I encourage you to stay on the level you are on with Mother Goose, Sponge Bob etc. Simply put you do not want to reach too far intellectually. You could easily get discouraged and end up in a refrigerator box condo in the slums, spouting incoherent phrases abou being molested by Orville Redinbocker.Leave Theology to the Big Dogs.

It is an established maxim and moral that he who makes an assertion without knowing whether it is true or false is guilty of falsehood, and the accidental truth of the assertion does not justify or excuse him.

hey karen, have you ever sopped bean soup with corn bread and got it on your chin before?lol

Do you even have to ask that?
I'm from the south man!
We live on that stuff.
Do y'all cook your's with fat back?
guest first brought up the word "sop", and since I was eating some bean soup and since this is how we do it, grab a piece of corn bread, dip it in the beans and go to town, and if you drop the bread in the beans, not a biggie. use your own method to get it out. since I am civilized, I get it out the best way I can.

another piece of bread works, but a spoon is the easiest.

the point was, that even tho this word "sop" was centuries old, the practice is still the same as it was back at the Lords Supper.

Sheesh.

Go the agnostic boards and swap spit with them.

I'll even tell them you're the most well-informed, rational smiter of the faithful ever and that if he could, Ingersoll himself would come out of his grave so you two could hit his old lecture circuit together.

Better?

DAN, the phrase "arrows in a quiver" is Biblical but it represents the Children that a man has.

My favorite is the one about aliens from a different galaxy coming here millions of yrs ago and planting DNA to kickstart life. lol
Or a comet slamming into Earth and then lightening sparked life- which later evolved into human beings as a result of some fish species having sex with a weird land creature....then another comet destroyed that and then a monkey had sex with a cave man. rotflol.
???

Even though it did for years, the Catholic Church does not dispute evolution today.

RUN CATHOLICS, RUN!! But they can't run from this.

FACT: Matthew, Mark and Luke ALL agree.

There is no such thing as HOLY Diplomatic Immunity from justice for children.

Catholics here cannot look this reality in the eye.

Individual Priests cannot invoke diplomatic immunity. It is the church that makes a claim of immunity on behalf of "priests."

There is no way in Hell that Jesus would guide such a travesty of justice.

Next.....

What are the fruits of Catholicism?

Matthew, Mark and Luke never addressed ANY type of diplomatic immunity.

I never said that.

I DID however, say that God commanded Israel to make graven images of Angels.(Exodus 25: 18-20)

Did Israel worship them? Did they believe God told them to worship the Angels?

Gods jealous of anything that is idolatry. He is not jealous of a image of Mary holding Jesus you knuckle head. ;-)

The commandment on graven imagery pertains to idolatry.
Period.
Whoever's the author of this paste-up isn't licensed to add that line to every commandment, regardless of whoever has accused the Catholic Church of idolatry.
Again, as you doubtless use graven images (money and/or a cross) in your daily life, you acknowledge this reality.
When one seeks to give attributes to any crreated being and place them spiritually on a higher plain than all others and give them super titles such as 'Queen of Heaven', Holy Father, Arch bishop etc. one is attempting to deify that person. When one attributes to a created being that are to be attributed to God alone, the same is true. This has been a progressive process in the RCC. When Mary is ascribed as being sinless (just like Jesus) when Mary was said to have been raised bodily(just like Jesus) when Mary is oft referred to as 'co-meditor', co-redeemer and such, the RCC has sought to elevate her well above what the scriptures do. And to say the very least, it fringes on idolatry. And it takes away from the all sufficiency of Jesus Christ.

Morality are the rules of human group co-operation. They exist in us because they are a benefit to our survival. Civilization could not occur without these rules of co-operation. They evolved in us through natural selection like any other useful trait.
Pat

Nations and civilizations come and go. Born live die. They do not promote evolution.

So if morality evolved from natural selection, and natural selection came from chemicals, and chemicals from atoms, atoms from sub-atomic particles, then you must think protons and electrons, and oxygen, and rocks, and plants, planets and suns are moral....

All these things come and go by natural processes. To say these processes are moral is illogical. Likewise to anthropomorphize these processes into the biological and natural world is more in line with a narcissistic attitude.

I think it easier to believe that God made man in his own image, and that human beings are moral creatures.

No.

People who think it's "sinful" are using the imagery as a proxy for their hatred of the Catholic Church and attempting to cause the division and separation you mention here.

We "do it" because it pleases the eye and glorifies God.
