Gee, you'd think it would involve more than 2% of its members then. Something fishy is going on Free. Are you sure you're not just blowing this topic up to make it seem like its worse than what it is? Perhaps you are biased towards the Church due to a clash with your lifestyle?

<quoted text>March 1955, a man by the name of Carl died, a few minutes late he came back to life, and he described what he saw in heaven and who talked to him, to a young boy of 12 years old.
I was that young Boy, he was my Grandfather, those he said talked to him were among the "greats in heaven"(his words, not mine).
like the rich man he {saw}, except in his expeirence, what he saw was beautiful.and he described it to me.
and he heard them talking to him, and He told me what they told him, which was this, tell the young boy that God has a job to do for Him.and in Aug, 1982, as a sinner, I cried out to God an asked Him when I was going to do that Job. He answered in a miracleous way, and a few Days later, I was saved. and in 11984, He called me to preach.
Knowing all of this, I certainly am not going to believe you or anyone else, I will lean on the Light that God has given me

MICHAEL says.....OK cowboy, tells us what heaven looks like? Tell us how he got there. Tell us how far away it it. Tell us where it is. Tell us who he saw and what they looked like?

I am sure there are Muslims who have said they too have died and gone to heaven and returned, and they probably describe God wearing a turbin.

Let's settle this truth once and for all: It is the nearness of God that produces our good. Christianity was never designed by God to be sustained by nice people trying to appear good. We're not that good. We're not that clever. And we're not that nice. The only thing that can sustain true Christianity is true union with Jesus Christ. It is nearness to Him in all things that produces our spiritual fruit.

If we are honest, we will admit that, apart from the influence and work of God, there is nothing morally superior or remarkably virtuous about our lives.
Our flesh has the same carnal passions as do people in the world; our soul carries within it the same insecurities and fears.
Thus, apart from the influence of Christ in us, there's no difference between Christians and non-Christians (except that Christians, when living separate from God's presence, can be more obnoxious).

It's only our relationship with the Lord that keeps us from fulfilling the lusts and desires of the flesh, for apart from Him we can do nothing (John 15:5).
Therefore, the strength of our walk does not originate from within ourselves; rather it comes from our relationship with Christ.
Our virtue, if it can be defined as such, is that we have learned to prioritize seeking God; our character is the offspring of our oneness with Jesus.

By this I mean, Jesus is not only first on our list of priorities; His influence rules over all our priorities.
He inspires love in our relationships;
His voice becomes the conviction in our integrity. God has made "Christ Jesus" to be to us "wisdom … and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption" (1 Cor. 1:30).

Thus, the God-seeker desires to find the Lord's pleasure drawn to every aspect of his soul.
He also knows that, should an area of his heart exist in isolation from God, he will remain vulnerable to manipulation by the enemy in that area.

So let me underscore the psalmist's truth, and let us say with our own voice of conviction: it is the nearness of our God that is our good.

You phony. I already called you out last week on your absurd claims. But like a good and dedicated bigot, you ignored it and carried on. You fool no one but yourself.(and I gotta imagine that's easy to do)
There has always been abuse in every group that every existed.. in the history of use world.

Start with that fact, then you'll see how stupid you are for singling out the CC.

Also, I can barely type the word 'child sex'. I have no idea how you and Free manage to type 14 times a day for two yrs straight!

I don't follow your reasoning for pasting these links. These are official documents FORBIDDING sexaul abuse and the PUNISHMENTS for doing it. It seems to me that the Church has actually made concerted efforts to make rules AGAINST it. If they never taught against it or said it was ok you might have a point.

The fact that it still happens is really just a result of the human condition. The bible warns against sinning, but Christians still sin. Your issue should be with the Christian faith because people continue to sin.

Roman Catholic Vatican spokesman FEDERICO LOMBARDI says....

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-05-24/vati...

http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/a-...

Previous money laundering scandal by the VATICAN BANK 1982......

The catholic institute is no stranger to scandal. The roman catholic church bank was implicated in the fraudulant bankruptcy of Banco Abrosianio in 1982. The banks former chairman Roberto Calvi, dubbed GODS banker was found hanged.

The VATICAN paid $240 MILLION! to compensate Ambrosianos account holders.

You don't remember this back in 1982???

This is a report that Mike and his buddy Freemind DON'T want to see;

"According to CARA, here are the numbers of accusations involving a current minor that were even deemed "credible" each year from 2005 to 2011:

Year /# of accusations

2011 7
2010 8
2009 6
2008 10
2007 4
2006 14
2005 9

Meanwhile, according to government numbers, in 2010 alone, there were some 63,527 reported cases of child sexual abuse in the United States – an alarming societal problem that has received scant media attention."

http://www.themediareport.com/fast-facts/

In 2011 there were 7 credible accusations out of roughly 40,000 priests. That's about 0.000175%. It should be zero, but it's certainly well below the average for the secular and protestant communities. Looks like the Church is doing a pretty good job of stopping it.

There are some here in this forum that would disagree...as they are always flouting their perfection..and the perfections of their Church...

The problem with this is...

The more they attempt to portray and boast of their perfections and that of their Church....the more they reveal their own imperfections and draw attention to the problems and errors of their their churches .

When a man is charged with raping a woman you just say thats just human condition? No big deal. UNBELIEVABLE!

The canon laws and papal documents and there are MANY! from the 3rd century onward its OBVIOUS the church NEVER got this problem under control or it would have been stopped in 309 AD, or 414 AD or 501 AD, and if you read the top right hand column of this forum catholic priests today in 2013 are still being caught.

Why so many sexual deviants in religious organizations? Why do you make excuses saying its just part of the human condition?

You should be shouting from the rooftops......Where has the accountability been, and how many thousands of victims went to their graves in agony because even their own parents wouldn't believe clergy were capable of harming or covering up these most serious crimes....

STOP MAKING EXCUSES......That just makes you a conspirator.....

The guilty priests never paid. The lieing Bishops never paid, the catholics who molested no one sitting in the pews are PAYING!

.......and they continue to call me names but afraid to attack who really caused this problem in the first place. Their own.
