How funny that you believe your interpretation of scripture is based on truth ... and other interpretations are based on ignorance!
You don't even recognize your own arrogance.
Its not 'my' interpretation its the Apostles that walked the earth with JESUS.

You don't ever recognize your own arrogance.

The fact is that other animals were living and becoming extinct long before humans (according to their selves) took center stage.

I suggest that if humans go extinct it won't be any loss to planet earth. It will continue on its regular way of functioning with animals being born, suffering and then dying, and the weak animals and plants going extinct, while the stronger ones survive.

So it went ... and so it goes.

I suggest that if humans had never been taught they were superior to other animals, the world would be a much better place to live.

There would be no competition about who gods love and who gods reject and other silly nonsense that stemmed direct from religion.

Jesus will give PETER his throne in ISRAEL ....
Our,works ate to be because we love Him...not to gain Salvation.
For sure you didn’t pay much attention while you were been taught by “Catholic Nuns”
You know very well that every sacrament is in the Bible, these are Jesus rules.
Jesus would be repulsed at the way you speak of HIS ONE TRUE CHURCH.
St Peter our first Pope would be overjoyed at the growth of Jesus Church!!!
He knows for sure as he watches from heaven.

So you’re not OSAS?
If you are born again and you believe Jesus died for your sins why is there a Judgment Day???

Works and faith is in the Bible read it….or maybe you can take a class at a Catholic Church b/c for sure you didn’t learn much when the nuns taught you.

"Catholics believe that faith AND good works are both necessary for salvation, because such is the teaching of Jesus Christ. What Our Lord demands is "faith that worketh by charity ." (Gal. 5 :6). Read Matthew 25:31-46, which describes the Last Judgment as being based on works of charity. The first and greatest commandment, as given by Our Lord Himself, is to love the Lord God with all one's heart, mind, soul, and strength; and the second great commandment is to love one's neighbor as oneself.(Mark 12:30-31). When the rich young man asked Our Lord what he must do to gain eternal life, Our Lord answered: "Keep the commandments." (Matt. 19:17). Thus, although faith is the beginning, it is not the complete fulfillment of the will of God. Nowhere in the Bible is it written that faith alone justifies. When St. Paul wrote, "For we account a man to be justified by faith, without the works of the law," he was referring to works peculiar to the old Jewish Law, and he cited circumcision as an example."

Confession….AKA
"PENANCE – the sacrament, also known as Confession, through which Christ forgives sin and restores the soul to grace: "Receive ye the Holy Ghost. Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained." (John 20:22-23. Also see Matt. 18:18). "

"The HOLY EUCHARIST – the sacrament, also known as Holy Communion, which nourishes the soul with the true Flesh and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus, under the appearance, or sacramental veil, of bread and wine: "And whilst they were eating, Jesus took bread; and blessing, broke, and gave to them, and said: Take ye. This is my body. And having taken the chalice, giving thanks, he gave it to them. And they all drank of it. And he said to them: This is my blood of the new testament, which shall be shed for many." (Mark 14:22-24. Also see Matt. 26:26-28, Luke 22:19-20, John 6:52-54, 1 Cor. 10:16)."

ALL JESUS Rules!!!!

But Im not. I could be an Atheist like you if I would have done terrible things in my life and tried to run from God out of fear.
if you would have become a muslim if forced by gun point than you would be betraying Christ and your church .Standing up for your convictions (faith) means your willing to die for them..I would have to say "see ya" cuz in no way ever would I give up Christ for Allah...

Many people in religion can't seem to cope with the idea that they might not join up once again with their deceased loved ones.

I don't have that problem.

If I never see them again ... that I accept.

They gave me enough happiness while they lived.

E pill can be used for medical reasons,as well as birth control ...as can surgery ..people suffer ..knit ....
I said many times abstinence is the only way to assure no pregnancy ..You ignore it ..in order to cast insult me as,a,mother .
The pill stops ovulation..i did not get my info from p to abort any one ...that's,a fantasy in your head .I get mine from books I've studied on medicine ...schooling and doctors
Should the pill fail and an egg be produced and United with a sperm ..one will get pregnant ...
At which point GOD willing a woman will have an unplanned for child .
AND as for my personal reasons for doing anything ...You know,nothing ..nor is it your business

The pill is an abortifacient, you are only fooling yourself. And its a very grave mistake. S hysterectomy for medical reasons is okay, for family planning, its a mortal sin. I am a mother, and what you have done is irresponsible.

It was the Catholics that WROTE the fantasy-tale of Jesus walking the earth with his apostles, and it was a whole lot of nonsense.

If Jesus had walked the earth with his Jewish apostles, they would have been discussing how to teach the people how to be better Jews in how they practiced pure and "unadulterated" Judaism ... period! End of story!!!

Q.Why is the Catholic Church opposed to birth control? Where in the Bible is birth control condemned as being contrary to the Will of God?

A. The Catholic Church is not opposed to birth control when it is accomplished by natural means, by SELF control. She is opposed only to birth control by artificial means, by the employment of pills, condoms, IUD's, foams, jellies, sterilization, non-completion of the act of sexual union – or any other means used to prevent conception from resulting from this act – because such means profane the marital embrace and dishonor the marriage contract. God slew Onan for practicing contraception (Gen. 38:9-10); the word "onanism" derives from Onan's deed.

In fact, up until the Church of England's Lambeth Conference of 1930, which accepted

contraception and thus broke with the Christian

tradition, contraception had been considered by

all Christian churches, both Catholic and

Protestant, to be gravely sinful. The Catholic

Church does not feel free to change the law of

God, as do Protestants.

In the New Testament, there is only one instance where sin is punished by God with immediate death, this was the fate of Ananias and Saphira, a husband and wife who went through the motions of giving a gift to God but fraudulently kept back part of it. The Bible says they lied to the Holy Spirit.(Acts 5:1-11). In contraception, two people go through the motions of an act of self-giving, but obstruct the natural fruition of their act, i.e., the conception of children, which is the ultimate purpose for which God created sexuality. Sexual union is a gift from God to the married, but by practicing contraception, married couples are accepting the pleasure God built into the act and yet denying Him its purpose, new people. They are in effect mocking God. But "Be not deceived, God is not mocked." (Gal. 6:7). Christ cursed the fig tree which, despite a fine external appearance, bore no fruit.(Matt. 21:19; Mark 11:14). Marriage is God's plan for populating Heaven, yet contracepting couples refuse Him the specific fruit of their marriage, which is children, when they engage in the act which should produce children yet frustrate the natural, God-intended result."

I really think you get your ideas from the secular media, and from those pro abort so called women who filled your head full of evil .Many Catholic women who used birth control have come back to the Church and repented, if you don't repent, rose remember what Our Lady of Fatima told the three little children, that many souls go to hell because of sins of the flesh. Maybe you need to talk to a priest, my church is all about forgiveness and we won't bite. catholicscomehome.org
Your telling me that many woman in the Catholic church that used birth control have repented and come back to the church? Of all the millions of Catholic women? When was this study done??Please site your source for this? The more you preach your arrogants to Rose the more you show others that your desperate.

You must believe that nonsense that John the Baptist baptized Jesus as a Catholic.

How silly!!!

John of the old testament was pure Jew, and he didn't baptize anybody ... much less another Jew into Catholicism.

If Jesus was a savior, he wouldn't have needed any ritual in a river to make him over again.

Not necessarily. I know a woman who took it just to make sure that she wasn't pregnant, as she didn't want to have to go through having an abortion later.

She added that the pill made her feel "sick."

Jesus would be repulsed at how his "One True Church" has corrupted the souls of many people through out time. He would be repulsed of the arrogants,ignorace,pridefulnes s and lies of his so called followers of HIS CHURCH...

I don't base that on her lack of belief in God, I base that on her actions to strip good people from their peace and comfort as they are getting older. You could add scoundrel to fascist, and pathetic loser too. It has nothing to do with theology or any other ology. Its based on pure actions by this woman. Its what she does not what she believes.
And as a Christian you should rise above all this and set and example. It is better to ignore someone than to lower yourself to their level....agree?

I can appreciate a bit of crazy wisdom, although it tends towards contempt. And that is to negative a view.
If light-hearted satire is meant to dispel deception, I see nothing wrong.
What satire? It's cold hard fact.

My God never murdered anyone.
My God never ordered anyone murdered.
I follow no murdering deity.

Nothing negative about that.
