations.

      @Dominique Ray Question of the week 10:
      HAPPY SABBATH, everyone. The holy sabbath unto the Lord. (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown).
      The answer to Question of the week 9 is...
      Question was: What is this verse means to you?
      Matthew 4:4
      But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
      It is wonderful to see many of you have expressed your own understanding of this verse.
      We are the follower of Jesus. His word is only to our bread of life.
      >Hebrews 4:12
      For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart
      Adam and Eve took a doctrine of serpent (Satan) over the word of God. The results of their doing caused God to came in flesh and suffered, and shed His blood to die for our sins...that we deserve but He took all to Himself for love for us.
      So, shall we take His word lightly and leaning to any men's doctrines? Should we go to the original source or secondaries?
      >Job 36:12
      But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.
      Sword = The word of God.
      This week's question is:
      Can you list the doctrines and beliefs that are not in the Bible or obscured that seeped into Christians and Catholics alike?

      Question of the week 9:
      HAPPY SABBATH, everyone. The holy sabbath unto the Lord. (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown).
      The answer to Question of the week 8 is...
      Jesus healed many people with His spoken word or by touching.
      There is only one case Jesus did differently to the man born blind. (John 9)
      What did He do differently and why?
      Bible states that sin causes divers diseases to our body. Jesus healed those believers.
      Mark 5:34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole;
      Mark 10:52
      And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole.
      Luke 7:48
      And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.
      John 5:14
      Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
      Those didn't...
      Matthew 13:58
      And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
      There were two cases of blind men. One was blind by his sin and he was cured by his faith.
      Mark 10:52
      And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
      Other man was born blind.
      John 9:3
      Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
      Jesus did differently to this man than other sinners. This blind man was born without the eye sight. He was missing the part that functioning of the body.
      Scripture tells us that God made us in image of Him and with the dust of the ground.
      Genesis 2:7
      And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
      As Jesus did it in the beginning (Genesis) He formed the eye with clay (dust of the ground) and His spit (breath of life) into the blind man's eye).
      John 9:6
      When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay.
      The blind man was made whole as it was originally intended.
      This week's question is:
      What is this verse means to you?
      Matthew 4:4
      But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

    This is so inteesting because my mother and all her family were catholic but for various reasons they stopped going to the catholic church, however unfortunately most of them then didn't go to any church but it is my belief they all still held their beliefs. I was baptised into the anglican church and went to various churches throughout my life including the catholic mass sometimes even as a child. Then a few years ago through watching someone on youtube talking about Peter journey to Rome to establish the church, I began to get a revelation about the catholic church as the church, I seen the direct line from Jesus through Peter and Paul to now and basically every schism through the ages since then has come about through human vanity and pride. So I started going to mass, then I spoke to the priest and after some months of guidance I was confirmed - I did not require baptism because I had been baptised already.
    I continue to grow slowly but surely and when I now look at some of the churches I have been involved with honestly I am astounded that there are good solid bible believing people who are happy to go along with some of the nonsense that goes on particularly in certain churches I am thankfully that the scales have fallen from my eyes and I pray for those still in bondage.
    I have had so much revelation from the lord holy spirit in this and when I listen to you and other catholic teaching I am more convinced than ever I made the corect decision.
    The interesting thing is without me saying anything I believe my granddaughter is beginning a ourney of a similar revelation to mine, I hope and pray she is and reaches the same conclusion I am having no part in it though so I cannot be accused of manipulation or coercion.

      Question of the week 32: 1/7/2023
      Happy Sabbath, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Answer to Question of the week 31:
      Question was: When is God's New Year's day?
      God has established His calendar from the beginning.
      >Genesis 1:5
      And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
      >Genesis 1:14
      And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
      Months were already established.
      >Genesis 8:5
      And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.
      >Genesis 8:13
      And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
      Days are determined by the phases of the Moon cycle.
      1st day of every month begins with New moon.
      So, when is God's New Year's day? March 21 (Abib) for 2023.
      Abib (also called Nisan), an ear of corn, the month of newly-ripened grain ( Exodus 13:4; 23:15); It began about the time of the vernal equinox (marks the beginning of spring), It was called Nisan, after the Captivity ( Nehemiah 2:1).
      On the fifteenth day of the month, harvest was begun by gathering a sheaf of barley, which was offered unto the Lord on the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
      On the 3rd day of creation;
      >Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
      On the 6th day, Adam and Eve, and all the creatures that God created were able to eat the fruits, grains and nuts.
      -------------------
      When the children of Israel (People of God) were under the bondage of Egypt for 430 years, they have forgotten what was established by God.
      He reiterated the timelines according His guidelines.
      >Deuteronomy 16:1
      Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the Lord thy God: for in the month of Abib the Lord thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.
      >Exodus 12:2
      This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
      >Leviticus 23:5
      In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the Lord's passover.
      >2 Chronicles 35:1
      Moreover Josiah kept a passover unto the Lord in Jerusalem: and they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month.
      >Ezra 6:19
      And the children of the captivity kept the Passover upon the fourteenth day of the first month.
      God has set every events according to His timeline with His Calendar.
      -Seventh day Sabbath
      -Flood
      -Birth of Issac.
      -Freeing 430 years of bondage the children of Israel who dwelt in Egypt. (Exodus 12:40)
      -Feast days (pointing to Jesus).
      -70 years of Babylon captivity.
      -70 years of Daniel's prophecy.
      -Birth of Jesus.
      -Death of Jesus
      -Pentecost.
      -Gospel open to the gentiles.
      -1260 years prophecy (Under the Papal power/dark age of Bible)
      -2300 years prophecy (Cleansing of the sanctuary - began atonement of Jesus)
      Date of Day of the Lord's return was not given.
      >2 Peter 3:9
      The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
      So should we dismiss God's calendar?
      Jesus said,
      >Matthew 4:4
      Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
      As we are children of God, should we not keep all His word?
      Nevertheless, we are using secular calendar (Gregorian) in tune with the world.
      Feast of the Tabernacle remains to be observed. Will be fulfilled at the 2nd coming of Jesus.
      Also,
      >Isaiah 66:23
      And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.
      ====================================================
      Question of the week: What does it mean when Jesus said,

      And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?

    My personal beliefs aside, it is truly amazing how every religion and majority of followers are certain that their beliefs are 100% matter of fact.
    I would be lying if asked and I said it doesn’t frighten me to the core. I suppose I have a lot of work to do for my relationship with God.

      @Believe in Jesus now non believers usually just attack our beliefs in general. The KJV is a good translation I’m just suggesting you widen your study of scripture just more than one translation. Especially with over 5000 new manuscripts that have been found since the 1600’s.

      Interestingly atheists often deny the validity of the King James Bible also. Either way it is not going to sway a Christian that trusts in God's word.
      Proverbs 30:5 - Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

      @Believe in Jesus now I have. That’s why I made my suggestion. Saying the KJV is correct because it’s the most attacked is like saying Jehovah witnesses are right because their the most attacked. Lol
      A lot of the omissions are because the KJV was translated from Latin to Greek and a lot of the words translated into modern English are unnecessary to get the point across.
      A man by the name of Erasmus with lots and lots of revisions originally translated the Bible from Latin to Greek and this is here the KJV is translated from his revisions. Also Erasmus actually erred on the Greek in the book of revelation specially, the last half of it.

      I read many of the modern versions when I was a new Christian. I stick to the KJV because there are many omissions and changes in the modern versions. The KJV is the most attacked version that exists for a reason. I encourage you to research this further.
      Proverbs 30:5-6
      5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
      6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

      @Believe in Jesus now good response. Only thing is I’d widen my scripture reading a little and not be slanted on just the KJV. I’d suggest you have a many of them. NASB95, ESV, HCSB, NLT, NIV84, NIV11. Just to name a few. I know the. Critiques to each on of these different prints. But if KJV only is just ignoring the history and foundation and how the KJV came about and also all of the newer developments of found manuscripts since 1600’s.

      *Read your Bible* and stop letting them tell you about God through the Catechism or their doctrines. *Trust in Jesus Christ alone.* I used to be a Catholic too. Please read your Bible, ask your priests questions and *tell them to cite from the Bible ONLY to receive answers.*
      For example, why do we call you FATHER when the Bible tells me not to? *"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." (Matthew 23:9)* *Tell them you want an answer from the Bible ONLY to explain this.* If they cite anything else that is not from the Bible, then they are dodging the question and you are being deceived.

      ​@Frank Gordon your references: 2 Timothy 2:15 15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2nd reference: the KJV Bible is the only preserved word of God: The King James Version (KJV), also the King James Bible (KJB) and the Authorized Version, is an English translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England, which was commissioned in 1604 and published in 1611, by sponsorship of King James VI and I. please explain what you mean since there are a couple of translations and how asking God to lead you in the search for the translation that edifies you is = to You ARE NOT BORN AGAIN, that is for Israel at the second coming of Christ to this earth !! But you would have to study and read your bible to know that !! Instead you follow the traditions of men !! That discernment that you spoke of, seems to have departed from you !! SMH !!!. wow is that the answer to a suggestion to be led by the spirit of God secondly the criteria to be saved is to accept Jesus as lord and saviour through faith and the grace of God ie believe in your heart and confess with your mouth. i dont get it i know people who have studied the scripture in latin, Hebrew, Aramaic, and Koine Greek and these predate the kjv for non english speakers their translation will stem from these not the KJV but there is a level of vitriol i dont get ie SMH i thought teaching should be done with love patience and with the annointing of GOD🙂

    I'm a pretty devout Catholic, I believe in one Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, but I just wish that more Catholics would be more accepting of protestants and that more protestants would be more accepting of Catholics. Division gets us nowhere and hate is straying from Christ's intentions which are for us to love one another as he has loved us.

      Question of the week 34: 1/21/2023
      Hope you had a wonderful Sabbath, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Praise God and worship Him in His holy 7th day (completion of His 6 days creation). Reminding us that He is the Creator.
      Answer to Question of the week 33:
      Question was:
      Who is the originator of SDA (Seventh Day Adventist)?
      Hint: Genesis chapter 2 and 3.
      ------------------------------------
      As we are Christian (follower of Jesus), we must live by every word proceeth out of mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4)
      In the beginning, after 6 days of creation He created one more day to complete His work.
      Seventh Day was created...
      >Genesis 2:1-3
      1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
      2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
      3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
      As He blessed and sanctified the seventh day, it is included in His Ten Love commandments; commanding us to rest and worship on His holy 7th day.
      >Isaiah 58:13
      If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on MY HOLY DAY; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:
      --------------------------------
      Adventist...The first coming...
      The meaning of Advent (Advent comes from the Latin word meaning "coming."): Advent is a period of spiritual preparation in which many Christians make themselves ready for the coming, or birth of the Lord, Jesus Christ.
      After Adam and Eve sinned, the message of 1st coming of savior was given to Adam and Eve.
      >Genesis 3:15
      And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
      THEREFORE, JESUS IS THE ORIGINATOR OF THE SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST.
      The Patriarchs and God's children have long waited for the first coming of Jesus. They were the first Seventh Day Adventists.
      They kept the Sabbath Day while they were expecting Messiah to come.
      >John 1:41
      He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.
      >John 4:25
      The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
      ----------------------
      The second coming...
      Jesus said, He will come again...
      John 14:3
      And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
      John 14:28
      Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
      ----------------------------------
      Jesus said,
      >Matthew 12:8
      For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.
      The Seventh Day Sabbath is owned by Jesus as we are too owned by Him.
      Keeping His holy 7th day is recognizing that He is the creator as it states in His 4th commandment.
      >Exodus 20:8-11
      11 11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
      What Jesus expect of us to do on these last days? Keeping His 4th holy 7th day Sabbath commandment along with other 9 commandments and expect His return.
      >Revelation 14:7
      7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
      >Revelation 22:12
      And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
      Are we doer of His word or just giving Him the lip service?
      >Luke 6:47-48
      >47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
      48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
      Are we believers of His word or just hearer?
      >John 14:23
      Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
      -Do we believe He is the Creator? If answer is yes, then we would keep His holy 7th day Sabbath. (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown)
      Those don't...Jesus calls them evil doers.
      >Isaiah 56:2
      Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
      -Do we believe He is coming again? If answer is yes, then we are an Adventist.
      =============================
      Question of the week:
      Does God test our faith?

    • Charles Adams
      Charles Adams Před 17 dny

      Read The Bible and you will know the many many flaws in catholicism. We do not need to confess to a priest to be forgiven, but to God. We do not pray to or through anyone- when Jesus rose from the dead the veil between man and God was torn. It says to call no man father (likely meaning church leaders) and catholics call the priest father. It says nothing about a priest not being allowed to marry- it actually says that doctrines of demons will say to not be given in marriage and abstain from certain foods (catholicm and islam), it says nothing about the pope, and the church founded by peter was not catholicism but the church of the apostles- catholicism began when the romans realized they could not stop christianity so they adopted it and made it their own by adding their pagan practices. If mary was to be so revered and praised and idolized- then it would say it. Jesus says no one born of a woman was as great as John the Baptist- mary was not as great as him- and neither or them should be idolized.
      Under the vatican is a painting of lucifer and there are idols all around (likely ancient romans idols). If catholicism was the “one true church” then it would never have this- it would be destroyed immediately. Remember that ezekiel had a vision where he looked inside the temple and saw wicked abominations and leaders worshipped idols. Follow Jesus Christ, not the catholic church. Do not join denominations.

      @Anthonhy Salomone Why do I seek man's doctrine when I have all my answers from the word of God?
      Seek and find Jesus from the scripture.
      John 5:39
      Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
      As first believers did.
      Acts 17:11
      These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

      Question of the week 33: 1/14/2023
      Happy Sabbath, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Praise God and worship Him in His holy 7th day (completion of His 6 days creation). Reminding us that He is the Creator.
      Answer to Question of the week 32:
      Question was: What does it mean when Jesus said,
      >Mark 3:33
      And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?
      -----------------------------------
      Jesus said,
      >Matthew 12:47-50
      47 Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.
      48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?
      49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!
      50 For whosoever shall do the WILL of MY FATHER which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
      Why Jesus did not go and greet Mary and His brothers?
      Instead He replied with "Who is my mother....?" in front of message deliverer and to His disciples.
      Many will say...Does He not know His mother? How can He say that about his mother and His brothers?
      If we say the same thing to people around us would they take it as positive or negative? Negative.
      We are born in the flesh but must take on the spirit in order to inherit the kingdom of God.
      >1 Corinthians 15:50
      Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
      We must look deep into the meaning of His word.
      >50 For whosoever shall do the WILL of MY FATHER which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.
      Which implying Mary and His brothers were not doing the will of God, the father.
      It is a sobering thought that the one who knew Jesus is the son of God and gave birth and knew of Him and still was not doing the will of God.
      >Matthew 15:8
      This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth (flesh), and honoureth me with their lips (flesh); but their heart (spirit) is far from me.lips (flesh) but heart (spirit) is far from me.
      >Luke 6:46
      And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
      -----------------------------------------
      Then what about His 5th commandment?
      >Exodus 20:12
      Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
      No one comes before God.
      >Matthew 10:37
      He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
      >Luke 12:53
      The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
      >Acts 10:34
      Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
      >James 2:9
      But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
      His word is clear.
      Not by the connection with flesh but those who does will of God are His people and belong to God's family.
      >Psalm 82:6
      I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
      >John 1:12
      But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
      We claim to be the children of God but are we doing the will of God?
      >Proverbs 3:5
      Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

      Hi. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I hope you will accept, in genuine Christian love, this correction from the Word of God. For example, based on the Bible, I agree with Catholics agree that baptism is important, but if you say that baptism is necessary for salvation, you will pollute the message of Christ. Remember, the Apostle Paul wrote that if someone preaches a different gospel, they should be accursed.
      I hope that you consider the words of the Apostle Paul, "Whoever calls upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved." Can it get any simpler? If you call, you will be saved. The gospel of Christ is the same gospel, "Ask and you shall receive." It is not, "...ask and be baptized" to be saved. Jesus also said, "My Father will give the Holy Spirit to whoever asks of Him." Hence, by asking, you can receive the Holy Spirit, be baptized in the Holy Spirit, be born again, with the Holy Spirit bearing witness that you are saved (Romans 8.16). Jesus said, "This is eternal life, that you know God and Jesus Christ Whom He has sent." So, knowing God is eternal life and you meet Him by asking! Jesus Christ is the light of the world.

      Question of the week 32: 1/7/2023
      Happy Sabbath, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Answer to Question of the week 31:
      Question was: When is God's New Year's day?
      God has established His calendar from the beginning.
      >Genesis 1:5
      And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
      >Genesis 1:14
      And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
      Months were already established.
      >Genesis 8:5
      And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.
      >Genesis 8:13
      And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
      Days are determined by the phases of the Moon cycle.
      1st day of every month begins with New moon.
      So, when is God's New Year's day? March 21 (Abib) for 2023.
      Abib (also called Nisan), an ear of corn, the month of newly-ripened grain ( Exodus 13:4; 23:15); It began about the time of the vernal equinox (marks the beginning of spring), It was called Nisan, after the Captivity ( Nehemiah 2:1).
      On the fifteenth day of the month, harvest was begun by gathering a sheaf of barley, which was offered unto the Lord on the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
      On the 3rd day of creation;
      >Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
      On the 6th day, Adam and Eve, and all the creatures that God created were able to eat the fruits, grains and nuts.
      -------------------
      When the children of Israel (People of God) were under the bondage of Egypt for 430 years, they have forgotten what was established by God.
      He reiterated the timelines according His guidelines.
      >Deuteronomy 16:1
      Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the Lord thy God: for in the month of Abib the Lord thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.
      >Exodus 12:2
      This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
      >Leviticus 23:5
      In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the Lord's passover.
      >2 Chronicles 35:1
      Moreover Josiah kept a passover unto the Lord in Jerusalem: and they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month.
      >Ezra 6:19
      And the children of the captivity kept the Passover upon the fourteenth day of the first month.
      God has set every events according to His timeline with His Calendar.
      -Seventh day Sabbath
      -Flood
      -Birth of Issac.
      -Freeing 430 years of bondage the children of Israel who dwelt in Egypt. (Exodus 12:40)
      -Feast days (pointing to Jesus).
      -70 years of Babylon captivity.
      -70 years of Daniel's prophecy.
      -Birth of Jesus.
      -Death of Jesus
      -Pentecost.
      -Gospel open to the gentiles.
      -1260 years prophecy (Under the Papal power/dark age of Bible)
      -2300 years prophecy (Cleansing of the sanctuary - began atonement of Jesus)
      Date of Day of the Lord's return was not given.
      >2 Peter 3:9
      The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
      So should we dismiss God's calendar?
      Jesus said,
      >Matthew 4:4
      Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
      As we are children of God, should we not keep all His word?
      Nevertheless, we are using secular calendar (Gregorian) in tune with the world.
      Feast of the Tabernacle remains to be observed. Will be fulfilled at the 2nd coming of Jesus.
      Also,
      >Isaiah 66:23
      And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.
      ====================================================
      Question of the week: What does it mean when Jesus said,

      Holy spirit is the true interpreter between people and God.
      , any one who received grace from Jesus can read the bible with help of holy spirit, in Bible never written that, apostles (pope, father, etc,... ) are interpreter between God and people's.
      Common people please try to read Bible and understand with help of holy spirit.
      Don't pray to interpreter, pray to God for you are the son of him, he poured out his blood for you.
      I believe in Trinity, I believe that Jesus is my saviour , holy spirit is my interpreter to understand God's ways.
      Sir please don't try to separate father and their children you are doing the same by being as interpreter between them.
      Please try to pray and confess your sins before your saviour, and tell all you troubles to him, he will lift you up from that.

      Read The Bible and you will know the many many flaws in catholicism. We do not need to confess to a priest to be forgiven, but to God. We do not pray to or through anyone- when Jesus rose from the dead the veil between man and God was torn. It says to call no man father (likely meaning church leaders) and catholics call the priest father. It says nothing about a priest not being allowed to marry- it actually says that doctrines of demons will say to not be given in marriage and abstain from certain foods (catholicm and islam), it says nothing about the pope, and the church founded by peter was not catholicism but the church of the apostles- catholicism began when the romans realized they could not stop christianity so they adopted it and made it their own by adding their pagan practices. If mary was to be so revered and praised and idolized- then it would say it. Jesus says no one born of a woman was as great as John the Baptist- mary was not as great as him- and neither or them should be idolized.
      Under the vatican is a painting of lucifer and there are idols all around (likely ancient romans idols). If catholicism was the “one true church” then it would never have this- it would be destroyed immediately. Remember that ezekiel had a vision where he looked inside the temple and saw wicked abominations and leaders worshipped idols. Follow Jesus Christ, not the catholic church. Do not join denominations.

      Please be aware, a person must trust/believe in their heart ONLY on the following to receive the UNMERITED FREE GIFT of salvation (born again), and be forgiven of all sins (past/present/future). The gospel (good news) by which believers are saved:
      1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV) - "Christ (Jesus, God the Son who came as God in flesh) died (shed his blood) for our sins according to the Scriptures, He was Buried, and he Rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”
      God wants to Give the FREE GIFT of salvation to every person, BUT, there is ONE Condition: Trust ONLY on Jesus’ payment for all sins at the cross. Notice God describes what he did to pay for our sins, not what we do to earn salvation. This is a One Time Decision and ONE STEP. When a person trusts in their heart (Believes) ONLY on Jesus' payment for our sins at the cross, they are made Born again by God (made spiritually sinless); Forgiven of all sins-past/present/future, SAVED, and PERMANENTLY SEALED. All born again believers will leave at the Rapture.
      Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV) - “For by GRACE are ye saved through faith; and that NOT of yourselves: it is the gift of God; NOT of works, lest any man should boast.” (Faith ALONE Only on Jesus’ death (shedding of his blood), burial, resurrection ALONE, is required. GRACE means UNMERITED FREE GIFT. NO human effort or works can be involved in receiving or keeping salvation. Believing the New Testament Gospel of Salvation, plus NOTHING, results in Salvation.)
      Please be aware, Salvation is NOT received if we have any faith/trust for salvation on ANY Human Effort, such as Repenting of Sins, Confessing, Giving your Heart or Life to God, Praying, Turning from Sins, Confirmation, Asking the Lord to Come into your Heart, Verbally Calling, Loving the Lord, Following the Lord, Religious Works, Commandment Keeping, Mary, or Water Baptism, etc, etc.....
      IF we believe we are saved (made born again by God) based on faith PLUS ANY human effort, or by human effort alone, then we are Not under Grace (UNMERITED FREE GIFT), but are under the law (God’s commandments), Condemned, and Not saved.
      Romans 11:6 (KJV), “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace....”
      We Cannot be Saved with any Faith for Salvation on Water Baptism or any Works / Human Effort:
      1 Corinthians 1:17 (KJV) - “For Christ sent me NOT to BAPTIZE, but to preach the gospel; not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of NO EFFECT.”
      Faith Only on Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, not water baptism, must be the way of receiving salvation. Water baptism was for people (primarily Jewish) offered salvation and the kingdom on earth by the Gospel (good news) of the Kingdom, where a work under Old Testament law, water baptism, was required commandment keeping, which ONLY showed evidence of their saving faith.
      The thief on the cross was NOT water baptized, but he was saved. So, even when water baptism was commanded, which was under OT law, it was not required for salvation.
      We are NOT under OT law:
      Romans 10:4 (KJV), “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.”
      If we trust on any works or human effort for salvation, we will NOT be saved.
      Galatians 3:10 (KJV), “For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.”
      (We can’t continue in all things of the law (10 commandments), because we have already BROKEN the law, and are condemned by the law.)
      Galatians 5:4 (KJV), “Christ is become of NO EFFECT unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law (works); ye are fallen (separated) from grace (not saved).
      Romans 3:20 (KJV), “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight:....”:
      More Verses on HOW TO BE SAVED (BORN AGAIN):
      Acts 16:30-31(KJV) - “The Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.”
      (‘Believe’ for Salvation in the New Testament means trust in your heart only on Jesus’ (God the Son who came as God in flesh) death (shedding of his blood), burial, and resurrection.)
      Romans 3:28 (KJV) - “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law”
      Romans 4:5 (KJV), “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness”
      Once Saved Always Saved and Eternal Security for the Born Again Believer:
      We MUST Be Born Again (made permanently spiritually sinless by God) by FAITH ALONE; then we have Eternal Security, and CAN’T LOSE Salvation. Believing that a person can lose salvation means we incorrectly believe we can obtain or keep salvation, which includes leaving in the rapture, by HUMAN EFFORT. That means we approach God for salvation with faith on HUMAN EFFORT, and that means NO salvation:
      John 3:3 (KJV), “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
      Titus 3:5 (KJV), “NOT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit.”
      Ephesians 4:30 (KJV), “And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are SEALED unto the day of redemption.”
      John 6:37 (KJV), “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I WILL NO WISE CAST OUT.”
      John 10:28-29 (KJV), “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and NO MAN is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.”
      2 Corinthian 1:22 (KJV), “Who hath also Sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.”
      Jesus came as God the Son and God in flesh:
      Isaiah 9:6 (KJV), “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God......."
      Titus 2:13 (KJV), “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.”
      Colossians 1:15 (KJV), “Jesus is the image of the invisible God......"
      1 Timothy 3:16 (KJV), “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh."

      Did you know that Heaven is a free gift from God? Billions of people go to bed every night wondering if they have been “good enough” to go to heaven. There is no need to live in fear and doubt. Jesus taught that you can “know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
      There are many passages in the Bible that teach the truth about Heaven being a free gift from God because of what Jesus did for us on the cross, not by our own good works. One of the most clear and important passages is from the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians:
      Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”
      Most people think that Heaven is a riddle which can never be solved. This is not true! The Bible is very clear about how you get to Heaven, and how it comes by faith in Jesus Christ, not by trusting is our own good works.

      Question of the day 31:
      Answer to Question of the day 30...
      What Manasseh did which was evil in the sight of the Lord?
      He rebuilt the heathen altars his father Hezekiah had destroyed-the altars of Baalim (Baal, the sun god), and of the shameful images, and of the sun, moon, and stars, and placed them in both courtyards of The Temple of God, the very Jerusalem Temple dedicated exclusively by God’s decree to God’s Name (“in Jerusalem I place my Name”).
      He burned his own sons in a sacrificial rite in the Valley of Ben Hinnom for pagan gods.
      He practiced witchcraft and fortunetelling. He held séances and consulted spirits from the underworld.
      He set a carved image, the idol which he had made, in the house of God,
      2 Chronicles chapter 33 shows us what we shouldn't do. God calls it abominations of the heathen.
      We are the temple of God and the light of the world.
      Are we guarding ourselves from doing errors as Manasseh did? Making others stumble also?
      >2 Chronicles 33:9
      So Manasseh made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to err, and to do worse than the heathen, whom the Lord had destroyed before the children of Israel.
      God takes His 2nd commandment seriously...even with expression of hate....
      >Exodus 20:4-5
      4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
      5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
      Today's question is:
      There will be pause on the Question of the day for next 15 days. Next question of the day will be posted on 6/10/2022.
      May God bless you all!

    🙌 It's true!! Hallelujah
    For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
    🙌 It is so true!! Hallelujah
    After we are saved,
    the Holy Spirit DOES begin to teach us, and reveals Truth, matching His Word to us, and gives us understanding, and gives us wisdom, and gives us the knowing ( knowledge) that we are a child of God.
    "But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him."

    • D Herpin
      D Herpin Před 13 dny

      @Wesley Nunez to protest the Catholic church is by very definition to be protestant. Just something to consider.
      However to your understanding of the ten commandments. It was the protestants who changed the ten commandments to sound more anti-Catholic (protestant) not the other way around. This is easily researchable, google Jewish, protestant, and catholic ten commandments and you will see them side by side. Jews (who predated Catholics and protestants) held the same ten commandments as the Catholics (who predated protestants) with the exception of the first and tenth commandments. This is only because the Jewish first commandment "I Am the Lord your God who has taken you out of Egypt" is not a commandment. The catholic ten commandments are identical to the Jewish ten Commandments. Still, the Catholic ten commandments start with the Jewish second commandment (the first actual command) and split the Jewish tenth into two. No graven image was never a stand-alone commandment but only part of the first "have no other Gods before me"
      Protestants have a modernist seemingly anti-catholic version of the ten commandments that were not previously held by anyone.
      Please consider if this is true and if it is what else you may have (not unlike myself) been told to make you believe in error that your catholic faith was wrong. Most all of the arguments protestants present to me I have heard and for a short time believed until I started looking at the faith in context vs the anti-Catholic agenda behind all protestant teaching. I would be glad to go through each one by one if you would like.

    • Wesley Nunez
      Wesley Nunez Před 16 dny

      @D Herpin I am not a protestant actually, but I would imagine them presenting the same argument though. *I do NOT take everything the Bible says literally and caution others to do the same.* For example, Matthew 5:29-30 tells us to pluck out our eyes and cut off our hands if it causes us to sin. That is an exaggerated statement or claim NOT meant to be taken literally, a hyperbole. So, you can still call your biological father your father because we are suppose to honor our parents because it is a commandment from God telling us to do so. *However, in the context of Matthew chapter 23 it is warning the Disciples NOT to be like the Pharisees. When you address any man as your father, except your biological father, then you are inadvertently exalting them.* It is true that the Bible uses the word "father" to denote some responsibility or spiritual role, however, that depends on what the context of said passage is alluding to. For instance, "Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were." (Romans 4:16-17) The idea is that we receive our inheritance through faith in Jesus Christ and fulfill the Jewish Laws without needing circumcision among other things. Nowhere does it endorse me to call Abraham my actual father on earth. *The Bible never tells me to call anyone father or promote this idea.* Another passage is "For though ye have ten thousand instructers in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel." (1 Corinthians 4:15) Is the apostle Paul really my father? No, of course not. I know the verse after it, he calls Timothy his son. This means that he has taken up the responsibility of guiding those into the faith within the context of that passage. Scripture does NOT contradict scripture. *Jesus had a good reason for us NOT calling other men on this Earth father (except your own father) to avoid placing others above Him. The reason why I put so much emphasis on the Bible than anything else is based off this passage, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." (2 Timothy 3:16-17)* The Bible itself is a book of books collected over a period of time. These “books” were made from pieces of animal skins and papyrus. *The Bible itself does not promote the beliefs that Roman Catholics have put forth, and are NOT an inspiration from God.*
      I have other doubts to share with you regarding the Catholic faith (and much more):
      *Here are the Roman catholic 10 commandments:*
      1. I am the Lord your God: You shall not have strange Gods before me.
      *2. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.*
      3. Remember to keep holy the Lord’s Day.
      4. Honor your father and mother.
      5. You shall not kill.
      6. You shall not commit adultery.
      7. You shall not steal.
      8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
      9. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife.
      10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods.
      *Here are the actual 10 commandments from the Bible:*
      1. I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt have no other gods before me.
      2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.
      3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
      4. Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy.
      5. Honor thy father and thy mother.
      6. Thou shalt not kill.
      7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
      8. Thou shalt not steal.
      9. Thou shalt not bear false witness.
      10. Thou shalt not covet.
      *My question is this: Why was 2nd commandment (Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image) from the bible NOT in the Roman Catholic's 10 commandments?*

    • D Herpin
      D Herpin Před 16 dny

      @Wesley Nunez the answer to the newly formed modern argument of protestants “call no man father” controversy lies in the miss interpretation of this verse by protestants. I would venture to say most protestants who present this as an argument don’t adhere to this in their own lives. That is to say most would refer to their own biological fathers as “father” or “dad”(synonymous with father). But furthermore the Bible itself does not adhere to the modern protestant interpretation of this verse. And in order to make it fit one would literally have to brake the commandment “honor your father and your mother”. Further more one would have to ignore that the New Testament repeatedly uses the term “father” with respect to biological, ancestry, and spiritual references, along with “Father” God. The only logical conclusion is the protestant interpretation of this verse is flawed, or the majority of the Bible is in error of its use of the term “father”.
      Respectfully, show me where in scripture the Bible says something has to be proven in scripture to be true, and I will then limit my responses to Bible verses. I am not being antagonistic by only offering a deferent prospective.

      *Read your Bible* and stop letting them tell you about God through the Catechism or their doctrines. *Trust in Jesus Christ alone.* I used to be a Catholic too. Please read your Bible, ask your priests questions and *tell them to cite from the Bible ONLY to receive answers.*
      For example, why do we call you FATHER when the Bible tells me not to? *"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven." (Matthew 23:9)* *Tell them you want an answer from the Bible ONLY to explain this.* If they cite anything else that is not from the Bible, then they are dodging the question and you are being deceived.

      Question of the week 21: 10/8/2022
      Happy Sabbath, people of God!
      Hope you are receiving blessings on His holy 7th day (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown).
      The answer to Question of the week 20 is...
      Question was: What is sins of omission and how to avoid them?
      A sin of omission involves not doing what is right or failing to do as Jesus instructed.
      Refusing to share Christ and gospel with others, neglecting to care for those in need, and avoiding praying for or correcting others are all examples of sins of omission.
      Examples from Jesus...
      >Matthew 25:42-43
      42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
      43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
      >Luke 10:30-35
      30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
      31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
      32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.
      33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
      34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
      35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.
      >Luke 6:9
      Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?
      Share Christ and His gospel with others.
      >Matthew 24:14
      And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
      Those don't...
      >Luke 11:52
      Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.
      Be a watchman for the wicked and the righteous...
      >Ezekiel 3:18-21
      18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
      19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
      20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
      21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.
      >Ezekiel 33:6
      But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand
      Love thy neighbor as yourself and keeping the Ten Love Commandments are the way to avoid sins of omission.
      >John 5:29
      And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
      >James 4:17
      Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
      If ye love me, keep my commandments. (John 14:15)
      This week's question is: Which of the law is nailed to the cross?
      BTW...The Feast of Tabernacle celebration starts at sundown 10/9/22 - 10/17/22.
      Remember, our home is in heaven. We are still in the wilderness.
      The Feast of Tabernacle will be fulfilled when Jesus take His sheep to His home.

      Hi. I hope you will accept, in genuine Christian love, this correction from the Word of God. For example, based on the Bible, I agree with Catholics agree that baptism is important, but if you say that baptism is necessary for salvation, you will pollute the message of Christ. Remember, the Apostle Paul wrote that if someone preaches a different gospel, they should be accursed.
      I hope that you consider the words of the Apostle Paul, "Whoever calls upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved." Can it get any simpler? If you call, you will be saved. The gospel of Christ is the same gospel, "Ask and you shall receive." It is not, "...ask and be baptized" to be saved. Jesus also said, "My Father will give the Holy Spirit to whoever asks of Him." Hence, by asking, you can receive the Holy Spirit, be baptized in the Holy Spirit, be born again, with the Holy Spirit bearing witness that you are saved (Romans 8.16). Jesus said, "This is eternal life, that you know God and Jesus Christ Whom He has sent." So, knowing God is eternal life and you meet Him by asking! Jesus Christ is the light of the world.

    • Charles Adams
      Charles Adams Před 17 dny

      Read The Bible and you will know the many many flaws in catholicism. There is no purgatory, We do not need to confess to a priest to be forgiven, but to God. We do not pray to or through anyone- when Jesus rose from the dead the veil between man and God was torn. It says to call no man father (likely meaning church leaders) and catholics call the priest father. It says nothing about a priest not being allowed to marry- it actually says that doctrines of demons will say to not be given in marriage and abstain from certain foods (catholicm and islam), it says nothing about the pope, and the church founded by peter was not catholicism but the church of the apostles- catholicism began when the romans realized they could not stop christianity so they adopted it and made it their own by adding their pagan practices. If mary was to be so revered and praised and idolized- then it would say it. Jesus says no one born of a woman was as great as John the Baptist- mary was not as great as him- and neither or them should be idolized.
      Under the vatican is a painting of lucifer and there are idols all around (likely ancient romans idols). If catholicism was the “one true church” then it would never have this- it would be destroyed immediately. Remember that ezekiel had a vision where he looked inside the temple and saw wicked abominations and leaders worshipped idols. Follow Jesus Christ, not the catholic church. Do not join denominations.

      Gal 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
      EPH 2:8-9 (KJV) "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."
      Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
      Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
      Romans 3:9-10 "What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one"
      Romans 3:20-29 "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. But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Where is boasting then? it is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also"
      Romans 4:4-5 "Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness."
      1 Corinthians 15:1-4
      KJV
      1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
      2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
      3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
      4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

      Holy spirit is the true interpreter between people and God.
      Please don't try to be yourself as a interpreter of Bible, any one who received grace from Jesus can read the bible with help of holy spirit, in Bible never written that, apostles (pope, father, etc,... ) are interpreter between God and people's.
      Common people please try to read Bible and understand with help of holy spirit.
      Don't pray to interpreter, pray to God for you are the son of him, he poured out his blood for you.
      I believe in Trinity, I believe that Jesus is my saviour , holy spirit is my interpreter to understand God's ways.
      Sir please don't try to separate father and their children you are doing the same by being as interpreter between them.
      Please try to pray and confess your sins before your saviour, and tell all you troubles to him, he will lift you up from that.

      Question of the week 30: 12/17/2022
      Hope you had a wonderful and blessed Sabbath day, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Answer to Question of the week 29:
      Question was: What is First Love in this verse?
      >Revelation 2:4
      Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
      When we first learned about our savior, Jesus, our hearts overcame with joy and happiness and could not describe the sensations we felt as we can't hardly contain them.
      With that enthusiastic emotions we want to spread the gospel of Jesus to anyone we meet and to the whole world every moment of the day.
      We are in love with Him.
      This acts of caress needs time and effort and hard work. And remembering the things Jesus spoken to us.
      As the time passes that zealousness has fizzled out and started to tip our toes back into the cares of the world.
      Are we saying ourselves this?
      >Luke 12:45-46
      45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
      46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
      Proverbs 14:12
      There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
      So be ready!
      QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
      How can we revive the feeling of First Love back again?
      FYI: Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating this Feast of the dedication.
      Evening of 2nd day, Sunday (12/18/22) to evening of Monday (12/26/22). 8 days of celebration.
      >John 10:22-23
      22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.

      Question of the week 23: 10/22/2022
      Happy Sabbath, people of God. Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      >Isaiah 56:2
      Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
      Answer to Question of the week 22:
      Question was: God gave us the guideline for dietary law - what is good for us to eat and what not to eat.
      Is God's dietary law still in effect?
      If not, please provide words from Jesus.
      Jesus said, "Man shall not live by bread alone but every word proceeded from the mouth of God." (Matthew 4:4)
      God created us in His own image. He knows our body and what is good for us to maintain and be healthy.
      Since we are the temple of God He gave us guideline what should be going into our body.
      >Leviticus 11
      1 And the Lord spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,
      2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.
      Clean beasts:
      >3 Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.
      4 Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
      5 And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
      6 And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
      7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.
      8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.
      From waters:
      >9 These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.
      10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:
      11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.
      12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.
      Birds:
      >13 And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,
      14 And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;
      15 Every raven after his kind;
      16 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind,
      17 And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,
      18 And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle,
      19 And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.
      20 All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you.
      Insects:
      >21 Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth;
      22 Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.
      >23 But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.
      24 And for these ye shall be unclean: whosoever toucheth the carcase of them shall be unclean until the even.
      >25 And whosoever beareth ought of the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.
      26 The carcases of every beast which divideth the hoof, and is not clovenfooted, nor cheweth the cud, are unclean unto you: every one that toucheth them shall be unclean.
      27 And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even.
      Contamination:
      >28 And he that beareth the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you.
      29 These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind,
      30 And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole.
      31 These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.
      32 And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even; so it shall be cleansed.
      33 And every earthen vessel, whereinto any of them falleth, whatsoever is in it shall be unclean; and ye shall break it.
      34 Of all meat which may be eaten, that on which such water cometh shall be unclean: and all drink that may be drunk in every such vessel shall be unclean.
      35 And every thing whereupon any part of their carcase falleth shall be unclean; whether it be oven, or ranges for pots, they shall be broken down: for they are unclean and shall be unclean unto you.
      36 Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is plenty of water, shall be clean: but that which toucheth their carcase shall be unclean.
      37 And if any part of their carcase fall upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it shall be clean.
      38 But if any water be put upon the seed, and any part of their carcase fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you.
      39 And if any beast, of which ye may eat, die; he that toucheth the carcase thereof shall be unclean until the even.
      40 And he that eateth of the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: he also that beareth the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.
      41 And every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten.
      Keep self clean:
      >42 Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination.
      43 Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby.
      44 For I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
      45 For I am the Lord that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.
      46 This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth:
      47 To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.
      Noah knew which of animals are clean and unclean. Clean category are for us to eat and unclean categories were created for cleansing the garbage of the earth.
      Only Clean animals can be sacrificed unto the Lord.
      So therefore people of God this application is for us also. Our hearts and bodies must stay clean in what we eat, how we think, how we act as we surrender all to Him.
      If you can control your appetite you can do all things as Christ is in you.
      Gentiles were unclean because they did not know the creator God and His laws. Gospel is open to them also.
      >Acts 10:28
      And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.
      This week's question is: When we go to heaven what would be the food for us?

    Thank you for your insights. I will say, instead of Authority, Church should be guidance, and light. I grew up in a Catholic family, school, and country, but at 25 when I definitely saw no connection to church, I called myself an atheist. A few years after a death experience, I felt the need to find a connection to spirituality. Started with Buddhism, Judaism (Far family) and as I was looking farther and farther from God, I was getting closer and closer. Then I landed in Protestantism and Christianity, and it was the first time I was learning about God and feeling a real connection. I thought, -How come I spent 25 years going to church 2-3 /month and did not learn anything about what God, Jesus and the Bible, feel as spirituality?
    As the Bible is so hard to read and interpret, Church should be guiding the people of the love, peace, forgiveness and humility teachings. But instead always made me feel like a sinner, not good enough, being punished with hard times.
    I thank God that I have open my perspective to accept and listen to other views, and this has reconcile me with God.
    From the Old Testament, is deducted that Crist is the only Perfect Being as God (or both), so every other human beings are subject to being wrong, even wrongly about the interpretation of what might be the hardest library to read. So what the Church says does not need to be right.

      Catholics are the followers of the False prophet and are litteraly doing everything it says NOT to do in Christianity. Marriage is sanctified in the bible yet you find your "holy" ones touching little boys every time you turn around because it isnt normal to be celibate. Also says not to call any man father yet what do catholics call their fleshbag "Jesus spokesperson" Father. Also says to pray in a private place, not what Catholics do, look up the Vatican Secrets and you will see tons of Satanic stuff. Confession as a Christian is done through prayer to Christ in Catholicism its through another "middleman fleshbag" in a wooden box. So VERY big differences and Evangelical Christianity and 100% faith in Christ is the key to the REAL Jesus not the bootleg version Catholics pitch you.

    In the recent past I considered myself to be spiritual but not religious. Now I'm starting to feel differently about the two and see how they go hand in hand.
    I've not always felt comfortable in most churches but I'm curious to know if a Catholic Church would be welcoming?
    Thank you for your time and patience. Many blessings.

      It has been my experience that the Catholic Church is not as “welcoming” in the sense that you won’t get mobbed by someone trying to drag you to a small group. It can even seem standoffish to some. People of all stripes show up for mass and then disappear. James Joyce once quipped about the diversity of a typical parish, “Here comes everybody!” I try to reverse the common thinking and try to concentrate on what I am bringing to the mass rather than what I expect to take away from it. God bless you on your journey!

    I've been an ex Catholic for a long time. I was brought up as a Catholic and was even sent to a Catholic school. I am grateful for the foundation but once I started to study the Bible it dawned on me the false teachings of the Roman Catholic church. For me it was nothing to do with authority as this priest so emphatically states but rather it was doctrine. To me we are saved by grace and it does not require works that need to be performed. The fundamental flaw of the Catholic church.
    My Bible teaches we are saved by grace and the faith we have in the finished work of Christ.
    RC church teaches that + works is required to be saved.
    If you believe the latter to be incorrect as well then can you call yourself a Roman Catholic?

      @Nathan Sizemore Amen, finally someone who makes sense and not try to promote a works based gospel. At the end of the day only God knows who is saved or not and trying to do works to show others who you are does not save a person. The works you do through Christ will glorify God but not things of your own effort as proof to show who you are. At the end of the day Christ and Christ alone is our Savior.

      "you will know my people by the fruit of their labor". While nothing we could ever do be worthy of God's grace, accepting Christ and God's grace will show in our efforts, works, and love. In one way or the other you will be able to tell someone is striving to love God and change their lives.

      Part 2
      *You say*
      Response to response - We love because He first loved us. In our hopeless, dirty and sinful state he loved us and whatever we do should be because He first loved us. Not because we have to or must.
      9*Response*
      While God surely loved us and yes as sinners first I am afraid you are incorrect.
      To be part of the promise he actually made not the one you invented we must love him.
      Blessed is the man who endures trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life which God has promised to those who love him. (James 1:12)
      See this is the apathy your Gospel brings, you make it unnecessary to Love God.
      What an evil fruit
      Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.
      *You will know them by their fruits.*
      Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles?
      So, every sound tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears evil fruit.
      *A sound tree cannot bear evil fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.*
      Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
      *Thus you will know them by their fruits.* (Matt 7:15-20)
      *You say*
      Response to response - I can see that there is some confusion here. When reading the Word of God we need to rightly divide the Word of God to get a clear understanding. However let me start with your first question about being saved and then continue to deliberately be disobedient and sin. Then I have to question if that person was ever saved? I see this with many of my catholic friends. They go to church and pray to Mary and act all pious in the church and then live like a devil out of church. This type of person to me is not saved. In fact we read about these type of people in front of Jesus Christ declaring about the many works they have done but Christ clearly says I never knew you. Christ didn’t say he was once known to them but now they are not. Its clear He never knew them. So these are people who are not slaves to Christ but rather slaves to their flesh and just continued in whatever sinful lifestyle they indulged in.
      *response10*
      Typical protestant attack when you cannot address the scripture given.
      I have clearly told you over and over that to be saved we must repent and live according to the teachings of Christ.
      We must turn away from the ways of the flesh yet you pretend that I have not.
      Please do not be false.
      Attribute things to me I have said not things you want to make up.
      If you think I am wrong in what I said about rom 6show me where,
      *You say*
      Response to Response - I believe I have addressed this before. If we put our trust in God and abide in him then we will bear much fruit. I want to make it clear that this is not works based salvation but rather by remaining in Christ we will be fruitful. That’s what he says. Not you must do good works to be saved. That is an incorrect understanding of scripture. Also the one who abides in Christ is the one who has truly submitted themselves to Him and knows Him as He knows them. Not the one who just verbally confesses Christ as their Lord and then continues to live a sinful life and then goes and does some good works and feels good about themselves. Good works are done by many people including atheists.
      *Response11*
      Sorry that is false.
      Jesus says we will bear much fruit if we keep his commandments and teachings
      He who has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me; and he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.” (John 14:21)
      Jesus answered him, “If a man loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. (John 14:21)
      He who does not love me does not keep my words; and the word which you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me. (John 14:23-24)
      By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be my disciples.
      As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you; abide in my love.
      If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love (John 15:8-10)
      Over and over you are denying Christ.
      *You say*
      Response to response - In Mat 25:21-46 I am certainly not accusing Him of lying. I have put my complete trust in him. However, it seems like you have put your trust in doing good works to remain in His good books. I don’t need to do that because He does it for me as I remain in Him I become His co-worker. That it also seems to me like the difference between us.
      *response12*
      No once more you do not trust the true Christ at all but one you have created,
      Jesus tells us how the Judgment will be made on who will receive eternal life yet you say not it not.
      Then the King will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ (Matt 25:34-36)
      Then he will say to those at his left hand, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ (Matt 25:41-43)
      The difference between us is that I believe in the true Christ and as such seek to do as he says so O may be a partaker in the promises he actually made.-)
      *You say*
      Response to Response -I don’t mind you calling me whatever as I know in my heart that I am right with God. Like I have stated, I already know I abide in Christ and He in me. However, it seems like that’s a question mark for you. I hope its not and if it is then I pray you ask God that He may reveal it. I will pray for you too and blessing in Christ Jesus.
      *response13*
      Knowing in your heart means nothing if it is in defiance of Gods word. (2 John 9-11)
      It suggests you follow a false spirit.
      It would seem you do not know Christ.
      And by this we may be sure that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
      He who says “I know him” but disobeys his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps his word, in him truly love for God is perfected. By this we may be sure that we are in him: he who says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked. (1 John 2:3-6)
      Please Come to the True Christ

    I just got attacked for being Catholic by my friends mom who claims to have “grew up Catholic”. She said u don’t have to confess your sins to a priest, you go straight to God”. Then she said “ purgatory doesn’t exist and we are basically believing in what Mormons believe in.” Then she claimed that it’s a blasphemy that “Catholics worship Mary”. I was like no we don’t. We honor her but we don’t worship her like she’s God. She’s like he’s you all do. I literally couldn’t talk to her. I was like “okkkkayyy” well this is awkward. 👍 it’s sad man but it’s got me studying up more so I can be a better defender for the Catholic Church. Thank God for good videos like this.

      She was right about everything. People dont read The Bible so they don’t know their own faith. There are no verses about purgatory.
      Read The Bible and you will know the many many flaws in catholicism. We do not need to confess to a priest to be forgiven, but to God. We do not pray to or through anyone- when Jesus rose from the dead the veil between man and God was torn. It says to call no man father (likely meaning church leaders) and catholics call the priest father. It says nothing about a priest not being allowed to marry- it actually says that doctrines of demons will say to not be given in marriage and abstain from certain foods (catholicm and islam), it says nothing about the pope, and the church founded by peter was not catholicism but the church of the apostles- catholicism began when the romans realized they could not stop christianity so they adopted it and made it their own by adding their pagan practices. If mary was to be so revered and praised and idolized- then it would say it. Jesus says no one born of a woman was as great as John the Baptist- mary was not as great as him- and neither or them should be idolized.
      Under the vatican is a painting of lucifer and there are idols all around (likely ancient romans idols). If catholicism was the “one true church” then it would never have this- it would be destroyed immediately. Remember that ezekiel had a vision where he looked inside the temple and saw wicked abominations and leaders worshipped idols. Follow Jesus Christ, not the catholic church. Do not join denominations.

      Come out of false church, my people. Jesus said.
      Question of the week 17:
      Happy Sabbath, people of God!
      Be bless on His holy 7th day (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown).
      The answer to Question of the week 16 is...
      Question was:
      How do you receive the seal of God or the mark of the beast?
      Only God's people will receive the seal of God.
      So who are God's people? We must go to the source...His spoken word.
      >Exodus 3:10
      Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.
      >1 Kings 6:13
      And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake my people Israel
      Who are Israel (Prince of God)?
      Jacob was deceiver and supplanter. He struggled but overcome by clung unto Jesus and did not let Him go.
      >Genesis 32:28
      And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
      God's people are Israel.
      >Matthew 15:24
      But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
      Gentiles are also being call into Israel's fold.
      >John 10:16
      And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
      God is no respecter of persons. (Romans 2:11)
      He sees our hearts and whosoever bear the fruit of Christ will stay or grafted into the good green olive tree (Israel) as literal Jews and Israel by blood can also fall off if they do not bear the good fruit of Christ.
      As converted gentiles become the spiritual children of Abraham/Israel.
      >Galatians 3:29
      And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
      Now, we have established that Israel is God's people.
      What gives sign to receive the seal of God?
      >Ezekiel 20:12
      Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the Lord that sanctify them.
      >Ezekiel 20:20
      And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the Lord your God.
      Deuteronomy 11:18
      Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.
      The sign of God and His people is the "SABBATH" His holy 7th day, 4th commandment.
      By keeping the Sabbath holy as He commanded is giving recognition and believe that He is the creator God.
      Those who have the signs in their heart and by their action will receive the seal of God in the last days.
      >Revelation 9:4
      And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
      As it happened in...
      >Ezekiel 9:4 And the Lord said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark (seal) upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.
      Sealed in your heart and by your action (Obedience).
      As same is in the 4th Sabbath commandment (Exodus 20:8-11)
      >Revelation 14:7
      Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
      Rest of those who will not received the seal of God shall receive the mark of the Beast. Please read Ezekiel chapter 8 and 9.
      Whom should we would be worshiping to?
      The God who created all things.
      Pray that we shall see His face to face and be perfect in His eyes.
      Be faithful to the end.

Nobody cares if you are one or your both just as long as you serve god and Jesus Christ as lord.

      Question of the week 21: 10/8/2022
      Happy Sabbath, people of God!
      Hope you are receiving blessings on His holy 7th day (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown).
      The answer to Question of the week 20 is...
      Question was: What is sins of omission and how to avoid them?
      A sin of omission involves not doing what is right or failing to do as Jesus instructed.
      Refusing to share Christ and gospel with others, neglecting to care for those in need, and avoiding praying for or correcting others are all examples of sins of omission.
      Examples from Jesus...
      >Matthew 25:42-43
      42 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
      43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
      >Luke 10:30-35
      30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
      31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
      32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.
      33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
      34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
      35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.
      >Luke 6:9
      Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?
      Share Christ and His gospel with others.
      >Matthew 24:14
      And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
      Those don't...
      >Luke 11:52
      Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.
      Be a watchman for the wicked and the righteous...
      >Ezekiel 3:18-21
      18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
      19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
      20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
      21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.
      >Ezekiel 33:6
      But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand
      Love thy neighbor as yourself and keeping the Ten Love Commandments are the way to avoid sins of omission.
      >John 5:29
      And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
      >James 4:17
      Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
      If ye love me, keep my commandments. (John 14:15)
      This week's question is: Which of the law is nailed to the cross?
      BTW...The Feast of Tabernacle celebration starts at sundown 10/9/22 - 10/17/22.
      Remember, our home is in heaven. We are still in the wilderness.
      The Feast of Tabernacle will be fulfilled when Jesus take His sheep to His home.

      Question of the week 19: 9/24/2022
      Happy Sabbath, people of God!
      Be bless on His holy 7th day (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown).
      The answer to Question of the week 18 is...
      Question was: Who are remnant of His people?
      First, we need to find out who are His people.
      We know that God's people are Israel (Prince of God) as we covered in Question of the day 27.
      >Genesis 32:28
      And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
      We also know that converted gentiles become the Spiritual Children of Abraham.
      >Galatians 3:29
      And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
      Second, God is no respecter of persons. (Romans 2:11).
      God sees our hearts and whosoever bear the fruit of Christ will be remained or grafted into the good olive tree (Israel) as literal Jews and Israel by blood can also fall off if they do not bear the good fruit of Christ.
      >Isaiah 10:22
      For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.
      >Romans 9:27
      Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved.
      Jesus said those who that work iniquity are not in His fold.
      >Matthew 7:21-23
      21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
      22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
      23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
      >Luke 6:46
      And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
      Thus, remnant of His people are...those who obey His voice by keeping His commandments and believe in His word.
      >Haggai 1:12
      Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of the Lord their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet, as the Lord their God had sent him, and the people did fear before the Lord.
      >Zephaniah 3:13
      The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.
      >Revelation 12:17
      And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
      This week's question is:
      What is the the difference between Faith IN Jesus and the Faith OF Jesus?

    As a young man raised Lutheran from birth, Catholicism was always seen as a taboo. I’ve never really considered it until now and this video definitely makes some good points. Will definitely be looking into Catholicism further, as it’s important to seek for truth without the weights of personal bias.

      Read The Bible and you will know the many many flaws in catholicism. We do not need to confess to a priest to be forgiven, but to God. We do not pray to or through anyone- when Jesus rose from the dead the veil between man and God was torn. It says to call no man father (likely meaning church leaders) and catholics call the priest father. It says nothing about a priest not being allowed to marry- it actually says that doctrines of demons will say to not be given in marriage and abstain from certain foods (catholicm and islam), it says nothing about the pope, and the church founded by peter was not catholicism but the church of the apostles- catholicism began when the romans realized they could not stop christianity so they adopted it and made it their own by adding their pagan practices. If mary was to be so revered and praised and idolized- then it would say it. Jesus says no one born of a woman was as great as John the Baptist- mary was not as great as him- and neither or them should be idolized.
      Under the vatican is a painting of lucifer and there are idols all around (likely ancient romans idols). If catholicism was the “one true church” then it would never have this- it would be destroyed immediately. Remember that ezekiel had a vision where he looked inside the temple and saw wicked abominations and leaders worshipped idols. Follow Jesus Christ, not the catholic church.

      Holy spirit is the true interpreter between people and God.
      Please don't try to be yourself as a interpreter of Bible, any one who received grace from Jesus can read the bible with help of holy spirit, in Bible never written that, apostles (pope, father, etc,... ) are interpreter between God and people's.
      Common people please try to read Bible and understand with help of holy spirit.
      Don't pray to interpreter, pray to God for you are the son of him, he poured out his blood for you.
      I believe in Trinity, I believe that Jesus is my saviour , holy spirit is my interpreter to understand God's ways.
      Sir please don't try to separate father and their children you are doing the same by being as interpreter between them.
      Please try to pray and confess your sins before your saviour, and tell all you troubles to him, he will lift you up from that.

    Authority was not the answer I was expecting, I thought he was going to say the Mass. The Protestant worship feels like a music concert and a lecture, albeit these things can stir up your affection for God, the Mass and especially the Eucharist seems the most significant difference between Catholics and other Christians to me and a reason to be Catholic. My two cents.

      Hi. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I hope you will accept, in genuine Christian love, this correction from the Word of God. For example, based on the Bible, I agree with Catholics agree that baptism is important, but if you say that baptism is necessary for salvation, you will pollute the message of Christ. Remember, the Apostle Paul wrote that if someone preaches a different gospel, they should be accursed.
      I hope that you consider the words of the Apostle Paul, "Whoever calls upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved." Can it get any simpler? If you call, you will be saved. The gospel of Christ is the same gospel, "Ask and you shall receive." It is not, "...ask and be baptized" to be saved. Jesus also said, "My Father will give the Holy Spirit to whoever asks of Him." Hence, by asking, you can receive the Holy Spirit, be baptized in the Holy Spirit, be born again, with the Holy Spirit bearing witness that you are saved (Romans 8.16). Jesus said, "This is eternal life, that you know God and Jesus Christ Whom He has sent." So, knowing God is eternal life and you meet Him by asking! Jesus Christ is the light of the world.

      Question of the week 30: 12/17/2022
      Hope you had a wonderful and blessed Sabbath day, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Answer to Question of the week 29:
      Question was: What is First Love in this verse?
      >Revelation 2:4
      Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
      When we first learned about our savior, Jesus, our hearts overcame with joy and happiness and could not describe the sensations we felt as we can't hardly contain them.
      With that enthusiastic emotions we want to spread the gospel of Jesus to anyone we meet and to the whole world every moment of the day.
      We are in love with Him.
      This acts of caress needs time and effort and hard work. And remembering the things Jesus spoken to us.
      As the time passes that zealousness has fizzled out and started to tip our toes back into the cares of the world.
      Are we saying ourselves this?
      >Luke 12:45-46
      45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
      46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
      Proverbs 14:12
      There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
      So be ready!
      QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
      How can we revive the feeling of First Love back again?
      FYI: Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating this Feast of the dedication.
      Evening of 2nd day, Sunday (12/18/22) to evening of Monday (12/26/22). 8 days of celebration.
      >John 10:22-23
      22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.

    First I want to say I love your talks!. I really really do. What an asset to those interested in educating themselves on the Bible. I enjoyed the Bible in a Year, especially as a Catholic the Old Testament part. I just started one of your talks about abortion and I had to shut it off. I believe you. I understand. However, it was trite. Forced confessions are a shameful shameful way to press others into and export that kind of abuse. I also find it difficult---not impossible---but difficult to have a younger(you look sort of young) man lecturing grown women. I do respect my Catholic faith, but you've exploited it. That I resent.

      Please be aware, a person must trust/believe in their heart ONLY on the following to receive the UNMERITED FREE GIFT of salvation (born again), and be forgiven of all sins (past/present/future). The gospel (good news) by which believers are saved:
      1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV) - "Christ (Jesus, God the Son who came as God in flesh) died (shed his blood) for our sins according to the Scriptures, He was Buried, and he Rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”
      God wants to Give the FREE GIFT of salvation to every person, BUT, there is ONE Condition: Trust ONLY on Jesus’ payment for all sins at the cross. Notice God describes what he did to pay for our sins, not what we do to earn salvation. This is a One Time Decision and ONE STEP. When a person trusts in their heart (Believes) ONLY on Jesus' payment for our sins at the cross, they are made Born again by God (made spiritually sinless); Forgiven of all sins-past/present/future, SAVED, and PERMANENTLY SEALED. All born again believers will leave at the Rapture.
      Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV) - “For by GRACE are ye saved through faith; and that NOT of yourselves: it is the gift of God; NOT of works, lest any man should boast.” (Faith ALONE Only on Jesus’ death (shedding of his blood), burial, resurrection ALONE, is required. GRACE means UNMERITED FREE GIFT. NO human effort or works can be involved in receiving or keeping salvation. Believing the New Testament Gospel of Salvation, plus NOTHING, results in Salvation.)
      Please be aware, Salvation is NOT received if we have any faith/trust for salvation on ANY Human Effort, such as Repenting of Sins, Confessing, Giving your Heart or Life to God, Praying, Turning from Sins, Confirmation, Asking the Lord to Come into your Heart, Verbally Calling, Loving the Lord, Following the Lord, Religious Works, Commandment Keeping, Mary, or Water Baptism, etc, etc.....
      IF we believe we are saved (made born again by God) based on faith PLUS ANY human effort, or by human effort alone, then we are Not under Grace (UNMERITED FREE GIFT), but are under the law (God’s commandments), Condemned, and Not saved.
      Romans 11:6 (KJV), “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace....”
      We Cannot be Saved with any Faith for Salvation on Water Baptism or any Works / Human Effort:
      1 Corinthians 1:17 (KJV) - “For Christ sent me NOT to BAPTIZE, but to preach the gospel; not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of NO EFFECT.”
      Faith Only on Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, not water baptism, must be the way of receiving salvation. Water baptism was for people (primarily Jewish) offered salvation and the kingdom on earth by the Gospel (good news) of the Kingdom, where a work under Old Testament law, water baptism, was required commandment keeping, which ONLY showed evidence of their saving faith.
      The thief on the cross was NOT water baptized, but he was saved. So, even when water baptism was commanded, which was under OT law, it was not required for salvation.
      We are NOT under OT law:
      Romans 10:4 (KJV), “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.”
      If we trust on any works or human effort for salvation, we will NOT be saved.
      Galatians 3:10 (KJV), “For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.”
      (We can’t continue in all things of the law (10 commandments), because we have already BROKEN the law, and are condemned by the law.)
      Galatians 5:4 (KJV), “Christ is become of NO EFFECT unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law (works); ye are fallen (separated) from grace (not saved).
      Romans 3:20 (KJV), “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight:....”:
      More Verses on HOW TO BE SAVED (BORN AGAIN):
      Acts 16:30-31(KJV) - “The Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.”
      (‘Believe’ for Salvation in the New Testament means trust in your heart only on Jesus’ (God the Son who came as God in flesh) death (shedding of his blood), burial, and resurrection.)
      Romans 3:28 (KJV) - “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law”
      Romans 4:5 (KJV), “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness”
      Once Saved Always Saved and Eternal Security for the Born Again Believer:
      We MUST Be Born Again (made permanently spiritually sinless by God) by FAITH ALONE; then we have Eternal Security, and CAN’T LOSE Salvation. Believing that a person can lose salvation means we incorrectly believe we can obtain or keep salvation, which includes leaving in the rapture, by HUMAN EFFORT. That means we approach God for salvation with faith on HUMAN EFFORT, and that means NO salvation:
      John 3:3 (KJV), “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
      Titus 3:5 (KJV), “NOT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit.”
      Ephesians 4:30 (KJV), “And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are SEALED unto the day of redemption.”
      John 6:37 (KJV), “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I WILL NO WISE CAST OUT.”
      John 10:28-29 (KJV), “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and NO MAN is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.”
      2 Corinthian 1:22 (KJV), “Who hath also Sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.”
      Jesus came as God the Son and God in flesh:
      Isaiah 9:6 (KJV), “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God......."
      Titus 2:13 (KJV), “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.”
      Colossians 1:15 (KJV), “Jesus is the image of the invisible God......"
      1 Timothy 3:16 (KJV), “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh."

    I’ll be honest here - I just need to vent. Two summers ago I was converted from agnostic (at best) by Our Blessed Mother. So, of course, joining the Catholic Church made sense. What I have come to see as the reality is that my parish (and every parish, I’m sure) works off of a hierarchy of “cliques”. Friends with the priests? Children enrolled in the Catholic school? Friends with the teachers? Great - you’re “in”. But if you’re *just* an average person, without “connections” then your calls go unreturned, your questions go unanswered, and no one cares. So someone tell me *why* even join the Catholic Church when the very people who are supposed to be in community with you, are the ones who make you feel isolated and unworthy?

      Gal 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
      EPH 2:8-9 (KJV) "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."
      Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
      Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
      Romans 3:9-10 "What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one"
      Romans 3:20-29 "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. But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Where is boasting then? it is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also"
      Romans 4:4-5 "Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness."
      1 Corinthians 15:1-4
      KJV
      1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
      2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
      3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
      4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

      Catholic Catechism Article 9 section 841, “ The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind's judge on the last day."
      John 3:36 “He who obeys THE SON hath life: He who obeys not THE SON shall not see life but the wrath of God abides on him.”
      News flash: Muslims reject Jesus Christ as the Son. How is it possible then that according to the CC that Muslims are saved and worship the same God?
      Don’t make the Word of God of no effect by your man-made traditions. Seek Christ not the RCC.

      Question of the week 32: 1/7/2023
      Happy Sabbath, Saints!
      Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
      Answer to Question of the week 31:
      Question was: When is God's New Year's day?
      God has established His calendar from the beginning.
      >Genesis 1:5
      And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
      >Genesis 1:14
      And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
      Months were already established.
      >Genesis 8:5
      And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.
      >Genesis 8:13
      And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------
      Days are determined by the phases of the Moon cycle.
      1st day of every month begins with New moon.
      So, when is God's New Year's day? March 21 (Abib) for 2023.
      Abib (also called Nisan), an ear of corn, the month of newly-ripened grain ( Exodus 13:4; 23:15); It began about the time of the vernal equinox (marks the beginning of spring), It was called Nisan, after the Captivity ( Nehemiah 2:1).
      On the fifteenth day of the month, harvest was begun by gathering a sheaf of barley, which was offered unto the Lord on the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
      On the 3rd day of creation;
      >Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
      On the 6th day, Adam and Eve, and all the creatures that God created were able to eat the fruits, grains and nuts.
      -------------------
      When the children of Israel (People of God) were under the bondage of Egypt for 430 years, they have forgotten what was established by God.
      He reiterated the timelines according His guidelines.
      >Deuteronomy 16:1
      Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the Lord thy God: for in the month of Abib the Lord thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.
      >Exodus 12:2
      This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
      >Leviticus 23:5
      In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the Lord's passover.
      >2 Chronicles 35:1
      Moreover Josiah kept a passover unto the Lord in Jerusalem: and they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month.
      >Ezra 6:19
      And the children of the captivity kept the Passover upon the fourteenth day of the first month.
      God has set every events according to His timeline with His Calendar.
      -Seventh day Sabbath
      -Flood
      -Birth of Issac.
      -Freeing 430 years of bondage the children of Israel who dwelt in Egypt. (Exodus 12:40)
      -Feast days (pointing to Jesus).
      -70 years of Babylon captivity.
      -70 years of Daniel's prophecy.
      -Birth of Jesus.
      -Death of Jesus
      -Pentecost.
      -Gospel open to the gentiles.
      -1260 years prophecy (Under the Papal power/dark age of Bible)
      -2300 years prophecy (Cleansing of the sanctuary - began atonement of Jesus)
      Date of Day of the Lord's return was not given.
      >2 Peter 3:9
      The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
      So should we dismiss God's calendar?
      Jesus said,
      >Matthew 4:4
      Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
      As we are children of God, should we not keep all His word?
      Nevertheless, we are using secular calendar (Gregorian) in tune with the world.
      Feast of the Tabernacle remains to be observed. Will be fulfilled at the 2nd coming of Jesus.
      Also,
      >Isaiah 66:23
      And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.
      ====================================================
      Question of the week: What does it mean when Jesus said,
      >Mark 3:33
      And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?

      Save time relievers, don't be deceived into this dark and apostate religious system.
      Jesus said You must be born again in John 3 and the apostle Paul said in Romans 10 verses and 13 that If you confess with your mouth the LORD JESUS and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved. And verse 13 says Whoever calls on the name of the LORD will be saved. This involves repentance of sin and belief in the Gospel found in Mark 1:15. Also check out Ephesians 2:8-9

    Baptist believer, here. Here's my background: I have nothing personal against the Catholic church. I grew up in a Christian(ish) family and attended our local Church regularly. While our official church positions on the Catholic church were decidedly protestant-leaning (Baptists did not technically emerge from the Reformation, as I understand it), I've always wished that all of God's people could fly a flag of unity under the umbrella of a Catholic Church.
    I understand the apostolic history of the Catholic Church and I've often had to tolerate the maligning of it when chatting with my sometimes-fundamentalist friends. This bugs me, since I think that there is so much fundamental theology that the RCC has in common with me - we are closer to being able to be called 'one church' then we are separated.
    But I have to agree with my Protestant friends that there are ideas floating about in official Roman Catholic theology that collude the work of the Cross with works and ideas of man. It does not sit well enough with me to accept it as mere complexity. It changes the way I understand, fundamentally, the saving work of Christ in ways that appear contrary to the Truth of Scripture.
    Father Mike, here's the thing about what you've spoken about: The authority and leadership of the big 'C' church is only as good as its faithfulness to truth. For reasons of legacy and relevance, the papacy regularly produces teachings and new understandings in 'layers' that wrap the old understandings. The more globally encompassing the church becomes on lesser matters (over generations, creating library upon library of doctrines), the more likely it is to be introducing unneccessary error, or even impediments to understanding the Gospel.
    As has been recognized by the Papicy itself (referencing here the recent apologies that have been made to various people groups by the Pope himself addressing past failures of the Church), this is by no means an impossibility.
    In fact, if the Church is endlessly producing official doctrines to abide by rather than leaving such matters to personal discernment in accordance with the Holy Scriptures, introducing some grave error into teachings seems not only imminent, but difficult to un-do.
    I do not agree that the Protestant church is fundamentally missing specificity or leadership. I have lived my life in adherence with 'Sola Scriptura' and my greatest moments of Spiritual healing and growth were actually in areas where the Bible does not have much to say. Wrestling with issues on a personal level was difficult and sometimes painful, but I firmly believe that challenging people's hearts and minds with matters where scripture is silent is actually good for introspection, true understanding and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
    I might even suggest that when opportunities for such truth-seeking is effectively replaced with the 'authoritative clarity' spoken down from Jesus Christ's supposed representative on earth, we are ceding at least some personal understanding of Scripture to arbitrary adherence. In retrospect, I don't want the Pope telling me how I am to behave or respond in some matter or another when I am adequately equipped to make that decision on my own when I seek truth under the leading of the Holy Spirit. In doing so, I am better prepared to have clarity in further matters insofar that I am willing to be reproved and corrected according to Truth.
    Reflecting on the matter, I believe that submission to Papal Authority is a deflection _away_ from personal submission to Jesus Christ my savior, and the Holy Spirit, my ambassador to God the Father. It seems so clear to me that if my way of sanctification is through the Papacy, then I am de-referencing and de-personalizing my community with God - much the same way I would de-personalize a relationship with a good friend if I only ever spoke to them through a 3rd party.
    All in all, I guess I'm saying that I do not fear the idea of being Catholic, and actually I long for Church unity. But the conditions of the Roman Catholic church stipulate that this must happen under the Papacy, and there is too much complexity and regulatory adherence that appears, at least to me, to be at times contradictory to fundamental presentations of the Gospel to make that possible.

    So I've always believed in God I was raised in a family that taught me that religious people are evil, as I grew up always still believed I don't know much about everything besides what I've read and the Bible. But I see so many people that believe in the same thing but not believing in the same thing like Christians and Catholics Orthodox All this stuff kind of confuses me. If you all believe in the same thing how can you all be so different. And I don't even know if that's true but I've seen people mad at Christians for being Catholics. I don't understand this. Anyways I just follow what's good in my heart and I have no idea where to start because of all this complications of loving the same religion.

    I pray more black people seek Catholicism due to the authority and structure
    Many missionary baptist churches teach the Bible but do not teach the accountability of sin which divides my race all around the U.S.! We hate one another and can’t come together 😔

      Read The Bible and you will know the many many flaws in catholicism. There is no purgatory, We do not need to confess to a priest to be forgiven, but to God. We do not pray to or through anyone- when Jesus rose from the dead the veil between man and God was torn. It says to call no man father (likely meaning church leaders) and catholics call the priest father. It says nothing about a priest not being allowed to marry- it actually says that doctrines of demons will say to not be given in marriage and abstain from certain foods (catholicm and islam), it says nothing about the pope, and the church founded by peter was not catholicism but the church of the apostles- catholicism began when the romans realized they could not stop christianity so they adopted it and made it their own by adding their pagan practices. If mary was to be so revered and praised and idolized- then it would say it. Jesus says no one born of a woman was as great as John the Baptist- mary was not as great as him- and neither or them should be idolized.
      Under the vatican is a painting of lucifer and there are idols all around (likely ancient romans idols). If catholicism was the “one true church” then it would never have this- it would be destroyed immediately. Remember that ezekiel had a vision where he looked inside the temple and saw wicked abominations and leaders worshipped idols. Follow Jesus Christ, not the catholic church. Do not join denominations.

      4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
      5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

      @Bri Lindsey Amen!! It’s been super important for me to continue to take up my cross daily and live as if Christ is truly walking with me at all times every step of the way. That way if family, friends, and even former church members say hurtful or judgmental things, I remember that Christ had already foretold this would happen and suffers with me as His own disciple betrayed Him as well. For the most part people see my enthusiasm and how sure I am of myself and might not get it but pray for me as I do for them. But it really is amazing how much history of Black (American) Catholicism is out there. 3 million people, majority of which are Cradle Catholics for multiple generations!
