Catholic Church Says / Bible Says:

  • Regarding The Bible #3

    The Catholic Church says that the Apocrypha are canonical books of the Bible (Divinely inspired)

    Non-Catholic denominations show that they are not divinely inspired but have spiritual value.

    The Apocrypha are Not Canonical

    Question: How do you know that the Protestant Bible is the right one, and not the Catholic Bible, which includes more books in the Old Testament?

    Answer: The Protestant and Catholic Bible are identical except for a set of books called the apocrypha or deuterocanonicals.

    The apocrypha consists of 15 pieces of Jewish literature written around 200 years B.C. They are included with the Greek translation of the Hebrew scriptures known as the Septuagint. Seven of these books (First and Second Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, Wisdom, Baruch and Ecclesiasticus, also known as Sirach) and additions to Esther and Daniel, are considered canonical by the Roman Catholic Church. Protestants do not accept them as part of the Holy Scriptures.

JERUSALEM IDOL

JERUSALEM IDOL+
"After singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives". (Mark 14:26) Can you hear Jesus singing? Can you imagine that. A perfect Man with a perfect voice! Was he a bass or a tenor? Was there a down-home twang to his voice? Or was there an unwavering crystal pitch? Imagine further if He appeared on the "Jerusalem Idol" program. He'd be a sure winner. Wouldn't be close.

Did he close his eyes and sing to his Father? Or did he look into his disciples’ eyes and smile at their deep camaraderie?
My meditating on this is the result of John Piper's devotion app of yesterday. John said "O, I can hardly wait to hear Jesus sing! I think the planets would be jolted out of orbit if he lifted his native voice in our universe. But we have a kingdom that cannot be shaken; so, Lord, come on and sing". Some day soon I will have the amazing thrill of hearing That Voice. Will You? Accept Him to hear Him and join His song. Sounds great.

 If, as Rome teaches, purposely missing Mass on Sunday is a mortal sin punishable by condemnation to hell upon death, where are the 70% of Catholics who stopped attending Mass and have since died? (Pew Report 2011)

"A good name is better than precious ointment, and the day of death better than the day of birth" (Ecl 7)

"Our culture has aged, our churches are big and empty and the church bureaucracy rises up, our rituals and our cassocks are pompous," the Cardinal said. "The Church must admit its mistakes and begin a radical change, starting from the Pope and the bishops. The paedophilia scandals oblige us to take a journey of transformation." (Archbishop, Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini) The Independent.
