ALL!!!
Your "personal editorialized opinion" has absolutely no influence (what-so-ever) on my own personal relationship with Jesus Christ, in and through His One True Apostolic Catholic Church...... You, June can believe what you want!..... Makes little or no difference to me! One would think (at your age) you would have attain some degree of "spiritual wisdom" in the final years of your life!!

hojo, you are brainwashed and totally deluded.
The RCC teaches ALL BUT THE TRUTH.
The RCC is the originator of the JESUITS whose sole task was to confuse protestants and feed them lies and half truths so that they would return to "the mother church".
The RCC is also the originator of the Illuminati who I'm sure you will have heard of. They are the most deceptive organisation ever on this planet.
In no way would knowing protestants ever conceive of joining with the harlot church you adhere to.
The RCC has persecuted, tortured and burned many true saints throughout history.
You are one who has been spawned by this horrific religion as you constantly crow about it being the FULLNESS or COMPLETENESS of the TRUTH. Which it is not.
Anything the RCC has touched is corrupt and false.
Just look at the characters who have lead your abomination.
Research TEN WORST POPES and you will see how sick the RCC really is.
You can believe all of the distorted and perverted (anti-catholic) bible only nonsense that you want Tiger Lily. I/we as Catholics will continue to adhere to, believe and follow the TRUTH of the Gospel (as billions of Catholics have for over 2000) in Jesus Christ, in and through His One (and only one) TRUE APOSTOLIC CATHOLIC CHURCH, with Daily Mass, the Eucharist, the Sacred Scriptrues, the Sacraments and the Daily Adoration Prayer Chapel You, my friend --can do what you want!!

And who says what I believe is distorted or perverted? You?

There you go again, spouting the same old same old BS about the Roman Catholic Church.

It is very not true and very not apostolic.

The apostles kept a seventh day Sabbath. Read the book of Acts.

Your Constantine in his famous edict changed that to the day Sun Worshippers kept: Sunday. So... your church is NOT apostolic.

Your Eucharist is an abomination in that it makes a sacrifice of God who made One sacrifice for all on the cross.

Your priests MAKE God and then eat Him. Hocus Pocus is incanted over a cracker and then you worship it.
Preposterous.

Billions of Catholics live in a world concocted by evil popes over centuries. WAKE UP, hojo.

Just a few texts to prove that the Apostles kept the seventh day holy...

"And they returned and prepared spices and ointments, and rested the Sabbath day according to the commandment." Mark this: "And rested the Sabbath day, ACCORDING TO THE COMMANDMENT.

Acts 13:42, says, "And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles* besought that these words might be preached to them the next Sabbath."

Acts 13: 44, "And the next Sabbath-day came almost the whole city together, to hear the word of God. "

Acts 16:13, "And on the Sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made."

Chap. 17:2 "And Paul as his manner was; went in unto them, and three Sabbath-days reasoned with them out of the scriptures." This says, "as his manner was."

28:4, "And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath and persuaded the Jews and Greeks." This is "every Sabbath."

11th verse, "And he continued there a year and six months." Now if it was Paul's "manner" to reason in the synagogue "EVERY Sabbath", He must have in this place, observed seventy-eight Sabbaths.

It is evident that Christ had his eye on the observance of Sabbath, as late certainly as A. D. 70, when Jerusalem was destroyed when he said: "Pray ye that your flight be not in winter, neither on the Sabbath-day. " Matt. 24:20.

But if this "tribulation" spoken of, has reference to the "Papal persecution," as many believe, then they were directed in the observance of the Sabbath, to a much later period. Paul in Heb. 4:4, says, "For He spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works," ...--Not the first, but the seventh day.

In the third and fourth centuries, as the Catholic Church rose to prominence in the Roman Empire, it increasingly incorporated customs adapted from pagan worship practices.
Among these was the elevation of Sunday, the day devoted to honouring the sun god, a deity extremely popular among the Roman masses.

Meanwhile, those who held to the original teachings of the apostles were increasingly persecuted.

By A.D. 365 an edict by Catholic leaders at the Council of Laodicea declared: "Christians must not Judaize by resting on the Sabbath, but must work on that day, rather, honouring the Lord's Day [Sunday]; and, if they can, resting then as Christians. But if any shall be found to be Judaizers, let them be anathema from Christ [i.e., excommunicated]" (Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Vol. 19, p. 148,

Now you have to ask yourselves, are you following what scripture plainly teaches?
Or are you following what some men have apparently written after Christ left this Earth?

now you can like those words or heed them. the choice is YOURS!
The biggest lie ever is that others must follow your flavor of Christianity or Jesus won't love them.

Muslims don't give a rat's ass if "your imaginary" Jesus loves them, as they don't believe he is their savior.

You just don't GET that concept, just as the Muslims don't get your concept. As are so many in religion, your views are both very narrow.

Devout religious believers simply don't WANT to see that if they were born in any other religion, they would be raised to believe they know the one and only truth.

It's not a complicated concept at all ... but it's one that most all people in religion adamantly refuse to accept.

And that stubborn attitude is what continually fuels the fires that motivate religious right-fighters.

Even jumping from one religion to another doesn't mean that a person is any closer to owning truth. It simply means the person has found a new emotional zone of mental "comfort."

Whaddabouit Man called of God????? Is there a problem????? You are hiding...again.....

Logic tells me that a man "called of God would have no problem answering such a simple statement: tell me the following does not teach that Jesus is not God...

You are a fraud....you are one of those the Bible speaks of...wolves dressed in the clothes of sheep...

Prove my words: Do you agree with the teaching of the Catholics and the SBC:

Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself human nature with its demands and necessities and identifying Himself completely with mankind yet without sin...

And: The Catholics:
Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God...redeemer of the human Race..

When I admit that I don't know if awareness continues after death of the human physical body, people of religion are often very insulted.

The reason they are insulted, is because they want to believe they DO know and they often do everything in their power to "convince" me that what they preach at me is based on their ability TO know.

But just as they don't believe those in other religions know truth... I don't believe that THEY know truth.

That's fair ... isn't it?

Clay...parents have done that who were not Catholic, so she is probably right. I know a woman whose uncles molested her. She told her mother, who accused her of lying.
Some parents were 'taken' with the idea that religious people wouldn't do such a thing. Some of them were scared. Some of them simply didn't believe that ANYONE could do such a thing.
Why didn't they believe their children? Fear maybe. Shame. What father wanted to be guilty of accusing 'a man of God'???
Some children never told...for a multitude of reasons.

But I find it hard to believe priests get a high alcohol reading
Just by serving at mass.

Maybe it had to do with them nit throwing it out ..But backs when they only passed out the host ..I think they only used a bit to consecrated..now I guess they have to consecrated more if they pass it out??

Maybe some Catholic can answer ..can they just save the wine they do not use..like the consecrated hosts they used to keep in the tabernacle...

Maybe A Catholic can answer that one.

My point was if it's a problem if the laws change..just make the wine weaker .

There are alcoholics in all walks of life, but a Catholic priest, a man called of God, as was Atemcowboy, is not expected to be a drunkard.....and would not be if he was not drinking alcohol every time he said mass!!!!!

Ant said he drank the blood of Christ twice a week...which says all Catholics do likewise, or, at the very least, every time they drink the blood of Christ....if that were so, there would not be alcoholic Catholic priests from drinking such...there are alcoholics...no bloodcoholics..

The priests in Ireland would not be concerned that the alcohol reading in a Breathalyzer test would be lowered!!! Now would they????

Discuss? I'm not here to discuss the word of God with you because you're not qualified to discuss the word of God with me. I'm here to teach you the word of God,not discuss it with you.

So I'll keep teaching and you keep listening. Kay? Maybe in a few years of me teaching you then you will be able to discuss it with me but at this time as I stated, you're not qualified to discuss the word of God with me.
