I did the Stations first, to stay up from off my knees before getting down again for the Rosary, and I couldn't remember the Mysteries, making all Three Kinds a truism for me for the first time in my life! I could remember one or two from each of the Mysteries, but had to see a nun there, to get all five, before I started. I felt like a dunce, and of course, I was going''round showin' everyone I WAS a dunce too! The Rosary was more difficult, because when I used to say the Rosary, if in a hurry, I would in my head, kill the Our Father's and Hail Mary's, but in those days, I was drug free. You cannot speed through yer prayers in your head, without moving your lips, and remember where you are, when you want to have a draw of hash, but you will not, because you want to be a new person.
But, Elizabeth, and do believe me, for I am just telling you how it was, as I half sat and half knelt - you know what I mean - when the knees are nearly raw, it suddenly struck me right up the side of the face: What's happening here? I confess my sins with great humility - I mean, you know, really working at it - and I am getting these full in the light of a room fully sun-lit, looks from the priest, as if he wanted to hold my left ankle, and lower me down to suffer in hell for a few minutes you know! And I was as sincere as I could be, although i have always been a bit of a character. So I looked back at him a few times, as if to say, Yea, so what! I am here for confession, not your looks of confusion, and abject misunderstanding!

Dear Elizabeth: I was a good boy until I reached 13; brought up Roman Catholic, and as often, a Dad who was so bright he was a perfectionist, and so you know what I went through! His orders: I was to grow up to be either a doctor (it would be good to specialize, or be a priest, for the family's sake), or a priest, and most do not know, a priest in the family virtually admits all of the family to heaven. Few know this today, but thought/taught then.
At 13 however, I stumbled and fell hard, and left the denomination, and throwing out the baby with the bathwater, I also left Christianity, because of the very same reason you note of above! I thought, because RCC is the only True Church instituted by Christ to give grace to anyone, and always by a priest, well, I do love this older lady so very much, and she knows so much about things I knew absolutely nothing about at 13 some years ago, when nearly all my age, knew little to nothing! Now you know I am over 100!
At 25, having had a very bold and sinful live to that date, mainly because of my having had much money, done all I could think to do, and was fully wide awake to the nothingness of life here, I was in the process of planning suicide in the new year.
The One I had left behind, knew before I became a teenager, I truly did love Him, and His Son, Christ, and He sent to me, a wild and crazy guy a few years ago, we were really good friends, but he was a new man, and began to tell me about Christ, One I thought I knew a lot about once, but that was picky memory, you know!

**********

The ONE truly know our hearts, and will pursue us in His own way. I ran from Him for a while...so fearful of what people would think. One day He sent the town alcoholic to announce an ongoing revival, and remind me of my promise to come to Him in that revival.(I didn't even know it was in progress!)

Wonderful joy when I let Him do the leading...

There is no king in Italy. The pope is the servant of the servants of God.

Pope

The pope (from Latin: papa; from Greek: &#960;&#940;&#960; &#960;&#945;&#962; (pappas),[1] a child's word for father)[2] is the Bishop of Rome and the leader of the worldwide Catholic Church.[3] In the Catholic Church, the Pope is regarded as the successor of Saint Peter, the Apostle. The current[update] office-holder is Pope Benedict XVI, who was elected in a papal conclave on 19 April 2005.[nb 1]

The office of the pope is known as the papacy. His ecclesiastical jurisdiction is often called the "Holy See" (Sancta Sedes in Latin), or the "Apostolic See" based upon the Church tradition that the Apostles Saint Peter and Saint Paul were martyred in Rome. The pope is also head of state of Vatican City,[4] a sovereign city-state entirely enclaved within the city of Rome.

The papacy is one of the most enduring institutions in the world and has had a prominent part in human history.[5] The Popes in ancient times helped in the spread of Christianity and the resolution of various doctrinal disputes.[6] In the Middle Ages they played a role of secular importance in Western Europe, often acting as arbitrators between Christian monarchs, and averting several wars.[7][8][9] Currently, in addition to the expansion of the Christian faith and doctrine, the popes are dedicated to ecumenism and interreligious dialogue, charitable work, and the defense of human rights.[10][11]

Popes have gradually been forced to give up temporal power, and papal authority is now almost exclusively restricted to matters of religion.[6] Over the centuries, papal claims of spiritual authority have been ever more firmly expressed, culminating in 1870 with the proclamation of the dogma of papal infallibility for rare occasions when the pope speaks ex cathedra—literally "from the chair (of St. Peter)"—to issue a formal definition of faith or morals.[6] The first explicit such occasion (after the proclamation), and so far the last, was the definition of the dogma of the Assumption of Mary in 1950.

I am trying to honestly understand God as described in parts of the Old Testament.You know, the "vengeful" God.

Here is one answer have discovered , I wanted to share this.

"The translations in the Old Testament are much more varied. Each number on the right in the list below is for a different Hebrew word. But they ALL are translated "wrath." The Hebrew language is very precise. Each word has a specifically different meaning. This shows that the translators arbitrarily chose to translate all of these different words as "wrath." But they do NOT all mean wrath

The Hebrew word aph (#639) means rapid breathing in passion.

Chemah (#2534) is defined as hot with passion

Ebrah (#5678) means outburst of passion

Qetseph (#7110) means, literally, a splinter or "chipped off". Freely translated it means to be displeased, to fret or possibly to burst out.

Kaac (#3707)- to be grieved or sorrowful, to be troubled.

All these words have specific meanings which denote a passionate displeasure or a sorrowful troubled spirit, yet they are ALL translated "wrath." This, of course, makes God appear violent, frightening and vengeful, apparently the way the translators chose to present God to the world, a "ferocious" God that agrees with their own theology. A more accurate translation is that God is passionately sorrowful or troubled."

Medieval Inquisition
Punishment
Among the possible punishments were prayer, pilgrimage, wearing a yellow cross for life, banishment, public recantation, or, occasionally, long-term imprisonment. The unrepentant and apostates could be "relaxed" to secular authority, however, opening the convicted to the possibility of various corporal punishments, up to and including being burned at the stake. Execution was neither performed by the Church, nor was it a sentence available to the officials involved in the inquisition, who, as clerics, were forbidden to kill. The accused also faced the possibility that his or her property might be confiscated. In some cases, accusers may have been motivated by a desire to take the property of the accused, though this is a difficult assertion to prove in the majority of areas where the inquisition was active, as the inquisition had several layers of oversight built into its framework in a specific attempt to limit prosecutorial misconduct.
The inquisitors generally preferred not to hand over heretics to the secular arm for execution if they could persuade the heretic to repent: Ecclesia non novit sanguinem. For example, Bernard Gui, a famous inquisitor working in the area of Carcassonne (in modern France), executed 42 people out of over 900 guilty verdicts in fifteen years of office. Execution was to admit defeat, that the Church was unable to save a soul from imagined heresy, which was the goal of the inquisition.[citation needed]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medieval_Inquisi...
"The inquisitorial trial generally favored the prosecution (the Church). Confessing 'in full' was the best hope of receiving a lighter punishment - but with little hope of escaping at least some punishment. And a 'full' confession was one which implicated others, including other family members. It was acceptable to take testimony from criminals, persons of bad reputation, excommunicated people, and convicted heretics. The inquisitor could keep a defendant in prison for years before the trial to obtain new information, and could return them to prison if he felt that the witness had not fully confessed."

Thank you Jesus. More...

"Torture could be used after 1252. On May 15, Pope Innocent IV issued a papal bull entitled Ad exstirpanda, which authorized the use of torture by inquisitors."

Yes!! Jesus had His vicar authorize torture.

"The inquisitions in combination with the brutal Albigensian Crusade were very successful in eliminating opposition and contrast to the Catholic institution. When they started, the other sects were quite strong and growing, but by the 14th century the Waldensians had been driven underground and the Cathars (no relation to Catholics) had been slaughtered en masse or forced to recant"

Jesus wants forced conversions or death.

I am not sure what you are writing about here. And I would rather not make unfounded presumptions....

I don't think I have yelled....If I capitalize something like God's Law, then it is to distinguish it from either man's law, natural law, or man's interpretation of a truth(god's law)....Sometimes I will capitalize a word, just to emphasize it in a particular sentence....

I don't generally answer for others, unless there is an impasse, and I might add something useful in a writing. So can you be specific in addressing me concerning some of God's laws that harm others? In that way I can give a specific answer.

I suspect that you do see the need for laws. And that when one goes outside of them, then a judgement is carried out, which is known as discipline.

Good point.

One problem however. The entire Christian movement depended on a misinterpretation of Jewish thought and belief ... example: King David and others were also referred to as "son of God," "always with God," etc., but in an entirely different sense than that which was applied to Jesus.

More....

There are numerous words in ancient Hebrew for "rule" as in "rule over."

When Genesis says that man shall rule over the other creates, the word used was "raja," which was better translated as "care for" or a very "benign and caring dominion."

I think you are right. Maybe we should look at what the OT verses really say. Maybe we should NOT be using this verse in Genesis as an excuse to desecrate so many species? Just a thought.

Good point.

"Matthew also issued a written Gospel among the Hebrews in their own dialect, while Peter and Paul were preaching at Rome, and laying the foundations of the Church." Irenaeus, Against Heresies, 3:1:1 (c. A.D. 180).

"As Peter had preached the Word publicly at Rome, and declared the Gospel by the Spirit, many who were present requested that Mark, who had followed him for a long time and remembered his sayings, should write them out." Clement of Alexandria, fragment in Eusebius Church History, VI:14,6 (A.D. 190)

"It is, therefore, recorded that Paul was beheaded in Rome itself, and that Peter likewise was crucified under Nero. This account of Peter and Paul is substantiated by the fact that their names are preserved in the cemeteries of that place even to the present day. It is confirmed likewise by Caius, a member of the Church, who arose under Zephyrinus, bishop of Rome. He, in a published disputation with Proclus, the leader of the Phrygian heresy, speaks as follows concerning the places where the sacred corpses of the aforesaid apostles are laid:'But I can show the trophies of the apostles. For if you will go to the Vatican or to the Ostian way, you will find the trophies of those who laid the foundations of this church.'" Gaius, fragment in Eusebius' Church History, 2:25 (A.D. 198).

"Peter...at last, having come to Rome, he was crucified head-downwards; for he had requested that he might suffer this way." Origen, Third Commentary on Genesis,(A.D. 232).

"Thus Peter, the first of the Apostles, having been often apprehended, and thrown into prison, and treated with igominy, was last of all crucified at Rome." Peter of Alexandria, The Canonical Epistle, Canon 9 (A.D. 306).

"[W]hich Peter and Paul preached at Rome..." Lactantius, The Divine Institutes, 4:21 (A.D. 310).

"Peter...coming to the city of Rome, by the mighty cooperation of that power which was lying in wait there..." Eusebius, Ecclesiastical History, II:14,5 (A.D. 325).

"This man [Simon Magus], after he had been cast out by the Apostles, came to Rome...Peter and Paul, a noble pair, chief rulers of the Church, arrived and set the error right...For Peter was there, who carrieth the keys of heaven..." Cyril of Jerusalem, Catechetical Lectures ,6:14-15 (c. A.D. 350).

"And Peter, who had hid himself for fear of the Jews, and the Apostle Paul who was let down in a basket, and fled, when they were told,'Ye must bear witness at Rome,' deferred not the journey; yea, rather, they departed rejoicing..." Athanasius, Defence of his Flight, 18 (c. A.D. 357).

"I think it my duty to consult the chair of Peter, and to turn to a church whose faith has been praised by Paul...My words are spoken to the successor of the fisherman, to the disciple of the cross." Jerome, To Pope Damasus, Epistle 15 (A.D. 377).

We glory in Jesus, not in St. Peter.
Jesus said to St. Peter;
18 And I say to you: That you are Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give to you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever you shall bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.

I do not see the words (ROMAN CATHOLIC) anywhere in the above verse...

I do know that the Apostle Peter said

Act 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

Act 10:35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

Act 10:36 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ:(he is Lord of all:)

NO EARTHLY RELIGIOUS SOCIETY/DENOMINATION ON EARTH HAS EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS.DOMINION,.A FRANCHISE, OR MONOPOLY ON JESUS OR HIS WORD.

YOU ASSUME THAT THAT THE WALL OF THE VATICAN HOLD WITHIN THE ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN..

I HAVE NEWS FOR YOU..

Jesus said

Mat_18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Jesus is in the store front, or the lil church down the street..and you not your conglomerate have do no control His i ternary or agenda.

salvation is free to all

and your church does not hold the copy right

not the patent to God word or his plan of salvation.
