How?

Simple - don't read the posts.

But believe me when I say this, if you dwell in the dismay of the post, you'll never get to see it turn to astonishment.

Evolution is a fact, not a theory. But within that milieu is the question of whether the universe had a beginning, or whether it always existed.

Evolution is a theory, not a fact.(In general we accept it because we were taught it in school. But science is completely overturned about every 8-10 years in college now. Most of what we were taught years ago were bogus theories, and interpretted data. And it still is.)

It, as well as cosmology has theories. So many theories, that there is so much confusion by scientists, they have lost common sense.

(Most scientists in the field of evolution, agree there are no facts, no data. It is a patched-up mess, as well as cosmology.)

Catholics read and hear The Word at Mass daily/weekly !!!!!!
FYI
"he Catholic Bible far outsells all other Christian Bibles worldwide. In fact, it has
always been thus. The very first Christian Bible
was produced by the Catholic Church – compiled by
Catholic scholars of the 2nd and 3rd century and
approved for general Christian use by the Catholic
Councils of Hippo (393) and Carthage (397). The very first printed Bible was produced under the auspices of the Catholic Church – printed by the Catholic inventor of the printing press, Johannes Gutenberg. And the very first Bible with chapters and numbered verses was produced by the Catholic Church – the work of Stephen Langton, Cardinal Archbishop of Canterbury. It was this perennial Catholic devotion to the Bible which prompted
Martin Luther – who certainly cannot be accused of Catholic favoritism – to write in his
Commentary on St. John: "We are compelled to concede to the Papists that they have the
Word of God, that we received it from them, and that without them we should have no
knowledge of it at all."
Here's a revelation: what I wrote can out of scripture, are you going to refute the Word of God?

2 Corinthians 10:12-18

Not that we dare to classify or compare ourselves with some of those who are commending themselves. But when they measure themselves by one another and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding. But we will not boast beyond limits, but will boast only with regard to the area of influence God assigned to us, to reach even to you. For we are not overextending ourselves, as though we did not reach you. For we were the first to come all the way to you with the gospel of Christ. We do not boast beyond limit in the labors of others. But our hope is that as your faith increases, our area of influence among you may be greatly enlarged, so that we may preach the gospel in lands beyond you, without boasting of work already done in another's area of influence.

The act of legitimately speaking in tongues was. Just because someone says its a language does not mean it is. Its never been proven that the new Pentecostal movement is doing anything other than gibberish. Its not too hard, Preston, to figure out if an actual language is being spoken or a 'ga bla googy ga de jebudie doo doo'
Sadly, self induced convincing is the culprit here.
as I have said numerous times, my friend Tom was praying one night and began to speak in tongues. the woman that he was praying for/with, understood what he was saying as it was in her native language which was Vietnamese.

however saying that, I do agree that some of this phenomenon is not as accurate as what Tom had told to me. So, If God was able to do that in Pentecost, He still is able to do it today. He hasn't changed, only people change or try to change His Word.

and I thought of this yesterday, if you or I were there on that very Special Day, someone would have been speaking to us in English, so we would have known what had happened, just as those visitors heard

They're as nuts as the day is long.
the TWO people that agreed with you are as clueless as you are reg. you cant call her a liar unless that you know her and know the facts behind her story, WHICH YOU DONT! that makes you a person who spreads false info without factual proof. It is commonly called a Gossiper, or in our neck of the woods, a woman who speaks over her laundry while it is hanging on a clothesline, and around here that aint complimentary

Enjoy!
Interesting site. It just goes to show you how widespread it really is, but the majority of those cases resulted in convictions. The problem with the Catholic Church is they just transferred the perpetrators (priests) to another parish. Sexual abusers are repeat offenders.

Your Pope suggests that you should 'guess' again.
Pertinent to the monsters within the Holy Roman Catholic Church that carried out sexual abuse on children, Your Pope says that what they did was terrible and that they will be judged for it if not here on earth, then for sure once they die.
Mind you, that over the 2000 years that have followed Our Lord Jesus Christ, hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of Popes, Cardinals, Bishops, Priests, Monks, Brothers, Sisters, Laypeople have given their kindness, care, compassion, monies, time, medicines, attention, teachings, comfort to the poor, sick, destitute, the blind and the insane. For you to take a small minority of this group and blatantly 'smear' the whole with your hateful references only goes to show the kind of mentality that there is in this world. Do you teach your children in like-fashion? Because if you do, you are on the road to perdition.
Predominately, child sexual abuse takes place within the family but you should spend some of your time studying what is going on in the world of sports, schooling, universities, and especially entertainment. Youths are being 'bought' from parents by drug addicts and 'sold' to evil men.
Save us, Savior of the world for by your Cross and Resurrection, you have set us free.

What is the difference if priests were moved from one perish to another, compared to one minister staying in the same church to molest again and again?

The children don't see the difference, as none of the adults care to protect the children. They would rather protect the priests and the ministers and pretend that their religious institutions are capable of leading others on a moral path of righteousness.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but pentecostals accept as valid the re-marriage of a divorced person. Your denomination says that adultery or abandonment by an unbelieving spouse is grounds for divorce and re-marriage.
The Catholic Church does not allow "re-marriage" as it is contrary to Christ's teaching.
The Catholic Church does not allow a divorced Catholic to remarry? Is that in the Church? Honest question.

You wouldn’t have a Bible if it were not for the first Christians called Catholics!!
The Bible is a Catholic Book
http://www.cegguam.org/TalksAndHomilies/sray/...
"Christ did not say, "Sit down and write Bibles and scatter them over the earth, and let
every man read his Bible and judge for himself." If Christ had said that, there would never
have been a Christianity on the earth at all, but a Babylon and confusion instead, and
never ONE Church, the union of ONE body. Hence, Christ never said to His Apostles, "Go and write Bibles and distribute them, and let everyone judge for himself." That
injunction was reserved for the Sixteenth Century, and we have seen the result of it. Ever
since the Sixteenth Century there have been springing up religion upon religion, and churches upon churches, all fighting and quarreling with one another, and all because of the private interpretation of the Bible.
Christ sent His Apostles with authority to teach all nations, and never gave them any
command of writing the Bible. And the Apostles went forth and preached everywhere,
and planted the Church of God throughout the earth, but never thought of writing.”
Acts 11:26
And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

As her following poem indicated ... from a very early age my daughter wanted to leave the earth and her body. She had three major operations by the time she was seven years of age ... and neither her emotional, nor her physical suffering was going to end ... so she ended it herself.

She believed she was going to the "light."

If takes a cold-hearted person to harshly judge those who commit suicide.

With The Eagle.

I long with the eagle, on swift silent wing
To glide o’er the earth and of freedom to sing
Released from the bonds of this earthbound plight
To master the grace of his effortless flight

To ravish the glorious sunrise unfurled
From high on a cliff, at the top of the world
To observe far below, life’s dramas unfold
To hold in your grasp nature’s mysteries untold

Silence descends as day draws to a close
Westward the sun hangs in hazy repose
Suspended within a rosy-hued sky
The eagle is solemn, with watchful eye

Though my body be bound by earthly ties
In mind and spirit with the eagle I rise
To ponder the drama of life far below
Wild and free with the eagle I go

My ex-husband and I were married in the Catholic Church. He later annulled our marriage so he could marry his girlfriend in the Catholic Church (which he did).

Georges Minois … History of Suicide … Voluntary Death in Western Culture … Translated by Lydia G. Cochrane. First published in 1995.

“To be or not to be?” they insist, is by no means the question. If we exist it is because we must exist in order to glorify God and to make ourselves useful in society. Anyone who rejects that rule deserves punishment, both of the dead body and in the afterlife. This attitude reigned supreme and uncontested in Europe throughout the Middle Ages.

Well, we agree on some issues and others ... not.

I believe it's healthy to look at issues from many ways, and when people are in religion, how they believe rules every other thought in their lives ... and that is NOT healthy.

A Muslim tying a bomb to his/her self and believing that when the bomb explodes and kills many people ... he/she will be blessed by Allah in a hereafter ... is not a healthy perspective whatsoever.

All the ancient religions taught that killing others was not only necessary, but that it was HOLY if done by the will of the gods.

Religion is not good.
