The Son of Man hath power on earth to forgive sins."—Matthew 9:6.

EHOLD one of the great Physician's mightiest arts: He has power to forgive sin! While here He lived below, before the ransom had been paid, before the blood had been literally sprinkled on the mercy-seat, He had power to forgive sin. Hath He not power to do it now that He hath died? What power must dwell in Him who to the utmost farthing has faithfully discharged the debts of His people! He has boundless power now that He has finished transgression and made an end of sin. If ye doubt it, see Him rising from the dead! behold Him in ascending splendour raised to the right hand of God! Hear Him pleading before the eternal Father, pointing to His wounds, urging the merit of His sacred passion! What power to forgive is here! "He hath ascended on high, and received gifts for men." "He is exalted on high to give repentance and remission of sins." The most crimson sins are removed by the crimson of His blood. At this moment, dear reader, whatever thy sinfulness, Christ has power to pardon, power to pardon thee, and millions such as thou art. A word will speak it. He has nothing more to do to win thy pardon; all the atoning work is done. He can, in answer to thy tears, forgive thy sins today, and make thee know it. He can breathe into thy soul at this very moment a peace with God which passeth all understanding, which shall spring from perfect remission of thy manifold iniquities. Dost thou believe that? I trust thou believest it. Mayst thou experience now the power of Jesus to forgive sin! Waste no time in applying to the Physician of souls, but hasten to Him with words like these:—

"Jesus! Master! hear my cry;
Save me, heal me with a word;
Fainting at Thy feet I lie,
Thou my whisper'd plaint hast heard

Canon Rachel Mann, 44, said she believed a shift was currently taking place in the area of sexuality in the same way it did on slavery two centuries ago.

Of Course the Catholic church is the first Catholic church.

Who in their right mind would argue with that issue?

It's comparable to stating that the first Protestant church is the first Protestant church.

None of those arguments have anything in common with universal truth.

To know universal truth was the brag of all theologians since the word came into male-created human language.

Before that word theologian existed, men simply philosophized about the word universal truth.

From theologos "one discoursing on the gods" ... men then took the GIANT leap of claiming they KNEW the minds of the gods.

That is when the word theologian became RESPECTED by followers of cults who believed their leaders KNEW the one and only universal truth. And that was a HUGE mistake.

aw! the Pope says violence in Iraq offends God.
Ya think?
But the murder of heretics down through the centuries was a whole 'nother ballgame. Imagine that.
If it weren't for the 'reformation' Catholics would still be murdering heretics and calling it God's will being done.

Sounds familiar???

The Creation of Humans

This poem begins with a description of how the gods had to work for their bread by digging out irrigation canals:

The gods were dredging the rivers,
were piling up their silt
on projecting bends--
and the gods lugging the clay
began complaining

Nammu, who is either the sea or the goddess of the riverbed, goes to her son Enki, who is asleep in the deep (the Apsu) and entreats him to rise from his bed and "fashion servants of the gods" (Kramer, History Begins 109). Enki, who after all is the god of wisdom, thinks of the germinating powers of the clay and water of the abyss, and he tells Nammu to have some womb-goddesses pinch off this clay and have some "princely fashioners" thicken it, so she can mold it or give birth to it:

Mix the heart of the clay that is over the abyss,
The good and princely fashioners will thicken the clay,
You,[Nammu] do you bring the limbs into existence;
Ninmah [earth-mother or birth goddess] will work above you,
The goddesses [of birth]... will stand by you at your fashioning;
O my mother, decree its [the newborn's] fate,
Ninmah will bind upon it the image (?) of the gods,
It is man ....
