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 can look that reality in the eye.

Are you saying God commanded you to make statues of Mary and saints? Where is this commandment?
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.

False in its entirety.

No one but God is deified in Catholicism.

Please cite the Catechism with evidence you find to the contrary.

You are correct, they didn't address it directly.

However...

Matthew, Mark, and Luke certainly did address diplomatic immunity as it is being used by the church to block orphans from receiving justice.

Point being --- no ONLY TRUE GUIDED church of Jesus would do the exact opposite of what Matthew, Mark, and Luke all agreed Jesus said about those who harmed children who came to HIM.

Nothing against individual churches, but the leadership is out of control and does need guidance. Maybe the RCC should start listening to Jesus' words again?

LOL Knowledge is the villian only to a narcissistic, self worshiping dishonest god hustler like you - but you are right faith = the opposite oif knowledge (ignorance) for to admit a belief requires faith is an admission the belief can not stand on its own merits. In other words it's pure crap.
Pat

Faith is humble enough to say it does not know(everything), and therefore is enough to know something.

Knowledge without faith understands(knows) nothing.

The saddest point is that the ignorance of this society as it is in decline does not recognize the necessity of faith, and thus like the other nations will die.

The view you express seeks to eliminate faith as unnecessary. It is and will shortlived, as this Age of Relativism sinks under its own weight.

Preston...let me pick your brain
Last night in bible study we were talking about the two witnesses in Revelation 11. I heard Moses, Elijah, John the Baptist, Enoch, Abraham....
who do you think they are?
To be honest I'm not even sure
Churck good friend

I presume the Revelation bible study is geared for a future(near future) apocoplypse.

However, in the past, the two witnesses were known as the Apostles Peter and Paul.(When they died, it was thought Christianity might die....)(You probably heard of Nero as 666, and Rome as the beast.)

Unfortunately, when we try and put names to the two witnesses in the future it may be another 10,000 or 100,000 years, and our understanding of scripture is still in its infancy.

They didn't discover the "New World" - only in the history you want to believe.

This gent actually has very good evidence to support that the Minoans actually travelled here and took back the copper that was mined - during the Bronze Age.

You can go on believing what you will, but it doesn't make it factual.
