I am surprised the roman catholic church hasn't taken out REITS on all their real estate holdings?.........Maybe they have.
The roman catholic church has more real estate holdings than any entity on the planet. The vatican bank has billions invested in the Rothschild investments in western europe not counting billions in gold and industrys around the world.
The richest entity in the world yet everyday 25,000 children starve to death.
Does the church really need buildings that are 2 city blocks long that are locked up 150 hours a week with the lights left on and the heat turned up while homeless people sleep in the alleyway next door in an empty cardboard refridgerator box?
.......makes no common sense.
Scriptures claim this man Jesus was the poorest of the poor. The roman catholic church is the richest of the rich.....

You idiot! That's not a Catholic church!
How's that crow tasting?
The Episcopal Church,which is both catholic and reformed at the same time. holding onto catholicity of the early church all the while seeing this through the enlightenment of the Reformation.
Some of the primary differences of the Episcopal church are rejection of the idea that the Bishop of Rome (Pope) has primary authority over the Church Universal.... look it up yourself if you doubt this and be sure to read the article i posted about the two churches joining forces.

Scripture is a written record. Thus, it's recorded history.
Do you have any more "devastation" you feel inclined to visit upon the board?
Its only CHRISTIAN history. You know that Jews, Muslims, and all others have their religious books of history, but I am sure you don't believe all that they say.

Outside the bible there is no recorded history by anyone in the entire mediteranean during that era of a miracle man named Jesus.

Wouldn't you think of the thousands that were supposedly miraclized there would have been hand me down stories throughout history...nothing!

Nothing in the writing of Pontius Pilate about a Jesus, or crucifixion yet christians claim he was at the scene! Nothing outside the bible about King Herod slaughtering young boys trying to kill Jesus..........nothing. Nothing about virgin birth, miracles, crucifixion. The only logical answer would be that no one recorded anything at that time because these stories had not yet been invented until the gospels were written decades later to ad foder to the create the whole story. St Paul the first early writer never mentions virgin birth, miracles, jesus family....because these stories had not yet been created until the gospels hobbled them together.

The catholic fathers first saw the scriptures about 150 years after Jesus supposedly died. 150 years!!

.... Imagine today that we found out for the first time about the civil war, 150 years after it occured, and no one else recorded anything about it at all.........impossible Dan!

Can dogs get sexually transmitted diseases?

Answer

Yes they can. Apparently all std's originated via animals; humans having sexual contact with animals and spread the std to other humans through sexual contact also...The bacteria and viruses such as syphillis and herpes simplex can survive in both humans and animals alike with some variation

I was a couple of years ago when this was news.
The Episcopalians were all geeked up about Fr. Cutie (the priest who got caught with a girlfriend-you dug that up this week) coming over to their camp, and gloated about how they were a harbor of modernity for this poor man who simply wanted love.
When these Episcopal parishes started jumping ship to Catholicism, they weren't so warm and fuzzy about that.
What is your point? People use excuses all the time to bail from one cult to another.

here is an interesting story i just found,it about joining the episcopal church with the catholic church.US Episcopal parish to join Catholic Church
Published June 06, 2011
Associated Press.A Maryland Episcopal parish will be the first in the United States to join the Roman Catholic Church under a new streamlined conversion process created by Pope Benedict XVI, leaders of both church groups said Monday.
St. Luke's Episcopal parish in Bladensburg will come under the care of Washington Catholic Cardinal Donald Wuerl, who is forming a U.S. ordinariate — effectively a national diocese — for Episcopalians converting under the pope's plan.
Washington Episcopal Bishop John Chane, a leading liberal in his denomination, said Monday that he approved St. Luke's decision and will allow the congregation to continue worshipping in their church under a lease with an option to buy the building.
Pope Benedict XVI in 2009 issued an unprecedented invitation for Anglicans to become Catholic while retaining some Anglican liturgical heritage. Anglicans worldwide have been on the brink of schism over how to interpret what the Bible says about gay relationships, ordaining women and other issues. Critics accused the pope of poaching converts, but the Vatican said Benedict was only responding to requests from Anglicans.
The 2-million-member Episcopal Church, the U.S. body of the Anglican Communion, caused an uproar in 2003 by consecrating the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, V. Gene Robinson of New Hampshire. Episcopal conservatives responded by creating an alternative fellowship, the Anglican Church in North America, which says it includes about 1,000 congregations in the United States and Canada.
now the funny part: St. Luke's decision and will allow the congregation to continue worshipping in their church under a "lease with an option to buy" the building....they will remain in THEIR church but they must lease or buy it from the catholic church?? how greedy and rediculous.why should the episcopal church have to buy/lease their own building just for joining the catholic church?? it is just me or is that kind of odd?
Maybe re-read the article? The parish is to lease its land from the *Episcopal* diocese.

Here's the article. The line you totally mis-read is the 4th paragraph.

Citations yee shall want! Citations yee shall have!

Nobody knows the total its astronomical.

..........World's Biggest Stock Broker
The Catholic Church, therefore, once all her assets have been put together, is the most formidable stockbroker in the world. The 'Wall Street Journal' said that the Vatican's financial deals in the U.S. alone were so big that very often it sold or bought gold in lots of a million or more dollars at one time.

Therefore, the Vatican was, and still is, the most redoubtable wealth accumulator and property owner in existence. No one knows for certain how much the Catholic Church was, or is worth in terms of dollars and other currencies, not even the pope himself.

That is the true situation borne out by a Vatican official who, when asked to make a guess at the Vatican's wealth today, replied very tellingly, "Only God knows."

Michael says.......you won't find that story anywhere else in recorded history. You won't find the John Baptist, virgin birth, crucifixion, King Herod wanting to kill Jesus, no story about Jesus running 2,000 pigs off a cliff, no story about anything of miracles........DEVASTATING!
A man claimed by christians to be the greatest man that ever lived and outside the scriptures we know NOTHING of such a man!......SILENCE!
.......makes no common sense!
Try googling "non biblical references to Jesus".

I'm sure it was not the alcohol of today or even alcohol at all. If it was Tony, Jesus would be going against God's Word wouldn't He?
Habakkuk 2:15 “Woe to him who makes his neighbors drink— you pour out your wrath and make them drunk, in order to gaze at their nakedness!
**Notice the text doesn't talk about the one drinking but who gave it to them. So I'd bet the wine at Cana wasn't like the wine you serve at church.
Wine: oinos: a primary word (or perhaps of Hebrew origin (3196) from an unused root meaning to effervesce; wine (as fermented); by implication, intoxication:--banqueting, wine, wine(-bibber).

No one contends that you may be absolved of sin without confessing same to Christ.
Who said that?
Catholics believe that you confess your sins to Christ through the priest, you pray for God's forgiveness and the priest absolves you of the penalty of your sin with Christ's authority.
the priest does not have Christs authority,show me a passage in the scriptures that says that? and anthony started the whole thing by only posting half of the passage that you posted,anthony:Confess your faults one to another." jethro this all he posted and that is what i went by,he left out " and pray one for another, that ye may be healed." so that is why i brought up the book of timothy,if he had posted the truth this conversation would not be happening,he mislead me.

If they deny the authority of the Pope, then they aren't Catholic.

Please don't take my word for it. Ask if they think they are interchangeable with the Roman catholic Church.

It mentions people and places that existed.

Its history.
