The success of the American economy is built on a number of factors. I wouldnt put whichever religion is the main one being followed at the top of that list. It seems to me that Americans follow a whole number of religions and within Christianity there are 000s of sects. So you cannot claim that the success of America is down to one religious faction. I think it more likely that it is due to hard work, including the hard work of immigrants inc Mexicans ;), and by having an abundance of natural resources.
Why does a "one-true" religion require so many excuses?

South American countries also have an abundance of natural resources. For example, Mexico exports huge amounts of oil to the USA.

In fact, the differences in societies can be seen worldwide, not just in the Americas.

The success of the American economy -- as well as the emerging success of formerly Catholic-majority societies -- have certain things in common. Women's rights is shown to be a major factor.

Bottom line -- the supposed "ONLY TRUE" church was against most of America's Reformation ideals for well over a century. While Protestant/deist societies flourished, traditional Catholic societies remained totalitarian backwaters.

How else can we judge a religion? How do we judge Islam for example?

One real-world, reality-based way is to look at and judge the fruits of that religion.

You willingly choose to live with the fruits of Reformation ideals. I don't blame you. Just stop being a hypocrite.

If you truly believe the title of this board is correct, then walk your talk. If you are skeptical, then stay and enjoy the fruits of the anti-Catholic Reformation and the many anti-Catholic ideals.

The RCC fought democracy for over 100 years. Was Jesus behind that, or is the "one-true" claim nonsense? It can't be both ways.

READ WHAT GOD DID FOR THE GENTILES THROUGH THE SUFFERINGS AND DEATH OF JESUS CHRIST FOR US GENTILES..
Eph 2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Eph 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ,(by grace ye are saved;)
Eph 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Eph 2:7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Eph 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
NOTE-->
Eph 2:11 Wherefore remember,-->that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
Eph 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
Eph 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
Eph 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
Eph 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
Eph 2:17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
Eph 2:18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
Eph 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
Eph 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Eph 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
Eph 2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

In 1776 -- according to perfect RCC teachings, George Washington, James Madison, along with 100% of the rest of America's Founders (Carroll was considered a heretic)-- were all destined for Hell.

According to perfect RCC teaching, when they died, 100% of America's Founders went straight to Hell.

Years later, those teachings changed.

Does that mean that George Washington and others were released from Hell and maybe could be in Heaven today?

There's a good reason the RCC doesn't address such issues.

The concept of "perfect RCC teachings" is absurd at best.

And for most of the USA's history, the RCC was against everything this country stood for.

Who or what changed?

Hint... it wasn't the USA.

Lent is in the Bible
- 40 is the number of judgment and testing (Gn 7:4, Ex 24:18, 34:28, Nm 13:25, 14:33, Jon 3:4).

Christ spent 40 days fasting in the desert before entering into his public ministry (Mt 4:1-11). Plus instructing his disciples on fasting (Mt 6:16-18).

Good post, and I like the logic. Oxbow will no doubt ignore the valid points you raise. He/she prefers private interpretation so that he/she can vent hatred. Oxbow sees no problem in following a newly founded cult to anything Jesus founded. I'm imagining a snake oil salesman scribbling private interpretation on the back of a fag packet. That'll do. I have added sect 42,001. Lots of lovely money (rubs hands):)
Let me see!

1).... roman catholic church currently embroiled in another VATICAN BANK MONEY LAUNDERING SCANDAL.

http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/a-...

2)...Two seperate vatican investigations of the 47,000 nuns in america. The vatican calling the 80 year old nuns RADICAL FEMINISTS.

http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/vatican-thre...

3)....WORLDWIDE sex abuse by some clergy and a coverup by all those who knew about these crimes.

http://www.bishop-accountability.org/WhoWeAre...

4) Today in most of the western world the vast majority of roman catholic don't even practice their faith. According to the bishops in america less than 1 in 4 roman catholics attends mandatory sunday mass weekly. Imagine in a large corporation that only 23% of the workers came to work when required.

The roman catholic church in the western world is flaming out. The vast majority of roman catholics today are very poor, uneducted peasants who live either below the equator or Africa/Asia.

God created two cement tablets with 5 commandments on each. God said if anyone breaks any of these rules and does not repent, you will be sent to a fire pit called hell, where you will burn, and suffer, and scream! and be tortured, and agonize in terrible pain! for ever and ever...

According to the catholic church, the Pope is suppose to be the Vicar of Christ yet does not talk to God.
I thought the Holy Spirit lead the catholic church.
I guess he is busy talking to the dead ; you know Mary etc.
Dan understand what he said.

I was replying to a post that directly inferred that the Pope talked to God as if He was in the room with the Pope all day long.

Of course, you removed all the context and made a silly response.

(lol) Eternal salvation was the theme in most pagan beliefs that came over 1,000 years before the Jesus story. Christianity ran with it and it worked for them.

Baptism, holy sacrificial meal, demons, virgin births, apostles, god/man, angels, all formed the beliefs from long ago that christianity stole and used themseleves.

don't believe me? Read and be enlightened about what came long before Jesus.

strange.
It is some kind of flaw in the Topix algorithm, or perhaps has to do with internet routing, which is complex.

For example, when I post from a McDonald's, it usually says I am in Texas, I think (Houston?), even though I have not left Oklahoma, and even when I am in northeastern Oklohoma, quite q ways from the atexas border.

I would not put much on location oddities on Topix.

I wouldnt believe everything you read on the internet. Some people make up lies deliberately to discredit other points of view. The borrowing is equally as likely to have been the other way around. No one can say for sure as the evidence isnt clear.
