How about the pope?


#262

Forgive me for using information from one of your earlier posts. How was I to know you were giving inaccurate information about yourself?


#263

Where are the scriptures requiring this? :smiley:


#264

He is the bishop of Rome.


#265

Where are the scriptures prohibiting it?


#266

There was no bishop of rome in the 1st century. Also once again he is just a man not one to be bowed before.


#267

Perhaps you missed the places that mentioned Jesus wearing a robe, or being stripped of his robe?


#268

Speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where it is silent is good advice.


#269

I missed the requirement of it to be worn in the services.


#270

I was not addressing any of that. You asked about the pope, I gave you information about the pope.


#271

You said earlier your ministers wear a suit and tie. Scriptural?


#272

Where are the scriptures requiring this? :grinning:


#273

Bet you guys are from California. I have a sister in law who is catholic out there. She and her kids clearly have never been questioned and don’t like it.

Probably because there are so many out there. In this area there are many more noncatholic christians than catholics.


#274

Not required to wear a suit and tie. You guys try to require the robes. Tradition.


#275

Questioned about what, exactly?


#276

Any discrepancies between the scriptures and catholic teaching or practices.


#277

You have asked pitifully few questions, in spite of me encouraging you to do so. You have, however, spouted many falsehoods.


#278

Ever heard of not adding to or taking away from the scriptures? It’s in Revelation.


#279

We “require” robes like other “require” a suit and tie. Our practice is vestments of the type worn in Roman times. It appears your practice is suit and tie worn in modern times.

No i just tell it like it is. You aren’t required to like it.
