Your logic does not aline with Scripture...
Show me Scripture says it is OK for a person to commit sexually perverted acts, as long as he uses a condom, to keep himself alive, or for any other reason...
If...and I say that sincerely, if God wants to lead him to salvation...He does not need a condom...
Though shalt not kill. Loaded gun

Qualifications for Deacons
I Timothy 3:8-13, 8 "Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain. 9 They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 And let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless. 11 Their wives likewise must be dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, faithful in all things. 12 Let deacons each be the husband of one wife, managing their children and their own households well. 13 For those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus."
The word of God.

Apparently you did not have a vote. The people I worship and serve with know the truth. You have no idea what the truth is. And if you think because you call yourself a pastor you are entitled to some sort of special consideration you are mistaken. Apostasy is found more often in the pulpit than anywhere else. Understand.

I don't hate you or any other Protestant, bible only (fundie), New Age follower, agnostic, atheists, or WHATEVER you decide to call yourself. It is your "ongoing" distorting, manipulating and deceiving others regarding the TRUTH TRUE HISTORY, the INTERPRETAION of the Bible and of TRUE SALVATION in Jesus Christ in and through His One (and only one) True Apostolic Catholic Church. If you chose to follow your "extended" list of anti-catholic writers from the sources that you gave me---GO AHEAD--BE MY GUEST--IT IS YOUR CHOICE. We as Catholic "all know" where these 21century (pro protestant) writers (that you follow) are coming from and where (both you and they) are going, and there is NOT ONE of us Catholics who puts ANY CREDIBILITY into these "post reformation"(so-called) bible experts. The TRUTH of Jesus Christ and His historially and biblically proven Catholic Church has be substantiated and verified over and over and over again for over 2000 years. And just because (YOU and your ANTI-CATHOLIC WRITERS) decide to re-write Church History and bible interpretation, to fit your own vengeance, hostility and hate against the TRUTH of Jesus Christs Catholic Church, WILL NOT,"HAS NOT, NOR WILL EVER" change the TRUTH of Church History and TRUE interpretation of Sacred Scripture. Heretics, hypocrites, bigots, false teachers and preachers have "come and gone" for over 2000 years-----YET--- THE CHURCH LIVES ON----Just like Jesus HIMSELF, said it would in Matthew 16!!!!

Baptism isn't the only means of receiving the Holy Spirit. We receive it in the Eucharist, Confirmation, laying on of hands, etc.
The apostle Paul clearly taught that we receive the Holy Spirit the moment we receive Jesus Christ as our Savior.

These,lids,are out THERE with multiple partners on a lark ..
Most likely with maturity will come common sense and,some semblance of repentance ..
And,I'm SORRY but I'd rather ser some prevention over an abortion ..
Which not only kills babies but scars the mother .
A woman whose think she has committed a sin which cannot be forgiven ..
The pope in no way condoned homosexual acts, fornication, using condoms or any other form of artificial contraception, he merely said that a homosexual who is not going to procreate anyway may be helping to stop the spread of AIDS if he does use a condom. The person who would use one in order to avoid infecting the other person out of concern for their health is a step closer to seeing the value of human life than a person who won't use one because they don't care if they infect them. I find it troubling so many of you can't or won't see this.

Thanks once again CIB.
You're still avoiding my inquiry. Do you and the other protestants here agree that baptism is the "means of receiving four basic gifts: the remission of sins, deliverance from death, regeneration, and the bestowal of the Holy Spirit."
Baptism is obedience ..after one has,confessed
.believed ..been born again..

In and of itself ..it shows death and rebirth ..But it is,not saving ..

That's,what I learned ..But I'm not a,preacher .

You must have a problem reading, that is the only thing I can think of when you posted this:

" If you chose to follow your "extended" list of anti-catholic writers from the sources that you gave me"

I didn't give you any "extended" listing of any sort.

Your one true Apostolic Church ...
that is all you post about...
I don't need to say anything else (other than) repeating the same TRUE (over and over and over again) of TRUE Church history and the TRUE INTERPRETATION of the bible that was given to ALL OF US by the Early Church Fathers (who wrote it, and interpreted it in 382, 393 AND 397 AD. The same bible interpretation that you twist, manipulate, and have distorted the meaning since the Reformation to your own demise and destruction. Since you have "little or nothing" to back up your bible only (contradicting and inconsistent) beliefs,(burger flipping) bible verses,(one after the other), then adding your own (anti-catholic) interpretation to them is the ONLY thing you have that keeps your "bible only boat" from sinking and in a constant spin, with confusion chaos and contradiction with your other 42,000 "fundies" (going around and around in circles). After 35 years, as a bible only Protestant,....(THANKFULLY) Our Lord Jesus Christ, with the leading of the Holy Spirit, led me out of this (half-truth) Christianity, into the FULLNESS of the FAITH and the FULLNESS of the TRUTH, in Jesus Christ, in and through HIS One True Apostolic Catholic Church. Daily Prayers for you and Kay Marie!!!

1 Peter 3:21

And baptism, which this prefigured, now saves you—not as a removal of dirt from the body, but as an appeal to God for[a] a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,

<quoted text>sorry, but I don't know where you get your info but it is wrong according to the Bible.
Andrew, the brother of peter was a disciple of John the Baptist and was Baptized by him of course, yet Later, after Andrew began to follow Jesus, Jesus gave to Andrew ,the Holy Ghost.
which indicates that water baptism never helped Andrew out one bit, and that unlike some beliefs today , the Holy Ghost was not present at Andrews baptizing. Jesus knew that, of course.
now if water baptism was sufficient for this very first disciple and follower, why was more(Holy Ghost) given him later?
Now if Peter and Paul could lay hands on men and they would receive the Holy Ghost, why couldnt Andrew and others also receive the Holy Ghost when john laid hands on them?
THAT is,Confirmation..the sacrament received around age 12 '

The Baptism vows renewed by the person..That were said at the Baptism ..by the godparents for he child ..

The idea is there But WHAT if the child does not have TRUE redeeming faith ...they learn he ritual with good intentions and HOPE the Holy Spirit
Becomes manifest within.each Child

While I know this is off-topic for this forum, Rose, I believe that you frequent an abortion forum on topix and am wondering if you're aware of the fact that many contraceptives are abortifacients? They alter the lining of the uterus thereby preventing implantation of the fertilized egg (a baby). They actually cause an abortion. And I'm not talking about the morning after pill either. Don't be so quick to approve of contraception.

I believe one MUST BELIEVE AND BE BAPTIZED ..profess,their faith in he Saviour ..be baptized ..

Make believers and baptize ...

Yes,I believe it should be in that order .

Some protestants baptize babies ..some dedicate them ..But most teach one must profess,Jesus as Saviour to be saved

Gave His,Only Son that those WHO BELIEVE...will HAVE eternal life..

Now,since we are all agreed Babies are no going anywhere BUT with

Jesus ..we know They do not believe ...yet .

But the Pope never said its ok for Catholics to use contraception. Ever. Do you seriously not think we can see what you're about, Ox?
You're a liar and a cheat; a manipulator of scripture. There is not one hint of Christ in anything you say. I don't get you.
Anyway, your only desire is to get under peoples skin and you almost did it with me .

The issue of contraception has always been a heavily contested issue in the Catholic Church. That’s why a headline in this morning’s Telegraph “The Pope drops Catholic ban on condoms in historic shift” stopped me in my tracks.

Pure logic escapes you..

The Catholics had a ban on condoms..The Catholic ban on condoms affected only the Catholics!!!! The lifting of this ban affects only Catholics!!!!

I'm making it clear that the pope did not approve the use of condoms as a means of birth control, regardless of the circumstances. Your posts seem to imply you think he is.
