It really is. Of course, the pharisees on this board just rejected Jesus again. It's like 33 A.D. all over again. They just love to hammer those nails in.

If the Roman Catholic church was the only true church Vigilius's views on reincarnation would have been respected and reincarnation as taught by the historical Jesus and the early Christians would not have been outlawed by Emperor Justinian over the objections of Pope Vigilius.

Obviously both can't be right, and unlike the Pope, the emperor never claimed to be the only spokesperson for any god.

As it turns out the Emperor's reasons were simply a matter of political expediency:

"There was a logical reason why the Emperor was opposed to the concept that all of mankind originally came from God and was returing to God via the cycle of birth and death. Justinian had been convinced by high ranking cardinals that it was not in the interest of the empire to allow Origen's writings to continue to be copied and distributed. A powerful group of Cardinalís and Bishopís explained that if every soul had once pre-existed with God, then Christ wasnít anything special to have come from God. These Cardinals convinced the Emperor that if people realized they were the children of God they might begin to believe they no longer needed an Emperor, or to pay taxes, or to obey the Holy Church. But since they reasoned that only Christ had come from God but God made brand new souls at the time of conception and only the Holy Church could bring these souls to God. Without the protection of the Empire or the guidance of the church, all people would be doomed to be forever cut off from God in Hell. This doctrine was very acceptabloe to the Emperor. Once Justinian understood the political danger inherent in Origenís teachings, the rest was simply an Emperor doing what was in his best interest. "

The Mass ain't all about us. Its about Him. We worship the Lord there and partake in the Eucharist. If you weren't so fixated on worshiping the Bible, you'd see that the Mass is the Bible coming to life. That's why the Catholic Church compiled a Bible, so they could bring it into the Mass and read it aloud.
I do my best to not poke fun at how others worship God. You have no problem with it. Then again, you have no problem calling the Lords Mother an incompetent criminal either.

The Book of Revelation says anything folks like you want it to say.
Never mind that Marianism is contrary to so much of your own scripture - "no man is without sin except Jesus," I don't recall any exceptions for Mary.
Face facts, it would be absurd to leave her almost completely out of the Gospels (rarely mentioned after Jesus infancy), if the writers believed she was a "Queen of Heaven" and without sin. Golly, that would be important maybe?
Factoid -- not one single Gospel gives her such stature.
She was needed to replace Isis, whose temples became churches of Mary. She is now in virtually all respects an unauthorized goddess.
Note that Mary miracles are the major ones in Roman Catholicism today. Jesus rarely makes an appearance any more, mystic ritual notwithstanding. Mary is much more approachable. Cool.
You're awfully concerned about what we Catholics believe, why is that? I have to assume you're atheist with a name like yours, so what's your motive? God isn't real, right? Why are you trying to take down something that isn't real??

Clay, that's BM/Free Mind. He's posting the same baloney he's done the last 30 times, word for word. Don't you recognize it? He's also "Plain Jane" and God only knows who else. His posts are all the same, he's easy to spot.

Wrong conclusion, as usual by you "fundies"! The Bishop doesn't replace God! He is NOT GOD!!! He is NOT JESUS CHRIST!! The Bishop (beginning with Peter) is HIS "appointed" EARTHLY REPRESENTATIVE. Just like in Matthew 16:13-21 Peter (the 1st Bishop) was (appointed by Jesus HIMSELF, as "HIS CHIEF REPRESENTATIVE"to "lead HIS Church" until HE returns the for the Second Time, just the the Apostles were appointed as Bishops (Acts 2) to lead the Churches of Antioch, Galacia, Epheusus, Thessalonica , Corinth, Colosse, Phillipi, etc.(as "overseers (which means Bishop). As Augustine, in his writings underscores that fact that Peter has truly receives a "divine appointment" from Christ. He rules, governs and oversees the Church as the Vicar of Jesus Churst HIMSELF..... Augustines comments also highlights the unifying principle that Peter's seat (and ALL those appointed Bishop (Popes) that followed him) bring about Christs TRUE CHURCH. Augustine also said that "Peter is the Christian people" because Peter is HIS (earthly authority)because Peter is the source of unity for the entire Universal Catholic Church. This is "exactly" why thousands of contradicting and inconsistent Protestant denominations(all who reject Jesus Christs appointed Bishop (papal) authority as overseers, EVEN disagree with each other (on basis Christian doctrine)--CANNOT BE CHRIST TRUE UNIVERSAL CHURCH!.........Distorting facts, deceiving other Christians, manipulating the TRUTH and lying about what the Church actually beleives and teaches, who the Pope is and what the TRUE INTERPRETATION regarding what the Bible truthfully means and says, is what you bible only (self appointed) RELATIVE TRUTH editorialists------ DO BEST!!
I'm curious,..serious question ..answer or not .

Obviously you were not satisfied in your old Church .

But had ..you ever felt tat you were born again into Salvation ...

Or were you just going through he motions

I can relate if you were,..

But did you ever feel hat you had received Grace ..had Faith

and the enlightenment of the SPIRIT .

Please I'm not asking how old the CC TRADITION is .

Cheer up, this should make you happy:

Lahore: Catholic Church in Pakistan has announced three days of mourning after a twin suicide on a Church in Peshawar yesterday. Archbishop Joseph Coutts of Karachi condemned the terrorist attack which claimed 83, including seven children, and injured more than 100 at All Saints Church, located in a narrow market of Kohati gate area.
