Why don't YOU do the "responsible" thing and explain to me - like I am 8 year old - how those *events of the inquisition* were "responsible" God-loving/fearing actions on the part of the church? While you are at it, explain to me how Jesus would be pleased with how the church has represented him and cared for his flock?

I know you WON'T ... because I know you CAN'T. It is impossible. It is impossible because Jesus would NEVER sanction murder and torture ... but the pope sanctioned it. Clearly, the pope is not following Christ.

I thought I already did. But like a good bigot...you ignored it.
Look, the Catholic Church in Medieval times desperately tried to repel the forces that were surrounding it. The Crusades were first launched to take back lands already conquered my Muslims.
The Turks were on the doorstep to capture Rome too. We won. They didn't succeed.
Yrs later, Protestants used the sins of Catholic troops during the Crusades, to show that the Church sinned. But in fact, its not the people who are sinless in the Catholic Church, its the teachings on dogma and doctrine that is without error. The Crusades were justified. And to be honest, its going to happen again, because there are still people who wish to topple Rome. The Iranians will probably be next. China hates the Church too...
And the Inquisition? Well, learn about the Crusades first. Then you'll see why the Church conducts Inquisitions.
I'm sorry Guest, but murders, tortures rapes were not part of it. Although Catholics most certainly are guilty of it. Especially battle hardened troops.

I agreee. You are silly.

You have listened to propaganda so much, you can't tell what is real and not real....

Catholics didn't go door to door....
Catholics didn't gather up heretics....
Catholics didn't torture and murder....

It was the state(countries) that did these. The CC made inquiry into them(thus the name Inquisitions) under torture from the state(never by the RCC), and formulated an opinion as to whether these allegations of heresy were true or not. If found true, the states executed out their various sentences....

couldnt find it uh?

you could never find any post like that for one simple reason. at no time have I ever indicated that it was on an airplane.

now read learn. DUSTOFF.

that is the key word.

find out what that means and then you might understand the difference between an airplane and a DUSTOFF.

notmally the words that I used were this.

on my way to the killing field, I saw Jesus(not God as you said), and I oftimes compared that to Paul with orders to go kill people.CAPISH?

my question which shows how stupid that you are would be,how in the world could someone get shot out of a airplane? but men were shot out of a helicopter.

the doors were taken off of helicopters so men could be loaded easier.

watch out for the camel that you swallowed.

Pad--you continue to rely on your anti-catholic "pot of propaganda" to bail you out of any discussion. That my friend is the "only thing" that is clear to you. You continue to have "no idea" as to what you are talking about, which is "no surprise to ANY of us Catholics who know the TRUTH of Church History. If you have "any knowledge" of apostolic Church History---of which you obviously have "who rely on "Protestant Propaganda" in order to keep their bible only "leaking" boat from sinking!!
Your post here is down right offensive,and because you really believe that I rely on Protestant propaganda to make a n opinion about the RCC.I was raised a Roman Catholic,lived amongst hundreds of RCs of cultural and thnic baskgrounds which included:Italian,Polish,Slovak ,and Ukrainian Catholics.Oh I forgot the biggest group the I R I S H. So treating me as though I have been brainwashed or completely influenced by Prots is wrong and offensive.

I know just as much about the history of the RCC as you do,and was raised in a strong Catholic family who were very strong in keeping Catholic beliefs close to them.

You are the one who has no clue!

Laying on of hands has ceased....there are NO apostles around today....

Only the apostles/disciples and those they laid hands on had this power...they are all dead.
gonna disagree with you onthis one, hank.

Easter sunday night in 1984 when i first stteped into apulpit for teh first time, God told me that I was one and even before I began to preach, he spoke to me of the book of Romans and pauls testimony, and He reminded me of that day over 20 years before when I laid eyes on Jesus.

that is the first prerquisite of that calling.

the second is that a man has to be chosen. tha was fulfilled in march 1955 when my grandfather died and shortly came back to life and descrbed to me wah he had seen and then told me that he had been set back by the greats in heaven(his words, not mine) to tell me that I ahd ajob to do for the Lord..

third, I have been fortunate to have seen a few miracles in my walk with the Lord that I myself have been a small part of,

God doeesnt remove and hasnt removed any portion of His Word.

For He has placed in the church, first apostles.second prophets.

you really dont think that I have got this smart by myself do you?

and yeah, I have placed my hands on someone and they have received he Holy Ghost.Once, before He ahd called me to preach, He laid it on me to go to this church, and I talked to mom because I just was confused,and she gave me great advice, just go and dont say nothing, God will show you at that right time.

so i sat in the back and the church had prayed for this woman several times and nothing was happening and then God told me to go up and lay hands on here. the crowd was heavy, but when I walked up they moved for me and I was behind her and i told the Pastor, lets pray again and this time God will answer and He did. She received the Holy Ghost.

I know this goes against all that you believe and have been taught, but as I type these words, God is my witness that they are true

He was refeing bac to 20 years when h was in a airplane folks

Thank you Robert. The Inquisitions were started by the Catholic Church to PREVENT chaos and wrongs committed by Catholic majority countries. The Church felt it would be wise to see a fair and easy approach to the matter.
The Spanish Inquisition was the one that receives the spotlight because of the sometime brutal approach by the Spanish Monarchy. It got out of hand, prompting Pope Sixtus to write to the Spanish Monarchy:

"Many true and faithful Christians, on the testimony of enemies, rivals, slaves .... Have without any legitimate truth, been thrust into prison, tortured and condemned, deprived of their goods and handed over to the secular arm to be executed to the peril of souls...setting a pernicious example and disgust to many"

In some cases yes of course they were Catholics....In others no....For example:

"
Protestant Torture

As to the myth that torture was a tactic solely of Catholics, Janssen quotes a Protestant eyewitness to the contrary:
The Protestant theologian Meyfart ... described the tortures which he had personally witnessed ...'The subtle Spaniard and the wily Italian have a horror of these bestialities and brutalities, and at Rome it is not customary to subject a murderer ... an incestuous person, or an adulterer to torture for the space of more than an hour'; but in Germany ... torture is kept up for a whole day, for a day and a night, for two days ... even also for four days ... after which it begins again ...'There are stories extant so horrible and revolting that no true man can hear of them without a shudder.'
(Janssen, XVI, 516-518, 521)"

Isn't it interesting that a Protestant theologian would testify that the torture by Protestants were far worse than those under the Catholic authorities?????
