Bet you've also bought big screen tvs, drum sets, keyboards and lots of artificial flowers and ficus trees. Doesn't seem very cost effective to buy a round trip ticket to Africa and only stay two weeks! But then 40 people from a low end prot church around here went to Zimbabwe to help out for a week.

I could send you some pictures, but I won't. We have teams of trained ministers in several African countries, china, Guatemala, Mexico, canada and some I cannot recall. We also work with Christ for the nations. Our membership supports this work and sometimes we send teams of high school and college students with our pastors to help them decide if they want to become international missionaries. Did I tell you we have some very wealthy members? And yes we have two big screen monitors and three buildings on our campus. The main building and the land was donated to us by anonymous donors.

However we do not have a vault full of gold and priceless paintings like the vatican has.

Protestants have little to accuse the RCC over that they couldn't also be charged with. So is this what we've reduced ourselves to? Biting and devouring one another seems so counter-Christian...
just goes to show the love they have to the world...
Correct. No group escapes being guilty of crimes or indecency. Anybody recall some of the things Johnny Marrs said he was a victim of at the hands of coc? Lord help us all.

I think that is great. Good works always is. Faith without works is dead.

Catholic parishes has been doing that for centuries. After all, the CC were the only Christians for 1500 years.

Every dioceses has a sister parish somewhere in the world. The youth and volunteers travel there every year to help. Priests are assigned there to help. Special collections are held.

Nothing new.

Where is this vault full of Gold. The Pope would like to know. They have been in the red the last few years.

Did you know the Vatican budget is 200 million dollars a year?

One Protestant Church in Houston, Lakewood, has a budget of 70 million 1/3 that of the Vatican and the Vatican serves 1.2 Billion people.

Great but if these trained ministers are teaching false doctrine, what are they leading them to?

I hope they are keeping them fed at least. Catholic Relief Services are probably doing that part.

Maybe you should pay a visit to the pastor's basement.

So do you think the great paintings, sculptures, books and manuscripts, cathedrals and parish churches just magically appeared at the Pope's big doors? These beautiful things were given by donors, known and anonymous. These beautiful things are priceless, yes, but able to be converted to cash? No way. In centuries past it was even the custom for a donor to have his portrait included when commissioning a painting for a church. There are thousands of these. Sure, there maybe some gold but I'll bet you have some in your house too. When I see people like you bash the Catholic Church for its 2,000 years of accumulated historic treasures I am reminded of that line from The Little Drummer Boy... Our finest gifts we bring
Pa rum pum pum pum
To lay before the King
Pa rum pum pum pum

By the way it is not possible for anyone to donate land and remain anonymous.

Thanks for confirming again what the rest of us have known all along. The Catholic church worships it's Pope, not Jesus Christ.

What did Judas tell Jesus. That oil that was used on you could have been sold for a years wages to help to poor.

Follow Judas if you want.

Have you sold all of your possessions yet?

We do not have female preachers/pastors/elders. You and Mark seem to know a lot less than you think you do.

Interesting tidbit. My wife has a close work related friend who is catholic, she does not know the bible very well and when she comes to visit she stays all day. She seems to be interested-no mesmerized- when hearing about God. She loves to talk to me about financial issues, she is a widow. Just recently found out she is catholic. She fell on a tile floor and knocked out some of her teeth. I guess you might want to pray for her, we have.

These threads have filled up with irrelevant nonsense lately. Now it's "anything you can do I can do better". Can we stick to the scriptural issues?

Or is this a by-product of the fact that the catholic cannot do that?

Good question. RCC priests should ask themselves this very question. Purgatory? Limbo? Worse?

The RCC's sheeple get shown for what they really are on topic after topic, with their only defense being lame deflections away from the rotting corpse of their church via ad hominem commentary about posts and posters that highlight their church's litany of failure throughout it's history.

It is most certainly not the church that started in Acts 2. Or Acts 9. Or anywhere else found in the Bible, including any of their 20+ versions of the Bible.

We all know only you have the ability to correctly interpret Scripture. And if you don't like these threads go somewhere else.

Tony Alamo tell you all that? Why don't you tell us the name of the church that started in Acts 2 or 9 and exactly where we can find one today. And how many protestant Bibles are there? If there are 50 English versions of the Bible that would mean 30 of them are protestant! But I've also seen there are 223 English versions...that would mean 203 protestant versions.
