Of course I missed it. I wanted to be there. Half of the fun is watching others get caught having fun.
That's why so many people believe they will be on a high with Jesus watching others get caught in the devil's snare.
AHHHHH the pleasure of it all.

Didn't you know satan goes to church, it seems your one of the poor soul who got caught in his snare.

Say, I do love the small "c" catholic (universal) church. It is the cult in Rome called the Roman Catholic Church I have a problem with. Do you understand?
We as Catholics, ALL UNDERSTAND, that you are confused, mixed up, disoriented as ever!!!

Kay claims a Catholic priest charged one of her in-laws $700 for a funeral, just for the homily (she called it a sermon).
Yeah.

I've seen several posts on the subject here-always some shirttail relative getting hit with a huge bill from the Church. Sure.

ETERNAL SECURITY
by: Adrian Rogers
This doesn't make sense, JG. Outside of having made up the word "predestinated", Rogers' commentary here leaves some questions.

If you cannot separate yourself from Gods' love, then you are stating that sin (and by extension Hell) does not exist?

If one thinks themselves "Saved" while here on Earth, and is "perfect forever", is this person somehow more than human while here on Earth? Does this person rise above their human nature and become impervious to sin? If so, please identify such a person now living who is impervious to sin and incapable of the commission of sin.

RE: Christ interceding for us:

Christ is God; is He not the "end point" for the prayers? He intercedes to Himself? If this IS possible, how do you reconcile your (presumed here) belief that intercessory prayer (to Mary, the Saints, et. al.) is wrong/ineffectual/unbiblical/w hatever?

16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

Grammar 101

In the passage, "healed" acts upon the object "you".

"You" are "healed" of what?

"sins". That which is confessed.

Again, James is not foreshadowing Dr. Phil here.

"catholic church all about money".

You'll admit that they DO have expenses well beyond the typical non-Catholic church.

They run schools, they run hospitals, they run charities. They don't pay "ministers of music" or the like. Priests receive a paltry stipend.

I mean, they can't run these things on good intentions.

Misery likes company is true I guess.
Sorry to hear about your upbringing. I can't imagine the despair, fear and lack of love you might have experienced. Its obvious you have put that behind you and made your life positive.

It was a funeral of a friend. I won't say the priest's name but it was Immaculate Conception in Cols, OH (he has retired) said as soon as we get a check we will proceed the the funeral arrangements. What had happened was my friend was so offended, she had the funeral somewhere else.

How bout my family member who also went to Immaculate Conception to receive an annulment...sure you can for $500.

But when you tell catholics these things, you all say yeah right, that naver happened. Well it happened.

Regina, I put a snake in a girls bed at camp one year.
She was picking on a girl who was of a different colour and race.
The Young girl spent the better part of 2 weeks at camp where she should have had fun trying to avoid the nasty bigot.
The night I put the snake in her bed I punched her lights out.
The girl had nerve enough to complain to the camp dean, that I treated her very bad and did bad things to her.
Forgetting the treatment that she had inflicted on the girl she abused herself.
That is what you do Regina, so here is a snake down your back.
believe me I would bring the biggest snake I could find.
Go back to the other form you are on and spread your nasty remarks,
and please don't say your a christian again or I will bring some of the comments back here.
Your as nasty as June not much different oh yes you were both raise in the catholic religion.
I though I recognized that religious pagan spirit, in you both.

That's why they have Summer festivals, to sell alcohol and have gambling. So people with drinking and gambling problems will come and spend money...sweet!! praise God!!

It seems that theologians never had any trouble finding those who would believe they knew truth.

History of Religious Ideas, by Mircea Eliade.

As one finds elsewhere, the origin myths begin with the account of the cosmogony. The world was created by the celestial Phyva gods, imagined as being heavenly mountains.(We will return later to the religious importance and symbolism of mountains.) Certain of these mountain-gods descended to earth, bringing with them the animals, plants, and probably the first humans.

Was the friend a parishioner at the church?

Do you recall what the payment was said to be for?

Annulments do cost money. always have. Some of the work necessary for those gets farmed out to lay people who do it for a living.

Religion is all about copying parts of previous religions ... morphing the dogmas to suit theological desires and only THEN believing the seeker has finally encapsulated absolute truth.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>

A History of Religious Ideas, by Mircea Eliade.

Tibetan religion, just like Hinduism and ancient and Medieval Christianity, presents at its apogee a remarkable synthesis, the result of a long process of assimilation and syncretism.

Lutherís theology

In a letter of June 1522, Marin Luther wrote:ďI do not admit that my doctrine can be judged by anyone, even by the angels. One who does not receive my doctrine cannot come to salvation.Ē

Having received the revelation that it is the absolute freedom of God the Father which judges, condemns, and saves according to his own decision, Luther could no longer tolerate any other interpretation.
