Yesterday, a well-known ‘Pastor’ in the Ridgeway Virginia, in a private meeting, stated that he wouldn’t speak on many issues at his Church because stepping on toes would stop the tithes. I lost much respect for him. He rather have his almighty dollar coming in than teach what he believes is from the Holy Bible. He also refuses to tell what all he stands for and pretty much accepts people no matter what they believe. He told me as long as somebody didn’t disrupt service he would let each person draw their won conclusion on things. Okay, that sounds good to most people. What really is behind this is that he don’t want to step on toes. He said stepping on toes would stop the tithes. He said this word for word. I have no respect for him whatsoever

What is new about this? He is a Protestant right? Men appointed him didnt they? He has a family to feed doesnt he? That is prime example where clergy should not be married and the Church should appoint the Pastor, not the members who only want to hear what they believe.

Bobby might have a better answer. He goes to a Bible church were you can believe anything you want.

There are prot pastors around here who have been working at the same church for 30 plus years. Their wives are on the payroll too. No way are they going to risk messing up their careers.

So? That's common knowledge and some even know pig latin. I'll bet there are more prots who speak in tongues in Henry County Virginia than there are in the entire Catholic Church!

We are talking about divisions in the catholic church not the protestants.

Do you speak in tongues, if not why not?

From the CCC:

799 Whether extraordinary or simple and humble, charisms are graces of the Holy Spirit which directly or indirectly benefit the Church, ordered as they are to her building up, to the good of men, and to the needs of the world.

800 Charisms are to be accepted with gratitude by the person who receives them and by all members of the Church as well. They are a wonderfully rich grace for the apostolic vitality and for the holiness of the entire Body of Christ, provided they really are genuine gifts of the Holy Spirit and are used in full conformity with authentic promptings of this same Spirit, that is, in keeping with charity, the true measure of all charisms.253

801 It is in this sense that discernment of charisms is always necessary. No charism is exempt from being referred and submitted to the Church's shepherds. "Their office [is] not indeed to extinguish the Spirit, but to test all things and hold fast to what is good,"254 so that all the diverse and complementary charisms work together "for the common good."255

We will soon add another Christian to the world. Another granddaughter was born this week and I can't wait to bring her to Jesus just like he commanded.

Why don't you guys just go to hospitals and baptize all the new borns-if that is all it takes. If you guys could accomplish that you could save the whole world, right? Of course they will have to go through purgatory before they are actually saved, right?

I don't that charism.

And about 99% of the people who pretend to have it don't.
