    actually i guess they are both the same thing, and it is the intent that matters. Dialecticism may also be used to deceive

    Don't listen to bbyrd. He is lying to you.

    The Bible is the WRITTEN Word of God. Jesus is the Word made flesh (John 1:14).
    The Bible is absolutely essential for us as Christians and not simply a book "about" God.

    To know the Word is to know Christ.
    That's why St. Jerome said:
    "Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ."

    Bbyrd espouses a lot of heresy that will lead you astray.

    Pretty funny BoL

    You think someone could lead me astray???
    LOL

    Both of you are correct.
    The bible is the written word of God.
    Jesus is the word made flesh.
    John 1:1

    Jesus is Rhema.

    YOU quote it more than anybody on this forum and you don't understand it.
    Interesting that you constantly quote the Catholic Canon of Scripture, though . . .

    I don't know you well enough to know whether or not your could be led astray.
    Your words are encouraging, though.

    As for bbryd - he doesn't believe that Jesus is the Word made flesh.
    He separates the Scriptures from Jesus and says that one is not the other.

    Jesus is the Word of God.

    I find several on this board that separate Jesus from the scriptures.
    I find some here that like to say they have the Holy Spirit and do not need the scriptures.
    I hear some here say that I'm somehow less than they are because I have knowledge and read the "book".

    Know me well enough.
    I've taught in the Catholic Church.
    I know their doctrine well.
    I used to teach from the CCC and the bible. I don't care for the CCC, BTW, except for the first 100 or so paragraphs which should be read by ALL Christians.

    bb speaks in riddles so he doesn't have to engagé anyone in a serious conversation.
    In fact, I haven't found ANYONE here who is willing to engagé in serious conversation.
    So, I don't know how you've lasted here...

    Hi RT,

    One does not have to be unmarried or be celibate to be a priest. There are some married Catholic priest, with children, so that is one SMALL thing the video got wrong.

    Furthermore it appears the process of picking Bishops, Cardinals and The Pope is a little more thourough today then what the Apostles did to replace Judas in Acts 1:23-26. If one can criticize the current Church for the way they do it now then we can surely criticize the Apostles for "casting lots" back then. I guarantee you if the Catholic Church cast lots today, they would be criticized. :)

    I am not suggesting you are criticizing the RCC by submitting the video. I am making a comment in general about the video.

    Love, Mary

    @Marymog

    One DOES have to be unmarried to be a priest.

    Do you know why some priests are married?
    Because they were of a different denomination, for instance most were Anglicans who came back to the Catholic Church.

    Some with families were NOT accepted back, and some with families were.
    It depends on the Pope. With the participation and recommendation of the Bishop.

    I'll go one step further.
    If a Deacon is unmarried when becoming a Deacon,(ordination) he cannot get married.
    If he is married and his wife dies, he cannot get remarried.

    Hi,

    You have me a bit confused. You say one DOES have to be unmarried to be a priest. Then you ask the question: Do you know why some priests are married? Those are opposite statements.

    I think what we are agreeing to is that if you are an unmarried Catholic man you can't get married and THEN become a priest. But a married man who converts from another denomination, with most of them being Anglicans, can become a priest.

    Mary

    True in some cases. The minister usually has to be part of a church that has Holy Orders before converting before he can become a catholic priest or a married priest
