As for "old hag," you seem to have forgotten how you defended your boyfriend when he kept calling a Catholic mom that, over and over.
You turned on that poor woman like a viper, recently claiming she probably wasn't even Catholic.
With friends like you, who needs enemies? Old coot :o)
Yeah, right, whatever. Hey, you, are you denying you call Catholics clowns, buffoons, dancing monkeys, etc.?

By Supporting the roman catholick church you are just as guilty. It is just as if you were there.you are guilty of the churches crimes changing the laws the sabbath the feast days molestation.

This church is in Fact a mixture of righteousness and evil.

I however know the truth. And it is the church is the woman that sits on seven hills named after seven different gods.And is with out A teacher but for Satan herself.And has deceived the whole world.

The laws are of love and peace.And without them we now live in a sin sick world. And my father Yahweh is not coming back to give you a pat on the back he is coming with a wrath as no man has eveR seen before. Give up your sin And give up this church for it is evil....

And the message will be preached to all the world and then the end will come.

Yahweh Bless You All!!!!!!

Yes you have established you are an ignoramous early on. Thank you. I see you think that celibacy leads to abusing children. You are also very ignorant on that. St Paul was Child abuser according to you. lol What I find disturbing is another self righteous protestant in the form of the JW who makes slanderous accusations with no foundation. Disturbing don't you think?
Why do most catholics and many priests want optional celebacy today?

More than 160 priests just in the city of Milwaukee a few years ago wrote to their bishop wanting OPTIONAL CELEBACY. Just in Milwaukee!!

The nearly 1,000 catholic priests in the FIRST PRIEST ASSOCIATION in america want optional celebacy and they all support the NUNS who are being investigated.

what a mess!

There are no priests who are facing molestation charges active in any Catholic parish per the new guidelines. If there were, I and every Catholic in my parish would be blocking the doors to our Church to keep him out.

Now that the "shoe is on the other foot" and the TRUTH of your Protestant "bible only" sin polluted denominations is un-covered, it finally begins to show what a "hypocrite" you really are,preaching your "goody two shoes" (perfect) ministry ---"THE FACT IS THAT YOU JUST CAN'T TAKE --- the TRUTH of the TRUE heat"---that is "exposing your own hypocricy, sweeping "your own dirt" under the rug and (hiding behind) a bunch of "mis-interpreted, self-interpreted and self-opinionated bible verses that are polluted and inundated with "anti-catholic hate and heresy.

YOUR SHOE IS NOT ON MY FOOT ...IT DON'T FIT...

AND I AINT ATTEMPTING TO PUT IT ON

I DON'T HAVE TO DEFEND A BUNCH OF PREDATORS AND AND PERVERTS, AS YOU DO..

I HAVE NO NEED TO PLAY THE BLAME GAME...

We have never had an event where sin has been covered up and swept under the rug...THERE IS RESPONSIBILITY WITH ACCOUNTABILITY TO GOD
IN OUR FELLOWSHIP.

A HOMOSEXUAL IS GIVEN A HEARING-TRIAL BEFORE THE COUNSEL AND IF CHARGES ARE PROVEN IS DIS-FELLOWSHIP AND CANNOT BE RESTORED..

A PERVERT THAT WOULD/DID MOLEST A CHILD IS DEFROCKED AND TURNED OVER TO THE CIVIL COURT. PRONTO.

THESE AND OTHER DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS HAVE BEEN IN SET IN ORDER SINCE THE LATE 1800'S.

WE HAVE NOT TOLERATED AND WILL NOT TOLERATE COVER-UPS...

To begin with our ministers MUST BE BORN AGAIN Christians...

SET FORTH ...AS APPROVED BY THE CONGREGATION WHERE HE IS A MEMBER.

HE MUST PROVE HIS CALLING TO THE MINISTRY...TO THE COUNCIL BEFORE HE IS ACCEPTED AS A CANDIDATE FOR THE MINISTRY.

IF ONE MISSTEPS... EVEN TO THE POINT OF NOT PAYING HIS BILLS ...HE IS
SANCTIONED.

Certainly He knew that men sin. That is why He said, "Thou SHALT NOT!"

It is also why He forgives, and a grateful heart will cease from sin.

He forgave the woman taken in adultery; then said to her, "Go AND SIN NO MORE LEST A WORSE THING COME UPON YOU."

Where did you find all these 'facts'??? Our insurance company simply added such coverage on their own when the CC problem became so openly known.
We haven't really needed it; I've only known five cases in all my years, and only one of those was a member of our denomination...and he lived halfway across the country from us. Not including Bakker and Swaggart...though those two were not molesting children.
They are all in the articles you routinely dismiss with your holier than thou crap. Keep up the good work Kay everyone knows you are an ignorant, hateful, spiteful, lying, gossipping, back biting hypocrite all facts which you have demonstrated repeatedly. I hope you are proud of that. I really never expect an intelligent or truthful post from you. Truth, decency or reasoned thought are foreign concepts to people like you.

I wonder if Regina thinks saying testicles is a sin.

Maybe she'll chime in and give her perspective .

You're right DS....because we have always had strict child protection programs. A child is never ever left alone at our church. We have background checks for people who are involved with children.
catholic church does have protections programs though...now that they been caught.
what is not being realized by some catholics is this: we go to church on Sunday and weeknight, usually arriving around 20 minutes or so before and socalize, church starts and when it ends, people go home.
now this is in small country churches, so children are with their parents at ALL times, and we dont have the problem that others might have,and if karen was on here she would agree that this is probably the same at her country church.

nope and there you go with the "serious sin again". What was it again about yelling at your neighbor? It's sin but not a serious one?
**not sure if it matters but our church is in a good size building with about 150 members. Maybe your question should be directed towards double-wide churches.
**we did need a multi million dollar building like catholics to worship God. We use something more modest. I'm sure God is impressed though.
In your theology sin is sin, so you are a hypocrite when you admit to be willing to support a sinning pastor, but NOT one who facing molestation charges.

You claim to "know" the Holy Spirit and imply Regina doesn't. Saying "nope" to my question tells me you have no more ability to ferret out sinners in your own congregation than we do. And really, that's not our job now is it? Part of our job and that of the diocese and the Church as a whole is to put in place procedures to protect innocent children from predators. We've done that.

150 members? I guess it's a bit easier to keep tabs on that number vs. 1.2 billion.

There's a reason why Catholic Churches are so beautiful and ornate. It's easy to find out why if you're really interested and not just looking for something to criticize.

This Evening's Meditation
C. H. Spurgeon

----------

"Thy love is better than wine."—Song of Solomon 1:2.
OTHING gives the believer so much joy as fellowship with Christ. He has enjoyment as others have in the common mercies of life, he can be glad both in God's gifts and God's works; but in all these separately, yea, and in all of them added together, he doth not find such substantial delight as in the matchless person of his Lord Jesus. He has wine which no vineyard on earth ever yielded; he has bread which all the corn-fields of Egypt could never bring forth. Where can such sweetness be found as we have tasted in communion with our Beloved? In our esteem, the joys of earth are little better than husks for swine compared with Jesus, the heavenly manna. We would rather have one mouthful of Christ's love, and a sip of his fellowship, than a whole world full of carnal delights. What is the chaff to the wheat? What is the sparkling paste to the true diamond? What is a dream to the glorious reality? What is time's mirth, in its best trim, compared to our Lord Jesus in His most despised estate? If you know anything of the inner life, you will confess that our highest, purest, and most enduring joys must be the fruit of the tree of life which is in the midst of the Paradise of God. No spring yields such sweet water as that well of God which was digged with the soldier's spear. All earthly bliss is of the earth earthy, but the comforts of Christ's presence are like Himself, heavenly. We can review our communion with Jesus, and find no regrets of emptiness therein; there are no dregs in this wine, no dead flies in this ointment. The joy of the Lord is solid and enduring. Vanity hath not looked upon it, but discretion and prudence testify that it abideth the test of years, and is in time and in eternity worthy to be called "the only true delight." For nourishment, consolation, exhilaration, and refreshment, no wine can rival the love of Jesus. Let us drink to the full this evening.

No one express the love of God Like C. H. Spurgeon----------

Where Sinners Go

Play MP3 (Mobile)
Our Daily Bread Radio is hosted by Les Lamborn Read: Romans 5:6-15
God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.—Romans 5:8
Bible in a Year:
Genesis 20-22; Matthew 6:19-34
My friend was having a conversation with a man who didn’t have much good to say about the Christian faith. My friend knew that if he were to sound too “religious,” he would jeopardize any chance to witness. So, in the middle of their discussion, he said,“Hey, Bob, do you know where sinners go?”

“That’s easy,” he replied.“You’re going to tell me they go to hell.”

“No,” my friend responded.“They go to church.”

Bob was speechless. That wasn’t what he expected. He wasn’t ready to hear from a Christian who realized he wasn’t perfect. My friend had a chance to share that Christians understand their sinfulness and their need for continual spiritual restoration. He was able to explain grace—the unmerited favor we have with God despite our sinfulness (Rom. 5:8-9; Eph. 2:8-9).

Perhaps we don’t give those outside the church a clear picture of what’s happening inside. They may not understand that we’re there to praise our Savior for providing “redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins”(Col. 1:14).

Yes, sinners go to church. And sinners—forgiven ones—go to heaven because of God’s grace.

We’re far from perfection, yet perfect forever,For Christ is our righteousness, Lord, and our Savior;No justification for sin can we offer,Yet sanctified fully, we’re now His forever.—LeeA church is a hospital for sinners, not a club for saints.
