Re: Catholicism - Supported by Scripture & History

Maybe we should create a follow-up thread to discuss Revelation haha. Given how complicated that book is, I suspect that thread could go on for years. I would say that the three strongest reasons that support interpreting the woman of Rev. 12 to be Mary are: (1) she gives birth to the ruler of all n...

Re: A Question for My Non-Catholic Friends

RemnantRD, thanks for your honest response. To be sure, I didn't consider your list to be "bashing" Catholicism. As you pointed out, I asked, and I'm glad you responded freely. Unsurprisingly, I do not think that any of the 14 points you mentioned contradicts Scripture. Breaking down each point you ...

Re: Catholicism - Supported by Scripture & History

ArticFox and RemantRD, thanks for sharing. I'll respond first to some points ArticFox made and then to those made by RemnantRD. We both agree that Revelation is a highly symbolic book, and so it is true that the woman of Rev. 12 can be understood to be the Church. But because it is a symbolic book, ...

Re: A Question for My Non-Catholic Friends

Some interesting and insightful posts here, friends. RemnantRD, nice to meet you! I appreciate your perspective, and will first respond by saying, in answer to your question, that no, believing in the authority of Scripture and the guidance of the Holy Spirit would not be considered sola scriptura (...

Re: Catholicism - Supported by Scripture & History

Sstavix, I understand where you're coming from, but let me clarify the status of Mary in the Catholic Church. You're right to point out the the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception applies to Mary, not Christ. But of course the Church affirms that Jesus too was sinless and, of course, was conceived...

Re: A Question for My Non-Catholic Friends

Hey team, thanks for the posts! Cheryl, I'll address your two articles first, and then, ArticFox, I'll comment on your post. I followed the two links you sent, Cheryl, and read them with interest. Ultimately, however, despite what each article claimed, I don't think either one really addressed the i...

A Question for My Non-Catholic Friends

This year marks 500 years after the launch of the Protestant Reformation. As we all know, Jesus prayed repeatedly during His last supper that those who believe in Him "may all be one" (Jn. 17:20-22). Given then, that Jesus longs for His Body and Bride, the Church, to be one, my hope is that this yea...

Re: Catholicism - Supported by Scripture & History

Ah no! Minecraft server crashing/switching crisis sounds terrible! I'm sorry that happened. Just to respond quickly to your question about buying and burying statues, I think this is a great and totally fair question. To understand this practice, it's important to remember that Catholicism is a sacr...

You and I met on Twitter (@PureCatholicism), and you had the great idea of holding our conversation over this forum. Thanks for the recommendation! Per our tweets, I'll kick s...
