What I don't get is if "God" never charged for his word to be spread to others, why do modern men charge.
"Modern men?"

They charge under the premise that they are taking the money to give to the poor, because as we are fully aware "god" doesn't look after the poor.

What a joke.

Indulgences are offered by the Catholic Church as a way to reduce the amount of time believers spend in purgatory after they confess and have been absolved of their sins.

In part I would like people to stop believing that a god favors their religion and hates all other religions.

Do you believe that is too much to ask of humans that are supposed to have brains???

Mary died. Is there another point your trying to make?
MARY DID NOT OBTAIN IMMORTALITY...her spirit ascended to God as other

have...But Mary is not bodily in heaven .

~~~

1Co 15:42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

1Co 15:43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:

1Co 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

1Co 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

1Co 15:46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

1Co 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

1Co 15:48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

1Co 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

NOTE -->

1Co 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that

-->flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God;

neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. <--

The word "hail" as defined in the dictionary means ---"to greet. welcome, acknowledge, to say hello!! The words "hail Mary" are a greeting, expressing recognition of her as the Mother of Jesus. It has "nothing to do" with worshiping her, as you in your "distorted, perverted and and twisted "anti-catholic" thinking just keep "making these things up"!!
[email protected], the first time that phrase was used, she was not the Mother of Jesus.

next lie?

The Catechism of the Catholic Church defines purgatory as a "purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven," which is experienced by those "who die in God’s grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified" (CCC 1030). It notes that "this final purification of the elect ... is entirely different from the punishment of the damned" (CCC 1031).----A catholic lie from the pit of Hell.

Christ's sacrifice was enough for our sins.

Isaiah 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed

The irony of your statement is due to the fact that clinics in the U.S., are run like "back alley" abortion mills. They are not safe, not "hospital-like".
And yet you support them....
The fact that women "prefer" to go to abortion clinics speaks for itself Robert F.

You and your Catholicism would like to keep women going to back-alley butchers and have them in state desperate enough to perform abortions on their selves.

That way you can proclaim with pride that YOU are working for a god.

You idiot!!!

I don't disapprove of the purgatorial process or indulgences. It's a pretty simple question Chuck. Enough for what?

I only posted that because as,a child in Catholic school it was clear we were praying to Mary

I personally at this time in life don't think it was a bad thing .

Just saying we indeed were taught to pray to the blessed Virgin

I might add nit having any idea what that word meant ..

The Bible says...

Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Rom 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

Rom 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Rom 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

1Co_9:16 For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!

WERE YOU called...are you sent..

If you are you charge is

2Ti 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

2Ti 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

2Ti 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

2Ti 4:5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

Catholicism isn't the only religion with sexual abuse scandals. Three S.F. women are working to expose cases within the Orthodox Church.
By Mark Athitakis Wednesday, May 22 2002
.......

----------
In the Roman Catholic Church, the chain of command is simple: An infallible pope heads the church, a Council of Cardinals administers bishops, and bishops manage priests in their parishes. The Orthodox Church structure is more complex. To make a long story short (the story begins in 1054 with the Great Schism and the Orthodox rejection of papal authority), Orthodoxy in America is an administrative mess. Instead of having a top-down hierarchy, the church is fractured into a variety of self-regulating organizations, which roughly break down along ethnic lines: the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, the Serbian Orthodox Church, the Orthodox Church in America, which is mainly Russian, and many others.
Those separate spheres have long been a source of dismay for the Orthodox faithful -- the patriarch of Constantinople, visiting the U.S. in 1990, called it "truly a scandal" -- and they are a source of confusion as well, which has led to a growth industry in renegade Orthodox groups in recent years.
"There have been little offshoots all along, but it's mushroomed over the past 30, 40 years," says Phillip Lucas, a professor of religious studies at Stetson University in DeLand, Fla., who has studied Orthodox fringe groups. "Part of it has to do with the entrepreneurial way that religion is done in America. If somebody is disgruntled, he just leaves and starts a new church. That's as American as Mom and apple pie. He'll say,'If I can find a couple bishops to ordain me, I can keep on.' And there are plenty of renegade bishops out there."

Catholics never understood the conciliar and collegial nature of the structure of the Orthodox Church. When I have time I will try to explain it again.The Ortho Church is bot monarchal. Neither was the Original Church. The Original Church was collegial and conciliar and grew organically. The Catholic Church changed the structure.Study the influx of the Visigoths, Odtrogoths, Lombards and particularly the Franks to understand how the Catholic Church changed the structure and the Popes became secular world powers.The Frankish Church.If the Catholic Church has better organization with one head, the Pope, then he is ultimately responsible for all the sexual abuse scandals since his being head means the Church is better control-right? With authority comes responsibility.History and organizational philosophy disputes the old corporate philosophy that centralization is the best organizational approach. Study philosophies of corporate organization.Decades ago corporations decided that deventralization is preferred. In fact the monarchal, archaic structure of the Catholic Church is a major factor inits problems, particularly the sexual abuse sandals.
