    If what you say is true, speaking to somebody like that won't do any good. If people need to be shown a better way loving gentleness is the way to do it not by harsh words shout through a loud hailer.

    Hi XRose,

    SOOOO....let me see if I understand you correctly: When Jesus held up the bread/wine at the Last Supper and told the Apostles that this "IS" my body/blood he lied to them??? They were fools to believe what Jesus told them???? o_O

    Paul must have been a fool when he asked RETORICALLY: The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?

    And the writers of the Didache (written in NT times) must have been fools since they called communion "holy" and you must be baptized and have confessed your sins before you could receive it!!

    Ignatious of Antiach, who is recorded as being a student of the Apostle John must be a fool since he said that "the Eucharist is the flesh of our Savior Jesus Christ" among other re-affirming statements.

    Sooooo the people who lived during the time of Jesus and the Apostles are fools but YOU, 2000 years later, are the educated one??? YOU know the truth?

    Hi Paul,

    It is historically true that Catholic and Protestant heretics were burned at the stake and hung via rope by the Kings/Queens during that period. It is truly sad moment in English history. Catholic leaders killing Protestants. Protestant leaders killing Catholics :(

    So we should be "relieved" that as a society that neither Protestant OR Catholics kill each other for believing opposite of each other when it comes to Christian doctrine.

    Keeping it real....Mary

    Hmmmmm.....so when Jesus said "This IS my body/blood"...he started a "fairy story"?? I believe Jesus 'fairy story'. Why don't you??

    Thankfully that fairy story has lasted and has been practiced for 2,000 years. :)

    Your fairy story, that it is NOT His body/blood, started 500 years ago and is opposite of what Jesus said ;)

    Wouldn't that be what we call a miracle? I believe in miracles. Do you? :)

    At the Last Supper how did He make the bread/wine he was holding in his hand his body/blood? Do you not believe His statement was true? Was it a miracle?

    Hi Paul,

    Most Priest are very good men who have dedicated their lives to serving God, The Church and the people of their congregation. Statistically a child has a chance of being a victim of a family member or school teacher then being a victim of a Priest. Should we not allow are children alone with family members or school teachers???

    Putting aside your ridiculous statement: Who do you confess your sins to??

    Mary your evil priests lie to you:
    The Roman Catholic Church teaches that in the Eucharistic offering bread and wine are changed into the body and blood of Christ.[3] The affirmation of this doctrine was expressed, using the word "transubstantiate", by the Fourth Council of the Lateran in 1215.[4][5] It was later challenged by various 14th-century reformers, John Wycliffe in particular.[6]

    Catholic church is the whore of babylon. come out of it.

    Jane you didn't read that Wiki or any other expose of Mormon.

    you see simple factual statements as harsh shouting?
    you would have been first to nail Jesus to the cross if you had heard him call the Pharisees 'Offspring of serpents!

    Yes but if you say that to an unbeliever they wouldn't understand as it doesn't explain or tell the full story.

    The Gospel or Good News about Jesus.

    Because we are all sinners we are separated from God, but God loves us all so much that he wants us to be able to approach him without sin standing in our way.

    To achieve this he sent his only son Jesus into the world to take the punishment we deserve and atone for the sin we have in our lives. To do this Jesus died a cruel death in agony nailed to a cross.

    But he rose from the grave in victory over sin and death. Satan was defeated. He willingly gave his life for us so that we can have everlasting life. If we repent of our sin and turn to him, giving our lives to him, he will forgive us and reconcile us with God.

    Our slates will be wiped clean and we can have a brand new start and become a new creation adopted into God's family. And by the power of the Holy Spirit we can live the sort of lives that will please God and gives joy and peace.
