I suggest you ask a person in severe pain if prayer helped.
Ask a child that is being abused by her father, as happened to my friend who prayed and prayed and received no help whatsoever.
You need to wake up and stop smelling roses and instead put your fingers on the thorns.
Then you will stop preaching about prayer and start yelping to another human that you hope WILL help you in your time of need.
What makes you think I haven't suffered greatly, or am not doing so now? As it happens there are people on this board who were abused as children by their father, as well as those with serious physical illness, and some with emotional suffering. Some with all of the above.

You presume much, June. I feel sorry for you.

If your prayer was answered, the god would have taken your pain away, and you wouldn't have had any more pain.

You can't play the theology every which way but "right."

Glad you're enjoying the article! Here's more:

"So while many in the media are trying to agitate against the Church, their relativistic understanding would preclude their covering her properly even if they wanted to. They're used to a world of provisional beliefs, such as liberalism and conservatism, which lack defined doctrine or even an institution that could credibly render such and thus are defined only by their adherents. This is much as how we learned the ways of ducks not by consulting a Duck bible or catechism, but by observing their behavior.

But the Church doesn't quack like a duck. She has a magisterium (teaching office) that has set certain doctrines in stone, and a Catholic's relationship with respect to them is neither conservative nor liberal. The relevant terms are orthodox and heterodox or, to use a less fashionable word, heretical."

God is God, not Adam and Eve, nor the snake. That shouldn't be hard to understand.
God gave humans free will, the choice to love Him or not, that's why he allowed them to be tempted. Otherwise Adam and Eve would have been mere robots, incapable of having a truly loving relationship with their Creator. Have you ever considered that? What would you prefer? To have a choice or not?
Maybe. God cast a third of the angels out of Heaven because they rebelled when Satan made his challenge.
Angels had a choice but God will destroy those who don't follow His commands.
Would you sentence your baby child to a life of hardship simply because he tested the limits?
Your child would love you but you would be condemning that child to death for an infringement.
Bears some thought.

I agree that killing those they labeled as heretics and witches WAS set in stone.

Humans never did have faith that the gods would or could handle human affairs on their own ... and that is why the humans (holding high the banner of religion) punished each other.

If you want the job done "right," you best do it yourself.

Sounds like I've gotten to you, June. Or someone did.
Dragging out the archives is a sure sign of it.
We are all sinners. A Christian is to admit that they are the first among sinners.

Again, you're presuming that's why I feel sorry for you...because you've renounced God. No, that isn't why. I can tell you that you're making a mistake, but only God reads your heart in that regard. It's not up to me. No, that isn't the reason.

Bishop meant and means pope. That is why the pope is referred to as the "bishop" of Rome.

If Clement was the first notorious pope ... what happened to Peter the Jew who was supposed to be the first and most famous pope of all, whose name was given to him BY Jesus "after" Jesus' supposed death on the cross ... no less?
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >

There were presbyter-bishops as early as the first century

Clement was the first of early Rome's most notable bishops

"This may offend modernistic ears, but it's the only way to not quack like a duck -- and end up quacking differently in every time and place. The terms conservative and liberal are relatively new; in saner ages, there was no right and left, only right and wrong. That is the mindset we must recapture today, and it's why I long ago stopped calling myself a conservative. Why be devoted to conserving the decades-old victories of heretics -- or as some today call them, liberals? Why be on the right side of the political spectrum when even that is well to the side of Truth? And there is only Truth...and everything else.

And everything else is nothing at all."

In the first century the same pope preached of the coming of the end of the world, and suggested that believers should be patient.

:)
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>

From the book,“History of Christianity,” by Clyde L. Manschreck … comes the following ……..

Noncanonical writings indicate that the imminent end of the world was strongly expected among Christians at the turn of the first century, even though many unfulfilled years had passed and some discontent and impatience had developed. Clement of Rome inveighs against this discontent. Christ was expected to return triumphant over all enemies. There was to be a resurrection of the dead and a day of judgment. Christians were enjoined to watch and be ready. Such allusions are found not only in Clement of Rome, but also in the Didache, Barnabas, and Papias.

We all know that men have two heads for a sinister reason, and after all, with all those women tugging at Jesus' nighties, it must have been torture to master both heads and kept them in solid alignment to holy commands from on high.
Then he turned Vestal Virgins into nuns so they could tempt celebate priests.
Too many of them were ugly so they then found little boys.
