Why do you NOT care?
You claim spiritual superiority because you possess perfect and infallible teachings.
DUH!!!!!!!!! So why don't you know what they are?
Every time anyone points out how "perfect teachings" have proven to be wrong, or have changed completely -- you and others claim they are not "official" teachings or whatever.
Stop being so goofy. If anyone else claimed to have "perfect teaching on morals," YOU would surely say "show me."
Ahhhh, get it yet?
Why would I comb over every single teaching to find out if its infallible? I don't understand you.

The CC is the one started by Christ. It was there in every decade since Jesus. I trust in Christ by trusting in the Church He left us.
I have not found them in error on any teaching. Then again, the only way I could try to find them in error, is to use their Bible against them - with my own personal opinion on it. That not right. its a sin.

Ah, so the light bulb finally went on, did it?

Anthony just saved you from falling into error....again.
We went through this with you the last time Ox was here.
Now I'm sure you'll be big enough and do the right thing by thanking Anthony for looking out for your soul.

By whom??? Under who's authority? Who determines who has such authority?
"Every preacher should expect his doctrines to be examined in this way, and to be rejected if they are not in accordance with the Word of God".
But according to you people, every person is their own authority to interpret the Bible. Who decides who's interpretation is wrong and who's is right?
But WHY does the RCC think it is the only religion authorized to properly interpret scriptures? Look at how they twist "...and Mary did not know Joseph til..." and YES, they've twisted the meaning of that, I don't care what anyone says. They're interested only in ruling and controlling, and they're WRONG about many things.

Grow up. You have zero proof and real-life says that the claim is absurd. You are no more spiritually superior than Cardinal Law.
You can believe all the anti-catholic "trash sources" of pollution that what you want!! It makes "absolutely no difference" to me or any other Catholic on this forum. Go argue with your other) 42,000+ bible only inconsistent Protestant "half-truth half-heresy" beliefs.

Hojo rants -- "nothing to discuss or debate"

I agree. You have no proof and only self-produced, biased "evidence."

The entire world looks at your evidence and says "no way."

Over 90% of practicing Catholics were born into the faith and had everything drilled into them since childhood.

Go for it, but never forget, this country was founded on Reformation ideals that you hate -- and even though you are free to leave for some Catholic "paradise," -- you refuse to leave.

Lots of talk, but zero walk.

Its bibical, they don't believe what the bible says.
The catholic's wrote their own bible its called the catechism that is what they follow.
Which goes against Gods Holy Scriptures; yet they take credit for giving the bible to the world.
Hmmm still trying to figure that one out.
And they equate their "Magisterium and Tradition" to the Word of God...

Clay writes -- "Why would I comb over every single teaching to find out if its infallible?"

You wouldn't have to do so, if your church were honest and gave you a list.

Question? What kind of con artist claims to have "perfect teachings --- but when asked to tell us what these amazing teachings are -- the con artist asks "why?"

Answer: a lousy con artist, who few believe.

2000 years after Jesus supposed appointed this church to spread the faith and save souls -- fewer than 5% of humanity are PRACTICING Catholics.

So according to Clay and his superior church of Perfect Teachings -- saving 5% is a good job and the largest child sex-abuse scandal in world history means nothing, just a few bad apples.

Imagine if this BS were not drilled into people since early childhood!!!

No one would believe it.

Sorry you are angry. I bear none. You must be confused if you think I am angry....

Truth, Beauty, Goodness. Transcendental qualities are the three legged stool.

Actually, God is All in all. But God is not Creation. God is the Creator. And that is where the three transcendental qualities which bring astonishment, not the Creation, but the Creator.

<quoted text>I don't know anything about the Crystal Cathedral sale to the RCC,and I cannot speculate about it.But the biggest problem is that no matter what can be said in either exposing more of what has happened in the CC concerning child molestation.OR the fact that an organization is confessing and trying to do all it can to end the scandal.
Either way,the results of what is either to be unleashed imformation,or the burden of dealing with an internal malady within the system,The CC can only mover forward and deal with each thing as it unravels. The cheap attacks of people against the CC on a constant basis,is no longer desire to see justice served,but to destroy the organization,which cannot succumb to that barage,because of what it is basically founded on to begin with.
That is the organization is too big and complexed to tear it down with blind attacks about the moral fiber of the whole organization at large.
The scandall has been addressed and faced head on by not only the Catholic Church but all of Christianity.We all know and understand that once sin is exposed,it loses its power over human beings.The Catholic Church knows that it has to face up to whatever has been surfaced concerning some of its priests,and the same applies to every facet of Christianity.
That actually does not stop the predator,as he is driven by sexual passion,and a boy or girl is still at risk,if such a perpetrator exists in the church even now.Do we blame the whole organization for that one person?
Who knows who he is until he strikes? When he is found out,the Church now is going to act accordingly,we have to give them the time and space now to comply with dealing heavily with that offender. In other words,Sin has been exposed on a grand scale,NOW the church can work with God in disposing of it within the Sanctuary.We Christians must allow those perpetrators to be incarcerated and punished by law as well.
the perpertrators and those who protected them need to be punished for both are guilty of a crime,the pope needs to step down and face his punishment.

lol. Now that is the funniest thing you ever uttered on here. You honestly think there will be a point when any of you guys say, "gee sola scripture really wasn't taught".
Heck no. You're going to your grave holding on to that false teaching that you consciously know is wrong.

I asked you to cite the quote from Mary. Find it and cite it.
Find and cite the instances of diplomatic immunity and who it's extended to.
Just back something, anything up with a fact. Once.
Lawyers for Pope Benedict XVI have asked US President George W. Bush to declare the pontiff immune from liability in a lawsuit that accuses him of conspiring to cover up the molestation of three boys by a seminarian in Texas, court records show.

The Vatican's embassy in Washington sent a diplomatic memo to the State Department on May 20 requesting the US government grant the pope immunity because he is a head of state, according to a May 26 motion submitted by the pope's lawyers in US District Court for the Southern Division of Texas in Houston.

Joseph Ratzinger is named as a defendant in the civil lawsuit. Now Benedict XVI, he's accused of conspiring with the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston to cover up the abuse during the mid-1990s. The suit is seeking unspecified monetary damages.

In Washington, US State Department spokeswoman Gerry Keener, said today that the pope already is considered a head of state and automatically has diplomatic immunity. Keener said Benedict doesn't have to ask for immunity and Bush doesn't have to grant it.
Pope Gelasius I was the first pope recorded as enjoying diplomatic immunity

Oxbow

Sorry. You have quoted something from somewhere, I know not....

NABRE

John 1:1

"In the beginning was the Word,

and the Word was with God,

and the Word was God."....

John 1:14

"And the Word became flesh

and made his dwelling among us,

and we saw his glory,

the glory as of the Father’s only Son,

full of grace and truth."

Thus, the Word was God and became flesh.

There is nothing of Hellenistic Philosophy, except the use of Greek as the language, nor is there any reference to Proverbs.

Word was God....Was in this case "As the definite or prepositive article (to be distinguished from the postpositive article — as it is called when it has the force of a relative pronoun, like the German der, die, das, examples of which use are not found in the N. T.), whose use in the N. T. is explained at length by Winers Grammar,§§ 18-20; Buttmann, 85 (74ff); (Green, p. 5ff). As in all languages the article serves to distinguish things, persons, notions, more exactly, it is prefixed"

and since the word "Was" has no modifer....

"to substantives that have no modifier; and those that designate a person or a thing that is the only one of its kind; the article thus distinguishes the same from all other persons or things...."

In short The Word was God, means the Word was God....

Similarly if we say, The Word is God, it means the Word is God.

It does not mean was becoming, or is becoming....
