With joy, we celebrate the canonization of two of the seers who received the revelations. I did not orchestrate this, but Providence arranged that I celebrate the Centenary of Fatima in the Eternal City as a student at a Rome university in a course on liberation from evil through the ministry of exorcism. Enlisted by clergy into this ministry of mercy, I am receiving continuing education together with students mostly clergy and some lay assistants , representatives of thirteen countries, gathered to learn more about the task and responsibility of the hard fight with the devil. The salvation of a great number of souls is at stake. One professor reminded us of the words of St. Here I will share a few of his reflections.

If all sexual activity outside of marriage is a sin, is it also a sin to kiss outside of marriage? Before continuing with this article, please review the preamble included at the beginning of Scott’s first article in this series, “Biblical Dating: How It’s Different From Modern Dating.” All.
As early as BCE references suggest that the Ketuvim was starting to take shape, although it lacked a formal title. Many scholars believe that the limits of the Ketuvim as canonized scripture were determined by the Council of Jamnia c. Septuagint Fragment of a Septuagint: A column of uncial book from 1 Esdras in the Codex Vaticanus c. The Torah always maintained its pre-eminence as the basis of the canon but the collection of prophetic writings, based on the Nevi’im, had various hagiographical works incorporated into it.
In addition, some newer books were included in the Septuagint, among these are the Maccabees and the Wisdom of Sirach. However, the book of Sirach , is now known to have existed in a Hebrew version, since ancient Hebrew manuscripts of it were rediscovered in modern times. The Septuagint version of some Biblical books, like Daniel and Esther , are longer than those in the Jewish canon.
Several reasons have been given for this. First, some mistranslations were claimed. Second, the Hebrew source texts used for the Septuagint differed from the Masoretic tradition of Hebrew texts, which was chosen as canonical by the Jewish rabbis. After the Protestant Reformation , many Protestant Bibles began to follow the Jewish canon and exclude the additional texts, which came to be called Biblical apocrypha.

It confuses, perplexes, and even angers both Christians and non-Christians alike. It sounds elitist, holier-than-thou, and downright condescending. Really must be Christian meh? If your standard not so high I would intro you to my friend s already lah. Perfect in the sense that he was almost exactly like me, we liked the same things, had the same tastes, he knew what kind of stuff I would like, we supported the same football team..

Reasons Christianity is False
She explained that what she really likes about our teaching is that we don’t go by what men say, but rather what The Book says. I have always tried to take that approach, even if people don’t agree with me. I just want to get them into The Book, and let them see what the Book really says. Many times we say things they don’t agree with, but at least it makes them get into The Book and see why they don’t agree; and many times it brings them around to our point of view.
We don’t hue to any denominational line, we just teach the Word as the Spirit has led us to teach it. We trust you will be blessed by it.

Go to Catholic Exchange homepage Jose Samilin The Protestants formally denied the authority of the Church because they do not need the church to come to Jesus, since they believed they were bold enough to go straight to God for their salvation. Their authority is the bible put on top of the table, so they point out to that bible, though such book is clearly made up of mere paper and ink.
That belief of bible alone is not supported by the bible. The bible was written by men, in the case of the Gospels men who never heard or saw Jesus. Mark is the most reliable but it has problems also. If you take the bible seriously you wonder what happened to the Kingdom of God Jesus and Paul expected imminently. The church came instead, a sort of second or third prize, I guess.

The Bible And Christianity – The Historical Origins A rational, secular, historical perspective on the history of Christianity and its scripture An essay by Scott Bidstrup “If the truth is that ugly — which it is — then we do have to be careful about the way that we tell the truth. But to somehow say that telling the truth should be avoided because people may respond badly to the truth seems bizarre to me. Paul’s Catholic Church The Bible is a lot of things to a lot of people, but to Christians, especially, it is a source of inspiration and a guide to daily living.
To others, the Bible is a historical document and a source of controversy. To others still, the Bible is a self-contradictory mish-mash of arcane rules and proscriptions, mostly relevant to long-dead cultures in far away places. What is the truth in all of this?

Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? Then they will be My people, and I shall be their God. And they will be My people, and I will be their God.

At the bottom of this post appear the sahih or authorized translations from Quran. Below is also a summary of the koranic view of women, as well as relevant videos by Muslim authorities, expressing a very typical attitude towards women. Please note that millions of children worldwide are forced to learn these koranic scriptures by memory. Keep aloof from women during their menstrual periods and do not approach them until they are clean again; when they are clean, have intercourse with them whence God enjoined you….
Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them. But if you fear that you cannot maintain equality among them, marry one only or any slave-girl you may own. The same shall apply to those [of your wives] who have not yet menstruated. Child marriages were common.
A believing slave-girl is better than an idolatress, although she may please you. Nor shall you wed idolaters, unless they embrace the Faith. And let them not stamp their feet when walking so as to reveal their hidden trinkets. If you fear God, do not be too complaisant in your speech, lest the lecherous-hearted should lust after you.
They fall on their knees, worshipping at the base of granite monuments to the Ten Commandments while demanding prayer in school. They appeal to God to save America from their political opponents, mostly Democrats. This is no longer a matter of personal or private faith.
A biblical canon or canon of scripture is a set of texts (or “books”) which a particular religious community regards as authoritative English word “canon” comes from the Greek κανών, meaning “rule” or “measuring stick”.Christians became the first to use the term in reference to scripture, but Eugene Ulrich regards the idea as Jewish.

The suspect was sprinkled with holy water, stripped to her undergarments then trussed up with her right thumb tied to her left big toe and vice versa.
With a rope around her waist she was tossed into a pond or river. If she floated, she was a witch, if she sank she could be hauled out and saved
