Do you not judge those who are within the church? 13But those who are outside, God judges. REMOVE THE WICKED MAN FROM AMONG YOURSELVES. 1 Cor 5
Shut it Marge. You remind me of that fanatic lady in "The Mist",(a Stephen King film)

You have no clue what the scriptures are saying nor what Pope Francis was saying. I would explain what the Pope meant, but you'd ignore it because that's how fanatics function. They ignore truths. I'm thankful I'm young enough that I'll see this plague of fundamentalism come to an end. Catholics started the New Evangelization a few yrs ago. Its going to take at least a generation to turn the tide. Its your worst nightmare to have Catholics stand on street corners and go door to door. You guys have no answer to Catholicism. They'll make you ashamed to be using their Holy Book against them.

Scriptures can be USED by vain, greedy, and malicious people.

The point is don't use them that way!

And don't say things against the scriptures, nor anyone else. Instead be humble, contrite, and meek. If you aren't learning that from scripture, then your on the wrong road.

Is drug addiction or alcohol addiction a sin? many people are born addicted to drugs through no fault of their own. Its entirely reasonable to think SOME people are born attracted to the same sex. I don't believe all homosexuals were born that way. Some had daddy issues and something triggered this lifestyle.

Wow it must be terrible to be inside your head. what a horrible way to be thinking.
Having been caught under the spell of religion, I fully understand that it brings a sense of security in the idea that a creator exists as a pal when in need of comfort.

But I never understood the mindset of people in religion who could believe that a creator would love them and reject others.

That was a thought I was "thankfully" never willing to entertain.

Where do you find Lent in the Bible?
Give BOOK CHAPTER AND VERSE PLEASE.....
YOU give me book, chapter and verse where Christ gives us the list of Books.

Kind of odd that the Lord willed for us to have the Bible as the foundation of His Ministry, but only a few of His Apostles wrote, and nothing was compiled into a Bible until almost 400 yrs after He rose.
Then it was another 1,000 yrs before the Catholic Church broke the Bible into chapter/verses. Now people like you demand book, chapter and verse for the Church to explain themselves??
You'd have no clue about the Bible in the first place, and no clue on where to place Chapters and verses.

As much as your arrogant will demands it to be true ... no Jewish Rabbi that went by the prestigious title of Rabboni would ever teach Catholicism as being based on truth. EVER!!!

Stomp your Catholicized feet in a tantrum if it so pleases you ... but you can't turn (within the theology) a king of the Jews into a Catholic pope, cardinal or a priest or even a supporter of Catholic nuns.

It just would NOT occur!!!

Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday"—that is, the final day before the penitential season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. While Mardi Gras has no official status in the Catholic Church, it is a custom in many Catholic countries to mark the day with parties and feasting, in particular eating those foods from which one will fast during Lent.

The New Testament and Christian antisemitism

1.The Jews are culpable for crucifying Jesus - as such they are guilty of deicide
2.The tribulations of the Jewish people throughout history constitute God's punishment of them for killing Jesus
3.Jesus originally came to preach only to the Jews, but when they rejected him, he abandoned them for gentiles instead
4.The Children of Israel were God's original chosen people by virtue of an ancient covenant, but by rejecting Jesus they forfeited their chosenness - and now, by virtue of a New Covenant (or "testament"), Christians have replaced the Jews as God's chosen people, the Church having become the "People of God."
5.The Jewish Bible (the so-called "Old Testament") repeatedly portrays the opaqueness and stubbornness of the Jewish people and their disloyalty to God.
6.The Jewish Bible contains many predictions of the coming of Jesus as the Messiah (or "Christ"), yet the Jews are blind to the meaning of their own Bible.
7.By the time of Jesus' ministry, Judaism had ceased to be a living faith.
8.Judaism's essence is a restrictive and burdensome legalism.
9.Christianity emphasizes excessive love, while Judaism maintains a balance of justice, God of wrath and love of peace.[5]
10.Judaism's oppressiveness reflects the disposition of Jesus' opponents called "Pharisees" (predecessors of the "rabbis"), who in their teachings and behavior were hypocrites (see Woes of the Pharisees).

People in every new religion felt a need to vilify the believers that had faith in the old religion, the purpose being to lure new devotees into the new religion and away from the old one.

It was common practice, and still continues to this day.

Religion is all about preachers blabbing nonsense here and there all over the earth ... "FOLLOW ME ... I KNOW THE ONE AND ONLY TRUTH that guarantees eternal bliss in THE afterlife."

BUNK!!!

Mathew 9: 14-15 "then came to Him the disciples of John, saying "why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but thy disciples fast not?" And Jesus said to them, "can the children of the bridechamber as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them, and then they shall fast"

Lent is a period of fasting and prayer for Catholics that lasts 40 days. The reason that Lent lasts 40 days is that 40 is the traditional number of judgement and spiritual testing in the Bible (Gal 7:4, Ex 24:18, 34:28, Nm13:25,14:33, Jn 3:4)
Lent bears particular relationships to the 40 days Christ spent fasting in the desert before entering into His public ministry (Mt 4:1-11) Catholics imitate Christ by spending 40 days in spiritual discipline before celebrating Christ's triumph over sin and death.

Fasting is a biblical discipline that can be defended from both the OT and NT. Christ expected His disciples to fast (mt 9: 14-15) and issued instuctions for how how they should do so (Mt 6: 16-18)

Abstinence from certain foods is also a biblical discipline. In Daniel 10: 2-3 we read "in those days I, Daniel, was mourning for three weeks. I ate no delicacies, no meat or wine entered my mouth, nor did i anoint myself at all, for three full weeks"
Catholics use a practice similar to Daniel's when, as a way of commemorating Christ's crucifixion on a Friday, they abstain from eating meat on that day of the week during Lent. The only kind of flesh they eat on Friday is fish, which is a symbol of Christ.

Putting ashes on ones forehead (ash Wednesday kicks off 40 days of fasting until Easter) has a Biblical parallel.

The Jews using their one-god dogma, vilified the Jews that earlier believed in multiple gods ... and so it went all the way back through time, as the new theologians vilified the old ones as preaching lies, and prided their selves in preaching nothing but the TRUTH.

You will see the lies, but only when you want to recognize them AS lies.

This one is adamant in preaching Catholicism as TRUTH. And he won't change unless he first and foremost chooses to change his self-righteous attitude.

Yes, many people, BABIES, are born addicted to drugs through no fault of their own. Not adults idiot.

OldCly said, quote, " Its entirely reasonable to think SOME people are born attracted to the same sex. I don't believe all homosexuals were born that way." End quote.

Nobody, not ever, was born a homosexual. Just as nobody, not ever, was born a liar, murderer and a thief. Lying, murdering and stealing is a CHOICE. Again, have you ever heard of FREE WILL.

OldCly said, quote, "Some had daddy issues and something triggered this lifestyle." End quote.

Daddy issues? Something triggered this lifestyle? Ever heard of SIN. And to sin is a CHOICE. Every society that ever existed knew the difference between right and wrong. EVERY. Do you know the difference OldCly?

Doesn't matter.

What matters is from whence the modern Christian theology arises.

It likely arises through Secret Mark.
