CATHOLIC TRADITION - Confessing sins to a priest. Petitioning saints and Mary.
WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS - We are to confess our sins and needs to God alone.
I John
1:9 If we confess our sins, he [God] is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. No need for purgatory!!!!
1 Timothy
2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus [not Mary, not saints, not priests, not the pope];
I John 2:1,...And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
In the Lord's Prayer found in Matthew chapter 6, we are told to ask God to forgive us of our debts. Our Father in heaven is the one that forgives us.
Unfortunately, the Bible says nothing of "Confessing sins to a priest. Petitioning saints and Mary." That's a teaching of men, not from God or by God. Understand the difference?

Hi Jethro - hope you are doing well with your treatment - but we're not here to dicuss that. Just be positive and I do hope you pass any ordeal with flying colors.
Anyhow - Jesus never wrote anything down, so "hoho's" statement is false.
Secondly, I don't belong to any organization or have an affiliation with any public religious belief. My beliefs are mine and I'm the only one, who has developed them over the past many years. Many people (and I mean many) don't agree with them - but am I supposed to care if they do? Not at all.
It's not their life to worry about.
But if I had to answer your question:
"i don't know what church you attend,but if they came out and made the claim of being the true church,would you believe them?"
- In truth, many people do say this "vague" saying. And IMO - it is just to appease their own relationship with their organization (a choice they made), although it doesn't mean it is true. That is actually one of the few reasons why I've stayed on this forum as long as I have, all the while taking the brunt of the 'remarks' by others. If the comments are any indication of the person who is posting them, then anyone can plainly see, that in the least, this religion is not needed for "salvation". It is very blatant here.
Basically, men will give you this to do, or that to do, or even say the things you want to hear, but in a nutshell, it isn't about what they honestly think you are feeling, it is only what they feel, and about the bottom line of money and followers.
As far as I am concerned and IMO, no "loving God" has a calculator and is counting "His" followers or money....only men do. And these individuals do it for profit, greed, and vanity - namely the RCC.
Organize religion is a farce within a fallacy.
Thanks for responding.
what you are doing is correct,staying away from these false religious groups,do you really need to pay someone to tell you what the bible says?i've read many of your posts and going by them,you seem to be an intelligent person,not one that needs to be told on how to read something and what it means in "their" opinion.it is not hard to read and figure out the bible,after all it is nothing more than a collection of stories taken from different sources over the centuries,and created for profit by man,this where we differ,you most likely believe in the one god theory where as i do not,reason being, i have not seen any undeniable proof that there is a god,going by just one source that makes a claim he exists is not enough,for me there has to be a corroborating source,and lets face it there is none.I to have my own believes and get ridiculed on here for them,don't care,if i'm wrong,show that i'm wrong,show me true history outside of the bible,this is all true.

The Apostle Paul wrote Timothy...
2Ti 2:13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
2Ti 2:14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.

Your "PROFAIN AND VAIN BABBLINGS" are with out scriptural reference or validation.
Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
What you post is not the Word of God...nor is it His stated will given in His word.
God's word does teach cannibalism...(physically consuming the flesh and blood of Jesus.}
In the original Passover ...the blood of the Pascal lamb was symbolically substituted for each family and placed upon the doorpost of their dwellings...
It was not human Blood...It was A TYPE of the Blood of Jesus THAT
would be sacrificed....
as the Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the world.
The apostles did not physically eat the flesh nor drink the blood of Jesus in the upper room.
Jesus gave the Apostles
fermented grape juice and unleavened bread,
which was symbolic of the mutilation sufferings and death ...
His vicarious sacrifice for our sins..
Communion is also symbolic ...IT SHOWS FORTH HIS DEATH TILL HE RETURNS...
IT IS DONE IN REMEMBRANCE OF HIS DEATH...
LIFE IS IN THE BLOOD..
Each time you ....PHYSICALLY... DRINK THE BLOOD OF JESUS AND EAT HIS FLESH...YOU TAKE HIS LIFE AWAY AGAIN,.... CRUCIFYING HIM AFRESH...
CAN YOU NOT...UNDERSTAND THE DISTINCTION...
BETWEEN THE PHYSICAL AND THE SPIRITUAL...
gods word is not important,only catholic tradition and the money you pay to hear that tradition is important.

POPE HOJO,you are full of it,there is no Sacred Apostolic Church History,because there is no true apostolic church,i have proven that over and over,why do you refuse to take the blinders off??

Boy Scouts abuse cases echo Catholic Church, Penn State scandals

One BIG difference....
Neither the Boy Scouts nor Penn State claim to be (1) appointed by God,(2) uniquely guided by God, and (3) a source of perfect teachings on morals.
Another BIG difference....
The Boy Scouts and Penn State have acted in a more open and moral manner in addressing the terrible, soul-wrenching mortal sin of child-sex abuse.
Nearly every day, the real world tells us that something is amiss with the Vatican's "one true" claim.
".... for ye shall know them by their deeds."
when i heard about the boy scout scandal,i found that surprising, my nephew was a victim of a troop leader,and when my sister brought it to the attention of the association,they immediately took action,they reported it to the police questioned my nephew and another boy that was involved arrested the guy and he only got 3 yr term,my family did not tell me of this,i over heard a conversation between my sister and mother,and i confronted them about it,hounded my sister till i got a name and possible places i could find this guy when he got out of prison,spent two years hunting for him,couldn't find him,my sister recieved a letter from the police dept. telling her that the man was found in NY. dead of a drug overdose,i was nopt sorry to hear that,i am sorry it was not me that sent him to his grave....i find it very surprising and shocking they would cover this up.needless to say the boyscouts will go the same way as the catholic church,slowly fade away.

You can't just pick up the book and interpret verse chapter verse word for word. That's just stupidity. It wasn't written like that so you shouldn't read it like that.
