I'm confused Dan.
In 1782, neither the new USA nor the RCC officially opposed slavery as morally wrong.
My question is simply this. Which of the two proclaimed themselves "perfect in teachings on morals?"
That's a small detail that you always seem to forget. Maybe you could remind us.
Forget that small detail... again?
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Well, the Church beat the USA in condemning it, and you set forth that "refromation ideals" were superior. You were wrong.

I think we just don't care enough about it. In MN or anywhere in this part of the country, I don't believe a Church exist that displays the body or bones of a dead Saint. You said it was in AZ? Fine I believe you. Its just something I never heard of around here. Not a big deal. Frankly, I would love to see the bones of Saint Peter or Paul even for just an historical appreciation.

Thanks for that info. I guess I never paid much attention to it. I still am not very interested, but at least I know now of Churches with saints on display.
I prayed in front of the stone that was removed from the Apostle Pauls tomb and displayed at the Cathedral of Saint Paul. It was very moving since I was the only one present. There was a closeness for sure.
Clay you just have to punch in just one name on that list and you will find the site I thought I gave the link.
I am amazed at the way some of them are so well preserved.

Identify the Church in question, in Tuscon, AZ, where someone's bones were on display under glass in an enclave.
Um, preston, you failed to cite where the Mission in Tucson houses relics (a guy in glass made of bones).

So, you're wrong. I cited an abundance of source material on the place and no mention of relics housed there.

This is a load of rubbish. These so-called saints originate with the Roman Calendar of Gods.


The Hierarchy of the Roman Empire now called the Roman Church


Roman Empire offices & their modern names:

Roman Empire (Imperium Romanum) renamed: Roman Catholic Church.

Curia (legal body of Senators) slight name change: Curia (legal body of Cardinals).

Roman Emperor renamed: Roman Pope (head of all church and state affairs).

Roman College of Senators renamed: College of Cardinals.

The Roman Calender and Holy Days of the gods renamed: Calendar Holidays of the Saints.

Legal act of creating a god (of a living or dead human, as was done to most of the Caesars) "Apotheosis of the Gods" renamed: Canonization of the Saints.

A decree of Caesar (dictator for life): Pope's infalliable Papal Bull.

Praying to a dead human god renamed: Praying to a saint.

In the US the highest law of the land is the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in the Vatican State the Constitution is called the Code of Canon Law.

Your turn to provide a link. When did the RCC condemn slavery?

It was a state issue at the time and many states condemned slavery before the RCC.

Also, I re-stated "the ideals which grew from the Reformation." But of course, you only have those word games.

Or, you could easily move to a society that embraced RCC ideals, like Mexico maybe.

Nope, better to play word games than to walk your crazy talk. I understand.

The clear inference made is that the media somehow informed their opinion on whether the acts in question were wrong.

Obviously, the cleric in the article is thanking the media for helping them in their efforts to deal with the issue. He isn't crediting them with moral instruction by telling them it was wrong to begin with.

The only ideals you mentioned as being "ideals which grew from the Reformation" dealt with US civil law precepts. Sorry-you mentioned them. Was I supposed to read your mind if you meant otherwise? You ran it more than once.

When I visited the Roman Catholic Church in Gettysburg Pa..

FOR MY NEPHEWS WEDDING...

I felt out of place..THE PLACE WAS FOREBODING .

I could not comprehend that those that

call themselves Christians would GO TO SUCH EXTREMES TO BE

diametrically apposed to the COMMANDMENTS OF GOD......

THE STATUES AND GRAVEN IMAGES....CREATED AN ERIE ATMOSPHERE OF A PAGAN

TEMPLE.

THE BIRD THAT WAS PORTRAYED ON THE PODIUM ...

(with the appearance of AN Egyptian ibis)

was especially inappropriately displayed in a place that supposed to

be a House of prayer.

Reminds me of the words of the Apostle Paul..

Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

ALSO THE words of Jesus...WHEN HE WAS INSULTED AND UPSET AT THE DISPLAY THAT WAS IN THE HEAVENLY FATHERS HOUSE...

Mat_21:13 And said unto them, It is written,-->My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Mar_11:17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written,--> My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Luk_19:46 Saying unto them, It is written,---> My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.

That's refreshing. Now maybe they will demand the same from their church?
The ten tons of bones of St Paul should all have the same DNA, right?
Or maybe the Catholics here need and want to believe the RCC fraud. After all, regardless of DNA, how many tons of bones did St. Paul have?
We don't need to believe anything about authenticity of relics. For some reason, you get fixated on stupid stuff.
I said a bone fragment. Not a leg.

As for your USA Protestant ideals you boast about?
I don't think id be too proud of that mess. But a guy like would see abortion as a successful measure of woman's rights. Your ideals are ruining this society from within, only you're too stuck on self to see it.

<quoted text>
Why are you diverting from answering the question?
Let's try it again.
Do you now find Luke more enlightened than Jesus?
Why don't you believe in all of what Jesus taught?
In logic, there is a principle called the Law of the Excluded Middle. Simply stated, it is this: a thing must either be, or not be, the case. A line is either straight, or it is not. There is no middle position. Applied to the Bible, one therefore might declare: The Scriptures are either inspired of God, or they are not inspired of God. If the writings of the Bible are not inspired of God, then they are the mere productions of men, and as such would merit no religious respect.

Paul wrote:“Every scripture is inspired of God, and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be complete, furnished completely unto every good work”(2 Timothy 3:16-17).

It is quite clear that the penmen of Scripture were conscious of the fact that they were recording the words of God. Paul wrote:“I received of the Lord that which I also delivered unto you”(1 Corinthians 11:23). Again,“This we say unto you by the word of the Lord”(1 Thessalonians 4:15).“When you received from us the word of the message, even the word of God, you accepted it not as the word of men, but, as it is in truth, the word of God, which also works in you that believe”(1 Thessalonians 2:13). When Philip preached in Samaria, those people to whom he spoke had heard “the word of God”(Acts 8:14).

In one passage, Paul asked:“For who among men knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of the man, which is in him?” He means this: you cannot know what is in my mind until I, by my words, reveal to you what I am thinking. That is the apostle’s illustration. Here is his point.“Even so the things of God none knoweth, save the Spirit of God...which things (the things of God) we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Spirit teacheth; combining spiritual things with spiritual words”(1 Corinthians 2:11-13). There is not a more comprehensive statement of verbal inspiration to be found anywhere in the holy writings. The mind of God has been made known by means of the inspired words of those representatives whom He chose for that noble task.

The biblical writers considered one another’s productions to be inspired of God. In 1 Timothy 5:18, Paul writes:“For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn. And, The laborer is worthy of his hire.” In this passage, the apostle has combined Deuteronomy 25:4 and Luke 10:7, and classified them both as “scripture.” Similarly, Peter refers to Paul’s epistles as “scripture” in 2 Peter 3:15-16.

To answer your last question, I believe everything that Jesus taught. Jesus Christ promised His apostles that the words of their gospel declaration would be given them. He told them:“But when they deliver you up, be not anxious how or what you shall speak; for it shall be given you in that hour what you shall speak”(Matthew 10:19). And, note Luke’s parallel that they were not to “meditate beforehand” how to answer their antagonists (Luke 21:14).

I personally exalt the Holy Scriptures as the living Word of God (Hebrews 4:12), therefore if Luke's writings were inspired by God I could not say they were more or less enlightened than Jesus' teachings because they were Jesus' teachings.

To try to prove otherwise would be to find contradiction where, if the scriptures are in fact inspired, none exists.

Typically if we think we've found contradiction it is our faulty interpretations not taking into account the full context. In those instances, we need to take a step back and look at the audience being spoken to (i.e. was the church in existence?) and determine when the teaching was taking place and to whether the one's being taught were already in the church or not.

I just googled this so look at what this person says{about a hill}lol.

“Laid-back slice of history”
Reviewed 16 February 2013 You can take a guided tour of the premises, but you don't have to wait if you want to show yourself around. Peaceful cathedral and grounds. Free admission, although donations are always accepted. Gift shop, museum.

Take a short hike up the hill. It's under different ownership, but you're free to wander up there.

There is a fascinating cemetery on the way, but the Tohono O'odham thank you for not photographing it.
