Pope names three new saints
Pope Benedict XVI named three new saints for the Catholic Church during Sunday Mass in St. Peter's Square that was disrupted by a man who climbed out onto the upper colonnade and burned a Bible.

The disruption came toward the end of the two-hour service Sunday to canonize three 19th-century founders of religious orders: Italian bishop and missionary Monsignor Guido Maria Conforti, Spanish nun Sister Bonifacia Rodriguez de Castro and an Italian priest who worked with the poor, the Rev. Luigi Guanella.

On hand in the crowd was William Glisson Jr., from the Philadelphia area in the U.S., whose cure from a 2002 head injury was declared the miracle needed to canonize Guanella. ...

I am not advocating for theonomy or a theocracy. It was not the legislature that legalized the killing of children, it was the Supreme Court. Thus, if they wanted to (which they don't), the Supreme Court can undo what it has done to begin with. One then looks at the make-up of the court and sees 9 people who ascribe to antichrist religions, it stands to reason they would engage in antichrist behaviors.

Ah, Roman Catholic Tradition, Christians are against it!
I was speaking of 6 specific Roman Catholics and 3 specific Jews, Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Stephen Breyer. If these Babylonian religions desired to have abortion ended, they have people in positions of sufficient power to do so.

But JSI
The True Biblical Church, that is Protestant Church, has known for centuries that the incumbent pope is the papal antichrist, therefore is unholy.
WCF(Dated 1648) Quote:
28/6. There is no other Head of the Church but the Lord Jesus Christ(a) nor can the Pope of Rome, in any sense be head thereof; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin and son of perdition, that exalteth himself in the Church against Christ, and all that is called God.(b)

a. Eph 1:22; Col 1:18. • b. Mat 23:8-10; 2 Thes 2:3-4, 8-9; Rev 13:6.

And don't forget:
Ex 20.4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Do you appreciate it when Tony or others refer to you as sinner, apostate, heretic or some other mean and nasty name? If you don't then wouldn't it be best not to refer to Pope Benedict XVI as "His Unholiness" or other derogatory title? Although I refer to myself as totally depraved from time-to-time, I wouldn't appreciate it if another were to refer to me this way.

If I mentioned your pastor, I'd refer to him as Pastor Rugh (if that's what he prefers to be called), not by some insulting title or name.

Although some Baptist congregations may assume that the Roman Catholic Church is not Christian, isn't this like Rhode Island seceding and claiming itself to be the only U.S. state? After a measure of time the other 49 American states would return the straying RI back to the fold.

etc.

The Roman Catholic Bible not only has the Book of Revelation, but of course extra material in both the Old and New Testament that God never had in there!

Rufus,
The Protestant Reformation has progressed through these 500 years from a world war, to a cold war to today Evangelicals and Catholics working together to fight abortion, same-sex "marriage" and other oppression. As in the Civil War, whatever blood was spilled, was long ago, long since forgotten and, most importantly, long since forgiven by the Blood of Christ. Amen.
This evangelical does not work with Catholics to fight abortion. 6 Catholics and 3 Jews could end the abortion fight immediately if they were favorable towards doing so.

Neither blood spilled in the war against the states nor spilled by the Roman Catholic church has been forgotten by all, though perhaps has been forgotten by some.

Christ has not forgiven Rome for the shedding of the blood of saints past, present and future. He will judge her though...

"And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:" - Revelation 17:1

---
From the Catholic Encyclopedia:

"The formula used in the act of canonization has nothing more than this:

"In honour of . . . we decree and define that Blessed N. is a Saint, and we inscribe his name in the catalogue of saints, and order that his memory be devoutly and piously celebrated yearly on the . . . day of . . . his feast."

To decree someone a saint is a bit more than mere validation of a saint already in existence. In fact, as you can see, canonization is an order. "So and so is a saint...I have spoken."

I didn't say "translation", I said greek text.

You'll find all the info you need about The Codex Vaticanus and its omission of the book of Revelation here.

As to the former, if you are serious about getting all your questions answered, please do a Bible verse search to the left and listen to one of the sermons on that subject.

Thank you.

Quite correct Rufus.
Little wonder that their favoured greek texts omit the book of Revelation. For there is the Catholic Abominable Antichrist portrayed in all its true crimson colours.
"And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration."
-Revelation 17:6

Is this verse referring to a distant time in the early Protestant Reformation or a time in the distant future? Who is this drunk woman and why would she desire the blood of the saints and martyrs? If she's a character in the past, what are the names of these saints and martyrs? Why would this narrator watch this woman's evil deeds "with great admiration"? Who is this narrator?

Also, please point us to a Roman Catholic Church Bible text that omits the Book of Revelation (AKA Apocalypse). I've never heard of such a tale.

Rather than being an authority on defining "saints", the papacy is instead responsible for spilling their blood.

Unfortunately for this approach, no man can make a saint of another.

For your edification, run a biblical word search on "saint." You'll see where the difference is.

Who are in "this great cloud of witnesses" of our lives? That is, who's watching our every move besides God? Who's listening to our every word besides the angels? The saints in heaven.

Can they be our advocate to Christ if we ask them? Certainly. May we pray directly to Christ? Definitely.

However, the standard process when you go to court is we take our advocate (knowledgeable attorney) to speak on our behalf. Likewise, when you approach the throne of grace to petition our Great High Judge, you can pray to Him directly or ask your advocate -- a saint -- to approach Him for you -- either way. But since a saint's already there, he knows better how to "approach the bench," so to speak.

Please take this a gently as I might say it to you BUT right to the point you are seriously amiss.

Biblically saints, holy ones, the redeemed are those set apart by God and for God, His own special treasure NOT somekind of super spiritual achievers who attain by their own good works merit to become somekind of lesser dieties men can worship (I know Catholics call it veneration) and pray to.
