As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Jesus never visited His mother after the Resurrection

    If Mary is as important in the gospel as Roman Catholics believe, why did Christ not appear to her, but instead to His disciples ?
    John saw Him, and Christ put Mary in his care.. yet there is no mention of Mary being visited or even a witness to the risen Christ or His ascension
    Have I now become your enemy because I tell you the truth ? Gal 4:16

    Which is nothing more than an assumption on your part, based on what the Bible DOESN'T say.

        My condolences. I escaped that inconvenience (although I'm on the books as a Roman Catholic, by virtue of my baptism).

          they never take you off of their 'books' either. we were taught 'once a catholic always a catholic'. they're wrong on that also, even if they don't reflect it in their numbers, millions have left their church / religion. I started disbelieving its teachings in jr high.

          The debt I owed was canceled in the twinkling of an eye."

            True - when they wet your heat, you're in the books forever.

              Probably because her role is in heaven as the Queen.
              And the disciples role was here on earth as Priests.

                the reasonings that catholics base their beliefs on... plus assume, might be, could be, it seems to me, we can conclude, possibly, the RCC teaches, etc - anything except what His word actually does say.

                  I have asked this question of Joe T. and got no response. Now I am going to ask you--- When the Apostle John was in Heaven witnessing the events of Revelation, Why didn't he write about Mary as being enthroned beside Jesus as the "Queen of Heaven"?
                  The protest against Rome will not end as long as I have one breath of air in my lungs.

                    According the Eastern tradition, Mary was one of women who first saw the empty tomb of the risen Christ. The Theotokos is "Mary the mother of James" (Mark 16:1) and "the other Mary" (Matthew 28:1). Eastern tradition is that the Theotokos was the stepmother of James, who was Joseph's son by an earlier marriage.

                    I would also point out that Paul says that the risen Christ, "appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep" (1 Cor 15:6). The Virgin Mary may also have been among those as well.

                      Perhaps because she is the heavenly "ark of His covenant" and the "woman clothed with the sun" (Rev. 19:19-20:2).

                        thx for telling us that your ET is no more scripture (His truth) than that of the RCC and its ST.

                        too bad catholics don't read it all in context, then you'd know the truth of it.

                        The debt I owed was canceled in the twinkling of an eye."

                          she is neither of those - again catholics just make it up because that's what they want to believe.

                            Do you really believe that Jesus would be this terrible of a son? When so many of His disciples abandoned Him at the Cross?

                            Do you believe that He hated His mother?
                            May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable, most incomprehensible and ineffable Name of God be forever praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified in Heaven, on Earth, and under the Earth by all the creatures of God and by the Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Amen.

                              She was alive at the resurrection, she was not in heaven she was on the earth when He rose
