Oh! I got it now! LOL! Sorry. It could happen to anyone! After all, he did reply to you and cowboy has been accused of changing his name a few times. Maybe I should change mine too. So many people claiming to be christians do it so often that I cannot keep up with who is who.
So, humans make mistakes and should be forgiven. Interesting. Odd how only christians believe that they should be forgiven, but they have the toughest time forgiving others. I wonder if jesus ever talked about noticing the log in your own eye before bitching about the speck in someone else's eye.

You are right! Can you forgive me?

One small thing. I reread it a few times and I cannot find where I was so mean! Could you be so kind and help a poor sinner out? Show me what was so mean!

It should be said Black Sheep, that the Catholic Church will Acknowledge that God it a mystery.
Salvation is a mystery.
The Holy Eucharist is a mystery.
We don't have all the answers. In fact, no Christian should claim they do.
One thing I admire about the Catholic Church is how they embrace science. They view science as a great tool to look into the window of God.
That is exactly what Galileo Galilei said!

Hell, pope john paul II came right out and claimed that evolution is true! It only took the catholic 130 years to come around! That is much faster than it took them to admit that the Earth is not at the center of the universe!

One might say that the catholics are on the cutting edge of science!

No what a minute! There is a 13th century shroud with the likeness of a 10th century roman on it! Isn't that proof enough for you?

There is an ossuary with the fake inscription on it!

There is a family tomb with all the names of jesus' family on the ossuaries. There is even one for jesus! One slighting odd fact, an ossuary was for the bones of the deceased. The body would lay in the tomb for a year, then the family would go in and collect the bones and put them in a special bone box. If jesus rose and there was no body, who made the ossuary for nothing? Oh well, you just have to have faith!

The Church probably accepted some aspects of Evolution a hundred yrs ago. Why not?
True, they didn't publicly state it until recently, but that doesn't mean previous Popes and Bishops didn't accept it.

Nothing is a mystery. The prophets and apostles saw clearly, that's why they died for their beliefs. You are a freakshow, you no doubt don't even know your way home from Sears......it's a mystery.
I love talking with atheist. I'm serious. I laugh every time at the smug, snide, sometimes cruel remarks.
It reminds me of that South Park episode with Richard Dawkins, "Go God Go". Hilarious.
And I chuckle because they're usually skinny pimple faced geeks online doing the trash talking. Lol

And the Church probably didn't hurt anyone during the inquisitions an they probably helped millions of jews flee Germany in the late 1903's. Just because we haven't read about, doesn't mean that it is not true!

Ps:....For the tens of thousands of Popes, Cardinals, Bishops, Priests, Monks, Brothers, Nuns, and serving members of the Clergy that have come down through the past 2000 years WHO were kind, honest, caring, compassionate (checkUP who is taking care of the lepers in the Leper Colony in Cuba..for example), dedicated, devoted, and helpful in countries frought with the disasters pertinent to Nature.....you 'Judge' a mere handful of monsters (BobLoblah says that anyOne who harms a child should be strungUP and shot)...you 'Judge' the WHOLE of the Roman Catholic Church on this.

That's called "rationalization."

"Probably?" "Some aspects?" "... they didn't publicly state it?"

Here's some reality...

In 1907, Pope Plus X, condemned together with "Modernism", all the discoveries of modern science which are not approved by the Church

True, in the last 100 years, the RCC has become much more enlightened and supportive of (most) science. But you can't change the past -- which speaks directly to the title of this board.

RCC -- part of the oldest church, of course. Part of the founding church, yep. The only true church? Baloney.

Duh!!! It was and is the world-wide institutional cover-up.... of the largest such scandal in world history.

Hello? Jesus' solely appointed church, uniquely guided in faith and MORALS?

Not a chance. But we fell your pain in the tone of your posts. I'm sorry, it surely hurts.

But facts are facts. Jesus doesn't guide the RCC in morals. Jesus has no culpability in the world's largest child sex-abuse scandal.

In fact....

Samething happened to Michael. He was raised in the catholic church with mommy and daddy and they'd teach him things that he thought were wrong and now it's God's fault. Imagine all the angry atheists out there that had the samething happen to them.

You can neither prove or disprove the existence of a god or gods.

That's why they call it faith.

Wrong again Michael, which is no surprise to me or any
Catholic on this forum. The "only" thing I struggle with is "putting up with" people like you and 4GVN"who have nothing better to do than (IN DESPERATION) continue to criticize, attack, condemn and spread their anti-catholic (hate & hostility) against "my own Catholic faith and the faith of other Catholic Christians who "know the TRUTH".---and ---that TRUE, has, is and will CONTINUE to remain in Jesus Christ and His One True Catholic Church. Continue to REMIND YOURSELF MICHAEL---- for over 2000 years, heretics, false teachers, agnostics and atheists have "come and gone"---YET---the CHURCH---the One True (Universal-Catholic) Church established by Jesus Christ HIMSELF--------"LIVES ON" ---and will continue to ---"LIVE ON"!
