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.

    104 In Sacred Scripture, the Church constantly finds her nourishment and her strength, for she welcomes it not as a human word, "but as what it really is, the word of God".67 "In the sacred books, the Father who is in heaven comes lovingly to meet his children, and talks with them."68

    CCC

    31“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32Before him will be gathered all the nations,.." (Mt. 25) May the Divine assistance remain always with us and the Choctaw Nation.

      You guys can't help simply bringing up STRAW-MAN arguments, over and over again.
      You don't want "discussion", you simply want mockery.

      Tell us... Is "mockery" a fruit of the spirit?
      Is "mockery" one of the things Jesus commanded of you?

      I believe the Bible because it is the word of God.
      I believe the Bible because Jesus testified that it was the word of God.
      I believe the Bible because the Holy Spirit testified that it was the word of God.

          Apparently, the uninspired CCC validates the inspired Bible.

            If you mean "Does the internal consistency of the Bible and its manuscript evidence, archaeological evidence, prophetic evidence, and statistical evidence provide sufficient evidence for you to believe the Bible is true in its claims", then, yes.

              Do you the difference between "validate" and "welcome"?

                You mean CCC welcomes invalidated Bible?

                  I believe the bible because I know it is the truth of GOD. The same cannot be said of the words of men.
                  The protest against Rome will not end as long as I have one breath of air in my lungs.

                    I believe the Bible because the Tomb is empty.
                    if Christ had not been raised from the dead then I would NOT believe the Bible

                      Who told you this? The Bible or someone else?

                      I believe the Bible because Jesus testified that it was the word of God.
                      Did you read this testimony in the Bible or did someone tell you about Jesus' testimony?

                      I believe the Bible because the Holy Spirit testified that it was the word of God.
                      Did you read this testimony in the Bible or did the Holy Spirit inspire you directly?

                      Pray!

                          The infallible Catholic Church validates the inspiration of the Bible, yes.

                              How can that be?
                              There is no comparison of manuscripts in the Bible, Itself. Bible experts have to do that by comparing one manuscript to another..
                              Archaelogists search for evidence in ancient artifacts to prove the validity of the Bible.
                              Biblical prophecies are proven when they occur outside the Bible and are recorded in history.
                              Statistical evidence is gathered by statisticians who exist outside the Bible.

                              This sort of evidence is not from the Bible alone.
                              Pray!
