That wasn't an insult....that was a direct assessment of what LTM did, when she shouldn't be doing it.

Are you a forum monitor?

If so, maybe you should be monitoring more and responding less?

Really June, is this you stance?

Maybe if you take yourself out of a sincle quotation book and actually read some of the material you posit, you woul better understadn the meanings around what you post.

I would never believe the theologians, and that is what kept me asking questions rather than settling for supposed answers.

It always bothered me that the theologians couldn't agree on dogmas, yet always claimed to know the answers.

Asking questions should never be put down as lack of faith.

My faith is in the idea that if there is nothing to hide, theologians would not be training people to never ask question concerning their theologies. They would want people to ask questions on all subjects ... especially religion.

Theologians have much to hide.

Thank you.
It's just so amazing that the supposed teacher of perfect morals to mankind -- continues to honor in such a blatant and public manner someone who covered up child abuse by over 90 Priests.
I get it. Cardinal Law was a good soldier for the Vatican. But it is painfully clear that the catholic church still does not.
90 molesting priests?? you left out a few zero's there,it dates back to 1400's pope julius had a boy toy back in 1487-1555,90 is probally from one month,we'll never know the true number because the church will never be honest about it, but in the 2000 yrs it was created by constantine and his 100 men,the number is more than likely up into the thousands.

Because on forums we don't see body language, facial expressions, or tones of voice, it is easy to take the wrong meaning from what people post.

It I took the wrong meaning from what you intended, when you didn't mean it as an insult, I apologize.

I've assumed wrong before, and I expect I'll do it again. But it's not on purpose. It's simply that I don't get it right.

Sorry.

I/we as Catholics, are just "defending" the TRUTH of over 2000 years of Jesus Christs One True Apostolic Catholic Church..........You bible only bigots are the ones that keep "throwing out" your Protestant "fictitious history myths" as well "your own interpretation (or better yet mis-interpretation) of the bible, making it mean "only what YOU want it to mean"!! Jesus confirms, verifies and gives us His "one and only" TRUE Church in Matthew 16:13-21, appointing Peter (and his bishops successors) as His earthly representative to lead HIS Church, until Jesus (himself) returns again for the second time here on earth. Jesus INITIATED it, Paul VERIFIES it in 1 Timothy 3:15 calling the Church (not the bible alone) as the pinnacle, pillar and foundation of the TRUTH, Church History CONFIRMS it over and over again for over 2000 years.

I was only referring to one Cardinal and how he was honored by the Vatican with an esteemed position.

I don't think this is a uniquely Catholic problem, any more than any other religion.

But it is a Catholic problem per the title of this board. The claim is empty.

They have shown their god is equally imaginary as all others.

Cool. That's called an opinion based solely on faith. However, it would be more correct to start your statement with "I believe..."

Prove it and millions of $$$ in reward money are yours.

In all probability, this god was drilled into you since early childhood. Your god is based on where you were born and the culture in which you were raised.

Yes?

Every day I make the same prediction, and every day I am correct.

Pope Francis I wrote:
<quoted text>
Your Pope prays for those gone astray such as you have dearest.
May the Lord accept the sacrefice at your hands for the praise and glory of His name, for our good , and for the good of all His Holy Church.
The Old Testament is rather outdated and Your Pope understands that it was created by the wise men of the early ages as a source to be the law for man and to give him some of the answers that he was searching for.
In these early times, very few men were considered wise and it was left to them to come up with the best reasonings of how man came to be and the lives of those who followed...hence Adam and Eve and the rest throughout the ages. The laws, or Ten Commandments' were great laws and kept most people in check. One can't imagine what thee world would have been like without the laws based on what the world was like with the laws.
After Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD was born, and lived, and died on the Cross, and arose from the dead...things changed. These happenings formed the New Testament in which Christ's teachings are followed today in the Holy Roman Catholic Church.
The Holy Roman Catholic Church is the ONE True Church to itself. All other Christian denominations are deviations of the Catholic Church and instituted to self-serve their own interests. The Church of England is a very good example.....started up by King Henry VIII because he was refused to be divorced by the Catholic Church to marry another woman which infuriated him so much that he 'broke' with the church, became excommunicated and in the end suffered an agnozing death in mental anguish knowing and believing that he was going to hell.
We believe in GOD, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.
Your Pope
Francis I
the pope is more than likely praying she'll come back because they want her money.King Henry VIII died from over eating and never ate anything except meat&bread,strawberries,an d drank ale he had 13 meals a day.to him vegtables were for peasants not royalty.

St. Athanasius, Bishop and Doctor of the Church
(295?-373)

Athanasius led a tumultuous but dedicated life of service to the Church. He was the great champion of the faith against the widespread heresy of Arianism, the teaching by Arius that Jesus was not truly divine. The vigor of his writings earned him the title of doctor of the Church.

Born of a Christian family in Alexandria, Egypt, and given a classical education, Athanasius became secretary to Alexander, the bishop of Alexandria, entered the priesthood and was eventually named bishop himself. His predecessor, Alexander, had been an outspoken critic of a new movement growing in the East—Arianism.

When Athanasius assumed his role as bishop of Alexandria, he continued the fight against Arianism. At first it seemed that the battle would be easily won and that Arianism would be condemned. Such, however, did not prove to be the case. The Council of Tyre was called and for several reasons that are still unclear, the Emperor Constantine exiled Athanasius to northern Gaul. This was to be the first in a series of travels and exiles reminiscent of the life of St. Paul.

After Constantine died, his son restored Athanasius as bishop. This lasted only a year, however, for he was deposed once again by a coalition of Arian bishops. Athanasius took his case to Rome, and Pope Julius I called a synod to review the case and other related matters.

Five times Athanasius was exiled for his defense of the doctrine of Christ’s divinity. During one period of his life, he enjoyed 10 years of relative peace—reading, writing and promoting the Christian life along the lines of the monastic ideal to which he was greatly devoted. His dogmatic and historical writings are almost all polemic, directed against every aspect of Arianism.

Among his ascetical writings, his Life of St. Anthony (January 17) achieved astonishing popularity and contributed greatly to the establishment of monastic life throughout the Western Christian world.

Comment:

Athanasius suffered many trials while he was bishop of Alexandria. He was given the grace to remain strong against what probably seemed at times to be insurmountable opposition. Athanasius lived his office as bishop completely.

He defended the true faith for his flock, regardless of the cost to himself. In today’s world we are experiencing this same call to remain true to our faith, no matter what.

The ex-Jew Catholics claimed that Jesus came as a savior to save only those of the Catholic faith.

The word Christ means Messiah. The word Jesus also means Messiah.

Jesus Christ ... Messiah Messiah.

How silly is that?

The Jews had their Christ, in that they were already the chosen few. The Catholics had to add Jesus to the brew in hopes of people believing that Jesus Christ was a divine man who came to earth to save ONLY Catholics.

If you separate those two words, the Jews had their Messiah, but the ex-Jew Catholics never had one ... so they created another one.

Where was the holy spirit when all these raped children needed him, and as you know it still goes on in your church today?
UNBELIEVABLE!
Michael---You still do not seem to understand the difference between the TRUTH of Christian DOCTRINE and personal CONDUCT!!
The Church IS, HAS and WILL ALWAYS be protected from error, regarding the TRUTH of DOCTRINE and TEACHINGS handed down by Jesus Christ over 2000 years ago...... The "inappropriate abusive conduct" of some of its members in the Church, has NOTHING TO DO with whether or not the Church teaches the TRUTH or not!! The issue here is DOCTRINE OF TRUTH vs CONDUCT! Jesus Christ established and formed His One True Catholic Church--"to save sinners" of which we all are!! The over 1 Billion Catholics throughout the world, follow, believe and adhere to the FACT that the Catholic Church is the ONLY CHURCH that teaches the TRUTH OF DOCTRINE in accordance with Sacred Scripture and Apostolic Tradition. The Church can and does teach that abortion, killing, sexual abuse, adultery,homosexuality, stealing ect. are sinfully wrong, however, it doesn't guarantee that people will not sin!! The sexual abuse CONDUCT by 3% of priests who have "gone against their vows" within the Catholic Church have and should be prosecuted for their abusive crimes. Their crimes of CONDUCT (again) have nothing to do the TRUTH of the Church Teaching the TRUTH OF DOCTRINE!! If you are going to judge the Church by CONDUCT, then you had better "throw out your bible" because EVERY ONE of its authors were sinners. Moses was a murderer, David was an adulterer and Paul said "I am the worst of sinners". This only goes to show how distorted and duplicious Protestants, atheists and agnostics are in their ingrained and vindictive anti-catholic confused and chaotic judgmental beligerent thinking!!

Theologians had to keep writing. Otherwise what would be their purpose? So they kept writing more and more stupid blather.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>

Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase & Fable by Ivor H. Evans … First published 1817.

Adoption controversy. Elipand, Archbishop of Toledo, and Felix Bishop of Urgel (in the 8th century), maintained that Christ in his human nature was the son of God by adoption only (Rom. viii, 29), though in his pre-existing state he was the “begotten Son of God” in the ordinary Catholic acceptation. The adoptionists were condemned by the Council of Frankfurt in 794.

if your talking about anullment from marriage,it was joe kennedy that tried to have his marrige anulled and his soon to be ex-wife went public with it because she didn't want the childrens names removed from the book of life,she was not being listened to by the church due in part a large check written out to the church and he is a kennedy,so by going public with the story the church reluctantly returned the check and refused joe's request.

I gave 6 passages in the post you responded to. There are dozens more.

"Fundamentalist, Evangelical and Pentecostal Protestants in their false Biblical interpretation regarding wine and grape juice absolutely violates the historical content of Biblical exegesis. There must be proper methodology for legitimate interpretation. There must be a correct evaluation regarding the level of specificity of the original application in interpretation. One cannot negate Patristics and science in hermeneutical study. The hermeneutical spiral thrown by Fundamentalist and Pentecostal Protestants regarding wine jettisons all inductive assessments of facts of data regarding Biblical interpretation regarding this subject."
