Moses and the prophets testified to Jesus of Nazareth - the foretold and long awaited Messias, the Son of God.
We believe their testimony, we do not believe in the man-made collection of fables und slanders known as the Talmud.
"Jesus saith unto him,...he that hath seen me hath seen the Father" (John 14;9).
they certainly view Mr Blair┬┤s religion with suspicion - if he was sincere when he regularly attended mass and took communion in the RCC until he was told he musn┬┤t why didn┬┤t he join the RCC officialy ? Scared of the effect on the voters ?
And if he wasn┬┤t sincere why did he act like that ? To please his wife ?

Jenny, not objecting to the biblical doctrine in Benedict┬┤s book, it┬┤s the untruths he smuggles in next to it.
Too many currants won┬┤t spoil your cake but a VERY little arsenic will ruin it -unnoticed - until it┬┤s too late !

You can find many more "unbelievable" reports like that; eg:- in "Near to Rome, Far from God" - by a number of "ex-priests". One of them relates what happened in a cathedral in South America when a mouse stole a consecrated host during mass.
What┬┤s so "unbelievable" about Jessica┬┤s story ? As recently as 50 years back a RC friend told us it was forbidden for them to read the Bible.
But it┬┤s to be feared that it┬┤s all equally "unbelievable" in your opinion.
The Gospel is still preached in Germany; but, in the main, by individuals and in small "house churches". It is not, with few exceptions, taught in the official denominations - whether nominally Lutheran or Calvinist. The trouble is due partly to the fact that, "state recognition" with all its financial benefits involves the acceptance even of "un-christian" legislation and consequently "obeying man rather than God". The "Bekennende Kirche" - Acknowledging/Confessing Church - Underground Church - existed in Hitler┬┤s Germany, in communist lands and still exists everywhere in the world today. This "State Recognition" - which began with the opportunistic Emperor Constantine - has been the downfall of many promising Churches and individual christians.
"Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father┬┤s good pleasure to give you thre kingdom." (Luke 12;32)
If Tony Bliar had been honest with himself - snd with the voters - he┬┤ld have turned roman catholic years back. He never attended an anglican service except on state occasions; he always attended the roman mass and he even took communion there until some Cardinal forbade it. So now he┬┤s to be received into the roman church ? Surprise, surprise
Sorry Jim - thought you wanted a german bible. But 1000┬┤s of errors in the KJV ? Only know 3 myself - Isaiah 9;3 - 1 John 5;7 -and 1 Tim 3;16. All are rectified in Westcott and Hort┬┤s Revised Edition. Ivan Panin┬┤s Revision based on Bible Numerics is well worth consulting.
He should look at the law-enforcement in Germany. Youngsters of 8 or 9 band up in gangs and terrorize other children; teenagers beat up pensioners for a few euros - and they all have to be sent home. Oh yes - they are asked please not to do it again. "They┬┤re only children."
The german bible Jim Lincoln means is the "Elberfelder Bibel" first published in 1855 as a literal text by the Brethren and Dispensationalist Movement with John Nelson Darby┬┤s cooperation. As Christian Raas writes, it possibly lacks the majesty of Luther┬┤s translation; but it is perhaps closer to the original. It is still widely used.
Lance Eccles wrote: Halloween was originally a pagan festival. It was Christianized by the Catholic Church, being made a celebration of all the saints in heaven. Protestants didn't want to know about saints in heaven, so the festival has reverted to its pagan origins.
another twisted argument Lance -
the Catholic Church did not "christianize" the festival - she "incorporated" it.
Those born again (John 3;3-8) go to heaven when they die but they are not to be prayed to - see among other places Elijah┬┤s answer to Saul (1 Samuel 28;11-19)
Halloween has never been a "Protestant" custom and those born again do not celebrate it.
having been a medical practitioner for 40-odd years - including some 10 years assisting in the medical supervision of `red-light-districts` - my findings indicate that homosexuality was almost(?) invariably due to a deliberate choice following enjoyable experiences. A homosexual potential may(?) exist - and why not, in our fallen state? - but the subsequent course is voluntary, and in God┬┤s eyes, sinful.
Nothing new under the sun. First, `nominal christians┬┤ are enticed into a church offering `some sort of certainty┬┤ - then congregations comprising `nominalchristians┬┤follow suit and then it may well be that whole denominations - in the oecumenical movement for example - may go over `en bloc┬┤ to Rome.
These times are reviewed in Pauls Second Epistle to the Thessalonians, chapter 2; and in his Second Epistle to Timothy, Chapter 4.
The Gospel is plain for all that have eyes to see :-
"Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else." (Isaiah, 45;22) - and - "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;" (Hebrews,12;2)
Very true Jim - of course Lance is missing the point again. If Catholic Church Law should prevail over Civil Law it means - as it did in mediaeval times - that "criminal clergy" should be exempt from secular punishment whereas "heretics" would be handed over to the secular arm to be dealt with according to the Churches verdict. Nice prospects.
