[quote:Lester 19057510:MV8yMDY2NDA0XzM0NzkwOTE0XzE0NDBBOTdG] About 8yrs ago in our homechurch service, my daughter asked why did Jesus teach using parables... We found in Matthew 13 Jesus' Witness and Explanation. See verse 15 where God The Son states HIS Purpose and Intent which the use of parables serve.... 10. And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11. He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. 12. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. 13. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 14. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15. *** For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. *** 16. But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. 17. For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. In Matt 22, HE Gives the parable of The King's Wedding Feast: 2. "The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, 3. And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. 4. Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. 5. But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: 6. And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. 7. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. 8. Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. 9. Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. 10. So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. 11. And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12. And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13. Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14. For many are called, but few are chosen. It is your choice, your election whether you will answer God's Call Upon your heart. Many are called, but few elect to answer HIS Call... Not much longer now... Maranatha!!! [/quote]
..His Church and though you may not understand or accept all She teaches right now you must submit to her authority. How hard is that to do with our prideful fallen nature? In time, with prayer and study you will find the RCC is the true faith.
The fullness of God's
needed can only be found in the Roman Catholic Church.
The "gate is narrow", don't you want to get to Heaven?
How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!
