    I guess you're right but I'm counting on a Body of Christ that isn't perfectly washed everyday. I might just escape notice on that left little toe.

    Have you checked your toes today? tWINs

    I believe the word you're looking for is "refuted."
    It's your right-wing interpretation of Christianity forum and control and we all have to live with that or get lost but don't attempt to present this "all opinions welcome" dangling carrot forum when your motive is simply no more than partisan self-servitude...
    OH NO! The dreaded specter (accusation) of "right-wing" bubbles to the surface.

    I see partisan politics dominates your thinking. Nice try. You can stop whining any time now.

    Where in Scripture does it say that Jesus the Christ will establish or re-establish a church upon His return?
    At which point, the real Peter will be resurrected and take his rightful place in leading that church.
    Where does the Bible point this out?
    So, as Knight pointed out, their error is failing to distinguish Paul's unique minstry and the change that took place after Peter "went to his own place" in Acts and completely dropped off the biblical scene.
    I do not understand that.

    I fight against partisan politics whenever it pops up whether it be a left wing-nut or a right wing-nut. Nice try. You can stop whining any time now.

    Your credibility has been dead for some time now Frank; take it out back and bury it...

    The Body of Christ has been washed in His blood, and is permanently clean, without blemish.

    Smile On Second Thought

    And why I'm up earlier than normal on a Sunday...I decided people were right and I should clean up my body.

    Originally I was attempting to take the traditional "last seat in the back of the church" Catholic humility thing. I'll stay with this theme but I've decided that I can be an insignificant but more scripturally sound body part by becomeing....Taaa...taaa and the drums roooooollll...."The hair in the left nostril of the Body of Christ that feels the Spirit come in and the Spirit go out."

    Thanks for setting me right.

    And here I thought I was trying to share the Spirit with you and you me. I'm sorry if I was mistaken.

    1Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the desert, 2where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry. luke 4:1-2

    I (as a Christ follower and Temple of the Holy Spirit) would appear to have the Spirit within, and also without, leading me. I thought the breath of life was another wording for Holy Spirit. tWINs

    A key to understanding the Bible for a Catholic.

    These three points are essential to a basic understanding of the bible:

    God is indeed the principal author of Sacred Scripture.
    God made use of specific people that wrote in a human language, and did so at a particular time and place in history.
    At times we have to work carefully to determine exactly what a sacred author is asserting to be true, distinguishing that from something he's using as an image to help us understand the truth more clearly.
