I was trying ..yesterday to point out WHAT PEOPLE SEE ...And it seems,your POPE sees,it .
If I say I don't think Peter would sit in HIS,CHAIR ..I don't .
There is,much good about your Church ..And I don't hate CATHOLics ..I think a,great many love Jesus,....
We could all do more,charitably ...But I'd never comment in your lifestyle since I don't know it ...as either you or Anthony did .
I'm for personal giving ..I disagree with Francis,socialistic politics ..especially given the wealth of the CHURCH ..bureaucracies waste money ..if he can clean house in Rome good for Him .more money for charity. Great ..Good schools ..Good people hopefully ...
Wish He could clean ours,but he can't do IMO should not urge our politics toward socialism. Esp since the libs,are pro choice ...confused message,..
I already said this ..it was NOT PERSONAL ...I have no opinion on who
is rich or poor on here..who gives enough to charity ..
Who is,sAved who isn't .
Jesus,knows the answers to all theses questions ..I can only answer for myself ...to HIM. Not o anyone here who.thinks I don't do enough ..
I heard Rush Limbaugh. I like Rush and agree with him on almost everything, however, he latched onto the popes writing and assumed he was directing at the US. That's not the case. Pope Francis is from Buenos Aires, Argentina. The disparity between rich and poor there is horrible. There are many developing countries in South America and elsewhere that have free market capitalism with no safety net for the poor like we have. That's to whom his comments were directed.

Hmmmm...."examine yourself".

And you want to continuously rebuke what Jesus taught that isn't in the canon.
You must be a heretic too.
How's this for a "sermon" back at you???

Christmas is NOT based on the idea that Jesus loves Jews. OH NO! According to Catholic theology, Jesus quit loving Jews when he converted to Catholicism and started working in Catholic confessionals.

You'll see the lies ... but only when you choose to wake up from your lazy slumbers of idiocy.

Apparently the Gnostic that believed in Jesus NEVER lied.

Gnostics believed that there were actually two Gods, and that the God of the Jews was an evil or ignorant creator who deceived people.

The Catholics also taught that the god of the Jews was an evil deceiver ... but they didn't try to make him into TWO gods as did the Gnostics. They simply tried to imply that the one god "saw the light" and converted to Catholicism.

I've been thinking (dangerous, I know :), and decided that I didn't wish to seem condemning of any person...just of the shortcomings of the flesh.(We have ALL sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.)
All of you (I believe) are sincere about what you believe...but we NEED to believe and live by what Jesus taught. He said that the greatest commandment is to 'love God with all your heart'. Then He said that the second commandment was JUST LIKE THE FIRST...'LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF'.
In other words, if one loves ones neighbor, they are loving God Himself. John said that 'if one says he loves God, but hates his brother, HE/SHE IS A LIAR!'
There are many 'opinions', but one Truth (LOVE). If we have learned different 'ways', we can never come to Truth, until we (Isaiah said) "Come now, let us reason together." Name-calling and bitter feelings will NEVER prove us 'right' with God.
Jesus said that when one receives the HOLY Spirit, they SHALL (must, or 'have to') be witnesses of Himself. HIS Spirit will reveal Himself if He is in us.(Wit...means to KNOW 'ness' is one who KNOWS...has actually experienced)
Let us reveal His 'rightness', not our own which is faulty.
MERRY CHRISTMAS

Amen.

I have been reading, and absorbing as of late, the race within ourselves to be repentant and obedient to God. It is much like the race of John and Peter to the "empty" tomb....So let us first be repentant to enter the tomb(our emptiness, our flesh), and then be obedient, as was John to love God and each other.

What I find unseemly Rose is your refusal to read what I write and examine the links I provide. I always read the links you guys post. The reason for owning cathedrals and artwork is simple to grasp, we've explained it several times, you're just not interested in moving beyond your obvious biases. I frankly don't care if you think it's right or not, it's not for you to judge. IMHO you ought to examine yourself and try to determine why you harbor such bigotry.
And as usual you missed the point ..That YOUR POPE seems to get ...appearances at ODDS with EHAT HE is telling the WORLD THEY SHOULD DO ..You don't see THAT????

I know it's,all for Jesus,...And protecting treasures ...

And when Jesus comes HE WILL be able to take or Destroy what HE CHOOSES ..HE can protect any art work HE WANTS,TO ...or let the original artists recreate them .......

Can you not see no matter how much charity the Church does ..it's the palace people see when the Pope calls for Charity ..

Peter would not sit in That CHair ..

I'm not saying give away religious treAsures to have them spit on ..at his point I do not know the answer ...if I see it ..AND I DON'T HAE HE CHURCH . despite what you think ....But if I see it ..he world and YOUR POPE sees it ...But you choose to think every statement as bigotry ..

So be it ...

Once he admits that religion is a hoax ... that is when he will gain my respect.
Until then, he is still placing value on Catholicism ... HIS "personalized" version ... period!
The catholic religion is not only a hoax, but those who call themselves a catholic are lost eternally, their also lost because of the doctrine they go by which is simply made up by a few members who decided to please the Roman dignitaries and thus you have the pitiful man made catholic church in all it's sin. The catholic church is nothing more than an excuse of a church with no morals and care for anybody but itself, it's a diseased infested money maker who preys on the poor. The catholic church is an abomination unto the Lord and the Lord will have his vengeance on the catholic church.

Well I don't try to pretend I'm HOLY ... as it saves a lot of time and cuts right to the chase.
So I suggest you take off all your phony covers of holiness, put the boxing gloves on and let's get right at it.

Correct: no one inherits another one's sin....
Sin is an act COMMITTED by the individual person.
Do you understand that God is speaking through Paul and the other apostles?
1 Corinthians 2:7-13
7 No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.
8 None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 However, as it is written:
“What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”—
the things God has prepared for those who love him—
10 these are the things God has REVEALED to US by his Spirit.
The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.
11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
12 What we have received is NOT the spirit of the world, but ~~~~~the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.~~~~~
13 This is what we speak, NOT in words taught us by HUMAN wisdom but <<<<<in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.>>>>>
***do you understand this?
NOT in words taught us by HUMAN wisdom BUT in words taught by the SPIRIT (Spirit of God,) explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.....
What was passed on were God’s words through the apostles.....
Have you ever read these verses about sin?

Romans 5:12-13, 12 "Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned—13 for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law."

Let's see how accurate you were.....shall we?

"Christmas is NOT based on the idea that Jesus loves Jews. OH NO! According to Catholic theology, Jesus quit loving Jews when he converted to Catholicism and started working in Catholic confessionals."
- Jesus never converted to Catholicism. Only men have placed this helm upon him. You are wrong.
- Jesus doesn't work in confessionals - no matter what the religion people are ascribing to him. Jesus is dead and has been for quite some time.

"You'll see the lies ... but only when you choose to wake up from your lazy slumbers of idiocy."
- lazy slumbers of idiocy?
+ You'll have to be more clear on your assessment. How is a belief a "lazy slumber of idiocy"? Especially, since you "slept" with it under your pillow for something like 70 years?

There you go again, making claims without ever supporting them.

*sighs*

I'm curious - how is a belief, idiocy?

The Roman Catholic church not the small "c" catholic (universal) church which is Christianity and serves Jesus Christ not a pope (vicar). Correct?

"so voters here are not more confused"

- Voters?

Votes are only tabulated at the Vatican when men have to decide who will be "God's Vicar on Earth".

Please tell me the last time you were able to "Vote" on doctrine or eschatology.

More pointedly - when was the last time you chose to believe in a doctrine that was presented to you? You know - the moment you got to choose what you wanted to believe or not?

So far I think Pope Francis is doing a good job. He is not putting up with the secrecy that the church has been operating under for too many years.
Pope Benedict did not resign because he was tired. he resigned because he was not addressing the problems of the church and he was feeling the pressure from the rest of the vatican poohbahs.
Actually he resigned due to health and age. When first elected, he made statement referring to these things in contemplating taking the office or not. As history states, he took office.
