Poor people exist, because of many reasons.

- social status
- born into poverty
- unable to excel into a higher level of income
- government tactics

All of these are searchable on the internet.

"Further abuses against the Amerindians committed by Spanish authorities were denounced by Catholic missionaries such as Bartolomé de Las Casas and Francisco de Vitoria which led to debate on the nature of human rights[43] and the birth of modern international law. Enforcement of these laws was lax, and some historians blame the Church for not doing enough to liberate the Indians; others point to the Church as the only voice raised on behalf of indigenous peoples."

"Moral Truth" = pedophilia and covering it up.

The bible is read more in a Catholic mass than in almost all protestant services. In fact, the mass is ALL bible. You should leave the cult you're in and learn about Catholicism.
Disagree.

There are many parts of the mass that are not in the Bible.

Namely - the priest's Homily is of his own concoction and only references what was read from the Bible.

You really don't understand your religion, huh?

Speaking about the Bible, is different than saying what you did, "the whole mass is in the Bible."

You really need to learn not to twist words around to the way you want them to be, which will give you understanding of your own delusion.

The Church has DAILY Mass, DAILY as in every single day of the year. The entire Mass is scriptural. We don't bring our Bibles to Mass with us as there are missals that contain all the scripture readings and prayers already in the pews. The scripture readings are read aloud, which in itself is scriptural:
17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Remember, Christ never told anyone to write anything down.
Speaking of Christ, do you believe He's God?
you need to remember that you and other catholics on here and been shown numerous times that Yes Jesus DID TELL SOMONE TO WRITE HIS WORDS DOWN.

": Eric, you have no business quoting from the Bible to disprove the Catholic faith when it was the Catholic Church who gave you the Bible. This is the brash arrogance of Protestant Christians, who are ignorant of history and twist the Scriptures to their own destruction. I call it “spoiled brat Christianity.” You despise the very Mother who gave you the Scriptures. The Bible is indeed the Word of God, but you only know that because the Catholic Church told you so. How do you know what books should be in the Bible when the Bible doesn't tell you? You only know it because the Catholic Church definitively declared the Bible canon at the end of the fourth century.

If the Bible canon is necessary for our salvation, but Christ did not reveal it to His apostles, then Christ must have established an authority that would guarantee the early Christians' determination of the Bible canon after He ascended into heaven. This authority is the Holy Catholic Church.

There was no Bible as you know it for 400 years after Christ's death, and it wasn't even distributed for 1500 years after His death. If the Bible is the only way to get us to heaven, then what happened to those millions of poor souls who never had a Bible during the 1500 year period? Eric, you need to get familiar with basic history. Jesus Christ established a Church to proclaim the good news. He never intended on having the Bible be the sole infallible guide for the Christian faith. This is why the Catholic Church is one, and your Protestant denominations are 30,000.

The Catholic Church wrote, translated, copied, and preserved God's written word throughout the ages. That is the only reason you even have a Bible. Quit trying to interpret the Scriptures without the Church, because it is the Bible in the Church, the Church before the Bible, the Bible and the Church (both or neither)."

Get real?
Since when did the Catholic church ever teach anything that was real?
Your church's priests only teach what the pope tells them to teach, and it's the same thing over and over and over ...
-
The Bible says to do it differently.
-
The Bible says to search the scriptures everyday to see if the church leaders are doing things according to God's word.

Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.

You can keep the Sabbath on Saturday if you want, nobody's giving you any grief over it.
However, are you ok with Christians designating Sunday as our day of worship?
Im OK with Christians keeping everyday for worship. However the weekly Sabbath if from sunset Friday til sunset Saturday the 7TH Day of the week that was setr apart and we are to acknowledge that it is Jesus Christ who is Lord of the Sabbath in whom our eternal rest lies through out eterninty. After the mellinium rest with Christ for a thousand years then is the judgement before we enter what would be refered to as the 8th day or a New day where there is neither night or day and we will be forever with the Lord.

Go back and look at your post to which I was responding. It was full of misconceptions about Catholicism. I promise I won't call your ecclesial community a cult if you promise to ask about our faith instead making false and uniformed statements.
