I went the protestant route for yrs. I found like you said,which was hands in the air,waving,vocal praise. It was loud and emotional for sure but,I noticed that it was alot of lip service without the obedience that Christ wanted. In other words,people felt that screaming "PRAISE THE LORD" in a building was more important than following the commandments and scripture.

I've been on a journey for much of my young adult life(young 20's-40's) until I found by accident(it was no accident,it was my finally 100 percent giving my will over) the Catholic church. No,we are not perfect but Christs church is always. I did have reservations prior to that so called find,but during much prayer and study,I found his truth EXACTLY how he intended and began it while on earth :-) Praise be to God!!!

Is,this such a time when NO ONE goes hungry ??
Admittedly he'd,like it now much more than in the Muddle,Ages .
Had he seen his,fellow Jews in bondage forced into conversion This,would not have sat well
As,for our services ..you'd be surprised at the richness of the sermons ..the preaching and music in some of our churches .the people living up their hands in true praises ..
The feelings of love..And seeing folks baptized ..seeing sincere conversions ..acceptance of Christ
The,Baptisms of newer believers
In fonts,..beaches ..he'd,feel right at home .
Admittedly ed developer at home in some than others,.
I don't think. He'd feel comfortable,with Joel Osteen ..
Our Lords,Supper uses the same words,that Jesus,did.
I think actually he would feel more at home in the mission fields,of Christianity..CATHOLUC and non Catholic ..

Why should I bother conversing with you when you draw such bizarre conclusions? how on earth did your brain make a connection that I was saying the Bible sucks??
The 73 Books of sacred scripture are the word of God. Its unbelievable how entwined those scriptures are with the Catholic Church. And the Mass makes those books come alive in ways you couldn't imagine, sir.

That's exactly why I'm convinced you are all bible idolaters. These books have become your god.

And I'm.glad for you ..really .

The,Holy Spirit can work when and how,He Chooses to bring souls,to Christ ...

Thing is,it's Not the same Church ..though a hundred times closer than it was before the Reformation..
Not only did he Reformation pave the way for bringing Faith to the,New,World and throughout the,world ...bibles to every corner of the earth even to the present day as that lovely story Marge posed about
NORTH KOREA,...But it led to the divestment of much of at least the secular power of the,RCC ..And that was by all appearances a,good thing .
It led to Vatican 2 and some ecumenical movement ..it led to some of your POPES recognizing Chritian belief in others ..apologies to the Jewish people .
AMAZING GRACE indeed .

God uses all things ..including the history of the,RCC to the GOOD ..

WE serve a,Great God .

And their are,INO Christians,in churches of EVERY denominations,..look.at Pelosi, Biden Kerry, Catholics for Choice .

About the last thing I wanted to be was Catholic.(although I was baptized and semi- raised in the faith) when I was older I was not.

My personal desire was to join a evangelical mega Church like I would see on tv. I even considered Jehovah's Witness. Catholicism never really entered my mind until I found out something was wrong with these protestant groups. Seriously, I would mention I grew up Catholic, and the pastor or elders would launch into a speech about the evils of the Roman Catholic Church. Now, I never liked sitting in Church, the Mass was boring and the rules sucked. But I never once thought of it all as evil. Then, they would say all these other lies that I knew weren't true. Worshiping Mary? Lol. I definitely knew we didn't worship Mary when I was younger, and I also knew the honor we gave her didn't offend Jesus! I once was told that Catholics believe Purgatory is a second chance at redemption. I talked to a Priest, found out the truth and went to the in- law that told me that and they STILL wouldn't retract. They STILL told me I was wrong. They STILL continued on preaching a lie about Catholics. Crazy.
Anyway, they all had their chance to convince me. I gave them an honest fair try and they failed because they entwine so much deception into their faith. Ridiculous. They literally can not have a religion unless they falsely accuse the Catholic faith. But through all that, I still love them. I'll stop there.

The Catholics were the first ones to use the word Christian in the first century AD.
Not sure about specific Catholic Bible-babble but many Christians claim that Jesus and the Bible existed before the Creation and use John 1 as "proof".

It is impossible to use logic and reality with such insanity.

Good for you..Really ..You are happy with the CHURCH in which you worship.

The Holy Spirit lifted you up out of your life .
I never would look to a metaphoric

Not one person..nor pastor in the Chur h I was baptized in talked about the RCC..in fact we were a small congregation..after talking with the pastor we had and the other members ..we opened our Church on Good Friday for quiet contemplation and prayer ..we,all came as we could ..it was lovely ..And yes,I suggested it..they knew it came from.my years,as a Catholic...everyone liked it .

Imagine that ....not one person threw a rock at me..nor put down the idea,.

They commemorated the Passover supper ..And of course had Sunday service ..as usual. But this,was not their tradition..

As in it was a,great time for Contemplation of he Passion..

See Clay ...You cannot judge peoples,hearts by one,or several Churches,.I loved that small Church..our worship and the people in it .
AND IT WAS NOT AS A CATHOLIC
That I realized the,full extent of what CHRIST did for us,
HE DID IT ALL ..HIS,SACRIFICE ..we are,BLOOD BOUGHT CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH GOD ..
We accept HE sAcrifice BY FAITH ..not ritual ...repent and follow Him

But NOTHING WE DO could pay for ONE SIN....iF HE,DID NOT TAKE ALL SIN ON THAT CROSS....there is nothing ..no more perfect sacrifice .

WE MUST REPENT OUR SIN....each and every one ..But the TREASURY o pay for he Sin is,not the Works of Saints or ourselves ..it was FINISHED..bought and paid ..at Calvary .

This year I went to Stations,..I still think the Catholic Church devotion to thE Passion a wonderful.thing .

You think.I hate the,Church..I do not .

There were Catholics long before the bible became an ITEM.
I agree, I am merely pointing out there fallacy that their Bible existed prior to 350AD. It didn't.

There also many othe3r sects of Christianity before Constantine banned them (IE: killed and tortured them int conversion and burned their tests).
It was different outside Roman Control where the non-Pauline sects would be 'organized' under Muhammad.

Islam is just another Christian cult and just as 'valid' as Catholicism.

I suggest that people of religion that hang around in groups find it more difficult to leave the group, than a person that has been religious, but has not been involved in (for instance) a church, mosque or synagogue.

I never was one to cotton to group activity concerning religion, and so when I left religion, I did it on my own and in turn never lost any so-called "friends" that were certain I had become a traitor to their "god."

From my perspective ALL religion that depends on ritualistic superstition based all that nonsense on sorcery, or witchcraft, or fortune-telling, or voodoo, or shamanism, et cetera.

You don't appreciated that terminology because you want to perceive that you and your group are HOLY and others are evil. But I perceive that to be fair, all religion should painted by the same brush.

You are very kind.
Orthodoxy has 2,000 years of theologians. If rational debate and discussion is your thing, you can find a lifetime of reading, information, and debate to fill your curious mind.

But, for Orthodox, the only reason theologians wrote, detailed and debated these subjects was to help those who did not know Jesus know something about Him. I

n other words, Orthodoxy has theology, but that is because people outside like to talk about it. Orthodoxy is about something totally different.

It is about falling in love.

We are not expected to understand what is too difficult for us, we are not expected to comprehend the incomprehensible

God is not interested in His people being right ABOUT Him, but being abiding (or living) IN Him.

God wants us to fall in love with Him, to revel in Him, to abide in Him.

This process of love falling deeper in love is never ending, because the God with whom we fall in love is infinite.

As far as your thing about a Priest who disagrees with a Marian doctrine? Who cares? There are tons of Priests and laity who disagree with certain aspects of the Church. Sometimes that even includes dogma. I'm sorry you thought it was a shocking bombshell.
If the Priest wants, he can leave the CC, pay $29.99 on the internet and become a minister. He can buy an old Blockbuster Video store and in no time, he'll have his own 'church'. Basically that's how your Protestantism began anyway.

I suggest that Solomon and Moses were made-up characters by Jewish theologians.

Theologians were and still are always busy in their imaginations creating fictitious scenarios ... as that was and is how they earned and still earn their KEEPS.

Gerald Gardner was one of the most modern theologians that created quite a STIR with his fictional nonsense.
