Scripture Quotations from RCIA

When I was in RCIA over two years ago before joining the Traditional Catholic Movement, I made a list of different parts of scripture that I thought were really important to me. Here is a brief list that I wanted to share with my readers:

Matthew 5:3-11- Beatitudes!!

Matthew 5:28- "But I say to you, everyone that looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart."

Matthew 8:11- "I say to you, many will come from the east and west and will recline with Abraham, Issac and Jacob at the banquet in the kingdom of heaven."

Matthew 8:12- "...but the children of the kingdom will be driven out into the outer darkness, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth."

Matthew 10:22- "You will be hated by all because of my name, but whoever endures to the end will be saved."

Matthew 19:24- "Again I say to you, It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God."

John 3:16- "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that all who believe in him might not perish but have eternal life."

John 3:17- "For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him."

John 6:35- "Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.'"

John 8:12- "Jesus spoke to them again, saying, 'I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'"

John 21:29-
"Jesus said to him, 'Have you come to believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.'"

James 3:26- "For just as a body without a spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead."

1 John 1:5- "...God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all."

1 John 2:4-5- "Whoever says, 'I know him,' but does not keep his commandments is a lair, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps his word, the love of God is truly perfected in him."

1 John 2:9-11- "Whoever says he is in the light, yet hates his brother, is still in the darkness. Whoever loves his brother remains in the light, and there is nothing in him to cause a fall. Whoever hates his brother is in darkness; he walks in darkness and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

1 John 2:15-17- "Do not love the world or the things of the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, sensual lust, enticement for the eyes, and a pertentious life, is not from the Father but is from the world. Yet the world and its enticement are passing away. But whoever does the will of God remains forever."

1 John 2:18- "Chidren, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that the anitchrist was coming, so now many antichrists have appeared. Thus we know this is the last hour."

1 John 2:22- "Who is the lair? Whoever denies Jesus is the Christ. Whoever denies the Father and the Son, this is the antichrist."

This is an excellent list of scriptures. When I converted I didn't attend RCIA. Instead I was given instructions weekly by a parish priest in his office and very little scripture was used.

Since I read scripture a lot it's interesting to see how often our Lord uses daily circumstances to bring His Word alive.
