Re: Catholics

Totally wrong. I would be surprised if this is still condoned by the RCC. I would NEVER utter such nonsense. There are misguided souls in every religion and denomination. Pope Leo XIII called Mary not only the 'Mediatrix of Divine grace', but also the 'co-Redemptress'. Look it up in Iucunda Semper ...

1) According to reliable textual criticism, Mark originally had a different ending, and Mark 16:9-20 was not in the original Bible. 2) You cannot translate 'word for word'. For instance, the Greek has a frequently used word, an , which influences the meaning of a sentence, but does not mean anything...

B.W., Might I recommend you pick up Thomas Torrence's The Doctrine of Grace in the Apostolic Fathers (Eugene, OR : Wipf and Stock, 1996. ISBN: 0965351769)? It's pretty slim, at a whopping 120 pages. There is some technical aspects to it (a bit of Greek text, as well as some other languages), but it...

Re: satan question..

And then are we also allowed - or is it a good thinbg to use satans name in vain, swear at him and mock him? just as we thank god and pray to him, can we do the opposite to satan? Sort of anti-pray to him, say how evil is he and how hated is he? Wouldnt taht bring pleasure to us ina similar way pra...

Chance of salvation? Believe in the Lord and thou shalt be saved. It is quite simple. The rest follows. No, gorging yourself with Eucharists will not increase your chance of salvation; but if you truly believe, you will participate in the ritual every time with a humble heart. It is significant, li...

Re: Common ancestor proof!

Folks, Darwinian scientists have found more and more evidence for common ancestors... Every once in a while one of these ancestors kind of blurts itself out of the pack... :roll: //www.funpic.hu/funblog/allatok/allatok_09.jpg Dogasealicus?

Sorry, my framework is still very much intact and with the research I've done, reading your sources, reading sources of my own, and so on, I'm even more secure in my positions. Thanks for the interesting discussion; not bad for a 16(?) year old. You got my age right. I see you're leaving the board....
