Of course Catholics condemned each other to hell. That was the basis OF the Protestant religion.

By using words in the Catholic bible, Martin Luther condemned pope Leo X to an eternity in hell as being the anti-Christ ... while at the same time claiming that only God could judge who would go to hell.

And all of the hatred those men spewed at each other, was preached as being in the cause of helping humanity find "universal LOVE."

If you people don't choose to wake up ... the onus is on you.

Preacher ... "I don't know the mind of God, but I know this much, that if you don't join my religion you will spend eternity in hell."

Wake up people!

You don't even read the the scripture except for what the church tells you to read. You have no clue of all of Christ's teachings so you cannot possibly know if the interpretations are wrong or not.

You makr your church sound like a cult.

Im saying the Bible doesn't TEACH to go by the Bible alone. "All Scripture is profitable". We agree on that.
And whats this about me believing the Pope's words are more important than whats in the Bible?? I never said that. Look, you guys bestow allot more authority on the Pope than he actually has. No Pope has the authority to go against the word of God, both written and oral. No pope ever has in his teaching capacity. He would be rebuked.
And you won't face your dillema...... if it is only the Bible, then WHO'S interpretations?
I'll ask you the same question I asked marge, who didn't respond.

Does your church teach all of what Christ taught and the commandments He gave us? For instance,

Mark 13:37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Hi Hojo.......
INFORMATION:
Did you know the majority of roman catholic priests in america and a large portion of the laity do not like the new sunday missal that went into service in 2011?

Are you with the majority on this or do you go against the consensus?

From the catholic news desk.

........This survey shows fairly widespread skepticism about the new Missal by U.S. Catholic priests, with strong differences in opinion between the majority of priests who do not like the Missal and the minority who do. Among the principal findings of this survey:

.........Priests do not like the new text - 59% do not like it, compared to 39% who do.

....By a similar margin, 57% to 36%, priests do not like the more formal style of language, with over one-third (35%) strongly disliking the new language.

......Similarly, only 35% of priests think that the new translation is an improvement on the old one, against 56% who do not think it is an improvement. Over one- third of priests (34%) strongly disagree that the new Missal is an improvement.

.....Priests overwhelmingly think that some of the language is awkward and distracting - 80% agree with this statement, with nearly three out of five (59%) agreeing strongly with this negative appraisal.
More than three in five priests (61%) think that the new translation urgently needs to be revised, with 43% strongly agreeing that it urgently needs revision. Only 29% disagree that the new Missal needs revision.
Similarly, more than three in five priests (61%) do not think work should go forward translating the Liturgy of the Hours and other sacraments in the same style as the new Missal, with 43% strongly disagreeing with this work continuing. Only slightly more than three in ten priests (32%) would like to see translation work continue in the same style.
Most priests (55%) are not confident that priests' translation views will be taken seriously, with less than one-quarter of priests (24%) confident their views will be taken seriously.

.....Nearly half of all priests (49%) do not approve of the Holy See's leadership in bringing about the new Missal, with nearly three in ten priests (29%) strongly disapproving of the Holy See's role. Less than two out of five priests (39%) approve of the Holy See's leadership on the new Missal.

.....Back to the drawing board!

All religion is Cult. You simply perceive that your specialty is HOLY because you have programmed your brain-cells to accept that nonsense as universal truth.

And who programmed you to stay in some church for 70 years when as you say, you knew the scriptures weren't true as a little girl?

LTM is a fraud that claims to have terrible eyesight, yet can read all the fine print that others post on the forum.

Posting all capital letters is comparable to emphasizing that "What 'I' state is VERY IMPORTANT!"

I went to church to ask questions of my own mind why the Protestant preachers were so arrogant as to believe that a god would choose them rather than other preachers to know the one and only universal truth.

It took me 70 years to come to conclude that all religion is based on arrogance and/or FEAR of HELLS, as in, "If I'm NOT preaching universal truth ... then my fate will be eternal hell. So I better have complete faith in my ability to KNOW and in turn preach universal truth.

There are men now admitting that they are Atheists while still standing up preaching religion at their "flocks" as being universal truth.

They have no skills to support their families in any other way, so they fool members of the congregations into believing their sermons are sincere.

And really ... they are selling lies to the members of congregations that only want lies ... so the members "aren't" being ripped off.

They came to church and were reinforced with the words that they are saved.

They received their money's worth, so they shouldn't complain.

You went to church for 70 years because you wanted to know why Protestant preachers are so arrogant? That was your purpose? Strange.

That means that men of your church were not finished.
And of course they were not finished. Theologians were paid to keep writing ... so they never stopped writing.
(lol)!

Christians claim they are the new branch of Judiasm, and protestants claim they are the new branch from catholicism.

.... I wonder what the next branch will be, that will sprout?

Keep the faith---as I know you will!!!!.
"Bible onlyfundamentalists" LOL!!!

i gues the alternative to being a 'Bible only' to you, is being a roman mary/ashteroth worshiping, pope/caesar ring/ass kissing & pedophile advocate!

As a child yes. After that I struggled to come to my senses about why ALL religion made no sense to me.

At last I came to conclude that all theologians were either liars on purpose ... or totally deluded to in turn believe they knew and know universal truth ... as do you.
