<quoted text>I don't dispute what you said the early church believed but I think they left out the 4th part. The mind. And it's because they didn't want people to think for themselves and question the authority of the Priests and Church leaders. It's not surprising that the original sin as the act of man gaining knowledge.
Rod McKuen once said something about Billy Graham. He was talking about how much Billy spoke against our worldly nature and managed to combine gold and God into a multi billion dollar a year business.
And please I am not knocking Mr. Graham. I admire the fact that he established guidelines for such ministries when it comes to disclosing donations and how much money pours in. He wrote some paper about it but no other evangelicals of his time would sign on.
As far as I know his group is the only evangelical group that does this.

Mat 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Mat 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
NOTE
Mat 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place,(whoso readeth, let him understand:)
Which makes this supposed custody agreement seem odd..

But then the Vatican seems to have been close to the Palestinians.

Thing is the two sides are now meeting with representatives
From THIS administration as referees...tt all about lop sided

He who blesses the Chosen shall be blessed

He who curses them shall be cursed.

This country has in the past been on the right side of this prophecy .

Is the Catholic Church Becoming More Gay Tolerant Under Pope Francis?

Is the Catholic Church Becoming More Gay Tolerant Under Pope Francis?
Posted on July 29, 2013 by V2A —

Pope Francis has challenged his doctrinaire predecessor’s opinions on gay priests while upholding Church dogma that bans the ordination of women.

Flying back to Rome from his week-long visit to Brazil, the pontiff took reporters’ questions for 80 minutes in his first press conference since he was elected by cardinals to replace Pope Benedict XVI in March.

Unlike his predecessor who would only answer a few pre-scripted questions,
the 76-year-old Argentine Jesuit

fielded all issues unprompted, ranging from the so-called “gay lobby” in the Vatican to accusations of corruption involving its bank.

“If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has goodwill, who am I to judge?’’ the pontiff said in remarks that Vatican reporters saw as the most conciliatory on the issue of gay priests expressed by any pope. In line with Church teaching, Francis said gays should not be judged or marginalised but integrated into society, while maintaining that homosexual acts are a sin.

I did, by reading the article.

Last line is especially instructive.

I didn't know the answer to this question, so I quick went on line to one of those ancients gods,'cause I figured they would be closer to the source of real truth.

They must have been busy because it took hours for me to get any response whatsoever ... and then I was informed that it was a goddess from whom I was receiving the information.

Before I go any further with the response she gave me ... being that she is female ... will you trust that she tells the truth???

<quoted text>You said doctrine can't be changed but it can and has happened many times in the RCC.
Pope Benedict: In 1981, he settled in Rome when he became Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, one of the most important dicasteries of the Roman Curia.
During that time he helped shape the new view of gays and lesbians by the Catholic Faith. Under John Paul II he helped change the idea of homosexuality from an inherent sin to the ACT being sinful not the person or their state of being.
My partner was catholic and when he died he wanted to be cremated. His family were fairly traditional and some worried that destroying his body by fire would deny him resurrection in the Rapture. They were afraid the church would not allow him to be interred in holy ground. They were not aware that the Church had changed it's stance on cremation. It's amazing to me that it was his desire to be cremated that they feared the church would object to and not the fact that he was gay and my husband (we never married in any open ceremony. We exchanged vows on evening before God).
I am also allowed to be interred next to him even though I am not Catholic.(One of my sisters had converted so that was my way in).
Just wanted to share part of my experience with the RCC and their rules.
Why people even desire to belong to religious groups that teach such horrible dogmas is beyond me.

I was under the spell of religion for most of my life, but I created a belief of my own that the one god loved everybody without conditions put upon the love.

At least I wasn't trying to grab all the supposed love for my self while claiming that others deserved to spend eternity in hell.

Your mom might have thought she was teaching you something of value, but I believe that that teaching could make you believe that you have a straight line to truth, which is exactly what most all people believe that are in any man-created institution of worship.

To believe one knows truth of a god or gods, is to simply worship the self's intellectual ability to go above self.

I believe that the Catholics were the first ones to use the word Christian. Ignatius was Catholic.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>

An important milestone into development of Christian self-consciousness or Christian self-identity will be the emergence of the word "Christianity." This word appears for the first time in the writings of a church thinker of the early 2nd century of our era named Ignatius, who lived in Western Asia Minor, modern day Western Turkey

My one word answer: Religion. The struggle is political on the surface, but the division underneath all that is religious.

My guess is that at least some Catholics were not molested but took advantage of the situation to reap payouts from the church.

One lawyer was even disbarred for being caught in such a deception.
