The Roman Catholic Church traces its history to Jesus Christ and the Apostles. Over the course of centuries it developed a highly sophisticated theology and an elaborate organizational structure headed by the papacy, the oldest continuing absolute monarchy in the world.

The number of Roman Catholics in the world (nearly 1.1 billion) is greater than that of nearly all other religious traditions. There are more Roman Catholics than all other Christians combined and more Roman Catholics than all Buddhists or Hindus. Although there are more Muslims than Roman Catholics, the number of Roman Catholics is greater than that of the individual traditions of Shīʿite and Sunni Islam.

These incontestable statistical and historical facts suggest that some understanding of Roman Catholicism—its history, its institutional structure, its beliefs and practices, and its place in the world—is an indispensable component of cultural literacy, regardless of how one may individually answer the ultimate questions of life and death and faith. Without a grasp of what Roman Catholicism is,...(200 of 60,236 words)

The Two BabylonsEdit
Main article: The Two Babylons
This book was initially published in 1853 as a pamphlet, then greatly revised and expanded and released as a book in 1858. Hislop's work has been described as conspiracy theory propaganda which mixed "sketchy knowledge of Middle Eastern antiquity with a vivid imagination."[1]
Rated five stars:
For anyone that is not satisfied with accepting what we are told is the truth but, likes to see the evidence historically and biblically this is the book for you. However, Alexander Hislop highlights church practices that do not have their root in the bible at all.

Extremely, challenging yet I believe necessary for the seeker of truth.
----

Where did the practices and beliefs of Roman Catholicism come from? In this scholarly classic, first published over eighty years ago, Alexander Hislop reveals that many Roman Catholic teachings did not originate with Christ or the Bible, but were adopted from ancient pagan Babylonian religion, and given Christian names.

Although difficult reading, this book accurately provides a fascinating historical in-depth examination of the shocking similarities between the practices of ancient Babylonian religion and those of today's Roman Catholic church.

.....Straight people like myself or closet gay people maybe like you having sex outside marriage is no more sinful than someone committing any other sin. Missing Sunday mass is the same level of sin as someone murdering someone. Mortal sin.

.....We could make a list a hundred pages long of sins that all have the same degree of what the church calls venial sin. We could make the same long list of sins considered mortal. All are forgivable according to the church.

.....Why single out people who have had or are having sex outside marriage? If there was a way to total which sin is most popular or most common, having sex outside marriage or cheating on ones spouse is right near the top and I would say the majority of people have been there......including me.

.....Didn't you have sex before you were married? Weren't you part of american grafitti when you were a teenager like most americans.

....Oh! the memories I have. I just wish I could remember them all...,(lol)......I wonder what those girls from back in the day are doing right now? Maybe Star they are wondering what Magic Mike is doing too...(lol)

.....and just think Star C,....Confession back then cleared all those nasty (lol) little sins.

"Who's roundness is so important an element in the Romish Mystery"
Lol. Romish? I think fanatics stopped using that word around the time of the Civil War. Nice of you to recycle it again.
In 33 AD, baked unleavened bread was round. Kinda like the Sun. He he. If you don't believe me, ask a Jewish rabbi. Pita bread (slightly leavened) and tortillas are also round.
In truth, Jesus held up a round piece of bread, and said "this is my body".
Those were some of His words...spoken symbolically...

The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.

Otherwise, as Catholics, taken in the literal sense, Christ is teaching cannibalism...

The word SIN itself suggests that "God" is offended. I suggest that the all "sincere" religious preachers are offended when others won't believe they speak on behalf of gods.

What you are saying is not based on Scripture or you failed to include it...this correct teaching is supported by Scripture:

VI. The Church

A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel; observing the two ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. Each congregation operates under the Lordship of Christ through democratic processes. In such a congregation each member is responsible and accountable to Christ as Lord. Its scriptural officers are pastors and deacons. While both men and women are gifted for service in the church, the office of pastor is limited to men as qualified by Scripture.

The New Testament speaks also of the church as the Body of Christ which includes all of the redeemed of all the ages, believers from every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation.

Matthew 16:15-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-42,47; 5:11-14; 6:3-6; 13:1-3; 14:23,27; 15:1-30; 16:5; 20:28; Romans 1:7; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 3:16; 5:4-5; 7:17; 9:13-14; 12; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:8-11,21; 5:22-32; Philippians 1:1; Colossians 1:18; 1 Timothy 2:9-14; 3:1-15; 4:14; Hebrews 11:39-40; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 2-3; 21:2-3
