Why don't you name those 42,000 different denominations, and list their differences?
I listed this previously, for you, on June 5th, however we as Catholics ALL KNOW that you'd rather rely on your distorted and confused "personal opinion" --as the "final authority" by rejecting the TRUTH when it is put in front of you! You, like other, Protestants, who are in "denial of the truth" need to have the TRUTH of biblical and historical church history and TRUTH of Jesus Christs ONE TRUE CATHOLIC CHURCH consistently repeated to you over and over and over again, until MAYBE---JUST MAYBE---it MIGHT sink in!!

ALL 42,000+ "half-truth' Christian denominations are contradictory to each other, conflicting to each other, and inconsistent with each other.

The "total reliance and basis" of EVERY ONE these 42,000+ Protestant beliefs, is to aggressively attack, THE TRUTH and to judge and condemn over 2000 years of the TRUTH of Jesus Christ and His One True Apostolic Catholic Church. EVERY ONE of these 42,000+ Protestant beliefs CANNOT exist or "stand on their own beliefs" WITHOUT criticizing the TRUTH OF HISTORY, by "self opinionating" the TRUTH OF THE TRUE INTERPRETATION of the bible in 397AD and without spreading their "hate and hostility" toward Jesus Christ HIMSELF and HIS Historically and biblically PROVEN---- ONE TRUE CHURCH---(the bride of Christ) v

Hello Aviela new friend
I am afraid you are making a hasty generalization from a fallacy, or an overgeneralization from bias or both.
First if the RCC was evil,(Proverbs 10:27
The fear of the LORD prolongs days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.) it would have died out. Notice however the opposite is true, that evil being short-lived, how many "so-called" Christian religions(actually heresies), and movements have perished.
True the RCC has been around for a long time, thus it has a lengthy history. And that some of the fruit from the RCC falls off, and decays on the ground. Thus, the tree is good, and the fruit is good, but when individuals are tempted and sin, then they fall from the tree....
Hello Robert, nice to meet you. Do you honestly think the Catholic church has produced good fruits. Do they teach accurate Bible knowlegde. Didn't the pope say not to us use God's name? How can he say that when God's Jehovah was found over 7000 thousand times in the orginal scriptures and scrolls. Religions that refuse to use God's name do so so that they don't have an accounting to the true God

HOJO........HOW DO YOU KNOW that a molesting priests never apologize to their victims!
MICHAEL says..........SHOW ME EXAMPLES!
Give me one example where a molesting priest went to authorities to turn himself in because the priest in the confessional told him to?
NEVER HAPPENED! WHY?
If you stole a bicycle the priest HEARING YOUR CONFESSION would tell you to return it to the owner. Right?
Doesn't the priest hearing confession have an moral obligation to express to the molesting priest to do the right thing before he is absolved from sin? If you are not going to serve justice for your sin, than why is the sin absolved?
....something is terribly wrong hojo!
YOU ARE THE ONE Michael, that keeps (exaggerating) the claim that "NONE of these molesting priests have "ever" made restitution with their victims. I'm saying that "some have and some haven't", I don't know what %--- however (common sense) says that it is NOT 100% either way!! Again--YOU ARE THE ONE that is making the outrageous, ridiculous claim that NONE HAVE...... It is up to you to prove that NONE HAVE!--You are the one that keep going off the "deep end" with these 100% claims.

Question...JUST WHO'S SIDE ARE YOU ON ANYWAY...

THE HEART OF YOUR

The only thing being exposed is the unrelenting ignorance being practiced by you and your fellow bigots. You have no theological argument that can hold up against any Catholic teaching.
So, you use the scandal as a diversion technique.

Above, you used quotes from sacred scripture in an attempt to validate your personal views of the Church. This is using the Bible for your personal vendetta.
That's deceitful Confrint. You ordained yourself a pastor and claim to be called by God to be an authority on sacred scripture. Why then, do you manipulate the verses?
Also, the Pentecostal community has always had as many offenders as the CC. Most of you are in compounds, correct? So who knows what y'all do behind those doors.
If you were truly a man of God- defender of truth- you'd cease using a topic like child sexual abuse to win an argument. You know the stats. God knows you know the stats. God also knows why you'd bring it up in a debate too!

Yes. I understand. I have been re-evaluating my time spent on the threads....

Most of the arguments on here are from repetition and generalizations, and are fallacious as arguments. Undoubtedly, it is a result of attacking others and has become so ingrained in this society that reconciliation and constructive criticism is considered evil. Such as it is....

If I do stay on the thread, it would be for my edification, that I might learn not to be as judgemental as I see those on this thread are....

At this time I really see very very little in the way of exhorting one to a closer walk with Jesus on this thread. And that is to bad.

I am afraid, I am not prepared to re-enter into a discussion. Nor did you respond to my answer. Instead you merely repeated your accusation(by innuendo), and added to it.

My advice is to ignore the miltant atheists Heckle and Jeckle, they have nothing to offer.

AT YOUR WHIM..
SUCH AS THE LIST OF THE BROTHERS OF CHRIST ETC..
AND
ADD TO AT YOUR PLEASURE...such as your papal dynasty in Rome...
or immaculate conception...

You are really some kind of...a piece of work...

now you throw a hissy fit because your (so called)

"ONE TRUE APOSTOLIC CHURCH."...

HAS PROVEN ITSELF TO BE A "PERVERTED UNTRUE APOSTATE RELIGIOUS

ORGANIZATION." WHO'S SINS HAVE FINALLY CAUGHT UP WITH IT.

YOU MADE THE CHOICE TO BE A PART OF IT...NO ONE FORCED YOU TO.

SO IF YOU GO DOWN WITH THE SINKING SHIP ...it' your choice

We have worked feverishly and relentlessly to help you find the

truth.

Heb 2:1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.

Heb 2:2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;

Heb 2:3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

so what more can be said..

You have cast your lot with those that molest Children...

and become guilty of their sins before the world by association.

The Bible says..

Eph 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

Eph 5:7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

Eph 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

Eph 5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

Eph 5:10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

Eph 5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

Eph 5:13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

If you don't like the light... being shined into the darkness...

then come out of it, and step into the light yourself.

What many here don't want to admit;

"In a 1984 survey, 38.6 percent of ministers reported sexual contact with a church member, and 76 percent knew of another minister who had had sexual intercourse with a parishioner.[xiii] In the same year, a Fuller Seminary survey of 1,200 ministers found that 20 percent of theologically “conservative” pastors admitted to some sexual contact outside of marriage with a church member. The figure jumped to over 40 percent for “moderates”; 50 percent of “liberal” pastors confessed to similar behavior.[xiv]

In 1990, in a study by the Park Ridge Center for the Study of Health, Faith and Ethics in Chicago, it was learned that 10 percent of ministers said they had had an affair with a parishioner and about 25 percent admitted some sexual contact with a parishioner.[xv] Two years later, a survey by Leadership magazine found that 37 percent of ministers confessed to having been involved in “inappropriate sexual behavior” with a parishioner.[xvi]

In a 1993 survey by the Journal of Pastoral Care, 14 percent of Southern Baptist ministers said they had engaged in “inappropriate sexual behavior,” and 70 percent said they knew a minister who had had such contact with a parishioner.[xvii] Joe E. Trull is co-author of the 1993 book, Ministerial Ethics, and he found that “from 30 to 35 percent of ministers of all denominations admit to having sexual relationships—from inappropriate touching to sexual intercourse—outside of marriage.”[xviii]

According to a 2000 report to the Baptist General Convention in Texas,“The incidence of sexual abuse by clergy has reached ‘horrific proportions.’” It noted that in studies done in the 1980s, 12 percent of ministers had “engaged in sexual intercourse with members” and nearly 40 percent had “acknowledged sexually inappropriate behavior.” The report concluded that “The disturbing aspect of all research is that the rate of incidence for clergy exceeds the client-professional rate for physicians and psychologists.”[xix] Regarding pornography and sexual addiction, a national survey disclosed that about 20 percent of all ministers are involved in the behavior.[xx]"

"..in the authoritative work by Penn State professor Philip Jenkins, Pedophiles and Priests, it was determined that between .2 and 1.7 percent of priests are pedophiles. The figure among the Protestant clergy ranges between 2 and 3 percent.[xxii]"

Really? You mean only saw what you wanted to see again instead of the truth? Funny how you and LTM never see things but if your name is in a post you always see that. lol There is more, but keep your head in the sand and ignore all that was already posted so you can remain an ignoramous and jump in bed with anyone that will slander the church.

Reformation.com lists allegations involving 838 Protestant ministers who have been accused of sexually abusing children:

147 Baptist pastors

251 fundamentalist/evangelical pastors

140 Anglican/Episcopalian Ministers

38 Lutheran Ministers

46 Methodist Ministers

19 Presbyterian Ministers

197 misc. Church Ministers

Katoliko, a Roman Catholic website, publishes excerpts from various media sources about abuse by Protestant clergy, church staff, and volunteer workers in an attempt to balance the attacks on the Catholic Church. See: http://www.katoliko.com/

The Cyber Grotto of the Modern Church of Satan, perhaps reacting to false claims of Satanic Ritual Abuse of children during the late 20th century, reported a group of "Christian Sex Crimes" in 2006-OCT.

Multiply.com listed a lenghty list of "Evvangelical [sic] Ministers who 'love' the children of the world" in their journal titled "Christian Biblical Errancy Debate" at: http://wheresjesus.multiply.com/

A listing of many additlonal allegations of child molestation is contained in "THE CHRIST OF GOD IS MAGNIFICAL's Blog" on MySpace.

No Catholics here;

"In the last three years, an average of 23 new articles each day have appeared in secular media sources revealing sexual abuse allegations arising in Protestant churches in the United States. Protestant denominations have been tempted to call sexual abuse a "Catholic problem"; this is simply not true. Within the past eight years, verdicts, judgments, or settlements exceeding hundreds of millions of dollars have been levied against Protestant churches for sexual abuse allegations arising from children participating in ministry programs."

http://www.buildingchurchleaders.com/articles...

"One of the most striking aspects of the Protestant clergy sex abuse pattern is that most people don't realize it is a pattern. The Catholic Church has taken a well deserved beating in the courts and in the court of public opinion as former altar boys, orphans and ordinary parishioners come forward with appalling stories of sex abuse. Yet equally egregious violations by Protestant clergy fail to generate the same level of outrage. Why?"

Why do we largely overlook the horrific pattern of Protestant pedophilia and sexual exploitation? Here are a few factors to consider:

The Catholic Church is easier to think of as a monolithic entity. That means it is easier for the press to cohere the abuse incidents into a single story and our brains to grok it. The idea of one big conspiracy appeals to us: "The Church" did it and then covered it up.

The centralized hierarchy of Catholicism makes Catholic offenders easier to sue and guarantees deep pockets. The lawsuits in turn both generate their own news cycle and bring victims out of the closet.

Since most Americans are Protestants, the Catholic sex abuse scandal is a story about "them." Protestant Pedophilia is a story about "us," which makes it less gratifying and more uncomfortable."
