I'm sorry? You find the anti catholic overtones to be offensive, then on the other hand, you say -
I'm sorry, I should have said "religious fundamentalist nuts".
You say myth and then fail to read your own link which clearly states that they have removed gods second commandment of not making graven images or bowing down to them.
If you actually read the links properly, you'd know that the commandments (in that form) are an invention of the Middle Ages.
What do the catholic church do? They make graven images and then bow down to them. Not only that, they make money from them, selling statues of mary, selling images of their saints etc.
It provides comfort to Catholics. What's the big deal? Does it really hurt anyone if a Catholic prays to a picture of Mary?
Not only that. Sunday was the first day of the week as Saturday was the last. Saturday is Gods holy sabbath day as the last day of the week. The vatican has made Sunday (the first day of the week) it's holy day.
No, the Vatican didn't make it Sunday. It was rather just a historical accident - it's no big deal to anyone. Trying to discredit Catholicism because they have Sunday instead of Saturday as a holy day - really.
4. We believe the Catholic Church alone has the authority to give to God's people an authoritative list of the Ten Commandments.
You see, religions tend to believe that they alone have the authority to decide what is and what isn't. It would be a weird religion that said "well, guys, actually we think everyone is right". I imagine those Seventh Day Adventist lot are remarkably intolerant towards others, too. It's normal.
Now the gentleman was asking which church does bible study, so i told him that the Adventist church do bible study. The first hour of their sabbath services are dedicated to bible study.
Most churches do bible studies. It's nothing special. I know at least two Catholic churches in Poznań that do it in English.
Who has the biblical truth and follows the whole bible and nothing but the bible? Remembering that Judaism only follows the old testament? The answer is easy - The Seventh Day Adventists have the TRUTH
Since when in Christianity has the Bible been the sole source of truth? Jesus himself was making all sorts of stuff up regularly.
This is laughable.
Yes, I agree with Roger that the idea of the Seventh Day Adventists having the truth is indeed laughable.
Hey, Polonius, care to join in? This might be the first thread in which you and the British posters are in full agreement ;)
