"Does the Catholic Church still sell indulgences? "

That's like asking, "Have you stopped beating your wife?" The Catholic Church does not now nor has it ever approved the sale of indulgences. This is to be distinguished from the undeniable fact that individual Catholics (perhaps the best known of them being the German Dominican Johann Tetzel [1465-1519]) did sell indulgences--but in doing so they acted contrary to explicit Church regulations. This practice is utterly opposed to the Catholic Church's teaching on indulgences, and it cannot be regarded as a teaching or practice of the Church.

The Sacraments are the word of God. They were installed by Jesus Christ and preached by the Apostles. You're on the outside of the Church looking in. So to you, they look like unnecessary rituals and symbols. Thankfully, your opinion on it has no bearing on the truth. The word of God can't be silenced.
What's that? Oh the word of God is only what some of the Apostles managed to document in writing? Do you happen to have a Bible verse that says the word of God is only what's been documented in writing?
You guys use about 1/3 of the word of God. I'm amazed you have some semblance of a religion. However, the spiraling chaos of the born again evangelical movement is displayed for all to see. At least normal protestants have some semblance of order and continuity. They are being dissected every year though. Many Lutheran and Anglicans have come home to Rome lately.
Poshhhh...

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Since the man of God is "thoroughly furnished" by all scripture, inspired of God, unto good works....what else is necessary????!!!!

How can he be more "thoroughly furnished"????!!!!

Hank we can debate all day. Bottom line, baptism adds to the sacrifice of Christ at the cross...period.
and you are saying that folks like Abraham are saved differently than Christians today.
Where (in the OT) does it say that Abrum was "saved"...or Moses for that matter..he wasn't even allowed to enter the promised land.

Then why don't you instead of giving divorces? You'd rather they live in adulterous unions?

----------
"What God has joined together, let NO man put asunder." The person who remarries after an annulment is also living in adultery". Annul is just another word for 'divorce'.

Catholics are not compelled to pay for anything,
..when u pass the basket for donation when u pray for people. Duh!

"There can be no absolute certainty in this life about one’s salvation (“[W]ork out your salvation in fear and trembling”[Phil 2:12]). The Church affirms our free will and the necessity of our response (ever by grace) to God’s outreach.

Speaking of knowing the power of Christ’s resurrection, St. Paul wrote,“Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect; but I press on to make it my own”(Phil 3:12). He used the figure of a footrace to tell us in this life we all face the possibility of being lost forever. As for winning “the prize,”“I pommel my body and subdue it, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified”(1 Cor. 9:27).

Only as we enter purgatory can we have absolute certainty of entering heaven.“All who die in God’s grace and friendship but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven” Undergoing purgatory marks the ultimate and final surrender of the soul to God.

“[H]e who has died is freed from sin”(Rom. 6:7)."

Nothing unclean shall enter (Rev.21:27)

I am glad you know all these scriptures above..

have you ever considered applying them to them yourself?...

Jesus said

Mat_23:14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

a pretense ....that a imaginary place called purgatory exist and

charge for the prayers/services

WE might be able to work together. The COMMISION is,to spread the FAITH IN JESUS ...HIS,LOVE ..HIS SACRIFICE...to the ends of the earth until the day of HIS Return..

Neither the announcing of a POPE ..your schism ..the Reformation ..the Evangelical movement ...none of it took Him by surprise ...

And who.AM I ..to say the Love of God is,not in anyone else...

Christ was not a great fan of RELIGION for its own sake ...as the priests seemed to love the TEMPle more than the Father ...
