    That, too. :)

    Mother Mary

    No, they are not. I put down in a thread that prayer to Our Lady of Perpetual Help on here. Nowhere does the pray-er ask Mary to intercede for him with Jesus--from start to finish it is a prayer of hyper praise to her, begging her for help, salvation, and refuge. Even to save him from the...

    I have a request for two Catholics on here....

    Not more classic hymns, like "Crown Him with Many Crowns" or "Holy Holy Holy"?

    No kidding.

    Mother Mary

    So, the perfect Son of God who never sinned honored His mother IMperfectly??? Is that what you are implying? Jesus kept all the commandments perfectly, including the one about honoring our fathers and mothers. You are really getting desperate here, to demand such a....foolish thing! Did Jesus...

    Mother Mary

    Luke 1--41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! 43 But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come...

    Mother Mary

    But Luke recorded the Bereans doing so, to see if what Paul had taught them was true. So should we all, to test any doctrine that is taught in church.

    The Holy Spirit. But where did He say we should and could pray to Mary for help, salvation, and succor?

    Mother Mary

    It isn't Mary who perfects our prayers, or helps us pray, but the Holy Spirit, Who intercedes for us, as Paul plainly says. Why do Catholics always give glory to Mary instead of to God? And almost none of the Marian prayers I have read are pleas for intercession--instead, they are pleas for...

    The relationship between the Fall and Temple Ordinances

    No--but then neither do Mormons. But the bible verses say that Jesus taught them about the Kingdom of God during that time. He did so during His earthly ministry. Nowhere did He mention Mormon temples and the Endowment ceremony. WE know what they taught, because is has been recorded in Acts...

    The First Estate (Premortality)

    Once again, we see someone proving something their church teaches, from legitimate LDS sources, but being told that he/she is wrong.

    Works based Salvation? Yes or No

    If we must do deeds to qualify us to receive grace, then grace is no longer grace--God's undeserved favor. THIS is how we receive God's grace "For by grace you are saved, THROUGH FAITH--and that NOT of yourselves; it is the gift of God--and NOT by works, so no one may boast." Sure. Except...

    Divine Potential not a Modern day Christian Doctrine

    No, we couldn't. Or wouldn't. But then, I never read in the Bible where wealth in a church is a sign of God's favor--in fact, wealth can be an impediment in a church: This describes YOUR church. But what does Jesus Christ have to say about poor churches? My church may be poorer than yours...

    Mormons are required to earn each blessing:

    Which your church does NOT. Show us where Jesus taught that polygamy was part of the "new and everlasting covenant" and that it was okay for JS to marry young, teen-aged girls, and other men's wives....where He taught the necessity of building multiple "temples" all over the world in which to...
