Must join the confraternity
Hello everyone I just wanted to spread the word on the rosary confraternity. It's amazing we must bring it back.
You must pray the full rosary every week at least. To be in the confraternity and you must join online they will add you in. http://www.rosary-center.org/nroscon.htm
Basically if you pray at least one full rosary every week. Everyone who is in the confraternity prays for you as well. That's hundreds of thousands of people. Even after your death the prayers still benefit you. For example if you go to purgatory you will get out much quicker with all those people praying for you.
This is a amazing commitment to make. It will change your life trust me. Also when you die you will be really really really happy you joined it.
The confraternity was started by ST. Dominic about 500 years ago. Mary came to him and told him to start it. To get the people to stop their sinfulness and repent. It saved and helped all of the people back then. They repented and stopped there wickedness. It gave them tons of grace.
They have a book on this. It's called Secrets Of The Rosary. Everyone please join and spread this to friends and family.
Also did you know? You place a crown of roses and flowers on the head of Jesus and Mary every time you pray a rosary and those roses and flowers never wilt they last for eternity. Just a little extra incentive to join and make a commitment to the confraternity. :) It's all in the book everyone should read it. God bless I love you all <3http://www.rosary-center.org/nroscon.htm
P.S. bye bye everyone going to spend most of my time reading the bible now. Need to engrave all of it into my heart.
Let's talk about Rev 18 the whore of Babylon
Just wondering what some of you think about rev 18.
The whore of Babylon.
I say it's America and we are getting nuked some time in the future lol. If the gov starts trying to micro chip you. You better buy some plane tickets and leave the country. Papas coming home lol.
Just what I think of rev 18. How about you guys?
How do you abide in Jesus?
How do you ABIDE
"John 15:4 ABIDE
in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it ABIDE
in the Vine
; no more can ye, except ye ABIDE
in me. 5 I AM THE VINE
, ye are the branches: He that abideth
in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing."
So how do you ABIDE
in Jesus?John 6:56-69
56Those who eat
and drink my blood ABIDE
in me, and I in them. 57Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever eats me will live because of me. 58This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like that which your ancestors ate, and they died. But the one who eats this bread will live forever.” 59He said these things while he was teaching in the synagogue at Capernaum.
How can we eat his flesh and drink his blood? Jesus tell's us (Matthew 26:27-29)
Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink
from it, all of you. For this is My blood
of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say to you, I will not drink of this FRUIT OF THE VINE
from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom”
Did you miss it? Jesus said he is the VINE.
He just called the cup at the last supper the fruit of the VINE
. What is the VINE
Jesus. John 6:56-69
56Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood ABIDE
in me, and I in them.
This all links together to paint a bigger picture. Jesus is the fruit of the vine. He said himself ''I am the vine.''Why do you think Jesus refers to the cup as the fruit of the vine? He tells you eat his flesh and drink his blood to abide in him. He is in the cup at the last supper.
(Note: God4me I will not respond to anything you say until you link for me the definition. For the Aramaic word kepha and site it please. Also please don't deny Jesus spoke Aramaic. So Greek translations of the word kepha don't mean anything because Jesus didn't speak Greek when preaching. Everyone please don't respond to him until he does this.)
What was wrong with Luther....?
“Be a sinner and sin boldly!” “Let your sins be strong!” “Sin bravely!” These striking words from Martin Luther are perhaps the most frequently quoted against him, particularly by Roman Catholics. For instance, Father Patrick O’Hare stated, “If the author of such an infamous suggestion as is involved in the words ‘sin boldly’ was not a child of Satan, none ever labored so strenuously in advancing his soul-destroying principles.” More than a few Catholic authors have accused Luther of teaching a wanton lawlessness of sinning boldly. It is a common charge against him. Some argue, if justification is by faith alone, aren’t Christians free to sin as much they want? People need not concern themselves with how they live their lives; God has forgiven all their sins. It is probably the case that Luther simply invented the doctrine of justification by faith alone in order to justify his immoral life.http://tquid.sharpens.org/sin_boldly.htm
Luther really preached this? You see what happens when you 'interpret' the bible on your own. This guy started protestantism... People agree with this guys teachings... This is almost as disgusting as when Muhmmad told his soldiers it's okay to rape women captives and it's okay to do it well their husbands watch.
What is the pillar and bulwark of truth?
1 Timothy 3:15"If I am delayed, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and bulwark of the truth."
''Most Protestants believe that the Bible is the pillar and foundation of the truth, and no knowledge outside of the Bible is necessary for our salvation. But then why does Saint Paul write that the Church, and not the Bible, is the pillar and foundation of the truth? This is a powerful text that refutes the Protestant theory of sola Scriptura (Scripture alone) which erroneously holds that the Bible is the sole source of Christian truth (a theory which cannot be found anywhere in the Scriptures). Instead, Saint Paul says the Church is the pillar and bulwark of the truth.''
''This means that all the truth Jesus left us concerning faith, morality and our salvation flows from a living Church which, as we have learned, is built by Christ upon the rock of Peter and his successors. As the Catholic Church teaches, God has given us His truth in the form of the living word (written Scriptures and oral tradition) and the living teaching authority of the Church, endowed with the gift of binding and loosing. In fact, it is because the Church is the foundation of truth that we believe in the Bible. This is because the Catholic Church put the Bible together by determining which books were inspired and which books were not. The Church completed its selection of the "canon of Scripture" at the end of the fourth century. If the Catholic Church were not the pinnacle and bulwark of the truth, our belief in the Bible would be without foundation.''
''The Church's compilation of the Bible illuminates the error of sola Scriptura. As alluded to above, Protestants generally believe that God has revealed everything that is necessary for our salvation through the Bible alone. Consequently, they also believe that no knowledge found outside of the Bible regarding the Christian faith is necessary for our salvation. However, the knowledge of which Scriptures belong in the Bible and which Scriptures do not is necessary for our salvation because if we didn't know this we could be led into error. Further, this knowledge could only come from God because human beings cannot necessarily discern divine inspiration.''
''The problem, therefore, with sola Scriptura, is that the knowledge of which Scriptures are inspired and which ones are not is not contained in the Bible. The Bible does not have an "inspired table of contents." Instead, this knowledge of the canon of Scripture is a revelation from God that is necessary for our salvation, and yet came to us from outside the Bible . This revelation was given to the Holy Catholic Church, and this historical and theological fact destroys the doctrine of sola Scriptura (interestingly, while Protestants reject the authority of the Catholic Church on most matters, they accept her authority in determining the New Testament canon of Scripture; we pejoratively call such picking and choosing which doctrines to believe and which doctrines to reject "Cafeteria Catholicism").''
''If I were a Protestant trying to prove sola Scriptura, and there was a verse that said "the Bible is the pillar and bulwark of the truth," I would be proclaiming that verse from the roof tops. At the same time, if I were a Protestant, I would have to ignore 1 Timothy 3:15 to continue my protest of the Catholic faith.''http://www.scripturecatholic.com/my_top_ten.html
If the body and blood are symbolic respond to this
1 Corinthians 11:27
"Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord."
''Although Protestant churches teach that the Eucharist is just a symbol of Christ's body and blood, Paul in this verse sets forth the Catholic teaching that Christ is really, truly, and substantially present in the Eucharist. Paul confirms what Jesus taught in John's Gospel, chapter 6. If we partake of the Eucharist unworthily, we are guilty of the unthinkable crime of profaning Christ's body and blood (literally, murdering Christ). This very solemn and powerful teaching drives home the Catholic understanding of the Eucharist and leaves little, if any, room for doubt about the Real Presence.''
''An illustration of the application of this verse may be helpful. Some time ago, I was debating a Protestant gentleman at work about the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. I explained to him that in all three synoptic Gospel accounts of the Last Supper, as well as in Saint Paul's teaching which he received directly from Christ, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and said, "This is my body." In the same manner, he took wine, gave thanks, and said, "This is my blood." Matthew 26:26-28; Mark 14:22-24; Luke 22:19-20; and 1 Corinthians 11:21-25. I emphasized that Jesus did not say "This represents my body and blood," or "This is a symbol of my body and blood" (even though there were many verbs in Aramaic for “represent”). I further explained to him that God does not, and cannot, declare something to be without making it so, and challenged him to find a Scripture verse to prove me wrong. He could not.''
''Instead, the Protestant took down a picture of his wife which he had pinned up in his cubicle, gave me the picture, and said, "This is my wife." Then he asked me, "But it is not really her, is it?" He thought he had me cold.''
''I first congratulated him on having such a beautiful spouse. I then pretended to rip up the picture and, after it fell to the ground, pretended to stomp all over it. I made a bit of a scene. He looked at me with an expression of surprise and confusion. I then asked him, "Am I now guilty of profaning your wife's body and blood?"''
''After quite a pause, he responded, "No." I asked him, "Why not?" His mind was obviously reeling, but I don't think he knew where I was going. I jumped in to help him by saying, "I'll tell you why, and it's the point you just made. Because the picture of your wife is just a symbol of her, and not actually her." At this point, he agreed, but was still confused. I then added, "Being guilty of profaning your wife's body and blood by ripping up a picture of her would be an absolute outrage, because you can't profane a symbol, right?" He agreed.''
''I then drove my point home by leaning in close to him and slowly asking, "Then why does Saint Paul in 1 Corinthians 11:27 declare us to be guilty of profaning Christ's body and blood if we receive the Eucharist unworthily? That would be an absolutely unjust penalty if the Eucharist were just a symbol, wouldn't it?" After another long pause it was obvious that my Protestant brother was at a loss for words. All he could do was ask me to give back to him his wife's picture and promised me he would read the verse in its proper context and get back to me. He never did.''
Do you revere Mary the blessed mother?
''For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed''
Definition for blessed? Held in REVERENCE. So the verse means ALL GENERATIONS shall call me REVERED. So why don't protestants revere mary and just call her a regular women? It clearly states that ALL GENERATIONS will revere Mary. If protestant's don't call Mary blessed (revered one) who does? Who is the bible talking about when refering to ALL GENERATIONS will call Mary blessed? That's right it's Catholics I for one call Mary blessed several thousand times a month. Because clearly the bible is infallible and it states ALL GENERATIONS shall call her blessed. So its your choice to listen to the bible or not. You can't just call someone revered and not revere them.
Also she is your mother and she loves you. Jesus invites you to his family he shares his father and mother with you. We are a family.
''1And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a CROWN OF TWELVE STARS:''
'' 2And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.''
''5And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.''
''17And 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.''
''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.''
Ever wonder why Jesus always calls his mom women all the time? She is the new eve that's why. It points to all of the above. We are HER SEED her offspring. The crown of twelve stars represents the 12 tribes of Israel. We are all adopted children of Israel and Mary is are queen and mother.
So do you call Mary blessed and revere her?
Where in the bible does it say faith alone saves?
Faith Without Works Is Dead
14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your[a] works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?[c] 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”[d] And he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.
[b]My protestant brother's you say to me that if you have faith you will have works and that works flow from faith. Can you Explain to me why James even talks about this if its not even possible to have faith without works and he says that it is dead. Why did he even write this passage if it isn't even possible to have faith without works and why does he say it's dead. So does that mean you can believe in Jesus and proclaim he is lord (Faith) and be dead? does dead in this mean salvation? Also why is it the only place in the bible it says faith alone it's in the verse above saying faith alone is dead. no where else in the bible does it say faith alone. So faith alone saves isn't in the bible and is added by men the ALONE part was added because it says faith saves it doesn't say faith ALONE correct? Or am I wrong?
