As someone who is catholic and was raised in the faith, I find this truly offensive that the Pope would make a statement like this. It is making me seriously consider leaving the church.(((( As long as popele believe in God and the holy trinity, why does it matter whether they believe as catholics, methodists, lutherans, etc?)))) I think Benedict has gone too far with this statement and I do believe it is going to hurt the catholic church in the long run.

I will only tell you one thing pray and as God for wisdom, and a teachable Spirit.
I learned a lesson I will never forget, God uses the people you think less liking to be used of God.
My husband and I were walking one day and a little man he was dirty and in need of a bath.
I thought he was a wino looking for change, he looked right at me and keep coming in my direction I tried to side step him, he just smiled and gave me a rolled up piece of paper with a Bible scripture on it , Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strenghtens me.
If I had of walked away from that man I would have missed out on a wonderful Blessing , God let me see Him in that dear man regardless what the outside looked like he was beautiful.
People when they ask me have you seen God I can say yes.
And God spoke to me through this dear man.

Checking out "bogus" anti-catholic websites is (your expertise) Michael! In fact, you have a monopoly on anti-catholic "junk articles" and liberal "hack" writers, whose main purpose is to distort, manipulate and twist the truth of what the Catholic Church actually believes and teaches.
DOUBLE BUSTED and DOUBLE UNBELIEVABLE
HOJO who are you busting now, not everyone is going to love us for who we are.
Has anything good come out of the catholic church to make us believe it is the one true church of Jesus Christ.
If it is God's Church did hHe command The Pope to kill all who wouldn't side with the catholic teachings, Did God give the command not only to kill, them but to torment them as well and inflict as much pain as possible.
Did God till the Pope it is alright to rape little children and beat them if they told.
And if Peter was the first Pope I can a sure you, he would never have agreed to this in Gods Holy Spirit Church .
So your church is not of God I have given you what I believe is the reason why it isn't.
Now you tell me why you believe it is. OK

If you were (actually) a part of the body/Bride of Christ, your Christianity would be manifested in Jesus Christ and His One True Apostolic Catholic Church--which IS (in fact) the Bride of Christ!! You may claim to be part of the body of Christ, which is nothing more than Protestant (bible only) half-truth Christianity--but NOT the Bride of Christ.

If I were a part of your One Truly Apostate Catholic Church--which IS (in fact) a part of the of anti-Christ...I would be gambling the fate of my never dying soul upon conjecture fables and fabricated fallacies as your are...

I will take the scriptures that JESUS TAUGHT...THE APOSTLES for my rule of conduct...

Jesus said

Luk_24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

Luk 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

Luk 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Luk 24:48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

Joh_5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

JESUS NEVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT ROME...PAPAL SUCCESSION OR ANY THE REST OF YOUR FABLES.

The Apostle Paule told Timothy...

2Ti 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;


2Ti 4:2 ---> Preach the word; <--

be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

2Ti 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

He knew there would blind individuals such as you that would come along ...

The FACT is that (every Catholic on this forum, including all 1.168 Billion Catholics throughout the world, follow, adheres to and believes in the Saving Grace of Jesus Christ and His One True Apostolic Catholic Church, AND--- has (for over 2000 years).... Each and every day at Mass, we accept Christ as Our personal Savior, and "take the (TRUE INTERPRETATION of the Scriptures as Jesus taught, not only our "rule of conduct" but for our personal faith, Salvation and His Sacrificial gift in the Eucharist, the TRUE body and blood of Christ (John 6:47-59) as the FULLNESS of the Faith and the FULLNESS of the Truth....... Unfortunately for you Confrinting, your distorted and perverted "personal opinionated" bible only heretical preaching has polluted your mind, heart and soul with so much anti-catholic hate and hostility that your half-truth, half-heresy Christianity has "deaden your spirit to comprehend the TRUTH of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ and His One True Catholic Church

As a true follower of Jesus Christ, along with my other Catholic brothers and sisters in Christ, who know, believe, adhere to and comprehend the TRUTH of Jesus Christ and His (historically and biblically proven One True Church, I will repeat what you and other Protestant, atheists and agnostics still do not seem to understand..... It is the difference between TRUTH of Christian doctrine vs personal conduct, The Church teaches that is is wrong to kill, commit adultery, rape, etc. however, that does not guarantee that a Catholic (or a Protestant) will never kill, rape or commit sin, does it!! Just because a Catholic kills someone, doesn't negate the TRUTH of the Churches teaching that we are not suppose to kill. The issue here is DOCTRINE VS CONDUCT! You keep harping about the conduct of certain members of the Catholic Church in the middle ages and in the 20th century regarding abuse. The Church was built upon the blood of martyrs who were murdered for their faith in Christ. Saints, Popes and Bishops all stood firm in their commitment to Christ even though they knew that it meant certain death. In addition, Protestants have also killed Catholics, however, I don't judge either Protestants or Catholics upon the CONDUCT of some of their members. I judge them on whether they teach the TRUTH ion accordance with Sacred Scripture and tradition. There is a BIG DIFFERENCE!!! No one is denying that the Catholic Church (or Protestants) have sinners. This is precisely why Christ established His Church---"to save sinners"! Just because some of its members (stray and sin) doesn't mean that it was not founded, initiated and established by Jesus Christ to teach His infallible TRUTH. If you are going to the Catholic Church by the CONDUCT then you should "throw out" your bible, because (every one) of its authors were sinners. Moses was a murderer, David was an adulterer and Paul said "I am the worst of sinners". This only shows how duplicitous, warped and confused that Protestants are in their ingrained, distorted and perverted, anti-catholic thinking

The REAL Church is invisible. It is made up of those truly Born Again individuals who have accepted Jesus' sacrifice for them. He said that without being born again, one cannot 'see' the Kingdom of God. One cannot 'join' it by shaking a hand, or being received into a denominational group.
The Lord knows His own, and there are some in many different groups. That is what makes it invisible. No one denominational 'church' can lay claim to His church.
He doesn't make it hard. He paid our debt for us, and allows us to choose to answer His call...hojo:
Interesting idea that you say about the Church that Jesus instituted and initiated in the bible-- however-- it is "nothing more" than your own (personal opinion) which does not (in any way, shape or form) coincide or parallel with True Apostolic Church History that has been recorded for over 2000 years...... Throughout the centuries, Apologist historian authors and writers "both Catholic and Protestant" do not agree" with your "made up conclusions". If you would take time to "study" the truth of true church history, you would not be making "ridiculous statements" about an "invisible church" which does not exist!!!! JETHRO:you say it does not exist? can you prove that? of course not,there is no corroborating evidence to support the theory,just like your belief that the catholic church is the true apostolic church,you can not prove it,there is nothing to support the theory,it is a creation of mans,there history of horrors alone proves that in no way shape or form the C.C. is the church in the book of mathew which you rely on to support your theory,UNLESS you can show a passage that states jesus stating a name of his church,no one can say they are the true church,show corroboration,you can't,you rely on a man in a fancy outfit that he is telling you the truth,and he can not even prove that the C.C. is the true church.you do not have apostolic succession, so it is impossible to have a succesive apostolic church.the book of timothy debunks their claim,only one person can mediate between man and god and that is jesus. the pope is no one devine he is just the head of a man made church.he is chosen by men not by any devine person or spirit.no church on earth is the true church if one exists.

This Year, Live by the Beatitudes (7)
Lev 8-10, Matt 5:13-26, Ps 42:1-5, Pr 1:20-23
'Blessed are the peacemakers...' Matthew 5:9

The story's told of two blokes who were arguing about religion. One of them finally shouted,'Ok, you serve God your way and I'll serve Him His way!' When we make our opinions a precondition for loving one another, we end up alienating one another. Much of what we fight about doesn't matter. Jesus said,'By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.'(John 13:35) It's not enough to love peace, you've got to become a peacemaker. When a fight erupted in the New Testament church over eating certain foods, Paul stepped in:'Let us stop passing judgement on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister. I am convinced, being fully persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself. But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for that person it is unclean. If your brother or sister is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by your eating destroy someone for whom Christ died. Therefore do not let what you know is good to be spoken of as evil. For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and receives human approval. Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and mutual edification...So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God...'(Romans 14:13-22) So, be a peacemaker!
The Word for Today
**********

Another tall order, for me at least. I read a book called The Peacemaker by Ken Sande, given to me by a dear friend, who noticed that this was not my forte. I enjoyed both the book and the little studies and exercises within it. Indeed, I have never been much of a 'peacemaker', the opposite is true, I was always more of a provoker and a confronter, great for my profession but more productive if done in a kind and loving manner, terrible for personal relationships. People do not like to be confronted, provoked, disagreed with or disrespected. I am very grateful to God that this is not an aspect of myself that I have to develop on my own. I am also thankful for the help I have received in my development thus far. Please, Lord, help all Christians to develop and grow into the role of 'peacemakers' as is Your will for us, in Jesus' name, Amen.
Peace and love and understanding <3

Stop being a clown. None of the links you gave before even existed. Above all, the RCC's own John Jay Report refutes your lie.

And besides, I am talking about the MASSIVE WORLDWIDE COVER-UP -- using the name of Jesus to facilitate the COVER-UP, duh!!! So stop trying to change the subject.

But if believing your church is no worse than the South Baptists somehow deludes you, then why even post here?

Again, simple moral logic.....

It is very, very unlikely that Jesus appointed the perpetrator of the LARGEST CHILD SEX-ABUSE COVER-UP IN WORLD HISTORY.

More simple moral logic.....

No self-respecting God would want his name associated with the LARGEST CHILD SEX-ABUSE COVER-UP IN WORLD HISTORY.

The same applies to scandal-ridden church banks.

Say hello to true, irrefutable moral logic.

I think Catholics here owe Jesus an apology.

Consider the ways in which the RCC has used the name of Jesus to facilitate the COVER-UP the largest child sex-abuse scandal in WORLD HISTORY.

DUH!!! Jesus would not want His name to be used for such purposes.

The Pope apologized to the world to the world, but I don't recall the vicar of Christ publicly apologizing to Jesus for falling down on the job for decades (if not centuries).

PS -- even after the lame, reluctant apology -- forced finally by a police raid in Belgium -- the covered continued, as witnessed by Ireland being moved to break diplomatic relations with this absurd church.

A real U.S. Catholic would tell Jesus they are sorry and then move to a Catholic-majority society to do penance. But most use the Church as a rabbit's foot.
