The "Pope" confessing his sins?

The Roman Catholic church is pulling out all stops trying to make themselves look better, but in their attempts they actually keep showing their ignorance. Did any one notice the news about the "Pope" (supposedly the vicar of Christ on earth) bowing to a priest confessing his sins? They said this was the first "Pope" to ever do so. Does that mean all the other "Popes" were sinless?
Mt 23:8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.
9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

New Dad is pulling out all the stops to rebrand his company. By doing this, he makes himself appear to be just like one of his company's regular customers.

When the Board of Directors hired him to replace Old Dad, who was bringing down the company and hurting the brand, they realized that a complete PR makeover was long overdue.

The plan is working pretty well to date. The only real problems with New Dad have come as the result of his access to Twitter. It looks like that problem has gotten fixed though.

You read an article like you do the Bible. What ever what you want to believe. Every Christian including Popes have had the sacrament of confession since Jesus created it, until the 1500s.

Thats one of the things you protesters changed. Now you follow what a former priest name Luther invented. Change confess your sins to one another to some sort of sinners pray that is not in the Bible.

i will stay with what Jesus taught

You are not a mediator or co-mediator.What does this say my dear cultic friend? 1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; That leaves you out and Mary and others of the dead. Catholics spend more time on their knees praying to the dead and the Pope that they do to the real Savior and mediator between them and God.

You only know what Catholics do based on what your mommy and daddy and your preacher man told you. And their mommy and daddy and preacher man told them.

So you don't pray for people. That is sad.

Even Jesus wouldn't pray for those in the world. Especially ones teaching false doctrines like the Catholic church.

Joh 17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

2Jo 1:10 ΒΆ If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

My only prayer would be that you come out of that man-made church and obey the truth.

I pray fpr people but I do not pray to people.
1. Do Catholics pray to Mary?
2. Do Catholics believe Mary is co-mediator between man and God?
3. Do Catholics pray to dead saints for healing?
You are very childish in your responses. If you cannot answer "No" to any of those three questions then perhaps you could explain how a "Yes"answer aligns scripturally with the verse I gave. I hope you refrain from hostility and respond directly to the questions I ask. It would be greatly appreciated.

I am glad you admit you are a co-mediator in that you pray for people. You are intervening between that person and God.
1. no. we dont pray to Mary
2. yes we ask Mary to intervene. Jesus does that for Mary. A good example is in the Bible.
3. No we ask Saints who are alive in heaven to pray for us.

Hostility? Because I don't agree with you? You just called me childish. Who is hostile?

Deception and diversion is a great tool used by Satan and the Catholics seem to fall right there. Both seem to use scripture only when needed. Why have you not answered that scripture with you claim the RCC has more authority than scripture?

The Bible nowhere mentions the NT. No scripture there to answer with.

The Church is the pillar and foundation of truth.

The Church existed 350 years before the canon of the Bible was decided on.

People were saved by the Church before any NT scripture was written.

Jesus gave Peter the Keys to the KIngdom.

Jesus never prophesied a book.

The Church created the Bible.

Prayer to St Joseph

Oh, St. Joseph,
whose protection is so strong,
so great, so prompt before the throne of God,
I place in you all my interests and desires.
Oh, St Joseph,
do assist me by your powerful intercession,
and obtain from your Divine Son for me
all spiritual blessings through Christ Our Lord,
so that, having engaged here below your Heavenly Power,
I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.

Oh, St. Joseph, I never weary of contemplating you,
and Jesus asleep in your arms.
I dare not approach while He reposes near your Heart.

Press Him in my name,
and kiss His fine head for me
and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath.

St. Joseph, Patron of Departing souls, pray for me.

Amen.

How can this not be considered praying to Joseph? Patron of departing souls? Is this better than praying to Jesus? Do you ever pray to Jesus? I don't see a prayer listed to Jesus.
